Philip Jose Farmer, another ethnic fetishist.
I’ve started re-reading the Riverworld science fiction series by Philip Jose Farmer, whose background is described here. As regards plot and writing, it’s fairly good, but from a racialist perspective, it is not good at all.
I’m mostly through book one, but have extensively flipped through the other volumes, especially book two, to get a feel for the extent Farmer’s racial perspective filter though the series. Farmer was, perhaps not surprisingly, an extreme racial liberal, vehemently pro-Jewish and anti-Nazi, as well as sympathetic to Blacks and to the “civil rights” struggle. And, oh yes, Black male-White female miscegenation is A-OK; accepting that is a sign of progressive mental advancement, don’t you know.
It is perhaps also not surprising that there is one ethnic group that fairs quite poorly (at least so far) in Farmer’s SJW storytelling: Italians. Surprise! With Farmer’s background and his extreme SJW anti-racist cuckiness, I’m shocked – shocked I say! – that he expresses the typical disdain of his type for White ethnics.
This, Italians – particularly Italian males – are portrayed by Farmer as brown-skinned, beak-nosed, no-chinned skulking low-character flotsam and jetsam, negatively contrasted to, say, sturdy Israeli heroes or proud, sticking-it-to-Whitey Negroes. And, by the way, the Italians so described are northern Italians, not even southerners.
Farmer represents a very real mix of character traits and opinions that is not so very rare – and not rare at all in Der Movement.
Maybe there really is something to this “high trust hunter-gatherer” paradigm after all.
We can consider Farmer’s ethnic depictions to be akin to what we get from pop culture, particularly from a heavily Jewish and Leftist Hollywood, with TV shows and movies that often use non-White actors and actresses (or real-life individuals adopted into Italian families) to play ethnically Italian characters (Saving Private Ryan, The Wedding Planner, A Bronx Tale, Ugly Betty, Cheers, Jersey Shore…the list goes on). Of course, for perpetuating certain Italian racial stereotypes, we also have Der Movement’s favorite movie, True Romance.
We can call this phenomenon: The Invented Italian. People with an ethnic axe to grind invent an image of Italians for public consumption that is at best misleading and at worst intentionally mendacious and racially destructive. The Invented Italian: a cringing, brown-skinned, non-European, non-White, Arabo-Latino-Mulatto-Afrowop. If Jesse Jackson and Rudy Giuliani were cast by Hollywood – a la Saving Private Ryan – Jackson would be cast to play an Italian, and Giuliani cast as some non-Italian White character. After all, Spielberg specifically chose mixed-race Vin Diesel (he of ambiguous but “colored” paternal parentage) to play a wop after seeing him in the semi-autobiographical Multifacial, concerning the struggles of a multiracial actor. Remind me again what character Dennis Farina played in that movie…oh, that’s right, surname Anderson. Amazing. Or, more simply: Jewmazing.
Now, I can imagine some arguing: “hey, there really are genuine Italians who are very dark-complexioned, who look strange, etc.” These people may cite certain celebrities or people they personally know, or whatever. While that statement is technically true, it is also true that there are outlier phenotypes in every ethnic group and it is usually not the practice to substitute outliers for the norm. When extreme outliers are misrepresented as the norm, intentionally reinforced by using members of other, racially alien, groups to represent the false norm in question, then we have a case of an “invented” ethny. Ethnies should be judged – for better or worse – on their actual reality, not judged based on bizarre Hollywood casting choices or effete cuck sci/fi writers’ stylistic descriptions.
As to why this occurs – that can be an analysis for another day. Suffice to say when it applies to Jewish/Leftist Hollywood, they probably have an agenda – conscious or subconscious – to divide Whites against each other by utilizing misleading characterizations of certain European ethnies so as to exaggerate distinctiveness and abrogate racial solidarity among European-Americans.
On a humorous and related side note, this a fresco from a fifth century BC Etruscan burial chamber.
A reasonable assumption is that the Etruscan art portrayals reflected how they actually looked (similar to the ancient Greeks, whose portrayals were similar). While Type I activists may look at the fresco and see Dolph Lundgren, I see swart, dark-eyed individuals with black curly hair, if anything darker than the average modern Italian. And yet, Der Movement tells us the original pre-Roman population of Italy were akin to modern Swedes, subsequently darkened by the “racial morass” of Rome. Sure they were. Hope the eye doctor visit turns out well.
