Snow-filed.

So there is this tony little area just outside of Philly called Lower Marion. It's where Kobe Bryant played his high school ball, and it is the start of what is known around here as the Main Line. Which, around these parts, is the zip- code with the most dollars.

Anyway, as is always the case with these types of communities, a Negro sighting can quickly send the local police into action.

"Lower Merion's median income is $115,226, and the township of 58,000 is 85 percent white. Saldana, who grew up in the township, is Hispanic; her family hails from Peru. Her work as a translator takes her into constant contact with minority communities, and she thought she should make the incident public after her 10-year-old son's reaction to seeing the shovelers sitting in the snow.

"My son asked me, 'Are they in trouble? Did they do something wrong?' And I didn't know how to answer him," said Saldana, 49. "That question from him really left me perplexed."

The description she posted to the Lower Merion Community Network forum on Facebook prompted outrage, with more than 600 people commenting, many concerned about the incident's racial overtones.

The other shovelers questioned by police were also black, Walsh said.

Race had nothing to do with police conduct, Walsh said, and enforcing the ordinance, which requires any adult conducting door-to-door solicitation to obtain a permit, is commonplace. In the last year, police conducted 140 such stops, he said.

"There's a really good reason for that, because, business or not," he said. "Residents can be assured Lower Merion police have checked them." [Source]

I am not sure how many of you reading this live on the East Coast. But there is a long standing tradition here of folks going door to door and offering to shovel your snow after a big storm for a small price.

For those of you who don't think that racism and "color arousal" issues still persists in America, ask yourselves this question: Do you think if those folks going around and offering to shovel snow were from the majority population, they would have been held and told to sit in the snow, while the Gestapo police stood over them and checked them out?

If you do, I have a wonderful antique bell here in Philly with a slight crack on the side that I would love to sell you.

But I want to be fair, so I will give you the response from my friends in Lower Marion, Township.

"A woman who witnessed police interacting with two men her father hired to shovel snow Tuesday worried they were questioned because of their skin color."

No mam. The police have an explanation for what you saw.

"Anti-solicitation ordinances like Lower Merion's are common and cops say they are a useful tool.

The 1964 ordinance, most recently amended in 2009, restricts "sale of goods, wares or merchandise," including magazines, home repair devices and services and contributions to some groups. When the ordinance was written, door-to-door vacuum-cleaner salesmen and magazine peddlers were common irritants.

The ordinance does not apply to teenagers or to religious, political or nonprofit groups. Anyone trying to make money by knocking on doors must acquire a permit, valid through a calendar year.
There are 18 approved permits in Lower Merion, said Mike McGrath, police superintendent.

"As far as profiling that's a bogus argument," said John Norris, police chief in Cheltenham Township, which has a similar ordinance. "It's all about public safety."

It helps protect people from criminals who pose as solicitors to case out burglary targets.
Legal experts agree the law serves a purpose.

"You also have to realize there is a history of fraud and other criminal activity associated with door to door salesmen," said Mary Catherine Roper, senior attorney with the Pennsylvania ACLU.
Police noted anti-solicitation ordinances are popular with the public.

Several lawyers, though, believed Lower Merion police may have stretched the ordinance beyond its intent. Jeff Garton, who served as town solicitor in several Bucks County municipalities, said such ordinances aren't typically designed to apply to services like snow shoveling.

Mark Portella, a Haddon Heights, NJ, attorney who represents clients accused of violating municipal law, said it was unfair to conclude police were profiling, but asked why the men were approached even though cops had received no complaints.

"It causes me some concern," he said. "They're just canvassing the neighborhood and they're going to ask them a question?"

The witness, Deborah Saldana, said police questioned the shovelers as they shoveled. Police say officers witnessed them soliciting. A picture posted by Saldana showed the two shovelers sitting in the snow while talking to police, but a township spokesman said the interaction was cordial.

Police do not need a justification to engage in a conversation with people. McGrath noted the shovelers were not detained and were free to refuse to talk with officers." [Source]

Did I mention that the bell I would like to sell you has some great historical value?

It recommends several policy changes to phase out forms of bioenergy that use crops or that otherwise make dedicated use of land.

Most calculations claiming that bioenergy reduces greenhouse gas emissions do not include the carbon dioxide released when biomass (e.g., from maize) is burned.

Field, FN can be so depressing sometimes. Yet, it is true that bm, trying to make a dime still are harassed. Don't have a job bm are called lazy and are harassed.

For Blacks, it's damn if you do and damn if you don't. Of course when the cops are in the wrong, some commenter justifies the wrong with: "Once again, any unfairly hassled young bm only has the behavior of his peers to blame."

These bm were shoveling snow to try to make a living. Yet, comes the racist viewpoint: "Get your house in order, and this kind of problem will go away."

Fortunately, the KKK is close to extinction. People get tired of hating.

Brother Field, after centuries of being discriminated against and lynched and shot to death, shouldn't we as a nation just admit that Blacks are considered less than everybody else?

I mean, that would relieve everyone of pretending Blacks are equal citizens when they are not.

Also, it would take the pressure off the police. They could openly do whatever they felt like doing to Blacks.

Just think: no more hiding, no more lying, no more justifying, no more explaining....life would be good for cops and Whites.

Environmentalists have been griping about this problem forever. Biofuels are a great thing, but not if you're going to make them out of food crops. This is what happens when you let the people with loads of money (in this case the agriculture lobby) make policy by cashing in on "green" technology that isn't really green.

Don't allow rich people to buy off the government and you won't end up with dumb policies.

Swanky suburbs do tend to frown on door-to-door soliciting. Having grown up in such a place, I can tell you this is no joke. You have to file the proper paperwork before you go knocking on people's doors. (Unless you actually live there, like a neighbor's kid selling girl scout cookies. Then no one will hassle you.)

I'll concede it's probably more likely that the po-po will come if the solicitors are black.

But is that because the town is flat-out hostile to black people? Or is it just because they are more likely to be quickly identified as solicitors because they are visibly "not from around these parts"? Either reason could apply.

Dear Lt. Commander Johnson

The idiocy of your responses in yesterday's thread indicate that I have over-estimated your intelligence, for which I apologise.

Let me explain my point in simpler terms so that someone of your limited intellect might understand.

1. Yes, there are genomic differences between people who trace their ancestry predominantly from one part of the world, to people predominantly from another. That’s why (for instance) people from a predominantly European background tend to be melanin-challenged.

2. But as Lewontin (Sp?) pointed out in the early ‘70’s, the difference in the genomes of people within a social group (i.e. the differences in the 0.1% of DNA that can be different) can differ by anything up to 8%. Whereas the differences across these differing groups is generally around 6%. (You can look up the exact figures if you like it’s a well known study - I can’t be arsed). So in other words the genetic differences within the group of people who we choose to call white, are often greater than those between the groups that we choose to call black and those we choose to call white.

3. So categorizing or differentiating human beings into racial groups has no scientific meaning. Now we as a society tend to categorise people into what we call races (Black, White, Brown, Yellow etc.) because it’s a kind of convenient shorthand, there’s no scientific logic to it at all.

4. Here’s the complicated bit Lt. These genomic differences between what we choose to call “races” are a tiny fraction of a tiny fraction, and they are only significant when those differences are allotted a social importance. That’s what we mean when we say race is a social construct.

5. So because race has no scientific basis, that does not make “race” irrelevant, or racism impossible. Racism developed in the 14th and 15th centuries as a retroactive justification for the economic imperative of slavery. Up till that time slaves were basically people who had lost wars. Now a new justification was needed for slavery, and racism fitted the bill.

6. In Greek and Roman times for instance, there was no systemic racism at all, because society had seen no need to find genomic differences socially relevant, so it had not yet attached any social relevance to genomic differences. You should read ‘Blacks in Antiquity’ by Prof. Frank M Snowden. Very good book on the subject.

-----

Lewontin has argued that the distribution of genetic variation in humans (more within-population variation than between-population variation) means that populations can’t really be very different. Except for skin color ( just a few alleles), height (Pygmies exist and really are short), brain volume, etc etc.

The argument is crap: you need to look at allele frequencies weighted by their phenotypic effects. One funny allele like EDAR370a contributes an infinitesimal amount to interpopulation genetic variation, but it sure makes a difference. Mild differences in the frequency of a few hundred alleles can cause big differences in highly polygenic traits.

If Lewontin's argument is valid, it should apply to any genetically determined trait. Thus the variation in skin color within a population should be larger than the skin color differences between populations – except that it’s not. The difference in skin color between Europeans and Pygmies is large, so large that there is no overlap at all. No European is as dark as the lightest Pygmy (discounting rare cases of albinism).

So, is skin color an exception? Maybe Lewontin’s argument works on highly polygenic traits like height, that are influenced by many alleles of small effect. But no! Pygmies are notoriously short, while Bantus are about the same height as Europeans. We know that in a mixed population (part-Pygmy and part-Bantu) height goes up with the percentage of Bantu ancestry. So, there is a big, non-environmental difference in height (several standard deviations), even though height (itself highly heritable) is influenced by many genes of small effect.

So Lewontin’s argument does not work. You can’t predict group differences in trait values from the distribution of genetic variation – except in the limiting case where all of the variation is within-group, which means that the two populations are genetically identical.

Selection generates correlated genetic differences. Selection for increased height causes changes in the frequency of many alleles, in principle at all loci that influence height, although that is still a small subset of the genome. What matter is the difference in that subset: the overall distribution of genetic variation tells you nothing. Moreover, imagine that in the ancestral population, there were two alleles for each of those loci – a short allele with a frequency of 0.7 and a tall allele with a frequency of 0.3. Suppose that after selection for height, the frequency of each short allele was 0.3 and the frequency of the tall allele was 0.7. This could significantly increase height. In that subset of the genome, about 85% of the variation between those two population is within-group while 15% is between-group.

Anonymous said...

Lewontin started it, but responsibility is infinitely divisible, so that’s no excuse. Later practitioners are just as guilty.

He tried to argue away the possibility of phenotypic differences between different human populations using the magic of genetic statistics. Looking at overall genetic variation in humans (why?) most is within-group, rather than between groups. That’s true of dog breeds, as well, which is why they’re all really the same, even though they may seem to vary wildly in size, appearance, lifespan, and behavior.

Which is why Pygmies aren’t really short: they’re faking it.

Height is highly polygenic, almost as much so as IQ. Pygmies are about six standard deviations shorter than Europeans or Bantus: what magic principle says that you couldn’t see comparably large differences in IQ? There is none. Although the evidence we suggests that average population IQ doesn’t vary quite that much – probably ranges over something like 3 std, from low to high.

How can one enforce race-based affirmative action and racial quotas if one believes there is no such thing as race?

Beyond that, if race does not exist, how can anyone be racist? How would a poor racist figure out who he needs to discriminate against?

So, it's the definition of the word "race" that is at issue? If you divorce the meaning from the word, I guess the word is meaningless.

What shall call these differences between black and white people then?

Science is based on observation. How can something that can be observed not exist? Because we can all see these differences.

Your position makes absolutely no sense.

Especially since an analysis of a person's DNA can conclusively determine their race.

Denying the existence of an observable classification is ideology, not science. Leftism is at war with reality.

The "issue" here is that you, and other ideologues, deny that these genomic differences exist.

But they do exist, and this is scientifically provable.

So your position is demonstrably false, as "race" (or whatever you want to call it) absolutely does have a basis in science.

Whether or not these differences have any importance is a separate issue. But your denial of the reality of race as an observable classification reveals a deep intellectual dishonesty.
