einstein was right. chinese do squat when they eat or smoke...

ignorant people should learn a bit about what they want to write about before they write:

chinese do squat when eating or smoking, ceylonese do live in filth, and an honest appraisal of people should be shocking, and more importantly, should provoke change.

honest observation of characteristic habits of cultures is not a negative thing. it is constructive. what this author calls "racism" is just revulsion at maladaptive and repulsive behaviours that some cultures see as normal.

it's just like the pedophile muslims of the stan countries. their pedo sex tradition will not end until they are either shamed out of claiming that islam supports it or they are erradicated.

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/...is-racism.html

Newly translated into English, Albert Einstein's private travel diaries from the 1920s reveal that he was racist in his early life, especially towards Chinese people.

The journals, published as "The Travel Diaries of Albert Einstein" by Princeton University Press, reveal that Einstein, perhaps the most famous scientist of all time and known for his theory of general relativity and the equation e=mc2, was extraordinarily biased towards certain populations. This is a stark contrast to his stance later in life when he said that racism was a "disease of white people."

The diaries were written between October 1922 and March 1923. In one entry Einstein wrote that the “Chinese don’t sit on benches while eating but squat like Europeans do when they relieve themselves out in the leafy woods. All this occurs quietly and demurely. Even the children are spiritless and look obtuse.”

Speaking about the “abundance of offspring” and the “fecundity” of the Chinese, he continued: “It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”
Einstein also derided the people of Ceylon, which is now known as Sri Lanka. In Ceylon, he wrote, the locals “live in great filth and considerable stench at ground level,” before adding they “do little, and need little. The simple economic cycle of life.”

Einstein also gave his thoughts on Japanese people, who he viewed in a more positive light, calling them "unostentatious, decent, altogether very appealing.” However, he also wrote the “intellectual needs of this nation seem to be weaker than their artistic ones – natural disposition?”

"Entries... contain passages that reveal Einstein's stereotyping of members of various nations and raise questions about his attitudes on race," a description of the book reads.

The journals were translated from the German and are described as "the first publication of Albert Einstein’s travel diary to the Far East and Middle East."

Speaking with The Guardian, the book's editor Ze'ev Rosenkranz said that Einstein's views were not intended for public consumption and provide a shock to those who read them.

“I think a lot of comments strike us as pretty unpleasant – what he says about the Chinese in particular," Rosenkranz told The Guardian. “They’re kind of in contrast to the public image of the great humanitarian icon. I think it’s quite a shock to read those and contrast them with his more public statements. They’re more off guard, he didn’t intend them for publication.”

Rosenkranz is also the assistant director of the Einstein Papers Project at the California Institute of Technology and has written several books about the life of Einstein.


The remarks in his journal are markedly different to the public image Einstein had in his later years.

In 1946, speaking at Lincoln University, the first degree-granting historically black university in the U.S., Einstein said that racism was a "disease of white people" and added “I do not intend to be quiet about it," according to a 2007 article in the Harvard Gazette.

Einstein was a founder of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and left it his literary estate and personal papers. He declined an invitation to serve as Israel's first president.

He died in 1955 at the age of 76.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Fox news has gone down hill.

Nothing racist in those Einstein comments except the LAST one where he says 'racism is a white man disease'.

His observations about other cultures aren't racist. Just the facts as he saw them.

The headline makes it sound like he was a hood wearing KKK member burning black churches.

I can tune in to Youtube and watch Haitians making cookies out of dirt, Africans making burgers out of midge flies, and peoples of the subcontinent lands crapping in the streets. I dont need Rosencranzbuttalefkowitczstein or whatever the fuk his name is at Princeton to tell me what is as plain to me as it was to one of the most brilliant and moral men to have lived.

Well I was in Beijing and one morning after drinking a bunch of Chinese liquor the night before needed to go number 2 real bad while out of the house. I went into a public toilet that the stench was unlike anything I experienced. I had to run out of the place before I puked and shat myself. Learned after that to find a Western hotel. They not going to stop a westerner from going in plus you actually have a toilet.

Einstein would have taken one look at India and then considered China shangra la

If that is all they got, and called him a racist for those comments, I'd be in for some serious shit, if I ever wrote down my take on most/all nations I've been too!

Watched a documentary of very recent vintage where India was installing public toilets to try and get the people away from "open air defecation". Was'nt working well at all. The peeps using the public camodes were soiling them bad...even shitting in the sinks., floors etc etc. The stench to the reporters and the filth were bad...real bad.
I know a fella that got ill on a business trip in china 6-7 years ago . The hospital in Beijing...the premier hospital mind you was filthy and he nearly croaked from the unclean conditions there.

From reading Einstein's take on his travels, it becomes quickly apparent he never entered a Thai bar on Saturday night!

Those places could either cure or give you cancer from the exposure to toxins present.

I am of Chinese descent. I don’t drink or smoke. I sit at a table or eat in my car on the way to work. Every Chinese person I know eats at a table. My mother yells at me if I eat on the sofa in front of the television. Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Who cares as long as you are an American. My wife is Asian, her kids have never been to Asia.

Einstein was referring to the inhabitants of China.

And don't worry about being painted with a broad brush, I'm part Norwegian and part Native American, with a hint of Irish form good measure. I don't eat rotten fish, I don't hunt bison, and I don't drink Guinness.

ETA, my father is of Norwegian/Irish descent. He shits in a toilet and eats at a table (both assume he's indoors), yet at almost 70 years old, still squats when he rests like he learned from the Vietnamese and Montagnards when he was in his 20s. If he's camping, etc, he eats and shits in that position, too.

It takes a lot of effort to accept a foreign species/culture into your midst.

Ask dogs what they think about cats when you introduce one to your home that the dog is well settled within.

They never really accept them but they do eventually tolerate them and you give them special attention for doing so.

With humans, it isn't any different.

We just don't get any special attention for doing so.

This makes us more aggressive and demonstrably unhappy.

Caucasian reparations for tolerating the forced cultural integration are in order.

Haven't we given enough to actually get something in return?

I'm going to demand and picket the NFL and demand parity with equal representation based upon racial percentages, skin color,,,,,,,, its only fair!!!!!!

All this one sided crap is setting back race relations by decades.

Equal is equal, in every damn thing!

Same for the ladies, they wan't equal, its in every damn thing, with being drafted and sent off to war, pregnant or not, with three small kids at home or not at the top of the list.

Either make the standard, or don;t apply and never pull the race card out of your pocket nor the gender crap, just meet the standards and full expectations or find something else to do.

A 90 pound anything is never going to pull my 240 pounds out of a burning house, nor hump 100 pounds of gear 20 miles, then fight a running gun battle for the next ten.

Just read, that obammy lowered the scores required for the air traffic controllers because they were all or nearly all white and now the IG has found a ton of fraud in that whole process with many people directing 747's through the skies that can't read or write or convicted felons, etc.

Was too scared to read the whole thing, but for some reason, been looking up a lot lately.

dude, i lived in china for 5 years. trust me, every chinese man i knew in luoyang smoked, and most women did it in private. and as for drinking, the baijou is foul smelling 100 proof white alcohol and part of every important family or business dinner. pijou is a bland beer. luoyonggong was my fovorite. pigouo is tush. that usually followed important business dinners.

you are chinese descent. you are not chinese. you are a "twinkie" or "banana". yellow on the outside, and white on the inside. in china they call people like you "ABC", which to people in the west is an acronym for "american born chinese". but in china that is "american between chinese".

i have nothing against chinese. i have good friends that are chinese, and even married one, but she became an american too quickly. indians i have no respect for and cannot tolerate, but chinese i can work with and actually admire, to some degree.

you are an American. you are not chinese.

When Einstein said "Racism is White affection" he gave other races the OK to try and catch up with us,,, some race's passed us like we were standing still.
He should'a just stuck to atomic bombs.

I ran in only to find squat toilets as we progressed through the country side so swiftly at 200kph. I squated so fast I narly made my pants down before I vindaloo and most hit the wall and then only to find had no toilet paper so thankfully had a backup.

I thought it meant Chinese people do jack squat when they eat or smoke. Everywhere I go I see people doing jack squat, standing around in front of some place smoking.

Was at CDG after an all night flight. You know how your stomach is wobbly after being on long plane ride right? Got in the shuttle bus and some stinky fug got next to me, and I thought I was going to puke on the spot. I started yelling at him to get the hell away from me. I was one rude ass American.

Went to a place where they make surgical facemasks over there. Again, damn if a woman didn't walk up to me that had BO like she hadn't bathed in a month.

Yepper, parfume, was created in France because their wimmen stink so bad!

Instead of a 500 bottle of parfume, they should spend 60 cents on a bar of soap and use it daily!!!!
