Prejudice is correct (mostly)

Anti-Racists are prejudiced against prejudice.

Research on Stereotype accuracy shows that prejudice is frequently correct. It has also been shown that humans evolved to be good intuitive statisticians (see below 1 2)

A Blow Against Anti-White Science

Scientist demolishes a half century of bias.

Lee Jussim, Social Perception and Social Reality: Why Accuracy Dominates Bias and Self-Fulfilling Prophecy, Oxford University Press, 2014, 404 pp., $84.00.
This is a very important book. It is an extensive and painstaking refutation of a set of mistaken assumptions that have dominated social science research since the 1950s, and continue to bias the thinking of most professionals in the field. It is a book for specialists–exhaustive and meticulously documented–but it systematically dismantles the illusions that helped give rise to today’s reflexive suspicion of whites. The author, Lee Jussim, is chairman of the psychology department at Rutgers University, and has spent his entire professional life as a social psychologist. [A Blow Against Anti-White Science]
many of the ideas in the book are so outside the mainstream of “normal” social science
claims, that it is perhaps more obvious than usual that any errors, misinterpretations, misrepresentations, and the like are entirely my own. For example, this book spends 6 chapters
arguing that the effects of expectations are typically overstated and, rather than being powerful and pervasive, are weak, fragile, and fleeting. It spends 3 chapters arguing that there is far more evidence of accuracy than most social psychologists acknowledge. It spends 5 chapters arguing that stereotypes are typically quite accurate, typically used in a manner that is reasonable and more or less rational, and that it is social psychological perspectives emphasizing
stereotype inaccuracy that are exaggerated, unjustified, and irrationally resistant to change.
One can find vanishingly few psychologists of any stripes presenting such claims, so that one
can be assured that any errors in making or justifying them are entirely my own.

Political Correctness based on junk science

Stereotypes are (mostly) NOT wrong, do NOT cause the stereotyped behaviors like high crime and low school performance. Labels and names are NOT powerful and do NOT cause hardship.

 

Thus the entire basis of political correctness is moot. Even detractors to political correctness are unaware of Jussim's debunking work.

See this example of an attack on political correctness who still recognizes PC's basic tenet and values.

PC does NOT have even have the basic value the following author ascribes to it as follows

Democracy's Death

The irony, of course, is that so many people, have adopted a way of interpreting human rights and liberal values in a manner that often undermines them. Political correctness, as it developed through the 1980s and 1990s began with good intentions. Words, political policies, and action that were either intended or inadvertently constructed to offend people on account of their race, disabilities, sexuality and so forth, must be replaced by "correct" terms that would not give offence. Much good was done by that, and today there are expressions that one would never find in respectable publications or hear on public broadcasts. They have rightly been set to one side in all decent discourse.

No, not much good was done. The idea of self fulfilling prophecy has been debunked by Jussim. The words do NOT cause hardship. PC is corrupt, harmful and totally useless right from its inception and its base.

Politically correct speech codes were unnecessary in its beginnings, and very harmful in its further course. And the foundation of PC is the racism taboo, based on the idea that the consistent underachievement of certain ethnicities is CAUSED by words and thoughts of white racism.

Many practitioners of political correctness, however, have taken matters to the point where even perfectly rational, well argued, and intelligent speech or behaviour was condemned. This could be, and evidently is, done to inhibit debate – a new type of censorship made vivid by faculty and students in most Western universities in which speakers offering alternative viewpoints (such as pro-Israel academics) are banned from coming onto campus, while students frightened of being upset by a lecture that presents a different viewpoint create "safe spaces" that will not exist upon their graduation to soothe their feelings. This has become so destructive of the very purpose of the university, that in December 2017 Jo Johnson, the UK Higher Education Minister, told universities to stop the practice of "no-platforming" speakers. Inevitably, student leaders attacked him for saying so.
As anti-establishment groups shifted from support for the working classes and moved to an emphasis on solidarity with those termed by Frantz Fanon "the wretched of the earth", their compassion for suffering people in the Third World was all but eclipsed by a conviction that all today's evils stem from imperialism and colonialism. Up until the 1970s, this same conviction was expressed in support for communist states, regardless of how oppressive they might be. {Source: Democracy's Death]

			

 

 

Humans, even apes, are intutive statisticians

This is why the distorted press reporting is such a powerful manipulation. If almost all reporting is white police killing innocent Blacks, it appears that Black on White crime and Black on Black crime is not very relevant.

Previous studies have shown that man is only fairly efficient as an intuitive statistician.
