PERSONAL BEAUTY AND RACE: Thanks to the Food of Vietnam site for excerpting my article “Beauty, Art, and Race” for their “Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder” series on the Westernization of standards of personal beauty in Asia. As they state, huge numbers of Asian men and women undergo painful and risky procedures every year to make their eyes, skin, and even bone structure look more like those of Europeans (click on image above). This goes against Nature and is fundamentally unhealthy, just as unhealthy as the adoption of “Ghetto” styles and standards by young Whites. In both cases, media-driven “pop culture” is the primary cause.
TODAY I’VE BEEN READING a book entitled Personal Beauty and Racial Betterment. The book is very rare today. It was published in 1920, during that hopeful time when a strong and mostly-healthy America was awakening to the scientific truths about race and the infinite possibilities of racial progress. Knight Dunlap, the author, was a professor of experimental psychology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and a substantial portion of his book was delivered by him as a lecture at Randolph-Macon College, just down the road from me in Lynchburg, Virginia. Despite some faults, the book is insightful and inspiring.
