Race is an emic, not etic concept. In other words, it is in the minds of the beholders, nor an objective fact.
In anthropology, folkloristics, and the social and behavioral sciences, emic and etic refer to two kinds of field research done and viewpoints obtained: emic, from within the social group from the perspective of the subject) and etic, from outside (from the perspective of the observer.
„Die einzige Art und Weise den rassistischen Fimmel anzugreifen, der die Welt heutzutage mitreisst, ist seine angeblich wissenschaftliche Basis zu untergraben“.
Boas, qtd in Friedrich Pöhl, Oswald Spenglers Rassebegriff im Kontext seiner Zeit: Boas, Chamberlain, Lenz, Rosenberg, Sombart
The false piety of white #liberals who claim that they are not #racists — or, indeed, who mea culpa that they ARE racists — is matched by the epistemological arrogance of the #CRT #Woke, who insist that everyone else is. And that they are not.
