When prole whites are just as bad as NAMs

https://www.kktv.com/content/news/Youth-baseball-brawl-in-Colorado-police-need-help-identifying-someone-511486482.html

Massive brawl between parents at a 7-year-old Little League game after the 13-year-old umpire made a controversial call. Normally, you think NAMs when this happens, but it looks like the poorly behaved parents are prole whites.

      • The video is out, seems like exactly this mix, some whites and few hispanics. Fighting in kids league is a pretty common staple for the lower classes, or at least shouting some abuse. That’s why in Australia for example middle class parents might send their kids to play rugby union but not rugby league which is the code of rugby played by the lower classes. In Israel basketball is more of a middle class game while soccer has more lower classes players. I guess each country has their own cultural distinction which manifest in choice of sport.

  2. Middle class white people are exceedingly nice and polite. Go one step lower, to high proles, and a surliness creeps in that is born of resentment. Mid proles and lower are quite aggressive in their natural habitat.

    • From a perspective of educational attainment, high proles are individuals with college degrees from public schools.

      There is a correlation with proledom and schools that focus on vocational pursuits and festive behavior. One seems to attract the other.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

  3. Low IQ types, likely.

    But there’s also something about competitive team sports, I believe.

    I find sports boring so I don’t write from personal experience.

    Here in Canada the big sport is ice hockey. Football and baseball are popular too.

    Fans identify with their team to an extreme degree. When a final or semifinal game is played the cops patrol the city where they’re playing.

    There was a huge riot that broke out in Vancouver a few years back over (professional, need I add) hockey. I don’t even remember who won. Not only whites but Chinese participated. I think it was hockey. It might have been football.

    A long time ago (before mass migration) a big riot broke in Vancouver over football (I think). I was a teenager. I remember seeing pictures of fire trucks spraying water on them.

    Football and ice hockey are fairly violent sports. Even professional hockey players get to fighting with each other at times.

    I saw a photo once where a police car had driven right onto the rink. Maybe the fans were brawling.

    It must awaken the same part of the brain that handles true fighting, as in war.

    Baseball is a bit calmer. It’s not as violent a sport. But enough for this crowd.

    • There were big riots in Vancouver when the Canucks lost to the New York Rangers in the ’94 Stanley Cup. (The Rangers’ victory ended a 54-year drought.)

      Incidentally, the 25th anniversary of that memorable win was last Friday. It was the same week of the O.J. Simpson murders.

      • The 2011 riots have their own Wikipedia page. But I’m sure there were some in 1994 too.

        There’s a news story about some 2014. They don’t have have their own Wiki page. An accompanying photo shows a police car set on fire, though.

        The 2011 riots were epic and it’s worth quoting when you consider that there isn’t a big NAM population there. I seem to recall that Steve Sailer did a blog post about it: yes Chinese will riot too (lots of whites were rioting too).

        The 2011 Vancouver Stanley Cup riot was a public disturbance that occurred in the downtown core of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on Wednesday, June 15, 2011. The riot broke out immediately after the conclusion of the Boston Bruins’ win over the Vancouver Canucks in game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals, which won the Stanley Cup for Boston.

        At least 140 people were reported as injured during the incident, 1 critically;[1][4] at least 4 people were stabbed, 9 police officers were injured, and 101 people were arrested that night.[7][8] In July 2015, four years after the riot, police finished their investigation and recommended the final charges against two suspects, bringing the total to 887 charges laid against 301 people.[9]

      “ the Piggy Palace Good Times Society, with the Canadian government in 1996, claiming to “organize, co-ordinate, manage and operate special events, functions, dances, shows and exhibitions on behalf of service organizations, sports organizations and other worthy groups”. Its events included raves and wild parties featuring Vancouver sex workers and gatherings in a converted slaughterhouse on the farm. These events attracted as many as 2,000 people. Members of the Hell’s Angels were known to frequent the farm.”

      • They do in my part of Texas. So my daughter’s soccer team (mostly upper middle class white) was playing a mostly Mexican American team, and the other team was playing a very physical game, lots of pushing and shoving and pulling, and throwing bodies around, and they were dishing out a lot of punishment to our star player who’s a very skilled but petite little thing, and our coach (her father) was repeatedly complaining to the ref, an 18 or so y/o hispanic kid. And this big ass white guy, who I assume was one of the opposing players dads, approaches the coaches box, which is supposed to be sacrosanct, and starts harassing our coach with a “yall are doin it too!” angle, and I approach the dude and in an authoritative voice command him to “get out of the box, man!.” (Because you know you’re not supposed to do that, right? There are rules. Yeah…) Now distracted he approaches me, and I immediately regretted my reflex to protect our coach, Lol. I stand my ground, and the guy gets into my space and belly bumps me. Yes. Belly bumps me. This bald headed motorcycle gang looking white dude with abundant tattoos up and down his arms and neck, maybe 4 inches taller, 60 lbs heavier, and 20 years younger than me, belly bumps me. And then he says “what are you going to do about it?” So I replied “what are YOU going to do about it?” which was the only thing I could think of in the moment, while all the fight or flight signals are surging through my body. Then, fortunately, we were pulled apart by bystanders who are saying stuff like “it’s a game! There are kids here, guys!”. Came this close to being a Youtube video. My wife wasn’t present but I gained major street cred with her when the other moms told her about the incident. Impressed my daughter too who was on the field at the time and didn’t see it happen but she heard about it from her friends on the sideline, who exaggerated the story. Now I’m a legendary bad-ass soccer dad.

  5. Um, yeah. Lol at “alt-right” “white nationalists” who think that all white people are as well behaved as Phd students at Princeton.

    Anyone who knows the truth understands that an IQ 80 white person lives his personal life far more like an IQ 80 black or an IQ 80 hispanic.

    This is especially true for white people, who exhibit a very high standard deviation. Low IQ prole whites and high IQ SWPLs are basically two distinct races. The only important thing they share is skin color.

    Progressive liberals can’t admit that there are differences between races or genders. Meanwhile the “white nationalists” and the “MRA’s” can’t admit there are differences *within* each race or each gender.

      • I would guess once you control for IQ, about 70-80% of the racial differences in behavior disappear. Of course blacks would still be slightly more aggressive on average, East Asians more family-oriented, etc. But take a group of 80 IQ whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, whatever, and you’ll see more similarities than differences.

        Black iq adjusted behavior is much worse for some reason. Dont know how to quantify it but id imagine its something like black behavior at x iq is like everyone else behavior at iq equal to 85% of x.

      • “I would guess once you control for IQ, about 70-80% of the racial differences in behavior disappear.”

        You’re right. I read a paper some years ago which showed that when one controlled for income, parents’ education, etc (basically a proxy for IQ) that the difference in crime rates between whites and hispanics was negligible. In fact, when they controlled for those factors whites actually had a slightly higher crime rate than hispanics. The gap between whites and blacks decreased some but was still significant. I don’t remember the numbers though. And it’s been so long I don’t have the paper. I just remember reading it.

      • “Low IQ prole whites and high IQ SWPLs are basically two distinct races. The only important thing they share is skin color”

        If you control for ethnicity, White Americans from the various Northern European groups form the dominant SWPL population, and Southern Europeans like Italians form shamefully a very small minority. Jews are in the middle of this spectrum. SWPLdom is a mark of success, where it distances itself from the low brow, tribal behavior of proles.

        SWPL Jews are also a special breed, who transcend their ethnicity, their unique history and their distinctive behavioral modes.

        If you control for race and prole behavior, black americans would be on top of this list.

      • “But take a group of 80 IQ whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, whatever, and you’ll see more similarities than differences”.

        Leaving aside the fact that there simply isn’t a significant group of 80 IQ whites found anywhere (whereas I can readily find 80 IQ Blacks in any Black neighborhood), that’s a lot of conjecture given that I assume you don’t have a lot of experience with any of these 80 IQ groups.

        I work with them all day long. I have a good number of Blacks and Hispanics who are merely “cognitively disabled” without a further diagnoses. Which is merely code for low IQ. You don’t know what that looks like until you see and work with it.

        I don’t have a single White person like that. Each one has either a genetic or acquired (ie: cerebral palsy) disability

        Blacks and Hispanics have significantly higher androgen output than do whites, even in female individuals. That alone will significantly shape behavior, and perhaps more so at the 80 IQ level at which executive function will be all the more impaired.

      • “I wonder what the highest class sport is, by IQ, education, and income of its average participant?

        Is it equestrian”?

        I don’t know about IQ, but the two most prestigious sports for the sometimes (but not always) well educated upper class are riding and sailing. Because both imply the possession of excess capital as well as taste. They imply taste (and a sense of aristocratic history) because both horse riding and sailing are intimately connected with deep European history through the skills required of the noble/explorer/warrior classes. In contrast, tennis skills were not required of those classes until much later.

        Unless you are in a place like MA where, due to concentrated affluence on the coast, they even have yacht clubs for proles (with fishing tournaments for kids! etc.).

    • They are prole. However, reaction time is correlated with intelligence and you may be able to improve that time with concentrated practice over years in sports like baseball. I’ve played a lot of sports over the years, and I hold baseball to be the only sport that really improved reaction time. For example, to this day I can see something like a set of keys falling off of a table almost like it is in slow motion and I rarely don’t catch it. That’s from years of fielding balls that were coming at me very fast (often me throwing a rubber ball against a wall and catching it with a glove). Its a small skill but I enjoy having it. I believe that its improved my general cognition.

      In my long experience, and reaction practice aside, individual sports are much better for boys than team sports. I’ve played both to the hs varsity level. Individual sports give you a skill that you can take into adulthood, build better confidence, and give one more concentrated practice time (team sports are invariably an exercise in waiting), and are all around more rewarding if the child can put in the years of time of being terrible at it before they are passable (that process being from where the reward derives).

      I also think calling this a “brawl” is stretching the definition of the word a little. Technically, yes, because there were several people pushing, etc. But there was really only two or three guys fighting and it only lasted about 15 seconds. The rest were just kind of crowded around jostling each other from the commotion.

I see a couple of soccer mom types (one in a tennis outfit) and a kid who looks like he just came from a tennis match, who appear solidly middle or upper-middle class. I also see several men in tank tops (definitely not UMC), one guy appears not to have a shirt on at all, and a woman in a freaking tube top (an adult woman in a tube top driving through my neighborhood would get pulled over and asked what she was doing there. Regardless of her race). One of the spectators is wearing a sprint car team T-shirt. It starts with one of the moms wrestling with one of the tank top guys over a bat. Oddly, I don’t see any tattoos, though the video isn’t very clear. I’m going with a prole vs. non-prole brawl. The guy they’re looking for is on the non-prole side. Probably not good for him unless he’s a kid.

  13. People are really unclear on the concept of team sports for children.

    The purpose is to engage children in an activity so that parents can determine what their children’s talents are. The idea is the kids are having too much fun to notice the notes their parents are taking. This is why the upper classes have participation trophies, a lack of outright competitiveness, and a “make everyone play” mentality. There is a good reason for it.

    Remember, a child’s world is not a simulacrum of the adult world. Adult world ideas should never permeate the child’s world. Children need to be trained and talents discovered under simulation only, not realism.

    If, for example, you apply the “winning is the only thing” mentality to children, then, if you don’t win, is it worth playing? Why stick with, say, playing baseball if you are just riding a bench? But, if everyone who rides the bench or is marginal refuses to show up, then where would you get the play that would discover the next baseball great?

    In the real world, you don’t waste time doing things that you have no talent for, therefore, you don’t apply the method to children.

    The book had some great stories. My favorite is the following one.

    The author’s maternal grandparents used to fight like crazy in their younger days, before the author was born. The grandfather would often come home drunk, and one day the grandmother told him that she’d kill him if he did it again. A few days later the grandfather comes home drunk and passes out on the couch, so Grandma pours gasoline on him and throws on a lighted match. One of their daughters was right there and was able to save her father from burning up by throwing a blanket over him.

    • It’s definitely the worst of American white prole culture.

      But South Slavic people are also really bad. Serb/Croat/Bosniak dysfunction is the only European dysfunctiont that reaches African levels of stupidity and violence.

      • One thing really struck me about “Hillbilly Elegy.” These people still live in a clan-based, shame/honour culture.

        That disappeared from parts of southern England in the medieval era. It persisted for a quite some time in the Celtic fringes. It didn’t disappear from northern Scotland until the Highland Clearances, mostly 18th century. Breaking up the last of the clans was one motive of the Clearances.

        There’s a classic book explaining where in Great Britain various early migrants to North America went. I haven’t found time to read it. I wonder where those Appalachians came from. Or they did they revert back to clans later?

        Is that even possible?

        It has no personal connection for most people born in western Canada. The clans were long gone when my Highland grandparents arrived in BC around 1900 or so. No one here, even in northern hick towns (like the one in Alberta that Jordan Peterson grew up in) was clan based.

        I spent several years of my childhood in such a town in northern BC and it bore no resemblance to the description of Appalachia in that book.

        Is still being clan-based shame/honour the ultimate in prole-ness?

    • “one day the grandmother told him that she’d kill him if he did it again”.

      That’s not an example of “culture” That’s mental illness and a one-off-attempt at murder. It happens all of the time, but poverty can incubate it at a slightly greater rate. Appalachia does not have an exceptionally high murder rate. Its rare that any White community does.

      “hillbilly culture, which is probably the worst of while prole culture”.

      Urban White proles who allow themselves to be influenced by Black culture are the worst prole culture by a landslide. I’d trust a hillbilly until I had reason not to. I wouldn’t trust a wigger to-start. I notice the wigger culture (or at least some influence from it) can also exist in suburban and rural areas if Blacks are also there in great numbers. Which tends to be southern phenomenon.

  19. Have you changed your site layout. As of today, using the iPad, the right hand side of the blog is taking most up of the screen. The comment part is about a third of the screen. The text is thus barely readable and I can’t fix it. I managed to type this in but that’s it.

    • I did not change anything that I’m aware of.

      But YES, i see that it’s not working. Maybe it’s the Twitter widget…

      • There was a very large tweet on the right hand side.

        The screen seems to be OK now.

        It was weird: it initially showed the screen correctly sized. Then it start to shrink on the left side as I watched, ending up uselessly small.

      • I removed the twitter widget which is why it’s OK now. But now people don’t see my latest tweets, so that’s not so good either.

      • @Lion So no one else complained?

      • @Lion Why did it suddenly start now? I imagine you’ve had the tweet display for some time. I frequent other WordPress sites that have a tweet display. I don’t understand what has changed.

        I’d be surprised if I’m the only reader using an iPad.

  20. White proles fight and always have. Most of them grow up. Some don’t. I’m inherently nice and meek and yet had to grow up fighting. As late as high school I was taking punches even from strangers. Today, I’m still nice but can handle myself (hs wrestling also helped with that a great deal). Not that I ever need it. I do feel trauma from growing up in that environment. Looking back, almost all of the school yard consistent instigators had Italian blood.
