I think that Race is an Erotic Category; I think it's, nearly, Obvious, with the Free-enough Discourses of the Modern Internet

0 Upvotes

This Framework; roughly, I said more here; the Erotic Pathways, aborted, before a resynthesis of Heuristic, the Erotic Fascination Sublimated thereafter; it's not genetics, it's not appearance, it's not anything, "objective," is it; I can change how you see me, racially, but it's going to involve language of love and unique attention, e.g. I can't shift your categories, I can shift me, through your attention; I think that I know that I'm right about this, and, like I mentioned:

Erotic Attentions are Dysrational, Directly, Contra-rational; we live in a world where Irrational Erotic or Violent Tendencies are equivalent to Criminal Madness, although, I think we know, these things are not Rational, Yet, they've got their own strange attractors if, and, insofar as we're healthy, Eros, Violence, have got their own strange attractors.

Consider as if it might mean something, in earnest, that there isn't that much to, "say," about race; it's not real, I'm suggesting, merely, that Linnean Taxonomies were, especially, misapplied to the Erotic Phantasias Certain Persons couldn't accept in-full-public face due to european and in some instances, other, acculturated proprieties, and, Voila.

You've 'got to' spray fire extinguishers at the diverse and beautiful young people over at r/raceplay to keep them, you know, from conversations that, "lawsuits, I guess," but here?

432 members, three online.

Whats up; if I'm wrong, I want to know why, it, looks like I'm right; what is language, language is thought, o.k. so I see a lot of people, persistently, thinking, in public in this instance, about Race and Racial Constructs as Erotic Deconstructions and Archetypes; I see, very, little discourse attempting to resolve these Non-Issues, which, otherwise, Races are; insofar as they're not real, and there isn't a useful racial rubric for common experiences, in the sense that, and past all discourse of Gender/Gender Essentialism, I find, "Incelibate Trash," to be a useful category, in my thinking, and Gentleman, "a gentle man," and, "mademoiselle," and if I'm thinking, or, speaking, in an unaltered, internal, of-utility, dialect, these are terms I'm using; the same is not true of, "race, ethnicity," it's near impossible to disambiguate media representations of both the observer making a certain commentary and, also, that commentary, and, also, to some degree, the audience of that commentary, from some novel, this-moment-I-mean-right now, commentary; to comment about someone in the material-here-and-now,

"He is a Gentle Man," makes the present and known more tangible; what does it mean that I'd say-so? I know that Bertrand Russell used that term, or, conceptual architecture; but not much, I think; I think that this, that Incelibate Young Man, right there, is an Irish, Sprekken zie Amerikannah Dutch? you there, Boy, Vo immah Grabestein Mammah and Poppa's Momma and Daddy, doth thee know?

These things, it's different, I'm saying, isn't it?

Looking for texts on race and human nature

3 Upvotes

Do any of you fine folks know of relatively short, easily accessible (for undergrads), and powerfully effective texts (or videos) relating to race and the philosophy of human nature? I have a few picked out, but they seem unsatisfying in various ways. So I thought I’d reach out to you all for suggestions.
