Wikipedia Scientific Hoax Alert: In Article on the U.S. Census, the Encyclopedia That Any Leftwing Fraud Can Edit Promotes “Race Does Not Exist” Myth

[Previously, see: “Wikipedia on Race: ‘World’s biggest encyclopedia’ serves up propaganda.”]

The following passage comes from the entry in Wikipedia, or as I call it, The Pretend Encyclopedia, on “Race and ethnicity in the United States Census.”

==Relation between ethnicity and race in census results==

The Census Bureau warns that data on race in United States Census 2000|2000 Census are not directly comparable to those collected in previous censuses. Many US residents consider race and ethnicity to be the same concept. American Anthropological Association. " A Brief History of the OMB Directive 15." 1997. May 18, 2007.

[N.S. How many is “many”? WP/TPC’s own guidelines prohibit such squishy language, but in practice, the rules never apply to lefties. If there is confusion about the simple distinction between “ethnicity” and “race,” the confusion owes much to generations of mischief by organized, Marxist anthropology professors and their comrades in other departments and outside of academia, which the editor who inserted the approving reference to the AAA somehow failed to note.]

In the United States Census 2000, respondents were tallied in each of the race groups they reported. Consequently, the total of each racial category exceeds the total population because some people reported more than one race.

According to James P. Allen and Eugene Turner from California State University, Northridge, by some calculations in the 2000 Census the largest part white bi-racial population is white/Native American and Alaskan Native, at 7,015,017, followed by white/black at 737,492, then white/Asian at 727,197, and finally white/Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander at 125,628.

The Census Bureau implemented a Census Quality Survey, gathering data from approximately 50,000 households in order to assess the reporting of race and Hispanic origin in the United States Census 2000 with the purpose [sic] creating a way to make comparisons between the United States Census 2000 with previous Census racial data.

In September 1997, during the process of revision of racial categories previously declared by OMB directive no. 15, the American Anthropological Association (AAA) recommended that OMB combine the "race" and "ethnicity" categories into one question to appear as "race/ethnicity" for the United States Census, 2000.

The Interagency Committee agrees, stating that "race" and "ethnicity" were not sufficiently defined and "that many respondents conceptualize 'race' and 'ethnicity' as one in the same {{sic}} [N.S. “{{sic}}” was in the Wikipedia text] underscor[ing] the need to consolidate these terms into one category, using a term that is more meaningful to the American people." [Read: “More meaningful to” Marxists and others waging race war on white Americans.]

The AAA also stated,

"The American Anthropological Association recommends the elimination of the term "race" [sic] from OMB Directive 15 during the planning for the 2010 Census. During the past 50 years, "race" has been scientifically proven to not be a real, natural phenomenon. More specific, social categories such as "ethnicity" [sic] or "ethnic group" [sic] are more salient for scientific purposes and have fewer of the negative, racist connotations for which the concept of race was developed."

"Yet the concept of race has become thoroughly—and perniciously—woven into the cultural and political fabric of the United States. [The concept of race is older than the United States.] It has become an essential element of both individual identity and government policy. Because so much harm has been based on "racial" [sic] distinctions over the years, correctives for such harm must also acknowledge the impact of "racial" [sic] consciousness among the U.S. populace, regardless of the fact that "race" [sic] has no scientific justification in human biology. Eventually, however, these classifications must be transcended and replaced by more non-racist and accurate ways of representing the diversity of the U.S. population." [N.S.: My use of “sic” in the previous two paragraphs is due to Wikipedia’s improper use of double quotes both to open and close quoted paragraphs, and for words within the paragraphs, which should receive single quotation marks.]

The recommendations of the AAA were not adopted by the Census Bureau for the United States Census 2000 or the United States Census 2010.

Race has never been “scientifically proven to not be a real, natural phenomenon.” Apparently, professors of anthropology understand under “scientifically proven,” endlessly repeating what they know to be a lie, and destroying the career of anyone who refuses to play along.

The myth that the races are identical in their abilities was spread by Franz Boas (1858-1942), a German Jewish immigrant, whose true faith was socialism. The reason Boas invented the myth was purely political, and anti-scientific. As Zygmund Dobbs showed in The Great Deceit: Social Pseudo-Sciences (1964), Boas was a fanatical socialist who had no training in anthropology, as opposed to physics and geography, and who undertook a deliberate political campaign to hijack anthropology, and turn it into a propagandistic tool of stealthy, organized socialism. Boas was hugely successful.

He and his comrades took over one anthropology department after another.

The anti-scientific origins of the ultimate “race does not exist” hoax were in Boas’ plan to impose socialism on America. He knew, as everyone did, that there were different races, which were distinguished by their respective inherited characteristics. However, the facts were inconvenient to Boas’ goal of imposing an ideology and state form that asserted that all men were the same and had identical abilities.

As he wrote, early on,

The anthropologist recognizes that the Negro and the white represent the two most divergent types of mankind,


It is true that the average size of the Negro brain is slightly smaller than the average size of the brain of the white race.
[Zygmund Dobbs, The Great Deceit: Social Pseudo-Sciences, 175.]

Boas and his devotees such as Ruth Benedict and Margaret Mead routed the empirical, scientific study of physical racial differences, and replaced it with “cultural environment theory”: All nurture, no nature. He also committed scientific fraud, in writing a “study” falsely claiming that the skulls of immigrants’ children grew larger, due to the environment in America.

Just as college departments of anthropology were reduced to socialist fronts providing propagandistic pseudo-science by Boas and his devotees (e.g., Margaret Mead and Coming of Age in Samoa, Ruth Benedict and Patterns of Culture, Boas’ works, etc.), Boas also helped socialist fronts outside of academia.

He was long involved with one such non-academic front, the NAACP. He sought to use this radical organization, in order to promote race mixing, blend the two races into one, and thereby eliminate the white and black races (in America, at any rate). To this end, he also spread lies touting great black African advances in antiquity.

As Dobbs wrote,

Boas busied himself with giving a professorial tone to the NAACP movement. The nation began to be bombarded by a barrage of so-called scientific opinion on the racial question. The major theme projected was that there are no fundamental differences among races. There was constant repetition that all mankind was cast from the same mold. Only some mysterious compound called the culture complex was said to create differences. For example, Boas would team up with Mary White Ovington in a book which emphasized that the only major differences between the white and Negro races are those of cultural environment. A whole bevy of transitory socialist fronts were created….

In the course of a few decades the well-organized Boas leftist anthropological phalanx had managed to cripple physical anthropology as a scientific discipline. This was done by degrees. The early works of Boas began with a mixture of the cultural approach with anthropometrical and biological data about the different races. Little by little, the physical aspects of anthropology were pushed into the background through ridicule [sound familiar?] and politically inspired charges. By the time Hitler rose to power, the socialists throughout the world, and the Boas group particularly, began to apply epithets of “racism” and “genocide” to those who endeavored to carry on scientific studies of the various races and sub-races of humankind. They were greatly helped by Hitler’s use of the racial theme to excuse his inhumanities.

The Nazi pre-occupation with the theory of Aryan “superiority” to justify their massacres of millions of innocent civilians was cited in literature, speeches, university lectures and newspapers, as the reason for damning all physical investigations into racial differences. [See the Left’s ongoing war on the Pioneer Fund and all whose research it has funded, including some of the world’s foremost scholars of intelligence, e.g., Richard Lynn, J. Philippe Rushton, and Linda Gottfredson.] By imperceptible degrees the Boas leftist school, which was made up of both socialist and communist partisans, began to create the impression that the Aryan “superiority” theory was a Fascistic abomination and invention.

[Dobbs, 175f.]

Dobbs the shows that it was the Left, above all Marx’ collaborator, friend, and benefactor, Friedrich Engels, that had embraced and promoted the Aryan myth generations before Hitler did.

Boas’ fraudulent assertion that the races were equal in abilities was designed to become self-fulfilling through socialist agitation and social policy. Today’s phony “anthropologists” and other leftist pseudo-scholars (e.g., the late Stephen Jay Gould) are consciously continuing Boas’ work, and have extended his fraudulent claim that the races are identical in abilities to the even more obviously fraudulent claim that there are no different races, and that race exists merely as a “social construct.” And yet, they demand in all areas of human activity that one non-existent race be privileged, and other non-existent races be harmed.

The leftists who control WP/TPC are likewise continuing such pernicious propaganda, with the goal of wiping out the white race. Note that they do not even feign impartiality by at least citing dissenting, more scientific voices, let alone permitting anyone to expose Boas’ deceit, which they covered up.

Wikipedia: The Pearcy Massacre Still Never Happened (Expanded Version)

By Nicholas Stix
February 25, 2011

As few as one-tenth of one percent of the people in this country may have heard of the Pearcy Massacre, and though more people have heard of the Knoxville Horror, that is no thanks to the leftwing censors at Wikipedia or, as I call it, The Pretend Encyclopedia. The Pretend Encyclopedia, a handy source for the hottest new hoaxes presented as facts, is dominated by censor/propagandists who are allergic to the truth. Especially certain truths.

On Wednesday night, VDARE editor-publisher Peter Brimelow published my second investigative report on the racist atrocity in Arkansas I have dubbed the Pearcy Massacre: “‘Don’t Raise Your Voice at Me!’ [Click!] ‘Read a Law Book!’ [Click!]—A Pearcy Massacre Update.”

The quotes in the title were responses I got earlier this month from some people in the Garland County, Arkansas, criminal justice establishment, when I asked for any information on the case. But as readers will learn, I did eventually find sources willing to answer at least some of my questions.

On November 12, 2009, 80-year-old Edward Earl Gentry Sr.; his 56-year-old son, Edward “Eddie” Gentry Jr.; Eddie’s 52-year-old wife, Pam; Eddie and Pam’s 24-year-old son, Jeremy; and Jeremy’s 19-year-old girlfriend, Kristen Warneke, were all robbed and murdered, execution-style, and all but Edward Earl Gentry Sr. were burned beyond recognition, and thus could only be identified via dental records.

The leftwing censors at Wikipedia, or as I call it, The Pretend Encylopedia, either ignored or suppressed all reference to my first report, “Never Heard of the Pearcy Massacre? One Guess Why Not!” (There are censors at The Pretend Encylopedia who delete almost all references to my work, have sent a biographical entry someone wrote about me down the memory hole, and have threatened editors with being banned, merely for citing my work.)

The reason Wikipedia, like the national MSM, has ignored the case is because the victims were all white, and the suspects were all black.

The Pretend Encylopedia’s censors constantly delete references to race in entries on black racial atrocities committed against whites, and remove pictures of the blacks who committed them, coming up with phony claims such as that the mug shots cannot be used, because they aren’t in the public domain. If a mug shot taken by a police photographer isn’t in the public domain, nothing is!

They have used such fraudulent rationalizations to censor photographs of the black racists who kidnapped, beat, tortured, gang-raped and murdered Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom in the January, 2007 crime I dubbed the Knoxville Horror, which I have been covering for three weeks shy of four years, while using pictures of the victims which are not in the public domain. Thus, they are violating their own rules, coming and going. But that’s the Wikipedia way: At “the encyclopedia anyone can edit,” Wikithugs snow editors they hate with a blizzard of “rules,” all of which the thugs violate with impunity.

And every time an editor linked to one of my articles, the Wikicensors (e.g., “FloNight”) killed the link and deleted the reference, even going to the extreme of blocking all access to the entry for days on end, while they carried out their nefarious handiwork.

The Wikicensor who, in June 2007, was the most aggressive in withholding the truth from readers, a Kentucky nurse named Sydney Poore, who censors under the handle “FloNight,” gave the most inadvertently comical rationalization for censoring the victims’ picture:

“Remove image as only used to decorate article not critical to content discussed so not valid fair use claim.”

“Only used to decorate article” about two young folks who were kidnapped, beaten, gang-raped, sexually tortured and murdered?

Far from limiting speculation and rumors about the case, which was yet another of Poore/FloNight’s tortured rationalizations, she and her fellow Wikicensors helped fuel the fire.

In the first months after murders, the Web was afire with rumors that the victims had been sexually mutilated: That the killers had lopped off the penis of the living Christopher Newsom, and at least one of the breasts of the living Channon Christian. In my first investigative report on the case—the first investigative report anyone wrote on it—for American Renaissance on May 14, 2007, “The Knoxville Horror: The Crime and the Cover-Up,” I had succeeded at tracing those rumors back to their source: New Jersey-based, white supremacist/neo-Nazi Internet radio host, Hal Turner, who had begun spreading the hoax on or about February 21, 2007, i.e., 44 days after the victims’ bodies had been found.

A staffer at the CNN show, Paula Zahn Now, was so impressed with my research that she used it without attribution. In a May 29, 2007 episode devoted to the Knoxville case, the show displayed a screen-capture shot of my first American Renaissance report, but without mentioning me by name. The only part of the broadcast that seemed “new” to the uninitiated was in its repeating, without attribution, my spade work in hunting down Turner’s hoax. Zahn’s people acted as if they had done the investigative work.

CNN “reporter” Rusty Dornin even plagiarized an error I had made in my May 14 article, in identifying Turner as living “in New York.” He lived in New Jersey at the time. I corrected that error in a revised, expanded version of the article that American Renaissance published in its July, 2007 issue.

See my report, “White Supremacy and Plagiarism at CNN,” in which I asked, If American Renaissance has a “white supremacist agenda[s],” what does that make a reporter who plagiarizes American Renaissance?

One month after the show stole my work, it was cancelled, anyway.

(On December 21, 2010, Hal Turner was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for threatening violence against two Connecticut state legislators and three Chicago-based federal judges, respectively. He insisted that he had been part of a COINTELPRO-like program, in which he was a paid informer and agent provocateur, whose job it was to draw out violent white supremacist/neo-Nazi/whatevers, and had made the threats at the behest of his employer, the FBI.

According to the Associated Press, “At his trials the government confirmed that Turner did work for and with federal agencies, but that he went too far with his hate-filled remarks.” But since Turner was working the wrong side of the street, politically, the MSM has almost completely ignored the story.)

To return to Wikipedia, if Sydney Poore/FloNight had honestly wanted to dampen speculation, as she claimed, she would have left the references to my investigative work in the entry, and millions of readers who believed that Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom had been sexually mutilated, and were unaware of my work, would have learned the truth. Instead, Poore/FloNight’s political hatred for me aided and abetted the hoaxers, because no one learned from The Pretend Encyclopedia entry that the sexual mutilation story was a hoax. Millions of people still believe the hoax.

Over four years after the crimes, every now and then someone will still try and sneak the truth past the Wikicensors at the Knoxville Horror entry, but it never lasts. For instance, as recently as February 3, an anonymous editor added the essential adjective, “African American” to the entry’s second sentence, so that it read,

“They were both raped, tortured and murdered by three African American males and one female after being kidnapped early on the morning of January 7, 2007.”

The anonymous editor was not responsible for the now inaccurate time of the kidnapping, as it was already in the sentence. Knoxville authorities came to the conclusion over one year ago that the victims had been kidnapped in the evening of January 6, 2007, and that a call Channon Christian made home after midnight was after the gang had already kidnapped her and Christopher Newsom, and under their direction.

Well, the truth lasted exactly 70 minutes, before Wikicensor “Dougweller” removed it, giving the lie, “doesn't belong in lead, this was not a racial murder.”

The Wikicensors have done the same thing regarding the entries for the Wichita Massacre, and other black-on-white atrocities, and have likewise censored photographs and entire entries devoted to Crystal Gail Mangum, the racist black Duke Rape Hoaxer, but had no qualms about displaying photographs of Mangum’s three white victims for over one year.

After my second VDARE report on the Pearcy Massacre, I again checked The Pretend Encylopedia, to see if the censors had finally permitted someone to take note of the victims.

No such luck.

I checked under the names of all five of the victims, under “Pearcy, Arkansas,” under the name of the late murderer “Marvin Lamar Stringer,” and under the names of defendants “Jeremy Pickney” and “Samuel Lee Conway,” but came up with nothing. I guess the Pearcy Massacre is just a figment of my imagination.

To get a better feel for the dimensions of The Pretend Encylopedia’s deceptions and outright fraud regarding race, I recommend my 2008 American Renaissance exposé, “Wikipedia on Race: ‘World’s biggest encylopedia’ serves up propaganda.”

But it’s not just race. The Pretend Encylopedia is a veritable hoax machine.

Googling for this article under Wikipedia” and “hoax” turned up 237,000 hits. Writers compete with lists of the most egregious Wikipedia hoaxes, which occur so frequently that a book recording them through 2010 would of necessity fill several thick volumes.

Pretend Encylopedia co-founder Jimmy “Jimbo” Wales, who has turned the Web site into a personality cult, and source for reportedly $75,000 a pop speaking fees (color me green!), recently managed to raise $16 million in record time for the site. If consumer fraud laws had any bite, he’d be in jail for claiming to be soliciting funds for an encyclopedia.

P.S. As of 11:49 a.m., on October 27, 2011, there is still no Wikipedia entry for the Pearcy Massacre.
