Charles Darwin's wife used to call him "my own dear Nigger"

edited January 2013 in For The Grown & Sexy
For a more personal peek into Darwin's life there is a letter from his wife Emma on her concerns about Darwin's dwindling faith (Emma was much more religious than him). She wrote:
May not the habit in scientific pursuits of believing nothing till it is proved, influence your mind too much in other things which cannot be proved in the same way, & which if true are likely to be above our comprehension.
Later in the same letter she refers to Darwin as "my own dear Nigger". This is a strange term of affection to modern ears, but was probably an ironic reference to him being her "slave" - a phrase she uses in other letters. Darwin was a staunch abolitionist and wrote in several places that he abhorred slavery.

    Darwin was an abolitionist? Wasn't he a fan of social engineering and eugenics? That feels contradictory to me. You believe some people are genetically superior to others and yet, you don't believe they should be slaves...instead they should never even be born.

    where would you get the idea that darwin was a fan of eugenics? that's like saying euclid was a fan of skyscrapers.

    pretty much all darwin did was recognize and name the process of natural selection and adaptability as evolution. and get into some freaky nigger shit with his wife.

    Really? This is new to me, so why is it called "Darwinism"? I may need to research this topic a bit because I've never heard of any of this.

    Social darwinism takes darwins beliefs of evolution and survival of the fittest in genetics and applies it to social classes in our society, basically saying the strong and rich will prosper and the poor and weak will die like a weak species. Darwin himself didn't agree with this

    .
    Ahhh I see. So he created a concept...then someone bastardized it? Sounds fairly typical.

    I'm surprised by it too. I didn't know Darwin was an abolitionist.

    And Darwin pretty much came up with the ideas of natural selection and survival of the fittest. You wouldn't think someone like that would have a problem with one group lording over a weaker group.

    Frederich Douglas who was an ambassador of sorts to the U.S referred to the President of haiti as a "Superior Being" and a man he admired

    He was in Haiti tryong to persuade them to give up a naval base on a small osland haiti owned.

    The President told them craccas and Frederick Douglas no.lol and that was that.

    I just want to show this inferior mindstate that american history is dealing to blacks and blacks are regurgitating is not the only history out there.

    Darwin was an INTP and we are idea people and concepts and research not about controlling people. We want truth noy lies and of course race is a lie and he didnt believe it.
