Premise 1: All genes seek reproduction.
Premise 2: Our emotions are an expression of our genes.
Lemma 1, based on premise 1 and premise 2: Our emotions facilitate reproduction of genetic data.
Premise 3: Humans share many genes.
Contention 1, based on Premise 3 and Lemma 1: Genes in person A can reproduce by helping the reproduction of person B (as long as the damage to the reproductive success to person A is low enough).
Premise 4: The more similar the appearance of person A is to person B, the more similar are their genes.
Contention 2, based on Premise 4 and Contention 1: Humans will tend to be more emphatic toward people similar to themselves.
Premise 5: The average reproductive success for members of a group is greater than that of humans without a group (e.g. for population of 100 people, 50 collaborating as a group will reproduce more than the 50 non-collaborating).
Contention 3, based on Lemma 1 and Premise 5: Humans have an emotional tendency to desire to belong in a group.
Contention 4, based on Contention 3 and Contention 2: Humans will prefer to desire to belong in a group with genetically similar humans over a group genetically different humans (assuming groups of similar strength).
Corollary 1 to Contention 4: Humans are naturally racist, i.e. more emphatic to genetically similar humans and prefer to belong to a genetically similar group.
Corollary 2 to Contention 4: Since the family is the most basic group, preferring to take care of your biological child over other children is the most basic form of racism.
Corollary 3 to Contention 4: The more homogeneous a group (such as a state) is, the more stable it will be.
Corollary 4 to Contention 4: In order to increase a person’s empathy to another group show how similar they are to that person. In order to reduce a person’s empathy to another group show how different they are to that person.
Comments: While humans will tend to be more emphatic to genetically similar humans, other races are genetically similar too. A person of your race has 99% (maybe) similarity and a person of another race has 96% (maybe) similarity. Hence, in the absence of group conflict, there will be natural empathy to people of other races, just a little less. In any case, unless a person poses a danger to your genetic reproduction, hurting another human is always genetically like hurting yourself, since all humans share many genes. Accepting the fact that racism has biological reasons doesn’t mean you should be a nazi (this requires seeing other races as very different and as a huge threat…)
In addition, while racism is natural, it is not necessarily beneficial, even from the biological amoral perspective of the red-pill, since many groups today are not racially homogeneous. For example, the U.S. is a group and if the U.S. would have a white-black war the entire U.S. group would suffer. Thus, from the U.S. group perspective racism will have negative repercussions on the U.S. (For example, if white and black people in the U.S. would start kill each other, the U.S. group would be divided to sub-groups and be weaker. A weaker U.S. group would not be able to do stuff like effectively killing brown people.)
