Was Einstein a Racist?

Fox News Title: Einstein’s diaries contain shocking details of his racism

There’s nothing shocking at all about what Einstein wrote in his diaries. Fox is exaggerating.

The man whose name is synonymous with genius was simply accurately describing what he saw during his travels. His observations about various peoples indicate a race realist, not a racist.

While he was critical to the Chinese, he praised the Japanese.

It would be great if Einstein were a racist, calling out “niggers,” Mexicans, and other low IQ populations for their stupidity and other negative characteristics.

Newly translated into English, Albert Einstein’s private travel diaries from the 1920s reveal that he was racist in his early life, especially towards Chinese people.

The journals, published as “The Travel Diaries of Albert Einstein” by Princeton University Press, reveal that Einstein, perhaps the most famous scientist of all time and known for his theory of general relativity and the equation e=mc2, was extraordinarily biased towards certain populations. This is a stark contrast to his stance later in life when he said that racism was a “disease of white people.”

The diaries were written between October 1922 and March 1923. In one entry Einstein wrote that the “Chinese don’t sit on benches while eating but squat like Europeans do when they relieve themselves out in the leafy woods. All this occurs quietly and demurely. Even the children are spiritless and look obtuse.”

Speaking about the “abundance of offspring” and the “fecundity” of the Chinese, he continued: “It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”

Einstein also derided the people of Ceylon, which is now known as Sri Lanka. In Ceylon, he wrote, the locals “live in great filth and considerable stench at ground level,” before adding they “do little, and need little. The simple economic cycle of life.”

Einstein also gave his thoughts on Japanese people, who he viewed in a more positive light, calling them “unostentatious, decent, altogether very appealing.” However, he also wrote the “intellectual needs of this nation seem to be weaker than their artistic ones – natural disposition?”

“Entries… contain passages that reveal Einstein’s stereotyping of members of various nations and raise questions about his attitudes on race,” a description of the book reads.

The journals were translated from the German and are described as “the first publication of Albert Einstein’s travel diary to the Far East and Middle East.”

Speaking with The Guardian, the book’s editor Ze’ev Rosenkranz said that Einstein’s views were not intended for public consumption and provide a shock to those who read them.

“I think a lot of comments strike us as pretty unpleasant – what he says about the Chinese in particular,” Rosenkranz told The Guardian. “They’re kind of in contrast to the public image of the great humanitarian icon. I think it’s quite a shock to read those and contrast them with his more public statements. They’re more off guard, he didn’t intend them for publication.”

Rosenkranz is also the assistant director of the Einstein Papers Project at the California Institute of Technology and has written several books about the life of Einstein.

The remarks in his journal are markedly different to the public image Einstein had in his later years.

In 1946, speaking at Lincoln University, the first degree-granting historically black university in the U.S., Einstein said that racism was a “disease of white people” and added “I do not intend to be quiet about it,” according to a 2007 article in the Harvard Gazette.

Einstein was a founder of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and left it his literary estate and personal papers. He declined an invitation to serve as Israel’s first president.

He died in 1955 at the age of 76.

As many Jews do, it appears that Einstein spoke one way in public and another way in private.

  1. Einstein instinctively recognised that the Chinese are the only people capable of out-jewing the Jew. See the following quotes as proof:

    “What is it these Chinamen talk about? And the answer is, Money. It may be said they talk, think, dream of nothing else.” – H.A. Giles: Chinese Sketches. 1876

    “They are the original, true and only real shop-keepers, and in every position of life, even the farthest removed from the atmosphere of commerce may be said to think in money. As with the Jew, their instinctive habit is one of perpetual appraisment.” – Archibald Colquhoun: China in Transformation. 1898

    “In many respects this human species bears a striking resemblance to the Jewish, especially in the total absence of all culture, and the one-sided emphasising of civilisation; but the Chinaman is much more industrious, he is the most indefatigable farm-labourer in the world, and in all manual work he has infinite skill; besides, he possesses, if not art (in our sense) at least taste.”- H.S. Chamberlain: Foundations of the Nineteenth Century. 1899

    “Thrifty and patient and cunning as Jews, the Chinese can accommodate themselves to any climate and to any environment. They can live in Java or in Siberia, in Borneo or in Thibet. Unlike the modern Jews, however, they are more to be feared in industry than in commerce; for there is scarcely any form of manual skilled labor at which they are not capable of killing white competition. Their history in Australia has proved this fact.” – Lafcadio Hearn: China and the Western World. 1896

    “After General Grant’s tour around the world, he told Senator Stewart that the most astonishing thing which he had seen was that wherever the Chinese had come into competition with the Jew, the Chinese had driven out the Jew. We know the persistence of the Jew, that he has held his own against every other people. Despite the fact that he has no home and no Government, that he has been ridiculed and persecuted by all men, that everywhere he is an alien in race, country and religion, he has laboured on, patiently, resolutely, distancing every rival, surmounting every obstacle, compelling even his enemies to acknowledge his shrewdness and his determination till to-day in Russia, in Austria, in Germany, in England, the Jew is bitterly conceded to be master in the editorial chair, at the bar, in the universities, in the counting-house and in the banking office; while the proudest of monarchs will undertake no enterprise requiring large expenditure until he is assured of the support of the keen-eyed, swarthy-visaged men who control the sinews of war. Generations of exclusion from agriculture and the mechanical arts and of devotion to commerce, have developed and inbred in the Jew a marvellous facility for trade. And yet this race, which has so abundantly demonstrated its ability to cope with the Greek, the Slav and the Teuton, finds itself outreached in cunning, outworn in persistence and over-matched in strength by an olive-complexioned, almond- eyed fellow with felt shoes, baggy trousers, loose tunic, round cap and swishing queue, who represents such swarming myriads that the mind is confused in the attempt to comprehend the enormous number.” – A. Judson Brown: New Forces in Old China. 1907

  2. Absolutely awesome! Since the ((()))’s have been promoting this plagiarist as the smartest man ever and that he’s Jewish lololol. I hope this truly red pills a whole bunch of people to the fact that yes genetics and DNA factor into behaviors.

  3. “The man whose name is synonymous with genius” More like (((rat genius)))

    Gee I wonder who’s responsible for spouting the smartest man in the world narrative…. einstein wasn’t a genius he was a liar a thief and a plagarist and hes partly responsible for helping build weapons of mass destruction with other jews an shabbo goy scientists see manhattan project for more info

  4. HOLD IT!!! This cant be true…EVERYONE knows that ONLY white men can be rayciiss an shit… NEVER a jew….
    maybe einstein wasnt as stupid as i thought tho…]

  5. So basically Eisenstein was not ((censored)) writing about his travels Until later in his miserable Kosher life where he discovered only white people were racist …was he speaking of him self ..another elevated JU jackass ..

  6. People are now saying that Einstein was not being racist at all, but only expressing the Jewish belief of Jewish Supremacy and the God-given right to be seen as superior to everyone else on Earth. For some reason this has not made this controversy any better.
