    Einstein - Chinese are industrious, filthy, obtuse people - Beeb

    Einstein's travel diaries reveal physicist's racism

    Hmm, is telling the truth racist?

    But the famous physicist reserves his most cutting comments for Chinese people.
    According to a piece in the Guardian about the diaries, he describes Chinese children as "spiritless and obtuse", and calls it "a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races".
    In other entries he calls China "a peculiar herd-like nation," and "more like automatons than people", before claiming there is "little difference" between Chinese men and women, and questioning how the men are "incapable of defending themselves" from female "fatal attraction".
    Einstein was pretty spot-on. Maybe we going to revise all our opinions about great minds and free thinkers, due to perceived "racist" attitudes they may have had?

    The correct terminology these days is ‘landscape vaginas’.

    The correct term is vulva if you're referring to the visible slit.
    Sideways vulvas. Landscape vulvas.

    Well, we don't see a pussy every time we look in the mirror.

    So you do have that advantage.

    As someone else posted, it's not racist to say something racist that wasn't racist at that time and place, and let's be honest not all of them are revolting.

    Beware of the Yellow Peril.
    The esteemed Khun Albert was typical of his cultural conditioning - backward Eurocentric.



    His contemporary, the revered Joseph Needham, thought differently.

    I must say that I have closely examined quite a few Chinese vaginas and have not found a single one that was sideways...









    I guess I'll just have to keep on looking!
