I think I got a subscription to National Geographic for Christmas - or at least a complementary copy. The issue I received was dedicated to the fact that the world's population will climb to 7 billion this year. Rather, I think it was dedicated to lamenting the fact. Then it occurred to me. Obsession with the world's population is actually racism. Let me explain...
In articles like this you never see pictures of beautiful blond girls in bikinis on the beach as exhibiting too many people on earth. You see pictures of Indians at huge Hindu gatherings. So too National Geographic. For shame.
What's going to alarm the readers of these English-print articles: the sight of too many brown people. I hate to say it but if the reverse were true - that the birthrate of the West was 2.5 or 3 and the rest of the world's was 1.5, would articles like this even be written? No, that would be great! The white West would be winning.
To see how endemic this racism is, go to Google 'Images' and type in 'overpopulation'.
