    The same things are said today about the Chinese. Is everyone racist or does he have a point?

    See , even here you're intimating that he's wrong or incorrect ( politically maybe) for insinuating that we aren't all exactly the same. Its almost like the mere utterance of a thought that that may be the case is verboten from the modern citizen.

    Just taking the other side for the purpose of my post. I really have no feelings or opinions on it, since I am not familiar with any peoples of the 1920's

    He isn't ancient. He was an autist even for his time. He didn't even get the stigma of marrying his cousin.

    He also said nationalism is the measles of mankind but was a zionist.

    The absence of theory of relativity would not send us back to the stone age.

    His work on the photoelectric effect might do that however.

    I think the writer needs to check his PC hierarchy.

    Einstien is Jewish. He can't be racist.

    In fact calling him racist is anti-semetic.

    Kind of ironic coming from a Jewish white guy.

    If a modern famous white person was caught saying that about Chinese people they would be in trouble. James Watson for example. Few famous and notable living white people can dump on the Chinese like that. Or none I should say without backlash.

    Who are all these people saying it about the Chinese? What public figures particularly?

    So he criticized nationalism while being a Zionist and criticized white people for being racist despite being racist...



    One standard for goyim, another for G-d's Chosen People.

    When a genius makes an observstion you don't agree with, maybe it's you that needs to adjust, not the genius.

    I didn’t mention anything about public figures. I’m just mentioning that many people have made this observation about Chinese people and cultures influenced/created by them (East Asia)

    Einstein was an incredibly intelligent man and I would take his personal experience knowing how brilliant he was and how anti-racist he was, over some retard that never visited China but is sure he is wrong because racism is baaaad man
