Hopping negro dances

“The other day i went to a book store in Basel, and found the latest assortment of books that was to be printed: a negro novel, just like negroes slowly migrate into the civilisation of europe in general.

Everywhere you find this enacting of negro dances, hopping of negro dances.

But we already have this negro novel. It´s extremly boring, ghastly boring, but people devour it.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Pregnant women should not read negro novels

“Yes, i for myself am convinced, that if we receive another number of negro novels, and pass them to be read by pregnant women, you dont have to see to it that negroes come to europe, that mulattoes are generated;

just by reading negro novels a whole number of mulatto children is created in europe, who are all gray, have mulatto hair, that will look all mulatto-like.” (Rudolf Steiner)

The whites are the ones that develop humaneness

“When the Negroes emigrate to the west, they can not gather as much light and warmth as they did in africa. So they turn red as copper, become redskins. That results from being forced to reflect some of that light and warmth.

This then glows copper red. They can not resist that. This is why the redskins get extinct in the west, in turn become a race that is ceasing to exist, dying of their own nature, that is receiving too little light and warmth, dying out because of the mundane.

The whites are actually the ones that develop the humaneness inside of them.” (Rudolf Steiner)
