Charles Darwin’s Racism

At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world,” he predicts. “At the same time the anthropological apes … will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state … even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of now between the Negro or Australian and the gorilla.

Charles Darwin, quoted by Bill Muehlenberg

Whatever Darwinist hagiographers may claim in mitigation, Darwin believed it a scientific fact that Negroes were less ‘evolved’ than Caucasians. Of course, evolution can make no value judgements about what is ‘higher’ and ‘lower’ anyway’ – all species have adapted to their specific environments, but Darwin still believed in such things as ‘progess’ and moral values even after the ‘death of God’
