I wrote up a big post attempting to answer your question, but when I tried to submit Anon Cafe was down again. I still have it up on my computer so I will submit it tomorrow morning. Pray my computer does not reset or something, I will be very upset.
Basically the post talks about some of the flaws in the caste system regarding mutts and marriages between castes in The Law Code of Manu.
The ideal that is not reached in these laws is present in the Bhagavad Gita, particularly in the first chapter. This will give some good contrast for tomorrow’s post.
>With the preponderance of vice [adharma], O Krishna, the women of the family become immoral; and from the immorality of women, O descendent of Vrishni, unwanted progeny [varṇa-saṅkaraḥ] are born.
The interesting term in this verse is “varṇa-saṅkaraḥ”. ‘Varna’ means according to the Cologne Digital Sanskrit Lexicon variously color, race, species, kind, tribe, order, caste, etc, while ‘sankara’ means mixing together, intermixture, commingling, especially of castes of races. So basically, varna-sankara unambiguously and undeniably means that mixed race offspring result from a preponderance of adharma, which effects the women and leads them into degeneracy and coal-burning.
>An increase in unwanted children [sankara] results in hellish life both for the family and for those who destroy the family. Deprived of the sacrificial offerings, the ancestors of such corrupt families also fall.
Again we “sankara” in the Sanskrit. What this verse truly says is that more mutts make society a hellhole for all.
>Through the evil deeds of those who destroy the family tradition and thus give rise to unwanted progeny [varna-sankara], a variety of social and family welfare activities [jati-dharma] are ruined.
Again we see the term referring to mixed race children and how they arise from a destruction of tradition and a spreading of vice. The term jati-dharma is also interesting. ‘Jati’ alone refers to the form of existence fixed by birth, whether this is race, species, lineage. Jatidharma means caste, duty, generic or specific. Adds a bit of nuance.
We see that the Gita proclaims that race-mixing is the result of adharma, not being in tune with the Natural Order, and that the result of this is mongrels, hell on earth and the destruction of the family. Quite a contrast to the Laws of Manu, as shall be seen.
If they had followed the Gita they’d still be White today
