Brunner’s Syndrome and the Black Violence Gene in Africans

“We don’t want to talk about inbreeding and how it leads to mental illness… It’s too taboo. We also don’t talk about how they [Muslims, Afro-ethnics] are genetically different in their propensity for violence or rape even though the empirical evidence is overwhelming.”  — Chuck C. Johnson

Brunner's Syndromeby David Seiner, South Africa

There are diseases and susceptibilities associated with archaic admixture.  Numerous authors and researchers have pointed to remarkably similar and consistent findings regarding the so-called “violence gene”, which occurs many times more frequently, most predominately, among those of African descent.

In 1992 a controversial study came out of the Netherlands, “X-Linked Borderline Mental Retardation with Prominent Behavioral Disturbance: Phenotype, Genetic Localization, and Evidence for Disturbed Monoamine Metabolism.”

A summary now appears at,

Afro-Americans possess the Black violence gene too?

MonoamineRecent studies have sparked a controversy by suggesting that an unusually large number of African Americans possess a gene that is linked with violent behavior. The gene contributes to the regulation of the amounts of monoamine oxidase in the individual’s brain. This enzyme affects levels of neurotransmitters that are known to play an important role in modulating emotion and behavior, such as dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine.

There are different versions of this gene, and each version contributes to differences in the amount of monoamine oxidase the individual’s brain is likely to have…


The early 1990s saw an explosion in the research of the role monoamine oxidase plays in the brain after the study of a family with a rare mutation had an extremely high number of violent criminals. The mutation this family had led to very low levels of monoamine oxidase and low IQs. It came to be known as “Brunner’s syndrome” after H.G. Brunner (photo), the researcher who discovered the gene. Along with his team of researchers, they authored the paper “X-Linked Borderline Mental Retardation with Prominent Behavioral Disturbance: Phenotype, Genetic Localization, and Evidence for Disturbed Monoamine Metabolism.”

Study by Kevin M. Beaver, Michael G. Vaughn 2012 found 5.2% of blacks had the 2R allele at risk for violent behavior; only 0.1% of whites

From the Study:

Kevin M. BeaverAll affected males in this family show very characteristic abnormal behavior, in particular aggressive and sometimes violent behavior. Other types of impulsive behavior include arson, attempted rape, and exhibitionism. Attempted suicide has been reported in a single case. The locus for this disorder could be assigned to the Xpll-21 interval between DXS7 and DXS77 by linkage analysis using markers spanning the X chromosome.

Another study in 2012 on Monoamine oxidase by Kevin M. Beaver of the Univ. of Oregon – Criminology and Michael G. Vaughn, PhD St. Louis Univ., published in Comprehensive Psychology found:

that 5.2 of the black subjects possessed the highest risk 2R allele whereas only 0.1 percent of whites had it.

Could genetic research be unlocking and confirming differences in brain function, innate reactiveness to fight or flight, intellectual abilities, and many more or less obvious differences between subspecies, which have become politically incorrect to point out?

This research is back in the news.  “Alt right” activist Chuck Johnson met with two Republican congressman in the halls of Congress on June 17.  From NBC News,

Activist who met with congressmen about ‘DNA’ posted about black ‘violence gene’

Chuck JohnsonAn alt-right activist who met with two Republican congressmen to discuss “DNA” and “genetics”… linked to stories about how African-Americans “possessed a ‘violence’ gene.”  Chuck Johnson met with Reps. Andy Harris of Maryland and Phil Roe of Tennessee on Thursday… Genetics in the context of race was not discussed in the meeting, according to Harris’s statement.

Note – Andy Harris has been targeted multiple times since, by the Democrats for defeat.  He has easily won reelection each time in his eastern Maryland district which includes stretches from Elkton to Salisbury to Ocean City.

If the rest of mankind really wants to understand and control, even counteract, the increasing flow of migration away from the turmoil of Africa and the middle-east, is it not incumbent on us to research this thoroughly? In those regions that always appear to be at war between tribes? Understanding and acknowledging these genetic underlays to behavior would be a great start. But then comes the really hard part : How, armed with this knowledge, do we engineer future society to achieve the peace, harmony and absence of violence and criminality that we all desire for the world of future generations?
