I take offence about the vilification that was given to southpaws, left handed people like me, by the following article at the so-called race realist site vDare. This site is more newsy, but its friend site, American Renaissance takes the line (which I have refuted in articles at this site), that East Asians are so much smarter than whites (Nordics). Wow, from the defenders of white civilisation too. Anyway, here is the vilification:
“A surprising number of recent US presidents have been southpaws. Obama, George W. Bush, Reagan, Carter and Ford would all have probably smudged their writing when they were at school. However, we are not evolved to be left-handed to any significant degree. According to New Zealand psychologist Michael Corballis, the human propensity to be right-handed is caused by our heightened ability to communicate. The left hemisphere controls vocalization in most species. As our ancestors learned to walk upright, they started using their hands to communicate as well as their voices. They used their right hand, because this is controlled by the left hemisphere. Increased use of the right hand meant that we started employing the right hand for pretty much everything. So, the “norm” is to be left-hemisphere-dominant for language. According to Corballis, if somebody is left-handed, this means that they are right-hemisphere dominant for language.
