* Einstein’s bespoke travel diaries reveal racist views of filthy Chinese

Excerpts from Einstein’s diaries written during his tour of Asia in the 1920s show his shocking racist and misogynist views.

Written between October 1922 and March 1923, the diaries see the scientist musing on his travels, science, philosophy and art. In China, the man who 20 years later famously described racism as “a disease of white people” describes the “industrious, filthy, obtuse people” he observes.

He notes how the “Chinese don’t sit on benches while eating but squat like Europeans do when they relieve themselves out in the leafy woods. All this occurs quietly and demurely. Even the children are spiritless and look obtuse.”

"Even those reduced to working like horses never give the impression of conscious suffering. A peculiar herd-like nation [ … ] often more like automatons than people," writes Einstein.
After observing that the Chinese tend to have many offspring, he further comments, "It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us, the mere thought is unspeakably dreary."

Though Einstein later expressed a positive opinion toward the Japanese, in his diaries he questions whether their weaker "intellectual needs" are a "natural disposition."

He saw them as intellectually inferior, quoting - instead of challenging - Portuguese teachers he met during his travels who claimed that the Chinese "are incapable of being trained to think logically" and "have no talent for mathematics".
