Eric Peter Kaufmann (born 11 May 1970) is professor of politics at Birkbeck College, University of London. He is a specialist on Orangeism in Northern Ireland, nationalism, political demography and demography of the religious/irreligious. Eric Kaufmann was born in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He claims to be "a quarter Chinese and a quarter Latino" and that he passes as white while some of his cousins do not. His father is of Jewish descent [...]
In a lecture titled "Is Britain a Post Racial Society?" published on YouTube, Kaufmann states that racism and racial self-interest are not the same, but overlap in certain aspects. He says that racial self-interest is "collectively rational, but becomes racist when it violates right to fair treatment of other groups". What is to be considered "fair treatment" is not defined. He also considers "opposition to interracial marriage" to be racist.
