Scientology and Racism

L. Ron Hubbard was a devout racist and as such put his hateful views of others to practice in Dianetics and Scientology. Hubbard wrote in praise of South African apartheid but Africans were not the only race he spoke negatively about. He also woke actively against Asians, Indians and the Jews as well as many other racial groups.

Hubbard’s thoughts on Africans

“You’ll find in Africans a fantastic amount of heavy space opera and so on, going on … which makes the colored African very, very interesting to process because he doesn't know why he goes through all these dances … and why he feels so barbarous ….”

Hubbard's thoughts on Asians

“When it comes to the Yellow Races overrunning the world, you may laugh … [The Chinese] have neither the foresight or endurance to overrun any white country in any way except by intermarriage. One American marine could stand off a great many yellowmen without much effort.”
L. Ron Hubbard

(Asia Diaries, 1927-1929)
as quoted by Russell Miller in Bare-Faced Messiah
page 42.

“One of the reasons they [the Japanese] have bad eyesight is probably these microscopic characters [hiragana] which have many lines and strokes to them. … We wonder why they went mad and bombed Pearl Harbor when they knew they couldn't win. That [the Japanese language] would be a reason.”

Hubbard's thoughts on Indians

“Now we say there’s, well, another place in the world—there’s India. Wonderful place — except for its people.”

15 April 1957.

Hubbard's thoughts on Jews

“Now it’s of peculiar interest to an Arab country that there is a company and a certain set of bankers who also finance the World Federation of Mental Health. …and we see that although the KGB and so forth seems to be associated with the World Federation of Mental Health, their other organization in action seems to go back to Jewish Bankers.”

Jessie Prince 
Throughout the many works of Scientology racist remarks are made by it’s founder however it did not stop there. Jesse Prince worked under Hubbard and was the second highest ranking member before leaving in 1992 and he spoke out saying that Hubbard could not believe that a black man could achieve the rank that Jesse Prince had. He was also subjected to racial slurs by the current leader of the sect, David Miscavige. Mr. Prince also stated that L. Ron Hubbard said on taped lectures that “African-Americans ... can't be cleared and the best thing to do is to just put 'em all on a barge and dump 'em in the middle of the water, just kill them genocide..."
