Example text

The Kenyan eugenicists did [ 39 ] RACE AND EMPIRE not, however, use the most obvious methods, such as pedigrees, statistics and intelligence testing, which were applied by British eugenicists when assessing the intelligence of large social groups. When examining race, an area in which British eugenics had not prescribed a methodology, the Kenyan doctors most radically made histological counts of brain cells and physical measurements of brain capacity. This led to the adoption of a particularly pathologising theory about biological inferiority in the East African brain.

The Kenyan eugenics movement was more unusual in the absence of a programme for the improvement of the population. Negative eugenics was impractical because the supposed incapacity affected the entire African population; for the same reason, there was no mention of implementing a policy of positive eugenics that would encourage more intelligent Africans to have more children. It is entirely predictable that the eugenicists in Kenya should have been so preoccupied with race; it is perhaps more surprising that in a country so dominated by racial issues and racist attitudes, theories of scientific racism did not emerge earlier.

Kenyan eugenics provided a reassuring verification of the innate difference between coloniser and the colonised, but also inevitably echoed the sense of being biologically out of place that haunted Kenyan settler culture. The question of how unified a community the Kenyan settlers were has been the subject of some debate among historians. 89 In an important study of the white Kenyan political arena, Redley examined the factious and complex splintering that characterised settler politics, caused by the politicisation of economic interests.
