Rational Dialog with BLM Is Not Possible

If we are to judge from recent events, BLM protestors (and a seemingly overwhelming percentage of Blacks in general) don’t seem able to discern the difference between the impression created by a few seconds of a video clip, and the reality and attendant circumstances behind that video.  They know how they feel when they watch […]

Reality Shock in the American Classroom: A Guide for the Perplexed

  A review of Facing Reality in American Education by Robert J. Walters There are over 1200 schools of education in the United States awarding upwards of 175,000 Masters Degrees each year. Prospective students are increasingly selected on the basis of demonstrated commitment to egalitarian ideology; in any case, all of them are  intensively marinated […]

On Dylann Roof’s “Manifesto”

Before Dylann Roof set out to commit the shooting at the Emanuel A.M.E. Church, he set up a very simple web-site called and posted there a manifesto that referred to his intended actions. I think that it is worthwhile to examine Roof’s manifesto for some clues about how he ended up doing what he […]

The Rachel Dolezal Phenomenon

The case of Rachel Dolezal, the “trans-Black” who is the head of an NAACP chapter and has apparently reported false “hate-crimes” is all over the Internet. It’s hard to know if this is just a case of rent-seeking by someone taking advantage of Black privilege or a case of someone who really does identify as […]

Excerpt from “My journey to race realism”: Reformers’ search to close “the gap”

The following is the second of two excerpts from an article, “My journey to race realism,” to appear in the Summer issue of The Occidental Quarterly. Prof. Ray Wolters is Thomas Muncy Keith Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Delaware. First Excerpt: The Burden of Brown Before 2010, I was aware of evolutionary biology and evolutionary psychology.  […]

Excerpt from “My Journey to Race Realism”: The Burden of Brown

The following is the first of two excerpts from an article, “My journey to race realism,” to appear in the Summer issue of The Occidental Quarterly. Prof. Ray Wolters is Thomas Muncy Keith Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Delaware. In the 1960s and 1970s I forged through the academic ranks.  My dissertation received favorable notice […]

The Nation of Islam as an African-American Group Evolutionary Strategy

For many years I’ve had a tempered respect for Black Nationalists. If our struggle is a difficult one, hampered at every turn by the hostile controllers of culture, theirs is perhaps an even greater labor. To start with, leading Black Nationalists have had to contend with the biological handicaps of their race — the most […]

The Justice Department’s Bogus Report

Apropos Thorborne Richardson’s article on the Ferguson lynch mob, an article by John R. Lott, Jr. in the New York Daily News rounds out the story (“Ferguson Fakeout: The Justice Department’s Bogus Report“). After failing to nail Darren Wilson despite what were doubtless gargantuan efforts, Eric Holder’s department sought their pound of flesh anyway by writing a […]

Martha Stewart and the Ferguson Lynch Mob

The New York Times states: They were four words that became the national rallying cry of a new civil rights movement: “Hands up, don’t shoot.” The slogan was embraced by members of Congress, recording artists and football players with the St. Louis Rams. It inspired posters and songs, T-shirts and new advocacy groups, a powerful […]

“Birth of a Nation” at 100 Years Old

Liberals and multiculturalists hate it when confronted with works of obvious genius which don’t fall into the pattern of their worldview. Along with angst-fuelled hand-wringing over certain works by Shakespeare and Wagner, a more modern manifestation of the problem is the cinematic landmark, The Birth of a Nation (available in part here), which will quietly celebrate […]

Ferguson: Media Images in the Service of White Dispossession

“Look, folks, policing is done this way. You may like to live in Santa Monica and have your little wine party in the backyard and drive your Jaguar and do your little barbecue…. Know that the reason you are allowed to do that in the safety of your community is because police Officers go out […]

The “Black Code”: Blacks discriminate against other Blacks who socialize with Whites

You know all those ads where Blacks (usually cool and competent) and  Whites (often dorky and behaving weirdly) are hanging out together, often drinking beer while watching football. Best friends forever. The Hollywood/Madison Ave. image of America’s harmonious multicultural future. Now we all know that this is a fantasy of the people who run the […]

Prof. Ralph Scott on the costs of not mentioning race differences

I recently had a conversation with an academic woman who was strongly against any discussion of racial differences in academic ability even though she seemed to believe they exist. I countered that in the absence of such a discussion, the conversation usually reverts to charges that the reason for the racial achievement gap (RAG) is […]

A Tale of Two Trials: What the George Zimmerman and O.J. Simpson Verdicts Reveal About Racial Denial

One transparent outcome of the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial is the racial disconnect between the average American and the nation’s powerful elites (the mass media, politicians, and “civil rights” leaders). The ever-widening gulf between racial reality and racial fantasy—the daily repetition of Black violence in contrast with the media-driven narrative of […]

Race Relations 101 with Ann Coulter

Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama Ann Coulter Sentinel (a division of Penguin), 2012 $26.95, 326pp. In more ways than one, Ann Coulter stands out among “conservative” commentators. Her feisty, tart, hard-edged prose and photogenic allure — coupled with her gusto to address issues most “conservatives” deliberately avoid — have generated a loyal […]

Chris Matthews: Reality Check on Racial Fantasies

If you ever had any doubts about how out of touch with reality MSNBC’s media pundits are on race then look no further than Schlock-Meister Chris Matthews and the Chutzpah-challenged crew at MSNBC during the recent coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, which includes convicted slanderer and race hustler Al Sharpton. (For a […]

Review of Beyond Human Nature, by Jesse J. Prinz

Jesse J. Prinz is the Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the City University of New York and an Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina. His academic specialism is the philosophy of psychology, and he has produced books and articles on emotion, moral psychology, aesthetics and consciousness. His latest book, Beyond Human […]

Another Hate Industry Start-Up: The Omar Thornton Memorial Fund

You remember Omar Thornton. He was that Black guy in Manchester, CT who two years ago was caught stealing beer from his employer. Why he was stealing it is a mystery. There had been no hurricane to spark a looting spree, and beer distributorships typically give excellent employee discounts. Perhaps he was just engaging in a little […]

Things sure have changed at National Review

Does anyone remember James J. Kilpatrick? At one time, in the late 1970s to the mid 1980s he was apparently one of the most widely read columnists in the country. Do you know how he became famous? In the early 1950s he was an unknown editor/editorial writer for a newspaper in Richmond, Virginia. Then he […]

Race realism: Breaking into the mainstream

A friend  and I were talking about Arthur Jensen–the psychologist who reignited the race and IQ debate with his 1969 paper “How Much Can We Boost IQ and Scholastic Achievement?” published in the Harvard Educational Review. My friend said that starting with that paper there had been a huge amount of supportive research published in […]

Ethnic Pressure on Hollywood for Diversity

There is no question that Hollywood is internally driven to promote diversity, as shown, for example, in two recent TOO movie reviews: James Edwards’ Driving Miss Ditzy: Review of The Help and Edmund Connelly’s “Unstoppable: Why I write.” Typical movies and TV fare not only turn on diversity themes, like The Help, but so much of […]

Driving Miss Ditzy: Review of “The Help”

As we’ve noted many times before, the cultural Marxists never tire of fanning the dying embers of the “Civil Rights” movement (CRM) because it can always be relied upon to burst into flame, warming the hearts of a credulous American public. Whenever the Left encounters massive public skepticism regarding the benefits of homosexual marriage, open […]

David Starkey on Black Culture and the Riots

Poor David Starkey. He thinks that Black culture had something to do with the riots. It didn’t matter how often he said that he didn’t think all Blacks are not involved in this culture. And he never mentioned the fact that Black criminality is a world-wide (genetically-based) phenomenon, as shown by J. Philippe Rushton and […]

The Run-up for the Riots in London

For some politically correct people, the riots in London of the last few days, which by now have spread to the rest of England, may come as a surprise. Actually, it is surprising the riots did not break out earlier, although a lot of news concerning ethnic violence is suppressed by the authorities and the […]

White Participation in the Riots in England?

It’s frustratingly difficult to get any solid information on the  racial composition of the riots in England, so I thought I would elicit comment. The official account seems to be that race had nothing to do with it. For example: These are not race riots: Though they began, on Saturday afternoon, with a small protest […]

The MSM Blackout of Rampaging Blacks: Why We Need the American Third Position

Some egregious examples of Black crime are riveting people around the world, but, as usual, it was difficult to find mentions of race in the media. A TOO writer informs me that he scoured the media on the London rioting and looting. He writes “I’ve deliberately not looked at racial realist sites to find out about what’s […]

Whites Feel Discriminated Against

A recent  psychology paper suggests a bit of trouble on the road to our glorious multicultural future. The title says it all: “Whites See Racism as a Zero-Sum Game That They Are Now Losing” by Michael I. Norton and Samuel R. Sommers (Perspectives on Psychological Science 6(3), 215-218, 2011). The paper documents “an emerging belief […]

Martin Luther King voted for Barry Goldwater!

That’s what $arah Palin, Glenn Beck, William Bennett and a whole bunch of other conservatives would have you believe. They tell us that King stood for freedom, liberty and limited government. Conservatives love to proclaim “Bull Connor was a Democrat! And Martin Luther King was a Republican!” Here’s just a few samples: Martin Luther King […]

Edmund Connelly: Black Rage Means White People Die

Edmund Connelly: In his recent blog, Steve Sailer tells us about last week’s shooting of eight White workers near Hartford, Connecticut. Sailer notes that  although the only evidence discovered thus far about actual racist behavior toward the black shooter “appears to have been in the stupid and resentful mind of a thieving mass murderer, he […]

James Edwards on Mel Gibson

James Edwards’ current TOO article (“On the crucifixion of Mel Gibson“) emphasizes themes that have been a staple here: Jews adopting very different strategies and attitudes in Israel than in the Diaspora and Jews making alliances with other minorities against the White majority. It reminds us once again that, unlike the old WASP elite, the new elite […]

Christopher Donovan: The Black Supremacist Mayor of Harrisburg — And Her Obedient House Press

Christopher Donovan:  Harrisburg, Pennsylvania recently elected a bizarre black woman named Linda Thompson as its mayor.  The subtext of her campaign — and now, it appears, her governance — is as follows:  “Harrisburg had a white mayor for years.  I’m black.  The population of Harrisburg is majority black.  So, put me in there.  I’ll kick out […]

Edmund Connelly: Steve Sailer gets it

Edmund Connelly: Now I’ve got more reason to like Steve Sailer. He recently showed again on his VDARE blog why I’ve recommended him so strongly. Recall my two columns last year recommending his work—see here and here. I really think he does a great job at quantitatively showing how Jews have become the new elite […]

Race Bias and Conception Risk: Implicit and Explicit Whiteness in Action

A recent article in a top psychology journal (“Race Bias Tracks Conception Risk Across the Menstrual Cycle” shows that women have more race bias when they are most at risk for conception. Further, it shows that race bias is even stronger if the woman feels more vulnerable to sexual coercion. The study once again shows […]

Jews and Other Minorities

In this video, Ann Schaffer, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Belfer Center for American Pluralism, states the basic philosophy of Jews in America: The Jewish community has always worked on the premise that as a minority, our security, our strength, our well being in America is interdependent with those of other minorities. This is […]

Further Evidence for the Racial Polarization of American Politics

Recent election trends clearly indicate an increasing White disenchantment with the Democrats, especially among the working class. The enraged Whites who are expressing themselves in the tax revolts, tea parties, and town hall meetings of 2009 are middle- and lower-middle class.  Ronald Brownstein points out that their incomes have been stagnating or declining for years, […]

Christopher Donovan: Smith v. Berghuis: The Black Defendant's Right to a Not Guilty Verdict

Christopher Donovan: On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Smith v. Berghuis, quite possibly the most absurd lawsuit of the year.  Needless to say, the claim was racial discrimination.  Equally needless to say, he’s got supporters in the media and among whites. Diapolis Smith, a Black man, shot and killed Christopher Rumbley during a bar […]

James Murray: NAACP official legitimizes killing White police

James Murray: Seattle NAACP leader James Bible has demanded a role in selecting the new police chief (and justified Black terrorist attacks on police) because the Seattle Police department is a racist force of “occupiers.” Bible made this statement during a press conference in Seattle on Thursday (1/21/10), and it was broadcast on KIRO-TV during […]

Christopher Donovan: If You Look Over to Your Right, You'll See a Dying Country

Christopher Donovan: Who says you can’t make some money from the multiracial decay of California? Only miles from the scenic vistas and celebrity mansions that draw sightseers from around the globe – but a world away from the glitz and glamour – a bus tour is rolling through the dark side of the city’s gang […]

How Should a White Female Evaluate Potential Rape Threats?

Reginald Thompson: If a White female encounters a White man and a Black man in the same day, the Black male is at least 9 Times More Likely to Rape her. Obviously, if a woman is wary of being raped she’ll assess a Man in his twenties as a greater potential threat than an old man or […]

Christopher Donovan: In Berekely, Ca., Robbing Whites to Pay Non-Whites

Christopher Donovan: Occasionally, injustices confronting whites are too diffuse to be seen clearly.  We fight wars on behalf of Jewish causes, but it’s rarely discussed.  We pay a heavy tax burden for the non-whites in our midst, but the cause and effect takes a few mental steps to track. Recently in Berkeley, California, however, the […]

Christopher Donovan: New York City Begins (More Precipitous) Slide Detroit-ward

Christopher Donovan:  I learned a lot in my seven years of living in New York City.  It’s got allure for a reason.  For bright lights, big adventure and sheer cliffs of challenge, New York is unmatched. It is also, for a White person, no place to make a home.  New York City is essentially a […]

Christopher Donovan: Ricci Decision Hurts Whom, Again?

Christopher Donovan: It’s amazing the tidbits you find while crumpling up old newspaper for kindling for a Christmas fire. “Employers Hurt By Bias Decision” was the odd headline I spied in a July edition of LawyersUSA, a trade rag for the legal profession, while trying to get the logs to ignite. My first thought was: […]

Christopher Donovan: Boys Choir of Harlem No More

Christopher Donovan: It says a lot about the organizational inabilities of blacks that the venerated Boys Choir of Harlem, a 41-year institution that once ranked as an American cultural icon, is now reported as dead. Consider the magnitude of the incentive to keep it going.  Here you have a perfect storm of America’s hopes and aspirations […]

Christopher Donavan: A Quick Confession of (Tempered) Jealousy

Christopher Donovan:  From libertarian (and law school) days, I remain on the mailing list of a group called the Institute for Justice, a libertarian pro-bono legal group dedicated to fighting eminent domain, free speech restrictions, government-backed market cartels, and so on.  I’m looking at their most recent “Liberty & Law” (no link, but their website […]

Christoper Donovan: In Philly, Failed System… or Failed Demographics?

Christopher Donovan: The Philadelphia Inquirer is running a series on the low rate of convictions secured by police and prosecutors in the city.  The system’s overcrowded.  The sheer volume of cases makes the system unwieldy.  Defense lawyers postpone cases in the hopes that witnesses will disappear.  The black “stop sntichin’” culture keeps witnesses off the […]
