From the Toronto Star: Actually ... the way to calculate this is not versus the total population but versus the nonblack population: I come up with Canadian blacks being 4.5 times as likely to be homicide victims per capita as Canadian nonblacks. That's not really that bad, because according to the CDC, in 2019 American... Read More
From the New York Post: For hiring NFL coaches, there's the official Rooney Rule that a team must fly in for interviews at least one black candidate. Perhaps there will soon be a Rooney Rule for dating websites where you will have to take at least one black woman out to a $100+ dinner before... Read More
From USA Today, we learn of another way that whites are racist: by not doing those things often enough that would provoke other people to murder them: The CDC's homicide stats do a better job of straightening out the race/ethnicity of victims than do the FBI's stats, in which 93% of Hispanics are lumped in...

Selected episodes from the Canadian Broadcasting Company's sci-fi anthology series 21 Black Futures: What Is the Future of Blackness? are now streaming on CBC Gem. For example, there is "The Prescription," which is about a miraculous future in which a Gorilla Glue-like product dismantles systemic racism: The Prescription Open Your Big Black Mouth, a brand-new...

From the New York Times news section: In a Changing Military, the Army Eases Its Rules for Women’s Hair The Army, which is increasingly dependent on female soldiers, has issued new regulations that allow women to wear lipstick and no longer limits their hair to a tight, disciplined bun. Capt. Jawana McFadden said that wearing... Read More
From Harvard Medical School: Anti-Racist Epidemiology Research suggests reparations for slavery could have reduced COVID-19 infections and deaths in U.S. By JAKE MILLER February 10, 2021 Research This article is part of Harvard Medical School’s continuing coverage of medicine, biomedical research, medical education and policy related to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the disease COVID-19. Civil... Read More
From KUSI: Ever since the return of feminism in 1969, it has been dogma among liberals without children that children don't have strong opinions about what kind of toys they prefer, or at least not until society malignantly socially constructs their preferences for them. Periodically, when feminism falls out of fashion, for example, between about... Read More
Back in February 2020, the Establishment Press was mostly worrying about the pandemic in terms of how it could lead to racism against Asians by Trump supporters. Now, during the Biden Era, with blacks being caught on video perhaps a little more often than normal attacking blacks (or it could just be randomness or it... Read More
From Bloomberg's opinion section: No, after a long, nice downward trend, they went up after Ferguson for the last two years of the Obama Administration. Then the Trump Administration managed to win back about half of the First BLM spike in murders. Then came the Racial Reckoning post Memorial Day 2020. Mihm's argument is to... Read More
From the New York Times sports section: I reviewed Kahneman's bestseller in 2012. Thinking, Fast and Slow’s basic idea is helpful, if not terribly startling: Acts of human cognition can be pictured as falling along a continuum from intuition (which is fast and fun) to logic (which is slow and tiring). Snap judgments work well... Read More
Charles Darwin has been kept sacrosanct during the Great Awokening because his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life is about plants and animals rather than about humans and thus is a stick in the eye to Christian creationists. But ...... Read More
From The Independent, reporting on the first Barack Obama-Bruce Springsteen podcast: How much? More likely, almost none. I've been asking for some time for examples of Southern dynastic wealth that survived the Civil War and Reconstruction, and have gotten very, very few responses. Where did all the money go? Well, two famous quotes sum it... Read More
From the New York Times news section in 2018: ‘All I Did Was Be Black’: Police Are Called on College Student Eating Lunch By Daniel Victor Aug. 2, 2018 Smith College’s president apologized this week after a campus employee called the police on a black student and said she “seemed to be out of place”...

From WGBH: Citing Racial Inequities, Boston Public Schools Suspend New Advanced Learning Classes By Meg Woolhouse February 26, 2021 A selective program for high-performing fourth, fifth and sixth graders in Boston has suspended enrollment due to the pandemic and concerns about equity in the program, GBH News has learned. Superintendent Brenda Cassellius recommended the one-year... Read More
Back in 2019 I blogged: New York City has the smartest, most ruthless white parents in the country, so I wondered if Carranza's Hate YT tactics that had powered his fabulous career in Houston and San Francisco would come a cropper in New York. From the New York Times today: N.Y.C. Schools Chief to Resign... Read More
From the BBC: Amnesty strips Alexei Navalny of 'prisoner of conscience' status By Sarah Rainsford BBC News, Moscow Published 1 day ago Amnesty International has stripped the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny of his "prisoner of conscience" status after it says it was "bombarded" with complaints highlighting xenophobic comments that he has made in the...

From the Hollywood Reporter: Ta-Nehisi Coates and the Future of Superman FEBRUARY 26, 2021 2:00PM by Richard Newby The celebrated writer has the insight and experience to delve further into the mythos in way never seen on screen. After remaining grounded for far too long, Superman is finally ready to fly again. Though this time,... Read More
The interacting reasons that the U.S. has so many murders is that it has hundreds of millions of guns and tens of millions of blacks. The U.K. has very few guns, so few that the leading weapon of murder is the knife, and only 3 percent black. But we see the same racial patterns within... Read More
Black Trump fanatics are out of control. First they are beating up elderly Asians, now they are dognapping Lady Gaga's French bulldogs as retribution for Gaga singing at Biden's inauguration. From the Daily Mail: French bulldogs are for people like Lady Gaga who aren't quite committed enough to buy English bulldogs. They want to go... Read More
From Artsy: Study Finds Artists Become Famous through Their Friends, Not the Originality of Their Work Casey Lesser Feb 27, 2019 5:36pm ... Ingram and his colleague Mitali Banerjee, of HEC Paris, used MoMA’s findings to examine the role that creativity and social networks played for these artists, in relationship to the level of fame...

From NBC News: Violence against Asian Americans and why 'hate crime' should be used carefully Social media posts have conflated violence against people who are Asian American with hate crimes against the community at large, tying the crimes to pandemic racism. Feb. 25, 2021, 7:44 AM PST / Updated Feb. 25, 2021, 1:44 PM PST... Read More
From the New York Times news section: With New Grand Jury, Justice Department Revives Investigation Into Death of George Floyd As the state murder trial of Derek Chauvin, the former officer charged in the death of George Floyd, approaches, the federal government has accelerated its own investigation.

In response to a reader's question about differences in average cognitive test scores between blacks and whites, commenter Maven points us toward the PIAAC test of adults. PIAAC is done by the OECD who also do the famous international PISA test of 15-year-olds. PIAAC in 2017 found that men average very slightly better than females... Read More
From Gallup: And, no, it's not mature adults finally developing the courage to come out of the closet that's behind this 60% increase in the share of the public identifying as LGBT from 2012 to 2020, it's recruitment of fresh meat young bodies. Transgender and the bisexual catch-all are up dramatically among the young and... Read More
Unlike, say, the SPLC or ADL, who, ya gotta admit, at least work hard for their lucre, the main Black Lives Matter organization doesn't actually do much other than, I gather, own the intellectual property right to the phrase "black lives matter" (do they?) and collect Danegeld from frightened corporations. From the New York Post:... Read More
With 500,000 official deaths in the U.S., here's a question for helping come up with an objective assessment of how bad covid has been. The Spanish flu of 1918 hit men between 20 and 40 the hardest, thus leaving many widows and orphans. With 500,000 Americans now having died from covid, how many orphans (under... Read More
From NBC News, here is one of countless recent articles explaining that while, sure, it may look like most of the street violence against elderly Asians is perpetrated by blacks, but that's just a stereotype, while Experts all agree the real enemy is, as always, White Supremacy. But maybe you do need more cops? Last... Read More
From my new column in Taki's Magazine, here's my book review of Any Ngo's bestseller Unmasked exposing Antifa: Merrick Garland Is in the Dark about Antifa Steve Sailer February 24, 2021 When asked if he regards the endless attempts by Antifa rioters to burn down the federal courthouses in Portland and Seattle as acts of...

From a 2020 paper in the Quarterly Journal of Economics by Raj Chetty on college admissions to Ivy League colleges (plus Stanford, MIT, Chicago, Duke). It features Chetty's usual immense sample sizes from theoretically secret data sources (IRS, Census, testing agencies, etc.) that nobody had the chutzpah before to think that they could data mine:...

A reader writes: What's an easy to use source from the 21st Century?
Back in 2014, I predicted that the third book in the trilogy by economic historian Gregory Clark, to follow his A Farewell To Alms and The Son Also Rises, would be entitled For Whom the Bell Curve Tolls. And I was right. And Clark is getting canceled over it. From the Glasgow U. Guardian: I... Read More
From the Washington Post's database of police shootings: But, the police also occasionally manage to kill somebody without shooting him. Many people believe that George Floyd died from being restrained rather than from the fentanyl in his bloodstream.
There's now a preprint of a study of the efficacy of both the Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines among over one million people in Scotland. It looks like the British "first doses first" plan was a clever way to save the reputation of the British AZ vaccine after it underperformed in a clinical trial mandating two... Read More
Boring white-bread Iceland is finally being enriched by Diversity. From Iceland Review:
How much do we really know about the history of the Roman Empire? We have enough that Edward Gibbon could write a massive series just on the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire -- when Gibbon presented a new volume to his patron, the Duke of Gloucester, the duke responded, "Another damn'd thick, square...

Sure, Tolkien devoted careful attention to cultural and racial diversity, but mostly that of the Northern European variety. As I wrote for UPI in 2001: A century ago, fueled by Richard Wagner's operas, Northern European mythology was world conquering in high culture. Then, Germany literally tried to conquer the world. Following Hitler's Gotterdammerung, Teutonic and... Read More
Remarkably, the famous Wall Street charging bull sculpture wasn't commissioned, but was an act of street art perpetrated in 1989 by Brooklyn sculptor Arturo Di Modica and 40 friends in five minutes while the cops were away. (It's almost as if Brooklyn artistes depend upon the prosperity of Wall Street chads for their livings.) Since... Read More
An extremely relevant legal question is whether the concept of a "hostile work environment" applies to the protection of whites during this era of increasing anti-white hate among the powerful, such as Richard Carranza, the extraordinarily bigoted New York City public schools chief. For example, from the New York Post: Bronx educator claims she was... Read More
If you don't live in the San Fernando Valley, what's annoying about it is how it's all the same: its lack of landmarks and amenities. In contrast, if you do live in the San Fernando Valley, what's annoying about it is all the tiny differences, such as streets constantly changing widths and sidewalks appearing and... Read More
We hear much about the menace posed by racist robots, but mighty Google appears to have succeeded in inventing artificial intelligence with the natural stupidity of a professor of intersectionality. From A18 News: YouTube AI Blocked Chess Channel after Confusing 'Black' and 'White' for Racist Slurs Although the channel was restored within 24 hours, YouTube... Read More
As an opinion journalist, I am used to being the subject of individual opinions about me: everybody's got one! But I do value more significant and scientific opinions such as the 2019 Intelligence paper, a survey of human intelligence experts who found me to be by far the most accurate media source on their academic...

Updated graph Yesterday in "The Minneapolis Effect," while citing City Crime Stats day-by-day data on homicides in a couple of dozen major American cities, I lamented that the University of Pennsylvania researchers hadn't provided an aggregate graph summarizing all their cities, which could help distinguish between the validity of the crystallizing conventional wisdom that, well,...

From CNBC: Although I notice in the fine print that Twitter includes "multiracial" in "under-represented minorities," so maybe Jack Dorsey plans on hiring a bunch of half-Asian/half-whites and hope the SJWs are too low IQ to notice.
As I've been hollering since June, the media-endorsed Racial Reckoning drove up the murder rate hugely. So now the media is trying to palm off the blame on the pandemic. I'm sure it contributed in some complex fashion, but the obvious main cause was the George Floyd mourning process. A detailed analysis of the timing... Read More
The future Prime Minister explains in 2013 how life is like a packet of cornflakes:
Recently, an Asian woman in Queens was knocked down by an angry man of apparently non-black ancestry. Patrick Mateo was arrested for the assault. Mateo is a Spanish surname. But, who cares? He's going to play the role of the long-awaited Great White Defendant in the current brouhaha about blacks attacking Asians. From the New... Read More
