The Spanish language doesn't have neuter nouns, which drives Woke Anglos crazy: thus, they concoct ghastly neologisms like "Latinx." It's not our business to solve this problem that Anglos perceive in the Spanish language. Fortunately, in English we have a perfectly good neuter noun/adjective, which was widely used in baseball not long ago. "Latin" was... Read More
This "Humans of CIA" Diversity Video about the CIA's gay librarian who curates for the agents a selection of board games like Mastermind is not as funny as the all-time classic Woke CIA Lady with Generalized Anxiety Disorder: but it's fun to imagine Christopher "Best In Show" Guest being hired by the CIA to make...

Autogynephilia is a sexual fetish where men who are attracted to women get obsessed with a fantasy of themselves as a woman. It appears to account for most of the high profile M-to-F ex-men, but that fact has been kept hushed up for years, with disastrous effects on naive adolescents who aren't autogynephilic. Ray Blanchard... Read More
From the Wall Street Journal news section: Maybe the reason is because the murder surge has been concentrated among blacks?
Any bets on whether Sailer's Law of Mass Shootings applies in this case? From the New York Times news section:
Ten percent! Follow the science. You can't argue with statistics. Ma’Khia Bryant’s Journey Through Foster Care Ended With an Officer’s Bullet The 16-year-old girl was fatally shot while threatening a young woman with a knife. She had spent two years shuttling among Ohio foster homes, hoping to return to her mother. By Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs, Ellen... Read More
The most elegant "handshake link" of a living celebrity to Napoleon Bonaparte, who died 200 years ago this month, is likely via singer Paul McCartney, who was taught to oppose the Vietnam War in 1965 by mathematician Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), who grew up in the house of his grandfather, Prime Minister John Russell (1792-1878), who...

From the New York Times news section: Let's not mention the Racial Reckoning. Here's the U. of Pennsylvania's graph of 7 day moving average of homicides in Atlanta in 2020 (red line) vs. the average for 2015-2019 (grey line).
From the New York Times news section #10 Downing Street really isn't as lavish as the White House, and Prime Ministers are expected to pay for expenses for party business. E.g., in The Crown, Mrs. Thatcher is regularly shown personally frying up some kedgeree in her small kitchen for Conservative Party boffins when they stay... Read More
Is closing your downtown HQ a good way for a firm to reduce its chance of being held hostage by woke employees? If you appeal more to suburban and small town workers, you are less likely to have to deal with an internal crisis if, say, the CEO forgets somebody's pronouns than if you make... Read More
From the New York Times news section yesterday: Seems like this wouldn't do much good at boosting supply in the short run for reasons Alex Tabarrok outlines at Marginal Revolution, It's not like the whole world has lots of practice at how to churn out mRNA vaccines at mass scale and all that's keeping them...

From the New York Times news section: Psychiatry Confronts Its Racist Past, and Tries to Make Amends But there is a lot to apologize for — from Reconstruction to today. By Judith Warner April 30, 2021 ... In the late 20th century, psychiatry’s rank and file became a receptive audience for drug makers who were... Read More
Obviously, Caitlyn Jenner was always a little girl on the inside. What little girl hasn't wanted to grow up to own her own aircraft hangar? @JimmyGandhi asks: I don't know if the left can realize that late onset ex-men like Bruce Jenner tend to be on the right for reasons of John Galt-style self-image. The... Read More
A friend writes:
With Bill Gates in the news for announcing he and his wife Melinda, who got married on 1/1/1994 are getting divorced, I'm remind of an anecdote I've trotted out many times before about the arduous set of tests Gates devised to find his first wife. Back in 1988, my wife and I were staying with... Read More
From the Washington Post news section: But, as we now know, statistics are racist. I can never remember: Is it racist to not adjust medi
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Reality Check Steve Sailer May 05, 2021 ... What can be done instead? First, we must recognize that blacks have a very good deal in America even if they aren’t as rich as everybody else. While African-Americans are the poorest Americans, they should feel grateful that they are... Read More
From the Los Angeles Times: Police say gangs were often to blame; disputes at homeless encampments were another major factor. ... Preliminary data from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department show that homicides in surrounding areas increased by more than 113% in the first three months of this year, with 64 killings, compared with 30 during... Read More
There was a big change in political standards regarding ethics during the Watergate scandal of 1973-1974. Interestingly, the current President is one of only of two federal officeholders who were elected to Congress before Watergate. The other is Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), who lost in the 1972 election in which Joe Biden was first elected... Read More
From CBS58 in Milwaukee, as Wisconsin answers Minnesota's challenge for the lead in the 2021 iSteve content generator run for the roses: More than 300 gunshots ring out at Midtown Center in Milwaukee; 2 injured By: Victor Jacobo Twitter Posted: May 3, 2021 5:03 AM CDT MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Milwaukee police are investigating a...

From Psychology Today, which was considered a very liberal magazine 40 years ago but now seems to be on the free speech right. I wonder if it has changed or maybe just the times?
Here's a question I haven't seen much discussion about. There are currently a number of spending booms going on, with the first I noticed -- last July 4th's orgy of backyard fireworks -- being literally booming. For example, homes, home furnishings, cryptocurrency, etc. are up, up, up. There's even a new way to waste your... Read More
From Vox: After all, the girl in pink was armed with a purse puppy. If that doesn't demand a stabbing, I don't know what does. ... But the cries for justice that applied to George Floyd did not ring out as loudly for Bryant. Even after it was discovered that Bryant was living in foster... Read More
Google has finally updated its Ngram system for tracking the uses of words in books. It now offers usage data up into 2019. Above are the rate of usage of five demographic terms in English language books (with 3-years smoothing). Whatever happened to all the "Chicanos?" For a brief period in the late 1960s/early 1970s,...

iSteve commenter Paul Joliffe points out:  
So far, the covid vaccines are working out about as well as I had hoped for in my December 16, 2020 column "Let's Be Over and Done in '21." We are now up to almost 55% of the population of age 16 and over having received at least one vaccine dose. These vaccinations of 146... Read More
I actually don't know anything about football these days, but I thought this email from a friend was funny: This guy is 86-4 as a starter going back to high school. He looks rather like a recent reconstruction of Shakespeare's bad guy King Richard the Third. Here is Mrs. Lawrence, who is adorable. But this... Read More
As everybody knows, I'm some kind of crazed extreme anti-murderist whose model for policing is Mayor Bloomberg's NYPD. Heck, I'm such a fringe figure that I even liked Mayor de Blasio's NYPD when he had Bill Bratton running it. In my view, the decline in murders in NYC from 2,245 in 1990 to 289 in... Read More
Over the last year, consumer spending has suddenly reverted to 1950s-style keeping-up-with-the-Jones materialism. People are buying appliances and upgrading their home furnishings. Backyard recreation is suddenly huge. From the New York Times business news via Marginal Revolution: In the 1960s, it became fashionable to proclaim the superiority of experiences over possessions, so over time consumer... Read More
I've been predicting for some time that in honor of George Floyd, America's wealthy institutions will boost their diversity numbers by methodically ravishing the rest of the world of its smartest upper class / descendants of slave-sellers blacks. Thus, from CNN: Nigerian teen gets 19 scholarship offers worth more than $5 million from the US... Read More
Thanks to everybody who has so generously contributed to my April fundraiser. And for those who haven't yet, feel free to donate in May. Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the... Read More
I've made this joke many times over the years, but I think this refinement might be the best yet:
From The Atlantic in 2012: And the next year began The Great Awokening, and so our political debates stopped having their ethnic overtones and went back to being about the issues.
My impression from watching a lot of videos of cops that BLM complains about is that the quality of cops has gone up a lot over my lifetime. Here's an objective metric: what percentage of bullets fired by cops strike the target vs. missing or hitting some bystander? On the campaign trail last year, Joe... Read More
If Tucker Carlson is forced out of his gig at Fox by the ADL-led boycott of advertisers, he then might not have anything better to do than to run for President.
My vague impression is that blacks have been acting particularly exuberant lately. (Exuberant is like vibrant, only more so.) Is it due to remembrance of George Floyd or the stimulus checks? For example, from the New York Post: Somebody was hangry. The suspect's name is Arkies Tykill Somerville, and, yeah, he's black. This kind of... Read More
Some people like to imagine that the CIA is an ultra-competent organization of master spies concocting and implementing vast world-historical plots. But now the CIA has, once and for all, disproven all such conspiracy theories: "I am a cisgender millennial who's been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder."
I can't begin to make sense of what this tweet from Minneapolis is describing? There's some sort of barricaded No Go zone in Minneapolis in which the victims of the post-apocalyptic endemic violence have to drag themselves out of to be picked up by an ambulance? Remember when Minneapolis was the most boringly sensible big... Read More
As we all know, race does not exist: there is the most genetic diversity among sub-Saharan Africans. Except, never forget, race totally exists when it comes to Black Women's Hair. From Manufacturing Business Technology: The Chinese guy is thinking, "Hair, hair, hair ... This is LABORATORY!"
As I've been pointing out for quite a few years, the United States is undergoing a revival of superstition and witch-hunting in the name of Anti-Racism. Millions of modern Americans are deeply concerned that a vast secret coterie of White Supremacist Terrorists are signaling to each other on your favorite TV shows. For example, from... Read More
From the President's quasi-State of the Union address: And we won’t ignore what our intelligence agents have determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to our homeland today: White supremacy is terrorism. We are not going to ignore that either. My fellow Americans, look, we have to come together to heal the soul of... Read More
From Slate: Don’t Fall for Fertility Fearmongering About Trans Men Calls to “protect healthy bodies” are just another form of transphobic control.

An overwhelming deluge of legislation targeting the... Read More
From the Daily Mail: REVEALED: Feds 'had secret backup plan to ARREST Derek Chauvin in court if he was cleared of killing George Floyd' - and now the DOJ plans to pursue hate crime charges against him and the three other cops By RACHEL SHARP FOR DAILYMAIL.COM PUBLISHED: 22:37 EDT, 28 April 2021 | UPDATED:...

In 2018, Jacob deGrom won the National League Cy Young Award as the best pitcher with an earned run average of 1.70 despite a won-loss record of only 10-9. In 2019, he won the Cy Young again despite a record of merely 11-8. In 2020's mini-season, he went 4-2 and finished 3rd in the Cy... Read More
From the New York Times: Remember back when
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: In contrast, in northwestern Africa south of Portugal, both the geography and the culture of the Sahara cut off Europeans from sub-Saharans until the 15th-century Portuguese mariners made their great leap arou
From MIT's Senseable City Lab:
In the New York Times opinion section, Bret Stephens makes some excellent points about the outbreak of anti-white racism, if I do say so myself: Race and the Coming Liberal Crackup April 26, 2021 By Bret Stephens, Opinion Columnist ... But what about a case like that of Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black teenager who was... Read More
