“Bad Schools” Will Just Not Die

If a prize were awarded for the worst policy idea, one that would waste billions in some futile quest for the impossible, the indisputable winner would be uplifting the academic bottom by fixing their “bad schools.” It is a seductive idea that never seems to die despite repeated failures; it even seduces free-market conservatives infatuated with school choice remedies. What can possibly explain such stupidity?

Michael Eric Dyson’s Sermon to White America

By most measures, Michael Eric Dyson is an accomplished man. He is an ordained Baptist minister, and after stints at universities as prestigious as Brown, DePaul, and Columbia, he is now a professor of sociology at Georgetown. He is a regular commentator on television and radio programs, he has written over a dozen books, all published by well-respected houses such as Oxford and St. Martin’s. For a public intellectual, this is as good as it gets.

Who’s Afraid of Affirmative Action?

Meritocracy is rare indeed, however far back in history we may look.  Member-of-my-family-ocracy, on the other hand, can be found almost everywhere.  Political dynasties are as old as time.  Ancien régime France let state posts be passed down from father to son, like a house. In clannish Arab lands today, one’s spot in college, the army, or the civil service is largely determined by the power of one’s relatives. David Pryce-Jones on Arab society: To take the everyday matter of wanting to obtain a job, a young man approaches the head of his family or clan, his patron.  The head …

The Slow Cleanse

White Nationalists believe that our race will become extinct unless we create homogeneously white homelands where our people can reproduce and fulfill our destiny, free from the interference of others. Yet even whites who find this idea appealing think that actually creating white homelands would be impossible or immoral. For the ethnostate requires ethnic cleansing. Borders must be redrawn, and tens of millions of people must pick up and move. If Europe is to be preserved, every single African, Middle Eastern, and South or East Asian immigrant must leave, and all their descendants too. In the majority-white colonial nations of …

BBC Question Time On Trump’s Presidency

So the God Emperor has ascended to the throne and now comes the time of plenty as our liberal masters have to deal with it as a fact of political and cultural life. The American liberal elites have been pummeled by Trump and his supporters for 18 months and many of us here in Britain could do nothing more than offer our support from the sidelines. Our own liberal masters were somewhat shielded from Trump while he was merely a Republican candidate, but no longer, now they too have to deal with it and we, like the Americans, get to …

Castizo America: The Synthesis of Civic Nationalism and Liberalism

The largest obstacle to the victory of the cultural marxist left in the United States is probably civic nationalism, the deracinated attachment felt mostly by White people to the United States and “traditional” values. Even after decades of mass immigration and social poisoning, a massive bloc of the White population still loves its country. They have voted for a man who promises to restore it, Donald Trump, and to do so on a politically incorrect platform of nativism and protectionism. But President Trump cannot bring back yesteryear’s America. The country is too diverse and liberal now, as the policies of …

Transracial Adoption and the Black-White IQ Gap

In the United States, Blacks score about 15 points lower on IQ tests than Whites do (Roth et al., 2001). There is a debate about why. On the one hand, there are “hereditarians” who argue that this gap is due to a mixture of genetic and environmental causes and that both factors contribute a significant amount to the gap. On the other hand, there are “environmentalists” or “egalitarians” who argue that the gap is 100% caused by the environment. By looking at Blacks raised in White homes, either due to adoption or because they are biracial, we can test whether …

Regression to the Mean

I am taller than the average American male. This can only be for a combination of two reasons: genes and the environment. I have no idea which environmental factors might have made me taller than average, so if my height advantage is part genetic and part environmental in origin I will probably only pass on the genetic portion to my children. Unless they, by sheer luck, also get the same environmental advantages I did, they will be more like the average person, in terms of height, than I am, but still somewhat taller than average due to my genes. They …

An Alt Right Take on Jeff Sessions’ Confirmation Hearing

Senatorial procedures show how the conflicts of the day play out in the official political sphere. So when the confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) to become Attorney General occurred, I watched much of the live stream to see what would happen. It became clear to me that although Senator Sessions is a popular, well-regarded figure in the upper house, his nomination struck a nerve at America’s existing – and future – racial conflict.

Race, IQ, and Poverty

(This post was co-written with John Macintyre) Summary: In this post, I am going to look at how well differences in socio-economic status can explain racial IQ differences. First, we will see that affluent Blacks score lower than poorer Whites and Asians on tests of cognitive ability. Second, it will be seen that the Black/White IQ gap is highest among the rich and lowest among the poor. Third, it will be shown that the Black/White SES gap has fallen dramatically over the last 100 years while the Black/White IQ gap has not. And finally, it will be seen that most …

Requiem for a Dead Presidency

Today, this hallowed Day One of the Trump Age, we watch the man who has ran this country for the last eight years fly off into the distance on his presidential chopper and into the curio cabinet of political kitsch, a relic of a party that no longer exists.

Racial Discrimination in Loans

Racial differences in the ability to acquire a loan are sometimes pointed to as evidence of White privilege. These differences are said to lead to racial disparities in home ownership rates and entrepreneurship which in turn have a variety of long-term economic and social consequences. Though this story is often repeated, it is not justified by the relevant empirical evidence. The idea that Whites get loans easily due to White privilege is not consistent with the fact that Asians can get loans just as easily as Whites can.

America Should Be Ashamed: Why Isn’t HIDDEN FIGURES About “Nazi Scientist” Arthur Rudolph?

In the movie Hidden Figures Americans are being brainwashed with the Fake History that we couldn’t have made it to the moon without sassy black women doing the math. Paul Kersey has already pointed out that the flight path trajectory was actually developed by a white Southerner, Dr. Jack Crenshaw. But there’s an even more Politically Incorrect truth: we couldn’t have done it without Germans—specifically, Nazi rocket scientists. For that matter, we probably couldn’t have launched the Star Wars anti-missile program and won the Cold War. I know. I was there. And the shameful treatment America meted out to one …

John Brown – Murderous Monomaniac

I was raised to understand an extremely important, but usually overlooked, aspect of United States history – that the abolitionists were bloodthirsty terrorists. And, of all those vipers, none were as dangerous, deranged or psychotic as John Brown. As of yet, he has not been transformed into a national hero, though some quarters of the country have lionized him – think urban (colored) areas and leftist schools. No doubt (either this year or next) Hollywood will paint the man, not as the homicidal murderer he was, but as a martyr of the “muh civil rights” movement.

The Real Obama Legacy, Part 4: Chicago as a case study of liberal failure in American cities

Part 1: Foreign Policy Part 2: The Economy Part 3: Race Relations We have chosen Obama’s adopted hometown of Chicago and the actions taken by his friend and former Chief of Staff Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel as a case study to illustrate how liberal ideologically driven interventions actually exacerbate a problem without solving it. The unsolved problem is the skyrocketing number of murders in Chicago, the highest in almost 20 years. In 2016 Chicago had more murders than Los Angeles and New York combined. A staggering total of 762 people were murdered in Chicago in 2016, more than 2 murders …

The Real Obama Legacy, Part 3: Race Relations

Obama was voted into office on the promise of “Hope and Change,” and chief among the many hopes for many voters was that there would be a dramatic improvement in race relations. This did not occur. In fact, Gallup polls showing historical trends found that racial attitudes for both Blacks and Whites were substantially worse after nearly 8 years of Obama than prior to that. Importantly, the dropoff really began in 2013, after Obama’s reelection.
