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.

The Black Heart Of Darkness

A few weeks ago I was out walking the fields with my dog when she bolted after a rabbit grabbing it before it managed to escape into the hedge. With her jaws locked across the rabbit’s back my terrier then proceeded to vigorously shake the rabbit from side to side, breaking its spine and rupturing its internal organs, the rabbit squealed and went limp, the dog then dropped the rabbit and watched, amused with a slowly wagging tale, as life left the rabbit. The whole spectacle took about 15 seconds to play out and after I watched the dog to …

CHICAGO KANGZ: WHEN THE LARPING STOPS

Defenders of #BlackLivesMatter routinely defend the Black racist organization by saying that its message does not imply other lives don’t matter. It’s not a zero-sum game, we are sanctimoniously told: It’s the same dynamic that researchers at Harvard Business School described in a recent study: White people tend to see racism as a zero-sum game, meaning that gains for African Americans come at their expense. Black people see it differently. From their point of view, the rights pie can get bigger for everyone.

Whose America First?

One of the most remarkable turn of events in America’s 2016 election has been the revitalization of the phrase “America First!” America First as a slogan has its origins in the pre-World War II America First Committee which was dedicated to keeping the United States out of that war. It was a slogan that energized many in the hinterlands against what they saw as a useless entanglement over foreign interests many thousands of miles away. Notable supporters of the Committee included future presidents John F. Kennedy and Gerald Ford along with cultural figures like Walt Disney, Frank Lloyd Wright and …

How Blacks Changed Our School

A once-vital Catholic school is now is steep decline. I am a teacher at a small Catholic school, where I have taught for over 15 years. During that time I have seen a massive demographic shift in the student population. As you might expect, the effects have been mostly—and significantly—negative. This shift closely mirrors the overall trends in our society in terms of its effects on group behavior and identity, and the future of our country.

The Unbearable Burden

Author Nikesh Shukla—a fat brown man who appears to sweat a lot—has just been named one of Foreign Policy magazine’s “100 Global Thinkers of 2016.” He won this award for his work focusing on the “unbearable whiteness of publishing.” Ironically, his surname is a word of Sanskrit origin meaning “white.” In books such as The Good Immigrant, the British citizen complains that British society is unfairly dominated by indigenous Britons. I think I’ll move to India, bitch about how the Indian publishing industry is stacked in favor of Indians, and then expect to receive grants and awards…or maybe not.

Somebody’s Spreading the STDs

I was standing in the express line (twelve items or less) at Food Lion, one of the South’s low to mid-tier grocery chains. I prefer Food Lion over Kroger and Whole Foods because it’s genuinely quicker to get in and out when running errands – the bourgeois and intolerable SWPLs and organic-only non-GMO fanatics swarm the two stores and make the experience more than unpleasant. There is a tradeoff for shopping at Food Lion though, you’ll experience a mixed (and colorful) bag of humanity. On one hand, you’ve got your salt of the Earth – country folks, rednecks and blue-collar …

Affirmative Action

A black kid from an upper-middle income family and school will get more preferential admissions treatment than this girl will. What an Orwellian euphemism, “affirmative action”. 1997 SAT Data In 1997, Stephen Epinshade found that being black is worth 230 points on the SAT, being hispanic is worth 185 points, being asian costs you 50 points, and being a legacy is worth 160 points when applying to a university.

Skinning the Invisible Knapsack, Part 3 of 5

Among schoolgoys, there is a rather vindictive prank one can do to a classmate who has left his backpack or bookbag unattended, known as skinning. The bag is emptied of its contents, turned inside out, and then zipped back up with all of its contents inside. In 1988, Peggy McIntosh published one of the seminal works in the far-left dominated academic field which has come to be called “Whiteness Studies” in a number of circles. “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack,” is an excerpt taken from a working paper produced by the women’s studies department of Wellesley College, and lists …

Why Affirmative Action for Hispanics and American Indians?

An example of chance and irrationality in American history. Historians (e.g., Syme 1958: 168, 419, 435) [1], have pointed out that the most serious distorting factor in historical thinking is the powerful tendency of the human mind to ignore the role of chance and irrationality and to assume that what happened was a logical development. [2] In this essay I will discuss an important example of this tendency: the inclusion of Hispanics and American Indians as beneficiaries of affirmative-action preferences–and how, in order to justify their inclusion, a social virtue was invented that had never existed before: diversity.
