The time has come for a review post on the laws of behavioral genetics. I will talk about why these laws are laws and why they are important. Eventually, this will be merged into my Behavioral Genetics Page, but for now, I will start with this primer. The five laws of behavioral genetics are: All... Read More
Throughout my American Nations series (based on the books American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America by Colin Woodard and Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America by David Hackett Fischer) I've talked about how North America is divided into distinct ethnocultural regions based on historic settlement patterns. These... Read More
In my earlier entry (Clannishness – The Series: How It Happened), we saw that the thing that made the difference between WEIRD Northwestern Europeans and their more clannish neighbors was the selective pressures that each underwent during their histories – particularly since the fall of Rome until the present. This era in time established the... Read More
My earlier entry (Clannishness – the Series: Zigzag Lightning in the Brain) established that there are deep distinctions between Northwestern European peoples and most of the rest of the world, and that these differences have a huge impact on the world, including on levels of human development, the strength of democracy and democratic institutions, scientific... Read More
From: See my earlier column Terrorism Quotient The idea is that there is a suite of behavioral traits that is more prevalent in many Muslim populations which makes them more likely to perpetrate acts of terrorism. ... This is illustrated by the number of terrorist acts (defined here as instances of mass murder/assault/hostage taking) per... Read More
In the preceding part (The Donald Trump Phenomenon: Part 1: The American Nations), I talked about the geographic (and hence ethnic) variation in support for the various 2016 U.S. presidential candidates. In this part, I will focus on the turmoil in this particular election cycle, and what it means for our society and acceptance of... Read More
Updated, 4/6/16. See below! The 2016 U.S. presidential race has brought out a serious whirlwind of events, the likes of which haven't been seen in a long time, if ever. Despite my own expectations for a boring campaign, this election cycle has been anything but. Most significant to this excitement has been the rise of... Read More
This page is to make an easy to use (and easy to share) central repository for my posts on the science of behavioral genetics. This is fundamental reading for anyone interested in HBD – indeed for anyone interested in the human sciences in general.   The five laws of behavioral genetics are: All human behavioral... Read More
All photos by me. Joy to the world my friends!
A persistent misunderstanding both in the world of HBD and general medical and psychological science at large is the notion of what constitutes a "disorder." When does a phenotype represent a physiological or behavioral malady? For behavioral issues, most people regard the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as the "final word" on... Read More
Chanda Chisala has been producing pile after pile of nonsense for quite some time. At first, I was content with simply leaving comments at his posts refuting his rubbish because it was rather easy to point out where he was full of baloney. Since then, I've been banned by him, mostly for my signature flair.... Read More
Many of the commeters here at have complained about my heavy-handed treatment of commenters. Well, to those people, I say too bad. They key problem is that many critical commenters don't realize how ignorant about matter at hand they are. Realize that the whole reason you're reading me is because I know things that... Read More
(My reader poll results will have to wait, but rest assured, they're coming.) Yet another terrorist attack in Paris – this year: I wish I could say I was even remotely surprised – perhaps only at the precise time, and that's all. For this is just another example of what I and so many others... Read More
I want to take the temperature of the room, so to speak. Here's your chance to let me hear from you. I encourage all readers to participate, including the occasional drifters, lurkers, etc. The more people participate, the more accurate the results will be. Please chime in! All votes are anonymous unless you choose to... Read More
It seems few understand regression to the mean and how and why it works. Most people (and by most people, I mean most scholars – i.e., the people who should know better) have a vague understanding that it has something to do with IQ. They seem to have the impression it means that the children... Read More
It's that time again. There's been another horrific high-profile mass shooting. And as usual, all the nonsense that typically circulates when that happens is circulating again. "We need more gun control!" "The problem is mental illness!" Or "it's not mental illness!" "It's racism!" Chris Harper Mercer added another layer to the matter – the fact... Read More
Post updated, 9/23/15 9/22/15. See below! This will be the first column in a series on the broad human behavioral dimension dubbed "clannishness" by HBD Chick. I've talked quite about clannishness here, and of course it is the main theme of HBD Chick's blog. For background, see: start here | hbd chick clannishness defined |... Read More
First of all, I've updated my earlier posting Genes, Climate, and Even More Maps of the American Nations. I've included a few more maps, including a map of the American Nations superimposed on average annual precipitation: Go check it out! Second, here's my occasional periodic F.U. to the more vile White Nationalist elements out there.... Read More
Some really interesting and quite significant publications have appeared in recent days. Each adds key pieces of evidence to the topic of HBD, and I wanted to talk about each here. I may do review columns like this periodically, somewhat akin to HBD Chick's (get well soon!) linkfests. This is nothing short of a brilliant... Read More
The Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) current "Featured Extremist" (their words) is none other than the mild-mannered Henry Harpending of West Hunter. They go into a fair amount of detail about Harpending and his work, but take a look at what they say. Are they actually trying to discredit him (emphasis mine)? Henry Harpending is... Read More
Welcome to my column! I'm going to be a regular contributor here at The Unz Review. All my blog posts and pages have been archived here. My regular readers pretty much know what to expect from me. All you've come to appreciate will continue here. For new readers, I've written several gateway/introductory postings in the... Read More
(Please see also link to older post at the bottom of this one.) Donald Trump:  Elon Musk: Mitt Romney:   Previously: Idiocracy Can Wait?
Just as mainstream wisdom on human psychology and evolution is filled with heaps of rubbish (rubbish which I've covered here extensively – see 200 Blog Posts – Everything You Need to Know (To Start)), the space of dissenting voices on this matter is also filled with its own share of rubbish – and worse. I've... Read More
Updated, 9/11/15 9/4/15. See below! Throughout this blog, I've talked a lot about the American Nations – a concept, based on a book by Colin Woodard, that North America is divided into several ethno-cultural-political regional "nations". These nations are distributed approximately as shown above. The empirical bases of the existence of these ethno-cultural entities has... Read More
Some of you may have encountered a popular meme, shared by many celebrities and other people in the spotlight. Well in this post, I wanted to fix it just a bit: We've seen similar corrections to false PC memes, like the one at the left. But the above meme on the "racist brain" is clearly... Read More
The family is about to get a little bigger: Due February 29th(!) I've also updated my post: 200 Blog Posts – Everything You Need to Know (To Start) to incorporate the latest study on racial differences in brain surface topology. So you can see why (well, among many other reasons right now) I kindly ask... Read More
(Emphasis mine.) It’s safe to say that Rachel Dolezal never thought much about the endgame. You
What does it take to make a nation great? What makes a country a great place to live, a healthy society, and a bastion of stability? Various theories and ideas have been put forward, and I think they are all pretty much bunk. I think we can apply a little reductionism here, and conclude that... Read More
One of the key points I've tried to stress on this blog is that micro-scale population structure – that is, fine genetic variation across populations can have a substantial impact on societal characteristics. We aren't just talking about continental racial variation. We aren't even talking just about ethnic variation. Sorting within an ethnic groups can... Read More
Unlike many commenters in this space, I don't particularly lament the secular rise of "universalism" that has occurred in Northwestern European societies (and their derivatives). Indeed, as a Black man, this is especially important to me. Without universalism, slavery may never have ended in the West. Without universalism, my family may never have been able... Read More
Post updated, 7/23/15. See below! At long last, I reach my 200th blog post. It's been a quite a ride! Blogging on human biodiversity – or simply humanity – has taught me a great deal. Since the start, I hoped that I could offer some meager contribution to mankind with this blog. I will continue... Read More
An enduring mystery (among many mysteries) is the existence of women exhibiting sexual attraction to other women. Unlike male homosexuality, where a likely explanation has been put forth (see Greg Cochran’s “Gay Germ” Hypothesis – An Exercise in the Power of Germs), female same-sex attraction remains the realm of speculation. My previous foray into the... Read More
New material added 6/12/15. See below! Yes, I know several of these deserve to be collected in their own posts. But, as I'm on a schedule with posting, and as these are much too good to miss, I will collect them here, at least for now. NEW (6/12/15) On religion and culture NEW On modern... Read More
This page will be a simple collection of some of my best recent tweets. It'll be for my own reference as well as yours. I'll keep it updated as I put out some good tweets. Keep tuned.        
One of the greatest pieces of evidence demonstrating that the family/rearing environment has no effect on eventual outcomes is the absence of birth order effects. Birth order is an excellent test for these effects: it is something that systematically differs between siblings and is bona fide non-genetic (mostly). Hence, it's a great way to see... Read More
This is a page that will collect my key posts in my series on the American Nations, that is the various ethno-culturo-political regions that make up North America. The U.S. and Canada (and to some extent, Mexico and the Caribbean) are divided according to these broad cultural zones formed by colonial settlement and shaped by... Read More
I've added a new page, which covers many of the key facts about obesity – facts which are conveniently ignored or misunderstood in the many emotionally charged discussion of the matter. See: Obesity Facts I've made this a page rather than a post because I anticipate updating it fairly frequently, as more information becomes available.... Read More
I'm starting this page to serve as a central repository of significant concrete facts about obesity. I'm making this a page because I anticipate frequently updating it as necessary. There will be no speculative musings or inferences based on partial evidence, everything here will be solid facts as per the research. Most people who comment... Read More
There are many comments I get that, while not necessarily being disrespectful or mean-spirited, nonetheless add little value, are egregiously wrong and ignorant, and would waste a lot of my time and energy to address. Fortunately, many of them are by first-time commenters and get caught by the moderation filter. I have deliberately left many... Read More
The Wall Street Journal has published a sequel to their infamous wave-generating article "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior" written by Amy Chua based on her book Battle Hyms of the Tiger Mother. Only this time, the we're on the opposite end of Eurasia. Like its predecessor, this article, "Why French Parents Are Superior" has generated... Read More
I'll be away for the next week. Have fun everyone! I've temporarily enabled comment moderation for all comments. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I'll be completely incommunicado, so I hope everyone out there in the world behaves. Try not to destroy too much while I'm away. :)
Post updated, 10/21/14. See below! It's general trope in the HBD community: people are getting dumber. The low IQ are outbreeding the high IQ, leading to a slow decline in genetic intellectual potential in the population. Indeed, my own analyses seem to have shown that there was a fair fertility advantage among the lower IQ... Read More
Can be quite substantial. Jump off the Empire State Building and see for yourself. But, beyond that, the question remains how much of the variation in health outcomes and longevity can be explained by behavioral variation? Well, we don't quite know. But we do have evidence which indicates that – at least in the developed... Read More
So the time has come for your gracious blogging host to request your assistance in helping my family meet our daily necessities. When my computer broke down, prompting my previous funding drive, you guys and girls literally came to the rescue, and allowed me to fix it right up. A deep debt of gratitude to... Read More
In his latest VDARE column, John Derbyshire has written a glowing discussion of yours truly: John Derbyshire On JayMan—A Righteous Jamaican-American | VDARE.COM Well... more on that shortly. That is my thing. A couple of my tweets on the matter shoul
What was his excuse? (From NBC) Where's your psychoanalysis now? Previously: Beware Armchair Psychoanalysis
Here are the results of my reader poll. All told, it looks like I had about 450 respondents. Unsurprisingly, it seems most of my readers are male. Most of you (at least of the respondents, anyway) are smart, with over 80% claiming to be college educated, and 1 in 5 having a terminal degree. Now... Read More
I'll let the tweets speak for themselves:
I want to get an idea of who my readers are. I have a fair idea of where I get my readers, thanks to the Wordpress stats, but I'd to know some things that they don't tell me. I'd like all readers, including lurkers and occasional readers, to please answer the ALL the following polls.... Read More
With the recent spate of mass shootings, (at least four high-profile incidents occurring in the U.S. and Canada in the last two weeks), the issues of guns and violence inevitably come up. Naturally, the politically correct wisdom, which is founded on the blank slate (or at least, a bare slate), wants to blame these events... Read More
