Like the fog in Carl Sandburg's insipid poem, Martin Luther King Day this year seems to have crept up on the nation on little cat feet. We have heard few of the usual neo-conservative slobberings over how they wish they could have marched with King in Selma, nor even many of the usual lamentations of... Read More
If there was any flash of humor to relieve the excruciating tedium of the Democratic National Convention last week, it probably came from the lips of the Rev. Al Sharpton, who was allowed his several minutes at the podium at a time when the grand masters of the convention hoped nobody was paying attention. Unfortunately,... Read More
Slowly but surely the Democratic Party and its pals on the left are figuring out how they have managed to lose most presidential elections for the last 30 years or so—by alienating white males. Now they are working on what they might do to get the white guys back, but progress on that front seems... Read More
The most recent contribution to racial harmony comes fromCharlottesville, Virginia, where the Washington Post reports that some people are alarmed at "racial profiling" by local cops in their efforts to catch a black serial rapist. ['DNA Dragnet' Makes Charlottesville Uneasy, By Maria Glod, April 14, 2004] Thanks to the foes of "racism," the rapist may... Read More
With Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry now the obvious winner of the Democratic primaries, it has proved to be true once again that highly unified black voters determine the party's nominee. Last fall I wrote a column arguing this would be the case this year as it has been in every election since 1988 where there... Read More
Sooner or later it was certain that the lawyers for black basketball player Kobe Bryant would start yelling "racism" in defense against charges that he raped a white woman. Just as O.J. Simpson's defense was able to get him acquitted of the double murder of two whites in 1995 with the same tactic, so lawyers... Read More
"Malvo's Drawings Attack U.S. Racial Bias," the Washington Post'slead Metro story informed those readers who bother with the local news last week. [By Serge F. Kovaleski, December 5, 2003] "Racial bias" is the Post's way of covering up the dirty little secret painfully emerging from the trial of Jamaican immigrant Lee Boyd Malvo, charged as... Read More
"I do not like the Confederate flag," black pundit Shelby Steeleinformed the readers of the Wall Street Journal last week in a long commentary on Vermont ex-governor Howard Dean's recent remarkthat he wanted to be "the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks." "It excludes me, profoundly," Mr. Steele asserts. [Yo, Howard!... Read More
It's hardly news when the Rev. Al Sharpton denounces a white politician as "anti-black," but when the veteran racial demagogue who gave the world the Tawana Brawley hoax blasted his fellow Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean last week, there was a ripple in the press. [Sharpton Calls Dean's Agenda 'Anti-Black,' By Brian Faler, Washington Post,... Read More
The dim idea of the week comes from Washington Times columnistArnold Beichman, a 90-year-old neo-conservative wonderboy who has suffered a brainstorm--that the way for President Bush to win the election in 2004 is to demote Vice President Cheney to national security adviser and put current national security adviser Condoleezza Rice on the ticket. The purpose,... Read More
One aspect of white-black relations since the end of the "civil rights movement" that no one hears much about is the black retreat from the forced integration that both the movement and the federal government demanded. As the illusion of "color-blindness" began to vanish and an explicitly black racial consciousness emerged, many blacks began to... Read More
One likely result of the war with Iraq will probably be the further glorification of the multicultural, multiracial America that the architects of the New World Empire seek to build, with the country's multicultural, multiracial army held up as a model of what American society can, will and should become. Unfortunately, armies are not very... Read More
One of the underestimated benefits of mass immigration, the Open Borders Lobby likes to tell us, is that it imparts a fascinating diversity to an otherwise drab, boring, and tedious white Anglo-Saxon civilization. You probably could not have fooled William Shakespeare with that argument, but it seems to work well enough on many Republicans. In... Read More
Black History Month, previously known as "February," hasn't even begun yet, and already the Public Broadcasting System is treating the nation to propaganda fests about the Emmett Till case of 1954 and the anti-black "hate crime" in Jasper, Texas of 1998. Martin Luther King Day, just concluded, was merely a walk-up to what will be... Read More
The Confederate flag and most other white Southern symbols have been stripped down from almost all public monuments in the South and whatever other parts of the country might once have sported them, but white-haters still can't let it go. The most recent installment of white-hatred comes from Vanderbilt University, where a black professor is... Read More
For most Americans not actually involved in the manhunt for him, the racial identity of the Washington sniper (or both snipers) was entirely irrelevant. But to American blacks, according to the Washington Post,the race of the serial killer who for three weeks was the most hated and feared man in the nation was obvious enough:... Read More
The national crime rate is now down to its lowest levels since 1973, according to new government statistics, but that probably doesn't make the people of Wichita, Kansas, any happier. There, jury selectionstarted last week for the trial of what may be the most brutal mass murder and rape in the state's history, a history... Read More
Only a week or so after a debate in the U.S. Senate about Sen. Ted Kennedy's hate crimes bill,[PDF of bill text] a real hate crime actually took place in New York City, but probably neither most of the senators nor most Americans even heard about it. As the New York Timesheadline described the crime,... Read More
Nothing more clearly reveals the hypocrisy of the whole concept of "hate crimes" than the contortions of the police and city government of Charlottesville, Virginia, in trying to avoid charging 10 blacks accused of assaulting and beating several whites with racial hatred—unless it's the contortion of the press in trying to avoid seeing hate where... Read More
"Hate crimes" against whites, ignored by the national media, now appear to have become so commonplace that I receive accounts of three or four a week from all over the country. Because most of them are covered, if at all, only by local media, it's often difficult to confirm them or learn any details about... Read More
If a white law student, after flunking out of school, had shot and killed three black people, you can bet your law books we'd have a national crisis on our hands. Jesse Jackson would pop up to lead whites in repentance and threaten riots if justice were not done, and a small army of FBI... Read More
At Harvard University, the New Year blasted off with a little lesson in the Afro-racist version of what the Nazis used to call Gleichschaltung—literally, disciplining of the opposition, but more accurately translated as kicking in the teeth of anyone who doesn't do and say what you tell him to do and say. Indeed, the year... Read More
If there's a shortage of hate crimes in your community, you can always try to dig one up from the remote past. In Duluth, Minnesota, the closest thing to a hate crime anyone seems able to find is the lynching of three blacks in 1920 by a white mob that believed them guilty of raping... Read More
If there is going to be a white awakening in this country, a realization among whites that they are slowly becoming a subordinate class of citizens and victims of an emerging non-white, racially conscious majority, it may start in Cincinnati. In that city, ripped apart by three days of race riots in April, some whites... Read More
After four straight days of anti-white mayhem in Cincinnati, the national media evidently decided that they could no longer keep their lid on one of the nation's largest race riots since the 1960s. Therefore, in place of simple suppression, what the nation's news watchers got was spin—that the oppressed blacks of Cincinnati took to the... Read More
The news unfit to print for the last couple of weeks has to do with black violence against whites trying to celebrate "Fat Tuesday" in cities all over the country. Known in French as "Mardi Gras" in New Orleans, the day from now on might be better known as Bloody rather than Fat. In Philadelphia,... Read More
The drama of the week consists not in the politics of tax cuts in Washington but rather in the dynamics of raw racial power on the nation's college campuses. David Horowitz, a neo-conservative foe of black racism, has been trying to publish ads against reparations for slavery in college newspapers. Some won't publish the ads... Read More
The great South Carolina battle over the Confederate flag ended last week, not with a bang but -- quite literally -- a whimper. House Majority Leader Richard Quinn, the Republican who led the movement to remove the flag from the capitol dome where it has flown since 1962, actually burst into tears. "My vote was... Read More
