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
Just exactly how many murders will it take to convince the Open Borders lobby, whose leader now seems to be President Bush, that mass Third World immigration is not such a good idea? Up in Wisconsin, a gentleman named Chai Soua Vang, a 36-year-old Hmong immigrant, just blew away six people, apparently because they threw... 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
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
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
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...

"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
No doubt because of the influence of xenophobia and nativism in this country, America has not yet had an opportunity to welcome a new sport that the glorious multiracial diversity of the new millennium has already created. But in more cosmopolitan centers like Paris and Australia, the game is blossoming. It consists in the ritual... Read More
In Cincinnati, as I noted in a column last month, city police seem to be giving up on enforcing the law—because whenever they do enforce it, they risk ruining their careers and lives by being accused of "racial profiling," "police brutality" or just plain "bigotry" pure and simple. But Cincinnati is not the only city... Read More
Less than a week before Timothy McVeigh entertained the nation with a dose of the hot juice, a beaming Attorney General John Ashcroft popped up before the House Judiciary Committee to announce that a new Justice Department study shows there is "no evidence of racial bias in the administration of the federal death penalty." Since... Read More
