It only recently dawned on me that the U.S. involvement in the Italian War, first fighting the Italian army in North Africa and Sicily, and then fighting the Germans in Italy all the way up into 1945, made Italian mass culture extremely fashionable in the U.S. Here for example is a 1944 New York Times...

black cop really pounded the Mexican jerk in the gray t-shirt after his comrade in the red bandana tried to reach up and steal the black cop's gun (at about 0:04 to 0:06): Cops really, really don't like it when you grab for their guns. The white cops then try to get their partner to... Read More

Even in this age of the smartphone, is your military-age son too dumb to make his hegira to the EU without getting lost? Sure, you've been telling him for years about how Europe is the land of blondes, the dole, car-be-ques, and family reunification privileges, and he's slavering to go. But can he really find...

Most of the political establishment supports open borders. I don't. I've always been pro-immigrant but I believe that immigration is much too high.

As I've been pointing out for years, a standard way an ambitious coach raises the success level of a college football or basketball program is to dare to scrape the bottom of the behavioral barrel harder than rival coaches when recruiting giant young males. A statistically likely side effect is that more coeds on your... Read More
From the WSJ: Why Basketball Runs in the Family A new WSJ study finds 48.8% of players are related to an elite athlete—that number is 17.5% for the NFL and 14.5% for MLB More than any other professional sport, NBA basketball is a family business.

From my new column in Taki's Magazine: The Mexico Way by Steve Sailer May 25, 2016 Why does Donald Trump dumb down his speeches?

I never understand why "momentum" takes over some Presidential nomination campaigns and doesn't take over other campaigns. Or I guess one Historical Law is that Hillary doesn't generate much momentum.
From Slate, a representative response to another thing that was the Biggest Story in the History of the World for about six hours earlier this week: Breitbart Calls Trump Foe “Renegade Jew.” This Is How Anti-Semitism Goes Mainstream.

One of the more eyebrow-raising examples of media power to control the contents of public thought space is the near disappearance of any recollections of the huge leftist Nuclear Freeze movement of the early Reagan years.

I've mentioned many times that, in my experience growing up in Los Angeles's San Fernando Valley in the 1960s and 1970s, white flight from the public schools was pretty much Jewish flight.

Japan was perhaps the... Read More Update: Here's overhead camera video from WABC-TV of the Hug Thug punching a girl in the face in Times Square earlier this week.

The New York Times has a tool called Chronicle for telling you what percentage of Times article have included a particular word over the centuries. Here we see "racism" in green, "sexism" in black, and "transgender" in blue, all shooting up post 2010: the Establishment having a nervous breakdown.
When I was a freshman in college, I took a course on the American Revolution and French Revolution. One of the main themes was that nationalism hadn't existed before, roughly, the battle of Valmy in 1792 when the French citizen army overwhelmed the invading Prussian professional army.

For many years I've been pointing out the changing interplay of nature and nurture in determining high achievers, such as NFL quarterbacks.
