From The Guardian: I suspect that understates white male dominance by counting each artist with at least one painting in the collection. But if you counted paintings in the permanent collections that are currently hanging on the walls of major museums, perhaps, say, 95% were painted by white men. For example, if I Google Metropolitan... Read More
From the New York Times 31 years ago: Ethnic Quota For Nigerians Is Challenged By JAMES BROOKE and SPECIAL TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, NOV. 6, 1988 At the age of 11, Adeyinka Badejo is learning the hard way about affirmative action, Nigerian style. The daughter of an eminent political science professor here, Miss Badejo... Read More
[Insert seamen/submarine joke here.] From the Washington Post: And that, children, is how Mark Zuckerberg became a billionaire. Good night. At the time, the submarine employed 32 women in its 173-person crew. The lists — which Military.com characterizes as “rape lists” — were described as ranking “females by appearances, characteristics and variou
If you are "passionate about social justice issues," you may well be not quite smart enough to pass the bar exam and therefore wind up stuck with $200k in law school loans but no career. Fortunately for the Law School Admission Council, luring marginal minds into going to law school is NOT a social justice... Read More
From the PR department of the University of New South Wales, Sydney a few years ago: Note: If you are in Australia, don't cast aspersions on the Aboriginality of these Indigenes or you can get Bolted.
Gasoline costs a lot in California. For example, the cash-only price at the Sherman Oaks Arco station (a discount brand) is currently $4.10 per gallon. Some of that is environmental regulations, some of that is high real estate prices. But some of the California Premium seems to be that gas prices out here go up... Read More
From the Daily Mail: Hmmhmmmh ... Does that remind you of anybody in the news? [Note: Don't take legal advice from the Daily Mail.] Evidently, so few white people cheat that it's been allowed to remain a legal gray area for 50 years. I explored the remarkable aspects of the "affirmative action honor system" in... Read More
From The Verge: The AI Now Institute? Yawn ... They need a punchier name like the AIpocalypse Now Institute. said in a report released today, raising key questions about the direction of the field. Women and people of color are deeply underrepresented, the report found, noting studies finding that about 80 percent of AI professors... Read More
From the New York Times: ‘They Were Conned’: How Reckless Loans Devastated a Generation of Taxi Drivers By Brian M. Rosenthal May 19, 2019 “They were conned”: Thousands of immigrant taxi drivers were trapped in exploitative loans by bankers who made huge profits. The drivers, chasing the dream of owning a New York taxi medallion,... Read More
You could write a computer program to generate these headlines: just take a noun that has positive connotations and then add "too white?" at the end. Is recycling too white? Is being concerned about climate change too white? Etcetera Etcetera
iSteve commenter Triumph104 notes something interesting: Arizona State is a vast school with 42,000 undergrads (it amusingly comes up in the Rick Singer scandal as the place parents are trying to keep their kids out of), but it's serious about college golf (e.g., Phil Mickelson won 3 NCAA individual titles there -- but Phil employed...

At least four top Department of Education executives who have been demoted or stripped of duties... Read More

From the New York Times opinion page: Well those demonstrators certainly got things done in Chicago in 2016, as measured in incremental numbers of dead bodies of blacks murdered by other blacks. The total number of homicides in Chicago increased from 512 in 2015 to 808 in 2016. When did we hear the name of... Read More
From CNN: West Point is about to graduate its largest class of black women By Tony Marco, CNN Updated 7:29 PM ET, Wed May 15, 2019 (CNN) Thirty-four black women are expected to graduate from West Point next week. That will be the largest class of African-American women to graduate together in the military academy's... Read More
From the New York Times sports page: Well, Tiger's bid for the 2019 Grand Slam, which would have been the most astonishing feat in the history of sports if it happened, only lasted two rounds of 72-73, while Brooks Koepka, who has quietly become an astonishing golfer, shot 63-65 in the PGA Championship at Bethpage...

From the New York Times news section: That's quite a line-up. In other words, they are looking for a magic way to continue to impose racial preferences without preferring race, just by obvious proxies for race. You know, in case the Supreme Court starts to notice that pesky bit in the 14th Amendment about "equal... Read More
ESPN has an extremely long article on the decline of batting average as the key baseball statistic and the concomitant decline of batting averages. Batting average -- basehits divided by at-bats (with walks not being counted as either hits or at-bats) was the premiere baseball statistic until the late 20th Century. The highest batting average...

From the Associated Press wire service: But also funny So keep in mind: Sex and race don't exist. Except when they do. Confused? Well, just remember: Whatever happens, We have got The White Man's Guilt, And the Other have not. “The point is not what’s happened to this particular individual but this is an example... Read More
From Steve Hsu's blog, an hour long podcast conversation with his old friend Ron Unz.
I'm starting to think we should rename "the homeless" as "urban campers." It used to be that, outside of, say, Santa Monica, the homeless tended to be pathetic lunatics who belonged in asylums. But more and more I see people who appear to have rationally chosen the no-rent sidewalk lifestyle following a visit to the... Read More
From the Los Angeles Times opinion page: Don't just give money to your college of choice, donate some free speech backbone By DANIEL AKST MAY 15, 2019 | 3:05 AM A specter is haunting American college campuses — the specter of social justice hysteria. ... Some brave souls have begun to push back. But only... Read More
iSteve commenter Hapalong Cassidy writes: I immediately ginned up a theory for HC's observation, assuming it's true: For boys, younger brothers are slightly more likely to be homosexual than older brothers, perhaps for biochemical reasons: It's not an easy feat for a woman to give birth to a baby with the opposite sex's hormones, and...

From a new paper: It's not clear if left-handers tend to be overall better fighters or if they just enjoy an advantage from being in the minority and thus their opponents are less familiar with their style of fight
From the New York Times: If integration is the goal and integration is defined as going to school at a school that is at least 10% white, then the big problem is that America is running out of white children. Liberal States Suffer Some of the Most Severe Segregation White students now account for less... Read More
Serial killers have been around in small numbers for a long time, but they appeared to explode in numbers over the course of The Sixties. The good news is that they seem to be down somewhat in this century. Interestingly, serial killing appears to have been closely correlated with the general homicide rate, while mass... Read More
From the New York Times, an amusing confirmation of my latest Taki's Magazine column on "Flight From White." Literally, Chuck is saying white men voting is "a flagrant display of a white male exertion of power, authority and privilege." Why do those horrible white males suffer the delusion that anybody intends to do them harm... Read More
From the New York Times: The USA's College Board is introducing an Adversity Score that's like a mirror image of China's new Social Credit score: but in America, the more your family is messed up, the more points you score! Remember, we always get more of what we measure and incentivize. So, if we reward... Read More
Births surged during the immigration/housing bubble of the Bush years, especially among unmarried Mexican immigrants, then fell sharply during the Great Recession. Births rose slightly in 2014, seemingly due to economic better times, but have fallen ever since. Despite the strong economy, the total fertility rate (estimated births per woman per lifetime) dropped 2% in... Read More
From CNN: Uh ... doesn't this raise questions about the thoroughness of U.S. immigration background checks and the ease with which people with controversial past (such as being Somali war criminals) can get appro
From the New York Times: Trump Immigration Plan Emphasizes Immigrants’ Skills Over Family Ties Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, spent months working on the plan, which will be a central part of Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign message. By Michael D. Shear, May 15, 2019 WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday will unveil... Read More
The influence of birth order (are you the oldest of your siblings, the youngest, the middle child or whatever?) is widely interesting to the public. For example, when I was a child in the 1960s, my being an only child was a subject of widespread envy among other children. Everybody had a theory about how... Read More
The history of the human race is full of great men. We used to be thankful, but now, increasingly, people are resentful because they were men, and mostly white. That's problematic these days. So, what different kind of coping strategies will we see? Let's walk through several examples that have emerged over the years. James... Read More
iSteve commenter Piltdown Man notes the onrushing disappearance of the name "Lynch" from the American landscape: No comment was available from running back Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch. Argentine novelist Benito Lynch (1888-1951) commented, "I'm doomed, right? My name will never be safe to mention in America again." Argentine Communist revolutionary Er
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Flight From White by Steve Sailer May 15, 2019 James Holzhauer has won 22 straight games on Jeopardy! Meanwhile, baseball slugger Christian Yelich is leading the National League with 16 homers. What do they have in common besides being young men enjoying vintage 2019s? For one thing, Holzhauer,...

Coming soon: "A Theory of Justice: The Musical." This could be the next "Hamilton"-sized Broadway smash, assuming that John Rawls, the ex-Episcopalian philosopher of social democracy, is played as a rapping black guy. $900 tickets, here we come! But if I had to choose from behind Rawls' Veil of Ignorance, would I choose to be... Read More
From the New York Times, a good piece explaining the often nonobivous reasons that racial ancestry is a big deal in blood transfusions: The Intersection of Race and Blood Blood can be racially or ethnically specific, so having more blood donors in certain groups can be crucial for saving the lives of patients who share...

From the Los Angeles Times last week: 4 smiling teachers posed with a noose. Now they’re on leave, along with the principal By COLLEEN SHALBY MAY 10, 2019 | 1:30 PM Four teachers and a principal have been placed on leave after a photo of the educators posing with what appears to be a noose...

From The Guardian: Mette Frederiksen: the anti-migrant left leader set to win power in Denmark Social Democrats are election frontrunners but critics say their leader has dragged the party sharply to the right Richard Orange Copenhagen Sat 11 May 2019 ... Mette Frederiksen, leader of Denmark’s opposition Social Democrats, was in hospital with food poisoning... Read More
Let's not start a war with Iran.
Doris Day is dead at 97.
Here's a fascinating 1946 cartoon co-written by anthropologist Ruth Benedict, Margaret Mead's pal, for Walter Reuther's United Autoworker Union. Adam at 3:47 is definitely a Chad (Chadam?), not a Virgin. I like the Rushtonian ensuing part about how most humans are some kind of medium brown but three populations on the edge of the world's... Read More
The concept of diminishing marginal returns suggests that it makes sense to pursue policies that sound like a good idea only in moderation: if you do X and it seems to succeed, then maybe doing Y is a good idea, but Z probably is not at all a good idea. But in the real world,... Read More
Dear Amy Harmon: I suspect that the awful James D. Watson is another one of these crackpot extremists who believes that Shakespeare's plays were most likely written by Shakespeare instead of by a Jewish woman named Emilia Bassano. Can't the New York Times do even more to humiliate Watson? For example, why is Watson even... Read More
For a long time I've been pointing out that a lot of the bad blood in the human sciences traces to a little-remarked but natural rivalry between the two heavyweight champion ethnicities of the intellectual world: Askhenazis versus Anglo-Americans. What Einstein is to Jews, the Darwin-Galton-Fisher tradition ought to be to WASPs. Therefore, ethnocentrists such... Read More

On Saturday, Matthew Boling ran a 10.13 in the Texas high school state final 100 meter dash with a legal helping wind of 1.3 meters/second. (2.0 m/s is the maximum for a legal time.) A couple of weeks ago he ran his now famous 9.98 with more than three times as much wind behind him.... Read More
To help understand the latest Becky Bashing in which a non-black woman riding on the DC Metro had distribution of her upcoming novel yanked because she dared to Police a Black Body by reporting a black female Metro employee for violating a Metro rule, here's an article from the Washington Times in 2012 on why...

I rather like our current World's Richest Man, Jeff Bezos, but I like ribbing him even more. It seems as if it ought to come with the territory: if you have a $100 billion dollars, people make fun of you.
