A letter to the editor featured in the New York Times: Racism in the Housing Market April 23, 2018 To the Editor: In “A ‘Black Tax’ on Housing” (editorial, April 15), you say the reduction of the black homeownership rate to levels not seen since the 1960s when housing discrimination was legal is a reflection...

We are often told that "races" do not exist because Reasons. But lots of things are hard to pin down precisely. For example, "extended families" clearly exist, but how far do they extend? For instance, consider the famous Kennedy family. Are the siblings shown above, Patrick & Katherine Schwarzenegger, members of the Kennedy family? They... Read More
Here's a pretty funny story from biologist Jerry Coyne's blog about affirmative action in Brazil. Around the turn of the century, Brazil introduced racial affirmative action and, not surprisingly, that has led to countless brouhahas over who should qualify for what preference. Brazil's nonstop history of Elizabeth Warren-type controversies over affirmative action brings up the... Read More
Ross Douthat writes in the New York Times: Liberalism’s Golden Dream By Ross Douthat Opinion Columnist April 25, 2018 ... But by coincidence I was in California while I read the Golden State essays, wandering around in Greater Los Angeles with my family, and in the annoying way of pundit-travelers let me make some observations...

Summary of this article from The Atlantic: the word "race" is Bad, but the word "population" is Good. Uh ... Ha
From the New York Times: Now that the New York Times has shone the spotlight on the whiteness of the Fortune 500 names, I am looking forward to the NYT's followup on the Forbes 400 of the Jewishness of the first and/or last names of America's billionaires. They are going to do that analysis, right?
Freeman Dyson is perhaps the last surviving (or at least still active) physicist or mathematician of the Bohr / Feynman / Turing / Zeldovich / Heisenberg generation who were employed to use their huge brains during WWII. As a teenager, he worked as a statistical analyst for the RAF Bomber Command. He assisted an older... Read More
Here's a still from the upcoming sequel to Lars von Trier's golf-centric apocalyptic sci-fi movie Melancholia. This time, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron save the Earth by reforesting golf courses excessively denuded of trees during the ill-considered early 2010s Scottish links fad. Macron and Trump said they first bonded over their mutual disdain for the... Read More

From the New York Times: Maybe what usually holds back regular women from landing the much sought-after superior man (e.g., Mr Darcy) is that, just as with women, there are a lot more regular men? Young women's lives are dominated by intra-sexual competition with other young women to capture the affections of a decent or... Read More
That is one ugly mutt. Can you guess which two breeds dominate her ancestry according to dog genome researchers running the MuttMix survey at the Broad Institute? They've scanned 400 mutts' genomes. Okay ... She's about half Siberian husky, half Dalmatian, and I'm guessing, all trouble, with the neuroticism of a Dalmatian and the workaholism... Read More
A panel discussion Monday afternoon at Harvard on a topic I went over in Taki's Magazine three weeks ago:
One place where White Privilege definitely exists is at the upper pay ranges at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Alabama, which enjoyed a bonanza fiscal year, adding over $120 million to its vast endowment. One of the weirder aspects of the SPLC has long been its adamant refusal to hire any blacks for its... Read More
An actress was arrested last week for helping her female empowerment / multi-level marketing cult leader (male) recruit other female sex slaves for branding. The cult leader, Keith Raniere, who looks kind of like Jeffrey Tambor playing 1977 Steve Jobs, has been at this kind of thing a long time. From Forbes way back in... Read More
The SPLC's 2016 fiscal year started November 1, 2016 and ended October 31, 2017 and it was a doozy. Gifts, grants, contributions, and membership fees jumped from a healthy $50 million in the year leading up to Trump's election to almost $133 million in the 12 months of the Trump Era. As usual, Morris Dees'... Read More
From IOL, a South African website: I bet there are readers on K Street in DC at this moment texting each other: Back to IOL: This is Zuma’s 23rd known child. The two families were believed to be ecstatic and it was reported that Zuma had already paid lobola. ... On September 3, 2013, she... Read More
From Google's Ngram of mentions in books up through 2007 (zero smoothing). The less white privilege exists, the more it gets talked about. In my general impression, white privilege and Jewish privilege are fairly comparable in causes, magnitude, as well as quantity and quality of evidence for their existence. For example, whites tend to make... Read More
I saw Don Giovanni tonight at the Pacific Opera Project. It got me thinking about how long Mozart has until they come for him too as part of #MeToo. On the one hand, he's Mozart. On the other hand, have you ever paid attention to his operas? Beethoven, for example, was scandalized by Mozart's and... Read More
From the Daily Beast: ... At a sold out fundraising dinner for gay Wall Streeters in the lavish Old Stock Exchange building in the heart of Wall Street. Barbra Streisand sang an updated version of "Send in the Clowns" with lyrics addressing what Hillary seemed to see as the most burning issue of the campaign:... Read More
As a person of tallness, I'm struck by how little approbation there is at present toward height prejudice in favor of the tall. Nobody these days gets additional Intersectional Pokemon Points for being short. In Barbara Tuchman's The Proud Tower, she notes that Tory prime minister Lord Salisbury's cabinet of 1895 averaged 6 feet in... Read More
From the Washington Post: "Trayon White" isn't a real name, is it? Sure, it sounds like was made up by Tova Reich just to make her son's life more awkward, but that's what it is. By Peter Jamison April 19 at 9:23 PM Email the author The photo, taken in 1935, depicts a woman in... Read More
Audacious Epigone conjures up a graph of a 2017 Reuters poll on Russia: Threat or Menace? The Jewish sample size is only 63, so take this with a grain of statistical salt. But, yeah, hysteria over Russia is, more than anything else, an old Jewish Democrat thing: Bubbe told me about the Czar and his... Read More
From The Guardian: Do you realize that Beyonce has only won 22 Grammys? Black megalomania can be pretty entertaining, as African dictator Big Men like Idi Amin have demonstrated, but just how seriously do we have to take it?
There are multiple ways to try to answer this question. For example, perhaps some historical figures enjoyed some positive mutation that helped them achieve whatever they did. But from a population geneticist view, you can pretty much divide the world up into Eurasians and sub-Saharan Africans. West Africans and their Bantu Expansion relatives tend to... Read More
From National Geographic: I thought that
In Cuba, 86-year-old Raul Castro has announced the first non-Castro to rule Communist Cuba. Isn't the new Cuban dictator a little ... Russian-looking for a Cuban? Let's see what Wikipedia has to say about Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez: Fidel came to power on January 1, 1959. It took him awhile to ally with the Soviets.... Read More
Last month I posted on a realistically alarmist new book (in French) by Duke professor Stephen Smith, who has made most of his career reporting on Africa for French publications: Now French supremo Emmanuel Macron has given an interview recommending Smith's book on what Macron calls (in translation) Africa's "bombshell" population growth. Meanwhile, however, the... Read More
And an oldie but goodie:
From the Washington Post: When you use the phrase "white spaces," aren't you supposed to also say "black bodies?" By Karen Attiah Karen Attiah is The Post’s global opinions editor. ... What the Starbucks incident has in common with the lynchings of the past — as well as the police brutality and mass incarceration of... Read More
Department of Mom Couldn't You Have Named Your Book Something Else? For Me? For Once? My wife is reading it and says it's quite good. But this helps explain why the younger Reich doesn't want to touch the whole Jewish thing in his DNA research: He feels free to shine the harsh light of DNA... Read More
From the Jewish Telegraph Agency: Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory attacks Starbucks for including ADL in bias trainings April 18, 2018 11:00am (JTA) — A Women’s March leader mired in controversy because of her association with the virulently anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has attacked Starbucks for including the Anti-Defamation League among its...

From the Los Angeles Times: California plan linking new housing to public transit rejected by state lawmakers By LIAM DILLON APR 17, 2018 | 6:40 PM | SACRAMENTO A robust effort to attack California's housing shortage was rejected Tuesday by a state legislative panel at the Capitol, felled in part by opponents who argued that...

From the New York Times: According to the Theory of Intersectionality, your lack of privilege points are the sum, or perhaps product (Intersectional theorists aren't really into math), of all the Marginalized boxes you can check. Is "Harvard student" one of those deprived boxes? Apparently so. Back in medieval times, there were constant gown vs.... Read More
One thing you can pick up reading between the lines in paleogeneticist David "Aryan Conquests Were True" Reich's Who We Are is that he has some issues, family issues, concerning his own personal ancestry. This is only natural because he is researching, in effect, family trees, and everybody's own family has a treeful of issues.... Read More
Almost Missouri comments:
From The New Yorker: The Silently Regressive Politics of “A Quiet Place” By Richard Brody April 10, 2018 The success of “A Quiet Place,” the new horror thriller directed by John Krasinski, is a sign of viewers craving emptiness, of a yearning for some cinematic white noise to drown out troubling thoughts and observations with...

From Slate: As I've been saying since 1988 when a white real estate developer encouraged me to move to Chicago's Cabrini Green district to get in on the coming gentrification bonanza as the all black housing project was torn down and replaced with upscale condos more in line with its superlative location only a 20...

Is there a sense in which South Asians, with their obsession with caste, value diversity for the sake of diversity more than do Europeans? There's a sense in which "Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains," "All men are created equal" or "Workers of the world, unite!" are extremely European ideas. Down... Read More
From the New York Times editorial board: It's a white house surrounded by white picket fences. And it has a red roof to show it's been redlined. And then everybody realized that FDR's redlining had been irrational so black neighborhoods boomed in value as the whole world woke up from their racist miasma and realized... Read More
From the New York Times: Why America’s Black Mothers and Babies Are in a Life-or-Death Crisis The answer to the disparity in death rates has everything to do with the lived experience of being a black woman in America.

From the New York Times: To see why Powell's speech still elicits so much hate, just read the opening paragraphs: The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature. One

So, what do you think?
In the Wall Street Journal, heavyweight paleoanthropologist John Hawks reviews David Reich's Who We Are: Thus, my latest Taki's Magazine column is entitled "Ghosts of Africa." By the way, is the West African figure really "up to half"? I thought the latest estimate for Yorubans was eight percent. Half would be immense. Update: Okay, Reich... Read More
In Canada, Native Americans are called First Nations. But what if American Indians were neither native to the New World nor first?

Not such a fine sight to see: * One of my commenters has mentioned how his hometown, Prescott, AZ, has recently filled up with drug treatment clinics and their clients.
