Woke Twitter's leading avenger, Titania McGrath, is no more.
2018 has been a big year in genetics. One of the more interesting findings that has been slowly emerging in recent years is, just as Eurasians tend to have genetic contributions from extinct Neanderthals and Denisovans, sub-Saharan Africans seem to have their own admixture from a different archaic population. The two present day African populations... Read More
With a young researcher named Noah Carl being denounced by hundreds of academics demanding his firing for noticing, among other hatestats, the correlation in British elections between the number of allegations of electoral fraud in a district, the rate of cousin marriage in a district (which tends to be a proxy for enforced arranged marriages...

From The Guardian: Cambridge gives role to academic accused of racist stereotyping University professors among hundreds who object to award of research job to Noah Carl Richard Adams Education editor Fri 7 Dec 2018 University of Cambridge professors and academics from around the world have criticised the appointment of a social scientist whose work they...

From the Washington Post: In France and online, extremists put centrism to the torch By Max Boot, Columnist, December 8 at 12:25 PM Weekend after weekend, French President Emmanuel Macron is dealing with sometimes violent protests from a populist movement known as the gilets jaunes (yellow vests). The protesters were galvanized by a plan to... Read More
Here's a graph of the number of homicides (blue line, left axis) in the U.S. from 2011 to 2018 (with 2018 projected by Jeff Asher in the NYT) versus the number of articles (red line, right axis) in the New York Times that included the phrase "Black Lives Matter" (2018 projected by simple extrapolation). The... Read More
December is one of the three months of the year (along with April and August) when I hassle you for donations. I sometimes find myself discouraged, but then my loyal readers chip in with cash in its manifold forms, which I find highly encouraging. Say not the struggle nought availeth. Thanks to everybody who has... Read More
Ötzi the Iceman looks like a cross between Christoph Waltz and Nick Nolte. But wasn't he pre-Yamnaya/Aryan invasion of Europe? Wouldn't he look more Sardinian, like Bruno Kirby?
The reason dogs are obsessed with sniffing ad marking trees is because wolf packs are surprisingly good at observing borders. Commenter Sean observes: I presume humans bred howling out of dogs because it interferes with sleep?
The first 95 seconds of this clip aren't too entertaining, but the last 5 seconds are great. A commenter points out: Actresses ... I'm reminded of the one really good scene in J.J. Abrams' 2012 Spielberg-tribute movie Super Eight about some 13 year old boys making a zombie movie in 1979. They draft a classmate... Read More
And now the Washington Post weighs in: See, Beto didn't do a DNA test to claim he's minority, he's just an Irish-looking guy with a vaguely Spanish nickname. Sure, if he were Paddy O'Rourke he'd be merely an El Paso city councilman, but he's Beto O'Rourke, so he's Presidential Timber. ... Since Hillary Clinton’s defeat... Read More
From the New York Times: You are not supposed to say "Far East" anymore? I see that the NYT has printed 3 other articles this month containing the suddenly inappropriate "Far East." What about "Middle East?" The New York Times has published 14 articles today alone containing the presumably problematic term "Middle East." Isn't it... Read More
From Variety (with some pictures I added): But ... That a few individuals' faces are worthy of being projected 40 feet high while millions of people with less glamorous faces sit in the dark, eat popcorn, and admire them? No! That's totally wrong. You see, Owen Gleiberman knows exactly what movies are about: The shoes

It's always fun to milk another post out of Senator Warren's DNA test. From the New York Times: Elizabeth Warren Stands by DNA Test. But Around Her, Worries Abound. By Astead W. Herndon, Dec. 6, 2018 WASHINGTON — The plan was straightforward: After years of being challenged by President Trump and others about a decades-old... Read More
Another data point on the eternal question of who is on top of the Progressive Stack ... From the New York Times:
Black Panther is an above average comic book movie, and I haven't seen the James Baldwin Beale Street movie, but Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman is groaningly bad. The Golden Globes also gave BlacKkKlansman a Best Director nomination to Spike Lee, a Best Actor nomination to Denzel Washington's son John David Washington, who is just amateurish, and... Read More
This graph of male homicide rates, in which the top 3 lines are for blacks and the bottom 3 for whites (which includes a lot of Hispanics), vividly shows the impact of the arrival of crack cocaine in the late 1980s. Note, however, that the upper green line -- the homicide rate among black men... Read More
From the New York Times: I.e., big cities are blacker and blacks commit the majority of murders, so trends tend to hit them harder. ... If these big cities end the year down about 7 percent from 2017, and if big cities tend to overstate the national trend by about 2.4 percentage points on
From The Forward: Is A String Of Attacks Against Brooklyn Jews Really About Anti-Semitism? Ari Feldman, December 5, 2018 ... Jews are being targeted, say residents of these communities, by members of non-white ethnic groups who see Jews as symbols of gentrification in their neighborhoods. “It’s less of an anti-Semitic thing than they needed a...

Ross Douthat writes in his NYT column: Why We Miss the WASPs Their more meritocratic, diverse and secular successors rule us neither as wisely nor as well. Ross Douthat, Dec. 5, 2018 Put simply, Americans miss Bush because we miss the WASPs — because we feel, at some level, that their more meritocratic and diverse... Read More
From the New York Times: Women often do better than men at extreme ocean swimming, such as Lynne Cox being the first to swim the 53-mile-wide Bering Strait: If you had a "race" where the winner was simply the last person to die, i.e., a tontine, most of the winners would be women. On the... Read More
In a comment about my new Taki's column "State of the Art," iSteve commenter Mr. Anon observes: This has happened spectacularly in the visual art world. For example, physicist A.L. Barabasi writes in his new book The Formula: ... Consider Rembrandt's Man with the Golden Helmet, which, up until the mid-eighties, attracted droves of art... Read More
I’m interested in what makes these late onset male to female trans folks so appealing to progressives when it seems obvious to me that, say, 80% of them are rightwingers. In contrast, you almost never hear of, say, a liberal NPR anchorman announcing in his unassertive indoor voice that he's now an anchorwoman. Granted, almost... Read More
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing there.
The current Prime Minister of Pakistan is the cricket star Imran Khan. He's an upper class member of the Pashtun tribe of western Pakistan and Afghanistan. At 6'2", he's a half foot taller than look-alike movie star Mark Wahlberg.
From the NYT Opinion page: The trans folk are going to be mad.
From BWOG, Columbia Student News: Nimesh Patel Stand-Up Routine Cut Short Due To Uncomfortable Jokes Written by SARAH BRANER November 30, 201811:36 pmimg 7 Comments Nimesh Patel, a comedian known for being the first Indian-American writer for Saturday Night Live, had his stand-up routine at cultureSHOCK cut short earlier tonight due to uncomfortable jokes. cultureSHOCK,...

Outside of movies and alcohol, you don't hear of much from Mexico in the way of products or brands. But a blonde lady artist in Mexico, Amparin Serrano, has built an impressive new doll brand, Distroller, by coming up with an ultra girly doll experience for little girls that is intended to make them even... Read More
From the Los Angeles Times: What about "Hispanx?" Corporations should sponsor these new words. The Spanx brand would likely pony up some serious cash to make "HiSpanx" the mandatory word for Latinas at colleges across America. Heterosexual African American men could be renamed Under Armour-Americans in return for a hefty annual retainer.
"Getting to Denmark" is a phrase coined by political philosopher Francis Fukuyama to denote a good goal for most countries around the world: becoming a stable, nice End of History country like Denmark. But as I have often pointed out, history hasn't ended in Denmark, which in the 21st Century has taken the lead, since... Read More
In The Atlantic, Franklin Foer explains that nostalgia for George H.W. Bush is anti-Semitic: Maybe the new elites should try a little noblesse oblige? And what could be more anti-Semitic than that? When George H. W. Bush passed, so did the last true wasp. In appearance, he embodied what The New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley... Read More
From The Guardian:
From the New York Times: Because that's perfectly logical. the nine undergraduate colleges that make up the University of California are prohibited by state law from even considering the race or ethnicity of applicants. California has banned affirmative action in colleges and universities s
From the Washington Post: On the other hand, neighborhood crime rates have nothing to do with neighborhood home prices. They just don't. As the authors of a new Brookings Institution-Gallup study note, Zillow data shows that the median listing price of a home in a majority-black neighborhood in a major metro area is around $184,000,...

George H.W. Bush was president during a tumultuous and triumphant era for American foreign policy. His reign didn't last long but it set a number of precedents that his successor Bill Clinton mostly followed. My impression is that Bush didn't come to the Oval Office with too many long range plans, but instead simply had... Read More
But from the Daily Mail today: Dyslexia and swastikas seem to go together.
My favorite story about George Bush the elder is how on the White House tennis court, he would fire himself up when serving by shouting "Unleash Chang!" which, I believe, combined the old 1950s GOP slogan "Unleash Chiang" Kai-shek with the diminutive 1987 French Open champion baseliner Michael Chang. This clever joke became a lost-in-the-fog... Read More
From MIT Technology Review: In the future, no child will be left behind without the Harvard grad glibness & self-confidence gene, as seen in this "A Private Universe" video of Harvard grads and local blue collar
From the New York Times: Louisiana School Made Headlines for Sending Black Kids to Elite Colleges. Here’s the Reality. T.M. Landry, a school in small-town Louisiana, has garnered national attention for vaulting its underprivileged black students to elite colleges. But the school cut corners and doctored college applications. By Erica L. Green and Katie Benner,... Read More
I scored a 5, which ranks me as More Privileged than 93% of you knaves and villains, which means 13 out of 14 of you are entitled to punch me up.
Extremely anti-Trump bastions such as Park Slope Reform synagogues, the womyn's dorm at the New School for Social Research, and the Teachers College at Columbia seem to collect anti-Semitic graffiti. From the New York Times: The swastikas were at least swastika shaped rather than cactus shaped and not dyslexic, although they weren't tilted 45 degrees... Read More
An anonymous commenter put together these 3 screenshots (which I've checked and are legit) of the auto-complete prompts you get on 3 big search engines when you type in "deaths from op": I don't really get why Google does this kind of thing. One reason they do this is because they can and almost nobody... Read More
You hear a lot about White Privilege and White Flight, but when you look at the mortality figures lately, it looks more like White Plight. From AFP:
A lot of things are accused of being racist these days. Tucker Carlson's new book Ship of Fools, which I reviewed in Taki's Magazine, lists, among much else, ice cream truck songs, Halloween costumes, Milk, Dr. Seuss books, tanning, science, Shakespeare, Bitcoin, Wendy's, pornography, Lucky Charms cereal, being on time, white babies, the Oscars, arth...

From the Washington Post: Tucker Carlson, the Daily Stormer’s favorite By Erik Wemple, Media critic November 29 at 1:58 PM Research cited by BuzzFeed finds that Fox News host Tucker Carlson is the most favored commentator on Andrew Anglin’s vile, racist website, the Daily Stormer. ... The analysis marks a vindication of Carlson’s apparent programming... Read More
Ever since the Starbucks Bathroom Crisis earlier this year, the MSM has been flooded with major news articles about incidents in which a white woman looks suspiciously upon a black man. Here's a new one, from People: But at least Becky apparently didn't actually call the police herself on the black man. If this were... Read More
From the New York Times opinion page, with an amusingly Orwellian headline: So, tweeting "Bruce Jenner fathered six children, including Kendall and Kylie Jenner, after being the most celebrated male athlete at the 1976 Summer Olympics" is now Hate Speech on Twitter. ... To trans people, it represented a recognition that our identity is an... Read More
From my book review in Taki's Magazine: Tucker’s Treatise by Steve Sailer, November 28, 2018 Shortly after this month’s election, an Antifa mob descended upon the Washington, D.C., home of Fox News personality Tucker Carlson, his wife, and their four children, chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.” Why... Read More

The evidence is clear — but often ignored
What Was John McCain's True Wartime Record in Vietnam?
Hundreds of POWs may have been left to die in Vietnam, abandoned by their government—and our media.
