Here's a story from across the pond, a story about negrolatry. Don't reach for your dictionary; I just made that word up. And yes, to you pedants: I mixed Latin and Greek together. So sue me. You get the idea, anyway. Here I'm working the late Larry Auster's theme that to guilty white liberals, blacks... Read More
Culture of critique by a Black enricher
Seeing, Saying and Pseudotopia
It seems such an obvious truth: In regione caecorum rex est luscus — “In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.” But the English writer H.G. Wells turned the proverb on its head in his short-story “The Country of the Blind” (1904), one of the cleverest and most profound ever written. Wells’... Read More

Media claim white men are the problem; the facts say otherwise. The Second Amendment is under siege. In the New York Times, retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens urged its repeal. A national survey conducted by The Economist and YouGov found 21 percent of Americans support repealing the Second Amendment. Not surprisingly, support varies... Read More
It’s the blecks (1): Guns. My biggest email bag of the month came after I hypothesized, in the March 23rd Radio Derb, that the enthusiasm white Americans display for owning guns, unusualamong Western nations, is connected to the other distinctive thing about our country: the presence in it, from the beginning, of a large black...

Amy Wax, a tenured Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania is now being subjected to a SECOND Two Minutes Hate by our Emerging Totalitarian Left. I should say—having some slight acquaintance with the lady—that Professor Wax is a formidable person to take on in combat, not only intellectually but also in personality. I... Read More
I got a smile or two out of this March 14th piece in Scientific American, title: Why Are White Men Stockpiling Guns? Subtitle: “Research suggests it’s largely because they’re anxious about their ability to protect their families, insecure about their place in the job market and beset by racial fears.” [By Jeremy Adam Smith,March 14,...

A fictional answer to whites’ real-world success
James Baldwin, perhaps the most influential black literary figure of the last century, confessed in Notes of a Native Son that blacks feel alienated and inferior no matter where they travel in the modern world. Each black person, he mourned, is but a “stranger in their village,” a global village shaped by others—especially by whites.... Read More
Black Panther will be a monster hit at the box office in its opening weekend [‘Black Panther’ Heading Toward Massive $170 Million-Plus Opening, by Dave McNary, Variety, February 12, 2018]. My guess is it will surpass $200 million, as black identity and Main Stream Media cheerleading are creating a formidable marketing combination [Black Panther: does... Read More

Is President Trump a racist? If an impartial trial were held today, the President could certainly muster a formidable defense. After all, under his administration black unemployment is at an all time low, his re-industrialization policy is perfectly suited to provide even more jobs for African Americans and trillions spent on rebuilding our infrastructure will...

The Philadelphia Eagles meet the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday (February 4). But, 52 years after it began, this may be the last time the Super Bowl commands American football fans’ undivided attention—because America itself is dividing.

Kimani Paul-Emile is a light-skinned black woman who teaches law at Fordham Law School.

President Trump’s alleged comments about not wanting immigrants from “sh*thole” countries like Haiti caused hyperventilation in the Main Stream Media: No Leftist reporters want Americans knowing about the reality of life in the Third World that these immigrants will bring with them. Right on cue, America is about to get a dose of lying fantasy... Read More
In the dog hours after two a.m., the empty time when the streets are dark and lifeless, a police car is an alien bubble, a small moving world unconnected with the streets, not part of the neighborhood.

Today’s America is a world of solutions and it is almost un-American to even hint that our most pressing problems are intractable and must be endured as one might suffer terrible weather.

The Extraordinary Case of Macklin Fleming and Affirmative Action
I recently got to meet social psychologist Lee Jussim [Email him] of Rutgers University. Back in 2001 I had reviewed a book Dr. Jussim had written in collaboration with two other scholars, book title Stereotype Accuracy: Toward Appreciating Group Differences. My review was titled “Stereotypes Aren’t So Bad,” which is more or less the message... Read More

Genuflecting is in the news—football players, mainly black ones, “taking a knee” during pre-game playing of the National Anthem. The most recent example, from this Sunday: teams kneeling before the anthem, and being booed anyway–NFL fans booed players for kneeling before national anthem and standing for it | NFL players tried to show support for...

Last Sunday, a horrific mass shooting unfolded in Antioch, TN while the national media was consumed with covering the NFL protests and Hurricane Maria’s aftermath. Emanuel Kidega Samson, a 25-year-old Sudanese refugee from Murfreesboro, entered the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in nearby Antioch, TN and gunned down 7 people. He shot Melanie Crow Smith...

Tucker Carlson and his guest Dan Bongino raised what you might call a look-away issue: Looting. As the two looked on at footage of looters in post-Irma Florida, TV talker and guest volunteered that "this" was "not about race." "This," presumably, being a reference to the looting. Here was one of those, "Who are you... Read More

Decades from now experts will surely debate today’s Summer of Monumental Hysteria. After all, by all objective criteria—assuming, of course, that anything can be objective if it involves race—it should not have happened. How many Americans really can correctly identify Robert E. Lee, let alone Roger B. Taney? (According to one recent survey, half the... Read More
Free speech is not doing particularly well on today’s college campuses. The good news is that resistance to the little commissars is mobilizing; the bad news is that this “resistance” consists almost entirely of abstract scholarly essays or grandiloquent soapbox speeches (see here, for example). Indeed, these pontifications have reached industrial scale proportions and scarcely... Read More

Here’s a dictum I have read now and again on the internet: “an organization that isn’t explicitly anti-Left will eventually be swallowed up by the Left.” Here’s another I am making up on the fly (although I am sure others have said it many times before): “an organization that isn’t explicitly anti-nonwhite will eventually be...

Hip Hop, Existentialist Theology, and the WASP Cult of the Other
Introduction Hip-hop is another cultural artefact attracting the attention of Christians working with young people. Back in January, at the five-day intensive university course for Youth Culture and Ministry, Andrew Root, a professor of youth ministry from Luther Seminary in Minneapolis, devoted an afternoon session to the subject. His very effective audio-visual presentation reflected what... Read More
Curiously, what made me give up all interest in the problems of blacks was not their virulent racism, their horrendous rates of crime, or their parasitism. Instead it was the assaults by blacks and their fellow travelers on Confederate monuments, particularly in New Orleans. Similarly, the banning of the Confederate battle flag at Gettysburg, for...

[In 1963, historian Howard Zinn was fired from Spelman College, where he was chair of the History Department, because of his civil rights activities.

When I saw the Lügenpresse was driving the news cycle with Trump’s tweets about ‘civil rights icon’ John Lewis this morning, I felt like I had to do something. I’m sick and tired of John Lewis parachuting into my state for his annual photo ops. So, I got in my truck and drove over to... Read More
TWO PIMPS IN A POD Boy, have whites done hard time under Barack Hussein Obama! To deliver his inauguration benediction, eight accursed years back, Obama commissioned one Rev. Joseph Lowery. Lowery is to poetry what Beyoncé is to music. Both were greatly elevated by the outgoing, déclassé first couple. Lowery’s anti-white inaugural jingle beseeched the... Read More

In my opinion, all political campaigns are identity based. Shaking the money tree to the tune of $1 billion + it now takes to run a national campaign demands access to big money, deference to capital, and a willingness to promote political loyalties on the basis of identity, not class. George Soros is not going... Read More
At a concert in California, Kanye West told the crowd that "he hadn't voted...but if he had he would have voted for Trump." West is a media provocateur and his utterances are primarily a useful indicator of what is most likely to push people's buttons. But he's not the only outlier. The anti-Trump forces have... Read More

As the troubled Obama presidency winds down, the inevitable question is why so many people, including a few smart ones were so easily fooled. How did a man with such a fine pedigree—Columbia, Harvard—who sounded so brilliant pursue such political capital wasting and foolish policies as forcing schools to discipline students by racial quotas? Or... Read More

Why Stand for a Country That Can Gun You Down in Cold Blood?
If black athletes in the NFL honestly think that African Americans who live under Old Glory are as ‘equally protected ‘as whites, then they should stand up during the national anthem and sing-along. But if they know that blacks aren’t getting a square deal, and that blacks can be gunned down at any time by... Read More

Hillary Clinton’s “deplorable” speech has yet again raised the issue of whether countless white Americans are “racists.” Of course, given the term’s inherently fuzzy quality, who can authoritatively say for sure? But, imprecision acknowledged, it is important to scrutinize how the liberal media elite has expertly twisted racism to demonize millions of whites who (correctly)... Read More

Among the many factors that contribute to death is one that is scarcely noticed: a deadly self-conception. The classic example is the person who defines himself as a fearsome, brave warrior anxious to risk everything—including almost certain death—for personal glory. The pursuit of pleasure can also be self-destructive. For example, in the 1970s and 80’s... Read More
Detroit Gas Station, 2011
I had spent four days in Ann Arbor, Dexter and Chelsea. This stay allowed me to experience a whiter and more Norman Rockwell Michigan.

Micah Johnson, Josh Marshall, and Charles Pierce
I normally keep my head down on the Internet but recently I’ve been a near-troll-y jerk on the subject of what I see as inaccurate/misleading liberal media presentation of Trump statements on anti-Semitism and racism. Long story short, I think Trump has the white racist bloc sewn up and he doesn’t need to dogwhistle it.... Read More

Just you wait. In the fullness of time, Donald J. Trump will be blamed for “creating the atmosphere” that led to the Texas cop massacre of July 7. However, at least by the same standards applied to Mr. Trump, Barrack Hussein Obama should be fingered for encouraging Micah Xavier Johnson to “shoot a dozen Dallas... Read More

Living as a white guy in America after having grown up elsewhere, I must say, I don’t see much ill-will towards blacks among my fellow whites. There are traces of it, I know; I read the comment threads. The vast majority of white Americans, however, wish no harm to blacks, nor any restriction of their... Read More
Philly Jesus and Black Israelites, 2016
Philly is blessed with a generous allotment of public space at its very center. On any day of the week, weather permitting, there are throngs of people at LovePark, DillworthPark and near the Clothespin.

I recommend Sandernistas read Joy Reid’s Fracture for an understanding of some of the passion and vitriol pervading the Democratic primaries.

How Can We Prevent Future Dylann Roofs?
Very soon after Dylann Roof murdered nine blacks in Charleston, it became clear to me that the nation was reacting in ways that would make similar killings more likely.

Not so fast, Rachel Dolezal. The country is not finished with you yet. It merely got distracted.

Not one “White Lives Matter” march was held. (And as... Read More
