[preface]Some may be aware that when I originally established The Unz Review over four years ago one of my main motives was to have a convenient venue for my own writing, a situation necessitated by my removal as Publisher of The American Conservative. However, other matters intervened, and all but a few months of my... Read More
“Affirmative action” means hiring people because they can’t do the job well. Near-synonyms are “diversity,” meaning groups that cannot do the job well, and “inclusiveness,” which means seeking people who you know cannot do the job well. These underpin American society, and have ruined education. For some time the sciences seemed less susceptible to the... Read More

On Virginia Dare’s 430th birthday last August 18, I wrote #DareToCelebrate Virginia Dare’s Birthday! Will Her Statue Be Torn Down Next—Along With America? Right on cue, the Washington Post on Thursday morning carried How a child born more than 400 years ago became a symbol of white nationalism, subhead "Virginia Dare and the myth of... Read More

Recently, I reported that Leftist journalist-enforcers had discovered an annual academic conference on subjects like genetic racial differences in intelligence had taken place, almost clandestinely, at the prestigious University College of London for four years without the SJW mob or even the university knowing about it. The usual moral panic ensued. James Thompson, the lecturer... Read More
Putting minorities’ feelings first kills creativity.
Few television programs have had the cultural impact of The Simpsons. Reporters now use the show as an inspiration for headlines. “’Free Market’” Conservatives Welcome Their New Protectionist Overlord, wrote Reason, citing a classic segment. In 2012 and 2016, reporters cited Homer Simpson’s proud declaration of “don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos!”—a joke suggesting... Read More
And ignores today’s murder victims.
A memorial is a statement about what society holds to be important and wants to remember. As Confederate memorials come down in the South, a memorial to lynching has been built in Montgomery, Alabama. It claims to honors victims from the past, but its purpose seems to be to shame whites in the present. Philip... Read More
Some Advice to Starbucks
The recent incident at a Philadelphia Starbucks in which the police were called to forcibly remove two loitering black men has again brought to the surface the dilemmas faced by businesses when dealing with the underclass, particularly black males. . On the one hand, failing to keep out this troubled “clientele” can instantly destroy any... Read More

I'm having a fire sale on education stories this week. Also a parallel fire sale on quotes from my 2009 book We Are Doomed, because the education chapter of that book was the most fun to write and it's pertinent to this week's stories. Here's a sort of keynote quote from that chapter: Education story... Read More

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

He heralded publication with a March 23rd New York Times op-ed [How Genetics Is Changing Our Understanding of ‘Race’ ] that got the chattering classes a-chattering and the sputtering classes...

We often hear that we need a conversation on race. Considering that Americans are a brainwashed people living in a false history, such a conversation would resemble the one the Russians were expected to have with the British in regard to the Skripal poisoning: “Yes, we are guilty. We will pay reparations. Where would you... Read More

“Merit-based immigration” is seen as the gold standard of immigration reform by many Republicans and conservative policy wonks. But it could lead to their political ruin. We already have a clear window into what a merit-based policy could bring to the political landscape: look at the Indian colonization of Seattle’s Eastside—the area across Lake Washington...

In my infamous column “The Talk, Nonblack Version” at TakiMag, six years ago this month, I introduced the ad hoc abbreviation IWSB for “Intelligent and Well-Socialized Blacks.” I then advised the nonblack youth of America as follows: I can’t really claim to have been very energetic about taking my own advice here, but there is...

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

Justine Damond had called police at about 11:30 p.m. to report a suspected rape in progress behind her south Minneapolis apartment. A squad car responded, but as Damond approached the car in her night clothes, Officer Mohamed Noor fired across his partner, Matthew Harrity, killing her. Noor is charged with third-degree murder “perpetrating eminently dangerous... Read More

Five years ago, the hipster-Marxist magazine n+1 published a lengthy editorial, White Indians [Spring 2013] complaining that Indians—i.e. Asians from the subcontinent of India—were doing too well. They were making money, staying out of trouble, attending colleges, and generally integrating. Some of them—Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley—were even becoming Republicans! The n+1 Editors were not...

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].

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
Stark Madness and Inmiscibility
Mr. Trump’s comment regarding his preference for immigrants from Norway instead of “shithole countries” such as Haiti engendered among the commentariat a great squealing. I cannot fathom this. Are they geographic virgins, and just don’t know anything of the world? Is it only the usual schadenfreudian gotcha pile-on? The if-A-then-B response to stimulus of a... Read More

The recent engagement of Britain’s Prince Harry to a mixed-race actress of Black and Jewish origins has delivered something of a propaganda coup to the promoters of miscegenation. It’s been hailed as a “great day for interracial relationships and mixed race girls everywhere.” It’s been claimed that it will “change Britain’s relationship with race forever.”... Read More

A Racial Snapshot of America
Let us look into the abyss. It will do no good. First, another page in the sordid comic book of American race relations. In Beijing, three black basketball players from UCLA were arrested for shoplifting. They faced jail time. Ten years, actually. The theft was so stupid that it demands explanation. It was too stupid... Read More

You maybe heard about the black law professor who published an op-ed in the New York Times expressing the anguish he claims to feel when teaching his kids, as he feels he should, that white people can’t be trusted, and blacks can’t be friends with them.

Whiteness is a birth defect
For the mainstream media, it was a bona fide crisis. Blake Shelton, a European-American country singer and a host of The Voice, whom I had never heard of until yesterday morning,was named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man In The World.” The result was outrage. Marlow Stern at the Daily Beast declared grandly that “people” are in... Read More

We’re Going To Be Detroit, Sooner Rather Than Later—But What About America?
VDARE.com readers have probably heard enough about Baltimore, which arguably lost its last intelligent public voice the week Henry Mencken died. Not that long ago, really…1956. But it isn’t often you get to watch a city die in real time. And you have to wonder: will this happen to America? Baltimore’s last few weeks have... Read More

My review was titled “Stereotypes Aren’t So Bad,” which is more or less the message... Read More

The NFL seems at a loss on how to deal with the current controversy over players (most of whom are black) knelling (“taking a knee”) during the national anthem. Every option is unappetizing. The League could, for example, order owners to bench protesters but this risks escalating the protests if non-protesters decide to show solidarity... Read More

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...

We all saw what happened yesterday in Antioch. Emanuel Kidega Samson, a Sudanese refugee from Murfreesboro, entered a predominantly White church in Antioch, TN and opened fire. He shot Melanie Smith in the back as she was walking to her car, turned her over and fatally shot her in the face like a dog. Then... Read More

Newsweek recently sounded the alarm in a long-form piece on what they view as a troubling new trend: Sixty years after Brown vs. Board, forty years after the end of busing, it appears that all the social engineering in the world can't make our multicultural dreams come true: Economist Tyler Cowen, who is a conservative,...

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...

An Introduction to the Blindingly Obvious
If you are a white student in college, you doubtless hear daily that white people are evil, the principal cause of everything wrong with the world. Whiteness is bad, white people are bad. We are to blame for everything. If you believe this, you are being gamed. What you are being told is nonsense. If... Read More

How can a heretic safely and openly discuss taboo topics? Not easy, particularly on today’s intolerant university campuses, but history shows multiple tactics to overcome censorship. It’s just a question of being creative and knowing the limits. Familiar examples have included using non-human parables—think Animal Farm— substituting the neutral sounding euphemisms such as “at-risk youngster”... Read More
Alt-Right Leader Richard Spencer
Even in today’s acrimonious political landscape, nothing seems to draw as much vitriol as the minuscule “Alt-Right” (shorthand for an alternative to mainstream Conservatism Inc.). Indeed, if America’s political class organized 1984-style two-minute hates, the Alt-Right would be the star of the show with Richard Spencer substituting for Emmanuel Goldstein. Given this aversion across the... Read More

Evening Star Pub in Brighton, 2012
A bar featuring $2 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon should never be empty. Granted, it’s a crap beer, but I’d guzzle dish water for two bucks, as long as it had some alcohol in it. So I was in The Dive for more than three hours, and during that entire time, only two other losers... Read More

“Racist” is the favorite epithet of the left. Every white person (except leftists) is a racist by definition. As we are defined as racists based on our skin color, I am puzzled why we are called racists a second, third, and fourth time due to specific acts, such as favoring the enforcement of immigration laws....

A known quantity in the faking department is Rev. Al Sharpton. In a video that gets considerable play on TV, Sharpton informs a rapt audience that “white folks” were cave dwellers when blacks were building empires and pyramids; teaching philosophy, astrology and mathematics. “Socrates and them Greek homos” were mere copycats, aping black civilization. As... Read More

A Tale Of Black Atrocity, MSM Lies, Justice System Failure–And Parental Agony
The Main Stream Media is working very hard right now to send down the Memory Hole the abduction and days-long torture of an 18-year-old disabled white man by four blacks (right)including one he pathetically thought was his friend, who (incredibly) livestreamed the atrocity on Facebook. Not coincidentally, there seems to be no national media coverage... Read More
