    From Pew Research Center: Interestingly the rank order of whites>Hispanics>blacks were seen on each of the eleven questions. I've been following baseball stats since 1965 and social science statistics since 1972. In general, this is why cognitive statistics aren't as interesting as baseball statistics. Sports statistics change over time and pop up surprises, but education...
  • Getting nine out of eleven questions right seems a strange threshold.

    My favourite question: “A car travelling at 40 mph travels 30 miles in 45 minutes”

    Some citizens found that one hard.

    • Replies: @Redneck farmer
    Citizen Talking Barbie did.
  • Here's something that might surprise you. In the last few days, three separate surveys have been released showing that a majority (or near-majority) of Americans still think Donald Trump colluded with Russia. As you know, this does not square with the findings of the Mueller Report which were released (in part) over the weekend by...
  • Thinking back to the WMD scam……changing minds takes a long time and may manifest in unexpected ways.

    The birth of the dissident New Right came about in part because conservatives realised that Conservatism Inc. was selling them lies – such as WMD.

    Give the lefties some more time….and some nice long prison sentences to Brennan et al.

  • With all the current emphasis on hearing from too-long suppressed Voices of Intersectional Diversity, we are getting a crash course in what Women of Color have on their minds. Which often turns out to be: Let's talk about how adorable I am. Let's complain about how white racism causes white people to constantly talk about...
  • I think the term “white feminist” may be code for:

    250 pound-bluehair-muff-snorkeler with some fairly obvious mental health issues.

    Now her comments make more sense.

  • Reuters-Ipsos has a poll tracking partisan affiliation that has been running since the beginning of 2016. It now has a total sample standing at 457,215 responses. The explorer allows for all kinds of filters to be applied, including state of residency, educational attainment, race, and 2016 presidential vote. So here are the results with those...
  • The Democratic Party is so strongly anti-white that it should be possible to increase these scores by 5 percentage points over the next two years.

    Jews vote 70%+ for Dems, so asking for 60% of whites to vote R does not seem impossible at all.

  • From the London Review of Books: In contrast, I gave Carl's big book a less credulous review in Taki's Magazine. ... We tend to think of heredity as having something to do with traits that are passed from generation to generation, but in many ancient societies, the words for ‘kin’ and ‘kinship’ often denoted connections...
  • Out of any hundred pairs of fourth cousins, 25 pairs wouldn’t share any identical segments

    Who would have guessed? Beyond second (maybe third) cousins exists an ocean known as “distant relatives”. The distant is there for a reason.

    • Replies: @Curmudgeon
    Zimmer is cherry picking. Iceland had a DNA project that set out to test what the population generally believed - that they are all related. Guess what, more than 90% of the population is related. The same would be the case in places like Samoa, Fiji, the Canary Islands, and the "original" Hawaiian population.
    Even in the UK, up to a century ago, people married people within a 50 mile radius of where they were born. At some point, there was going to be a lot of relatives marrying relatives, although not first cousins.
  • In the New York Review of Books, white environmentalist Bill McKibben realizes that the Democratic Party is not interested in conserving guys like him, and thinks that -- environment be damned -- is sort of great: The people who most have to breathe the fumes from refineries are the people who work there and they...
  • @Pat Boyle
    Kinda hard to understand your point.

    @G Pinfold is right. The Deep State went a few steps too far in meddling in the 2016 elections and didn’t cover its tracks well enough. The scandal now developing could wash away a lot of corruption and a lot of the corrupt people, organisations and corporations that make up the US’s other government.

    My first port of call always used to be this blog, but I now go to Conservative Tree House to catch up on the latest before coming here.

    • Agree: jim jones

    I can only read so many rehashes of Asian discrimination at Harvard before my eyes glaze over.

    More often than not I scroll through and find things that were hot takes in 2012 popping up again. Kurt Schlicter of all people is more on the bleeding edge of commentary than this place.
  • As Lenin (or Trotsky or, most likely, Stalin) said, all that matters in politics is "Who? Whom?" See my latest Taki's Mag column for a deeper dive on the topic of the hour.
  • I don’t know who J Burton is, but he’s one of ours and he’s one of the best with a solid history of on point tweets.

  • In the past week, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, now the chief lawyer and principal spokesman for President Donald Trump's legal team, has offered arguments more harmful to Trump than helpful. In a series of combative, disjointed and logically challenged television rants, Giuliani has essentially argued that Trump did not engage in any conspiracy...
  • Is this a Buchanan or a Napolitano column? This reader is confused.

  • Mueller is investigating an alleged agreement between Russian intelligence agents and Trump campaign officials for the Russians to provide dirt on Clinton to the campaign.

    Mueller would need to find behaviour more egregious than the DNC’s use of a foreign agent to put together a dirty dossier with Russian sourcing.

    This is a high bar indeed.

    • Replies: @anonymous
    Oh, so that's what Mr. Mueller is investigating? But the WaPo story sitting in my lap says he "is examining whether the president has sought to block the probe into Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign." And now maybe there can be an exploration of the attempt to block the examination of any efforts to impede the investigation....

    I don’t know if they ever killed exchanged spies
     
    Not to my knowledge. I stand to be corrected if there is such a case. The point is significant because an exchanged spy has been unmasked, and generally tried, convicted and jailed. In other words, they've been punished and if it were deemed appropriate to kill them that would already have been done. And if Russia made a practice of murdering people they exchanged then there would be "witness protection" style programs in place for them.

    The important case is the exchanged spies, because that is what Skripal was, and that is why, as for-the-record has pointed out, he seemingly felt perfectly safe living openly in Britain, and his handlers presumably shared that confidence.

    My understanding is that Skripal was sentenced to only 13 years for his offences against Russia. That suggests that he is not Public Eneny Number One in Russian eyes.

    The big punishments here are mostly reserved for crimes by harmless people, such as minor perverts and (white) speech and thought criminals.

    The official English Court of Appeal approved sentence applicable to a previously convicted criminal thug for killing a man in a violent assault on a stranger in the street, for supposedly "disrespecting" his mate by telling him he shouldn't be cycling on the pavement, is four and a half years, (out after two years or so, in practice, with good behaviour while inside).

    At least, that's for specially privileged groups such as blacks. It might well be higher if it had been a white guy who had killed a black victim.

  • Cruz apparently believes his biological mother to be Jewish.

    2) a school shooting isn’t an occasion for jokes and laughter. Here we have a WN leader playing it for giggles. Not a good look.

    3) what if Cruz now claims he is part of the group (even if he isn’t and never has been)? He might do this because he’s crazy or because his lawyer tells him to do so. This would muddy the waters even more as you would have both Jereb and Cruz saying he’s a member with Jereb then retracting. The press would have a field day with that.

    And, yeah, they are lookers. Too bad they are also exploited mercilessly for it, as is the whole of Eastern Europe. I think the beauty thing, aside from the regional gene pool and the selection in environments with high male mortality, is also due to the greater femininity of the women in terms of culture, not having been spoiled in great numbers by ideologies adverse to beauty. So even a homelier woman would take care of herself, dress as well as she can afford, wear make-up etc and thereby increase her natural appeal.
    , @BB753
    My definition of a shithole is a country with few roads, hospitals, no tap water or sewer system, little law and order, not much of an economy and even fewer educated citizens. Moldavia or Moldova does not meet those criteria. If the country was located in Africa, it would be a superpower.

    "Yesterday I saw the new version of “Murder on the Orient Express”. It’s not much of a film, but one of things that really grated was the number of blacks playing roles (such as a British policeman) in the 1930s that they would never have had."

    The black policeman in Palestine was believable. The black policeman in Eastern Europe or wherever, who gets about 1.1 seconds of screen time, was most definitely not. I didn't mind Leslie Odom, Jr's character too much, but whatever.

    The most annoying effort at diversifying a cast I've seen was in The Hobbit. Peter Jackson did a great job keeping Middle Earth in LOTR authentic as a stand-in for Ancient Britain, but someone clearly twisted his arm while making The Hobbit to throw in a little diversity, so that we end up with 100% pure Africans in Lake Town. I assume he was pressured because he did a good job giving them as little screen time as possible.

    My assumption, given what we've seen recently about Hollywood, is that when producers and directors are prodded to add diversity to a cast they tend to prefer black men over black women because, well, they mostly would prefer to sleep with white women.

    The Cult-Marx/SJW/ethnomasochist/Goodwhite definition of "White Supremacist" is basically anyone who is not White Submissivist.[1] (Or at least anyone who is not emphatically not White Submissivist.) Just as the prevailing effective definition of "anti-racism" could be said to be anti-White-ism. Does not "racist", as used by the aforesaid entities, effectively mean not anti-White?

  • Surely it’s time to break these monopolies up. I’ve moved to DuckDuckGo for search, but it will take DoJ action to make a real dent in this monster.

    When I was younger there was a lot of anguish about the Seven Sisters – the big oil companies. But they were orders of magnitude less intrusive than the new tech giants who few complain about.

    It was a genius move on the part of Silicon Valley to invest in the Democratic Party and not the GOP, it’s more or less insulated them from criticism.

    Yes, this should absolutely be done, or at least moved toward. But the key is not to stop there. They should also be regulated as public utilities (or at least parts of them should if in fact they are broken up). And there's probably other things as well, but I mention that one for two reasons.

    1. Mandating fair access (and in particular lack of viewpoint discrimination) to at least some extent turns the tables around where we are Who doing what to them who are Whom, as opposed to the usual where we are the Whom. Moreover it affects a far greater number of people than would conceivably be impacted if James Damore wins his lawsuits.

    2. It costs Silicon Valley and its investors money. I don't know all of the history involved but I vaguely remember hearing about how the breakup of Standard Oil and AT&T benefitted the stockholders in that the pieces became more valuable than the conglomerates they were before. I'm not completely sure that's right and in any event I'm not sure if that would translate to Silicon Valley, if that does hold, the effect of breaking up the unicorns is mostly about enriching the VC's at the expense of the companies' management.

    1) There are no biological differences between men and women from an IT standpoint.

    2) Pichai is CEO of Google and therefore ultimately responsible for hiring.

    3) Google/Pichai has hired a workforce that is 80% male in its more techy areas.

  • The meeting took place in June 2016. It was a bust, with no useful information being delivered.

    Twenty years ago, the word was that Africa was facing depopulation because of AIDs.

    BTW, 40 years ago, the word was that the next Ice Age was imminent.

    Lots of things happen in the long term. Extrapolating a few years of data, a lot of it questionable coming from poorly organized regions of the world, into a decades-long trend encompasses a whole lot of assumptions, the first one being that everything is going to remain the same as it is now to allow the trend to continue.

    It is like assuming a blizzard is going to last forever and then making predictions about how in 10 years we are going to have two miles deep of snow cover. Kind of ridiculous, no?

    Even worse than making up such alarmist stuff is falling for it.
    , @res
    There is some literature on this. For example:
    https://www.nap.edu/read/9828/chapter/4#44
    http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00324720127686

    Those seem to conclude the projections have been reasonably accurate (although the relative lack of studies more recently than 1998 data might be suspicious).

    However, the issue with the African projections is very specific: how quickly (if at all) will the fertility transition happen? (leaving aside the Malthusian correction potential) I think it would be helpful to focus on predictions of transitions from high fertility to lower fertility with a particular interest in those for Africa itself (i.e. Africans and Asians are different). I suspect that analysis would not be encouraging. The million dollar question is whether the demographers will be right this time that an African fertility decline is right around the corner.

    With comparisons to the past it's important to note that the smaller historical size of African populations would cause projection errors there to be muted in the worldwide numbers.

    Earnest HBDers should memorise the article, and incorporate it into all their immigration discussions.

    • Replies: @snorlax
    Borjas was unfortunately not hired by Trump for the Council of Economic Advisors, which instead went to a standard-issue pro-invasion type.

    Trump isn't the kind of guy who'd know who George Borjas is, so probably he just okayed whomever Priebus/Pence suggested.

    thanks for the link. There was a time not long ago when many leftists supported a reduction on the flow of immigrants. It seems the media now forgets that it was the GOP which pushed for open borders and amnesty...George Bush gleefully signed the 1990 immigration bill which created the Diversity visa lottery, eliminated the English requirement for becoming a US citizen and expended Legal immigration by 50%. Trump should actively work to eliminate the 1990 immigration bill, ending the Greencard lottery is imperative as it favors immigration from muslims in Africa and Asia while banning the UK, Chinese and Mexicans from the program...clearly this is discrimination. Better to end the program which has admitted 2.5 million third work immigrants since 1991.

    since men were polygamous during the Bronze age, the leading men of the time would have impregnated dozens of females. So there would be more women who had offspring than males , just like today. More males die childless than women, which has been true since the beginning of man.

    I played around with haplogroups for a while but when I look back at my maps they're a bit confusing. But I came to the conclusion that the world could be divided into about 7-10 male territories, such as R in west asia, O in east Asia, Q in the Americas, E in Africa, N in north Asia. That's not to say that other haplogroups aren't around, but just looking at the dominant (pre-colonial) haplogroups in a region. The pattern for women is not the same in each region. In west asia, female R (which is a macrogroup made up of Rh, Rv, Ru) also makes up 50-60% of women (Rh being by far the most prevalent). But in East Asia there is a consistent pattern of MNR haplogroups across the region. In Africa there is L(1,2,3) and M is particularly found in India. I found it fascinating and seems to indicate more pair-binding in west asia and more polygamy in east asia. There are four female haplogroups in the Americas but they seem to settle separately (with male Q) rather than all four occurring together in the same area. There also seems to be a distinct divide between west and east asia. There is a R haplogroup in east asia but it is different from the h,u,v R in west asia.

    I went to the "How to Be a Good Classicist Under a Bad Emperor" link, and there I found the Eidolon website, where Donna Zuckerberg writes:

    Today I’m excited to announce a new offering by the Eidolon editorial team: idle musings, a blog where we’ll share the strange, random, fun things we write. It will be informal and unscheduled. ...

    Basically, Yung In Chae wrote a poem and we needed a place to put it.
     

    Yung In Chae is an Associate Editor of Eidolon and studies Classics at Cambridge.

    So, then I clicked on "a poem", which took me to the poem that Yung In Chae wrote. Her poem's idea is to rhyme “chair” and “fake hair” in order to mock Donald Trump. Here are some excerpts from the poem:


    Ode of a Classicist-Craftsman-Poet (Who Also Wants to Do a Trump Comparison)

    by Yung In Chae

    Dedicated to Donna Zuckerberg, Editor-in-Chief Extraordinaire

    Oh wonderful chair
    I of the clearly fake hair

    Look upon my work, ye Mighty
    and despair of the marble-whitey
    faces of my voters
    the movers and promoters
    of racism and misogyny

    I talked to Farage and he
    couldn’t agree with me more

    We’re at the White House’s door
    Until Nigel went back on his word
    Can’t stick to anything, little turd
    But he speaks his mind, unlike Paul Ryan
    Fearless leader? I told you he was lyin’

    Then all those bitter women joined in
    Like I’d touch her, she’s not even thin

    [....]

    It was a joke, albeit at women’s expense
    Think that’s wrong? Well, fuck you, Mike Pence

    [....]

    But my chair, darling chair! You are truly art
    Untaxable, even — that makes me smart

    [....]

    I’m a man’s man, that there’s no disputin’
    Manlier than my main man Vladimir Putin

    Once you see my wall, you’ll be calling me Hadrian
    I’d beat anyone in all the fucking Mediterranean

    [....]

    You’d be crowned best chair ever, it’d happen in a jiff
    if only the election weren’t rigged (sniff)

    I say this, chair: your majesty on Election Day we’ll see
    and great again shall America be.
