It Wasn’t Blacks Who Got America To The Moon, They Actually Wanted To Stop It

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

Occidental Dissent visits Selma
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 Selma... 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
The long (16,600 words) goodbye. For a black view of Obama as he departs the presidential stage, you might be moved to try the article by Ta-Nehisi Coatesin the current (Jan./Feb. 2017) issue of The Atlantic. [My President Was Black] If you are so moved, best set aside an hour for the reading: Coates’ piece... Read More

Unsung Black Women Were NOT What Got Us To The Moon
John Glenn’s passing at the age of 95 is just another reminder that the era of infinite possibility is sadly passing away. Glenn, a Marine fighter pilot in WWII and Korea, was the first American to orbit the earth in 1962. And with Glenn’s death goes the possibility of refuting one of the stranger tales... Read More

An enormous but seldom acknowledged paradox exists in American race relations. On the one hand, white America has gone to extraordinary lengths to help blacks: billions spent on anti-poverty programs and education; enacting countless anti-discrimination laws; interpreting laws and legal doctrines to give African Americans every possible advantage, obsessing over diversity and if these measures...

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
Baba Sy breaking world record for simultaneous draughts play.
The first logical way the American-invented cognitive game of Scrabble settles the score against radical hereditarians in the racial (Black-White) IQ gap debate is through a two step process: how do white female players compare to white male players in top-level elite Scrabble? Since many mainstream cognitive psychologists tell us that white women (like white... Read More
Street Scene Near Temple University, 2016
Over three days last week, at least 150 blacks attacked whites at random around TempleUniversity. Victims were surrounded, punched and kicked. Wallets and phones were stolen. Rocks were thrown at passing cars. When cops showed up, one was knocked from her bike and a police horse was even punched twice in the muzzle. Most of... Read More

In the U.K. Spectator, American freelance hack Eric Weinberger reviews Another Day In The Death Of America, a book about America’s “gun culture”, written by Gary Younge, a black UK. Guardian writer who was born in the U.K. to Jamaican parents. It’s based on an investigation of 10 deaths that happened in one fairly average... Read More
VDARE.com is an immigration-patriot i.e. restrictionist website. We’re also race realist: We accept that in a multiracial society, different races will inevitably, in the generality, precipitate out at different levels, in defiance of any social-engineering intervention not absolutely totalitarian. Given all that, what do we think about black immigration? I raise the subject because there... Read More

Headline on Drudge. THUGS OF CHARLOTTE WHITE MAN DRAGGED, BEATEN BEGGING FOR MERCY Just another day at the Exceptional Nation. Racial attacks, racial threats, looting, burning. When I am politically upset, I loot stores. Don’t you? It is worth understanding what we deal with. The video makes it rioters grow in imagination. This time they... Read More
Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP, proudly proclaimed, "This is what democracy looks like." Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was... 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
Continuity is comforting. The sun rises, the value of pi remains unchanged, businesses burn, cars are smashed, and rioters with the minds of children and the hormones of adults throw bricks at the police. All in good fun. These incidents seem to come at shorter intervals. In characteristic confusion, in Milwaukee the mob believed that... Read More

Reaction to the recent Milwaukee riot has followed a predictable script and for liberals this requires insisting that that blacks themselves are largely blameless for the “uprising.” But, even if liberals admit that some Milwaukee residents were guilty, they will nevertheless claim that these miscreants, typically unemployed school dropouts, are only a minuscule element in...

The Cedar Rapids Sweet Corn Festival: When you see these reports, ask \"What COLOR boy?\"
This week we saw some more fruits of Midwestern Nice. By a pleasant concinnity, the scene was Wisconsin’s 4th Congressional District, right up against Wisconsin’s 1st, where Paul Ryan, the Dark Lord of Midwestern Nice, crushed his enemies in last week’s primary. Those two Congressional Districts are considerably different. District 1, Paul Ryan’s, is 91... 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. On two previous trips, I was confined to mostly black and car wrecked Detroit. Flying out from DetroitAirport, I bought two National coneys and, boy, were they sad. Hotdogs, chili, onion,...

Since the 1960s Washington has launched countless programs in what might be characterized as “racial alchemy” whose purpose is to make blacks nearly identical to whites in income, educational achievement, vocational status, being law abiding, eschewing welfare dependency and multiple other measures of equality. Despite all the billions, perhaps trillions, the results have been disappointing.... Read More
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

A hundred-and-fifty-one years after the abolition of slavery, America has a half white, half black president, a black Nobelist in literature, whites who attribute not just every form but instance of black dysfunction to white racism, blacks who demand reparations, the mainstreaming of innumerable black slang terms, including “diss,” a new phrase “negro fatigue” and...

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

Something is Wrong Somewhere
Some time ago I read a column on the schooling of blacks written by Walter Williams, the black economist at George Mason University, who grew up in the black housing projects of Philadelphia in the Thirties. I have read Williams for years. He is an absolutely reliable witness. He reports that all the kids could... 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
The national appetite for stories—books and movies—about white people being beastly to black peopleis apparently insatiable. A blockbuster of this genre, which I’ve referred to as “Abolitionist Porn”, was the novel and TV movie Roots, back in the 1970s. The book, written by professional black guy Alex Haley, was published in 1976; the TV show... 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. Around this 45-foot-tall sculpture by Claes Oldenburg, I’ve seen an assortment of petty hustlers selling everything from loosies to oddball T-shirts,... Read More

I recommend Sandernistas read Joy Reid’s Fracture for an understanding of some of the passion and vitriol pervading the Democratic primaries. Based on long and disapproving observation of Hillary Clinton’s policies as Secretary of State, I am not a fan. She relies on the lazy conflation of political advantage with national interest, and confounds frontrunning... Read More

On April 22, 2016 Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe by executive order restored the voting rights of 206,000 felons who have served their time and completed other requirements. Also bestowed were the rights to serve on a jury, run for office and serve as a notary public. He framed his action broadly, “If we are going... Read More
A photograph buzzing around the internet this week shows sixteen black andmulatto female West Point cadets, in uniform, posing with their fists raised in an apparent tribute to the Black Lives Matter Soros-funded anarchist group. Where there should be comradeship and institutional loyalty, these troublemakers have introduced rancor, division, and victimological whining. That’s not to... Read More
In reading the endless complaints by blacks about shootings by the police, I usually find it hard to know what really happened. As far as I am aware, the media never allow an unedited interview, or any interview, with the police charged with the shootings but allow endless commentary by people who weren’t there. I...

Recent campus race-related demonstrations are often bizarre. Clearly, there are no rational, cost/benefit explanations for this agitation, especially considering that many student protesters are allocating time better spent on academic pursuits. Do black Cornell University protestors honestly believe, for example, that forcing their school to drop the term “Plantation” from Cornell’s botanical gardens name will... Read More

There have been some later developments in the storm-in-an-academic-teacup over Williams College President Adam Falk [Email him] canceling a talk I was invited to give to the “Uncomfortable Learning” student group.

When It Comes to People of Color, the Police Make San Francisco “Baghdad by the Bay”
In the photo, five of Beyoncé’s leather-clad, black-bereted dancers raise their fists in a Black Power salute. The woman in the middle holds a hand-lettered sign up for the camera, bearing three words and a number: “Justice 4 Mario Woods.” Behind them, the crowd at Levi's Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, is getting...

In one of the widely circulated cellphone videos of the killing of Mario Woods by San Francisco police in December, you can hear the young girl filming his death screaming. "Are you fucking serious?" she shrieks over and over at the crowd of cops encircling the young black man. According to police, Woods had refused... Read More
"The National Question: Race, Ethnicity, and Identity In the 21st Century"
[As reported here last week, I was scheduled to speak to a student group at Williams College in Massachusetts on Monday, February 22nd. However, the President of Williams College, Adam Falk [Email him] , banned me from his campus on the grounds that I am a speaker of “hate speech.” For updates, check out the... Read More
Radio Derb is on the air–go here to play it, or download the MP3. Excerpt: In last week’s podcast I opined in reference to the Superbowl halftime show that, quote, “The nation’s appetite for anti-white propaganda seems … to be well-nigh bottomless,” end quote. Later in the same segment I confessed that what mainly got... Read More

The recent campus events have not been especially good for fans of academic integrity. Social Justice Warriors (SJW’s) have achieved one success after another while college Presidents have been busier than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest in confessing toxic white privilege and promising to do “whatever it takes” to appease thin-skinned students of...

From the Superbowl to South Carolina, the appetite for anti-White propaganda seems to be well-nigh bottomless. Or at least Thunder-Thighed. Lead singer in this year’s Superbowl half-time show was Beyoncé. Formerly Beyoncé Knowles, which used to get my attention because my mother was aKnowles. I guess Beyoncé and I are related at some level—Hi, cousin!... Read More
’m going to bundle up three stories here, and hypothesize that perhaps they represent a trend: America is edging its way back to segregation—led by blacks. First story. Last week I mentioned the excellent website CampusReform.org,which does great work exposing the absurdities of Political Correctness in our colleges. Here’s another one from them, dated January...

Differential Racial and Gender Canalization Explains Group Intellectual Differences.
Note: Although he will probably disagree with its conclusions, this article is dedicated to Professor Thomas Sowell, whose astonishing breadth and depth of research are humanly unmatchable.

Jack Kerwick, who holds a doctorate in philosophy from Temple University and teaches at various colleges in the Philadelphia area, is a talented polemicist as well as learned academic.

Thomas Sowell vs. Richard Lynn
“It should be noted that a study of black and white Americans is not a study of Negro and Caucasian races in any global sense.” – Thomas Sowell, 1978 (Essays and Data on American Ethnic groups, p. 206). I will now respond to some hereditarian scholars who wrote some articles in response to my data... Read More

Any sensible person viewing today’s identity-based, tribe-like political activism (think recent incidents at the University of Missouri and Yale among countless others) would conclude that these antics are stupid, foolish, counter-productive, and otherwise ill-conceived or, as the Marxists would say, infantile leftist. Hard to separate reality from what appears in the satirical Onion. Why, for... Read More
