Updated, 9/11/15 9/4/15. See below! Throughout this blog, I've talked a lot about the American Nations – a concept, based on a book by Colin Woodard, that North America is divided into several ethno-cultural-political regional "nations". These nations are distributed approximately as shown above. The empirical bases of the existence of these ethno-cultural entities has... Read More
One of the key points I've tried to stress on this blog is that micro-scale population structure – that is, fine genetic variation across populations can have a substantial impact on societal characteristics. We aren't just talking about continental racial variation. We aren't even talking just about ethnic variation. Sorting within an ethnic groups can... Read More
In his latest VDARE column, John Derbyshire has written a glowing discussion of yours truly: John Derbyshire On JayMan—A Righteous Jamaican-American | VDARE.COM Well... more on that shortly. That is my thing. A couple of my tweets on the matter shoul
With the recent spate of mass shootings, (at least four high-profile incidents occurring in the U.S. and Canada in the last two weeks), the issues of guns and violence inevitably come up. Naturally, the politically correct wisdom, which is founded on the blank slate (or at least, a bare slate), wants to blame these events... Read More
Post updated, 6/10/14. See below! As we saw previously (see My Most Read Posts), my post Maps of the American Nations is the single most popular post so far here on my blog. Americans all over are supremely interested in both their origins and the reasons for the cultural quirks of the different American regions.... Read More
In this post, I don't mean in the way some people might think (though it does work in that sense too), I mean in terms of longevity. Mainstream thinkers, and some in the HBD-sphere, are fascinated and confounded by the persistent variation in health and lifespan of different peoples around the world. This has given... Read More
In the wake of the recent snow storm in the Deep South, The Atlantic recently released an article with a map made by Reddit user Alexandr Trubetskoy with the typical amount of snowfall it takes to cancel schools in the different counties across America. Since I couldn't resist, I thought I'd put Colin Woodard's American... Read More
This past summer my wife and I ventured through Eastern New England/Yankeedom (a.k.a., the Canadian Maritimes), and it involved a trip through the remnant of the French colony of Acadia, which in actuality is quite alive and well. In my final post of 2013, I will discuss these fascinating people. Acadia was the French colony... Read More
Edit, 4/16/14: Post updated, see below! I wanted to feature two new versions of Colin Woodard's map of the American Nations that I have created. For reference, here is Woodard's map: We know we can split the cultural and political behaviors (and many other aspects) of the United States and Canada according to these maps... Read More
We are familiar with Colin Woodard's map of the American nations: Especially their divisions in the United States. Now, for completeness sake, here they are for Canada (based on a map from Wikipedia): Many of the nations that make up the United States continue into Canada. In many ways, Canada is essentially the U.S. without... Read More
Across the United States, there is a general pattern – at least among Whites – of urban dwellers tending to be more liberal and rural dwellers tending to be more conservative. Indeed, this pattern is so pronounced that Steve Sailer managed to produce a now well-known (at least in the HBD-sphere) hypothesis of White American... Read More
Colin Woodard's book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, is currently generating a lot of buzz. This is, in good part, thanks to an article that appeared in Tufts Magazine in which Woodard describes his work. Like David Hackett Fischer's Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America before...

Another map of the American nations: This is where the states stand on Obamacare's expansion of Medicaid. As you can see, it's far from universally embraced. Now let's compare that to this map: And for that matter, this map: Most of the usual suspects. Most prominent among those who reject the Medicaid expansion are those... Read More
My earlier post, Mapping the Road to American Disunion, discussed the apparent high likelihood of increased social and political unrest in America in the coming years – a process which, with the ongoing partisan stand-off in Washington, might well be under way. This was based on the work of Peter Turchin and his field cliodynamics.... Read More
Scientist/historian Peter Turchin (who was recently in the news for his model which describes the evolution of human civilization over the past few millennia) previously claimed that the United States is due for some sort of upheaval in the coming years – based on his study of historical cycles (cliodynamics), as previously discussed in my...

Continuing my on-going series on the regional differences – genetic regional differences – between the different Euro-Americans in the United States and Canada, here I will present a series of maps demonstrating some of the evidence for the existence and significance of these differences, beyond the historical circumstances explored by David Hackett Fischer (DHF) in...

My previous two posts featured some of the flags – assigned by me – of the various "nations" of North America, as described by Colin Woodard, and as derived from David Hackett Fischer. Inspired by the Bloomberg map of the American nations, where Woodard assigned a flag to each nation, I thought I'd make my... Read More
Emphasis mine: American Nations. (p. 279) What does this
Edit 2/24/14 [Post updated, see below] Edit 7/20/13: [Post updated as per HBD Chick's comment. See below] The European colonists (mostly British, French, and Germans, with a smattering of other groups) who first settled North America brought with them their distinct "cultural" features that laid the foundation for the persistent regional differences across the U.S....
