Some Stuff Worth Knowing
For Americans concerned about Mexico and Mexicans, and what sort of wights they be, a little history may help. We seem to know almost nothing about a bordering nation of 130 million. It is not what most of us think it is. It is certainly not what the Loon Right would have us believe. For... Read More
A Study of Northern Inattention
In America two narratives about Mexico dominate. The first, chiefly emanating from anti-immigrant ideologues who usually have never been here, holds that Mexicans have low IQs and cannot function at other than a primitive level. Breitbart News and something called Vdare are chief among these. They don’t quite expect to find all Mexicans either robbing... Read More

Maybe Not a Really Great Idea
Regarding Latinos not as citizens but as internal enemies of America is an idea pushed not just by many racialist websites (e.g., Vdare).but also by Donald Trump. The outlook is particularly characteristic of something called the Alt-Right, a substantial if loosely defined group who are horrified at the thought of racial amalgamation. Hostility intensifies as... Read More

Twenty years ago, California public schools were forcing thousands of Latino children into Spanish-almost-only classes against the wishes of their parents. In 1996, The Los Angeles Times told the story of a group of Latino immigrant parents who began a public protest against their local elementary school for refusing to teach their children English, boycotting...

Inasmuch America has a large population of Latin Americans, it seems to me that people, or some people, might want to know about them, and what they are, and where they came from. Most Latinos of the south are either a mixture of Spanish and Indian, or sometimes pure Indian. We have some idea of... Read More

“White nationalists” as they call themselves would like to US to be close to one hundred percent white. So would I. So would many tens of millions of Americans who do not call themselves white nationalists, but are. Diversity causes nothing but trouble, and is doing so now. However, America can’t be completely white, or... Read More
Ava Carlyle Vernier, her own self. Eight pounds seven ounces, all systems go. A major advance in biology. The evolutionary progression: Al Sharpton, the Great Apes, Neanderthals, Cro-Magnons, Ava Carlyle. Estimated IQ: Low four figures. Nobility: Obvious. Does not look like every baby ever born. If respiratory capacity may be judged by volume of outraged squalling, she may have the best lungs on the planet. (“Where is this? I don’t like it. I’m hungry. Put me back. Give me something to eat. Now.”)
Los Angeles–Back from Cedars Sinai Medical Center, which has ushered into this veil of whatever it is a veil of the world’s most advanced and meritorious granddaughter, the only credible evidence for Darwin. Helluva baby. A military-minded friend said I should regard her as “a howitzer round fired eighty-five years down-range.” See below for specifications.... Read More

Reality on the Ground
I recently asked a friend of long standing, involved in law enforcement in California, how the state's massive immigration looked, in the streets and court rooms, to someone actually there. The following is his answer, edited only to remove identification. It is consisten with what I have seen myself, though a decade ago, and what... Read More

A Surly View from the South
[If you want to see why Congress is a zoo, check this. Guam is going totip over.] A few thoughts for Americans (justifiably) upset by the influx of illegal Mexicans: First, they come because you invite them. In effect you say, “Diego, don’t you cross that river. If you do, and we catch you, we’ll... Read More

Gray Matter in a Brown Package
Latinos are now seventeen percent of the population, and the president is doing everything he can to increase that proportion. Will they assimiliate successfully? There are many reasons for suspecting that they will not, and others for suspecting that they will. A crucial sub-question is whether they are as intelligent as whites. Many quietly think...

Grant Me the Wisdom to Know the Difference
"Race realists," as they call themselves, very much want to think that Latin Americans are inherently stupid. The idea appeals to me. As a curmudgeon, I like to believe in the corruption, venality, concupiscence, and stupidity of our sorry race. Certainly it is the way to bet. Further, I admit, indeed espouse, the biological possibility... Read More
Squamous cervix cells covered with rod-shaped bacteria, Gardnerella vaginalis(source) Bacterial vaginosis is a common disease among reproductive-aged women: Its incidence correlates with the number of lifetime sex partners, and this correlation holds true even when one controls for a series of socioeconomic variables: poverty, smoking, body mass index, douching frequency, education, and oral contraceptive use...

Total fertility by race, 1980-2010 (source). Is the end of White America being hastened by the Obama presidency? Or is it actually being postponed? Both the right and the left are trumpeting the Obama presidency as marking the end of White America. In a harshly worded column, conservative Ann Coulter argues that Obama and the... Read More
My daughter had an unfortunate experience this weekend near Winchester in Virginia. She and a group of friends were tubing on the Shenandoah River. Nearby a large group of Hispanics were at a public park picnicking, apparently a regular event in that area. A boy and his father were wading in the river when suddenly... Read More
Only a few days after the national election, President Bush appointedhis campaign manager, Ken Mehlman, the new head of the Republican National Committee. Shortly afterwards, Mr. Mehlman offered the world his own analysis of the voting patterns in the 2004 election and what they tell us as to why his boss won. As the Washington... Read More
If last week's election returns tell President Bush anything about immigration policy, it is that he ought to continue and even expand the"guest workers" program he unveiled last January. What was essentially an amnesty for illegal aliens, a reward for lawbreakers and an open invitation to the world to immigrate to this country seems to... Read More
After nearly a decade of obsession with and pandering to the Hispanic vote, the leaders of both major political parties are finally being told an unpleasant truth—the Hispanic vote is overrated. Last week William Frey, one of the country's leading demographersand a major expert on immigration, unbosomed this lesson in an interview with the Washington... Read More
The most recent contribution of the Open Borders Lobby to the decomposition of American civilization is the immigrant gang, which has now spread itself from the inner precincts of San Diego to such places as the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. In the summer issue of the City Journal, published by the libertarian think tank the... Read More
The 2004 presidential election may turn out to be decided by racial identities. For the last decade or so, the Republican Party has abandoned all pretense of controlling mass immigration on the superstitious ground that immigration control will alienate the booming Hispanic vote. Now, as two major news stories last week suggested, that superstition is... Read More
President Bush can explain his Iraq policies all he wants, but he'll need more than that to stay in the White House. What he needs are called "voters," and in large part because of the kind of immigration policies the president and his party have supported, he may not have enough of them to win... Read More
With no fewer than three lead articles on the California election in the next issue of the Weekly Standard, the neoconservative spin on the election's meaning is pretty much complete. As usual, the neocons manage to miss (or mask) the real meaning,misdirect conservatives and Republicans who pay attention to them and desperately try to clamber... Read More
Does the California election prove that Republicans can now win the Hispanic vote? That's what some pundits are claiming because of the comparatively low support won by professional Hispanic candidate Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante (54 percent) and the supposedly high support captured by winner Arnold Schwarzenegger (30 percent). As usual, of course, the pundits are... Read More
If recent polls on the California gubernatorial race are at all accurate, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante will not win the election, but he will certainly come closer than most other candidates. That's because Mr. Bustamante enjoys an advantage most other candidates, including the (still) likely winner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, don't—namely racial solidarity. Because Mr. Bustamante is...

With the presidential election only thirteen months away, the ten little Democrats are not the only ones running. President Bush is also cranking up for the race, and soon we can expect to hear from him and his surrogates how much of the black vote they expect to win next year. In the last election,... Read More
With California's Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante now leading in the polls to be the state's next governor, the silence about his anti-white past is thunderous. Neither the mainstream press nor his comrades in the Democratic Party nor even most of his rivals in the election have mentioned it. As for the professional witch hunters of... Read More
The big question among American Hispanics these days is not whichparty they should vote for next year or which candidate to support inCalifornia next month but rather what they should call themselves—Hispanics or Latinos? Last week the Washington Post devoted a long front page story to this burning issue, and the reasons why the latter... Read More
With a Hispanic majority emerging in the near future of California and other western states (not to mention the entire country), it's high time the emerging white minority learned its proper place in the New America, and the Bush-Ashcroft Justice Department is on the scene to help them learn it. Last week the Los Angeles... Read More
Where exactly is it engraved in stone that blacks are the only people who get to be victims of white racial oppression? While many blacks are bellyaching about reparations for slavery, Hispanics in California have finally tumbled to the same racket. And why not? Since whites and their political and cultural leaders refuse to defend... Read More
It probably occurs to very few Americans that when they visit an ATM machine or put together some gadget bought at K-Mart or Wal-Mart,they are witnessing the cultural disintegration of their own country. The reason is that ATM machines and the assembly instructions for most mass-marketed products now come in at least two, maybe more,... Read More
One of the underestimated benefits of mass immigration, the Open Borders Lobby likes to tell us, is that it imparts a fascinating diversity to an otherwise drab, boring, and tedious white Anglo-Saxon civilization. You probably could not have fooled William Shakespeare with that argument, but it seems to work well enough on many Republicans. In... Read More
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a left-wing outfit in Montgomery, Alabama, which specializes in snooping out "right-wing extremists," "white supremacists," Confederate flag-wavers and similar thought criminals. But when it's not engaged in its highly profitable witch-hunting (assets of $68 million at last count) against people it disagrees with, it's pushing a school program called... Read More
One of the chief reasons for the quick and dirty defenestration of Trent Lott as Senate Majority Leader was to induce more black voters to cast their ballots for Republicans. To that end, President Bush went so far as to issue a "Happy Kwanzaa" greeting from the White House and this week was preaching on... Read More
It probably tells you something significant about our immigration policy that the question whether the immigrants are assimilating or not remains controversial. If lots of Americans think they are assimilating and lots of others think they're not, it's probably a safe bet that they're not. Now a new survey gives a perfectly clear answer to... Read More
If it's a "hate crime" you're looking for, the New York Times seems to have found a few in West Hollywood, California. There, the paper reported last week, a homosexual was attacked and beaten by two men who wielded a baseball bat and a metal pipe. Two other homosexuals were attacked earlier in the same... Read More
Given a choice between having public schools named after George Washington and having Speedy Gonzales cartoons on television, I'dprobably take the former, but then no one has bothered to ask me about either one. Indeed, no one at the Atlanta-based and Ted Turner-owned Cartoon Network seemed to have asked much of anyone about removing the... Read More
The unspoken assumption, shared by Democrats and Republicans, most liberals and most conservatives, behind President Bush's amnesty/guest worker plan to grant legal residency to 3 million illegal aliens from Mexico is that the Mexican and Hispanic vote is important. No one on either side of the political and ideological divide even pretends it's not politics... Read More
Figuring It Out
As the Rio Grande flows ever more northward, and Spanish grows common on the streets of America, and tacos appear in the lunch counters of high schools along with the usual inedible fare, people worry that "the minorities" may one day be in the majority, and band together against whites. I wouldn't bet on it.... Read More
Letter to the Editor
Samuel Francis (Principalities & Powers, April 2000) is correct in much of his analysis of the weaknesses of Gov. George W. Bush's political strategy for attracting Hispanic votes. He is also correct in debunking the endlessly repeated canard that Bush won 49 percent (rather than 39 percent) of the Texas Hispanic vote in his successful... Read More
With both George W. Bush and Al Gore running around the country gobbling tacos and jabbering in pidgin Spanish, the 2000 presidential race is beginning to look more like a Cisco Kid rerun than an American election. The reason for all the pandering to Hispanics is that one of the common assumptions of both parties... Read More
Reflections on the Hispanic Arrival
Regarding the enormous influx of Hispanics into the United States through Mexico, a few disordered and chaotic thoughts: To begin with, why does it get so little attention? The flow across the border is huge, 1066 by inadvertence, resembling the movement of the Germanic people into the Roman Empire in the fourth and fifth centuries.... Read More
