Michael S suggests rather than an electorally unified and active black population directing the Democrat party, the DNC tells blacks what to believe and they believe it: It brings to mind the plantation analogy white conservatives love hearing non-Democrat blacks talk about. There could be some truth to it, though as Michael allows it doesn't... Read More
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson are going the way of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis: The question included a "not sure" response. It was selected by 22% of those surveyed, so these figures are conservative estimates of deconstruction sentiments . Only 25% of blacks definitively oppose the statues being removed. In the...

- When the state says there is nothing to worry about, assume panic behind the scenes: Turns out the problem of police snuffing out blacks isn't as serious a threat to black lives as black-on-black violence is. Nationwide, the police kill around 250 blacks each year. Civilian blacks, by comparison, kill ten times as many... Read More
When middle America became restless over the forever lock downs, breathless admonitions about the coronavirus catastrophe about to brought down on the country showed up in every article the corporate media put out, on the timelines of all the blue checkmarks, and in the public pronouncements of the legions of stern-faced labcoats. When protests and... Read More
Defunding oppressive cops, protests against perceived brutality, five-fingered discounts, cities on fire, the formation of autonomous zones, BLM's corporate cashout putting Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push Coalition to shame, and the shameless cultural appropriation of corrupt geriatrics haven't been enough to turn reparations into a popular cause, at least not yet. "Not sure" responses, constituting 22%... Read More
Taken from the beginning of America's third great religious revival, the percentages of GSS respondents, by race and also by political orientation among whites, who attribute blacks having "worse jobs, income, and housing than white people" at least in part "because most just don't have the motivation or willpower to pull themselves up out of...

Nearly a year ago, this audacious fool wrote: The Harris Hawk is a majestic bird. There's nothing majestic about the Harris Crow, though--and it tastes terrible. That said, the path I predicted Harris would follow to victory has not proven impassable. It remains open, but it turns out Biden is going to be the one... Read More
The following table and map show estimated mean black IQ by state from 2019 NAEP mathematics and reading results among non-Hispanic black eighth grade public school students. Estimates are computed by averaging mathematics and reading scores and then converting them to IQ scores assuming a national average IQ of 96 and a standard deviation of... Read More
There is some evidence that support for Trump appears to be stronger among younger blacks than among older ones. To the extent that is true, though, it does not appear to be carrying over to the GOP more broadly. From GoToQuiz.com, self-identified partisan affiliation among American blacks, by age, in a two-option format (Republican or... Read More
An absolute immigration moratorium and reparations for American blacks and American Indians who are verifiably able to prove they are at least third-generation in residency, with a sunset provision that takes effect in twenty years if and only if the official poverty rate is under 10.0%. The annual reparation amount per eligible adult is $1,000... Read More
Candace Owens, in true millennial form, calls white privilege a myth: Imagine if a white male actor faked a hate crime against himself by pretending black men attacked him in the middle of the night— then was subsequently acquitted of all charges. #JussieSmollett is an utter perversion of justice who just DESTROYED the myth of...

The only reason there is a modest correlation between age and support for Donald Trump among men is because older generational cohorts are whiter than younger ones are. Once race is taken into account, the relationship vanishes among whites, is revealed to be weak among Hispanics and Asians, and acutely inverts among blacks and Jews.... Read More
From a SurveyUSA poll covering just California--likely the state presenting the best case in the country for how illegal immigration hurts blacks--the percentages of respondents who support the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border, by race ("not sure" responses, constituting 10% of the total, are excluded): The Old America alliance Trump tried for,...

I'm skeptical both of it potentially being a real phenomenon and of its general desirability, but the sample size is large and the trend is pretty clear, a trend that contrasts with that of whites. Trump's approval rating among blacks, by age, from an ongoing Reuters-Ipsos poll that commenced a month into his presidency ("mixed... Read More
They are incorrigible. There is no reformation, only destruction of legitimacy--theirs or ours. After total Narrative Collapse, the bloodthirsty lunatics tried to rally around this: The earlier footage of Native American veteran Nathan Phillips being mocked by Trump supporters is so much worse. — Waleed Shahid (@_waleedshahid) January 21, 2019 After over an hour of...

Blacks in America support open borders. They express less support for immigration restrictionism than even Hispanics or Jews do. It's a perennial fantasy that they're the biggest opponents of open borders on account of being the ones hurt by it the most. Libertarians get a lot a grief from us for thinking urban blacks are...

In response to the observation that self-identified political ideology is relatively unimportant in explaining black electoral behavior, tcjfs pointed to a paper suggesting that most blacks don't know what the labels "liberal" or "conservative" mean in an American political context. As a consequence, the political identity blacks assign themselves is random. They are reliably partisan,... Read More
Lynching is a dark and despicable aspect of our nation’s history. We must acknowledge that fact, lest we repeat it. Thank you to my colleagues for agreeing to unanimously pass our Justice for Victims of Lynching Act, and @CoryBooker and @SenatorTimScott for your partnership. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) December 19, 2018 This provides a nice...

Expounding on the marriage and gender (forgiveness please, vok3) gaps, it's pair-bonded huwhite men and women against the world, with unmarried white men on the fence: The male-female gaps, by race: White gentiles exhibiting the greatest amount of gender parity--who woulda thunk it?! Parenthetically is why the gender gap is played up relentlessly in the... Read More
A SurveyUSA poll on the upcoming gubernatorial election in Georgia asked respondents about who they planned on voting for and also about their opinions on eight policy questions. What jumps out immediately from the results is how much wider the racial disparity is on the question of who to vote for than it is on... Read More
The civic nationalists want to believe it. A part of me would like to believe it, too. I've mostly shed that part of myself over the last couple of years as it has become obvious that Trump's Authentic American (whites and blacks) vs Fake American (invaders) paradigm isn't going to materialize, but I'm a pragmatist....

Heartiste on Kanye West running off the plantation: Kanye has a huge following. Whether it presages a lasting shift in the sentiments of black men or is just a momentary blip, the initial movement is hard to ignore. For the week ending April 22nd, Trump's Reuters-Ipsos polling approval (with "mixed feelings" discounted) among black men... Read More
The following graph compares mean number of children, by intelligence as measured by Wordsum*, among whites (n = 13,492), among blacks (n = 3,858), and also among Mormons (n = 342). To avoid language fluency issues, only those born in the US are considered: This is astounding. Are Mormons the only group in the US... Read More
The prolific Feryl: Using the GSS and ISCO 2008 allows us to compare the responses of police officers (n = 119) and the general public to the question of why blacks have "worse jobs, income, and housing" than whites do. The survey offers four potential explanations and respondents are not limited to choosing just one.... Read More
The following graph comes from Reuters-Ipsos polling data on the question of how whites and blacks are perceived to be treated in "the community" and "at work". The residual percentages are that both races are treated equally. "Don't know/not applicable" responses are excluded (N = 3,065): Nearly four centuries on, blacks overwhelmingly feel as though...

- Gab Fam man BooksmartBaller wondered about differences in region (presumably among whites) with regards to how they feel about blacks. In 2002, the GSS asked respondents how "warm" or "cool" they felt towards multiple groups, including blacks. The higher the score, the cooler (ie less trusting of and more hostile towards) a region's whites... Read More
From a SurveyUSA poll conducted in the San Diego metro area on Trump intervening in China to pull the pampered thieves from UCLA out of the hot water they jumped into, we see an uncharacteristically strong level of support from a demographic group not generally favorable to him. The percentages, by race, who say Trump... Read More
Via Z-Man, more generational survey data to chew on. This one explicitly and almost exclusively focuses on race among those aged 18-34 (mostly millennials but also the leading edge of Gen Z), so I'll make a tl;dr series of observations on it here. - Cathy J. Cohen is the founder and principal investigator of the... Read More
From recently released FBI hate crime statistics, we find the number of white hate crime (HC) offenders declined by 3.0% from 2015 to 2016 while the number of black hate crime offenders grew by 15.2% over the same time period. Similarly, the number of anti-White hate crime incidents increased 14.9% between 2015 and 2016 while... Read More
Percentages, by race and sex, who report having experienced poor mental health--defined as "stress, depression, and problems with emotions"--in the month prior to being surveyed. All responses are from 2002 onward (N = 9,342): Contrary to the Narrative about putative low black self-esteem and the emotional burden that comes from doing "X while black", black... Read More
The following table shows the mean Wordsum score by demographics and by highest completed degree (n = 21,502): Education will never 'close the gap' because the width of said gap is pretty consistent across differing levels of educational attainment. We see, for example, that whites have about a full point advantage on blacks at every... Read More
A decade ago I did a series of posts showing, in short, that the "hate crime" designation is a way to get to bizarro world validate The Narrative, with designated victim classes actually looking like victims and designated oppressor classes actually looking like oppressors. The FBI hasn't yet released data on hate crimes for 2016,... Read More
A few observations while picking through the 2016 FBI crime statistics follow. AmRen has written most everything there is to be written about past iterations of these reports. Additionally, I'm hesitant to delve too deeply because of the infinitely frustrating fact that non-Hispanic whites are not broken down into separate offender categories. It's infinitely frustrating... Read More
The Nashville church shooting by a man named Emanuel Samson is obliterating The Narrative from every angle. It is the inverse of everything that the Dylann Roof shooting in Charleston in 2015--that provided cover to launch The Great Erasure against the American confederacy--was. - A black immigrant fatally shoots churchgoing white natives. - He is...

At least that's the implication from Hillary Clinton's new book (via Steve Sailer): The figure she cites checks out. What percentage of Democrats belong in that same basket of deplorables, you ask? A mere 35% of them is all. That's barely even one-third of Hillary's putative supporters! Most of her backers are still With Her.... Read More
Everything white Democrats need to know in four short video clips:
++Addition++New information on the killer's history: My insinuation of likely racial motivation for the murders is strengthened. My doubt that the killer will end up being charged with hate crimes is correspondingly weakened. It's unlikely you've heard about this. If not for living in the Kansas City metro area, I wouldn't have either. If the... Read More
The support distribution of high school students by race among those who voted for Republicans and among those who voted for Democrats according to the Hispanic Heritage Foundation's huge presidential primary poll conducted in 2016 follows. For example, the five columns above "white" in the first graph shows how white Republicans distributed their votes, the... Read More
More evidence supporting Ben Shapiro's assertion that skin color doesn't matter--it's ideology that does! Opinions of O.J. Simpson (n = 2,988): That black support for Simpson is more than three greater than white support for him has nothing to do with skin color per se. It's the consequence of an unfortunate belief--ideology, if you will--in... Read More
I didn't initially comment on the gay play in the park because, while I have nothing but admiration for Laura Loomer jumping on stage and stating the obvious, I've an aversion to the Hitlery Hitlery Hitlery approach that made the world aware of what happened. The DemsRRealRacists approach has been tried for decades, has failed... Read More
[If following this link from the Twitter post on scientific literacy, please see here] In his April Diary, the Derb brought up posts from the Inductivist (still relatively active here) and the Occidentalist concerning changes over time in the self-reported perceptions of why "on the average blacks have worse jobs, income, and housing than whites...

I'm doing a little work on a textbook. The publisher has free access to istockphoto.com, a service I hadn't previously heard of but provides images similar to the Shutterstock pictures you've probably seen included in various online articles and the like. I was looking for an image of a shoplifter for one of the modules... Read More
[This post was updated on 3/18 from its original publishing on 3/16 to include the addition of a few subgroups. Source data is here. Additional follow-up posts here and here.] In imitation of Steve Sailer's--epigone, after all!--detailed demographic breakdown of the 2012 presidential election with Romney and Obama going head-to-head, here's a less aesthetically appealing...

On the politics of grievance, Ryan Faulk writes: The Cathedral isn't going to relent in pushing the Narrative, even as advances in genetic science require its high priests to wield Occam's Butterknife in ever more elaborate ways. Badwhites, however, are increasingly refusing to play along. For three decades the GSS has asked respondents if they... Read More
Expounding on the average perceived differences in intelligence between blacks and whites, the following graph shows the mean score on a 7-point scale asking respondents separately if blacks and if whites "tend to be unintelligent or tend to be intelligent"--the higher the score the more intelligent members of each race are perceived to be--by selected...

Since 2000 the GSS has asked respondents, broken down by race, if whites and if blacks "tend to be unintelligent or tend to be intelligent", with answers on a 7-point scale, the higher the score the more intelligent the group is perceived to be. Because both questions have been paired every year they've been asked,... Read More
Pew's recurring quiz on current events, dubbed "News IQ", is an easy way to shiv haughty SWPLs who throw phrases like "ignorant Trump supporters" and "alternative facts" around. As is always the case, Republicans modestly outscored Democrats in the most recent iteration from a couple of years ago. Millennials outscored all other age cohorts on... Read More
Heartiste: Undoubtedly. Relatedly, that Trump's first-term inaugural turnout was smaller than Obama's isn't surprising given Obama's enormous home field advantage. The Imperial City is more hostile to Trump than any other place in the country is. Because validating stereotypes is the blog's raison d'etre, let's see if Heartiste's assertion does. Every year of the survey,... Read More
Stefan Molyneux's recent interview with John Wright focused in large part on liberal criminality relative to the conservative tendency to abide by the law. My immediate reaction was "racial confounding, this is why understanding HBD is imperative to understanding society". Yes, political orientation among blacks is less predictive of partisan affiliation than it is among... Read More
You've probably heard the argument that in the US black job applicants face discrimination in hiring even when their educational attainment is equal to that of competing white applicants. This Think Progress article from a couple of years ago is fairly typical but also notable in that it drills down into the assertion a bit... Read More
