Earlier by Lance Welton: Do You Know All Coronavirus Victims Appear To Be Chinese? Thought Not!

The British Royal Family is in crisis. Less than two years after marrying Meghan Markle, the brother of the future king has ceased to be royal. And it’s got everything to do with “race.” Even Alt-Lite commentators such as Sargon of Akkad agree that the problem is Meghan Markle’s flawed character. But what Sargon fails... Read More
See also R1b—Gene Of Modern Civilization (And Red Hair) There seems to be a negative relationship between our growing knowledge of human genetics, and the extent to which we are allowed to publicly say that genetic differences between ethnic groups exist and matter.

Scientific fraud—falsifying scientific data or manipulating the scientific evaluation process—has become a serious problem. At best, it is a threat to public confidence in science. At worst, if the fraud is not revealed, then public policy could be shaped by bogus data. This problem is universal. But there are distinct national patterns. In particular, fraud... Read More
Increasingly, social science is dominated by Leftist ideologues who use the remaining respect that academia still has among the public to inculcate students and public alike with their equalitarian dogmas. But there are honorable exceptions. One of these: Peter Turchin, a Russian who is professor of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut. Turchin, who... Read More

During World War I, seven of the medical schools attached to the University of London decided to start admitting female students, as did Oxford and Edinburgh University. But by 1928, five of these London colleges had decided to stop admitting women, with the other two heavily restricting female numbers. Oxford voted for a ratio of... Read More

When will environmental determinists and science deniers finally admit that they’ve lost the argument? The evidence that there are black-white differences in IQ and that these are partly genetic in origin is overwhelming. A significant contribution has been made by Richard Lynn, who has been published on VDARE.com. Nevertheless, a race-denial article published late last... Read More

I’ve noted recently that there seems to be a certain “type” leading the anti-science, anti-Truth shock troops into battle: Ben van der Merwe, Adam Rutherford, Jess Wade and Susan Goldberg. They are members of ethnic minorities. They are from privileged backgrounds. But despite attendance at superb and usually private schools, they have failed to attend... Read More

The anti-science Left has a problem. Despite all their intimidation, sometimes the academic peer-review process works properly. Compelling studies are published even though the challenge aspects of the Left’s worldview. This is exactly what happened recently: A study by Russian scientists in the prestigious journal Scientific Reports suggested that part of the explanation for Climate... Read More

Founded in 1888 as the journal of the National Geographic Society, National Geographic took on its current photography-heavy, serious travel magazine style in 1905. But even though its stated purpose during the Cold War was to provide as balanced a view as possible of life behind the Iron Curtain, the magazine was never openly Leftist—until... Read More
Richard Lynn, now 89, is known for his research into national and race differences in average intelligence, having relatively recently published the most comprehensive and up-to-date book available on national differences in IQ. But although ethnic and racial differences in intelligence explain quite a lot, they still leave some phenomena not quite making sense. Lynn... Read More

See, earlier, from 2007: Charles Murray's "Jewish Genius", by Steve Sailer The Left’s attitude to IQ epitomizes its irrational, contradictory, self-serving, anti-science world view.

Lesbianism, or at least being “queer,” is currently fashionable among celebrityfemales. Madonna, Britney Spears and Ariana Grande all use “hints” of—non-exclusive—lesbianism to “titillate” their fans.(Madonna and Britney are pictured above at the 2003 MTV Music Awards. ) The wannabe-edgy Miley Cyrus, who is married to a man, has referred to herself as “queer” because she’s...

Social Justice Warriors are obsessed with words. They instinctively understand that words aren’t just a means to communicate: they are thinking-tools—a way of expressing your individual and group identity. Political Correctness, in policing language, attempts to police people. It reduces their individuality, forces them to outwardly conform to the Multicultural Cult through speech, breaks their...

Above, Gillette, which has been attacking toxic masculinity, previously appealed to normal male feelings with \"grid girls\". (Hat tip, Larry Elder.)
Masculinity is under attack. The American Psychological Association was long ago taken over by the Left, so the APA’s bizarre recent guidelines claiming that “Traditional Masculinity” is psychologically harmful to males and implying that by males should be encouraged to be feminine, shouldn’t be that much of a surprise [Psychologists call ‘traditional masculinity’ harmful, face...

Three months before President Trump was elected, a meme appeared on social media calling for Queen Elizabeth to overrule the Declaration of Independence and “Make America Great Britain Again,” as this was surely preferable to allowing The Donald to become the US head of state.

It’s not a shock that Postmodernism has taken hold of subjects such as Literature or Social Anthropology. The more subjective the subject is, the easier it is for ideology to infiltrate it.
