According to the national media, such as Slate and the New York Times, America is plagued in 2018 by Beckys wielding their White Privilege to call the authorities on People of Color. At last, one PoC has stood up to the Becky Menace and taken action with righteous wrath! From the Des Moines Register: Mollie... Read More
From Slate: Clearly, it's racist to try to get the world's first trillion dollar corporation to live up to its promises to you. Ask Tim Cook. He'll tell you that white women with children who spent extra money to buy an Apple product should think about their White Privilege instead of hassling Apple. In the... Read More
iSteve file photo of typical rural residents From the New York Times: Body Believed to Be That of Mollie Tibbetts, Iowa College Student, Is Found By Christina Caron and Melissa Gomez Aug. 21, 2018 A body believed to be that of Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old student at the University of Iowa who vanished a month...

This whole story about aged starlet Asia Argento, involving #MeToo, Harvey Weinstein, JT Leroy, and Anthony Bourdain's suicide, sounds like it was custom-made to support my call for banning child actors * when it becomes possible in the near future to replace them economically with CGI, the way no actual apes were used in the...

From the Financial Times: Africa cannot count on a demographic dividend Population growth will not necessarily translate into rising living standards DAVID PILLING Add to myFT David Pilling AUGUST 16, 2018 ... If you asked people to identify the most important trends shaping the world, many would name climate change, the rise of China, the... Read More
I'm familiar with the names of more social science professors than most people, but I'd never heard of "male feminist" sociologist Michael Kimmel. But apparently he's a tireless self-promoter and big deal in Gender Studies, about as big a deal as a straight white man can get. But now he's been Me Tooed by a... Read More
From the Daily Mail: That reminds me: I ran out of photos of myself for the August fundraiser, so I haven't mentioned it lately. I could get my picture taken anew, but that would involve getting my hair cut which sounds like it would involve not blogging. Fortunately, now there's a video. Here are seven... Read More
One little-remarked change over the decades has been the growing shamelessness of special pleading by immigrants. They're barely even trying anymore to phrase arguments in anything other than Us Good, You Bad, We Deserve Your Money terms. For example, from the New York Times opinion page: Maybe the capitalists who own the Chinese restaurants should
The New York Times is going to keep running opeds on how the wave of shootings in Chicago since the triumph over the cops of BLM in November 2015 are the fault of the Usual Suspects (cops, white supremacy, white men, Trump, systemic racism, etc etc) until somebody comes up with a semi-persuasive sounding one....

Here's an upcoming study that appears to implement part of a research design I recommended back in the previous decade when writing about Affordable Family Formation and the Dirt Gap. In the six months following the 2004 presidential election, I put forward a number of interrelated theories about the roots of the question of the... Read More
From The Guardian: Also from The Guardian: How much of today's dominant intellectual/political climate is just petty individual resentments inflated into Systems of Thought?
From Salon: “BlacKkKlansman” and white women: Spike Lee’s new film indicts their investment in white supremacy From legal slavery to now, white women have always participated in white nationalist violence in many forms RACHEL LEAH AUGUST 10, 2018 11:00PM (UTC) The new Spike Lee-directed film "BlacKkKlansman" begins with a scene from the 1939 film "Gone...

From WTKR: Commenter Black Sea reminisces: Not a lot taller than Sammy Davis Jr., evidently. And let that be a lesson to us all.
From the New York Times: Pay careful attention: this is the good kind of family separation, not the bad kind. A 14-year-old leaving his family behind and getting killed delivering for a Brooklyn restaurant is what is finally making America great. Just ask Gov. Cuomo. He'll tell you. He did not continue his schooling in... Read More
NYT restaurant reviewer on his previous trip to London, c. 2008 From the New York Times:
From the Boston Globe: Not, of course, as much of a contribution as that made by my ancestors' descendants, such as, to pick a random example, me, Prof. Alan M. Dershowit
From The Guardian: I thought legalizing marijuana in California was supposed to reduce violence in Mexico? The Baja California border is only a few hours drive from the 20 million people of Southern California, so it could be an immensely profitable tourist and second home area, especially because rich people along California's coast connive like...

From Harper's Bazaar, a ladies' fashion magazine: When Feminism Is White Supremacy in Heels From tone policing to whitesplaining, the liberal white women's feminism is more toxic than they realize, explains Rachel Cargle. By Rachel Elizabeth Cargle Aug 16, 2018 When I heard about the tragic murder of 18-year-old Nia Wilson, who was stabbed to... Read More
In case you were wondering whether the tyrannical Trump Administration has yet managed to deport mortgage fraud felon Ravi Ragbir (convicted of 7 counts of wire fraud in 2000 and his appeal was shot down by Judge Maryanne Trump Barry 16 years ago) back to Trinidad, from the Washington Post today: Uh ... His appeal... Read More
From the Brookings Institution: And here's One Fact Not to Know: Africa. In this article on world population, the text string "Africa" never appears. The "global dangers" posed by "Egypt's population boom" are singled out, but the vast African population boom goes unmentioned.
From The Atlantic, which was founded in 1857 by Francis H. Underwood, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Greenleaf Whittier, and James Russell Lowell: Black women used to be enterprising about their hair. The first black millionaire in America, male or female, was Madame CJ Walker, who... Read More
In the New York Review of Books, white environmentalist Bill McKibben realizes that the Democratic Party is not interested in conserving guys like him, and thinks that -- environment be damned -- is sort of great: The people who most have to breathe the fumes from refineries are the people who work there and they...

From the NYT Opinion page: This would have been a cutting edge column in 1978. In 2018, it's awfully ho-hum. In the 21st Century, Denmark has taken the lead in preserving its welfare state by resisting demographic inundation from the Third World. Yet, I don't see the text string "migra" anywhere in Dr. Krugman's column,... Read More
From Foreign Policy: Botched CIA Communications System Helped Blow Cover of Chinese Agents The number of informants executed in the debacle is higher than initially thought. BY ZACH DORFMAN | AUGUST 15, 2018, 5:13 PM It was considered one of the CIA’s worst failures in decades: Over a two-year period starting in late 2010, Chinese... Read More
From The Daily Beast: Who knew 7000 BC was the Middle Ages? “It's rather difficult to find a ‘pure white’ utopia anytime in the pre-modern, let alone ancient historical records,” she said.
The New York Times gets around to one of my recent topics: The Democrats are their party. ... She is the party’s most formidable fund-raiser, and her aides say she has sturdy support from a majority of House Democrats who credit her with ushering in the policies on health care and business regulation that Republicans...

A reader writes: A painting metaphorically describing English intellectual life in the 1660s:
From MetroTimes in Detroit: It's important to be sensitive to the gender of your racial slurs and "the ching-chong" to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday's election. She's also said to have called one of Chang's campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”... Read More
Recently, I implied that the letter "How Can I Cure My White Guilt?" from "Whitey" to the New York Times' advice columnists Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond might have been a hoax, even though the well-known authors took it extremely seriously. But now Titania McGrath has stepped forth to state that [pronoun unspecified] is not... Read More
Melbourne, Australia now has an "African gangs" problems because it's the Current Year so of course Melbourne has an African gangs problem. Why wouldn't it? It would be racist for Melbourne not to be plagued by black muggers. In fact, according to the Australian Establishment, Melbourne has two African gangs problems: the African gangs of... Read More
iSteve commenter Anon (a.k.a., Titles in Caps, etc etc) summarizes Spike Lee, whose latest movie, the celebrated but fairly terrible BlacKkKlansman, I reviewed in Taki's this week. Spike is one of those 1980s figures like Oliver Stone who remain of interest to guys of a certain age, like me and Anon. I’ll give one compliment... Read More
From Pew Research Center, March 21, 2018. The current population of Nigeria is about 195 million. So, 74% is about 145 million who want to migrate. The UN projects Nigeria's population in 2100 to be 794 million. So, 74% of 794 million is, like, a lot. And that's one country. Shouldn't we be having a,... Read More
From my new column in Taki's Magazine, my review of Spike Lee's acclaimed film BlacKkKlansman: Read the whole thing there. For compare and contrast purposes, here is the trailer for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman: And here is the trailer for Malcolm D. Lee's Undercover Brother
Thank you very much to everybody who has so far donated to my iSteve August fundraising drive. As you can see from all the posts since I started this campaign, I've been much encouraged by the response, both monetary and intellectual (yesterday saw 1,133 comments published). Here are seven ways for you to contribute to... Read More
With "classical liberalism" suddenly fashionable as an ideological self-designation among Never Trumpers, Gregory Clark takes a look at the historical record back when Classical Liberalism was triumphant in the British Parliament. From Cliometrica: My impression is that the sins of the Classical Liberals were fairly well exposed in 1960s popular culture, such as the 1968.... Read More
From the NYT advice column: Cheryl Strayed, author of the backpacking memoir Wild, was played by Reese Witherspoon in the 2014 movie adaptation. Steve Almond has published ten books. Aug. 14, 2018 Dear Sugars, I’m riddled with shame. White shame. This isn’t helpful to me or to anyone, especially people of color. I feel like... Read More
Gov. Jeff Colyer deserves thanks for not demanding a divisive recount even though the election was very close.
From the New York Times news section: So what did the study find out about how safe white boys feel in neighborhoods that are blacker than the ones they ordinarily inhabit? They did ask, didn't they? But doesn't Raj Chetty keep telling us that we must move black youths from segregated places far from all... Read More
One reason the Democrats keep ancient warhorses like Nancy Pelosi around is to forestall the Diverse Party's upcoming internal war of all against all over who gets the spoils. Now, elderly black Congressional leader Jim Clyburn is putting himself forward as a potential Speaker of the House, cleverly positioning himself as reassuring to non-blacks as... Read More
From Politico: Stephen Miller Is an Immigration Hypocrite. I Know Because I’m His Uncle. If my nephew’s ideas on immigration had been in force a century ago, our family would have been wiped out. By DAVID S. GLOSSER August 13, 2018 Let me tell you a story about Stephen Miller and chain migration. It begins... Read More
From The American Spectator: A Most Expected Backlash SCOTT MCKAY August 10, 2018, 1:34 am The Left might not have counted on ordinary Americans not buying their narratives. There is an essential read by Steve Sailer at Taki’s Magazine from a week ago which might well explain the cultural and political landscape better than anything... Read More
From The Guardian:
I keep reading in the Washington Post about how Trump is a corrupt tyrant oppressing his enemies. And yet ... Trump's net worth keeps going down while the Washington Post's owner, Jeff Bezos, now the richest man in the world, has been making money faster during the Trump years than just about anybody in the...

From The Atlantic: The Next Populist Revolution Will Be Latino Democrats are betting on a diversifying electorate to secure their party’s future, but second-generation Latinos won’t willingly accept a deeply unequal society. REIHAN SALAM SEPTEMBER 2018 ISSUE Immerse yourself in the pro-immigration literature of Democratic Party thinkers, and you will notice a curious pattern of... Read More
As I've mentioned before, one of the most criminally understudied mental/physical wellbeing problems in the United States today is how the first semester away at college is often a disaster for freshmen, especially coeds. Tom Wolfe's "I Am Charlotte Simmons" documents this downward spiral in excruciating detail, but universities haven't been all that enthusiastic about... Read More
From the New York Times Magazine: Let me guess ... For example, here's a "perfectly rational" mob: As the revolutionary Trotsky said in demanding the socialization of agriculture, a policy the revolutionary Stalin later adopted with, shall we say, revolutionary results: Hess goes on to explain that there are good revolutionary mobs and bad far... Read More
Continuing with the windmill theme, thanks to all who have so far contributed to my iSteve August fundraising drive. The last such post was initially a big success, but then it got buried under all my new posts and so quickly got lost. I'll try not to post so much. Here are seven ways for... Read More
The famous leftist geneticist Richard Lewontin reminisces about team teaching at Harvard with the even more publicly influential leftist paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould in an interview with David Sloan Wilson (hat tip to philosopher @NSesardic): Stephen Jay Gould brought a Marxist perspective to the study of the fossil record. Instead of seeing steady evolution of... Read More
I'm fascinated that 1/3rd of Latino women think they are "strong enough to beat most people in a fist-fight" versus a little over 1/8th of white women.
