From the New York Times opinion section: Remember, No One Is Coming to Save Us Eventually doctors will develop a coronavirus vaccine, but black people will continue to wait for a cure for racism. By Roxane Gay, Contributing Opinion Writer. May 30, 2020 After Donald Trump maligned the developing world in 2018, with the dismissive... Read More
One question is: How much do looters loot from each other? Do rioters have John Wick-type honor among thieves codes? Or is it just Hobbesian chaos out there? Here's video from the lovely Bay Area exurb of Walnut Creek: Or is the reason that this kind of footage has been fairly rare so far is... Read More
From TMZ Sports: Looks more like a woman or an adolescent boy to me.
Much like during the 1992 Rodney King riot in Los Angeles when armed Mexican gangs kept black looters out of East L.A., the Mexican Gangs in the Little Village neighborhood -- the Mexico of the Midwest -- on the West Side of Chicago are out in force driving off black would-be looters.
Mean tweets from foreign countries reflecting schadenfreude over America's current difficulties have been redefined as "foreign interference" with "American democracy." From Politico: Foreign foes taking advantage of divide over race, national security adviser says China is among the nations mentioned by Robert O’Brien.

During a 2016 Black Lives Matter riot that wreaked looting upon the shops of a black slum in Milwaukee, the sister of the man killed by the cops gave a memorable speech: * I.e., I have Good Hair. But in 2020, the rioters have taken the We Need Our Weaves lady's strategic insight to heart:... Read More
I presume she means Antifa, but if you are a Democratic politician, you probably aren't supposed to admit that Antifa even exists right now, so who knows?
It will be interesting to see how America's richest corporations navigate the tricky questions of how to reconcile social distancing, the right of Youth of Color to loot their favorite brands, and the sacred right of gays (more than a few of whom own or work in the looted shops) to party in public. But... Read More
From the NYT's news section: You might think the politicized pillaging going on at a high-end retailer near you might at least constitute a third crisis, but, sorry ... From the NYT's opinion section: Also from the NYT's opinion section: As long as you can keep straight in your head who are the designated Good... Read More
From the Roosevelt Institute, a couple of leftists try to explains the inexplicable: Rioting Mainly for Fun and Profit: The Neoconservative Origins of Our Police Problem BY MIKE KONCZAL / FRIDAY, 15 AUGUST 2014 / PUBLISHED IN BLOG, NEWS, RORTYBOMB Before it was anything else, the neoconservative movement was a theory of the urban crisis....

The Flight Club shoe store on Melrose Boulevard in West Hollywood got looted by The Protesters. The Flight Club, in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, specializes in extremely expensive versions of sneakers, such as the "just dropped" $295 "AIR JORDAN 4 RETRO "COURT PURPLE" and the $375 "YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN "TRIPLE BLACK,"" (Is...

The New York Times remains on script: these are protests, people, not ... not ... not, you know, the R-word. Once again, the New York Times uses the text string "protest" ten times on its homepage, versus the text string "riot" only once, in the headline for the column by their token hire to represent...

From the Washington Post: Officials blame outsiders for violence in Minnesota but contradict one another on who is responsible By Shane Harris May 30, 2020 at 5:39 p.m. PDT ... Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) told reporters he had no doubt that protests over Floyd’s death began with Minnesotans frustrated and outraged “with inequality, inequities... Read More
In Los Angeles, outside agitators who no doubt parachuted in from Vladivostok overnight demonstrate their honed commando teamwork:
In Chicago, Putin's spetsnaz infiltrators do a little undocumented shopping: I can remember when this Nike store on Chicago's Magnificent Mile opened around 1993, soon after the 1992 Rodney King Riot in L.A. and the sizable Michael Jordan Riot in June 1992 to celebrate the Bulls' second NBA title. Because it would, obviously, be the... Read More
This White Nationalist Russian Outside Agitator's arm got tired before he managed to punch a big enough hole in the window to get his hand in to unlock the doors!
From Fox9 in Minneapolis: 13% being out-of-staters isn't insignificant. I saw a tweet from somebody claiming they'd been at the Twin Cities airport on Thursday morning and lots of Antifa-looking people were getting off airplanes. I don't have proof of that, but it fits the general timeline: But the bigger issue is that after 3... Read More
Back in 2009, I tried some long term Machiavellian political strategizing: Sailer Strategy Supplement: Rebrand Democrats As The Black Party Steve Sailer 10/04/2009 On this reading, the Republican Party can't just have a positive strategy of attracting and mobilizing white voters. There has to be a supplementary tactic. Republicans must also drive voters away from... Read More
The rules of engagement are different in The Capital of the World where the Important People live than in flyover cities: The LAPD has also done good a job (at least so far) of keeping the rioters in check. Here in Los Angeles, the media orthodoxy is that the LAPD was racistly brutal in the... Read More
From Reuters: Sure, the quality would be higher than Frau Merkel's Million Marching Muslim Men Mob in 2015, but 2.9 million? Meanwhile, the Wall Street "There shall be open borders" Journal is trying to horn in on the action by demanding that Trump admit Hong Kongers (during a colossal depression with 10s of millions of... Read More
From Fox9 in Minneapolis: The video is pretty funny. Governor Walz just gets up to about 250 words per minute without appearing to have any idea how he's going to end his sentences. But at least he's not a conspiracy theorist! Also from Minneapolis:
It's very important to the manipulators of The Narrative to use the appropriate words for events. For example, are the events unfolding in many cities across America at present "protests" or "riots"? That's because American discourse has progressively dumbed down toward a childish emphasis on deciding ahead of time who are the Good Guys and... Read More
The lamest looters have to be the mob looting the Starbucks on Sixth Street in downtown Los Angeles. They've broken the windows and are now coming back out to show off their to the TV cameras their ill-gotten gains, such as a quart of milk. C'mon, people, don't you get it? Starbucks charges you a... Read More
Minneapolis's basic problem at the moment is that its political leadership, for fear of seeming racist, has conceded control to the mob: For a long term view, iSteve commenter Reg Cæsar says By the way, how much of the current rioting is related to letting so many "nonviolent" criminals out of jails and prisons due...

Here is the direction the Conventional Wisdom is drifting at present: Due to centuries of White Privilege, blacks from now on should enjoy the privilege of resisting arrest if they really don't feel like being arrested. This is not to say that no black should ever be arrested, just that, in the ultimate analysis, black... Read More
You know and I know that a big chunk of Minneapolis was subjected to black looters and white Antifa terrorists on Wednesday and Thursday, but that's not the point, the point is The Narrative and The Megaphone-wielders aren't going to be knocked off stride by a few hundred hours of lurid video. From the Los... Read More
iSteve commenter Dave Pinsen writes:
In St. Francis De Sales elementary school's 1970 production of Oliver!, when I was in 6th grade, I made my one and only stage appearance as Oliver Twist's grandfather, Mr. Brownlow, utilizing my sole performing talent, tallness. During the rehearsals, I overheard a conversation between the teacher who was directing and a parent. Mr. Galli... Read More
Senator Tom Cotton (which I don't believe is a real name -- it sounds like a more on-the-nose version of "Jim Crow") argues that Chinese grad students should only be allowed to come to America to study non-STEM subjects like Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers, as if that's what non-STEM grad school consists of these...

From The Guardian opinion section: The ‘what about the children’ question is compelling but it is a straw man The best I can do for remote communities is to do my job as a writer and hope to change the way people think Claire Coleman for IndigenousX Claire G. Coleman is a Wirlomin Noongar woman... Read More
From the New York Times opinion columnist Charles Blow: How White Women Use Themselves as Instruments of Terror There are too many noosed necks, charred bodies and drowned souls for them to deny knowing precisely what they are doing. By Charles M. Blow, Opinion Columnist, May 27, 2020, 10:11 p.m. ET At a time of... Read More
My new Taki's Magazine column starts: And just to validate my perception yet again, the New York Times opinion page today features: Lockdown Taught Me to Care for My Natural Hair After years of ignoring and being ashamed of my hair, the coronavirus pandemic is forcing me to reassess our relationship. By Maya Phillips Ms.... Read More
From the Associated Press (alternative universe):
And in Los Angeles: Black Lives Matter is back! And just in time for Trump's re-election campaign.
From the New York Times opinion page: I Have Not Missed the Amy Coopers of the World The video of a white woman threatening a black man in Central Park illustrates exactly why I’m so relieved to be spending more time inside. By Ernest Owens Mr. Owens is a journalist. May 26, 2020 During a... Read More
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Opinion journalism in the respectable outlets has increasingly come to be dominated during the Great Awokening of the past half-dozen years by young Women of Color with soft major degrees who take whatever topic is in the news—global pandemic, Ukrainegate impeachment, a tribal elder being smirked at—and relate...

It's perfectly reasonable to want fewer incidents of white women calling the cops on innocent black men (Type I errors), so long as you are willing to accept more incidents of violence against white women by guilty black men (Type II errors). If Kitty Genovese were attacked by Winston Moseley in 2020 instead of 1964,... Read More
Liz, I understand you are a True Believer in everything you've been told by your fellow Social Justice Jihadis, but you really shouldn't murder your future black patients with bad medical care just to prove your political correctness. In reality, the people you trust were yanking your chain about how race doesn't biologically exist, while... Read More
Here's the top story on the BBC, which, last I checked, is in London: This is international news, people! Shouldn't America just hurry up and pass a Constitutional Amendment saying no white woman can ever call the cops on a black man? The whole world is watching! When Marshall McLuhan back in the 60s talked... Read More
Another effort to fool the public with an obvious super-telephoto lens shot that compresses distance. You can tell by how it constantly appears that the pedestrians are about to carom into each other, but they never do. Plus the store signs look like the Old City of Kowloon and the white streetlights appear to be... Read More
