From the NYT:
I was wondering whether Amy Harmon's article in the NYT about how scientists are too reluctant to debunk "race realism" because reasons TBA was an epic troll job or sincere. Now, in the NYT Insider section, she says it was heartfelt, or headfelt. She did it For The Children: Italics and bold mine. ... Yet... Read More
From the New York Times: In other words, buy Carl's book! I reviewed Carl's She Has Her Mother's Laugh earlier this year in Taki's. Carl is very mad about these fractions, but will he tell us what
From the New York Times opinion section, yet another essay by a woman on the joys of hate (as long as the Hated are below her in the intersectional pecking order to ensure that she is Punching Up): This is a hilariously representative Current Year op-ed in which a woman writer explains why she hates...

From National Geographic: Building walls may have allowed civilization to flourish Humans have built walls to keep others out, or in, for at least 12,000 years. Why is wall building coming back into fashion now? BY SIMON WORRALL PUBLISHED OCTOBER 5, 2018 If it is ever built, President Donald Trump’s much-vaunted wall, which is supposed... Read More
Baseball as a spectator sport has a problem due to sabermetrics' emphasis on the Three True Outcomes: home run, walk, and strikeout, as opposed to old fashioned elements of the game like the one base hit, the stolen base, the sacrifice bunt, the hit and run and so forth. Amateur statistical experts demonstrated in the... Read More
There was a fun controversial play in last night's baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros in the American League championship series involving two of the best and shortest players in baseball. The Astros' Jose Altuve, last year's MVP, hit a long flyball that was coming down in the stands. The... Read More
From the NYT Opinion section: I realize I am a horrible extremist, unlike the folks who pronounce so confidently in the New York Times, but it would seem to me that DNA can tell us some things about human identity, which is an interestingly complex subject. For example, Honolulu preppy Barack Obama may well have... Read More
Pnin is calculating that if Harvard simply selected admittees randomly among the top 10% of its applicants (as measured on test scores and high school GPA) then - the Asian share at Harvard would rise from 24.9% to 51.7%, - the white share would drop slightly from 37.6% to 35.5%, - the Hispanic share would...

Asians continue to pull away from the field in college admissions tests, while American Indian well-being appears to be collapsing in recent years. Otherwise, nothing much ever changes in racial average test scores.
From The New Yorker: First generation testing services had an amusing knack for reporting Ashkenazi Jews as part American Indian: famously, Larry David was declared to be 3/8ths Native American in 2009, which sounds like a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode, but actually happened. But they've gotten a lot more competent over the years. ... The... Read More
From the New York Times today: One of the many HateGraphs published in the NYT today to show how evil white supremacists are using facts, logic, and science. I will put in bold all words like "misconception" and "distortion" so you can know what is Goodth
The brilliant term "Fauxcohontas" appears to have been coined by Mark Steyn around May 4, 2012. But you'll notice that Donald Trump didn't use this multilingual neologism, instead reverting to the more straightforward "Pocohontas." Now somebody (who?) has come up with the great "Picohontas." My guess is that Trump will never, ever use "Picohontas." This... Read More
NFL QB Sam Bradford when he was at Putnam City HS in Oklahoma City, along with his parents. Bradford is 1/16th Cherokee and his father, who also played football for the U. of Oklahoma, is 1/8th Cherokee. There seems to be a lot of confusion over just how American Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren is compared... Read More
In her new book Not All Dead White Men, woke classicist Donna Zuckerberg denounces Pick-Up Artists Roosh V and Roissy for reading Ovid's Art of Love for tips. But is real target of her ire her brother Mark Zuckerberg's obsession with the Emperor Augustus? From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing... Read More
Or maybe Don't Believe Beckys! Also Abolish All False Positives by ignoring potential costs (such as death, rape, and robbery) of False Negatives.
Tariq Nasheed is right. From the Washington Post in 2011:
In a surprise announcement this afternoon, Senator Elizabeth Warren was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine / physiology for dispelling decades of "Race is just a social construct" obfuscations by demonstrating that race is a scientific biological reality that can increasingly be measured down to tiny fractions. The citation lauds Senator Warren for her breakthrough... Read More
I am looking forward to the rebound controversy tomorrow in which the Prestige Media takes Trump's bait and runs stories denouncing Trump for LYING that Senator Elizabeth Warren is only 1/1000th American Indian when the Settled Science suggests she is actually more likely 1/256th American Indian. In his recent memoir of working for Richard Nixon... Read More
From CNN: Senator Warren had her DNA analyzed not by the usual commercial testing services but by a Stanford professor, Carlos Bustamante, who writes: If I'm doing the arithmetic correctly, eight generations is 1/256th or 0.4% Native American. Eight generations ago would be a single great-great-great-great-great-great grandparent. Am I doing the math right, or is... Read More
From the New York Times today: I wrote in VDARE in 2009: No states have been added to the Union in a half century. But the issue dominated American politics in the 40 years preceding the Civil War. And it's likely to emerge again. The Democrats have solid reasons to promote Washington D.C. and/or Puerto... Read More
This genre of anecdote won Ta-Nehisi Coates a $625,000 MacArthur Genius Grant for his tale of an Upper West Side white lady who was mean to his son on an escalator. I'm sure your $625,000 will be along shortly, too, @gabrielsherman. Oh, wait, you're not black, so nobody cares. Never mind. By the way, that... Read More
Victoria Bissell Brown, retired Grinnell history professor and author of Washington Post op-ed "Thanks for not raping us, all you ‘good men.’ But it’s not enough," is almost certainly the daughter of the late character actor Whit Bissell (1909-1996). Most references to him mention that one of his daughters is named "Victoria Brown" and her... Read More
With a lot of talk today about the apparent mental health crisis afflicting left of center women, it's worth noting that masculine men who suddenly decide they are women late in life are usually right of center. For example, in today's Washington Post: Giselle Donnelly can finally be herself By Josh Rogin Columnist October 12... Read More
Tinder is a popular smartphone dating app for heterosexuals modeled upon the earlier gay male app Grindr. The notion that imposing a male homosexual approach upon how heterosexuals meet the opposite sex could be bad for the happiness of heterosexuals is of course inconceivable! (But it also sounds pretty plausible.)
Below I posted excerpts from a remarkable Washington Post op-ed by Victoria Bissell Brown, a retired professor of history, about all the rage she's venting at her poor husband of 50 years and how her overwhelming anger has something to do with Kavanaugh or Trump or Republicans or men or whatever. I researched a little... Read More
From the Washington Post opinion section: Grinnell College in rural Iowa is one of the highest paying liberal arts colleges in the world (especially when adjusted for the low cost of living) due to Grinnell's endowment benefiting from some good investment advice from Robert Noyce, co-founder of Intel, and Warren Buffett. Professor Bissell Brown is... Read More
From the Daily Mail: $1.3 million might buy you Christine Blasey Ford's garage in Palo Alto, but it gets you quite a house in upstate New York. In contrast, here are some reviews from Trip Advisor of the nearby Crest Inn motel that is owned and managed by the Hussains (thanks to commenter Craig Nelsen):... Read More
Law enforcement investigators have recently begun to solve old cold cases by tracking down criminals via their relatives' DNA. From the New York Times: I'm too lazy to check the arithmetic on that number. If you want to: assume a stable replacement rate of two children per generation for ease of calculation. The complication is... Read More
Despite all the incentives to dig up some proof that Christine Blasey Ford was telling the truth, has any additional evidence in her support been discovered over the last week? I searched on Google News and Google told me the biggest news story right now on the topic of "Christine Blasey Ford" is: So I... Read More
From the New York Post: Flatbush is an integrated neighborhood in Brooklyn on the far side of Prospect Park from ultra-gentrified Park Slope. I stayed there briefly last summer. If you want a vision of the future, imagine a #Becky demanding police #BelieveWomen that a 9-year-old black boy touched her butt and an angry black... Read More
The Cato Award goes to ... Shahed Hussain! For his efforts above and beyond the call of duty to boost the average number of businesses per immigrant. From the Poughkeepsie Journal: One immigrant, four companies! That's the American Dream. The Cato Institute also wishes to congratulate Mr. Hussain for not letting pesky government safety regulations... Read More
From Insurance Journal: Originally, the Federal Aviation Administration was supposed to investigate airline crashes, but it was also supposed to promote the air travel industry. So the FAA crash investigations tended to bring back conclusions like "Pilot error: lack of The Right Stuff" or "Just one of those things, you know, whaddaya whaddaya?" As a... Read More
From the Albany Times Union: Anyway, the Hussain family reminds me of my January 2018 column in Taki's Magazine "
From Slate: Keep in mind that the astrological theme is being played, sort of, for laughs as a way to get some more clicks to a tired staple of online journalism content generation: two staffers talk about a movie they saw over the weekend. But this reminds me of an observation I tweeted a month... Read More
For a few weeks, the media eased up on all the Becky Bashing that started with the Starbucks Bathroom Crisis last spring because we were instead now supposed to Believe Women. But Kavanaugh got voted through anyway, so white women are back to being Lowest Victim on the Intersectional Totem Pole. From the NYT, some... Read More
In Slate, a smart Jewish guy from Mexico City explains to gringos that the American Establishment's political Conventional Wisdom of 2000-2015 -- the key to the White House is amnestying Mexican illegal aliens -- is silly. The Democrats Have a Latino Problem Hispanic voters were supposed to be the party’s future. It’s not working out... Read More
From the New York Times: Not to mention Bill Gates, the Koch Brothers, Michael Bloomberg, and Sheldon Adelson. But the immigration skeptical side has an ophthalmologist in Northern Michigan, so how can Mark Zuckerberg et al compete with that kind of funding firepower?
Continuing with the Steinbrenner-Trump parallels, a reader points to this recent Sports Illustrated story about what happened to Steinbrenner's feuding, tabloid-addicted New York Yankees on August 9, 1978, when the Yankees trailed the Boston Red Sox by 8.5 games. Steinbrenner was just about to fire a bunch of front office George Costanza-like employees over what... Read More
This would make a good inspiration for a bestselling Young Adult dystopian trilogy of novels for teenage girls to read: Robots replace HR ladies in the hiring process, but the robots hire more white men because white men tend more often to get the job done. From Reuters: Amazon scraps secret AI recruiting tool that... Read More
From the NYT opinion page: Being black enough to qualify for affirmative action has been very, very good to Prof. Boddie's career. Okay, let me try to imagine this ... Hmmmmmmm ... Sounds good! Let's do it. It would be a lot like how applicants for openings in symphony orchestras audition behind a curtain. Or... Read More
From Vox: By the way, my new Taki's Magazine book review of The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff concludes with a discussion of how the differences between medieval European beliefs in witchcraft and modern African beliefs in witchcraft influence contemporary concepts like "systemic racism" and "implicit bias."
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing there.
Regarding Trump's style of battling publicly with all and sunder, including his own underlings such as Jeff Sessions, I often point to the similar style of Trump's idol, New York Yankee ballclub owner George Steinbrenner. The George Steinbrenner character voiced by Larry David on Seinfeld was an older, cuddlier version than the one I remember... Read More
You hear a lot about "affordable housing" these days, but it can be hard to make sense of the rhetoric since the term can have at least two different meanings. 1. "Affordable housing" can mean that new luxury developments must offer some of their units to selected people at low (i.e., subsidized) prices for some... Read More
To help us better understand many of the outpourings of rage in the media, I've asked Alex Portnoy's mother to explain some of the background: Let the goyim sink their teeth into whatever lowly creature crawls and grunts across the face of the dirty earth, we will not contaminate our humanity thus. Let them (if... Read More

Are elite university admissions based on meritocracy and diversity as claimed?
What Was John McCain's True Wartime Record in Vietnam?
Hundreds of POWs may have been left to die in Vietnam, abandoned by their government—and our media.
The evidence is clear — but often ignored
The “war hero” candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam.
