Indianapolis is known as the “Crossroads of America.” It hosts the world’s largest one-day sporting event, the Indy 500. It was one of the great capitals of the Midwest, and as “Railroad City,” it was a hub that joined the continent. Its magnificent “Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument” is a neoclassical tribute to the common men... Read More
This is the fifth in a series about the continuing disappearance of whites from American cities (see our earlier entries for Birmingham, Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago). Many people still pretend that The Great Replacement is a myth or a conspiracy theory, but the graphs that accompany each article in this series prove... Read More

Almost everyone knows Brown v. Board of Education banned school segregation. Few know that the justices said segregation was wrong because it made blacks feel inferior. Today, many people celebrate white inferiority. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that her grandson’s birthday wish was to have “brown skin and brown eyes.” She called this... Read More

In April, CNN asked me for an interview with one of its hosts, Fareed Zakaria, as part of an hour-long program on “white nationalism.” I was reluctant. Programs of this kind don’t try to understand why people become “white nationalists.” They just dismiss them as “racists,” “haters,” and “white supremacists.” I explained this to executive...

Thomas Jefferson called Missouri’s petition for statehood a “fire bell in the night” portending war. For me, the fire bell is the first large all-African group of immigrants caught crossing the southern border. They knew the legal tricks to pull to be released into the country. This portends doom. My foreboding comes from what Steve... Read More
The reality we are not supposed to notice
The Great Replacement is the reduction of whites to a minority in what were once their neighborhoods, cities, states, or countries. It’s happening around the world, but many journalists think we shouldn’t talk about it. Here are editorials from the Washington Post(“The racist theory that underlies terrorism in New Zealand and the Trump presidency“) and... Read More

But hopes we can all get along anyway.
Black 17-year-old Jazmine Barnes was shot dead on December 30, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Her murder became a huge story because witnesses said the killer was a white man. In just one week, the New York Times ran a dozen stories on Jazmine Barnes. On January 7, Jazmine lost all importance and dropped out of... Read More

It was set up so perfectly. To kick start the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon, 2018’s First Man—the epic story of Armstrong’s journey to become the first man to walk on the moon—would be nominated for Best Picture. Ryan Gosling would be nominated for Best Actor for portraying the heroic... Read More
The nation’s hall monitors have dug up some of his “racist” quotes.
In 1980, Orange County, California boasted a population that was 78 percent white. It was the birthplace of the American conservative movement, boasting 38 chapters of the anti-communist John Birch Society. John Wayne—star of perhaps the finest movie ever made, The Searchers—was a member of this organization and lived in neighboring Newport Beach. In 1979,... Read More

It’s OK to be white. On Sunday, more than 110 million Americans will huddle around their television sets and watch the 53rd Super Bowl, a matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots. After two seasons marred by black NFL players taking a Colin Kaepernick-style knee or raising a ‘Black Power’ fist during... Read More
The conservative movement is uniquely hobbled. First, its supposed leaders are less committed and militant than its followers. Second, it may be the only political movement in America that tries to dissuade followers from productive action, rather than inspiring them to fight. This explains why prominent conservatives are attacking Tucker Carlson for his powerful monologue... Read More
Georgia slouches Gomorrah
Georgians have a probably apocryphal story about Andrew Young, the black former mayor of Atlanta and ambassador to the United Nations. In an address at historically black Clark Atlanta University, Mr. Young talked about white flight. “No matter where they go,” he said, “we will follow. No matter how far away they move, we will...

Anti-racism is a church with no salvation. To be white is to be counted among the damned, no matter what you do. To be “colorblind” was once the goal of anti-racism, but today colorblindness is just another form of racism. And any white who resents being accused of racism is displaying “white fragility;” a host... Read More
Landing on the moon is arguably America’s greatest accomplishment. It’s therefore symbolic of our times that the American flag has been expunged from the upcoming biopic of Neil Armstrong, First Man. Star Ryan Gosling, a Canadian, said the moon landing “transcended countries and borders” and defended the erasure of Old Glory because “I think this... Read More
The ongoing neutering of the South
On August 20, “Silent Sam” was pulled down on the campus of the University of North Carolina by a mob of students. Erected in 1913, it was a memorial to the UNC men who fought for the Confederacy. Earlier this year, there was another betrayal of Southern heritage: the introduction of the Tony the Landshark... Read More
White people can’t be victims. They can’t be discriminated against. Whites — as a group — can’t even be harmed. In the words of Stuff White People Like author Christian Lander, “It is always OK to make fun of white people, because no unhappy ending is possible.” The multicultural system assumes an all-encompassing “white privilege”...

Pack it up boys, it’s all over. The System media is taunting white advocates because of the low turnout at the second Unite the Right rally, held on Augusts 12 in Washington D.C. The erstwhile “Southern Avenger” Jack Hunter, who would be vastly more influential today if he had stuck to paleoconservatism, wrote in the... Read More
American patriotism is at a record-low, according to a new Gallup poll. Only 47 percent of respondents are “extremely proud” to be American, and most of the decline has taken place among Democrats. In 2013 — only five years ago — 56 percent of Democrats said they were “extremely proud” of being American. Now it’s... Read More

Putting minorities’ feelings first kills creativity.
Few television programs have had the cultural impact of The Simpsons. Reporters now use the show as an inspiration for headlines. “’Free Market’” Conservatives Welcome Their New Protectionist Overlord, wrote Reason, citing a classic segment. In 2012 and 2016, reporters cited Homer Simpson’s proud declaration of “don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos!”—a joke suggesting... Read More
And ignores today’s murder victims.
A memorial is a statement about what society holds to be important and wants to remember. As Confederate memorials come down in the South, a memorial to lynching has been built in Montgomery, Alabama. It claims to honors victims from the past, but its purpose seems to be to shame whites in the present. Philip... Read More
In a recent piece, Slate’s Jamelle Bouie explained that the two African-American men recently arrested at the Starbucks in Philadelphia had been “raced.” “Race is about power and hierarchy,” claims Mr. Bouie. “When one is ‘raced,’ one is placed in relationship to that hierarchy — your position assigned to your body and made visible to...

Media claim white men are the problem; the facts say otherwise. The Second Amendment is under siege. In the New York Times, retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens urged its repeal. A national survey conducted by The Economist and YouGov found 21 percent of Americans support repealing the Second Amendment. Not surprisingly, support varies... Read More
Popular culture is witnessing a return of high fantasy. Game of Thrones is one of the most successful television programs in history. Lord of the Rings is heading for Amazon Prime. The Witcher, based on Polish folklore and one of the best reviewed video games in history, will become a series on Netflix (and the... Read More

A fictional answer to whites’ real-world success
James Baldwin, perhaps the most influential black literary figure of the last century, confessed in Notes of a Native Son that blacks feel alienated and inferior no matter where they travel in the modern world. Each black person, he mourned, is but a “stranger in their village,” a global village shaped by others—especially by whites.... Read More

Another way to shake down whitey
Kimani Paul-Emile is a light-skinned black woman who teaches law at Fordham Law School. Since graduating from Brown University in 1993 and getting a law degree from Georgetown, she has been showered with countless honors and fellowships, and in 2016, she co-founded the Center for Race, Law, and Justice at Fordham. “Just suing isn’t going...

The power of “white privilege,” we are told, is all but unlimited. It underlies all our institutions. It is responsible for all non-white shortcomings. Its evil infects every white person and brings them wealth and power. To be white is to be one of the lords of creation, filled with what certified MacArthur Genius Ta-Nehisi... Read More
Whiteness is a birth defect
For the mainstream media, it was a bona fide crisis. Blake Shelton, a European-American country singer and a host of The Voice, whom I had never heard of until yesterday morning,was named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man In The World.” The result was outrage. Marlow Stern at the Daily Beast declared grandly that “people” are in... Read More

An interesting niche in the political Left has appeared over the last 18 months. They are a segment of the Bernie Sanders wing of the Left, socialists who oppose racial identity politics generally and the shaming of poor whites in particular. I call them the anti-anti-white Left. They are vehemently opposed to the Clinton family... Read More
The main issues in American politics are mass immigration, demographic change, and the new Culture War against implicit symbols of white identity. A celebrity businessman is now the leading GOP candidate for president only because of his banal truism that illegals from Mexico commit crimes. The overwhelmingly white base of the Republican Party is coping... Read More
“The Narrative” will hold firm.
Every weekday for two weeks–from June 9 to June 20–we are running essays by race-realist commentators on the future of American race relations. Specifically, we have asked them to imagine what America will be like 20 years from now. The ten contributors to the series, whom we will publish in alphabetical order, are: John Derbyshire,...

Nelson Mandela is dead, and South Africa without “Madiba” will be much the same as it was before: a wreck of a country with slowly collapsing infrastructure, high crime, and the slow-motion genocide of Afrikaners. None of this much matters to the opinion makers of what used to be the West. For them, the true... Read More
Americans live by lies. Or they are ignorant. Or they deliberately refuse to think. There may even be conscious deception, borne out of a sense of noblesse oblige or misplaced morality. Whatever the reason, race has been removed from any serious policy discussion. The result is a society dependent on ignoring reality. Sure, we pretend... Read More
There are very few whites today who publicly express a healthy racial consciousness and speak in the name of white interests. Some white advocates are therefore tempted to look to black nationalists for lessons in how to promote a racial cause. Blacks who promote racial identity and self-sufficiency both legitimize white racial advocacy and offer... Read More

The evidence is clear — but often ignored
Recent films about ancient Greece such as Troy, Helen of Troy, and 300, have used actors who are of Anglo-Saxon or Celtic ancestry (e.g. Brad Pitt, Gerard Butler). Recent films about ancient Rome, such as Gladiator and HBO’s series Rome, have done the same (e.g. Russell Crowe). Were the directors right, from an historical point... Read More
Diversity has joined apple pie, motherhood, and the flag as a symbol of America. Many politicians cannot get through a stump speech without praising American diversity, and corporate CEOs boast of their diverse workforces. The idea that diversity is one of our country’s great strengths — even its greatest strength — now goes essentially unchallenged.... Read More

I have been asked to speak on the subject, “Demography is Destiny.” The phrase is attributed to the 19th century French mathematician and philosopher, August Comte (1798–1857), who is known as the “father of sociology.” By it he meant that as a rise or fall in birth rates works itself out over the decades, it...

Naturally, it is disappointing that an old friend should read AR for three full years and remain unconvinced by it. Even so, you gave it the benefit of the doubt for a long time, longer than any friend or editor could have asked. Of the many objections you raise, there is only one that really... Read More
