Columnists have had a field day with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s Supreme Court decision [Grutter PDF]. In effect, O’Connor declared diversity to be a “compelling state interest” that trumps the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Sowell described the five-member majority as “vacancies without resignations.” Shelby Steele declared the ruling “a victory for... Read More
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against the racial quota system used in the University of Michigan’s undergraduate admissions program (Gratz case) [PDF] and for the racial quota system used in the Law School’s admission program (Grutter case). [PDF] The difference is that “the procedures employed by the University of Michigan’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions... Read More
Sometime this month, perhaps before this column is published, the Supreme Court will rule on the University of Michigan’s racial quotas. Both in law school and undergraduate admissions, the university intentionally discriminates against white applicants in favor of “preferred minorities.” It is obvious that the university’s policy violates equality before the law and the Constitution’s...

Are democracies democratic? Or do elites determine political outcomes regardless of majority opinion? Look at last weekend’s massive anti-war rally in London. Random interviews with participants revealed that many were first time marchers who were protesting not merely war, but Prime Minister Blair’s habit of running roughshod over British opinion. Marchers oppose Blair going to... Read More
The U.S. has the most sophisticated financial markets in the world. Yet, its financial reporters and financial policymakers are anything but sophisticated. In a recent Wall Street Journal article (Dec. 19), reporters Jeffrey Ball and Karen Lundegaard confused depreciation–a business expense–with a reduction in the price of a consumer product. Business owners, the journalists reported,... Read More
Christmas is a time of traditions. If you have found time in the rush before Christmas to decorate a tree, you are sharing in a relatively new tradition. Although the Christmas tree has ancient roots, at the beginning of the 20th century only 1 in 5 American families put up a tree. It was 1920... Read More
Just before Thanksgiving the editor of the Nashville newspaper, The Tennessean, and Vanderbilt University professor Jonathan Farley teamed up to commit a hate crime. Farley wrote, and the Tennessean published, an article that attacked the United Daughters of the Confederacy for what Farley calls “honoring traitors.” Farley’s article brims with hatred of Confederate Army soldiers...

For three decades the United States has been descending into a feudal legal order. In the ancient feudal system, the differential rights in the legal system were class-based. In the new feudal order, rights are determined by race, gender, and handicapped status. In the old feudalism, the people with the most rights were descendants of... Read More
What does immigration cost us? At a recent debate in Arlington, Virginia, Harvard Professor George Borjas quoted an estimate of $70 billion a year. He noted, however, that the cost is not evenly distributed. Some communities are heavily impacted with swollen welfare budgets and hospitals on the brink of bankruptcy. Immigration is estimated to cost... Read More
Dr. Noel Ignatiev, Harvard academic and founder of the racist magazine, Race Traitor, wants “to abolish the white race.” Dr. Ignatiev [[email protected]] wants to abolish whites, because he believes whites are loyal to their race and advance their interests at the expense of black people. Apparently, he sees no harm in other races being loyal... Read More
Is the multicultural campaign really about diversity? Or is it about stamping out Western civilization and the “white race” itself? College students will tell you that a university education today is a guilt trip for whites. The purpose is to prevent whites from appreciating and absorbing their own culture and to make it difficult for... Read More
Second in a series on America’s imperiled future.[I, III, IV, V, VI] Who are we? What are we? Fifty years ago there was only one answer. We were Americans, and most knew what that meant. When American principles were found lacking in practice, reformers stepped forth. In those days, reform meant to apply the principles,... Read More
At birth, a fresh idea encourages thought, but not all ideas age well. Some turn into shibboleths that block debate. Today shibboleths rule over thought. Consider the idea of “the public interest.” This idea was once useful to restrain the arbitrary power of kings. But today every self-serving politician and interest group claims to be... Read More
White males are suffering from long-term deterioration in lifetime income growth and job security, according to a study, “Divergent Paths,” just released by the Russell Sage Foundation. The study by four academic sociologists and statisticians compares the wage growth and job security of young white males who entered the labor market in the late 1970s... Read More
The most important headline of 2001 came on the last day. It was in the Washington Times and read:“Daschle defends 60-vote majority.” Thus did Tom Daschle, Senate Majority Leader and Democrat from South Dakota, raise the ugly head of tyranny. Daschle has decided that Republican issues along with President Bush’s nominees to executive branch positions,... Read More
You are not alone if you think it is odd that we are killing Muslims in Afghanistan, but are afraid to profile Muslims in airport security. President Bush has won the war against the Taliban, but his transportation chief has taken the bloom off the victory by making air travelers feel like criminals in their... Read More
Do you know that there are 15,000 Muslims serving in the U.S. armed forces? Are you aware that the U.S. military has Muslim Imams? Following September 11, Captain Abd Al-Rasheed Muhammad, Imam of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C., asked the North American Islamic Jurisprudence Council if it is permissible for Muslim troops...

Liberal-stifled patriotism, pent-up for decades, has burst forth in response to the events of September 11. It is in fashion again to be a proud American. Patriotism rallies people to the support of their country, granting government new and expanded powers to respond to terrorists. This is understandable, but a headlong rush is no way... Read More
A tragedy for thousands of Americans, the September 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. were a boon for Eurostatists, Eurocrats and other assorted architects of a European state. The superstatists quickly put their own spin on the attacks, arguing that their success proves the impotence and pointlessness of national sovereignty. As British European Union advocate... Read More
A self-described “very conservative” gentleman, [name withheld by request], takes exception to my column, posted on VDARE, about the white husband in Idaho being arrested for coming to the defense of his wife, who was assaulted by a black man. This gentleman says that his anger at the prosecutor turned into anger at me after... Read More
pportunity to offset the effect on elections of the black vote by gaining the Latin or Hispanic vote for Republicans. From this standpoint, amnesty for Latin illegals and permission for Mexican trucking companies to deliver goods in the U.S. make political sense. However, the combination of amnesty and quotas spells the end of the American... Read More
he 1964 Civil Rights Act was passed to reaffirm the constitutional requirement of equality in law. Paradoxically, the Civil Rights Act destroyed equality in law and put in place a caste system. The lack of response by the U.S. Department of Justice to outbreaks of black-on-white violence in Seattle, Washington, and Cincinnati, Ohio, reveals an... Read More
University of California President Richard C. Atkinson is caught between a rock and a hard place. In order to remain politically correct—a requisite for keeping his job—he had to engage in hate speech and hate thought, offenses that mandate sensitivity training if not prosecution. California’s Proposition 209 forbids privileged university admissions on the basis of... Read More
“President Bush might succeed in building an anti-missile defense system and invigorating our economy with a tax cut. But does it really matter?…” The rot in American intellectual life has reached a putrid state. Nothing better illustrates the decline in education and the ability to think than the argument over “affirmative action.” Affirmative action means... Read More
In 1973 the prize-winning French novelist Jean Raspail published The Camp of the Saints. An English language edition appeared in 1975 to general acclaim. Publishers’ Weekly declared the book to be “remarkable . . . riveting.” The Wall Street Journal‘s Edmond Fuller said, “sensational.” Linell Smith inThe Baltimore Sun said, “no reader will remain unaffected...

As we enter the second decade since the demise of the Soviet Union as a political entity, Soviet propaganda is as influential as ever. Indeed, Soviet propaganda will influence the success or failure of the new Bush administration and could even ultimately decide the fate of the two-century-old “American experiment.” In the struggle for world...
