Kirkegaard * Correspondence: [email protected] Received: 8 June 2019; Accepted: 28 August 2019; Published: 30 August 2019 Abstract: Using data from the Philadelphia Neurodevelopmental Cohort,...

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
King of Queens Joe Crowley is a 9-term Democratic Congressman from Queens who was seen as a successor to Nancy Pelosi whenever it is that her era finally grinds to a halt. But tonight he got smashed in the Democratic primary by a pretty young Puerto Rican socialist lady running on a platform of free... Read More
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: ... Since 1929, anthropologists have assured us that race is just a social construct, that ancient peoples made pots not war, that Aryan conquests in India and Europe were Nazi delusions, that the caste system was imposed on the egalitarian Indians by British colonialists, and many other agreeable...

From the New York Times: Here's Razib's early reaction to Reich's book. Greg Cochran is doing a fundraiser at West Hunter to pay him to review "Who We Are" in depth. In 1942, the anthropologist Ashley Montagu published “Man’s Most Dangerous Myth: The Fallacy of Race,” an influential book that argued that race is a... Read More
From the New York Times: - It's almost as if 45 to 50 years of affirmative action haven't succeeded in making blacks and Hispanics smarter ... Here's the 1996-2011 trends in SAT Math scores from Unsilenced Science:
Ron Unz asked me to collect all my recent graphs based on data published in the United Nations' World Population Prospects 2017 in one jaw-dropping post. First, here's the latest version of what I've been calling The World's Most Important Graph: Here, however, is the UN's most high end projection for Africa: assume decreasing mortality... Read More
From Vox: Getting worked up over Charles Murray being allowed on a podcast seems a little bizarre. (Here's the podcast.) Under the faux indignation and clickbait headline, however, this is about as good an attempt as any to shore up the Conventional Wisdom that the racial differences in average intel
One trend we've been tracking at iSteve recently is Tiger Children taking over the social justice jihadi racket. You might think that just because you are poor and black that you'd get a leg up in the struggle for, say, a leftist NGO job, but ... look out! The hardest-charging immigrants are coming from 10,000... Read More
From the NYT op-ed page: The Truth About New York City’s Elite High Schools
Here’s my presentation at the early 2013 VDARE.com symposium, transcribed and then translated from spoken Sailerese into actual written English. Hi, I’m Steve Sailer, and it’s a real pleasure to address our symposium. I’m going to talk about some overlooked aspects of the 2012 election. As we get to the data, we’re going to focus... Read More
One of the curious aspects of New York Times articles is that they are often organized in the reverse order of how the same material would be reported in, say, the Daily Mail. NYT articles tend to start off boring and depressing, with only vague hints of why the reporter is interested in the subject,... Read More
From my new column in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing there.
A distant relative is in the swimming pool business and raves about the four pools at the state-of-the-art U. of Missouri recreation center. From the university's website, here's a description of one of the four pools, the Tiger Grotto:
But in 2013, the Obama Administration's Bureau of Justice Statistics dropped the homicide offending numbers from their latest homicide report in favor of only mentioning homicide victimization. While that seems petty, it makes it easier for SJWs to fantasize about evil white men gunning down black baby bodies. And that matters more than knowing the... Read More
And another graph that explains the migrant crises of 2016-2100
Radio comedian Will Rogers is often said to have sagely advised, "If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging." Western Europe has found itself in a hole over the last generation, having imprudently admitted large numbers of Muslims. Germany's two-pronged solution: - Double down - Bully Germany's eastern neighbors into the same mistake so... Read More
A New York Times article reporting on a sharp increase in homicides over the last year in places like Milwaukee, Baltimore and St. Louis led to much tut-tutting from outlets like Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight about how this was cherrypicking and all around Bad Science . So now FiveThirtyEight has rounded up the homicide numbers for... Read More
From The Atlantic website: So you can't yet read TNC's blockbuster article about "The Enduring Myth of Black Criminality," but you can salve your impatience by listening to TNC talk about his next effusion here. Meanwhile, from The New Republic:
From the NYT Op-Ed Page: The Opinion Pages | CONTRIBUTING OP-ED WRITER The Virginia Shooter Wanted Fame. Let’s Not Give It to Him. Zeynep Tufekci A BRUTAL attack takes place on live television; the on-air reporter and cameraman are fatally shot while at work on an early morning story. The resulting footage — essentially a...

Back before 1992 Olympics, Runner's World executive editor Amby Burfoot published a cover story "White Men Can't Run" pointing out the West African / East African distinction between who wins Olympic sprints versus distances races. At that point, blacks of West African descent had made up all of the last 16 finalists in the Olympics... Read More
Who could have guessed? Breaking news in the New York Times: Nationwide, according to the 2011 Obama Administration study "Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008," blacks were almost eight times more likely to be homicide offenders. But, of course, noticing patterns and looking for simple explanations runs afoul of that
A cornerstone of the conventional wisdom is that All We Have to Do is to spend a lot more money cognitively stimulating poor black children pre-K and that will close The Gap. But down through history, it's been assumed that better teachers should work with higher, not lower potential students: Socrates taught Plato, Plato taught... Read More
The shadowy concept of a municipal coup goes back at least to the feds setting up and arresting Washington D.C. mayor Marion Barry in 1990. Similarly, the revival of New Orleans over the last ten years since Hurricane Katrina has some of the indications of a slow white coup overthrowing the old black/creole of color... Read More
From my new book review in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing there. Here's a picture of Park Slope in the 1970 Hal Ashby movie The Landlord starring Beau Bridges, shot when Quinn was about 11:
A big change in crime-fighting tactics in California over the last decade has been to stop focusing on arresting just the "kingpins" of street gangs (because, it turns out, it doesn't actually take some kind of rare Ernst Stavro Blofeld-style malevolent brilliance to run a gang). Instead, all the cop agencies get together and sweep... Read More

Matthew Weiner really, truly, deeply wants you to know that his cable show Mad Men was motivated by all the anti-Semitism he endured in Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. From the Washington Post: Q&A: ‘Mad Men’ creator Matthew Weiner talks ‘other-ness’ and Jewish identity on eve of finale By Lisa Lednicer May 14... Read More
From the NYT Magazine: The Great Democratic Crack-Up of 2016 They may have a strong presidential candidate, but at every other level, the party’s politicians and activists are fighting to survive — and fighting with one another. By ROBERT DRAPER MAY 12, 2015 Maryland might seem a peculiar venue for a blood feud over the... Read More
Here's a story that has been kicking around on the Republican rightsphere for awhile, but has now made the leap to the New York Times as Adam Nagourney figures out how to spin it properly: "Old biases ..." UCLA of course is a notorious redoubt of racoon coat-wearing, Stutz Bearcat-driving WASPs, so their legacy of... Read More
From Politico: Holder could look outside the mainstream of Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence to more informal community-based systems of legal reasoning, such as lynch law. They could call it Lynch law. For example, consider the old rationalization for punishing an innocent man: For Reason of State. Isn't it about time that the Obama Administration becomes entitled to... Read More
As the 100th anniversary of Hollywood's first blockbuster classic film, The Birth of a Nation, awkwardly approaches on March 3, it's fascinating to reflect upon how much attitudes have changed in the South toward the threat of black men raping white women. A couple of decades ago, Tom Wolfe dreamed up a plot for A... Read More

After the 2012 election we heard a lot about how the Obama Coalition was a demographic juggernaut. To take a random example, from New York magazine on May 10, 2013: Of course, Richwine should be fired for having done his Harvard doctoral dissertation on a technical subject of massive importance to the long term future...

For years I've been pointing out that two bulwarks of Democratic Party campaign fundraising and prestige, Silicon Valley and Hollywood, don't have to play by the Diversity rules that most of the rest of American business is supposed to play by. Every few years since the 1990s, Jesse Jackson would try to shake down the... Read More
In Freakonomics in 2012, superstar economist Daron Acemoglu and his sidekick James A. Robinson used a Q & A with readers to promote their book Why Nations Fail and its all-purpose theory that "extractive institutions" rather than "inclusive institutions" were to blame for anything bad that ever happened anywhere in the history of the world....

Why are the New York and Washington media so obsessed over matters of local governance in tiny Ferguson, MO? For example, the latest evolution of national media thinking on the Lessons to Be Learned from the Michael Brown crime spree shooting of an unarmed teen is that the Big Issue is that other half-pint municipalities...

Like so many incidents -- going back at least to the Tawana Brawley hoax of the 1980s -- that the national media decide to obsess over as case studies of White Racism in Action, the Ferguson, MO story is turning out to be a fiasco. Apparently, the future shooting victim had just looted a convenience... Read More
Neymar Jr., the star of the Brazilian national soccer team who was severely injured by a knee to the back by a Colombian player in a World Cup quarterfinal, has been doing a Sammy Sosa in recent years. To the left is the wealthy Neymar of 20014, with his current Orange County skate punk look.... Read More
