Sailer's Law of Mass Shootings: But what if the crowd appears to be mostly white, as in last night's St. Paul shooting of 15? From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune: GO 95.3 describes its music as "modern hip-hop [black] and modern alternative [white])." The DJ is white. The bar's website video shows mostly white patrons. Here's a... Read More
The FBI has finally released its 2020 Uniform Crime Reporting data from most (but, as usual, not all) of the law enforcement agencies in the U.S. I concentrate on murders, the most accurately reported crime. Murders and non-negligent manslaughters were up a record-crushing 29.4%, in-line with my January 6, 2021 estimate: "Therefore, the national figure... Read More
From CBS San Francisco: UPDATE: 3 Charged In Hate Crime Spree Targeting Asian Women Across Bay Area September 19, 2021 at 11:02 pm SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — Three suspects have been charged in a hate crime spree involving dozens of purse snatches and robberies throughout the San Francisco Bay Area targeting Asian women, authorities...

This is a 2019 federal report, so it's not using the latest Census data, nor does it show the impact of covid, which couldn't be good, but it is still of interest. Here are total fertility rates for non-Hispanic white women by educational attainment: So white women with Master's degrees have 83% as many babies... Read More
Here's the final report on the 2020 election from the Pew center: Trump increased his share of the Hispanic vote from a not bad 28% in 2016, comparable to what McCain and Romney drew, to a quite good 38% in 2020, likely better than Hispanophile George W. Bush in 2000 and only a little behind... Read More
During our VDARE.com Book Club discussion on The Bonfire of the Vanities, Steve Sailer argued that the book wasn’t the quintessential American novel. [Join the Book Club here, and listen to part of it below.]
Lots of events in the Southeast are celebrating the first anniversary of the Racial Reckoning: keep that spirit alive! For example, from the Hilton Head Island Packet: Man who told police he fatally shot ex-Hardeeville fire chief in 2017 found not guilty BY LANA FERGUSON MAY 27, 2021 01:15 PM, Although Devon Dunham confessed to...

From the New York Times: For some reason, that strikes me as the funniest Conquistador-American name yet that I've seen among diversity hires. I'm waiting for José Antonio Primo de Rivera y Sáenz de Heredia IV, Duke of Primo Rivera to show up on the New York Times list of its new vibrantly diverse employees,... Read More
From the New York Times news section: Note that the NYT didn't have the body camera footage when they posted this article. I do, and I analyze it below. My brief impression was that Mayor Ginther handled it pretty well, unlike many other politicians recently, emphasizing keep calm and wait for the facts. He didn't... Read More

From The Atlantic: Why America’s Great Crime Decline Is Over Even before the recent mass shootings, violent crime was surging to its highest rate in 30 years. Patrick Sharkey illuminates what’s happening. Derek Thompson Staff writer at The Atlantic Americans are experiencing a crime wave unlike anything we’ve seen this century. After decades of decline,...

Two years ago in Virginia Beach, a municipal worker resigned from his job and then immediately murdered 12 of his now ex-coworkers and wounded five others before the cops killed him. This case didn't get all that much publicity from the mainstream media because the shooter was black. (This case is an exception to Sailer's... Read More
From The Economist, a week and a half after I broke the news that murder was up 38% in urban America in 2020 over 2019: No, they aren't. Who lives on those 7% of Chicago? That might give us a clue who is committing all the incremental murders. Murders in Chicago declined in recent years... Read More
Here's the 1994 letter cowritten by Joe Biden's nominee to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, Kristen Clarke, to the Harvard Crimson: Blacks Seek An End to Abuse To The Editors ... October 28, 1994 In response to those who defend The Bell Curve ("Defending The Bell Curve," Opinion, Oct. 24, 1994), please use... Read More
From Prism: The National Lawyers Guild was formed in 1937 after Stalin called for a "Popular Front" of Communists and liberals to oppose Hitler. But with the signing of the Stalin-Hitler pact, the National Lawyers Guild instantly became anti-anti-Nazi, costing it most of its non-Communist members. Prominent human rights attorney Natasha Lycia Ora Bannan has... Read More
My new column totals up murders in 104 cities and finds homicides were up an enormous 37.9% in 2020, three times the biggest national increase in murders (12.7% in 1968) in the last 60 years. The final national number that the FBI will announce next September will likely be lower, say in the 25-30% range,... Read More
As we've been instructed for decades, the key to Republicans doing better among immigrant voters is to let in more immigrants. Thus, Donald Trump in 2020, while he may have done better among whites because of their innate xenophobic racism, was swept away by the righteous wrath of immigrants. Except ... the opposite happened. From... Read More
My October 14, 2020 Taki's Magazine column "Slaughter in the Cities" quoted a report by liberal social scientist Richard Rosenfeld of the Council on Criminal Justice as showing in 20 big cities: Now, Rosenfeld has updated his report through the end of August:
From a New York Times book review that provides a useful way to think about the Great Awokening's "de-compartmentalization" of science from the Woke faith ("All races and genders are created equal, but some are more equal than others") that is threatening scientists and thus science. BOOKS OF THE TIMES Modern Science Didn’t Appear Until... Read More
In 2002, the great political scientist James Q. Wilson wrote a book chapter summing up a lifetime of studying the vexed issue of crime and race: A central problem—perhaps the central problem—in improving the relationship between white and black Americans is the difference in racial crime rates. No matter how innocent or guilty a stranger... 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
My best guess for why the SAT is falling out of favor, as exemplified by it getting Cancelled at the U. of California campuses, would be what you see in this 2019 graph by Unsilenced Science: Namely, Asians have been pulling away from everybody else on the SAT college admissions test, especially since David "Common...

Here's a brand new study of racial admixture and IQ scores. From Psych: Global Ancestry and Cognitive Ability Jordan Lasker, Bryan J. Pesta, John G. R. Fuerst and Emil O. W.

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: Not much is happening other than Asians are scoring higher. Similarly, here's Unsilenced Science's graph of trends on...

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: Most of my graphs represent the medium / most likely projections according to the... 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
Most reactions to the news of Ziad Ahmed getting into Stanford with an application where he answered the question What matters to you (100 word limit) with the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag repeated 100 times have fallen into two camps: admiration from the MSM and charges that Ziad must be stupid or lazy or Marxist from conservatives....

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 By DAMON HEWITT MARCH 22, 2017 This month, a select group of eighth graders in New York City found out that they were being offered a spot at some of the nation’s best high schools, the eight “specialized” city public high...

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
From Wikipedia: The Birth of a Nation (2016 film) The Birth of a Nation is a 2016 American period drama film about Nat Turner, the slave who led a slave rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831. The film is co-written, co-produced and directed by Nate Parker, in his directorial debut. ... The Birth of... Read More
From the NYT: A big factor is that the nice white liberal Democrats of New York defeated five consecutive Democratic candidates for Mayor from 1993 through 2009, instead electing crime-fighters Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg. You can see Bloomberg's stop-and-frisk program in the graph below of "Change in Weapons Cases Since 2001." While there is... 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, it's still an apparent hellhole for black students. From the NYT: At University of Missouri,...

Blogger Sendil has kindly sent along a table he or she made from Center for Disease Control data on the change in death rates among whites (both sexes) age 45-54 by state between 1999 and 2013. It looks like it correlates with white drugs (opioids, meth), obesity, smoking, and low real estate prices (i.e., expensive... Read More
I know The White Death isn't as fun to talk about as, say, the KKK Invasion hysteria that swept the U. of Missouri yesterday, but it is a matter of life and death. Above are Andrew Gelman's graphs showing death rate trend lines for white women (pink) and white men (blue)* from 1999 to 2013... Read More
Back in the previous decade, you could look up on the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics website a convenient graph in HTML form of "homicide offending" trends over time. But the Obama Administration stopped maintaining that website (you can still find it here on Archive.com's Wayback Machine). As of 2011 they made you look up... Read More
And another graph that explains the migrant crises of 2016-2100
The demographers of the United Nation's Population Division have quietly released their World Population Prospects: 2015 Revision report. Above is a graph I put together from their new data that explains much about the "Migrant Crisis" of 2015. As you can see, way back in 1950, the population of the Middle East was only 18%...

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: The New Black Intelligentsia Is Shaping American Thought Online by MICHAEL ERIC DYSON ... A... Read More

From my new column in Taki's Magazine: A Tale of Two Suburbs Two of the better movies of 2015 are weirdly similar musical biopics about bands from Los Angeles’ south suburbs. Last June’s Love & Mercy profiled Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, who came from Hawthorne, Calif., while gangsta rappers N.W.A, who helped spread... Read More
The New York Times Magazine has a giant article on tennis player Serena Williams by Claudia Rankine (pictured at right) that serves as yet another illustration of my observation that while many female journalists routinely crusade on the surface against sexism, racism, etc., a close reading of their most passionate articles suggests that their highest... Read More
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
