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
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 New York Times: Postcard From Peru: Why the Morality Plays Inside The Times Won’t Stop By Ben Smith, Feb. 14, 2021 In 2012, when The New York Times was panicked about its financial future, this newspaper went into the travel business. It began selling “Times Journeys,” on which an expert beat reporter would... 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
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
The New York Times Opinion section explains that vote fraud is practically impossible because it would require a large number of people working together to win elections with machine-like coordination: a "political machine" if you can imagine such a thing. But, of course, political machines don't exist. Republicans Claim Voter Fraud. How Would That Work?... 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 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
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...

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
The NYT and FiveThirtyEight forecasts have split, with NYT thinking a Trump victory is highly likely, but 538 has gone back to giving Hillary a small lead in the chances of winning. But in case the NYT model turns out to be right ... From iSteve back in February: Harry Baldwin has put together a... Read More
If you go to Google and type in American inventors you get back from Google pictures of the top American inventors of all time. The #1 American inventor of all time is Lewis Howard Latimer, who, I just learned, worked with both Edison and Bell. Thomas Edison is in 6th place and a well-tanned Alexander... Read More
From PBS: Why the ‘alt-right’ is coming out of online chat rooms to support Trump August 25, 2016 at 6:30 PM EDT Donald Trump is appealing to voters who reject mainstream conservative ideals. These members of the so-called "alt-right" have typically taken their frustrations to the internet, rather than to the polls. John Yang interviews... 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

As I noted last August, it's not exactly a secret that the Israeli government recruits college students to write online comments. Nor is it a secret that there are other ways to make money promoting Israel. For example, the Israeli broadsheet Haaretz reported: Here for example is a Hasbara Fellowships homepage for American students wanting... Read More

I was walking down Ventura Blvd. a few days ago, when I saw a wiry Latino man lying in the driveway leading to the big parking garage. I went over and told him to get up, somebody was going to to make a quick turn into the driveway and crush his skull like a ripe... Read More

From the Jewish Journal of Greater L.A. (via MondoWeiss): David Brooks’ Son Is In the Israeli Army: Does It Matter? by Rob Eshman 2 days ago One of the more interesting nuggets buried in a long, Hebrew-language interview with New York Times columnist David Brooks in the recent Ha'aretz magazine is the revelation, toward the...

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

I wanted to come back to the popular NYT Magazine article "Why Do Americans Stink at Math?" about how they teach math better in Japan, as you can tell because Japanese students average a higher PISA score than American students. According to the article, the Common Core now offers us another opportunity to teach math... Read More
