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

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 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
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 ...

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...

The three hard science Nobel Prizes -- Physics, Chemistry, and Medicine/Physiology -- have been impressively resistant to the demands of the cult of diversity. Women have made up only 20 of the 607 winners, and I don't believe there's ever been a black winner in the hard sciences. But all good things must come to... Read More
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 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...

Economist Tyler Cowen of Marginal Revolution interviews Stanford economist Raj Chetty and borrows a number of his questions from my appreciative 2015 critique in Taki's Magazine, "Moneyball for Real Estate," of the flaws in Chetty's methodology in his huge and much publicized study of how income mobility over the generations varies by county across the...

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
I don't know for sure that Palo Alto, CA, the home of the venture capital industry and next door to Stanford U., is really the highest IQ town in America. The highest test score public schools in America are in Lexington, MA, a suburb preferred by Boston area college professors. And I imagine tiny, rich... 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.

Back in February, some readers of my Taki's Magazine column "Alexander Hamilton, Honorary Nonwhite" were baffled by why I was devoting so much attention to a Broadway musical about a rapping version of the apostle of Wall Street and limits on democracy. But time is validating my concern. From The Atlantic, a deeply self-serious article... Read More
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,...

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...
