Amid the fury over the ex-Heritage staffer's work the question to ask is: was he right?
Amid loud cries of “Witch! Witch! Burn the Witch!” an enraged throng of ideological activists and media pundits late last week besieged the fortress-like DC headquarters of the conservative Heritage Foundation, demanding the person of one Jason Richwine, Ph.D., employed there as a senior policy analyst. The High Lords of Heritage, deeply concerned about any... Read More
Determining American reality is sometimes difficult due to the flaws of government statistics, with the contentious subject of race and crime being a perfect example. The FBI publishes a Uniform Crime Report, providing a vast quantity of public data on crime and arrest statistics, including the recorded race of offenders. Anyone interested in learning the...

His-Panic: The Myth of Immigrant Crime Ron Unz, The American Conservative (Print Edition), March 2010 ================== 1. Jews and The American Conservative Hunter Wallace, Occidental Dissent (62 comments), Jan. 26, 2010 "An important corollary is that Jews should be totally excluded from our media and organizations." 2. According to The American "Conservative", Khalid Sheikh Mohammed... Read More
I'm afraid that Jason Richwine's latest posting in the Great Hispanic Crime Debate makes a very silly claim. He seemingly comes close to accusing me of intellectual dishonesty for pointing out that the PPIC Hispanic incarceration data for California is within 10% of my own California figures for the 15-44 age range, arguing that I...

Kudos to Jason Richwine for his fine shoe-leather work in contacting the PPIC staff and determining that the ethnic incarceration figures provided in their 2006 report Who's in Prison? were already age-adjusted, which he mentioned in a weekend blog item, The Great Hispanic Crime Debate. I do think that anyone reading the explicit text on... Read More
With four long replies to my Hispanic crime article having appeared just in the last 24 hours, I obviously cannot respond to every point raised, but I’ll try to address the key issues. First, Jason Richwine’s article in AlternativeRight (Model Minority?) raises some perfectly valid points. He devotes the first half of his article to... Read More
My thanks to Ed Rubenstein for producing a fine rejoinder (Ron Unz Vanishes Hispanic Criminality ... Not!) to my own recent analysis of Hispanic crime rates (His-Panic). Most of the previous rebuttals to my original article seemed either utterly risible (Statsholic) or ideologically shrill and analytically weak (Unzism, a Dangerous Doctrine). Although I certainly disagree... Read More
My thanks to Matthew Roberts and Steve Burton (MR+SB) for publishing a detailed critique in Chronicles of my recent article on Hispanic crime rates. However, since I believe their analysis is largely mistaken, I'm providing a response: (1) One major point which they and various others have criticized is my effort to exclude federal inmates...

Talk TV sensationalists and axe-grinding ideologues have fallen for a myth of immigrant lawlessness.
According to Lou Dobbs, “a third of the prison population in this country is estimated to be illegal aliens,” and Glenn Beck regularly warns of “an illegal alien crime wave.” Congressman Tom Tancredo insists, “The face of illegal immigration on our borders is one of murder, one of drug smuggling, one of vandalism for all...
