Joel Kotkin is a funny fellow. His review of VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow’s 1995 immigration book Alien Nation was a vicious smear, even echoing the common paranoid complaint that Brimelow “repeatedly” referred to his blue-eyed blond baby boy (there was actually only one reference, in the unimpeachable context of the destructive effect of the interaction...

Johnny Williams is a black professor of sociology at Trinity College. He is best known for his inflammatory comments, often made on social media, especially his 2019 tweet, “whiteness is terrorism.” Prof. Williams wrote several columns defending that claim. In a May 1, 2019 column for Black Agenda Report (“Whiteness Explainer for Dummies“) he wrote... Read More

In my previous essay, I discussed my experiences as a faculty member at an American academic institution that has a far-left radical administration, faculty, and students, and how the social justice hysteria was affecting what was going on in the school. Having finished the first round of months-long “sensitivity trainings” and webinars, I’d like to... Read More
There is no man that university corrupts not
We can provide education for everyone, but we cannot offer everyone privilege. A conspiracy of Potemkin progressives and masochistic liberals have sold the general public the idea that we all can up-grade our lives by getting more education. Education is now seriously competing with work for the main pastime of our existence. Until the mid... Read More
Two Georgetown University law professors in a private conversation between themselves expressed concern that the students at the bottom of their classes were black. I believe the professors had some concern for the black students, but I am confident their main concern was “what are we going to do?” In American universities and public schools... Read More

No sane person wants to lie. Aside from whatever harm lying might cause, lying also chips away at a person’s dignity. Knowing that your words will quickly mold to a model other than Truth somehow cheapens you — as if any model will do. Expediency, authority, greed . . . it’s hard to think of... Read More

7 of 8 Ivy League Presidents Are Jewish
As American academia finishes transitioning into an even more intellectually repressive nightmare, talented professors are quitting and the value of a college education has plummeted. Ivy League schools naturally set the tempo for less prestigious colleges. Gender ideology and critical race theory begins to metastasize once the factories churning out tomorrow's elites institutionally embrace such... Read More
A soft-spoken liberal professor at the University of Vermont has had enough of the anti-white abuse he faces at his work place. Aaron Kindsvatter, who teaches courses on education and mental health, published a video on March 8th detailing the institutional discrimination and systematic racial dehumanization he and other whites on the UVM campus face...

An Arab-American once active in Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has been intimidated by Jews into renouncing his beliefs.

At the beginning of this month, I'd released eBook versions of my American Pravda and Meritocracy article collections, each running a hefty 300,000 words or more, and together containing nearly all my published writings of the last thirty years, with the bulk of the material having been produced in the last few. The response was... Read More
It’s one of the most interesting, enlightening and eye-opening books I’ve ever read: Simon Winchester’s Exactly: How Precision Engineers Created the Modern World (2018). Winchester tells a story of astonishing ingenuity, intelligence and effort from the steam-engine (44) to the “extreme ultraviolet” laser (296). And it’s almost exclusively a story of stale pale males—of White... Read More
This is part of our continuing series of accounts by readers of how they shed the illusions of liberalism and became race realists. There is little sympathy for academics among conservatives, and I understand why. Tenured academics have job security unparalleled anywhere but in government jobs, and spend most of their time either indoctrinating students... Read More

Several years ago I published a hardcover collection of my more substantial articles, entitled The Myth of American Meritocracy and Other Essays. More recently, various people had suggested that I produce a similar collection of my American Pravda articles, so I've now done so in an eBook format. The full title is Our American Pravda...

When I was a university student, the liberals’ motto was a quote attributed to Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” The liberals used this quote as permission to deconstruct the family, society, religion, and the belief system that held the diverse American...

On Your Own Time
In my working life, I regularly encounter people in public affairs with a total lack of interest in history. Even officials with PhDs who swear by democracy and the rule of law, and who claim to promote them, will tell me that a man like Alexis de Tocqueville is too ancient to be of any... Read More

First They Came for White Southern Males…
Many Americans woke up this week to the crystal-clear realization that we have entered a fifth generation (5G) civil war for control of this county – a culture war, yes, but much more than that. In this short essay, I draw from history to briefly reflect on what this means to me as a more... Read More

What will it take for most white people to wake up to the growing threat of dispossession in our homelands? It is a central question facing our movement. Some answers to that question can be found in a series of first-person accounts written for American Renaissance (organized here by perspective and available here in book... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The core ideology of our Ruling Class, which citizens contradict at peril of losing their livelihood, is Race Denialism.

This essay is drawn from the book Making Sense of Race, which can be purchased here. "Race" is a coherent biological category, as much as is "species," and the cases against it simply don't add up. Is "race" an outmoded, morally dubious idea that was deservedly cast into the dustbin of history, along with Stalinism,... Read More
White parents whose children are discriminated against by affirmative action and kept out of prestige universities resorted to a scheme run by sports coach Rick Singer that allegedly boosted their chances of gaining admission to prestige institutions. It cost the parents a lot of money and is now costing them prison time. Harvey Silverglate, a... Read More
For a number of years I have witnessed the disappearance of the white male from the publications and fund-raising materials sent to me by Georgia Tech and Merton College, Oxford University.

The scholarly art publication, ASAP Journal, recently published a new study by Juliana Spahr and Stephanie Young showing that literary prizes are being rigged by a clique of Jews and gay activists from a few Ivy League schools. Spahr and Young collected data from hundreds of award-winning poets and the often opaque panel of judges... Read More
There is no one to ensure the country’s future
The United States is a screwed-up country. It this regard, the US has few rivals. The legal voting age in the US is 18 years of age, which is also the age of female sexual consent and military enlistment. So at 18 years of age youth can affect the governance of the country, get legally... Read More
With free speech- and a student’s mind- under attack on all fronts on America’s university campuses, in a stunning and heartwarming tale the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals showed that it, too, likes a good joke. Thanks to the unanimous decision of the court, the University of California/ San Diego lost in its attempt... Read More

Having read deeply into the Jewish Question for almost 20 years, I’m always fascinated by novel objections to anti-Semitism. This was the case when I was prompted to turn to the writings of Curtis “Mencius Moldbug” Yarvin by a recent Keith Woods video (“Unqualified Reservations on Moldbug”). I think I first heard about Yarvin around... Read More

In both the United States and Europe there has been an increase in the passage of laws that are intended to protect Jews. Indeed, one might say that one of the few growth industries in Donald Trump’s United States has been the protection of Jewish citizens and their property from a largely contrived wave of... Read More
A Tribute to Professor Stephen F. Cohen
I was deeply saddened—and still in shock and grief—to learn of the death of Professor Stephen F. Cohen, not only because his was a voice of sanity and reason, a voice for peace in an increasingly fractured world, but also because personally I was always excited and delighted to read his books and see his...

The Merits and Inadequacies of Middleman Minority Theory in Explaining the Jews
An interesting accompaniment to Nathan Cofnas’s 2018 attempted debunking of Kevin MacDonald’s work on Jews was the subtle resurfacing of Steven Pinker’s claim that a more plausible theory of the Jewish historical experience can be found in “Thomas Sowell’s convincing analysis of ‘middleman minorities’ such as the Jews, presented in his magisterial study of migration,...

BEIJING – A couple of years ago I met a German man at Harvard who boasted about his political stipend, his up-coming talk in New York City, and how he worked hard on the liberalization of Tibet and the breaking-up of China. There are no human rights in China, he explained to me. I was... Read More

The Department of Justice has recently charged Yale University with racial discrimination in its undergraduate admissions and thus being in violation of Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. At least superficially, everything thus far follows a familiar, oft-repeated script that began in 1978 with the Bakke case. According to the DOJ probe, “Yale... Read More

The “Great Awokening”—the Maoist Cultural Revolution we are living through—is impacting academia heavily[The Great Awokening and the Second American Revolution, by Eric Kaufmann, Quillette, June 22, 2020]. We’ve seen the closing of the London Conference on Intelligence in 2018 and the firing of researcher Noah Carl by Cambridge University partly for attending the London Conference... Read More
If the definition of racism is deliberate discrimination based on race, color or national origin, Yale University appears to be a textbook case of "systemic racism." And, so, the Department of Justice contends. Last week, Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband charged, "Yale discriminates based on race... in its undergraduate admissions process and race is the... Read More
Tyranny rules the universities
Academics, if they are white, live in fear of their jobs. Professors lost their authority when administrations ceased backing them and instead allowed student complaints to result in investigations. Once an investigatory procedure is in place, it keeps itself funded by investigating. Feminist complaints, followed by political correctness, had the investigative process well oiled prior...

Now that statues of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant and Theodore Roosevelt have been desecrated, vandalized, toppled and smashed, it appears Woodrow Wilson's time has come. The cultural revolution has come to the Ivy League. Though Wilson attended Princeton as an undergraduate, taught there and served from 1902 to 1910 as president, his name... Read More

The ongoing anti-white rampage of the Unpopular Front -- Millennial lumpen-bourgeoisie, black criminals, academics, journalists, and woke capital -- has led to more questions than answers. Some call them communists, but the terrorists do not have any economic demands. On the contrary, they have a close relationship with corporate America. Conservatives are desperate to link...

This is an introduction to a letter written by a black American professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He says that the University no longer serves scholarship and has become a servant to the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter. He says that the university is akin to a suppressive regime that crushes real... Read More
This book, shortly to be published in the US, is written by a geneticist. Racism is a topic of contemporary interest, and there are certainly different conceptions of reality. The book is diminished by its title, which proclaims it an aggressive polemic, looking for a fight. “How to argue about race” would advertise a better... Read More
I have come to the conclusion that collectively Americans are mentally and emotionally stupid. On any given day there is endless evidence that this is the case. Just a few selections from news of the last couple of days should suffice to establish the point. Instead of reforming police training as a rational response to... Read More

Concluding one of America’s more infamous obscenity trials in 1964, Justice Potter Stewart absolved a controversial French motion picture with an opinion that has since passed into common parlance: “I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description; and perhaps I could never...

Back in the 1960s, the British academic establishment was rather excited about the work of Karl Popper, the philosopher who developed the concept of empirical falsification. Popper was keen to define the demarcation between the scientific and that which only mimics empiricism and scientism. A theory, according to Popper, can be considered scientific if, and... Read More

Adventures in Jewish Historiography
I’ve been fascinated in recent days by Jewish commentary on COVID-19, which ranges from paranoid conspiracy theories about white nationalists to blunt admissions of intense Jewish ethnocentrism. In the first instance, the FBI’s apparently permanent and unironic surveillance of teenage chat sites has resulted in a stern but ludicrous warning that “extreme right-wing groups in... Read More

The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project is the future of American education.

This morning (Januay 27, 2020) on NPR I heard a white female novelist describe her difficulty in getting her novel published. The problem was not that her novel was uninteresting or badly written. Her problem was that one of the characters was black. Unbeknownst to her, it is now considered cultural imperialism or cultural trespassing—some... Read More
