Harold Covington’s Northwest Novels
The War on Whites is moving to a higher level — fast. Signs are everywhere; they are undeniable. First and foremost, understand and accept that this is happening. For many, there will be no escape. If you are White and don’t yet grasp what is happening, quickly find out from someone who does. Lives will... 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
Earlier: Georgetown Law Prof Says She Feels Angst Over Low Performance Of Her Black Students, Gets Fired and Second Georgetown Law Prof Is Out. His Crime? Saying "Mmmhhhhhh" Eleven years ago I spoke at a conference organized by the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. I gave them a... Read More
Some blame a quasi-free-market in electricity for the collapse of the electrical grid in Texas, during a winter snow storm, mid-February, in which temperatures hovered at 0°F (or -18°C). The same people finger deregulation and isolation from the national and neighboring grids. Opposing opinion has it that an excessive reliance on renewable energy sources, like... Read More
Yes, the Third Reich is undergoing resurrection, but not by white supremacists. It is the white liberals in the Democrat Party and their presstitute propaganda machine—New York Times, CNN, NPR, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the rest of the presstitute whores— that comprise the new Nazi movement. The only difference is that this time the target... Read More
It will be difficult or even impossible to go back to a system where learning is actually a discipline that requires hard work and dedication. Public education in the United States, if measured by results, has been producing graduates that are less competent in language skills and dramatically less well taught in the sciences and...

I’ve put aside two hard-hitting essays regarding the ongoing assault on Whites in the United States because I suspect readers need a break from the relentless negative news we’ve all been exposed to. I confess I’m more than guilty of pointing out how rapidly the situation of Whites has become exceedingly bleak, I suffer from... 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
On occasion a reader takes exception to my description of Americans as insouciant. It is not our fault, the reader says. We are misled by disinformation fed to us by media and authorities we can no longer trust. In a way the reader has a point, but not really. Anyone who can recognize disinformation and... Read More
California has basically a one-party system. Though it technically discounts about 35% of voters, few would argue with the conjecture that everyone in California votes Democratic. And yet even in a state notable for progressive groupthink, there are numerous shades to the way people vote, especially down the ballot, and with regard to Propositions. Through... Read More
The Nasdaq stock exchange has told its listed companies that they must appoint to their boards a “self-identified” female and a lesbian or transgender or some other sexual deviant or be delisted from the stock exchange. Think about this. A stock exchange has no right to structure the corporate boards of the companies listed on... Read More

Justice for Box Turtles! Reparations for Potted Plants!
Headline “Fairfax school board eliminates admissions test at Thomas Jefferson High School” probably America’s most demanding school for science and technology. Oh god, Oh god. Who is on the school board? Predictably education majors, the dimmest, lowest SAT-scoring dregs of the professional classes, the horror of smart students subjected to their grade-school mentalities. But not... Read More

Like the Energizer Bunny, radical egalitarians are a persistent bunch. They have long kidnapped Mother Nature and tried to torture her into transforming human nature, but being a tough old bird, she’s held steady. The latest egalitarian machinations can be seen in New York City where the quest is to equalize race-related academic achievement and,... Read More

As Joe Biden and Donald Trump wrangle over the results of the 2020 Presidential election, a strong pattern has emerged across all 50 states. According to results on various referendums and ballot measures, voters by and large have rejected most of the Republican Party's economic platform and the Democratic Party's cultural program, regardless of which...

Thomas Jefferson High School
Demographic change has remade the Old Dominion. Once reliably conservative, Virginia is now a blue state. Non-white immigrants and white liberals moving to Northern Virginia (NOVA) lead this sea change. Arlington, once home to Robert E. Lee, and Alexandria, once a city that honored the Confederacy, are occupied territory. Liberal whites and Asians face a... Read More
After 55 years of special privileges and special pleading for black Americans, where do we stand? Integration has failed. Black Americans, or more correctly, those who speak for them, want black-only towns, black-only college dorms, black-only dining halls, and a black national anthem. Except for the black anthem, that’s what they had a half century... Read More
Saturday morning was sunny and bugs screaming and buzzing, at least in my part of West Virginia, and it was nice and cool. Bugs is pretty much like folk. The boy bugs holler or buzz or I don’t know what all so the girl bugs will love them and they can get laid, and then... Read More

As everyone knows, over the last couple of decades California has become a one-party Democratic state. Democrats hold a better than three-fourths hyper-majority in the State Assembly and their control is nearly as overwhelming in the State Senate. California has our nation's largest Congressional delegation, but of its 53 members only seven are Republican. Not... Read More
President Donald Trump is losing the suburbs. A June poll found that 65 percent of suburban voters had a favorable view of Black Lives Matter. A more recent poll reports that most Midwestern voters prefer Joe Biden over President Trump on race relations, protests, and “law and order.” Just 11 percent of suburban white voters... Read More
The judicial activism juggernaut, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), announced that it will be suing the Trump administration to veto new changes the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has implemented to the Fair Housing Act. The alterations were made in the interest of protecting quality of life and staving off multiculturalism in... 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
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

YOU FLY into London on a British Airways plane on which you are shown an animated film about safety. It stars a cartoon Black man with his cartoon White wife and their cartoon mixed-race child. You pass through immigration control and are poked and probed by Brown people wearing hijabs and turbans who jabber at... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I greeted my July 11th issue of The Economist magazine with mixed feelings: For a fleeting moment I thought the "new ideology" that The Economist was talking about might be honest race realism, and that what's wrong with it from The Economist's viewpoint, which...

Before our Black Lives Matter moment, one had not thought of the NBC networks as shot through with "systemic racism." Yet, what other explanation is there for this week's draconian personnel decision of NBCUniversal chairman Cesar Conde. According to Conde, the white share of NBC's workforce, now 74% and divided evenly between men and women,... Read More

It is truly a melancholy sight to walk through the great cities and towns of the West today and observe the countless corpses of Black scientists, engineers, and philosophers left behind by the brutal White officers of the law.

Caldwell's THE AGE OF ENTITLEMENT
The 1960s forever transformed America. Race relations, sexual relations, popular culture, music, foreign policy, trust in government, and urban life were all dramatically changed. It’s not uncommon for conservatives to lament the 60s, though few have done it as boldly and convincingly as Christopher Caldwell in his latest book The Age of Entitlement: America Since... Read More
See, earlier, by James Fulford: Disparate Impact: Legal And Political Last week's item about jaywalkers in New York City brought in some emails. It referred to complaints that city cops issue jaywalking tickets disproportionately to Sun People, i.e. blacks and Latinos. Sun People are only 55 percent of New Yorkers, but they get 90 percent...

The racial preference zombie lives on, at least according to Judge Allison Burroughs of the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts in a decision upholding Harvard’s admission’s policy of favoring less academically qualified blacks and Hispanics over Asians. We are told, for the umpteenth time, that despite their lackluster academic records, blacks and Hispanics should be... Read More

See, earlier, The Fulford File, By James Fulford | Disparate Impact: Legal And Political A ripple of horror ran through the excruciatingly PC-compliant government of Baltimore County, Maryland last week after President Trump’s Justice Department filed a suit against the county for racial discrimination in the police department. Council member Wade Kach (R) [Email him]... Read More
Of 895 slots in the freshman class of Stuyvesant High in New York City, seven were offered this year to black students, down from 10 last year and 13 the year before. In the freshman class of 803 at The Bronx High School of Science, 12 students are black, down from last year's 25. Of... Read More

Today all manner of curiosities, as I once called them, propose that whites pay reparations for slavery. For example, our Democratic presidential candidates. Well, I am joining them. Yes. I am for reparations. It is only just. Once I lived in moral darkness, and thought reparations was crazy as Aunt Sally, that we kept in... Read More

Americans generally take a dim view of lying and liars. We venerate George-“I cannot tell a lie—Washington and those giving testimony in court must swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth and those lying under oath risk being be found guilty of perjury, a felony punishable by up to five years in...

"Though New York City has one of the most segregated schools systems in the country," writes Elizabeth Harris of The New York Times, until now, Mayor Bill de Blasio "was all but silent on the issue." He was "reluctant even to use the word 'segregation.'" Now the notion that the liberal mayor belongs in the... Read More

“Affirmative action” means hiring people because they can’t do the job well. Near-synonyms are “diversity,” meaning groups that cannot do the job well, and “inclusiveness,” which means seeking people who you know cannot do the job well. These underpin American society, and have ruined education. For some time the sciences seemed less susceptible to the... Read More

As individuals, we want the best doctors treating and operating on us, the best pilots flying the airplanes we board, the best engineers designing the bridges we cross, the best scientists inventing and bringing to market the medicines and potions we ingest. Yet the American Idiocracy is moving to equate merit-based institutions with institutionalized racism.... Read More
Identity Politics is turning white people into a delegitimized group that it is permissible to hate and to discriminate against. White Americans are being turned into undesirables and are being delegitimized just as Jews were delegitimatized in Nazi Germany. Curiously enough, as I understand it, the Identity Politics being used to delegitimize white people has... Read More

The phrase “angry white males” has been around awhile, but Donald Trump’s election has pushed it to the forefront. Indeed, at least for some, it is central to Trump’s election. As Steven M. Gillon put it in The Washington Post, “Donald Trump has tapped into this anger and manipulated it to his political advantage. The... Read More

The Extraordinary Case of Macklin Fleming and Affirmative Action
I recently got to meet social psychologist Lee Jussim [Email him] of Rutgers University. Back in 2001 I had reviewed a book Dr. Jussim had written in collaboration with two other scholars, book title Stereotype Accuracy: Toward Appreciating Group Differences. My review was titled “Stereotypes Aren’t So Bad,” which is more or less the message... Read More

The state of our military is a bit worrying. Those of us with family members serving have more to worry about than the average. I have no doubt our soldiers, sailors, and airmen will do their fighting best with any mission we assign them. But politicized leadership and stupid ideas about human nature may get... Read More

When the Justice Department announced its investigation into Harvard’s possible racial discrimination against Asians, almost on cue the usual suspects came forth with all-too familiar rhetoric on affirmation action. For liberals it was all about keeping our cherished diversity or helping the disadvantaged; conservatives meanwhile lectured on merit-based admissions or how preferences will stigmatize beneficiaries...

On Radio Derb recently I have been promoting a theme of “academic nationalism.” Higher education, I have argued, is a precious resource; and our own citizens should have first call on it. As I observed in the February 17th podcast: I enlarged on this theme March 17th, commenting on an article in The Economist’s bimonthly... Read More
Imagine Judge Chuang was white, and spoke at an American Renaissance conference. Then we might see some impeachment!
Another week, another Executive Order on immigration, another effort by judges to block it. Like a great many of our other problems, this one is a result of gross stupidity on the part of our federal government in the recent past. Here I get to repeat one of my favorite apothegms: The most astonishing statistic... Read More

Does anyone remember my column of nine years ago called “Letter of Termination to the White Race?” I don’t believe we know who really wrote this letter — or why, but the point is, it paints a chilling picture of what is in fact happening to the White race right before our eyes. For instance,... Read More

As the troubled Obama presidency winds down, the inevitable question is why so many people, including a few smart ones were so easily fooled. How did a man with such a fine pedigree—Columbia, Harvard—who sounded so brilliant pursue such political capital wasting and foolish policies as forcing schools to discipline students by racial quotas? Or... Read More

“Strengthening families” is big in Hillary Clinton’s immigration platform—not American families, but families of undocumented Democrats. To that end—and “within her first 100 days in office”—Hillary has vowed to “introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship.” These newly minted Democrats will be speedily naturalized (likely in time for Hillary’s second...

The recent campus events have not been especially good for fans of academic integrity.
