In 2019, the New York Times Magazine published a series of articles with the theme that the true date of America’s birth was 1619. The anchor piece of this 1619 Project series, called “The Idea of America,” asserts that the arrival of African slaves to the Virginia Bay Colony was the start of everything that... Read More
The 1896 Supreme Court Plessy decision, which gave us “separate but equal” is widely considered today to be incorrect. Legal scholars maintain that the private railroad company violated the Constitution by separating people in railway cars on the basis of race. Justice John Marshall Harlan’s dissent–“Our Constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes... Read More
As if on cue, only a couple of weeks after my article wondering whether – given its bizarre admissions formulae – Harvard was any longer fit for purpose comes the astounding story of Kaitlyn Younger (see Douglas Belkin, “To Get into the Ivy League, Extraordinary Isn’t Always Enough These Days,” Wall Street Journal [April 21,...

Earlier by Nicholas Stix: Yes, Virginia (Dare), Black Supremacism Really Is A Thing We live in a world of anti-white hatred for myriad reasons, including the now-sacramentalized anti-white “Civil Rights Movement.” But yet another reason is the anti-white Mainstream Media and its black Leftist satellites, such as the viciously anti-white, Official Black Voice, The Root....

As the U.S. prepares to confirm to the Supreme Court a black woman who cannot define the word “woman” [Blackburn to Jackson: Can you define ‘the word woman’?, by Myah Ward, Politico, March 22, 2022], we are reminded of the fact that Ketanji Brown Jackson has been nominated because she is a black woman, not...

Earlier: A Talk Radio Listener Comments On Ketanji Brown Jackson's Qualifications—And Unknown LSAT Scores The Senate Judiciary Committee, as I'm sure you know, has been holding confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the president's nominee to replace retiring justice Stephen Breyer in October. I can't say I've followed the hearings closely…or at all, really.... Read More
Ever since the beginning of humanity, man has been seeking the perfect political/economic system. In the 18th century, egalitarianism gained a foothold in France and slowly spread to the rest of the civilized world. Slavery was gradually abolished as people’s awareness of equality gained ground. Absolutism was replaced by constitutional monarchies, democracies, anarchism, communism, and... Read More
Justice Stephen Breyer of the Supreme Court’s liberal wing is retiring. This gives President Joe Biden a chance to nominate a “progressive” justice. He has promised to choose a black woman — affirmative action at the highest levels. New York Times columnist Charles Blow said there should be a nominee like Thurgood Marshall, whose “entire...

President Biden has announced that his nominee for the Supreme Court will be a black woman. Rather than asking, “Who is the best qualified?” he will be asking “Who has the right sex and skin color?” According to a 2019 report, only 3.4 percent of sitting judges are black women. The president is therefore limiting... Read More

The Regime Media is upset that the U.S. Supreme Court has accepted a case challenging Affirmative Action in college admissions [The Supreme Court adds affirmative action to its potential hit list, by Nina Totenberg, NPR, January 24, 2022]. And maybe it should be. In the famous case of Marbury v. Madison, Chief Justice John Marshall... Read More

or, Will Exhibiting Art by Black Artists End Rioting and Looting?
The US is in the grip of a terrible pox but unlike COVID-19 that targets individuals, this rampaging pox undermines institutions. It is, moreover, everywhere, and those spreading it are relentless. Remarkably, however, it lacks a name and, worse, its spreaders are convinced that the damage is actually “doing good.” What is this Pox without... Read More
Not even doctors are immune to diversity rubbish. This video is available on Bitchute. The other day I made a video called “Diversity or Standards: You Can’t Have Both.” I pointed out all the standards that have fallen in the name of diversity – in law enforcement, schools and colleges, employment, and even historical accuracy....

And the white man has got to go. This video is available on BitChute and Brighteon. In America, you can have either diversity or you can have standards. You can’t have both. And since diversity – especially racial diversity – is our number-one goal, it’s standards that have to go. Consider crime. To America’s everlasting... Read More
The latest census reports that America’s white population declined for the first time in history. Other groups grew. Non-whites are replacing whites, but the Great Replacement is a “conspiracy theory” if white advocates mention it. To the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin — once the paper’s “conservative” columnist — it is “fabulous news.” This would be... Read More

“Facing Reality” is Murray’s lament for America. He dissects the two key problems of race, and prescribes a reaffirmation of the American Creed of equality under the law, but is hoping against hope that those noble aims are achievable, and doubts his suggestions will be heeded. His short book might be briefly summarized as: “It’s... Read More

You might well ask why the world’s most expensive army can’t fight
Too many American politicians at all levels of government have come to believe that your money is their money. Federal, state and local tax rates are set annually and often arbitrarily based on the issues that elected officials and tax managers consider to be important. Input from the public is basically unwelcome except at election... Read More

Methinks the US may very well be heading toward a social explosion. The phrase “race war “is overwrought if it implies organized units and chains of command. However, in a country awash in firearms, a bloody, disorganized, continent-wide eruption is possible. To think “it can’t happen here” is complacently inattentive. We have already seen it... Read More

I've been telling myself for twenty years that America’s ongoing Cultural Revolution couldn't get any worse. But year by year it has gotten worse. The Red Guards now control all our major media outlets, including of course Social Media, and the entire educational system, public and private, from kindergarten to the Ivy League. This new...

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier this year I read Christopher Caldwell's very striking book The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties. Caldwell argued that the reforms of the 1960s, which seemed necessary and humane at the time to correct obvious injustices, had serious negative consequences, leading eventually... Read More

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

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.

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...

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

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

[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

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.

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
