First-time author Rafael A. Mangual is a son of Dominican and Puerto Rican parents. Trained as a lawyer, he now is a public policy analyst with the Manhattan Institute and contributing editor to its flagship publication City Journal. Mr. Mangual lived to the age of nine in a sketchy Brooklyn neighborhood, at which point his... Read More
In 2013, I published a photo essay of Minneapolis that showed how foreign and non-white huge swathes of the city had become. Recently, I visited the city for the first time since the riots in 2020, and went back to Lake Street, a major road and the site of most of my 2013 photos. Things... Read More
George Floyd died at the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis. At the time, it was one of the busier junctions in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. Since then, it has become an “autonomous zone” like the more famous one in Seattle. Unlike “CHAZ,” this experiment in anarchy has not been shut down.... Read More
There has probably never been a time when the media and the public — especially blacks — have been more hostile to police officers. The three men who were helping Derek Chauvin try to arrest George Floyd (pictured below) are on trial in a case that, in normal times, would never have led to indictments.... Read More

The identity of Ashli Babbitt’s murderer has been revealed as Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd, a negro. The negro Byrd had previously been sanctioned for leaving his loaded gun in a public bathroom at the Congressional Visitor Center while kids were on a tour there. NBC News interviewed him. They sent the black guy, and basically... Read More

The death in police custody last year of a violent felon whose heart stopped while resisting arrest led to the worst rioting in U.S. history. It has also led to much soul-searching, as Blacks in America wonder if they can continue to live side-by-side with Whites. There is increasing evidence that Afro-Americans are simply not... Read More
For years, anarchists and black grievance groups have been smashing, vandalizing and defacing statues and monuments dedicated to white people, who they dislike for racial reasons. Politicians and law enforcement have either expressed support for the criminal behavior or refused to prosecute it. Now, statues and murals dedicated to George Floyd are, according to the...

When I was 8 years old, I discovered my parents’ record collection. It had all of the boomer classics. This was the first time I listened to David Bowie’s “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.” I wasn’t quite ready to understand Pink Floyd’s The Wall or The Who’s Tommy...

Gender-fluid Damarra Atkins worships at a mural of George Floyd in George Floyd Square, Minneapolis
It’s a perfect image for our insane and ugly age: an overweight gender-fluid Black woman in a Wu-Flu mask pressing her head in worship against a giant mural of George Floyd at the site of his martyrdom in Minneapolis. The martyr is ugly, the mural is ugly and the mourner is ugly: In its ugliness,... Read More
At this writing, in mid-May, 2021, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been convicted by a jury of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd during Floyd’s arrest. Chauvin hasn’t been sentenced yet. The first charge carries a maximum of forty years in prison. Chauvin was one of... Read More
The lesson of Officer Derek Chauvin’s show trial, a trial as crooked as any experienced by black Americans in the demonized South, is that police training needs to be changed. Chauvin is the victim of many years of media emphasis on police brutality against black Americans. According to reports, US police, or many of them... Read More
As people of good will celebrate or merely breathe a sigh of relief in response to the conviction of Minneapolis former police officer Derek Chauvin for the videotaped murder of George Floyd, it is worth noting that this victory likely would never have occurred had it not been for a spectacular act of property destruction....

The American Establishment uses the presstitute lie machine to control the narrative for most of the world by broadcasting disinformation in 59 languages. Countries and their news services rely on “news” from the US to comprehend world events. Most of the world has little alternative to American news sources except for the BBC which is... Read More

Democrats prepare to eliminate opposition to woke culture
So what was preordained has finally taken place. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has now been convicted of the murder of George Floyd. While many, possibly even most, Americans would agree that Chauvin exceeded what was necessary in his use of force, the prosecution never proved that he intended to either kill or severely...

Watch Ilana Mercer's discussion with David Vance on the role of “racism” in the George Floyd trial, based on the column, “Was The Cop’s Knee On George Floyd’s Neck ‘Racism’? No!”
Many Americans saw former policeman Derek Chauvin’s conviction on all counts last week as affirming the principle that no one is above the law. Many others were concerned that the jury was scared that anything less than a full conviction would result in riots, and even violence against themselves and their families. Was the jury’s...

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] It’s St. George's Day, April 23. This has actually been St. George's week; not the chap who slew the dragon, but St. George Floyd of Minneapolis, who was slain himself last year by something much more fearsome than any dragon—by systemic racism! So the... Read More
How can America unite again to do great things if we are led by people who believe America suffers from a great sickness of the soul, an original sin that dates back to her birth as a nation? Consider. After his long night of prayer for "the right verdict" to be pronounced -- Derek Chauvin... Read More

Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts for the “murder” of the beatified George Floyd. The jury, consisting of only two white men among twelve, found him guilty within a matter of hours. It was a quick decision that sent a clear message to America: black lives matter more than yours. Despite being... Read More
“Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them.” – Thomas Jefferson The trial was pointless. We knew... Read More

The jury has found Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts. It took fewer than 24 hours to reach a unanimous decision. I have argued all along that an acquittal was impossible, no matter what the evidence showed. No jury, anywhere in the United States, could have found Mr. Chauvin innocent after nearly a year...

Outside the Hennepin County Courthouse on Tuesday morning, a crowd chanted, “If George don’t get it, SHUT IT DOWN! If George don’t get it, SHUT IT DOWN!” while the jurors deliberated inside. Although 14 jurors heard the case, Judge Peter Cahill excused the two alternates after closing arguments on Monday, and Jurors #96 and #118... Read More
I was hopeful that Russian-based news sources such as RT and Sputnik would do a better job than the American presstitutes. To an extent, RT and Sputnik do a better job than the New York Times and CNN. RT and Sputnik report news that otherwise doesn’t see the light of day. But RT and Sputnik... Read More

Court began with discussions outside the presence of the jury. Derek Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, objecting to the prosecution’s plan to call another use-of-force expert. He said it would only be repetition of what other witnesses have said. Earlier, Judge Peter Cahill cautioned prosecutors about “cumulative” witnesses, and said he would not let them bring...

Evidence is coming out in the courtroom, although not in the US media, that Officer Chauvin’s arrest was based entirely on “camera perspective bias,” as I previously reported. As the police videos demonstrate, Chauvin’s knee was on Floyd’s shoulder blade and not on his neck. My opinion is that evidence will play no role in... Read More
This is the first celebrity mass shooter that I’m aware of. It’s a pretty novel story, which the media is completely burying with George Floyd, Joe Biden’s gun control agenda, DMX and of course, the deadly coronavirus. USA Today: A prominent local doctor, his wife and their two young grandchildren were among those killed Wednesday... Read More
The American Establishment is determined that Chauvin will not get a fair trial. Chauvin is the Establishment’s showpiece of white racism. The point that is being made is that the KKK is alive and well, only instead of a noose it is knee-on-neck. An unthinking and unaware Chauvin gave them the video that they needed.... Read More
An attorney who is monitoring the trial of officer Chauvin has concluded that Minnesota officials arranged in advance Chauvin’s conviction. The attorney is not a member of Chauvin’s defense team. He is monitoring the trial because of his long-standing interest in the systematic destruction in America of a fair trial. The details follow: Minneapolis paid... Read More
he United States now has attributes of the 20th century totalitarian regimes that it opposed. The New York governor is implementing the hated Soviet internal passport that prevents freedom of movement, and the illegitimate Biden regime is working with private firms to create a nationwide internal passport. American elections mean no more than Soviet ones.... Read More
Friday, as the jury was being empaneled for the trial of fired police officer Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis City Council voted 13-0 to approve a record $27 million civil settlement with the family of George Floyd over his death in police custody. The jury will not likely miss this message sent by the city fathers:... Read More

Racism consists of a mindset or a worldview that boils down to impolite and impolitic thoughts and words written, spoken, preached, or tweeted. If that’s all racism is, you ask, then what was the knee on George Floyd’s neck? Was that not racism? No, it was not. On the facts, the knee on Mr. Floyd’s... Read More

Some Americans are so pathetic they don’t even know what gender they are. A female with a vagina thinks she is a male. A male with testicles and a penis thinks he is a female.
