There is material reality and human reality. The reality of dollars and cents AND the reality of emotional value. You may buy or sell a car, but you would not sell your child. Car is a commodity, a child is not. Some parents give up their kids, but they are not allowed to sell them--unless... Read More

One conception of race is that it is skin deep, and is no more than a matter of skin pigmentation. By implication, such a categorisation is superficial, trivial, and unlikely to be an explanation of any presumed racial differences in behaviour. There may be effects due to people making unwarranted assumptions based on skin colour,... Read More

Our topic today is “Is race an important topic or a fiction?” And so, I'd like to begin our discussion of the concept of race with a reminder that historically race referred to ethnicity as well as physical characteristics. But before I do that I'd like to explain the difference between categories of the mind... Read More
Leftist lies about the human brain: an anti-racist propaganda poster
“Shocked, confused, and frankly horrified!” As Steve Sailer has reported, that’s how an anti-racist radiologist called Luke Oakden-Rayner sums up the reaction of himself and other medical researchers to a dark, dangerous, and deeply disturbing discovery in artificial intelligence (AI). What have they found? That AI has what Oakden-Rayner calls the “worst superpower.” It’s guilty... Read More

Back in May, the Scientific American published an article on “The Forgotten History of the World’s First Trans Clinic.” Having written an essay on Jewish ‘sexology’ in 2015, it came as no surprise that the Scientific American opened the piece by celebrating the fact this clinic, Institut füer Sexualwissenschaft (the Institute for Sexual Research), “was...

Edward Dutton, Making Sense of Race, Washington Summit Publishers, 2020, 359 pp., $24.99 (soft cover) The first chapter of Making Sense of Race ends with these words: “Clearly, race is a biological reality. It needs to be understood. The most up-to-date research on it needs to be widely known. Its implications need to be explored.... Read More

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
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
See also: Is VDARE.COM "White Nationalist"? One of the things we have to deal with on a regular basis—like taking out the trash—is answering attacks on us. This is our answer to the current Wikipedia item about VDARE.com. Wikipedia has developed from its earlier wildness to a relatively useful general reference on uncontroversial matters. However,...

Superior: the return of race science. Angela Saini. 4th Estate. London. 2019. Excitedly promoted in national newspapers, glowingly reviewed in Sunday magazines, the author interviewed on national radio, this book is part of a mainstream narrative which promotes the ascendant public stance, which is that race does not exist as a useful category, and that...

Review of Ed Dutton’s New Book
Race Differences in Ethnocentrism Edward Dutton Arktos, 2019. Watching his incredibly entertaining Jolly Heretic You Tube channel, it’s easy to forget that Ed Dutton is also an extremely serious, and increasingly prolific, researcher, author, and scientist. The recent publication by Arktos of Dutton’s Race Differences in Ethnocentrism follows closely in the wake of Dutton’s At... Read More

Beating Malaysia, Vietnam has just been crowned the soccer champion of Southeast Asia. With its short men boasting negligible muscles, this corner of the world is not known for its athletic prowess, so the world took no notice of this prize, understandably. Champion Vietnam is only ranked 100 by FIFA, but it took considerable effort... Read More

It’s not a shock that Postmodernism has taken hold of subjects such as Literature or Social Anthropology. The more subjective the subject is, the easier it is for ideology to infiltrate it. But surely quantitative science—like genetics and physics—will survive as a fortress of logic? Wrong. An article this week in The New York Times... Read More

David Reich [Email him] Professor of Genetics at Harvard, has published a book about ancient human DNA: Who We Are and How We Got Here. He heralded publication with a March 23rd New York Times op-ed [How Genetics Is Changing Our Understanding of ‘Race’ ] that got the chattering classes a-chattering and the sputtering classes...

"The National Question: Race, Ethnicity, and Identity In the 21st Century"
[As reported here last week, I was scheduled to speak to a student group at Williams College in Massachusetts on Monday, February 22nd. However, the President of Williams College, Adam Falk [Email him] , banned me from his campus on the grounds that I am a speaker of “hate speech.” For updates, check out the... Read More
The first recorded race riot in Camden occurred on September 12th, 1864. The Philadelphia Inquirer: No one died that day, and of the nine people arrested, seven were black. In mid 19th century America, it was apparently a crime for a black man to be chased out of a bar, down the street, into his... Read More
Some of you may have encountered a popular meme, shared by many celebrities and other people in the spotlight. Well in this post, I wanted to fix it just a bit: We've seen similar corrections to false PC memes, like the one at the left. But the above meme on the "racist brain" is clearly... Read More

Every Tuesday the print edition of theNew York Times includes a Science section. I don’t bother with it much, in spite of having been a science geek since infancy. Like most aspects of our metropolitan culture, the NYT Science section has been colonized by the hipster lifestyle. Girly concerns dominate, and there is very little... Read More
On May 27, a 34-year-old black male named Derrick Todd Lee was arrested in Atlanta for the serial murders of five women in Baton Rouge, LA, between September, 2001 and last March. Mr. Lee will be tried for the murders in due course, but how he was captured tells us something important about the realities... Read More
Superstitions about race never seem to die, in large part because those who peddle racial pseudo-science get funding and publicity from the U.S. government. The Public Broadcasting System has just finished airing a three-part wallow in brainwash called "Race: The Power of an Illusion," which purports, as an academic it interviews spouts, that "Race is...

Two of the major superstitions of our time are the notion that man is merely a blank slate whose behavior is merely the product of the social environment and its sister, that race doesn't exist. Yet one by one, the pseudo-scientific sources of these myths are being discredited by serious scientists, and last week, one... Read More
The nation was shocked, shocked to learn that the Rev. Jesse Jackson, speaking at Michigan State University last week, doesn't like the Founding Fathers of the American Republic, thinks they were racists and sexists, and believes that democracy in America dates only from the enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. So what else... Read More
When the Human Genome Project (the vast plan to decode and map all the genes of the human body) was completed last year, the first pronouncement about it from many scientists was that it proved "race doesn't exist." The claim was not new. The notion that race is merely a "social construct" and a "biologically... Read More
