I’ve long been fascinated by the “controversial” British-Canadian psychologist J. Philippe Rushton (1943-2012), to the extent that I wrote the only book-length (by no means uncritical) biography of him: J. Philippe Rushton: A Life History Perspective. It’s equally fascinating to see a new study which, in essence, proves him correct—but whose authors cannot possibly bring... Read More
Composite faces of male athletes from different European nations, including Germany and the UK (from Dienekes Anthropology blog)
Eyes, nose, mouth, chin, cheeks, brows — all of those words are home-grown English. But when you put them together and view them as a whole, they turn French in the word “face.” That doesn’t happen in German, where home-grown Augen, Nase, Mund, Kinn, Wangen, Brauen come together as home-grown Gesicht. Faces, Races, Spaces German... Read More
The explanation you’re not supposed to know about. This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee. Last week, my video was about how r – K theory explains consistent patterns of racial difference in behavior. This week, I’ll talk about how the races became so different. The current theory is that modern humans first... Read More
In October 2021, Rutgers Professor Brittney Cooper said whiteness needed an expiration date and that “we gotta take those mother***ers out.” Christopher Rufo, an opponent of Critical Race Theory, seemingly discovered or rediscovered the clip and made it viral again. No doubt Professor Cooper would explain that she means “whiteness” as a social construct that... Read More
Richard Dawkins’ recent book Flights of Fancy (2021)
Will I ever stop hating on the Catholic Church and become a believer? Maybe. But if I do, it won’t just be Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, and Father Leonard Feeney who will have helped me kneel before the Queen of Heaven. It will also be Professor Richard Dawkins. Belloc, Chesterton, and Feeney have set me... Read More
It just follows the science. This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee. The Journal of the American Medical Association, or JAMA, was a prestigious scientific publication before it went soft in the head on race. Here’s an example from last month: “Brain Aging Among Racially and Ethnically Diverse Middle-Aged and Older Adults.” This... Read More
I think it was Steve Sailer who first observed that the now-ubiquitous initialism DEI, for "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion," should more properly be written DIE, as in: "DIE, WHITEY!" Nowhere is that more apt than in the field of medical education, as we were reminded early in November when the Association of American Medical Colleges... Read More
It’s not often that one reads an article that one disagrees with so strongly that one has to do the modern equivalent of writing a letter of protest to the local newspaper. However, this recently happened to me with regard to The Jews Are Ye’s Misfortune, [by David Cole, Taki’s Mag, October 25, 2022], which... Read More
Just how bad are they? This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee. The latest National Crime Victimization Survey, known as the NCVS, is now out. This one covers 2021, and it’s the only reliable nation-wide report on violent crimes that cross racial lines. Other reports may tell you how many blacks or whites... Read More
The fall of 1995 was a memorable time for those who were racially aware. Sam Francis had just been fired by the Washington Times for writing the truth about race. Pat Buchanan was scaring the Republican establishment by talking about immigration and affirmative action in his bid for the 1996 GOP presidential nomination. The O.... Read More
Reality is “racist.” There are racial differences and racial patterns that emerge consistently in different countries under vastly different circumstances. Our rulers invariably try to censor discussion of these differences. Let no one mock the medieval Catholic Church for its supposed restrictions on free inquiry. “Our Democracy” can be just as tyrannical. One man who... Read More
Our rulers want us to profess the preposterous. This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee. To be a respectable American, you must at least pretend to believe preposterous things: Diversity is our strength, men can become women and vice versa, all races are precisely equal, the United States is a wonderful force for...

American race relations exhibit a bewildering paradox: The more whites help blacks, the more blacks hate whites. The government has spent trillions to lift up blacks, who grow even more vehement about “toxic whiteness.” Ironically, the greatest beneficiaries, those owing jobs and university admissions to naked racial preference, are the most vocal in denouncing “white...

[Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively on VDARE.com.] I hold the eccentric opinion that effective social policies should be based on truth about the world. That includes the biological world—the world of living creatures, to which our species belongs. Social policies that are not thus based will fail, leaving society—that's us—worse off... Read More
But they can’t hide the truth forever. This video is available on BitChute. Some people want you to stay ignorant. They just don’t want you to know, especially facts about race. The less you know, the easier it is to push egalitarian propaganda. Let’s look at some examples. The College Board publishes AP exams. Every... Read More
Earlier (2003!) by Steve Sailer: The Wind from the South—Anti-White Populism A loyal VDARE.com reader recently sent me Michael M. Rosen’s piece in the Washington Examiner that tried to explain Venezuela’s economic and political collapse [How Venezuela was destroyed from within, July 14, 2022]. Rosen blamed corruption and the socialist economic policies of successive regimes.... 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. On a Fourth of July back in the mid-1990s, my friends and I gathered with some 300,000 other Bostonians on the banks of the Charles River to listen to the Boston Pops... Read More
Happy Memorial Day. At the end of the Mexican-American War, some politicians were opposed to this peace, and wanted the USA to conquer the entirety of its southern neighbor. Here is John C. Calhoun’s full (race realist) argument against the idea. Resolved, That to conquer Mexico and to hold it, either as a province or... Read More

Stephen Sanderson is the author, coautho, or editor of sixteen books in twenty-two editions and some seventy-five articles in journals, edited collections, and handbooks. He is a retired professor of sociology and is quite unusual within his discipline for applying evolutionary principles to the study of society. His latest offering, dedicated to J. Phillippe Rushton,... Read More
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...

Since early colonial times, and until just a few decades ago, virtually all whites believed race was a fundamental aspect of individual and group identity. They believed people of different races had different temperaments and abilities, and built markedly different societies. They believed that only people of European stock could maintain a society in which... Read More
xrays-of-race
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
Racist. No word has such power. It can end careers, embitter families, and provoke amazing displays of cowardice. But the word means nothing anymore. It’s doubtful if it ever did. Until recently, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) had a definition of racism most Americans would probably agree with: “Racism is the belief that a particular race... Read More
“He ain’t heavy: he’s my brother,” sang the Hollies in 1969. A few decades later, an enterprising individual in the northern English city of Leeds could have sung an interesting new variant on those lyrics, namely: “She ain’t heavy: she’s my next rape-victim.” Yes, late one night in 2015 the individual in question literally carried...

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...

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The only way to get rid of a temptation, said Oscar Wilde, is to yield to it. I shall therefore begin with some ruminations on the year that has gone. Then I shall turn and speculate about the year that is arriving. As Robert... Read More

Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s founding father and long-time prime minister (1959–1990), should be a role model for nationalists across the West. Lee was not a philosopher but a practical politician, so his insights are not theoretical but the product of three decades of leadership. Lee was able to adapt to changing circumstances, eliminate Communist threats,... Read More
. This is adapted from remarks given at the 18th American Renaissance conference on November 13, 2021. Video of the speech is available here. Before I begin, I’d like to quote what Regime Media has to say about us. This is from WPLN News, Nashville Public Radio. They accused us of promoting “racist ideas” under... Read More
Headlines have to grab attention, and the two headlines in the Sunday Times certainly did that. Usually considered a mildly conservative Sunday paper, with a circulation of 648,000 it is twice as popular as the next rival, the Sunday Telegraph. A Sunday paper is often the one that families are most likely to read and... Read More

How “Race-Blind” Libertarianism Is an Ally of Race-Obsessed Wokism
“The left can be divided into three groups: the stupid, the deluded and the evil.” That’s the best summary of left-wing politics that I know. The only difficulty can be in deciding who on the left belongs where. For example, Hillary Clinton and Merrick Garland are clearly evil. But is the former Labour leader Jeremy... Read More

This is adapted from remarks given at the 18th American Renaissance conference on November 13, 2021. Even before I begin, I imagine most of you have probably sensed at one time or another that envy does play such a role in race relations. Many writers have alluded to it in passing, but I have never... Read More
It takes an unusual person to be a race realist.

Earlier by F. Roger Devlin: Charles Murray's FACING REALITY: Ruling Class Must Accept Race Differences—Or Provoke The "Disaster" Of White Identity Politics Charles Murray (The Bell Curve, Coming Apart, Human Diversity) is rightly bitter about the disgraceful shut-out of his latest book Facing Reality: Two Truths About Race from the current U.S. and international debate—actually,...

The Crest of the Peacock (1991) has a beautiful title and an ugly purpose. The book takes that title from a line in an ancient Sanskrit text: “Like the crest of a peacock, like the gem on the head of a snake, so is mathematics at the head of all knowledge.” (p. v) So much... Read More

The evidence that genes influence intelligence and other personality traits is so overwhelming that even a few lefties no longer deny it. But, oh, how they agonize over how to reconcile science with the religion of equality. How do you justify massive social intervention when the people you are trying to help might not be... 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....

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
The terrible legacy of Richard Lewontin.
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

See, earlier, by Steve Sailer: The Race FAQ Crossposted from Amren.com Americans can’t stop talking about race and racism. Why? Because black people don’t do as well as white people. They are poorer, more likely to be in jail, they are fatter, more likely to have illegitimate children, and the black part of town is... 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
Politicians, public health authorities, and many journalists demand that Americans trust “the science,” but “the science” is often not science but dogma. Soon after taking office, Joe Biden said his administration would “lead with science and truth.” Should we have expected fantasy and lies? Vice President Kamala Harris said: This is true, but people don’t... 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
John McWhorter
John McWhorter, who teaches at Columbia, is one of a handful of blacks who write sensible things about race. He complains that the media bellow whenever police kill a black man but are silent when they kill a white man, and worries that claims of “systemic racism” are leading to a movement to exempt blacks...

Charles Murray, Facing Reality: Two Truths About Race in America, Encounter Books, 2021, 151 pp., $25.99 (hardcover) Sometimes, a single brave man can break a taboo. Nicholas Wade’s carefully argued May 5 article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists broke the ban on the lab-leak view of the origins of Covid-19. In just a... Read More
It is difficult to overstate the significance of Charles Murray and Richard Herrnstein’s The Bell Curve to the thinking of pre-Alt Right White identitarians, specifically its section on the cognitive and behavioral differences between the races. The dominant mission of the movement then was propagating the forbidden truth of racial differences. When I first became... Read More
