"Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country." So declared Sen. Tim Scott, a Black Republican, in his televised rebuttal to Joe Biden's address to Congress. Asked the next day what he thought of Scott's statement, Biden said he agrees. "No, I don't think the American people are racist." Vice President Kamala Harris also... Read More
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!”
Though Flannery O’Connor didn’t live long, she left us some of the best stories ever written. It’s impossible to overpraise “A Good Man Is Hard to Find,” “The Life You Save May Be Your Own,” “The Displaced Person,” “The Artificial Nigger,” “Good Country People,” “Everything That Rises Must Converge” and “Revelation.” O’Connor’s liberal usage of...

Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: DUNKIRK: “People Should Be Hung From Lampposts, They Should Be Burned Alive, For What They’ve Done To Britain” Last week saw the publication in Britain of a report from something called the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. This commission was set up last year by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson,... Read More
An official UK report “Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities” has got into trouble by coming to the wrong conclusions. It has stated that the UK is not a racist state, and although there are instances of racism, in most ways the UK is a model of non-racism. The report says that the main source... Read More
The government is back to its well-tried Inspector Clouseau mode with a public inquiry intended to discredit accusations of institutional racism that has done the exact opposite. This bit of self-inflicted foot-shooting came soon after half-baked efforts to suppress a protest on Clapham Common that guaranteed it worldwide publicity. The twin debacles have significant features... Read More
Eye-roll of the month was surely the Biden Administration telling us that the invasion of our country from the south is not a crisis, merely a challenge. When the managerial class tell us that something or other is a challenge, you can be sure it's a disaster caused by their own crackpot policies. I covered... Read More
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have a large media following as victims of royal family racism. Meghan who reportedly has African-American DNA looks anything but African-American and has a far lighter skin color than the suntanned American blue-eyed blonds I see on the beach in North Florida. They made... Read More
This is an extraordinary – and dangerous – five minutes of “mainstream” TV. It is five minutes of a black women’s rights activist trashing Piers Morgan to his face and on his own show, Good Morning Britain, as he tries to defend the Royal Family from the fallout of the Meghan and Harry interview. Shola... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier by Steve Sailer: Biden Vows To Rip Out Roots Of Systemic Racism, i.e. Seize The Equity In Your Home You have surely heard the phrase "Systemic Racism" recently. What is it, though? A friend has directed my attention to a speech by Derrick... Read More

Since the 1960s the federal government has initiated countless programs to close racial gaps. All have failed, some have even exacerbated these gaps, but failure aside, all posited logical connections between the program and the intended beneficial outcome. Head Start, for example, rested on the plausible idea that blacks disproportionately suffered early childhood deprivations, and... Read More
The Jewish State, by definition, rejects some and welcomes others into the fold. In “Is Israel Racist?”, a reply to an anti-Semitic interviewer (he bailed), the emphasis was on demonstrating why Israel’s particularism is an extension of the individual’s right as a sovereign, discerning human being, for the freedom to include or exclude is not... Read More
Some months ago, a gentleman who pens anti-Semitic tracts approached me for an interview. I agreed. Being a naïve methodological individualist, I never generalize about individuals. That my interlocutor writes crude anti-Semitic boilerplate did not mean I would not give him a chance to reveal himself as someone other than a crude anti-Semite. After I... Read More
The New York Times has published an important article that measures the economic gains that could be achieved if anti-black discrimination were ended. In “Racism Impoverishes the Whole Economy,” Professor Lisa D. Cook of Michigan State University writes that “new research” finds that “discrimination inflicts a staggering cost on the entire economy, reducing the wealth... Read More
Pundits and polls are at one in predicting a victory for Joe Biden over Donald Trump in the presidential election, portraying the vote as a non-military rerun of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863, when the north defeated the south in what is regarded as a turning point in the civil war. The violence will... Read More
Earlier: Kamala Harris—A Barely-Black ”Immigrant American”? During an early Democrat Presidential candidates’ debate, Kamala Harris painted an ugly picture of American racism, recounting her alleged experience as a young student on a school bus in progressive Berkeley, CA’s public-school integration program. But the fact is, racism ran deep in her Indian mother’s Hinduism and its... Read More
Mary Bucholtz is professor and chairperson of the Linguistics Department at the University of California at Santa Barbara. She declared all white Americans, including herself, to be racists. Indeed, she claims America is suffering a pandemic of white supremacy. Let’s see now, if white Americans are white supremacist racists, why did they let their white... Read More
House Financial Services Chair Maxine Waters and Senator Elizabeth Warren have introduced the Federal Reserve Racial and Economic Equity Act. This legislation directs the Federal Reserve to eliminate racial disparities in income, employment, wealth, and access to credit. Eliminating racial disparities in access to credit is code for forcing banks and other financial institutions to... Read More

An Intellectual History of the Last One Hundred Years
One morning a couple of years ago I received an urgent email from a moderately prominent libertarian figure strongly focused on antiwar issues. He warned me that our publication had been branded a "White Supremacist website" by the Washington Post, and urged me to immediately respond, perhaps by demanding a formal retraction or even taking...

Let's assume that Black Lives Matter is not a "social justice" movement, but a corporate-sponsored public relations vehicle that's being used to advance the agenda of elites? Is that too much of a stretch? And let's say that the massive protests that erupted across the country were not random or spontaneous events as some people... Read More
Above, the head of the Black Psychological Association, Theopia Jackson, and the CEO of the American Psychological Association, Arthur C. Evans Jr. [Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] As I start writing here on Friday morning, the news headliner is that Michael Reinoehl was killed Thursday evening in a shoot-out...

Tucker Carlson demonstrates some of the monstrous lies that Democrats and presstitutes tell with a straight face— . These extraordinary lies reveal the great extent of collapse in the moral fabric of our society. Such blatant lies demonstrate that power is the only political virtue for Democrats and that power has crowded out integrity, of... Read More
Walking up to my local chain drugstore, I saw a two-panel notice that I hadn't seen before, pasted on the inside of the automatic glass door. Left panel, blue letter on white: Right panel, white letters on blue: The quote is attributed to Heyward Donigan, President and CEO of Rite Aid. "A home"—what? So I... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] There wasn't actually as much WhoWeAre-ism at this week's Democratic National Convention as I anticipated. Incredibly, Barack Obama got through a whole 19-minute speech without a single Who We Are. His lady Michelle made up for it with three Who We Ares in her... Read More
Those who are working overtime to delegitimize white Americans have coined a term that they use as a weapon—“white privilege.” The propaganda is that being white is a racial privilege that elevates white Americans above other Americans and enables white people to oppress blacks. It doesn’t strike those who use the term as a weapon... 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
Racism is a lot of things. One thing it is not: A white child, aged five, executed by a black man with a shot to the head, as the tyke rode his bike. Ask the cultural cognoscenti. They’ll tell you: That’s never racism. Otherwise, almost anything involving the perpetually aggrieved black community counts as racism.... Read More
The "systemic racism" refrain is a meaningless abstraction. Operationalize the nebulous abstraction that is “systemic racism," or get out of my face! To concretize a variable, it must be cast in empirical, measurable terms, the opaque “racism” abstraction being one variable (to use statistical nomenclature). Until you have meticulously applied research methodology to statistically operationalize... Read More
“Whites exist objectively,” said Sam Francis, “but do not exist subjectively.” Our political adversaries know we are white. Government policies track and sometimes penalize whites. Major corporations and government institutions promote an ideology of “white privilege.” However, many whites themselves don’t think of themselves as white or want to be seen as white. Unfortunately for... Read More

Wealthy suburban whites may put Black Lives Matter signs on their lawn, but that doesn't mean they want blacks in their children's school. The Donald Trump campaign's naked racial appeal to white professionals to keep blacks out of their suburbs has been received with discomfort and feigned outrage by Jewish media taste makers. Polls show... Read More

I first encountered Robin DiAngelo three years ago, during my investigation of the Jewish origins and intellectual currents of Whiteness Studies. DiAngelo was then just another relatively minor speaker and academic on the university/consulting network in Whiteness Studies, and I was undecided then, and remain undecided, as to whether DiAngelo is wholly, in part, or...

Well, from the lockdown. I hope readers are bearing up OK under confinement. The Derbs are keeping busy. Paid employment aside, she has her beloved flowers and innumerable contacts on WeChat, the ChiCom messaging app. I have home-improvement chores: this month, stripping out and rebuilding a bathroom closet for maximum accessible shelving—nearly 28 square feet...

Racism was stronger in the North than in the South
This article concludes this seven-part series on Lincoln’s war against the South. The war ended 155 years ago. In the century and a half since, the war’s history has been falsified and misrepresented as a righteous war by the freedom-loving North against the slave-holding South. The absence of supporting facts has not hampered this false... Read More
Some black Americans have created a black version of the KKK. They have even adopted similar terminology. The leader is called “Grand Master Jay.” The job of the organization, NFAC, is “to protect the black community” from white people. The KKK’s job was to protect the white Southern community, which was under attack by Reconstruction.... Read More
Nick Cannon (Credit Image: David Shankbone via Wikimedia)
Nick Cannon, an actor and singer, recently unbosomed some interesting anthropological theories. Mr. Cannon also claimed blacks are “descendants from God himself,” and discussed “the idea of having to define myself as a god.” He bragged about the power of melanin. I must lack soul, or, since I’m closer to an animal, I don’t have... Read More
White people of my generation were not racist. Why? We went to neighborhood schools, and black families were still intact in those days before white liberal welfare destroyed black families. Perhaps there is something to “white racism” after all. A few years ago I was speaking with a white female schoolteacher about her problems of... Read More
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
White people are under siege across America. The latest outrage is the story of Braden Fields, an Ohio State University student who brags about tormenting white women with bogus racism accusations and acts of violence on his twitter account @cloutlordbray.

I’m not going to claim that I have been totally 1488 from day one or that I came goose-stepping out of the womb. But I think I have always been instinctively and intuitively a race realist. Or at least, I have been since around the age of 8. The first black person I ever met... Read More
An observation
Palestinians are ‘Jews’ in the eyes of those who plunder their land, their homes, fields and olive groves. They are ‘Jews’ to those who abuse their human rights and squash their hopes for peace and justice. Blacks are ‘Jews’ in the eyes of those who dare compare them to ‘monkeys.’ They are ‘Jews’ in the... Read More
White consciousness is rising throughout the country. It’s supported by the most powerful institutions in our society. It’s sweeping all regions, classes, and subcultures. It’s just not the racial consciousness we want. Still, we can turn it to our advantage. There’s no escape from race. While Americans are stuck at home because of the coronavirus... Read More
President Trump is making plain the degree to which the country remains divided by the American Civil War. His threat to veto the $718bn Defence Bill if it renames military bases called after Confederate generals harks back to 1861. His stand highlights the bizarre way that the US military has named its biggest bases, like... Read More
Tonight at 9 PM Eastern Time, James Allsup of Fash The Nation and Dissident-Mag will be teaming up with this author to debate Youtubers Destiny and Vaush V on the question of systematic racism and policing on the channel Modern Day Debates. This should be a high energy and strongly contended debate. Catch it live... 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
The presstitutes’ story is that George Floyd died from asphyxiation—“I can’t breathe”—from a police officer’s knee on his neck. This story is not supported by the autopsy and toxicology reports. The autopsy report says Floyd died of a heart attack and that no life-threatening injuries were inflicted by police restraint. The medical examiner found no... Read More
I told you this would happen. The ignorant mobs destroyed a Ulysses S. Grant monument along with a statue of George Washington. class="Apple-converted-space"> Will the Lincoln Memorial be next? The dumbshit northern liberals used racism to express their self-righteousness by demonizing the South without having the wits to realize that they made “white” and “racist”... Read More
Everyone knows that Leftists are hypocrites. White “Black Lives Matter” protesters who have incited and even participated in horrifying disorder, demanded the abolition of the police, and “taken a knee” to virtue-signal, returning home to overwhelmingly white, safe suburbs. Social Justice Warriors who proclaim that all races are “equal” in every way, and vociferously condemn... Read More
Culturally informed by Roman Catholicism's expectation that regret must prompt an apology as well as penance, Western European tradition calls for a rhetorical journey by politicians who claim to have changed course. A chastened leader should explain why and how he came to his previous belief, explain the circumstances that changed his mind and make... Read More
Jamie Dimon and JP Morgan Chase
I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the US are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc. As for the violence, looting and riots - they are... Read More
Years of teaching blacks to have grievances against white people for things that happened centuries ago have come to fruition. Rioting and looting are not enough, the violent thugs and ignorant woke creatures are pulling down historic monuments in public parks and defacing public buildings while police and public authorities stand down. In Richmond, Virginia,... Read More
