The racial dimension to the Corona virus has fascinated me since the outbreak began. Despite some ethnic Europeans having caught it, including white Americans trapped on a quarantined cruise ship off Japan which has turned into a floating Corona epidemic [Indiana woman is latest Diamond Princess cruise evacuee to test positive for coronavirus, by Jackie Salo, New York Post, February 19, 2020], it’s still true although as of today (February 20) no white people have died of the virus as far as we know. Two people in Iran have just died of Corona [Coronavirus: Iran reports two suspected fatal cases at Qom hospital, BBC News, February 19, 2020], but this doesn’t necessarily undermine the argument that Corona is primarily—but, of course, not necessarily exclusively—an East Asian disease. Let me elucidate.  

It is certainly interesting that two deaths have been reported in Iran. According to many U.S. statutory bodies, including the Census Bureau, Iranians—and all people of Middle Eastern descent—are “Caucasian” and are, therefore, categorized alongside “Europeans” for official purposes. Consequently, in the US, Iranians are legally “White,” this being the closest available option to what they are.

Egyptian journalist Sarah Essa has written: “I don't think I’ll ever forget my Rutgers undergraduate application, which read, ‘White (including Middle Eastern, such as Egyptian).’”  Some Middle Easterners in the U.S., needless to say, claim this is a conspiracy to deny them victim status—what Steve Sailer calls the “Flight from White” ['White' minus privilege: 2020 US census erases Middle Easterners, North Africans, by Sarah Essa, The New Arab, December 31, 2019].

In genetic terms, it is true that North Africans and Middle Easterners are very similar to “Europeans.” This is why psychologist J. Philippe Rushton used the broad “Caucasoid” racial category in his analysis of racial differences Race, Evolution. and Behavior. He compared “Caucasoids” (which also encompassed South Asians a.k.a. Indians) to “Mongoloids” and “Negroids.”

Each of these broad categories, however, were composed of a number of narrower races. And some races, such as Australian Aborigines, did not fit into the three categories at all.

But with regard to Europeans and North Africans/ Middle Easterners, the two groups’ gene frequencies cluster sufficiently differently that they are usually categorized as separate “races” beneath the Caucasoid umbrella, as in Frank Salter’s book-length analysis On Genetic Interests.

The unprovoked killing by government forces of five Shi'ite protestors in the Persian Gulf statelet of Bahrain, headquarters for the U.S. Fifth Fleet, turns out upon examination to be deeply intertwined with Bahrain's troubles with diversity and immigration. And they turn out to be uncomfortably not completely dissimilar to ours. The indigenous population of Bahrain is about two-thirds Shi'i...

On Monday, Tucker Carlson described the ripoff Red China has perpetrated on California’s state pension fund CalPERS. Tuesday’s opening added details to that story, but more importantly, he explained the many ways that influential Americans have been bought off by the Chinese communists to serve their nefarious ends. It’s both shameful and dangerous. The detailed report deserves your careful attent...

Illegal aliens now are quite open about their defiance and contempt for American immigration law. Their flagrant attitude is only encouraged by Sanctuary Cities and politicians who pander to them. Sadly, there is still no fear in their hearts of the Trump Administration, something that is essential for all law enforcement, but particularly for immigration law enforcement. If a criminal does not fea...

Wednesday night in Las Vegas, Mayor Mike Bloomberg learned what it is like to be thrown up against a wall and frisked.

At the opening of the Democratic debate, his first, Mayor Mike was greeted by his nearest neighbor on stage, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, with this warm welcome:

"We're running against ... a billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians.' And, no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg."

Bloomberg was not only charged with misogyny and sexism but racism for his stop-and-frisk policy, which the NYPD pursued during his three terms as mayor. By Bloomberg's own admission, stop and frisk singled out black men between 16 and 25.

Undiscussed were the positive results of the policy.

Gun homicides in New York fell to levels below those attained by his predecessor, Rudy Giuliani. And if those most often frisked were black and Hispanic men, the lives saved and the woundings prevented were also mostly those of people of color.

Vox has a thing called 6 myths about the history of Black people in America today, and I wondered if they were, in fact, myths. (Frequently features called "Myths and Facts About", for example, immigration, black crime, guns, et cetera will feature facts that are myths, and myths that are facts.) But in this case, black professor Sowande Mustakeem is taking on what we've called the "Tuskegee Libel....

From Commentary: A Bellow from Franceby Christopher Caldwell … The Elementary Particles is a veiled autobiography, and a frontal attack on the culture of the 1960s. To understand the centrality of that decade to Houellebecq’s worldview, it helps to know something about his childhood, which resembles that of no public figure so much as that of Barack Obama. He was born on Reunion Island, in the mid...

American patriots already live under a de facto social credit system, but now it looks likely to become a de jure regime. The New York Times recently published an op-ed by a Democrat Congressman and a Muslim former FBI Special Agent complaining that “no white supremacist group has ever been designated a foreign terrorist organization under federal law” [We Once Fought Jihadists. Now We Battle White Supremacists, by Max Rose and Ali H. Soufan, February 11, 2019]. Yet who defines “white supremacist”? If it’s the Main Stream Media and the Anti-Defamation League, there will be a lot of “white supremacists”—probably including VDARE.com. The real truth is the opposite:  there is now a Totalitarian Left in this country. And it’s increasingly obvious that our much-touted “liberal democracy” can’t stand up to it.

Congressman Rose and former FBI special agent Soufan claim that some “white supremacists” traveled to foreign countries and that this justifies labeling certain groups as “foreign terrorist organizations”—which would allow law enforcement to “monitor communications” as well as to “bring charges for providing material support to the designated groups, with appropriately severe penalties attached.”

The FBI obviously should combat terrorism. Yet it should be fighting the act, not selectively going after particular ideologies—especially when entrapment and process crimes are so important to the way the FBI operates.

I wonder if any liberals are re-thinking their insistence that the Boy Scouts allow gay men to take 13-year-old boys on overnight camping trips.

HEADLINE: Boy Scouts Files Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the Face of Thousands of Child Abuse Allegations

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have long been on the left’s hate list. Any organization that has the temerity to train young men in the virtues of integrity, patriotism and self-reliance is putting itself on the fighting side of liberals!

At the 2000 Democratic National Convention, a little group of Boy Scouts took the stage as part of the opening ceremony—and were promptly booed by the delegates.

For decades, the BSA has fended off lawsuits demanding that they embrace the holy trinity of G's: girls, gays and godless atheists. (If only it had occurred to the plaintiffs to start their own organizations! They could have given them names like “The Girl Scouts.”)

Why would any liberal want to join an organization that was, according to them, sexist, Bible-thumping and bigoted? They didn’t. The lawsuits were kill shots.

The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy this week amid a deluge of sex-abuse lawsuits. The Catholic clergy's pedophilia conspiracies have cost the church more than $3 billion and countless followers. Scandal after scandal shows how cunning child predators have exploited trusted civic institutions under cover of "diversity," "inclusion" and "progressivism."
