"We Are Building Society On A Delusion"—A Race Realism Primer

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 always the worst. There is only one official explanation for this. It’s the fault of white people.

But racial discrimination has been illegal for more than half a century. There are now built-in advantages for black people called affirmative action and diversity goals. That’s why Critical Race Theory now says white people are oppressing black people whether we want to or not. It’s our nature.

Is that really believable? Are we unconsciously oppressing black people? Isn’t it plausible to ask whether, on average, the different races might not have the same abilities? Couldn’t it be that most of the time in America, people of all races rise and fall according to their abilities?

At some level, almost everyone knows that races are different. The Tokyo Olympics are going on now, and I can make a prediction with complete confidence. Blacks who come originally from West Africa will dominate the sprints, and blacks who come from East Africa will dominate the long distances. It’s been that way for at a long time. Here’s Jesse Owens beating the white guys in the 1936 Olympics, 85 years ago.

Just seven weeks into his presidency, Joe Biden signed a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. Among the largest spending bills in history, it was passed without the vote of a single Republican. The plan sent direct payments of up to $1,400 to most Americans, extended a $300 per week unemployment insurance boost until Sept. 6 and expanded the child tax credit for a year. It also put $350 billion into...

At what point will those pushing Critical Race Theory (CRT) just come out and say white people should commit compensatory suicide for merely existing? Isn’t that the true way to end white privilege, structural inequality, implicit bias, and forever eliminate food deserts, the threat of redlining coming back, and truly atone for the legacy of Jim Crow?

As I pointed out in 1997, over the last quarter of the 20th Century, a narrowing gender gap in Olympic sprinting races is less often proof of the triumph of feminism than proof that runners are getting away with taking more Performance Enhancing Drugs. Because anabolic steroids are artificial male hormones (with some but usually not quite all the virilizing effect of natural male hormones taken o...

[See Also: Inevitable Re-Colonization? EU Weighs Occupying Libya, May 13, 2015] On the list of recent American interventions, Libya is clearly among the most catastrophic.

The sickening lynching of Gaddafi didn't e...

Su Bingtian of China ran 9.83 to be the fastest qualifier in the men’s 100 m dash semifinal.

After 72 consecutive black finalists over the last 9 Olympics, the Streak is over. He’s the first Asian 100m male finalist since Takayoshi Yoshioka in the 1932 Los Angeles Games....

Sleeping prone is harder than you'd think.     As followers of Radio Derb are aware, I was out of action for a couple of weeks there in mid-July.

What happened was, I broke the First Rule of Being Over Seventy.

First Rule of Being Over Seventy:  Don't fall!

Fortunately I didn't break anything else. I was tidying up the home gym when my feet got tangled with each other somehow. I lost balance, keeled over, and landed with my full weight (180 lbs.) on a stray dumbell. The point of impact was quite precisely the fleshiest part of the human frame—well, of mine—and that accounts for no bones having been broken.

The dusky melancholy sprites who afflict us with minor troubles, thus frustrated in their attack on my skeleton, took their revenge on my soft tissues. Over the next week I developed the Mother of All Bruises: a vast black terrain of shattered capillaries and homeless blood.

I could not sit; my right hip joint went on strike; standing for long was painful; likewise lying down in any normal position. My only relief was to lie prone, face in a pillow, chancing suffocation. It is actually possible to sleep in that position, although it took me three or four unhappy nights to master the art. Sleeping prone is harder than you'd think.

Now, at month end, everything's much better. The Mother of All Bruises faded from black to purple and split into lesser units. Watching this day by day has brought to mind plate tectonics: one of those YouTube clips of Pangea, the ancient super-continent, breaking up into Africa, Asia, the Americas, and so on.

As my dear mother used to say: Worse things happen at sea. I am sure there are people reading this who have far greater misfortunes to contend with. My honest sympathies. I wouldn't have given as much of an account as this, but people have been asking.

Earlier, by Paul Gottfried: Did Pre-MLK America Really Need Redemption?

I'm going to offer for your consideration what Winston Churchill would have called a naughty question. Here's my naughty question: Is Jim Snow worse than Jim Crow?

I need to define terms here. For 245 years this country of ours has lived more or less uncomfortably with the fact that a big minority of its population is black while the rest, the majority, isn't. The size of the minority has dwindled some since Independence, when we were 16 percent black; today it's 13 percent.

You can break that 245 years into three segments, marked off by two significant events: the end of the Civil War in 1865, and then the Civil Rights revolution, for which the 1964 Civil Rights Act is a convenient marker. That gives you 89 years of slavery, 99 years of Jim Crow, and 57 years of Jim Snow.

Those latter two segments are what I'm comparing: Jim Crow, when blacks were under legal disabilities in some states and social disabilities most everywhere, and Jim Snow, when blacks enjoy preferences and favoritism, "racism" is a sin of well-nigh religious gravity, and a white person who expresses negativity towards blacks is excluded from polite society and social media.

An authentic National Conservative Right has been breaking through one barrier after another over the last few years. First it was the Alt Right, then it was the Dissident Right, then it was America First, and tomorrow the leading brand will be something else. However, though all these iterations are different in some respect, the core of the argument remains the same: America must take its own side. We are a nation, not a landmass or simply an ideological project. And at every stage, Conservatism Inc. has joined with the Left to repress what’s emerging. Needless to say, National Cuckview is wielding the shiv.

In his final state of the nation speech Monday, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte defended his refusal to confront China over Beijing's seizure and fortification of his country's islets in the South China Sea. "It will be a massacre if I go and fight a war now," said Duterte. "We are not yet a competent and able enemy of the other side." Duterte is a realist. He will not challenge China to retri...
