Jack Ohman cartoon, The Sacramento Bee: California is a riot!
I wasn't closely following the midterm elections campaign, but the results seemed to be about as expected for Donald Trump and the Republicans. With some races still undecided, the Democrats will apparently pick up close to 35 House seats, giving them solid control, and also a half-dozen governorships, while losing at least a couple of...

Some may be aware that when I originally established The Unz Review over four years ago one of my main motives was to have a convenient venue for my own writing, a situation necessitated by my removal as Publisher of The American Conservative. However, other matters intervened, and all but a few months of my... Read More

Another month, another Shortly before 4pm on Tuesday, September 20th, Officer Brentley Vinson of the Charlotte police force shot and killed 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Both the shooter and the shootee were black. As usual in these cases, we got a Narrative about an

Headline on Drudge.
Continuity is comforting. The sun rises, the value of pi remains unchanged, businesses burn, cars are smashed, and rioters with the minds of children and the hormones of adults throw bricks at the police. All in good fun. These incidents seem to come at shorter intervals. In characteristic confusion, in Milwaukee the mob believed that... Read More

Reaction to the recent Milwaukee riot has followed a predictable script and for liberals this requires insisting that that blacks themselves are largely blameless for the “uprising.” But, even if liberals admit that some Milwaukee residents were guilty, they will nevertheless claim that these miscreants, typically unemployed school dropouts, are only a minuscule element in...

Among the many factors that contribute to death is one that is scarcely noticed: a deadly self-conception. The classic example is the person who defines himself as a fearsome, brave warrior anxious to risk everything—including almost certain death—for personal glory. The pursuit of pleasure can also be self-destructive. For example, in the 1970s and 80’s... Read More

Trump Has Thumbs On Evil Party’s Windpipe (If RATS Don’t Stab Him In The Back)
Dallas sniper victims Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarippa, Michael Krol, Michael Smith, Lorne Ahrens--R. I. P
As everyone surely knows, on Thursday evening citizens of Dallas, Texas were holding a demonstration in that city’s downtown, good-naturedly chanting Suddenly there was shooting from a high building nearby,

For me the central tragedy of this week is not the massacre in Dallas, horrific as it is. It is the video shot in Falcon Heights of the aftermath of the police shooting of Philandro Castile. Absolutely wrenching to watch. And it should be watched to the very end. It is a heartrending depiction of... Read More
From the NYT: A big factor is that the nice white liberal Democrats of New York defeated five consecutive Democratic candidates for Mayor from 1993 through 2009, instead electing crime-fighters Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg. You can see Bloomberg's stop-and-frisk program in the graph below of "Change in Weapons Cases Since 2001." While there is... Read More

For a short while, the thing called “gun violence” was uppermost in the minds of the blabbering class. Two lovely young people, Alison Parker (news reporter) and Adam Ward (photojournalist), of Roanoke, Virginia, were gunned-down on live TV, is a scene reminiscent of the film
With the Los Angeles suburb of Compton back in the news due to the hit biopic "Straight Outta Compton" about the 1980s gangsta rap group N.W.A., it's worth noting that Compton has a pretty interesting real estate history. In the 1950s and 1960s, Compton represented the black version of what Kevin Starr and Benjamin Schwarz... Read More

Making Things Worse
Note: Last week’s column on evolutionary biology was a total spoof with imaginary brain anatomy and so on. Some people took it seriously. My apologies. It never stops, and won’t. Another state of emergency in Ferguson. Headline: “

How Can We Prevent Future Dylann Roofs?
Very soon after Dylann Roof murdered nine blacks in Charleston, it became clear to me that the nation was reacting in ways that would make similar killings more likely. I thought it was important to explain to as large an audience as possible that what were doing was a mistake. I have been shut out... Read More

Rural Wisdom and the Gathering Storm
The furor over the Confederate flag, think I, has little to do with the Confederate flag, which is a pretext, an uninvolved bystander. Rather it is about a seething anger in the United States that we must not mention. It is the anger of people who see everything they are and believe under attack by... Read More

I Hear the Fat Lady Singing
As a certified member of the curmudgeon's tribe, practicing our dismal and lonely trade, I am delighted by the events in Baltimore. Among curmudgeons, almost our only joy is the gratification of confirmation of our dark expectations of humanity. In the case of Ballmer, a particular source of somber joy is the gap separating the... Read More

In Ferguson blacks are shooting policemen as others cheer .It does a curmudgeon’s soul good: Everything gets worse, the collapse continues, and unreasoning stupidity goes thundering into the future. We will hear I... Read More

If They Don't Want to be Policed, Don't Police Them
It is obvious, is it not, that all of the recent problems with the police have occurred because cops keep meddling with people. If the fuzz had left Rodney King alone, Los Angeles would not have burned. If the cop in Ferguson had not stopped Michael Brown after he robbed the store, the town would... Read More

Are the recent disturbances in Ferguson, New York City and elsewhere the opening act of yet more race-related urban rioting? Are we about to return to the 1960s when a “minor” traffic stop gone awry can lead to dozens of deaths and urban landscape that resembled Berlin circa 1945? Such racial turmoil is conceivable. Few...
