As I've often pointed out, the existence of official government reports is important in establishing the respectability of a topic. For example, before the release of the Rotherham Report in 2014, it should have been obvious to anybody who didn't have his head buried in the sand that England had a massive problem with Pakistani...

From the opinion section of The Guardian: Last year in Taki's I pointed out that it's interesting that the Great Awokening began not long after the collapse of Occupy Wall Street in late 2011. Perhaps the rise of Woke Capital was a response to the Occupy movement to exacerbate Occupy's tendency to fragment into identity... Read More

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: Yousef Omar Barasneh appears to be the son of a Jordanian Muslim immigrant father and a head-covering wearing Muslim mother.

From the New York Times news section: If Germany really wanted to do the world a huge favor to make up for certain unfortunate events of the 20th Century, it would undertake to show the world how to make nuclear power safe.

For thou shalt worship no other god: for Diversity, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous god.
The first wave of advanced baseball statistics analytics coincided with the Steroids Era, which the ambitious sabermetricians were curiously unable to detect despite their statistical sophistication. The second wave of analytics, as exemplified by the Houston Astros, seems to be coinciding with a bunch of old fashioned ways to cheat like stealing signals and using... Read More

As usual, I'm not going to watch the candidates' debate, but if you do, your comments are welcome. Lately, it's starting to look like Bernie, heart attack and all, just might be Last Man Standing.
In Education Week, a black lady reporter ponders a perennial question with less bigotry and hate than is the norm these days: Who's to Blame for the Black-White Achievement Gap? By Christina A. Samuels January 7, 2020 My SAT scores might have remained a bit of trivia had I not become an education reporter. But... Read More
As I've been pointing out for years, the main feature distinguishing Rotherham from many other cities in England where Muslim pimps also abuse underage English girls while the cops look away because they don't want to be seen as bigoted against Pakistanis, is that Rotherham commissioned an Official Report, published in 2014, that journalists could...

Do you remember the distant past when it appeared that there might be grounds for compromise on gun control: urban gun control advocates wanted to reduce the availability of handguns to urban criminals while the National Rifle Association advocated for rifles and shotguns to be available to hunters and target shooters? But nowadays urban liberals... Read More
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy winner, finished up a fairly good season Monday evening in a 42-25 win over Clemson in the national championship game.

From Lancet, the famous British medical journal, a book review: For some reason, this lengthy book review fails to mention Emmett Till was also killed by whiteness. Capitalizing "Black" but not capitalizing "white" is a dead giveaway of racist animus in a writer. It's like the OK sign is in the minds of ADL Hate... Read More
It's interesting how it is easy to come up with candidates for malign intellectual influence among left of center 1970s heavyweights -- e.g., Foucault, Edward Said, Stephen Jay Gould, or John Rawls. But who since then? Kimberle Crenshaw for inventing the term "intersectionialism"? The guy who invented "microaggression"? Not exactly heavyweights... I've often pointed out... Read More
With criminal justice "reform" much in the news, it's important to point out a fact that the prestige press has gone out of its way to not bring to the attention of readers: that the early returns on this Establishment hobbyhorse have been disastrous: after a number of years of stability or decline, the total...

And now Twitter wants to cancel Andrew Sullivan for his skepticism about the Conventional Wisdom's blanket dismissal of a certain "myth" about racial differences, even though I presume Sullivan has done a lot of first-hand hands-on fact-checking of this question over the decades ...

The Roman Catholic friends Hilaire Belloc and G.K. Chesterton were among the few writers in English in the first half of the 20th Century to predict the return of Islamic enthusiasm in the second half of the 20th Century.
