“The hostility to genetics springs entirely from the fear that Mr. Watson will be proved right – that it will show blacks to be less intelligent than whites. Of course the politically correct don’t really believe in the intellectual equality of the races. If they did, they would welcome genetic research as a way of establishing the equality. You do not fear investigation unless you suspect it will give the wrong answer… Low intelligence, perhaps accompanied by poor impulse control, explains well the urban chaos, the crime, the poverty.” – Fred Reed, “The White Man’s burden: Reflections on the custodial state” – Fred On Everything, Jan. 17th, 2019. (You can read this highly informative article here.)

“…I’m not a supremacist of any kind. I don’t want to lord it over any other race or ethny; I just want to be left alone, and not see the country I live in swamped by millions of hard-to-assimilate foreigners.” – John Derbyshire, “White Supremacy, the Anglosphere, and CANZUK (CANZUKUS?)” – The Unz Review, Jan. 4th, 2019.

“Washington, D.C. City council just voted 10-2 to decriminalize fare evasion, the local news radio station reported, because ‘criminal penalties disproportionately affected African-Americans’… Got that? If blacks disproportionately violate laws or civilized standards, then the laws and standards must be amended or dropped to stop ‘disproportionate’ punishment. Of course, the only reason blacks are ‘disproportionately’ punished for fare evasion is that blacks disproportionately evade fares.” – Paul Kersey, “Diversity is strength! It’s also…fare evasion” – The Unz Review, Jan. 8th, 2019.

“Most Canadian job seekers would understand a ‘bilingual’ position to be demanding language skills in both English and French. But in the Greater Vancouver Area of British Columbia, ‘bilingual’ often refers to English and Mandarin… If familiarity with Mandarin (and sometimes Cantonese) is not a full-on job requirement, it may be listed as a ‘preferred qualification’, ‘strong asset’, or ‘big bonus’… popular ride-sharing apps Uber and Lyft are currently banned in B.C., but there are a handful of Chinese-language ride-sharing apps such as Udi Kuaiche and Longmao that serve only Chinese customers and will not pick up ‘Westerners’.” – Lindsay Shepherd, “Mandarin- the new job requirement in the Greater Vancouver Area?” – The Post Millennial, Nov. 24th, 2018.

“With the relatively recent rise of everything we associate with ‘culture’ – technologies like agriculture, metallurgy and eventually writing – much of this continuous ‘admixture’ began to give way, it seemed, to discontinuous episodes better characterized as ‘replacement’ or ‘turnover.’ That is, about 5,000 to 9,000 years ago, human history was, at least in a few crucial places, less about various groups coming together and more about some groups blotting out their neighbors… Now it seemed as though culture was less about the invention and spread of new ideas and more about the mass movements of particular peoples – and the resulting integration, outcompetition or extermination of the communities they overran.” – Gideon Lewis-Kraus, “Is ancient DNA research revealing new truths – or falling into old traps? – New York Times, Jan. 17th, 2019.
