Harold Covington’s Northwest Novels
The War on Whites is moving to a higher level — fast. Signs are everywhere; they are undeniable. First and foremost, understand and accept that this is happening. For many, there will be no escape. If you are White and don’t yet grasp what is happening, quickly find out from someone who does. Lives will... Read More
Two Georgetown University law professors in a private conversation between themselves expressed concern that the students at the bottom of their classes were black. I believe the professors had some concern for the black students, but I am confident their main concern was “what are we going to do?” In American universities and public schools... Read More

Yes, the Third Reich is undergoing resurrection, but not by white supremacists. It is the white liberals in the Democrat Party and their presstitute propaganda machine—New York Times, CNN, NPR, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the rest of the presstitute whores— that comprise the new Nazi movement. The only difference is that this time the target... Read More
I’ve put aside two hard-hitting essays regarding the ongoing assault on Whites in the United States because I suspect readers need a break from the relentless negative news we’ve all been exposed to. I confess I’m more than guilty of pointing out how rapidly the situation of Whites has become exceedingly bleak, I suffer from... Read More
This is part of our continuing series of accounts by readers of how they shed the illusions of liberalism and became race realists. There is little sympathy for academics among conservatives, and I understand why. Tenured academics have job security unparalleled anywhere but in government jobs, and spend most of their time either indoctrinating students... Read More
California has basically a one-party system. Though it technically discounts about 35% of voters, few would argue with the conjecture that everyone in California votes Democratic. And yet even in a state notable for progressive groupthink, there are numerous shades to the way people vote, especially down the ballot, and with regard to Propositions. Through... Read More
The Nasdaq stock exchange has told its listed companies that they must appoint to their boards a “self-identified” female and a lesbian or transgender or some other sexual deviant or be delisted from the stock exchange. Think about this. A stock exchange has no right to structure the corporate boards of the companies listed on... Read More
After 55 years of special privileges and special pleading for black Americans, where do we stand? Integration has failed. Black Americans, or more correctly, those who speak for them, want black-only towns, black-only college dorms, black-only dining halls, and a black national anthem. Except for the black anthem, that’s what they had a half century... Read More

Probably Not
As everyone knows, over the last couple of decades California has become a one-party Democratic state. Democrats hold a better than three-fourths hyper-majority in the State Assembly and their control is nearly as overwhelming in the State Senate. California has our nation's largest Congressional delegation, but of its 53 members only seven are Republican. Not... Read More
President Donald Trump is losing the suburbs. A June poll found that 65 percent of suburban voters had a favorable view of Black Lives Matter. A more recent poll reports that most Midwestern voters prefer Joe Biden over President Trump on race relations, protests, and “law and order.” Just 11 percent of suburban white voters... Read More

The Department of Justice has recently charged Yale University with racial discrimination in its undergraduate admissions and thus being in violation of Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. At least superficially, everything thus far follows a familiar, oft-repeated script that began in 1978 with the Bakke case. According to the DOJ probe, “Yale... Read More

YOU FLY into London on a British Airways plane on which you are shown an animated film about safety. It stars a cartoon Black man with his cartoon White wife and their cartoon mixed-race child.

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I greeted my July 11th issue of The Economist magazine with mixed feelings: For a fleeting moment I thought the "new ideology" that The Economist was talking about might be honest race realism, and that what's wrong with it from The Economist's viewpoint, which...

Before our Black Lives Matter moment, one had not thought of the NBC networks as shot through with "systemic racism." Yet, what other explanation is there for this week's draconian personnel decision of NBCUniversal chairman Cesar Conde. According to Conde, the white share of NBC's workforce, now 74% and divided evenly between men and women,... Read More
It is truly a melancholy sight to walk through the great cities and towns of the West today and observe the countless corpses of Black scientists, engineers, and philosophers left behind by the brutal White officers of the law.

“Affirmative action” means hiring people because they can’t do the job well. Near-synonyms are “diversity,” meaning groups that cannot do the job well, and “inclusiveness,” which means seeking people who you know cannot do the job well. These underpin American society, and have ruined education. For some time the sciences seemed less susceptible to the... Read More

Kimani Paul-Emile is a light-skinned black woman who teaches law at Fordham Law School.

The phrase “angry white males” has been around awhile, but Donald Trump’s election has pushed it to the forefront. Indeed, at least for some, it is central to Trump’s election. As Steven M.

My review was titled “Stereotypes Aren’t So Bad,” which is more or less the message... Read More

When the Justice Department announced its investigation into Harvard’s possible racial discrimination against Asians, almost on cue the usual suspects came forth with all-too familiar rhetoric on affirmation action. For liberals it was all about keeping our cherished diversity or helping the disadvantaged; conservatives meanwhile lectured on merit-based admissions or how preferences will stigmatize beneficiaries...

On Radio Derb recently I have been promoting a theme of “academic nationalism.” Higher education, I have argued, is a precious resource; and our own citizens should have first call on it.

The recent campus events have not been especially good for fans of academic integrity.

But Affirmative Action’s Real Damage Is To Whites, Asians, And America
Donald Trump has shifted the Overton Window, soaring to the top of the polls while championing issues the political class believed were off-limits. But even Trump seemed to side with the Left in deploring Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent remarks about Affirmative Action’s paradoxical negative impact on African-Americans. Of course, Scalia had an entirely reasonable point.... Read More

There is among us a poet, a middle-aged white guy named Michael Derrick Hudson. Mr. Hudson wrote a poem, title: “The Bees, the Flowers, Jesus, Ancient Tigers, Poseidon, Adam and Eve.” That’s the title.

Donald Trump’s entry into the crowded field of GOP presidential hopefuls has, supposedly, “shaken things up.” Not really. Everything he offers is either vague (e.g., negotiating a “good deal” with Cuba) or fantasy (e.g., forcing Mexico to pay for a border fence). What is attention-getting is his loose cannon flamboyant style and once that is... Read More
The Schumer-Rubio Amnesty/ Immigration Surge Bill emerged from the Senate Judiciary committee May 21st. The full Senate will consider a motion to vote on the bill (after having first, of course, pondered a motion to vote on the motion to vote) next Monday, June 10th. So far as I can ascertain, neither the bill nor... Read More

Last week I got into a discussion with my older son and a neighbor (who is an economics professor) concerning the social positions of John McCain. My son, who tried to convince us that McCain would be a less dangerous president than his Democratic opponent, went through the supposedly conservative stances McCain had taken while... Read More
Columnists have had a field day with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s Supreme Court decision [Grutter PDF]. In effect, O’Connor declared diversity to be a “compelling state interest” that trumps the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Sowell described the five-member majority as “vacancies without resignations.” Shelby Steele declared the ruling “a victory for... Read More
Forget the legalistic hieroglyphics in which Monday's Supreme Court decision upholding federally sanctioned anti-white admissions policies in American universities was wrapped. Look instead at whose interests the decision serves, and you will begin to grasp far more clearly why the Court belched forth this particular ruling. The obvious interests the decision serves are those of... Read More
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against the racial quota system used in the University of Michigan’s undergraduate admissions program (Gratz case) [PDF] and for the racial quota system used in the Law School’s admission program (Grutter case). [PDF] The difference is that “the procedures employed by the University of Michigan’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions... Read More
Sometime this month, perhaps before this column is published, the Supreme Court will rule on the University of Michigan’s racial quotas. Both in law school and undergraduate admissions, the university intentionally discriminates against white applicants in favor of “preferred minorities.” It is obvious that the university’s policy violates equality before the law and the Constitution’s...

Git Them Dogies Moving
The Supreme Court, our unelected and irrefutable legislature of nine, now ponders, or pretends to ponder, the legitimacy of racial discrimination in collegiate admissions. Oh good. One assumes of course that, with unrebuttable presumptuousness, they will merely dress their prejudices in constitutional-sounding awkward English. Still: What is one to make of racial preferences? First, some... Read More
pportunity to offset the effect on elections of the black vote by gaining the Latin or Hispanic vote for Republicans. From this standpoint, amnesty for Latin illegals and permission for Mexican trucking companies to deliver goods in the U.S. make political sense. However, the combination of amnesty and quotas spells the end of the American... Read More
University of California President Richard C. Atkinson is caught between a rock and a hard place. In order to remain politically correct—a requisite for keeping his job—he had to engage in hate speech and hate thought, offenses that mandate sensitivity training if not prosecution. California’s Proposition 209 forbids privileged university admissions on the basis of... Read More
“President Bush might succeed in building an anti-missile defense system and invigorating our economy with a tax cut. But does it really matter?…” The rot in American intellectual life has reached a putrid state.

The unprecedented racial transformation of California and its political consequences.
Californians of European ancestry---"whites"---became a minority near the end of the 1980s, and this unprecedented ethnic transformation is probably responsible for the rise of a series of ethnically-charged political issues such as immigration, affirmative action, and bilingual education, as seen in Propositions 187, 209, and 227. Since America as a whole is undergoing the same... Read More

Republican leaders, worried about their party's lack of success among ethnic minorities, are reaching for just the wrong remedy. The GOP, they say, should stress symbolic ethnic outreach, while downplaying its principled opposition to affirmative action, bilingual education, and multiculturalism. As a result, "diversity" is now a watchword in GOP candidate selection, choice of convention... Read More

With the victory of Washington state's Initiative 200, which ends affirmative action in government hiring, contracting and education, supporters of racial preferences have asked us to imagine an America in which members of some ethnic groups are virtually excluded not only from state university campuses but elite institutions in general. But no imagination is actually... Read More
During this past year of heated political battle on the affirmative action front, liberal defenders of continued ethnic preference programs---from President Clinton to Jesse Jackson and beyond---have repeatedly suggested compromises prohibiting "unqualified" individuals from receiving such benefits. Many observers---myself included---had long regarded such arguments as specious, being based on a mixture of cynicism and semantics:... Read More

It is astonishing that William McGowan's article on the roots of the bloody civil war in Sri Lanka ("Mythconceptions," June 7) nowhere mentions the words "affirmative action." Yet government "set-asides" to Sinhalese businessman, preferential promotions of Sinhalese in the government bureaucracy and the "race-norming" of test scores for university admissions between the "underrepresented" Sinhalese and...
