There has been much talk here about Chanda Chisala’s article “The IQ gap is no longer a black and white issue.” Much of the article focuses on the Igbo (known also as Ibo), a people who live in the Niger Delta and “are well known to be high academic achievers within Nigeria.” In the United Kingdom, their children do as well in school as Chinese and Indian students
Great overview of the 2015 Student Protests in the US
I think the rise of white identity politics is inevitable. Europeans can’t keep broadcasting universalism if everyone is defining themselves as victims of Europeans and demanding special considerations / reparations.
The way to have a mutli-cultural society is to:
1. deny people access to political power.
2. recognize social norms as property and defend them as such.
3. put as much interaction as possible into the market place of voluntary choices.
But some students worried they would be “ostracized” if they did not participate or dress in sync, one college parent said.
“There’s been a campaign of intimidation, where students are going dorm to dorm, floor to floor and asking students to go back to their dorms and put on black if they’re not wearing black,” the parent said.
“My daughter told me people are uneasy and fearful,” she added. “Her personal politics are left-wing and she shares their sympathies, but she doesn’t like to feel that she can’t wear blue if she wants to wear blue.”

“How can students too spoiled to tolerate debate weigh opposing political arguments? They can’t.”
Wow! From USA Today! The counter-revolution is here!

“Democracy” is just a temporary universal ideal. Once they can have more power, they’ll find other ideals.
Arrest data lets us measure this possibility. For the entire country, 28.9 percent of arrestees were African-American. This number is not very different from the 31.8 percent of police-shooting victims who were African-Americans. If police discrimination were a big factor in the actual killings, we would have expected a larger gap between the arrest rate and the police-killing rate.
Why we need all mens schools (to protect us from gossip).
I love the symmetry of this charade. A fake publishing industry has sprung up to service academia’s fake intellectuals.
Yuri Maltsev: “I remember how enthusiastic was NPR, PBS and many in academia when Chavez took power in Venezuela.”
Outside the STEM disciplines, universities are little more than indoctrination centers for economic Marxism, and cultural Marxism. Burn them down. They’ve caused enough death and destruction in the world.
So farewell, Yanis Varoufakis. You used to be Greece’s finance minister. Then you resigned, or were you sacked? You took control of the Greek economy six months ago when it was growing. Yes, honestly! Growth last year ran at 0.8 per cent, with forecasts of 3 per cent this year. The government had a primary budget surplus. Unemployment was falling. Until you came along.
Varoufakis was a product of British universities. He read economics at Essex and mathematical statistics at Birmingham, returning to Essex to do a PhD in economics. With the benefit of his British university education he returned to Greece and, during his short time in office, obliterated the nascent recovery. The economy is now expected to contract by 4 per cent this year — an amazing transformation. Greece’s debt burden has increased by tens of billions and many people have emigrated.
But Varoufakis is not alone. Plenty of other visitors to our universities have been influenced by the teaching here and returned to their countries to wreak havoc.
