Today I begin a new series of short essays debunking race denialism. This series is distinguished by its eclectic approach: for each essay, I will analyze one major or recurring error, rather than picking apart every fabrication and fallacy in one text (as I did in this post, this post, and this post). This approach […]

Welcome back to “Hatred,” Unamusement Park’s five-part documentary on the War on Hate. In part one, we observed how anti-racists react when John Derbyshire pokes them with a stick, by which I mean: tells them about intelligence research that insufficiently flatters black people. In part two, with decidedly bigger fish to fry, we tiptoed up […]

“When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.” Jonathan Swift abagond (“500 words a day on whatever I can rip off”), eager to give his own take on the race realism/race denialism controversy, has “summarized” some of Zek’s ignorant, […]

Ignorance and misinformation about race and crime run deep in our society. People who have never read an article on the subject will declare, with a conviction normally reserved for religious fundamentalists, that blacks are not more criminal than whites; that this is an illusion created by racially biased news media; and that any evidence […]

This is a big one. Highlights: in section 2, read why race is genetic. In section 13, read why intelligence tests are accurate and not culturally biased. In section 16, read why race denialism is politics, not science, in the words of a professional forensic anthropologist. Tonight we take a break from the futility of […]

Gender feminism harms all women

The SlutWalk debate rages on, and everywhere I look, I see the same fundamental fallacy — or, to be blunt, the same fundamental stupidity — from gender feminists. For example, from the Trent Arthur, a front-runner in the Most Biased Reporting competition: “No means no, unless you’re a ‘slut,’” by Hazel Wheeler. That was the […]

Victim-blaming update

Apparently this SlutWalk phenomenon is much bigger than I initially thought — and much crazier, and much more harmful to women. You can read more in the Excalibur, in the Trent Arthur, at Sexlife Canada, and at thestar.com. What will you find? Thousands of sluts (their word, not mine) united in condemning a man for […]

Hatred II: victim blaming

“Hatred” is Unamusement Park’s ongoing five-part documentary on the War on Hate, a war which — strangely enough — is being waged by the most hateful and malicious elements of our society. Last time we considered the strange case of John Derbyshire, whose thoughtful remarks on race differences in intelligence were interpreted as a “Racism […]

Comments have been re-enabled on my recent debunking of fanatical faith-based race denialist Zek J Evets’ crazy ideas about race. Zek is unable to respond except with more hateful, bigoted screeching about hate and bigotry, either at his blog or at abagond’s. It’s funny how many people accuse me of being hateful or bigoted or […]

I have noticed a tendency among race denialists to oversimplify — drastically oversimplify — outrageously oversimplify the science of human biodiversity (HBD). This is an effective strategy: their target audience is ignorant of the research, intellectually and emotionally ill-equipped to handle it, and has already decided who’s right and who’s racist. They just need someone […]
