Editorial Reviews

Review

Jared Taylor is arguably the most brilliant of the leaders of what is sometimes called the 'Alternative Right,' the intellectual movement focused on emergent issues that are now systematically suppressed in America's purblind public debate. This book, the long awaited sequel to his seminal Paved With Good Intentions, will eventually be seen as a decisive step forward on the historic American nation's road to recovery from the paralyzing curse of Political Correctness."
-- Peter Brimelow, Editor of VDARE.com and author of Alien Nation: Common Sense About America's Immigration Disaster

"In this brilliant and wide-ranging survey of the relevant science and history, Jared Taylor shows that racial consciousness is intrinsic and that efforts to remake human nature are doomed to fail. He shows that in modern America, people of all races prefer the company of people of their own race; that racial diversity is more often a source of conflict than of strength; and that multiculturalism is changing the United States profoundly and to the detriment of most white people."
-- Dr. Raymond Wolters, Keith Professor of History, University of Delaware

"The work of an insightful, well-tempered, and above all, demandingly honest mind, White Identity is especially timely as the white population of America comes under intensifying demographic, political, cultural, and economic pressure from both within and without. Jared Taylor deserves our deep gratitude for declaring that whites must find a way to stand up for themselves in a world in which they are becoming a shrinking minority, even in their own once white-majority countries."
-- Prof. J. Philippe Rushton, Department of Psychology, University of Western Ontario

"Jared Taylor offers the reader an open, honest, and frank discussion of the reality of race and race relations in America today. He convincingly argues that unless all the facts, painful or politically inconvenient though they may be, are laid bare then all that follows will be based on false assumptions and doomed to failure."
-- Dr. Roger D. McGrath, Author/Historian/Television Commentator

"White Identity makes shocking and painful reading for any white person who fears for the future of the United States. It is about the relentless demise of whites, about the loss of will to survive, even about the death of whites globally. As Jared Taylor demonstrates in a relentless barrage of data and statistics, whites are being racially, culturally and physically dispossessed by non-whites. The acceptance of multiculturalism as something beneficial when it is barely concealed and often explicit anti-white racism renders whites uniquely vulnerable to the organized racial solidarity of non-whites. I retain hope. I retain this hope because of the author himself. Jared Taylor embodies all the virtues that made the American Republic: physical courage, wisdom, love of learning, an indomitable spirit and point-blank refusal to live by the Lie."
-- Dr. Frank Ellis, formerly of University of Nevada, Las Vegas and University of Leeds

"Jared Taylor documents the dire consequences of demographic change in the United States. He warns of the deterioration that will follow when and if whites become a minority, and sounds a much needed wake-up call for whites to regain their sense of racial consciousness."
-- Dr. Richard Lynn, Professor emeritus of psychology, University of Ulster

"If you don't like letting facts ruin your fantasies about race relations and diversity stay away from this book!"
--Dr. Anthony Hilton, Associate Professor of Psychology (retired), Concordia University, Montreal

Fear of an Erudite White

By Jim Goad

White Identity is Jared Taylor's first full-l --Houston Conservative Examiner

Few men in America are as reviled by the liberal establishment as Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), he is "a courtly presenter of ideas that most would consider crudely white supremacist." Keep in mind that the SPLC is an organization that cites Thomas Fleming, editor of this magazine, 11 times on its website for his association with such "hate groups" as the League of the South and the notorious Rockford Institute. If you are reading this madazine, you are already tainted. If you buy Jared Taylor's new book, you probably risk investigation by the ATF or some clandestine civil-rights-enforcement organization. Even reading this review could endanger your voting rights in the New World Order.

Now that you have been forewarned, allow me to summarize Taylor's argument: The architects of the civil-rights movement, who sought to build a color-blind, fully integrated society, have achieved only a pyrrhic victory. If minorities are well represented in our public institutions, our schools and colleges, our sports, and in the media, pervasive segregation persists in virtually every form of volutnary association. The Ideology of multiculturalsim, while it celebrates "diversity," is little more than a cover for a divisive racial poer politics intended to demonize whites and impose upon them a disabling burden of guilt and self-loathing. While blacks, Hispanic, Asians, and other minorities are encouraged to express racial solidarity, whites who attempt to do the same are branded as racists covertly seeking to restore white supremacy. Unchecked immigration across the Mexican-American border is permanently altering not only the complexion but the character of American life. By mid-century, America will be a mosaic of minority cultures, each competing fiercely for its share of power and federal largesse. Given this reality, whites can no longer afford the luxury of disdain for racial-identity politics. Whites today, Taylor writes, "have a choice: regain a sense of identity and the resolve to maintain their numbers, their traditions, and their way of life--or face oblivion."

Taylor is among the few who have taken an unflinching look at the reality of racial segregation in contemporary American life. While in the past it was almost universally assumed that segregation was a direct consequence of white discrimination and everything to do with ethnic preference and political advantage. Many blacks now see the integrationist ideal as merely a political tool that has served its purpose. As Leon Williams wrote in a letter to the editor published in 2004 by the Philadelphia Inquirer, there is nothing wrong with segregation. Most African Americans with good sense want the same relations that most whites want. We don't want them living in our neighborhoods. We don't want our children going to school with theirs. . . We don't need tea and cookies and fireside chats with white people.Taylor makes a strong case that such attitudes, while not universal among blacks, are widespread. Education has, of course, been among the most hotly contested terrains in the struggle for equal opportunity. Blacks were once fervent supporters of public-school integration, but today many leaders in the black community are profoundly disillusioned with the official integrationist position of NAACP and have become advocates of segregated education, especially charter schools designed to serve black children.

--Jack Trotter, Chronicles August 2011

White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century, by Jared Taylor

By Brett Stevens

People don't like to talk about it these days, but a big part of conservatism is racial identity what was once called "nationalism," when nation meant the ethnicity in which you were born.

Jared Taylor, a Yale graduate and independent businessman, has for the last two decades run an organization called American Renaissance that addresses the national question. Namely: how do we get beyond "diversity," which doesn't work for anyone, and re-discover our nationalist roots?

Naturally this upsets leftists. They claim to be tolerant of everything, but anything they don't like they accuse of being either elitist, racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-fat, Social Darwinism, Satan, etc. Leftists want you to think that you either think multiculturalism is Double Plus Good, or you're a fascist. No middle ground!

Taylor's newest book, White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century, will dispel these spurious claims because it does not just focus on white identity. Rather, it explores nationalist and identitarian politics and viewpoints in four racial groups: African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics and whites.

Through meticulously researched content, Taylor proves that (a) diversity is failing despite massive government efforts (b) each racial or ethnic group seeks its own self-rule and identity, and in fact most prefer segregation (c) that racial identity is healthy for members of all ethnic groups and (d) that "diversity" and "multiculturalism" not only are failing now, but portend a future of continued failure that will harm all ethnic groups.

Sleek but not slick prose flows through this readable and engaging text, using numerous examples from both scientific publications and the mainstream news. Arguments are cleanly constructed and stand alone. It is an impressive work that will bring food for thought to anyone brave enough to consider the analysis it offers.

If you want a respite from the dogmatic race-baiting of mainstream politics, and a more scientific and historical viewpoint that is both balanced and compassionate but also logical and focused on the long term, White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century by Jared Taylor is an enjoyable and informative read. --Houston Conservative Examiner

This book was very well researched and footnotes.

I will say that I couldn't put it down and it is, by far, one of the few books in my life that will have a long lasting impact on me.

Only if Whites regain a sense of identity will they be able to cope with this threat.

I am not the sort of person you'd think would be touting such a book. I am a child of Holocaust survivors, I have a Ph.D. in social science from Berkeley and subsequently taught in Berkeley's Graduate School, I am a moderate Democrat--strongly in favor of equal opportunity, against unfair treatment of people of any race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. And I host a show on an NPR affiliate in San Francisco. Indeed, I have been threatened to be kicked off the air for having had the author of this book on my show (twice.) But I will continue to have him on and strongly recommend this book that the politically correct will relentlessly excoriate UNFAIRLY.

This book uses a wealth of good evidence and the quality reasoning one would expect from the Yale graduate the author is. The quantity and quality of that evidence far exceeds that of most of the endless torrent of diversity-celebratory books published by prestigious publishers. Taylor uses that evidence to compellingly argue that:

-- diversity is NOT a strength
-- Eurocentric culture IS worth saving. Yet whites, educated by colleges and the media to feel they must step aside, are, without a shot being fired, surrendering the U.S. to a Black-and-Latino-centric culture. Such a culture, as Taylor's evidence so strongly indicates, is not one that gives one confidence about America's future. After all, I cannot find one Black- or Latino-centric nation among the world's 200 that inspires confidence that the world will be better when whites step aside.

I also want to mention that in Jared Taylor's book and in his other writings, it's clear that he is not some xenophobe who disparages all non-Whites.

Three virtues of the white race are self-restraint, focus, and deferred gratification. Jared Taylor has written a tremendously focused book. His objective is to present overwhelming amounts of anecdotal evidence to support his major contentions, which are:
* Integration has failed - nobody wants it, Black, White or other
* Diversity is not strength - it undermines most of society
* Blacks and Hispanics, and recently Asians as well, relentlessly promote their own racial agendas
* Even to talk about the interests of White people is anathema. We muzzle ourselves, and every other racial group shouts us down endlessly, and with impunity
* The situation is getting worse as the White majority inexorably shrinks

Taylor's style is to overwhelm the reader with citations from news sources, books, and other historical references. He easily convinces the reader that his evidence is not isolated and anecdotal, but rather, that it represents the actual situation in today's America. He has 50 pages of dense endnotes, by my count an average of 40 citations per page. A disbeliever could not refute the evidence, however they might disagree with the conclusion.

Taylor has previously argued from statistics. In "The Color of Crime" he presented FBI statistics on the identities of perpetrators and victims of crime. In this book he cites statistics gathered by others, but does not go into how those statistics were developed. The statistics all skew the same way. Blacks generally compiled the worst records for everything: school performance, poverty, crime, incarceration, teen pregnancies and so on, with Hispanics running a close second and occasionally exceeding the Blacks. American Indians, where statistics are available, fall in with the Blacks and Hispanics.

Even if you disagree with Taylor's message, it's pretty hard to argue about the content delivered here. The list of ethnic interest's groups growing hostility towards whites, treating whites like an 'enemy' is sobering and undeniable. The referenced quotes and extractions by many of our so called elite reveals a fairly blatant attempt to 'elect a new people' and marginalize ethnic whites. Taylor provides a healthy amount of footnotes and references to back his claims (something he notes, those who say diversity is wonderful never do).

He categorically lists what is now common place behavior - university professor can say white men are the root of all evil and suffer no consequences, a white guy uses the word 'oriental' and he's fired from a job he's worked at for 20 years. The hypocrisy is there for everyone to see, but no one wants to see it.

The sad thing is, there are so many whites who have been had the message pounded into their heads that we are evil, guilty, racist, etc, welcome it. But in truth, as Taylor points out, even white liberals say one thing but do another. Chris Matthews, for example, lectures us about racism, diversity, etc but lives in a 95% white suburb. Has he surrendered his talk show to a 'person of color'? Why not, if he is asking other whites to? That's the implicit question Taylor asks of many of our elite.

The message of the book can be summed up thus: The time for reciting meaningless platitudes like 'diversity is our strength" is coming to an end. We can no longer avoid reality. Its time to have a real frank discussion about something that is an increasing source of tension, violence, alienation and economic peril. This book is the beginning of a real discussion - not a scripted 'dialogue about race' .
