The Super Bowl always serves as a good barometer for American culture. It’s where ads seek to introduce upcoming blockbusters and “social progress.” Corporations made sure to start showing off gay couples in Super Bowl advertising in the mid-2010s. (more…)

Let’s Go, Brandon!
We’re gonna talk about normie stuff today.
I can already hear the groans emanating from the peanut gallery. “But Trav,” you say. “This is Counter-Currents, the caviar of White Nationalist websites. We don’t come here to read about normie stuff.” (more…)

Pierre the Frog: The Art of the Club
The Club King: My Rise, Reign, and Fall in New York Nightlife
Seattle: Little A, 2020
Driving with my father one day, we passed an imposing building, the Cornwall headquarters of the Orange Lodge, the Grand Order of British North America. “What’s that, papa?” I asked.

Millions of Dead Rappers
After the Atlanta-based one-hit hip-hop wunderkind who goes by the silly name of “Silento” was arrested and charged last week with murdering his cousin, his publicist referred to him as a “beautiful soul.”
To clarify, she wasn’t talking about the murdered cousin. She was talking about his accused killer, 23-year-old Ricky Lamar Hawk, a recording artist specialized in urban mating songs of the primitive call-and-response type. (more…)

Tom MacDonald: Wigger With a Heart of Gold
I don’t want to be like some passive artist for people to go, “Oh, what do you think of Tom Macdonald,” and they’re like, “You can take him or leave him.” I don’t want that. I want people to go either, “Yo, I love that guy,” or “Yo, I f*****g hate that guy.” I want an emotional response to this stuff.

Pop Music is a Satanic Mind-Virus! Part Two: The Rubish Question
Rapper Nick Cannon is the most unlikely person to be embroiled in an “anti-Semitism” controversy. Cannon gained popularity as a clean, family-friendly rapper. No one has ever mistaken him for hardcore or gangsta — he’s the nice rapper white families can listen to on their drive to church. His inoffensiveness and bourgeois image (more…)
As the country gets more diverse, the radio gets more homogeneous. I don’t mean this in the ethnic sense, of course; America’s rockstars are more colorful than ever! Instead, the songs that dominate the country’s charts are beginning to sound more and more alike. The average pop station tends to be an indistinct mass of the same noises (more…)

Imagine Music Without Black People
If there ever was a time that whites and blacks have aired their grievances, then the past two weeks have been it. Cities are burning. People are being killed. “Justice,” as defined by one person or another, is being demanded. In so many ways, the true nature of blacks in the United States is being put on display for all to see.
