On last Saturday’s episode of Counter-Currents Radio, Greg Johnson was joined by Counter-Currents authors Richard Houck and Thomas Steuben, as well as voice performer Gaddius Maximus, to hold an “argument clinic” on how to respond to the charge of “racism.” (more…)
Tag: race realism
It seems that the great race novel is all but forgotten.
When it was published in 1962, it spent half a year on the New York Times bestseller list. According to the blurbs on my tattered paperback, the critics loved it. It was a huge success. And today? All but forgotten. You will have a difficult time finding much information about this this singular work of literature on the internet. (more…)
What Do You Say When Someone Accuses You of Racism?
“Sir, you are hereby charged with the crime of racism. How do you plead?”
This accusation is actually a hidden false dichotomy, where the correct response is neither admitting nor denying the alleged crime, but instead rejecting the concept itself. The appropriate answer is to say that this term means nothing to you, and then move the conversation forward. This sounds deceptively simple, but there is a lot more to it. To understand the required frame of mind for delivering this, and to find out why this is likely to be more effective than previous alternatives, read on. (more…)
If you’ve ever wanted to deliver massive doses of red pills to your friends, David Duke’s My Awakening can be considered an entire bottle of them. The first edition, which is reviewed herein, has aged pretty well. Much has happened since then, of course — and little for the better. However, the basics are still relevant; what held true back then remains so now.
David Duke, in brief (more…)
Fascinating drama can always emerge when characters argue the truth against each other. Each has something that is undeniably correct in their position, but since neither wishes to back down, it’s up to the audience to figure out whose position is more correct in the long run. Kevin Beary has written three one-act plays which deal with the African question, and uses dialectic with expert precision. (more…)

158 words / 1:59:07
On this episode of Counter-Currents Radio, Jared Taylor and Jim Goad join Greg Johnson to discuss Jared’s epic debate about race realism with E. Michael Jones. Topics discussed include:
00:01:30 Who won the Great Debate?
00:04:00 E. Michael Jones’s arguments

Conservatives often lampoon the most egregious examples of Leftist social constructivism, yet they are not immune to indulging in blank-slatist fantasies when it suits them. The conservative civic nationalist project of subsuming disparate racial groups under one flag is a form of social engineering premised on blank slate ideology. (more…)
Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America
New York: Encounter Books, 2021
In his provocative book Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America, Charles Murray reopens a morass of unresolved controversies. At the heart of the dispute is the persistence of the black-white IQ gap and its consequences. (more…)
Fundraiser Update & this Weekend’s LivestreamCharles Murray & the Specter of White Nationalism
One of our readers has asked my opinion of Charles Murray’s new book Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America (New York: Encounter Books, 2021). I breezed through the ebook version of Facing Reality in just a few hours. I think that this book’s publication is an encouraging sign, and I hope that it will be widely read. America has long denied fundamental truths about race, but in the past year, the costs of these lies have become unbearable. In the words of Jef Costello, we need to “Speak the Truth or Kiss it All Goodbye.” (more…)
I don’t know where I first heard this joke:
“How do you keep 5 blacks from raping a white woman?” “Throw them a basketball.” (more…)
In November of 2009, I had been living in St. Louis for nine years, and my apartment complex was in a suburb bordering the city. It had gone through a rough patch before I signed my lease, cleaning out drug dealers and such. My years there were quiet and orderly. The rent was reasonable, the location a ten-minute drive from my downtown job as a security guard, and the apartment was a cozy one-bedroom. (more…)
I have a friend who’s a big sports fan, especially college football. He’s crazy for the local State university (which we will call “State”) and hates the slightly more prestigious state University (which we will call “the U”). It’s really not hate, of course. It’s more of an identity/anti-identity thing. Despite not having attended either university, he has always identified with State, which, in his local setting, also means identifying as not-U. (more…)
Imagine if I screamed my lungs bloody all day and all night, for years on end, about the Devil and how he’s the greatest threat to humanity. And then, let’s say a well-tempered Satanist tried to counter my caterwauling by saying, “Relax, fella — the Devil’s not that bad.”
If I replied, “The Devil doesn’t exist, you retard,” would I sound crazy? (more…)
A thought has been lurking in the back of my mind for some time.
In terms of fiction, and even outside it (with the notable exception of H. P. Lovecraft), were certain authors reflexively embraced as soul mates by white conservatives and racialists, in reality . . . anti-white — out of “principle,” opportunism, or just unconsciously? (more…)
Remembering Sam Francis: Samuel Francis’ Essential Writings on Race
Samuel Francis, ed. Jared Taylor
Essential Writings on Race
Oakton, Virginia: New Century Foundation, 2007
Samuel Francis’s Essential Writings on Race is what I would call a near-perfect equilateral triangle of political analysis. This is the highest possible praise for such a work. Allow me to explain. (more…)
Thomas Nelson Page
Bred in the Bone
New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1904
Bred in the Bone, a 1904 novella by Thomas Nelson Page, epitomizes race realism through the proxy of horses and horse racing. It also embodies the author’s characteristic nostalgia for the aristocratic white supremacy of the antebellum South. (more…)
Making Lions out of Lambs: A Response to Max Morton of American Greatness
Two kinds of conservatives constitute the mainstream Right: those who take conservatism seriously as a political creed, and those who are merely conservative liberals, or, as the Z-Man once called them, the rearguard of the Left. (more…)
My views on faith and spirituality have matured as I have gotten older. But when I was a teenager, heavy metal was my life and my religion. Unfortunately, this led to conflicts with my father as he returned to the Mormon Church. Despite rebelling against my father and the Mormon Church, I gained some important insights on human nature, self-reliance, and perseverance. These lessons can help the Dissident Right build communities across religious lines while still maintaining our personal views and beliefs. (more…)
Rush Limbaugh Remembered from the Right (January 12, 1951–February 17, 2021)
Rush Limbaugh passed away from lung cancer Wednesday at the age of 70. No one did more to shape modern conservatism than the talk radio giant. Republican politicians bowed before him and sought his favor. Rush had the power to shape the opinions of millions, and one rant from him could scuttle a presidential candidacy or legislation.

What should the white identitarian agenda be in the post-Trump era?
1. The Moral Case for White Identity Politics
Trump faced many enemies, (more…)
During the ongoing proceedings stemming from the fraudulent 2020 US presidential election, most of the actors involved have eschewed the topic of race. This is both good and bad. It’s good because if one side avers that race has been a decisive factor in this controversy, the other side would go ballistic and distract from the cases President Trump and his allies are bringing before the courts, the legislatures, and the American public. (more…)
Editor’s note: Jim Goad has joined Counter-Currents as a twice-weekly original contributor. This is his first article.
As someone who is both obsessed with race and filled with hatred, I am often accused of being filled with racial hatred. (more…)
I’m not going to claim that I have been totally 1488 from day one or that I came goose-stepping out of the womb. But I think I have always been instinctively and intuitively a race realist. Or at least, I have been since around the age of 8. The first black person I ever met was this kid named Scooter when I was in kindergarten. This would have been in the early 80s. (more…)

Fróði Midjord on the Jared Taylor vs. E. Michael Jones Debate
Greg Johnson interviews Fróði Midjord on the upcoming Scandza Forum in Zagreb, Croatia on May 2, 2020, where E. Michael Jones and Jared Taylor will debate on the question of the meaningfulness of the concept of race. (more…)
Contemplating all the thorny dilemmas facing race-realist or white identitarian parents brings me back to the story of the Soviet youth Pavel Morozov (or Pavlik, as he was known). I say “story” because the boy and the hagiographic myth which surrounded him for over fifty years were two very different things.
Pavel Morozov was a thirteen-year-old peasant boy who, in 1932, reported his father to the Soviet political police (more…)
Thou Shalt Not Lie (Except When It Supports the Approved Narrative):
A “High Cuck” Attack on Sam Francis
Judaism has its dual morality; Islam has its Taqqiya. Christianity, on the other hand, is distinguished by the belief that Christ is truth, and that knowing the truth is necessary for salvation. Christians, therefore, are theologically enjoined to seek the truth, and it is not difficult to see that this preoccupation with the pursuit of truth is one of the bases for the high-trust society that used to permeate what was formally called Christendom. (more…)
Lothrop Stoddard (1883-1950) was, in many respects, decidedly a man of his times. Like many intellectuals of his generation, he devoted the bulk of his writing to the nascent field of social science, hoping to harness the discipline not only to explain the past and present, but also to affect positive changes in the future. He can accurately be surmised as a disciple of Madison Grant, who was himself the intellectual progeny of Arthur de Gobineau by way of Houston Stewart Chamberlain. (more…)
Darryl Cooper: Something that you just said, definitely, it’s something I’ve observed. I think maybe ten or fifteen or twenty years ago, a lot of the time when you would think of a White Nationalist, you’re not necessarily thinking of a savory character. And I think there was probably some justice to that stereotype. (more…)
