The Spectator Stumbles, Staggers, and Falls on Race: Race Books that Will Waste Your Time, vs. Some that Will Reward It

By Nicholas Stix

I generally like the British Spectator, but it commissioned a Thomas Chatterton Williams, who passes for black (octoroon?), to write an essay on race books one ought to read, as part of some “national conversation on race.”

“Forget White Fragility: here are 10 books America should be reading about race.”

They all look like a waste of time to me.

I can think of some “books” really worth reading:

Jared Taylor, Paved with Good Intentions.

Out of print, and now only available used or via Kindle, at places like Amazon—that is, until they “disappear” it.

Jared Taylor, White Identity.

Available at American Renaissance.

Steve Sailer: America’s Half Blood Prince: Barack Obama’s “Story of Race and Inheritance.”

Michael Levin: Why Race Matters.

Tough sledding. Mike Levin was my grad school logic professor, and wrote the greatest (very readable) critique of feminism, Feminism and Freedom, but for reasons known only to him, wrote this work as if his audience were a bunch of philosophy professors, who would hate it, no matter how he wrote it.

Carleton Putnam: Race and Reason: A Yankee View.
