Bloc Voting by Africans and Hispanics

According to a report by "The Economist" wrote, Doug Jones won the special election to fill the seat of Jefferson Sessions (who became the Attorney General) in the Senate.

According to another report by "The Economist", "Black voters, who usually comprise around a quarter of Alabama’s electorate, turned out in droves. Exit polls suggest they made up 29%, and that Mr Jones won 96% of their votes."

Africans and Hispanics consistently vote as a bloc typically to get preferential treatment (e.g., affirmative action) from political candidates. Also, Africans and Hispanics prefer candidates who have, respectively, African or Hispanic ancestry. This voting pattern has altered the character of the United States.

By contrast, Americans of European ancestry (and, to a lesser extent, Asian ancestry) do not vote as a bloc. They look at various sides of important issues before casting a vote for a political candidate; when 2 candidates have similar political positions, they split the European-American vote relatively evenly. Americans of European ancestry do not seek preferential treatment and do oppose using ancestry as a criteria for supporting a candidate.

The Democratic primaries in 2008 are instructive. During an interview conducted by CNN, a Democratic strategist noted that the political positions of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were nearly identical. Yet, roughly 80% of the votes from African-Americans went to Obama. The Africans clearly voted as a bloc — and on the basis of skin color.

By contrast, European-Americans roughly evenly split their votes between Clinton and Obama. The demographic breakdown reported by the "New York Times" for California is typical for the votes in the Democratic primaries. Bloc voting by Africans explains why Clinton lost the Democratic nomination for president in 2008.

The voting pattern of Africans and Hispanics is a stark warning to the French, the Germans, and other Europeans. African or Middle-Eastern immigrants (in Europe) and their descendants also vote as a bloc typically to get preferential treatment. After their percentage of the overall population reaches 20%, their behavior will permanently alter the character of the European nations.

note
In an interview conducted by National Public Radio (NPR), a Hispanic voter stated, "I think it's gonna basically deflate Donald Trump and I think this race – my crystal ball is a little foggy but I think it's gonna come down to the two Cubans, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and I think one of them will be our nominee this summer. And as a young, Latino conservative, I'm very, very excited about that." Like, Africans, this Hispanic voter unabashedly advocates using ancestry as a criteria for supporting a political candidate.

Gender Gap in Information Technology

In an essay published by "The Economist", the writer deliberately aggregates the data for all ethnic and racial groups and then alleges that cultural or other barriers prevent women from becoming workers in information technology (IT).

That abuse of statistics hides an important fact: the percentage of East-Asian-American women [1] in IT is above their percentage in the overall population. 1.42% of the American population are East-Asian women, according to data by the Pew Research Center and data by the U.S. Census Bureau. In a typical computer-science class at elite universities like MIT, the percentage of East-Asian-American women is much greater than 1.42%.

Barriers to entry into IT simply do not exist nowadays for women. American women of East-Asian ancestry easily enter IT.

Women of other racial and ethnic groups just dislike the hard work (at the university and, after graduation, in the workplace) that is necessary for IT. So, such women avoid IT.

Despite the above facts, the administrators at some universities create agendas to increase the percentage of women in IT. Harvey Mudd College is one such university; in its computer-science program, the percentage of women rose dramatically from 15% in 2006 to 55% in 2016. This startling increase may be due to weakening the program for technology-averse non-East-Asian women. Once a political agenda to increase women exists, professors become inclined to grade the work of their female students more leniently than the professors grade the work of their male students.

Note that East-Asian-American women succeeded before the existence of any major political agenda to increase the percentage of women. Such women succeeded due to the strong emphasis on education and hard work in East-Asian families in the United States.

Women of other ethnic and racial groups value education and hard work less than East-Asian women. That is the real explanation for the low percentage of women in IT.

1. East Asia comprises Japan, Korea, China, and Vietnam.

Striking Hard Against Affirmative Action

According to a report by the "New York Times", a report by Reuters, and a report by "The Washington Post", Attorney General Jefferson Sessions will establish a project, within the Department of Justice (DOJ), to investigate universities that use affirmative action (AA). The intent of this project is to sue universities that use AA to discriminate against Americans of Asian or European ancestry.

Under intense political pressure from Africans and Hispanics, universities have long used AA to reduce the number of Asian admittees in order to give their admission slots to African and Hispanic applicants. According to a report by CNN, "An Asian-American student has to score [...] 270 points higher than a Hispanic student and 450 points higher than a black student on the SAT to be on equal footing."

The use of AA at the 8 Ivy League colleges prevented Austin Jia, an Asian, from being admitted to Harvard University, Princeton University, Columbia University, and the University of Pennsylvania, according to a report by the "New York Times". Jia had a high grade point average (GPA), nearly perfect SAT scores, and participation in numerous extracurricular activities: debate team, tennis captain, and state orchestra.

By stark contrast, the use of AA at the Ivy League colleges enabled Kwasi Erin, an African, to receive an admission slot to Harvard University, Yale University, Brown University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth University, Princeton University, and Cornell University, according to a report by CNN. Knowing the unfair preferential treatment that he received via AA, Erin had the audacity to publicly brag about his admission to all 8 Ivy League colleges.

According to a report by the "South China Morning Post", Americans of Asian ancestry vehemently oppose the very AA that gave Erin an unfair advantage in admissions to the elite universities. According to a report by Fox News, the Asian American Legal Foundation supports the effort by the DOJ to sue universities that discriminate against Asians and Europeans.

Will Sessions succeed at legally forcing Stanford University and other elite universities to stop discriminating against Americans of Asian or European ancestry?

Open Borders

According to a report published by "The Economist", "Both Mrs May and Mr Corbyn would each in their own way step back from [...] open borders [...]."

"Open borders" is tantamount to national suicide. Some ethnic or racial groups lack either the intellect or the will to assimilate into Western society. Via "open borders", members of such groups enter the West. Their presence ruins the quality of life.

Here are 2 examples.

On April 22, a group of approximately 50 African and Hispanic youths seized a light-rail train in Oakland (United States), assaulted the passengers, and stole their money and other possessions, according to an essay published by the "Santa Monica Observer".

On June 3, a group of 2 Moroccans and 1 Pakistani drove their van into a group of pedestrians in London (Great Britain). The thugs left the van and used knives to stab customers in nearby bars and restaurants. An eyewitness stated, "a woman probably in her early 20s staggered into the pub and she was bleeding heavily from the neck and from her mouth. It appeared to myself and my friends that her throat had been cut.", according to a report published by "The Washington Post". Detailed information about the background of the 3 thugs is available in a report published by "The Telegraph".

We should immediately close the borders of all Western countries and restrict entry to only immigrants who will assimilate into Western society.

Criminality of Immigrants

According to a report by "The Hill", "immigrants commit crimes and are incarcerated at a much lower rate than U.S. citizens, according to two separate studies released this week."

That statement is misleading due to an abuse of statistics. Any sociological assertion must present results by ethnicity and race because differences in culture and genetics produce starkly different behaviors.

The report mentions 2 studies. The first study was done by The Sentencing Project. This study should be ignored because it avoids presenting the results by ethnicity and race.

The second study was done by the Cato Institute. This study presents results by ethnicity and race and is worthy of our consideration.

The Cato Institute shows that immigrants are incarcerated at a lower rate than natives for each ethnicity or race. This study also shows that Africans and Hispanics of the 2nd and later generations are incarcerated at a much higher rate than (1) Africans and Hispanics of the 1st generation (i.e., the immigrant generation) and (2) Asians and Europeans of all generations.

Africans and Hispanics who are immigrants fear being deported back to the inferior countries created by their native cultures. So, these people behave properly upon entry into the United States. The 2nd generation of Africans and Hispanics are safe from deportation, so they behave improperly and become criminals.

Both Africans and Hispanics are less likely to assimilate than Europeans and Asians. Uncontrolled immigration from Central and South America threatens the United States.

note
According to a report by "The Economist", "[In Chicago,] Mexicans are by far the biggest group, accounting for about 80% of the city’s 803,000 Hispanics. Puerto Ricans are the second-biggest group, followed by a medley of Central Americans. ... Gangs, which have tens of thousands of members, are omnipresent in Latino neighbourhoods."

Marine Le Pen and Multicultural Pluralism

According to a report by "The Economist", "local opponents accuse [the mayor of Cogolin] of financing his development plans in 'opaque' ways and an 'ideological' hostility to cultural diversity, such as North African songs or dances in schools."

Whenever a reporter writes words like "African", "Hispanic", or "Middle Easterner", he usually also writes a defense of or praise for "cultural diversity" or "multicultural pluralism". This phenomenon appears on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

We must be honest with ourselves. Western culture and Western civilization are superior to all other cultures and civilizations. The proof of this fact appears in Japan. Its people embraced Westernization and transformed their island into one of the richest nations in the world.

By contrast, the peoples in African nations, Middle-Eastern nations, and Hispanic nations (in Central and South America) reject Westernization, and those nations are economically poor, have high rates of violent crime, or have authoritarian societies. That is the ugly truth of non-Western civilizations. [1]

Marine Le Pen, like Donald Trump, repeatedly asserts that Western values are superior to African, Middle-Eastern, or Hispanic values. She is asserting the truth.

She deserves the utmost praise for speaking truth to elitist power.

note
Africans and Hispanics in the United States reject assimilation and demand special privileges that are denied to Americans of Asian or European ancestry. According to a report by the "Los Angeles Times", Africans (and, to a lesser degree, Hispanics) are over-represented among students who use willful defiance to disrupt the meeting of a class. Under political pressure from African and Hispanic organizations, the school boards in the Los Angeles Unified School District and other districts have terminated the use of suspension (or any other punishment) for forcing the disrupters to behave properly.

According to a report by the "New York Times", Africans and Hispanics are over-represented among students who fail a literacy test for employment as a teacher in elementary and secondary schools. Under pressure from African and Hispanic organizations, the Board of Regents of New York terminated the use of the literacy test.

Rate of Crime Committed by Immigrants

According to a recent report by "The Economist", "... first-generation migrants commit crimes at lower rates than natives."

Any statement about sociological phenomenon must be qualified by ethnicity and race, for differences in culture and genetics produce stark differences in behavior among ethnic and racial groups. If the author of a demographic statement omits such qualifying information, then he is deliberately trying to hide ugly facts about a particular ethnicity or race.

Contrast the demographic statement by "The Economist" with the statements by David Frum, the senior editor at "The Atlantic". In an essay, he wrote, "Refugees from the communist crackdown in Hungary in 1956 have flourished in America. More than a quarter century after they began to arrive in America, Somali refugees have not. First-generation Japanese immigrants committed crimes at rates much lower than that of other Americans; Mexican immigrants have historically offended at elevated rates."

His comments about a sociological phenomenon are clear and cogent because he qualifies them by ethnicity and race. Specifically, both Africans and Hispanics are less likely to assimilate than Europeans and Asians. Uncontrolled immigration from Central and South America threatens the United States.

This observation is buttressed by a sociological study that estimates the rate of arrest for murder and that uses data provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Pew Research Center for 2013. This study examines the rate (of arrest) by ethnicity and race. This rate is approximately proportional to the number of people murdered (per year) by each ethnicity and race and can be viewed as a proxy for the latter rate.

The arrest rate for Asians is about half of the rate for non-Hispanic Europeans.

By contrast, the arrest rate for Hispanics is about 3 times the rate for non-Hispanic Europeans. The arrest rate for Africans is about 9 times the rate for non-Hispanic Europeans.

The above facts lead to an inevitable conclusion: Donald Trump is right -- again. We must promptly deport illegal aliens (of whom most are Hispanic) and restrict legal immigration. We must favor immigrants who "support this country and love its people and its values."

Politicization of Science

According to a report by "The Economist", many scientists allege that President Donald Trump has politicized science. On February 19, hundreds of scientists assembled at Copley Square in Boston and vociferously accused him of hindering their work.

If these scientists look in a mirror, then they will see a hypocrite. Many scientists also politicize science.

Consider the case of Dr. James D. Watson, who won the Nobel Prize in medicine. In 2007, he asserted that Africans are less intelligent than Europeans due to genetic differences. Afterwards, he was forced to resign from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, according to report 1 and report 2 by the "New York Times".

If scientists were not political, then they would have immediately conducted a study of the assertion that Watson made. The results of the study would speak for themselves.

Instead of taking a rational approach toward addressing a scientific topic (i.e., differences in intelligence due to differences in genetics), many scientists -- including the management of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory -- immediately and emotionally condemned Watson. They humiliated a man whose medical achievements would significantly advance the treatment of diseases.

The hard truth which many scientists try to avoid or hide (via political tactics like feigned anger) is that differences in culture and genetics produce differences in behavior among ethnic and racial groups. According to one report by "The Economist", differences in genetics produce differences in intelligence. According to another report by the same journal, differences in culture produce differences in work ethic.

Of course, differences in culture and genetics have produced stark differences in national development. For example, Japan is a prosperous nation with a low rate of violent crime. By contrast, Guatemala (which is a typical Hispanic nation) is economically poor and has a high rate of violent crime.

Impact of the Travel Ban on the United States

Recently, President Donald Trump signed several executive orders that restrict travel from some anti-Western nations like Iran. The writer of an essay published by "The Economist" alleges that this travel ban has reduced travel to the United States from countries that were not targeted by the ban. The writer does qualify his allegations and states, "It is hard to separate the ban completely from other factors currently affecting travel to America. The dollar has strengthened against currencies such as the euro and the yuan since the election, making it more expensive to visit the United States."

How can we be sure that the travel ban will only minimally and temporarily reduce travel to the United States?

First, the strengthening of the dollar is a vote of confidence in the executive orders signed by Trump. Foreigners buy dollars (thus boosting its value) because they believe that his political policies will improve the quality of life in our nation. An improved quality of life surely attracts more travel to the United States.

Second, from 1945 to the present day, the government of Japan has aggressively enforced strict immigration laws, including prompt deportation of illegal aliens. The Japanese laws are stricter than even the immigration policies proposed or implemented (via executive orders) by Trump.

Yet, millions of tourists still flock to Japan. They particularly enjoy the relatively crime-free environment there. If you lose your wallet, then some anonymous Japanese citizen will find it and give it to the police. A policeman will locate you and return the wallet to you. It will contain all the money that was originally in it.

If Trump succeeds at using his immigration policies to increase the percentage of pro-Western citizens to nearly 100% of the American population, then the United States will become the pleasant sort of place that exists in Japan and Germany (before it was inundated by anti-Western immigrants). The number of tourists to the United States will actually increase.

Trump's executive orders (which reduce the number of anti-Western immigrants) are the right start.
