“The idea of elections makes no sense to the average African ruler. The whole purpose of government is to make him rich and powerful. An election, of all things, is the stupidest reason to step down. For the huge majority of Africans, political activity is therefore palace politics; the closer you are to the Big Man, the better your chances for patronage, kickbacks, payoffs, and outright theft.” – Jared Taylor, “Africa Since Independence,” American Renaissance, February 2006; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 124.

“In many respects…[Kwame] Nkrumah [Prime Minister of Ghana from 1951 to 1966] set the pattern for the [African] continent: dictatorship, corruption, mismanagement, quirks bordering on madness, and involuntary departure from office. In particular, his example of one-man rule caught on almost everywhere [in Africa].” – Jared Taylor, “Africa Since Independence,” American Renaissance, February 2006; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), pp. 115-116.

“Do we keep our children in public school despite falling standards? If we move to the suburbs will we have to sell our house at a loss? If we stay, will we both have to work so we can afford private school? There have probably never been any other American court decisions with such a direct and unpleasant impact on the lives of so many people [than Brown v. Board of Education 1954 and Green v. New Kent County 1968]. It is doctrinaire to the point of callousness to disregard the sufferings of “racists” who rejected a social experiment in which they wanted no part, and did what they thought best for their children.

Brown and its sequels are some of the strongest proof of why judicial activism is so dangerous. The Constitution is silent on the question of segregated schools. Some states had them and others did not; it was a matter rightly left up to the deliberations of the people’s elected representatives. The Supreme Court forced a mute Constitution to speak, and in so doing made it speak gibberish.” – Jared Taylor, “Brown v. Board: The Real Story,” American Renaissance, July 2004; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 107.

“The initial impact of the Brown decision was, with a few exceptions, anti-climactic. The implementation order of 1955 applied only to schools that practiced legal segregation, and required only that they stop assigning students by race… There was dramatic resistance in 1957 to the arrival of even small numbers of blacks at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, but desegregation – the end of forcible separation of students by race – passed easily enough. It was the shift from desegregation to integration – the obligatory mixing of students to achieve “racial balance” – that convulsed the country.” (Emphasis not added) – Jared Taylor, “Brown v. Board: The Real Story,” American Renaissance, July 2004; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 98.

“[White] People who know nothing about non-whites still think they are experts on race relations. The less whites actually know, the more confidently they lecture other whites who have spent years among blacks or Asians. From the 1940s to the 1990s, Scandinavians who had never clapped eyes on a black told Americans and South Africans how to behave. Northerners berated Southerners [in the U.S.] with equal authority. Even today, the politicians and editorialists who bray the loudest about Southern or redneck “racism” live in gilded white ghettos and send their children to private schools. There is probably no other subject for which mouthing clichés passes for learning, and moral fervor trumps a lifetime of experience.” – Jared Taylor, “The Racial Ideology of Empire,” American Renaissance, February 2005; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 89.

“Given the aftermath of empire, it should perhaps not be surprising to learn that its history is one of constant tension between frank assertions of white supremacy and the insistence that all men are brothers and equals. It is probably a reflection on the nature of whites that the latter view has always assumed a sheen of high morality. For at least two centuries, race has been a subject on which the more one ignores both the scientific evidence and the testimony of experts, the more enlightened one can appear. No doubt this is why even with empires at their most powerful, men who knew better shrank from blunt assertions of racial interests.” – Jared Taylor, “The Racial Ideology of Empire,” American Renaissance, February 2005; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 86.

“It is…the backwash of empire in the form of non-white immigration that is the most unhappy legacy for the European powers. If, indeed, the loss of confidence that led to decolonization lead inevitably to massive non-white immigration – and it seems to have done so without exception – empire was a catastrophic mistake for the imperial powers.” – Jared Taylor, “The Racial Ideology of Empire,” American Renaissance, February 2005; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 86.

“Empire required a firm sense of the white man’s fitness to rule, but it was not usually necessary to express this in explicitly supremacist terms.” – Jared Taylor, “The Racial Ideology of Empire,” American Renaissance, February 2005; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 79.

“…whites have long had a tendency to be squeamish and hypocritical about race. Even at the height of empire, colonial authorities were full of false piety, mouthing high-sounding nonsense they did not believe. Except for people on the front lines of empire, there has been a surprising unwillingness of Europeans to assert racial interests, even when they understood and believed in them. Timidity about race is nothing new.” – Jared Taylor, “The Racial Ideology of Empire,” American Renaissance, February 2005; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 74.

“…if whites do not regain their [racial] solidarity they will be replaced by groups that never lost it. The indiscriminate altruism typical of whites is not universal. In general, it is only whites who set up racial preferences for minorities, who adopt children of other races, or face dispossession through immigration. When whites took possession of North America, Australia, and New Zealand, they set aside territory for the exclusive use of the natives they displaced, giving them at least a minimal base for ethnic preservation. Non-whites who displace whites will not establish white homelands.” – Jared Taylor, “What We Owe Our People,” American Renaissance, January 2005; If We Do Nothing: Essays and reviews from 25 years of white advocacy (New Century Books, 2017), p. 72.
