White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century

4.16  ·  Rating details ·  117 Ratings  ·  13 Reviews
Ten years in the making, this book is the sequel to Jared Taylor's seminal Paved With Good Intentions. In White Identity, Taylor systematically marshals the data to show that:

People of all races pay lip service to the ideal of integration but generally prefer to remain apart.

Study after scientific study suggests that racial identity is an inherent part of human nature.

Cogent analysis of racial identity as important to African-American, Hispanic, Asian and Caucasian people. Taylor shows us how racial identity is inherent to each group and brings positive benefits. he then analyzes the disconnect among whites regarding their own racial identity, and points out how diversity obliterates identity and changes society by changing the people who make it what it is. Non-racist, but realistic, and a triumph of research and witty writing.

Exposes "diversity is our greatest strength" as perhaps the biggest lie ever sold to the American people. Borders on the scholarly and is heavily sourced.

Impossible to refute, hopefully it will be read by many Americans! People who rate it poorly probably did not read it or else, I'd like to know what they disagree with!

Jared Taylor's writing is entry level racialism, based on other people's research. To his credit, he adequately explains disparate inherited IQ levels and the different demographic groups' demonstrated historical ability to create and maintain civilization. However, his childhood spent as a child of missionaries in the Orient turned him into a lifelong Mongolophile, and his earnest if misplaced fear of losing the financial backing of certain other people have kept him Philosemitic.

If one is truly American, there should be some concern for America's future present within the mind and soul. Human beings are fauna and must fight tooth and nail for existence. No matter how much modernity wishes to pout and stamp its feet, race is real. It is not a construct, but rather a very important thing which has always been relevant and is a legitimate, perhaps unavoidable, part of the decision-making process. Even if it is has been some figment of our collective imagination, it is a fa ...more

The book challenges the politically correct notion that different races want to be integrated and that our society is better off if we mix with other races. Great book; lots of facts. Helped me realize that it is okay for a white person like me to talk about race issues that affect me and that it is okay for me to love my race.

Въпросите около отношенията между различните раси са голяма тема в момента по целия свят, но особено в САЩ, дето тия раси първо живеят в безпрецедентно многообразие и второ имат доста интересна и донякъде срамна история на взаимоотношенията помежду си.

С настоящата си книга, Джаред Тейлър се опитва да хвърли светлина върху някои теми, свързани с расовите отношения, но най-вече да покаже различните перспективи, през които всяка от основните раси в САЩ (негри, латиноамериканци, азиатци и бели) вижд

I read this book for the reading category "Book by an Author you Disagree With Politically."
I have been hesitant to post this book, being concerned with the impression it might make if someone saw me reading it. I chose it out of curiosity and concern.
The basic premises of the book are 1) that diversity isn't a strength, 2) that white people are the only group of Americans who believe that diversity is a strength, and 3) that white people are the only group of Americans who don't focus on themse

Tl;dr actually about the evils of the cult of diversity, the suicide of multiculturalism, and minority identitarianism.

Six pages in the back out of 500 discuss what it might look like if European-Americans had a similar sense of ethnic loyalty compared to other groups, instead of guilt and self-dispossesion.

Still ****1/2

Изначально (до прочтения) относился к книге скептически. Решил прочитать, чтобы лучше понимать "врага".
Оказалось, что книга хороша, хоть и область исследований достаточно узкая (США). Но автор рассуждает в большей степени о том, что есть такого у небелых рас, чего нет у белой, и почему стоит это перенять. Собственно, авторских высказываний о том, что какая-то раса хуже или лучше, здесь не встретишь (только примеры из истории), скорее рассуждения о том, что от расы как от отличительной особенност

This is a bunch of facts about the actuality of racial and ethnic tensions in America, and no more. They are presented frankly, and the book is valuable for that reason, but a more impressive work is Wilmot Robertson's The Dispossessed Majority, which has a broader perspective and is better written.
