The Diversity Tax


It is in our day an undisputed fact, almost a religious dogma, that 'diversity is our strength.' This credo is endlessly repeated by our leaders, including the heads of state of the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., and France.


Former University of Michigan President Lee Bollinger:


Diversity is not merely a desirable addition to a well-run education. It is as essential as the study of the Middle Ages, of international politics and of Shakespeare. For our students to better understand the diverse country and world they inhabit, they must be immersed in a campus culture that allows them to study with, argue with and become friends with students who may be different from them.

By 'diversity,' of course, Mr Bollinger does not mean diversity of opinion (verboten on many campuses), but diversity of melanin content.  

Nearly every political, religious, academic, and cultural leader in every Western country today agrees that (racial) Diversity is, indeed, Our Strength. Or as the French say, 'La diversité est une richesse.'

Are they right?

We at TWCS propose, on the contrary, that in Western countries diversity has proven to be much more like a tax. A tax that falls, like medieval manorial dues, disproportionately on the working classes.



A tax is not ipso facto a bad thing. Most of us happily pay income or sales tax knowing it helps fund our roadways, police, garbage pick-up, etc.

But how much is the Diversity Tax costing us per year?  And what, exactly, are we getting in return? Is it worth it?

In order to get a closer look, we invite you to join us on a trip through the modern Multicultural West.  It may be wise to bring your checkbook.





To grossly generalizewe will split our subjects into two groups: the 'higher-functioning' and the 'lower-functioning' Diverse.  The reason is that the two groups tend to tax us in different ways.  There is of course overlap between the two, but for convenience we'll use a broad brush for now. 



I. LOWER-FUNCTIONING MINORITIES

By their fruits ye shall know them: Our first category includes groups who, on average, are lower-functioning than the majority population. How much do they cost us?

1) Give-Aways: Leveling Up

Sun People and Ice People trod different evolutionary paths for millennia. As a result, they have (on average) vastly different levels of future orientationimpulse controlorganizational abilityabstract thinking, and out-group empathy.

While these differences are no surprise to us, they are to our leaders, who seem to think that taxpayer money—trillions if necessary—must be spent to magically 'level up' these groups via give-aways. To wit:




a) Affirmative Action

Where diversity is present, all groups must be equally represented in all jobs. This, despite the fact that no two ethnic groups perform at exactly the same level. Hence quotasBut at what cost?

Brimelow and Spencer assert that the greatest cost of affirmative action results from not being able to choose the best economic alternatives. They estimate this cost alone at $236 billion for 1991. Administrative costs associated with affirmative action add another $100 billion or so per year. Most other estimates also put the annual bill for affirmative action in the two to four hundred-billion dollar ballpark.  

In this essay La Griffe du Lion models the effect of affirmative action on the income of whites, blacks and Hispanics. It is shown that on average a black worker between the ages of 25 and 64 earns an extra $9,400 a year because of affirmative action. Hispanics also benefit to the tune of almost $4,000 a year. However, being a zero-sum game, white workers pay an average of about $1,900 annually to foot the bill. 
As we have reported in detail, the EEOC, Washington's private-sector quota enforcement arm, spends $385 million of your tax dollars each year to make sure enough non-Euros are hired by private companies.

The 2010 EEOC Report tells us they used our tax dollars to investigate 
  • 35,890 charges of racial discrimination;
  • 19,283 charges of race, national origin, or religious harassment;
  • while securing $404 million in monetary benefits for individuals - 'the highest level of relief obtained through administrative enforcement in the Commission's history.'

Phew.

But the 'affirmative action tax' is not always so easy to quantify--as we have seen, Thomas Sowell has put together a long list of unpleasant side effects in his Affirmative Action Around the World.  Including, but not limited to:
  • It pushes people massively to 're-designate' in order to take advantage of the racial spoils.

Rainbow nation: Cherokee Indian senator Elizabeth Warren, Hispanic DOJ Civil Rights spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa, black NAACP president Benjamin Jealous

  • It jumps from original, deserving groups (e.g. descendents of slaves in the U.S.) to ever more unrelated groups (Arab, Indian, Latino immigrants) like a virus.

  • The real beneficiaries are often not the most disadvantaged, but the 'cream' of the less able group who were already doing very well (e.g. wealthy children of the mulatto elite getting college spots over both ghetto Blacks and poor Whites).


  • It creates 'Ali Baba' companies (e.g. a Chinese company obliged to use Malay 'front men' in order to get govt. contracts in Malaysia).
  • It leads to 'education mis-match,' wherein students who would have done fine at mid-level schools end up overwhelmed by (and dropping out of) top-tier schools.
  • It disincentivizes hard work in the less able group (they know jobs, college spots, etc. will be handed to them based on their race).
  • It disincentivizes hard work in the more able group (they know that merit is not rewarded).
  • It pushes the most able to emigrate, creating brain drain and economic slowdown.


b) Welfare

In addition to quotas, and in the same spirit, the lower-functioning Diverse cost us quite a bit in set-asides / welfare.

   b1) Black America

Fifty years of The Great Society do not seem to have put a dent in the Welfare Gap:




Nevertheless, the National Urban League's The State of Black America Report advises investing $1 trillion over the next five years to help black Americans 'catch up' with Whites in employment, salary levels, education levels, business ownership, and wealth.


Data sources: Home ownership,  Wealth, Unemployment 

Such set-asides helped lead to what Steve Sailer called the (very expensive) Minority Mortgage Meltdown in 2007.


Minority governance

Another form of welfare is when the state or federal government steps in where incompetent leadership has stumbled. In the U.S., where Blacks rule, state takeover of municipal boards (Detroit, Washington D.C.,  Camden,  Harrisburg,  Flint) and of school boards (Baltimore,  Memphis,  Little Rock, St. Louis,  Milwaukee) have unfortunately become par for the course.  At an often staggering pricetag.


One example: In the 1980s, the Feds forced Kansas City to overhaul its diverse inner city schools—to taxpayers' chagrin, a judge ruled that the financial sky was the limit:
$1.5 billion in special outlays has been devoted to the task of reconstructing the Kansas City schools … Annual spending per pupil, excluding capital costs, is twice as high as in nearby suburbs. 
The district boasts greenhouses, laboratories, a 25-acre farm, a planetarium, schools that offer "total immersion" in foreign languages, lavish athletic arenas, radio and TV studios, computers in every classroom--everything you could ask for.
[After 8 years] The dropout rate has remained the same … Daily attendance rates have fallen … Student performance on standardized tests has shown "no measurable improvement." "They had as much money as any school district will ever get," says Gary Orfield, an education professor who directs the project-- and who testified for the students who filed the lawsuit that led to the overhaul. "It didn't do very much."

   b2) Arab and Black France

As in the U.S., so in France with their Arab and Black underclass:
France's 'banlieues,' or suburbs, filled mostly with low-performing Diversity, are an endless money sink. The National Observatory on Urban Policy's 2015 report points out that despite half a trillion taxpayer euros invested in these vibrant areas in the last ten years, the quality of living there is still the worst in the nation.




   b3) Muslim U.K., Germany, Sweden

High welfare use among the lower-functioning Diverse is a Europe-wide phenomenon:



Data source: U.K.,  Germany Sweden



c) Leveling Down--Wage depression

At the same time that we try desperately to 'level up' our low-functioning Diverse, there's a parallel movement of 'leveling down'--when it comes to wages of the most vulnerable.

Politics makes strange bedfellows: Companies' thirst for cheap labor has dovetailed nicely with the Left's thirst for higher melanin levels. This has led to a consensus that importing millions of low-skill / high-melanin workers is Good For America.  Unsurprisingly for anyone who knows basic supply and demand, this turns out to depress wages for workers at the low end of the scale.



In Arizona, after tough immigration laws came in:
Between 2007 and 2012, Arizona’s population of undocumented workers dropped by 40% … the reduced competition for low-skilled jobs was a boon for some native-born construction and agricultural workers who got jobs or raises, and the departures also saved the state money on education and health care.

In Miami, after the huge unskilled influx of Mariel boatlift workers:
Even the most cursory reexamination implied that the wage of low-skill (non-Hispanic) working men in Miami declined substantially in the years after Mariel.
In the UK, after decades of low-skilled immigration:
Closer examination reveals that the biggest effect is in the semi/unskilled services sector, where a 10 percentage point rise in the proportion of immigrants is associated with a 2 percent reduction in pay.


Having seen the price of set-asides for Diversity, let us turn to a darker subject: The high cost of policing the un-policeable.


2) Policing those who can't police themselves

Unfortunately, many of our lower-performing Diverse have a hard time with impulse control and future orientation. Paired with a sense of alienation towards the larger culture and a laxer judicial system than their culture requires, this can prove very costly to their hosts.

a) Attacks on Infrastructure and Police

One way they take out their frustrations is on our infrastructure and first responders.

   a1) Arab and Black France


France's vibrant underclass seem to confuse themselves with Palestinians in the West Bank: They seem to believe they are living in their own land under occupation by a foreign power, rather than privileged guests being fed, housed, and schooled by a generous (and rapidly bankrupting) host.  To wit:

Every single day, year in, year out, over 100 cars are burned by the Diverse in France. That's one car every 15 minutes.

Every New Year's Eve in Paris alone, 500 dumpsters are set on fire by this same population. The torched-dumpster count every year in France is in the tens of thousands.

Every fifteen minutes in France

In just the last few months, we have seen

  • Two cops on a pick-pocketing call forced to hide in a store by an angry mob (Southeast); 
  • group of fifty youths attacking police, erecting barricades, destroys streetlights (North); 
  • A group of forty youths stoning the police, burning cars and dumpsters (South); 
  • Kids throwing cement blocks off a bridge onto passing police cars (North); 
  • A cop car attacked with baseball bats (Center); 
  • A mob destroying  cop car with stones and Molotov cocktails in what the police union calls a 'territorial war' (Paris); 
  • Mortar fired on a police car (Paris); 
  • Cops attacked with Molotov cocktails by 40-strong mob (Southeast); and 
  • Molotov cocktails thrown into a cop car while blocking the doors--two of the four police are burned and mutilated for life (Paris area). 

(This last incident is what led to the nationwide police protests of which you may have heard.)

That's just in the last few months.


We've also seen police stations spray painted with 'Allah Akbar' (near Paris); as well as besieged by bottles (Paris) and Molotov cocktails (North).

Not only the police but, inexplicably, firemen have also become a target of choice for the disaffected diversomobs. One of their favorite pastimes is to light dumpsters or cars on fire, then when the firemen arrive, to ambush them with rocks, as seen recently in Savoy (Southeast)Fleury-Mérogis (Paris metro)Calais (North); and Beauvais (North) (boulder through the windshield). 


Firemen have also been ambushed recently in Mantes la Jolie (Paris metro)Toulouse (Southwest)Angers (West); and La Seyne-sur-Mer (South), this last attack prompting a firemen's strike.


Another way the Diverse show their dissatisfaction with the French state is by destroying anything they think represents it, for example: 



In addition to all the above burning and ransacking, the Diverse in France have a special place in their heart for attacks on transport. Just in the past few months, we've seen:

  • Rock-throwing attacks on city buses leading drivers to re-route (Perpignan (South) and Paris metro); 
  • Seven city buses torched in one night in Beaugency  (Center); 
  • Several city buses and vans torched in the City Hall parking lot in La Corneuve (Paris metro); 
  • Hooded men ordering everyone off a city bus then setting it aflame, also in La Corneuve
  • Sarcelles's (Paris metro) brand new tramway already damaged and vandalized to the tune of 250 000 €; 
  • 'Restaurant of the Heart' soup kitchen's fleet of vehicles gone up in smoke in Wattrelos (North); and 
  • 52 motorcycles torched in front of the Montparnasse train station  (Paris)



The head of France's police union tells it like it is:

These "sensitive neighborhoods" are falling into sedition. It's harder and harder for police, firemen, and ambulances to access these 900 "difficult" neighborhoods, those we call the "territories lost to the Republic." In these areas, when someone calls us let's say for a noise complaint, we have to organize heavy protective logistics before going in. Nine times out of ten, we simply can't go at all, not having enough personnel to assure our protection. In the last six years, we've had a 40% increase in injured cops. For cops shot with guns, we're up 200% in three years.

   a2) Black America


A similar sense of 'occupied territory' has long festered in many of America's diverse ghettos. This classic in-group reminiscence from Second City Cop (a blog run by and for cops) about Chicago's notorious Cabrini Green projects, torn down in 2010, gives a taste:

·         'For those of you who didn't get a chance to patrol these monstrosities, you really have no idea what you missed.'

·         'Where else would you see bags of shit, bottles of piss, car parts, bathroom fixtures, canned vegetables, furniture and shitty diapers snatched off the baby's ass in a fit of rage to be flung out the window at the Police.'

·         'Never park the squad car next to the building. Like the time at the Washington park homes, 220 E. 63rd, when the refrigerator landed on the squad car that a couple of hard chargers had parked under the gallery.'


Chicago's notorious Cabrini Green

·         'Who can forget them opening up the top of the elevator and pouring gasoline on us and trying to light us up. RIP Highrises.'

·         'Before they caged the outside walkways a shopping cart pushed over at the police. Didn't see it but it sounded like a bomb went off. Thank God it missed.'

·         'Who remembers the days when milk and ketchup came in glass bottles and the walkways were not caged? BOOM! "Keep Looking Up!" was good advice long before Jack Horkheimer, the star gazer, said it.'


Along with this 'everyday' damage to infrastructure and attacks on police, we have the periodic explosions known as 'race riots.' Though hardly the only ones to riot, America's Afro underclass have taken the price tag to new heights. The top ten most expensive riots in U.S. history were all the work of our lower-functioning Diverse, with a total cost of $2.8 billion (in 2016 dollars) to the taxpayer.


Waves of Afro riots in the 1960s, as well as during Obama's presidency, have cost the country billions. The mid-1960s Watts, Newark, and Detroit riots alone caused an estimated $100 million in damages ($724 million in 2016 dollars).


Recent diversity riots in Ferguson, MO, Milwaukee, and Baltimore have cost $5.7, $5.8, and $20 million respectively.


Or, as a commenter at Captain Capitalism puts it:
But you know what frosts my pumpkin? All of these urban renewal grants with zip to show for the money, billions of dollars of good housing stock once the pride of white ethnics now burned out shells (Detroit, once the richest city, now a moonscape) ... 
How much must one hate to destroy a once in history "gift" of being sold 1965-1975 most every inner city, the most valuable part of the city anywhere else in the world, for but a fraction of its value, then to within 15 years lay waste to them like Hiroshimas and look to the collar suburbs as "next," which they soon became?


   a3) Black and Muslim Sweden and U.K.

From the Sweden Report blog:

The Swedish police recently released a map of 55 areas where they publicly admit to having surrendered control to the criminal gangs ["no-go zones"]. These areas have long had problems with mailmen, fire trucks and ambulances being attacked when trying to enter, which has led to them routinely requesting police escort. Now it’s the police being attacked outright. 

So-called “exclusion areas,” which is the politically correct term for the 186 ghettos that have sprung up around Sweden in the past two decades. These areas are predominantly populated by immigrants from Muslim countries with low education and even lower employment rates. 


Ethnic riots have also been costly in the U.K., where the Afro-led riots in London in 2011 cost taxpayers £133 million ($214 million). 


b) General Crime

Destroying infrastructure is expensive, but so is crime in general. Courts, prison, and police cost money. Replacing stolen goods cost money. Door locks, window bars, alarm systems all cost money. Our crime-prone Low-functioning Diverse strain our pocketbooks daily.

French prisons, also built to accommodate native French levels of crime, are bursting at the seams with Diversity (58K prison beds for 69K detainees).



As in France, so in the U.S.:


And in the U.K.:



And in Switzerland:




And in Australia:


And in Norway:
Wergeld: Paying criminals to behave

In Sweden, their vibrant delinquents are even being paid wergeld by the taxpayers to not commit crime. (This being Sweden, of course, many of these colonizing conquerors continue to enjoy a life of crime whilst receiving this subsidy.)

Cities across the U.S. are also launching programs to pay criminals to not commit crimes. 

Minneapolis has asked for half a million dollars to keep its new Diversity, Somalis, from committing crime and terrorism. This most vibrant of minorities is apparently unable to avoid such activities without massive cash infusions.



Having considered the many costs our low-functioning Diverse place on us through quotas and welfare, through damaged infrastructure and general crime, let us now examine the question from a slightly different angle.
    
        

3) Normal activity impossible

Another tax we pay when forced to live among the low-functioning Diverse is what we call the 'normal activity tax.' Hard to quantify, but all the little bits of daily life one takes for granted in a Diversity-free environment start to chip away when forced into close contact with the Vibrant.

a) Shopping


We are familiar with the 'food desert' in America, often linked to the high cost of keeping open supermarkets in places rife with theft, violence, and vandalism. France has seen the same problem, as the last big supermarket closes for good in Paris's Grigny suburb

L'Express quotes irate shoppers 'Kani Doumbia' and 'Fanta Diallo' who decry this abandonment into a a food ghetto , then buries the lede 10 paragraphs down:
Casino Group explains that they've kept the supermarket open for years despite the theft, recurring violence, and exploding security budget, all of which has left the store deep in the red.


Sending one's kids to the shopping mall alone has become tricky, as rowdy and violent groups of Diversity have led to a 'parent-accompanied-only' policy for teens. Or as Chris Rock put it, 'Every town has two malls. The one the white people go to… and the one the white people used to go to.'


Colin Flaherty has kept meticulous track of a phenomenon that has embarrassingly dogged Obama nearly since he stepped into office: the explosion of black teen flash mobs:
Thank God for YouTube. Or else we never would have know that hundreds of times in more than 50 cities since 2010, groups of black people have been roaming the streets of America – assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing. But today the denials are crumbling. The curtains are lifting. We now can see what so many public officials and media have been curiously desperate to deny: Race riots are back.

These roving hordes of diversity have ruined shoppers' days (sometimes sending them to the hospital) in Manhattan and Brooklyn, Portland, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Long Beach, Austin, Milwaukee, Louisville, Philadelphia, and all over Chicago.


This hot new trend has also spread among France's vibrantly diverse, with recent thieving flash mobs in Paris and in southwestern city Toulouse.



b) Public transport

During the Segregation era, Blacks and Whites were kept to separate areas of public transport. Since that time has ended, the latter have in many cities been more or less chased off of public trains and buses due to the predations of Diversity--all while paying the bulk of the taxes that fund it.



In our piece on Afros and Public Transport, we saw this 'tax' in action. The transport whose upkeep they pay for via taxes has become, for White Americans, a danger-fraught zone that many have abandoned for the more expensive automobile. In just the last few years, our transport system has seen brutal random black-on-white violence in NYC, Seattle, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Denver, Portland, and over and over in Chicago.

The face of transit crime in Chicago (clockwise from top left):


Blacks have also been attacking Whites on public transport in some less-expected places, such as Birmingham and Wolverhampton, England; Brussels, Paris, even Montreal and Toronto.


In France, regular attacks on train personnel  by the Diverse (generally Arabs or Afros) lead to train stoppages, as French rail agents have the 'right to retreat' (stop working) if they sense danger.


When a train conductor, as well as his train, were recently attacked by four 'youths,' causing 21,000€ of damage , astute commenter 'Anatole' noted:
'And to think, that €21,000 is calculated right into the GDP…Maybe that explains why they keep telling us that immigration makes us richer…!'


c) Public amusements


Another tax Diversity imposes on us is the 'public amusements tax.' The little pleasures we once took for granted can slip out of reach…


All over France, the summer months are marred by the hijinks of the Diverse. Their brawling, harassment, violence, and theft have caused city pools no end of suffering, pushing some to close down:
After the 60-strong brawl which closed the Ardentes Public Pool last year, history's repeating itself. And the mayor has decided to close the pool. 'It's always the same youths,' he says. 'They harass people, insult them, look for fights…people are scared. I mean, we put in a security guard, nothing's changed… We can't put in 40 security guards. I don't want to close the pool. We don't know what to do.'

The same story has repeated itself in such diverse places as Montpellier (South), Ardentes (Center), Castres (Southwest), Sansvignes-les-Mines (Center), Lyon (Southeast), Villeneuve-d'Ascq (North),  Villeurbane (Southeast), Créteil (Paris metro), Fréjus (South), Cergy (Paris metro), La Tronche (Southeast), Chateauroux (Center), Saint Chamond (Southeast), Aubenas (South), Gardanne (South), Belfort (East), Tournesol (Southeast), Longjumeau (Paris metro), and Alet-les-Bains (South).

Having closed so many pools due to their shenanigans, our low-functioning Diverse are left only one option, opening fire hydrants for fun--at immense cost to the taxpayer (this year a loss of 30 million liters just in the city of Lille).
Swimming pools are one very visible example of the 'public amusements tax.' But the Diverse have a way of ruining our fun in all sorts of venues.

The aforementioned black flash mobs have not only made life hard for shoppers, but have also caused violence and mayhem at festive public gatherings such as State Fairs in Iowa, Wisconsin, and Florida; St. Patrick's Day parades in Kansas City, Baltimore, and Minneapolis; Chicago's Jazz Fest; the Vintage Car Show in Flint; 4th of July fireworks in Cleveland; Detroit's Firefighters Charity Fund Carnival; Memorial Day in Jacksonville; Taste of Cincinnati; and Beach Week festivals in Virginia and South Carolina.


Not your granddaddy's state fair: Diversity Brawls at 
the ArizonaOklahomaWisconsin, and New Jersey State Fairs

Even something as innocent as an Easter Egg Hunt can suffer from too much Diversity-- on both sides of the Atlantic. In Macon, Georgia:
The annual Easter egg hunt in Central City Park, traditionally one of the largest in Middle Georgia, isn’t being held Saturday.  … Incidents occurred, he said, when parents became violent in an attempt to get eggs for themselves or their children. In past years, one woman was injured and several children were “trampled on,” Allen said.
Across the sea, Easter in Rennes, France:
Three hours before the egg hunt was to start, families had already taken most of the toy eggs. Some carried off "several," complained an organizer. … Struggling to control the crowd, the organizers hid another 150 eggs around 11:00. In the blink of an eye, they were all gone.

A commenter adds:
 'My wife works at the mayor's office in a town near Paris, exactly the same scene this morning… the Muslims bring their whole clan (I thought this was a Christian holiday? pffft)… They go back again and again… If you ask them to stop, they call you "racist"… The only way to control them is to stamp the kids' hands once they've filled their basket, otherwise it's total anarchy… What a screwed-up [Arab] community!'

Uncomfortable realtalk from Paul Kersey:
One of the most sentimental, tear jerking passages comes when Dr. [M.L.] King speaks eloquently about the evils of segregation, saying:

You suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she can't go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little mental sky.”


Who could possibly argue with such passionate words?  … The answer of course is any non black person who has tried to bring his own children to an amusement park.  Once places of affordable, innocent entertainment for American families, they have now degenerated into holding pens for feral minorities who can’t keep themselves from cursing, molesting, or simply attacking each other or anyone else that gets in their way. 
Dr. King, your daughter couldn’t go to Funtown because white Southerners knew that once it was integrated, your people would ruin it.  And you did. 



d) Islamisation

We have documented the subject extensively, as this type of Diversity encroaches ever further on Europe's public spaces. The list of your disappearing freedoms grows, if you happen to live in one of these locales.



In W. Europe, just to take a few examples, Muslims have demanded the right to

Is making us less free in our own countries 'taxing' us? We maintain that it is.


e) Feeling like a foreigner
Additionally, can one call it a 'tax' if one suddenly begins to feel like a foreigner in one's own town? We at TWCS think so.  Singer Morrissey got into hot water a few years ago for saying:
'The gates are flooded and anybody can have access to England and join in,…the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears. 
'The British identity is very attractive, I grew up into it and I find it quaint and very amusing. Other countries have held on to their basic identity yet it seems to me that England was thrown away. If you walk through Knightsbridge on any bland day of the week you won’t hear an English accent. You’ll hear every accent under the sun apart from the British accent.'

Morrissey was pilloried for lamenting this lost Britishness. He is not alone. Journalist Jane Kelly, in a piece in The Telegraph, explains why she's leaving London:
'The streets around Acton, which has been my home since 1996, have taken on a new identity. Because so many Muslims increasingly insist on emphasising their separateness, it feels as if they have taken over; my female neighbours flap past in full niqab, some so heavily veiled that I can’t see their eyes. 

'Nowadays, most of the tills in my local shops are manned by young Muslim men who mutter into their mobiles as they are serving. They have no interest in talking to me and rarely meet my gaze. I find this situation dismal. I miss banter, the hail fellow, well met chat about the weather, or what was on TV last night.

'... At my bus stop I rarely hear English spoken. I realise that we can’t return to the time when buses were mainly occupied by white ladies in their best hats and gloves going shopping, but I do feel nostalgic for the days when a journey on public transport didn’t leave me feeling as if I have only just arrived in a strange country myself.'

An anonymous tale from an English pastor's wife:

'I have just returned to London, where I have lived since I was 11. I have been away for four years, living as an ethnic minority in a monocultural part of the world, amassing a host of stories to tell to disbelieving friends. On the whole, I am glad to return. I shan't miss some locals' assumptions that, being a white woman, if I was outside after dark, as I occasionally was, I must be a prostitute eager to give them a blow job.  ... Yes, I am very glad to have left Britain's second city--Birmingham.'


'I lived in San Diego back in the early 60's and I can't recall seeing signs in Spanish or hearing Spanish spoken beyond Tijuana. Now where I live near L.A. I often feel like a foreigner in my own country. Instead of adapting to the traditional ways of the U.S. the new immigrants want to change us to be like the countries from where they came. I don't think this is good change.'
It is a schizophrenic existence, living at illegal immigration’s intersection. Each week I pick up trash, dirty diapers, even sofas and old beds dumped in our orchard by illegal aliens. So far I have caught more than 15 illegal dumpers, all Mexican, in the act. In the last 20 years, four cars piloted by intoxicated illegal aliens have veered off the road into our vineyard, causing thousands of dollars in unrecompensed damage.   
...At the service station a mile away, I rarely hear English spoken; almost every car that pulls in displays a Mexican flag decal pasted somewhere.





In 2014, a visiting British CEO made some unsavory remarks about the Paris train station ('the squalor pit of Europe').  The French were only too quick too agree, including this disillusioned Parisian commuter who did not mince words:



'… Every kind of third-world trash, the ugliness, the attitudes, these foreigners who know nothing about personal space. They bray and shriek, throw their food on the floor (corn cobs or McHalal), they spit, they stink. The Africans in knock-off Louis Vuitton, knocked up and pushing a stroller stuffed with rugrats; the Arabs with their 50 shades of burka, oily old bearded Muslims in nightdresses; Gypsy pickpockets pregnant by their uncle/pimp; Pakistanis who'll sell anything as long as it's flashy, ugly, and useless…

'All of these flea-bitten dregs, as well as the parasites who jump the turnstile (80% of whom seem to be Black), this whole menagerie that's stinking up Paris… to me they may as well be from another planet.'
While the language is harsh, the frustration is palpable and perhaps understandable.




We have seen the burden lower-functioning Diversity places on us via welfare, crime, and prohibiting normal activity. Our multiculturalist die-hards may even be willing to accept all of this--but there is one tax that even for them is a bridge too far.


4) Schools & White Flight

It is expensive enough to educate all our children publicly from ages 6 to 16. When Diversity is added into the mix, costs can go through the roof.

a) Languages


Even flyover country has not been spared: Wichita's school district now must pull out its wallet for the wonders of  diversity:
Currently, 81 languages are spoken in the district. Because federal law requires schools to provide information to parents in their preferred language [!], an Arabic speaker is on call to help teachers and others communicate with families. … The 10 main language groups, in order, are: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Lao, Cambodian, the Chinese family of languages, Bengali, Urdu and Swahili.  …  This year, 9,316 students qualified for ESL services, or about 18 percent of the district population.


A teacher reports live from the trenches in Nashville:


I teach for Metro Nashville Public Schools … At my high school around 30 percent of the total student population has a first language other than English, with as many as 120 languages represented. More than 14 percent need English language (ELL) services. 
School districts nationwide are pouring millions of dollars into helping students learn English.  ... Researchers say it takes students five to seven years, sometimes more, to attain the English proficiency necessary to do the academic work of grade-level peers.

Atlanta schools are even dealing with Central American kids who only speak Mayan (for whom no translators can be found) and have never been to school in their lives.




b) Discipline


Overwhelming language-learning costs is just one school 'diversity tax.' Another is the debacle that has been U.S. school de-segregation + lax discipline, which has led to massive and expensive white flight. And under Obama, it's only gotten more intense. His Justice Department has threatened schools in which black students are disciplined more than white ones. The results have been edifying:

The Post story quoted an L.A. teacher as saying, “I was terrified and bullied by a fourth grade student. The black student told me to ‘Back off b—h,’ I told him to go to the office and he said, ‘No, b—h and nobody can make me.” 

Sperry wrote about Allen Zolman, a former middle school teacher in the Philadelphia school district, who testified in front of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights:“I’m going to torture you,” Zolman claims one student told him. “I’m doing this because I can’t be removed.”

In the Portland school district, Sperry wrote that “After a black high school boy repeatedly punched his teacher in the face, sending her to the emergency room, the teacher, who is white, was advised by the assistant principal not to press charges. The administrator lectured her about how hard it is for young black men to overcome a criminal record.”

Holly Houston is a post-traumatic stress specialist. She counsels teachers in Chicago public schools [90% Black/Hispanic] and reported, "Of the teachers that I have counseled over the years who have been assaulted, 100 percent of them have satisfied diagnostic criteria for PTSD." It's not just big-city schoolteachers traumatized. Dr. Darlyne Nemeth, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana [Public Schools: 80% Black], said last year, "I have treated many teachers with PTSD, and I am currently following a few of them."


A Philadelphia seventh-grade girl with a history of incidents against her teacher sprayed perfume in the teacher's face after telling her that she smelled "like old white pussy." After telling her classmates "I'm about to kick this bitch's white ass," she shoved the teacher, knocking her to the floor. In 2014, a Philadelphia 68-year-old substitute teacher was knocked out cold by a student. Earlier that year, two other teachers in the same school were assaulted. Philadelphia schools employ close to 400 school police officers.

Language learning and lack of discipline aren't the only costly burdens the Diverse place on our schools. In places where under-performing Diversity is made up of Muslims, other dangers lurk:

c) Islamisation

A French high school history teacher with 30 years of teaching in immigrant neighborhoods tells his tale:


This sectarian spirit shows up in class with kids arguing about the lessons [i.e. Israel/Palestine], causing trouble, segregation in the lunchroom, special halal menus, being excused from activities which are not "Islamically correct" (i.e. swimming), kids getting weak from fasting during Ramadan… 
There's a real Islamic network in these neighborhoods, even some hall monitors and teachers are involved, "big brothers" who are regular mosque-goers. These people jump to the defense of any kid who gets into a conflict with a teacher. The administration of course lets it all slide in order to not "rock the boat."

Paul Eluard Primary School, Bobigny (Paris), Class of 1977, Class of 2012

A newly minted grade school teacher in France, sent to teach in an immigrant neighborhood, can hardly believe her eyes:
Facing off with a kid who tells me his "dad is going to come slit my throat" if I reprimand him, I don't even know how to react… If I reprimand two black students the same day, guaranteed I'll be called "racist"… Only a few months from junior high, and they can't even express themselves in French. It's discouraging for me, and sad for them.



d) White flight

The result of all this enriching diversity? As in the U.S., so in France: Educational white flight. Even the most well-intentioned leftists are fleeing, with all the expense that entails.



Around the World

As Steve Sailer has remarked, white students are a precious resource with whom People of Color insist on sending their children to school. In the southern city of Montpellier, Arab moms are conducting a sit-in to keep this white gold from slipping away: 
Grade school moms are fighting for more diversity in the classroom. Safia explains: 'These four schools have 600 kids, all of Moroccan origin. …  How can they feel French when they grow up only around others like themselves? In class photos, we want to see little blonds and redheads next to our kids.' They decided to have a sit-in in their neighborhood schools. 
'It was better before,' says Khadéja. 'There was a church, a bakery, a newsstand… Asians, Africans, French, other people lived here. Then they all started to move out: We weren't paying attention, but soon there was nobody but Moroccans. We had mixed schools growing up, but now our kids don't.'

Exactly the same white flight is taking place in The Netherlands
Faced with an increasingly segregated education system, Dutch immigrant children have taken to the streets of their ethnically mixed Amsterdam neighbourhood seeking "white" pupils to attend their schools and help their integration. … today they're going door-to-door, ringing doorbells and delivering flyers saying "We're looking for white pupils".

…In Denmark


At Langkaer High School in suburban Århus, Sarah Azzam and Hafsa Omar are both in a class with no Danish kids. "The level isn't very good. If there were more Danish kids, they could help us," says Sarah. Hafsa adds, "This distribution of students is clearly racist."  But Danish students prefer other high schools, with only 5 or 10% foreign kids. Says principal Bundgaard: "If we end up with only two or three Danish kids left in a classroom, they leave. We can't keep them."


…In Norway
Avtar Singh, a Punjabi Norwegian, confronted Gro Flaten, the school's headmistress, on why his son, Gurjot, had no ethnic Norwegian classmates.  "She said straight out that the school had experienced ethnic Norwegian students dropping out if they weren't grouped together in smaller classes," he told Dagsavisen newspaper.

"This is apartheid. They do this because I'm from Africa and my father is from Africa," said Ilias Mohamed, 17, from Somalia, who was part of the immigrant-only class. "But everyone of us is a Norwegian."

…In Sweden
I visited a local school called Tensta Gymnasium, which prides itself on its immigrant-heavy student body. I asked if attracting blond-haired and blue-eyed Swedish schoolchildren to Tensta Gymnasium might aid integration, to which principal Sofie Abrahamsson replied, “Why should we put money into attracting those from elsewhere, when we know they won’t come?”

…In Australia
White students are fleeing public schools, leaving behind those of Aboriginal and Middle Eastern origin, a secret report by high school principals reveals. The New South Wales Secondary Principals Council conducted a confidential survey which raises serious concerns about "white flight" undermining the public education system and threatening social cohesion. Some teachers and principals have described it as "de facto apartheid".

…and in the UK:


White, Asian and black children should be encouraged to be placed into less diverse schools to tackle growing segregation in towns and cities, a landmark report has suggested. ...they found white British populations are dwindling at record levels and in extreme cases have halved in a decade. … The report says: 'Politicians and policy-makers need to encourage white British residents to remain in diverse areas; … encouraging similar choices with respect to placing pupils in diverse schools.'



What is the cost?

This 'white flight' may in fact be the biggest Diversity Tax of all.

Chicago's Austin neighborhood, street scenes from 1928 and 2013

Via Steve Sailer, Elizabeth Warren's study on why the middle class is poorer today than their parents:
Even as millions of mothers marched into the workforce, … families were swept up in a bidding war, competing furiously with one another for their most important possession: a house in a decent school district… Bad [minority] schools impose indirect—but huge—costs on millions of middle-class families. In their desperate rush to save their children from failing schools, families are literally spending themselves into bankruptcy.

Never mentioned is the cost that families incur in order to live in a safe place away from the destruction of poor blacks. ... Of the suburban white families I know, the woman works full-time. Homes in “safe” neighborhoods are hundreds of thousands of dollars more expensive than my mostly black neighborhood. 
Four bedroom historical homes here cost $60,000 with low taxes, but then you must deal with bad schools, feral thugs, teenage gangs, graffiti, police presence, shootings, blight, section-8 rentals, and poverty. If we lived in the suburbs, our home would cost over $350,000, taxes would be much higher, and my husbands commute would be more expensive.

White flight is expensive indeed when it means fleeing abroad, as is the case with the waves of Germans forsaking their Merkel-diversified country:
More than 1.5 million Germans, many of them highly educated, left Germany during the past decade. … A real estate agent in a town near Lake Balaton, a popular tourist destination in western Hungary, said that 80% of the Germans relocating there cite the migration crisis as the main reason for their desire to leave Germany.




II. HIGHER-FUNCTIONING MINORITIES

Even among many HBD-aware, today there's a consensus that while importing low-functioning Arabs and Hispanics may be undesirable, importing high-IQ, bourgeois groups like Han Chinese or Hindus is a terrific idea. They work hard, their kids succeed in school, they pay their taxes… in a word, model citizens. Filling up entire cities with these people in what was once an Anglo country couldn't have any downsides, could it?

Once again, those who choose to look at things only in terms of GDP are missing the bigger picture.

How 'taxing' is it when those who aren't culturally compatible flood our shores?

1) Corruption

As we have seen, immigrants from low commonweal-orientation cultures tend to bring their low trust with them. What does it mean for us?

a) Cheating

Chinese college students have been accused of widespread cheating, which can lead ultimately to a devaluation of those college's degrees:


The Iowa cheating rings are the latest evidence of how a vibrant East Asian industry is corrupting the U.S. higher education system by gaming entrance exams, concocting college applications and completing college coursework on behalf of students.
As Reuters reported in March, some companies are leveraging weaknesses in the SAT, a standardized college entrance exam, to help clients gain an unfair advantage on the test by feeding them questions in advance. In addition, Reuters has identified companies in China that help students contrive their entire college application – embellishing or ghostwriting application essays, doctoring letters of recommendation from high school teachers, and even advising kids to obtain fake high school transcripts.

From a Wall Street Journal investigation:
Faculty and domestic students interviewed said it appears that substantial numbers of international students either don’t comprehend or don’t accept U.S. standards of academic integrity. At the University of Arizona, the staff works hard to explain academic integrity to those from abroad, but “our students don’t always understand what plagiarism is,” said Chrissy Lieberman, associate dean of students. 
...  At nearly all [schools] that provided data, the rate of such cheating reports was at least twice as high for foreign as for domestic students, ranging up to over eight times as high.

Ditto in  the UK:


The United Kingdom is suffering a cheating epidemic fuelled by the influx of international students, with almost 50,000 students at British universities caught cheating in the past three years, according to an investigation by The Times newspaper. 
The investigation found that students from outside of the European Union were more than four times as likely to cheat in exams and coursework. At Queen Mary University of London 75% of postgraduates found to have plagiarised were from overseas with a third from China, the newspaper reported.
 

Frustrated Australian commenters on Reddit World News forum:
'I am a lecturer at a prominent University in Sydney – [A cheating Chinese student's] parents threatened to sue - and I thought at the time 'good luck doing that from Beijing...' The department changed her grade [from 48%] to 50%, she passed, and graduated with the rest of her class that year. It breaks my heart - because I'm lecturing with exactly the same postgrad degree that these students are cheating their way towards.' 

'Oh how I love the Chinese and Indian students in my Chemical Engineering program. Two were caught with cameras in a test, both still in school. Constantly cheating, constantly ducking any real work, plagiarism in every @*%ing assignment.'



b) Immigration fraud


Large-scale immigration fraud is also part of the diversity tax:
Susan Xiao-Ping Su, founder and president of the phony Tri-Valley University in Pleasanton, was accused of charging hundreds of foreigners, mostly Indian nationals, tuition and other payments for visa-related documents that allowed them to live and work in the U.S. while she purported that they were here legally to study. She made more than $5.6 million and used the money to buy commercial real estate, a Mercedes Benz and multiple homes.

Three area residents, Hee Sun Shim, Hyung Chan Moon, and Eun Young Choi, were arrested and charged Wednesday for allegedly operating four Southern California schools for Korean and Chinese students who never attended classes and lived in other states on student visas in a "pay-to-stay" scheme.


c) Spying

High-level Chinese spying has been a chronic problem. Just a few recent examples:



Naturalized citizens Kun Shan "Joey" Chun (FBI agent) and Edward Lin (Navy officer) were charged with espionage for passing state secrets to their home country. Mo Hailong, 'permanent resident of the United States pursuant to an H-1B visa,' was charged with smuggling trade secrets from Dupont and Monsanto to a Chinese agribusiness giant. Microchip engineer Hai Xuan and his wife, Hong Sheng were charged with selling their Missouri employer's trade secrets to a Chinese firm, but fled the country before their trial. 

Industrial espionage purveyors Wei Pang, Kun Shan "Joey" Chun, 
Edward Lin, Du and Yu Qin, Mike Yu

Married couple Du and Yu Qin (U.S. citizens) were convicted of selling GM trade secrets to a Chinese company. Mike Yu was convicted of the same crime, this time for Ford Motor Co.  Engineers Hao Zhang and Wei Pang were charged with stealing radio frequency filter technology from their Colorado Defense Dept-funded employers and passing it along to China.


d) Welfare fraud

Our higher-functioning Diversity also has a knack for figuring out how to milk our welfare system, even when they don’t need it and have never paid into it.

Chinese and Koreans, among others, are ruthlessly scamming the SSI (elder welfare) system in the U.S.:

SSI (Supplemental Security Insurance) was intended, as its name implies, as a supplement for older Americans who did not have sufficient resources to live on. But immigrant community groups, responding to encouragement of the federal government, started widely promoting the program among elderly immigrants in the early 1990s.   
The top immigrant SSI user groups per capita as of the 1990s were the Chinese and Koreans. ...A typical scenario in the Bay Area at the time (and still largely true today) involved a senior on SSI, living with his son and daughter-in-law, both Silicon Valley engineers from China or Taiwan.  ... MaCurdy’s study found that a large portion of the immigrant SSI recipients live in above-average income households.


In the U.S., our taste for importing health care professionals from the low-trust climes has led to an all-you-can-eat buffet of multicult benefits fraud:
Twenty-five [Cameroonian] people were charged Thursday with obtaining at least $75 million in fraudulent Medicaid payments from the District of Columbia government, a series of cases that federal prosecutors said added up to the largest health-care fraud in the city's history. Among those charged was Florence Bikundi, 51, of Bowie, Md., ... she was able to [falsely] bill the city for $75 million in Medicaid.
“This investigation has revealed that Medicaid fraud in the District of Columbia is at  epidemic levels,” said U.S. Attorney Machen. “This fraud diverts precious taxpayer dollars,  drives up the cost of health care, and jeopardizes the strength of a program that serves the most  vulnerable members of our society.”

In fact, one of multiculturalism's greatest successes in the U.S. has been defrauding Medicare. The FBI indictment lists read like an Ellis Island dream. In just the last few years, in addition to the above embassy-linked Cameroonian ring in D.C., we've been treated to a Nicaraguan fraud ring in Florida, a Filipino fraud ring in Chicago, an Armenian fraud ring in New York, a Nigerian and Afro-American fraud ring in Louisiana, separate Iranian and Nigerian fraud rings in Houston, as well as a multi-national Muslim Medicare fraudapolooza in Michigan


The UK's National Health Service is also paying its diversity tax:
There is no greater symbol of Britain’s social capital than the NHS. But it is being eaten alive from the inside by ethnic parasites who have no loyalty to the wider British community …the whole system works on trust which you cannot have in a multicultural society where ethnic groups, who do not think of themselves as part of a wider community, see it is a resource to be plundered. 

As a BBC documentary showed, the system is wide open to “health tourist” abuse whereby foreign nationals use NHS services to which they are not entitled, place an already overburdened system under intolerable strain. It is a form of predation to which the traditional White population, with their almost reflexive honesty, have no defence.
A report has indeed concluded that foreign, especially African, doctors working in the NHS are far less safe than their British counterparts. University College London said that the majority of the 88,000 foreign doctors practising the UK would fail exams if held to the same standards as their British colleagues. It called for exams to be toughened up “to ensure patient safety.”  It has yet to be acted upon. 



e) Election fraud


Pakistanis in Britain are certainly high-functioning when it comes to committing massive voter fraud:


The study, headed by Sir Eric Pickles, found that authorities are not doing enough to stamp out bullying and religious intimidation among Asian authorities during the lead up to elections. The report has even called for a dramatic overhaul of the electoral system, warning the "integrity of democracy" is at stake. 

… Last year’s general election was littered with accusations of radical Islamists pressuring voters at polling stations, reportedly claiming that voting was "un-Islamic". ... There have also been accusations of postal voting fraud in predominantly Asian areas, just years after a judge found evidence of fraud in Birmingham.

British government officials are sounding the alarm:

Dominic Grieve QC, the Attorney General, said ministers should “wake up” to the threat of corruption in public life, which he attributed to “minority communities” that operate a “favour culture”.  … He said that the growth of corruption was “because we have minority communities in this country which come from backgrounds where corruption is endemic. It is something we as politicians have to wake to up to”. Mr Grieve said he was referring to “mainly the Pakistani community” but added that other minority communities had similar problems.



2) Wage depression (high end)

Many shrugged while millions of Mestizo peasants took over blue collar work in the U.S. But now that the white collar are being hit as well, people are starting to take notice:

The H-1B program is designed to let U.S. companies hire foreigners at prevailing wages when they can't find qualified Americans. And U.S. companies, especially those in Silicon Valley, have been clamoring for years to raise the cap of 85,000 so that they can hire more foreign workers. They've long denied the charges that they've exaggerated the employee shortage, so they can instead reduce wages by importing workers.  … But now we know major H-1B users have in fact rigged the system to do exactly that.


Commenter at The Atlantic explains:
The abuse of the H1B program is nothing new. The idea of there being a worker shortage is a complete myth. Companies just don't want to pay the market wage. Instead they'd rather import workers from overseas. And even if they aren't cheaper, as this article maintains, they're still more easily exploited. If you're an American and you hate your job, you have the option of quitting and finding another one. Easier said than done, but still better than what the "guest worker" has to face, which is deportation.



3) Feeling Like a Foreigner

Above, we quoted some stories of people perturbed by seeing their cities flooded with what we call 'lower-performing' immigrants. But there is also vexation on the 'higher-performing' end.

Guess the location:


If you guessed 'Richmond, British Columbia, Canada,' pat yourself on the back. Our unflappably nice neighbors to the north have, it seems, had enough:
'As a Vancouver born Caucasian, I'm already a minority in my hometown and country. Just down the street from me in Burnaby, there's a huge Asian strip mall that doesn't have ANY English signage. Clearly as a Canadian born white person, I'm not welcome there. … I don't understand anything being spoken in public anymore.'

'I too was born in Vancouver. This place has turned into the most unfriendly city I've ever encountered. Sense of community? What community? It appears I've moved to China and had no say in it.' 
'These groups segregate themselves, dump garbage anywhere they please, push and shove to get ahead of others, shoot snot rockets from their noses, are constantly loudly hoarking phlegm, and I even got rear ended by one who claimed I reversed into them in stopped traffic (only English word she knew was the word liar). That's how they contribute.'

'I rent, and have Chinese, above, below and on both sides. I'm tired of trying to say Good morning or any greeting to any of them. It's met with sneers. I just came back from Tim Hortons, the place was full, myself and my friend were the only ones that weren't Chinese and there was zero English being spoken. I'm forced to feel like a foreigner in my home country. I live in Coquitlam.'

'I too am fed up with job seeking where Cantonese or Mandarin are required. We're just handing our country, values and culture over to them and they are laughing at us for it and not even discreetly. This isn't immigration, it's an invasion.'




4) Importing an Alien Elite

There's a general feeling today idea that importing millions of high-intelligence foreigners is a boon for which we should all be grateful. But again, that intelligence comes with a packet of character traits that we may or may not find it comfortable to live side-by-side with:
Over the past 10 years, the proportion of white students at Lynbrook High School has fallen by nearly half, to 25% of the student body. At Monta Vista, white students make up less than one-third of the population, down from 45%. 
… Whites aren't quitting the schools because the schools are failing academically. Quite the contrary: Many white parents say they're leaving because the schools are too academically driven and too narrowly invested in subjects such as math and science at the expense of liberal arts and extracurriculars like sports and other personal interests. 
The two schools, put another way that parents rarely articulate so bluntly, are too Asian. … Ms. Gatley, the Monta Vista PTA president: "White kids are thought of as the dumb kids," she says.

East Asians' 'over-representation' at top universities has led to maximum quotas on their enrollment, similar to those against Jewish students a hundred years ago. In California, such quotas are forbidden. The result:



The highest-IQ group in the world, Ashkenazi Jews, have blossomed in the West. At various times and places, they have come to dominate certain fields. As with the Chinese in Malaysia or the Indians in Uganda, this has often rubbed their hosts the wrong way. A few examples (2012 data):


Can it be considered a 'tax' to be obliged to submit to an alien elite at the head of one's academic, business, and cultural institutions? Many throughout history have thought so.



*     *     *


Despite the powers that be repeating 'Diversity is our strength' from dusk until dawn, study after study has shown just the opposite: 



  • Societies that are less genetically homogeneous are more prone to conflict.  
  • Diversity has been shown to have a negative effect on innovation
  • Contra U. of Michigan president Bollinger quoted above, diversity not only does not make college campuses better, it worsens the campus experience for both students and faculty.

Harvard's Robert Putnam did the most extensive study in history (30,000 subjects across North America) on this question, then hid his results for ten years out of embarrassment. What did he find?
In his findings, Putnam writes that those in more diverse communities tend to "distrust their neighbors, regardless of the color of their skin, to withdraw even from close friends, to expect the worst from their community and its leaders, to volunteer less, give less to charity and work on community projects less often, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television. … that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings."

Later studies reproduced exactly the same results in the U.K., Canada, and Denmark. It has even been shown that living in diverse neighborhoods is harmful to the health of minorities.

So if Diversity is really the heavy burden to Western societies we have shown it to be… why is it considered so sacrosanct today?  When truly pressed, the Diversoholics can only seem to point to two benefits:

1) Lots of foreign restaurants

2) The aesthetic pleasure of looking at high-melanin people

To the first point, the famously immigrant-shy Japanese have found a way to pepper their cities with foreign restaurants that may shock our Diversophiles: They travel to other countries, study their cuisine, and bring the recipes home. 


To the second, what can one say? The leftist is hard-wired to find difference exciting. In times past, people wired in this way got their exoticism-fix in other ways: Indulging in theatre, art, literature, music, or costume from far-away places…or even going to visit them.


Were Western countries to expel every bit of Diversity tomorrow, each would still have  a dysfunctional native white underclass, as well as an out-of-touch native white elite class.

Why, then, must we import many multiples of these same problems, but in different hues?  

As for the Diversity we've long had--for example, Afros in the U.S.--it is critical that we understand that different groups are really different from each other. We cannot hold everyone to the same standard in all areas, as some are beginning to understand:



As for mass immigration, when the aesthetic arguments (which, on balance, are trivial) are swept aside, it appears that we are left with a social engineering exercise almost on a par with the great Communist Experiment. Like the latter, the former may end up having results more long-lasting and traumatic than any of the first true believers could have imagined as they were rushing in head-first.

We would only ask that policy-makers have the wisdom to look at the data, really look at it, before advancing any further down this ill-lighted path.

Good post. This line must be an error: "Every single day, year in, year out, over 100 cars are burned by the Diverse in France. That's one car every 4 hours". It must be 4.cars every hour.

Only a portion along in this as-usual-massive-effortpost.

But wanted to note on the Kansas City school district spending binge:

That money didn't just evaporate, even though its ostensible purpose was nonsense and its ostensible recipients too mired in their own primitivism to do anything but wander through the Luxury Resort schools, gape, snore, and vandalize.

All those facilities didn't just appear. They were contracted out. Somebody got paid to plan, bid, and build them. Somebody gets paid to sort-of maintain them. The materials and prefabbed parts and equipment comes from somewhere real and cost money to research and make and inventory and distribute.

This is the undergirding problem of our education system in the US. The underclass/undertow are being imported in the name of diversity to create jobs for the construction companies, the architects, the facilities managers, the engineers, the manufacturers.

As though we have no other reason to build than the Diversitopian fantasy that if you stick primitive people in highly advanced settings, the magic of the latter will rub off via some voodoo/juju proximity vector.

The Ed Biz supplies trillions in contracts to these infrastructure people, whose jobs are nuts and bolts, bricks and mortar, real and realer. These jobs can't be handed to just any undertow moron to do.

But wait one.

Gary Orfield, an EDUCATION PROFESSOR, was directing a massive infrastructure and facilities overhaul for a major city's school district?

Curiouser and curiouser! Education departments attract, process, and offer credentials to the dumbest:

This is the real diversity tax in my mind. It's a bunch of activity directed at an impossible end, when that activity could be directed at higher things.

Of course an eye on "higher things" these days is a Hate Crime. Especially since education majors don't have the IQ to imagine anything higher than a cushy job pushing their favored ideology.

Diversitopian policy, and the phony-baloney economics that backs it up, basically conjures fiat currency into existence so it can be burned. There is no higher purpose to it, no higher vision. It turns our greatest accomplishments into the worst decadence.

So great to see a new piece, MG. Thanks for the solstice gift!

The EEOC's and federal diversity initiative's effect is not just felt at the hiring stage. Almost every major company that "builds" things will have an affirmative action policy. Why? Because these companies get a significant portion of their business from government contracts, and the government requires terms that obligate AA, etc. These companies then require the same of all their subcontractors, so you have a whole web of soft-enforcement. Employment lawyers and the HR types that deal with these requiremental are disproportionately "diverse," just more recipients of the wealth transfer to minorities. And that says nothing about the favored status of minority-owned businesses in winning government contracts. It's often just a scheme for covering graft.

Every single day, year in, year out, over 100 cars are burned by the Diverse in France. That's one car every 4 hours.

Actually, that's 4 cars per hour.  Dino Cini got this first, but the error remains.

Mikke--

'This is the real diversity tax in my mind. It's a bunch of activity directed at an impossible end, when that activity could be directed at higher things.'

Good point about the Kansas City schools. It's true that in the end, almost all the taxes and 'taxes' we pay end up back in the productive economy. Even the most worthless bureaucrat in Washington who spends all day looking at Facebook takes the salary we pay him and spends it on a house, a car, clothes, food, etc. You get your house broken into by some vibrant youths, and the window repairman is happy, the guy who replaces your TV is happy, the guy who sells you your new alarm system is happy...

But yes, the taxpayer should get a say in the return on investment of his taxes. Especially when it comes to the perpetual motion machine of trying to make lower-IQ kids test at the same level as higher-IQ kids, throwing ten gazillion dollars at the problem isn't going to change anything. And as you say, the whole cottage industry that's sprung up around trying to square this circle is an enormous cost. Do we even realize how much we're spending on this futility? I get the sense that most Blank-Slatists haven't the slightest clue.

It's always a pleasure to read your thoughtful comments. I hope your solstice is enjoyable!

Indeed, the whole minority-contract set-aside industry has become a real behemoth. I did some research on it here and here. Another thing I was surprised by was how big the 'racial shake-down' racket (by Jesse Jackson and the like) is. Just one example from that first piece:

After being sued for insufficiently flattering the vanity
of its minority employees, Boeing has reached deep into its pockets and coughed up:

-$3.7 million for 'equal opportunity and diversity training' initiatives.
-$500 million to 3 minority-owned investment banks who have financial ties to Jackson's Chicago-based Rainbow-PUSH Coalition.
-$1 million to the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) Business Consortium Fund (BCF).
-$225,000 to Rosalind Crenshaw, a supplier diversity specialist, to act as Boeing's liaison to Jesse Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH organization.
-$150,000 for four scholarships annually for owners of minority businesses to attend the J. L. Kellogg School of Business for the Advanced Management Training Program , and two scholarships annually to attend the Minority Business Executive Program at the Tuck Business School.

And that's just one company! Jackson and his ilk are making a fortune of off this--and who's really paying the price?

In the case of chineses, how relevant has been the communist regime to ''shape'' the ''collective mindset'' of this people, or, seems more factual, different regimes tend to require [slightly] different people to the top and communist regimes are extremely attracted for certain types of psychopaths, those ''on the left'', who are purely attracted to the power, instead in capitalistic regimes where we have materialistic psychos being attracted to the top (= more money)

They always were, on avg OR disproportionately speaking, like that* Greedy, pragmatic and dishonest*

China and India are gigantic demographies, in the way, everything that is correlated their demographic numbers and in interactions with other populations appear to be gigantic, well, because they are, in absolute terms.

Btw, let's not forget that the Chinese rude "manners" are due to Communist rule and good manners being "bourgeoisie". I feel there has been great improvement in this area, and to some extent the Chinese are also starting to realize this. (I'm Swedish btw, I just mention this since Chinese manners were mentioned in the article).

Santoculto--

You make a good point about different political systems rewarding different character traits. Then it really becomes a confusing question of how much nature, how much nurture, over many generations? This is the key question for immigration policy. How likely are these people to quickly adopt our values...or to EVER adopt them?

peterfirefly--

You are correct, sorry about the error. It is indeed Arhus and not Copenhagen, I've made the correction. And thank you for reading.

Well there are fraction of ''native' people who never adopt even in relative terms the values of their own country. Today we could to say that native conservatives types are vis à vis with imported conservatives in terms of ''adopt'' ''new'' values. Interestingly this new ''citizens' are very similar with native cons than with that crazy dumbs who are importing them.

I think how behavior is itself a level of intensity/frequency and can be triggered by different environmental interactions (this don't deny extreme role of the genetics, well, genetics delineate the limits/limitates this intensity levels), primarily of course a inherited behavioral potentialities, and with interaction of environment this intensity will be mediated.

Not so self-aware people tend to criticize less what's going on in their environment and even with themselves so they are more guided by their [failed] gut-instinct, specially the social ones. They easily sacrifice the truth of facts to their own comforts.

Maybe the great dilema of human behavior is not us, those with higher self-awareness, but surprisingly the average's joey, despising the homogeneous types (more cons, or more libs, or more rationals, they tend to be behaviorally constant regardless the type of environment). This chameleons are extremely suscetible to conform to the social scenario but we have different types of it, for example, we have the silent conformist, they never really expose their inner feelings and beliefs, generally introvert. We have the self-deluded conformist ''the best way to lie for itself is believe in your own lies''.

Exactly like ''new emperor clothes''.

Authoritarian (well supposedly our ''illiberal democracies''... are democratic) governments select authoritarians, conformists will conform, anyway, dissidents (contextual or universal) will be persecuted or be ostracized.

In every human society we have the same types, universalistics to the nepotists. What differentiate them is the proportion of all this types and what group who are in the power [ usually elites tend to be conservatives, authoritarians and psychopath-like/narcisistic or power-seekers ].

How chineses has behaved in western world. Less authoritarian, seems.

JayMan said...

Excellent post, full of data and a classic in your style.

My main criticism however is that there isn't a whole lot by way of quantification of the problems posed by high-ability immigrants here like there is for low-ability immigrants. Some numbers would greatly strengthen the case you're trying to make.

dc.sunsets said...

The common thread for this entire tapestry is the pervasive illusion of limitless resources available to squander on what amounts to make-work.

For a very long time the people of the West have enjoyed an above-subsistance lifestyle and that excess is largely squandered on something, generally whatever happens to be fashionable.

For 50 years the main fashion has been the Universalist Religion. For most of that time, the confluence of fully fiat money & a secular bond bull market has generated the biggest mania for guns & butter on history.

No tree grows to the sky. When the promises of endless future cash flows evaporate, and people finally awaken from this long fantasy, the sudden perception of resource restriction will bring about a 180 degree change in attitude toward immigration & diversity.

The reservoir of rage now filled to overflowing will burst it's dam. I would not want to be a highly visible minority when that day arrives.

You're absolutely right, hard numbers would be an immense help. They were the final element to this post, but I felt the research was taking too long and I very much wanted to publish. This is something I hope to add or exapand on in a future post. Thanks as always for your feedback, very much appreciated.

Indeed, like so many ideas we today insist are 'universal moral principles' (animal rights, no child labor), multiculturalism is in fact a luxury only rich societies can really indulge in.

The reservoir of rage now filled to overflowing will burst it's dam. I would not want to be a highly visible minority when that day arrives.

This is the question everyone's asking... When will the tide turn? It almost seems countries like Sweden are beyond saving at this point... but history has taken sudden sharp turns before. If sensible action isn't taken now, down the road a bit things could get very, very ugly for the Diverse very quickly.

M.G. said...

Nate Higgers--

It is revolting. Quote from link:

PARIS (AP) — French citizens will contribute an extra 1.60 euros ($1.67) on their property insurance policies to help finance a fund for victims of the extremist attacks that have recently hit the country. The measure comes into force on Sunday and requires policy holders to contribute 5.90 euros instead of 4.30 euros. ... More than 200 people have died in France in attacks over the last 20 months.

In this piece I tried to mostly avoid (1) terrorism, (2) refugees, and (3) illegal aliens, in order to focus on regular old long-term legal diversity and its discontents. Were one to do a piece on the 'diversity tax' associated with these three categories, the figures would be really shocking... perhaps a post for another day! Thanks for your link.

Wow, quite the compendium -- will forward the link to others (especially those not yet members of the 'choir', in the hope that...) -- many thanks for the work that went into it.

Ivan .M said...

This was lengthy, but edifying. Thank you for all the research and time you put in.

President Donald Trump, along with high-profile supporters like Bill Pulte, have big plans for urban renewal in the habitats of our American Diverse. It doesn't seem likely that providing good jobs and rebuilding inner cities will eliminate or even substantially reduce current crime levels. Today's Afros are possibly more inclined toward mayhem than prior generations due to decades of intense dysgenic fertility.

Maybe it could work if Trump vigorously pushes his "law and order" platform plank by incarcerating the unsalvageable elements in greater proportions and for longer sentences than ever before (unfortunately, of course, sterilization incentives remain beyond the pale for polite society.)

It's either that or reimpose monogamy and the nuclear family: also heretical.

Excellent research as always.
The problem is, the people who promote diversity know this. The people who promote diversity are m/billionaires. The aim is to create majority-minority countries. That's a term already being used and it is inevitable within a few decades. The European population will be reduced to a minority and, parish-type communities will be created (by stealth) to prevent Europeans huddling together. The aim is to eradicate the power of 'almost reflexive honesty', free thinking, independent minds, objectivity, commonweal. All the things Europeans created. The end point will be a small elite of lawyers, bankers, media (broadcasting, advertising, entertainment). And a one-class citizenship - like Cuba but a higher standard of living (consumer goods, tech products, restaurants and bars). Liberals who really believe that social policies and investment will westernise, or Europeanise, immigrant groups have been conned and serve well to disguise what is happening. Heck, this blog could part of the plan - to distract clever Europeans into thinking liberals can be educated. I don't think it is, but it could be. Professors are now talking about Brits learning a bit of Urdu to help integration. And pro-immigrationists are starting to say things like 'there's always been income disparity, so what? life is better than ever before'. This is the future.

Brilliant article, I will try to circulate it among some friends and acquaintances. Still, I find 2 significant omissions, and I am sure some readers could make further suggestions. I would suggest these two things are added, somehow.
(1) Immigration is the death of democracy and its replacement by *ethnomathematics*. Our highest principle of political organization is gone. Forever. As Lee Kwan Yew said "In multiracial societies, you don’t vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion". Instead, you get "kingmaker minorities" that decisively sway elections: the 93% of Arabs who voted for François Hollande gave him an election that would otherwise have been won by Sarkozy. We should popularize the term ethnomathematics, invented by French Africa expert Bernard Lugan.
(2) All the hassle we experience every time we get on a plane (having to arrive earlier and thus losing precious time, the queues, the x-ray machines, the patting... and sometimes the terrorist attacks) is a time-and-wellbeing tax we have to pay for the presence of Muslims, who are the only ones to ever stage terrorist attacks on planes (with very occasional help from the left).

I could very well identify with the "white flight"-will-ruin-you point. I live in Brussels now but I know I will have to move to expensive Luxemburg in order to avoid having my (future) kids "help" the children of hostile, parasitical people I did not want to be here in the first place (as if we owed them anything at all). Also, I was physically attacked a year and a half ago by vibrant youth who clearly were followers of the religion of peace (6-to-1 attack).

helena said...

"We should popularize the term ethnomathematics"

Labels and memes worth popularising should be self-explanatory so that they can be understood by people who are new to rethinking the status quo.

"Immigration is the death of democracy" might be more comprehensible and thought-provoking?

I'm listening to a radio debate at the moment about Trump's Wall. The debate is shaped as Security vs Humanitarianism. It's time Humanitarians are challenged. There are many options for humanitarian policies that could be pursued but 'open borders' is a con.

Jimster Jones said...

Great post- thanks for your time and effort. The U.S. in 2017 is like living in an Orwell book; everybody realizes on some level that diversity is, well, divisive, but nobody is permitted to say that. I see examples of "crimestop" (from 1984) every day in normal conversations.

Ivan M.--

Nice to see you here.

Today's Afros are possibly more inclined toward mayhem than prior generations due to decades of intense dysgenic fertility.

This is really the meat of the problem. I don't think any Afro population on Earth has been subjected to a more intense dysgenic experiment than ours since the 1960s 'Great Society.' It's hard to believe Moynihan wrote this in 1965:

'Indices of dollars of income, standards of living, and years of education deceive.… The funda­mental problem…is that of family structure. The evidence…is that the Negro family in the urban ghettos is crumbling. A middle-class group has managed to save itself, but for vast numbers of the unskilled, poorly educated, city working class the fabric of conventional social relationships has all but disinte­grated.… So long as this situation persists, the cycle of poverty and disadvantage will continue to repeat itself.'

I agree that any truly effective counter-measure would be highly unpalatable to our legislators. Promoting birth control aggressively--even via 'no welfare after two kids', which has been tried successfully--coupled with our hard-core prison sentencing seems to be the only hope.

M.G. said...

helena--

Thanks for your comment, I agree with it all except this:

Heck, this blog could part of the plan - to distract clever Europeans into thinking liberals can be educated.

LOL, but we can! I myself am one of those 'hard-wired leftists,' and yet even I was able to have my eyes opened--largely thanks the patient explanations of those blogs on the sidebar.

If you've studied the Soviet example, you've seen that indoctrination really works (especially for those whose natural disposition it flatters)--until one day it just doesn't. I never like to predict the future, but if there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that an 'Emperor's New Clothes' moment is coming. And a lot of brainwashed leftists will have an ugly and emotional reckoning with the fact that they've been duped. It will be a society-wide phenomenon, and things will change faster than any of us could've thought possible.

M.G. said...

Anon 2:56--

Good points both.

(1) I'm as big a Lugan fan as there is, and I agree that his 'ethno-mathematics' is very useful. He does tend to use it more in the African context, where the game is truly zero-sum--if your tribe wins, you get ALL the spoils, and my tribe might go without clean water for the next four years. But it's coming to the West in a big way. (For Anon's example of the French election, see this graph.) It especially needs to sink into the heads of clueless Republicans in the U.S. who seem to think the colored masses are all 'natural conservatives.'

(2) I intentionally left out terrorists, both for length, and because I see Islamic terrorism as more of a flash-in-the-pan, something that will (forgive the expression) go out of fashion in the near future. It's not necessarily a long-term / permanent feature of Diversity. Though I cannot deny your point that the costs it imposes on us are ridiculously high. Here in France the price tag must be through the roof--since the latest attacks, we've got soldiers in every train station, armed guards in front of synagogues (!), even the university in my far-away provincial town now has burly dudes in front of every building. That the French (and Americans) just accept all this as 'the cost of Diversity' will no doubt be puzzled over by future generations.

SteelPalm said...

Fantastic post, sir.

I'm a first-generation immigrant myself (Russian Jew) and agree with every word here. America was founded by white Christians, preferably of English descent, and flourishes when they are the heavy majority (85+%) of the population.

It falters when they sink down to their current levels. (The white population of the US is now 61%, but that includes a number of first-generation immigrants and non-Christians alike)

And thanks for pointing out that incongruity of Asians in the US, which so many, even white nationalists, overlook. Look, I went to a private math and science high school that was about 80% Asian, and have a bunch of Asian friends.

However, in large numbers they are fundamentally incompatible with US society, for all the reasons you enumerated and several others. Anyone who ignores this reality because they do well academically is only fooling himself.

Solstice Blues said...

I think something else that could be added to the 'diversity tax' of the high-functioning, in relation to cheating, is the rise in academic fraud in research and publications which seems to track the rise in foreign (esp. Indian and Chinese) entry into academic research positions- students, scientists, professors.

The cost of research fraud is not only millions (billions?) that have been wasted directly in taxpayer money, but also a multiplicative effect that such misconduct can create- a "new finding" that causes other researchers to dovetail their research efforts into studies building off that research, and years later, when it's discovered to be nonsense, many more research dollars have been wasted, and a number of researchers have now wasted years going down the wrong path that could have been spent on valuable research.

In medical research, fraud can lead to wasting money and resources in trying to validate findings that don't stand up to scrutiny, as well as to product and pharmaceutical recalls, deaths, etc.

And there could even be a 'broken windows' kind of phenomena that follows from academic misconduct, that it encourages other researchers to cheat if their colleagues are getting away with it and getting promotions, raises, and accolades.

"LOL, but we can! I myself am one of those 'hard-wired leftists,' and yet even I was able to have my eyes opened--largely thanks to the patient explanations of those blogs on the sidebar."

Sure, me too. Back in the 80s, I Rocked Against Racism, Freed Nelson Mandela, Reclaimed the Night, and was Proud to be Gay (until finally forced to admit I really wasn't!). [Perhaps my greatest sin was increasing the limit for abortion. My mother told me last week that a friend's granddaughter gave birth to a wanted baby at 23.5 weeks. Sadly, the child did not survive. The woman was allowed neither a birth certificate nor a death certificate. The State simply did not acknowledge that the child had existed.]

The difference between me and today's 20-30-year-olds is that I had a sound Grammar School education, and a degree in Human Biology, to fall back on. I also had the funds to spend time researching the internet until I found hbd*chick, TWCS, Peter Frost, The Unz Review.


Maybe this is cheeky but...Now that your research on ethnicity is well documented, and considering the resistance to these ideas, is it time to focus on traits and goals (in the abstract as it were) and how they operate in society - objectivity, independent thinking, honesty, public space, public office, common goods, construction vs. deconstruction. ? Two UK examples, which could be analysed in this way - the legal fraud over Iraq Historic Allegations, the furore over the role of the Speaker of the House of Commons.
