Jared Taylor to Address French Nationalists in Paris

Henry Wolff, American Renaissance, March 9, 2012

Nationality-Citizenship-Identity expects an audience of 1,000.

On Saturday, March 10, Jared Taylor will be speaking at a conference in Paris called “France in Danger.” It is sponsored by a group called Nationality-Citizenship-Identity (NCI), which expects an audience of approximately 1,000. Here is some of the advance publicity given by NCI to appearances by Mr. Taylor and by Filip Dewinter of the Vlaams Belang.

NCI has three primary objectives, which are outlined on its website as follows:

1) To oppose the granting of the right to vote to all foreigners who are not citizens of a country that is part of the European Union.

2) To inform our fellow citizens who want to return to the true meaning of “French nationality,” and to give them an opportunity to meet each other.

3) To propose a complete recasting of the law of French citizenship so as to adapt it to our evolving world.

Mr. Taylor will speak in French, but what follows is an English-language summary of his remarks.


The American Cult of Diversity

By Jared Taylor

It is now obligatory for every politician, journalist, and academic in America to praise diversity—diversity of religion, language, culture, and race. The most common way to do this is to say, “Diversity is our strength,” or even to say, “Diversity is America’s greatest strength.”

Not surprisingly, President Obama says this frequently, but in 2007 even General George Casey, who was in command of all American troops in Iraq, announced, “I firmly believe the strength of our Army comes from our diversity.”

The cult of diversity is now so deeply implanted in American public discourse, that to point out the disadvantages of diversity is almost like attacking the Church in the Middle Ages. In America we do not have laws like the Loi Gayssot or the Loi Pleve [that criminalize certain kinds of speech], but to criticize diversity—or any of the groups or cultures that make America more diverse—can be career suicide.

Questioning diversity is the new form of heresy.

If diversity is a wonderful thing, Americans would seek it voluntarily. They do not. Whatever they may say about it publicly, they do not want diversity in their personal lives.

For many years it was common to establish racially exclusive residential neighborhoods, but that practice was declared illegal in 1948. However, Americans now voluntarily segregate. A recent study by the Lewis Mumford Center for Comparative Urban and Regional Research, for example, has found that in New York and Chicago, black/white housing patterns have not changed since the 1920s. Brian Stults of the University of Florida has found that blacks with high incomes move into up-scale black neighborhoods rather than into white neighborhoods. He found that rising black income has “no effect” on housing integration.

The same is true of church attendance. Ninety-five percent of American church congregations are at least 80 percent one race or ethnic group. In many congregations the figure is 100 percent.

Schools in the United States were legally segregated until 1954, and from the 1960s through the 1990s, there was a long and painful effort to integrate schools by requiring students to attend particular schools for the express purpose of ethnic mixing. At the time, according to what was called “contact theory,” children of different races would learn to appreciate each other if they met at an early age.

This was a failure. White students left the public schools by the millions. Many attended private schools, and many moved with their families to areas where there were few minorities. The attempt to integrate schools by force therefore increased residential segregation. Today, in America’s large cities, many public schools are now almost exclusively black and Hispanic. For the school year 2006-2007, the white percentage was the following in these major urban districts: Atlanta—9.0 percent; Los Angeles—8.8 percent; Miami—8.5; Houston, Texas—8.3 percent; Baltimore—7.7 percent; Chicago—7.3 percent; Washington, DC—5.7 percent; Dallas—5.0 percent; San Antonio, Texas—3.0 percent; Detroit—2.4 percent.

Whites who are able to escape school “diversity” have done so.

Most blacks and Hispanics cannot afford to attend private schools, and they do not find that the “diversity” in their schools is a strength. Southern California schools, especially, have large numbers of black and Hispanic students, and highs schools are often shut down because of race riots. In some schools, police constantly patrol the hallways. Students enter schools through metal detectors to make sure they are not carrying weapons. They take “diversity” courses to encourage blacks and Hispanics to appreciate each other, and attend sessions in “conflict resolution” that are supposed to lead to peaceful solutions. Schools have posters on walls that say “Black and Brown = Peace.” None of this solves the problem.

In Michigan, where there are many Arab students, so there is fighting between blacks and Arabs. In Texas, there is fighting between Hispanics and American Indians. In Minnesota, where there are many Somali refugees, there is even fighting between Somali students and American blacks. “Diversity” is not a source of strength in American schools.

In prisons, the consequences are even worse. Federal law forbids segregation of prisoners by race, so there are serious prison race riots. In 2006 there was a four-hour black/Hispanic riot in a Los Angeles prison, in which one man was killed and 20 inmates were so badly injured they had to be hospitalized. Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca broke the law and temporarily segregated the prisoners. “Human life is more important than appearance,” he explained. One Hispanic prisoner was quoted as asking, “Please separate us race by race for everyone’s safety.”

For ten years, Asian prisoners in Los Angeles jails were kept in segregated dormitories because Mexican prisoners had a policy of attacking them on sight. When the segregation policy was ended in 2004, Asian prisoners set fire to their cells in protest. “It’s like feeding us to the sharks,” said one.

The state of California continued to practice limited segregation of prisoners until 2005, when the Supreme Court banned this practice. The state very slowly integrated prisons, but inmates protested by refusing to eat or leave their cells. “This is like using us like lab rats, to see if it works,” said black inmate Glenn Brooks. “All it’s going to do is get somebody hurt, get somebody killed.”

In August 2009 at the state prison in Chino, about 40 miles east of Los Angeles, attempts at integration led to an 11-hour black/Hispanic riot in which 250 men were injured and 55 had to be hospitalized. Inmates burned down six of the eight 200-man dormitories. Prisoners were resegregated after the riot.

In 2009, a black/white race riot at a prison near Danville, Kentucky resulted in fires that destroyed six buildings and left 700 prisoners without housing.

Everyone who is involved with prisons—guards, prisoners, prison managers—want segregation, but because the official policy of the United States is that diversity is a strength, prisoners must mix by race, and face violence and possible murder.

In Southern California there are neighborhoods where blacks and Hispanics systematically attack and kill each other. In June 2008, Sheriff Lee Baca wrote this in the Los Angeles Times:

We have a serious interracial violence problem in this county involving blacks and
Latinos . . . . Latino gang members shoot blacks not because they’re members of a rival gang but because of their skin color. . . . Some of L.A.’s [Los Angeles’s] so-called gangs are really no more than loose-knit bands of blacks or Latinos roaming the streets looking for people of the other color to shoot.

In May 2009, federal officials charged 147 members of a Hispanic gang based in the Southern California city of Hawaiian Gardens with driving blacks out of the city through violence. US Prosecuting Attorney Thomas P. O’Brien called this “the largest gang takedown in United States history,” but the case received very little public attention. The media do not like to report news that contradicts the official view that diversity is a strength.

The United States has tried very hard to produce equality for all groups in America through discrimination in favor of blacks and Hispanics, equal spending on schools, food stamps, and free housing for the poor. Still, the profiles of different groups are radically different.

For example, in 2008, the illegitimacy rates in the United States were as follows:

White Black Hispanic American Indian Asian
29% 72% 53% 66% 17%

In many European countries, illegitimacy rates are high—the figure was 50 percent for France in 2007—but many European children are born to stable couples. In the United States, most illegitimate children are born to single mothers, and live in very difficult circumstances.

Academic performance varies greatly by group. By the fourth grade, the average black or Hispanic student is performing at a level two years behind the average white or Asian student. By the 12th grade—the end of the high school—the average black or Hispanic is the equivalent of four years behind the average white or Asian. This is the same all across the United States, whether in integrated or heavily segregated schools.

Blacks are seven times more likely than whites to be in prison and Hispanics are twice as likely. This is not because of discrimination in the justice system. Every year, the Department of Justice conducts the National Crime Victimization Survey, in which victims of crime are asked the race of the person who robbed or attacked them. It is clear that police arrest blacks and Hispanics only because they commit more crimes. Asians are only one third as likely to be in American prisons because they are the group least likely to commit crimes.

There are group differences in disease rates. The United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that in 2006, black men were six times more likely than white men to have HIV/AIDS, and Hispanics were 2.2 times more likely. Black women were 18 times more likely than white women to be infected, and Hispanic women were 4.2 times more likely. The CDC also finds that blacks have gonorrhea rates 19 times higher and syphilis rates that are seven times higher than non-blacks.

Because different groups have different social profiles, and because of residential segregation, different parts of the United States can be so different that they almost seem to be different countries. Hispanics buy very few books, so there is not a single book store in the entire city of heavily Hispanic Miami. El Cenizo is a Texas town with so many Hispanic residents that city business is conducted exclusively in Spanish. Oakland, California, used to have a world-class symphony orchestra but the city became heavily black, and the orchestra was disbanded.

The city of Detroit used to be an industrial center—it was the headquarters of the automobile industry—but whites fled the city after race riots. It is now 82 percent black, and is bankrupt. Many downtown skyscrapers are empty and abandoned. Large parts of the city have been abandoned, and no longer offer electricity, gas service, or mail delivery.

Race riot in Detroit, June 23, 1967.

Camden, New Jersey, was also a great industrial city until the 1950s. In 1971 there were race riots and whites fled. It sank into chaos, mismanagement, and corruption. Three mayors—all black—went to jail. In 2002 the state took over management of the city, but this has done little good. It still has the highest rates of homelessness, unemployment, and school dropout in America. Every year, it is ranked as either the most violent or the second-most violent city in America. Churches hire police guards to prevent armed robbers from stealing the offering during worship services. Camden can no longer afford its own police force and is the only city in the state that has officially asked the surrounding county to provide police service.

Diversity is not a strength for any country. Tatu Vanhanen of the University of Tampere, Finland, has studied the effects of cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity in 148 countries. He has found that diversity has a positive correlation in the 0.5 to 0.9 range with internal conflict and violence. This is why homogeneous countries like Japan and Iceland show very low levels of conflict, while highly diverse countries like Lebanon and Sudan are wracked with strife.

France is already on its way to becoming a “diverse” country like the United States. Also, because of its laws against free speech, it is also becoming very difficult to speak and write truthfully about the costs of diversity.

I am an American, but I have lived in France, studied in France, and have a deep affection and respect for France and its people. It is absolutely essential that France—for its own sake and for the sake of the world—remain French. It France becomes “diverse” it will cease to be French. Vive la France!

    Whites, Orientals, and people from India get along well. We compete in the class room and on the job. We do not fight in the streets. The other racial groups attack us and fight each other. 

    • mikejones91

      I am with you on that. I work in an area that is 87% black and I stand outside and wave to cars lol; college job haha. I stand in front of an Asian restaurant and anytime I go in there the woman who owns it with her husbands strikes up a conversation with me. She also gives me a free can of soda with my order lol. She has grown used to the ignorance/aggression/lack of mutual respect she encounters on a daily basis with the blacks in town. There is barely any other Asians in town so the encounters she has with me, the clean cut/polite white guy are most likely a very nice change of pace . 

  • I too pray for his safe travels and return.  Because when I become President, he’s my Secretary of State.  If he’s not around, I’m going to have a Tim Wise of a time trying to find someone else.

  • Pauldrimmer

    Jared focused exclusively on race, but Islam is the great schism in Europe. In the UK mixed race kids are the fastest growing part of the pop. The UK simply lacks the space for real separation. Money leads to suburbia, but the inner cities are a bewildering melting pot. The welfare whites stay put & interbreed. Its all financed by the state, God knows what would happen if the govt. Checks bounced! Diversity=unfolding chaos.

  • JohnEngelman


    I am sorry about your bad experiences. I have always had good experiences with east Indians, just as I have always had good experiences with Orientals.  Then again, I have always treated them with courtesy and respect. Frequently how we behave toward others influences how they behave toward us.

    • MissBonnie123

      “Frequently how we behave toward others influences how they behave toward us.”

      I have behaved respectfully towards nonwhites of all ethnicities and races and I can honestly say that many times it does not matter. If they have racial grievances against Whites, they will express them towards us. They know they can get away with it.

      This is why I am very quiet around nonwhites, and I tend to be more talkative around Whites. I feel more comfortable with my own kind(unless they are extreme left wingers).

      • JohnEngelman

        I cannot say that I have never had any problems with blacks, because I have been robbed at gun point once and mugged several times by black youths. Nevertheless, I like every black person I know, and that black person likes me. One of them probably saved my life during one attack at the risk of her own life.
        I have never had any problems with other racial groups, not even Hispanics. 
        I am aware that my circumstances are unique to me, just as yours are unique to you. I respect your different feelings toward non whites, and am sorry you have not had better experiences. 

        • JohnEngelman

          What is your bottom line opinion about what the white race should do to enhance their  chances for survival and prosperity?        
          – georgeoo
          The different races have been merging since at least the beginning of the Age of Discovery. The process is accelerating. I do not believe it can be reversed. What I do believe is that the future does not belong to any one race. It belongs to individuals with high IQs. I predict that several thousand years from now there will be one race on this planet with a higher average IQ.  
          Those of every race who perform well in the class room and on the job are likely to have descendants living in that future. The story of human evolution has been the story of the evolution toward higher intelligence. 

        • silviosilver

          This isn’t the first time Jone Engelman has spewed his brain-diseased BS on here.  Yes, John, we get it: you like non-whites. That’s great, champ.  Only, some people are interested in long-term racial survival.  Long-term racial survival can’t be secured unless it can first be discussed.  Discussing it is made difficult, don’t you think, by constantly changing the subject to how potentially wonderful indians and asians are? 

          • A Girl

            Why is it so important to preserve the ‘White race?’ As far as i can see there is no danger. I always wondered whether people who lament over the decline of the ‘white race’ think about the decline of the ‘Black race’. It’s quite hard to find a black american that doesn’t have some European blood, added either during slavery or after. The affects insofar as skin color goes doesn’t usually show, and with all the different colors of ‘black’ assumptions about ancestry are aften wrong. It seems as if y’all are getting worked up over nothing.

    • mikejones91

      I am respectful towards blacks. I hold doors for them in stores, yet rarely get thanked. They are socialized to “rise above” in this “presumably” “racist” America. Nothing will ever change.

      • JohnEngelman

        When I give money to a white pan handler he thanks me. When I give money to a black pan handler he frequently tells me it is not enough.

    – Jared Taylor          
    I think the main problem here is de industrialization. The U.S. economy no longer generates jobs that pay lower middle class incomes for those of average and below average intelligence.
    In his book, “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960 – 2010,” Charles Murray documents that social pathology is also increasing among the white working class. 
    When there are fewer rewards for morally responsible behavior there is less of it.

    • silviosilver

      I think John Engelman deserves to be run off the board.  There are any number of stations playing his standard anti-white BS; his presence here is wholly unnecessary.

      Interestingly, he seems totally unmoved by the unfolding disaster that the diversity delusion is proving to be for non-whites, too.  If you’re wondering what sort of sicko judge could push together people who so obviously want nothing more than to be apart just ponder this Engelman specimen, whose every excretion only serves to prove how fanatically resistant to reason and evidence a human can be.

    • A Girl

      ‘When there are fewer rewards for morally responsible behavior there is less of it.’ Reminds me of Lord of the Flies.

  • British Activism

    “Mr Taylor will speak in French”….  Very good Mr Taylor, I am sure the French people will appreciate somebody who has the ability (or intent!) to speak their native language. It must be quite something to be able to speak to a room of people in a foreign country and also do it in another tongue! 

    Being a stereotypical Briton, I am not fluent in any other language – unless you call Lancashire dialect it’s own language! It is good to see Jared ‘on tour’. I am not sure how relevant the nuances of American race problems are to the French, but no doubt there will be enough similarities – and the overall message is going to be valid to most, if not all, white societies. 

    Jared tends to mean “Orientals” in his piece above, but in the United Kingdom, Asians refer to the Asian subcontinent, like Pakistan, India, Bangladesh. I do not know which classification for Asian is valid in France though. Hopefully, for the sake of making the general points of what the situation is, it will not matter either way.

  • JohnEngelman

    “You are acting very suspiciously,” sounds like, “Those are dangerous thoughts, Herr Engelman.” 

    Orientals and Jews do not need for excuses to be made for them.

    • Alexandra1973

      While I personally have nothing against Orientals or Jews, why can’t Whites have our own nation?  Why is it Whitey has to share with everyone, but everyone else gets their very own sandbox?

      • JohnEngelman

        Half the Ashkenazic Jews in the world live in the United States. Do you have a problem with that? 
        The Ashkenazim and Orientals have high average IQs. They perform and behave well. 
        From the beginning the United States has been a multi racial, multi ethnic country. 
        Different racial and ethnic groups are not of equal value. Jews and Orientals earn their positions at the best American universities, with the best American corporations, and in the most prestigious professions. 
        When Jared Taylor talks about the costs of diversity he talks about problems caused by third world peoples, not Jews and Orientals. 

        • Alexandra1973

          So you don’t care about having a homogeneous country, is that it?  You want Orientals in here because of high intelligence?  So what do we do with low-IQ Whites?

          Why can’t we have an all-White country?

          • A Girl

            ‘Why can’t we have an all-White country?’ Because at the moment the some of the richest countries in the world happen to have a white majority. I’m sure if Chinese was easier to learn and China had fewer people and became democratic more immigrants would go there. I’m sure some Chinese would eventually ask why they can’t have an all-Chinese country. Do they have to become hosts to millions of Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Filipinos etc. Do these immigrants have to bring crime along with their drag on the chineses GDP? They probably won’t bother to consider the only asians likely to immigrate there would either be rich enough to do it legally or poor and desperate enough to do it illegally. Then i’m sure other non-Asian races would try to go there. China, the promise land! Cue rice-patty fields. Then those same chinese would want to band together with the asian immigrants and profuse this great country is only for Asians. Then they would ask why they can’t have an all-Asian country.

            Any rich country is going to have immigration, because people are always looking for a better way of life. It has nothing to do with some deep-seeded desire to eradicate the ‘white race’ or ‘asian race’.

        • JohnEngelman

          So you don’t care about having a homogeneous country, is that it?  You want Orientals in here because of high intelligence?  So what do we do with low-IQ Whites?
          Why can’t we have an all-White country?
          – Alexandra1973
          People with low IQs do not have much of a future. There is little point in pretending otherwise. The best thing we can do is to discourage them from having children.   
          We cannot have an all white country because most whites, including me, do not want to deport the non whites, and because they will not submit to deportation.  I would like to deport illegal immigrants. Even that is politically difficult. 
          There are areas where race realists can be politically successful. If they try to deport non whites who are here legally, or if they try to reduce them to second class citizenship, they lose credibility on issues where they can win.  
          The March 2-4, 2007, USA Today/Gallup Poll updated a question asked several times last year that measured Americans’ preferences for the handling of illegal immigrants already in the country:http://www.gallup.com/poll/26875/public-still-supports-path-citizenship-illegal-immigrants.aspx       Which comes closest to your view about what government policy should be toward illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States? Should the government — [ROTATED: deport all illegal immigrants back to their home country, allow illegal immigrants to remain in the United States in order to work, but only for a limited amount of time, or allow illegal immigrants to remain in the United States and become U.S. citizens, but only if they meet certain requirements over a period of time]?Given these three options, the majority of Americans, 59%, support the government allowing illegal immigrants to remain in this country and eventually become U.S. citizens if they meet certain requirements.   

        • Energizer2112

          The 59% of Americans who said “yes” to granting conditional amnesty would not have voted yes if they knew that granting amnesty of any kind to 20,000,000 illegals would mean granting an additional 20,000,000 visas to their relatives because of the US’s family reunification policy. Numbers that large would increase the numbers of visas issued yearly to multi-millions to accommodate the needs of those given amnesty and to relieve pressure on the massive backlog that would follow such a huge amnesty. the average American doesn’t know anything about immigration policy.

          Engelman: “From the beginning the United States has been a multi racial, multi ethnic country.”

          John Jay, first chieft justice, U. S. Supreme Court, who was there at “the beginning,” saw the situation differently:

          “Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people — a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.”*

          *John Jay, Federalist No. 2: “Concerning Dangers From Foreign Force and Influence” For The Independent Journal)

  • D.H. Andrews

    I can’t add much to what has been said here but so say that prisons, neighborhood and churches are the best indicators that Whites, left to their own choices, make them consciously in spite of what the government tells them what is best for them.
    I have a couple of twenty-something nieces who, being thoroughly brainwashed by our public school system, still vote Republican. On the other hand, they think it was a “good thing” that we’ve come far enough to elect a Black president. When I bring up(or make jokes about) Obama and his colossal failure as a president, they don’t have an answer and quickly change the subject.

    I’ve tried with these girls to bring them around, but they have been so brainwashed by the public school system(if you consider charter schools the REAL public school system), that they, not having had many Black experiences, just don’t get it. I’ve quit trying. They’re going to have to learn by the school of hard knocks, as I have.
    I’ve found it almost universally true that Whites who have had the fewest experiences with Blacks, tend to have the most liberal and “tolerant” views about them. They, like the guilt-ridden flocks of Whites who put Obango into office, just haven’t had enough real world experiences with them to make them racially awake. Witness states like Minnesota, Wisconsin, NOT Michigan (they HAVE; Detroit is a constant reminder) and practically all of New England. Can we notice a pattern here? States like Washington and Oregon similarly – having low Black populations – have equally liberal attitudes. Until the threat of Black – and now Hispanic – populations threaten their way of life, they assume the rest of America has a similar crime-free situation.

    Simply put, unless a White population is forced to integrate with Blacks and Browns, they don’t seem to have a clue.

    I lived in New Orleans for 8 and one half years. I can’t tell you the number of Northern Whites I talked to who, until after their having lived in N.O. for as little as 6 months, just couldn’t “understand” why the Whites in N.O. were so prejudiced. Then – after a crash course in Black culture- they admitted, they understood. Most times, it takes having liberal’s face rubbed in it do they understand.     

  • Enoch_Power

    Taylor is entirely correct to assert that different racial groups have a high propensity to mix within their own group.  Hence diversity does not become a “strength” but the source of conflict and violence.

    Here in Britain the liberal elite have created a multicultural disaster.  We have huge problems with Diversity knife crime, gang rapes and shootings.  We also see Muslim paedophile gangs raping, pimping and drugging underage white girls.  All of these issues are hushed up by the controlled media.  It is outrageous. 

  • Right-wing men are more sexy because we don’t seek to suppress human nature. We know how imperfectly naughty human beings are, and seek to keep our natures in check with tradition and culture.  

    We treat women as sexual beings, instead of as unsexed, androgynous creatures the left wants you to treat women as.   Female sexuality is holy and sacred, and we want you to have our baby.

    We see the consequences of a relationship more clearly, namely children, so a women who is with a right-wing man will have less power over the man.  Because in the end, the man has to want to make babies with you, and support your children.  

    We recognize the consequences and dangers of sex, so we will flirt more, without actually wanting sex – meaning more flirting.

    If you are serious about marriage and children, you will date in a more intense, serious way.  If you believe divorce is morally wrong, then you may even date more women before settling down.

    I see liberal men in “friendship” style relationships all the time with women.

    Conservative men are so aware of sexuality and human nature, that they have a harder time when dating of “just being friends” with girls.  

    We treat young women like they should be treated, as “sex objects”.    Sacred sex objects. And they like that.   There is nothing more attractive to a young women than a man who treats her how she wants to be treated – as a dangerous, but holy sexual being.    

    Conservative men are awake, and ready to impregnate a respectful female, raise your kids as a good father, and defend you and the homeland at all costs.    ;     

    Conservative is sexy.  

  • Alexandra1973

    Goes to show that diversity is divisive, doesn’t it?

  • Energizer2112

    It is too easy, but the question is why your suggestion has not crossed my mind. Thanks for bringing that up.
