Principles of the Pro-White Movement
By • 7/7/08
A revolution requires a declaration of principles.
[What follows is an attempt to summarize and synthesize my writings for The Inverted World and to formulate a working manifesto for the pro-white movement. I consider this statement a draft to be updated yearly as our conception of the pro-white project changes. I look forward to your suggestions for improvements.]
The state of the white race in the West confronts us with a horror unprecedented in the annals of human history. Demographers predict whites will be a minority in the United States in 40 years and in Western Europe shortly after. Since the West condones interracial breeding, there is a serious prospect that the white race as we know it will disappear in the next two or three centuries.
An even more urgent threat is that whites will lose political control over their ancestral homelands and be put at the mercy of alien races who are unfriendly to our people.
Because culture is rooted in biology, the subjugation or extinction of the white race may well mean the death of Western culture and its fundamental ideals of individualism, pluralism, tolerance, and the rule of law. If the white West is not preserved, it is quite possible that what we today call the Third World will become the whole world, and the light of humanity and progress will be extinguished.
This prospect, while fearsome enough, does not express the full horror of our plight. What gives the situation of whites its uniquely dreadful and grotesque cast is that it is taboo for us to voice any desire for our continued existence. Our current cultural establishment labels “racism” and “hatred” any word of complaint that whites may breathe about their impending subjugation and obliteration. These labels are a slander wicked almost beyond imagining. Indeed, the hatred is on the side of the people who express indifference towards or even eagerness for the destruction of a people.
The pro-white movement is committed to the preservation of the white race and its unique culture. Pro-whites, as the movement’s adherents call themselves, frankly admit that they prefer their own people to others and see no evil in doing so. Pro-whites resemble the Jewish activists who attempted to awake a callous and bigoted world to the prospect of the Holocaust during the Nazi period or Spartans trying to preserve their society from Persian rule.
In furtherance of our goal of racial preservation, the pro-white movement will spread awareness of the threats to the white race and the reasons for preserving it. We will seek to overcome the slanders against our race and our movement that have made it disreputable for whites to defend themselves against extinction. Finally, we will do all in our power to restore to America a government that respects the white race and promotes its interests.
Why Preserve White Societies?
White societies are worth preserving not merely because of the inherent value of ethnic autonomy, but also because of the precious uniqueness of Western culture, which only whites have succeeded in creating.
Scholars have found that Western culture is distinguished by preference for the rule of law, individualism, pluralism, and tolerance. Also, whites have a uniquely powerful urge to discover the objective truth about the world. This urge has led the West far more than other cultures to defend the individual exercise of reason from suppression by state and ecclesiastical authorities. Additionally, the Western taste for the truth has created a culture uniquely capable of self-criticism and innovation in science, technology, philosophy, and the arts.
Without the white race, it is quite likely that people would still be living pre-modern despotisms like the ancient Persian or Chinese empires, since more or less all of the technological, scientific, philosophical, and political innovations that led to modernity were accomplished by whites.
Cultural differences among the races are almost certainly in part due to biological differences. Psychologists have found that the black-white IQ gap, the most intensively studied racial difference, is certainly genetic in origin. It is the consensus among behavior geneticists that personality traits are about 50 percent heritable, so it stands to reason that other racial differences have some biological basis as well.
The influx of non-whites into America erodes our culture. Unintelligent and improvident populations like blacks and Hispanics, through high rates of crime and other forms of social irresponsibility, threaten a peaceful, prosperous society. Not only do these populations act as a drag on the white population, but they tend to corrupt our nation by lowering standards. Indeed, the current mortgage crisis and concomitant stock market collapse are in part due to minority activism to lower home lending standards.
Irresponsible populations have other negative effects on America’s economy. They mean higher taxes for welfare and prisons and a strained social infrastructure. The influx of poorly achieving and crime-prone Hispanics into the schools has caused white flight into an ever-shrinking number of decent school districts. Consequently, housing prices in good neighborhoods soar, and whites go deep into debt in order to provide a future for their children.
Furthermore, non-white groups are a threat to the culture of freedom that white societies have established. Non-whites do not seem to possess the broad-minded tolerance of free expression that is fundamental to Western culture.
Finally, the research of Harvard professor Robert Putnam has demonstrated that diversity destroys trust. In an empirical study of communities, Putnam concluded:
people living in ethnically diverse settings appear to ‘hunker down,’ that is, to pull in like a turtle… [They tend 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, to register to vote less, to agitate for social reform more but have less faith they can actually make a difference, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television.
As commentator Ilana Mercer put it, “Greater diversity equals more misery.”
The inherent value of racial autonomy, the preciousness of Western civilization, the distrust and misery bred by racial diversity, and its negative economic impact—together these form a compelling justification for preserving white societies.
Despite the fact that whites invented the critique of ethnocentrism, contemporary common wisdom has it that whites are the only “racist” race and that all other peoples are noble savages who have been cruelly exploited by us. The pro-white movement dubs the bias against the white race “leukophobia,” or fear and loathing of whites. The counterpart of leukophobia is “chromophilia,” or unwarranted idealization of non-whites.
Leukophobia causes our society not only to exaggerate examples of white egotism and destructiveness, but actually to fabricate white racism hoaxes. Leukophobia is an accepted, mainstream racial hatred, so pervasive that it seems like common sense. Leukophobia has so far been successful in discrediting anyone who has tried to preserve and defend the white race.
Leukophobia creates an inverted world in which the blame for racism falls on the race that has done most—indeed, far too much—to end it. Whites invented the concept of human rights in the name of which the oppression of ethnicities can be criticized. Whites were the first to abolish slavery. American whites have even gone to the extreme of making non-whites a privileged class through affirmative action in order to bring out about racial equality.
The Inverted World has discussed several examples of leukophobia and chromophilia. For example, American history textbooks, in the words of Diane Ravitch, display “a barely concealed rage against people of European ancestry.” The textbooks lay heavy emphasis on slavery, racial subjugation, and war crimes perpetrated by whites, while ignoring or whitewashing similar, or worse, practices perpetrated by other peoples. The myth that Americans frequently committed atrocities against Asians during the Vietnam War is another example of anti-white bias in our understanding of history.
Leukophobia even causes the news media to fabricate instances of white racial hatred. The Duke rape and Jena 6 cases are recent examples.
Leukophobia takes its most blatant form among non-whites, large minorities or even majorities of whom fantasize that whites are conspiring to undermine them. The beliefs of Jeremiah Wright are not marginal among blacks. One quarter of blacks think that whites invented AIDS as a means of racial genocide, and 50 percent think that the CIA and FBI have flooded black neighborhoods with guns and drugs so that they will harm one another. Mexican-Americans share similar beliefs about whites.
Even as the shapers of opinion exaggerate and even fabricate instances white racial hatred, examples of non-white racial hatred are ignored. Thus, when whites are even suspected of committing crimes of racial hatred, as in the Duke rape and Jena 6 cases, there is massive press coverage. But proven crimes of racial hatred committed by minorities receive little coverage.
Similarly, the shapers of public opinion suppress awareness of non-white misbehavior, or even more despicably, blame it on whites. Such is the purpose of the myth of racial profiling, which illegitimately pins the blame for high non-white incarceration rates on white police officers and judges.
The Causes of Leukophobia
Leukophobia has many different causes. Among them are minority egotism, which makes whites a scapegoat for minorities’ social dysfunction, and the horrific forms that white ethnocentrism has taken in the past, such as the Hitler regime, American slavery, the Klan, and the neo-Nazis.
Carrying on the dismal tradition of American white supremacism, most pro-whites today believe our current racial dispossession is due to Jewish influence on the West, if not actual Jewish conspiracies against whites. However, these tired lies conceal the real dynamics of white dispossession, which has been inflicted by white Gentiles on themselves. While it is true that Jews have been inclined towards highly liberal—that is, leukophobic—beliefs, nevertheless more than 90 percent of white racial liberals are Gentiles. Moreover, that Jewish leukophobia could thrive in America suggests that it was a mere extension of something in our national character. For these reasons, the pro-white movement repudiates anti-Semitism and will resolutely oppose the obsession with Jews that poisons and discredits our cause.
The primary reason for the ascendancy of leukophobia is diversity snobbery. Various currents in 19th and 20th century thought made tolerance and openness to diversity the virtues that we most esteem. This attitude is particularly prevalent among the wealthy and powerful in America. Leukophobia originated with intellectuals in the early 20th century, spread to college students in the 1960s and to the professional class in the 1970s, and dominates all of the American elite today. While tolerance and openness are great virtues, they turn into vices when taken to destructive extremes.
Diversity snobbery is rooted in the aspiration to show oneself more tolerant and open than others. Diversity snobs slander today’s white majority or the “racist” America of the past so that their own superior virtues can shine more brightly by comparison.
A particularly obnoxious example of the slanders to which diversity snobbery gives rise is the elites’ assertion that America’s immigration reform movement is rooted in “ugliness” and “hatred,” to use the New York Times’ terms or “bitterness,” to use Barack Obama’s. The white working and middle class support the immigration reform movement because they are on the front lines of the demographic transition currently taking place in America. It is they who are suffering from the importation of unintelligent, crime-prone populations into the US. It is they who have to send their children to school with aspiring gangsters. All that the immigration reformers are asking for is enforcement of our current immigration laws. It is monstrous to describe the white majority’s concern for its way of life as “hatred.”
Another manifestation of diversity snobbery is the completely unfounded belief that greater racial diversity leads to greater creativity. In fact, the relatively homogeneous and white racialist culture of early 20th century America produced an explosion of creativity that dwarfs the achievements of the post-Civil Rights era. Think of the extraordinary transformation that took place in America between the end of the 19th century—the age of horse-drawn carts, vaudeville, and typhoid epidemics—and 1950, the age of Pan Am, CBS, and penicillin. All of this was accomplished by us white-bread Americans without any help or other enrichment from Somalis, Guatemalans, or Koreans. It is unlikely that the diverse America of the future will be able to match our ancestors’ record of achievement.
Discrimination and Segregation
The term “civil rights” as it is currently used in America is an Orwellian abomination that actually designates a restriction of rights. The right to racial discrimination, including segregation in housing and schools, is founded on the principle of free association, a right that is normally respected and protected by the law. The pro-white movement supports the extension of this principle to all associations.
In many contexts, it is perfectly legal for Americans to form racially exclusive associations, and there are tens of thousands of them: the National Association of Black Journalists, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, the National Association of Asian-American Professionals are examples.
If racially exclusive professional groups are legal, there is no reason why racially exclusive neighborhoods should not be. If we can have the National Association of Black Journalists, why is it illegal for a group of white neighbors form an association that declares their neighborhood will be all white? Why is it illegal for white parents to decide to establish a racially exclusive school? There is no foundation in the Constitution for such inconsistencies in laws governing associations, nor can moral arguments justify depriving Americans of a fundamental right.
Consider what would happen if a judge told the National Association of Black Journalists that it could no longer exist because it excludes people on the basis of race. Imagine the outcry! The group’s members would regard this as a tyrannical violation of their rights. Pro-whites think the same of all anti-discrimination laws.
Goals of the Pro-White Movement
The pro-white movement will attempt to preserve the white race in America through lawful activism. The following will be our primary goals and activities:
- Improving our movement’s image: The pro-white movement should stand in the public mind for all that is best in the Western tradition, not what is worst. We should make ourselves the representatives of the humane and civilized ideals of the West, not its undeniable history of oppression and atrocities. The public should associate pro-whites with Galileo, John Locke, and Thomas Edison, not with Hitler and the Klan.
- Lobbying for accurate portrayals of white history and culture: The ugly stereotypes that attach to the pro-white movement are only an extreme version of the ones that tarnish the image of the white race as a whole. We want the world to see whites not as the only “racist” race but as the torchbearers of compassion and accomplishment.
- Lobbying for the dissemination of accurate information on race: Journalists, academics, and other molders of public opinion should be honest about racial differences and diversity’s true effects on America. They should also stop slandering whites in order to bolster the leukophobic myth.
- Restoring Americans’ right to free association: People have a natural right to form racially exclusive associations, just as Hispanic nurses and black journalists do. To this end, we support the restoration of Americans’ right to racial discrimination in living arrangements and other aspects of life. If whites want to form racially segregated neighborhoods and schools, it is their right to do so.
- Ending mass immigration: America should stop importing non-white peoples who erode the Western values on which this nation was founded.
- An end to minority preferences: Preferences for minorities in education and hiring discriminate against the race that founded and built America. Affirmative action also places power in the hands of people who are alien to our white culture and way of life. Minority preferences should be ended.
A Shocking Self-Respect
The pro-white viewpoint may seem shockingly radical. However, we ask you to read our words carefully and consider our ideas seriously. Are these the ravings of madmen, or reasonable conclusions from plausible premises? If our viewpoint is shocking, it is not because we are unreasonable, but because our society is. We ask the white race to show some self-respect, but whites are so used to thinking of themselves as the world’s only racist race that they have forgotten what self-respect is.
Ask yourself whether diversity has really been as enriching as you were told it would be. Hasn’t it rather meant the insecurity and loneliness of alien neighborhoods, shocking insults directed against your culture by minority demagogues, the increasingly crippling expense of living in a decent school district, and a gnawing suspicion that the world has gone wrong?
White men and women, remember that you are the heirs of the race that brought man out of the darkness of despotism and ignorance into the light of freedom and knowledge. See the hosts of your ancestors beseeching you not to let their hard-won civilization perish. Tremble before the prospect of your descendants under alien rule and of a world without blond hair. Join our cause and declare to the world that the white race will not go quietly into the night!
