A Warning From the Past
American Renaissance
Lothrop Stoddard and
The Rising Tide of Color
.
by James P. Lubinskas
M
odern liberals like to praiseW.E.B. Du Bois for predict-ing that race would be the de-fining issue of the 20th century. But an-other man, writing at the same time, alsomade that prediction. Lothrop Stoddard(1883-1950) is not as well rememberedas Du Bois and his name is usuallypaired with words like “racist” and“white supremacist,” but perhaps a bet-ter word would be prophet. His majorwork,
The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy
, was written in1920 at a time when whites had colo-nized and ruled most of the world.Stoddard warned that supremacy wasabout to end and that whites had betterprepare for the consequences.Although he published 14 otherbooks,
The Rising Tide of Color 
remainshis best known work. Published byCharles Scribner’s Sons, it was not anobscure right-wing manifesto but amainstream sensation by a Harvard-edu-cated scholar. In it Stoddard pointed outthat the number of non-whites was grow-ing rapidly and that some, especiallyAsians, were mastering Western technol-ogy. Increasing numbers of non-whiteswere threatening white colonies in someareas but, most importantly, they threat-ened even traditional white homelands.How skillful and united whites were inhandling the rising tide would in largepart determine the future of their race.
The Asian Threat
The Rising Tide of Color 
begins witha description of the various non-whitepopulations of the earth. Although hisclassifications are sometimes crude,Stoddard makes sharp distinctions be-tween different races of non-whites. Inhis view, East Asians living in the “yel-low man’s land” were the greatest threatto whites. He classified north Asians–as well the west Asians of the “brownman’s world”–as high races with histo-ries of accomplishment that deserve re-spect. Indeed, he wrote that for a thou-sand years the East put constant pres-sure on the West and at one time threat-ened to conquer all of Europe. By thetime of Charlemagne, the “white man’sworld” had shrunk to only the lands westof the Elbe River. Charlemagne pushedthe invaders out but whites never fullyreconquered the lands that had once beentheirs–a failure in which Stoddard sawmuch significance:“. . . [W]est-central Asia, which in thedawn of history was predominantlywhite man’s country, is today raciallybrown man’s land in which white bloodsurvives only as vestigial traces of van-ishing significance. If this portion of Asia, the former seat of mighty whiteempires and possibly the very homelandof the white race itself, should have soentirely changed its ethnic character,what assurance can the most impressivepolitical panorama give us that thepresent world order may not swiftly andutterly pass away?”Of all the threats to the West, Stod-dard believed the Japanese were the mostserious. He quotes early British envoyswho described Japanese as “highly in-telligent children” who could quicklyacquire Western techniques. In theRusso-Japanese War of 1904-5 these“highly intelligent children,” shockedthe world by becoming the first non-white nation in modern times to defeata white nation. Since white hegemonywas maintained not by love but by re-spect and fear, Russia’s defeat by Japanwas, in Stoddard’s view, “a body blowto white ascendancy.”Japanese writers and government of-ficials were not shy about drawing con-clusions from their victory, and soonbegan turning western ideas of su-premacy on their heads. At the outbreak of the First World War, Japanese writerYone Noguchi wrote that the conflictmeant the ruin of whites. “It means thesaddest downfall of the so-called west-ern civilization; our belief that it wasbuilded upon higher and sounder foot-ing than ours was at once knocked downand killed; we are sorry that we some-how overestimated its happy possibilityand were deceived and cheated by itssuperficial glory.”Stoddard quotes a Japanese imperi-alist pronouncement written in 1916:“As for America–that fatuous boobywith much money and much sentiment,but no cohesion, no brains of govern-ment . . . . Well did my friend speak theother day when he called her people a
Lothrop Stoddard
“Future generationshave a right to demandof us that they shall beborn white in a whiteman’s land.”

 Letters from Readers
Sir – Your readers may want to knowabout developments subsequent to thedisruption of the Galton Institute con-ference that I wrote about in the previ-ous issue. In the past, papers deliveredat conferences have always been pub-lished, and over the years many distin-guished scientists have contributed thekeynote Galton Lecture. This yearArthur Jensen’s talk was to be honoredwith this designation, but he was unableto speak because of the disruption.Shortly after the conference, thespeakers got a short note from the insti-tute saying that because of the unpleas-antness in September the directors werereviewing their publication policy. Theletter also noted that someone–who mayor may not have been one of the row-dies who broke up the conference–wasseen photographing the home of one of the directors. Sure enough, the speakersnext received a letter that reads as fol-lows:“At the November meeting of TheGalton Institute Council it was decidedthat in view of the events of September17th, 1999 it would not be possible topublish the usual proceedings of Con-ference.“Council regrets any inconveniencethis may cause.”This has been yet another sad capitu-lation in the face of intimidation.Glayde Whitney, Tallahassee, Fla.Sir – The Galton Report for Decem-ber adds one more link to a virtuallyunbroken chain of thuggery on the partof leftist radicals who all too often suc-ceed in disrupting any public gatheringof conservatives. The script is played outagain and again: The speaker is shouteddown, a frightened audience disperses,and the rabble-rousers rack up anothervictory as local police stand idle.The sympathetic bystander has towonder why the speaker’s staff doesn’tdeploy its own security people at strate-gic points, with orders to eject trouble-makers from the premises, much as judges post bailiffs during controversialtrials. If the host for the event won’tagree to this reasonable strategy, find avenue that will. This would seem tomake more sense than continually toconcede the contest to a claque of spoiled brats.O.M. Ostlund, State College, Pa.Sir – Michael Masters is an excellentpolitical analyst who really gets to theheart of the matter on race and politics.He is dead-on when he writes, “politicsis war by other means-especially intoday’s multicultural America.” Unfor-tunately, none of the third parties reallyrepresents the interests of white Ame-rica, and most are composed of crack-pots and losers. One immediately thinksof Ross Perot, and John Hagelin of the“Natural Law” party. Some, such as theLibertarians, have solid organizationsand some good ideas but they have ablind spot on race and rarely get morethan one percent of the vote. The samegoes for Howard Phillips and the Con-stitution party.Since the GOP is hopeless, we are leftwith Pat Buchanan. There is much toadmire about Mr. Buchanan. He seemsto be the only original thinker amongthe candidates and actually dares to takeon the establishment on foreign policyand immigration. His syndicated columnis often about race and he is not afraidto debate liberals. It’s unfortunate he isnow meeting with Al Sharpton andLenora Fulani. Both are anti-whitedemagogues and the less he has to dowith them the better. The fact that MissFulani is on his staff is not encouraging.While I suppose most AR readers willvote for Mr. Buchanan, we should real-ize he is hardly the savior of our peoplebut only the best of a bad lot.Greg Helton, Charlottesville, Va.Sir – I’m sure by now many readershave heard that the black ex-Marxist,Lenora Fulani, is now Patrick Buchan-an’s campaign co-chairman. I wasshocked and disgusted when I first heardthis, but on reflection I have changed mymind. What Mr. Buchanan needs to doright now is win the nomination of theReform Party, and whatever one maythink of Miss Fulani, she apparently canhelp deliver the goods. Remember, poli-tics is the art of the possible.If Mr. Buchanan wins the nominationand gets his hands on that $13 million, Ibelieve he could change the nature of the campaign. He would demand a placeat the candidate debates and it would behard for the other nominees to turn himdown. Mr. Buchanan is a charming andimpassioned debater who could make hisopponents look like the stuffed shirtsthey obviously are. And by showinghimself to be the sincere, committedpatriot that he is, he would certainlymake people think twice about all therecent charges against him. “This manis no Nazi,” I can hear people saying.“It’s the ones who say he is that can’t betrusted.” By then, Miss Fulani might bewell in the background–after all, herposition as campaign co-chairman isunpaid and essentially symbolic.These are difficult times. It’s all verywell to criticize from the sidelines, buttotal purity is a luxury no politician canafford. Remember, Mr. Buchanan is the
only
candidate who wants to slash im-migration. He doesn’t have to change histune on immigration just because he haslunch with Al Sharpton. And whoknows, maybe Rev. Sharpton and MissFulani don’t want the country to goMexican either. This (temporary?) alli-ance may turn out to have been a bril-liant move. Pat Buchanan is still myman.Fred Hooper, Mussel Shoals, Ala.

race of thieves with the hearts of rab-bits. . . .“North America alone will support abillion people; that billion will be Japa-nese with their slaves. Not arid Asia, norworn-out Europe (which, with its pecu-liar and quaint relics and customs shouldin the interests of history and culture,be in any case preserved), nor yet tropi-cal Africa is fit for our people. But NorthAmerica, that continent so succulentlygreen, fresh, and unsullied–except forthe few chattering mongrel Yankees–should have been ours by right of dis-covery; it shall be ours by the higher,nobler right of conquest.”A Burmese journal called
 Buddhism
,wrote that the “yellow peril” was noth-ing more than an expression of Darwin-ian superiority. “The West has justified–perhaps with some reason–every aggres-sion on weaker races by the doctrine of Survival of the Fittest; on the ground thatit is best for future humanity that theunfit should be eliminated and give placeto the most able race. That doctrine ap-plies equally well to any possiblestruggle between Aryan and Mongo-lian–whichever survives, should it evercome to a struggle between the two forworld mastery, will, on their own doc-trine, be the one most fit to do so, and if the survivor be the Mongolian, then isthe Mongolian no ‘peril’ to humanity,but the better part of it.”Although it was partially controlledby Japan, China also was a threat to theWest. With one fourth of the world’spopulation, an armed China would posean even greater challenge than Japan.Stoddard reported that in 1905 Chineseschool children were taught to chant thefollowing lines: “I pray that the frontiersof my country become hard as bronze;that it surpass Europe and America; thatit subjugate Japan; that its land and seaarmies cover themselves with resplen-dent glory; that over the whole earth floatthe Dragon Standard; that the universalmastery of the empire extend andprogress. May our empire, like a sleep-ing tiger suddenly awakened, springroaring into the arena of combats.” Therewas good reasons to take note of theAsians.
Brown Men
According to Stoddard, the brownman’s land was the Near and MiddleEast and stretched into northern Africa.Racially it was a jumble, includingwithin its boundaries such groups aslargely-white Persians and Turks,largely-black Yemenite Arabs, and Hi-malayan and Central Asian yellows.With the exception of India, he saw Is-lam as the great unifying force of thisworld. In 1920, the brown man’s worldwas completely controlled by whites, butthis did not guarantee permanent whitecontrol in the face of rising brown soli-darity fueled by what Stoddard called“the Mohammedan Revival.”Ironically, this revival was aided byWestern technology. Newspapers al-lowed Muslims to communicate witheach other across their vast world. ASyrian Christian, Ameen Rihani, char-acterized that world in a May 1912 ar-ticle in
Forum
magazine: “A nation of 250,000,000 souls, more than one-half under Christian rule, struggling to shakeoff its fetters. . . . [A] nation with a glo-rious past, a living faith and language,an inspired Book, an undying hope,might be divided against itself by Euro-pean diplomacy but can never be subju-gated by European arms. . . . What Is-lam is losing on the borders of Europe itis gaining in Africa and Central Asiathrough its modern propaganda, whichis conducted according to Christianmethods. . . . Europe drills the Moslemto be a soldier who will ultimately turnhis weapons against her. . . .”Though Islam was a growing force,Stoddard did not think the brown threatcomparable to the yellow peril. WhileJapanese talked openly of racial superi-ority and conquering white lands, thebrown revolt against white rule wasmainly defensive, showing few signs of expansion. Stoddard saw the brown manas having enough room for his growingpopulation and thought any allianceamong the browns would break up afterwhite rule ended. He expected internalwarfare among the browns to be con-stant, and thought a yellow-brown alli-ance unlikely. Stoddard’s main concernwas that resurgent Islam might affectanother sphere of white political control:black Africa.
The Dark Continent
Sub-Saharan Africa was the world of the black man. Four-fifths of the world’s150,000,000 black people lived in Af-rica in 1920, with the rest scattered inthe New World. Africans had sufferedfrom a history of isolation: “Cut off fromthe Mediterranean by the desert whichhe had no means of crossing, andbounded elsewhere by oceans which hehad no skill in navigating, the black manvegetated in savage obscurity, his habi-tat being well named the ‘Dark Conti-nent.’ ” In stark language, Stoddard de-scribed blacks as never having devel-oped a civilization and having no his-
