Human Biodiversity Group

Steve Sailer is the president of the invitation-only Human BioDiversity Group (HBD group). The mission of HBD is, "The Human Biodiversity Institute promotes the study of biological differences among humans and their impact on society. Major areas of interest include race, sex, and sexual orientation." So what is the Human BioDiversity group in reality?

The Human BioDiversity Group is a right-wing eugenics think tank where people with the mindsets of Steve Sailer can discuss and promote academic racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and eugenics policies. They frequently base their pseudo-scientific theories on bigoted, right-wing sources like VDare, academic faculty members who were reprimanded or disciplined by their school for unscientific and bigoted research, and biased media mongrels who judge others and perpetuate media stereotypes.

Members are primarily based in the following categories, and can belong in multiple categories.

  1. Academic Racists: Racists who write in intellectual, scientific terminology to spread their agenda that the non-white races are genetically inferior (e.g. Philippe Rushton, Charles Murray, Edward Miller, Louis Andrews, Chris Brand, Kevin MacDonald)
  2. Academic Homophobes: Gay bashers who write in intellectual, scientific terminology to spread their agenda that non-heterosexuals (homosexuals, bi-sexuals, transgenders, effeminate males, masculine females) are genetic garbage (e.g. Gregory Cochran, Michael Bailey, John Derbyshire, Ray Blanchard)
  3. Media Mongrels: Annoying journalists and media workers who over exaggerate to help perpetuate racial stereotypes, and serve as media outlets to help the scientific racists spread their message (e.g. Jon Entine, Kathryn Jean Lopez)
  4. White Separists: Flat-out racists who want to see anyone who's not white kicked out of America (e.g. Peter Brimelow, Ron Unz)

We need your help in tracking down these members of HBD. We know a good number of the new converts likely comes from the Gene Expression website (, the VDare website (, and the ParaPundit blog ( If you have any more information on the Human Biodiversity Group, please send us an email.

Update: We have found evidence of the active and frequent posters of HBD:
Chris Brand, Gregory Cochran, John Derbyshire, Jon Entine, Henry Harpending, Ken Hirsch, Ralph Holloway, Arthur Hu, Carol Iannone, Frank Miele, Edward Miller, Charles Murray, Philipe Rushton, Steve Sailer, Vince Sarich, Frank Forman (aka 'Premise Checker'), Paul Gross, 'La Griffe du Lion'.

There are more heinous and racist members not listed above. They may not post as frequently, but they keep in touch with Sailer, just as Sailer references them in his writings, to spread their agenda of bigotry and intolerance.

Also, not every member listed is an active member of HBD. This list was from 1999 when HBD started, so some people listed below may have left, whether voluntarily or involuntarily after battling with Steve Sailer and fighting his scientific racism.
