First, they came for the white cis-gendered hetero-normative males…but I wasn’t male. You can imagine the rest of the verses.
I am white, though; not just any white — fish belly white. If that’s a problem for anyone, please go dig up my Welsh, Irish, and Scottish ancestors and have a word with them. Better still, dig up my African ancestors from 50,000 years ago who departed the continent on foot heading north, and ask them why.
I bet their sifted remains will tell you that they were always up for adventure, took greater risks than more settled individuals, maybe even that they had an insatiable curiosity about what was over the next ridge. For some of us, that urge to risk it all for greater knowledge and understanding never goes away. Perhaps that’s how the Pythagoreans (in Italy) came to give us modern math; the Greeks logic; Germans the printing press; and thus onto the Enlightenment.
Anyway, white skin in northern people is a genetic modulation designed to allow for greater production of Vitamin D in locales where available sunshine is limited by the tilt of the earth. Because Vitamin D strengthens the immune system, in areas of low winter light, lighter-toned skin enhanced survival.
But wait, recent research sheds more light on skin pigmentation. UPenn’s article in Nature is explained in clear terms in Big Think . Turns out the near precursors to humans may have had light-to-white skin, covered with dense hair. As hair receded from the species, pigmentation increased. This too is believed to be a survival-enhancing response to the sun.
So, geographically we all started out as African. In terms of pigment, we may have all started out as white. Medically, as we age, the melanocytes (pigment-bearing cells) in our skin decrease in number, and we become paler. Good Lord, in another few years I’ll look like a wrinkled-up Casper the Friendly Ghost.
No aspect of ourselves should be held up for ridicule, denigration, or belittling. There’s no shame in being how we are made in the womb. As Jessica Rabbit said, “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.”

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
