William Bradford Shockley (1910-89) on “Eugenics & Race”, #1


A British-born American genius and scientist, on par with Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, Shockley had a position on RACE, similar to that of Benjamin Franklin, and should be acclaimed as such and be included in every school’s and college’s historical curriculum.

We read the following from the Internet website:


William Shockley was born in London, England [to American parents], on 13th February, 1910, the son of William Hillman Shockley, a mining engineer born in Massachusetts and his wife, Mary (née Bradford) who had also been engaged in mining, being a deputy mineral surveyor in Nevada.

The family returned to the United States in 1913 and William Jr. was educated in California, taking his B.Sc. degree at the California Institute of Technology in 1932. He studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology under Professor J.C. Slater and obtained his Ph.D. in 1936, submitting a thesis on the energy band structure of sodium chloride. The same year he joined Bell Telephone Laboratories, working in the group headed by Dr. C.J. Davisson and remained there (with brief absences for war service, etc.) until 1955. He resigned his post of Director of the Transistor Physics Department to become Director of the Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory of Beckman Instruments, Inc., at Mountain View, California, for research development and production of new transistor and other semiconductor devices. In 1963 he was named first Alexander M. Poniatoff Professor of Engineering Science at Stanford University, where he will act as professor-at-large in engineering and applied sciences.

During World War II he was Research Director of the Anti-submarine Warfare Operations Research Group and he afterwards served as Expert Consultant in the office of the Secretary for War.

He held two visiting lectureships: in 1946 at Princeton University, and in 1954 at the California Institute of Technology. For one year (1954-1955) he was Deputy Director and Research Director of the Weapons System Evaluation Group in the Defence Department.

Shockley’s research has been centred on energy bands in solids; order and disorder in alloys; theory of vacuum tubes; self-diffusion of copper; theories of dislocations and grain boundaries; experiment and theory on ferromagnetic domains; experiments on photoelectrons in silver chloride; various topics in transistor physics and operations research on the statistics of salary and individual productivity in research laboratories.

His work has been rewarded with many honours. He received the Medal for Merit in 1946, for his work with the War Department; the Morris Leibmann Memorial Prize of the Institute of Radio Engineers in 1952; the following year, the Oliver E. Buckley Solid State Physics Prize of the American Physical Society, and a year later the Cyrus B. Comstock Award of the National Academy of Sciences. The crowning honour – the Nobel Prize for Physics – was bestowed on him in 1956, jointly with his two former colleagues at the Bell Telephone Laboratories, John Bardeen and Walter H. Brattain.

In 1963 he was selected as recipient of the Holley Medal of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Dr. Shockley has been a member of the Scientific Advisory Panel of the U.S. Army since 1951 and he has served on the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board since 1958. In 1962 he was appointed to the President’s Scientific Advisory Committee. He has received honorary science doctorates from the University of Pennsylvania, Rutgers University and Gustavus Adolphus Colleges (Minn.).

In addition to numerous articles in scientific and technical journals, Shockley has written Electrons and Holes in Semiconductors (1950) and has edited Imperfections of Nearly Perfect Crystals (1952). He has taken out more than 50 U.S. patents for his inventions.

Dr. Shockley has been married twice, and has three children by his first marriage to Jean (née Bailey). This union ended in divorce; his second wife is Emmy Lanning.

In a book entitled Shockley On Eugenics And Race (The Application of Science to the Solution of Human Problems), written by Roger Pearson, on p. 31 it states:

Armed with a penetrating scientific mind and an efficient control of statistical method, it seemed patently obvious to Shockley that eugenic measures were necessary to reverse what threatened to be a catastrophic decline in intelligence in Western countries. At the same time Shockley had concluded that it was necessary to adopt dramatic means to bring this subject to the attention of the public. In order to provoke scientists into examining the dysgenic [i.e., pertaining to or causing further degeneration to an already mean, ignoble, inferior race ...] threat and advancing plans to counter it, he consequently outlined his ‘thinking exercise’ – a simple, practical and totally voluntary eugenic scheme whereby the government might offer financial rewards to low IQ individuals who voluntarily agreed to participate in a eugenics program. This has been referred to by some as Shockley’s ‘$1,000 Bonus Proposal.’ Even though he only advanced it as a ‘Thinking Exercise,’ intended to draw attention to the problem and to stimulate scientists, politicians and intelligent members of the public to perceive the dysgenic threat in real terms, it was nevertheless extremely logical in its simplicity.

Since intelligence was predominantly genetic, and society was presently suffering from severe dysgenic trends which would render modern science worthless if allowed to continue, a simple and humane solution was needed. With his ability to reduce the most complex problems to simple terms, Shockley’s ‘thinking exercise’ proffered a humane and morally acceptable solution – which was also economically sound. Rather than continue to bear the everincreasing cost in social welfare expenses required to support the growing multitude of low-IQ children being born to low-IQ fathers and mothers on inter-generational welfare – a cost which was mounting generation by generation as the low IQ members of society multiplied – Shockley demonstrated that it would be cheaper for the state to pay a bonus of $1,000 per IQ point below 100 to every low IQ individual who volunteered to be sterilized. His actual proposal was published as a press release on May 3, 1974, under the title ‘Eugenic, Or Anti-Dysgenic, Thinking Exercises,’ reproduced here [in this book] as ‘Document 13’.

There was nothing inhumane about the solution Shockley asked people to think about. Participation would be wholly voluntary, and the proposal had, and still has, undoubted anti-dysgenic merit. In addition, it made sound financial sense, since the outlay involved would result in vast reductions in subsequent social welfare spending and remove what is threatening to become an unbearable burden on the economy ....”



In Franklin’s Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind, Peopling of Countries, etc., part #24 as found at: http://www.ditext.com/franklin/observations.html he stated:

24. Which leads me to add one Remark: That the Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth. I could wish their Numbers were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, Scouring our Planet, by clearing America of Woods, and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of Inhabitants in Mars or Venus, why should we in the Sight of Superior Beings, darken its People? why increase the Sons of Africa, by Planting them in America, where we have so fair an Opportunity, by excluding all Blacks and Tawnys, of increasing the lovely White and Red? But perhaps I am partial to the Complexion of my Country, for such Kind of Partiality is natural to Mankind.”

We must take note that where Franklin writes, “And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion ...”, the Spaniards, Italians, French and Russians are well known for having swarthy complexioned people of mixed race. However, Sweden had their share of swarthy complexioned people also. The 1894, 9th ed. of the Ency. Britannica, vol. XXII, p. 774 states: “Sweden is divided into three chief parts the southern being called Götaland, the middle part Svealand or Sweden proper, and the northern, Norrland. The north and northwest parts Norrland are called Lapland.” The 1951 World Scope Ency., vol. VI, under the topic “Lapland”, says in part: “The Lapps are classed as Turanians, belong to the Finnic branch. They are small in stature, have a flat nose, high cheek bones, and a scanty beard. Most of these people are muscular and have red hair ....” This description surely represents a people of mixed race! I would surmise a mixture of mongolian and Scandinavian. So Franklin is not out of order in his appraisal.

And when Franklin stated: “... in America, where we have so fair an Opportunity, by excluding all Blacks and Tawnys [i.e., yellows and browns], of increasing the lovely White and Red?” Here by mentioning: “... the lovely White and Red ...”, Franklin simply meant beautiful White people with rosy cheeks!

It is quite obvious here that both William Bradford Shockley and Benjamin Franklin had the same desire for ridding America of all negroes, while Franklin wanted to rid America of all nonwhites. By comparing William Bradford Shockley’s racial position with that of Benjamin Franklin’s, this series of papers becomes a critical review of their mutual positions on the subject.



The reasons why Franklin’s and Shockley’s warnings went unheeded are many; it would take volumes to cover them all. We White-Caucasian-European-Americans and related people, in Biblical times were known as the twelve tribes of Israel. These twelve tribes were given a commission at Deut. 20:16:

16 But of the cities of these people, which Yahweh thy Elohim doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: 17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as Yahweh thy Elohim hath commanded thee: 18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against Yahweh your Elohim.”

These people whom we were to entirely exterminate, hate us, and we have been at war with them for approximately 7,500 years (See Gen. 3:15). A more complete list is found at Psa. 83:1-18:

1 Keep not thou silence, O Elohim: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O Elohim. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. 9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: 10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. 11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: 12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of Elohim in possession. 13 O my Elohim, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. 14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; 15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. 16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Yahweh. 17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Yahweh, art the most high over all the earth.”

These very words are being fulfilled during our period of time when news commentators brag that “the White Race is becoming a minority” over TV, radio and manifold publications! They’re as much as saying: “... Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation ...” i.e., all the White Israelite nations of the world (not to be confused with the swarthy converso-Edomite-jews falsely calling themselves “Israelis” (see Josephus’ Antiquities, bk. 13, ch. 9, par. 1))!


All of this can be found in many passages, but at Joshua 23:11-16, it is especially clear:

11 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love Yahweh your Elohim. 12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: 13 Know for a certainty that Yahweh your Elohim will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which Yahweh your Elohim hath given you. 14 And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which Yahweh your Elohim spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof. 15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which Yahweh your Elohim promised you; so shall Yahweh bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which Yahweh your Elohim hath given you.”

At this point, it is quite clear, our people are obsessed with miscegenation (i.e., race-mixing), to the extent that it would cause our founding forefathers to blush, so we are being punished by the Almighty, and collectively our prayers are not being heard! That is why no mortal man will solve our problems! Benjamin Franklin did his best to guide us in the right direction of keeping our RACE pure, but more prophecy was yet to be fulfilled after his time. As for William Bradford Shockley, he had a great scientific mind, but his scheme on sterilization would never have worked because of the low morals of our present-day women, a higher number of them would, in turn, be jumping in bed with the nonwhites more often, because they wouldn’t have to worry about getting pregnant by a sterilized negro. Sterilize the negro women, the same goes for the White men! Besides that, Shockley’s proposed compensation to the low IQ negro was quite complicated and would have varied from $1,000 to $45,000 depending on how low the IQ of the negro was, and I’m sure the potential negro candidate would put on a display of ignorance to get the highest amount possible.


There is coming a time when all of the twelve tribes of Israel will become aware of their racial standing, and be ashamed of all of their misdeeds and unfaithfulness to their Husband, Yahweh. At the same time that Yahweh reveals to Israel her true racial Identity, He’ll also show the heathen nonwhite, and children of miscegenation their final fate. This prophesied event is recorded at Ezekiel 39:22-25:

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am Yahweh their Elohim from that day and forward. 23 And the heathen1471 shall know3045 that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword. 24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them. 25 Therefore thus saith Yahweh Elohim; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name ....”

Matthew Poole, in his 3-volume Commentary, vol. 2, p. 783, states on verse 22:

The sottish [i.e., stupefied] heathen thought meanly of the God of Israel, and reckoned they came into captivity because the people of some greater god had by the power of their god prevailed against Israel’s God and his people; but by this overthrow given to Gog, they shall see it was not impotence in Israel’s God, but iniquity in Israel’s people, that brought them into captivity. Trespassed; committed sin perversely, continually, and with a high hand. Hid my face; withdrew my favour, would no more regard them, and then it was soon a night of trouble to them. Into the hand, into the power, of their enemies, which could not have hurt Israel if Israel had not first forsaken his God, but then God forsook them. When God withdrew his defence, as defenceless they fell under the sword of the enemy; for it is he that subdueth enemies and giveth victory.”

Joel at 2:11-13 states: 11 And Yahweh shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of Yahweh is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? 12 Therefore also now, saith Yahweh, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto Yahweh your Elohim: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.” Christ, our only hope!
