Feb 20, 2024 ~ Ace of Spades: '"Male and Pale Is Stale:" Writers Sound Off on Writers Guild's Rules Aimed at Keeping White Writers From Getting Any Further Work' "White writers who are now unemployable -- and other Hollywood professionals similarly now without work due to the New Racism -- have written to Film Threat. Anonymously, of course. If these emails are connected to anyone's public identity, they would literally never work again." "These correspondences paint a picture of an industry where fear of speaking out could result in one being "blacklisted" as problematic. You must adhere to this new ideology or face the prospect of unemployment forever. A phrase we heard over and over again is this: "male and pale is stale." If one were to reword this statement another way, it may result in accusations of racism. But this view is widely accepted all over Hollywood. Like a mantra, "male and pale is stale" is driving the types of films and TV shows that get made." "now, white guys are lucky to account for even 20% of a room. If that." Jan 14, 2024 ~ John Sexton, 'NY Times: SATs Aren't Racist and Universities Should Use Them' SAT "scores were better than high school grades at predicting student success in the system’s nine colleges, where more than 230,000 undergraduates are enrolled. The relative advantage of test scores has grown over time, the committee found. 'Test scores have vastly more predictive power than is commonly understood in the popular debate,' said John Friedman, an economics professor at Brown and one of the authors of the Ivy Plus admissions study." The real reason so many universities have ditched the test is to allow them to discriminate on race and avoid revealing how much they are doing so. But now they no longer have the ability to find the best students even within demographics, making their diplomas even more worthless and untrustworthy than they have been. Jan 4, 2024 ~ Claudine Gay has resigned as president of Harvard after even more examples of plagiarism were uncovered (now near 50). Gay was under previous pressure to resign after refusing to say it violated Harvard's code of conduct to call for the genocide of Jews. Even though she survived longer than she would have under these circumstances had she been anything other than a black woman, the #FakeNews and all of the usual race hustlers popped up to gaslight us about her firing being due to 'racism.' 'Racist mobs' bla bla 'white supremacists' bla bla 'fascists' bla bla 'racism' bla bla 'anti-Blackness' bla bla 'Jim Crow' bla bla 'subjugated by whiteness' bla bla 'white supremacy and racists' bla bla 'bad faith bigots.' etc. Gay herself said the criticism was "fueled by racial animus." Literally the same thing happened to a white woman (Liz Magill) who did not even have the plagiarism issue, but when it happens to a black woman, it's 'racism.' Its obvious to everyone that any results or behavior must be accepted from black people or the left will cry 'racism.' I.e. racism is now defined as holding black people to the same standards as every other group of people.
Jan 4, 2024 ~ Flashback Oct 2022: Chris Brunet: “I can’t stress enough how much of a tragedy a Claudine Gay presidency would be — this must not be allowed to come to pass. She will ruin Harvard. She’s an intellectual lightweight (her entire body of critical race theory ‘research’ is flawed and/or fake), a far-far-Left DEI activist, and corrupt as hell.” H/T @MattWalshBlog
Dec 24, 2023 ~ Black Columbia professor John McWhorter says Harvard President Claudine Gay should resign: "It has always been inconvenient that Harvard’s first Black president has only published 11 academic articles in her career and not one book (other than one with three co-editors). Some of her predecessors, like Lawrence Bacow, Drew Gilpin Faust and Lawrence Summers, have had vastly more voluminous academic records. The discrepancy gives the appearance that Dr. Gay was not chosen because of her academic or scholarly qualifications, which Harvard is thought to prize, but rather because of her race... If the issue were a couple of hastily quoted phrases in one article, it would be one thing. But investigations have shown that this problem runs through about half of Dr. Gay’s articles, as well as her dissertation. We must ask how a university president can expect to hold her head high, carry authority and inspire respect as a leader on a campus where students suffer grave consequences for doing even a fraction of what Dr. Gay has done."
Dec 16, 2023 ~ Harvard President Claudine Gay is the definition of a black DIE diversity hire. She did the same thing Liz Magill of Penn did (refused to say calls for genocide against Jews is harassment) plus multiple instances of plagiarism. Magill who is white loses her job but Gay keeps hers because black people are held to a lower standard. Compare her also to former Harvard President Larry Summers. Summers, a white economist with no plagiarism lost his job for suggesting there might be brain differences between men and women. Summers published six books and well over 100 academic articles. Gay published only 11 in a far less rigorous field, some of which were plagiarized. Black scholar Carol Swain was brutally honest: “What is bothering me is not just that there’s passages she didn’t put in quotation marks. When I look at her work, I feel like her whole research agenda, her whole career, was based on my work. She became president of Harvard and got recognition as being its first black president. I don’t believe her record warranted tenure, and I believe that I had to meet a much higher standard than she did. … It’s clear to me that standards were lowered in the mid-1990s, and the elites came together and decided that they were going to defend affirmative action. It’s clear to me that she was a beneficiary of that. I blame her committee, and I blame white progressives equally.” "A white male would probably already be gone," Swain noted. No matter, she still stays. As Harvard’s first black president, she becomes essentially untouchable. Whatever she does is by definition, ‘awesome’ and ‘brilliant.’ Fake historian of the #FakeNews New York Times said questioning her qualifications even after plagiarism evidence is 'racist.' Of course it is...
Oct 22, 2023 ~ Bill Maher explains why many colleges like Harvard have become worthless cesspools of left wing garbage.
"As an Ivy League graduate who knows the value of a liberal education, I have one piece of advice for the youth of America. Don’t go to college. And if you absolutely have to go, don’t go to an elite college, because as recent events have shown, it just makes you stupid. There are few if any positives to come out of what happened in Israel, but one of them opening America's eyes to how higher education has become indoctrination, among them the simplistic notion that the world is a binary place where everyone is either an oppressor or oppressed. In the case of Israel, oppressors being babies and bubas. The same students who will tell you that words are violence and silence is violence were very supportive when Hamas terrorists went on a rape and murder rampage worthy of the Vikings. They knew where to point the fingers; at the murdered, and then it was off to ethics class."
"Siding with terrorists," "34 student groups at Harvard signed a letter saying 'the apartheid regime is the only one to blame,' proving they don't know what constitutes apartheid. They don't know much of anything, actually. But it doesn’t deter them from having an opinion. They’ve convinced themselves Israel is the most repressive regime in history because they have no knowledge of history or even a desire to know it. And actual history doesn’t come up in their intersectionality of politics and gender queer identities class.”
“If ignorance is a disease, Harvard Yard is the Wuhan wet market. The reason why despising Israel became pretty much a requirement of the American Left is colleges, elite colleges, the mouth of the river from which this and all manner of radical Left illiberal, yes, illiberal nonsense flows. Supporting all-black, that is segregated dorms, segregated graduation ceremonies, and orientation programs, which occur on hundreds of campuses is illiberal. So is the racism against Asian applicants and chasing speakers off of campus. When the First Amendment watchdog group Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression began ranking colleges based on their commitment to free speech and inquiry, Harvard came in dead last. There is only one set of acceptable opinions on campus, and it’s policed hard." "Elite schools should no longer be called elite. Just say expensive." Oddly, after excoriating Democrats and the left, Maher ends up attacking Republicans, perhaps annoyed that they figured all of this out long before he did?
Sep 11, 2023 ~ Adam B. Coleman, 'Progressives ending grading in schools are condescending racists' So called, “equitable grading practices” eliminate tests, homework grades, attendance, 0s for missing assignments etc. Cheating can't even be penalized. Nothing is expected of black people anymore. All that matters is that whatever scores remain (if any) are the same across the races. Aug 13, 2023 ~ National Review, 'Harvard’s Cynical Move to Get Around the Affirmative-Action Decision' They are requiring an essay, "Harvard has long recognized the importance of enrolling a diverse student body. How will the life experiences that shape who you are today enable you to contribute to Harvard?" They are literally telling students to advertise their 'diversity' so they can judge how 'diverse' they will make the student body. Racists have no shame.
Jul 16, 2023 ~ Monica Showalter, 'California assembly passes affirmative action in sentencing law' Assembly Bill 852 requires courts to take race into account in sentencing. The idea is to give black people lighter sentences because they are oppressed in the US. #CRT
Jul 13, 2023 ~ Ridiculous race baiter and unserious person, @ElieNYC of #FakeNews @MSNBC responds to SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts regarding affirmative action, "I’s sho hopes Massa Roberts thinks I is a good Negro wit the determination to keeps learnin’ my letters at the fancy school."
Jul 11, 2023 ~ Berkeley Professor explains why many worthless x_studies degrees were created. Because many of the affirmative action admits could not handle real college coursework: “They admitted people who could barely read. There was a huge drop-out rate of affirmative action admits by mid-terms. No one had taught them the need to go to class. So we started introducing BS majors, in an effort to make the university ready for them, rather than making them ready for the university.”
Jul 8, 2023 ~ To further prove Democrats and lefties are lying 100% of the time they use the terms "white supremacy" and "white supremacist", check out how often they are accusing Asian people of "white supremacy" for being against discrimination of Asians. They truly are despicable people.
Jul 7, 2023 ~ Ann Coulter, 'The Truth About Legacies' Dems and the #FakeNews tried to paint legacy admits as affirmative action for whites. But they distorted they picture by lumping legacies in with athletes and employee and donor offspring. Looking at legacies alone, they didn't need/get an affirmative action boost.
Jul 5, 2023 ~ Figure from SCOTUS Affirmative Action case shows clearly that they weighted the (completely fabricated) Personality scores so high that the "Overall" scores will turn out exactly how they wanted them by race with the Academic and Extracurricular scores not factoring into the Overall score AT ALL. The brazenness of their racism is amazing.
Jul 5, 2023 ~ #FakeNews @nytimes article, 'With End of Affirmative Action, a Push for a New Tool: Adversity Scores': "To build a diverse class of students, the medical school at UC Davis ranks applicants by the disadvantages they have faced." Instead of people competing to be the best, they now have to compete to be the most victimized and needy. Truly a sad and poisonous development.
Jul 3, 2023 ~ OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush said before his sub preventably imploded killing 5, “When I started the business, one of the things you’ll find, there are other sub-operators out there, but they typically have gentlemen who are ex-military submariners, and you’ll see a whole bunch of 50-year-old white guys. I wanted our team to be younger, to be inspirational." Did diversity hires compromise the safety of that sub?
Jul 3, 2023 ~ Justice Jackson is debunked making an absurd argument for why affirmative action is necessary. “For high-risk Black newborns, having a Black physician more than doubles the likelihood that the baby will live, and not die.” Totally false. "The difference is 99.96% vs 99.91%, not even statistically significant." And it doesn't account for the fact that the high risk infants are more likely to see White doctors in the NICU.
Jun 29, 2023 ~ In Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, the Supreme Court strikes down race based affirmative action in college admissions. Asians must score 450, 270, 140 points higher than blacks, Hispanics and whites for the same spot in college. SCOTUS said no more of that unconstitutional racial discrimination!
May 1, 2023 ~ A majority of colleges have dropped SAT requirements. Matt Yglesias explains the likely reason is that want to circumvent the probable SCOTUS ruling that will prohibit them from discriminating on race, which they very much want to continue doing. Having academic standards would admit too many people of the 'wrong' races so the standards must go in the name of 'equity.'
Mar 10, 2023 ~ Columbia becomes the first Ivy League university to no longer require SAT/ACT scores for its applicants. Other colleges have already done so. This is a transparent move to eliminate merit in the name of 'equity' anticipating SCOTUS preventing them from discriminating on race.
Feb 3, 2023 ~ Armond White, 'The Academy Awards’ Bad-Faith Riseborough Scandal' "Critics decrying her Oscar nomination, because she has the incorrect skin color, only reveal their own shallow bias." DIE poisons everything. How far we have regressed in just a few years.
Feb 1, 2023 ~ Betsy McCaughey, "Dems' Attack On Smart Kids'" War on Gifted classes in the name of DIE, #CRT. 'Equity' means cut everyone down to the lowest level. "The Hechinger Report, based at Columbia University's Teachers College, claims 'gifted education has racism in its roots."
Jan 15, 2023 ~ Governor Ron DeSantis shut down the @NHL's racist and sexist job posting: Open only to those who "identify as female, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+" DeSantis said, No, "Discrimination of any sort is not welcome in the state of Florida."
Jan 8, 2023 ~ VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: 'Are Universities Doomed?' To meet their new DIE goals, universities are scrapping merit at massively discriminating on race. Stanford only admitting 23% white. "It rejects about 70% of those with perfect SAT scores." Stupid kids worked their asses off! #CRT
Dec 14, 2022 ~ Sam Brinton, Biden's Department of Energy's deputy assistant secretary for spent (nuclear) fuel and waste disposition was caught twice stealing other people's luggage. Brinton who was hired to check the 'non-binary' diversity box was fired only after stealing the 2nd suitcase.
Nov 19, 2022 ~ Reagan Reese, 'American Bar Association Drops LSAT Requirement For Law School Admissions In The Name Of Diversity' Liberals in their hearts believe that black people cannot be held to the same standards as other groups. So all standards must be eliminated.
Nov 13, 2022 ~ Scientific American has gone 'woke.' Published #FakeNews article, 'Why Scientists Must Stand for Affirmative Action and against Scientific Racism.' They (a single author) actually claim that if colleges do not lower standards for black people, that is 'white supremacy.' Sick.
Oct 15, 2022 ~ David Strom, 'Racial discrimination in hiring professors? Say it ain't so!' "The hiring programs violate three different civil rights laws." The DIE poison has gone way beyond the old 'affirmative action' into pure racism and discrimination.
Oct 15, 2022 ~ "Canada Commits $200M for ‘Black-Focused‘ Organizations to Fight ‘Racism‘" 200 Million!!!! The purpose of this blatant racism is allegedly "to reduce anti-Black racism and improve social and economic outcomes in Black communities."
Oct 11, 2022 ~ George Leef, "Please Don’t Let the ‘Progressives’ Ruin Classical Music" Unhappy that there are too many white and Asian musicians, racist progressives demand the end of blind auditions so race can be taken into account. Meaning they demand standards be lowered for black people.
Oct 1, 2022 ~ No one really knows what 'equity' means? Affirmative action on steroids. Actual discrimination against the wrong kinds of people. Allowing crimes to happen. Letting criminals out of jail or not even prosecuting. Now it also means not sending kids with lice home. American Academy of Pediatrics says kids with lice should not be sent home due to "significant stress and stigma.
Sep 28, 2022 ~ Kenny Xu, "Less than 2200 Black students have a Math SAT score above 700, according to Brookings. This is compared to 48,000 whites and 52,800 Asians. Controlled for income, Asians still have higher SAT scores. Asians study 13 hrs per week, whites 7, blacks 5. Culture. Not racism."
Sep 5, 2022 ~ Reagan Reese, "‘Racial Reckoning’: How US Universities Are Watering Down Standards In The Name Of ‘Diversity’" The DIE virus spreads fast. Lowering standards. Eliminating standards. All that matters is skin color and signed commitments to bean count on race.
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Jazz Shaw, 'UK Air Force chief of recruitment quits over exclusion of white males' Racism in the name of DIE and #CRT is not limited to the US. Impossible "diversity targets set by air force leadership have led to hiring restrictions that are threatening military preparedness."
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Minneapolis Public Schools has adopted an illegal and racist policy which stipulates that white teachers will be laid off or reassigned before “educators of color.” "If a non-white teacher is subject to excess, MPS must excess a white teacher with the “next least” seniority.
Aug 11, 2022 ~ Chrissy Clark, 'Study Finds That Colleges’ Diversity Efforts Did Little For Students Of Color' Colleges are wasting 10s of millions of dollars on DIE depts and employees but results have not improved. No surprise since racism was not responsible for the gaps in the first place.
Jul 15, 2022 ~ Ryan Mills 'Florida Contractor Sues Biden Administration for Awarding Infrastructure Contracts Based on Race, Gender' "The Biden Admin have trampled on this foundational principle by giving tens of billions in special treatment to small businesses based on race and gender."
Jul 5, 2022 ~ Howard Husock, "Does Affirmative Action in Mortgage Lending Really Help Black Americans?" Short answer: No it hurts them and this is how we got the 2008 financial crisis. Lowering all kinds of standards like credit score, down payment, income req's that existed to reduce risk.
Jun 26, 2022 ~ Carlos Garcia, 'San Francisco school board votes for merit-based admissions after recall of left-wing board members' Democrats have to actually try the dumbest ideas imaginable like defunding the police and removing merit from admissions in order to figure out they don't work.
Jun 11, 2022 ~ Bryan Babb, 'Elite High School Ended Merit-Based Admissions. It Was A Complete Disaster' Surprising no one but Democrats, "Lowell High freshmen admitted through the lottery program received three times the amount of Ds and Fs than those of the previous [merit based] two years."
May 24, 2022 ~ U of South Carolina sued on a Title VI violation for creating their Business Success Academy was restricted to people who "identify as African American or Black, Hispanic, LatinX, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, or Two or More Races." #CRT
May 21, 2022 ~ .@libsoftiktok exposes illegal hiring practices at @Dropbox. Head of design, Jasmine Friedl who says she needs "less white people" in her life says she "prioritizes BIPOC candidates in her hiring process." "I choose to prioritize folks in our BIPOC and URM communities."
Apr 10, 2022 ~ Google is being sued by black employees for 'racism.' The company that bows to #CRT at every turn, hires Robin DiAngelo to preach the 'white fragility' religion and prides itself on its wokeness is supposedly racist. They are not getting the required quotas from black colleges.
Apr 10, 2022 ~ CA law requiring corporations based in the state to include racial minorities and LGBT people on their executive boards was struck down by a judge in LA. Declared unconstitutional which it obviously was. Democrats want all jobs filled by skin color, gender and sexual orientation.
Apr 2, 2022 ~ The NFL has a new mandate requiring every NFL team to hire one minority offensive assistant coach. Explicit quotas based on race. We are truly going backwards by the day.
Mar 19, 2022 ~ Ever since the San Francisco School Board ended competitive admissions at Lowell and replaced them with a lottery system, "I have three times as many students as usual failing." Racism' was never the problem, so pretending it was had predictable bad results.
Feb 28, 2022 ~ Biden nominates Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the Supreme Court. Biden announces that Brown is the most qualified candidate, not including the 95% of possible candidates he eliminated for having the wrong skin color and gender. Brown's decisions have frequently been reversed.
Feb 13, 2022 ~ John Sexton, 'Georgetown Law students silence anyone who defends Ilya Shapiro' Students are finding that they must either support firing Shapiro or keep their mouth shut. The mob quickly brands you a 'racist' for being against his cancellation. You become their 'next target.'
