Never start a fight. Always finish one.
A Harvard University professor claims in a new academic study that merit-based admission processes at elite universities “reproduce inequality.”
Natasha Warikoo, the Harvard professor, is upset with native, White students.
She bemoans that, ultimately, the students she interviewed were more motivated by “self-interest” than a commitment to social justice.
“They value collective merit for its impact on themselves, not for social justice, or for the collective good of society,” she writes. “They are not espousing, for example, a vision of multiculturalism that emphasizes group identities and the need to support ethnic and racial groups.”
The best response to this comes in the comments section by Mike Larkin:
I noticed Mrs Warikoo attended a lot of elite institutions on her way from Pennsylvania to the Harvard faculty; and she certainly was 'privileged' in having 'Asian' parents that obviously pushed her to do well academically and, admittedly, her own intelligence and hard work. But not once in her bio did I see the phrase "and she gave up her opportunity to attend 'X' University to allow a poor, single-mother, Inner-city women to attend in her place." I didn't see any lines in her Harvard bio that read "and she refused the grant and asked that the money be given instead to a Navaho School to provide scholarships for poor, under-privileged native american children." She chose to teach at elite schools filled with privileged children from elite families (she taught, for instance, at the "International School in Manhattan" whose facebook page mysteriously only shows what appear to be exclusively very happily privilieged 'asian' chidren - strange, not a single inner-city or poor white appalachian share-cropper child appears in any postings from that school - they must have been out those days. Didn't she know all that time that she was benefitting from her "privileged life" and taking a postion that might have been filled by a less-qualified, but less-privileged non-asian? Funny how the students she interviewed are castigated for being all about "self-interest" because they don't like giving up what THEY worked hard to achieve - through merit being able to attend elite schools. But Mrs Warikoo doesn't see anything wrong with HER benefitting very handsomely from the same system. Don't they teach the meaning of the word 'HYPOCROCY' at Harvard or Brown or any of the other elite, only-for-the-privileged schools she attended or taught at? And we're supposed to take these people seriously?
It's fashionable to shit on White people for their "privilege" but strangely that rhetoric is absent when it comes to filthy rich Jews and obscenely wealthy Asians. What's partly funny and amusing is that those two groups would, logically, suffer the most from a system of diversity and equality.
The Very Bad White Man keeps a Black man down so that ... a mixed Asian / Black woman could win the match.

A researcher whose work was sponsored by the National Science Foundation explains how his mathematical paper was not merely rejected post-publication, but intentionally vanished by the New York Journal of Mathematics.
Multiple studies have found that boys and men are over-represented at both the high and low ends of the distributions in categories ranging from birth weight and brain structures and 60-meter dash times to reading and mathematics test scores. There are significantly more men than women, for example, among Nobel laureates, music composers, and chess champions—and also among homeless people, suicide victims, and federal prison inmates.
Wow. Just, wow. I literally can't even.
Darwin had also raised the question of why males in many species might have evolved to be more variable than females, and when I learned that the answer to his question remained elusive, I set out to look for a scientific explanation. My aim was not to prove or disprove that the hypothesis applies to human intelligence or to any other specific traits or species, but simply to discover a logical reason that could help explain how gender differences in variability might naturally arise in the same species.
DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!
Anyway, read the whole sordid affair. Science, mathematics, reality, and truth were sacrificed at the altar of social justice. The myth of monstrous males must continue.
Over the years there has undoubtedly been significant bias and discrimination against women in mathematics and technical fields. Unfortunately, some of that still persists, even though many of us have tried hard to help turn the tide. My own efforts have included tutoring and mentoring female undergraduates, graduating female PhD students, and supporting hiring directives from deans and departmental chairs to seek out and give special consideration to female candidates. I have been invited to serve on two National Science Foundation gender and race diversity panels in Washington.
Obviously, you didn't grovel enough, you sexist pig.
It would be interesting to read that horrible, no-good, very-bad, super problematic journal publication that was deleted by the New York Journal of Mathematics. Where does one go to download the PDF ...
The following tweet sums it up:
ReFrame — a coalition of industry leaders founded by Women in Film and the Sundance Institute — and IMDBPro announced on Tuesday nearly two dozen films to be certified for their gender-balanced productions.
Reframe launched the data initiative in an effort to recognize and promote gender-balanced films and television shows. The collaboration relies on data from IMDBPro to analyze films and television series to see how many women were involved in the production, and how much screen time female characters had. To earn the ReFrame Stamp, a film or TV show must meet a handful of requirements that call for women in key roles like starring, directing, producing, and writing. Additional points are awarded for having racial diversity.
So, fewer White men and more colored vaginas equals more points! My dream movie with Oprah starring as Hitler will soon become reality.
Story #1 about the modern Marine Corps:
The Basic School for Marine Officers is reeling from a cheating scandal that involved six second lieutenants accused of wrongfully obtaining and sharing key grid points for the night land navigation course.
Before the entire land navigation situation happened, Lt. Delta had filed a restricted sexual assault allegation, in November 2017. She was assigned a uniformed victims advocate, another Marine who is trained and assigned to provide support to sexual assault victims.
Story #2 on how bad words are very bad!
An infantry battalion commander sacked in the middle of a deployment with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, or MEU, was at least partially fired for allegedly using a term that could be disparaging to members of the LGBTQ community, Marine Corps Times has learned.
Following a vandalism incident during a port call visit by the San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock New York in Gaeta, Italy, Lt. Col. Marcus J. Mainz, the commander of 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, allegedly used the term “faggot" or “faggoty” during a meeting with the 2/6 Battalion Landing Team leaders, multiple sources have told Marine Corps Times.
You can break shit and kill thousands but please don't hurt feelings!
My grandfather, described as the Marine's Marine by the Commandant himself, used saltier language when telling us to get up in the morning. When we were in elementary school.

I once knew a blowhard teacher who got an economics class at a high school. He had never taught the subject before. Two days into the course, he had a quiz for the students. One of the "correct" answers on the multiple choice questions was: Scarcity is just another term for a ... shortage.
Fortunately for the students, he was replaced the next day.

A handwritten document titled "Phases of a Terrorist Attack." Talk of confronting and attacking "corrupt" institutions, including Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital. Jokes about dying in jihad. An underground stash of weapons and ammunition.
The court document said two children told an FBI agent that they had been trained in "advanced firearms handling and had been instructed to shoot law enforcement personnel when the time came and that they would be instructed in the future to attack specific targets such as teachers, schools, banks and other 'corrupt institutions.'"
It's amazing how the words "Islam" and "Muslim" don't appear in the entire news story.
A secret compound, child abuse, a dead body, conspiracy, terrorism — this has all the makings of a much bigger story, and yet I have to go hunting for updates.
Can't have evil White people getting the wrong idea about those diverse, peaceful, tolerant, and charming Muslims.
He mentions that race doesn't matter; culture matters. They're both intertwined. If you're the product of centuries of inbreeding, like many Muslims in Arabia and Pakistan, then even herculean effort is not going to make you a brain surgeon. In a relatively free and technologically advanced society like the US, the winners and losers will be largely decided on the basis of IQ.
When it comes to races and their average IQs, the following is not surprisingly true: Japanese / Chinese IQ > White IQ > Black IQ
Conor Daly is paying for the sins of his father.
Conor’s father, Derek Daly, on Thursday admitted he had used a racial slur in a live radio interview in the early 1980s. Conor Daly was born in 1991.
On Friday, Lilly Diabetes pulled its sponsorship decals from Conor Daly’s No. 6 NASCAR ride, saying that it didn’t want the distraction from their cause.
This logic will be very useful for the Right. For instance, the ancestors of the upper management at Lilly Diabetes might have used colorful language on some occasions.
The article above provides no context for that "racial slur". What Derek Daly said:
"Also on Wednesday, Daly affirmed to News 8 reporters that his offensive comments from the 1980s were made to Bob Lamey."
Daly, however, wrote in his statement that he had used the racial slur after Henry asked him how things were going with his new team.
"I responded by explaining that I was a foreign driver now in America, driving for an American team, with an American crew, and with an American sponsor – and that if things did not go well, the only 'n-word in the wood pile' would be me.
Nigger in the woodpile. One can buy contemporary "music" from millionaires in which every other word is nigger, nigger, nigger to the power nigger. Yet, here, a White guy loses money because his dad said the same word 33 years ago.

"I'll bury you people."
Socialist New York congressional hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lamented the closing of her former employer but glided over the fact that it was closing because of the minimum-wage hikes she supports.
Michael Saltsman of the Employment Policies Institute said politicians are to blame for the closure of businesses like The Coffee Place, which had survived for nearly 30 years. Saltsman said that rather than visiting her soon-to-be unemployed coworkers, Ocasio-Cortez should reevaluate her approach to economic regulation.
Fat chance. Socialism appeals to the two base and basic feelings of many people: greed and envy. Low-skilled workers should get a minimum of $10 $15 $20 an hour! The fact that money doesn't grow on trees and that many small businesses close their doors which means that those very same workers end up with $0 an hour is of very little concern to demagogues.

Blue Wave like that Blue Wall?
Since 1992, in six consecutive presidential elections, a solid block of 18 states had voted for the Democrat every single time. They would have given Clinton 239 electoral votes — 89 percent of the way to victory — if she had held on to them all.
Few bothered to ask those states’ voters what they thought, though. “Pre-election polling in the Midwest . . . just wasn’t there,” Salvanto said. When Trump knocked out Michigan and Wisconsin, two of Clinton’s critical Rust Belt supports, her Blue Wall crumbled.
Instead of owning up to their colossal failure the media bent over further for the Democrats and pushed the Russia! Narrative. It'll be amusing to see their new boogeyman when the Democrats don't flip the House in a few months.
In 2016, only two major surveys’ final predictions foresaw a Trump victory. Both of them — from the LA Times/USC and IBD/TIPP — were tracking polls.
These will be the polls to watch for 2020.

A few days ago, despite my constant refrain of how to deal with the media, I received an email from someone asking if he should talk to the big media organization that wanted to ask him some questions, that wanted to let him give his side of the story. I can't help but notice that in the entire written history of the mainstream media, no reporter has ever asked anyone to answer questions in order to publicly sacrifice his name and reputation to the reporter's editor's preconceived narrative.

Most journalists agree that there’s a great need for Trump rebuttals. I’ve written my share. But this Globe-sponsored coordinated editorial response is sure to backfire: It will provide Trump with circumstantial evidence of the existence of a national press cabal that has been convened solely to oppose him. When the editorials roll off the press on Thursday, all singing from the same script, Trump will reap enough fresh material to whale on the media for at least a month. His forthcoming speeches almost write themselves: By colluding against me, the fake media proved once and for all, that they are in cahoots with the Democrats and have declared themselves to be my true political opposition …

[...] The allegations surfaced Saturday night from Karen Monahan after her son alleged in a Facebook post that he had seen text messages from Ellison threatening her and video of the congressman screaming obscenities at her as he dragged her off a bed by her feet, The Associated Press reported.
White people are practically flashing neon lights for thieves in the Third World. If that scum doesn't get you, then nature most certainly will. The low quality food, impure water, and often non-existent sanitation will brutally tear down the Western immune system in a few days.
Worse, sometimes, you'll come across evil that celebrates death and carnage.
On August 7, the New York Times ran a story by Rukmini Callimachi about Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, a young American couple, both graduates of Georgetown University, who decided to quit their humdrum office jobs and go on an epic bike ride and camping trip that would take them all over the world. “I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years of my life in swaths of grey and beige,” Austin wrote. “I’ve missed too many sunsets while my back was turned.”
I can understand that sitting and staring at a computer screen gets tedious but to leave the confines of Western Civilization to find sunsets in shitholes is a recipe for misery.

Yup. Other races don't have this issue. Just look at the Chinese who have been cracking down on tens of millions of Muslims for years within their country. Where are the speeches and articles from bleeding heart Muslims?
Plus, it's difficult to maintain the Whites are uniquely bigoted and racist narrative when other major countries like China, Japan, and South Korea also loath Muslims.
The father of a missing 4-year-old Georgia boy was training children at a filthy New Mexico compound to commit school shootings, prosecutors alleged in court documents Wednesday. The documents say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border that was raided by authorities Friday.
The Sheriff didn't get the PC memo:
Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe previously said adults at the compound were "considered extremist of the Muslim belief." He did not elaborate, saying it was part of the investigation.
The family business marches on:
CBS News has learned Wednesday that Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam who was a possible co-conspirator in the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 -- but was never charged.
