There are just two problems with Shikha Dalmia’s narrative:

1.  Affirmative action isn’t dead or dying, in spite of our being able to push back against it in some states in regards to college admissions.  The reason AA isn’t dying is because AA isn’t a line item public policy, it’s a state of mind.  Affirmative action won’t die until white pathological altruism dies, and that looks very much alive and well.

2.  There is no such thing as white privilege.  (Even though there should be.)  Miss Dalmia’s evidence that there is is that:

Elite schools — both public and private — routinely hand preferences to athletes, children of faculty, celebrities, and politicians; “development cases” whose wealthy parents offer hefty donations; and, above all, offspring of alumni. Princeton sociologist Tom Espenshade found that nearly two thirds of all these non-race-based preferences at elite universities benefited whites in 1997, even though whites made up less than half of all applicants. In some Ivies, no more than 40 percent of seats are open to candidates competing on pure merit.

So, since elite schools goose admissions for the kids of elites, that’s evidence of some wide scale society-wide “white privilege.”  Funny she mentions Tom Espenshade, because he and Alexandria Radford did another study later on to prove that the real bias in Ivy admissions are against working-middle class whites whose activities are “proletarian,” things like JROTC and 4-H.  Everyone else, including Jews, as Ron Unz has proven, has a leg up relative to their meritocratic standing.

Here’s the most telling thing at all:  Dalmia writes for Reason, a supposedly right-libertarian magazine.





Rorschach on a Roll

Orange is a county where the white voters gave Barack Obama less than 20% of their votes.  It does not mean meant Romney carried the county, and a county not being orange on this map does not mean that Obama did carry it.

It’s amazing how two different people can see the same thing and come up with two different tellings of the tale or interpretations of the data.  You can read what Nate Cohn of the NYT thinks, and I doubt that he’s out of the NYT mainstream on that.

My interpretation is that the white people in these orange counties, and a lot of others that were close to being orange on this map, have done the heavy lifting for the Stupid Party election in and election out, and have almost been a Stonewall Jackson to preclude its extinction.  Yet those white voters have disappointingly little to show for it, one rare and fleeting exception was SCOTUS upholding MCRI earlier this week.

This map doesn’t prove Nate Cohn correct, it proves Hunter Wallace correct.





Cliven Bundy Noticed the Black Undertow

WaPo:

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Well, almost noticed. Really, this is barely stronger than the typical lamestream conservative mentality on race.

This is designed to try to weaken and neutralize the support for Bundy. I happen to think it’s a good acid test on whether the aracial right is still in full racial pandering mode.

I’m the one who told you twelve days ago that our initial victory was one of public relations.  You didn’t think the empire wasn’t going to try to strike back on PR, did you?  With that said, here’s how to respond to it:  One option is to say that Bundy’s remarks are too left wing on race, which is what I think they are.  If you’re not a pedal to the medal HBD type like me, then another option is in a neutral sense to dismiss the remarks as totally irrelevant to the matter at hand, as irrelevant as if Bundy would have said that he thought that broccoli sucked.  What is not a good idea is to try to denounce these remarks yet still embrace Bundy and the pregnant question at the same time, because that just comes off as contradictory, and by contradictory, I mean schizophrenic.  If you’re not an HBDer like me, then you don’t want to muddy the waters, confuse the issue, and create a “Bundy is bad and good at the same time” philosophical paradox.  But to me, it’s not a paradox, because I don’t think racism is bad.

And also, Bundy is about to discover who his friends really are and aren’t.

I wish he was going back home.  If that’s what he was really up to, he could have handed around the tip jar, and those of us here in the WN/EN/RR/HBD/DE/NR sphere would have filled it to the brim, enough for him to pay for legit plane fare.

But I’m with Debbie Schulssel — This was a dry run for something big and bad.

Six Simple Rules

23 04 2014

Washington, D.C.

A deputy assistant deputy assistant of something-or-another at DOJ has laid out a six-item criteria to decide whether Federal prison inmates should be sprung loose during Obama’s impending chimpout in the last two years of his Presidency.

The “standards” are:

– They are currently serving time in a federal prison and likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today;

– They are non-violent, low-level offenders without significant ties to large scale criminal organizations, gangs or cartels;

– They have served at least 10 years of their prison sentence;

– They do not have a significant criminal history;

– They have demonstrated good conduct in prison; and

– They have no history of violence prior to or during their current term of imprisonment.

Here’s the problem.

The fundamental problem with them is that whoever wrote them must believe this false meme going around that there are lots and lots of Federal prisoners who get 20 years just for having a little bit of weed.  That myth is largely peddled by the liberTARDian drug legalization crowd and professional excuseologists for black crime.

Hardly anyone in Federal prison meets all six of these standards.  If you have already done “at least ten years,” this means you got a sentence longer than ten years.  And the kind of people who get Federal bits longer than ten years (being mindful of the fact that those that do are not eligible to be placed in minimum security facilities, 10+ year fliers must be placed in at least medium), are not non-violent people, or do have ties to large scale criminal outfits, or do have a long enough prior sheet, or had a history of violence before their current bid, or a combination of these things.

Really, nobody’s going to pay attention to these standards, especially not President Obama.  He has one standard:

–  The inmate must be part of the Democrat electoral coalition or must have a high probability of voting Democrat.

While I’m on this subject, Yahoo Snooze has this long spread about this matter, profiling a white woman in Federal prison, supposedly for meth.  I get the feeling that they’re deliberately leaving out a few details.  I am almost certain they’re profiling a white woman as cover for the fact that Obama will be opening the prison house doors for mostly blacks and Hispanics.

Rand Paul opens mouth inserts foot again on immigration.

Except he has slightly backpedaled from previous statements — He now says we can’t let the whole world in.

That’s a real comfort to me.
