They Have Options

Ferguson

Why are there only three blacks on Ferguson’s 53-officer P.D.? As you can read, it’s certainly not for a lack of trying, and they start to get to the right answer toward the end of the article when the Ferguson Mayor states that hardly any blacks apply to get on the force.

If you’re a black in the St. Louis area (for the sake of discussion and simplicity, I’m limiting this to St. Louis City and St. Louis County) and want to be a cop, would you want to be on the relatively low pay high danger Ferguson P.D.?  Especially when affirmative action means that every LEA will be lusting after you.  You have many better options when it comes to departments and agencies that pay better and/or have a lot more peaceful community to patrol.  St. Louis City has roughly as much danger but with higher pay, St. Louis County is very similar and you might luck out by getting plopped in a South County precinct, and lots of municipal P.D.s in various incorporated areas of St. Louis County may pay as poorly as Ferguson but are a lot less hazardous, i.e. black.  The most plum agencies are the old to new money suburbs of substantial population near Highway 40:  Clayton, Ladue, Town and Country, Chesterfield.  High pay and low danger.

This also says the mayor and five of the six city council members are white.  The mayor is pictured here, and looks to me to be mixed race, one of those Adam Clayton Powell type “black” men.

ICYMI, bookmark my frequently updating thread about the actual situation.  I put new news about and very closely relating to the festivities there, while tangential news and opinions that aren’t closely related to the violence like you read in this post, I’ll write a separate blog post.

FDNY ‘babying’ cadet who can’t pass fitness tests

She walked through her running tests and got winded climbing stairs, yet a physically unfit female FDNY probie was still allowed out in the field like a normal graduate — and given a year to pass, The Post has learned.

“She’s literally the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I’ve ever seen,” fumed an academy classmate of Choeurlyne Doirin, 39, who was given a uniform and a “light-duty” assignment even though she did not graduate on June 2 with the other 286 cadets.

They spelled “affirmative actioning” wrong.

Black Run St. Louis

14 07 2014

Downtown

We are in the fifty years after time period of the Arch construction, leading up to the 50th anniversary of completion in October of next year.

Fifty years ago today, Percy Green climbed up the under construction north leg to protest the lack of black workers on the project.

An event which he has lived off of ever since then.

It says that he was the only black of 600 technicians that Mac hired for the Gemini capsule.  It also says later that he timed his ascent, time at the top and descent in order to have enough time to get arrested, processed and bond out so that he could return home to get ready for his shift at Mac which started at midnight.  If his job was such that he could start at midnight and work overnight, I highly doubt that he was in engineering or design.  The real brainiacs probably had 9-to-5 hours.

You’ll also read of the famous I-70 “shutdown” that happened 15 years ago this past Saturday.  Now that wasn’t so long ago, and I happen to remember quite a bit about which the P-D conveniently leaves out, such as the fact that the St. Louis City Police Chief at the time, a black named Ron Henderson, closed I-70 in both directions, forcing all traffic off the highway, eastbound traffic had to get off at Goodfellow, westbound traffic had to get off at Kingshighway, to make sure the protesters, who planned to “shut down” the highway between Union and Riverview, would have no problems.  Henderson also shut down traffic before the time the protesters said they would “shut down” the highway.  Which means that Henderson was in on the protest, because he agreed with it.  Why wouldn’t an affirmative action police chief agree with blacks protesting for affirmative action in public construction contracts and hiring?

Henderson was interfering with state right of way for no good law enforcement or public safety issue, (even though they are interstate highways, the states’ departments of transportation purchase and own the right-of-way), and he could have been bought up on state charges for his little stunt.  Except at the time, the “state” meant Governor Mel Carnahan and Attorney General (now Governor) Jay Nixon, both Democrats, Carnahan has always been a black bootlicker, and Nixon was at the time trying to live down his anti-deseg legal action from his first term as AG.  Neither one would have dared laid a finger on Henderson.  A few years later, when MoDOT was gearing up for the Highway 40 reconstruction, the same gang wanted to “shut down” the highway in Richmond Heights, but the white chief of the police department in Richmond Heights was having none of that.

One more thing:  Eric Vickers lauds the high minority participation rate on the Stan Span.  I also know from first hand experience that the pavement on the bridge was pretty rough when it first opened; MoDOT and IDOT just did “emergency repairs” on it a few weeks ago.  Yeah, it is a bit curious that you have to do “emergency repairs” on brand new concrete pavement.  I’m putting two and two together here, in case you didn’t notice.

As far as the lack of black workers on the Arch construction:  Good thing.  It is said that Eero Saarinen, who designed the Arch, had to be so careful in his calculations and check them over and over again, knew that an error of 1/64th of an inch in a crucial part would have the two upward-rising legs totally missing each other once all the pieces were in place.  One who was so careful in his minute fractions probably would not have wanted the left tail of the bell curve actually building the thing.

Of course there are no problems with the VA hospitals in Florida.  That’s because most of the people that work there look like her.

What’s that you say?  Old white vets are dying because they’re on the contrived waiting lists for too long?  Why should she or any of her ilk care about that?  They’re old white people, after all.  They need to die.  The Oprah said so.





Not Controversial Enough

21 05 2014

South Florida

Rush:

Left to their own devices, these people would spend money without any regard for the consequences, in a fiscal sense.  So why do they not actually spend it on doctors?  And here comes the controversial answer:  That’s not the purpose of government.  The purpose of government from the left’s standpoint is not results.  If it were, LBJ’s Great Society wouldn’t be a dismal failure.

Remember, we’re not supposed to look at the results of liberal programs, are we?  There aren’t any that are successful.  Every social program to come down the pike that the Dems, liberals have authored, has busted up minority families, destroyed the border system in this country.  I mean, it’s a disaster.  The social fabric, the cultural rot taking place in this country is again the result of policy put in place by Democrats.  But with what?  Good intentions, yes, we are only supposed to judge the good intentions.  Social Security, Medicare, War on Poverty, you name it, all of ‘em are disasters, and because of that, we’re only supposed to look at the intentions.

So again, let’s come to the VA just to pick — and this would be true of any agency.  When it comes to the VA, results are really not the purpose of government.  What does a liberal want to run government for?  Power, exactly right.  Growing government.  The caller, the doctor, the good doctor had it right.  They spend the money on what?  Themselves.  They hire more of them.  They hire more administrative employees.

That’s not controversial enough, so I guess I have to be the one to fill in the rest of the blanks.

The purpose of the VA is to be an employment agency for otherwise unemployable black women.  And if vets just happen to get a little bit of good health care every now and then?  Well, it’s icing on the cake.

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.

SCOTUS:  MCRI is good to go.

Now, it’s time for the legislature I’m working around to pass the same kind of bill for my state, either as a matter of direct legislation or to put it on the ballot.  Quit dicking around with irrelevant and ineffective nonsense and do something that matters.

Remember the politics.  MCRI won in Michigan and won pretty easily during a blue wave election cycle.  The only Republican statewide candidate in Michigan to win that day was the AG running for re-election, not so coincidentally, he was the only Republican statewide candidate who openly supported MCRI, all the rest were vocal opponents.  Dismantling AA is one of the best ways for red army to poach blue army’s soldiers.

Can walk and chew gum at the same time, and (presumably) no felony sheet.

So the Ivy League schools are falling all over themselves to get him.

It says he has a 4.3 GPA, which means his school uses a five point scale for grades.  Translated to a four scale, he would have a 3.44.

Is a white student with a 3.4 GPA who is not a legacy going to get into any Ivy?  Okay, maybe Brown.  But definitely not H-P-Y.

Notice it doesn’t tell you what he got on the SAT or ACT.

As for the second part, the answer is ultimately nothing.  Because…affirmative action.

A U.S. Department of Justice study about crime in the East St. Louis area raises three solutions, including shutting down the Alorton, Brooklyn, East St. Louis and Washington Park police departments and either create a new standalone police district or have the communities contract for services.

Yeah, but then you’d still have affirmative action ook cops patrolling not just one Bell Curve City, but four of them.

ROTFLMFAO.

There won’t be any “real change.”

First off, they’re still persecuting the whistleblower.

But there’s a more fundamental reason.

In order for there to be real change, there must be a genuine and honest acknowledgment of the problem. And there can never be that in this matter because telling the truth about this particular problem is…

…RACIST.

The worst thing in the world to be.

Because…black scholarship athletes that can’t read who otherwise would not be qualified to look at a college are admitted to college, but need some contrived way to stay eligible.

As a wise man taught me a long time ago, you can’t solve a problem until you first identify a problem, and you can’t identify a problem if you’re prevented from doing so by the dictates of political correctness.

Wellston

July 13, 1999:  Then-Gov. Mel Carnahan, a Democrat, essentially gives permission to then-SLPD Chief Ron Henderson, black, to shut down a part of I-70 in Chocolate City St. Louis so that “black contractors” and various black cracker jack box theology degree reverends and their parishioners dressed up as skilled workers can hold a protest on the pavement of I-70 to display their frustration with the lack of black contractors and employees on the corridor rehabilitation project of I-70 through the city that MoDOT was starting that year.

The end result is that MoDOT and the FHWA fund a construction career training school for young blacks.  Okay, it was theoretically open to anyone between ages x and y, but they put it in Wellston.

Its most recent graduating class will be its last.  The program is shutting down.

Why?

Because only 34% of those accepted into the program have both graduated and found compatible jobs.

Because the placement rate has been falling in the last three years.

Because in recent years, every given class size is getting smaller.

WaT:

Congress finds shortcuts, eyes cover-up in handing out security clearances

The federal agency charged with screening employees for security clearance offered hints about how to cut corners, and its lax policies could have led to the clearance the Navy Yard shooter needed to access the base, the House’s top investigator said.

Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican and chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said his staffers have come across verbal and written policies from the Office of Personnel Management that indicate the security clearance process was short-circuited in the case of Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard shooter.

But Mr. Issa says OPM is refusing to turn over those documents and allowing them to be viewed only behind closed doors. If he doesn’t have the documents by noon Thursday, he said, he will issue a subpoena.

Mr. Issa said he thinks the agency is trying to protect itself from embarrassment from questions about the clearance process for Alexis and for Edward Snowden, the former contractor whose leaks have exposed some of the government’s most secret spy programs.

It’s not a mystery to me.





Michelle Obama: True Grit

14 11 2013

Washington, D.C.

So saith Blackie O:

“I set my sights high. I decided I was going to Princeton. But I quickly realized that for me, a kid like me, getting into Princeton wasn’t just going to happen on its own.”

No, it didn’t quite happen on its own. You needed a little help from your brother and your skin color.

“You decide how high you set your goals. You decide how hard you’re going to work for those goals. You decide how you’re going to respond when something doesn’t go your way.

“And here’s the thing: Studies show that those kinds of skills — skills like grit, determination, skills like optimism and resilience — those skills can be just as important as your test scores or your grade scores — or your grades. And so many of you already have those skills because of everything you’ve already overcome in your lives.

Let’s see how far grit gets someone with a 99 IQ when there’s a differential equation in front of them.

“Maybe you’ve had problems at home and you’ve had to step up, take on extra responsibilities for your family. Maybe you come from a tough neighborhood, and you’ve been surrounded by things like violence and drugs. Maybe one of your parents has lost a job and you’ve had to struggle just to make it here today.

“One of the most important things you all must understand about yourselves is that those experiences are not weaknesses. They’re not something to be ashamed of. Experiences like those can make you stronger and more determined. They can teach you all kinds of skills that you could never learn in a classroom — the skills that will lead you to success anywhere in life. But first, you’ve got to apply those skills toward getting an education.”

And they’re something to put on your sob story college entrance essay where you dog whistle your race so that the admissions boards have a way to circumvent affirmative action bans.
