Why Bill Gates Et Al Want to “Fix the Schools”

Norm Matloff:

Using the standard argument the industry lobbyists have been making for almost 25 years, IBM says once again that H-1Bs are needed for the short term, but the long-term solution is beefed up efforts at education and retraining in special skills. This has been the greatest red herring in the entire H-1B debate, and I’ve written extensively about it. No need to go into that here; let’s just say that it is certain that IBM rejects many American applicants who are well qualified for those jobs, and that many existing IBM workers could quickly learn new material to perform that work as well.

That got my mind to thinking, then one thing led to another.

I now tend to think that Bill Gates’s obsession with “education reform” isn’t really to reform education or to make education work.  I think his real interest is to promulgate the fiction that American schools are that bad, as a predicate to his subsequent demands for more H-1Bs.





Running Out of White Kids

They “want more white children in the school to learn about each other’s cultures,” said Aminata, her smiling face framed by dangling African braids during Friday’s protest.

They want more white children in their school to buffer and mask non-white failure, and to be their punching bags.

There, I fixed it.

Haven’t you ever noticed that the people who scream the loudest with their mouths about racial equality demonstrate by their actions that they are the least to believe it?





Now We Know Why Saida Grundy Hates White Men So Much

The louder she screams about the evil white man, the more she probably hoped that this little indiscretion from her recent past wouldn’t be dug up.

Don’t be surprised if the man in question she had been with and trying to get back is white.  If true, that probably also plays into her current outlook.

Supporters of #KillAllWhiteMen diversity officer start own hashtag… which backfires

Controversial Bahar Mustafa was ordered to resign after tweeting the hashtag #KillAllWhiteMen and banning whites and men from a meeting at Goldsmiths University.

The vice-president for welfare and diversity at the institution’s student union claims she’s not racist, describing her language as “in-jokes” within minority groups.

Why resign?  All she was doing was parroting the DNC platform the Labour Party manifesto.

Everyone associated with a controversial TV show hopes that the Parents’ Television Council comes out against it.

When the SLPD went to Roosevelt HS to tell students not to play Knockout Martin Luther King, guess what happened next.

And now, the FBI is going to a Hackensack, N.J. charter high school that presumably has a large population of “susceptible” individuals (Muslim, Arab, South Asian, etc.) to warn them not to fall sucker to ISIS propaganda and run off and join ISIS.

Maybe God shouldn’t have been so explicit about that apple.





Does This Mean Deseg Is Over?

University Report: A Room Full of White People Is a Microaggression

According to a new report released by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, just “walking into or sitting in” a classroom full of white people is a microaggression in itself.

“Students of color reported feeling uncomfortable and unwelcomed just walking into or sitting in the classroom, especially if they were the only person of color, or one of a few,” stated the report, which designated the experience a microaggression.

Oh boy.  Does this mean deseg is over?

Ahem:

Despite the fact that so many of these “microaggressions” are designated as such based on questionable assumptions, the study still recommends that the school take drastic measures to stop them: requiring that all students complete a “General Education requirement about race, White privilege, and inequality in the United States” as well as “both a non-Western culture and a US people of color cultural course”; fundamentally altering the curriculum to ensure that a third of all college 101 classes “include diversity and inclusion”; providing workshops, trainings, campaigns, and brochures “to help students identify when racial microaggressions are occurring”; creating a “slogan or language” — such as the phrase “Racism Alert” — to use when they identify one; and developing a “mechanism for students to report perceived racial microaggressions.”

Oh well, fun while it lasted.





Keeping Up the the Narrativedashians

The alternate orientation alphabet gang at the University of Oregon is mad that all the hoopla and hysteria and paranoia about “rape culture” only involves cishet men raping cishet women, and not enough attention is paid to rape and sexual assault and domestic violence either by or against those in the alphabet gang.

Hey, slappy.  Don’t you know why that is?  Because there’s a narrative being peddled that the alternate orientation lifestyle is all roses and puppies and kittens and rainbows, and that being what used to be called “normal” means living in the Ninth Circle of Hell.  Must not let anyone think that gay men ever rape or beat up gay men or that lesbian women ever rape or beat up lesbian women.
