Columbia Writ Large

15 12 2017


Covered on AR and SBPDL.  Net it out:  Globe be like:  ZOMG RACISM LOL~!!!!!1

In the past, the pre-July 19 version of myself, the one with my full and complete roster of capabilities, I would have deep dived this screed and refuted every point.  No can do these days, because, even though I beat this flu, I’m back to square one with all my other problems, and if I do too much thinking, I fear it will cause me physical pain.

So I’ll spare you all and myself, and opt for a short, overarching metaphor.

The way to think about Boston is that it is, for the most part, and when boiled down, a large metropolitan equivalent of a middle sized town or city that contains a large public land grant college or university, aka a massively scaled up college town writ large. Think: Charlottesville, Va., Chapel Hill, N.C., Columbia, Missouri, and many others, magnified many times and with many prominent colleges and universities, anchored of course by Harvard and MIT.

Where the analogy is apropos is that Boston’s gentry white liberal civic and academic elite have the same attitude about black people that the much smaller scale civic and academic elites in Charlottesville, Chapel Hill and Columbia maintain. They love them, but from a distance, and the berg itself doesn’t have that many, and the blacks who are socially closest to the civic and academic elites are carefully selected and SES-similar, not the ghetto undertow. Furthermore, the main use that said elites have towards blacks is to love them from a distance whilst using them as virtue-signaling tokens against those icky sticky yucky ducky kind of white people “way out there.”


Scam Artists Just Keep Scammin’ On

Palo Alto, California

Raj Chetty, (“Chetty Chetty Bang Bang”), one of the relatively few names I’ve encountered only relatively recently but can somehow remember, is back to his good ole scam artist-y ways.

In the past, his hustle was to sense that powerful people wanted to hear that the way to make everything better is to remove the black ghetto undertow out of core urban areas and plop them somewhere else, and that the way to become really important and a little bit famous and a little bit rich was to start with that conclusion and then build some junk social science around it as “proof.”

His new hustle is to sense that powerful people want to hear that spending a lot of money on CSIT-STEM education for children who are anything but white and Asian boys will mean a whole new crop of inventors and innovators, and that the way to become even more important and little more famous and a little bit more rich is to start with that conclusion and then build some junk social science around it as “proof.”

Of course, with just a little subversive thinking, then it’s not hard to predict that his new hustle will merge with his old hustle.  “Gotta get dem black kidz out to the suburbs so they can go to those bedda skooz and learn how to be inventors.”

Nevertheless, some useful social science has emerged out of his new hustle.  Namely, about comparing large enough school districts on eighth grade over third grade standardized testing marginal performance gains.  Because those of you reading these words know your Rushton and your HBD, you all could have easily predicted that the pregnant question here is which kinds of kids do the most and least cognitive and mental maturing between ages 8 and 14; the school districts that are most homogeneously comprised of those that do the least maturing will show out to be the worst in this research, whilst the school districts that are most homogeneously (or heterogeneously) comprised of those that do the most maturing will show out to be the best in this research.  Not surprisingly, the worst school district in the country for 8-over-3 is the one just over on the other side of the crick from the Arch, whilst the best overlays an Ivy League university.  Owning to the fact that black children tend to top out cognitively some time between ages 8 and 14 and then improve very little from there, whilst whites and Asians in the same age range will continue on their upward trajectory through that age range.  Meaning whites/Asians, especially those who are children of high cognitive functioning parents, will show the most 8-over-3 performance improvement, whilst the worst ghetto undertow blacks will show the least.

One more thing:  We all know the real reason why Chetty Chetty Bang Bang said “Lost Einsteins” instead of “Lost Edisons.”  Oy vey.

HRC Noticed Things

The story.

The hot text:

SJWs are hounding her, for obvious reasons.  Our angle is her hypocrisy.

But why?

All she did was notice things.

I can understand why those in prison for property crimes are a huge risk in that situation, because if you get sent to prison for property crimes, it probably means you committed a lot of them and/or did a whole lot of damage in the process and/or made off with a lot of expensive loot.  It’s easy to see why being prison slave labor in the Governor’s Mansion would be way more of a temptation for them than they could handle.  But I don’t get the notion that murderers aren’t that dangerous.  However, the state of Arkansas’s correctional system by the time of the Bill Clinton governorship had the data and experience to prove that, as Kurt Angle might have said, it’s true, it’s true.

The explanation probably goes like this:  19-year old Ooktavious murks 19-year old Dindutavious based on some lame-brained impulsive TNB, because Bell Curve City.  (E.g. the last can of grape soda).  Ooky gets a Murder-2 rap on his sheet and a thirty-year bit for his trouble.  After a decade and a half in the joint and his testosterone starting to empty out, he has calmed down, the wild has worked out of his system, and he actually regrets what he did at 19.  So, yeah, thinking it through, I can understand that, if you have to pick one, a 35-year old inmate who is fifteen into a thirty for murder-two, or a 35-year old inmate who is on his third year of a five bit for his fourth residential burglary, both black, but they could both be white, then I get it.

Diversity, For Real?

19 05 2017


ESPN:  Diversity and refugees, because Clarkston High School’s championship XC team.

It starts this way:

Dubbed “the Ellis Island of the South” and “the most diverse square mile in America” by various publications, this suburb northeast of Atlanta has evolved into a magnet for refugees and immigrants from around the world since the 1990s, and 44 percent of its current population is foreign-born.

As a result, the students at Clarkston High School come from more than 50 countries and speak nearly as many languages. Printed images of international flags — from Congo, Thailand, Pakistan, Ethiopia and others — hang inside the campus’ entryway, a mosaic-like tribute to the student body’s origins.

The varsity boys’ cross country team is a microcosm of the school and the town, with all eight runners on this year’s squad having moved to the United States from Africa. In November, three days before the U.S. presidential election, that team won yet another state title.

ESPN evidently doesn’t get its own joke.  Fifty countries worth of diversity, yet all four state championship XC runners are either East Africans or an eastern African looking young man from a western African country, and the other four are African immigrants.

The key word to understand here is HBD, not diversity.

Actual American

HBD prevails in the Boston Marathon.

The second fastest man is not only described as an American, he actually is an American, not some east African with a U.S. State Department issued passport.  He would be Galen Rupp, who won the bronze in the Olympic marathon in Rio.

It’s Not a Mystery, It’s HBD

One of the items that MissouriNet has been running with all morning is that the March of Dimes has released their state-by-state grades for premature births, and they grade for the Show-Me is a mediocre C.  In passing, MoD mentions a statistic we first learned late last current year that in Missouri, black women are 49% more likely to deliver prematurely than non-black women, and in the context of Missouri, “non-black” is almost a pure synonym for “white.”  MoD casts the disparity as a chronic and perplexing mystery.

If they want it not to be a chronic and perplexing mystery any longer, they should crack this book:

They will learn that, because of the r-K life history spectrum, and because of the racial differences therein, the average gestation for black women is a week shorter than for white women, with Amerindian/ish people in between, and East Asians longer than whites. (A racial pattern that seems to present very often in that book). What it means is that MoD is making a problem out of a non-problem because they’re holding black women to the biological standards of white women.
