Click through to the student newspaper editorial and pay close attention to the comments.

"Diversity" is like Orwell's  Animal Farm: some are more equal than others.

So the guy used the 'ol "But I know someone who is .a .........." as a qualification to be nominated for the position.
 
2013-05-18 10:41:22 AM  
Eh, I'm okay with that. I actually do tend to agree that having a white, heterosexual male in charge of diversity sends the wrong message.

The victims of racism are the real racists, always.

Also, I like how a national news agency is reporting on (a misrepresentation of) a student decision like it actually matters. Gotta keep the paranoids listening to right-wing radio.

Wait, these nominations were blocked by the student senate? By a vote?

How can FOXNews possibly have a problem with nominations being blocked by the Senate? Oh, wait, he was voted down. That's not a filibuster. Can't have that.

From the article:

The outgoing vice president for diversity and inclusion had endorsed Piotrkowsi as the best candidate for the job - noting that he identifies with a religious minority and has a sister who is gay.

He was voted down. The real racism is assuming that just because he was white and qualified, he would automatically get the job.

And people never vote based on prejudices? It seems the person whom he was to replace thought he was the most qualified of all the candidates, not merely qualified. Do you disagree with that opinion, which seemed I be shared by the author of the editorial of the school newspaper and many commenters? You seem to have some specific insight, so would you care to share it?

In my opinion, you're reading into the opinion you want to read into, because it's the one that makes you feel the most victimized.

"According to the author of this editorial" is never valid evidence for anything but that the author had that opinion.

And, by the way, we don't elect presidents based on who the previous president thinks would be best for the job in a democracy. That's more of a "private sector", "dynasty" thing.

Editorials are opinion pieces that don't have to be based in fact or even journalism to be published. If you're endorsing the opinion that all editorials claiming to be familiar with a situation are to be immediately trusted, you'll fit right in at TFA's comment section.

The best thing to ever happen to the civil rights movement was when that sheriff turned the fire hoses on those poor little black kids trying to go to school - in front of the cameras.  It wasn't until that scene that America realized just how ugly racism can be.

Soon, white heterosexual males will have a similar moment.

kingoomieiii: The real racism is assuming that just because he was white and qualified, he would automatically get the job.


Yes, you've made it clear that you think being qualified for a job does not mean you should be considered for it. The guy didn't say he's qualified because he's white. His critics ARE saying he's unqualified because he's white.

kingoomieiii: In my opinion, you're reading into the opinion you want to read into, because it's the one that makes you feel the most victimized.


He's reading the opinion of people who STATED their opinion of why the guy shouldn't have the job.

If we can't take the reasons given to us for why they oppose the guy on their own merits, what should we do? Should we do like you and ignore what they have said and instead argue off of what we want their argument to be?

I love being a white guy, it's the best. Oh noes I might not be able to be "vice president in charge of diversity" or whatever. I guess I'll just have to settle for being "president of the United States" instead. Or you know... Absolutely anything else my mind can imagine for the most part.

Wait until it fractures. At one point being WASP/non-WASP was the breakdown. They took out Anglo-Saxon Protestant and threw in all the white non-anglosaxon non-protestants. Those Catholic Italians and Irish, welcome to the club of the great oppressor. Slavic Orthodox? Jews? Congrats... you're now the "enemy" who are responsible for all the worlds ills.The only way to repent is if you're gay or maybe possibly muslim. You can argue online and post all the flyers you want and be more of a Tim Wise than Tim Wise but you're only one conflict away from being as racist as David Duke.

I worked under contract at a very large corporation that celebrated their diversity to a high degree.  Nothing wrong with that at all.
There were posters everywhere (that bordered on propaganda) touting their love of diversity and how it was so vital to their success.  Not one of them had a white male in them even though white males were quite prevalent and were definitely doing the heavy lifting in pretty much every aspect of their business.  When someone finally made a comment about this, they replaced all of the posters.
They now include a white male, a very fabulous white male.  HR smiled and and basically said FTFY.

WhippingBoy: Owangotang: WhippingBoy: halB: The best thing to ever happen to the civil rights movement was when that sheriff turned the fire hoses on those poor little black kids trying to go to school - in front of the cameras.  It wasn't until that scene that America realized just how ugly racism can be.

Soon, white heterosexual males will have a similar moment.

The sad thing is, I don't disagree with you.

You may not disagree but you will be wrong. There will not be a moment as built up to over one hundred plus years that targets white, straight males. There will undoubtedly be minor moments where white straight males cry that they are being persecuted, however no one will give a shiat.

I'm not claiming to be persecuted. I'm just saying I recognize bigotry when I see it.


There is no doubt that discrimination and even bigotry against white, straight males exists. It may even be growing. It won't, however, lead to a moment anything like the sheriff turning the hoses on the kids. Maybe that is the enduring balancing of racial history, a lukewarm bigotry against white straight males that never fully resolves. I don't know.

I watch several hundred commercials per week at my job. We prepare ad media for broadcast in markets all across the country.

Things I have learned from this job:

1. Auto and furniture dealers seem to advertise the most
2. Everyone pays more for gold than the "other guys"
3. Men are hapless morons while women are confident and infallible
4. There is plenty of racial diversity going on
5. Spanish language alternates of certain ad spots are unintentionally hilarious
6. Auto dealerships will finance a car for 6 years and no one bats an eye
7. Anything goes in the Vegas market
8. "Conservative" politicians seem to be the only ones advertising on TV and are crawling over each other to show who hates Obama the most and the most "conservative"

"We know from our investigation that the people charged in this case were friends with white people, socialized with white people, dated white people. So not only is there no evidence of any racial animus, there's evidence to the contrary.

Farty McPooPants: I worked under contract at a very large corporation that celebrated their diversity to a high degree.  Nothing wrong with that at all.
There were posters everywhere (that bordered on propaganda) touting their love of diversity and how it was so vital to their success.  Not one of them had a white male in them even though white males were quite prevalent and were definitely doing the heavy lifting in pretty much every aspect of their business.  When someone finally made a comment about this, they replaced all of the posters.
They now include a white male, a very fabulous white male.  HR smiled and and basically said FTFY.


I also worked under contract for a very large corporation that also celebrated their diversity to a large degree. In fact my work included helping their communications efforts to promote diversity and I'm a white heterosexual male. Their diversity efforts extended to several foreign countries such as China, Brazil, South Africa and others.
I caused a lot of consternation when I asked how diversity would be observed in China. It was finally concluded that hiring women was the solution.
I wanted to suggest they look for caucasian men since they are a minority in China but decided that keeping the work was more important than making a point.

True, life experiences have no bearing on your role on a diversity panel, apparently.  Neither does your experience working with a group called the "Inclusion Task Force."

What's kind of frightening to me is that the skin color and sexual orientation became the focus of this, rather than the candidate's individual merits and prior experiences, and the position he was being considered for was not in any way meant to represent the multicultural community, but rather to oversee diversity initiatives from other campus groups.

Anyway, I think this is just more a case of a bunch of narcissistic teenagers with too much power being narcissistic teenagers with too much power more than anything.

So the only thing that qualifies you for a diversity council is to be a minority?  Maybe I don't understand.  When did diversity and inclusion start excluding people?

I do happen to be a white heterosexual male and I am not complaining about anything in my life.  I think I got it pretty good.  I just see it as kind of funny that any individual is excluded from a diversity council leadership position based on gender, race and sexual orientation.  I am, however, certain this kid will be just fine.

kingoomieiii: Nabb1: kingoomieiii: Nabb1: "Diversity" is like Orwell's  Animal Farm: some are more equal than others.

The victims of racism are the real racists, always.

Also, I like how a national news agency is reporting on (a misrepresentation of) a student decision like it actually matters. Gotta keep the paranoids listening to right-wing radio.

The white heterosexual guy who wanted to be on the diversity committee was a racist? Do you have something against white heterosexual males?

He was voted down. The real racism is assuming that just because he was white and qualified, he would automatically get the job.


I'm pretty sure the real racism and bigotry was when he was voted down for no reason other than the color of his skin and sexual orientation.

Would it be wrong if someone was denied a position for being black and/or gay? Then it's wrong for someone to be denied a position for not being those things.

Elmo Jones: Vectron: I think one could say the same about George Zimmerman, yet look at the narrative created my the entire mainstream media.

Luckily, he'll get a trial, and a jury. Emmett Till's killers were graced with neither.
The multitudes of black men who were lynched got no such justice; so when I hear about some white kid who didn't get to lead a diversity group, pardon me, if I'm not singing the blues.



Look, there is sooo much black on white crime in this country it has to be hidden from the public. There was a Time Magazine article from the 1950's in fact, that said black on white crime was being censored back then (so we could move forward with civil rights?). We will never know for sure how much of any crime is motivated by race but we've seen police reluctant to label crimes as hate when the victim is white.

Blacks have got back at whitey in spades.

From the Daily Northwestern editorial:

Hayley Stevens, the outgoing associate vice president for diversity and inclusion, stood by the decision to nominate Piotrkowski, who worked for her on the diversity and inclusion committee.

"He was our best candidate," she said. "My position is not meant to represent the multicultural community. That's not what it's here for. We are here to hear about different diversity initiatives going on across campus. We're meant to streamline them. We're meant to connect them to other groups."
 So the job involves monitoring and managing troublemakers, not helping them make trouble.  Sounds like a white hetero male with "minority religious" background (read, "evangelical Christian sect") is the best candidate.

This.  It sounds like the guy just didn't interview well.  He presented no accomplishments, no goals, no ideas, just the lamest excuses for qualifications.  The outgoing AVP didn't mention any specifics about him, either.

Reminds me of a meeting in which the promotion of a woman to a management position was announced.  Her new boss said,

"Diane is going to be the new __________ because... well, because she's been here the longest."

That worked out about as well you expect.

Also from the editorial:


Sargent Hall senator Jesse Seitz asked Stephen Piotrkowski if being a white male helped his nomination for associate vice president of diversity and inclusion.

"When you're forced to work with all these multicultural groups that are, for the most part, not made up of white males, do you think you have the perspective that is not their perspective, to bring to them?" asked Seitz
To further diversity and inclusion, it might be a good idea to expose these multicultural groups to perspectives that are not theirs.  If there is not a white, hetero, male group among "all these multicultural groups," that's a serious failing of the D&I movement.

Or maybe "diversity and inclusion" doesn't mean what it pretends to mean.

I was actually passed over for a contract to do produce some multi-cultural educational materials back in the 1990's. The meeting was set up by a white male friend of mine. I was the best qualified for this particular project but the wise Latina project manager didn't think I had the right qualifications/pigmentation. It was no big amount of money but I thought it would be fun. That was my first taste of discrimination.

How did the student government determine that the candidate is heterosexual?

The comment about "white, heterosexual male" was made by Ian Coley, a member of the diversity committee.  I think he was not describing this particular candidate but rather an archetype that "no university" is ready to accept in a diversity leadership position.

As the editorial noted, representatives of several multicultural groups were present during the candidate's consideration and voiced strong objections to him.  We are not told what those objections were.  But if many of the people you'd have to work with don't want you, then you are the wrong candidate for the job.  Remember Adrian Richards?

Three candidates were voted down in the election. There's suddenly a shiatstorm about the white one. The white one who was, by the way, the most junior member to be nominated.

It's funny every time a bunch of white people get up in arms when they find out about a place where white people aren't in charge, and then are denied when they try to be in charge. "It's discrimination!" they cry.

But cheer up. Straight, white males control the vast majority of the government, the military, the private sector, entertainment industry, everything. Meanwhile white business owners think it's not racist to dump a resume in the garbage because the name at the top says "Latisha" or "Treyshawn" because they 'can't take that name seriously'. Between a black couple and a white couple with the exact same finances and credit rating, the white couple is much more likely to qualify for a bank loan. And more white children have gotten into colleges via "legacy" than affirmative action ever have- a chain of "legacy" that started before minority students were accepted by colleges at all.

Things that really get to me: when you can say that having a group for whites only is racist, or a scholarship for whites only is racist, but at the same time you can have a group for blacks only or a scholarship for blacks only and it's not racist.  In both cases the scholarship or group was based upon skin color and nothing else, but the playbook that we have to accept states that one group plays by a different set of rules.  Why is that?  Some say because the U.S. once had slaves.  Well, the U.S. also liberated those slaves and no one alive today was a slave so that shouldn't be why.  Others point to everything before and during the civil rights era.  That was decades ago, and the insistence that it continue where every group possible, save for whites, gets an advantage is punishing more and more people who had nothing to do with the racism that sparked the civil rights movement and rewarding those who don't give two shiats about it.  If we as a nation honestly want to practice treating everyone equally, regardless of race or gender, then things like scholarships based on skin color or ethnicity or gender or sexual orientation needs to come to an end.  We need to stop looking upon the white population as the group with all the advantages and recognize that we've created a system where they get shafted and anytime the prospect of a whites only item comes up we scream 'racism' to kill it, and then we go even further to call it 'reverse racism' when it comes to preventing the white population from having their own groups or scholarships or white only schools or even promoting white owned businesses and prevent any discussion on the matter of is it really reverse racism or is it flat out racism?

It doesn't matter the skin color, but prevent the advancement or promotion of one race so that the others get advantages is racism, end of story.

kingoomieiii: JesusJuice: I'm pretty sure the real racism and bigotry was when he was voted down for no reason other than the color of his skin and sexual orientation.

Three candidates were voted down in the election. There's suddenly a shiatstorm about the white one. The white one who was, by the way, the most junior member to be nominated.

It's funny every time a bunch of white people get up in arms when they find out about a place where white people aren't in charge, and then are denied when they try to be in charge. "It's discrimination!" they cry.

But cheer up. Straight, white males control the vast majority of the government, the military, the private sector, entertainment industry, everything. Meanwhile white business owners think it's not racist to dump a resume in the garbage because the name at the top says "Latisha" or "Treyshawn" because they 'can't take that name seriously'. Between a black couple and a white couple with the exact same finances and credit rating, the white couple is much more likely to qualify for a bank loan....


Yeah there is absolutely no logical reason for it except racism.  Past experiences don't enter into it. And those evil, greedy white men won't put supermarkets into black neighborhoods because the want to starve black children rather than make money.

Are you farking kidding me?

Is there a group of people in this world more self-absorbedly annoying than heterosexual white dudes? When you guys live in a nation built upon slavery of white guys, where guys couldn't hold property or vote, or had to deal with decades of institutionalized racism then you can biatch about being oppressed. Until then you're still the highest paid and most powerful demographic in the country.

Whites have instituted many programs and laws to make blacks equal to whites in this country. I think its pretty plain that for whatever reason blacks haven't done their share of the work. They can't run a city that isn't corrupt and broken. Outside of entertainment and sports they don't seem to be compete, contribute and fit in our culture. Its time to stop blaming whitey (however valid that may be) and try to work on being less self destructive.

If you want to know why there's no money moving through a given neighborhood, check the crime reports.  Lean into "crimes against  people", "robbery" and "assault".  Crime keeps you poor.  Because people spend money places where they ain't gonna get jacked.  And I don't give a sh*t if the people who live in that high crime area are white, black, plaid or light gray.  Money goes where money get what it pays for, and when it rolls smooth, that's what it stays for, or else it rolls out to the fine trimmed lawns, the storefronts close and the neighborhood's gone.  The ghetto isn't where you live, it's how you live.  Buildings are ideologically inert.  Deal.

Quite honestly the only demographic that is trending towards ' discriminated against' is obese people. Smokers have already lost, there is nothing to be gained by discriminating against them further.

I'm not sure where it will go in the future. It is probably asking too much to hope that people who drive like self absorbed assholes are discriminated against.

you racist piece of straight shiat shut the fark up and enjoy your minimal wage job. also, please give you scholarship to whoever on your street has the darkest skin and the funniest sounding name. now go take your place in the corner.


I will try, but the corner is already claimed by Meso-americans for "la-raza"

i guess i'm a real racist. because i believe in diversity. yah i know that sounds backwards.

but i believe 'white, male' is also one of the categories that needs to be selectively hired, preferred, etc.

and that we should stop educating china and sending those degrees back to china. it's not buying us ANYTHING.

That's no way to talk about your Mom's vaj, even though it's accurate.

The candidate attended Norwich Free Academy, which is so proud of its diversity that there are detailed demographics on its Wiki page.  I think he might have a sincere interest in fostering diversity.

GoldSpider: cameroncrazy1984: There is no evidence that everyone who voted feels this way.

Attendees at the meeting claimed that because of these identifying factors, Piotrkowski could not adequately serve Northwestern's multicultural communities. Some even said his identification with a religious minority and his experiences having a sister who is a lesbian weren't good enough to make him qualified for the job.

Apparently the people who were actually at the meeting are making it up too, and are probably racists themselves.


Trying to point out evidence to the contrary has failed for six hours now. You are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who does not intend to be reasoned with on this issue.
 
2013-05-18 05:37:26 PM  
I get identifying by gender because chicks are wack. That people still identify by color baffles me.  I'm white and I have way less in common with white people as a group than I do with people that actually share my interests.  Hell I'm bald before I'm white.  Nobody cares about the prejudice we face.

kingoomieiii: JesusJuice: I'm pretty sure the real racism and bigotry was when he was voted down for no reason other than the color of his skin and sexual orientation.

Three candidates were voted down in the election. There's suddenly a shiatstorm about the white one. The white one who was, by the way, the most junior member to be nominated.

It's funny every time a bunch of white people get up in arms when they find out about a place where white people aren't in charge, and then are denied when they try to be in charge. "It's discrimination!" they cry.

But cheer up. Straight, white males control the vast majority of the government, the military, the private sector, entertainment industry, everything. Meanwhile white business owners think it's not racist to dump a resume in the garbage because the name at the top says "Latisha" or "Treyshawn" because they 'can't take that name seriously'. Between a black couple and a white couple with the exact same finances and credit rating, the white couple is much more likely to qualify for a bank loan. And more white children have gotten into colleges via "legacy" than affirmative action ever have- a chain of "legacy" that started before minority students were accepted by colleges at all.


Did you rtfa? He was voted down BECAUSE he was a straight, white male. They come right out and say it. There's no ambiguity.

True, but when the current king has been a tyrant, he needs a few kicks in the ass to remember that he's not the all-special all-amazing all-privileged golden boy he thinks he is, and that there are other people around him.

One voter came out and said it.  IDK how he knows the candidate is hetero.

IDK what all this fuss is about.  The student senate's process seems to emulate the U. S. Senate's advice-and-consent role in appointments of Executive officials.  Race, religion, and gender overtly play roles in that process all the time.  Haven't seen any sexual orientation debate yet but I'd say it's a matter of time.

A white person.

You see, being white is like having the original sin. You are tainted by the crimes of your ancestors the second you are born regardless of your actions and character in life, and all white people are born with it. The only way to seek salvation from this burden is to relinquish time, opportunity, and money to institutions whose job it is to scrub this terrible condition from you while admonishing you as an wicked human being.

The more time and money you give to these people, the more they will cleanse your soul of this evil. However, as one of the wicked, you are not allowed to join the upper ranks or bring up your own suggestions on how we should interpret their doctrine unless you are of a more righteous bloodline.

But be warned. Do not ever disagree with these people, for they have the support of powerful people and legions of supporters who can turn you into an outcast for speaking against their ideology.

Not sure why anyone is surprised by this.  Diversity measures focus, by their very nature, on skin color.  It is as racist a concept as there is. Period. So a group of racists is acting racist.  And no surprise the usual fark crowd that supports it. Lol.

Even though the position itself is pointless and stupid,  a person of color _____ being voted down because of being color _______ is wrong.

Bigger Leftist Intarweb Schlong: halB: The best thing to ever happen to the civil rights movement was when that sheriff turned the fire hoses on those poor little black kids trying to go to school - in front of the cameras.  It wasn't until that scene that America realized just how ugly racism can be.

Soon, white heterosexual males will have a similar moment.

Are you farking kidding me?

Is there a group of people in this world more self-absorbedly annoying than heterosexual white dudes? When you guys live in a nation built upon slavery of white guys, where guys couldn't hold property or vote, or had to deal with decades of institutionalized racism then you can biatch about being oppressed. Until then you're still the highest paid and most powerful demographic in the country.


A majority of white men couldn't vote for the longest time.  You had to own land.  Most white people did not.  You should at least learn what happened hundreds of years ago if you're going to victimize a whole race of people who live now for it.

What's the real meaning of diversity, in your opinion?

Having everybody on equal footing. If someone is qualified or unqualified for a position, it shouldn't matter what color they are.


That is a great description of diversity.

I look forward to the day when a man will not be judged by the color of his skin but by the content of his character.

That's no way to talk about your Mom's vaj, even though it's accurate.

The candidate attended Norwich Free Academy, which is so proud of its diversity that there are detailed demographics on its Wiki page.  I think he might have a sincere interest in fostering diversity.


Dude. Really.  That was just pathetic.  Grow some humor and a dick for your unfulfilled wife and try again.

Survey says: you are just attracted to nonwhite females because you want to act on your white, colonial instincts to dominate a person of color in order to overtake their race genetically.

I'm not exactly sure where I stand either. I'm probably the same percentage hetero as you listed but the wife is definitely 50-50.

We are both white and most of my girlfriends are white. However, my wife has enjoyed farking BBCs for about a year now. Later tonight she's having a threesome with two of them . So, I think our balance of payments on the reparations bill is probably zero.

If I'm wrong she could happily fark black guys a little more often if it would help. I'll ask the guys when they get here. I'm sure they will have a good laugh about it.

That's because they're just victims of the hetronormative eurocentric cultural imperialism pushed upon them by the entertainment industrial complex. A bald nubian women or a mustachioed female muslim is just as attractive as a skinny blonde in a bikini.

Especially when it comes to not being able to be the majority and hold the power.

Why does this surprise you? How many people would willingly give up being king?

True, but when the current king has been a tyrant, he needs a few kicks in the ass to remember that he's not the all-special all-amazing all-privileged golden boy he thinks he is, and that there are other people around him.

So, they kept the straight white guy off the diversity council? That's really sticking it to the Man.  Do you view all white guys as your oppressor, or are their other qualifications?

Being represented poorly is at least still being represented. Count the ethnicities represented on commercials during one afternoon of television. Write that tiny number down. Then get over yourself.


Your right: we do need more ethnicities represented poorly in daytime commercials. It's just not fair to stigmatize one group more than the rest.

Inequality (race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc) is something this country needs to discuss - in an honest way. Free from political correctness and allowing different folks to say what they think, ask questions, get answers.

"Intellectual diversity" on college campuses usually (though not always) draws the line at "bugf*cking crazy".
Folks like you who whine that there's no "intellectual diversity" on college campuses has either 1) never actually been on one that isn't named "Bob Jones University", or 2) are usually on the wrong side of "bugf*ck crazy" and hate that people ignore you (or just point and laugh) because of it.

PROPAGANDHI LYRICS
"The Only Good Fascist Is A Very Dead Fascist"
Swastikas and Klan robes,
Sexist, racist homophobes.
Aryan-Nations and Hammerskins,
You can wear my nuts on your Nazi chins.
I love a man in uniform.
Just what exactly are the great historical accomplishments
Of your race that make you proud to be white?
Capitalism? Slavery? Genocide? Sitcoms?
This is your farking white history, my friend.
So why don't we start making a history worth being proud of,
And start fighting the real farking enemy?
The white male capitalist supremacist.
Swastikas and Klan-robes,
Sexist, racist, homophobes.
This one's for the Master Race,
My brown-power ass in your white-power face.
Kill them all and let a Norse God sort 'em out.

WTFdoesitmatter: I Browse: WTFdoesitmatter: Some people have to learn the real meaning of diversity the hard way. Hopefully, this student will refocus his life on something besides trying to implement reverse racism.


What's the real meaning of diversity, in your opinion?

Having everybody on equal footing. If someone is qualified or unqualified for a position, it shouldn't matter what color they are.


Why do some white males cry like this now where a generation or so ago there was NARY A F*CKING PEEP OUT OF THEM about "everybody being on an equal footing"?

Could it be because their only competition was other white men?

If there had been this hue and cry about "fairness" in the 60's when I was a child, I could accept their premise.
Had I head it in the 70's when I was a teenager, or even in the 80's when I was in my 20's, I would still say that they might a case.

Now... just STFU. You have no case. You have gone much too long with having the field all to yourselves, and now that this is no longer the case you want to cry about it. Here's a tissue, and that's all you get.

uh it's not that we've got competition from darkies, bro, it's that those darkies are handed the job w/o respect to merit. it's no longer competition at all. being the best and some incompetent darky gets the job anyway. it ends up hurting the company that hired him, too, because incompetence.

Soon, white heterosexual males will have a similar moment.

The sad thing is, I don't disagree with you.


We already had a moment like that today, actually - I went to the credit union today, and the ATM was out of order. I actually had to go inside and talk to a teller. It was awful.

And yes, being white is pretty awesome.

If there had been this hue and cry about "fairness" in the 60's when I was a child, I could accept their premise.
Had I head it in the 70's when I was a teenager, or even in the 80's when I was in my 20's, I would still say that they might a case.

Now... just STFU. You have no case. You have gone much too long with having the field all to yourselves, and now that this is no longer the case you want to cry about it. Here's a tissue, and that's all you get.


So, you're one of those idiots that believes that people should be hired, promoted, accepted into schools, etc. based on the color of their skin and not the content of their character. Do you believe that it should be done out of A - spite and revenge or B - because you are admitting an inferiority that would put different racial groups at a disadvantage in these processes? Just wondering.

no, usually it's been "C: an unbalance exists in the system and a touch of re balancing via affirmative action like programs is necessary to restore an equal playing field."

unfortunately that has happened too much at this point and also people are acting out of 'A' right now because whites are out hip hop is cool even our president plays basketball and is black. kill whitey. pass that blunt.

what's not realized is that a lot of us whiteys are more: i didn't force you to pick cotton or rape your women. shiat, i was at the same reggae concert as you last week. i hate oppressive rich white shiatheads as much as you do.

It's been a messy past but whites (and I include women in partnership with men) have created a culture fit for our people with laws and technology and arts that can't be touched by anyone else.
Sub-Saharan Africans had not invented the wheel at the time they were brought over for slavery (And please don't state that the populist but ridiculous theories of Jared Diamond are fact).
Try not taking for granted that European civilization "just happened" to white people. This has to be said once in awhile.
Every people has something to be proud of but I prefer living in my culture.


I know you's trolling, but...
Ever stop to think (I'm stretching here) for a minute that whatever people choose to invent... happens to be what they need?
Take the peoples of the Americas... Mayans, Incas, those folks... what didn't they have wheels? I'll tell ya why... because they would have been no f*cking good in the mountains.
The people of sub saharan Africa and the great plains of north america? Because they didn't have a lot of sh*t to carry.
The peoples of the world who used the wheel (Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Asians etc) had three things: lots of sh*t to move, permanent cities and towns to move to and from, and relatively flat ground to build roads or rut paths. Nomadic peoples without many possessions and people who live on the sides of mountains don't care about any of this stuff. Why would they need wheels?

One could ask the same question "why haven't you invented a nuclear weapon?" Because you don't f*cking need it, that's why. European civilization did "just happen" to white people. That civilization was shaped by their environment, as all civilizations are. The inventions they made are a direct result of the cold, wet, crowded places they lived in, and the permanent settlements they created. Europeans were and are a warlike people. Maps of europe and the world bear this out. As such, much of their technical achievement was used for the purpose of killing other europeans (at first) and taking their stuff, and they were good at it. When they rampaged throughout the rest of the world, this tech made them a formidable foe.

Or is it you just want to dip into your bag-o-racism to try and justify why certain peoples are allegedly "less intelligent" than others?

Figures that you'd be wondering since you quite obviously couldn't recognize history if it kicked you square in your dumb ass.
Being a white male still puts you at the top of the heap in this country and in this world. You'll pardon me for not shedding a tear over this little pissant not getting appointed to some college group. I'm sure he'll do just fine compared to his classmates of color.

And if you'll read the thread, you'll see that most of the other white people here know that they have that advantage, and aren't sobbing into their beer either. Just little crybabies like you who get their diapers in a know because they can't have everything they want, just 99% or everything.

uh it's not that we've got competition from darkies, bro, it's that those darkies are handed the job w/o respect to merit. it's no longer competition at all. being the best and some incompetent darky gets the job anyway. it ends up hurting the company that hired him, too, because incompetence.


And THIS is where the racism comes in. The assumption is that the person of color is, by default, incompetent because of the color of their skin.

As if there aren't incompetent white males a-plenty in this world.

A logical reason might be that out of the qualified and competent candidates, they picked the person of color for whatever reason... but then logic isn't the racist's strong suit, now is it?

I wasn't trolling and what you laid down in this thread is the biggest, steamiest heap of BS I've seen in a while.
Your "theory" is just that, a theory. More like a bedtime story for the weak minded. I think  this claptrap stems from the populist writer, Jared Diamond who is as much a fan of white people as Tim Wise. Like Stephen Jay Gould and Sigmund Freud, his work will be debunked in the coming decades (get on the right side of history, Rewind)

Pretty much everything in the world around you is because of the invention, commerce, hard work, ingenuity and talents of white people. This should be taught in colleges!

Following the Richwine scandal this was written in the Scientific American:

The Fleshlight blows your whole argument out of the water.
 
2013-05-19 12:49:45 AM  
Here are some comments to that Scientific American essay I linked to above:


"Assuming Darwin was right, and that genetics is a real science, there will in fact be significant differences in personality, psychology, temperament, and cognitive ability between various human populations.
Unless all of modern science is false, it is theoretically impossible for all psychological traits and mental abilities to be distributed uniformly throughout all populations worldwide.
All scientists on earth without exception have known this for more than a century.
These issues should be studied intensively, scientifically, without apology, and discussed openly, without stigma, hysteria, or censorship.
Anything else is fascism, totalitarianism, antiscience.....The fact that Scientific American has published this perverted nonsense means that we are making the transition from the soft fascism of political correctness to something more overtly fascist."

-------------------------------------------------

"The Catholic church tried in vain to suppress/control scientific research. How long can the currently reigning belief system do it? Eventually, the truth - The REAL truth that most people already know, will be fully confirmed."

---------------------------------------------------

"It is not lost on some of us that this is essentially the same argument creationists use. They accept an ideological viewpoint and refuse to consider any evidence to the contrary. ...The difference is that they simply believe in a different ideological God(literal God, literal race equality). Saying that we should subject the scientific truth to an ideology is repugnant to many scientifically-minded people, and hopefully they will resist such ideas. Even if they don't investigate it here, it will likely be investigated elsewhere in the world, in countries like China and Japan. It is also likely that with continuing advances in genetics and neurobiology it will be impossible to overlook. We already know that blacks have significantly higher testosterone levels than whites, thanks to research on kidney cancer."

------------------------------------------------------------

"Should Research on Race and IQ Be Banned?"

No, research into any and all topics should always be permitted. If you don't agree, then you are an enemy of Western civilization, as well as of yours truly.

------------------------------------------------------------

"The notion that geographically isolated populations ( or socioculturally, etc.) of the same species may evolve variations in average physical or intellectual aptitudes is consistent with evolutionary theory. Furthermore, the notion that such intellectual variations may exist is certainly a falsifiable proposition and a appropriate subject for scientific examination. Political ideology should not dictate the course of scientific inquiry."

-----------------------------------------------------------

".....Unfortunately, sound unbiased research in this field is scant... while predispositions and "political correctness" are rampant.
Genetics and there nexus with the environment (epigenetics) are absolutely foundational and cannot be underestimated as fundamental determinants of all animal development both as a specie and individuals striving to survive and thrive.
The list of human genetic-based and genetic-influenced diseases is staggering. Genetic and proteonomics includes all alternations and manifestations of our biochemistry/physiology... our neurochemistry/behaviors."

------------------------------------------------------------

"John Hogan is spouting unadulterated nonsense. Minnesota reared-apart, monozygotic twins studies, in addition to numerous other studies and data bases overwhelming prove that the major contributor to IQ is genetics, no matter how politically incorrect it is to state that fact. If Scientific American considers political correctness to be more important than science, I will have to cancel my subscription. "

And this is where the failure comes into full bloom, and exposes the person who posted it for what they really are.
The problem with your train of thought (!) is that you constantly (and incorrectly) seek to equate "intelligence" with "what they invented". I could easily take a european person living in the 20th century, place them in the middle of a south american rain forest with nothing but a knife and the the clothes on their backs, and I guarantee they will be eaten within two days. If not, they will starve in less than two weeks.
Meanwhile there are peoples there whom you might call "primitive" who do just fine in that environment, and have for generations.  Are they less intelligent than the european? If so, why is the white guy now part of the food chain for local predators while the locals find what's left of him a week later? The answer is simple... the locals invented what they needed to get food and stay safe, and the white guy didn't.

Inventions have nothing to do with intelligence as an absolute measure (a measure which must, if to be believed, take into account the whole of humankind and not use a eurocentric bias), but are a result of the environment in which the invention was created. People make what they need.
You want to believe that other stormfront bullsh*t instead, be my guest.

Substitute any non-male, non white, non straight slur as needed... interesting coincidence that it was white men who thought most of them up.

Do you see that the basis of your argument is an opinion? Sorry, but that doesn't stand any sort of examination.
Think of all those lone white men working in their workshops late at night in the nineteenth century that gave us marvels for the twentieth century. It wasn't about need. It was about curiosity and other things.

Meanwhile in sub Saharan Africa, it has always been starvation and crisis. A sub continent wealthy in natural resources and fertility had to wait for white people make order for the Africans. Look what white people did with south Africa and Rhodesia. Kick YT out and those countries are descending back into the abyss.

"Inventions have nothing to do with intelligence as an absolute measure"

Let me say this Rewind, I don't believe the ability to invent determines a person worth. Some people have other talents. Some people are compassionate, Some raise families well. Some are trustworthy. All of this is of value.

No, I don't. Only those who choose to see those unlike themselves as less than equal in intelligence, worth and value than themselves simply due to an external variance in appearance.
Also, those who refuse to see how the history of this nation and the world impacts today, and how their ancestors (and in some cases, they themselves) still perpetuate that history.

As Lyndon Johnson said so eloquently in 1965, "You do not wipe away the scars of centuries by saying: 'now, you are free to go where you want, do as you desire, and choose the leaders you please.' You do not take a man who for years has been hobbled by chains, liberate him, bring him to the starting line of a race, saying, 'you are free to compete with all the others,' and still justly believe you have been completely fair . . . This is the next and more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just freedom but opportunity-not just legal equity but human ability-not just equality as a right and a theory, but equality as a fact and as a result."

For an good example of who I don't mean, look through this thread. Quite a number of white people are thoroughly nonplussed at the plight or the poor little pissant who didn't get picked for the diversity program, because they realize that he, and they, will do just fine.

They realize that as white people, and especially white males, they are already at the head of the line compared to others and always have been... and acknowledge that they have it pretty good. The ones who piss and moan and whine like spoiled children are those who probably have never been told that they can't have anything they want, and can't even fire up enough brain cells to realize how fortunate they are in this society. Women and minorities have always had to deal with this, and now with each generation the changes being made scare the sh*t out of the whining white men.

Most white people fall into the first category, and only a tiny (but loud) percentage are in the second... but I would imagine they are an embarrassment to all. Go back and read the thread if you want proof. "White people" aren't the devil, racist white people are.

But they're still crawling from the wreckage of oppression!  See?  they probably have pics of it on their iPhone in the glove compartment of the car their daddy bought them.  Oppression!  The memories, so vivid!  Whiny children.  How do they work?

utah dude: WTFdoesitmatter: are admitting an inferiority that would put different racial groups at a disadvantage in these processes? Just wondering.

no, usually it's been "C: an unbalance exists in the system and a touch of re balancing via affirmative action like programs is necessary to restore an equal playing field."

unfortunately that has happened too much at this point and also people are acting out of 'A' right now because whites are out hip hop is cool even our president plays basketball and is black. kill whitey. pass that blunt.

what's not realized is that a lot of us whiteys are more: i didn't force you to pick cotton or rape your women. shiat, i was at the same reggae concert as you last week. i hate oppressive rich white shiatheads as much as you do.


Are you out of your phooking mind?
If the players are equal why would all but one group be given a little unearned credit?
The whole concept of racial quotas and preferential hiring, and promotion, and being "socially advanced" in classes at university where no homework is turned in or needed, test results are another thing that doesn't seem to matter, as long as you didn't happen to be a white male, and (horrors) heterosexual.
Since everybody...well, not everybody, but several people have felt they needed to establish a personal sexual identity to properly address the matter at hand, and in so doing, even bi lib folks come off a bit, well, puritanical.
If you already know what you like...I guess you can say I'm this kinda sexual or that kind of sexual, but damn, there are just so damned many choices, and we only live so long...believe me, I'm nearing my "best if used by" date, and I still don't know what all I don't like. A personal hero, Mae West once said "When faced with having to choose between two evils, I usually go with the one I hadn't tried yet."
As far as the guy being a white male hetro snake handler, well, lets face it, them monosyllabic mouth-breathing mono-browed mutants from over at mud flats probably get a bunch of "White Privilege", discount on mud tires, confederate battle flags, teeveee dinners and them little pine trees ya hang of'n the rear view mirror, or for a festive look you can hang six or eight off yer rifle rack! One word P-A-N-T-Y B-A-N-D-I-T, w8...2 wurdz.
Anyway see some not diverse snake handlers at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlUhftHl_f0
Yup them ppls gots zillionz o bux, just frum bein whyte!
It's all just theater, there is a turning of the screw, a subtle undercurrent in urban life today.
Somebody said light it.
Remember Florence and Normandy, yeah that, now think all over the place. I know what my Asian cousins did, five bux says when it's going good it'll be a good time to settle accounts.
Anyway, none of the chicks at the school looked very hot at all, couple of ratty dudes, nah, just pull funding and don't hire certain applicoonts.
When the welfare checks don't cash, the cities burn....
I don't think diversity will be an issue when the dust settles.
Sexual preferences? A much more important non-issue but how does one decide????
And PHOOKUM if they can't take a joke.

If the position was black and asian lesbian student representative for example I can totally see why he would not be even considered being a white heterosexual male. The post is diversity which means anybody could do it as long as they promote diversity (however you do THAT)

don't go all watson racist on me. the quotas are from a reparations standpoint. and they're old, need to be stopped at this point. and yeah, usually when AA is dropped on a situation the person they hired is way incompetent. otherwise they'd be hired straight off. it's OVERCOMPENSATING. please find me a competent candidate for the job in any skincolor. i'll hire them cuz they're the best.

oh i watched the video, now high enough to get it. i need a faygo and to touch up my makeup. damn.

Judging from the articles, it's a non-job. Stuff like this usually is. The person hired doesn't actually promote diversity, the university simply gives the appearance of diversity by putting one more non-white person in a made-up and useless position.

rewind2846: Mambo Bananapatch: Wulfman: This is a position that should be reserved for a person of color.  A person of no color shouldn't be applying for it.


/learning the lingo

Why is 'person of color' satisfactory but 'coloured person' is racist? And who decides these things?

/stopped bothering trying to learn the lingo as it will just change in a few years anyway

The person whom you are addressing. If I were a woman I determine whether you address me as Mrs or Ms or just by my last name. As a man in a professional setting use Mr., if you know me as a co-worker or peer my last name will do, and if you know me personally use my first name. My preference. Whatever you want to be called is your choice as well. Simple, and not a difficult concept.


Not difficult at all, as long as you wear a label around your neck announcing your preference. Otherwise I have to guess, or start every introduction with, "Are you coloured, a colored person, Negro, African-Canadian, or how about I just call you by your name?"

cameroncrazy1984: Mock26: cameroncrazy1984: Mock26: cameroncrazy1984: Nabb1: Why not? Aren't you pre-judging this person based on skin color and sexual orientation?

No, I'm pre-judging the person based on what he says are his qualifications. What about being a white, heterosexual male with a lesbian sister is a qualification for being president of a diversity group? Does he have prior experience in such groups? Does he have prior leadership experience?

You do realize that if you exclude someone from a leadership position because he is white and heterosexual that you really do not understand the definition of "diverse," right?

Yes. However, there is no evidence that this was the case here.

And there is no evidence that it was not the case.

Oh so by all means let's just assume that it was the case, then?


From the article: "This university is not ready, in any capacity, for a heterosexual white male to be in charge in any way of diversity and inclusion," said Ian Coley, a member of the diversity committee. "I don't know if any university is."

So, yeah, the Diversity Counsel really does not understand the meaning of the word "diverse."

Could somebody essplain why all of these multi-factional, fragmented, oppressed types desperately need the assistance, approval, endless positive reinforcement  and unwavering and unquestioning respect of the very people they say are oppressing them?

Because if they were taught the value of self-sufficiency and independence, the people that manipulate them would lose their control.
 
2013-05-19 03:22:39 PM  
As a white hetero male, I'm really ok with the fact that I'm "oppressed". I have it pretty good in life, possibly in part thanks to the fact that I was born into the white hetero male club. I haven't had doors opened to me because I'm a white hetero male but at the same time no doors were closed and I've never been subjected to anything I would consider unfair or racist. So... go ahead. I have it plenty good enough that I can deal with it.

But if they already know enough to say "I'm getting the shaft", shouldn't they know enough to stop banging their tin cup at their shafters?

You would think so, but the benefits of remaining "oppressed" seem to outweigh the advantages of casting aside the yoke. I compare the situation to livestock on a farm - once they figure out why the food and facilities are provided, it's too late.

Further proof that "diversity" is simply a code word for being bigoted against straight white males.

So you are ok with hiring practices on the basis of race , gender and sexual preferences.

Correct. And let remember that this fellow, as a white heterosexual male, is the member of a minority at Northwestern.
What a bunch of pious hypocrites. It's disgraceful.

No argument here. That was actually kind of my point.
