    In my VDARE.com column yesterday night on the Bush Administration's belated triumph over Disparate Impact in the Fire Department of New York, the ironies were so rich that I didn't have room to analyze the legal reasoning of Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis's opinion in Vulcan Society v. FDNY. Fortunately, a reader has done it for...

  • Matthew Yglesias points out that the top 12 executives are all white men at Apple (which, in less than a decade and a half, has gone from down-and-out to the world's highest stock market valuation). He goes on to suggest how to begin fixing Apple's problem.Thank God I sold all my Apple stock in 1999 and used...
  • The name "Sarah", until it became universal in the 50s or 60s, was exclusively Protestant or Jewish. You would never find an Irish Catholic named Sarah until, maybe, the 60s.

    Not surprisingly, there is no St. Sarah, at least not one recognized by the Church of Rome.

  • Anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    Matthew:"And that will include government mandated remedies for Jews and Asians doing better than non-Jewish whites. No more than one board member or executive who is Asian or Jewish. No more than 2% and 5% of students at Ivy League schools who are Jewish or Asian, respectively. And Supreme Court members? Throw Breyer, Kagan and Ginsburg out on their asses."

    For that kind of policy to actually work, you would need to split up the white monolith into separate groups: Italians, Germans, Poles, Greeks, etc. It would swiftly become unworkable.

    "The real goal of these people spewing about "disparity" is to turn people against each other – blacks and Hispanics against whites, women against their husbands and boyfriends, ad nauseum."

    Women and men do not turn on each other; too much fraternizing with the enemy.

    "And the 35% of Forbes 400 members who are Jewish? Take every last damn dime from them 'til they're only 2% of the group. Create a Jew tax and a Hindoo tax to equalize wealth and success in this country. This is what Matt Ygelasias and George Soros and Rahm Emanuel and Elena Kagan want – and they can have it, good and hard."

    Again, this would only work if quotas were applied to all White groups. Americans of WASP background are over-represented at the top relative to their numbers. Would you be willing to see them reduced in number?

    "I will no longer ignore this issue when the conversation comes up. When people bitch about disparity, I will ask why it's wrong when whites do better than blacks and men do better than women, but fine when Asians and Jews do better than non-Jewish whites."

    Asians are non-White; therefore, nobody cares if they do better than Whites. As for Ashkenazi Jews, nobody cares if one group of Whites does better than another group of Whites. Does anybody care that WASPS do better than Portuguese Americans?

  • "What they're really doing is trying to encourage NAMs and (especially) white women to feel aggrieved at their "oppressors" – white (gentile) men. It's just a way of stirring up contention among one dominant group, white gentiles, to help another. It's a way to destroy traditional American culture.

    Are women really better off since they started doing this shit? Nope."

    Well… women aren't really a one big clubs that plots together every other Thursday. Here's how I see it:

    Women who are high quality people only ever wanted equality before the law, both because they thought it would benefit society as a whole and because they wanted a fair chance to self-actualize to their fullest potential. Today, they generally feel embarrassed and handicapped by the exploits of what passes for modern feminism, but they count on the ability of the people they respect to judge them on their individual merits. I think a lot of them manage to arrange their lives and development to their satisfaction, despite their frustration with the modern political climate. But then again, a lot of them managed to arrange for satisfactory fulfilling lives in previous political climates as well.

    The women who are easily indoctrinated with (questionably) flattering crap and are able to enjoy sincere moral superiority from a fake victim status are either damaged in some way, or, more likely, mediocre in talents and intelligence. From what I can tell, they are REALLY frustrated right now. They are stuck in boring, stressful jobs and have the frustrations of the mediocre men directed at them. They also don't seem to understand how and why they end up in their current situation. That must suck. But then again, they used to be completely dependent on and controlled by mediocre men and thus susceptible to all kinds of stupid misfortunes. Who knows which is worse? Hey, at least, those of them who are lesbians or autistic are probably a lot more comfortable now.

    Lastly, we have the intelligent sociopaths of the female sex. This must be the golden era for them, as they've been given a go ahead to rape and pillage for personal gain, which is all that can make these types of people happy anyway.

    So, even if the relatively recent shifts in culture haven't produced a large net gain in women's well being, I'm not convinced that they produced any sort of a net loss.

    In conclusion: 1. Laws that put limits on the rights of a whole gender are stupid. 2. Laws that are based on presumed victimhood are stupid. 3. Stupid laws hurt the masses, but those with well functioning heads and stable tempers will (almost) always find a way to not be screwed up by stupidity. 4. Evil will always find a way to benefit from any situation, especially a stupid situation.

    And the world keeps going round, and it's still so beautiful in so many ways. Time to try to work off these 3 cups of espresso which were supposed to make me professionally productive, but instead are causing me to tweak. Excuse this stimulant induced message. I'm gonna go for a run, force a deep tissue massage on my husband and mash bananas for banana bread. And i wish you the same, dear sir.

    Cheers!

    Much less well known people like Elon Musk, originally from South Africa, and Sebastian Thrun, originally from Germany, have actually been more pioneering technologically than "the biggest names in Silicon Valley news of the past decade" such as Jobs and Zuckerberg."

    Indeed. Musk has bent his energies and a considerable part of his fortune, to making practical, efficient, and (relatively) low-cost rockets for space launch and electric cars – far more significant than Facebook.

  • successful people want to believe that anyone could have done what they did. People want to believe that their success comes from hard work and virtue, not an accident of birth

    I've never seen any evidence of this. Smart people know they are smart because of their genes.

    Moreover, even hypothetically the argument makes no sense. The ability to work hard and be virtuous must come from somewhere. No smart peron believes in free will.

    A person's decisionmaking algorithm can't arise ab nihilo. Either it's inborn, or it's imposed by something after birth. Or it's a combination. Can this possibly be disputed?

  • Silicon Valley was originally founded and run by self-effacing WASP farmers from the Midwest:

    http://www.forbes.com/asap/1997/0825/102.html

  • I am done with these people. I didn't really pay attention to it on the first read, but Yglesias is explicitly supporting the EU law that would require private corporations to appoint boards that are at least 40% female. He wants government mandated remedies for disparity.

    OK. He can have them.

    And that will include government mandated remedies for Jews and Asians doing better than non-Jewish whites. No more than one board member or executive who is Asian or Jewish. No more than 2% and 5% of students at Ivy League schools who are Jewish or Asian, respectively. And Supreme Court members? Throw Breyer, Kagan and Ginsburg out on their asses.

    The real goal of these people spewing about "disparity" is to turn people against each other – blacks and Hispanics against whites, women against their husbands and boyfriends, ad nauseum.

    And the 35% of Forbes 400 members who are Jewish? Take every last damn dime from them 'til they're only 2% of the group. Create a Jew tax and a Hindoo tax to equalize wealth and success in this country. This is what Matt Ygelasias and George Soros and Rahm Emanuel and Elena Kagan want – and they can have it, good and hard.

    I will no longer ignore this issue when the conversation comes up. When people bitch about disparity, I will ask why it's wrong when whites do better than blacks and men do better than women, but fine when Asians and Jews do better than non-Jewish whites.

    Old Testatment names have been common among Protestants since the early 1600s because they wanted to avoid "saints" names required for Catholics to be baptized. Fundamentalist Protestants (Puritans in New England) also took virtus as names: Faith, Hope, Charity, Prudence. Not sure where "Cotton" as in Cotton Mather came from though.
    The name "Sarah", until it became universal in the 50s or 60s, was exclusively Protestant or Jewish. You would never find an Irish Catholic named Sarah until, maybe, the 60s.

    Probably for some of the same reasons that Hollywood is: successful people want to believe that anyone could have done what they did. People want to believe that their success comes from hard work and virtue, not an accident of birth. And to the extent that they can't convince themselves of that, there's white guilt over the advantages they had.

    Also, computer geeks tend to lean heavily libertarian. In 1996, when the Internet was just starting to take off but was still mainly the province of people geeky enough to figure out what AT commands to send to their modem to get a good connection, I remember some web site taking a poll where the libertarian candidate for president actually got the most votes. In the real world, he probably got 1% or less, but online he won.

    Now, some libertarian types lean more Republican and some lean more Democrat, depending on whether they care more about abortion and drugs or taxes and regulations. But when you're talking specifically about the younger ones who might
    be willing to move out to Silicon Valley to work for a startup, you're going to get more of the former type. Hence Democrats.

However, it's very likely there's a significant undercount of Hispanic (and other) illegals, so that figure should probably be reduced by a point or two. Furthermore, "non-Hispanic whites" includes all sorts of non-European Caucasians such as Iranians, Afghans, Armenians, other Middle Easterners, etc., whose numbers are quite sizable in Silicon Valley, and none of these groups are the "white Europeans" I was describing.

    So I stand by my claim that Silicon Valley is almost certainly less than 30% "white European"…

    "Silicon Vally" does not mean "the population of Santa Clara County".

    That's like thinking that "Wall Street" is populated by a representative cross section of the population of NYC. Since NYC is something like half black or Hispanic, surely Wall Street must be too?

    Those are both common German surnames (as is Jobs, although less so), Oppenheimer is often German-Jewish. It is worth noting how, even here in the far corners of the discourse on race and culture, participation by America's largest ethnic component is understated.

    Jobs himself had a German mother, and was raised in a German-American household where, as is so often the case, hands-on ability was encouraged, alongside academic achievement.

    Actually, Facebook is mostly un-Jewish at the highest levels. You've got Mark, Sheryl and I'm not sure about Ebersman(he could be Jewish or German, it's a 50/50).
    But the VP for engineering, which is more important in the Valley than the CFO, is a WASP. The same is true for most other positions.

    Mark only replaced his last COO, who was a WASP, because he tried to stab Mark in the back and take over the company. Had he done his job, you'd basically have Mark at the helm and rest of 'em would've been WASPs.

    Here's Facebook's current mangement team.
    Notice the total whiteness.

    http://www.businessinsider.com/facebook-silicon-valley-diversity-problem-2012-8

    Microsoft is mostly an all-white affair at the higher ends too.

    I read somewhere that about 30-35 % of all employees in the Valley are Asian, but Asians aren't complaininers.

    The people who raise this issue are white libs like Yglesias or race-baiting diversitymongers like Soledad O'Brien at CNN(who did an entire CNN special on 'Silicon Valley and Diversity'.

    Part of the reason why you don't see too many Asians at the highest level, I think, is because many of them create their own companies(which they then stack with Asians). Many of those companies do well, but most are also bought off at some point.

    Another is that 75 % of all Asians in the U.S. are foreign-born, and I'd guess the number is even higher for the Valley, so if you want to be at the top, you gotta be a founding member(most of the time) or come early on.

    The people who start the biggest Valley companies are native-born, they tend to be young, white male college dropouts and they tend to self-select for other white men.

    Although the newer companies are more diverse as you have more minorities who are native born(and by minorities I mean basically Asians and the odd high-performing Iranian). This is especially true in NYC, which actually has the most Asians per-capita of all major cities, a lot of Jews etc.

    The NYC startup scene is more diverse and more mixed.

    Yet you still have companies like Asana, the company of Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein, two of the earliest Facebook employees(when the company was actually more Jewish).

    Dustin is actually richer than Mark because he got more stock, and Justin is a mathematical genious.
    Probably one of the smartest guys in the tech industry, and that's saying a lot.

    Here's their employee page:

    http://asana.com/team

    Notice a pattern?
    Both Mark and they are young, very bright Jews.

    Yet they are much more likely to self-segregate among whites(or at least advocate diversity) than their more leftist parents.

    As a Jew, it's kind of interesting. I notice the same pattern for the younger kids I meet, especially the more educated. Their friends are very diverse, but if you start looking into the highest echelons, it becomes very white with Asians dotted around.

    Or just take the recent 'Girls whiteness' controversy. It's the same thing.

The problem for the windows pc makers is they can't resist going downmarket and using cheap parts. Sony used to mean quality and commanded a premium, now they license their name to any shady Chinese manufacturer that pays their price.

    What is interesting about California maps by race is that if you look at color census maps, 98% of the coastline is heavily white, as are most of the suburban inland areas. While a minority in California, they have both a large majority of land and an even larger majority of the nicest land.

The president was "voted off the island," in Woodward's phrase, even by members of his own party, as congressional leaders patched together an eleventh hour framework to avoid default.

  • "Just from looking at them, the number of Scots-Irish might be….0?"

    Tim Cook is a gay man from Alabama who attended Auburn University. There's a good chance he's at least partly Scots-Irish. How well-represented are Southerners in Fortune 500 management positions? Has anyone ever bothered to count, or do Southerners not matter?

    Other Apple execs are surnamed Mansfield, Sewell, Browett, Forstall, Ive, Cue (as in McCue) and Williams. Could very well be that as many as half of the top execs are at least partly Scots-Irish. Not likely, but possible.

    "No mention of the fact that at least a third of those executives look 'unbearably' (or hideously to quote Gregg Dyke) 'chosen'."

    Actually only maybe two do: Peter Oppenheimer and Philip Schiller are the only two that strike me as Jewish names, and even those two don't look strikingly Jewish.

    Perhaps that's why Yglesias dared to raise the issue: not only does Apple dare to have an all-white, male executive team – unlike Google or Microsoft or Facebook (or Slate) it bothers to succeed without a lot of Jews.

    How about Samsung? or Nokia

    Ive just checked the Samsung board. They are all Korean and thus the Samsung board is already 100% diverse, nothing to worry about there (though they are all men).

    Nokia's board is all white (different nationalities) though it does include some women so I suppose they can just about claim a measure of diversity.

    We should note that Nokia is in trouble and Samsung isnt.

    It is interesting that so much innovation was confined to a geographic area.

    At the turn of the century, innovation was occurring in the midwest and eastern seaboard.

    Probably more due to wealth and resources, but even 20 years ago, people could change the world working in their garage.

    I don't know what to think about this.

    On one hand, Apple products are very bad in terms of value for money and they only make money by ripping off old people and selling image to hipsters.

    On the other hand, their goal isn't to make good products, their goal is to make money. And they make money.

    So I guess this shows that white males are good at business but not very ethical?

  • "Jobs doesn't count; he was just a plain old White guy."

    I have no doubt that Jobs got much of his smarts from his academic biological mother and father. But having read excerpts of his biography, it seems to me that a lot of Apple comes from the tradition of working-class tinkering that characterized majority white America, and Jobs father.

    Reading a book about the origins of mountain biking, I was struck between the similarities between the dudes up in Marin who were improvising, making homemade this and that, riding, and working toward a new form of bike, and what I've read about the 'Homebrew Computer Club', who were working less than 100 miles to the south.

    The bedrock of Apple success, besides its industrial design, hardware which can some what can be replicated is teh OS borrowed from FreeBSD. Apple cannot claim complete ingenuity in its products. It may appeal to most people, but Linux on IBM or Apple platform rocks far better.

    Thanks to FreeBSD based OS Apple is a success, a claim Steve Jobs accepted that Apple is a Software company.

  • It's pretty funny that after a summer full of iSteve posts that dared to notice how left wing diversity mongers like @mattyglesias never seem to get exorcised over their favorite trendy Silicon Valley firms' (and, in particular, Apple's) distinct lack of diversity, Yglesias writes a piece criticizing Apple's lack of diversity.

    Slate's "Godawful Whitemaleness" headline (did Yglesias write the headline himself?) just makes it that much funnier.

    It's almost like somebody at Slate is doing a parody of … well, Slate, Yglesias and their ilk.

    Jews, like Christian Arabs, are White. Hence, they are not "diverse." There are also two Italians on the board as well, but there are no Estonians or Latvians (to the best of my knowledge); nobody cares about intra-White diversity.Whiteness is monolithic.

    Apple has produced a highly 'feminine' brand by tech company standards.

    Apple's not feminine; they're high modernist. It's just that all the other tech companies consider design to be telling manufacturing what shade of biege to use for the case.

    And, yes, the absurdity of Matt Yglesias opining on what makes a good board of directors for what has been for the last ten years the most successful company on the planet is not lost on me.

    So, as anyone who is familiar with institutional design should know, directors should be people who have significant experience and connections, and serve as (among other things) a sounding board for the CEO.

    Basically, you want to promote people from senior exec to CEO to board member. Suggesting that Apple should stick a woman at the top, just because of her sex, seems like the height of folly.

  • That's awful! Not only are they proving themselves to be sexist pigs over there at Apple, but they are depriving themselves of the valuable feminine perspective.

    The best way to fix all this is to hire ME! I could benefit Apple by:

    1. Showing up for all the public events and forcing my ugly (but very distinctly female)mug into every photo

    2. Showing up on time every day in proper attire (or not showing up, whichever is more comfortable for them)

    3. Never embarrassing them in public by being caught with a live girl or a dead boy

    4. Being generally friendly, pleasant and upbeat which could very well include home baked goods, on a regular basis.

    You know, they are going to hire some woman, given enough public scolding and pressure. But instead of it being some big shot's daughter who's been indulged by the big shot her whole life, so she won't get the joke, it should be someone like ME. At least, I'd be genuinely grateful and accommodating. The only special perk I's ask for is that the tech mafia arrange foe Stanford to enroll and certify my children, even if they'll be retards. Especially if they'll be retards.
