As individuals, we want the best doctors treating and operating on us, the best pilots flying the airplanes we board, the best engineers designing the bridges we cross, the best scientists inventing and bringing to market the medicines and potions we ingest.

Yet the American Idiocracy is moving to equate merit-based institutions with institutionalized racism.

Tucker Carlson, likely the only merit-based hiree at Fox News, recently divulged that a member of the Trump administration was overheard (by a thought-police plant) expressing a preference for merit-based recruits for his department.

Egad, and what next!

Google, a tool of the Idiocracy, appears to have scrubbed its search of this latest episode in “The Closing of the American Mind.” However, it’s no secret that the education system already excludes the most naturally gifted, independent-minded individuals from fields in which they’d excel.

Race preferences notwithstanding, requirements for social activism of the right kind, for volunteerism and worldviews of the left kind, for working exclusively toward the best grades: These are things girls do better than boys.

In any event, when the best-person-for-the-job ethos gives way to racial and gender window-dressing and to the enforcement of politically pleasing perspectives; things start to fall apart.

A spanking new bridge collapses, new trains on maiden trips derail, Navy ships keep colliding, police and FBI failure and bad faith become endemic, and the protocols put in place by a government “for the people” protect offending public servants who’ve acted against the people.

As in this writer’s birth place of South Africa, the U.S. government has a pyramid of hiring preferences. Guess which variables feature prominently in its considerations? Complexion or competency?

Consider the procurement pyramid that went into destroying the steady supply of coal to South-African electricity companies. Bound by Black Economic Empowerment policies, buyers buy spot coal, first from black women-owned suppliers, then from small black suppliers, next are large, black suppliers, and only after all these options have been exhausted—or darkness descends, whatever comes first—from “other” suppliers.

The result: An expensive and unreliable coal supply and rolling blackouts.

Everywhere, media are congenitally incurious and corrupt. They aren’t digging. But it’s likely that similar considerations will go a long way in explaining the collapse of a Florida university campus pedestrian bridge, under which people were pulverized.

So far, the attitude of those who’re doing this can be summed thus: S-it happens. Deal.

As for the public; it receives no follow-up and learns to demand none. Hence, “The Closing of the American Mind.”

But if American institutions continue to subordinate their raison d’être to politically dictated egalitarianism, reclaiming these institutions, private and public, from the deforming clutches of affirmative action will become impossible.

It might already be impossible.

For example: Former FBI agent and patriot Philip Haney was dismissed by Barack Obama from the Department of Homeland Security and is nowhere to be found in the Trump Administration. This brilliant man’s goal was to do his job: stop Muslim terrorists in the US.

Alas, the intricate program and extensive network of contacts Haney developed were nixed, because political priorities had come to dominate the agency. As a result, innocents died.

Treason? I’d say so. So, where are the purges?

What were once merit-based institutions are being hollowed-out like husks through preferential, non-merit-based hiring, quotas, set-asides, not to mention the policing of thought for political propriety.

No longer beholden to the unifying, overarching value of merit, institutions, moreover, become riven by tribal feuds and factional loyalties—both in government and in business alike, where it is well-known that newly arrived “minorities” hire nepotistically.

Across the American workplace, the importance of “meritocratic criteria” such as test scores or “minimum credentials” has been downplayed, if not downright eliminated as “inherently biased against minorities.”

The U.S. government hasn’t had an entrance test since … 1982. It abandoned both the Federal Civil Service Entrance Examination and the Professional and Administrative Career Examination (PACE) because blacks and Latinos were much less likely to pass either of them.

In academia, law schools have lowered the bar in admissions and on the bar exam. Universities run a “dual admissions system”—“one admissions pool for white applicants and another, far less competitive, pool for minorities.”

The institutionalized American “quota culture” has been imposed by administrative fiat, courtesy of the “The Power Elite”—that engorged “administrative state” under which Americans labor.

For the purposes of conferring affirmative action privileges, American civil servants have compiled over the decades an ever-growing list of protected groups, “as distinct from whites.”

In addition to blacks, the list entails mainly minorities such as Hispanics—Chileans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, and Mexicans—Pacific Islanders, American Indians, Asian/Indians, Filipinos, Vietnamese, Cambodians (and homosexuals).

If the kind of immigration policies instituted by the über-left American Idiocracy (it includes most Republicans) continue apace, the institutional tipping-point will be reached in no time.

The reason is the “immigration-with-preference paradox,” first noted by Frederick R. Lynch, author of “Invisible Victims: White Males and the Crisis of Affirmative Action” (1991).

Once mass immigration became a bipartisan policy, millions of imported non-black minorities were—still are—given preference over native-born American citizens. No sooner do these minorities cross the border, legally or illegally, than they become eligible for affirmative-action privileges.

These preference policies govern both state- and big-business bureaucracies, which seem to have voluntarily (and energetically) embraced them, if only to subdue their white workforce .

It goes without saying that “those who came to this country in recent decades from Asia, Latin America and Africa” did not suffer discrimination from our government, and in fact have frequently been the beneficiaries of special government programs.”

There’s a world of difference between compelling minority recruitment to equal the proportion of minorities in the population and enforcing majority recruitment to equal the proportion of the majority in the population.

In South Africa, the majority is targeted for affirmative action: 75 percent of the population! In the U.S., it’s the minority.

ORDER IT NOW

South Africa underwent an almost overnight political transformation. One day a white, relatively well-educated minority dominated all institutions; the next, a skills-deficient black majority took over. Nevertheless, South Africa’s hollowed-out establishments are a harbinger of things to come in the U.S., where minorities will soon form a majority.

If American institutions have not yet collapsed entirely under the diversity doxology’s dead weight; it’s because the restructuring of society underway is slower.

Again, this will change once minorities in the US form a majority, as they soon will due to continued, unabated, mass immigration from the Third World.

    There is no doubt affirmative action is destroying the US. The NYC MTA is an excellent example where the city went on a rampage of hiring low IQ, minority affirmative action “workers” in recent years. As the more experienced mechanics and technicians, as well as managers, retire, the new breed can barely keep the trains running. It can’t get better, because as the experienced mechanics retire, the men who are supposed to train the younger guys are clueless. And that’s just one example from my morning and afternoon commute.

    My understanding is that the NYC transit union is a militant Caribbean affair. In DC, 97% of the bus and train operators are blacks and marginal black engineers are promoted over whites with PhDs. This has resulted in a predictable outcome. The deteroration of Metro.
    , @smellyoilandgas
    I disagree in part with "affirmative action is destroying ..."(should say America) not the USA, the USA does not exist any more in domestic America it is fighting wars in far away places.
    The cause of the general destruction about which you complain results from inappropriate strategy to bring about affirmative action targets. You send a bright person to Harvard and he or she finishes in three years, affirmative action was never meant to grant average or unprepared students a 6 year degree in 3 years, it was meant to educate the average among us to the highest levels each of us is personally capable to achieve; taking or scoring high on test is not a destruction eliminating achievement. In fact, in my 75 years three things I noticed a) the truly bright students refused to stay in college long enough to get a degree, 2) the really innovative high energy contributors generally refuse to get a license to peal the dough off of donut holes or to play underwater tiddly-winks or to build high rise buildings or to build airplanes ships or rockets, they just do it. No days, no one will fund or allow the true genius to contribute for several reasons: the state cannot get rich off of unlicensed activities and true inventions will put monopoly powered corporations out of business over night. Believe me the reason for a license is to be sure the genius does not put the corporations that support the politicians out of business; just as the degrees are required as a condition precedent to being hired into jobs that teach and give good life-time experience. Employers don't want smart kids, they want well trained kids.

    I also disagree that the best among us, can be discovered by an entrance test. What makes the prediction of degree versus job success is access. Those without degrees cannot get the jobs to prove their worth.

    The education institutions and the society that regulates it, intentionally under educate those who it will not allow, or that it does not want, to succeed. How can you keep an educated slave happy?

    Education content for minorities and most of the mainstream majority (wealthy class excluded) is highly limited and experience and opportunity devoid. True the course numbers are the same, the text books are the same, and even the test might be the same, but the content and revealing opportunities and learning experiences that good instruction provide are excluded. I coined this phase in 1973 "Education is a bureaucracy, learning is a biological process". In 1983 the bottom message of my email read "Molecular biology and genetics not medicine will find the cause and cures for cancer". Quality, experience filled education is only available to the wealthy; it takes millions to educate a pilot, and it takes even more to educate a good space engineer ( no wealth to pay, no ticket will be issued that will allow the experience of a quality education ). Exceptions are the very few extremely talented persons, they are like the good looking poor trash girl, she is good enough to marry into wealth, so to with the few really talented poor they will be trained to work for one of the Pharaoh companies (Tillerson may be an example). These very talented are given free passes.
    As for the bridge in Florida, engineering software today is so good, it can produce error free design results, better even than a very competent engineering and general contracting firm. Even the most under educated among us, can enter the data and use the computer software to process the data into quality plans and specifications. The real cause of the bridge failure, seems to be pilot error, maybe negligence; the decision not to block traffic until the weekend to fix the discovered threat was fatal.

  4. One aspect of the problem is we can’t figure out what to call the problem. My sense is its problematic to call it “affirmative action”. The worst transgressions are by private industry not the fed (not letting the feds off here, just sayin’) and private industry goes far beyond the requirements of legal-edict affirmative action under the banner of “diversity”.

    Industry is clever too. Affirmative action, the law, needn’t mean hiring, it can mean “action”, like efforts affirmatively undertaken to educate and prepare minority candidates or effort to be sure those candidates are in an applicant pool.

    Diversity really means the worst people imagine of affirmative action, i.e.: quotas, but its worse because private industry is so good at spinning it: “we have achieved our diversity ‘goals’”.

    Not quotas, “goals”. Oh, and managers know they’d better hit their goals.

    As far as I can tell this will not stop, can’t be argued with, will only get worse and gets worse if you do argue with it because arguing or reasoning telegraphs you aren’t willing to fight when something is being stolen by force.

    The discussion needs to change to: how do we signal a willingness and intent to fragment the republic if this isn’t stopped?

    That signal: may stop it. Then no fragmentation required. Arguing with it just makes it stronger.

    This form of “affirmative action” is rampant in the federal contracts arena, as “minority-owned” firms can place bids up to 15% higher and still be awarded a federal contract. I personally witnessed this when a small “minority native-American” firm was awarded a federal contract for security services. This “minority-owned” company knew NOTHING about security, so they hired the next highest bidder (that was a well-known international security firm) to perform the contract while the “minority-owned” company “skimmed a profit” for doing absolutely nothing.
    This is how contracting in the federal government works…

  8. anonymous[427] • Disclaimer says:

    A bit OT, but relating to this March 16 post on Sailer’s blog on how races score on postgrad admission tests. If you average the eight subsections of all the tests (GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, DAT) you get average percentiles that look like:

    Percentiles
    —————–
    white 50
    black 13.375
    asian 53.25
    hispanic 24.75

    If you convert these to SDs you get:

    Standard Deviations
    —————–
    white 0
    black -1.11
    asian .08
    hispanic -.68

    Or if interpreted as IQs, you get 100 for White, 83.4 for Black, 101.2 for Asian and 89.8 for for Hispanic. These almost perfectly match what IQ tests have shown for these four groups for decades.

    Steve comments that Blacks are perhaps more “ambitious” and Hispanics less, which might act to slightly depress the former group’s scores and raise the latter group’s, relative to its “true” value. Asians are perhaps suffering a point or two of depression too, due to “over-ambitiousness.” In any event, these scores are all within about 1-2 points of what the IQ tests have said for a long time.

  9. Few here read German, I think, pity.
    In 1919 the artificial state Tsjechoslovakia was formed.
    This state had most of the industries of the former Habsburg empire, to a large extent run by Germans.
    The Tsjechs discriminated the Germans, in the debates on this the Germans often reminded the Tsjechs that the industries could not be operated without Germans.
    An interesting example is the button industry, the Germans operating these industries were driven out, production in Tsjechoslovakia came to a standstill, those driven to Germany set up thriving industries there.

    Fritz Peter Habel, ´Die Sudeten-Deutschen’, 1992, 2002, München

    ´Als die Deutschen weg waren, Was nach der Vertreibung geschah: Ostpreussen, Schlesien, Sudetenland’, 2005, 2007, Reinbek, Adrian von Arburg, Wlodzimierz Borodziej, Jurij Kostjaschow, Ulla Lachauer, Hand-Dieter Rutsch, Beate Schlanstein, Christian Schulz

    Translation ‘when the Germans had left, what happened after they were driven out’.

    There are similar stories on how agriculture deteriorated in Poland after the Germans had been driven out.

    Actually, Whites did this. The 1968 affirmative action civil rights act was made law by a White male senate and more than 90 percent White male congress.

    An all White male Supreme Court ruled against hiring of qualified Whites in favor of extremely unqualified blacks in the Griggs vs Duke Power and kaiser vs Weber cases.

    Kaiser vs Weber was about the fact that Kaiser Steel mills required that applicants for foremen have a high school diploma.

    All White male supreme courts ruled against merit hiring in favor of unqualified non White hiring

    It was a White male government that did it. There were very few, almost no White women senators, cabinet members judges congress critters or even attorneys 1968 to 1973 when affirmative action was implemented.

    An interesting article from an avowed and acknowledged jew about the ‘undesirables’ and ‘deplorables’ (admittedly, not her words) trashing up the Jerusalem neighborhood. She seems very schooled on the history of Muhammed, and the timing of the appearing on the scene of the arabs that adhere to islam. What her history appears to be lacking in, or willfully omitted, is that her acknowledged ‘fore father’, Abram, was neither born in, nor was raised in, nor ever claimed to have a home in, Canaan; the middle eastern dust bowl that the jews and arabs are so rabid about. No, Abram was a Persian; or Mesopotamian; or fertile crescent dweller, depending on whose geographical history you tend to believe. Abram, in todays vernacular, was Iranian/Iraqi. Not Arab. Not Jew. And TaNaK quotes the history of Jacob as being “…a Syrian; literally, “Aram” [Deut. 26:5] Abram left Iran/Iraq and went to “…wallow in the dust (literal Hebrew) with the ‘Plishteem’, or Philistines. Now we call them Palestinians, but then they were Philistines. Why would Abram leave a beautiful fertile crescent in Iran to go to wallow in the dust with the ‘Plishteem’? And when Abram got there, there were already Canaanites living in the area, because he had learn to cheat them out of what was already theirs. So, who was there first, according to the jews Bible? Hmmm.

    A few years back the Washington Times had a great article about the culture within WMATA that has caused its collapse. Here's just the beginning of that excellent article:

    Ninety-seven percent of the bus and train operators at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are black, with only six white women out of more than 3,000 drivers, according to Metro documents — a lack of diversity at one of the region’s largest employers that has led to an acknowledgment of failure in affirmative-action documents and spawned a series of lawsuits.

    The homogeneity, interviews with dozens of current and former Metro workers indicated, is a proxy to a clubby culture of favoritism in which merit has little to do with promotions, and accountability, such as noting safety violations, is a career death knell. In typical examples, court and Metro records show, a black man who spent eight years in prison for dealing PCP was promoted to a high-level management position soon after his release, and whites in the same positions as blacks with far less seniority are inexplicably paid less.


    With Metro’s budget chronically strained and reports of mismanagement coming more regularly than trains, interviews and internal records depict a likely root: an environment in which hardworking employees are actively excluded and those who rise are those willing to do the bare minimum — never causing a stir by flagging rampant safety violations, reporting malfeasance or proposing improvements.

    “When the accident happened in 2009, I called a supervisor and said, ‘Is this the one we all dreaded?’ The way workers do their jobs, we all knew it was a matter of time. … The inept get promoted, and the capable get buried. Smart people were put in the corner, ostracized and given nothing to do,” said Christine Townsend, who sued Metro for discrimination and won.

    It is a culture in which a white male engineer near completion of a Ph.D. was passed over for a management position in favor of a black man who was barely literate, multiple staffers said.

    “The average rider wouldn’t believe the things that go on. There are so many easy things we could do to make the system better,” a station manager said. “But they’d never put me in charge because they know I’d make sure others actually did their jobs. They don’t want change. It’s go along to get along.”

    Metro is a quasi-public agency that receives funding from the federal government, Maryland, Virginia and local jurisdictions to operate a regional bus and rail transportation system in the national capital area, but is not beholden to rules that apply to fully governmental entities. With a $2.5 billion operating and capital budget for fiscal 2012, Metrorail serves 86 stations and has 106 miles of track, while Metrobus serves the nation’s capital with 1,500 buses.

    Metro’s affirmative-action plan notes that the 1.4 percent of its bus and train operators who are Hispanic and the 25 percent who are female of any race are “less than reasonably expected.” It does not make note of the 1.5 percent who are white.

    Even in entry-level occupations typically dominated by Hispanics, there are virtually none at Metro. Only one laborer out of 67 is Hispanic; of 540 landscapers, carpenters and cleaners, only 22 are Hispanic. In the national capital region, Hispanics make up 13 percent of adults and blacks comprise 25 percent; white women constitute 29 percent.

    “The odds of such a disparity occurring by chance are statistically infinitesimal,” Ronald A. Schmidt, a lawyer representing 12 white women exploring a class-action lawsuit, wrote in a 2003 letter. “There appears to be an entrenched network of African-American employees at WMATA that is able to steer jobs, promotion, training and other career enhancing benefit to persons of their own racial or ethnic group.”

    The average Metro worker had a $60,000 salary, which rises to $69,000 including overtime. That is more than 71 percent of area residents who had an income in 2010, including 62 percent of whites, census records show.

    White and Hispanic employees who allege discrimination have found a deaf ear at Metro’s civil rights office, whose 17 employees are black. Until at least 1999, that office tracked complaints via a handwritten ledger on a series of taped-together sheets of paper, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times. The system “made determining statistics impossible,” said a civil rights employee from the time.

    In recent months, such antiquated record keeping has allowed employees to steal thousands of dollars that electronic systems easily could have detected — and in more than one case, a culture of complicity has kept prosecutors from trying those who were caught because they feared no clean witness or proper records could be found.

    “There’s a strong sense of nepotism, and it is the culture of Metro,” the civil rights employee said. “It was more of a buddy system than it was merit-based.”

    Metro did not respond to requests for information about workforce demographics.

    "There is no doubt affirmative action is destroying the US. The NYC MTA is an excellent example....."

    Same with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).

    Here is the formula:

    MSO (Minority staffed operations) + PSU (public sector unions) = IaCfC (Incompetence abetted by corruption followed by collapse), e.g. public education, Detroit.

    http://fosterspeak.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-detroit-riots-of-1967-and-its.html

    Thilo Sarrazin, ‘Deutschland schafft sich ab, Wie wir unser Land aufs Spiel setzen’, München 2010, ‘Germany destroys itself’, is about how immigration by low IQ immigrants destroy Germany.
    IQ is to a large degree heriditary, these immigrants have large numbers of children, intelligent German women often have no children, or just one.

    German industrialists say ‘wir exportieren Intelligenz’, what they mean is that German export rests on high IQ.
    Merkel fired Sarrazin, Berlin senator, member of the Board of the Bundesbank, capable economist, immediately.
    This was before her Willkommen, maybe she had planned it already ?

    About integrating the immigrants, on German tv I just once saw how jubilant a Syrian assistant car mechanic was presented to the public.

    With us in the Netherlands, not one immigrant, or second generation one, I can name who excelled in science.
    A lot of complaining by them about discrimination.
    At a local garage I experienced the know how, lack of it, of a mechanic of Moroccan descent.

    Just in crime these people seem to excel, the Netherlands is getting more and more outraged about criminal liquidations among themselves, alas these more and more are done stupidly, killing an innocent civilian.

    Ok, so if the bridge collapsed during a stress test, why were there vehicles and people below it who were crushed and killed?

    Which is surprising as the project seemed to have everything going for it. An all-female affirmative action team of engineers, a Cuban-American construction firm that had been sued numerous times for unsafe practices and ‘well connected’ in Miami politics (think Tony Soprano’s ‘environmental’ enterprise) …what could possibly go wrong? “We’re trying to build a bridge, not a wall”. Unfortunately, by collapsiing within a week it became a de facto wall.

    Granted, I’m not sure where he got the info from, but I’ve followed his blog for years and his analysis is generally informed and sound.

    In any event, the main issue is that when it comes to engineering projects or anything else where people’s lives are potentially at stake, ticking diversity boxes and pushing for Affirmative Action is just a lunatic and irresponsible idea.

    On a school construction site some thirty years or so, as the resident engineer, I declared that a foundation section that was over liquified was rejected and ordered it be removed and replaced. The contractor claimed it had passed the compression test and did not need to be replaced. It was in fact like a common grout used to fill in spaces between tiles. The contractor could have used any of the compression tests are never really tested, so one of those could have been used to disqualify the order. Failure to compression tests are well known in the industry and this may have happened at the Florida bridge. In my case it could have been the architect that wanted it to proceed as the project was behind schedule due to faulty ground testing. The school was being built on a former dump site, was about thirty feet higher than surrounding areas, and contained wrecked cars and trucks and all kinds of waste. Just sayin'

    Unless something has come out just recently, there has been no determination what caused the collapse. It could have been poor engineering or it could have been a shady concrete contractor. We don't know yet.

    As for closing the road, yes that should have been done. You will need to ask Florida DOT or Miami DOT why it wasn't.

    Is Miami a third world city that needs to be cleansed with fire? The answer to that is yes, but it still doesn't tell us why the bridge fell.

  31. When I applied to become a New York City fireman in 1962, there was a very rigorous physical, including having to press seventy five pounds with one arm and fifty pounds with the other, to get a perfect score (one’s performance was given a mark and was averaged with the written test). The written exam was composed of arithmetic, science and civics. To make a long story short, the physical has been entirely degraded in order to recruit more women and these days it is not graded, one needs of only do the minimum to qualify. The old written exam was declared non-job related (and racist by implication since it seemed to bar so many blacks from qualifying) and these days it is a sort of psychological test that one would have to be a complete moron not to know what answer is being prompted. Finally, last year a black recruit who failed the probationary firefighter training period three times was given a fourth chance. My, my, what diversity!

    The issue is not about the race or gender of who's doing what - but rather their competence to do so.

    Promoting diversity in art galleries, for example, might irritate but it won't cost lives.

    However, where life and limb is potentially at risk, be it in engineering or anything else, you want the most qualified to get the job, and not put other people's lives at risk so that various "diversity" boxes can be ticked.

    That specifically is the issue - not about being anti Cuban or anti Hispanic or anything else.

    If you're flying across the Atlantic you want a properly competent pilot at the controls, regardless of race or gender, and not someone who scraped through training after several failed attempts, but was allowed to continue because of their "diversity" credentials.

    Ok, so if the bridge collapsed during a stress test, why were there vehicles and people below it who were crushed and killed?

    Couldn't traffic have been held up during this test?

    In any event, the relevant comment from the blog author I linked to is this:

    Which is surprising as the project seemed to have everything going for it. An all-female affirmative action team of engineers, a Cuban-American construction firm that had been sued numerous times for unsafe practices and 'well connected' in Miami politics (think Tony Soprano's 'environmental' enterprise) ...what could possibly go wrong? "We're trying to build a bridge, not a wall". Unfortunately, by collapsiing within a week it became a de facto wall.

    Granted, I'm not sure where he got the info from, but I've followed his blog for years and his analysis is generally informed and sound.

    In any event, the main issue is that when it comes to engineering projects or anything else where people's lives are potentially at stake, ticking diversity boxes and pushing for Affirmative Action is just a lunatic and irresponsible idea.

    On a school construction site some thirty years or so, as the resident engineer, I declared that a foundation section that was over liquified was rejected and ordered it be removed and replaced. The contractor claimed it had passed the compression test and did not need to be replaced. It was in fact like a common grout used to fill in spaces between tiles. The contractor could have used any of the compression tests are never really tested, so one of those could have been used to disqualify the order. Failure to compression tests are well known in the industry and this may have happened at the Florida bridge. In my case it could have been the architect that wanted it to proceed as the project was behind schedule due to faulty ground testing. The school was being built on a former dump site, was about thirty feet higher than surrounding areas, and contained wrecked cars and trucks and all kinds of waste. Just sayin’

    Great title.

    South Africa underwent an almost overnight political transformation. One day a white, relatively well-educated minority dominated all institutions; the next, a skills-deficient black majority took over. Nevertheless, South Africa’s hollowed-out establishments are a harbinger of things to come in the U.S., where minorities will soon form a majority.

    I am one of the beneficiaries from Affirmative Action (AA). However, I agree with Ilana’s premise of merit and qualifications. I just want to say that as a Hispanic, I welcome the effort in AA insofar as it seeks to redress the centuries of slavery that the whites unleashed on such minorities as mine.
    Simon Bolivar the famous South American liberator said “It is easier to enslave people who has been free than to liberate those who have been slaves.” Bolivar’s words are true: people who have been slaves may spend their entire lives without realizing their freedom while nurturing their slaves’v consciousness. The way to break such a physiological phenomena is by using role models. There has to be minorities in power.
    In other words, AA is a form of righting the evils of the past. If your train is late because of people like me and you loose a few minutes just think about the people who spent their lives to make your white life easier and wealthy.

    Narrowly tailored affirmative action - ideally for example limited to African Americans - with a strong emphasis on the "affirmative action" aspect where we work on the pipeline to right past wrongs, without stealing from the weakest of the "majority" demography to give arbitrarily to another demography ... that, is something for which a compelling argument exists.

    We don't do that. Affirmative action favors upper middle class white women, immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean, already-well-off American blacks - but not American blacks who need help. It probably helps Hispanics although I'd like to see the data because I have my doubts, not least of all because unlike most of the commenters here, my own professional experience has led to no evidence that Hispanics need it. The educational, intellectual and work ethic capacity of Hispanics seems altogether, wholly, adequate, and any past un-righted wrong against Hispanics by the United States is remarkably poorly articulated. Certainly you don't mean to compare the Hispanic plight to the African American one?

    But what even the alternative media seems to have not picked up on is that there is a specific distance to which Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity goes and past which it makes no requirements of employers.

    That distance is not far enough for "diversity". In the name of diversity private enterprise is taking us to vistas never dreamed of by AA.

    And oddly: it will end, or split the country. I just have hope that by threatening to split the country first, its opponents will actually prevent it from ending, or splitting the country.

    There is only so much financial engineering the well-off of the majority can tailor to steal from the less well off of the majority to give as tribute to the minorities. It's not at all clear either that we can't find a way to offer minorities a better deal than that.

    No one has gauges or a dashboard, but I think we are testing the limits and entering the red zone.

    In France, AA is called 'positive discrimination' and that's what it is, discrimination. AA is a euphemism for discrimination against whites. Camouflaged as promoting the underprivileged, it deprives the white majority of equal opportunity. I wouldn't mind if AA provided additional enrolments at universities for minorities, in the context of the USA, something needs to be done to lift black Americans from misery and help them rejoin the mainstream. But as it is, AA / PD is used to mass-produce faithful servants of the current status quo and deprive the white popular masses of their own countries which they are entitled to rule.
    Please, cut us some slack with that "white are enslavers" canard. I am white, and neither I nor my parents nor my grandparents nor my grand grandparents nor the vast majority of whites have ever enslaved anyone. Gosh, my first expose in school was against Apartheid. I have grown up among minorities in a Paris suburb in France and there was no discrimination or racism against anyone. As a gifted kid with a sense of pedagogy, while immigrant myself, I was even on several occasions asked by my teachers to help out African immigrant children with learning to read French.
    Granted I don't know how it is in reality in the USA but I don't see where's the justice of depriving the children of hard working white Americans of the opportunity to study if they have the intellectual capacity to do so and I don't see how it can be good for a country to replace those with the intellectual capacity to study with members of minorities who don't have that capacity. The only way to improve the standards of living of a population is to produce wealth. I don't see how under-capable graduates can drive an economy to the benefit of all the people in a country.

    The last Republican president (Bush) and current one (Trump) both support affirmative action policies for “minorities” which today means anybody who isn’t a straight white male. Whites are going to have to start playing racial hardball on this matter.

    AA is and always has been a zero sum game that forcibly distributes jobs and other resources from whites to non-whites. It “levels the playing field” by engaging in blatant discrimination against white males and just when you think things can’t get worse we’re entering an era of mandated equality of outcomes by government intimidation, judicial activism and if those fail, large scale mob action.

    Illana needs to admit that if whites ever mount a serious attack on affirmative action policies it will be her kinsmen who will use their power and influence to beat us back and keep these policies in place since attacking white racial interests is their primary goal.

    I tend to think that the willingness of so many to accept a consolation prize of a promise (always in the future) of a "wall", may go a long way to make the existing GOP elite feel like they don't have to do anything.
    They can do nothing, inevitably, and even lose ground to Dems on policy, and for them: all will be juuuussst fine . Just keep propping up a President or Presidential candidate who keeps attention on the wall.

    The rubes will buy it. Just look.

    Stopping the advancement of diversity quotas would require a credible threat to split the republic - and may actually even take splitting the republic.

    Who has the stomach for that?

    It would take nothing less than: making it the one, only, single issue - all other issues be damned. Failing that, nothing's going to stop this train.

    I was a young adult when AA began. The Republicans were as enthusiastic about it as the democrats were. Also, please remember that more Republican senators and congressmen voted for the 1964 and 1968 civil rights acts than Democrats did.

    The 1968 civil rights affirmative action act did not go into effect until January 1969 by which time Nixon the Republican was in office and congress was majority republican.

    AA was effected from 1969 to 1973 when we had a Republican president who appointed the people who ran the EEOC. Clarence Thomas, regean’s so called conservative appointee to the Supreme Court was head of the EEOC who abolished the PACE exam designed to screen out college grads who could not read at a high school

    The last Republican president (Bush) and current one (Trump) both support affirmative action policies for "minorities" which today means anybody who isn't a straight white male. Whites are going to have to start playing racial hardball on this matter.

    AA is and always has been a zero sum game that forcibly distributes jobs and other resources from whites to non-whites. It "levels the playing field" by engaging in blatant discrimination against white males and just when you think things can't get worse we're entering an era of mandated equality of outcomes by government intimidation, judicial activism and if those fail, large scale mob action.

    Illana needs to admit that if whites ever mount a serious attack on affirmative action policies it will be her kinsmen who will use their power and influence to beat us back and keep these policies in place since attacking white racial interests is their primary goal.

    The Republican Party never ever opposed affirmative action. The federal entry level exam for professional and administrative positions, PACE was eliminated during the Regean administration.

    Only people with bachelor’s degrees could take that exam. College graduates. The exam was basically reading comphrension and English grammar and composition, no math.

    It was no different from a standard high school exit exam but for college. Graduates.

    The exam was eliminated because blacks college grads could not pass a basic 12 grade level treading and composition test.

    Few here read German, I think, pity.
    In 1919 the artificial state Tsjechoslovakia was formed.
    This state had most of the industries of the former Habsburg empire, to a large extent run by Germans.
    The Tsjechs discriminated the Germans, in the debates on this the Germans often reminded the Tsjechs that the industries could not be operated without Germans.
    An interesting example is the button industry, the Germans operating these industries were driven out, production in Tsjechoslovakia came to a standstill, those driven to Germany set up thriving industries there.

    Fritz Peter Habel, ´Die Sudeten-Deutschen’, 1992, 2002, München

    Translation 'when the Germans had left, what happened after they were driven out'.

    There are similar stories on how agriculture deteriorated in Poland after the Germans had been driven out.

    If the tape got ripped by increase of the crack the bridge was unsafe.

    Here is the formula:

    MSO (Minority staffed operations) + PSU (public sector unions) = IaCfC (Incompetence abetted by corruption followed by collapse), e.g. public education, Detroit.

    You beat me to mentioning the Washington, DC Metro system among the public transportation systems destroyed by promoting incompetent non-whites (blacks in this instance) over more qualified whites.

    A few years back the Washington Times had a great article about the culture within WMATA that has caused its collapse. Here’s just the beginning of that excellent article:

    [MORE]

    Ninety-seven percent of the bus and train operators at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are black, with only six white women out of more than 3,000 drivers, according to Metro documents — a lack of diversity at one of the region’s largest employers that has led to an acknowledgment of failure in affirmative-action documents and spawned a series of lawsuits.

    The homogeneity, interviews with dozens of current and former Metro workers indicated, is a proxy to a clubby culture of favoritism in which merit has little to do with promotions, and accountability, such as noting safety violations, is a career death knell. In typical examples, court and Metro records show, a black man who spent eight years in prison for dealing PCP was promoted to a high-level management position soon after his release, and whites in the same positions as blacks with far less seniority are inexplicably paid less.

    With Metro’s budget chronically strained and reports of mismanagement coming more regularly than trains, interviews and internal records depict a likely root: an environment in which hardworking employees are actively excluded and those who rise are those willing to do the bare minimum — never causing a stir by flagging rampant safety violations, reporting malfeasance or proposing improvements.

    “When the accident happened in 2009, I called a supervisor and said, ‘Is this the one we all dreaded?’ The way workers do their jobs, we all knew it was a matter of time. … The inept get promoted, and the capable get buried. Smart people were put in the corner, ostracized and given nothing to do,” said Christine Townsend, who sued Metro for discrimination and won.

    It is a culture in which a white male engineer near completion of a Ph.D. was passed over for a management position in favor of a black man who was barely literate, multiple staffers said.

    “The average rider wouldn’t believe the things that go on. There are so many easy things we could do to make the system better,” a station manager said. “But they’d never put me in charge because they know I’d make sure others actually did their jobs. They don’t want change. It’s go along to get along.”

    Metro is a quasi-public agency that receives funding from the federal government, Maryland, Virginia and local jurisdictions to operate a regional bus and rail transportation system in the national capital area, but is not beholden to rules that apply to fully governmental entities. With a $2.5 billion operating and capital budget for fiscal 2012, Metrorail serves 86 stations and has 106 miles of track, while Metrobus serves the nation’s capital with 1,500 buses.

    Metro’s affirmative-action plan notes that the 1.4 percent of its bus and train operators who are Hispanic and the 25 percent who are female of any race are “less than reasonably expected.” It does not make note of the 1.5 percent who are white.

    Even in entry-level occupations typically dominated by Hispanics, there are virtually none at Metro. Only one laborer out of 67 is Hispanic; of 540 landscapers, carpenters and cleaners, only 22 are Hispanic. In the national capital region, Hispanics make up 13 percent of adults and blacks comprise 25 percent; white women constitute 29 percent.

    “The odds of such a disparity occurring by chance are statistically infinitesimal,” Ronald A. Schmidt, a lawyer representing 12 white women exploring a class-action lawsuit, wrote in a 2003 letter. “There appears to be an entrenched network of African-American employees at WMATA that is able to steer jobs, promotion, training and other career enhancing benefit to persons of their own racial or ethnic group.”

    The average Metro worker had a $60,000 salary, which rises to $69,000 including overtime. That is more than 71 percent of area residents who had an income in 2010, including 62 percent of whites, census records show.

    White and Hispanic employees who allege discrimination have found a deaf ear at Metro’s civil rights office, whose 17 employees are black. Until at least 1999, that office tracked complaints via a handwritten ledger on a series of taped-together sheets of paper, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times. The system “made determining statistics impossible,” said a civil rights employee from the time.

    In recent months, such antiquated record keeping has allowed employees to steal thousands of dollars that electronic systems easily could have detected — and in more than one case, a culture of complicity has kept prosecutors from trying those who were caught because they feared no clean witness or proper records could be found.

    “There’s a strong sense of nepotism, and it is the culture of Metro,” the civil rights employee said. “It was more of a buddy system than it was merit-based.”

    Metro did not respond to requests for information about workforce demographics.

    I still stand amazed that white women are TOTALLY OK with someone coming from ANOTHER NATION, even LEGALLY (let alone illegally), who can cross the border, and immediately have HIRING preference OVER THEM…(not that I agree with white women having A/A, that’s a scam too, but a topic for another time)…but a 7th Generation Spaniard, who’s family are doctors, lawyers, and former slave owners, can come here and be treated like a descendant of slaves–”brown people” (even if they are obviously white).

    Likewise, an illiterate illegal can cross over, from a Latin American country that has ZERO connection to the culture or history of the United States–never suffered ANYTHING, and he or she is automatically given preference once “in the system” (including college entrances). That’s what the democrats are selling to white women. And white women are totally ok with that.

    That’s totally cool with blacks, I get that–they don’t care and aren’t thinking about the future (or seeing it). But white women(?), they sit back and vote for this and agree with this. Their own kids will take a backseat in everything from hiring preferences, to college, to other federal, local and state benefits.

Every damn thing he said during the campaign trail was a lie it seems. Forget about leaving the middle east alone (that seems almost impossible given the amount of zionist "influence" in the WH) he couldn't even get the needed funding for the effin wall from the CONgress.

    So how do you voting will change anything? Sort of a revolution, nothing can change anything now. We've sailed too far down this river to change course peacefully now.

    Good observations. Women are generally more present-oriented than men, which (along with their emotionalism) explains much of their support for liberal policies, which generally discount (if not disregard) the future and are designed to alleviate some sort of short-term concern. (I believe Nietzsche made similar points about women’s time preference, to use Austrian Econ terminology.)
    , @Sin City Milla
    Women generally don't object because they simply are not subject to the same economic pressures as men. In the back of their minds if the egg hits the fan they know that they can marry n be supported by a man, or get pregnant n go on welfare, or prostitute. N there are a vast network of shelters n orgs that accept women in all of these circumstances. So no matter how many illegals cross the border, it won't harm white women but actually increases their "customer" base.

    What white women don't seem to get is that race trumps gender (witness Hillarys dismal loss to Obama). The current political purge of white males from all positions of influence will eventually be extended to white women. If they aren't in love with the idea of playing third or fourth wife to an immigrant Pakistani diversity hire who just displaced her from her job, they might want to start thinking about the significance of the all-black jury releasing OJ, n how to halt n roll back the diversity scam.
    , @grapesoda
    White women are the main beneficiaries of formal and informal affirmative action so they have no reason to be against it. All throughout American corporations and academia, there is a huge push to get more women into higher level positions.

    True, a woman with more diversity points and equal ability is preferable to a mere white woman, but often affirmative action just means a white woman winning out over a white man, because white women are considered "diverse," whereas white men are not. So we tend to see WM only in positions that require a lot of expertise, ie a diverse candidate of equal competence cannot be found, and anyway the quotas are already padded with lower level diverse employees.

    So WW get to play it both ways. They benefit from "white privilege," (AKA competence, intelligence, education), as well as "minority privilege." At present the AA policies favor them, but in time the WW will also start to be considered not diverse enough. They will show increasing racial solidarity as it becomes clear NO whites are welcome within the Democratic Party. That a majority of WW voted for Trump is a sign of things to come.

    Sorry, what's your point?

    The issue is not about the race or gender of who's doing what - but rather their competence to do so.

    Promoting diversity in art galleries, for example, might irritate but it won't cost lives.

    However, where life and limb is potentially at risk, be it in engineering or anything else, you want the most qualified to get the job, and not put other people's lives at risk so that various "diversity" boxes can be ticked.

    That specifically is the issue - not about being anti Cuban or anti Hispanic or anything else.

    If you're flying across the Atlantic you want a properly competent pilot at the controls, regardless of race or gender, and not someone who scraped through training after several failed attempts, but was allowed to continue because of their "diversity" credentials.

    Seems to me that your quarrel is more with your Grand-daddy’s old nepotizm and bribery, rather than your daddy’s affirmative action.

    There is no doubt affirmative action is destroying the US. The NYC MTA is an excellent example where the city went on a rampage of hiring low IQ, minority affirmative action "workers" in recent years. As the more experienced mechanics and technicians, as well as managers, retire, the new breed can barely keep the trains running. It can't get better, because as the experienced mechanics retire, the men who are supposed to train the younger guys are clueless. And that's just one example from my morning and afternoon commute.

    My understanding is that the NYC transit union is a militant Caribbean affair. In DC, 97% of the bus and train operators are blacks and marginal black engineers are promoted over whites with PhDs. This has resulted in a predictable outcome. The deteroration of Metro.

    Ok, so if the bridge collapsed during a stress test, why were there vehicles and people below it who were crushed and killed?

    Couldn't traffic have been held up during this test?

    In any event, the relevant comment from the blog author I linked to is this:

    Which is surprising as the project seemed to have everything going for it. An all-female affirmative action team of engineers, a Cuban-American construction firm that had been sued numerous times for unsafe practices and 'well connected' in Miami politics (think Tony Soprano's 'environmental' enterprise) ...what could possibly go wrong? "We're trying to build a bridge, not a wall". Unfortunately, by collapsiing within a week it became a de facto wall.

    Granted, I'm not sure where he got the info from, but I've followed his blog for years and his analysis is generally informed and sound.

    In any event, the main issue is that when it comes to engineering projects or anything else where people's lives are potentially at stake, ticking diversity boxes and pushing for Affirmative Action is just a lunatic and irresponsible idea.

    Unless something has come out just recently, there has been no determination what caused the collapse. It could have been poor engineering or it could have been a shady concrete contractor. We don’t know yet.

    As for closing the road, yes that should have been done. You will need to ask Florida DOT or Miami DOT why it wasn’t.

    Is Miami a third world city that needs to be cleansed with fire? The answer to that is yes, but it still doesn’t tell us why the bridge fell.

    The bridge was to be a “signature design” that brought attention (not the kind that the collapse is bringing) to the FIU campus and its Accelerated Bridge Design program.

    Excerpted from the MCM / Figg technical proposal design document (all 173 pages, including drawings, in link below).

    The superstructure shape for the new signature pedestrian bridge is innovative and one-of-a-kind. We have re-invented the traditional I-beam in a magnificent scale with a special transformation of an open truss down the middle, improving both its functionality and form for a 30’ wide path.

    The magnificent singular structural concrete shape of I-beam features this one of a kind open all elements with both structural purpose and aesthetic form. The central open truss provides bridge stiffness and also serves as unique space [for public activities].

    I'm not American, but as I understand it Affirmative Action was introduced to help the Black descendants of the Atlantic slave trade - and them only.

    However, it has morphed into an AA program for non-Whites in general, including all those who have nothing whatsoever to do with said slave trade and are not the descendants of Black slaves.

    In a country increasingly becoming ethnically "darker", clearly this is hardly to the benefit of the White native-born population.

    Mercer gets too much of her information from extremist sites on the dark web which promotes two false narratives, the narrative of white genocide and the narrative which says most ills in America can be pinned down to affirmative action. In Florida a tragedy occurred when a bridge collapsed. The fact that none of us can recall the last time such a major bridge collapsed indicates it is an extremely rare occurrence, probably once every several generations. I am an engineer by training and I know that every engineering project has a very small probability of catastrophic failure. In my field -electronic engineering, a catastrophic failure will usually lead to a circuit being blown and burnt out, no big deal. In structural engineering a catastrophic failure can have tragic consequences but the probability of such an occurrence can never be pushed down to zero.
    Mercer has no way of knowing who the employees of the Florida lift company who designed the bridge were but in the manner of the worst kind of hard right village idiot she assumes the root cause was affirmative action hire and linking the tragedy to her paranoid racialist worldview. Incidentally, not that I expect a foreigner like Mercer to know much of American history, affirmative action is not some gigantic conspiracy concocted democrats but was put in place by Richard Nixon, a republican president.
    It is perfectly legitimate to ask whether affirmative action is relevant in contemporary America. However, Mercer, a resentful and envious immigrant and Mercer, a cretinous lover of white supremacy is the wrong person to ask the question.

    I’m not American, but as I understand it Affirmative Action was introduced to help the Black descendants of the Atlantic slave trade – and them only.

    However, it has morphed into an AA program for non-Whites in general, including all those who have nothing whatsoever to do with said slave trade and are not the descendants of Black slaves.

    In a country increasingly becoming ethnically “darker”, clearly this is hardly to the benefit of the White native-born population.

    Actually, if you think about it, it’s totally outrageous.

    I don't know when or if we will ever turn the corner, but it is (per my previous post) amazing to watch. I guess you have cucky whites that still live, in their mind, in some slave-driving, cave-dwelling enclave where those sad-faced immigrants from other lands deserve whatever "we" can give them because of all of "our" past racism...even when, historically, those people have ZERO connection to the American past, our history, our culture, or struggles as a nation.

    An illegal Somali Muslim can show up, get citizenship (yes it happens) and immediately start applying for jobs as a "black" person...just an an immigrant from Bolivia, legal or not, can show up and start applying for jobs, and receive affirmative action as though their ancestors were discriminated against in the US.

    Cracks me up when I hear South Americans get all (fake) indignant saying things like "Latino (or Hispanic) is a name the US Government came up with", when (A) those two names are based upon the Latin language and historical usage, and refer to all things Latin or "Hispano" (Iberian), and (B) Hey dummy, that's the ONLY REASON you get affirmative action--because you are lumped into one big group. There was never a great call for affirmative action for say, Argentinians...or Peruvians, or Hondurans.

    Like most things, there was never a vote.

    " ... whites who like being reassured that they're better than the browns and the blacks. "

    For most whites who've grown weary of the continuous anti-white psyop it's not about supremacy or domination. We have decided that enforced racial diversity is a disaster. Look at what the flood of Africans and Arabs have brought to Europe: chaos and destruction.

    We just prefer to live amongst our own, and the relative peace that it brings.

    Southern farmers didn’t live with other Whites. They lived with their black slaves. Nowadays White farmers live surrounded by illegal Hispanic Indian workers and their families on welfare.

    They send their White children to schools that are 70 to 80 percent 80 IQ Hispanic Indian.

    Cheap labor rules over ethnicity and even their children’s schools.

    And there are almost no Jewish farmers in this country.

  75. Diversity and Affirmative Action in a Nutshell:

    Most people making up their minds are not doing so based on a value system or a rational argument.

    Most people look at what goes down, what that means about power relationships, and they adjust their actions and words accordingly.

    So – say there’s this plot of land with a house on it – you have the deed. Another party, a corporation, CEO, city government or the feds come and say: we are going to revoke your deed and give it to someone else, there will be no compensation.

    You proceed to argue with them. You use values, reason, logic. You publish articles. People post comments agreeing with you.

    The other party takes away your property and gives it to someone else.

    That’s what’s been observed.

    Now: diversity and affirmative action.

    There is a thing of economic value: economic opportunity. For various reasons (signaling their virtue, affiliation, loyalty, tribute, etc., whatever) a stronger party takes away your economic opportunity and gives it to someone else because: skin-color, or reproductive apparatus.

    You proceed to argue with them. You use values, reason, logic. You publish articles. People post comments agreeing with you.

    The property transfer goes forward apace.

    That’s what’s been observed.
    People adjust their actions, and words, accordingly.

    The sad part is Whites are allowing this.

    Actually, Whites did this. The 1968 affirmative action civil rights act was made law by a White male senate and more than 90 percent White male congress.

    An all White male Supreme Court ruled against hiring of qualified Whites in favor of extremely unqualified blacks in the Griggs vs Duke Power and kaiser vs Weber cases.

    Kaiser vs Weber was about the fact that Kaiser Steel mills required that applicants for foremen have a high school diploma.

    All White male supreme courts ruled against merit hiring in favor of unqualified non White hiring

    It was a White male government that did it. There were very few, almost no White women senators, cabinet members judges congress critters or even attorneys 1968 to 1973 when affirmative action was implemented.

    The maddening part is the Republican party has dropped opposition to anti-white affirmative action policies from its party platform altogether. They used to at least mock it and pay lip service to its repeal until sometime during the Dubya's first term. Another example of left wing drift of the establishment right.

    The last Republican president (Bush) and current one (Trump) both support affirmative action policies for "minorities" which today means anybody who isn't a straight white male. Whites are going to have to start playing racial hardball on this matter.

    AA is and always has been a zero sum game that forcibly distributes jobs and other resources from whites to non-whites. It "levels the playing field" by engaging in blatant discrimination against white males and just when you think things can't get worse we're entering an era of mandated equality of outcomes by government intimidation, judicial activism and if those fail, large scale mob action.

    Illana needs to admit that if whites ever mount a serious attack on affirmative action policies it will be her kinsmen who will use their power and influence to beat us back and keep these policies in place since attacking white racial interests is their primary goal.

    The maddening part is the Republican party has dropped opposition to anti-white affirmative action policies from its party platform altogether

    I tend to think that the willingness of so many to accept a consolation prize of a promise (always in the future) of a “wall”, may go a long way to make the existing GOP elite feel like they don’t have to do anything.
    They can do nothing, inevitably, and even lose ground to Dems on policy, and for them: all will be juuuussst fine . Just keep propping up a President or Presidential candidate who keeps attention on the wall.

    The rubes will buy it. Just look.

    Stopping the advancement of diversity quotas would require a credible threat to split the republic – and may actually even take splitting the republic.

    Who has the stomach for that?

    It would take nothing less than: making it the one, only, single issue – all other issues be damned. Failing that, nothing’s going to stop this train.

    And everyone knows it – that’s why they only allow themselves to be seen supporting it.

    There is no doubt affirmative action is destroying the US. The NYC MTA is an excellent example where the city went on a rampage of hiring low IQ, minority affirmative action "workers" in recent years. As the more experienced mechanics and technicians, as well as managers, retire, the new breed can barely keep the trains running. It can't get better, because as the experienced mechanics retire, the men who are supposed to train the younger guys are clueless. And that's just one example from my morning and afternoon commute.

    I disagree in part with “affirmative action is destroying …”(should say America) not the USA, the USA does not exist any more in domestic America it is fighting wars in far away places.
    The cause of the general destruction about which you complain results from inappropriate strategy to bring about affirmative action targets. You send a bright person to Harvard and he or she finishes in three years, affirmative action was never meant to grant average or unprepared students a 6 year degree in 3 years, it was meant to educate the average among us to the highest levels each of us is personally capable to achieve; taking or scoring high on test is not a destruction eliminating achievement. In fact, in my 75 years three things I noticed a) the truly bright students refused to stay in college long enough to get a degree, 2) the really innovative high energy contributors generally refuse to get a license to peal the dough off of donut holes or to play underwater tiddly-winks or to build high rise buildings or to build airplanes ships or rockets, they just do it. No days, no one will fund or allow the true genius to contribute for several reasons: the state cannot get rich off of unlicensed activities and true inventions will put monopoly powered corporations out of business over night. Believe me the reason for a license is to be sure the genius does not put the corporations that support the politicians out of business; just as the degrees are required as a condition precedent to being hired into jobs that teach and give good life-time experience. Employers don’t want smart kids, they want well trained kids.

    I also disagree that the best among us, can be discovered by an entrance test. What makes the prediction of degree versus job success is access. Those without degrees cannot get the jobs to prove their worth.

    The education institutions and the society that regulates it, intentionally under educate those who it will not allow, or that it does not want, to succeed. How can you keep an educated slave happy?

    Education content for minorities and most of the mainstream majority (wealthy class excluded) is highly limited and experience and opportunity devoid. True the course numbers are the same, the text books are the same, and even the test might be the same, but the content and revealing opportunities and learning experiences that good instruction provide are excluded. I coined this phase in 1973 “Education is a bureaucracy, learning is a biological process”. In 1983 the bottom message of my email read “Molecular biology and genetics not medicine will find the cause and cures for cancer”. Quality, experience filled education is only available to the wealthy; it takes millions to educate a pilot, and it takes even more to educate a good space engineer ( no wealth to pay, no ticket will be issued that will allow the experience of a quality education ). Exceptions are the very few extremely talented persons, they are like the good looking poor trash girl, she is good enough to marry into wealth, so to with the few really talented poor they will be trained to work for one of the Pharaoh companies (Tillerson may be an example). These very talented are given free passes.
    As for the bridge in Florida, engineering software today is so good, it can produce error free design results, better even than a very competent engineering and general contracting firm. Even the most under educated among us, can enter the data and use the computer software to process the data into quality plans and specifications. The real cause of the bridge failure, seems to be pilot error, maybe negligence; the decision not to block traffic until the weekend to fix the discovered threat was fatal.

The way to break such a physiological phenomena is by using role models. There has to be minorities in power.

    Narrowly tailored affirmative action – ideally for example limited to African Americans – with a strong emphasis on the “affirmative action” aspect where we work on the pipeline to right past wrongs, without stealing from the weakest of the “majority” demography to give arbitrarily to another demography … that, is something for which a compelling argument exists.

    We don’t do that. Affirmative action favors upper middle class white women, immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean, already-well-off American blacks – but not American blacks who need help. It probably helps Hispanics although I’d like to see the data because I have my doubts, not least of all because unlike most of the commenters here, my own professional experience has led to no evidence that Hispanics need it. The educational, intellectual and work ethic capacity of Hispanics seems altogether, wholly, adequate, and any past un-righted wrong against Hispanics by the United States is remarkably poorly articulated. Certainly you don’t mean to compare the Hispanic plight to the African American one?

    But what even the alternative media seems to have not picked up on is that there is a specific distance to which Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity goes and past which it makes no requirements of employers.

    That distance is not far enough for “diversity”. In the name of diversity private enterprise is taking us to vistas never dreamed of by AA.

    And oddly: it will end, or split the country. I just have hope that by threatening to split the country first, its opponents will actually prevent it from ending, or splitting the country.

    There is only so much financial engineering the well-off of the majority can tailor to steal from the less well off of the majority to give as tribute to the minorities. It’s not at all clear either that we can’t find a way to offer minorities a better deal than that.

    No one has gauges or a dashboard, but I think we are testing the limits and entering the red zone.

    The Republican Party never ever opposed affirmative action. The federal entry level exam for professional and administrative positions, PACE was eliminated during the Regean administration.

    Only people with bachelor’s degrees could take that exam. College graduates. The exam was basically reading comphrension and English grammar and composition, no math.

    It was no different from a standard high school exit exam but for college. Graduates.

    The exam was eliminated because blacks college grads could not pass a basic 12 grade level treading and composition test.

    Actually, Whites did this. The 1968 affirmative action civil rights act was made law by a White male senate and more than 90 percent White male congress.

    An all White male Supreme Court ruled against hiring of qualified Whites in favor of extremely unqualified blacks in the Griggs vs Duke Power and kaiser vs Weber cases.

    Kaiser vs Weber was about the fact that Kaiser Steel mills required that applicants for foremen have a high school diploma.

    All White male supreme courts ruled against merit hiring in favor of unqualified non White hiring

    It was a White male government that did it. There were very few, almost no White women senators, cabinet members judges congress critters or even attorneys 1968 to 1973 when affirmative action was implemented.

    Stop blaming White women guys, blame your fathers and grandfathers generation, some times known as the
    Greatest Generation because it won WW2.

    Diversity and Affirmative Action in a Nutshell:

    Most people making up their minds are not doing so based on a value system or a rational argument.

    Most people look at what goes down, what that means about power relationships, and they adjust their actions and words accordingly.

    So - say there's this plot of land with a house on it - you have the deed. Another party, a corporation, CEO, city government or the feds come and say: we are going to revoke your deed and give it to someone else, there will be no compensation.

    You proceed to argue with them. You use values, reason, logic. You publish articles. People post comments agreeing with you.

    The other party takes away your property and gives it to someone else.

    That's what's been observed.

    Now: diversity and affirmative action.

    There is a thing of economic value: economic opportunity. For various reasons (signaling their virtue, affiliation, loyalty, tribute, etc., whatever) a stronger party takes away your economic opportunity and gives it to someone else because: skin-color, or reproductive apparatus.

    You proceed to argue with them. You use values, reason, logic. You publish articles. People post comments agreeing with you.

    The property transfer goes forward apace.

    That's what's been observed.
    People adjust their actions, and words, accordingly.

    Courts have ruled that jobs are property. You are right that affirmative action taking Jobs from Whites is no different than taking real and personal property from Whites.

    Simon Bolivar the famous South American liberator said "It is easier to enslave people who has been free than to liberate those who have been slaves." Bolivar's words are true: people who have been slaves may spend their entire lives without realizing their freedom while nurturing their slaves'v consciousness. The way to break such a physiological phenomena is by using role models. There has to be minorities in power.
    In other words, AA is a form of righting the evils of the past. If your train is late because of people like me and you loose a few minutes just think about the people who spent their lives to make your white life easier and wealthy.

    I'm not American, but as I understand it Affirmative Action was introduced to help the Black descendants of the Atlantic slave trade - and them only.

    However, it has morphed into an AA program for non-Whites in general, including all those who have nothing whatsoever to do with said slave trade and are not the descendants of Black slaves.

    In a country increasingly becoming ethnically "darker", clearly this is hardly to the benefit of the White native-born population.

    Actually, if you think about it, it's totally outrageous.

    Meanwhile, I’m still waiting to find out how black athletics excel at basketball and football with no affirmative action program in place to make it happen.

    Narrowly tailored affirmative action - ideally for example limited to African Americans - with a strong emphasis on the "affirmative action" aspect where we work on the pipeline to right past wrongs, without stealing from the weakest of the "majority" demography to give arbitrarily to another demography ... that, is something for which a compelling argument exists.

    We don't do that. Affirmative action favors upper middle class white women, immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean, already-well-off American blacks - but not American blacks who need help. It probably helps Hispanics although I'd like to see the data because I have my doubts, not least of all because unlike most of the commenters here, my own professional experience has led to no evidence that Hispanics need it. The educational, intellectual and work ethic capacity of Hispanics seems altogether, wholly, adequate, and any past un-righted wrong against Hispanics by the United States is remarkably poorly articulated. Certainly you don't mean to compare the Hispanic plight to the African American one?

    But what even the alternative media seems to have not picked up on is that there is a specific distance to which Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity goes and past which it makes no requirements of employers.

    That distance is not far enough for "diversity". In the name of diversity private enterprise is taking us to vistas never dreamed of by AA.

    And oddly: it will end, or split the country. I just have hope that by threatening to split the country first, its opponents will actually prevent it from ending, or splitting the country.

    There is only so much financial engineering the well-off of the majority can tailor to steal from the less well off of the majority to give as tribute to the minorities. It's not at all clear either that we can't find a way to offer minorities a better deal than that.

    No one has gauges or a dashboard, but I think we are testing the limits and entering the red zone.

    “any past un-righted wrong against Hispanics by the United States is remarkably poorly articulated.”

    That’s true. That whole invasion of Mexico thing was so long ago and the reconquista has regained territory as far east as South Carolina, so it would be hard to make a case for reparations.

    Mistral has tried, though. He wrote that eloquent thingy about the train and all.

    One aspect of the problem is we can't figure out what to call the problem. My sense is its problematic to call it "affirmative action". The worst transgressions are by private industry not the fed (not letting the feds off here, just sayin') and private industry goes far beyond the requirements of legal-edict affirmative action under the banner of "diversity".

    Industry is clever too. Affirmative action, the law, needn't mean hiring, it can mean "action", like efforts affirmatively undertaken to educate and prepare minority candidates or effort to be sure those candidates are in an applicant pool.

    Diversity really means the worst people imagine of affirmative action, i.e.: quotas, but its worse because private industry is so good at spinning it: "we have achieved our diversity 'goals'".

    Not quotas, "goals". Oh, and managers know they'd better hit their goals.

    As far as I can tell this will not stop, can't be argued with, will only get worse and gets worse if you do argue with it because arguing or reasoning telegraphs you aren't willing to fight when something is being stolen by force.

    The discussion needs to change to: how do we signal a willingness and intent to fragment the republic if this isn't stopped?

    That signal: may stop it. Then no fragmentation required. Arguing with it just makes it stronger.

    The problem is called “diversity”. The people causing the problem are the ones promoting “diversity” in any way, shape or form. No country which has “diversity” as the defacto state religion will survive for very long.

    Airstrip One is a good example of where it’s all heading. Without a first or second amendment to slow big brother they’ve pulled out all stops there. At this rate it won’t be long before Whites from there are washing up on French shores trying to get away from the insanity.

    I still stand amazed that white women are TOTALLY OK with someone coming from ANOTHER NATION, even LEGALLY (let alone illegally), who can cross the border, and immediately have HIRING preference OVER THEM...(not that I agree with white women having A/A, that's a scam too, but a topic for another time)...but a 7th Generation Spaniard, who's family are doctors, lawyers, and former slave owners, can come here and be treated like a descendant of slaves--"brown people" (even if they are obviously white).

    Likewise, an illiterate illegal can cross over, from a Latin American country that has ZERO connection to the culture or history of the United States--never suffered ANYTHING, and he or she is automatically given preference once "in the system" (including college entrances). That's what the democrats are selling to white women. And white women are totally ok with that.

    That's totally cool with blacks, I get that--they don't care and aren't thinking about the future (or seeing it). But white women(?), they sit back and vote for this and agree with this. Their own kids will take a backseat in everything from hiring preferences, to college, to other federal, local and state benefits.

    A whole bunch of white women tried to “save” themselves in the false hope that DJT would try to change it all. Has he?

    He sits like a lame duck waiting for the Izzy firters and the cultural marxists to tell him what to do. And to top it off he does that with a poker face. Every damn thing he said during the campaign trail was a lie it seems. Forget about leaving the middle east alone (that seems almost impossible given the amount of zionist “influence” in the WH) he couldn’t even get the needed funding for the effin wall from the CONgress.

    So how do you voting will change anything? Sort of a revolution, nothing can change anything now. We’ve sailed too far down this river to change course peacefully now.

    The superstructure shape for the new signature pedestrian bridge is innovative and one-of-a-kind. We have re-invented the traditional I-beam in a magnificent scale with a special transformation of an open truss down the middle, improving both its functionality and form for a 30’ wide path.

    In France, AA is called ‘positive discrimination’ and that’s what it is, discrimination. AA is a euphemism for discrimination against whites. Camouflaged as promoting the underprivileged, it deprives the white majority of equal opportunity. I wouldn’t mind if AA provided additional enrolments at universities for minorities, in the context of the USA, something needs to be done to lift black Americans from misery and help them rejoin the mainstream. But as it is, AA / PD is used to mass-produce faithful servants of the current status quo and deprive the white popular masses of their own countries which they are entitled to rule.
    Please, cut us some slack with that “white are enslavers” canard. I am white, and neither I nor my parents nor my grandparents nor my grand grandparents nor the vast majority of whites have ever enslaved anyone. Gosh, my first expose in school was against Apartheid. I have grown up among minorities in a Paris suburb in France and there was no discrimination or racism against anyone. As a gifted kid with a sense of pedagogy, while immigrant myself, I was even on several occasions asked by my teachers to help out African immigrant children with learning to read French.
    Granted I don’t know how it is in reality in the USA but I don’t see where’s the justice of depriving the children of hard working white Americans of the opportunity to study if they have the intellectual capacity to do so and I don’t see how it can be good for a country to replace those with the intellectual capacity to study with members of minorities who don’t have that capacity. The only way to improve the standards of living of a population is to produce wealth. I don’t see how under-capable graduates can drive an economy to the benefit of all the people in a country.

Given their genetic constraints, we have done an admirable job of uplifting those we can and making the most of the ones we cannot.

    The problem is called "diversity". The people causing the problem are the ones promoting "diversity" in any way, shape or form. No country which has "diversity" as the defacto state religion will survive for very long.

    Airstrip One is a good example of where it's all heading. Without a first or second amendment to slow big brother they've pulled out all stops there. At this rate it won't be long before Whites from there are washing up on French shores trying to get away from the insanity.

  108. America’s elite colleges have never been a place for America’s best and brightest, nor the cultivator of new ideas. Almost since their inception they have been the enforcer of the status quo, rubber stamping diplomas of the scions of the elites, legitimizing and peddling whatever ideology that is fashionable among the elites to the masses. They are places to perpetuate elitism, not to disrupt it.

    Thus when the WASPs were in power, Jews were the barbarians kept outside the gates. Now that Jews are in power, it is they and those they deemed not true competition, i.e. the blacks, browns, and homos, plus whites and asians most willing to drink the liberal kool-aid a.k.a. libart majors, who are inside the gates, everyone else is kept out.

    The problem starts and ends with our elite colleges. As long as these institutions are around perpetuating elitism, America will always be enslaved by the elites. Whoever controls Harvard is the group currently in power. Jews are loath to relinquish their stranglehold on Harvard, they know the Asians are knocking at the door wanting in. The WASPs were idiots for letting the Jews in, Jews won’t make the same mistake with the new barbarians at the gate. The only way to truly disrupt the status quo is to completely do away with the prestige accorded these institutions. Unfortunately that’s unlikely to happen with the country continuing to be flooded with Ivy worshipping Asians. If anything they only further bolster the elitism of these schools by flocking to them and begging to be let in — another reason why we urgently need to curtail Asian immigration.

    The Anglo Saxon infatuation with Jews is truly something to behold. If Oliver Cromwell had not allowed the Jews back into England in 1656 (after King Edward the first had expelled them in 1290 AD),the western world would not be experiencing all these problems.

    The monumental stupidity of the Anglo Saxon elites, in yielding power to the Jews, over the last several centuries will result in the total and complete destruction of Anglo Saxon culture and civilization.

    C'mon.

    Whites have been shitting on each other since the dawn of time. White only became awaken when there's a possibility of becoming a 'minority' sooner. Whites have never been united, NEVER. Otherwise, you wouldn't see many European countries to begin with, rather you'd see a unified Europe. EU is just a joke to counter-weigh the influence of Asian giants.

    So next time when you'd come across a White looking guy on the street, go and hug him, and you'd realize he was mixed with Iranian and you feel disgusted with the idea of welcoming a mixed blood.

    Or you'd come across very good looking Whites on the street, thought the superior blood was divine and pure, find out later that she was mixed with Uzbekistan.

    Or you'd come across White guy with crooked teeth, freckles and beady eyes, you feel what an ugly creature on earth this guy has been mixed with. You'd later find out that he was a pure British born majestic breed.

If FBI actually practices merit based hiring/promotion, Comey, McCabe, Wray, Mueller, Stzok, Ohr and all those other corrupt incompetents never would've been promoted to where they were.

    I still stand amazed that white women are TOTALLY OK with someone coming from ANOTHER NATION, even LEGALLY (let alone illegally), who can cross the border, and immediately have HIRING preference OVER THEM...(not that I agree with white women having A/A, that's a scam too, but a topic for another time)...but a 7th Generation Spaniard, who's family are doctors, lawyers, and former slave owners, can come here and be treated like a descendant of slaves--"brown people" (even if they are obviously white).

    Likewise, an illiterate illegal can cross over, from a Latin American country that has ZERO connection to the culture or history of the United States--never suffered ANYTHING, and he or she is automatically given preference once "in the system" (including college entrances). That's what the democrats are selling to white women. And white women are totally ok with that.

    That's totally cool with blacks, I get that--they don't care and aren't thinking about the future (or seeing it). But white women(?), they sit back and vote for this and agree with this. Their own kids will take a backseat in everything from hiring preferences, to college, to other federal, local and state benefits.

    Good observations. Women are generally more present-oriented than men, which (along with their emotionalism) explains much of their support for liberal policies, which generally discount (if not disregard) the future and are designed to alleviate some sort of short-term concern. (I believe Nietzsche made similar points about women’s time preference, to use Austrian Econ terminology.)

    Wow. nice article.
    The conditions discussed in this article squarely reflect the pathetic condition Indian "Reservation/Quota" system being implemented for the past 70 years./ The pretense was the social brainwash that happened some lower castes got to the bad end of the deal. To correct that, India has everywhere so called "Quota/Reservation" system, which reserves the school admissions, college admissions, all types of jobs, promotions, additional benefits for such "reserved caste" class of people.

    Initially when this system was implemented by a moron called BR Ambedkar, he was told to implement upto 7% for 5 years. Now look where India has fallen. Current reservations are 50% or more.

    If you NOT born into this set of castes, you are screwed everywhere.

    No wonder a lot of so called "upper caste" people move out the first chance they get.

    Its so sad that US and other western countries taking same approach to cause injustice to the "Merit"

    Merit should be the only winner everywhere.
    Rest of things DON't matter!!

    In India, all application forms ask "what religion, caste" are you?
    Fuc that!!

    True, some castes of Indians are banned from higher education and numerous jobs. So they come to America and because of their tan skin are hired instead of more qualified Whites because they are affirmative action elites in America.

    Sorry, what's your point?

    The issue is not about the race or gender of who's doing what - but rather their competence to do so.

    Promoting diversity in art galleries, for example, might irritate but it won't cost lives.

    However, where life and limb is potentially at risk, be it in engineering or anything else, you want the most qualified to get the job, and not put other people's lives at risk so that various "diversity" boxes can be ticked.

    That specifically is the issue - not about being anti Cuban or anti Hispanic or anything else.

    If you're flying across the Atlantic you want a properly competent pilot at the controls, regardless of race or gender, and not someone who scraped through training after several failed attempts, but was allowed to continue because of their "diversity" credentials.

    The mechanics are even more important than the pilots. And they are heavily AA. And the inspectors, being natives of corrupt Latin America, Asia and India are even more dangerous.

    The maddening part is the Republican party has dropped opposition to anti-white affirmative action policies from its party platform altogether. They used to at least mock it and pay lip service to its repeal until sometime during the Dubya's first term. Another example of left wing drift of the establishment right.

    The last Republican president (Bush) and current one (Trump) both support affirmative action policies for "minorities" which today means anybody who isn't a straight white male. Whites are going to have to start playing racial hardball on this matter.

    AA is and always has been a zero sum game that forcibly distributes jobs and other resources from whites to non-whites. It "levels the playing field" by engaging in blatant discrimination against white males and just when you think things can't get worse we're entering an era of mandated equality of outcomes by government intimidation, judicial activism and if those fail, large scale mob action.

    Illana needs to admit that if whites ever mount a serious attack on affirmative action policies it will be her kinsmen who will use their power and influence to beat us back and keep these policies in place since attacking white racial interests is their primary goal.

    I was a young adult when AA began. The Republicans were as enthusiastic about it as the democrats were. Also, please remember that more Republican senators and congressmen voted for the 1964 and 1968 civil rights acts than Democrats did.

    The 1968 civil rights affirmative action act did not go into effect until January 1969 by which time Nixon the Republican was in office and congress was majority republican.

    AA was effected from 1969 to 1973 when we had a Republican president who appointed the people who ran the EEOC. Clarence Thomas, regean’s so called conservative appointee to the Supreme Court was head of the EEOC who abolished the PACE exam designed to screen out college grads who could not read at a high school
    Level.

    Republicans don’t hoot and holler about AA, but they are even more responsible for it than the democrats.

    And who sent the army with bayonets and even tanks to desegregate Arkansas and Tennessee schools? Eisenhower.

    The 60's were before my time but those are all true and excellent points about the Republicans. As I've always said the radical left has made some of their greatest gains in domestic affairs under ostensibly conservative Republican presidents and Congresses.

    In addition to the things you mentioned Richard Milhouse Nixon also supported forced busing and cuckservative icon Ronald Wilson Reagan amnestied over three million illegal aliens and liberalized our immigration laws which gave us the chain migration that's rapidly transforming American demographics into a potpourri of third world racial groups. The dept. of education also grew substantially after he vowed to abolish it and government grew in size and scope across the board under his "conservative" presidency.

    Fast forward to today and Trump ran against DACA protections and vowed to end them "on day one" but is now demanding Congress provide them a path to citizenship. He railed against the national debt on the campaign trail but just added more to in this omnibus bill than Obama ever did with his and the Democrats are crowing how they got more with Trump and a Republican majority than they did when they had one chamber and Obama as president.

    Voting Republican has become an exercise in futility.

    The 4th protocol in the 1896 edition I read convinced me they are absolute truth. “ Appoint none but the incompetent and unfit” aka affirmative action

  131. This reminds me of something similar I experienced in Houston. At the time I employed programmers for contract work. I was contacted by a Nigerian who offered to broker two million dollars in City of Houston contracts to upgrade its computer systems. Altho I had an established n experienced organization, I could not apply to obtain such contracts myself due to the racial preference system. The Nigerian had no organization, no employees, no experience, n no citizenship. But he had a PhD in computer science, which he told me he had obtained online “for life experience” in exchange for $1500. This qualified him, a recent immigrant, to go to the top of the list of MBE applicants n be awarded exclusive rights to these city contracts. The subcontract deal he proposed was no surprise: my programmers would do all the work at minimum wage while he would collect all the payments from Houston at full professional rates while he himself contributed nothing.

    I think this situation, which springs from the MBE scam (thank you SCOTUS for creating the scam) coupled with the Tammany Hall like strangle-hold that race-conscious blacks maintain over Houston’s city government, pretty well matches the increasing number of businesses in Houston that I see hiring Pakistanis, Mexicans, Indians, Blacks, etc., in short anyone with melanin n preferably a recent immigrant–but never whites. The people in these businesses, including some multinationals, in defense of this discriminatory employment policy against whites, reply “diversity”. This too I’ve been told personally.

    I am one of the beneficiaries from Affirmative Action (AA). However, I agree with Ilana's premise of merit and qualifications. I just want to say that as a Hispanic, I welcome the effort in AA insofar as it seeks to redress the centuries of slavery that the whites unleashed on such minorities as mine.
    Simon Bolivar the famous South American liberator said "It is easier to enslave people who has been free than to liberate those who have been slaves." Bolivar's words are true: people who have been slaves may spend their entire lives without realizing their freedom while nurturing their slaves'v consciousness. The way to break such a physiological phenomena is by using role models. There has to be minorities in power.
    In other words, AA is a form of righting the evils of the past. If your train is late because of people like me and you loose a few minutes just think about the people who spent their lives to make your white life easier and wealthy.

    <>

    Last I recall it was dusky Hispanic conquistadors who enslaved pale Indians. Or have modern textbooks performed a surgical melanin-change? Breaking news, bra, all peoples were enslaved at one time or another, n the melanin endowed were usually the worst offenders. I hereby submit my demand for reparations to you for your ancestors’ enslavement of European indentured servants in Caribbean sugar plantations, n for attacking n attempting to enslave Holland, n for enslaving Sicily, n for your Mediterranean galley slaves, n for impressing whites n making them slaves in your Latin navies, n for supporting North African slave ships that used to seize people on the coasts of Ireland n France.

    I still stand amazed that white women are TOTALLY OK with someone coming from ANOTHER NATION, even LEGALLY (let alone illegally), who can cross the border, and immediately have HIRING preference OVER THEM...(not that I agree with white women having A/A, that's a scam too, but a topic for another time)...but a 7th Generation Spaniard, who's family are doctors, lawyers, and former slave owners, can come here and be treated like a descendant of slaves--"brown people" (even if they are obviously white).

    Likewise, an illiterate illegal can cross over, from a Latin American country that has ZERO connection to the culture or history of the United States--never suffered ANYTHING, and he or she is automatically given preference once "in the system" (including college entrances). That's what the democrats are selling to white women. And white women are totally ok with that.

    That's totally cool with blacks, I get that--they don't care and aren't thinking about the future (or seeing it). But white women(?), they sit back and vote for this and agree with this. Their own kids will take a backseat in everything from hiring preferences, to college, to other federal, local and state benefits.

    Women generally don’t object because they simply are not subject to the same economic pressures as men. In the back of their minds if the egg hits the fan they know that they can marry n be supported by a man, or get pregnant n go on welfare, or prostitute. N there are a vast network of shelters n orgs that accept women in all of these circumstances. So no matter how many illegals cross the border, it won’t harm white women but actually increases their “customer” base.

    What white women don’t seem to get is that race trumps gender (witness Hillarys dismal loss to Obama). The current political purge of white males from all positions of influence will eventually be extended to white women. If they aren’t in love with the idea of playing third or fourth wife to an immigrant Pakistani diversity hire who just displaced her from her job, they might want to start thinking about the significance of the all-black jury releasing OJ, n how to halt n roll back the diversity scam.

    Actually, Whites did this. The 1968 affirmative action civil rights act was made law by a White male senate and more than 90 percent White male congress.

    An all White male Supreme Court ruled against hiring of qualified Whites in favor of extremely unqualified blacks in the Griggs vs Duke Power and kaiser vs Weber cases.

    Kaiser vs Weber was about the fact that Kaiser Steel mills required that applicants for foremen have a high school diploma.

    All White male supreme courts ruled against merit hiring in favor of unqualified non White hiring

    It was a White male government that did it. There were very few, almost no White women senators, cabinet members judges congress critters or even attorneys 1968 to 1973 when affirmative action was implemented.

    Stop blaming White women guys, blame your fathers and grandfathers generation, some times known as the
    Greatest Generation because it won WW2.

    First, affirmative action simply rationally applied, does not destroy anything.
    Obviously there is no race, group or nation mentally or IQ-related superior to any other.
    And above all the bottom unequal one must be treated un-equally.
    It ´s a moral and pagmatical must.
    There are no equality rules, much less so "meritocracy" rules that can relagate this to second position.
    Cut that merit upper class crap! Use no masks.

    Narrowly tailored affirmative action - ideally for example limited to African Americans - with a strong emphasis on the "affirmative action" aspect where we work on the pipeline to right past wrongs, without stealing from the weakest of the "majority" demography to give arbitrarily to another demography ... that, is something for which a compelling argument exists.

    We don't do that. Affirmative action favors upper middle class white women, immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean, already-well-off American blacks - but not American blacks who need help. It probably helps Hispanics although I'd like to see the data because I have my doubts, not least of all because unlike most of the commenters here, my own professional experience has led to no evidence that Hispanics need it. The educational, intellectual and work ethic capacity of Hispanics seems altogether, wholly, adequate, and any past un-righted wrong against Hispanics by the United States is remarkably poorly articulated. Certainly you don't mean to compare the Hispanic plight to the African American one?

    But what even the alternative media seems to have not picked up on is that there is a specific distance to which Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity goes and past which it makes no requirements of employers.

    That distance is not far enough for "diversity". In the name of diversity private enterprise is taking us to vistas never dreamed of by AA.

    And oddly: it will end, or split the country. I just have hope that by threatening to split the country first, its opponents will actually prevent it from ending, or splitting the country.

    There is only so much financial engineering the well-off of the majority can tailor to steal from the less well off of the majority to give as tribute to the minorities. It's not at all clear either that we can't find a way to offer minorities a better deal than that.

    No one has gauges or a dashboard, but I think we are testing the limits and entering the red zone.

    The resultant largesse of AA and social welfare in general is depressing the fertility of the smarts and increasing that of the dumbs. The absolute tipping point will never come. It will simply be a slow grind into a poorer, less reliable and substantially more unequal US.

    I was a young adult when AA began. The Republicans were as enthusiastic about it as the democrats were. Also, please remember that more Republican senators and congressmen voted for the 1964 and 1968 civil rights acts than Democrats did.

    The 1968 civil rights affirmative action act did not go into effect until January 1969 by which time Nixon the Republican was in office and congress was majority republican.

    AA was effected from 1969 to 1973 when we had a Republican president who appointed the people who ran the EEOC. Clarence Thomas, regean’s so called conservative appointee to the Supreme Court was head of the EEOC who abolished the PACE exam designed to screen out college grads who could not read at a high school
    Level.

    Republicans don’t hoot and holler about AA, but they are even more responsible for it than the democrats.

    And who sent the army with bayonets and even tanks to desegregate Arkansas and Tennessee schools? Eisenhower.

    The 60′s were before my time but those are all true and excellent points about the Republicans. As I’ve always said the radical left has made some of their greatest gains in domestic affairs under ostensibly conservative Republican presidents and Congresses.

    In addition to the things you mentioned Richard Milhouse Nixon also supported forced busing and cuckservative icon Ronald Wilson Reagan amnestied over three million illegal aliens and liberalized our immigration laws which gave us the chain migration that’s rapidly transforming American demographics into a potpourri of third world racial groups. The dept. of education also grew substantially after he vowed to abolish it and government grew in size and scope across the board under his “conservative” presidency.

    Fast forward to today and Trump ran against DACA protections and vowed to end them “on day one” but is now demanding Congress provide them a path to citizenship. He railed against the national debt on the campaign trail but just added more to in this omnibus bill than Obama ever did with his and the Democrats are crowing how they got more with Trump and a Republican majority than they did when they had one chamber and Obama as president.

    Voting Republican has become an exercise in futility.

    Many Republican SCOTUS picks have gone total libtard or moderate. John Paul Stevens, who was appointed by "conservative" Gerald Ford eventually became part of the liberal wing and recently called for a repeal of the second amendment. Current justices John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy are aligned with the conservative wing but seem to vote with the liberal wing almost 50% of the time. John Robert's rescued Obamacare by rewriting the law from the bench using tortured logic and reasoning.

    No liberal appointees have turned conservative and members of the liberal wing only rarely breaks ranks.

    At least many whites moved to the right on racial issues during Obama's reign after they saw that a black presidency wasn't the fairy tale they always thought it would be. Obama exemplified the shitty, hateful attitudes most blacks have for whites and America.

    Republicans own more seats in Congress and in state houses across the nation than they have in decades yet the radical left keeps racking up victories in the culture wars and things keep getting worse from our perspective.

    In France, AA is called 'positive discrimination' and that's what it is, discrimination. AA is a euphemism for discrimination against whites. Camouflaged as promoting the underprivileged, it deprives the white majority of equal opportunity. I wouldn't mind if AA provided additional enrolments at universities for minorities, in the context of the USA, something needs to be done to lift black Americans from misery and help them rejoin the mainstream. But as it is, AA / PD is used to mass-produce faithful servants of the current status quo and deprive the white popular masses of their own countries which they are entitled to rule.
    Please, cut us some slack with that "white are enslavers" canard. I am white, and neither I nor my parents nor my grandparents nor my grand grandparents nor the vast majority of whites have ever enslaved anyone. Gosh, my first expose in school was against Apartheid. I have grown up among minorities in a Paris suburb in France and there was no discrimination or racism against anyone. As a gifted kid with a sense of pedagogy, while immigrant myself, I was even on several occasions asked by my teachers to help out African immigrant children with learning to read French.
    Granted I don't know how it is in reality in the USA but I don't see where's the justice of depriving the children of hard working white Americans of the opportunity to study if they have the intellectual capacity to do so and I don't see how it can be good for a country to replace those with the intellectual capacity to study with members of minorities who don't have that capacity. The only way to improve the standards of living of a population is to produce wealth. I don't see how under-capable graduates can drive an economy to the benefit of all the people in a country.
    As for your kin in particular, masses of you while pissing on white blue collars are actually fighting the wars of the true enslavers by serving in the US military.

    The reality in the United States is that we have been supporting a large group of low-IQ people for centuries. They, blacks, as a group, lack the ability to function, succeed and contribute to our advanced society. Given their genetic constraints, we have done an admirable job of uplifting those we can and making the most of the ones we cannot.

    In fact, our blacks are probably the richest, most educated and most productive in the entire world. That is a testament to our society. France has not had these perpetual social, criminal, and economic problems. I sincerely doubt it will be able to achieve what we have done when they are faced with the waves of migration coming their way.

    Regardless, good luck.

    An interesting article from an avowed and acknowledged jew about the 'undesirables' and 'deplorables' (admittedly, not her words) trashing up the Jerusalem neighborhood. She seems very schooled on the history of Muhammed, and the timing of the appearing on the scene of the arabs that adhere to islam. What her history appears to be lacking in, or willfully omitted, is that her acknowledged 'fore father', Abram, was neither born in, nor was raised in, nor ever claimed to have a home in, Canaan; the middle eastern dust bowl that the jews and arabs are so rabid about. No, Abram was a Persian; or Mesopotamian; or fertile crescent dweller, depending on whose geographical history you tend to believe. Abram, in todays vernacular, was Iranian/Iraqi. Not Arab. Not Jew. And TaNaK quotes the history of Jacob as being "...a Syrian; literally, "Aram" [Deut. 26:5] Abram left Iran/Iraq and went to "...wallow in the dust (literal Hebrew) with the 'Plishteem', or Philistines. Now we call them Palestinians, but then they were Philistines. Why would Abram leave a beautiful fertile crescent in Iran to go to wallow in the dust with the 'Plishteem'? And when Abram got there, there were already Canaanites living in the area, because he had learn to cheat them out of what was already theirs. So, who was there first, according to the jews Bible? Hmmm.

    Sorry to shatter your house of glass. One little lie (mistake, if we are to be charitable) undermines your otherwise good post: people we call Palestinians today are Arabs. No Arabs were there at the times you talk about. Plishteem or Philistines are not in any way related to present-day Arabic Palestinians.

    White women are the main beneficiaries of formal and informal affirmative action so they have no reason to be against it. All throughout American corporations and academia, there is a huge push to get more women into higher level positions.

    True, a woman with more diversity points and equal ability is preferable to a mere white woman, but often affirmative action just means a white woman winning out over a white man, because white women are considered “diverse,” whereas white men are not. So we tend to see WM only in positions that require a lot of expertise, ie a diverse candidate of equal competence cannot be found, and anyway the quotas are already padded with lower level diverse employees.

    So WW get to play it both ways. They benefit from “white privilege,” (AKA competence, intelligence, education), as well as “minority privilege.” At present the AA policies favor them, but in time the WW will also start to be considered not diverse enough. They will show increasing racial solidarity as it becomes clear NO whites are welcome within the Democratic Party. That a majority of WW voted for Trump is a sign of things to come.

    A whole bunch of white women tried to "save" themselves in the false hope that DJT would try to change it all. Has he?

    He sits like a lame duck waiting for the Izzy firters and the cultural marxists to tell him what to do. And to top it off he does that with a poker face. Every damn thing he said during the campaign trail was a lie it seems. Forget about leaving the middle east alone (that seems almost impossible given the amount of zionist "influence" in the WH) he couldn't even get the needed funding for the effin wall from the CONgress.

    So how do you voting will change anything? Sort of a revolution, nothing can change anything now. We've sailed too far down this river to change course peacefully now. Or else like me, you can leave this shitty madhouse circus and let the Zionist "globalists" along with their new clerks the Asian Indians run this show.

    “A whole bunch of white women tried to “save” themselves in the false hope that DJT would try to change it all…?”

    It is a proven scientific fact that women are as capable and physically powerful as men- therefore sharing in the voting franchise…
    The white women warriors can be counted on- like they’re pioneering forefathers- to conspire at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia and the Green Dragon in Boston -and facing down the threat of death or ignominious defeat- rescue their manlets from American Bolshevism…

    Nah, just more crouching down and hand licking…

    And furious button pushing at our choice of webzine.

    In France, AA is called 'positive discrimination' and that's what it is, discrimination. AA is a euphemism for discrimination against whites. Camouflaged as promoting the underprivileged, it deprives the white majority of equal opportunity. I wouldn't mind if AA provided additional enrolments at universities for minorities, in the context of the USA, something needs to be done to lift black Americans from misery and help them rejoin the mainstream. But as it is, AA / PD is used to mass-produce faithful servants of the current status quo and deprive the white popular masses of their own countries which they are entitled to rule.
    Please, cut us some slack with that "white are enslavers" canard. I am white, and neither I nor my parents nor my grandparents nor my grand grandparents nor the vast majority of whites have ever enslaved anyone. Gosh, my first expose in school was against Apartheid. I have grown up among minorities in a Paris suburb in France and there was no discrimination or racism against anyone. As a gifted kid with a sense of pedagogy, while immigrant myself, I was even on several occasions asked by my teachers to help out African immigrant children with learning to read French.
    Granted I don't know how it is in reality in the USA but I don't see where's the justice of depriving the children of hard working white Americans of the opportunity to study if they have the intellectual capacity to do so and I don't see how it can be good for a country to replace those with the intellectual capacity to study with members of minorities who don't have that capacity. The only way to improve the standards of living of a population is to produce wealth. I don't see how under-capable graduates can drive an economy to the benefit of all the people in a country.
    As for your kin in particular, masses of you while pissing on white blue collars are actually fighting the wars of the true enslavers by serving in the US military.

    I've left these United States a whole while back. I do think that when shit hits the fan (and it will, how can it not given these conditions), there will be a whole bunch of 'coloreds' in our army and the reserves forces. They wouldn't hesitate to kill their own countrymen as long as they get crumbs thrown at them.

    Our "elites" would have already run to Argentina and Israel and control "policy" from there. Remember they have a pretty good experience of controlling "massacres" from afar. It wouldn't be so difficult for them to implement the same here since they've got more than enough practice in the middle east and in latin america.

    But yes if you are determined to stay and fight, good for you. Perhaps you've got to prepare your sons and daughters for the ultimate fight. Since I guess it would another 2 to 3 decades for things to really go downhill, both economically and socially! By that time, most of us would be underground already

    {Voting Republican has become an exercise in futility.}

    Unfortunately, that's all the exercise we got.

    Here are the choices then:

    1. Vote Republican, and get a "Donald Trump", and get some crumbs (i.e. Gorsuch, some tax relief,...).
    2. Don't vote, and the Left has the field all to themselves: a "Hillary Clinton" becomes POTUS. One or more anti-male, anti-Christian "Ginsburg" become SCOTUS. Don't vote, and get nothing, and get enslaved and looted even more as a bonus.

    Very depressing.

    btw: I think it's Ivanka who is influencing Dad in folding on DACA, chain migration, etc.
    My guess is on social issues, The Donald does what Ivanks tells him to do.

    “….2. Don’t vote, and the Left has the field all to themselves: a “Hillary Clinton” becomes POTUS. One or more anti-male, anti-Christian “Ginsburg” become SCOTUS. Don’t vote, and get nothing, and get enslaved and looted even more as a bonus…..”

    This is the ONLY choice.

    Put down your childish games and diversions … and Fight.

    Or..

    Be ENSLAVED.

    Slavery is a very real and just punishment for weak and degenerate men.
    The penitentiary is a very recent and idiotic financial scam.
    Without the gyno- centric electronic grid, the world will resume at a more paternal/realistic pace…

    Many Republican SCOTUS picks have gone total libtard or moderate. John Paul Stevens, who was appointed by “conservative” Gerald Ford eventually became part of the liberal wing and recently called for a repeal of the second amendment. Current justices John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy are aligned with the conservative wing but seem to vote with the liberal wing almost 50% of the time. John Robert’s rescued Obamacare by rewriting the law from the bench using tortured logic and reasoning.

    No liberal appointees have turned conservative and members of the liberal wing only rarely breaks ranks.

    At least many whites moved to the right on racial issues during Obama’s reign after they saw that a black presidency wasn’t the fairy tale they always thought it would be. Obama exemplified the shitty, hateful attitudes most blacks have for whites and America.

    Republicans own more seats in Congress and in state houses across the nation than they have in decades yet the radical left keeps racking up victories in the culture wars and things keep getting worse from our perspective.

    I totally agree but too many white Americans still think that merely noticing Jews and Jewish power is tantamount to creating conditions that lead to a holocaust. The vast majority of whites are victims of menticide. They're also in denial that Jews can and often do act maliciously towards us and dream up all kinds of excuses to explain it away.

    Jews are only 2% of the general population but 33% of the SCOTUS and overrepresented by 1600%. Not only that but all of them comprise 75% of the liberal wing of the court or three of the four liberal justices (Sotomayer is #4) .

    One aspect of the problem is we can't figure out what to call the problem. My sense is its problematic to call it "affirmative action". The worst transgressions are by private industry not the fed (not letting the feds off here, just sayin') and private industry goes far beyond the requirements of legal-edict affirmative action under the banner of "diversity".

    Industry is clever too. Affirmative action, the law, needn't mean hiring, it can mean "action", like efforts affirmatively undertaken to educate and prepare minority candidates or effort to be sure those candidates are in an applicant pool.

    Diversity really means the worst people imagine of affirmative action, i.e.: quotas, but its worse because private industry is so good at spinning it: "we have achieved our diversity 'goals'".

    Not quotas, "goals". Oh, and managers know they'd better hit their goals.

    As far as I can tell this will not stop, can't be argued with, will only get worse and gets worse if you do argue with it because arguing or reasoning telegraphs you aren't willing to fight when something is being stolen by force.

    The discussion needs to change to: how do we signal a willingness and intent to fragment the republic if this isn't stopped?

    That signal: may stop it. Then no fragmentation required. Arguing with it just makes it stronger.

    America's elite colleges have never been a place for America's best and brightest, nor the cultivator of new ideas. Almost since their inception they have been the enforcer of the status quo, rubber stamping diplomas of the scions of the elites, legitimizing and peddling whatever ideology that is fashionable among the elites to the masses. They are places to perpetuate elitism, not to disrupt it.

    Thus when the WASPs were in power, Jews were the barbarians kept outside the gates. Now that Jews are in power, it is they and those they deemed not true competition, i.e. the blacks, browns, and homos, plus whites and asians most willing to drink the liberal kool-aid a.k.a. libart majors, who are inside the gates, everyone else is kept out.

    The problem starts and ends with our elite colleges. As long as these institutions are around perpetuating elitism, America will always be enslaved by the elites. Whoever controls Harvard is the group currently in power. Jews are loath to relinquish their stranglehold on Harvard, they know the Asians are knocking at the door wanting in. The WASPs were idiots for letting the Jews in, Jews won't make the same mistake with the new barbarians at the gate. The only way to truly disrupt the status quo is to completely do away with the prestige accorded these institutions. Unfortunately that's unlikely to happen with the country continuing to be flooded with Ivy worshipping Asians. If anything they only further bolster the elitism of these schools by flocking to them and begging to be let in -- another reason why we urgently need to curtail Asian immigration.

    The Anglo Saxon infatuation with Jews is truly something to behold. If Oliver Cromwell had not allowed the Jews back into England in 1656 (after King Edward the first had expelled them in 1290 AD),the western world would not be experiencing all these problems.

    The monumental stupidity of the Anglo Saxon elites, in yielding power to the Jews, over the last several centuries will result in the total and complete destruction of Anglo Saxon culture and civilization.

    This form of “affirmative action” is rampant in the federal contracts arena, as “minority-owned” firms can place bids up to 15% higher and still be awarded a federal contract. I personally witnessed this when a small “minority native-American” firm was awarded a federal contract for security services. This “minority-owned” company knew NOTHING about security, so they hired the next highest bidder (that was a well-known international security firm) to perform the contract while the “minority-owned” company “skimmed a profit” for doing absolutely nothing.

    You are describing the diversity point system in federal contracting.

    The more diverse a contractor is, the more points or adjustments it gets toward winning a federal contract.

    It's a form of Affirmative Action for diverse contractors.

    The federals also have what is called 8a set-aside contracts for diverse contractors.

    8a set-aside contracts are exclusively awarded to and performed by diverse contractors.

    Both are illicit transactions and are a large scale form of cronyism.

    Diversity (protected class groups) and Inclusion (protected class group federal entitlements) is a democrat-neocon scheme to buy the votes of multiple federally protected class groups:



    Feminist are favored by illicit federal laws because of presumed Male oppression
    Jewish are favored by illicit federal laws because of presumed Gentile oppression
    Queers are favored by illicit federal laws because of presumed Straight oppression
