From the New York Times news section:

Beacon High School Is Half White. That’s Why Students Walked Out.

More than 300 students at the selective public high school, one of New York City’s most prestigious, protested its admissions policies.

By Eliza Shapiro
Dec. 2, 2019

Naia Timmons, a junior from Harlem, stood surrounded by classmates in the middle of the street outside Beacon High School as hail began to fall.

She shouted into a bullhorn: “I continue to recognize the privilege I had of escaping the system that many of my friends could not.” Naia identifies as black and white.

Her classmates chanted “End Jim Crow” and “Education is a right, not just for the rich and white.”

Roughly 300 students walked out of Beacon on Monday to protest its high-stakes admissions process, which they said has exacerbated segregation in the nation’s largest school system.

The protest at Beacon, one of New York City’s most selective public schools, illustrates the widening scope of the push for school integration. It has shifted away from the narrow issue of how few black and Hispanic students are admitted to the city’s eight specialized high schools, including Stuyvesant.

Beacon’s student population is about half white, a striking anomaly in a public school system that is nearly 70 percent black and Hispanic.

Here are the official stats from the NYC school district for Beacon, which is at 544 W. 44th St. in Hell’s Kitchen, near Times Square:

Student Demographics
Asian: 9%
Black: 14%
Hispanic or Latinx: 20%
White: 47%
English language learners: 0%
Students with special needs: 11%

So, whites are a minority at Beacon, which is an interesting Current Year definition of “segregation.” But clearly, the school is Taking Steps to keep kids who can’t speak English or who are retarded out of the school.

Beacon is not a specialized high school — it has no admissions test — but its highly competitive admissions process requires students to assemble a portfolio of middle school work, admissions essays and high standardized test scores and grades. It is one of the most selective schools in New York: Last year, there were over 5,800 applications for 360 ninth-grade seats.

Beacon has a higher percentage of black and Hispanic students than Stuyvesant — about 32 percent compared to 4 percent at the specialized school — but also a higher percentage of white students, fewer Asian students and a lower percentage of students living in poverty. The school’s parent-teacher organization raised over $685,000 for the school last year, according to data released on Monday.

… Mr. de Blasio’s daughter, Chiara, attended Beacon. …

But Sadie also said that she sometimes felt isolated at the school, which was about 9 percent Asian last year. She had exclusively white teachers last year. Sometimes people at the school confused her with another Asian-American girl in one of her classes, she said. Sometimes she was asked where she was from and whether she spoke Chinese.

Someday, she fears, somebody will ask to touch her hair.

  5. Arclight says:

    Segregated in the modern context means that whites are present in numbers that leave open the possibility that their concerns and preferences might prevail over other groups. Desegregation is when whites are present but in sufficiently small numbers that their desires can be overridden by the coalition of the diverse. This is the condition for the entire country the left wants to impose by importing millions of ringers to overwhelm the political preferences of the current majority.

    Great Schools lists the racial demographics as this:

    White: 53%
    Hispanic: 22%
    Black: 14%
    Asian: 8%

    That leaves three percent which sounds about right for “Mixed Race/Other.”

    That page also shows Blacks performing extremely well at that school. Can’t they just be happy?

    Naia identifies as black and white.

    Can you identify as black and white? I thought that you had to ID as black up to octoroon territory, after which point you are allowed to identify as mixed race.

    It seems to me like Beacon is about as close as you can practically get to the demographics of the United States (hoping Ron allows HTML table formatting):

    Race Beacon High United States

    White 47% 72%
    Hispanic 20% 16%
    Black 14% 13%
    Asian 9% 5%

    Obviously, the census must allow Hispanics to choose a race also or something, pushing the total white percentage so high that the overall total exceeds 100 percent.

    Wow, the table was so pretty in the preview, but the formatting is stripped after submission.

    So… lemme see here, now, if I can get this 2019 Clownworld stuff straight: a plurality is actually a majority,

    Sometimes people ask when is all this demographic change going to let up? Others will respond that it will when Whites become less than 50%. But it looks like that won’t be good enough. Whites in the high 40s still means they are a plurality. And apparently a White plurality is not acceptable. The only remedy is to ensure Whites are definitely below 40% and probably closer to 35%.

    It’s even more complicated than that. The majority of minorities are supposedly oppressed because there aren’t more of them at this “good” school. But the school is only “good” because the plurality of whites is as large as it is. So if the majority of minorities get what they want — i.e., a smaller plurality of white people and a bigger majority of minorities; then they will also lose what they want — i.e., to attend a “good” school.

    But the main point is: Whitey Bad.

    In Maplewood New Jersey the high school was considered segregated because although the student body is 40% Black only 20% of the students in AP classes are Black.

    Columbia high school in Maplewood, NJ, is being sued again for segregating students. This is the third such lawsuit over the last last 8 years. They settled with the Obama Administrations DOJ back in 2014, yet another lawsuits is pending. Back in 2014 when they settled with the Obama administration they eliminated testing requirements for AP classes. AP classes went from being 10% black to 20% Black , but this is still considered segregation. Since 40% of the students are Black they demand 40% of the students in AP classes should be Black. 20% Black is considered segregated.

    A group of black parents in Maplewood and South Orange, N.J., have sued their school district in federal court over discrimination. Columbia High School has a tracking system that assigns students to classes based on ability. The school district is saying it can’t comment on litigation. But last year, before the lawsuit was filed, the school board voted to eliminate all lower levels in the tracking system, but the parents feel this does not go far enough…The lawsuit seeks 12 million dollars in damages and demands that classes no longer be tracked and that programs be put in place to help African-American students.

    It’s interesting, THIS will probably be the school they sacrifice on the altar of diversity, because the Asians aren’t interested in it–just the whites.

    My guess is, these whites aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, but they got themselves into this school so they could (mostly) be away from the blacks, but not have to pay for private school.

    I’m guessing this school will let A LOT more blacks in, and most of the whites and ALL of the Asians will flee within the year. They may even flee the city.

    Couple years later–needing the tax base–the city will, quietly, but not too quietly, change back to the old way.

    When I was a young man, I taught school at a very competitive Catholic School in Montgomery County Maryland. The parents all wanted their kids to get into Gonzaga and Stone Ridge, so I burdened them with TONS of work. . . Then I enlisted in the Army. 39 months later I came back and got a job at a Catholic school in P.G. County. It was not competitive. The parents were mostly cops and whatever. All they wanted was to keep their kids out of the public schools, which were majority black. They didn’t do homework, they openly cheated on tests. They were only there form one reason, to stay away from the blacks.

    They were very nice kids, and their parents were fun to party with. I bet most of those kids have pretty good jobs and intact families. And I bet none of them send their kids to public school, because they love them.

    Whites are a minority in NYC , yet minority representation is now an obsession for the public schools in NYC.

    The obsession with racial quotas will only get worse over the next decade as whites lose their majority status. Whites are already less than 50% of the youth population. In 12 years whites will be less than 50% of the under 40 population. More whites have died over the last 8 years than were born. The number of non-Hispanic whites peaked in the United States back in 2011. The 2020 census will confirm thus , the white population is in decline , with record low birth rates coinciding with increased death rates over the last 7 years.

  47. The key question is what percentage of these “white” students are Jewish? If it’s more than 2% then I agree with Mrs. Shapiro that we have a serious problem here. White gentiles should not be in the position of defending Jewish over-representation. It is the height of hypocrisy to have a Jewish SJW attacking “whites” because of Jewish children being over-represented. Gentile whites need to ally with PoC in setting up a rigid quota system where Jews are counted as a separate category than whites.

    Steve,

    Please excuse the modern dating market real talk.

    But I think you have missed out on a major tenant in the Grand Theory of 21st Century Female Journalism. Namely, Jewish women have become the female equivalent of Incel White Men (who are modern day eunuchs).

    In SMV terms, both groups have seen their stock plummet to record lows. Shy, quiet, shorter Incel men have been displaced by (1) loud, dumb talented-tenth NAM’s supported by diversity quotas and an Obama halo effect and (2) dating apps, which allow for female hypergamy in the early 20’s and 30’s. Correspondingly, Jewish women have been displaced by women from basically every other ethnicity, but noticeably, Asian women. How insulting is it when a successful Jewish guy is willing to marry a black girl over an intelligent, albeit naggy Jewish girl? I mean, ouch. Even the Incels look at that, and say, “Nope. I’m good with Pornhub.”

    The Incel guys fret about going gay, using call girls, or going all Elliot Rodger. The Eliza Shapiro’s fret about dying alone and unnoticed for weeks-on-end, despite their nepotistic Ivy degree and supportive parents, and ending up as a meal for their cats.

    These fears likely explain the unadulterated rage emanating from both groups — like jets of radiation from two disparate, lonely low SMV Black Holes. There should be a matchmaking service for Incels and young Jewish women. Perhaps it could prevent some mass shootings and some dating-rage-induced NYT columns?

    Alas, this was not to be for me. I am 6’2″ (and was tall starting about 7th grade) and was pretty memorable for most who met me. So no fun confusion. Also, at the first school I attended in the U.S. I was the only Asian boy (there was a couple of Asian girls who were adopted), so there was zero chance of any such antics. I must admit I rather enjoyed the uniqueness and the attention from the opposite sex this brought.

    Asian women have almost completely displaced Jewish women in the marriage market for Jewish men.

    Old people may not realize this. It’s comically complete somewhere like the Bay area by it is still very real in New York, where Jewish women significantly outnumber Asian women. You can go to a playground in park slope and see only hapa kids.

    The reason old people wouldn’t know, I guess, is that Jewish women aren’t going to put this in print most of the time. And good schools and jobs weren’t filled with American born Asians when olds were young.

    But it is a HUGE subtext for millennial and younger Jewish women in UMC circles.

    Asian girls are just as smart and actually feminine and caring for the Jewish men everyone else sees as beta dorks.

    Isn’t Maplewood considered a beacon of integration generally? Blacks have a weird way of thinking about accomplishment. They tend to think success is simply given not earned. So people owning a business in the hood were given money by the gov’t to open. Instead of the reality: family members looking their capital, working ungodly hours to put up with rude and nasty blacks to eke out a 5% return.

    Here AP classes are a good that should simply be bestowed upon students. If only their kid can get into it then they’ll be set. There’s no expectation that they’ll have to do the work while there. When their kid inevitable fails they’ll accuse the teacher of racism.

    whites became a minority of school aged children a few years ago, yet the obsession with racial demographics in schools is becoming a bigger focus now that there are not enough whites. Schools which are 25% white are now considered segregated, because they are too Black/hispanic…while schools which are 45% white are too white.

    Just last year they were complaining about segregated schools in California and Texas because the white population fell below the magic threshold of 20%. Now they are complaining that 45% is too white. I suppose the goal is to have all schools 30% white while all AP classes must be 70% non-white.

    Is school segregation getting worse?https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2018/03/school-segregation-is-not-a-myth/555614/

    Plenty of people say yes, including scholars, journalists, and civil-rights advocates. For the first time in years, there’s something approximating a consensus: Racially divided schools are a major and intensifying problem for American education—maybe even a crisis.

    There’s seemingly compelling numerical evidence, too. According to analysis of data from the National Center on Education Statistics, the number of segregated schools (defined in this analysis as those schools where less than 40 percent of students are white), has approximately doubled between 1996 and 2016. So 39% is too few whites while 45% white is too many whites…

    Sometimes it’s tough to tell who’s Jewish. Here’s a suggestion – make all the Jews wear yellow stars on their clothing and then there can be no mistake. Also, sometimes Jews take Christian first names like Eliza and ambiguous last names like Miller. All Jewesses should be required to adopt Sarah as their first name and the Jew boys should be called Abraham. This way it would be 100% clear that you are dealing with a Jew. In order to avoid confusion, they can keep their original names as middle names so for example Eliza would become Sarah Eliza. This has been tried before in Europe and I understand it was very effective.

    Jewish guy thinks, “Wow! She’s a lot nicer than the Jewish girls [and any gentile white girls a Jewish guy would have access to in a big city], and I don’t even have to have dumb kids.”

    Asian guy thinks, “THEY’RE STEALING OUR WOMEN!” (Unless you are 6’2″, athletic, and descended from a military figure back there of course. 😉 )

    Here’s how I’ve noticed Jewish men marry out:

    1. Really rich Jews go for blonde shiksas. They are very often second wives, as the first, Jewish wife gets dumped when he’s more successful. (ex. Wolf of Wallstreet)
    2. Middle and Upper Middle class types go for the Asians
    3. Eccentric, bohemian Jews go for black women (Jussie Smollett’s father).

    Compounding this trend is that really attractive Jewish women often marry out too. Natalie Portman and Sarah Michelle Gellar both married gentiles, for example.

    When Beacon first opened, one of my daughters applied for the school and was turned down…

    She eventually got accepted into another school further downtown.

    But you are right, all of these schools that the media is claiming are ‘segregated’ are in fact very well integrated schools but don’t reflect the exact percentage of each group in the public school system.

    What people don’t understand or refuse to understand is that a school that reflects the exact percentage of each group is 70% black and hispanic and generally speaking a complete mess that even black and hispanic parents don’t want their kids to attend…so they keep chasing after either the white kids or asian kids trying to force themselves into whatever schools those kids are in…They don’t get that the school is good because of the kids in them. It’s not the other way around. Change the kids in the school and the school becomes a mess.

    Even this parent-teacher fund money is a complete red herring. Most of that money is used for extra curriculum activities which have little or nothing to do with the basic mission of the school which is to teach reading, writing, arithmetic. It might pay for an extra art/dance teacher or a trip for the graduating senior class, something like that…

    I think the major issue the black and hispanic parents need to address is the lack of self discipline that many of their kids exhibit. Disruptive kids in classes, fighting in the lunch room, yard, hallways, bathroom and even classrooms leads to the sort of schools that no one wants to attend. A long look in the mirror and an honest assessment of why their kids are failing is the first step to solving this ongoing problem.

    I remember back in 2013, a Princeton Mom (Susan Patton) penned a letter to the Daily Princetonian saying that Princeton coeds should focus on finding a husband, since they have easy access to a pool of future high-calibre men. It’s actually good advice, but, of course, outrage ensued. At the time, it was portrayed as an older white woman giving out-of-date advice. The real subcontext was that Susan Patton was Jewish, of course, and experienced first-hand Jewish women being ignored by Jewish men.

    Her advice was unheeded. Since then, I get the impression Jewish intermarriage rates (which were high, +60%, in the 2000’s), have picked up even more. Of the dozen or so younger Jewish guys I’ve known (via elitish college and elite employer), I think maybe one was engaged to a Jewish girl.

    It’s been said that the Ashkenazi, non-orthodox population can’t sustain itself beyond 2050 or so, due to intermarriage and low birth rates, leading to ethnic extinction a few decades later. Honestly, I think this is too conservative, with the final cohort of Ashkenazi Jews being born in the 2020’s.

    There is an organization sponsoring protests for “integration” of all NYC public schools. They say de Blasio‘s plan is way too slow.

    I found an article about a previous protest, I think in Park Slope Brooklyn. Not sure.

    My guess is this organization works with students at various schools to coordinate the protests.

    I remember over 30 years ago I briefly lived near Forest Hills HS in Queens. One of my neighbors pointed out that the white kids (and the few Asians they had back then) walked up the steep hill to the subway on one side of the street, while the black and Hispanic kids walked on the other side of the street. In those days there was a limited school choice, but the school system put a limit on transfers to the “white “ schools. The thought was that if they could keep the white percentage at or above 50%, they could avoid white flight.

    JewAsian: Race, Religion, and Identity for America’s Newest Jews

    JewAsian is a qualitative examination of the intersection of race, religion, and ethnicity in the increasing number of households that are Jewish American and Asian American.

    Zuckerbert-Chan are mentioned in an article. Part of the movie The Social Network is described:

    In a scene in the film, in which the Mark Zuckerberg character pulls his friend Eduardo Saverin out of an AEΠ (a Jewish fraternity) party to talk to him, Zuckerberg glances over at a group of Asian female Harvard students and asks what they are doing there. Saverin answers with something about how Asian girls like “us,” meaning Jewish guys.

    As opposed to what my young acquaintance thought about the attraction between Jewish men and Asian women — mostly having to do with (pernicious) stereotypes that Asian women are submissive and Jewish women are demanding — these older Asian-Jewish women thought that the affinity was due to a common emphasis on education and family that is shared by Jews and Asians. “Asian women don’t see nerdiness or lack of athleticism as a negative,” said one of the women. “I would have had a much harder time bringing home a big football player who wasn’t doing well in school than a scholarly Jewish guy.”

    With the exception of the aging dynamic, this goes for women, too. You only have to be relatively better than your surrounding milieu, not perfect.

There will always be a few cheaters but if they are found out to be Jews and therefore over their quota, there would be an immediate expulsion from the school and it would stay on the kids record for life. Remember Jews get lots of protection by self-reporting themselves as Jews. There are a whole list of tropes that you cannot throw at a Jew. So an undercover Jew would not get these protections. The kid could get called the K-word all day long and it would not be an offense since it is not a hate crime to call a Gentile the K-word. So while not perfect a system could be implemented to keep Jews equitably represented at elite schools

    Sometimes people ask when is all this demographic change going to let up? Others will respond that it will when Whites become less than 50%. But it looks like that won’t be good enough. Whites in the high 40s still means they are a plurality. And apparently a White plurality is not acceptable. The only remedy is to ensure Whites are definitely below 40% and probably closer to 35%.

    Well observed … but keep going ISF.

    Under the reigning minoritarian ideology–minorities good, majorities (meaning white gentiles) bad–there is *no* percentage at which white people are ok, safe, can be left alone. We exist to work, provide goodies and provide a marketplace for others to exploit.

    The US is not going back to the moon anytime soon–anytime in my life.

    The going to the moon thing was a great nation in its prime. Great nations are one-people nations, where the one people are smart enough and get a positive “can do” dynamic going. (E.g. Greeks, Chinese, Romans, French, English, Germans, Americans, Japanese … now the Chinese.) The US isn’t such a nation anymore it’s ideology isn’t “can do” it’s minoritarianism; and America isn’t a nation anymore, it’s a multicultural marketplace. And “you go grrl”, of course, doesn’t actually *do* anything at all.

    I could see the Chinese going to the moon as that’s a pretty good project to build their technological “system integration” and would continue to build Chinese nationalism.

    But the downside is the Americans–white guys–already did it, years and years go. So the Chinese pride and rah-rah factor isn’t what it should be. It might work better as part of a larger multi-generational exploration project that included going to Mars. But then there are other national projects that the Chinese could take on that perhaps yield much bigger long term rewards.

    I really don’t expect to see anyone back there in my life. But if i do, i expect they will be Chinese.

    Interesting Straits Times (Singapore) article that does not mention race as a factor, but says that almost everything other than race has been shown now to be a factor:

    Useful Pisa takeaways for Singapore education
    https://www.straitstimes.com/opinion/useful-pisa-takeaways-for-singapore-education

    WHAT DOESN’T WORK

    For one, Pisa has shown that rote-learning and hours of tuition [cram schools and test prep] do not work.
    :
    However, Pisa has shown no positive correlation between tuition and performance.

    Remembering formulas or chunks of content won’t do. Pisa’s questions require students to use their knowledge and skills to solve problems in unfamiliar contexts.

    It’s also not about money. Pisa studies comparing student scores with spending per student explain only about less than 20 per cent of the performance variation among countries. Also countries with similar spending achieve very different results.

    Pisa results also show that parents sending their children to private schools are wasting their money.
    :
    Parents here and in many other Asian nations clamour for smaller class sizes, but Pisa data again shows that it is not about smaller class sizes.

    NO HIGH-TECH ADVANTAGE

    Another useful insight from the Pisa data: computers and classroom technology do not improve student performance.
    :
    In fact, the frequent use of computers in school is more likely to be associated with lower marks,

    The territories with the lowest levels of Internet use in school – South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan – are among the top performers in international tests.

    In Singapore, students who reported that they “never or hardly ever” browse the Internet for schoolwork in school, performed the best in the digital reading test. They scored more than 30 points better than students who reported browsing the Internet in school “at least once a week”

    The article concludes that teacher quality, learning environment, societal emphasis on education, student motivation and attitudes and elbow grease are what matter.

    All of these are probably simply characteristics of innately smart students and societies, not the cause of smartness. In particular, teacher quality and classroom environment, if they mean facilities and texts and equipment and so on, have been definitively shown to be irrelevant except at the extreme. If you do well at something and are cut out for it, you tend to be motivated, your society emphasizes it, and you put effort into it because it is fun and supplies positive feedback.

The Luftwaffe and the U-boats were generally not heavily stocked with Party enthusiasts, and in fact, the Zeppelin establishment was sufficiently lacking in party zeal that the Nazis just got rid of most of their LTA capability.

    I wonder if we could do it again today, even with better technology.

    I got really into the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, studying the history and the technical problems encountered and overcome. The X factor for success was an outstanding depth of talent and full commitment at every level. There were plenty of problems in the 30 minutes leading to the 1969 landing, including Armstrong taking over manual control when the computer tried to land the LM in a boulder field.

    Today there would be intense, unrelenting pressure on managers at every level to ensure their teams were “diverse,” i.e. “few or preferably no White men.”

    In such an environment it would be very difficult to choose the absolute best people and give 100% focus on the mission demanded to deliver a successful outcome.

    Diaspora Jews (“men without chests” per Martin van Creveld) more manly? Setting aside all the other Asians, I think there are more Koreans than Jews at West Point.

    No, the popularity of Jewish men as spouses is likely a function of their overrepresentation in the upper strata of American society today, a status that is reached not by manliness, but another set of, shall we say, less salubrious, characteristics.

    Asian guy thinks, “THEY’RE STEALING OUR WOMEN!” (Unless you are 6’2″, athletic, and descended from a military figure back there of course. 😉 )

    This gets repeated ad nauseam by certain types around here, but the numbers on this is a bit more complicated: https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2017/05/18/1-trends-and-patterns-in-intermarriage/

    Among Asian newlyweds, these gender differences exist for both immigrants (15% men, 31% women) and the U.S. born (38% men, 54% women). While the gender gap among Asian immigrants has remained relatively stable, the gap among the U.S. born has widened substantially since 1980, when intermarriage stood at 46% among newlywed Asian men and 49% among newlywed Asian women.

    I know some E. Asian male/Jewish female couples – not as common as vice versa but they exist. They seem fine.

    That is not a match made in Heaven.

    Asians and Jews seem to get along pretty well – similar middle man minority type personalities, non-Christian, high IQ, value scholarship, etc.

    Much of this is wishful Jewish thinking. Mercantile middle man minority thing is predominantly a characteristic of Chinese or Indians from certain regions and clans/classes. It is not pervasive among all Asian groups. For example, Koreans are often thought in the same vein, but Koreans have virtually zero culture of small merchants back home and Korean immigrants were forced into it in the U.S. by circumstances rather than by desire or facility. That’s why there are multi-generational Chinese or Indian small-to medium-businesses, but rarely Korean ones.

    “Non-Christian”? That’d be a shocking news to the university campus Christian groups that are dominated by Asians. 70-80% of Koreans in the U.S. are church-going and Filipinos are Catholics overwhelmingly (and so are Vietnamese to a lesser extent). Even the Christian fraction of the Chinese in America (30%) is much higher than that in China. The only group that can be described as “non-Christian” are Indians, who, indeed, seem to be viewed as allies by Jews.

    “High IQ”? Yes, but very different structures. Jews possess high verbal IQ, East Asians visuospatial and quantitative.

    “Value scholarship”? Perhaps that was true once, but I don’t see very many Jews hankering to slave away as a teaching assistant and (later) a post-doc for years these days.

    Once again, I don’t think boomers can quite understand the horror of dating for any men.

    FIFY.

    At least the young ones are cute and are usually DTF. Older women are not and are even crazier.

    That school district is full of the worst wealthy white liberals you can imagine.

    “(…) , since retarded isn’t a race.”.
    Wanna guess the racial composition of those special needs students?

    I must question this conflation, started by Mr. Sailer himself in his post and then continued in a number of the comments, of special needs with retarded. Having had both social as well as learning difficulties myself, I attended schools and programs for students with special needs. No one ever suggested that I was retarded, however.

    (And, in fact, I at times found myself under-challenged and under-stimulated in the special Ed. schools I attended.)

    It is the height of hypocrisy to have a Jewish SJW attacking “whites” because of Jewish children being over-represented.

    That much I (a Jew) certainly agree with.

    Jews who refuse to allow any discussion of Jewish over-representation are in no position to lecture or scold non-Jews about “White privilege”, “diversity”, etc. And to Jews such as Charles Schumer who had the incredible chutzpah to complain that too many of the President’s judicial nominees were white males: I’m waiting for you to resign or at least announce that you will not seek re-election in order to give a fringe-coalition member the opportunity to take your place. Until then, put a sock in it.

    Dissident’s Basic Position on Antisemitism:
    Criticism of Jews and, certainly, of various tremendously powerful Jewish lobbies, does not necessarily constitute antisemitism.

    [MORE]
    Moreover, even when it comes to that which can legitimately be characterized as antisemitic*, at least some of the arguments and contentions advanced often contain at least some degree of validity and truth.

    It is perfectly reasonable and legitimate, for example, to question how we have arrived at a place where the parameters of acceptable public speech are set by groups such as the ADL. Or to expose, examine, challenge and oppose the immense power and influence that the Zionist State of Israel– a foreign entity— and its lobby wields over U.S. politics and foreign policy. Attempting to shut-down such discussion with cries of “antisemitism!” and “Nazi!” is not only unjust and unreasonable but also dangerously counterproductive. For such antics have the effect both of creating hostility against Jews everywhere as well as of exacerbating that which already exists.

    *And there is plenty here at Unzistan– both from featured authors as well as from comment-posters– that I have no qualms in characterizing as patently Judeophobic— a term I do not use lightly or indiscriminately.

    Yes, and even Yeager took a lot of heat for it. The Black officer filed a discrimination complaint against him. It was dismissed when Yeager proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he had bent over backwards to help the man in the program, but the man couldn’t cut it.

    Yeager was hopping mad, wanted to charge the man with insubordination (as was his right). He was pressured to drop it, which under the circumstances was probably a good move.

    In the Current Year Yeager would have been drummed out of the service.

    The extraordinary competence, toughness and mission focus of NASA in the 1960s all but impossible in the current climate.

    The infographic, while highly informative, understates the problem for Secular Jews, both in the US and Israel. It focuses on birthrates, while ignoring the average age of conception. The Ultra-Orthodox have children in their late teens and early 20’s. Secular Jews have children in their 30’s.

    For every generation in the Secular Jewish community, there have been three in the Ultra Orthodox. Add back in the fertility rates and extrapolate out 60 years, the Seculars are completely swamped.

    JFK was the first affirmative action president. March 12, 1961, shortly after his inauguration, he signed executive order 10925 ordering all federal agencies to take “ affirmative action” to hire more blacks.

    They could try. Unlike the present saps, Yeager has enough Situational Awareness to make that a costly proposition for them.

    The relevance to this thread of the “COAST flashlight boy” photo I posted, for anyone who may have wondered, is that the pictured boy appears to be of mixed White/East Asian extraction. I.e., the product of one of the very type of unions that were mentioned in a number of comments. (A printed version of the same photo was included in the meta materials that accompanied the COAST brand flashlight that I purchased several years ago.) On a related tangent, such mentions inspired me to finally commit to writing a memory from several years ago that has remained quite vivid in my mind.

    [MORE]

    With my father at a local park one autumn afternoon that was blessed with practically perfect weather, I witnessed a scene that I found quaintly romantic. On a promenade overlooking a scenic and vibrant vista, were spread a number of small tables. At one of these, an adorable lad of visibly East Asian extraction sat opposite a white (possibly Jewish) lass. The two youths each appeared to be around the still-tender age of thirteen and (thankfully) still considerably pristine. I watched them for a few moments as they conversed with each other. Then, they got up and walked away, at which point my father and I proceeded to take their place at the newly-vacant table.

    At no point did I see these two youths even so much as hold hands. But watching their faces as they interacted left little doubt but that there was romantic interest between them. The two exuded a charming innocence that I found reminiscent of Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher.

    The memory is especially meaningful for me, for it is one of the last I have with my father. Shortly after that, my father would pass on from this earthly existence.

    JFK also signed an executive order to allow Federal workers to unionize. Even FDR thought that was dumb.
