For a few weeks, the media eased up on all the Becky Bashing that started with the Starbucks Bathroom Crisis last spring because we were instead now supposed to Believe Women. But Kavanaugh got voted through anyway, so white women are back to being Lowest Victim on the Intersectional Totem Pole. From the NYT, some National News:

Babysitting While Black: Georgia Man Was Stalked by Woman as He Cared for 2 White Children

By Melissa Gomez
Oct. 9, 2018

As I pointed out last summer:

… these kinds of false-alarm Type I errors—false-positive calls to the cops to investigate a person who turns out to be law-abiding—happen countless times per day in this vast country of ours. So do Type II errors: false negatives of failing to alert the police in cases of a genuine lawbreaker.

But who can be expected to grasp such an esoteric concept as the inevitable tradeoff between Type I and Type II errors when there are Beckys to hate?

  2. How many male babysitters do you ever run into now, besides close relatives? A black man watching any children is kind of rare to begin with, even his own. ;-} That said, I think the hysteria in the worry that every man is a molester is way overblown nowadays. You need a background check to accompany the school kids on a field trip, even when they all know you are the Dad.

    Now, I didn’t catch the rest of this New York Times (need I say it again) article, but it seems to me that stalking is a way of holding off on calling the cops. They don’t want Becky to call the cops now. How do you think the lady, not to mention the kids, would feel, if it turned out two days later that this guy had drowned the kids in the river? Is it possible she’s got a conscience that just would not let what she saw slide?

    So, don’t go just calling the police, they’ve been telling her. You’ve got to be your own Jim Rockford then. Next you’ll be telling me she had a 2nd generation Camaro and worked for $200/day (plus expenses) and never got paid a lick of it.

    There would seem to be more money in advertising for Beckys than B’ques, so what gives? A lame attempt to Mean Girl the opposition out of the cool kid’s club unless they get with the social order? The problem for the Times is that the head cheerleader – and basically any other girl – is reserved for the head jock, not the blue-haired SJW chess club kids. Judge K. is a high-achieving family man, so desirable Beckys believed the star quarterback. THAT is the social order they couldn’t beat. Instead of putting feminist Feinstein front and center, they should have had a handsome white guy like Bill Clinton was back in the day come to white knight and protect Dr. Ford like women secretly desire from men. You cut with the grain, not against it.

    It seems that the Left has been stuck in a time loop on blacks since Skip Gates screamed and rattled Obama’s cage: amplify to the national level any situation where a black might plausibly argue he was in the right in an interaction with whites/police, but was injured/arrested anyway, and then always take the black’s side and make it all about racism/oppression against him. The 1980s-2008 seemed to be a time when the Left backed off this strategy and instead “waited for all the facts to emerge” before screaming racism, except in rare cases like Al Sharpton’s slander, which discredited him for a while before he stopped jumping so fast on the “start a riot” train.

    Let me get this straight. “Becky” saw a strange man with children who were probably not his. She followed the “if you see something, say something” advice and called the police. Sure, she was being a bit of a buttinsky, but we’re kind of encouraging that, in other contexts.

    The police officer who responded had an interaction with the male babysitter that was courteous and non-violent. He checked it out, made sure there wasn’t a problem, and there is, so far as we can tell from the article, there are no complaints against the cops for their handling of the investigation.

    Why isn’t this a feel-good story about a positive interaction between the police and the community?

    Apologies OT

    The UK Spectator has a terrific piece on the likely murder by the Saudi’s of an opposition journalist in Turkey that eschews the usual he-was-a-hero-for-democracy narrative. It reminds me of how the best foreign correspondents were allowed to be 30 years ago and how if you really want to understand a distant country you will learn more from a 10 minute private chat with a (good, if now rare) foreign correspondent than a week with the actual MSM.

    The fate of Khashoggi has at least provoked global outrage, but it’s for all the wrong reasons. We are told he was a liberal, Saudi progressive voice fighting for freedom and democracy, and a martyr who paid the ultimate price for telling the truth to power. This is not just wrong, but distracts us from understanding what the incident tells us about the internal power dynamics of a kingdom going through an unprecedented period of upheaval. It is also the story of how one man got entangled in a Saudi ruling family that operates like the Mafia. Once you join, it’s for life, and if you try to leave, you become disposable.

    In truth, Khashoggi never had much time for western-style pluralistic democracy. In the 1970s he joined the Muslim Brotherhood, which exists to rid the Islamic world of western influence. He was a political Islamist until the end, recently praising the Muslim Brotherhood in the Washington Post. He championed the ‘moderate’ Islamist opposition in Syria, whose crimes against humanity are a matter of record. Khashoggi frequently sugarcoated his Islamist beliefs with constant references to freedom and democracy. But he never hid that he was in favour of a Muslim Brotherhood arc throughout the Middle East. His recurring plea to bin Salman in his columns was to embrace not western-style democracy, but the rise of political Islam which the Arab Spring had inadvertently given rise to. For Khashoggi, secularism was the enemy.

    Revolution 2.0 with new woke purges?

    Haven’t revolutions traditionally waited until after the revolution to start the purges and show trials?We seem to be on new ground here especially given that no group is more enthusiastic about the war against the Becky than Beckys.

    The war against the bad whites is understandable during phase 1 because those bad whites were Christian evangelical and working class, groups that uni educated types on the coasts love to look down on. This fit with Tom Wolfe’s observation that most of politics and social exchanges count be understood by viewing them as competition for status.

    When the second phase expanded the definition of bad white to include anyone who voted for Trump, that still fit both Wolfe’s observation and traditional revolutionary strategy.

    Now that we are in phase 3 of get whitey where bad white has expanded to include all whites (but not fellow whites), we are on whole new ground. I guess you have to give credit where credit is due. Our (((fellow whites))) have succeeded so brilliantly in brainwashing uni educated whites that those whites are enthusiastic participants in the war against the Becky and the war on Becky can be used to motivate white women to vote Democratic.

    White women who love America as a home for the European Christian ancestral core of the United States are more likely than White men to favor an IMMIGRATION MORATORIUM and the mass deportation of illegal alien invaders.

    Beckys For An Immigration Moratorium And Illegal Alien Deportation is a national group that has indicated they might support the Pewitt GOP 2020 presidential primary campaign. It is all under the radar as yet, but big plans are in the works.

    White men are the ones who are hiring the illegal aliens and guest workers and visa workers and all the other programs that bring more foreigners into the United States.

    Granted, there are evil GOP White women wackos such a US House Representative Barbara Comstock who push mass legal immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders, but those types of GOP politician females are in the process of being removed. I very much hope Barbara Comstock loses her upcoming campaign. Kevin Yoder might as well be a female, I hope he loses too.

  31. There was an interesting incident here in liberal Madison recently.

    A black woman was campaigning for state representative. Since she won the Democratic primary, hammer odds of winning in November are about 100%

    She was campaigning in a neighborhood that is “changing”. She parked her car in front of a house that was occupied by a drug dealer. A neighbor sees an unknown car in front of a drug dealer’s home and calls the cops.

    Said future representative went to the national media to complain about racism and the cops harassing her for “campaigning while black”.

    The person who called the cops sent her an anonymous letter trying to explain, and to apologize for the mistake. She flat out rejected his apology.

    Since then the local, extremely liberal, media have looked into it. There were 21 previous calls to the cops about the house, which is now unoccupied.

    Seriously, this is an issue in Madison. Once a neighbor went out of his way to tell me it was OK to call the cops on suspicious strangers, even if they are minorities, since there had been some houses in my neighborhood broken into by blacks.

  32. OFF TOPIC

    Kavanaugh is on the side of Americans.

    Gorsuch is on the side of corporate America.

    Once more for fun, the surname Gorsuch means Goose Ford. That means an English guy got his belly full of ale and leaked it out, then a goose stepped over the used ale stream and that’s how you get the surname Gorsuch.

    Gorsuch is a globalizer who doesn’t see the difference between American citizens and foreigners. That’s how a globalizer corporate guy like Gorsuch would see it.

    This is more like social indoctrination to train the racist white lady not to call the police on her black neighbors, as they sprout up everywhere around white people until the neighborhood looks like the one they escaped from except this one has a white lady in it.
    I know this type of re-education very well, the Becky probably never called the police on anyone but is spied on relentlessly by her non-white neighbors, even followed to the store.

    Has anyone else thought that maybe white women like the submissive role of being on the bottom of the intersectional totem pole? Maybe they savor the attention they get from being degraded by the media and their “allies”.

    We aren’t talking about a demographic known for their self confidence. By definition, half of them are below average at their “hottest” age and just degrade from there. Unless they have children, a supportive husband and family; they really have nothing to live for but cats and causes.

    Yes, the patriarchy sucks for women. Their value largely lies in their looks (when young) and their ability to be good caregivers to children and family as they age. In exchange, beautiful young women and good mothers are highly sought and cherished.

    But modernity is even worse for women. They are expected to be employed and sleep around. CBF was a perfect example of a modern women: slutty in youth and professional in middle age. And unremarkably screwed up. Modern women live on antidepressants and Salon.

    White women are naturally submissive, not Valkeries. But white men have abandoned dominance so white women will choose to submit to their social justice betters.

    Unlike most of the accusations against white men, we are guilty of abandoning our dominance.

    Why does error persist? I am omniscient. So are you. As long as I have access to the Internet I know everything there is to know. This wasn’t always the case but lately I can look up the answer to any question and get some sort of answer instantaneously.

    I think I read about this state of affairs first in a Science Fiction novel by Niven and Pournelle. But instantaneous access to all the world’s knowledge doesn’t seem to have as much of an effect as one would have thought,

    Consider the Ford-Kavanaugh case. We heard from many commenters including US Senators that we the public should readily believe everything a woman said.

    Really?

    The assumption is that women lie less than men. Is that true? I looked it up. It depends exactly how you phrase the question but there seems to be universal agreement – women lie more frequently than men – some studies say twice as much. yet no cable newscaster seems to have pointed this out. I don’t remember any anchor desk commenter saying – “I looked it up on Google and it seems that men in fact lie less often than women”.

    The greater mendacity of females is part of our core of human knowledge but we ignore it even when it’s so easy to look up.

    How many male babysitters do you ever run into now, besides close relatives? A black man watching any children is kind of rare to begin with

    I don’t know why the Times decided to call him a babysitter. From his website
    https://www.inspiredbylewis.com it’s clear he runs some kind of camp, one of many that solve a problem well known to every two-income family without nearby grandparents.

    These camps try to distinguish themselves in some way: you’ve got your science camps, your drama camps, your sports camps. Granted I’ve never seen a man, much less a black man, in charge of such a camp. But they evidently exist, and a small number of idealistic white parents might seek them out as “diversity camp”. Hence the two white kids that raised that Becky’s concerns.

    As for going to Walmart for a fast food lunch, I don’t believe that was ever on the agenda where our kids went. But I guess, if you want the full diversity experience, it comes with Walmart and fast food.

  61. But who can be expected to grasp such an esoteric concept as the inevitable tradeoff between Type I and Type II errors when there are Beckys to hate?

    Not to mention the disproportionate consequences of the tradeoff. As in the story, the consequences of a busybody making a Type I error are pretty trivial. Basically, the innocent folks get indignant at even being suspected of anything but nothing bad actually happens.

    On the other hand, if you make a Type II error someone may end up like Kitty Genovese. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Kitty_Genovese

    So, how many times are you willing to risk a “How dare you sir” to prevent one brutal kidnapping, rape or murder?

    It’s an interesting and important public policy and moral issue. But the NYT of course reflexively fixates on the fact the guy was Black. (And apparently wearing a “fluorescent green shirt” was supposed to make him above reproach as well, go figure.)

    A “Becky” calls the police, but eventually still gets “murdered while white.”

    MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) – Police have released disturbing new details about the Memphis mother of two killed outside her home.

    Officials said the man charged in Amanda Petrowski’s murder is also no stranger to police. Santrez Traylor is charged with the murder of the mother of his young children.

    A neighbor saw Amanda Petrowski being run over by a car repeatedly in front of her home on Sunday night. Other neighbors said before that, they saw her being hit over and over in the head with a brick.

    WMC5 uncovered a history of domestic violence charges against Traylor involving the woman.

    In 2015 he was charged with domestic assault. Petrowski said she was attacked, and Traylor said he would kill her. A couple of months later, Traylor was charged with domestic assault.

    Petrowski said Traylor, her ex-boyfriend, was stalking her and tried to get into her house. She said he also called her 200 times when she said she did not want to have anything to do with him.

    Traylor was sentenced to four years behind bars. He was released in 2017. Just last month, Traylor was charged with domestic assault against Petrowski.

    In last month’s arrest Traylor bonded out while his case made it through the courts. It is not clear why Traylor was let out early in 2017.

    Good observation. But I know exactly why the NYT didn’t explain he was running a camp. It’s because everything they write is about cherry-picking the facts to fit into their pre-determined narrative. They wanted to run another in a series of articles about “_____ing while Black.” And “Running a (possibly unlicensed) day care operation while Black” doesn’t have the right ring to it.

    Your observation also makes sense out of the article’s otherwise random mention that he was wearing a “florescent green shirt,” which seems to be their camp uniform.

    Also, a quick look at Mr. Lewis’s picture on the website reveals that there is at least an 85% probability that he is gay. Which further assists in explaining why a white couple would (somewhat unusually) entrust their little girl to a Black man as her “babysitter.”

    @Pat Boyle

    What I see and read in the MSM is the opposite. They keep saying that women rarely lie about rape and cite some bogus study done by a women’s group that says that only 2% of rape accusations are false. Of course if you drill into such studies you find that they are very questionable in their methodology. And then there are “studies” that show that 1/3 of all women have been “sexually assaulted” or something like that. Again if you look closely at these studies, they define “sexual assault” to include having been whistled at and other minor affronts that don’t even rise to the level of misdemeanors let alone “rapes”.

    In related developments, one of the rape charges against Harvey Weinstein was dropped today because it appears that the encounter was consensual as Weinstein claimed.

    If you read the Washington Post story, the whole thing seems completely mysterious. The prosecutors have cut the victim loose for inexplicable reasons (I defy you to read the story and see where it actually states why the charges were dropped – it doesn’t). “[Accuser] Attorney Carrie Goldberg says prosecutors’ decision to “abandon” her client speaks to a system that needs to be reformed.” Gotta get rid of this whole presumption of innocence/ burden of proof thing, I guess.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/the-latest-weinstein-arrives-at-courthouse/2018/10/11/533d21a4-cd5b-11e8-ad0a-0e01efba3cc1_story.html

    It falls to the Hollywood Reporter to tell us what actually happened:

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/part-harvey-weinstein-criminal-case-dropped-by-manhattan-da-1151489

    Prosecutors said in a letter unsealed Thursday that they learned weeks ago that a female friend who was with Evans the night she met Weinstein had given a police detective a contradictory account of what happened.

    The woman, prosecutors said, told the detective in February that Weinstein had offered them money to flash their breasts during the restaurant encounter. They initially declined but Evans later told her she had gone ahead and exposed herself to the film producer in a hallway.

    The woman also told the detective that sometime after Evans’ office meeting with Weinstein, she had suggested what happened was consensual. Weinstein had promised to get her an acting job if she agreed to perform oral sex and she agreed.

    Prosecutors said the police detective didn’t share any of that information with prosecutors and urged the woman not to reveal details, saying “less is more,” and that she had no obligation to cooperate with investigators.

    Given the collusion of the police and the fact that the woman’s testimony is more than sufficient to introduce “reasonable doubt”, that alone would be enough to convince the prosecutors that they could never get a conviction (and keeping her in their case might take the other accusations against Weinstein down in flames as well). But then here is the last nail in the coffin: “Prosecutors also disclosed that they had discovered a draft email that Evans had written three years ago to a man who is now her husband that “describes details of the sexual assault that differ from the account” she provided to investigators. ” (Even that is too polite – in the email she apparently says that it was consensual).

    Suddenly the decision to “abandon” the accuser doesn’t seem so mysterious. But you could read the Wash Po article from beginning to end 10 times and not gain any understanding as to why the evil white male NY Prosecutors are pulling the plug on this poor innocent virginal victim.

    In the video, he told the police officer that he was babysitting.

    Lewis has a bachelor’s in psychology and is working on a master’s in child and adolescent development. His camp is for children with emotional and behavioral problems, a population he has experience working with in classrooms (probably as an aide). He also volunteers with homeless children and those in foster care.

    Lewis is in Georgia. Earlier this month, The New Yorker did an interesting story on GNETS, a collection of Georgia state-run schools/programs for children with emotional and behavioral problems who were essentially kicked out of their local school. Most of the students at GNETS schools are black boys and they receive almost no teaching.

    A teacher who worked for five years at a GNETS program called Coastal Academy, in Brunswick, told me, “We always had a sprinkling of middle-class white kids, maybe two or three, but they didn’t stay long. Everyone made sure they got out. It was the black students who were trapped there. They came in first grade and never left.” …

    Chris Vance, a special-education attorney in Atlanta, said that parents who can afford a lawyer’s fees are usually successful in fighting to prevent their children from going to GNETS. They will often hire a psychologist to analyze the student’s behavior in class and then draft a plan that allows the student to stay in the general classroom for most of the day and work with an aide who has been trained to understand how the student’s disability affects the way he learns. But, she said, “those who can’t afford an attorney will often homeschool their children, and so it becomes no education.”

    I usually oblige by doing the same thing back, most of the time they know you are mocking them.

    On the contrary, now everyone’s sex lives will be forever under scrutiny (men more so) and discussed in detail, especially if considered for an important position, public or private.

    And, the Afghan culture is so ewwww – sleeping with boys will never be accepted in the USA, I hope. My big fear (and disgust) is that Progressives want to blur the lines of acceptability to the point that adults will be able to f*ck children ( kids, never mind teens) some day. This is why I am so skeptical about this obsession with gender. At what point will adults be able to penetrate the vaginas and anuses of children under the age of 12 or something?

    So, this Khan guy, is a liability for Yale. If anything happens in the future, Yale has documented his behavior, the complaints, on their own forum, etc. A victim can sue Yale in the future (even if they are not a Yalie, just New Haven person) – and, what we just went through, victims can claim he raped them years from now.

Being a football coach as a career path strikes me as a tougher ladder to climb because so many guys love football that your typical high school assistant coach is being paid next to nothing. Being a public high school assistant football coach/PE teacher/Driver’s Ed teacher isn’t a bad job, though, if you can pass the tests.

    Yes, they are related in the sense that they are part of the same extended family but I am guessing that they are not close relatives. None of the sources I have found give the precise relationship. In the Arab world people have a LOT of cousins, 2nd cousins, etc. which doesn’t mean much. Bin Laden had a TON of siblings, cousins, etc. from his father’s various wives.

    According to Bloomberg:

    In Turkey, they’re known as the Kasikci family. Their most famous member until now was Adnan Khashoggi, the billionaire arms dealer…. Adnan Khashoggi’s father was Turkish, a doctor who married a Saudi woman and became court physician to King Abdulaziz, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia. That marked the family’s rise to prominence in Saudi Arabia. However, they’ve kept their ties to Turkey.

    It seems so rare that, sadly, it might have been statistically more likely that the Black babysitter was a kidnapper than their adoptive father.

    Good point, which of course the NYT and its ilk would never admit. With millions of unwanted black children in the country, blacks actually wishing to adopt hardly lack for choice. And given the rage expressed against white people who adopt black children, it seems unlikely they’d go the other way even if there were ample opportunity. Scary thoughts though.

    We don’t need the Klan. We don’t need racism. We don’t even need more laws. All we need is to actually enforce the laws that we already have and not give criminals any slack, whether they are black or white. But too often, black criminals especially are given slack because they offer up sob stories of how horrible their lives have been and because of a sort of exhaustion or ennui in the justice system – they are just so sick of seeing so many black offenders and of seeing the same offenders over and over again that they go easy on them or allow them to fall thru the cracks because they just don’t have room to keep half the black population locked up for their offenses.

    Charlie Samuel, at the moment he killed Lily, had already been convicted for 3 felonies (one of which was a prior abduction similar to Burk’s) and should have been in prison for life under the “3 strikes” law but somehow the justice system literally could not count to 3 and let him go. Even then he was supposed to be in some sort of half-way house but they gave him a “day pass”. And of course California has no effective death penalty (and Samuel was allowed to plead guilty in exchange for life imprisonment) so now the taxpayers of CA will get to feed and cloth this worthless human being for several decades more.

    Charlie Samuel is here with us because 300 years ago some rich white guys wanted cheap labor and now we are still dealing with the consequences 300 years later. It’s too late to change that, but we are still importing new future members of the permanent underclass 300 years later. That’s on us.

    ….as Scarlett searched anxiously a spare old negro, with grizzled kinks and an air of dignified authority, came toward her through the mud, his hat in his hand.

    [MORE]

    “Dis Miss Scarlett, ain’ it? Dis hyah Peter, Miss Pitty’s coachman. Doan step down in dat mud,” he ordered severely, as Scarlett gathered up her skirts preparatory to descending. “You is as bad as Miss Pitty an’ she lak a chile ‘bout gittin’ her feets wet. Lemme cahy you.”

    He picked Scarlett up with ease despite his apparent frailness and age and, observing Prissy standing on the platform of the train, the baby in her arms, he paused: “Is dat air chile yo’ nuss? Miss Scarlett, she too young ter be handlin’ Mist’ Charles’ onlies’ baby! But we ten’ to dat later. You gal, foller me, an’ doan you go drappin’ dat baby.”

    Scarlett submitted meekly to being carried toward the carriage and also to the peremptory manner in which Uncle Peter criticized her and Prissy. As they went through the mud with Prissy sloshing, pouting, after them, she recalled what Charles had said about Uncle Peter.

    “He went through all the Mexican campaigns with Father, nursed him when he was wounded — in fact, he saved his life. Uncle Peter practically raised Melanie and me, for we were very young when Father and Mother died. Aunt Pitty had a falling out with her brother, Uncle Henry, about that time, so she came to live with us and take care of us. She is the most helpless soul — just like a sweet grown-up child, and Uncle Peter treats her that way. To save her life, she couldn’t make up her mind about anything, so Peter makes it up for her. He was the one who decided I should have a larger allowance when I was fifteen, and he insisted that I should go to Harvard for my senior year, when Uncle Henry wanted me to take my degree at the University. And he decided when Melly was old enough to put up her hair and go to parties. He tells Aunt Pitty when it’s too cold or too wet for her to go calling and when she should wear a shawl. . . . He’s the smartest old darky I’ve ever seen and about the most devoted. The only trouble with him is that he owns the three of us, body and soul, and he knows it.”
