NYT: Cruz and Rubio Are "Not White"

In recent days, the New York Times has been worked up over the White People Menace. For example:

What It’s Really Like to Work in Hollywood*
(*If you’re not a straight white man.)

That’s why the the man who made the most money in Hollywood, David Geffen and his $6 billion, is straight.

Screenshot 2016-02-26 17.36.34

Oh, wait, Geffen has famously been not straight since his ill-fated fling with Cher in the 1970s.

Julia Roberts may not take the NYT’s premise that her career in Hollywood has been held back by her lack of straight white maleness as seriously as modern manners demand.

But Julia’s a trouper, so she gamely came up with this suitable anecdote:

Today, the NYT is back with a front page blockbuster revelation:

The Faces of American Power, Nearly as White as the Oscar Nominees
By HAEYOUN PARK, JOSH KELLER and JOSH WILLIAMS FEB. 26, 2016

We reviewed 503 of the most powerful people in American culture, government, education and business, and found that just 44 are minorities. Any list of the powerful is subjective, but the people here have an outsize influence on the nation’s rules and culture.

But what I was struck by was the New York Times’ statement by implication that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are “not white:”

Screenshot 2016-02-26 17.46.14

Screenshot 2016-02-26 17.47.45

So, Conquistador-Americans Ted Cruz, Robert Menendez, and Marco Rubio are, despite appearances to the contrary, “not white,” but self-identified Native American Elizabeth Warren is not not white.

Screenshot 2016-02-26 18.03.29Got that?

There will be a quiz.

Other paladins of nonwhite power, according to the NYT, include Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti, who looks like a sleeker, more expensively-suited version of the dad on Modern Family. (I can vaguely recall buying one of the mayor’s grandfather’s expensive suits around 1982 for job interviews.)

  3. Jews are white again!!!

    Social Construction of Race, Racial Construction of Society.

    But white or not white, ELITES dominate.

    Most elites are white(or Jewish), but most whites are not part of the elite. Worse, the elites, whatever they may be, don’t care about the white masses.

    It’s like Zimbabwe. Mugabe and the elites are black. But they don’t care about the black masses.
    So, to say that Zimbabwean blacks rule Zimbabwe would be rather pointless.

    So, who cares if the elites are white when they don’t care about the white masses?
    If white elites are so good for whites, why are they trying to replace native whites with foreigners?

    With leaders like Merkel and McCain, who needs non-white elites?

    If people shared that NYT article and pointed out that 40%-80 percent of those industries were controlled by a group that comprises 2% of the population, the NYT would think twice about running another “old white men” *cough cough* article.

  7. In fairness, according to the rules of American ethnicity — with the benefits of affirmative action and so on — Rubio and Cruz really aren’t “white.”

    The rules are insane, of course, but Rubio and Cruz, under these insane rules, are Latino rather than white.

    Elizabeth Warren, on the other hand, is not Native American under any rules. She has no legal status as a tribal Indian and journalists investigating her family tree found zero evidence that she has any Native American ancestry whatsoever.

    NY Times speak with forked tongue.

  9. Once again, I am unable to understand how this hating-on-white-people thing is supposed to work as a long-term strategy. Children being born today will never know a world in which jokes about a black president were a staple gag of stand-up comics.

    I probably sound like a broken record on this point, but has the left ever bothered to think about how they might be setting up a situation where the White Power Skinheads eventually seem like the most reasonable people in the room? Why do they think the charge of “racism” will still hold its sting when nobody is available who can calmly and reasonably explain why we decided it was bad in the first place?

  10. Is it possible that this is just a socially acceptable way for whites to occasionally brag about how they’re still number 1 and how they just can’t seem to stop winning at everything? :-) I mean, the list is diverse enough to show that minorities of all types get to compete for the top spots so victory is all the sweeter!

    Seriously, I doubt the Times really expects to stoke any real outrage with this article. It’s just an interesting article which needed an acceptable hook, I guess.

  13. You can be both Latino and white as the definition of Latino is someone from or descended from people from Latin America, and Latin America is defined as those countries or islands in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean where Spanish or Portuguese is spoken.

    So you could be an Argentine of German descent and still be Latino and white. Both Rubio and Cruz appear to be of white Spanish descent mixed with other European, and not Native American, African, or Taino, as far as one can determine.

  15. What about Clarence Thomas? Eric Holder? How about Sharpton, Jackson, and Farrakhan? Do they not wield some influence in the US? How about Ben Carson, he’s running for president after all? Surely Obama, the great unifier who was half-white when up for election but quickly turned black, should be a non-white on this list. If you can’t list the president as someone of power, then who can you list? Probably plenty of others to add to this list. About the only time the NYT has intentionally tried to leave brown people out of a picture. Usually they’re trying to pack them in front and center to the exclusion of white guys.

  17. More tedious anti-White stuff, by conspicuous status signalers on how well-off they are, they don’t have to worry about a tidal wave of the Third World coming in.

    What this signals to the ordinary White man is that the door is closing, forever, to any ambition they might have to even a middle class life. Its like a Trump election ad, given that an anti-White jihad will get up every White person’s back that is not extremely secure, meaning Hollywood big shots who made their pile and a few other corporate types.

    Lets be honest about what this really is — slavery justification shaming. Most of the “prosperity” since the 1970s consists of semi-slave labor of illegal aliens working dangerous jobs with low pay and making the labor costs of elites and those who aspire to be elite but remain stuck in the chattering classes just dirt cheap.

    All those “fabulous” ethnic restaurants? Or hipster trendy ones? Built on slave illegal labor. Same with the kitchen and bath remodels, the coke supplied to people like Matty Yglesias, who thought Evelyn Waugh was a woman, and the hookers supplied to the various media/corporate types. [The Secret Service penchant for Latina hookers is likely something just picked up by the examples of the people they protect and serve under -- in other words Washington's upper management.]

    Incidentally, Cruz isn’t even full Cuban like Rubio. He’s half-Cuban, half-Irish/Italian I believe. Plus he has a Southern accent and is a Southern Baptist, or at least pretends to be.

    Rubio at least is full Cuban, and he had parents who were a bartender and a maid and apparently worked at mob affiliated casinos and hotels, which sounds really Cuban-y.

Pure white Spaniards and Spanish/Irish mixes are “minorities” just because of their Spanish names, buts somehow Ernest Moniz is not. Jews at 2.5% of the population aren’t a minority and somehow are white despite their genetic dissimilarity. The ugly truth is that the NYT will tell any lie that fits the narrative.

  32. The key strategy of Cultural Marxism is to enlist sexual minorities as vanguards of the “revolution” AKA “What is good for Jews?”.

    LGBTers may make up 2-5% of the population but they make up 30-40% of the NYT editorial board and an even higher percentage of its non Jewish membership.

    The “intersectionality” of non-white and/or LGBT and/or Jewish accounts for much of the ferocity of the “Anti-White” hatred in the Cultural Marxist Media.

    This extends to the Neoconservative movement as well where there is an active enlistment of various stooges who are closet cases, like Lindsey Graham, Rubio, Richard Lugar????….

    The question remains that while Rubio is obviously gayer than a 3 dollar bill and therefore a blackmailed Neocon lackey, what really qualifies Ted Cruz as a true minority and a “friend” to Jews???

    Ted Cruz true “minority status” is that he is an ultra fringe Christian Dispensationalist/Zionist who believes that Israel is entitle to lands as far north and east as the Euphrates and west to the Nile.

    The problem with Trump and his supporters are that they are overwhelmingly cisgendered Christian whites who are not Dispensationalists.

  35. “So, who cares if the elites are white when they don’t care about the white masses?”

    “If white elites are so good for whites, why are they trying to replace native whites with foreigners?”

    You continually throw around the terms “elites”, “native whites”, “white masses”, and “anti-whites”. It would be actually helpful if you were able to define them explicitly.

    Native whites are technically foreigners. They were never the original inhabitants of the Americas. They arrived here as invaders, I mean settlers and immigrants.

    Regarding the elites, do they not have the liberty to serve their own interests? Must they always represent their race collectively, and neglect their own individual pursuits?

    Must all whites be in lockstep philosophically and politically? Do whites have the liberty to make their own decisions when it comes to racial matters?

    Rather than complain about these “elites”, why don’t you actually run for political office on an “anti-elite campaign”? Are you that impotent as to not be able to challenge the elites?

  40. I think the distinction here is if you are Hispanic and approved by the establishment then you are classified as non-white. If you are Hispanic and despised by the establishment then you are classified as white. They haven’t completely caught on to the convenience of their own game. They could apply this logic with a twist when it suits them, for example Black thugs could be classified as non-Black so as to suit the current narrative. Then instead of suppressing stories about Black on Black crime, they could pose these as non-Black on Black crimes. If your political views change so could your classification.

  41. the conquistadors are considered white, but their children born in the Americas and all their descendents are automatically classified as Latino , even their blond blue-eyed GGGGG grandchildren born in Canada to Irish mothers will be labeled hispanic if they have a Spanish surname….it is almost like the one drop rule…..if one of your 16 GG grandparents were born in Mexico , you qualify as a Latino…even if the GG grandparent born in Mexico was an immigrant from Germany.

    Thus I advise most Whites in America to start adopting Spanish surnames , so your children and grandchildren can take advantage of the goodies available to Latnos.

    The Italians should start demanding to be categorized as Latinos , Mayor De Blasio would embrace it and the mafia could use their minority status to target the RICO statutes which racially profile them.

  46. The issue is do they trade on the status as a”minority” to help achieve status in society? Steve’s diversity before diversity series was about folk like vp Curtis and Dumas who were unquestionably non-white but unquestionably part of the culture. A Rubio trades on his ancestry a lot more than a Cruz and the ur example is BHO adopting a American black identity after college. Nothing against them for endorsing him but all the “supposedly” republican pundits talking about the picture of Haley,Scott and Rubio and wanting that to be the future pissed me off. I can support Scott because I like his policies and be against Rubio because of his, but how much melanin is on stage shouldn’t enter into it.

    Maybe we should have a minimum national melanin quota. For the parties ie 1 Tim Scott equals 6 Ben Jealous or 3Charlie Rangel or is that too directly racist?

  53. It’s obviously stupid to say that Menendez, Rubio and (especially) Cruz aren’t white, but there would be some logic in it if one was engaging in some sort of pro-white advocacy. For instance, a radical white supremacist who couldn’t stand seeing a single nonwhite in the Senate might say “look, there are six nonwhites in the Senate! This is outrageous!” As long as no one challenged the premise that Menendez, Cruz and Rubio aren’t white and the premise that having more than three nonwhites in the Senate is bad, the white supremacist would have a very solid case.

    What I really don’t understand is why these SJWs cry about too many white people in power (or as Oscar nominations) while simultaneously counting white people as non-white. Here we see this with Cruz, Menendez and Rubio and I’ve also seen it done with white Mexicans counted as non-white in an article about how the #OscarsSoWhite. I mean obviously SJWs are stupid but one would think that, at least at the purportedly elite level of the NYT, they could find SJWs that have enough sense to not sabotage their very own arguments. I guess there’s not a single SJW with a triple digit IQ.

  54. This guy claims that the MRCA of all humans was alive 6-7 mya. This is off by well over an order of magnitude. Not that this error bothers me personally but it makes his argument look weak. An SJW only needs to, accurately, say “actually the MRCA of all humans was around only about 1 to 2 kya.” Actually I’ve seen studies that say the MRCA of all humans was around only a few thousand years ago but even if we go back to the point when all humans with any descendants alive today are the ancestors of all humans alive today, that wouldn’t have been more than 1 or 2 kya. Of course in those thousands of generations a lot of evolution has taken place.

    Not only is he not even in the same league of minorityhood as Scott (and to a lesser extent Haley), but that is just a dumb thing to say to begin with. You never saw Thatcher say “look how inclusive the Tories are!” She never listed her gender as a reason to support her or a reason to laud her party. This whole “look how diverse we are” comes from a place of weakness. “Please don’t hate us, progressives! Look how diverse we are!”

  61. Native whites are technically foreigners. They were never the original inhabitants of the Americas. They arrived here as invaders, I mean settlers and immigrants.

    First, as others have pointed out the Indians did not just spring up in North America. They came from another continent as well. Additionally once in the Americas the various tribes fought with one another over territory. So more than likely territory inhabited by one tribe was territory that was forcibly taken from another.

    Second, the USA is more than just a geographical unit on a map. If you consider the USA to just be a geographic entity, then you could claim that whites and even the Indians are invaders. But since the USA is much more than geography and encompasses unique political, economic and social institutions, you could look a the creators of those institutions as the true natives. In that case whites, at least those descendant from the Founding Stock, would be considered native.

    After all millions of people are not coming here today for our geography. There are much nicer geographic locations with more favorable climes in the New World. Nor are people coming here to live in Cherokee or Apache societies. They are coming here because of what was created by our unique political, economic and social institutions.

  62. Or they think straight up that Iberians aren’t white. Obviously Iberia does have a different history than northern Europe, and certainly many Iberians could pass for natives in “nonwhite” countries like Lebanon or Morocco, but it’s still pretty stupid to lump Antonio Banderas in with Hooleeahn Castro.

  65. Hence all the Affirmative Action for Russians, Italians, Hungarians, etc. And the “get out of badwhiteness free” cards for same. And the total lack of hostility toward them from media and academia. Etc.

    Yeah, after 50+ years of gangster movies in which a pot-bellied thug in a torn wife-beater drools linguini down his chin, I always think “Thank God the New York Times likes us!”

    Not to make too much of a point of this, but once you leave the American South, hostility to encroaching inner-city savagery – blacks in particular – has generally been left to the “Russians, Italians, Hungarians, etc.” (See Hawkins, Yusuf – or ask Al Sharpton about the provenance of his stab wound.) Whenever real-life orcs have been storming the bridge, you can always find “Americans of northwestern European ancestry”….or at least their backs, as they are generally in full retreat.

    I believe this phenomena even has an official name: “white flight”. (Too bad the English, Germans, Swedes, etc, can’t practice it in their own homelands, or they surely would.)

  68. “Regarding the elites, do they not have the liberty to serve their own interests? Must they always represent their race collectively, and neglect their own individual pursuits?”

    You dammus.

    No, they don’t have to serve MY interest — if I only cared about MY interest, I’d be a far-left socialist for free stuff for me — , but they should NOT go against the interest of the people. If successful people wanna make money and become rich, they have my blessing(and that of most Americans who appreciate initiative in people). But if they use their power to hurt the people in general, then they be held accountable.
    Lately, I’ve been gravitating more toward patriotic socialism not because I want free stuff. I never felt envy for the rich. I never felt bothered by inequality per se. I began to turn against the elite capitalists because being successful isn’t enough for them. Their greed is boundless. They will ever undermine and destroy their own nation to get ever richer and richer. Globalism made the super-richer superduper-richer. Nothing is enough for them.
    And they don’t stop at economics. They are know-it-all ideologues who push nation-destroying libertarianism, massive open borders, decadent homo agenda, etc.
    They are utopians or mistopians who think they should use their riches to remake the world. That Zuckerberg turd boy is working with German traitor elites to drown that nation with Arab-semite invaders.

    It’s like this. Selling bad drugs isn’t just about economics. That’s why drug-dealing is illegal(though it seems pot isn’t so bad and maybe should be legalized). If selling certain things is bad for the community, it should not be sold. It’s not just about business and individuals. Look at Mexico. Corrupt politicians, corrupt cops, corrupt drug dealers, corrupt everyone just act in self-interest and have no sense of nationhood(despite all the empty rhetoric about MEHICO!!)

    Furthermore, elites are not content to just be rich. They wanna change society by buying politicians, controlling powerful institutions, lobbying government.

    Suppose there is a forest and lake that is a great benefit to the community. Suppose some rich guy uses his money to lobby the local government to allow him to chop down trees and pollute the lake for short-term profit. Can we isolate his individual action from the interests of the community? Elites have great power. They can affect other lives. That’s why they have to care. Also, while it’s impossible to fix and save the world, much can be done within the nation, therefore, elites should serve their own nation above all. Consider some rich Zionist bribed environment groups like Sierra Club to support massive immigration.
    Once the world is taken over by globalist elites, we have people like Soros making trouble all over — Ukraine, Syria, Ferguson, etc — while ripping everyone off.

    “Must all whites be in lockstep philosophically and politically? Do whites have the liberty to make their own decisions when it comes to racial matters?”

    No, one of the great things about America was the power of individualism. Most revolutions fail in the long run cuz they are overly collectivist. A great leader comes along and tells everyone to obey, and people obey. So, nothing get done unless the leader conceives of and approves it. This is why all those lefty Latin American revolutions fail. Some ‘great man’ comes along, makes a lot of promises, and people just wait around to be told what to do or to get free stuff.

    America was different. Americans understood that real revolutions happen at the individual level in all walks of life. True revolution isn’t about top-down command structure but about brilliant minds in art, science, technology, business, culture, music, and etc doing their own thing. Of course, the government and institutions have to maintain property rights and rule of law.

    This is why US has been on revolutionary footing since the beginning. A million micro-revolutions are more important than one big macro-revolution. The reason why USSR failed was cuz it was about macro-revolution micro-managed by the state.
    America was about micro-revolutions by countless individuals adding up to macro-outcomes all around.

    But no one is just an individual. No one’s life is just about business or money. It is about race, culture, and history.
    Of course, some people may say that they feel no affinity or loyalty to any race, culture, or group. Okay fine. But then, the people should also have the freedom to reject such a person since he rejects them and only sees people as consumers to get rich from, as pigs feeding at the trough. If rich globalist Americans have no feeling for the American middle class and workers, okay. Then, American workers should give the middle finger to them too. It’s understandable why the globo-rich don’t give a crap about nationalism. They can move and live luxuriously anywhere. They fail to realize that for the vast majority of people, their nation is essentially all they have.
    If a nice small town in America is flooded with immigrants and ‘refugees’, the people of that community lose even the one thing that was dear to them: a world to call their own.

    Furthermore, individualism seems to be a poor center of one’s being. How long do individuals last? Just several decades. Making individualism at the center of being is like making believe that one is the center of time and space. Ridiculous. We are links in a continuum.
    And indeed, people who balance individualism with identity are the ones who are most formidable. Look at Jews. Highly individualistic but also profoundly into identity and community. It goes to prove that one can excel as individual and still live for something greater and deeper. Your average Jewish individual lives for 80 yrs. Jewish race has lasted for 3,500 yrs. An existence of mere 80 yrs should trump the history, identity, and culture of 3,500 yrs? That’s just vapid narcissism. No individualism can live forever(not even close) but identity can be passed down forever. Individualism is trapped in a lifetime. Identity, culture, history, and community can last through the ages. Those who only think in terms of ‘me, me, me’ only belong to themselves. So, if they feel nothing for us, we should feel nothing for them. (But notice how powerful globalist Jews, who sneer at us and our interests, say that we should do everything to support and safeguard their interests of race, identity, and history. So, the likes of Roger Cohen spits on our identity and interests but then says we must do ever more to support Israel. It’s amusing that Jews don’t us to be like them. Ironically, when Jews see gentiles thinking and acting like Jews, they see ‘Nazis’.)

    “Rather than complain about these “elites”, why don’t you actually run for political office on an “anti-elite campaign”? Are you that impotent as to not be able to challenge the elites?”

  69. The Italians should start demanding to be categorized as Latinos, Mayor De Blasio would embrace it

    So would Cicero and Caesar have, if the question had ever been put to them, “Who is more ‘Latin’, an Italian or the mixed offspring of Iberians and…um, far-far-eastern Scythians”?

    Full conflict of interest disclosure: we Ashkenazi Jews are more or less half-Italian by ancestry.

  83. Nice synopsis of the elites and the Jews.

    But notice how powerful globalist Jews, who sneer at us and our interests, say that we should do everything to support and safeguard their interests of race, identity, and history. So, the likes of Roger Cohen spits on our identity and interests but then says we must do ever more to support Israel. It’s amusing that Jews don’t us to be like them. Ironically, when Jews see gentiles thinking and acting like Jews, they see ‘Nazis’.)

    Of course they don’t want us to copy them(that is the lower classes), as it basically nullifies their strategies for wealth and power acquisition. They want us to remain prey. Hence the constant promotion by the elites of “rugged individualism” over tribalism and nationalism(both of which are countered by the elites promotion of organized sports to absorb and redirect the emotional energy of lower class whites).

    Look at the political establishment/Wall Street over the last 70 or so years. All they promoted for working and middle-class whites was cut throat capitalism and individualism and socialized capitalism for the wealthy and connected. Gold for thee and stones for the rest of us.

    As a result white American society began to atomize and rot, community and cultural support for individuals withered and died and then replaced by consumerism, drugs, TV and organized sports. Poor substitutes for the organic emotional, intellectual and spiritual safety net built up over thousands of years.

    It also made us easy prey for the elites to shove their insane utopian schemes down our throats. We were are so fragmented we couldn’t even mount any sort of defense against them.

  85. “First, as others have pointed out the Indians did not just spring up in North America. They came from another continent as well. Additionally once in the Americas the various tribes fought with one another over territory. So more than likely territory inhabited by one tribe was territory that was forcibly taken from another.”

    Really, Mr. Historian? I did not know such facts. So what you are saying is that throughout history 1) there are inhabitants of one land, who had migrated there, who have been removed by force by another group, or 2) there are inhabitants of one land, who had migrated, who enabled other groups of people to join them. Interesting…

    What happens when the interest of the people is are the interests of elites?

    “I began to turn against the elite capitalists because being successful isn’t enough for them. Their greed is boundless.”

    It’s capitalists. Not “elite capitalists” or “crony capitalists”. Do you propose strict laws to limit their machinations? What are the potential consequences of such laws?

    “They are know-it-all ideologues who push nation-destroying libertarianism, massive open borders, decadent homo agenda, etc.”

    Assuming that this is the agenda of the elites. Could it not be that this agenda are the interests of the people?

    “That Zuckerberg turd boy is working with German traitor elites to drown that nation with Arab-semite invaders.”

    Just when you were speaking some sense, you have to go back to your default. Your Jooish fetish is beyond the pale.

    Is it not the same tactics employed by your beloved white nationalists?

    “Consider some rich Zionist bribed environment groups like Sierra Club to support massive immigration.”

    Source, please.

    “No, one of the great things about America was the power of individualism.”

    So, you state that whites do not have to be lockstep philosophically and politically. Does that not defeat your “anti-white” meme whenever whites make their own individual decisions regarding race, culture, and identity?

    “If a nice small town in America is flooded with immigrants and ‘refugees’, the people of that community lose even the one thing that was dear to them: a world to call their own.”
