We have proposed (and are actively developing) a broadly integrated system that quantifies one’s RacialValue. Think FICO score. We daily sample a wide range of cultural, and a drunken baker’s dozen other indicators (think Rabelais, and Oracle of the Bottle), and after much sausage making, quantify it as the WhoWeAre index. This value is a vital

in our algorithms, and captures what the current BeautifulPeople, our betters and cultural elites, think is correct.

Any person within the polygon defining US border boundaries will have this value keyed to SSN. (Well, we’d better get a more legit identifier, as SSNs are traded like candy these days at any street corner where day laborers loiter, in the shadows.)

Currently in negotiation with Pantone regarding licensing. In the near future, the equivalent of the “What’s your sign?” pickup line will be “What’s your racial value?” Racval, in the vernacular.

Angel investors most welcome!

We can and will, in the brilliant future, quantify our MulCultVal.

Also, some trolls with chops could put together a website that quantifies the Progressive Stack by asking visitors questions about who possesses more Intersectionality.

Questions could be asked in the abstract. E.g., Who has more intersectionality?

A. A transgender person

B. A black person

And in the particular by using celebrities, such as asking respondents to opine upon whether, say, Elizabeth Warren or Lin-Manuel Miranda has more Intersectionality.

Also, fictional characters should compete: e.g., Hermione Granger vs. Chewbacca.

The value of each respondent’s opinions could in turn be weighted by how much intersectionality they possess as of the moment.

Also, users would be encouraged to weigh in on philosophical questions like: Is intersectionality different from diversity?

The interface should be nontrolling and sincere to attract lots of participation from true believers in intersectionality who simply have different opinions on who is the most intersectional of all.

Ideally, the system would would result in lots of:

A. Instability, with who is on top of the progressive stack varying daily. Audiences should be encouraged to check in daily to see who is Number One today and, if they don’t like it, change it.

B. Incoherence, with lots of A>B, B>C, and C>A type results.

    Cook County, which includes the county seat of Chicago, is home to the No. 1 and No. 7 fastest-growing concentrations of $200,000-plus households. No. 1 is, ironically, the area around where the Cabrini-Green public housing projects once stood. Cabrini-Green was notorious for violent crime, poverty and de facto racial segregation until its demolition beginning in the 1990s at the behest of the Chicago Housing Authority.

    Even back then, authorities fretted that redevelopment plans might displace low-income families. They were right to be worried. Two decades later, the area’s concentration of $200,000-plus households has skyrocketed from zero to 39 percent. For some of the longtime residents who remain, the neighborhood’s transformation has been isolating.

    Latanya Palmer, 53, grew up in the Cabrini Rowhouses. While she moved into a nearby mixed-income development in 2005, the hypergentrification has occasionally made her feel like a stranger in her own home. That sentiment echoes across the country, as poor and working-class Americans are increasingly pushed aside by frenzied development and prohibitive living expenses.

    “It looks beautiful,” Palmer said of the neighborhood now, though she recalled how property managers early on would berate former Cabrini-Green residents for sitting on their own stoops. “They made us feel like we were less than human.”

    Palmer recently got a job as a home health aide and hopes to move out of her subsidized unit. Still, she laments what’s been lost. “As poor as we were growing up, I didn’t realize we were poor—because it felt like a community,” she said. “Now it doesn’t feel like a community.”

    The census tract in question includes the still-standing, albeit largely vacant row houses where Palmer grew up. But now there are luxury condominiums and apartments, too. They sport rooftop terraces and sparkling views of the city’s affluent Gold Coast and Lake Michigan beyond. A three-bedroom penthouse can cost around $2 million.

    Basically, they cook and clean and do chores for the elderly, like get groceries. Some people they might see for only an hour, others longer. They have a very very basic training in health issues - like maybe paper tests or short lessons. Some of the people they see might be living alone, others with their families.

    I would not say it is a very desirable job. Low paid. Often part time, with odd hours. There's a lot of blacks in it. Many Haitians and Africans. The few whites are often requested by the older whites in preference. Blacks are complained about for being lazy, starting kitchen fires, etc.

    This would mean that Intersectionality is somehow similar to Faster-Than-Light Travel, with the “arrow of Intersectionality” varying depending on the Observer, similar to the “arrow of Causality” which would vary depending on Observers if FTL were possible.

    This is a problem. It is well known that one can only quantify the IsNotWhoWeAre index. This has maybe something to do with an Heisenberg Unintersectionality Condition, not sure. More research is needed.

    Questions could be asked in the abstract. E.g., Who has more intersectionality?
    A. A transgender person
    B. A black person

    In other words, the real key to power or preference isn’t so much intersectionality but focality.

    It’s like ‘all roads lead to Rome’. Rome isn’t an equal among other points of power. It is The Power, so all lines must connect with Rome.

    Because blacks are holy, they don’t have to make an effort to intersect with others. They have something precious just by being black. They can just sit still and wait for others to come to them for blessing. So, non-blacks must make an effort to intersect with the black focal point.

    Jews have tremendous focality. Republicans, Democrats, whites, blacks, homos, and all groups go out of their way to demonstrate how their own interests intersect with and are aligned with Jewish ones. It’s like Texas firing a Palestinian-American teacher because its interests intersect with those of Israel(and certainly not with the much loathed Palestine).

    Also, since white goyim have lost their once estimable focality due to Jewish-controlled PC’s defamation of the white race, they have no intrinsic value as a people. They must gain worth by intersecting with the Jews who got the juice, the power. Now, given that Jews have been at the forefront of white-vilification(and given that Jews feel about white Americans as they do about Palestinians), one might think white folks(especially conservatives) would side with Palestinians against Jews. But no. Why not?
    Because conservatives have an innate tendency to suck up to power, authority, and hierarchy. Since Jews got the most power, white conservatives tend to cuck to Jewish Power as their massuh. Also, conservatives tend to be more religious, and they tend to have this overly idealized vision of Israel as fulfillment of Prophecy. Also, conservatives tend to be more race-conscious, and despite the fact of Jewish antipathy, they still prefer to side with whom they perceive to be White Jews against Brown Arabs. Finally, some whites figure that the best way to beat Jewish power is to out-Jew the Jew. By showing that white Christians care for Israel even more than Liberal American Jews do, they are seeking co-ownership of Zionism. So, in the white Christian conservative imagination, the battle lines are between good white Christianfolk allied with faithful Orthodox Jews(and militant Zionist Jews) AND various heathens around degenerate Jews.

    Intersectionality, in and of itself, is really useless. Suppose American Indians, Guatemalan Americans, Burmese Americans, Iranian-Americans, and West Virginian hillbillies all arrived at some intersectionality. Would it matter? After all, a bunch of groups are intersected in common interest. But, it doesn’t matter because none of them possess the focality of specialness or holiness. There isn’t much to be gained by intersecting with Burmese-Americans or Eskimo Americans or El-Salvadorian-Americans, and etc. Most Americans, from top to bottom, doesn’t care about those groups.

    Indeed, being intersected with one of the focal groups — Jews, blacks, homos/trannies — counts for more than being intersected with many others without focality. It’s like owning a baseball card of a star player counts for more than 10,000 or even 100,000 cards of non-star players.

    And no matter how much intersectionality your group has attained, it all comes to naught IF it goes against the interests of one of the focal groups. Suppose Hindu Americans, Chinese Americans, Iranian Americans, Russian Americans, Venezuelan Americans, and Palestinian Americans all intersect on the issue of Israel-Palestinian conflict and support BDS. Now, that’s a lot of intersectionality. So, will it be a boon for them?
    No, the fact is none of them have focality whereas Jews have tremendous focality. Since they(without focality) stand against Jews with super-focality, their intersectionality will be a plague upon them all. They will all be smeared with ‘hate’ whereas any group that loops around the Jewish focality will be showered with praise and prizes.

    Given how the power really works, intersectionality is one of the biggest shams. What really matters if the power of focality, and only a few groups have focal power. Jews have it, and because they have so much power and money, they get to decide who else gets to share the honor. And it’s blacks and homos. Blacks are too profitable for Jewish moguls; furthermore, they are most effective in promoting white guilt and white (jungle) fever, both of which are effective in paralyzing white pride and confidence. And homos are such good and useful allies of Jews in promoting minority-supremacism, hedonism/narcissism, and fashioning a neo-religion to replace Christianity, a creed that Jews hate most.

  26. The interface should be nontrolling and sincere to attract lots of participation from true believers in intersectionality who simply have different opinions on who is the most intersectional of all.

    And it will be enforced by Interpol.

    should be nontrolling

    We have comptrollers, but now we’ll need nontrollers to assist them.

    Hey, wait… where do trolls fit in intersectionally? We can’t be guilty of xotikophobia. Or satyrophobia. Or whatever.

    But IntersectionalityScore.com presumes it knows the answers to these questions. I think it would be more fun to ask the questions and get the intersectionalists arguing over the answers.

    It's not a racket for the workers. They work hard and get paid very little.

    Every black woman working as a home health aide is a black woman who is not ruining a hospital or occupying space in a government office.

  30. OT, but speaking of intersectionality points, the theme of my leftie friends’ pseudobible, i.e. To Kill a Mockingbird, has always been sneakily problematic. That is, the conflict in the story pits a MeToo gal, Mayella, against a noble innocent unjustly-accused black man, Tom Robinson, and it’s all sorted out by a white man, i.e. Atticus Finch, that bespectacled but bold hero.

    This Nice White Savior story has been more or less okay (or OK or even maybe OKAY) until recently, but as we all know, things have changed as the right kind of white people are becoming more and more woke with each Progressive Stack they’re sent to the back of.

    Thankfully, we’ve got a resolution to this crisis. Aaron Sorkin, of TV melodrama fame, has revisioned TKaM for the stage. In a first-person account of his artistic triumph (and of his legal triumph over the Harper Lee estate who sued because the play mucked up the book’s characters), Sorkin explains how he’s brought the story up to date:

    But how do you give Atticus Finch a flaw? Does he go from a bad guy to a good guy? A bad lawyer to a good lawyer? An abusive father to a loving one? A racist man to one who believes in equality and justice? No, no, definitely not, and no. I tried all the doors and they were locked, until I found one that swung open with the lightest touch. I didn’t have to give Atticus a flaw because, to my mind, he already had one; it’s just that we’d always considered it a virtue. Atticus believes that you can’t really know someone unless you “climb into someone’s skin and walk around in it.” He believes that Bob Ewell should be understood as a man who lost his job. He believes Mrs. Dubose should be understood as a woman who recently stopped taking her medication and lives in physical pain. He believes in the fundamental goodness in everyone, even homicidal white supremacists. He believes … that there are fine people on both sides?

    That's why, when it goes South, there will be no mercy but a quick bullet. This new religion, grafted on to the extreme secular religion of the 20th century, has no concept of mercy or grace. Only the chosen and the damned. The damned will be delivered to the void as quickly as possible, and good riddance. My fear is that, when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st 2099, the crimes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot et al in the 20th century, will be all but forgotten/eclipsed by the far greater crimes of the 21st...assuming there is anyone around on that day.
  31. Condensed version of real-life conversation with professional-quality 200k-plus Diversicrat about Intersectionality…

    PROFOUND INTELLECTUAL BLACK GUY WEARING AUTHENTIC THICK-RIMMED PROBLEM GLASSES TO MAKE SURE I KNEW HE WAS SMART: (explains problematic Intersectional Theory at great length, making sure to misuse lots of big intellectual Wypipo words to make sure I knew he was smart).

    ME: So in other words, kind of like Venn diagrams? Like in 3rd grade? (LONG PAUSE). I mean, like, you DID do the Venn diagrams. Like in 3rd grade, right? Right?

    PROFOUND BLACK GUY: I’m reporting you for racism.

    Questions could be asked in the abstract. E.g., Who has more intersectionality?
    A. A transgender person
    B. A black person


    In other words, the real key to power or preference isn't so much intersectionality but focality.

    It's like 'all roads lead to Rome'. Rome isn't an equal among other points of power. It is The Power, so all lines must connect with Rome.

    Because blacks are holy, they don't have to make an effort to intersect with others. They have something precious just by being black. They can just sit still and wait for others to come to them for blessing. So, non-blacks must make an effort to intersect with the black focal point.

    Jews have tremendous focality. Republicans, Democrats, whites, blacks, homos, and all groups go out of their way to demonstrate how their own interests intersect with and are aligned with Jewish ones. It's like Texas firing a Palestinian-American teacher because its interests intersect with those of Israel(and certainly not with the much loathed Palestine).

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoVi_TOZj2k

    Also, since white goyim have lost their once estimable focality due to Jewish-controlled PC's defamation of the white race, they have no intrinsic value as a people. They must gain worth by intersecting with the Jews who got the juice, the power. Now, given that Jews have been at the forefront of white-vilification(and given that Jews feel about white Americans as they do about Palestinians), one might think white folks(especially conservatives) would side with Palestinians against Jews. But no. Why not?
    Because conservatives have an innate tendency to suck up to power, authority, and hierarchy. Since Jews got the most power, white conservatives tend to cuck to Jewish Power as their massuh. Also, conservatives tend to be more religious, and they tend to have this overly idealized vision of Israel as fulfillment of Prophecy. Also, conservatives tend to be more race-conscious, and despite the fact of Jewish antipathy, they still prefer to side with whom they perceive to be White Jews against Brown Arabs. Finally, some whites figure that the best way to beat Jewish power is to out-Jew the Jew. By showing that white Christians care for Israel even more than Liberal American Jews do, they are seeking co-ownership of Zionism. So, in the white Christian conservative imagination, the battle lines are between good white Christianfolk allied with faithful Orthodox Jews(and militant Zionist Jews) AND various heathens around degenerate Jews.

    Intersectionality, in and of itself, is really useless. Suppose American Indians, Guatemalan Americans, Burmese Americans, Iranian-Americans, and West Virginian hillbillies all arrived at some intersectionality. Would it matter? After all, a bunch of groups are intersected in common interest. But, it doesn't matter because none of them possess the focality of specialness or holiness. There isn't much to be gained by intersecting with Burmese-Americans or Eskimo Americans or El-Salvadorian-Americans, and etc. Most Americans, from top to bottom, doesn't care about those groups.

    Indeed, being intersected with one of the focal groups -- Jews, blacks, homos/trannies -- counts for more than being intersected with many others without focality. It's like owning a baseball card of a star player counts for more than 10,000 or even 100,000 cards of non-star players.

    And no matter how much intersectionality your group has attained, it all comes to naught IF it goes against the interests of one of the focal groups. Suppose Hindu Americans, Chinese Americans, Iranian Americans, Russian Americans, Venezuelan Americans, and Palestinian Americans all intersect on the issue of Israel-Palestinian conflict and support BDS. Now, that's a lot of intersectionality. So, will it be a boon for them?
    No, the fact is none of them have focality whereas Jews have tremendous focality. Since they(without focality) stand against Jews with super-focality, their intersectionality will be a plague upon them all. They will all be smeared with 'hate' whereas any group that loops around the Jewish focality will be showered with praise and prizes.

    Given how the power really works, intersectionality is one of the biggest shams. What really matters if the power of focality, and only a few groups have focal power. Jews have it, and because they have so much power and money, they get to decide who else gets to share the honor. And it's blacks and homos. Blacks are too profitable for Jewish moguls; furthermore, they are most effective in promoting white guilt and white (jungle) fever, both of which are effective in paralyzing white pride and confidence. And homos are such good and useful allies of Jews in promoting minority-supremacism, hedonism/narcissism, and fashioning a neo-religion to replace Christianity, a creed that Jews hate most.

    Maybe it’s because the Palestinians stillvact like goatf*****s, but the Jews usually don’t.

    I’ts not possible to establish intersectional status with just one data point, one has to be at a minimum [disadvantaged] AND [disadvantaged].

    As you can imagine black feminist weren’t doing as well as white feminist, so they cooked up this whole intersectional vegetable stew to get a leg up in the oppression derby; I’m a woman AND black! Black was later changed to Person of Color as the mulatto sisters that concocted the scheme had upset the black sisters, that claimed they should get a better pole position.
    The race to the bottom was on. The more intersections one has to interrogate the more right-of-way one is supposed to get. You get the checkered flag by being a total loser, created at birth or by society.

    Ability is there, my mistake

    But they largely ignore it in the case of white men. James Damore’s allegeded autism was no protection against the angry and exceedingly wealthy boss lady at YouTube. Eighty year old wheelchair bound vets are considered deserving of any violence dealt out by healthy 20 year old nams.

  38. Lin Manuel Miranda is a good test case for whether someone is pro-POC or just anti-white. I watched him on Good Morning America the other day, and he is easily white passing. He plays a normal bloke chimney sweep named Jack in the new Mary Poppins flick. He’s whiter looking than Oscar Isaac, who is famous for being ethnically fluid.

    So anyone wanting to “claim” Miranda as a POC is simply trying to make “white” as narrow a group as possible, so as for easier marginalization (or for purity reasons, a la Nazis).
