The Rise of the Lumpenintelligentsia
Search Text Case Sensitive  Exact Words  Include Comments

The rise of the lumpenintelligentsia is a major development of Internet Age journalism. Below from Salon is a self-portrait by somebody named Daisy Hernandez of a modern Salon-type scribe in all her self-absorption, racism, sexism, wounded amour propre, dimwittedness, and general cluelessness.

My theory is that the rise of lumpenintellectuals like Ms. Hernandez is tied to the increase in the ratio of advertising revenue relative to subscription revenue. For example, I pay a not insubstantial $3.75 per week to subscribe to the New York Times, but Slate, Salon, The Atlantic and other clickbait sites are advertiser-supported.

And what advertisers particularly like are:

- Women, because they spend so much more than men

- Who have been to college, because they have more money

- But who are not all that bright because (cf. The Bell Curve) there aren’t many people out at the right edge of the bell curve. The spending sweetspot is a little to the right of the median IQ.

Ms. Hernandez is from the Lumpenintelligentsia, Affirmative Action Beneficiary Division. Institutions hear that they need People of Color for the brilliant new perspectives they would bring, so they go out and hire homosexuals of color like Daisy Hernandez and Jayson Blair only to find out that their brilliant new perspectives are largely limited to:

- There should be more special privileges for people like me.

- I hate white men.

Latina, at the white, male New York Times: “Why are people thinking it’s OK to say racist sh-t in front of me?”

I learned the power of asking questions, and the power of an institution. Mostly I learned how to talk to white men

DAISY HERNÁNDEZ

Excerpted from “A Cup of Water Under My Bed: A Memoir”

I didn’t think white people got jobs the way Latinos did, just by talking to each other. But they do, and that’s how it happens for me. My first big job as a writer.

It’s the end of a graduate journalism class at New York University. The room fills with the familiar cacophony of a class ending: chairs scraping floors, students unzipping bags, murmurs about lunch and papers due. The professor, a thin, white woman, fastens her eyes on me.

“An editor at the New York Times is looking for a researcher for a book she’s doing on women’s history,” she says, matter-of-fact. “I thought of you. You write about feminism.”

I smile politely, uncomfortably. I’m twenty-five and writing for Ms. magazine, but I don’t consider myself someone who writes about feminism. That sounds like work other people do, people who are rich or famous or smart. I’m not a boba though. I have spent enough time around white women to know it’s better to not argue with them.

When I meet the editor, I like her immediately. … Months later, I e-mail Gail an opinion piece I wrote for an online wire service and she shoots back: “Oye, you should apply for this internship here in the editorial department.” …

Oye, and just like that I send my resume, which now includes research on indigenous maxi pads, to the editor at the Times hiring interns, even though I have no idea what an editorial is. That’s right. I am twenty-five, I am writing for a national magazine, I have been in journalism school, and I do not know what an editorial is.

I want to say that it’s never come up, that no one has ever talked to me about editorials. But they probably did, and I didn’t know what it was, and as I’ve been doing since I was in kindergarten, I probably acted like I knew what they were talking about and promptly forgot it.

… A friend has told me to look at the left side of the last page, at the short paragraphs stacked like shoe boxes in a closet.

The writing carries no byline. It’s monotonous, and I realize why I don’t know what an editorial is. I’ve never made it past the second line.

My feelings, though, are irrelevant. This is the New York Times. They have Maureen Dowd and stringers all over the world, including countries I have to find in the Britannica encyclopedia. If I get the internship, they won’t actually let me write.

But they do.

My first idea for an editorial is straightforward, a no-brainer really. I think the New York Times editorial board should urge President Bush to grant Colombians [like her relatives] political asylum in the United States. …

The other discovery I make is about white people.

One of the editors, a skinny man who I’ll call Mr. Flaco, listens to my initial idea for an editorial about granting Colombians asylum. “Why Colombians and not another group of people?” he asks, patronizingly. “If you open the door for them, do you open the door to every other country with internal conflicts?”

Mr. Flaco’s questions are rational, but they also feel odd somehow. When I board the bus for Jersey, I’m still thinking about what he asked. …

Do you open the door to every other country with internal conflicts?

It’s true that Colombians are not the only ones in need of asylum. It is every group from practically every country where the United States and Europe have at some point staked a claim on land. From the perspective of here, which is to say from the perspective of the United States, of this skinny editor, of people who have power, Colombia is not as devastated as Rwanda or even as El Salvador was in the eighties. Colombians are suffering, yes, but not as much.

ORDER IT NOW

There is a hierarchy of pain, and it is no longer confined to the pages of my college textbooks about political theory. It is here in Mr. Flaco. Pain in and of itself is not enough. It matters how many are dead, how many wounded, over what period of time, how much public outrage there is in the West. The pain has to be significant in relationship to those in power. …

Realizing this does not depress me. I consider it a discovery, because it feels that way, like I have entered the collective mind of white people with political power everywhere and managed to see one of the strange rituals by which they reproduce. This, I can only imagine, is how Darwin must have felt.

Newton, too.

Because it’s the beginning of summer, NPR has an obligatory story about the high number of girls who are going to tanning salons. I listen to this while lying in bed next to my girlfriend, who frequents these salons, and with my idea for getting Colombians political asylum stalled, I suggest writing on the evils of the fake tan.

Mr. Flaco loves it. White men can always be counted on to agree that girls do crazy things in the name of beauty and that they need to be chastised. Who better than to scold teenage girls than a young woman herself ? …

Mr. Flaco is curious to hear what I might want to write about a new report showing that boys are being left behind in education. Nervous, I stumble through my pitch about how it’s not all boys.

It is black boys and teenagers. “Racism,” I begin, “has, you know, shaped the expectations the kids have of themselves and that teachers have of them.”

“What’s going to be your recommendation?” he asks, a smile dancing at his lips. “Tell teachers to raise their self-esteem?”

I stare at the carpet. He continues. “What’s remarkable is that when you look across socioeconomic levels, black boys consistently do badly in school. It doesn’t matter if they’re living in Westchester or Harlem.”

The air around me grows thin, choking.

“By comparison,” he says, “Chinese kids do well in school even when they just got here yesterday.” He chuckles. “It’s like it’s genetic.”

I glance at him to make sure he is really here in the room with me, that he has actually said those words. I don’t expect to see the familiar face of the skinny man I have known for two months. Surely his words have distorted his forehead and his eyelids and his nostrils. But no such thing has happened. He is still the same man with the flaco face and a high-up job at an important institution.

There is much more amusingly/depressingly stupid stuff where that came from, including her self-absorbed opinions on the firing of her fellow intern/affirmative action hire Jayson Blair.

  2. When I think of lumpinintellgentsia, I think of people who go to low ranked law schools, or get PhDs and Masters degrees from terrible universities after which they won’t find jobs. Imagine going to school for around ten years after high school without learning any marketable skills or having any job prospects. They deserve pity more than anything, and society is partly to blame, for pumping financial aid into the system and telling people that anything that gets called “education” is worth pursuing.

    There isn't. Or at least he didn't say what she remembered him saying. He has been charged with cultivating her, cleaning her up a bit, spoon-feeding ideas and gently critiquing her. The MSM is anxious because they lack color, so they are doing their best to get her up to speed. And her work desperately needs buffing. She writes like a Journalism 101 student.

    Sadly, she doesn't realize how bad her writing is and therefore cannot see that he is trying to do her a favor. Yes, he is patronizing. But she doesn't realize that without his patronizing, chivvying, and not-too-pointed criticism she is not going anywhere.

    By biting the hand that feeds her she risks losing her job. Who--even a white SJW like Flaco-- wants to work with someone who bristles when you give them good advice? Who wants to work with someone who goes public after each editorial meeting/coaching session?

    I suspect that Daisy knows she is not long for her NYT gig and wants to leave wrapped in her personal banner of Mexican oppression: "Yes, I lost my job, but I lost it as a Brave Latina Fighting for La Raza Unida. I lost my job Fighting the Man."

    “(c.f., The Bell Curve)”

    No, you’re got “cf.” all wrong. It’s an abbreviation of the Latin “confer” (= “compare” in English), so there’s only one period (at the end) and no comma (because whatever comes after it is the direct object of the verb). Presumably, you’ve confused this with “e.g.,” or “i.e.,”.

    David Patterson was the Governor of New York (and one of the better ones, and the only Governor in the last 31 years who was not pathological). In New York, state colleges are called state colleges, as in "State University College at Brockport" or "Brooklyn College". In New Jersey, they elected some years ago to slap the appellation 'University' on any school which offered some sort of graduate degree and the private institutions largely followed suit. The undisputed universities in New Jersey are Princeton and Rutgers. Seton Hall makes it in under the envelope and Stevens Tech and the New Jersey Institute of Technology educate to the terminal degree in engineering. It appears to be policy in New Jersey to reconstitute Rowan University into a research institution with a biomedical emphasis, but that project is under construction.

    I've know one William Paterson graduate, who had a vocational master's from Long Island University as well. She was engaging and capable at her work as far as I could see. She's lived in northern New Jersey all her life. Schools like William Paterson have their niche.

    I had a Mexican friend in college. He wasn't particularly book-smart, an affirmative action admit to an elite school, but smart in a working-class kind of way. One day, out of nowhere, he says, "This girl raises her hand in calculus and says, 'I feel...', I f***ing hate that, every f***ing class, even math, somebody needs to start their thought with 'I feel'--nobody gives a damn how you feel, stop telling us, we don't want to know."
  14. I still don’t know why she quit. Why can’t she just be honest with herself (the way white people of modest talent and energy have to be) and admit the workload was too heavy? I guess the word “editorial” is another one that should be banned from the SATs.

  18. “El Gordo y la Flaca” is a TV show so it can’t be that bad, but maybe “Flaco” is some sort of crypto “doble sentido”.

    In the last 24 hours, there are around 30 tweets mentioning @daisyhernandez, all from her or her fans. If you really want to do something, engage those fans and show them how she’s wrong. Just be careful: her fans are probably the types who’d file bogus spam complaints. It might be a good idea to set up or buy disposable Twitter accounts for such cases.

    Overall, I’d suggest instead going after her enablers, like Forbes contributor @retheauditors. When she writes something at Forbes, show it wrong in comments and on Twitter.

    “Why are people thinking it’s OK to say racist sh-t in front of me?”

    HELP!!! TRIGGER ALERT!!!! Doesn’t the whitey know that he’s not supposed to say anything that might challenge the comfy PC bubble-mind of ‘minorities’?

    But who made Daisy think this way? Her ilk are incapable of thinking on their own. They were made to think this way.

    I tell ya.. Eskimos and Liberal Wasps created the hive mind of people like Daisy. They turned education from-kindergarten-to-college into a culture of correct thinking than free thinking and open discussion.

    If Daisy had been raised to think, Mr. Flaco’s suggestions might have stimulated her mind in new directions, pro or con.
    But her attitude is ‘how dare someone even bring up such subject in my presence?’

    But then… isn’t this how Eskimos act? Suppose you mention something about their power and privilege, about how their influence on foreign policy has had serious consequences in the Middle East and Ukraine.
    Will Eskimos engage you in an open debate and feel grateful for the opportunity to have a candid discussion?

    Or will they feel, ‘How dare this guy say all this anti-eskimite stuff in my presence?’
    Didn’t the GOP oblige the Eskimos in this manner?

    So, why is it surprising when other groups are emulating the Eskimos?

    What did William Kristol say? He said he would not want to even rub shoulders or discuss matters with the ‘Arabists’. THEY MUST ALL GO AND PURGED FROM AMERICAN CONSERVATISM. In other words, in the Neo-Eskimo-con controlled GOP, we better not say or mention anything that might upset the sensibilities of Eskimos. (And Jennifer Rubin made sure that Jason Richwine would never step inside the building of Heritage Foundation again.)

    And Eskimos control much of the media and etc. And their attitudes have rubbed off the likes of Daisy. And also on yellows who bitch about ‘micro-aggressions’.

    BTW, it could be Flaco is a Lib who was only saying mildly un-PC stuff to help out Daisy in her debating skills. It could be he was playing the role of devil’s advocate to hone Daisy’s skills as columnist, pundit, or polemicist.
    But it seems like Daisy, like Eskimos, doesn’t even want to be challenged in her world-view.
    She wants to be like Jennifer Rubin and William Kristol.
    Different political parties but same mentality. And both sides dominated by Eskimos.

    “Talk only if you agree with me and wanna flatter me, but shut up if you disagree with me or might undermine my world-view.”

    But then, American Conservatism is so craven and cowardly we have the likes of Ted Cruz insulting Christian Arabs facing genocide and the likes of Charles Murray, Rush Limbaugh, and Orrin Hatch who bend over to ‘gay marriage’.

    In a way, I find Daisy–just a programmed robot of Eskimo elites–less offensive than craven American Conservatives who’ve allowed Eskimos to push them around like Daisy spews her venom about a potential mentor who was helping her to think and expand her worldview(which is what an editor is supposed to do, especially with a young novice).

    Ha. But referring to Jews as "Eskimos" seems to have 2 advantages:

    1. It's funny. Mel Brooks couldn't have thought up a better term for Jewish conspiracy theories.

    2. It's more polite. For those who have the anti-Jewish ideology, by using a term that's only used in the context of anti-Eskimoism, it separates the criticism from the people, like your Jewish dentist, who's probably not actually on the Council of the Secret One World Eskimo Government.

    My impression is that the term started on amren.com as a way to get past the moderators, so there are whole discussion threads there talking about some mysterious group of apparently very busy Eskimos.

  32. Thanks for posting this. I guess I should know there are people like her out there, who are unashamedly ignorant and racist. No, that’s not quite it. What’s special here is that she isn’t like a high school dropout proudly displaying his ignorance of book learning— rather, she fails to notice that her college education was a complete waste and that her boss knows more than she does.

    My other thought, though, is why the editors at Salon let this get published. Surely they know that this doesn’t make their people look good. Next thing you know they’ll have some black man writing about how he loves to eat watermelon and fantasize about raping white women.

    I’m wondering if her atavism and scorn for white men and newspaper editorials (which she hasn’t read) make up some kind of anti-civilization triad.

  34. so they go out and hire homosexuals of color like Daisy Hernandez and Jayson Blair only to find out that their brilliant new perspectives are largely limited to:

    - There should be more special privileges for people like me

    - I hate white men

    It all boils down to that sick obsession due to the caste system in their home country.

    Colombians tend to be mestizo to castizo in autosomal results (miscegenation happened through Spanish male/Amerindian female, where a few Spanish males were in polygamous sexual relations with a lot of Native Amerindian women) and current Colombian culture incorporates a fusion between Native Amerindian and Spanish aspects (e.g. dance patterns, food/cuisine, linguistic grammar, economic systems, crime rates). Spanish is a national language in 20 sovereign states and one dependent entity, totaling over 350 million people in Central-South America.

    Most people from Central-South America (e.g. Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Argentina) have some Native Amerindian mixture. The correct term for her would be anything between Indio, Mestizo, Harnizo, or Castizo/White, since it distinguishes between degrees of Amerindian ancestry.

    The whole she’s a “Latina female” suffering prejudice from a white male is a false, dumb term and it’s a front to garner not only sympathy but affirmative action to get more free stuff. Actual Latin means Mediterranean, for example cultures/countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Romania. Is she from Southern Europe? I don’t think so.

  35. Maybe one should study the caste system in Colombia? Her anger at “white men” might be because she despised the rich white men back in Colombia, who tend to be not only super-rich, good-looking and cultured but privileged beyond compare and quite insulated (segregated in major cities).

    In another striking example, is it all that surprising that one of the richest man on the planet is a Mexican named Carlos Slim? He’s the top dog in Mexico due to their Central American caste system. Mexico is full of violent drug dealers, and their government is controlled by such corrupt politicians that the “normal politician” in Mexico tends to be as corrupted as the worst in Washington, D.C.

    Bonus points to those who pointed out that women spend much more than men, because that’s essentially why big businesses/corporations are crazy about “supporting women”. Women as a sex spend more money in shopping and consumerism, so a lot of cash ends up elsewhere (in other people’s pockets).

    TALES OF THE LUMPENINTELLIGENSIA — coming this fall on CBS – starring John Cusack in his first prime time role as JustAnotherGuyWitha1911!

    EXT. -1911 WALKING IN THE RAIN. LEFT HAND GRASPING A BOTTLE OF DUBRA. TRENCH COAT BLOWING IN THE WIND. BOOM BOX NOWHERE TO BE SEEN.

    1911

    ‘graduated T3 law school – paid for it out of my own pocket while working full time as a supervisor at an insurance company in my mid 30′s. I passed the bar the first time around – skipped BarBri – just bought some guy’s notes (who later went on to be a supreme court clerk on the state level — not NY). I also had some craptastic DOS based software program – MicroMash. Anyway – took a week off, studied, and passed it – no problem. Moreover, I am pretty sure I was drunk at least 50% of the time.

    Now – passing the bar probably puts me IQ at 120ish — the docs usually clock in a bit higher. I did do some internet test at one point (which was fairly rigorous and took 3 hours) that scored me at 138, but, at the end of the day, I’m pretty sure the whole thing was scam to sell me more IQ tests to tell me how smart I am, so let’s stick with the 120′s.

    The drummer in my band, let’s call him Dave, (white guy – just hit 50) has an eidetic memory, could probably put VoxDay to shame in the Roman History department – and teaches history at the local community college, but since that does not pay much he works as a laborer during the summer.

    America V 1.0 probably would have a place for a guy like me (and my drummer) reasonably intelligent, likable (no, really, I am), articulate, fairly quick on my feet (successfully argued a number of dispositive motions), able to apply abstract concepts to concrete fact patterns, but I started in small law and it only got smaller.

    Now – after all the violence an double talk – I am a middle age white guy with an Uber phone who occasionally posts iSteve – the Unz years. Maybe one day the liver kicks out and me, in the time I got left, well, I’ll throw a party they’ll never forget, but, in the interim – I do my best to survive in a world where I just another fungible and superannuated white guy and not, as some posit, a member of the lumpenintelligensia – T3 degree aside.

    As a guy I know likes ta say – Who? Whom?

    My impression is that the term started on amren.com as a way to get past the moderators, so there are whole discussion threads there talking about some mysterious group of apparently very busy Eskimos.

    Ramzer is wrong.

    It’s not true that America was destined to become ‘diverse’ because the DNA of America’s founding was essentially French-Revolution-lite.

    If nations are fated to eventually and radically conform to the principles of their ideological founding, then China shouldn’t be turning capitalist. After all, the People’s Republic of China was founded by Mao to be communist and universalist. But China has been turning more capitalist and nationalist. How could that be?

    Also, Mexican constitution is almost identical to the American constitution, and the Mexican republic was founded on almost identical principles, and yet, Mexicans have very stringent laws about immigration, and they are still very nationalistic like Zionists.

    Modern Turkey was founded as a secular republic that banned many religious expressions and practices, but Turkey has been turning more Islamic lately.

    Now, consider European nations with deep roots and traditions. They were not founded as ‘revolutionary’ countries devoted to ‘diversity’. And German citizenship until relatively recently was defined by blood.
    But European nations are now committed to the same madness that US is. Sweden, Germany, Holland, Italy, Greece, UK, Ireland, and Spain are filling up with massive immigration.

    As for Canada and Australia, they were not founded by revolutionaries with radical ideas. They remained loyal to motherland UK for a long time and gained independence cordially. Yet they too are committed to massive immigration and diversity.

    So, what’s going on?

    The liberal ideology won over the conservative one, and the decisive controllers of western liberalism are Eskimos who’ve made a cult of ‘white guilt’ that can only be atoned by white racial suicide. THAT is the decisive factor.

    That's why the White female jihad against Wally and Dilbert. Their crime is lack of sexiness. As is Mr. Flacos. Even a lesbian responds to male sexiness and dominance. Its hard wired.

    The fall of the West is organic. Higher female status makes men their equals or inferiors and thus unsexy. Stir in the pill, condoms, anon urban living, female consumerism.

    "OK she’s a lesbian, that explains some of it…"

    Are you sure she's a lesbian? She's way too pretty to fit the mold. There are very, very few pretty lesbians, because to be pretty in the conventional sense you need high levels of estrogen, and that's not exactly what lesbians are known for. Most of the pretty ones are only "lesbians" for a time, while some high-powered lesbo (like Ellen) is their sugar momma.

    I know she mentions a girlfriend, but perhaps it's an actual girl friend, not her "husband". She also mentions a boyfriend.

    But if she is, perhaps she willed herself into lesbianism out of spite for men, and especially her father, who knows...

    Also, re: her ancestry, she seems to be a Pardo - a mix of white, black, and Amerindian, but with a lot white. Or a lot of skin whitening, which would ironically explain her hatred for whites - she wants to like them, but it takes a lot of effort, both mental and cosmetic. Her white male bosses at NYT would keep asking her hard question which her little mind couldn't make any sense of - such as, why are blacks doing poorly academically everywhere, but Chinese are doing great, even if they are fresh off the boat.
  58. I frequent racial anthropology sites where people classify phenotypes, so I am usually pretty good at being able to tell Caucasians apart from light skin Mestizos/light skin Mulatos/ light skin Triracials.

    People on racial anthropology sites concentrate more on facial features than skin color. We pay close attention to stuff like cheekbones, lip size, eye shape, and nose shape.

    For example I can tell by Jennifer Lopez’s facial features that she is not pure Caucasian. I can see Taino influences in her cheekbones and eye shape.

    Right, Jennifer Lopez's big break in the movies was playing Selena, the Mexican-American singer. Lopez looks more mestizo than mulatto, which is unusual for a Puerto Rican (perhaps blacks genes are more dominant for looks?). But subsequent genome studies found a not insignificant percent of Amerindian genes in modern Puerto Ricans, which undermined the historians' convention that Native Americans were completely exterminated in Puerto Rico.

Just be careful: her fans are probably the types who'd file bogus spam complaints. It might be a good idea to set up or buy disposable Twitter accounts for such cases.

    Overall, I'd suggest instead going after her enablers, like Forbes contributor @retheauditors. When she writes something at Forbes, show it wrong in comments and on Twitter.

    “Flaco” is Thin man or the Skinny One. It is not offensive nor hostile. Miss Hernandez must have a problem with her weight, as most Latinas. Her writing is not bad for a start and for her social context, and she may mature. She has good teeth too.

    Thankfully she found someone that could pay her good money to decorate the fishwrap and birdcage liners that people need because paper towels are too expensive, because being gay she might not be smart enough to make cheap chalupas at Yo Quiera Taco Bell, which in Spanish means refried beans we found in the garbage at Wal-Mart.
    You should all try to re-educate yourselves by reading the books of the famed Sociologist Dr. Poindexter, where he explains that Dr. Frankenhooker was just misunderstood and was only trying to create a Golem to help free his people from the oppression of having to be doctors in Germany. He wrote an entire series of them which are now available for free on porn sites in languages like Ebonics, Ebola and Gibberish.

    She’s only twenty-something and when you factor in her I.Q. she’s probably only a small child that hasn’t grown up yet. When she does, she’ll probably go on to fulfill her dreams of being a fireman in her home country where she will ride her magic unicorn and put down riots with her firehose. She might even visit the land of Shangri-La in the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City to find her long lost mother who gave her up for adoption to apes living in the jungle when she became a hooker.
    Its inspiring people like her that turn angry disaffected minorities into lifelong Democratic voters who fight the oppression of receiving everything for free from the government in the form of welfare payments and unearned opportunities.

    I frequent racial anthropology sites where people classify phenotypes, so I am usually pretty good at being able to tell Caucasians apart from light skin Mestizos/light skin Mulatos/ light skin Triracials.

    People on racial anthropology sites concentrate more on facial features than skin color. We pay close attention to stuff like cheekbones, lip size, eye shape, and nose shape.

    For example I can tell by Jennifer Lopez's facial features that she is not pure Caucasian. I can see Taino influences in her cheekbones and eye shape.

    Right, Jennifer Lopez’s big break in the movies was playing Selena, the Mexican-American singer. Lopez looks more mestizo than mulatto, which is unusual for a Puerto Rican (perhaps blacks genes are more dominant for looks?). But subsequent genome studies found a not insignificant percent of Amerindian genes in modern Puerto Ricans, which undermined the historians’ convention that Native Americans were completely exterminated in Puerto Rico.

    There isn’t. Or at least he didn’t say what she remembered him saying. He has been charged with cultivating her, cleaning her up a bit, spoon-feeding ideas and gently critiquing her. The MSM is anxious because they lack color, so they are doing their best to get her up to speed. And her work desperately needs buffing. She writes like a Journalism 101 student.

    Sadly, she doesn’t realize how bad her writing is and therefore cannot see that he is trying to do her a favor. Yes, he is patronizing. But she doesn’t realize that without his patronizing, chivvying, and not-too-pointed criticism she is not going anywhere.

    By biting the hand that feeds her she risks losing her job. Who–even a white SJW like Flaco– wants to work with someone who bristles when you give them good advice? Who wants to work with someone who goes public after each editorial meeting/coaching session?

    I suspect that Daisy knows she is not long for her NYT gig and wants to leave wrapped in her personal banner of Mexican oppression: “Yes, I lost my job, but I lost it as a Brave Latina Fighting for La Raza Unida. I lost my job Fighting the Man.”

    OK she's a lesbian, that explains some of it...

    I was going to suggest that she and that Dominican Diaz guy Steve wrote about a month or two ago would make a 'lovely' couple, but I guess that's not going to happen.

    They seem to have a similar worldview.

    “OK she’s a lesbian, that explains some of it…”

    Are you sure she’s a lesbian? She’s way too pretty to fit the mold. There are very, very few pretty lesbians, because to be pretty in the conventional sense you need high levels of estrogen, and that’s not exactly what lesbians are known for. Most of the pretty ones are only “lesbians” for a time, while some high-powered lesbo (like Ellen) is their sugar momma.

    I know she mentions a girlfriend, but perhaps it’s an actual girl friend, not her “husband”. She also mentions a boyfriend.

    But if she is, perhaps she willed herself into lesbianism out of spite for men, and especially her father, who knows…

    Also, re: her ancestry, she seems to be a Pardo – a mix of white, black, and Amerindian, but with a lot white. Or a lot of skin whitening, which would ironically explain her hatred for whites – she wants to like them, but it takes a lot of effort, both mental and cosmetic. Her white male bosses at NYT would keep asking her hard question which her little mind couldn’t make any sense of – such as, why are blacks doing poorly academically everywhere, but Chinese are doing great, even if they are fresh off the boat.

    "Eskimos" applies only to bad Jews. "Jews" applies to all Jews, even the great Jews like Feynman.

    Use of "Eskimos" thus solves an important linguistic problem.

This is particularly important for those in leadership or public positions where everyone has to “look before they leap” lest they end up having a thought or opinion that runs counter to the Cathedral. Rather than thinking critically which can be dangerous, they have already done that for us so there is no need to know any more on a particular topic. It is the ultimate sign of approval and reference point so as long as the NYT wrote it, it is ok to discuss semi-openly. Perhaps their new motto should be, “All the news that is fit to think.”

    flaco=skinny= effeminate, weak in Latino culture

    Funnily enough, she's employing 'machismo' here to diminish her 'oppressor'. I find, despite the love-yourself-body- positive feminism of many of her ilk, criticizing old white men/bosses for their lack of physicality is an especially popular way of expressing rage against them. When black/latina women, or any POC, are unhealthy in some way, it's because of discrimination or stress caused by racism. When it's old white men, it's proof of their moral degeneracy. Someone else on this thread mentioned she'd marry white guy at the drop of a hat- definitely true. It's quite ugly, this mix of seething hostility, envy, and desire.

    That said, another commentator noticed that if Mr. Flaco did mention genetics in regard Black/Chinese academic ability, he was most certainly f**king with her. Would he have had the guts to advocate such an opinion for an op-ed? Steve said there're some very smart people at the NYT. I agree. But, which is worse: knowing the truth and happily throwing people (Wade) under the bus for expressing it, or being a true believer and doing so? No fan of this missy, but her boss seems pretty rotten as well.

    As for her sexuality, in the article she mentions she left home to live with a boyfriend at 19, which, surprisingly, didn't work out. So, her lesbianism seems more fashion than inborn urge. WWG and all that; being Latina or black just isn't enough these days, and it's easier for women to feign bisexuality.

  100. @Cookies – Black female looks tend to be more dominant until Quadroon/Octoroon level (around Quintroon, which is 93.75% white+6.25% black ancestry, is when one starts “passing” into the European family tree and look like a white woman). Concerning black looks, and to see if black blood/genetics is weak, check for the hair texture. Start thinking like a black woman who wears a wig. The strongest gene for African genome would be the “short nappy hair” type. For example, U.S. Black American women shop for all sorts of weaves, wigs and get chemical treatments such as perms to hide away (camouflage) the hair. Biracials tend to have curly hair (sometimes wavy) and the straighter the hair, the less black one is.

    Ramzer is wrong.

    It's not true that America was destined to become 'diverse' because the DNA of America's founding was essentially French-Revolution-lite.

    If nations are fated to eventually and radically conform to the principles of their ideological founding, then China shouldn't be turning capitalist. After all, the People's Republic of China was founded by Mao to be communist and universalist. But China has been turning more capitalist and nationalist. How could that be?

    Also, Mexican constitution is almost identical to the American constitution, and the Mexican republic was founded on almost identical principles, and yet, Mexicans have very stringent laws about immigration, and they are still very nationalistic like Zionists.

    Modern Turkey was founded as a secular republic that banned many religious expressions and practices, but Turkey has been turning more Islamic lately.

    Now, consider European nations with deep roots and traditions. They were not founded as 'revolutionary' countries devoted to 'diversity'. And German citizenship until relatively recently was defined by blood.
    But European nations are now committed to the same madness that US is. Sweden, Germany, Holland, Italy, Greece, UK, Ireland, and Spain are filling up with massive immigration.

    As for Canada and Australia, they were not founded by revolutionaries with radical ideas. They remained loyal to motherland UK for a long time and gained independence cordially. Yet they too are committed to massive immigration and diversity.

    So, what's going on?

    The liberal ideology won over the conservative one, and the decisive controllers of western liberalism are Eskimos who've made a cult of 'white guilt' that can only be atoned by white racial suicide. THAT is the decisive factor.

    One of the dumber statements I’ve seen considering the original post. The hate hate hate for White guys by Ms Hernandez is shared by White women. Who due to higher spending rule the cultural and comercial marketplace and are highly religious. Just pc post Chrstian not trad Christianity.

    That’s why the White female jihad against Wally and Dilbert. Their crime is lack of sexiness. As is Mr. Flacos. Even a lesbian responds to male sexiness and dominance. Its hard wired.

    The fall of the West is organic. Higher female status makes men their equals or inferiors and thus unsexy. Stir in the pill, condoms, anon urban living, female consumerism.

    Birds and fish flock and school without conspirators. The problem with you voodoo thinking is that it doesnot address the problem. It prescribes leeches and bleeding for a anemic patient.

    How could I escape it, dear boy? It’s tied with “my grandfather couldn’t get into the country club” for most tiresome Jewish victimization trope. Of course, as I like to remind my Jewish friends, Harvard was still 15% Jewish in the ’30s, which hardly makes them look like victims.And Skull and Bones tapped its first Jewish member (Albert Hessberg II) in 1938. So much for anti-Semitism, eh?

    This chick made me think of that Sanchez fellow down in Miami. Believe me as dumb as our girl may be she knows better than to say a word about the Eskimoes.

    Again, what purpose does the whole Eskimo thing serve here? Just curious.

    Reading Eskimo five times in the same post just makes you want the writer to say what he means.

    It's no worse than "Scots-Irish".

    It’s no worse than “Scots-Irish”.

    It’s actually a bit better than Scots-Irish. The Scots-Irish, after all, have played a fairly prominent role in American history, and there have been occasions when it was not entirely clear how one was supposed to interpret a post (“Wait, does he mean the actual Scots-Irish here or is he using it as a code?”).

    On the other hand, Jew/Jewish is best of all, so why not use that?

    Ramzer is wrong.

    It's not true that America was destined to become 'diverse' because the DNA of America's founding was essentially French-Revolution-lite.

    If nations are fated to eventually and radically conform to the principles of their ideological founding, then China shouldn't be turning capitalist. After all, the People's Republic of China was founded by Mao to be communist and universalist. But China has been turning more capitalist and nationalist. How could that be?

    Also, Mexican constitution is almost identical to the American constitution, and the Mexican republic was founded on almost identical principles, and yet, Mexicans have very stringent laws about immigration, and they are still very nationalistic like Zionists.

    Modern Turkey was founded as a secular republic that banned many religious expressions and practices, but Turkey has been turning more Islamic lately.

    Now, consider European nations with deep roots and traditions. They were not founded as 'revolutionary' countries devoted to 'diversity'. And German citizenship until relatively recently was defined by blood.
    But European nations are now committed to the same madness that US is. Sweden, Germany, Holland, Italy, Greece, UK, Ireland, and Spain are filling up with massive immigration.

    As for Canada and Australia, they were not founded by revolutionaries with radical ideas. They remained loyal to motherland UK for a long time and gained independence cordially. Yet they too are committed to massive immigration and diversity.

    So, what's going on?

    The liberal ideology won over the conservative one, and the decisive controllers of western liberalism are Eskimos who've made a cult of 'white guilt' that can only be atoned by white racial suicide. THAT is the decisive factor.

    The situation is temporary.

    Are you sure she's a lesbian? She's way too pretty to fit the mold. There are very, very few pretty lesbians, because to be pretty in the conventional sense you need high levels of estrogen, and that's not exactly what lesbians are known for. Most of the pretty ones are only "lesbians" for a time, while some high-powered lesbo (like Ellen) is their sugar momma.

    I know she mentions a girlfriend, but perhaps it's an actual girl friend, not her "husband". She also mentions a boyfriend.

    But if she is, perhaps she willed herself into lesbianism out of spite for men, and especially her father, who knows...

    Also, re: her ancestry, she seems to be a Pardo - a mix of white, black, and Amerindian, but with a lot white. Or a lot of skin whitening, which would ironically explain her hatred for whites - she wants to like them, but it takes a lot of effort, both mental and cosmetic. Her white male bosses at NYT would keep asking her hard question which her little mind couldn't make any sense of - such as, why are blacks doing poorly academically everywhere, but Chinese are doing great, even if they are fresh off the boat.

    Right, pretty lesbians are quite rare, but it does happen. I met one in my mongering days. I think she told me she was Hawaiian/Portuguese. Just darling. $60.

  116. Hey, I know – how about instead of Eskimos — we use the term “Paul Walker(s)”. Hear me out, boys.

    First – it will bring in a lot of hits from hot, non-lesbian, latinas looking for pics of the man who was, it is fair to say, this generations Steve McQueen. We can exchange e-mails with them!

    Second, what Jew is going to complain about being compared the incomparably manly man Paul Walker? Maybe a Paul Walker who thinks he can drive better than Paul Walker, perhaps? But, really, how many Paul Walkers are race car drivers? Why is that, you think? Is it related to spacial temporal ability? Maybe Paul Walkers hate the people who go to NASCAR races?

    Are Paul Walkers racisss against white people????

    The fact that there are so few Paul Walkers in NASCAR really speaks to how far we have to go until Paul Walkers are accepted at all levels of our society – not just the top! The NYT should get its top hispanic reporter on this, stat!

    Listen – it only took Criminal Minds 10 years to make “unSub” happen. We can do this – together.

    Aww, shucks, fellas – who/whom am I kidding? Steve Sailer hates, hate, hates, hates, Paul Walker, so it ain’t ever going to fly. And by that, I mean, the Paul Walker, not, you know, the Paul Walkers.

    Flaco just means skinny.
    In Spanish it is much more common than in English to call people by names that are just physical characteristics. You may call someone as flaco meaning nothing at all except that being skinny is what stood out to you about that person.

    Theres no real doble sentido going on there, shes just saying he was a skinny guy.

    flaco=skinny= effeminate, weak in Latino culture

    Funnily enough, she’s employing ‘machismo’ here to diminish her ‘oppressor’. I find, despite the love-yourself-body- positive feminism of many of her ilk, criticizing old white men/bosses for their lack of physicality is an especially popular way of expressing rage against them. When black/latina women, or any POC, are unhealthy in some way, it’s because of discrimination or stress caused by racism. When it’s old white men, it’s proof of their moral degeneracy. Someone else on this thread mentioned she’d marry white guy at the drop of a hat- definitely true. It’s quite ugly, this mix of seething hostility, envy, and desire.

    That said, another commentator noticed that if Mr. Flaco did mention genetics in regard Black/Chinese academic ability, he was most certainly f**king with her. Would he have had the guts to advocate such an opinion for an op-ed? Steve said there’re some very smart people at the NYT. I agree. But, which is worse: knowing the truth and happily throwing people (Wade) under the bus for expressing it, or being a true believer and doing so? No fan of this missy, but her boss seems pretty rotten as well.

    As for her sexuality, in the article she mentions she left home to live with a boyfriend at 19, which, surprisingly, didn’t work out. So, her lesbianism seems more fashion than inborn urge. WWG and all that; being Latina or black just isn’t enough these days, and it’s easier for women to feign bisexuality.

    One thing to keep in mind, a thing which seems to have slipped past many posters in these comments, is that she was at the NYT in the 2002-03 period. The paper's tone has changed in some very significant ways since then. I suspect the NYT of the early 2000's was probably more similar, in terms of ideology and in culture, to its state in the late-90s when it openly disapproved of mass immigration than it is to the present incarnation.
  120. A hundred years ago, or even fifty, this woman’s job would have been done by a white man. I imagine that anyone reading this has many ideas why the change has been made. Why some of the most powerful people in America humbling themselves to try to integrate into their ranks this woman of mediocre intelligence, emotionally unhealthy and saturated in resentment, simplemindedly tribalistic, unreflective, undereducated, and unambitious?

    My opinion – it’s like Steve and Moldbug have said many times – in a healthy society, the people running the show unite with a large and vital middle class in condemning and controlling the misbehavior of the lower classes. In the modern West, however, the elites are using the lowest classes as shock troops in an attempt to break the the political and economic power, the pride, and the spirit of the middle class.

    So, readers and commenters, have some sympathy.  This is not a deeply flawed, conceited, myopic, agonizingly eye-clawingly self-destructive mess of a piece.  It’s actually a tragically, brutally honest expression of a broken soul who has mended just enough to walk around and talk and seem to function on the surface, but not enough to really function at all.

    I do think "white people are evil" is the message intended by the author and by Salon.
    My point is that some readers, after recognizing the rampant racism will notice that it's actually not her racism that is most striking.
    Instead, it is the pathological combination of her resentment, ignorance, magical thinking, childish naiveté, passivity, incompetence, dissociation, and narcissism, among other things, that makes the account so unusual.

    Thus, I would say the unconscious theme is "Psychologically damaged woman experiences difficulty in her professional life, even when given the choicest opportunities, and persistently externalizes responsibility." Unconscious because neither Salon nor the author are aware of it.
    Her father is sufficient to explain the origin of her psychological damage. The child of an abusive alcoholic will not be able to consciously blame that parent. Instead, the child may redirect the rage at a target that is no immediate threat. Whites fit the bill for her, and this is reinforced throughout her PC education with the twisted logic that it is the white power structure that has "kept her father down" and "forced" him to be that way.

    It's mildly amusing the first time. However, it gets old very fast. Reading Eskimo five times in the same post just makes you want the writer to say what he means.

    2. It’s more polite. For those who have the anti-Jewish ideology, by using a term that’s only used in the context of anti-Eskimoism, it separates the criticism from the people, like your Jewish dentist, who’s probably not actually on the Council of the Secret One World Eskimo Government.
     
    A matter of opinion; I dislike coy games and prefer to have everything out in the open.

    My impression is that the term started on amren.com as a way to get past the moderators, so there are whole discussion threads there talking about some mysterious group of apparently very busy Eskimos.
     
    Steve is not amren.com. When has Steve every censored someone because he used words like "Jew" and "Jewish"?

    “Eskimos” applies only to bad Jews. “Jews” applies to all Jews, even the great Jews like Feynman.

    Use of “Eskimos” thus solves an important linguistic problem.

    Commenters like Svigor and Pizza speak in ways that sound to others like they’re condemning all Jews. But they’re only intending to refer to bad Jews. They actually just want Jews to be on Sailer’s side.

    The following about lying in bed next to her girlfriend seems to confirm her current proclivity. Chalk up another SJW point.

    “Because it’s the beginning of summer, NPR has an obligatory story about the high number of girls who are going to tanning salons. I listen to this while lying in bed next to my girlfriend, who frequents these salons, and with my idea for getting Colombians political asylum stalled, I suggest writing on the evils of the fake tan.”

    Esoteric message: "It’s actually a tragically, brutally honest expression of a broken soul who has mended just enough to walk around and talk and seem to function on the surface, but not enough to really function at all."

    Exoteric message: White men bad!

    I do think “white people are evil” is the message intended by the author and by Salon.
    My point is that some readers, after recognizing the rampant racism will notice that it’s actually not her racism that is most striking.
    Instead, it is the pathological combination of her resentment, ignorance, magical thinking, childish naiveté, passivity, incompetence, dissociation, and narcissism, among other things, that makes the account so unusual.

    Thus, I would say the unconscious theme is “Psychologically damaged woman experiences difficulty in her professional life, even when given the choicest opportunities, and persistently externalizes responsibility.” Unconscious because neither Salon nor the author are aware of it.
    Her father is sufficient to explain the origin of her psychological damage. The child of an abusive alcoholic will not be able to consciously blame that parent. Instead, the child may redirect the rage at a target that is no immediate threat. Whites fit the bill for her, and this is reinforced throughout her PC education with the twisted logic that it is the white power structure that has “kept her father down” and “forced” him to be that way.

  146. Latina, at the white, male New York Times: “Why are people thinking it’s OK to say racist sh-t in front of me?”

    Love the title. NYT is shooting for the stars these days.

    I probably acted like I knew what they were talking about and promptly forgot it.

    Now there’s a formula for success.

    Mr. Flaco loves it. White men can always be counted on to agree that girls do crazy things in the name of beauty and that they need to be chastised. Who better than to scold teenage girls than a young woman herself ?

    Or maybe white men can always agree not to be too demanding of their AA hires?

    It is black boys and teenagers. “Racism,” I begin, “has, you know, shaped the expectations the kids have of themselves and that teachers have of them.”

    You know, I’m interested to know how this racism is transmitted to the kids. Does it come from the TV? Nope, the TV’s telling them they’re rocket scientists and holy men. Does it come from the school system? Nope, the school system’s flooding them with pride as the real builders of America. Does it come from the gov’t? No, the gov’t is busily bending over backwards to pamper them, flatter them, and throw money at them. Does it come from the corporations? No, corporate America is waiting with buckets of cash to pay AA candidates with a modicum of decorum and competence.

    Maybe evil, racist, white private citizens are texting them all the racism.

    There is much more amusingly/depressingly stupid stuff where that came from

    Yeah, but do I want to read it?

    “What’s remarkable is that when you look across socioeconomic levels, black boys consistently do badly in school. It doesn’t matter if they’re living in Westchester or Harlem.”

    The air around me grows thin, choking.

    Sounds like a serious case of the vapors!

    “By comparison,” he says, “Chinese kids do well in school even when they just got here yesterday.” He chuckles. “It’s like it’s genetic.”

    This guy worked or works at the NYT? Isn’t she supposed to be naming this Jewish evil white heathen and leading the cry to take up the torches and the pitchforks? Or is Nazism okay when NYT editors do it? My first instinct is to suggest she’s lying, that she made this story up. It certainly sounds like the last thing a white male NYT editor would say to a latina AA hire. But that doesn’t matter now. She’s made the accusation, and she should be required to follow through and give up the name so the good people can get YT.

    Perhaps a better question is, will her anecdote start an investigation, as it should? Or, can the liberal readership read between the lines, guess she’s lying, and let that sleeping dog lie? Who knows? It’s not like libs actually have any principles.

  148. I don’t buy that there is someone like Mr. Flaco working in the NYT.

    Neither do I, but it was in the Bush era, so maybe her story will be that he’s fired or dead now. Or both. But it doesn’t matter if the story is true or not. The question now is, why is she protecting this racist? Why are the liberals letting her get away with protecting this racist?

    If you can read between the lines, you’ll notice there are smart guys at the NYT.

    So, why are they smart enough to obfuscate in print for the masses, but so stupid they say blatantly politically-incorrect hatespeech to sub-mediocre AA hires?

    Is this thinking or is it programming? It sounds like a computer blips and blaps.

    Her first move was to agitate for her ethnic interests in American immigration policy. You tell me.

    Also notice the lack of gratitude whereby she spits upon the very people attempting to make her employable and move her up.

    In the psycho world of liberalism, gratitude to YT would signify ingratitude to liberalism. Or something.

    BTW, it could be Flaco is a Lib who was only saying mildly un-PC stuff to help out Daisy in her debating skills. It could be he was playing the role of devil’s advocate to hone Daisy’s skills as columnist, pundit, or polemicist.

    Right, it sounded like something a Devil’s advocate might’ve said in an episode of The Wire with his tongue in his cheek; “this is what they’ll say (the bastards)”…

    You’re really running that one into the ground.

    Just curious, why? Do you really think that it’s clever? Or do you think that Steve won’t let you say “Jew?”

    “Jew” is a loaded word. Jews made it so. Using euphemisms is a way to get ’round the programming. It’s how guerrilla culture wars are waged. Like swinging around the Maginot Line. “Eskimo” triggers no knees.

    The white privilege on display here is making me physically ill.

    Ted has the vapors too! I don’t care what everybody says about you Ted, you’re okay in my book.

    War Nerd is back.

    Found that via slavyangrad.org, did you? That pando site looks like wannabe-eXile coporate bullshit to me. Of course, the eXile was bullshit, fake truth to power, too.

    So you can deploy the anti-anti-Semitic opprobrium? You know what he means.

    To his credit, he’s only done this once. I don’t mind when Steve blocks a post. But
    he shouldn’t be editing post.

    I’ve always preferred that a censor pare out part of a post than have the whole comment be denied because of one passage.

    [Eskimo is] no worse than “Scots-Irish”.

    It’s much better. The real Scots-Irish are actually in play in modern society and are quite relevant.

    None of the shit you’re always posting makes any sense. Black and brown men are below white men on the status metrics you refer to. Japan is the massive counter-example, and your handwaving “yellow wymmin more tolerant of nerdiness” makes no sense given their behavior in western sexual markets.

    Hey, Stuart, did you know that Eskimos have over 1000 words for money!

    Haha, funny. In seriousness, I’ve always been amazed by how many words they have for penis.

    But sites like AmRen and the B.U.G.S. have taken a stand with no Jew talk, to keep it from going that way.

    If AmRen has “taken a stand” for censorship of that type, it’s new. I’ve usually had few problems getting my views across there. Though it depends heavily on the moderator on duty (there appear to be several, and one of them is always a strict anti-anti-semite).

    “Reporting produces in me a condition akin to stage fright. My body freezes, my mind stares at a blank white wall…. I have to remind myself of what to do: make calls, ask questions, quote, summarize, send to editor.”

    I jump for joy that Affirmative Action has brought such a hungry, natural-born, in-her-bones journalist to the forefront.

    As I learned as an undergrad, a good toasting does wonders.

    A lil’ olive oil in a covered pan on low.

    Syon knows why “Eskimo” is such a useful term, and it infuriates him. And not because the term is esoteric–it’s because it allows conversations to take place that he would prefer not occur.

    He’s reminding me a bit of that Jew in Saving Private Ryan, when he waves his dog tags at the German prisoners. Heathen-baiting, or somesuch: “I’m a Jew, don’t you want to say something bad about the Joooooooooooooooz?” He’s kind of illustrating why “Eskimo” works.

    Commenters like Svigor and Pizza speak in ways that sound to others like they’re condemning all Jews. But they’re only intending to refer to bad Jews. They actually just want Jews to be on Sailer’s side.

    Jews get more protections than others do. Nobody feels they have to qualify their statements endlessly when criticizing whites, or heathens (“gentiles”), or Christians, or southerners, or Conservatives, or race realists, or…you get the point. Everybody knows how generalizations work when those are the subjects. But suddenly the rules change when Jews are the subject. Fuck that, I’d rather be misinterpreted.

    ''I have been in journalism school, and I do not know what an editorial is.''

    Is it possible to read a newspaper and not know what an editorial is? I'm almost impressed by the near heroic levels of stupidity and ignorance that demonstrates. I wonder if she realises quite how appallingly incompetent and worthless she has made herself look? Probably not, after all, all problems and limitations are the fault of evil White people.

    You really have to attend J-school to ken the relentless ignorance. I was a TA for a JO101 course, and the prof handed back the first set of papers I graded with the admonition “You can’t give them these grades!” when I deducted points for minor issues like the disagreement between nouns and verbs. Too, we’re talking mostly about the print students, as the broadcast majors taking print electives were a whole standard deviation worse.

    I formulated a theory at the time: if you’re an East Coast elite Eskimo and you’re kids a bright, you send them to Harvard, Yale or Princeton to be doctors, lawyers or Wall Street execs; if they’re not so smart, you send them to journalism school.

    @Cookies - Black female looks tend to be more dominant until Quadroon/Octoroon level (around Quintroon, which is 93.75% white+6.25% black ancestry, is when one starts "passing" into the European family tree and look like a white woman). Concerning black looks, and to see if black blood/genetics is weak, check for the hair texture. Start thinking like a black woman who wears a wig. The strongest gene for African genome would be the "short nappy hair" type. For example, U.S. Black American women shop for all sorts of weaves, wigs and get chemical treatments such as perms to hide away (camouflage) the hair. Biracials tend to have curly hair (sometimes wavy) and the straighter the hair, the less black one is.

    I think your estimates are off. Im around 3% african, my mother 6, her mother 12. None of us have ever been perceived as anything but white, in fact, no one in the family knew about this (or admitted as much) until I did 23andme.
    My 12% grandmother had straight black hair and looks like any other white lady might, for instance.

  155. You would think it would have been any number of other articles on this or similarly-themed sites, but somehow this post was the one that made me want to give up.

    I made it through her unintentionally self-parodic remarks about being too dumb to know what an editorial is and too lazy and stupid to have read one before, and was into her parochial musings on giving Colombians political asylum and then it hit me that there is nothing to be gained by going on.

    For a brief moment, I might have considered a retort along the lines of how Colombia isn’t a place in which the US or Europe claimed a piece of land, unless she means the Spanish from whom the Colombians and she are descended, and whose conflict is internally driven.

    Then I visualized the madness of focusing on logic and listened to a wav file of Jack Nicholson explaining how to write female characters from “As Good as it Gets”. Only half of the issue at hand or less, but still partly on topic.
