One place where White Privilege definitely exists is at the upper pay ranges at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Alabama, which enjoyed a bonanza fiscal year, adding over $120 million to its vast endowment.

One of the weirder aspects of the SPLC has long been its adamant refusal to hire any blacks for its best jobs. The SPLC’s new tax form lists its 11 highest paid employees for the year ending 10/31/17, and sure enough they are still all white:

Apparently, the SPLC has always believed that diversity and inclusion is for suckers racists like you, not for saints like them. Back in March 2016, Watching the Watchdogs noted this oddity:

SPLC 2016 – Celebrating 45 Years of “Whites Only” at the Top!
March 4, 2016

Spring is in the air, which means it’s time to have a look at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s latest financial reports.

While there have been some significant events surrounding the company’s bloated Endowment Fund, (to be examined in a future post), and the usual deck chair shuffling on the “Hate Map” fundraising tool, (also to be explored shortly), Watching the Watchdogs has determined that, once again, the Senior Executive Staff of the SPLC is all white, just as it has been every single year since the company opened for business in 1971.

Not a lot of other multi-million dollar companies can claim an unbroken 45-year streak of whites at the heights.

Mark Potok, looking like a melancholy George Lucas, is now out after a long run at the SPLC, by the way.

    Actually, there's another group that's clearly present in SPLC at the best jobs at rates that are through the stratosphere disproportionate (especially for Alabama!!), hmmm, I just can't seem to remember their name.

    In fact, if you subtract them out, the percentage of whites (Euro Christian-descended) there aren't that disproportionate at all. They may even be underrepresented.

    I was surprised, too. I only counted 4 out of 11 (Cohen, Levin, Potok, and Katzerman). The group is definitely more diverse than I expected. I guess Dees doesn't really hate his own kind. Judging from the 11 names, the SPLC is less anti-gentile than most Ivy League admissions offices.

  4. Odds that Potok resurfaces in a few weeks at MediaMatters, ADL, ACLU or a Soros-funded Immigrant Rights org: 90%

    SPLC for years sunk resources into their “Teaching Tolerance” propaganda for schools. Expect they’ll start diverting more of that towards Silicone Valley to reinforce the Brainwashing & censorship programs of the ADL.
    They tbirst intensely for federal Hate Speech controls in the US styled after the UK & France. They’d love to simply use their resources to sue dissidents for opposition to multiculturalism. They’d frame such crimethink as ‘incitement of racial hatred’ of course.

    I'd like a speedier game too, but have no problem with a hitter being able to fight off pitches. To take 21 pitches is outstanding. He basically ensured that pitcher was headed for the showers. There are a lot of other areas where they can cut time to speed up the game.

  7. Anonymous[340] • Disclaimer says:

    For all we know, these people are married to vibrant spouses. Mr. Dees himself advocates interracial relationshipss (except for himself):

    https://www.kidsinthehouse.com/teenager/social-life/dating/dealing-your-own-bias-towards-interracial-dating

    As America becomes more diverse, we are going to have more inter-racial relationships, dating, marriage. In one of the movies that was done – “Guess who’s coming for dinner” – that was a movie that kind of broached that subject. A white girl brings a black guy home for dinner. It’s a famous movie back in the ’50s, I think.

    And it’s going to simply happen, because young people today, in an integrated environment, are going to look at a person who is, say, African American or Asian or Latino. And they are going to look at each other. And they form relationships based on friendships. How nice is Billy or Bob or Sam or Willie, or Nu, Ivan or this is Chang. And they are going to look at that. And when they see that they are nice and treat them nice, and make them feel good, the romantic relationships can follow.

    When I grew up back in the 1940s, and ’50s in Alabama, it was a real taboo. There were State laws that prevented inter-racial marriage, and the US Supreme Court had to strike that down. But since this data today tells us that people are more and more involved in inter-racial relationships, all since this information that a lot of people are asked are you Caucasian, are you African American, all these different things. A lot of people are checking none of the above, because people are so mixed up. But quite frankly, you know, skin color and race is a real abstract concept. We are all essentially the same.

    There are several other videos on that website where Mr. Dees pontificates on diverse subjects.

  11. It’s a scam. The SPLC is run by charalatans. I’d bet my eyesight that were one to point out this fact to their leadership that those individuals would instantly spin it round using reverse psychology to agree and claim to be really the worst of sinners and thus how insidious white privilege really is and how the SPLC is therefore even more needed.

    Half of these people look like real a$$holes. Katzerman, Beirich, Utter and Costellowitz look like they’d need no second invitation to be part of a blood libel. These people have the faces of sadists, they don’t even hide it.

    As for the others… Via looks like an SJW true believer. Hutchinson looks like a random office worker. Dees looks like a generic corporate self-made a$$hole, nothing personal though. Cohen looks icy, a cool customer. The rest have a concerned look, as if they are well practiced at crying out in pain as they strike you.

  24. Seems like there’s very little stopping entreprenurial right wingers from setting up a niche left wing charity, collecting millions from gullible boomers, creating a harem of liberal thot employees and producing little to no results. Best case you get a nice lifestyle put of it; worst case, a bunch of liberals have slightly less money.

    The only bad thing about the SPLC imo is that they are plugged in to DHS and law enforcement. And that’s a really bad thing.

    Eliminating those relationships should be a major policy goal for our thing to work on.

    Other than that they don’t have much, it’s just like lighting liberal money on fire and getting a bunch of point and sputter tweets that nobody cares about

    I agree -- the batter is not to blame here; it was a heck of a feat to do what he did.

    I should have included in my post the fact that Belt's at bat took 13 minutes to complete.

    13 minutes X 60 seconds / 21 pitches = ~37 seconds/pitch.

    Foul balls waste an incredible amount of time in MLB. I've mentioned before on this site how after each foul ball everybody involved -- pitcher, batter, ump -- essentially takes an uncalled time-out. This could be reduced significantly by the umpire's game management.

  37. This is one of the unintended consequences of affirmative action.

    As a lawyer, I have come across a few really decent to very good Black lawyers. They are not working in “public interest” law firms – they tend to work in big corporate firms. Why? Because big corporate firms want to get their diversity score up. They compete to get those competent black lawyers and pay them salaries much higher than they would get at a public interest firm or “serving the community.” The Black lawyers go for the salary, and pass up the SJW opportunities at lower pay

    This can’t be discussed in polite company because it would then logically lead to a discussion of why with affirmative action and many Blacks being admitted to law school we end up with so few good black lawyers in the hiring pool.
