Last month in Slate, volunteer auxiliary comedy commisar Inkoo Kang memorably declared:

Twelve years later, we have higher standards for what counts as politically useful comedy. Borat no longer makes the cut.

Inkoo is back in Slate to declare that the output of new member of the New York Times Editorial Board Sarah Jeong and fellow Korean is politically useful comedy. So what are you complaining about, white boy?

In Latest Concession to Conservative Trolls, New York Times Blames Bigotry on Many Sides

Sarah Jeong is not “the real racist.”

By INKOO KANG

AUG 02, 2018 8:09 PM

Most of the time, being a writer isn’t very fun, and being a writer of color is even less so. Being a writer is a privilege, but writing has always been lonely work. Even for those of us lucky enough to have full-time staff jobs, it can frequently feel isolating to be in a predominantly white setting, the only commonality between fellow writers of color often being our place on our companies’ bottom rungs. It’s no surprise, then, that writers of color (and those of other marginalized groups) have forged communities on Twitter and other social media platforms, where we can communicate in languages that don’t necessitate cultural or linguistic code-switching. …

But those communities now appear to be in danger. … To the pitchfork wielders on Twitter claiming that Jeong is the “real” racist here, the Times responded by treating their new hire like a disappointed parent: “For a period of time [Jeong] responded to [sexist and racist online] harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers. She sees now that this approach only served to feed the vitriol that we too often see on social media. She regrets it, and The Times does not condone it.”

The Times’ bigotry-on-many-sides explanation is infuriating for a number of reasons. The first is that, as Splinter News’ Libby Watson notes, Jeong’s tweets were clearly jokes, not policy proposals.

Of course, Jeong’s cliched Tweets weren’t funny.

But … they were Politically Useful and that’s what counts in the Current Year.

When people of color rail against white people, that’s often shorthand for speaking out against the existing racial structure that serves to keep white people in power. The jokes that people of color make at the expense of whites are furthermore not supported by past and present state and corporate institutions. A white American telling an Asian American to “go back to where you came from,” for instance, isn’t the same as an Asian American saying the same to a white American, even if neither individual can claim ancestral roots as America’s first residents. To claim otherwise is to be blind to the history and social dynamics of this country.

Of course, Sarah Jeong and Inkoo Kang are only in this country because 30,000 dead American soldiers saved South Korea fro the tender mercies of the Kim Dynasty.

But that’s pretty much what the Times did with its explanation. It more or less validated the dangerous misconception that conservative trolls harassing a woman of color in a male-dominated field, an action that could potentially drive away even more marginalized voices, is equal to a woman of color joking about “canceling” white people, which carries no real-life weight because that doesn’t mean anything. White fragility is real, and so I’ll grant that some readers may have had their delicate skin stung by Jeong’s comments, but it’s more than likely that the very same trolls who tried to endanger Jeong’s position at the Times were acting in bad faith. The Times also ignores the fact that the current alt-right hysteria about besieged whiteness is also fuel for a violent movement that uses its power in the White House to justify inhumane and racist policies. …

As for the Times’ editorial board, it’s difficult not to notice how protective they’re being of white feelings at a time of renewed and active discrimination against people of color. Earlier this summer, the board published a treatise on the intellectual sidelining of the Jordan Petersons of the world. The following week, they put forth, practically back to back, pieces about how liberals’ meanness and smugness were responsible for a newly insurgent movement toward racism and misogyny. And earlier this week, a contributing writer essentially advised progressives to stop calling a racist person racist, at least to their face. It’s tempting to see the Times’ approach to the Jeong kerfuffle as tactical, given its older white readership who enjoyed decades in which people of color’s jokes about white people were forced to stay underground or out of earshot. But now is not the time to accommodate the already privileged.

In summary: Listen up! Even you moronic tall noses who haven’t studied the Theory of Intersectionality in college ought to be able to understand something so simple: You white people are Bad while we Korean Women Journalists of Color are Good, so we deserve to take what’s yours.

Too bad Inkoo isn’t a Dinka:

    Yes - Ah, Durante.

    It brings back youthful memories and makes me nauseous. He was still on TV variety shows when I was a kid. He was accompanied by some black guy of a similar age who like Durante always sang the same song and did the same schtick. My parents used to eat this low brow nostalgia up.

    I think that's when I first felt the alienation from the older generation.

    Comment in article that “...Jeong’s tweets were jokes not policy proposals...” shows failure to research Sarah Jeong. Her speech at the law school where she espoused racist hate for white people was not a joke and certainly was related to her goals for social policy. It is also one of many, many examples pulled from the recent history of S.Jeong’s sad life making excuses for herself and loud noise making for personal profit and self-gain. So far, the latter has worked well for her...she now sits on the NYT Ed Board. She should be far better situated to influence social policy from that position. Mission accomplished.

  2. The Borat line is interesting, and I agree. Mr. Cohen peaked with the US Ali G. The UK version was plagued by laugh tracks, but with the HBO series he killed it and took risks. The side characters on Ali G were still fairly funny, but with the Borat movie he moved too far towards mocking normal people. It had some funny moments, but I suspect I’d cringe even more if I watched it today. I cringed when I saw it in theaters then.

    What my views have to do with the aforementioned pundit, I don’t know…

    Today's Washington Post brownsplains why the substitution game does not work:


    It is likely true, as many have pointed out, that if any minority group were substituted in the place of white people into Jeong’s statements, she would not have kept her job. Some edited Jeong’s tweets to hammer home that idea, replacing the words “white people” in her tweets with “black people” and “Jewish people.”

    But Cabrera said the idea was “a complete false equivalence,” noting that whiteness isn’t a cultural identity the way being black, Japanese American or Jewish is. Cabrera listed off examples of government policies that targeted various racial groups, including the Chinese Exclusion Act and Operation Wetback, calling racism a “systemic reality” that necessarily favors white people.

    “You hear that all the time: Substitute white and put in minority group x,” he said. “The term racism is not the equivalence of prejudice or bigotry. It’s an analysis of social inequality along the color lines and an analysis of power dynamics and social oppression. None of which has ever been in the hands of people of color or communities of color: There’s never been the social structure to be able to oppress white people.”

    1. "Whiteness isn’t a cultural identity the way being black, Japanese American or Jewish is." - Whiteness is the absence of culture - a void. Before exciting colored people showed up, white people didn't even HAVE a culture. They just ate mayonnaise sandwiches on white bread and hummed tunelessly. But white people, get a cultural identity and then you will be a protected class too. On 2nd thought, don't.

    2. "There’s never been the social structure to be able to oppress white people." But we are working on it, real hard. As soon as we are completely in charge, it will no longer be ok to be racist against white people. We promise, just trust us on this.

    "the existing racial structure that serves to keep white people in power."

    She/it, whatever an Inkoo is, is railing against the racial structure of a white population controlling its own country.

    She/it wouldn't rail against the power structure of a South Korea run by Koreans.

    She/it wouldn't rail against the power structure of an African shithole 'run' by Africans.

    She/it wouldn't rail against the power structure of an Israel run by Jews.

    Straight up, anti-white racism by very confused people who have a problem with being minorities in someone else's land.

    Inkoo/Jeong need to take up their mental issues with their Korean parents - they weren't brought here at gunpoint.

    So….if we replace “white” with “jewish” you’d be cool with that, right?

    If she had any sense, she'd realize that Jews promote 'white privilege' as a special evil to maintain the ethnic structure that serves to keep Jews in power. By making POC(and whites too) fixed on White Privilege, people fail to see that the Real Power is with Jews. Diversionary tactic.

    Also, what is wrong with whites keeping the power in the nation they built? How stupid it would be for whites to build something great to hand it all on a silver platter to newcomers who bitch and whine about stupid shit. Don't Asians try to keep the power in the nation they built?

    Btw, the rise of Madame Maos is a good thing. When PC is practiced by Jews, blacks, and homos, it goes far because those three groups now have a holy aura about them. Whatever blacks say is automatically 'cool' and 'badass', even lies about BLM. Jews are forever holy holocaust people. Media promote homos as angels.
    But nasty Asians just seem shrill to most Americans. They don't want to be berated by people without Cool Credentials. The shrill Asian face of PC will make it less popular.

    I noticed that sentence too for a different reason. I half expected it to be followed by something like: “While on the surface it may appear to be an incoherent expression of apoplectic rage and a call to genocide, it’s really a coded message to our followers, a dog whistle that communicates our secret plot to create a more just and equitable society through reasoned debate and democratic processes.”

    So….if we replace “white” with “jewish” you’d be cool with that, right?
     
    Of course not! Which is why we should do it anyway, starting yesterday, and at the top of our lungs.

    When I hear these Jewish and all-but-Jewish cultural terrorists justify their bile and vitriol with it's just our powerless way to punch up at the real power in this country, I'm reminded of how quickly I'd be ferried into unemployed homelessness were I to respond in kind minus a pseudonym.

    Rule #1: he who holds the power is feared.

    Rule #2: they who continually address these (purported) power-holders with equal parts vicious mockery and various conjugations of the word "fuck" may well despise you.....but they do not fear you. Not even a little bit.

    Rule #3: go on Twitter and post, under your real name, "Fuck all white people", "Fuck all Jews" , "Fuck all Asians", and so forth. Whichever tweet leads directly to immediate and dire changes in your personal circumstances will tell you everything you need to know about power, and who holds it.

    Honestly....a six-year-old could figure this out. (Which is probably why we're prompted to poison them with puberty-blocking drugs, more and more often.)

    Watch him yell a “colorful” term from 3:15-3:25.

    Yeah - the young Koreans feel the pressure from a pretty race-conscious society, and some of them feel free now for "leaving all behind" (EAGELS) - and try to "Sail to the Higher / - Just like the missionairies did/ so many years from now" - only in a somewhat different way. Diversity is the new IT-thing, spiritually.

    (Now I think of the Benedictine monks, who helped bring Christianity to Korea (quite a few of them from the monastery of Münsterschwarzach, ca. 120 km east of Frankfurt - incredibly beautiful up to this day) and now I add: Beware of those "children crusades" (Sting).

    It's all very easy (= heavily entangled...) - all of this this Korean-American (and Korean-European) mindset stuff. There'll never be fast, or simple or clear solutions to such layers and layers of multicultural give and take over centuries.

    Of course it was a travesty, in more ways than one. Like every war the US has been involved in since the Civil War it was stupid and unnecessary and absolutely no threat to our national security. Compounding the error was the terrible decision of General Douglas MacArthur to pursue the North Korean forces to the Yalu River in the dead of winter. The Chinese counterattacks forced our troops back south as far as Seoul and eventually the 38th parallel served as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The rest is history taking us to 2018 with the communists led by Kim still in power. You could say the 30,000 died in vain but I would say they died for the honor and glory of General Mac who like a good soldier faded away when he should have been court-martialed. And he might have, had not President Truman and the Joint Chiefs of Staff also been complicit in the misadventure called the Korean War.

    Also, I'm not a WaPo writer (or a University of Arizona professor), but shouldn't that be "equivalent"?

    Sounds like someone has never traveled to non-white countries: "It’s an analysis of social inequality along the color lines and an analysis of power dynamics and social oppression. None of which has ever been in the hands of people of color or communities of color: There’s never been the social structure to be able to oppress white people."

    Encouraging to see the pushback in the comments.

    I wonder if the WaPo, NYT, etc. think this is going to help their cause in the midterm elections.

    BTW, It was only half brownsplaining (and not the lead half at that). I'll leave it to someone else to check on the background of the lead author.

    Someone in another thread mentioned the viral video of the girl walking around nyc getting catcalled. Mostly by blacks and Latinos. The producers said oh there were white guys who didn’t make the cut. Supposedly because they weren’t very aggressive or said stuff off camera. In other words didn’t really harass.

    A slate article (or some such) had a blackish gal writing that white guys don’t have to harass that way. They own the space. Black guys need to because they are powerless. Etc.

    Which is hilarious gobbledygook because the whole point was these black guys owned the streets and the girl had to put up with it. If you grew up in public schools in the nyc area you know that blacks and Latinos are in fact the power from City Council to principal down to hallways and streets. They know it. The fact that there are more white billionaires doesn’t make it up to the vast majority of oppressed white kids.

    Steve’s recent stats about Asian, white, Latino and black household income puts the lie to the idea those disparities have much to do about oppression or power. Especially supposed anti-Asian bias.

    Sure they would. Content from writers of all colors is at a pretty low pitch; it's just that in many contexts (but not in others: see NYT editorial board) being "colored" or some other Leftist fixation makes getting published more easily.

    White men are showing themselves to be played for chumps when they risk their lives for non whites whether in the military or as volunteers in disasters. There is no appreciation (and sometimes with our stupid wars there shouldn’t be). Then when they move to the US, while being subsidized by whites, they try to undermine whites. When there is a disaster in the US, the white working class immediately rushes out to help and that includes helping people like Jeong who openly mock and despise them the rest of the time. Time for whites to only help whites financially, militarily, and in their volunteering. Let the rest who hate us help themselves.

    Actually, our 'institutions'--in particular the "corporate media"--are full of people with names like Inkoo Kang lecturing us about our own country.

    "When people of color rail against white people, that’s often shorthand for speaking out against the existing racial structure that serves to keep white people in power."
     
    So....if we replace "white" with "jewish" you'd be cool with that, right?

    “the existing racial structure that serves to keep white people in power.”

    She/it, whatever an Inkoo is, is railing against the racial structure of a white population controlling its own country.

    She/it wouldn’t rail against the power structure of a South Korea run by Koreans.

    She/it wouldn’t rail against the power structure of an African shithole ‘run’ by Africans.

    She/it wouldn’t rail against the power structure of an Israel run by Jews.

    Straight up, anti-white racism by very confused people who have a problem with being minorities in someone else’s land.

    Inkoo/Jeong need to take up their mental issues with their Korean parents – they weren’t brought here at gunpoint.

    Today's Washington Post brownsplains why the substitution game does not work:


    It is likely true, as many have pointed out, that if any minority group were substituted in the place of white people into Jeong’s statements, she would not have kept her job. Some edited Jeong’s tweets to hammer home that idea, replacing the words “white people” in her tweets with “black people” and “Jewish people.”

    But Cabrera said the idea was “a complete false equivalence,” noting that whiteness isn’t a cultural identity the way being black, Japanese American or Jewish is. Cabrera listed off examples of government policies that targeted various racial groups, including the Chinese Exclusion Act and Operation Wetback, calling racism a “systemic reality” that necessarily favors white people.

    “You hear that all the time: Substitute white and put in minority group x,” he said. “The term racism is not the equivalence of prejudice or bigotry. It’s an analysis of social inequality along the color lines and an analysis of power dynamics and social oppression. None of which has ever been in the hands of people of color or communities of color: There’s never been the social structure to be able to oppress white people.”

Before exciting colored people showed up, white people didn't even HAVE a culture. They just ate mayonnaise sandwiches on white bread and hummed tunelessly. But white people, get a cultural identity and then you will be a protected class too. On 2nd thought, don't.

    2. "There’s never been the social structure to be able to oppress white people." But we are working on it, real hard. As soon as we are completely in charge, it will no longer be ok to be racist against white people. We promise, just trust us on this.

    White people are being told openly that they will be exterminated…but it’s not OK to defend themselves and their civilization.

    We really need to appropriate anti-white rhetoric for our own ends. For example:

    When goyim rail against Jews, that’s often shorthand for speaking out against the existing racial structure that serves to keep Jews in power. The jokes that goyim make at the expense of Jews are furthermore not supported by past and present state and corporate institutions. A Hebrew American telling a goy American to “go back to where you came from,” for instance, isn’t the same as an goy American saying the same to a Hebrew American, even if neither individual can claim ancestral roots as America’s first residents. To claim otherwise is to be blind to the history and social dynamics of this country.

    The Borat line is interesting, and I agree. Mr. Cohen peaked with the US Ali G. The UK version was plagued by laugh tracks, but with the HBO series he killed it and took risks. The side characters on Ali G were still fairly funny, but with the Borat movie he moved too far towards mocking normal people. It had some funny moments, but I suspect I'd cringe even more if I watched it today. I cringed when I saw it in theaters then.

    What my views have to do with the aforementioned pundit, I don't know...

    Cringiness is independent from humor or morality.

    “Students Lose Acceptance to Harvard Over Racist Memes”

    “Does posting incredibly offensive content under your real name mean that you're not smart enough to go to Harvard? … Is the withdrawal of admission on the basis of shitposting going to become a national trend? I'd rather not consider the answers to these questions, but unfortunately, time will probably tell."

    Sarah went to Harvard Law–possibly as the Token Oriental? Guess she held her tweets ’till after she left.

    This stuff goes in cycles to an extent. When I was in high school, the "cool kids" dictated that "cool music" consisted of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Rush, probably largely because parents hated it the most. Any kid admitting to preferring Frank, Dean and Sammy would have been beaten up, and this was a suburban and upscale public school that the nation's premier (in terms of volume, not quality: they don't call it Buttwiper for nothing) beer making family was ok with letting its scion attend. Elvis and the Beach Boys were also detested for a lack of untunefulness and oldpeopleness. (New wave and punk were also detested, because they correctly figured it was a throwback to rockabilly, dago-wop-wop-do-wop (Hi, Dago Dan Natale, if you're still alive!), girl group, and Chuck Berry music. Chuck was doubly detested because of his proclivities, which all and sundry in his hometown and mine knew well of.)

    But let's face it: my generation saw those guys in their dotage, and even though they still had some qualities, seeing them that way for the first time without context or nostalgia was an experience that lacked much to recommend it.

    By the time I was maybe 35, 40, at least a certain segment of high schoolers seemed to find big band and old line show biz acts hip and cool again. The acts were mostly dead or at least no longer performing then (Pope Francis Albert has been dead over twenty years now: I still remember exactly where I was when I heard the news and how) and they were seeing them and hearing them from films and records (CDs were in then, but the masters came off the same open reel tapes, half inch half track 7 or 15 ips Ampex or Studer pro machines, their parents' or grandparents' LPs did) during their ring-a-ding-ding, hijinks pulling, broad chasing days. It was the crappic, stadium and AOR rock acts, not these guys, their parents liked so this had an element of rebellion, even, to it.

    Try to picture what 18 year old kids really think while watching Mick Jagger, even though he really does still pretty much move like Jagger, or perhaps even the two-years-younger punk princess of three rock and roll generations later who moves like Ann B. Davis and always did. (You didn't notice because of the good Doctor on the risers pounding everyone into submission.) They can not be eating this stuff up at face value.

    I was playing around at Guitar Center with a Korean made PRS and absentmindedly strummed the first thing that came into my mind the other day: "Stacy's Mom" , a roughly ten year old pop rocker famous only for having one of Sir Rod's exes, Rachel Hunter, in the video. Oh, I see, it's actually fifteen years old, my bad. Anyway, this shred kid stops for a minute, walks over to me, and says, "That's really old school!"

    I thought a little, played as best I could Chuck Berry's Carol, and said, "No, that's old school".

    He looked at me like a space alien.
    I loved it.

    Even for those of us lucky enough to have full-time staff jobs, it can frequently feel isolating to be in a predominantly white setting, the only commonality between fellow writers of color often being our place on our companies’ bottom rungs.

    According to her Twitter bio, Inkoo Kang is based on the West Coast.

    I was an intern and writer for The San Francisco Bay Guardian in the early nineties, and even then “the setting” there was exceedingly diverse. I also wrote for The Daily Californian, and my editors were either Chinese-American women or Jewish-American men. I’m pretty sure the diversification of newsrooms in the Bay Area has only accelerated during the intervening twenty-five years.

    These constant appeals to “marginalization” and “isolation” by writers like Inkoo Kang are insufferable. “Social justice” is just a tool they cynically wield to elbow others out of the way. As long as naive boomers and whites keep believing it, it will keep working. In my case, I saw the writing on the wall even then, and got out as quickly as I could.

    However, I suppose if you average out Eli and Erin you come up with a shade of medium brown.

    As Sullivan explains today, this notion has been floating around the Left and the universities for a while - "racism" is defined as "that which white people do", so non-whites are literally incapable of racism, at least in white societies. Whatever Sarah Jeong does, by definition it cannot be "racism", which is sure a convenient thing for her because we know that racists can't last a day at the NY Times. Thankfully, as a woman of color, Jeong is incapable of racism so she has nothing to worry about. This sounds completely Alice in Wonderland crazy, but believe it or not, that is the explanation for why Jeong has a job and similarly situated white tweeters don't.

    Stuff like this is intended as preaching to the believers, because no one else will buy it. I think they are so much in their own bubble that they discount the possibility of backlash. Trump is in the White House because of the Roooshians, not white backlash.

    Which is hilarious gobbledygook because the whole point was these black guys owned the streets and the girl had to put up with it. If you grew up in public schools in the nyc area you know that blacks and Latinos are in fact the power from City Council to principal down to hallways and streets. They know it. The fact that there are more white billionaires doesn’t make it up to the vast majority of oppressed white kids.

    Steve’s recent stats about Asian, white, Latino and black household income puts the lie to the idea those disparities have much to do about oppression or power. Especially supposed anti-Asian bias.

    Yes - Ah, Durante.

    It brings back youthful memories and makes me nauseous. He was still on TV variety shows when I was a kid. He was accompanied by some black guy of a similar age who like Durante always sang the same song and did the same schtick. My parents used to eat this low brow nostalgia up.

    I think that's when I first felt the alienation from the older generation.

    Of course, Sarah Jeong and Inkoo Kang are only in this country because 30,000 dead American soldiers saved South Korea from the tender mercies of the Kim Dynasty.

    But North Korea exists only because US hatched a plot to divide Korea with the USSR. And in ‘saving’ Korea, US dropped so many bombs and who knows how many people died.

    What US and USSR did to Korea was a crime but because it happened under the cover of Liberation(from the Japanese), the extent of the crime was never fully addressed. Also, prior to US-Japan split, US had been mostly supportive of Japanese colonization of Korea as it’s been supportive of Zionist colonization of Palestine, now Israel. US has been a mixed blessing to the world, often playing god in ‘giveth, taketh away’ manner. And today, its influence — homo agenda, rap, black worship, Jewish supremacy, Wars for Israel, anti-Russian hate, financial robbery — is almost entirely bad.

    The problem with idiots like Jeong and Inkoo is they are merely continuance of Korean dog-behavior vis-a-vis America. Nothing has really changed. Whatever prevails in the US, they follow and parrot. The current US narrative is ‘blame whitey 24/7′, and these yellow girls follow the narrative to the letter. They can’t think outside the box of PC as official ideology of the power. They were teacher’s pets who soaked up all PC uncritically. So, in that sense, they are ‘pro-American’ and more-American-than-American. It all depends on ‘which America’. They grew up in US under Jewish Control, and the Narrative is whitey sucks in Propositional America. If US was very Christian and proudly white, these girls would be Christian and pro-white. But NYT, the #1 paper of America, is totally Jewish, anti-white, and globalist. It favors illegal ‘dreamers’ to real Americans. That is the dominant Americanism.

    What is America? It all depends on who has the power. The globalist elites rewrote the meaning of Americanism just like the Bolsheviks in the 1920s and globo-privatizers in the 1990s rewrote the meaning of Russianism. Yellows don’t make the narrative. They have nothing new to offer. They just follow the ideas of others, the Power.

    This is a fascinating assertion: "The term racism is not the equivalence of prejudice or bigotry."
    Also, I'm not a WaPo writer (or a University of Arizona professor), but shouldn't that be "equivalent"?

    Sounds like someone has never traveled to non-white countries: "It’s an analysis of social inequality along the color lines and an analysis of power dynamics and social oppression. None of which has ever been in the hands of people of color or communities of color: There’s never been the social structure to be able to oppress white people."

    Encouraging to see the pushback in the comments.

    I wonder if the WaPo, NYT, etc. think this is going to help their cause in the midterm elections.

    BTW, It was only half brownsplaining (and not the lead half at that). I'll leave it to someone else to check on the background of the lead author.

    When I said “brownsplaining” I was actually referring to Cabrera , although he actually looks like he takes after the Conquistador side of his family:

    http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs040/1102583984724/img/238.jpg?

    However, I suppose if you average out Eli and Erin you come up with a shade of medium brown.

    As Sullivan explains today, this notion has been floating around the Left and the universities for a while – “racism” is defined as “that which white people do”, so non-whites are literally incapable of racism, at least in white societies. Whatever Sarah Jeong does, by definition it cannot be “racism”, which is sure a convenient thing for her because we know that racists can’t last a day at the NY Times. Thankfully, as a woman of color, Jeong is incapable of racism so she has nothing to worry about. This sounds completely Alice in Wonderland crazy, but believe it or not, that is the explanation for why Jeong has a job and similarly situated white tweeters don’t.

    Stuff like this is intended as preaching to the believers, because no one else will buy it. I think they are so much in their own bubble that they discount the possibility of backlash. Trump is in the White House because of the Roooshians, not white backlash.

  58. Jeong and her mob are not, of course, in any way motivated by being Greedy; oh, no – their motivations, like Al Sharpton, Morris Dees, and so many others, are entirely empyreal.

    Here’s an example. I’m a bit late picking up on this as I am increasingly removed from law, but for those inclined to hunker down with a tub of popcorn and watch the fur fly amongst the coalition of the fringes, it’s all there:

    - Empowered woman of colour (#HIND00) in the Current Year gadding about NYC
    - Is accosted by A superhumanly priapic lecher of colour (#N3GR00)
    - in BigLaw firm avowing #UsToo
    - HR Lady of Colour (#M3ST20) attempts to hush the complaints
    - Complaints leads not with law or facts, but with a paean to Social Just-Us
    - Sadly, the plaintiff’s lawyer is (((predictably))) not Oriental for the hat trick

    The #MeToo movement has shined a light on the misogynistic culture that pervades society – a culture where men sexually harass women and use their power to prey upon subordinates, where women who complain of misconduct are targeted for retaliation and where harassers are ultimately protected. Dentons US LLP (“Dentons”), the largest law firm in the world, has shown that the legal profession – despite being held to ethical rules above and beyond the law which prohibits sexual harassment and discrimination – is rife with the same abuses.

    That’s the FIRST COUNT of the complaint! For those who may not understand, this is to be a recitation of facts which form the basis in law of the prayer for relief. That’s exactly what a complaint is. It’s a very particular thing. You can review the remaining counts of the complaint here for a wonderful example of how these things are done. The first count, though, is completely spurious, irrelevant, and immaterial. Defendants must file an answer to a complaint, denying (perhaps clarifying), or affirming each count. How the Hell is one supposed to answer the first count?

    Defendant admits in part and denies in part Defendant admits the #MeToo movement has shined a light on the misogynistic culture that pervades society – a culture where men sexually harass women and use their power to prey upon subordinates, where women who complain of misconduct are targeted for retaliation and where harassers are ultimately protected. Defendant admits to being the largest law firm in the world. Defendant denies that it has shown that the legal profession – despite being held to ethical rules above and beyond the law which prohibits sexual harassment and discrimination – is rife with the same abuses.

    Nope.

    Instead we get a mountain of drivel like this:

    Dentons has been recognised by third parties for its initiatives to advance the professional careers of women, including:

    - Working Mother Magazine named Dentons to its Best Law Firms for Women list in 2017 and 2018.
    - Dentons has been named a WILEF Golf Certified Firm for six consecutive years.
    - Dentons has been identified as a 2017 Top Performer by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity

    I want to be glacially clear for lay readers about what goes on here and why it matters. Assuming the complaint is true for the sake of argument: Some (married!) pervert did a lot of despicable things (groping and making foul, explicit sexual propositions) to a his immediate subordinate. She complained in all the appropriate manners and was essentially ignored as the harassment continued. She, quite understandably, sued. She is entitled to damages and the employer and her supervisor should be castigated. That’s law and justice. The employer’s efforts to cheerlead women, be diverse, and all the rest is irrelevant and immaterial to the whole affair – but it is being made a centerpiece of the dispute. The phenomenon matters because it is part of the road toward making such cases not about preventing, stopping, and punishing what anyone agrees is vile behaviour, but about having the employer demonstrate sufficient groveling and kissing of rings apart from anything to do with a particular case or controversy. Its natural conclusion is civil liability for not writing enough checks to Morris Dees.

    Still and all, I must applaud counsel for the lost art of knowing differentiating between dashes and hyphens.

    Even for those of us lucky enough to have full-time staff jobs, it can frequently feel isolating to be in a predominantly white setting, the only commonality between fellow writers of color often being our place on our companies’ bottom rungs.
     
    According to her Twitter bio, Inkoo Kang is based on the West Coast.

    I was an intern and writer for The San Francisco Bay Guardian in the early nineties, and even then "the setting" there was exceedingly diverse. I also wrote for The Daily Californian, and my editors were either Chinese-American women or Jewish-American men. I'm pretty sure the diversification of newsrooms in the Bay Area has only accelerated during the intervening twenty-five years.

    These constant appeals to "marginalization" and "isolation" by writers like Inkoo Kang are insufferable. "Social justice" is just a tool they cynically wield to elbow others out of the way. As long as naive boomers and whites keep believing it, it will keep working. In my case, I saw the writing on the wall even then, and got out as quickly as I could.

    Dude, the Daily Cal was insufferable in the late 80′s when i read it. I never knew the racial background of the people writing it, I just assumed they were all old, white hippy-commies left over from the 60′s. And the SF Guardian was even worse.

  68. The Dinka are one of the tribes known for their “cow blowing”, which is not an initiation but a way to stimulate the cow to produce more milk. (Try that with your wife and newborn!

    It’s also not limited to Africans, but is known in far northeast Asia, among the Kalmyk and Yakuts, and even some Chinese. (In other words, awfully close to Korea.)

    Conquistador Americans being on the side of the angels is one of the more interesting things about the Current Year. Given the active large scale extermination of the natives in those parts of the world.

    Contrast the millions mentioned here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocide_of_indigenous_peoples#Spanish_colonization_of_the_Americas
    with the tens of thousands mentioned here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocide_of_indigenous_peoples#United_States_colonization_and_westward_expansion
    (a fun subtlety is the US section for California talks about how "Spanish and Mexican colonization and epidemics" accounted for the vast majority of deaths there)

    Any even slightly thoughtful person should realize that '“racism” is defined as “that which white people do”' is simply a lie. Change whites to blacks in Jeong's tweets and she is toast. The key is that her target is whites, not that she is a POC. Goodwhites would be allowed to write tweets similar to hers as well.

    iSteve's victim hierarchy is a much better model for Current Year "racism." One interesting nuance of that is that whites who criticize other whites are "Goodwhites", but blacks who criticize other blacks are "Uncle Toms." Are other groups (e.g. Asians) allowed to criticize their own?

    They’re not criticizing other whites. They’re deracinated global citizens. They’re criticizing (and worse) whites to signal that status.

    Of course, Sarah Jeong and Inkoo Kang are only in this country because 30,000 dead American soldiers saved South Korea fro the tender mercies of the Kim Dynasty.
     
    The fact that Sarah(great Korean name) Jeong exists is proof the Korean war was a travesty.

    Of course it was a travesty, in more ways than one. Like every war the US has been involved in since the Civil War it was stupid and unnecessary and absolutely no threat to our national security. Compounding the error was the terrible decision of General Douglas MacArthur to pursue the North Korean forces to the Yalu River in the dead of winter. The Chinese counterattacks forced our troops back south as far as Seoul and eventually the 38th parallel served as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The rest is history taking us to 2018 with the communists led by Kim still in power. You could say the 30,000 died in vain but I would say they died for the honor and glory of General Mac who like a good soldier faded away when he should have been court-martialed. And he might have, had not President Truman and the Joint Chiefs of Staff also been complicit in the misadventure called the Korean War.

    I must've been asleep, or distracted and not paying attention...

    When did Asians get drafted into the "people of color" brigade?

    As opposed to referring to "blacks," which still is OK (inasmuch as African-American might be preferred), referring to East Asians (Japanese, Chinese, Koreans) as "yellow" was considered a slur. Are we now to suppose referring to them as yellow, as part of the POC coalition is OK?

    I assumed the "people of color" designation was an alternative to NAM (non-Asian minority) acronym.

    Anyone?

    I have the same question as you, I was not aware that South Koreans or other Asians are now designated as people of color.
    The term “Yellow races” is no longer in vogue as much better diets over the years have made the yellow tint largely disappear.

    Asians are assimilation machines.

    Jeong then is simply parroting the existing East Coast elite culture, where she has spent her entire life. The doors for this really were opened by BLM and Ta-Nehasi Coates, who unleashed a wave of anti-white feeling among the elite and which has resulted in more incitement being covered by the media on a whole. As you know, there is a general feeling of ascendancy among the East Coast elite, of black and brown holiness which is never challenged or questioned.

    But Asians are the builders of great civilizations, which operated by autocratic structure. They are inherently more hierarchical and orderly than blacks and browns, who, outside of Islam, never really got around to building much, and who have a tendency towards murderous envy as we see in Coates’s case. Coates, btw, who has never visited Africa, but prefers to stay alienated in Western privilege and is feted for it.

    Looking at her, I would also have to guess that she has never dated an Asian guy. The Leftist Asian women tend to hate their own, which is a contradiction and which is why Asian women have the highest rates of mental illness in the country.

    Jeong and Inkoo are like all the world. Hating on whitey but preferring to live in white-made world than non-white world,even their own.

    If they want to be saved from White Privilege, they should go back home... or they should move to Africa and live with black power. Move to South Africa that is making the final moves against whitey.

    But when given a choice, they all want to move to white lands.
    Problem is that too many whites, now under Jewish control, educate the new-comers to hate whitey. Whites in media and academia tend to be 'good whites' whose self-worth relies on attacking 'bad whites'. Even Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan praised Antifa as akin to US soldiers in WWII for attacking the Unite the Right rally.

    They should go home and produce a non-racist and just homeland. Ours was built on the industrial revolution, which is about as racist as you can get. All those whiteys slaving away for generations has left an odor of privilege that can’t be removed without leveling the place.

    The level of “education” taking place is astounding. This is a full-throated propaganda effort brainwashing a hostile takeover by a supposedly united coalition of the rest of the world. As amazing as it would be to see them eventually eat their own, it is now or never for this country to realize what our future will be if this effort triumphs.

    Yeah – the young Koreans feel the pressure from a pretty race-conscious society, and some of them feel free now for “leaving all behind” (EAGELS) – and try to “Sail to the Higher / – Just like the missionairies did/ so many years from now” – only in a somewhat different way. Diversity is the new IT-thing, spiritually.

    Actually, our 'institutions'--in particular the "corporate media"--are full of people with names like Inkoo Kang lecturing us about our own country.

    "When people of color rail against white people, that’s often shorthand for speaking out against the existing racial structure that serves to keep white people in power."
     
    So....if we replace "white" with "jewish" you'd be cool with that, right?

    I noticed that sentence too for a different reason. I half expected it to be followed by something like: “While on the surface it may appear to be an incoherent expression of apoplectic rage and a call to genocide, it’s really a coded message to our followers, a dog whistle that communicates our secret plot to create a more just and equitable society through reasoned debate and democratic processes.”

    White men are showing themselves to be played for chumps when they risk their lives for non whites whether in the military or as volunteers in disasters. There is no appreciation (and sometimes with our stupid wars there shouldn't be). Then when they move to the US, while being subsidized by whites, they try to undermine whites. When there is a disaster in the US, the white working class immediately rushes out to help and that includes helping people like Jeong who openly mock and despise them the rest of the time. Time for whites to only help whites financially, militarily, and in their volunteering. Let the rest who hate us help themselves.

    One thing we can do is never donate blood or organs. Make sure to check no organ donation when you renew your Dr license.

    Non Whites don’t donate organs or blood. Only Whites do. Blacks already have affirmative action dibs on kidneys

    It’s not much but it’s something we can do and the government can’t do a thing about it.

    That's very interesting. I didn't know any of that because I never played the guitar. I only have one guitar story.

    I had a friend in San Francisco who was a "Red Guard". His was Chinese. He had been a far right political guy. He had gone to VMI (Virginia Military Institute). But in the sixties he did a 180 degree flip and carried around with him Mao's Little Red Book. Very commie. He was an embodiment of Eric Hoffer's idea that the far right and the far left mapped together against the middle.

    He had a plastic guitar. He kept wanting to play it for me. I was skeptical. But he said everyone was always surprised when he played it at just how how good it sounded. So eventually he played for me.

    It was really terrible. He must have had some kind of hearing disability. I never thought much of Mao Tse Tung after that.

    I think that’s when I first felt the alienation from the older generation.

    This stuff goes in cycles to an extent. When I was in high school, the “cool kids” dictated that “cool music” consisted of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Rush, probably largely because parents hated it the most. Any kid admitting to preferring Frank, Dean and Sammy would have been beaten up, and this was a suburban and upscale public school that the nation’s premier (in terms of volume, not quality: they don’t call it Buttwiper for nothing) beer making family was ok with letting its scion attend. Elvis and the Beach Boys were also detested for a lack of untunefulness and oldpeopleness. (New wave and punk were also detested, because they correctly figured it was a throwback to rockabilly, dago-wop-wop-do-wop (Hi, Dago Dan Natale, if you’re still alive!), girl group, and Chuck Berry music. Chuck was doubly detested because of his proclivities, which all and sundry in his hometown and mine knew well of.)

    But let’s face it: my generation saw those guys in their dotage, and even though they still had some qualities, seeing them that way for the first time without context or nostalgia was an experience that lacked much to recommend it.

    By the time I was maybe 35, 40, at least a certain segment of high schoolers seemed to find big band and old line show biz acts hip and cool again. The acts were mostly dead or at least no longer performing then (Pope Francis Albert has been dead over twenty years now: I still remember exactly where I was when I heard the news and how) and they were seeing them and hearing them from films and records (CDs were in then, but the masters came off the same open reel tapes, half inch half track 7 or 15 ips Ampex or Studer pro machines, their parents’ or grandparents’ LPs did) during their ring-a-ding-ding, hijinks pulling, broad chasing days. It was the crappic, stadium and AOR rock acts, not these guys, their parents liked so this had an element of rebellion, even, to it.

    Try to picture what 18 year old kids really think while watching Mick Jagger, even though he really does still pretty much move like Jagger, or perhaps even the two-years-younger punk princess of three rock and roll generations later who moves like Ann B. Davis and always did. (You didn’t notice because of the good Doctor on the risers pounding everyone into submission.) They can not be eating this stuff up at face value.

    I was playing around at Guitar Center with a Korean made PRS and absentmindedly strummed the first thing that came into my mind the other day: “Stacy’s Mom” , a roughly ten year old pop rocker famous only for having one of Sir Rod’s exes, Rachel Hunter, in the video. Oh, I see, it’s actually fifteen years old, my bad. Anyway, this shred kid stops for a minute, walks over to me, and says, “That’s really old school!”

    I thought a little, played as best I could Chuck Berry’s Carol, and said, “No, that’s old school”.

    He looked at me like a space alien.
    I loved it.

    I don't understand some of your references. Right after I got out of the Army I stumbled into Bach and Mozart so I have no idea what Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin sounded like. I know the names of course but as far as I know have never heard anything of theirs.

    My father listened to all that Big Band stuff. I went to the opera.

    So I know about roll and roll only up to the Beatles. Then there is a hole in my knowledge of pop music that continues to this day. I used to be pretty good at the party game "Trivial Pursuit" but I could never answer a question on pop music.

    However when I went to American University and was recruited to host an evening campus radio show I was told to always program lots of Frank Sinatra. Apparently the girls in the dorms still dug him after he had faded from the mainstream Top 40 lists. And they were right. Frank had a hidden audience of young female fans . This would have been around 1963.

    Yes – Ah, Durante.

    It brings back youthful memories and makes me nauseous. He was still on TV variety shows when I was a kid. He was accompanied by some black guy of a similar age who like Durante always sang the same song and did the same schtick. My parents used to eat this low brow nostalgia up.

    I think that’s when I first felt the alienation from the older generation.
     
    This stuff goes in cycles to an extent. When I was in high school, the "cool kids" dictated that "cool music" consisted of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Rush, probably largely because parents hated it the most. Any kid admitting to preferring Frank, Dean and Sammy would have been beaten up, and this was a suburban and upscale public school that the nation's premier (in terms of volume, not quality: they don't call it Buttwiper for nothing) beer making family was ok with letting its scion attend. Elvis and the Beach Boys were also detested for a lack of untunefulness and oldpeopleness. (New wave and punk were also detested, because they correctly figured it was a throwback to rockabilly, dago-wop-wop-do-wop (Hi, Dago Dan Natale, if you're still alive!), girl group, and Chuck Berry music. Chuck was doubly detested because of his proclivities, which all and sundry in his hometown and mine knew well of.)

    But let's face it: my generation saw those guys in their dotage, and even though they still had some qualities, seeing them that way for the first time without context or nostalgia was an experience that lacked much to recommend it.

    By the time I was maybe 35, 40, at least a certain segment of high schoolers seemed to find big band and old line show biz acts hip and cool again. The acts were mostly dead or at least no longer performing then (Pope Francis Albert has been dead over twenty years now: I still remember exactly where I was when I heard the news and how) and they were seeing them and hearing them from films and records (CDs were in then, but the masters came off the same open reel tapes, half inch half track 7 or 15 ips Ampex or Studer pro machines, their parents' or grandparents' LPs did) during their ring-a-ding-ding, hijinks pulling, broad chasing days. It was the crappic, stadium and AOR rock acts, not these guys, their parents liked so this had an element of rebellion, even, to it.

    Try to picture what 18 year old kids really think while watching Mick Jagger, even though he really does still pretty much move like Jagger, or perhaps even the two-years-younger punk princess of three rock and roll generations later who moves like Ann B. Davis and always did. (You didn't notice because of the good Doctor on the risers pounding everyone into submission.) They can not be eating this stuff up at face value.

    I was playing around at Guitar Center with a Korean made PRS and absentmindedly strummed the first thing that came into my mind the other day: "Stacy's Mom" , a roughly ten year old pop rocker famous only for having one of Sir Rod's exes, Rachel Hunter, in the video. Oh, I see, it's actually fifteen years old, my bad. Anyway, this shred kid stops for a minute, walks over to me, and says, "That's really old school!"

    I thought a little, played as best I could Chuck Berry's Carol, and said, "No, that's old school".

    He looked at me like a space alien.
    I loved it.
    Geezerhood, here I come!

    I’m surprised he was so young: I remember thinking the Dag had to be in his fifties back then.
    Boy, he was a hardass. He, of course, was just playing the old CO/XO, Mutt and Jeff routine with old Chrome Dome Al Burr. He played the role very well.

    My copy of the Pawesehi and that piece of imitation parchment they gave me went into a barrel with old diapers and a two liter of Jet A a couple of decades ago. I’ve never set foot on its grounds since the day I graduated and never will again, God(dess) willing.

    George Gobel is also famous amongst vintage guitar twats because he had his own "model" of Gibson guitar. It was an L-5 with a thin body, a cutaway, but no pickups, meaning that it was really useful mostly as a prop or a practice guitar. By then, although the L-5 was originally an acoustic guitar, almost all were made with heavy thick tops and intended for use with top mounted pickups by jazz guitarists.

    Despite not being a practical working instrument-it played ok, but had neither electronics nor much of an acoustic sound, the fame of Gobel (or perhaps the demand for handy but elegant looking prop guitars by roadshow or tourist trap production emcees / vocalists?) meant Gibbo actually sold about fifty of the beasts.

    That’s very interesting. I didn’t know any of that because I never played the guitar. I only have one guitar story.

    I had a friend in San Francisco who was a “Red Guard”. His was Chinese. He had been a far right political guy. He had gone to VMI (Virginia Military Institute). But in the sixties he did a 180 degree flip and carried around with him Mao’s Little Red Book. Very commie. He was an embodiment of Eric Hoffer’s idea that the far right and the far left mapped together against the middle.

    He had a plastic guitar. He kept wanting to play it for me. I was skeptical. But he said everyone was always surprised when he played it at just how how good it sounded. So eventually he played for me.

    It was really terrible. He must have had some kind of hearing disability. I never thought much of Mao Tse Tung after that.

    Comics seldom last long. Those who are bland like Johnny Carson last longer. Those who are striking and original fade fast. Durante must have been funny at some point. The closest modern example might be Jim Carrey.

    At one time Carry was so funny to the American public that he had the highest salary of anyone in movies - I think. But too much of all that goofy rubber face stuff and he has become a pariah. I'd pay not to have to see him now.

    Chevy Chase and Richard Prior early in their careers were comic phenomena but now have made more critically panned movies than anyone in the history of Hollywood. Their films stink. Pryor only performs in a rubber mask. But both saved Saturday Night Live when they were relative unknowns.

    When I was a little kid for some reason I thought the funniest thing I'd ever heard was when George Gobel said , "Well I'll be a dirty bird". A few years later and he was inhabiting one of outer boxes on "Hollywood Squares" and mystifying kids everywhere why this guy was on TV.

    The Seven Year Itch seems to slay 'Eternal Love' in, in fact, seven years. Comic Genius only lasts about five.

    Er…you do realise Richard Pryor has been dead for thirteen years? (Are there rubber masks and comedy clubs in heaven…?) Maybe the present tense was an error or a kind of historical present, in which case I apologise for being obtuse.

    I of course meant Eddie Murphy not Richard Prior. I'm a bit embarrassed. I do not in fact think they all look alike.

    You can do your own calculations given the information available on "Rotten Tomatoes". If you add it up you see that virtually all movie stars, and directors have a critical success rate of around 60%. That means that the best most popular performers also have had some flops. Some do a little better. Paul Neman for example had a higher than average success rate as does Tom Hanks.

    But no one has a high failure rate. Hollywood productions cost too much to allow unpopular performers to endure. There are two exceptions to this rule Chevy Chase and Eddie Murphy. Based on their critical reception (terrible) you would have expected to never have seen either again after their respective initial success.

    I think Edmund Kean was right. "Dying is easy, comedy is hard". Lots of guys can act grim and manly. Some can do kung fu. But really funny people are rare and the supply of good comics falls far short of the demand. People like comedies so Chase and Murphy continue to be cast in these lousy films despite being embarrassingly bad.

    In a sense Inkoo is right. I don't really care that much if Jeong meant what she wrote sincerely or if they were jokes. I just wanted a scalp.

    But I don't think this is in any way different from what motivates leftists, so I have no qualms about this.

    Things have come to who will survive. Any white person who doesn’t understand this will likely not survive.

    Jeong and her mob are not, of course, in any way motivated by being Greedy; oh, no – their motivations, like Al Sharpton, Morris Dees, and so many others, are entirely empyreal.

    Here's an example. I'm a bit late picking up on this as I am increasingly removed from law, but for those inclined to hunker down with a tub of popcorn and watch the fur fly amongst the coalition of the fringes, it's all there:

    - Empowered woman of colour (#HIND00) in the Current Year gadding about NYC
    - Is accosted by A superhumanly priapic lecher of colour (#N3GR00)
    - in BigLaw firm avowing #UsToo
    - HR Lady of Colour (#M3ST20) attempts to hush the complaints
    - Complaints leads not with law or facts, but with a paean to Social Just-Us
    - Sadly, the plaintiff's lawyer is (((predictably))) not Oriental for the hat trick

    The #MeToo movement has shined a light on the misogynistic culture that pervades society – a culture where men sexually harass women and use their power to prey upon subordinates, where women who complain of misconduct are targeted for retaliation and where harassers are ultimately protected. Dentons US LLP (“Dentons”), the largest law firm in the world, has shown that the legal profession – despite being held to ethical rules above and beyond the law which prohibits sexual harassment and discrimination – is rife with the same abuses.
     
    That's the FIRST COUNT of the complaint! For those who may not understand, this is to be a recitation of facts which form the basis in law of the prayer for relief. That's exactly what a complaint is. It's a very particular thing. You can review the remaining counts of the complaint here for a wonderful example of how these things are done. The first count, though, is completely spurious, irrelevant, and immaterial. Defendants must file an answer to a complaint, denying (perhaps clarifying), or affirming each count. How the Hell is one supposed to answer the first count?

    Defendant admits in part and denies in part Defendant admits the #MeToo movement has shined a light on the misogynistic culture that pervades society – a culture where men sexually harass women and use their power to prey upon subordinates, where women who complain of misconduct are targeted for retaliation and where harassers are ultimately protected. Defendant admits to being the largest law firm in the world. Defendant denies that it has shown that the legal profession – despite being held to ethical rules above and beyond the law which prohibits sexual harassment and discrimination – is rife with the same abuses.
     
    Nope.

    Instead we get a mountain of drivel like this:

    Dentons has been recognised by third parties for its initiatives to advance the professional careers of women, including:

    - Working Mother Magazine named Dentons to its Best Law Firms for Women list in 2017 and 2018.
    - Dentons has been named a WILEF Golf Certified Firm for six consecutive years.
    - Dentons has been identified as a 2017 Top Performer by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity
     
    I want to be glacially clear for lay readers about what goes on here and why it matters. Assuming the complaint is true for the sake of argument: Some (married!) pervert did a lot of despicable things (groping and making foul, explicit sexual propositions) to a his immediate subordinate. She complained in all the appropriate manners and was essentially ignored as the harassment continued. She, quite understandably, sued. She is entitled to damages and the employer and her supervisor should be castigated. That's law and justice. The employer's efforts to cheerlead women, be diverse, and all the rest is irrelevant and immaterial to the whole affair – but it is being made a centerpiece of the dispute. The phenomenon matters because it is part of the road toward making such cases not about preventing, stopping, and punishing what anyone agrees is vile behaviour, but about having the employer demonstrate sufficient groveling and kissing of rings apart from anything to do with a particular case or controversy. Its natural conclusion is civil liability for not writing enough checks to Morris Dees.

    Still and all, I must applaud counsel for the lost art of knowing differentiating between dashes and hyphens.

    And the difference between en dashes and em dashes.

    Actually, our 'institutions'--in particular the "corporate media"--are full of people with names like Inkoo Kang lecturing us about our own country.

    "When people of color rail against white people, that’s often shorthand for speaking out against the existing racial structure that serves to keep white people in power."
     
    So....if we replace "white" with "jewish" you'd be cool with that, right?

    So….if we replace “white” with “jewish” you’d be cool with that, right?

    Of course not! Which is why we should do it anyway, starting yesterday, and at the top of our lungs.

    When I hear these Jewish and all-but-Jewish cultural terrorists justify their bile and vitriol with it’s just our powerless way to punch up at the real power in this country, I’m reminded of how quickly I’d be ferried into unemployed homelessness were I to respond in kind minus a pseudonym.

    Rule #1: he who holds the power is feared.

    Rule #2: they who continually address these (purported) power-holders with equal parts vicious mockery and various conjugations of the word “fuck” may well despise you…..but they do not fear you. Not even a little bit.

    Rule #3: go on Twitter and post, under your real name, “Fuck all white people”, “Fuck all Jews” , “Fuck all Asians”, and so forth. Whichever tweet leads directly to immediate and dire changes in your personal circumstances will tell you everything you need to know about power, and who holds it.

    Honestly….a six-year-old could figure this out. (Which is probably why we’re prompted to poison them with puberty-blocking drugs, more and more often.)

    Ah, Jimmy Durante:

    Comment in article that “…Jeong’s tweets were jokes not policy proposals…” shows failure to research Sarah Jeong. Her speech at the law school where she espoused racist hate for white people was not a joke and certainly was related to her goals for social policy. It is also one of many, many examples pulled from the recent history of S.Jeong’s sad life making excuses for herself and loud noise making for personal profit and self-gain. So far, the latter has worked well for her…she now sits on the NYT Ed Board. She should be far better situated to influence social policy from that position. Mission accomplished.
