The weirdest aspect of the Open-Borders ideology is the sanctification of illegal aliens. They are holy objects, radiating a sublime, ethereal glow to those sufficiently spiritually refined to see it.

We’re all more or less used to this where blacks are concerned. They dwell on a moral plane far above ours, and any negativity about them i s a form of blasphemy. Tell me about it.

That’s longstanding, though; and as I said, we’re used to it. How did illegal aliens acquire their halos? When did they get put up there with blacks in the GoodWhite pantheon?

Cristina Jiménez Moreta,

Whatever, that’s where they are. Not very surprising, therefore, to see that the latest recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant” is Cristina Jiménez Moreta, 33 years old, an illegal alien from Ecuador.

What did Ms. Moreta do for her $625,000 grant? Yes, you heard that right: $625,000, no strings attached. That’s a lot of chalupas.

So what did the lady do? Quote from the award:

Jiménez … is a co-founder (in 2008) and executive director of United We Dream (UWD), a nationwide network of affiliated groups, organizations, and individuals focused on addressing the needs of immigrant youth and families. Through her leadership acumen and strategic vision, UWD united disparate groups around a common identity that has shifted public perceptions of undocumented youth and focused attention on policy issues that affect them.

[Cristina Jiménez Moreta–Social Justice Organizer | Class of 2017]

In short, another worthless parasite on the American body politic. And a prime candidate for Strategic Deportation. Over to you, Attorney General Jeff Sessions!

Ms. Moreta–I know: the MacArthur site calls her “Jiménez”: I don’t know why and can’t be bothered to find out–Ms. Moreta holds an M.P.A. degree from Baruch College, where I used to teach Visual Basic programming. Perhaps, all unknowing, I passed her in the hallway. Brushed with greatness! Why didn’t I spot that sublime glow? My spirit’s too murky, I guess. What’s an M.P.A., though? It was new to me, I had to look it up. “Master of Public Administration,” says the Baruch website.

There you go; although in these hypersensitive times, shouldn’t it be “Mistress” Or “Mixture”? Or something?

[VDARE.com note: If you don’t know why Ms. Jimenez Moreta uses two last names, see here, but don’t bother emailing Derb to explain—he doesn’t want to know on principle].

News of Ms. Moreta’s “genius grant” stirred my curiosity about these MacArthur awards. The previous one that came to my attention was Ta-Nehisi Coates, two years ago. Coates is the guy who writes about how black he is, and how mean white people are, and blackety-blackety-blackety black. He is at least an American, though, not a foreign scofflaw. How’s it goin’, Ta?

So what are these awards? Well, John D. MacArthur was a business mogul–insurance, real estate–in the middle decades of the last century. He died in 1978, his wife Catherine died in 1981, and there’s a philanthropic foundation named after them and funded from their estates.

MacArthur doesn’t seem to have been much of a Lefty. From what one can glean of his character from bits and pieces on the internet, I’d guess he would have regarded the diversity-obsessed Cultural Marxists of today with baffled scorn.

Concerning his Foundation, he famously told one of the trustees shortly before he died that “I figured out how to make the money. You fellows will have to figure out how to spend it” [`Charitable Patronage` Still Gets Foundation`s Work Done, by Douglas Frantz, Chicago Tribune, July 7, 1985]

Robert Conquest’s Second Law kicked in soon afterwards. That’s the one that says any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right-wing will sooner or later become left-wing.

So here are the MacArthur genius grants for this year. There are twenty-four of them altogether, including Ms. Moreta, whom I’ve already told you about.

Some of them actually sound quite worthy. Immunologist Gabriel Victora, for example, who got his award for, quote: “Investigating acquired, or adaptive, immunity and clarifying the mechanisms by which organisms’ responses to infection are improved.” Good luck to Dr Victora; that sounds like $625,000 well disbursed.

Likewise to mathematician Emmanuel Candès at Stanford, doing useful work, so far as I can judge, in Information Theory. Likewise again to computer scientist Stefan Savage of U. Cal. San Diego, working on internet security and cyber-crime. Good luck to them all. The MacArthur awards are not all gibberish.

Outside the scattering of hard scientists, though, the center of gravity of this year’s 24 awardees is well over in the CultMarx zone. The lone representative from the academic Humanities, historian Derek Peterson [email him] of Ann Arbor, leans left. He is “reshaping our understanding of African colonialism and nationalism in studies that foreground East African intellectual production.”

Academics aside, the awardees are wall-to-wall CultMarx. The word “community” and its plural occur five times on the awardees page. That’s a sure tell.

  • Dawoud BeyDawoud Bey(right) photographer and educator in Chicago is “Using an expansive approach to photography that creates new spaces of engagement within cultural institutions, making them more meaningful to and representative of the communities in which they are situated.”
  • Taylor Mac (a white guy) theater artist in New York, is “Engaging audiences as active participants in works that dramatize the power of theater as a space for building community.”
  • Jesmyn Ward,Jesmyn Ward(right) fiction writer in New Orleans, is “Exploring the enduring bonds of community and familial love among poor African Americans of the rural South against a landscape of circumscribed possibilities and lost potential.”
  • Rami NashashibiRami Nashashibi(right) a “community leader,” also in Chicago, is “Confronting the challenges of poverty and disinvestment in urban communities through a Muslim-led civic engagement effort that bridges race, class, and religion.” And so on. That’s the MacArthur genius grants: an odd mix of parasites, poseurs, white academics working fashionable topics–i.e. anything to do with Africa–and genuine geniuses, or at least serious researchers in worthwhile hard-science fields.

I wonder what old John D. would have made of it.

A final example of the MacArthur’s genius grants, the kind of thing that makes me increasingly feel that the world going off its rocker—some genius music.

The composer and performer here is Tyshawn Sorey, recipient of one of this year’s MacArthur “genius grants.” Concerning Mr. Sorey’s œuvre, the MacArthur website tells us that he is “assimilating and transforming ideas from a broad spectrum of musical idioms and defying distinctions between genres, composition, and improvisation in a singular expression of contemporary music.” Enjoy!

  1. I’m sorry Mr. Derbyshire, I just couldn’t listen to the music all the way through. I don’t have access to the cornucopia of psychoactive drugs that I did as a college student so I just can’t get my mind in the right mental state.

    My lack of access to strong drugs may explain why much of the contemporary world has passed me by. I’m neither afflicted enough to qualify for anti psychotic drugs, not hyper enough for depressants, not in enough pain to get opioids, don’t want to hassle with cocaine and other illegal substances. What’s a fellow to do? I’m too damn normal and can’t seem to break my way out of it. I suppose I could stop eating well, stop cooking my own food and what not, take up smoking, strong drink and give up exercising and buy one of those infinitely refillable one-half gallon big gulps from the local filling station….

    On top of all of the above, I’m white. And male.

    That’s three strikes. I’m out.

    If only I’d been born black, female and impaired. Some people have all the luck.

    I’ve never heard of this “community leader” Rami Nashashibi and I also live in Chicago. What “community” does he lead? The descriptions of what some of these “geniuses” have accomplished sounds like gobbledygook but perhaps a person would have to be a genius themselves to understand all that.

  3. Alfa158 says:

    Living in California I can tell you exactly why immigrants are worshipped:
    1. The idea of individualism and the republican form of government is largely a White American idea, and not nearly as popular outside of it. Immigrants, no matter where they are from, vote overwhelmingly Left once they become citizens, (or vote anyway because they figured out there is no penalty for fraudulent voting). As in California this creates a single party government in which the Left has a hammerlock on power, so immigrants are doing the good work for our rulers.
    2. Open borders means larger markets and the lowest possible wage costs at all skill levels from fruit pickers to surgeons. More dough for the rulers. There is a running joke, that on the evidence, the most powerful lobby in Washington is not the lawyers or pharma, but the toilet paper industry.
    3. The rulers are terrified of, and despise White Gentiles. They have an incentive to reduce them to a minority too small to control the country, and just sufficient in numbers to provide a useful cadre of technicians, tax serfs, and cannon fodder.

    White men are a particularly prickly people to rule. They are genetically individualistic (unlike Asians and Mestizos). They are also extremely capable, even lower class white men can come up with some very clever work arounds for problems (unlike blacks).

    Granted, they're fairly susceptible to propaganda - especially patriotic propaganda - and their lack tribal instincts can be exploited, but those can only work for so long.

    No, if you want absolute control over a population and want that control to last generations, white guys are a problem. Best to marginalize them as much as possible and replace them with more malleable populations.

    And from a certain pundit in 2013:

    In recent decades, European soccer has been corporatized, with importation of South American superstars and fairly successful efforts to suppress hooliganism by making the spectator experience more genteel, like that of American football. Still, unlike American sports, soccer furnishes the skeleton of a system by which nationalist loyalties could potentially be organized.

    This scares European elites. To them, Pakistanis are no challenge. Sure, they’re good at gang-raping little girls, but they’re hardly a threat to the establishment. It’s European men—with their talent for self-organization—who frighten Europe’s ruling class.

  11. Some say Confederate and other White Monuments are being removed or desecrated because of demographic changes. As US becomes less white, white monuments are targeted. To an extent, maybe.

    But consider the following.

    Mao’s army and radicals united China and kicked out all foreigners. So, under Mao, China once again became China for Chinese. And yet, these very Chinese went about destroying so much of Chinese art, architecture, monuments, and etc.

    Also, consider the Anglo-American eradication of Indian Cultures. Indians were killed off by disease or guns and pushed westward and then into Reservations. And yet, Anglo-Americans went about building monuments to these vanquished peoples when the dust settled. There are memorials to Indians erected not by Indians but by white folks who replaced them.

    So, it’s not just about demographics but a state of mind.

    Anglo-Americans could be ruthless buggers but they also had an element of magnanimity, a respect for a worthy foe. David Yeagley expounded on this side of the White Man.

    But such mindset seems to be missing among most non-white groups. Too many Jews feel contempt for gentile cultures and want them utterly defiled. Blacks only respect ugabuga gangsta thug show of powuh and have no appreciation for culture beyond ‘muh dic*’ or ‘muh booty’. Muslims are iconoclastic asses(even though, to their credit, they didn’t destroy all the pagan stuff… until US let loose the ISIS on secular Arab regimes). And Asians are yellow dog teachers pets who can easily go into red guard mode.

    As for whites.. they are not deracinated cucks. The lack of resistance on the part of whites(even in the South) to the toppling of Southern Monuments is downright shocking. Such craven cowardice or, worse, total apathy and indifference to eradication of their own heritage.
    Also, the globalized ‘muh burger and fries’ culture of the new US has severed the roots of most Americans from their history. Their only culture is videogames and Negro-dominated sports and rap music.

    this capitalist money isn’t it?
    well what is the problem then..its disbursement seems absolutely normal to me.
    indeed this is a rather silly issue and obvious issue. why the noise? we should all understand this at a glimpse

    there is nothing in that mix of disbursements that challenges the state of things. what does John Derbyshire expect from the MacArthur foundation..that they would give to good causes that would actually help society?

    no they wont. any social help essential currently would help revolutionize society, advance social evolution in positive ways, put an end to capitalism. for eg: what about a bank to finance and facilitate the development of worker co-ops to protect american jobs?

    such a bank could get going with 5 of those wasteful grants..which is what, roughly 600K by 5.. equals 3 million dollars. with that some training in cooperatives can be set up, with loans to worker groups to buy out closing and moving business and run the project themselves.

    and there are lots of other essential help people need to help themselves..help to get up and get going to helm themselves

    but the foundation wont give for such projects..but rather give money to such as Ta Nehisi Coates, an Uncle Tom write who most black people who know of him dislike intensely because he does not speak to them or for them.

    the Foundation knows what it is doing, well aware of it. they are not stupid. they disburse their money in the exact way they are doing it fully conscious of who gets it and why they are given the money

    Are you kidding? What I've always wished photography would do is create new spaces of engagement within cultural institutions. Thus far, you see, photographers have only managed to either create new spaces of engagement outside cultural institutions, or they've settled for old spaces of engagement within them. But now, thanks to the brilliance of innovators like Dawoud Bey, my hopes are closer to being realized than ever before. Genius like that always deserves kudos - and a healthy share of the loot.

I can appreciate that with art there is a matter of taste, but at least he has prodigious technical skill at a musical instrument. The rest of the lot don't seem to DO anything or have any discernible skill. So of the non scientists the drummer was the least objectionable.

  15. I had the sad experience of suffering through a commencement address from Ms. Jimenez Morata delivered upon the occasion of my son’s graduation from college. She received an honorary degree!!

    She delivered a litany of complaints about her host nation. We apparently haven’t done enough for her illegal parents and siblings. Welfare, free primary/secondary education and college scholarships were insufficient. Her only obvious genius: she’s a world-class whiner and marketer.

    She cannot string together two coherent ideas. So she’s perfect for today’s intersectional progs.

    Since I’m of Latin extraction, married to a legal Latina, I found her wailing beyond insulting. Why did our family follow the rules? My kids would be “Geniuses” had we just flouted laws and societal norms. After all, I was sitting in the goddamn audience at the University (higher ranked than Baruch College) which granted her the fricking honorary degree!

    Instead of busting our asses working, we should’ve become genius complainers or professional Latinos like her. Sadly, more will just follow her example. Hard work is just too hard.

    there is nothing in that mix of disbursements that challenges the state of things. what does John Derbyshire expect from the MacArthur foundation..that they would give to good causes that would actually help society?

    no they wont. any social help essential currently would help revolutionize society, advance social evolution in positive ways, put an end to capitalism. for eg: what about a bank to finance and facilitate the development of worker co-ops to protect american jobs?

    such a bank could get going with 5 of those wasteful grants..which is what, roughly 600K by 5.. equals 3 million dollars. with that some training in cooperatives can be set up, with loans to worker groups to buy out closing and moving business and run the project themselves.

    and there are lots of other essential help people need to help themselves..help to get up and get going to helm themselves

    but the foundation wont give for such projects..but rather give money to such as Ta Nehisi Coates, an Uncle Tom write who most black people who know of him dislike intensely because he does not speak to them or for them.

    the Foundation knows what it is doing, well aware of it. they are not stupid. they disburse their money in the exact way they are doing it fully conscious of who gets it and why they are given the money

    You should contact the MacArthur Foundation. Given how you write, you might be a Genius too.

    white guys are a problem for elites who want absolute generational social control..white guys are too clever, they cant be controlled for long ??????????

    did I understand that accurately…white guys???

    but wait just a minute here:
    generations of war vets damaged in wars for the rich sleeping under bridges…and yet the enlist in their majority sacrifice of their bodies for interest not their own

    Opium epidemic, dying like flies every week..and from the official doctors office..loss of life expectancy, now even less than Blacks

    loss of all their jobs, shipped to the Chinese and Indians..and not a pee out of them…rather peeps out of them but they do not follow the white leaders, or any leaders who tell them the truth about that. they try to burn the bringers such news over wood at stakes in the ground

    they pissed at Colin Kaepernick who is almost white biologically but perfectly white behaviorally…who grew up white and who, even by the nature of his protest is quite conservative, well mannered and right
    Kaep is right, on the ball and in keeping with social interest of ‘clever white boys’ after all the cops do kill more whites/Hispanics combined than they do Blacks..and walk away just as well, Scott free.

    I can go on and on and on and on, on the absolute, 300 years old stupidity of ‘clever white boys’ who automatically live and act against their own social interest to fatten their pockets of their enemy. ‘clever white boy’ do not appear to even know who their enemy is as they give u their lives for that which does not serve them at all.

    when was the last time a ‘clever white boy’ was able to put a clean, nutritious forkful of food in his mouth and belly, hoping that his belly does not bust, like many like him..and others too..and why?
    when was the last time he too drank clean water, or a drink from the shelf of any food store. I just saw a picture of this fine right ‘cleaver white boy’ CWB..who punched a hole in his brain from over-dosing on energy drinks.

    incredible! the medics had to cut off half his head to save his life…so far. it is still touch and go with him. and his wife just had their baby while he had been working hard, and long, no doubt to hoard cash to take care of his expanding family. and in working so long and hard he thought he was doing himself a nutritious favor by using energy drinks. but like everything made these days the drinks even as they are sold as healthful, are in fact toxic.

    but how come the CWB’s are not up in arms over the food, water, drinks, air pollution, defective products that track you everywhere you go..surveillance? how come the CWB’s are not overthrowing the surveillance state, which is the enemy of the CWB too..the CWB foremost.

    there was a real, honest to goodness CWB by the name of Theodore W Allen, a true human, who researched and wrote a book called “The Invention of the White Race..which proves that CWB, instead of being clever white boys are in fact suicidal.

    its simple: the enemy of the clever white boy- CWB is the capitalist, who has ripped off the lives of ALL ordinary people, including CWB..and who operates at the stage of this day to protect in perpetuity his achievements in perpetuity. this day of advanced technology has made ordinary people redundant..more so CWB who had most of everything. so it is he who loses most of everything and is most fully under attack by the capitalist..which is the point of this article and thread is it not?

    the CWB resentment is palpable here screaming about MacArthur grants tho those whom CWB bitterly see as unworthy. but the power in the society is owned by and exercised by the capitalist and who is he if not white Anglo and Jewish?

    and why are white Anglos and Jews acting so comprehensively against CWB..why have they so acted for so long in that same way?

    interesting isnt it?

    the CWB should be clever enough to work that out not so? but they have not.. so they are not clever at all are they?

    somebody wrote somewhere..I don’t readily recall where..that the wages of racism is death. this is what that coiner had in mind, that black and white ordinary people had the same social interest but that white racism prevents realism of that fact on the part of whites and eliminates any possibility of the social combination that can defeat the capitalist

    so the result of racism is death for both groups who comprised one social class..working people. and death is the exact result I see among CWB/Blacks on this day and time as the ravages of capitalist manipulation to save their class domination destroys CWB plus everywhere, replaces them with easily controlled but rabid, savage immigrants, bombed out of their skulls, hungry and terrified in their home places and of no challenge to the capitalist in Europe and America..and who can be easily wiped away if need be at any time

    if CWB were in fact clever he would have long seen who he is/they are… and where his best interests lie, in combination with others, enslaved like himself, to fight the capitalist and win..like white boys used to do back in the day, before ‘the invention of the white race’ the white boys were clever then..but they have not been for a very, very, very long time now

    CWB, circa 2017, in fact are in total social disarray and losing the battle for existence

    OT, Philly.com is reporting on a “Black & Brown Founders” conference that got testy.

    The article and the youtube video are not that interesting but they are conspicuous examples of how socially appropriate it is for blacks to hate whites, especially whites that condescend to help blacks.

    Although Mr Smith has accepted countless invitations to race-hustle the tech industry, he says it’s exhorting to talk about race in tech all the time, for whites don’t hate themselves like he thinks they should. It’s downright dehumanizing, he “feels like he’s on the menu.” But he’s glad that the white lady feels uncomfortable too because he feels that way “every time he walks out of the house.” Then he returns to talking about race in tech.

    The expression on Mr Smith’s face, the totally unmerited air of superiority, is the face of emancipated-from-responsibility brown people looking at whites. Violently eager to destroy what they are hopeless to attain.

    I presume Derb posted this to encourage hooting and laughing fits – well, sorry, John, but Mr Sorey’s an excellent drummer, and apparently a thoughtful individual (to go by his comments at the end of the clip).

    No, I don’t much care for the piano accompaniment, but then a lot of my favorite music didn’t really speak to me the first time I listened to it. In any case, he’s an actual musician – in this age of runamuck “file sharing” (ie, legal theft), to say nothing of computer-assembled pop music, the odds are stacked higher against such folks than they ordinarily might be, so I can’t help but root for them. Unlike a lot of the sorts of phonies society celebrates these days, accomplished musicians have to have at least a few head of cattle to go with the hat.

  33. The downside to awarding these fat prizes to such mediocrities is obvious. One of these days, one of them will be arrested and charged with a serious crime, bringing shame and disrepute on the foundation and all that it represents. A risk that, say, the Nobel science committee doesn’t face.

    It would be interesting as well to see what they do with their 600 large. I bet many of them will be back hustling for white guilt bucks in very short order, ’cause thrift and future time orientation is, well, so white privilegist.

    well I will tell you what happened to me. I am diabetic and my medics insist I take their prescription. I had stopped because the prescription game me hypoglycemia...low blood sugar. low blood sugar is tears..especially if one is unaware of ones condition.
    my medic tells me my sugar is high and I must take the medication, over time so it can have the proper effect. they do not appear to be bothered by the low blood sugar it causes.
    I took the medication last night and by this morning I was hypoglycemic. and it went on for most of the day as the medication made short work of the food I ate as I went along.
    as I typed that thing I posted I had to go out as well so my time was a little short. I could not be on top of anything. luckily I did not have to drive. I thought I was fine but I wasn't

    Markin LA I am capable enuff. I am not concerned about capitals at all, except hen and where they are essential. I like to do all sorts of things with language and spelling. I don't really care about language rules, accurate spelling and so on, to any significant extent. for me language is for communication and once the purpose of any communication is achieved I am satisfied.

    language lives and grows because the real rule is efficacy...finding ways, words, sentences, to communicate effectively. I like to spell phonetically. at times that is way more effective than accurate spelling.
    I will not use capitals ordinarily. that is for when essential or required for something I need. like right here when I started the sentence the machine capitalized I automatically..so there is a capital for you at the start of a sentence. where it does not occur automatically there will be no capitalization.

    but sorry about that post earlier today. I was on my nose so to speak and not aware of it. but the post was/is still legible enuff to work with.

    I got to solve my diabetic problem. the Doctors are not helpful. I am not inclined to use the prescriptions at all, and I will stop. the medication is literally driving me crazy. there must be other ways to deal with this

    I'm sorry Mr. Derbyshire, I just couldn't listen to the music all the way through. I don't have access to the cornucopia of psychoactive drugs that I did as a college student so I just can't get my mind in the right mental state.

    My lack of access to strong drugs may explain why much of the contemporary world has passed me by. I'm neither afflicted enough to qualify for anti psychotic drugs, not hyper enough for depressants, not in enough pain to get opioids, don't want to hassle with cocaine and other illegal substances. What's a fellow to do? I'm too damn normal and can't seem to break my way out of it. I suppose I could stop eating well, stop cooking my own food and what not, take up smoking, strong drink and give up exercising and buy one of those infinitely refillable one-half gallon big gulps from the local filling station....

    On top of all of the above, I'm white. And male.

    That's three strikes. I'm out.

    If only I'd been born black, female and impaired. Some people have all the luck.

    Living in California I can tell you exactly why immigrants are worshipped:
    1. The idea of individualism and the republican form of government is largely a White American idea, and not nearly as popular outside of it. Immigrants, no matter where they are from, vote overwhelmingly Left once they become citizens, (or vote anyway because they figured out there is no penalty for fraudulent voting). As in California this creates a single party government in which the Left has a hammerlock on power, so immigrants are doing the good work for our rulers.
    2. Open borders means larger markets and the lowest possible wage costs at all skill levels from fruit pickers to surgeons. More dough for the rulers. There is a running joke, that on the evidence, the most powerful lobby in Washington is not the lawyers or pharma, but the toilet paper industry.
    3. The rulers are terrified of, and despise White Gentiles. They have an incentive to reduce them to a minority too small to control the country, and just sufficient in numbers to provide a useful cadre of technicians, tax serfs, and cannon fodder.

    And from a certain pundit in 2013:

    In recent decades, European soccer has been corporatized, with importation of South American superstars and fairly successful efforts to suppress hooliganism by making the spectator experience more genteel, like that of American football. Still, unlike American sports, soccer furnishes the skeleton of a system by which nationalist loyalties could potentially be organized.

    This scares European elites. To them, Pakistanis are no challenge. Sure, they’re good at gang-raping little girls, but they’re hardly a threat to the establishment. It’s European men—with their talent for self-organization—who frighten Europe’s ruling class.

    1) What’s worse than a giraffe with a sore throat?

    2) Who is Ta-Nehisi Coates’ favorite Italian Renaissance painter?

    3) Why will Ta-Nehisi Coates never fly on a plane?

    Answers:

    1) Ta-Nehisi Coates with chapped lips.

    2) Fra Lippo Lippi.

    3) At low air pressure, his lips could over-inflate and explode.
     
    Is that so bad? It’s not racist. If there were a white guy with lips like Coates’s, I’d make the same jokes about him.

    Is that so bad? It’s not racist.

    No, just humorless, repetitive, and somewhat derivative.

    white guys are a problem for elites who want absolute generational social control..white guys are too clever, they cant be controlled for long ??????????

    did I understand that accurately...white guys???

    but wait just a minute here:
    generations of war vets damaged in wars for the rich sleeping under bridges...and yet the enlist in their majority sacrifice of their bodies for interest not their own

    Opium epidemic, dying like flies every week..and from the official doctors office..loss of life expectancy, now even less than Blacks

    loss of all their jobs, shipped to the Chinese and Indians..and not a pee out of them...rather peeps out of them but they do not follow the white leaders, or any leaders who tell them the truth about that. they try to burn the bringers such news over wood at stakes in the ground

    they pissed at Colin Kaepernick who is almost white biologically but perfectly white behaviorally...who grew up white and who, even by the nature of his protest is quite conservative, well mannered and right
    Kaep is right, on the ball and in keeping with social interest of 'clever white boys' after all the cops do kill more whites/Hispanics combined than they do Blacks..and walk away just as well, Scott free.

    I can go on and on and on and on, on the absolute, 300 years old stupidity of 'clever white boys' who automatically live and act against their own social interest to fatten their pockets of their enemy. 'clever white boy' do not appear to even know who their enemy is as they give u their lives for that which does not serve them at all.

    when was the last time a 'clever white boy' was able to put a clean, nutritious forkful of food in his mouth and belly, hoping that his belly does not bust, like many like him..and others too..and why?
    when was the last time he too drank clean water, or a drink from the shelf of any food store. I just saw a picture of this fine right 'cleaver white boy' CWB..who punched a hole in his brain from over-dosing on energy drinks.

    incredible! the medics had to cut off half his head to save his life...so far. it is still touch and go with him. and his wife just had their baby while he had been working hard, and long, no doubt to hoard cash to take care of his expanding family. and in working so long and hard he thought he was doing himself a nutritious favor by using energy drinks. but like everything made these days the drinks even as they are sold as healthful, are in fact toxic.

    but how come the CWB's are not up in arms over the food, water, drinks, air pollution, defective products that track you everywhere you go..surveillance? how come the CWB's are not overthrowing the surveillance state, which is the enemy of the CWB too..the CWB foremost.

    there was a real, honest to goodness CWB by the name of Theodore W Allen, a true human, who researched and wrote a book called "The Invention of the White Race..which proves that CWB, instead of being clever white boys are in fact suicidal.

    its simple: the enemy of the clever white boy- CWB is the capitalist, who has ripped off the lives of ALL ordinary people, including CWB..and who operates at the stage of this day to protect in perpetuity his achievements in perpetuity. this day of advanced technology has made ordinary people redundant..more so CWB who had most of everything. so it is he who loses most of everything and is most fully under attack by the capitalist..which is the point of this article and thread is it not?

    the CWB resentment is palpable here screaming about MacArthur grants tho those whom CWB bitterly see as unworthy. but the power in the society is owned by and exercised by the capitalist and who is he if not white Anglo and Jewish?

    and why are white Anglos and Jews acting so comprehensively against CWB..why have they so acted for so long in that same way?

    interesting isnt it?

    the CWB should be clever enough to work that out not so? but they have not.. so they are not clever at all are they?

    somebody wrote somewhere..I don't readily recall where..that the wages of racism is death. this is what that coiner had in mind, that black and white ordinary people had the same social interest but that white racism prevents realism of that fact on the part of whites and eliminates any possibility of the social combination that can defeat the capitalist

    so the result of racism is death for both groups who comprised one social class..working people. and death is the exact result I see among CWB/Blacks on this day and time as the ravages of capitalist manipulation to save their class domination destroys CWB plus everywhere, replaces them with easily controlled but rabid, savage immigrants, bombed out of their skulls, hungry and terrified in their home places and of no challenge to the capitalist in Europe and America..and who can be easily wiped away if need be at any time

    if CWB were in fact clever he would have long seen who he is/they are... and where his best interests lie, in combination with others, enslaved like himself, to fight the capitalist and win..like white boys used to do back in the day, before 'the invention of the white race' the white boys were clever then..but they have not been for a very, very, very long time now

    CWB, circa 2017, in fact are in total social disarray and losing the battle for existence

    The downside to awarding these fat prizes to such mediocrities is obvious. One of these days, one of them will be arrested and charged with a serious crime, bringing shame and disrepute on the foundation and all that it represents. A risk that, say, the Nobel science committee doesn't face.

    It would be interesting as well to see what they do with their 600 large. I bet many of them will be back hustling for white guilt bucks in very short order, 'cause thrift and future time orientation is, well, so white privilegist.

    NB: I'm surprised Derb didn't know what an MPA was.

    You’ve got that backwards. Should one of these “geniuses” commit a serious crime, his MacArthur geniushood will bring shame and disrepute on the police department that dared to arrest him.

    @Citizen of a Silly Country

    The rulers are terrified of, and despise White Gentiles.
     
    White men are a particularly prickly people to rule. They are genetically individualistic (unlike Asians and Mestizos). They are also extremely capable, even lower class white men can come up with some very clever work arounds for problems (unlike blacks).

    Granted, they're fairly susceptible to propaganda - especially patriotic propaganda - and their lack tribal instincts can be exploited, but those can only work for so long.

    No, if you want absolute control over a population and want that control to last generations, white guys are a problem. Best to marginalize them as much as possible and replace them with more malleable populations.

    I didn't care for the strange piano music, but that guy seems a helluva drummer. I don't have a great ear for music, but I hope he was playing in some kind of strange time signature (5/4 or something like that).
    Nevertheless, it hardly seems worthy of a "Genius" Grant.

    I'd much rather watch this lovely lady play the drums.
    https://youtu.be/9TJt7jRX-Uk

    I mean, yes, I agree that the drummer doesn’t warrant a “genius” grant. But he is at least a virtuoso musician. I can appreciate that with art there is a matter of taste, but at least he has prodigious technical skill at a musical instrument. The rest of the lot don’t seem to DO anything or have any discernible skill. So of the non scientists the drummer was the least objectionable.

    It simply helps you to get your message across if you make an attempt to stick to basic rules of English grammar. It also helps in organizing whatever it is you are trying to convey. Nobody dislikes the grammar Nazis more than I and I never (except) this time go down that path since I make more than my share of mistakes but I try as best as I can.

    and I am not concerned about all the unfavorable calls on illegal immigrants here. nonsense!

    have we forgotten what america is, how it got started and continued to this point. no american has any cred to call out immigrants on any score.

    and why are there so called illegals all over america? perhaps its the fact that america is terrorizing so many countries around the world the best for the people wherever america is terrorizing is to go to america itself

    if you citizens don't want immigrants it makes sense to kill american imperialism and keep you nation at home

    “reshaping our understanding of African colonialism and nationalism in studies that foreground East African intellectual production.”

    Professor Peterson is also reshaping the word "foreground" into a verb. And what the devil is "intellectual production"? Does that mean "thought"? Then why not say "thought". The sum total of left-wing scholarship is nothing but a jumble of word-salad.

    It is remarkable how lefties (who think that all of us on the right are just greedy bastards) are so materialistic. Everything is just stuff to them: Literature is just "text". Ideas are just "products". People voting for anything other than their pocket books (The Trouble with Kansas!) are deluded fools. People are just "bodies". Women are reduced to "vagina monologues" and "pussy hats".

    Yeah, well you can scoff all you like, but thanks to Derek Peterson’s genius efforts, I, for one, will never look at African colonialism the same way again.

    See, whereas I previously thought African colonialism was____________, now I’m aware that African colonialism was actually_____________________.

    Are you kidding? What I’ve always wished photography would do is create new spaces of engagement within cultural institutions. Thus far, you see, photographers have only managed to either create new spaces of engagement outside cultural institutions, or they’ve settled for old spaces of engagement within them. But now, thanks to the brilliance of innovators like Dawoud Bey, my hopes are closer to being realized than ever before. Genius like that always deserves kudos – and a healthy share of the loot.

    [Ignoring spelling, capitalization, and punctuation considerably increases the likelihood that your comments will be summarily trashed, as does their total lack of connection with the topic.]

    well I will tell you what happened to me. I am diabetic and my medics insist I take their prescription. I had stopped because the prescription game me hypoglycemia...low blood sugar. low blood sugar is tears..especially if one is unaware of ones condition.
    my medic tells me my sugar is high and I must take the medication, over time so it can have the proper effect. they do not appear to be bothered by the low blood sugar it causes.
    I took the medication last night and by this morning I was hypoglycemic. and it went on for most of the day as the medication made short work of the food I ate as I went along.
    as I typed that thing I posted I had to go out as well so my time was a little short. I could not be on top of anything. luckily I did not have to drive. I thought I was fine but I wasn't

    Markin LA I am capable enuff. I am not concerned about capitals at all, except hen and where they are essential. I like to do all sorts of things with language and spelling. I don't really care about language rules, accurate spelling and so on, to any significant extent. for me language is for communication and once the purpose of any communication is achieved I am satisfied.

    language lives and grows because the real rule is efficacy...finding ways, words, sentences, to communicate effectively. I like to spell phonetically. at times that is way more effective than accurate spelling.
    I will not use capitals ordinarily. that is for when essential or required for something I need. like right here when I started the sentence the machine capitalized I automatically..so there is a capital for you at the start of a sentence. where it does not occur automatically there will be no capitalization.

    but sorry about that post earlier today. I was on my nose so to speak and not aware of it. but the post was/is still legible enuff to work with.

    I got to solve my diabetic problem. the Doctors are not helpful. I am not inclined to use the prescriptions at all, and I will stop. the medication is literally driving me crazy. there must be other ways to deal with this
