The LA Times reports that UC campuses have “set records for diversity, as students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups increased to 43.8% of the admitted first-year class. For the third straight year, Latinos were the largest ethnic group at 37.3%, followed by Asian Americans at 35%, white students at 18.6% and Black students at 5.7%.” The article also reports that “About 47% of admitted California first-year students are low-income, and 44% would be the first in their families to earn a bachelor’s degree.” The article also states that the UC system is “admitting a record number of new students for fall 2022 with “85,268 California first-year applicants — a 1.2% increase of 1,045 students over last year.”

It is important to point out that this record for diversity and decline in White enrollment, is after Californians rejected Prop 16. Prop 16, which was unanimously endorsed by UC Regents, would have overturned Prop 209, which was passed in 1998, and banned the consideration of race, ethnicity, or gender in public employee hiring and public university admissions. However, universities have other strategies to boost diversity. For instance increasing enrollment, targeted recruitment strategies, and relying more upon personal admissions essays. In 2021 the UC System immediately ended the use of standardized testing in admissions. Another LA Times article on how the UCs are responding to the Affirmative Action ban reported that “the University of California weighs applicants’ socioeconomic status and whether they’re the first in their family to attend college — race-blind strategies meant to increase diversity.” A Wall Street Journal article on new admissions strategies reports that “Efforts to boost diversity could include widening recruiting efforts, getting more context on applicants’ backgrounds and offering spots to students before they even apply.”

The decline in the number of out of state and foreign students was also noteworthy. Out of state applicants declined by 19% (5,359 students), and international students by 12.2% (2,442 students) .” Governor Newsom and the state legislature provided $82.5 million in funds to enroll more low income in-state students to replace the nonresidents. After the 2008 recession, the UC system was short on revenue and aggressively recruited affluent foreign and out of state students, who pay much higher tuition rates. While international students contribute disproportionately to revenue, there were complaints based upon a 2016 state audit, that foreign students displaced in-state students for admissions. The UC system was able to slash foreign and out of state enrollment, due to the State’s budget surplus. However, this decision seems shortsighted, as we are now entering a severe recession and potentially another State budget crisis.

Overall there is a major policy shift to reduce the number of out of state students from UC Admissions, the state legislature, and Governor Newsom. The LA Times article quotes Dale Leaman, UC Irvine’s executive director of undergraduate admissions, that the campus was “trying to be responsive” to the state’s expectations to decrease nonresidents,” and that “We’re being very careful about overadmitting nonresidents.” The decline in White enrollment could be partially due to the decline in out of state students, who are disproportionately White.

There were concerns that the complaints about foreign students could have xenophobic undertones. Despite California’s reputation as a place welcoming of people from all over the world, there has been a dramatic decline in both foreign immigration and domestic in-migration. The scrapping of non-resident students shows that California is ironically adopting a more insular, regionalist, and parochial mindset of having less of an obligation to “outsiders,” that is strangely fused with equity. For instance implications that upper middle class White students from other states take slots away from California’s “diversity”, or that since California is majority “minority,” there is less of a need to be welcoming to foreigners.

White UC enrollment (brown) vs. eligible White student demographic (grey) from 1998 (affirmative action ban) to 2019

White students admitted as Freshman at UC campuses from 1998 to 2019

The LA Times article reports that “applications and admission offers increased for Latino, Asian American, Black and Native American students and declined among white and Pacific Islander students.” Contrasting enrollment and overall demographic stats from 2019 to this Fall’s enrollment, White enrollment declined from 22% of total UC enrollment (27% of all eligible UC applicants) in 2019 to 18.6% of Freshman admissions in 2022, Latino enrollment grew from 34% of UC enrollment (45% of eligible UC applicants) in 2019 to 37.3% of Freshman admissions in 2022, and Black enrollment grew from 4.8% (4.2% of eligible UC applicants) in 2019 to 5.7%. in 2022. While Asian enrollment went from 36% (20% of eligible applicants) in 2019 to 35% in 2022, overall enrollment numbers still increased. In summary Asians are the most overrepresented, Whites underrepresented, Latinos still underrepresented but moving closer to equitable representation, and Blacks are now slightly overrepresented.

Whites are now the third largest demographic after Latinos and Asians in the UC System. This underrepresentation is notable, even factoring in the decline in out of state students, and that the State’s overall White population is older. Also White performance on SAT and GPA scores are above the State’s average. I don’t think demographics are the main reason for that much of a shift in such a short period of time. Some White students could be writing something else on applications (eg. Native American or Hispanic), but probably not enough to cause a dramatic shift.

Since the racial reckoning of 2020, there have been reports that a greater number of White university applicants are being rejected. This spring Peachy Keenan, contributor to the Claremont Institute’s American Mind, reported that “Am hearing that Brentwood, prestigious private school in LA, is in chaos after almost zero white seniors got into to UC schools. When friends went there in happier times, UC acceptance was like 80%. This year, bipoc kids only. Parents who spent $60K/yr+ for 6 years little upset.” It seems that a lot of affluent White Californians are abandoning UCs for California’s private universities or out of state Universities, the later which could have long term demographics implications.

The conservative blog, Revolver News, has a post provocatively titled , Colleges are Ethnically Cleansing America’s White Kulaks, proclaiming that “At one elite school after another, ordinary white Americans are being treated as academia’s “undesirables” and are slowly being cleansed out.” The Revolver News piece references a Twitter thread on observations about demographic and political changes at elite universities by Daniel Schmidt, a University Chicago Freshman, who has been featured on Fox News. Daniel Schmidt stated that at the prestigious University of Chicago, “I have not met a single middle-class white kid. By white, I mean of European ancestry. Every white kid I know is either low-income, like myself, or extremely wealthy,” and that “It seems it’s virtually impossible to get into an elite university as a middle-class white kid unless the kid has an extremely prodigal ability. The standards for all other economic classes are way lower.”

However, the anti-affirmative action movement has been primarily focused on anti-Asian discrimination, which is less politically incorrect to discuss. In 2018, an Asian American law professor filed a lawsuit against the UC System, alleging violations of the affirmative action ban by discriminating against Asian Americans in admissions. While Asian UC enrollment has increased, the Asian proportions at the Ivies, including Harvard, have remained flat. This is despite the upward mobility of Asian Americans and the Asian share of the US college aged population doubling over the past 30 years. Ivies such as Harvard have been accused of anti-Asian racism by Asian American activists and conservatives. However, some more woke Asian American figures have accused conservatives of disingenuously exploiting Asian American concerns about affirmative action, and virtue signaling to deflect from allegations of White Supremacy. Regardless, Asian Americans were at the forefront in defeating California’s Prop 16, which Whites also voted against, with Latinos roughly split, and only Blacks supporting the measure by overwhelming margins.

When California banned affirmative action in 1998, White enrollment had a brief bump and then actually declined dramatically while Asian enrollment grew substantially. The affirmative action ban seems to have benefited Asians tremendously but ironically the impact on Whites seems to have been neutral to negative. There is a perception that academic meritocracy benefits Asians the most while affirmative action benefits BIPOC the most. This dichotomy often ignores Whites who perform academically in between BIPOC and Asians, and often get squeezed out from both ends, equity and meritocracy. Since Asians outperform other groups academically, including Whites, there is an anti-meritocracy/equity angle of punishing Asians for their academic success. However, CRT type arguments are more antagonistic towards Whites, than Asians, and view Whites as the most privileged group. Both political sides miss or refuse to acknowledge the distinction between punishing Asians for their success and Whites for past sins.

With quota based affirmative action, both Whites and Asians are penalized. However, the use of personal admissions essays and selective recruitment strategies grants admissions greater discretion than with quotas. Woke admissions officers might view Whites as more privileged than Asians. There is a delicate balancing act between racial equity concerns focused on BIPOC and concerns from Asian American advocacy groups about discrimination. This balancing act, which likely influences admissions, may have played some role in sacrificing White enrollment. Blatant discrimination is difficult to prove but the question is how much discretion admissions officers have and how much oversight there is. The new status quo might be worse than affirmative action quotas, due to less transparency.

Woke politics has been described as asymmetrical multiculturalism, such as how the LA Times article uncaps White while capping all other groups. Another example is how White student unions are beyond the pale, and associated with the most vile bigotry. The basic equity argument to justify affirmative action says that Whites, and Asians to a degree, should not be overrepresented and BIPOC (Black and Latino) should not be underrepresented. However, even saying that Whites should be represented based upon equitable proportions is controversial. The basis for asymmetrical multiculturalism is America’s majoritarian framework. However, under a pluralist multiculturalist framework, White social organizations appear rather benign. Whites have to be included for multiculturalism to work and under symmetrical multiculturalism, all groups are just treated as minorities, which is a much healthier model for somewhere as diverse as California.

The question is whether some version of affirmative action is needed for a multicultural society to maintain balance. For instance Singapore’s affirmative action type policies that seek to balance meritocracy with fair representation of minorities. However, Singapore’s model is different from America’s equity politics, that relies upon a victim vs. oppressor dialect. Singapore’s model is rather about maintaining demographic balance and social harmony between groups. I have reservations about ethnic quotas, but Singapore’s model would be a vast improvement over the status quo, especially in California.

Examples of this model of affirmative action in practice are a balanced quota system to ensure that no demographic group gets greatly underrepresented or where each group is entitled to a certain number of campuses where they are a plurality. California already sort of has this, where Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is the only majority White pubic university in California, UC Irvine has a reputation for high Asian enrollment, and UC Merced was created more recently to help increase Latino enrollment. There is also some degree of geographic based affirmative action such as admitting students with the top GPA from each school rather than the top GPAs in the entire State. Geographic affirmative action could be a compromise between Whites and BIPOC but there are concerns that it could discriminate against Asians due to geographic concentrations.

There are major flaws in both relying upon SATs for enrollment and personal admissions essays, which allow for too much subjective bias in enrollment. I would much rather see more specialization in education, with the goal of helping each student find their niche. For instance if a student does poorly on the SAT for math but excels in other fields, they should be admitted to study in their particular field of expertise. I would also support scrapping bloated educational bureaucracies and taxing endowments to fund vouchers for private colleges and grants for independent studies and research. Overall specialization would be much less divisive than any race focused policies.

The Supreme Court could soon outlaw affirmative action. Even though I voted against prop 16 to reinstate affirmative action, a total nationwide ban could create more scenarios where there is greater discretion on behalf of admissions. Overall the anti-affirmative action movement has its shortcomings. Maybe White conservative should re-consider their opposition to affirmative action on meritocratic grounds and instead lobby for fair representation. In places where Whites are a minority, such as California, it makes sense for Whites to embrace multiculturalism.

    The solution is to destroy the current public education system at every level. It is too corrupt to ‘reform’. The movement to fund students rather than public school systems at the primary level is a good example. This needs to be continued. Teachers have been indoctrinated by these colleges to such a degree that the only solution is to offer enough competition that some of them may come to their senses.

  8. In my experience the differences between racial groups are profound but hard to quantify objectively,leading to the conclusion that most efforts by universities to screen students in any meaningful way are going to fail.

    Humans are complicated but the following “stereotypes” seem to have some validity:

    Asians tend to excel in math and science but lack verbal ability,particularly in abstract verbal
    reasoning.Creativity,social skills and leadership qualities are frequently diminished.

    Black Africans(minus white or Asian admixture) are likely to have poor cognitive skills but many
    have outstanding creativity,most frequently in art,music and literature.

    Caucasians,including historical groups from Iceland to India,are heterogeneous in their level of
    intelligence and equally diverse within each group,making it impossible to draw conclusions
    while recognizing their enormous achievements in every field.

    Mestizos or “New World Hispanics” are truly a”mixed bag” and generalizations about hybrids
    are logically impossible.

    UC is corrupt and badlly politicized. TRUE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY comes in the form of a standardized entrance exam, a basic expectation of a federally accredited system of higher learning that expects a minimum standard of knowledge and understanding of foundational subject matter to merit entrance into a college oor university system that has minimum time and resources to spread out over the number of students. They can and should have prep school to help students get ready to perform at he college level but drop the wokism, either you can pass the entrance exam or you cannot, if you cannot, try again next year after you spend time focusing on the given subject matter indicated in the footnotes accompanying your failing grade.

    Why California’s Affirmative Action Ban May Have Harmed White Enrollment

    Affirmative action? California went from being over 90% White to less than 40%. It wasn’t affirmative action that harmed White enrolment, it was the Reconquista that triggered White flight.

  23. As with primary education, vaxx mandates killed enrollment for many of the smart ones.

  24. If it were not so tragic, it would be sort of amusing: the US is actively destroying what is left of its higher education system.

    Until the 1990s at Ivy League schools, the overall quality of graduate programs in more or less serious disciplines (not including business administration and marketing) was at least at the same level as those of the great European universities.

    It was a time when European students, thanks to vastly superior high schools and superior undergraduate programs were consistently of a higher academic level than US students. After getting an MA, most US students were still behind in both specific and generic knowledge.

    That situation was not allowed to last.

    By inducing (convincing, forcing or a combination of these methods) the EU to impose higher education system along US line (Bologna Declaration, 1999), the US has managed to destroy university education in the EU.

    Today, the EU labor market is flooded with young nitwits with BA degrees. Unable to think for themselves, without the elaborate frame of reference, nurtured by a solid education, that their parents would have acquired, most recent EU “university graduates” are half-trained circus monkeys at best.

    Indeed, the value of a bachelor’s and even a master’s degree in any discipline has become highly questionable. In this respect the EU has descended to US standards.

    After the great Covid-show, any high school graduate aspiring to become a physician should seriously consider his decision. Today, a good physician is just a licensed drug pusher for big pharma. Law school perhaps? The judicial system in the EU is even more corrupt and sordid that its US counterpart. Most other fields of study have become prisoners to political correctness, woke-ism, CRT, and LGBT-whatever lunacy, so it would be better for one’s mental health and self-respect to stay out of college altogether.

    The few who still would want to get a good old-fashioned, proper university education better learn Spanish or Russian and try to go to a smaller regional university in Latin America or Russia.

    California is where all the trends originate inside the US. The US then exports the madness elsewhere. It would appear that both the US and Europe are purposely trying to destroy their countries.

    It’s becoming more well known that many college degrees don’t lead to good paying jobs. It’s also becoming more well known that many leftist college professors are hostile to white heterosexual males. This is leading intelligent white heterosexual males to voluntarily avoid even enrolling in these universities and this may be part of the reason white enrollments are dropping.

    Colleges will have to lay off employees if enrollment drops so, in order to prevent that, they lower standards to let in more marginal black and Hispanic students. College degrees only have value, though, because in the past they were an indicator of positive attributes. When passed out to anyone, they lose whatever value they previously had.

    Shades of the famous fight over public housing in the Tower Hamlets ward of London. Traditionally public housing in Britain took a position that one of it’s purposes was to shelter local communities from economic and social dislocation (Particularly since extended family and community networks are so valuable to struggling people) so it tended to give priority to people with a ‘substantial connection to the area’ over others. When Bengals began to move into the area they deemed this wrong and racist since it undermined more of their kind getting in as easily.

    The policy was removed and Tower Hamlets become demographically inundated by Bengalis in it’s public housing. A generation later when the Bengals could benefit from the logic of having ‘substantial connection to the area’ they voted to reinstate it since it now benefited them.

    And today like clockwork you can bet that the very last constituency to call in during any UK general election will be Tower Hamlets. Often deep into the night due to the local Bengali clique challenging every ballot box count and engaging in fraud.

  42. The most successful entrepreneurs, like Bill Gates, dropped out of college because they knew that their own abilities exceeded anything that the professors could teach them.
    As the prestigious colleges admit more and more less prestigious students, the end result will be less prestigious graduates and a gradual destruction of the college’s academic reputation.
    Even now, anyone smart enough to succeed in STEM is better off going to a private academy which focuses on something like computer programming which will give a much greater and faster return on tuition paid, then going to a prestigious college.
    Success is measured by productivity, not degree of education.

    .. they were hooting and hollering to show they are having a good time
    ..gaping at their cell phones and even texting each other right there at the table
    ..a silly giddy he say she say conversation where the word “like” was used most of the time

    So I was like who would like hire these people when they like graduated in like underwater basket weaving and like ancient Babylonian pottery manufacture.

    The Universities are churning out air heads. When these kids enter the job market they will find few people will tolerate their fragility and immaturity.

    “Many [black Africans] have outstanding creativity, most frequently in art, music and literature.”

    I agree ! Shopping the other day, the store piped in some creative black music that went like this:

    “Inside outside (boom boom boom)
    “Inside outside (boom boom boom)
    “Inside outside (boom boom boom)

    Chorus by a squeaky female : Yeah yeah, Uh Oh Yeah Yeah (for about a minute)

    Then a 16 bar instrumental interlude with only bass guitar and bass drum. Then….exploding vocals.

    “Inside outside (boom boom boom)
    “Inside outside (boom boom boom)
    “Inside outside (boom boom boom)

    Chorus by a squeaky female in a high octave Soprano:
    Yeah yeah, Uh Oh Yeah Yeah Baby Baaaabby
    I want you I want you Yeah Yeah Uh huh Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeahhhhhhh
    Inside Baby Outside Inside Baby Baby Baaaaaaaaaaaaby”

    I really enjoyed the song and they even extended it to 4 minutes or so increasing our listening pleasure. Who can dispute this is the height of black art, creativity, innovative lyrics and masterful arrangement.

    Well, white people have this weird idea that they should be allowed into America so they can vote. But the native American will become an oppressed and dwindling nation within the United States.
    What you say sounds good. But have you ever thought about how other people feel.
    White people did indeed slaughter most of the Native Americans (whose race is closely related to East Asians) and try to revise history to make it look like they didn’t. In the early days of the United States, for example, the founding fathers of Freemasonry offered Indian scalps as rewards.
    As for the rest, I need not say much about the Vietnam War. The Jewish-controlled military-industrial complex hurts others and white Americans themselves.
    You have to admit that white Americans did commit some serious mass murder. Just because no one’s asking you to atone, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
    Another reason is the fact that a school must recruit students on the basis of test scores and overall social and managerial qualities, rather than ethnicity.
    If you deny what I’m saying, I hope you’re surrounded by blacks, Jews, Mexicans every day of your life.

    There have been widespread claims that despite Prop. 209 the University of California has quietly restored Affirmative Action, including by apparently knowledgeable people. But I’m quite skeptical.

    I think the best metric for measuring this likelihood is the percentage of black students enrolled at the elite campuses of Berkeley and UCLA, and this website provides the entire historical trajectory of their demographics:

    https://www.unz.com/enrollments/?r&ID=110635&Institution=University+of+California-Berkeley

    https://www.unz.com/enrollments/?r&ID=110662&Institution=University+of+California-Los+Angeles

    Note that Berkeley’s black percentage has been 2% or less and UCLA is just over 3%.

    Now let’s compare this with Harvard, which clearly practices AA. It’s over 12% black:

    https://www.unz.com/enrollments/?r&ID=166027&Institution=Harvard+University

    At the other end of the scale, Caltech is widely regarded as the most resolutely meritocratic college, with the least racial AA. And it’s black enrollment is also about 2%:

    https://www.unz.com/enrollments/?r&ID=110404&Institution=California+Institute+of+Technology

    If Berkeley has about the same black percentage as Caltech, its AA in admissions must be extremely mild.

    Moreover, the demographic changes presented in this article would have been much more meaningful if they had been normalized relative to the changing demographics of HS seniors in California.

    For example, the article notes that between 1998 and 2019, the white percentage at UCLA and Berkeley dropped by almost a quarter. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the percentage of white HS seniors in California also dropped by roughly a quarter during that same period.

    Yes, so far Caltech has avoided being attacked as racist, but soon some liberal at the L.A.

    The best metric to measure whether or not Prop 209 was violated is not how the percentage of blacks was lowered but how the percentage of Asians was raised and percentage of Whites was lowered.

    It’s not about blacks or other races at all. It’s about restoring 14th equal amendment rights to Whites. Which will never happen of course.

    I was very active in Prop 209. Gave it a lot of money. My money not joint property money. I’m convinced Prop 209 was a big scam. Because there was no enforcement built in.

    All the federal and state affirmative action laws had federal EEOC or state FEPCs built in and ready to go.

    No enforcement of Prop 209. And of course by 1998 all the Whites who worked for state FEMP had retired. Plus they were all anti White liberals who had refused complaints of discrimination by Whites for 40 years.

    I doubt Prop 209 resulted in one White person getting a state, city or county job or state university college admission based on merit. As Prop 209 mandated.

    It was as useless as the January 6 2020 demonstration in DC

    It’s really not just the laws and government agency regulations that discriminate against Whites. It’s the people who work in those agencies who discriminate against Whites.

    I’m friendly with a driving instructor He’s been doing it for more than 20 years. He has observed and believes that the driving test instructors purposely fail Whites. They are neutral about blacks and Hispanics. And pass Asians who really shouldn’t be taking the driving test after the minimum 6 hours of driving instruction.

    His driving school is located near UCLA. Every year Chinese UCLA students just off the plane from the People’s Republic who have never driven or even been in a car sign up for instruction. And they always pass after the minimum 6 hours of driving.

    He’s not a KKK neo Nazi evil WASP like me. He’s an immigrant a Persian Jew. An unbiased objective observer of one small aspect of the state of California’s official discrimination against Whites and favoritism of Asians.

    He and other driving instructors are in constant communication about which DMV offices and testers are least discriminatory against Whites. He’s very vocal about it.

    I too suspect that the 18 percent White UC freshmen is inline with the percentage of White 18 to 24 year olds in California. I checked the census and other California population sites. Not very clear.

    One surprising thing is 2 categories of White. White 71 or 62 percent depending on which site. And then 36 percent non Hispanic White. Strange And when I couldn’t find the percentage of 18 to 24 year old Whites I stopped looking. Plus more Whites go to private schools than non Whites.

    It would take Steve Sailor quality digging in the statistics to discover if the 18 percent of Whites admitted to UC campuses is under represented over represented or in sync with their representation in the general population. I can’t do that . But I agree that 18 percent White is probably more or less in sync with the percentage of college age Whites in the Ca. Population.

    Not to be ignored is the fact that many Whites check black or Hispanic on the application depending on the last name. Even the Armenians and Persians are doing it. Despite that their surnames are neither Hispanic nor the usual W European surname of American blacks.

    It’s nice that Cal Tech is still using merit admissions. But that doesn’t help the normal or bright normal IQ Whites does it?

    I’m very knowledgeable about affirmative action. It’s been a major interest of mine since Griggs vs Duke Power., I could relate some astonishing appalling affirmative action discrimination against Whites. But what’s the use? AA has been around since March 6 1961 executive order 10925.

Not tiny little dorm rooms for 2 or 3 students. But decent size like studio apartment size rooms. With nice practical furniture big desks shelves for books etc.

    And build around 1930 in that lovely 1920s California Spanish style. High ceilings tile floors Beautiful Spanish style rather than housing project meager ness of every college dorm built in the last 60 years. Nice dining room library computer rooms big closets.

    And the dorm was closed down. And converted to administrative offices. Offices for the feminazis gays trans black Hispanic Asian Muslim and other weirdo activists. Except for the janitors, every person working in that building is getting a big paycheck for nothing that applies to teaching. Just liberaling about. Major purpose seems to be hate America Hate Whites Hate heterosexuals the usual.

    There’s Campbell Hall and other spaces where radicals plot. But converting Mira Hershey from a grad student dorm to an alternate to welfare office for persons of color gays trans and other useless parasites is ……. what can I say? It’s what America considers of utmost importance.

    The grad students who are no longer accommodated in Mira Hershey Hall now have to incur more student debt to live off campus in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the country.,

    Just one example of why college costs so much. It’s just an expansion of all those do nothing government alternative to welfare jobs for women minorities and gay trans etc weirdos.

    The problem is that their accents are so thick that the students cannot understand what they are saying. Problem has been around a long time. In the early 1980s students at prestige University of Illinois Champagne Urbana sued the university because the foreign teachers spoke so little English.

    Have you heard of TOEFL test of English as a foreign language? Every foreign student and college TA or instructor has to pass it. To ensure that they can read write speak and understand English.

    BUT

    Those tests are administered in India China other corrupt countries. So who knows who actually took and passed the test?

    Talk to any college teacher about the foreign students who don’t know English yet who were admitted because they or actually the person they hired passed the TOEFL. Applies to the TAs instructors assistant professors as well.

    There are thousands of professional test takers in the non White countries from which so many college teachers are hired. Plenty in America too.

    The naïveté and ignorance of the Men of UNZ never ceases to amaze. Never heard of hiring someone to take a test? Anyone who has gone to college in the last 40 years knows about the numerous TAs, instructors and even professors who cannot make themselves understood in English.

    The most striking thing about all of this “celebration” over meeting all of these “Diversity” goals/objectives/guidelines is this: It is only possible in a Country/Culture created by, GASP!! White Males! No Country/Culture created by a non White Race would tolerate an invasion by a different Race of Peoples. Not to mention giving them huge Cash subsidies–among other forms of preferential treatment. No other Race of People are stupid enough to purposely crash their own Race.

    Your post was not about the national security establishment. It was about local town police. Not even county sheriffs or state police. Even towns in Maine New Hampshire Idaho Montana recruit Hispanics and blacks from a thousand miles sway. And the agricultural states like Iowa Nebraska Idaho Wyoming etc etc have their own natural born Hispanic American citizen police recruits. Natural born American citizen children and grandchildren of the gazillions of illegal alien farm workers the farmers imported.

    National security upper level, like the Supreme Court, Biden’s cabinet and congress is much more catholic and Jewish than Protestant. The FBI, DOJ etc lower levels tend to be Catholic and Mormon.

    Even 10o years ago police and firemen were more Irish than WASP. Especially firemen. In fact, before there were city fire departments supported by taxes the fire companies were private businesses working with the insurance companies. And many were Irish. Especially in the big cities.

    The ignorance of the Men of UNZ is astonishing.

    Especially ignorance about what year this is. A casual reader has to assume that the average age of the UNZ commenters is about 96 years old. And that they think it’s still 1952.

    After WW2 the wealthiest 5 percent of WASPS united with communist Jews to discriminate against all Catholics and 95 percent of the wasps. And to destroy the USA public school system established by wasps through school
    integration , bussing, moron black teachers and administrators and vicious black students., Wasp children were the majority in the wasp created public schools. Catholics had their own not integrated private school system. Jews were concentrated in a few cities.

    And the 5 percent elite wasps gleefully joined with communist Jews to destroy their own school system.

    Repeat it’s 2022 not 1922

    The two most important points are; first only about 20 percent of jobs require a BA or BS degree. Second STEM degrees are useless for White men.

    Because the employers won’t hire White men. So men STEM grads end up teaching high school math if they are lucky. All the while being bullied and harassed by the vicious black women teachers principals vice principals and other administrators. Other White man STEM grads become consultants and temps.

    There’s a major difference between a White conservative and a White person who is against affirmative discrimination. Who is also known as a race conscious White, a White advocate or White nationalist.

    Anti affirmative action is not conservative.

    Conservatives have always accepted affirmative action. Even if it means their own children are denied employment government contracting big business contracting business loans every means of making a living because they are White.

    Go ahead conservatives. Be against abortion tattoos unnatural hair colors divorce living wages even minimum wage vulgar entertainment.

    But don’t say or do a thing about affirmative action discrimination against Whites. It’s acceptable for a conservative to be against illegal immigration. But conservatives applaud replacement of White accountants Drs nurses coders engineers dentists veterinarians and other professionals by Chinese and Indians.

    Conservatives are the running dogs of the billionaire elites who want to replace White professionals with cheaper non White professionals.

    Do you know why upper class Indians are moving to America? Because in India there is very rigorous affirmative action preference favoring the former lower castes Dalits and others. So the upper castes come to America because they were awarded non White affirmative action aristocratic status in America.,

    And all conservatives care about is abortion tattoos unnatural hair colors and keeping wages down.

    Perfect timing as I was just discussing this subject with my wife, as UCLA graduates, we hoped that one of our sons would be able to attend. However, due to outright discrimination, UCLA is not available to white males of the European Christian type. Although both of my sons graduated summa cum laude from a highly competitive school, they don’t pass the initial screening. All of the UC’s have circumvented the legal prohibitions against brace based discrimination by using proxies which screen whites out. Preference in admissions goes to the following “firsts”: first to go to college, first in country, first to speak English. A full 1/3 of the student population falls in this category. To make matters worse, a full 50% of the student body pays ZERO tuition, nada, nothing, zilch. So, the 50% that pay, overpay by 50%, and thus, college admissions is not only used as a way to discriminate against whites, it’s also used as a mechanism for transferring wealth.

    When I graduated in 1989, UCLA was 77% white, the male/female ratio was close to 50-50. UCLA now is a laughable 18% white, just watch a football game and lol at the empty stands and you’ll see how this new system plays out in terms of the student experience. I recall being there in the days of affirmative action and the argument used to support it was that the student population of “under represented groups” ought to represent b that population’s numbers in society. Hmmmm, where is that concern now? Whites are now a measly 35% of the California population, yet, there’s no concern that whites are under represented? If you pay attention, you will notice that the communists have changed their terminology from “under represented” to “historically under represented” because they know that these groups are now over represented, and well, since white weren’t historically under represented, they can continue to be discriminated against.

    Yet, no one sues? Unfortunately, college admissions is a dynamic process. Once students get into a school, usually out of state, or beneath their qualifications, they and their parents move on. I personally know multiple white male applicants who graduates summa cum laude, get into ZERO UC’s, typically, meaning UCLA, Cal, and UCSB. Someone has to sue, last time I spoke to a public interest law firm they advised that they were just waiting for a plaintiff.

    Prof. Groseclose tried to hold them accountable as the faculty representative to the admissions committee, they denied his request for the raw data. He was eventually run out of the school. The Chancellor Gene Block is determined to completely destroy any vestiges of whiteness at the school. It is happening everywhere, today UCLA, tomorrow Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Ole Miss. If whites are too successful after going to college, we’ll, then, they’re answer is to make it harder for them to go to college. 40,000 high school students left California for out of state schools, at significantly higher costs leading to a greater transfer of wealth. Nothing to see here.

    Yep, that’s the apparent plan. I was at a tip university’s convocation a few years ago, the number of Chinese communist freshmen was over 900, a full 25% of the class, and more than the number of California freshmen.

    The problem is that their accents are so thick that the students cannot understand what they are saying. Problem has been around a long time. In the early 1980s students at prestige University of Illinois Champagne Urbana sued the university because the foreign teachers spoke so little English.

    Have you heard of TOEFL test of English as a foreign language? Every foreign student and college TA or instructor has to pass it. To ensure that they can read write speak and understand English.

    BUT

    Those tests are administered in India China other corrupt countries. So who knows who actually took and passed the test?

    Talk to any college teacher about the foreign students who don’t know English yet who were admitted because they or actually the person they hired passed the TOEFL. Applies to the TAs instructors assistant professors as well.

    There are thousands of professional test takers in the non White countries from which so many college teachers are hired. Plenty in America too.

    The naïveté and ignorance of the Men of UNZ never ceases to amaze. Never heard of hiring someone to take a test? Anyone who has gone to college in the last 40 years knows about the numerous TAs, instructors and even professors who cannot make themselves understood in English.

    I am really sorry. The situation that you have described above is a disaster. I never thought that it was that bad.

    The question is not so much as whether the population of white graduating HS students has declined to 18% of the state, which I submit that it hasn’t dropped that much, but what the percentage of eligible, qualified white HS makes exist versus the number admitted. Admissions at UCLA has carefully crafted their methodology to penalize mostly white students who go highly competitive high schools. Instead of being compared across the board with other applicants, they are instead compared against those applying from their own school. In other words, going to a highly competitive school puts them at a disadvantage relative to their peers at say a low functioning public school, who are compared against their own classmates. With the existence of open enrollment at most districts, and the availability of taking JC courses at many public high schools, there is no reason to pool students by school as opposed to qualifications notwithstanding their high school.

    The UC system does the same thing, guaranteeing a spot a A UC for the top 9%. They cover this claim by granting admission to UC Merced, even when you don’t apply, to the too white qualified students that were excluded from the racist entities known at UCLA and Cal.

    The important question is this : what do you want ? Would excluding the already poor and disadvantaged Black Americans from higher education and giving their tiny 2-3% representation to Whites solve your problem ? You should not forget that America is a multi-ethnic country with the history of Black Americans in the US going back to centuries.

  131. If history has taught us anything, it is that “Multicultural” societies fail, everywhere, every time.
    California is a laboratory. It is a generation ahead in most measures of the rest if the country in terms of crime, and social decay. Their government is simply out of control, driving businesses and productive individuals out with regulations, and onerous taxes.
    Why? Because the political spectrum there has continously shifted to the left for the last 50 years. This is because California has continously become ever more Non-White.
    Its economic and social collapse is in sight.

    Cal Poly has been ruthlessly driving down the number of whites it admits. I suspect the incoming Fall 2022 class is less than 50% white. One thing holding back minorities in the past was that Cal Poly couldn’t compete with the amount of aid the UCs offered but they’ve tacked an $8,000 opportunity fee on out of state attendees and amassed a nice war chest for scholarships. In 2017 they set aside a couple of floors in a dorm for Cal Poly Scholars – a program for low income students. In 2022, they now have a couple of dorm buildings to house them. Cal Poly is set to move from its fast-paced quarter system to a semester system in Fall 2026, another change that will help under-prepared minorities.
