From the Chicago Sun-Times news section:

State’s new ‘thought leader’ on equity focused on ‘long game:’ Moving Illinois from diversity to equity

Nearly three and a half months after joining Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration, Sekile Nzinga will get to put her theory into practice as head of a new office of equity that the governor plans to create Friday through an executive order.

By Rachel Hinton Jul 30, 2021, 5:00am CDT

Diversity is not the end point, but the starting line.

That’s what Sekile Nzinga believes.

Nearly three and a half months after joining Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration, Nzinga will get to put that theory into practice as head of a new office of equity that the governor plans to create Friday through an executive order.

“I think diversity is our basement, it’s our sub-basement,” Nzinga told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Professional equity demanders just can’t stop thinking about your house.

“Yes, every place in our world is diverse, and so why wouldn’t our agencies be diverse? So that’s the basement — that’s the minimum standard.”

The finish line is equity.

Named the chief diversity officer in April, Nzinga said she changed her title to chief equity officer because her goal is “to get to equity, to move us off the sub-basement, but recognizing that the sub-basement is where we start.”

Yup, when they talk about equity they are thinking about getting their hands on your home equity.

All state employees will be required to participate in annual trainings focused on diversity, equity and inclusion.

Hostile environment harassment.

  4. Citing lack of diversity in media ownership, members of Congress urge FCC to do equity audit

    There’s a three letter word missing….

  5. “Equity audits” and “economic access” is what they demand. Oh, the terms are new – they used to talk “land reform” and “income redistribution”. I’ve been explaining to people for 4 years now that what’s going on is simply Commies crawling out of the woodwork again, a century passed since the “big one”.

    I’m tired of hearing the lame-ass argument that “no, they don’t talk about Kapital vs. Labor and most of these people have never read Marx.” So what? This is what Communists do! The rank and file never gave much of a damn about all that even back in the old Communist revolutions and attempts thereof. They are resentful, and they want your stuff.

    My view has bolstered lately by a couple of things, one a video interview of American-raised Cuban Humberto Fontova (by Stefan Molyneux) who witnessed the Communist evil of Fidel Castro and his executioner Chic Che. There’s one particular part that I’ll discuss in a PS blog post. More familiar to iSteve readers may be this article by an excellent new VDare writer Jack Dalton called The Democrats’ RED DAWN: Yes, It’s A Communist Coup. But There Are Signs Of Hope. (Yep, he WENT there – “RED DAWN”.)

    This is exactly right. Even self-described Marxists don't even read Marx half the time. I had a Marxist expert here tell me that the Russian Revolution had nothing to with Marx because it was anti-democratic. So in all of 2 minutes I dug up Marx's quote where he calls for a dictatorship of the proletariat. Can you believe that? A self-described Marxist expert telling us that he was for democracy.

    Marx says I deserve your stuff cause capitalism and exploitation or something

    That is really how most of them think.

    It's just envy and resentment trying to pass itself off as some grand plan led by intelligent leaders that simply know best.

    Even at their peak (belief wise) in the 1920s/30s most Marxists had really weak arguments. They didn't want to answer any questions about the Soviet Union. They wanted to keep to the script of being on the side of the workers even though they didn't get a vote in the matter.

    When I started working for the military forty years ago I took an oath to defend the Constitution from enemies, both foreign and domestic. As an admirer of the Constitution and the men who wrote it, I thought I was doing something worthwhile in my career.

    If I were just starting my career today, I don't think I would make the same choice. Rather than being supporters of the Constitution and the principles of the Founders, our current leaders are increasingly in opposition to it. The January 6th Washington show trials are an example of the overbearing and vindictive nature of our current leaders. Even more worrying is Biden administration officials telling private entities like Facebook they need to do more to combat Covid misinformation. Every dictator who suppresses freedom of speech and press says they are doing it to combat the spread of misinformation.

    You misunderestimate Professor Doctor Nzinga PhD. As the picture gracing this fawning interview shows, she's* HairFluid.

    While she's in Chicago rather than Tokyo, Nzinga looks like she will reach the podium in the iSteve Content Generator competition. Below the fold, you can see how she racks up a high Difficulty Score with the mandatory and optional Elements in her performance.

    On the web, Nzinga's history appears to begin with her matriculation at Morgan State University in 1989. I'd guess she's a home-gown ADOS rather than an exotic import, as her Igbo/Yoruba-sounding name would suggest. That'd add at least 0.2 points to her Execution Score.

    Finally, I will say I wish I had been able to accomplish more this past year [at Northwestern U.] but alas, I am but a mere mortal. I am deeply grateful for how much grace trans and non-binary folx gave me this year. I recall one instance when I was slated to meet with the MSA LGBTQIA Student Advisory Group right after George Floyd was murdered. Hours before the meeting, it disappeared from my calendar. I reached out to their advisor, Matt Abtahi, and he simply said the students gave me the gift of rest. Words cannot express how touching that gift was for me as a black queer woman to seen by others who also experience a disproportionate amount of trauma from police brutality and state violence. That was diversity, equity and inclusion happening in real time and I will carry that act of love and solidarity with me as I return to the work of supporting trans and non-binary folx here at Northwestern with my full energy.

    The state is a bazallion dollars in debt and they have time for this? As for equity, in the last decade, 200000 blacks have moved out of Chicago and into the suburbs. Not just traditionally black suburbs, but places like Bloomingdale, Naperville, and Schaumburg. Dennis Hastert’s old seat in Congress is now held by a black woman from Naperville.

    It could be an important part. Yes, they hate you. But most likely because you are rich. Race isn't involved, except for the assumption that being white makes you rich.

  35. Yup, when they talk about equity they are thinking about getting their hands on your home equity.

    I say:

    The real estate asset bubble — residential and commercial — created by the monetary extremism of the privately-controlled Federal Reserve Bank must be imploded immediately to produce AFFORDABLE FAMILY FORMATION for the next generation of Americans.

    Three small increases in the federal funds rate will be sufficient to achieve the required implosion in the real estate asset bubble. From zero federal funds rate to 6 percent and from 6 to 10 and from 10 to 20 will instantly implode the real estate asset bubble. Of course you must stop the 40 billion dollars in asset purchases that the Fed is doing now when they electronically conjure up dollars out of thin air to purchase mortgage-backed securities.

    This is the third frigging asset bubble, starting in the 1990s, that the plutocrat- and privately-controlled Federal Reserve Bank has inflated using monetary extremism — low or zero or negative interest rates, asset purchases, quantitative easing, dollar swaps, direct central bank purchases of sovereign and corporate debt, balance sheet ballooning, bailouts…etc. — and enough is enough, DAMMIT!

    I don’t love dumb Jew-baiting (which actually more resembles CRT than Steve’s science-based worldview)–but assuming anybody who embraced CRT had access to publicly available numbers, isn’t it a trivial hop, skip and a jump to “Jews: The Most Priveleged and Insidiously Systemic Prejudicers of All the Whiteness”? Who does keep a handle on that? When and where? Does it fleetingly course through say, a humanities professor’s mind? (To answer my own question, I suspect a CRT journalist or busybody does not even look at numbers–I think the most concrete ones I ever saw were on iSteve in 2008, and they do not read THIS, for sure, if they read much at all.)

    And how closely would absolutely straightforward extension of CRT via publicly available data (Jews have 3x the money, last I saw, so 3x the White Privilege, 3x the Sinister Whiteness) just resemble plain old vulgar folk theories of anti-semitism popular in 1910?

Wall St Journal has been for drug legalization and open borders for decades.

    That's cute. Are you going to defend libertarians and then argue that anti-monopoly laws aren't being enforced?

    Libertarians oppose the existence of all Federal regulatory agencies. They would actually do away with the EPA and let corporations pollute with an honor system. They also think it would be a good idea to legalize crack and let Black felons own fully automatic machine guns.

Perhaps, there’s an opportunity to encourage them to move the goal post to the status of Asians and Jews. By their own logic, shouldn’t all races have equal outcomes? Perhaps, this would fracture the coalition of the non-whites.

    The Google IT department will soon be more than 50% Asian, though Asians are only 5% of the population. Meanwhile, only about 1% of Google IT is Black. Some of those Asians need to be replaced with Blacks for the sake of equity.

I've been explaining to people for 4 years now that what's going on is simply Commies crawling out of the woodwork again, a century passed since the "big one".

    I'm tired of hearing the lame-ass argument that "no, they don't talk about Kapital vs. Labor and most of these people have never read Marx." So what? This is what Communists do! The rank and file never gave much of a damn about all that even back in the old Communist revolutions and attempts thereof. They are resentful, and they want your stuff.

    My view has bolstered lately by a couple of things, one a video interview of American-raised Cuban Humberto Fontova (by Stefan Molyneux) who witnessed the Communist evil of Fidel Castro and his executioner Chic Che. There's one particular part that I'll discuss in a PS blog post. More familiar to iSteve readers may be this article by an excellent new VDare writer Jack Dalton called The Democrats’ RED DAWN: Yes, It’s A Communist Coup. But There Are Signs Of Hope.

    This is exactly right. Even self-described Marxists don’t even read Marx half the time. I had a Marxist expert here tell me that the Russian Revolution had nothing to with Marx because it was anti-democratic. So in all of 2 minutes I dug up Marx’s quote where he calls for a dictatorship of the proletariat. Can you believe that? A self-described Marxist expert telling us that he was for democracy.

    Marx says I deserve your stuff cause capitalism and exploitation or something

    That is really how most of them think.

    It’s just envy and resentment trying to pass itself off as some grand plan led by intelligent leaders that simply know best.

    Even at their peak (belief wise) in the 1920s/30s most Marxists had really weak arguments. They didn’t want to answer any questions about the Soviet Union. They wanted to keep to the script of being on the side of the workers even though they didn’t get a vote in the matter.

    An ex-Cuban named Humberto Fontova has a great interview from Stefan Molyneux in which he gives personal and general history of the Castro/Guevara Commie takeover.

    These people seem to be Internet billionaires, some of whom are monopolists due to Sec. 230 of the FCC Act of 1997.

    That’s cute. Are you going to defend libertarians and then argue that anti-monopoly laws aren’t being enforced?

    Libertarians oppose the existence of all Federal regulatory agencies. They would actually do away with the EPA and let corporations pollute with an honor system. They also think it would be a good idea to legalize crack and let Black felons own fully automatic machine guns.

    I’m tired of hearing the lame-ass argument that “no, they don’t talk about Kapital vs. Labor and most of these people have never read Marx.” So what? This is what Communists do! The rank and file never gave much of a damn about all that even back in the old Communist revolutions and attempts thereof. They are resentful, and they want your stuff.

    This is exactly right. Even self-described Marxists don't even read Marx half the time. I had a Marxist expert here tell me that the Russian Revolution had nothing to with Marx because it was anti-democratic. So in all of 2 minutes I dug up Marx's quote where he calls for a dictatorship of the proletariat. Can you believe that? A self-described Marxist expert telling us that he was for democracy.

    Marx says I deserve your stuff cause capitalism and exploitation or something

    That is really how most of them think.

    It's just envy and resentment trying to pass itself off as some grand plan led by intelligent leaders that simply know best.

    Even at their peak (belief wise) in the 1920s/30s most Marxists had really weak arguments. They didn't want to answer any questions about the Soviet Union. They wanted to keep to the script of being on the side of the workers even though they didn't get a vote in the matter.

    IMO 'schools of education' are simply invalid enterprises properly shut down. You can set up a faculty in professional psychology for those currently on education faculties who have serious skills in tests-and-measurements psychology and you can transfer the genuine scholars to the arts and sciences faculties (I know a historian whose appointment is to the education faculty at one of the state colleges in New York; she belongs on the history faculty).

    Teacher's colleges should have one object, and that's to train teachers. Some methods courses and supervised internships and apprenticeships and that's it. That's courses in methods: lesson planning, testing, evaluation of student submissions, different approaches to teaching each of the 3 R's, &c. Two or three years enrolled, with > 60% of your time taken up with hands-on. Subject instruction should be had in the arts and sciences faculty or in trade-education programs.

    School administrators need to acquire one of three skill sets: in tests-and-measurements psychology, clinical psychology, or public administration. Training programs of this nature can be housed in faculties dedicated to those objects.

    People who want to make a research programme studying schools as institutions can be housed in one of several arts and sciences faculties: history, sociology, political science, or economics. People who want to study learning belong in the psychology department. There is no such thing as 'education' as an autonomous research discipline.

    I don't love dumb Jew-baiting (which actually more resembles CRT than Steve's science-based worldview)--but assuming anybody who embraced CRT had access to publicly available numbers, isn't it a trivial hop, skip and a jump to "Jews: The Most Priveleged and Insidiously Systemic Prejudicers of All the Whiteness"? Who does keep a handle on that? When and where? Does it fleetingly course through say, a humanities professor's mind? (To answer my own question, I suspect a CRT journalist or busybody does not even look at numbers--I think the most concrete ones I ever saw were on iSteve in 2008, and they do not read THIS, for sure, if they read much at all.)

    And how closely would absolutely straightforward extension of CRT via publicly available data (Jews have 3x the money, last I saw, so 3x the White Privilege, 3x the Sinister Whiteness) just resemble plain old vulgar folk theories of anti-semitism popular in 1910?

    While she's in Chicago rather than Tokyo, Nzinga looks like she will reach the podium in the iSteve Content Generator competition. Below the fold, you can see how she racks up a high Difficulty Score with the mandatory and optional Elements in her performance.

    On the web, Nzinga's history appears to begin with her matriculation at Morgan State University in 1989. I'd guess she's a home-gown ADOS rather than an exotic import, as her Igbo/Yoruba-sounding name would suggest. That'd add at least 0.2 points to her Execution Score.

I am deeply grateful for how much grace trans and non-binary folx gave me this year. I recall one instance when I was slated to meet with the MSA LGBTQIA Student Advisory Group right after George Floyd was murdered. Hours before the meeting, it disappeared from my calendar. I reached out to their advisor, Matt Abtahi, and he simply said the students gave me the gift of rest. Words cannot express how touching that gift was for me as a black queer woman to seen by others who also experience a disproportionate amount of trauma from police brutality and state violence. That was diversity, equity and inclusion happening in real time and I will carry that act of love and solidarity with me as I return to the work of supporting trans and non-binary folx here at Northwestern with my full energy.

Could a mass movement towards this end come together, could it actually achieve results? I don't know. But if not, we might as well just hang it up.

If you ask me today about some sitcom actor whose show went off the air a couple of seasons ago after a brief airing, I will draw a blank 9 times out of 10, but Grandma from 50 years ago is instantly recognizable.

    There's that, but these programs stick in your mind for some reason. Lucille Ball was on television almost continuously from 1951 to 1974 but you're not going to see the surviving cast of any of her four series signing autographs at fan conventions. Same deal with James Arness &c, who were on continuously for 21 years. DeForrest Kelley and James Doohan made a living from fan conventions for 20+ years and Lisa Loring from The Addams Family can still make a few bucks from it.

    "Equity audits" and "economic access" is what they demand. Oh, the terms are new - they used to talk "land reform" and "income redistribution". I've been explaining to people for 4 years now that what's going on is simply Commies crawling out of the woodwork again, a century passed since the "big one".

    I'm tired of hearing the lame-ass argument that "no, they don't talk about Kapital vs. Labor and most of these people have never read Marx." So what? This is what Communists do! The rank and file never gave much of a damn about all that even back in the old Communist revolutions and attempts thereof. They are resentful, and they want your stuff.

    My view has bolstered lately by a couple of things, one a video interview of American-raised Cuban Humberto Fontova (by Stefan Molyneux) who witnessed the Communist evil of Fidel Castro and his executioner Chic Che. There's one particular part that I'll discuss in a PS blog post. More familiar to iSteve readers may be this article by an excellent new VDare writer Jack Dalton called The Democrats’ RED DAWN: Yes, It’s A Communist Coup. But There Are Signs Of Hope. (Yep, he WENT there - "RED DAWN".)

    What's it gonna take for people to understand who these people are?!

    When I started working for the military forty years ago I took an oath to defend the Constitution from enemies, both foreign and domestic. As an admirer of the Constitution and the men who wrote it, I thought I was doing something worthwhile in my career.

    If I were just starting my career today, I don’t think I would make the same choice. Rather than being supporters of the Constitution and the principles of the Founders, our current leaders are increasingly in opposition to it. The January 6th Washington show trials are an example of the overbearing and vindictive nature of our current leaders. Even more worrying is Biden administration officials telling private entities like Facebook they need to do more to combat Covid misinformation. Every dictator who suppresses freedom of speech and press says they are doing it to combat the spread of misinformation.

    She’s really not that ugly. Best features are pretty butterscotch skin and bosomy but not fat. Not fat is a big plus for black women.

    She’s wearing a V neck top. Great choice for a round big feature face. Butterscotch skin looks great with medium and light blue true not yellow green green Aqua turquoise and teal. Black nail polish needs to go Some kind of medium coral not peach. Or light beige to match her skin.

    Face. She has big eyes a plus. Face is a nice normal shape not a bull dog jaw, a somewhat feminine oval pointed chin shape. Nose is OK. Her upper eyelids are droopy. Probably because of too much alcohol or hereditary. Upper eyelids lifted and the fat under her chin liposuctioned out. Keep the lines around her mouth. They are age and career appropriate; for her great career at top 20 ultra prestige Northwestern. The droopy upper lids ruin her big eyes. Nicely shaped eye brows.

    That thing on top of her head. I think it’s a wig. There’s brands of hair bleach so strong it’s only sold to licensed hair dressers. But I doubt that negro hair would survive the bleaching necessary to turn negro hair white like that.

    Whatever, get rid of it. For a big feature negro face chin to collar length and full on top softens the face and makes it more feminine. It’s a very standard hairstyle. With her skin color and blue and green clothes a dark brown even with an auburn tint would be fine.

    The mouth grimace. She’s just showing her teeth to display aggression, like dogs do when they snarl instead of bark. If she just smiled normally she’d look ok. Lipstick color is fine.

    Liberal women go out of their way to look ugly.

    Halle Berry’s 50 50

    The average black American is about 80% west African in ancestry. Your best guess is that she's 60-40. DNA testing on Quincy Jones in 2006 estimated his ancestry was 66% west African, so Rashida's about 33% west African. Prince Harry's mother-in-law has skin tone similar to that of Quincy Jones, so 33% west African would be a passable guess for Meghan's ancestry. Henry Louis Gates scores 50% west African, Corey Booker 45%.
