It seems like reading iSteve daily would help you ace the Knowledge About Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging section:

  1. Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, Belonging…………….DIEB

    Which happens to be German for “thief”.

    DIEB... well if you re-arrange the letters a bit, you get "BIDE". Now all that's missing is an N.

    Hmm. What are some interesting words that begin with N?

    Wait! What is the difference between "inclusion" and "belonging?"

  2. Thread: Universities increasingly require DEI statements for not only hiring but also promotion and tenure (see below).

    This is nothing but a loyalty oath to a political creed. If courts were on the level and guided by the actual law, these Diversity Statements would be adjudged illegal.

    They are increasingly required in grant applications as well. For example, NASA has started to add DIE statements in their applications. Here’s there website on “Mission Equity”:

    https://www.nasa.gov/mission-equity

    Largely, this means researchers promise to mentor young students of color - essentially affirmative action at the graduate level. Of course, graduate students at good schools are overwhelmingly immigrants from a few countries, so professors just throw up their hands halfway through the grant and say something along the lines of: “Well I would love to mentor a one-armed Black transsexual refugee from Ukraine who only speaks Farsi, but the admissions department will only admit Chinese and Indian males. What am I gonna do?”

    For now, these statements are taken about as seriously as the speed limit, but they will become increasingly important as Karens move up the org chart. Kayfabe must evolve in tandem, and I thank the individual who leaked this metric. As an Unz commentator, I can confidently check the boxes here. I just need to phrase the boilerplate correctly.

  3. Anon[141] • Disclaimer says:

    If they hired only black and brown faculty, they wouldn’t need these statements. However, that would make these schools suddenly into historically black colleges, and white students would no longer attend them.

    These schools still want white profs, but ones of the right sort. What they want are profs who won’t flunks minorities for being dumb. Because college enrollments are dropping, administrators want profs who will keep minorities in for all 4 years of school. The administrators want to keep minorities as cash cows, because there are a boatload of scholarships offered for minority students. They get government loans easily, and are stupid about taking on loads of debt. Colleges are trying to suck dumb minorities dry of all their cash like a vampire sucks blood. Otherwise, bloated administrative staff will have to be cut.

    The only place a college can cut costs is in administration. You can’t cut professors and keep a college running. Someone has to teach classes to attract the paying students in the first place. Administration is fat. Profs are bone and muscle.

  6. Darn straight.

    — Clear knowledge of, experience with, interest in, with dimensions of diversity … check!

    — Is aware of demographic data … check, check!!

    — Comfort discussing diversity … check, check, check!!!

    “UC Berkeley Professor Steven E. Sailer” sure has a nice ring to it.

    My hunch is that they are transitioning from DIE to BURIED, so they need a fifth and a sixth, a U and an R, perhaps for unwhite and retarded.

  12. Rubric or no rubric, whatever a rubric is, that looks like a LOT of work. If one of these positions is something I end up interested in, I’ll probably just hire a kid in Shanghai to do this part for me.

    Maybe Nonwhite? Then it can be Belonging, Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Nonwhite, or BIDEN.

    I suggest Liberation.

  18. From the rubric for Emory.

    Efforts to advance DEI “can include work completed outside of academia, e.g., community activism

    This explains a lot of the insanely strange deplatforming campaigns, they may seem weird to normals but those that start them can use them in their DEI statements.

    Sounds to me like Mostly Peaceful Protests will definitely qualify, and if some white heads happen to get bashed in the process, well we do have a chaired professorship available.

  31. The DIE oaths are unmistakable violations of freedom of conscience. That principle was established after the the Wars of Reformation (1542-1648, over state control of religion) slaughtered much of the European population.

    Defense of this most fundamental liberty was notably advanced by Locke and Jefferson. But they are white males and thus the alleged freedom is unjustifiable.

    Joking aside, it’s a travesty that American jurisprudence is able to perform mighty contortions in order to legislate on controversial cultural matters, but can’t lift a finger in defense of the most basic and precious freedom of conscience.

    For Locke it was both evil and stupid to try to force anyone to believe what he doesn’t believe.

  34. The university was modeled upon Plato’s discussion of the guardian class, trained in the acquisition of true knowledge, in contradistinction with the ignorant “cave dwellers” creating false myths to explain the shadows on the wall of the cave.

    The purpose of a university is to determine who is and is not educable, and to educate those who are. By definition the purpose of the university is to exclude the ignorant, the stupid, and the moronic.

    The idea that everyone “belongs” in a university is pure folly, it is like saying that everyone belongs in Plato’s guardian class.

  35. Does knowing all the diversity detailed by Charles Murray’s “Facing Reality” count? Like, 16% of blacks are above white average intelligence? Or that blacks are 10x more criminal than whites?

  36. Make sure to tell John Sailer if he wants to critique Jewish influence in America, it should be done through a psuedo.
