From the New York Times:

Return to Office? Some Women of Color Aren’t Ready

After more than a year of virtual work, employers are making plans to get back to the physical workplace. That has many workers worrying about the return of microaggressions and bias, too.

By Ruchika Tulshyan
June 23, 2021

“I actually like not having to go into the office and be constantly reminded that I’m the only Black woman there.”

— Courtney McCluney, an assistant professor of organizational behavior at Cornell’s ILR School

Employers are making plans for employees to return to the office after more than a year of virtual work, but many women of color aren’t eager to rush back.

“I’m nervous about going back,” said Courtney McCluney, who started a new job as an assistant professor of organizational behavior at Cornell’s ILR School last June, and hasn’t yet met many of her colleagues in person. For Dr. McCluney, a Black woman who has faced countless microaggressions throughout her professional career, the virtual environment provided a respite.

“This was the first year that I haven’t had my hair commented on and touched without permission in my professional life,” she said. “I actually like not having to go into the office and be constantly reminded that I’m the only Black woman there.”

Research backs this sentiment. In a survey by the Slack think tank Future Forum a whopping 97 percent of Black respondents in the U.S. said they preferred a fully remote or hybrid workplace. Only 3 percent of Black workers surveyed said they wanted to return fully in person, compared with 21 percent of white workers. In another study from the same group, Black workers reported a 50 percent increase in their sense of workplace belonging and a 64 percent increase in their ability to manage stress once they began working from home. The study concluded that flexible work was critical to a feeling of greater inclusion for Black workers.

To be sure, remote work brought many challenges for women of color. But a return to in-person work will also mean a return to microaggressions, pressure to conform to white standards of professionalism, and high rates of workplace stress and burnout.

As a whole, women of color tend to have a more negative experience in the workplace than white women, said Laura Morgan Roberts, a professor at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business. “They’ve historically worked in environments that have not been physically safe for them, much less psychologically or emotionally safe.” Many women of color feel disconnected or disengaged at work, overlooked for projects and not fully connected to co-workers and colleagues. There’s a feeling that white co-workers don’t really “understand, respect or appreciate our cultural context or our journey,” she said.

Many of the microaggressions women of color face happen in person: “Things like having your hair touched or people commenting on your body, or asking ‘Oh what are you eating? It smells weird,’” Dr. McCluney said. “This is why we don’t all want to go back into the office.”

There’s also physical safety to consider, according to Julie Pham, founder of CuriosityBased, a consulting practice that facilitates workshops to build collaboration and inclusion.

“I’ve heard A.A.P.I. women express concerns about their physical safety while walking outside,” Dr. Pham said, referring to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, “and more leaders must consider this as in-person work requires commuting.”

The Census Bureau used to lump Asians and Pacific Islanders together, but around 2000 the Pacific Islander organizations complained, not unreasonable, that they don’t have much to do with Asians. So the feds broke Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander out as a separate race, which seemed to work out okay with few complaints. But now in 2021, we’re suddenly hearing all the time once again about “A.A.P.I.” What happened?

And are Samoan women really as concerned as Chinese women about being attacked on the street by schizo black homeless maniacs?

… Tisha Held, a Seattle-based tax auditor, said that, for many years, being the only Black woman at her organization meant pretending she was all right in front of co-workers when hearing distressing news about a police shooting of a Black person or other racist incidents.

Virtual work, she said, alleviates and prevents those “superficial interactions when you come into work and everyone says, ‘Good morning,’ while you’re processing this anger and fear.” Remote work allowed her to not have to “go to work while processing low-level trauma all the time.” …

Juliette Austin, a diversity and inclusion leader for a New York-based technology company, notes that a flexible or hybrid approach in the early stages of re-entry could help ease stress. She also recommends scheduling weekly “physical, emotional, and intellectual” check-ins with team members.

“So many of us are burned out or generally overwhelmed,” she continued.

    The minoritarians have managed to get away with their crap because of generic white American goodwill. But what they continually fail to grasp, is that all this minority whining logically makes a clear case for ... "separate nations".

    If it's such a big burden to be around us tedious "white bread" Americans ... then, you know, hey let's just stop doing it! Go do your own thing and leave us out of it. More and more white Americans are figuring that out.

    It actually comes from other black women. Black women with straight or straighter hair ---i.e. "good hair"--- will condescendingly ask rivals with kinkier hair if they can "touch" their hair. It's a put down and meant to be. Black women are just transferring this onto Beckys off of their light-skinned, paper-bag-test passing sistas.

    I find it hard to imagine in an adult professional work environment. And it's a "dog that didn't bark" issue. I can see that this might happen and not become public because the black person doesn't want to upset work relationships, but if there were constant hair touching, for some percentage of them they would bubble to the surface in Twitter, where names would be named, smartphone videos would be posted, jobs would be lost, and a thousand newspaper op-eds by BIPOCs would bloom. Where are these cases? Give me links to news stories about the three most salient documented hair touching incidents of the past five years: You can't.

    “I actually like not having to go into the office and be constantly reminded that I’m the only Black woman there.”
     
    This is thanks to affirmative action in most cases. This woman probably is being carried as a token black employee, and is the least burdensome candidate interviewed. The company would be perfectly happy if she were gone and they didn't have to babysit such tokens.

    This is a corporate equivalent of the higher education mismatch problem, as described here by Gail Heriot, law school professor and an excellent, articulate, prolific dissident member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights:

    Talented minority students end up distributed among colleges and universities in patterns that are very different from those of their white and Asian counterparts. When the schools that are highest on the academic ladder relax their admissions policies in order to admit more underrepresented minority students, schools one rung down must do likewise or they will have far fewer underrepresented minority students than they would have had under a general color-blind admissions policy. The problem is thus passed on to the schools another rung down, which respond similarly. As a result, students from underrepresented minorities today are concentrated at the bottom of the distribution of entering academic credentials at most selective colleges and universities.
     
    In corporate America blacks are doing jobs that are above their level (while complaining that they "work twice as hard" to get results as whites do ... quite true, since dumber people have to work harder than smarter people). If everyone were hired on ability only, blacks would have black coworkers.

    Not once in my entire life! Couple that with my revulsion towards every black woman on the planet sans Candice Owens, the fact that most of them are bald, and that every time this fake issue is brought up socially my exclusively white social circle shares the same exact sentiment.

    Most people aren’t as racist as I am though...not yet. My stance has gone from compassionate and possibly patronizing to a dash of early denial, hyper focus, and now settling down to hyper aware, protective, guarded a commitment to keeping an arm’s distance, and a slow seething boil of resentment quick to point out black failure so fast that regressive dem girls sometimes cry.

    There's a scene in Chris Rock's Good Hair where he asks the proverbial group of bros in the barbershop whether they've ever run their fingers through a black woman's hair. The response is comedy gold.

    I suspect this is the source of the big lie.

    Good Hair is that example of Chris Rock commentary that almost but not quite gets it. He points out a lot of funny, true, stuff, but he doesn't get to the heart of the matter, which is that nappy, woolly hair is ugly. Black people have some advantages over whites: height, muscularity, etc. I have no problems admitting this. But their hair is ugly.

    Good hair:

    Doesn't really fit the bill, but I'll share one anecdote.

    At one point in my mid-20s, a friend had a black girlfriend who had a rather elaborate 'do that I'll compare roughly to this:

    https://blackbeautybombshells.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/FC5FF533-6B98-4E82-951B-07C6C75BD11E.jpeg

    A bunch of people (everyone except her white) got together for dinner at their apartment one time, and we were chatting afterwards, when she said, "Ah, it's time for me to do my hair." She then proceeded, in an exhibition that she pretended wasn't an exhibition, to start "doing" her hair in the middle of the living room. I didn't really understand most of what was involved, but it involved a lot of spraying from a squirt bottle and might have taken 20 minutes.

    Anyway, it was pretty clear to me that she wanted us to watch, and it was very distracting as we were trying to converse about other things, but I have little doubt that the way she recalled the event afterwards was "one time I went to this dinner party with a bunch of white people, and they just stared at my hair the whole time -- a few of them even tried to touch it."

  7. First of all, no one in a professional setting has ever touched this woman’s hair or would dream of touching a Black person’s hair.
    Is this ongoing fantasy about Blacks getting their hair touched a form of wishful thinking? Is she upset that no one wants to touch her hair? Wasn’t there a complaint a while back in one of the me-too sexual harassment scandals that the perpetrator went after many of the women he worked with but never looked twice at any of the Black women?

    BTW Steve, I’d love to see video of a schizo Black attacking a Samoan woman.I don’t know if you remember the Samoan bridal shower that got out of hand about 30 years ago. The LA County Sheriffs tried to break it up and it turned into a battle royal between a couple of dozen unarmed Samoan ladies and an equal number of male Sheriffs equipped with helmets, shields and batons. The melee was captured by news cameras and it looked touch and go for a while, with the outcome possibly going either way, before the Sheriffs finally prevailed. I seem to recall the County had to cough up some compensation to the Ladies. I thought that was a case of being sore losers since it was pretty much an even fight.

  12. I’m repeating myself, but….. it will all collapse.

    I still don’t know whether there will be a decisive event or accumulation of small, incremental happenings; whether external forces (Russia, China) will contribute to the change of course, and what role EU and the rest of Europe will play.

    Just- the US is too spacious, wealthy, incapable of strong ideological commitment & centrist that this all will vanish.

    But, some questions remain:

    1. Are American whites a people at all? To have nationalism, you have to have a nation. I doubt that US whites constitute a nation; even more, it is questionable whether large chunks of whites could be considered a nation. It is not a cultural nationalism – do average US whites know about their heritage, from Aristotle to Washington? – but something visceral. Nations clash over territory, dominance, identity & power. But- would whites organize to protect their sacred homeland from intruders? I don’t see that. What is whites’ sacred land, in the US?

    It doesn’t exist. Whites are like Gypsies, moving elsewhere when blacks and other undesirables show up. Then, whites are brainwashed by sports and popular culture, so they lack a strong sense of identity, a type us vs. them mentality.

    Fragmented, living too well, ideologically divided, lacking in group consciousness, too brainwashed & cuddled, disciplined by corporate America, wasting their energies on primitive pop-Christian festivals – whites are simply not a people capable of any serious group organization as whites. This is a contemporary reality. They are not comparable to real nations like French, Danes, Russians, Poles,…let alone Japanese or Chinese.

    US whites could start to organize themselves as ethno-nationalist groups only if the current system spectacularly collapses economically & culturally. But, this is not a real option, yet. Instructively, Brazil’s Bolsonaro succeeded in a country where whites are less than 50% due to a surge of (mostly) black crime, aided by lunatic leftist ideology promoted in the media & schools.

    If US whites are not a people, Americans are even less.

    2. non-whites are a mixed bunch, but it would take us too long. Shortly- blacks are a parasitic enemy; Asians are potentially powerful, but they too are fragmented – more, they deftly misuse grievance industry, but it is questionable how they will behave when chickens come home to roost; Hispanics are also divided, and while white Hispanics are, as a rule, not anti-white (in the US sense), their criminal elements may endanger the fabric of US society. To complicate things further, whites tend to mix with them: ca. 11% of births involving whites are with a non-white partner, and perhaps 60% of this 11% are with white Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans. Most of these will be assimilated into a white gene pool, but these things remain not clear as to whether a white ethno- national-cultural movement can count on these people.

    Anyway, short of WW3, the future will be worse yesterday.

Those Americans can’t become or convert to Russians (or whatever other nation they move to.) we would become a horrible problem for the native locals(whether Russian, Estonian or whatnot)

    Then I’ll really be in a quandary. I’ve learned to not say anything to women about their appearance in general, because I’ll be misconstrued no matter how it turns out. In the future all whites will be required to praise bipoc hair exactly in the right way and with the right tone and right words. Otherwise it is a micro aggression, which is fundamentally equivalent to a macro aggression, which is racist, which is the Worst Thing Ever to all humanity.

    -You don’t have to pretend to work when the boss walks by you.
    -When there are online meetings, you can space out (until you have to talk) and nobody can see what you’re doing.

    I read that roughly half the workday is wasted on non-work tasks (surfing the web, gossiping, phone calls with family, etc).

    By working from home, you basically get your assignments done in 4 hours and then have the rest of the day to goof off.

    That’s why people want to work from home.

  41. All of this malarkey about microaggressions really needs to come to an end and go away permanently. First, can anyone even succinctly define the time? Second, are blacks the only ones allowed to use the term? It doesn’t seem like any other race uses it much. Microagression might as well be defined as: “A white person did not treat me with the appropriate respect and deference that is due to a Nubian demigod/royalty.”

    Microaggressions can be anything and everything. For example, concerning Ms. McCluney, if a white colleague fails to greet her in the morning, then she can claim that that was a microaggression, and that she was being “minimized” and that she was “unseen” in the workplace. Conversely if a white colleague does greet her in the morning, then she could say that that’s a microagression as well because the white colleague was being “too familiar” and forward with her. Again, a microagression is whatever the poor hapless victim wants it to be.

    People who force Woke PC culture on students in American schools are no different from the Chinese who are forcing their ideology onto those Uighurs forcibly herded and trapped in their encampments. White U.S. students in public schools have to attend those schools because they can’t afford private schools. They have no way to say no to the indoctrination. They are harassed and told they are evil, and that’s exactly how Uighur children are treated in schools. It’s a violation of their civil rights.

    Working from home is fun for many reasons.

    -You save an hour from not commuting.
    -You don't have to dress up.
    -You don't have to pretend to work when the boss walks by you.
    -When there are online meetings, you can space out (until you have to talk) and nobody can see what you're doing.

    I read that roughly half the workday is wasted on non-work tasks (surfing the web, gossiping, phone calls with family, etc).

    By working from home, you basically get your assignments done in 4 hours and then have the rest of the day to goof off.

    That's why people want to work from home.

    Everybody loves goofing off on the company's time, but I bet Blacks like it even more than the rest of us.

    First of all, no one in a professional setting has ever touched this woman’s hair or would dream of touching a Black person’s hair.
    Is this ongoing fantasy about Blacks getting their hair touched a form of wishful thinking? Is she upset that no one wants to touch her hair? Wasn’t there a complaint a while back in one of the me-too sexual harassment scandals that the perpetrator went after many of the women he worked with but never looked twice at any of the Black women?

    BTW Steve, I’d love to see video of a schizo Black attacking a Samoan woman.I don’t know if you remember the Samoan bridal shower that got out of hand about 30 years ago. The LA County Sheriffs tried to break it up and it turned into a battle royal between a couple of dozen unarmed Samoan ladies and an equal number of male Sheriffs equipped with helmets, shields and batons. The melee was captured by news cameras and it looked touch and go for a while, with the outcome possibly going either way, before the Sheriffs finally prevailed. I seem to recall the County had to cough up some compensation to the Ladies. I thought that was a case of being sore losers since it was pretty much an even fight.

    I find it hard to imagine in an adult professional work environment. And it’s a “dog that didn’t bark” issue. I can see that this might happen and not become public because the black person doesn’t want to upset work relationships, but if there were constant hair touching, for some percentage of them they would bubble to the surface in Twitter, where names would be named, smartphone videos would be posted, jobs would be lost, and a thousand newspaper op-eds by BIPOCs would bloom. Where are these cases? Give me links to news stories about the three most salient documented hair touching incidents of the past five years: You can’t.

    “I actually like not having to go into the office and be constantly reminded that I’m the only Black woman there.”

    This is thanks to affirmative action in most cases. This woman probably is being carried as a token black employee, and is the least burdensome candidate interviewed. The company would be perfectly happy if she were gone and they didn’t have to babysit such tokens.

    This is a corporate equivalent of the higher education mismatch problem, as described here by Gail Heriot, law school professor and an excellent, articulate, prolific dissident member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights:

    Talented minority students end up distributed among colleges and universities in patterns that are very different from those of their white and Asian counterparts. When the schools that are highest on the academic ladder relax their admissions policies in order to admit more underrepresented minority students, schools one rung down must do likewise or they will have far fewer underrepresented minority students than they would have had under a general color-blind admissions policy. The problem is thus passed on to the schools another rung down, which respond similarly. As a result, students from underrepresented minorities today are concentrated at the bottom of the distribution of entering academic credentials at most selective colleges and universities.

    In corporate America blacks are doing jobs that are above their level (while complaining that they “work twice as hard” to get results as whites do … quite true, since dumber people have to work harder than smarter people). If everyone were hired on ability only, blacks would have black coworkers.

    Not once in my entire life! Couple that with my revulsion towards every black woman on the planet sans Candice Owens, the fact that most of them are bald, and that every time this fake issue is brought up socially my exclusively white social circle shares the same exact sentiment.

    Most people aren’t as racist as I am though…not yet. My stance has gone from compassionate and possibly patronizing to a dash of early denial, hyper focus, and now settling down to hyper aware, protective, guarded a commitment to keeping an arm’s distance, and a slow seething boil of resentment quick to point out black failure so fast that regressive dem girls sometimes cry.

    Is this ongoing fantasy about Blacks getting their hair touched a form of wishful thinking? Is she upset that no one wants to touch her hair? Wasn’t there a complaint a while back in one of the me-too sexual harassment scandals that the perpetrator went after many of the women he worked with but never looked twice at any of the Black women?

    BTW Steve, I’d love to see video of a schizo Black attacking a Samoan woman.I don’t know if you remember the Samoan bridal shower that got out of hand about 30 years ago. The LA County Sheriffs tried to break it up and it turned into a battle royal between a couple of dozen unarmed Samoan ladies and an equal number of male Sheriffs equipped with helmets, shields and batons. The melee was captured by news cameras and it looked touch and go for a while, with the outcome possibly going either way, before the Sheriffs finally prevailed. I seem to recall the County had to cough up some compensation to the Ladies. I thought that was a case of being sore losers since it was pretty much an even fight.

I knew Matt had a couple of kids back in the last century to his first wife but then heard they got a divorce and thought that was it. Apparently though he’s been pretty busy over the last decade with his second wife. If all white males were flaming homos of his ilk we’d have no problem.

Therefore, when you have a ton of money without having to work very hard for it, you can easy have seven children.

    It's exhausting reading how exhausting life is in America for blacks. The world's biggest moaners and complainers. Blacks here live with 20 times the wealth they would have in Africa. Without the disease and chaos in Africa, though they do their best to create chaos here. You take all kinds of crap drugs like George Floyd, go blame yourself not YT. You eat to get diabetes, don't blame me.
    If your great grandparents came from Germany, then you are living on about the same scale as you would back in your homeland. Same holds true for most Europeans living in America.

    Why all the moaning and complaining? This is psychosocial warfare to wring more welfare $$$ out of whitey and endless affirmative action. Even when you are fresh off the boat from Gambia and Nigeria. Joy Reid (MSNBC) a mega-moaner. Both her parents are from Africa. One from Congo of all places. She has learned to moan along with the best of our real blacks with slavery heritage. I'll bet most who watch her figure she is real American black.

    Can't speak for today today, but i've definitely seen it in the past five years. For one thing in ridiculing this stuff over the years we tend to focus on the extremes and are thus probably more aware of woke stuff than anyone other than outright activists.

    Commenting on, talking about, comparing and touching clothes and sometimes hair and skin (especially when discussing products like conditioners and moisturizers) appears to be a normal bonding thing that women in the office do. Can it turn "mean girls" ? of course, but can't anything?

    This whole thing is yet another example of misanthropic "academics" convincing black people that perfectly normal and even positive experiences in society are signs of hidden oppression.

    I still don't know whether there will be a decisive event or accumulation of small, incremental happenings; whether external forces (Russia, China) will contribute to the change of course, and what role EU and the rest of Europe will play.

    Just- the US is too spacious, wealthy, incapable of strong ideological commitment & centrist that this all will vanish.

    But, some questions remain:

    1. Are American whites a people at all? To have nationalism, you have to have a nation. I doubt that US whites constitute a nation; even more, it is questionable whether large chunks of whites could be considered a nation. It is not a cultural nationalism – do average US whites know about their heritage, from Aristotle to Washington? – but something visceral. Nations clash over territory, dominance, identity & power. But- would whites organize to protect their sacred homeland from intruders? I don’t see that. What is whites’ sacred land, in the US?

    It doesn’t exist. Whites are like Gypsies, moving elsewhere when blacks and other undesirables show up. Then, whites are brainwashed by sports and popular culture, so they lack a strong sense of identity, a type us vs. them mentality.

    Fragmented, living too well, ideologically divided, lacking in group consciousness, too brainwashed & cuddled, disciplined by corporate America, wasting their energies on primitive pop-Christian festivals – whites are simply not a people capable of any serious group organization as whites. This is a contemporary reality. They are not comparable to real nations like French, Danes, Russians, Poles,…let alone Japanese or Chinese.

    US whites could start to organize themselves as ethno-nationalist groups only if the current system spectacularly collapses economically & culturally. But, this is not a real option, yet. Instructively, Brazil’s Bolsonaro succeeded in a country where whites are less than 50% due to a surge of (mostly) black crime, aided by lunatic leftist ideology promoted in the media & schools.

    If US whites are not a people, Americans are even less.

    2. non-whites are a mixed bunch, but it would take us too long. Shortly- blacks are a parasitic enemy; Asians are potentially powerful, but they too are fragmented – more, they deftly misuse grievance industry, but it is questionable how they will behave when chickens come home to roost; Hispanics are also divided, and while white Hispanics are, as a rule, not anti-white (in the US sense), their criminal elements may endanger the fabric of US society. To complicate things further, whites tend to mix with them: ca. 11% of births involving whites are with a non-white partner, and perhaps 60% of this 11% are with white Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans. Most of these will be assimilated into a white gene pool, but these things remain not clear as to whether a white ethno- national-cultural movement can count on these people.

    There are 12 Fogerty grandchildren, in addition to any of Tom and John's siblings. A couple of John's sons perform with him, but the rest seem to have avoided the music biz, understandably.

    The kids of rock stars tend to become journeyman musicians, not stars themselves, e.g., Zak Starkey. Use those connections!

    Will CCR be cancelled for once having been the Golliwogs? It was their label's idea, and they hated it. John's backup singers Lavone and Trysette seem to have forgiven him, although Trysette is Australian and visibly white. But she's rural and may very well qualify as abo under Oz's lax rules.

    “I actually like not having to go into the office and be constantly reminded that I’m the only Black woman there.”

    Ok, here’s are a couple of tips that might make your day at the office a little more bearable: Change at least your first name “Ruchika” to something pronounceable like “Michelle”, which would help with the “constantly reminded” problem. Also, try thinking about something other than being black for at least ten minutes out of every waking hour. You’ll be surprised to learn that your white colleagues don’t think much about your being black or about you at all. But maybe the latter is really your beef.

  109. “I actually like not having to go into the office…”

    Something tells me the feeling is mutual. Stay home, Courtney! Win-win!

    And, wow, Courtney is a new hire. She’s barely met her colleagues and already she’s telling them how much she hates them. Imagine any white person expressing such a sentiment.

  110. Is there any difference between touching real black hair and artificial hair weaves? I could imagine someone being curious as to the feel of artifical hair, or perhaps mistaking it for a bell pull.

  111. But now in 2021, we’re suddenly hearing all the time once again about “A.A.P.I.” What happened?

    Any time I see an acronym that begins with AA I expect “American Association”.

    Anyway, “fancy Asians” and “jungle Asians” is by far the most helpful breakdown in my opinion. And all the islanders go under Jungle.

    Good Hair is that example of Chris Rock commentary that almost but not quite gets it. He points out a lot of funny, true, stuff, but he doesn’t get to the heart of the matter, which is that nappy, woolly hair is ugly. Black people have some advantages over whites: height, muscularity, etc. I have no problems admitting this. But their hair is ugly.

    -When there are online meetings, you can space out (until you have to talk) and nobody can see what you're doing.

    I read that roughly half the workday is wasted on non-work tasks (surfing the web, gossiping, phone calls with family, etc).

    By working from home, you basically get your assignments done in 4 hours and then have the rest of the day to goof off.

    The burden of living in a civilized environment is that - I'm serious here - as Dr. Freud so clearly expressed it, civilization does actually have its discontents. To make this explicit: Saying good morning when entering a room is such a civilizational act (I'm still serious here).
    It's actually emotionally - challenging, ok? - to be civilized. And this does indeed make people nervous, suspicious, paranoid, aggressive - etc. My Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (American Pie/ Don McLean) of modernity so to speak (the three Doctores Goethe, Hegel, and Freud) did know this perfectly well already, btw.).

They then decided that you have to 2) calm these monsters down - not least by feeding them with tiny bits of rationality and - faith - - and reason. This works out so-la-la, from the perspective of the woke (= the regressive left), not least because nobody really knows how destructive the monster might be if it would not be calmed down, in exactly the way, it is done now. Plus: It is fun to wrestle with reason and rationality because: Not least because while doing so, you can turn into something that looks (at least at first sight) - incredibly desirable - : - Go ask Macy Gray: On "How Life IS" she explains, that you can unleash the Sex-O-Matic Venus Freak in just about everyBody. - Anytime now and - fXXk, or fist or whatever you have: Bondage, lick, kick, trick - - - - - for peace, so to speak, and be - - - - - - - - happier ever after (for thos in doubt about the attractivity of such ideas: you might want to have a five minutes glance at John von Leiden in Münster - right at teh beginnign of our time: He already managed to turn around a perfectly well functioning big city for - quite ssome time and - - - turn it into - a real world place where Desire (Bob Dylan / Friedrich Nietzsche (Dylan mentions wilhelm Reich an d- Freidrich Nietzsche on Desire (which is an interestign album not least because of this mention - ok - now I'm quite modern again while fading out - - - in being individualistic and - arguing in aesthetic rather than politicl or any other caategories - but: according to Dr. Habermas, I'm stil on track of modernity here - and- "remember" (Steve Bannon) - - - for Dr. Habermas, postmodernity isn't but a philsophical - - - superficiality (an illusion, mor eor lesss.

    I'd never heard of John von Leiden but reading the description of his demise on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_of_Leiden#Life ) (the details which i can't verify but seems broadly consistent with what few independent statements i could find) should give pause to anyone claiming that the brutality of blacks or third world immigrants is of a different kind than whites or Christian whites and that it is obvious that they can't assimilate etc. etc.

    Yes, that was 500 years ago, but it was ONLY 500 years ago which in evolutionary terms is the blink of an eye.

    It wasn't until the late 1700s that the white Christian nations of Europe started abolishing tortureby the state! (https://tortureum.com/history-of-torture/ )

    Asking the commentariat, has anyone seen this hair touching phenomenon in person? Genuinely curious.
     
    I find it hard to imagine in an adult professional work environment. And it's a "dog that didn't bark" issue. I can see that this might happen and not become public because the black person doesn't want to upset work relationships, but if there were constant hair touching, for some percentage of them they would bubble to the surface in Twitter, where names would be named, smartphone videos would be posted, jobs would be lost, and a thousand newspaper op-eds by BIPOCs would bloom. Where are these cases? Give me links to news stories about the three most salient documented hair touching incidents of the past five years: You can't.

    “I actually like not having to go into the office and be constantly reminded that I’m the only Black woman there.”
     
    This is thanks to affirmative action in most cases. This woman probably is being carried as a token black employee, and is the least burdensome candidate interviewed. The company would be perfectly happy if she were gone and they didn't have to babysit such tokens.

    This is a corporate equivalent of the higher education mismatch problem, as described here by Gail Heriot, law school professor and an excellent, articulate, prolific dissident member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights:

    Talented minority students end up distributed among colleges and universities in patterns that are very different from those of their white and Asian counterparts. When the schools that are highest on the academic ladder relax their admissions policies in order to admit more underrepresented minority students, schools one rung down must do likewise or they will have far fewer underrepresented minority students than they would have had under a general color-blind admissions policy. The problem is thus passed on to the schools another rung down, which respond similarly. As a result, students from underrepresented minorities today are concentrated at the bottom of the distribution of entering academic credentials at most selective colleges and universities.
     
    In corporate America blacks are doing jobs that are above their level (while complaining that they "work twice as hard" to get results as whites do ... quite true, since dumber people have to work harder than smarter people). If everyone were hired on ability only, blacks would have black coworkers.

    Doesn’t really fit the bill, but I’ll share one anecdote.

    At one point in my mid-20s, a friend had a black girlfriend who had a rather elaborate ‘do that I’ll compare roughly to this:

    A bunch of people (everyone except her white) got together for dinner at their apartment one time, and we were chatting afterwards, when she said, “Ah, it’s time for me to do my hair.” She then proceeded, in an exhibition that she pretended wasn’t an exhibition, to start “doing” her hair in the middle of the living room. I didn’t really understand most of what was involved, but it involved a lot of spraying from a squirt bottle and might have taken 20 minutes.

    Anyway, it was pretty clear to me that she wanted us to watch, and it was very distracting as we were trying to converse about other things, but I have little doubt that the way she recalled the event afterwards was “one time I went to this dinner party with a bunch of white people, and they just stared at my hair the whole time — a few of them even tried to touch it.”

Normal conversations center around advanced mathematics or physics. Social behaviors are extremely refined and nuanced. Music and culture are at a level where the vast majority of whites can’t compose or even appreciate the subtle beauty created by the majority race.

    Due to their sheer genius, this race has created technologies that are almost magical such as teleportation, ESP, the curing of all disease, etc. And you are well aware that whites were unable to do that. In this society, golf is seen as an unrefined ghetto sport, while basketball and football have been banned due to the brutality (although baseball is still oddly popular due to the statistics aspect).

    I'm repeating myself, but..... it will all collapse.

    I still don't know whether there will be a decisive event or accumulation of small, incremental happenings; whether external forces (Russia, China) will contribute to the change of course, and what role EU and the rest of Europe will play.

    Just- the US is too spacious, wealthy, incapable of strong ideological commitment & centrist that this all will vanish.

    But, some questions remain:

    1. Are American whites a people at all? To have nationalism, you have to have a nation. I doubt that US whites constitute a nation; even more, it is questionable whether large chunks of whites could be considered a nation. It is not a cultural nationalism – do average US whites know about their heritage, from Aristotle to Washington? – but something visceral. Nations clash over territory, dominance, identity & power. But- would whites organize to protect their sacred homeland from intruders? I don’t see that. What is whites’ sacred land, in the US?

    It doesn’t exist. Whites are like Gypsies, moving elsewhere when blacks and other undesirables show up. Then, whites are brainwashed by sports and popular culture, so they lack a strong sense of identity, a type us vs. them mentality.

    Fragmented, living too well, ideologically divided, lacking in group consciousness, too brainwashed & cuddled, disciplined by corporate America, wasting their energies on primitive pop-Christian festivals – whites are simply not a people capable of any serious group organization as whites. This is a contemporary reality. They are not comparable to real nations like French, Danes, Russians, Poles,…let alone Japanese or Chinese.

    US whites could start to organize themselves as ethno-nationalist groups only if the current system spectacularly collapses economically & culturally. But, this is not a real option, yet. Instructively, Brazil’s Bolsonaro succeeded in a country where whites are less than 50% due to a surge of (mostly) black crime, aided by lunatic leftist ideology promoted in the media & schools.

    If US whites are not a people, Americans are even less.

    2. non-whites are a mixed bunch, but it would take us too long. Shortly- blacks are a parasitic enemy; Asians are potentially powerful, but they too are fragmented – more, they deftly misuse grievance industry, but it is questionable how they will behave when chickens come home to roost; Hispanics are also divided, and while white Hispanics are, as a rule, not anti-white (in the US sense), their criminal elements may endanger the fabric of US society. To complicate things further, whites tend to mix with them: ca. 11% of births involving whites are with a non-white partner, and perhaps 60% of this 11% are with white Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans. Most of these will be assimilated into a white gene pool, but these things remain not clear as to whether a white ethno- national-cultural movement can count on these people.

    Anyway, short of WW3, the future will be worse yesterday.

    Replies: @Elli, @Dieter Kief, @Thea

    Yes and this why I say that white Americans can’t just relocate to Russia or wherever to solve the problem. Being Russian ( or any other ethnicity) has a particular meaning separate from being white. Those Americans can’t become or convert to Russians (or whatever other nation they move to.) we would become a horrible problem for the native locals(whether Russian, Estonian or whatnot)

    The shame of Wokism is how boring it all is. No rich insight into the human psyche, no true exploration of how previous generations lived or thought, no attempt to elevate the human spirit. But that simple kindness may be what gives it sticking power.

    For a century, in "black" fraternities/sororities, or for elite societies at HBCs (historically black colleges) the first test to get in was the "paper bag test": if the pledge's skin were darker than a brown paper lunch bag, they were barred. It's a very old Talented Tenth/passer ideal.

    I don't know if this changed in light of Obama and his wife's ascension. Both would have failed the paper bag test. However, as Obama was Kenyan, grew up in Hawaii, went to Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard, and largely avoided black aristocratic society until he went to Chicago, he wouldn't have cared. And Michelle was a citified, proud-to-be-black Chicago hood rat and thus wasn't into the whole black aristocracy world either. Her time as Jesse Jackson's, uh, "babysitter", would've also turned her off those folks, as Jackson pushed the "proud to be black" ghetto ideas and not the Talented Tenth ones.

    It's something I always harp on about when the Black Panthers come up. They were based on nationalist groups from elsewhere but since there was no African-American homeland to liberate or coherent political demands since they sprung into existence after the civil rights laws so they just fucked around and robbed cash vans and killed cops with much of their terrorism being based around getting their guys out of jail because they'd been arrested for robbing cash vans or participating in actions to free other guys. There was no point but a lot of people died and yet no other group of former terrorists, except ones who succeeded in founding a new state do you find such mainstream lauding and acceptance. They're praised as if they 'won' something or achieved anything, as if there was any end to their means, it's weird.

    What we saw last year would have been the basis for a movement of national liberation elsewhere but because blacks were brought to America and are dispersed throughout like Armenians in the Ottoman empire without much ideation to the creation of their own ethnostate, (The 'black belt' idea of national independence never got anywhere and that territory doesn't seem to stir much passion in blacks beyond the deliberate use of Southern idioms in speech to reinforce group identity.) even amongst the most radical black nationalists, it's like a worm turning in an apple, you'll get race riots every 25-30 years or so.

    I'm surprised that the New York Times is using the Dr. honorific with someone who isn't a real doctor. Then again, perhaps I shouldn't be so surprised because of who/whom.

    Only 3 percent of Black workers surveyed said they wanted to return fully in person, compared with 21 percent of white workers.

    It’s something I always harp on about when the Black Panthers come up. They were based on nationalist groups from elsewhere but since there was no African-American homeland to liberate or coherent political demands since they sprung into existence after the civil rights laws so they just fucked around and robbed cash vans and killed cops with much of their terrorism being based around getting their guys out of jail because they’d been arrested for robbing cash vans or participating in actions to free other guys. There was no point but a lot of people died and yet no other group of former terrorists, except ones who succeeded in founding a new state do you find such mainstream lauding and acceptance. They’re praised as if they ‘won’ something or achieved anything, as if there was any end to their means, it’s weird.

    What we saw last year would have been the basis for a movement of national liberation elsewhere but because blacks were brought to America and are dispersed throughout like Armenians in the Ottoman empire without much ideation to the creation of their own ethnostate, (The ‘black belt’ idea of national independence never got anywhere and that territory doesn’t seem to stir much passion in blacks beyond the deliberate use of Southern idioms in speech to reinforce group identity.) even amongst the most radical black nationalists, it’s like a worm turning in an apple, you’ll get race riots every 25-30 years or so.

    For a century, in “black” fraternities/sororities, or for elite societies at HBCs (historically black colleges) the first test to get in was the “paper bag test”: if the pledge’s skin were darker than a brown paper lunch bag, they were barred. It’s a very old Talented Tenth/passer ideal.

    I don’t know if this changed in light of Obama and his wife’s ascension. Both would have failed the paper bag test. However, as Obama was Kenyan, grew up in Hawaii, went to Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard, and largely avoided black aristocratic society until he went to Chicago, he wouldn’t have cared. And Michelle was a citified, proud-to-be-black Chicago hood rat and thus wasn’t into the whole black aristocracy world either. Her time as Jesse Jackson’s, uh, “babysitter”, would’ve also turned her off those folks, as Jackson pushed the “proud to be black” ghetto ideas and not the Talented Tenth ones.

    Can’t speak for today today, but i’ve definitely seen it in the past five years. For one thing in ridiculing this stuff over the years we tend to focus on the extremes and are thus probably more aware of woke stuff than anyone other than outright activists.

    Commenting on, talking about, comparing and touching clothes and sometimes hair and skin (especially when discussing products like conditioners and moisturizers) appears to be a normal bonding thing that women in the office do. Can it turn “mean girls” ? of course, but can’t anything?

    This whole thing is yet another example of misanthropic “academics” convincing black people that perfectly normal and even positive experiences in society are signs of hidden oppression.

    All of this malarkey about microaggressions really needs to come to an end and go away permanently. First, can anyone even succinctly define the time? Second, are blacks the only ones allowed to use the term? It doesn’t seem like any other race uses it much. Microagression might as well be defined as: “A white person did not treat me with the appropriate respect and deference that is due to a Nubian demigod/royalty.”

    Microaggressions can be anything and everything. For example, concerning Ms. McCluney, if a white colleague fails to greet her in the morning, then she can claim that that was a microaggression, and that she was being “minimized” and that she was “unseen” in the workplace. Conversely if a white colleague does greet her in the morning, then she could say that that’s a microagression as well because the white colleague was being “too familiar” and forward with her. Again, a microagression is whatever the poor hapless victim wants it to be.

    I’d never heard of John von Leiden but reading the description of his demise on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_of_Leiden#Life ) (the details which i can’t verify but seems broadly consistent with what few independent statements i could find) should give pause to anyone claiming that the brutality of blacks or third world immigrants is of a different kind than whites or Christian whites and that it is obvious that they can’t assimilate etc. etc.

    Yes, that was 500 years ago, but it was ONLY 500 years ago which in evolutionary terms is the blink of an eye.

    It wasn’t until the late 1700s that the white Christian nations of Europe started abolishing tortureby the state! (https://tortureum.com/history-of-torture/ )
