Well, not you. But a person of the proper race (which does not exist, but don’t you even think about trying to fake your race because you will be tracked down and ruined), gender, orientation, and politics can.

California Institute of Technology, Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences

Postdoctoral Instructor in STEM and Inequality

The Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the California Institute of Technology invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Instructorship on the topic of “STEM and Inequality in the Twentieth Century,” beginning Fall 2021. Area of Specialization: We are seeking candidates whose research engages critical theories to analyze the ways that scientific or technical knowledge and practice has been historically implicated in the perpetuation, design, and elaboration of systems of power and inequality. Emphases might include critiques of scientific knowledge, scientific disciplines, scientific processes, technological language, technological systems, STEM educational institutions, STEM industries, and STEM policy.

Scholars working across the humanities and humanistic social science, particularly in interdisciplinary and comparative fields, are encouraged to apply. We especially welcome applications from members of groups historically underrepresented in the academy. The successful candidate will be expected to teach three (ten-week) undergraduate courses during each of the two years. The appointment is contingent upon completion of the Ph.D.

… Applicants should submit a brief diversity and inclusion statement of approximately 500 words that discusses past and/or anticipated contributions to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in the areas of research, teaching, and/or outreach. …

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Didn’t you just say:

“We especially welcome applications from members of groups historically underrepresented”?

How can you then turn around and say:

“We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law”?

    Yeah, but all that ‘equal opportunity’ stuff is in the last paragraph, and only bad people like you Mr Sailer a) read all the way down- and b) take all those pre-kto/kogo ‘we-are-all-equal-under-the-law’ laws seriously.

    Plus, don’t give up hope on a CalTech job!

    I believe after the “STEM and Inequality in the Twentieth Century” gig is filled, there will be more available…

    STEM and Inequality in the Nineteenth Century
    STEM and Inequality in the Eighteenth Century
    STEM and Inequality in the…

    STEM and Inequality in the Twentieth Century BC

    See! So many, even a Steve Sailer has a chance! Miracles happen!

    Apply* today!

    The arcane symbols at the bottom of that advertisement, which to primitive minds like ours resemble the once-popular “equal opportunity” promise, are not really a series of meaningful words. They are just a ritual adornment, sort of like alternating blessed-crèche and flying-reindeer engravings on Winter-Celebration gift-wrapping paper. When the ad is read aloud to prospective applicants of diminished visual acuity,* that string of inscrutable symbols is pronounced “et-cetera, et-cetera” in the falling tone of a resentful sigh.

    *Many handicaps, especially morbid obesity and eccrine bromhidrosis, are good for extra intersectionality points, and applicants for D.I.E.-related jobs who possess any are advised to alert recruiters to that fact. However, recruiters often regard defects of sight with suspicion— “color blindness” sounds dangerously racist, and actual blindness might hinder a candidate’s ability to distinguish Black people from white demons. Currently there is no ADA-compliant “reasonable accommodation” possible for the handicap of being unable to see Black people coming, but one may yet become available: it has been proposed to wire a small video camera to one of those racist Google neural-network AI image-recognition systems, but have the resulting device say “holy person” instead of “gorilla” whenever it sees a Black face. If provided with such a device, a worker of diminished visual acuity might then be able to function in the academic workplace.

    Might be nice to have a Caltech grad on the Supreme Court. Without a law degree. I don’t care how great your school is, when the entire Supreme Court went to Harvard or Yale law schools, it can’t be good for anyone, except Harvard and Yale. I suspect the regular defection of most so called conservative justices to the side of the statists and make-it-up-as-we-go crowd is due to the cultural rot of the Ivies that they are steeped in. Elite classism is extremely politically correct because elites don’t have to live with the consequences.

    I think something similar happened to National Review, by the way. Most of their young guns went to Ivy League schools and eventually the entire magazine absorbed the elitist worldview. Reading it now you wouldn’t know that Buckley’s magazine opposed increased legal immigration in the 1990s, or warned against unfettered capitalism and economic growth as not automatically conservative aims.

    Alas, the instructor turned out to be this very bright guy who explained in detail how “externalities” could be dealt with by a proper system of property rights and free-market structures.

    So, by the end of the quarter, I was actually helping him explain the key ideas to the duller (or more ideological) members of the class.

She adopted two kids from Haiti on top of already having five of her own — one of those Christians with a savior complex. She’s gonna want to let in all the illegals. And being pro big biz, she’ll want to let in more legal immigrants and be weak on antitrust.

    Amy Wax would be a much better choice, she is against affirmative action, pro middle class values, and most importantly, against mass immigration especially from the third world. But Trump won’t nominate her because he’s a cuckservative himself, that’s why he’s done virtually nothing on immigration in four years, esp. on legal immigration.

    2. A bearing in the engine next to my window starts screaming for all hell, until I make enough noise for the pilot to slow down. For that I was called a terrorist by British Airways. Two weeks later they crash the plane taking off. People died.
    3. At night, a rookie BBE female learner pilot is given the wheel, and we almost did not land at all.
    Now add the Boeing mess, and the general increase in air accidents. I am now afraid of flying, and all because of deferred maintenance and cheap labour. ‘They’ point at increased flights, I point to the same number of planes doing more flights, it saves money.
    “Sustainable” is measured by Management’s willingness to spend money on that activity. Maintenance, in a bean-counters addled mind, does not make profit, it is not sustainable, but using that money to speculate or pay dividents are!
    Now apply that mentality to education, which has been declared an unsustainable activity by the UN, and you end up with somebody having to write this article.

    Look at the eye behavior in the Mike Wallace interview. Look up dictionary definition for obvious.

    May I ask where these incidents occurred? Not specifically, but what country or continent?

    I would only add that the planes sitting around are not a good thing. Planes, like certain makes of foreign car that must be driven, need to be flying in service, not slowly rotting away on the ground.

    I don’t care how thorough the overhauls are, there is no recovering a plane that has sat too long.

    My main money making opportunity for the next 3 or 4 years is an expat position involving transoceanic flight. This is looking less appetizing by the day.

    Thus, I certainly share many of your fears.

    On the contrary, burning down repositories
    of technical know how and letting nature reimpose some limits is the best case scenario for all people, not just white ones. I find most pine bros cringe, but in general they’re not wrong. They might be right even side from our dead gay country’s descent into suicidal madness, but they’re obviously correct given this fact.
