From the Washington Post:

Second Georgetown Law professor leaves in midst of investigation over conversation about Black students

By Lauren Lumpkin
March 12, 2021 at 2:38 p.m. PST

A second Georgetown University Law Center professor is leaving the school after an investigation into a conversation between two faculty members that included negative comments about Black students.

David Batson, an adjunct professor, said he submitted his letter of resignation to law school Dean William Treanor on Friday. Batson was placed on administrative leave Thursday after a video clip that showed him talking about student performance with Sandra Sellers went viral.

Sellers was fired Thursday.

“I hate to say this. I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are Blacks,” Sellers said in the video. “Happens almost every semester. And it’s like, ‘Oh, come on.’ You get some really good ones, but there are also usually some that are just plain at the bottom. It drives me crazy.”

Batson, in a second clip shared on Twitter, appeared to question his own unconscious bias. But students, including the university’s Black Law Students Association, criticized Batson for failing to condemn Sellers’s comments.

Batson, in a letter he shared with The Washington Post, apologized.

“In the moment, my heartfelt response was to point the discussion toward what I believe is our personal responsibility — to be aware of and respond to potential unconscious bias in all our undertakings,” Batson wrote. “I understand, however, that I missed the chance to respond in a more direct manner to address the inappropriate content of those remarks.”

Sure, Batson worried whether it was his “unconscious bias” that was causing blacks to perform poorly, but any response by a white short of calling in a drone strike on the other white is unacceptable.

Of course, this incident began a massive, vibrant debate in the press about the effect of affirmative action on black law students’ grade considering their considerably lower LSAT scores.

Nah, I’m just kidding.

I searched in Google News for

“Sandra Sellers” LSAT

And found all of two hits:

    The counter-reaction is going to be unpleasant. I wouldn’t be surprised if blacks are confronted with a barrage of real racism once other people get fed-up with being censored and hectored. It’s likely to happen when the white and woke realize that they’ve created a monster and it turns on them, and that there’s no point in caring about what they say anymore.

    Yes, they aren't "snowflakes". They are monsters.

    I've given up on Boomers. I don't think that any large fraction of them are going to be persuaded that the building is on fire.

    When doing a remote class last semester, students often asked to speak privately as class was ending. Several times I forgot to terminate the class recording. No one noticed, but it could have been a disaster, had the student asked questions that required an indiscreet answer. So everyone should remember: STOP THE RECORDING!

We're just pretending it doesn't exist now? Have the NPCs no limit to what they will tolerate? I guess that's how we lived under theocracy for 1500 years...

    I recall Confucius saying that to fix a society you have to set the names right. Call things what they are. Ours seems to be developing a second language, or perhaps several tiers of language. Above a certain level in, say, law or engineering or whatever, everyone knows blacks can't cut it and you're supposed to pretend they can for appearance's sake. But "blacks can't cut it and you must pretend they can for appearance's sake" is unutterable. Problem.

    That thought has occurred to me too. I think I may have even mentioned it here recently.

    The main reason our elites with all their money are willing to be woke is they feel they are exempt from being negatively affected by wokeness. When they discover there people who want to take their real and significant privileges away, they will drop wokeness immediately. It was supposed to be a feel good pleasure for them and a way to take away still more power from long term Americans who lose more each year. It was never supposed to take away anything important from the elites.

    I’m already there. I have gone from fairly neutral about blacks - take each person as they come - to being sick of them. All of them, even though rationally I know “they’re not all like that”. They don’t see me as an individual, so why offer them the same courtesy?

    Now I can’t even listen to music by blacks, watch tv or movies featuring blacks - I recently moved to a small Midwestern city with practically zero blacks, and all these new helpful identifications of “black-owned businesses” just let me know where NOT to spend a dime of my money.

    There's probably a lot more depth to plummet before we hit bottom. Nobody stood up for these people despite the fact that what they said was true. They're still fired. Amy Wax at U of Penn Law School pointed out the same facts about black student performance and was relieved of her teaching duties. Who knows, maybe they'll go back and fire her now to follow the Georgetown precedent.

    True, there are signs of resentment of woke among disgruntled liberals and elites now, but we may have to lose an actual war before it's discredited. Yet even then whitey might get blamed for bad engineering and leadership. It might be said that only until the Joint Chiefs and Executive branch are all people of color and all defense contractors are similarly staffed will America return to her former powers, which of course were stolen without credit from oppressed Wakandans within the historic ranks and weapons companies. Delusional thinking is very good at developing rationalizations.

    However, if this is following the Cultural Revolution template I do look forward to the part where the Red Guards are sent to peasant villages to work as farm labor. Imagine the obnoxious and discredited woke being sent to Idaho, West Virginia, and Nebraska to work as loggers, miners, and meat packers. Unfortunately since they would lack the inherent Chinese work ethic, our lumber, ore, and meat would be in shorter supply than during the early pandemic. Maybe best to send them to SF to work poop patrol.

    Our rulers are exploiting natural fault lines that are very easy to exploit. While I do think it's theroretically possible for Americans of different races and religions (read: political beliefs) to put aside our differences in order to remove our rulers from power and take all their stuff, in reality, this will never happen. It's just too easy to pit black against white, right against left, etc. And even if Wall Street and DC were throughly ransacked and fumigated, the redistribution of the spoils would be complicated by the exact same fault lines that are dividing us now.

Amy Wax at U of Penn Law School pointed out the same facts about black student performance and was relieved of her teaching duties. Who knows, maybe they’ll go back and fire her now to follow the Georgetown precedent.

    True, there are signs of resentment of woke among disgruntled liberals and elites now, but we may have to lose an actual war before it’s discredited. Yet even then whitey might get blamed for bad engineering and leadership. It might be said that only until the Joint Chiefs and Executive branch are all people of color and all defense contractors are similarly staffed will America return to her former powers, which of course were stolen without credit from oppressed Wakandans within the historic ranks and weapons companies. Delusional thinking is very good at developing rationalizations.

    However, if this is following the Cultural Revolution template I do look forward to the part where the Red Guards are sent to peasant villages to work as farm labor. Imagine the obnoxious and discredited woke being sent to Idaho, West Virginia, and Nebraska to work as loggers, miners, and meat packers. Unfortunately since they would lack the inherent Chinese work ethic, our lumber, ore, and meat would be in shorter supply than during the early pandemic.

  24. If you’re wondering why Whites are so timid about asserting their racial interests, there’s a simple reason why.

    That reason is not “White guilt.”
    That reason is not “empathy.”
    That reason is not “high mindedness.”

    That reason is FEAR.

    Whites know that if they say one wrong word, they could ruin their life instantaneously. Heck, just by failing to condemn racism in the strongest terms available, you can easily ruin your life.

    You can get fired from your job, financially ruined, slandered by the media, harassed on social media, and viewed as a pariah by mainstream society. In very serious cases, you can get subjected to violence from Anti-Fa and/or a Black mob.

    This is why Whites behave in such a deferential matter with respect to racial issues.

    It’s FEAR of losing it all that keeps Whites in check.

    However, if you go back many decades ago (especially pre-60s), there were minimal (if any) penalties associated with racist speech. That’s why Whites used to advocate for their interests so forcefully back in the old days.

    Imagine you have a society full of religious Catholics. Then the Lutherans invade the country, decimate the Catholic Churches, and persecute all fervent Catholics. What would you expect to happen in such a society?

    3 things

    1. Mass conversion from Catholicism to Lutheranism.
    2. Ambitious people becoming especially likely to advocate Lutheran theology.
    3. Ordinary people becoming very hesitant to make any pro-Catholic or anti-Lutheran statements.

    Whites aren’t as foolish as everyone here perceives. By becoming “Woke” on racial issues, Whites are making a strategic decision that’s actually quite shrewd on an individual level.

    It may not be a shrewd decision on a group level, but you have to remember that Whites have no group solidarity left. They’ve become very individualistic and socially isolated from one another in recent times. They inhabit a social milieu that’s highly atomized. So Whites behave as individuals, not members of a group.

    Unfortunately, what makes sense on an individual level is harmful on a group level. It’s a prisoner’s dilemma.

    As to the question of why individual White leaders/activists don’t attempt to organize their population into a cohesive and united group, it’s because those individuals would be punished harshly. So would anyone who collaborated.

    You have to remember that the overwhelming majority of Whites are highly emasculated and effete these days, having been softened up by generations of comfort, affluence, and easy living. The average White no longer has any fight left in him. He just wants to enjoy life, have fun, eat out, go shopping, take vacations, watch sports ball, drink beer. He’s not looking to risk it all in some type of racial confrontation. So even if most Whites secretly hate PC, they’re not going to take a bullet fighting back.

    As to the question of why the ruling class is so fanatically hostile to Whites, it’s because Jews supplanted Anglo-Saxons decades ago. Once in power, the new Jewish elites began harshly persecuting Whites who advocated for White interests. At this point, the persecution is comically over the top.

    To be sure, there are many White Gentiles left in the elite, but they are kept in check through a combination of bribery, coercion, and Epstein-style sexual blackmail. For example, Bill Clinton.

    White Gentile elites are the outer party. Jewish elites are the inner party.

    Jewish elites know they need allies. So they stoke Black rage. They also promote an extreme amount of immigration into the US, then brainwash those immigrants (and more especially their kids) into becoming enemies of “White privilege.” Blacks and non-white immigrants have been turned into the fifth column of America.

    White racism is the Emmanuel Goldstein of our empire. Failure to condemn Goldstein in the harshest terms will result in punishment.

    Watch this clip below to better understand why so many Whites are so eager to fight White racism.

    Some have predicted that in the near future, a debt crisis will destroy our currency and cause the current regime to collapse. If that ever happens, then you will see the number of “Woke” Whites plummet dramatically. If there comes a time when Jews lose power, Whites will stop this racial self-flagellation very quickly. If there comes a day when Whites no longer have to fear being punished for being politically incorrect, you will see a massive change in how Whites discuss racial issues.

    FEAR of punishment keeps Whites in line.

    I disagree with your last paragraph. There are a lot of true believers: people who would literally prefer to sacrifice their own children to the mob than to be "racist." And even the more cynical proponents of wokeness will still wield it as long as it's valuable. And frankly I don't see the value of wokeness dropping to zero or even negative levels even during an economic collapse. In fact, wokeness would likely become especially important, in order to keep the mob at bay and sicc it on to other potential victims.

    well stated, the fear of punishment and desire to keep working are the main reason few will defend leftists like Prof. Seller who had so much angst over Blacks poor grades. The POC and Feminists, LGBTQ people outnumber white christians are are using their advantage to take the reigns of power away from whites in America one institution after another are falling victims to it.

    White Christians are already a minority , yet few realize it. The number of actual white Americans under the age of 60 appears to be about 57% of the US population. But the 57% number is misleading, as 10% of these "whites" are not Christians. Many of them are Muslim or Jewish and or not consider themselves white. Another 5% are LGTBQ or some other fringe group which are 100% behind the woke agenda.

    The people most fearful of being cancelled are those under the age of 45, because they are still trying to build a career or get a decent job. They also are the ones most indoctrinated and know how to weaponize woke ideology to get their co-workers blacklisted. Whites in this age group are vastly out-numbered by non-whites and stand little chance of winning if they try to defend fellow whites and take a huge risk of losing their jobs and being blacklisted.

    the number of people who benefit from cancel culture exceeds the white population , only 54% of the population under the age of 45 are whites and half of them are females who benefit from woke ideology and use it to cancel men like Gov. Cuomo. Those who benefit from cancel culture far outnumber the number of whites who are harmed by it.

    Sure, but this is not at all analogous to what's happening here. To work with your example, there's no invasion. The "lutherans" are 13% of the population and have been (roughly) for the past 100+ years.

    The "lutherans" have no direct power since their wealth, education and income are well below. Some of them can function fine in society but something like 50% of them are on a "means-tested assistance program" at least for some part of the year (1).

    Their direct power is to some street and inter-personal crime but that primarily is within their community and really is only allowed in measure of how the Catholics feel guilty holding them to modern standards and punishing them.

    The main reason anyone really talks about them is because of:

    ... “White [Catholic in the example] guilt.”
    ... "empathy.”
    ... “high mindedness.”
     
    Basically they serve as meditation objects for the Catholics (and to some degree as bludgeons in "Catholic" internecine doctrinal conflicts )

    The whole "invasion" thing could apply to Latinos, and there's some dysfunction and underperformance there too, but it pales in comparison with that of the underclass black segment.

  37. Ironically enough, a “Batson challenge” is when an attorney challenges the jury selection for not having enough blacks:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batson_v._Kentucky

    • Replies: @RadicalCenter
    @Dr. X

    Yes, a Batson challenge is a challenge to the other side using a “peremptory strike”* against a potential juror to keep him off the jury. But as you may know, it can be used, and is used, by criminal defendants of all races, not just blacks. Batson challenges can also be used to challenge a strike of a potential juror as irrationally or impermissibly discriminatory on the basis of sex, not just race.

    The party accused of striking a potential juror because of race, sex, or membership in some other protected class, must provide an explanation of the legitimate (non-discriminatory) reason for striking the potential juror.

    The accused lawyer must be able to point to something in the potential juror’s answers to a written questionnaire or to oral questioning at jury selection (“voir dire”) that allegedly caused that lawyer to believe that the stricken potential juror would be unable or unwilling to be objective and unbiased, or unable or unwilling to understand the law as explained / instructed by the judge.

    Batson challenges are going to get more complicated with a rapidly increasing number of people (like our children) belonging to more than one race. Moreover, judges and lawyers are of course afraid to even say someone is of a certain racial or ethnic background if he doesn’t identify as such.

    * Such strikes are now far from “peremptory” but the term is still used.

  38. @notsaying
    "Sure, Batson worried whether it was his “unconscious bias” that was causing blacks to perform poorly, but any response by a white short of calling in a drone strike on the other white is unacceptable."

    The part about the drone strike is so true. I was laughing out loud.

    I wonder how all the Black students who tried to get through Georgetown Law School but failed or who did but never passed the bar feel about this conversation? I am sure they are not laughing. Does it make them feel better to know that their constant and consistent struggles each and every semester were noted by Prof. Sellers and that it caused her angst? What do they find more upsetting, her words or the fact that they derailed with high student and nothing to show for it?

    If you're wondering why Whites are so timid about asserting their racial interests, there's a simple reason why.

    That reason is not "White guilt."
    That reason is not "empathy."
    That reason is not "high mindedness."

    That reason is FEAR.

    Whites know that if they say one wrong word, they could ruin their life instantaneously. Heck, just by failing to condemn racism in the strongest terms available, you can easily ruin your life.

    You can get fired from your job, financially ruined, slandered by the media, harassed on social media, and viewed as a pariah by mainstream society. In very serious cases, you can get subjected to violence from Anti-Fa and/or a Black mob.

    This is why Whites behave in such a deferential matter with respect to racial issues.

    It's FEAR of losing it all that keeps Whites in check.

    However, if you go back many decades ago (especially pre-60s), there were minimal (if any) penalties associated with racist speech. That's why Whites used to advocate for their interests so forcefully back in the old days.

    Imagine you have a society full of religious Catholics. Then the Lutherans invade the country, decimate the Catholic Churches, and persecute all fervent Catholics. What would you expect to happen in such a society?

    3 things

    1. Mass conversion from Catholicism to Lutheranism.
    2. Ambitious people becoming especially likely to advocate Lutheran theology.
    3. Ordinary people becoming very hesitant to make any pro-Catholic or anti-Lutheran statements.

    Whites aren't as foolish as everyone here perceives. By becoming "Woke" on racial issues, Whites are making a strategic decision that's actually quite shrewd on an individual level.

    It may not be a shrewd decision on a group level, but you have to remember that Whites have no group solidarity left. They've become very individualistic and socially isolated from one another in recent times. They inhabit a social milieu that's highly atomized. So Whites behave as individuals, not members of a group.

    Unfortunately, what makes sense on an individual level is harmful on a group level. It's a prisoner's dilemma.

    As to the question of why individual White leaders/activists don't attempt to organize their population into a cohesive and united group, it's because those individuals would be punished harshly. So would anyone who collaborated.

    You have to remember that the overwhelming majority of Whites are highly emasculated and effete these days, having been softened up by generations of comfort, affluence, and easy living. The average White no longer has any fight left in him. He just wants to enjoy life, have fun, eat out, go shopping, take vacations, watch sports ball, drink beer. He's not looking to risk it all in some type of racial confrontation. So even if most Whites secretly hate PC, they're not going to take a bullet fighting back.

    As to the question of why the ruling class is so fanatically hostile to Whites, it's because Jews supplanted Anglo-Saxons decades ago. Once in power, the new Jewish elites began harshly persecuting Whites who advocated for White interests. At this point, the persecution is comically over the top.

    To be sure, there are many White Gentiles left in the elite, but they are kept in check through a combination of bribery, coercion, and Epstein-style sexual blackmail. For example, Bill Clinton.

    White Gentile elites are the outer party. Jewish elites are the inner party.

    Jewish elites know they need allies. So they stoke Black rage. They also promote an extreme amount of immigration into the US, then brainwash those immigrants (and more especially their kids) into becoming enemies of "White privilege." Blacks and non-white immigrants have been turned into the fifth column of America.

    White racism is the Emmanuel Goldstein of our empire. Failure to condemn Goldstein in the harshest terms will result in punishment.

    Watch this clip below to better understand why so many Whites are so eager to fight White racism.

    Some have predicted that in the near future, a debt crisis will destroy our currency and cause the current regime to collapse. If that ever happens, then you will see the number of "Woke" Whites plummet dramatically. If there comes a time when Jews lose power, Whites will stop this racial self-flagellation very quickly. If there comes a day when Whites no longer have to fear being punished for being politically incorrect, you will see a massive change in how Whites discuss racial issues.

    FEAR of punishment keeps Whites in line.

    I disagree with your last paragraph. There are a lot of true believers: people who would literally prefer to sacrifice their own children to the mob than to be “racist.” And even the more cynical proponents of wokeness will still wield it as long as it’s valuable. And frankly I don’t see the value of wokeness dropping to zero or even negative levels even during an economic collapse. In fact, wokeness would likely become especially important, in order to keep the mob at bay and sicc it on to other potential victims.

    This is a general problem of having all these recordable technologies capturing "off the cuff" or "conversational" remarks.

    The take-home here is really that people--non-retired people dependent upon institutional support--should just avoid having these conversations on-line.

    But if someone does, it would sure be smart if they could at least be coherent, and hence have the "racist!" video be something that TPTB do not want to have repeatedly played as demonstration of their "racism".

    If she had said something like "Georgetown Law School's affirmative action program does not seem to either select black students capable of or prepare them for success with Georgetown Law level coursework", that would have been less likely to get played and replayed. Embarassing for Georgetown Law's black students and the school. And much easier for her to simply repeat and defend. Hey, i pointed out you have a problem--you do. And if they fire you over it anyway, because you're stated the issue reasonably clearly your firing brings public attention to the issue, you were complaining about, rather than their bogus claim of your "racism".

    If you're wondering why Whites are so timid about asserting their racial interests, there's a simple reason why.

    That reason is not "White guilt."
    That reason is not "empathy."
    That reason is not "high mindedness."

    That reason is FEAR.

    Whites know that if they say one wrong word, they could ruin their life instantaneously. Heck, just by failing to condemn racism in the strongest terms available, you can easily ruin your life.

    You can get fired from your job, financially ruined, slandered by the media, harassed on social media, and viewed as a pariah by mainstream society. In very serious cases, you can get subjected to violence from Anti-Fa and/or a Black mob.

    This is why Whites behave in such a deferential matter with respect to racial issues.

    It's FEAR of losing it all that keeps Whites in check.

    However, if you go back many decades ago (especially pre-60s), there were minimal (if any) penalties associated with racist speech. That's why Whites used to advocate for their interests so forcefully back in the old days.

    Imagine you have a society full of religious Catholics. Then the Lutherans invade the country, decimate the Catholic Churches, and persecute all fervent Catholics. What would you expect to happen in such a society?

    3 things

    1. Mass conversion from Catholicism to Lutheranism.
    2. Ambitious people becoming especially likely to advocate Lutheran theology.
    3. Ordinary people becoming very hesitant to make any pro-Catholic or anti-Lutheran statements.

    Whites aren't as foolish as everyone here perceives. By becoming "Woke" on racial issues, Whites are making a strategic decision that's actually quite shrewd on an individual level.

    It may not be a shrewd decision on a group level, but you have to remember that Whites have no group solidarity left. They've become very individualistic and socially isolated from one another in recent times. They inhabit a social milieu that's highly atomized. So Whites behave as individuals, not members of a group.

    Unfortunately, what makes sense on an individual level is harmful on a group level. It's a prisoner's dilemma.

    As to the question of why individual White leaders/activists don't attempt to organize their population into a cohesive and united group, it's because those individuals would be punished harshly. So would anyone who collaborated.

    You have to remember that the overwhelming majority of Whites are highly emasculated and effete these days, having been softened up by generations of comfort, affluence, and easy living. The average White no longer has any fight left in him. He just wants to enjoy life, have fun, eat out, go shopping, take vacations, watch sports ball, drink beer. He's not looking to risk it all in some type of racial confrontation. So even if most Whites secretly hate PC, they're not going to take a bullet fighting back.

    As to the question of why the ruling class is so fanatically hostile to Whites, it's because Jews supplanted Anglo-Saxons decades ago. Once in power, the new Jewish elites began harshly persecuting Whites who advocated for White interests. At this point, the persecution is comically over the top.

    To be sure, there are many White Gentiles left in the elite, but they are kept in check through a combination of bribery, coercion, and Epstein-style sexual blackmail. For example, Bill Clinton.

    White Gentile elites are the outer party. Jewish elites are the inner party.

    Jewish elites know they need allies. So they stoke Black rage. They also promote an extreme amount of immigration into the US, then brainwash those immigrants (and more especially their kids) into becoming enemies of "White privilege." Blacks and non-white immigrants have been turned into the fifth column of America.

    White racism is the Emmanuel Goldstein of our empire. Failure to condemn Goldstein in the harshest terms will result in punishment.

    Watch this clip below to better understand why so many Whites are so eager to fight White racism.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvGmOZ5T6_Y

    Some have predicted that in the near future, a debt crisis will destroy our currency and cause the current regime to collapse. If that ever happens, then you will see the number of "Woke" Whites plummet dramatically. If there comes a time when Jews lose power, Whites will stop this racial self-flagellation very quickly. If there comes a day when Whites no longer have to fear being punished for being politically incorrect, you will see a massive change in how Whites discuss racial issues.

    FEAR of punishment keeps Whites in line.

    Replies: @AndrewR, @HammerJack, @Travis, @vhrm, @anon

    well stated, the fear of punishment and desire to keep working are the main reason few will defend leftists like Prof. Seller who had so much angst over Blacks poor grades. The POC and Feminists, LGBTQ people outnumber white christians are are using their advantage to take the reigns of power away from whites in America one institution after another are falling victims to it.

    White Christians are already a minority , yet few realize it. The number of actual white Americans under the age of 60 appears to be about 57% of the US population. But the 57% number is misleading, as 10% of these “whites” are not Christians. Many of them are Muslim or Jewish and or not consider themselves white. Another 5% are LGTBQ or some other fringe group which are 100% behind the woke agenda.

    The people most fearful of being cancelled are those under the age of 45, because they are still trying to build a career or get a decent job. They also are the ones most indoctrinated and know how to weaponize woke ideology to get their co-workers blacklisted. Whites in this age group are vastly out-numbered by non-whites and stand little chance of winning if they try to defend fellow whites and take a huge risk of losing their jobs and being blacklisted.

    the number of people who benefit from cancel culture exceeds the white population , only 54% of the population under the age of 45 are whites and half of them are females who benefit from woke ideology and use it to cancel men like Gov. Cuomo. Those who benefit from cancel culture far outnumber the number of whites who are harmed by it.

    The incredible pace of demographic change is important to keep in mind.

    Most of what we have now--what makes the US nice--was built either before or by the 90% white Boomers. But most Boomers are now either dead (a quarter) or retired (a third). Their Millennial and post-Millennial replacements are much more people-of-colorish cohorts. And while a substantial import of Asians, overall far less capable and conscientious peoples.

    Basically our population has Latino-zied and shifted closer toward something like Brazil--a less black, more white and Asian version of Brazil, but more "Brazilian" nonetheless. Middle income countries like Mexico or Brazil are not hell-holes, but their GPD per capita--even in PPP terms--is still only a quarter to a third of the US.

    The minoritarian/Democrat program seems to be "more looting!" But as the coalition-of-looting they've assembled gets ever larger, and ever less productive ... at some point there simply isn't nearly enough loot available to loot.

    , @JohnnyWalker123
    @Travis

    You make a good point about demographics.

    When the beneficiaries of an ideology outnumber those who are being punished, it'll be particularly difficult to fight back. Broadening the anti-White coalition to include immigrants and even certain liberal Whites (women, LGBTs) is strategically astute.

    With that being said, all of the above is contingent on the (((ruling))) class being able to keep everybody happy by handing over cushy jobs and maintaining generous govt programs. If the US economy should ever collapse, then the (((ruling class))) won't be able to hand out goodies. In that particular case, immigrants and liberal Whites will jump ship quickly. Blacks will maintain their hostility to Whites, as their hostility is organic and not based on any artificial incentives.

    So then it'll be Jews&Blacks vs Right-Wing White Gentiles. Everyone else (immigrants, liberals) will just sit it out and watch.

    Sure, but this is not at all analogous to what’s happening here. To work with your example, there’s no invasion. The “lutherans” are 13% of the population and have been (roughly) for the past 100+ years.

    The “lutherans” have no direct power since their wealth, education and income are well below. Some of them can function fine in society but something like 50% of them are on a “means-tested assistance program” at least for some part of the year (1).

    Their direct power is to some street and inter-personal crime but that primarily is within their community and really is only allowed in measure of how the Catholics feel guilty holding them to modern standards and punishing them.

    The main reason anyone really talks about them is because of:

    … “White [Catholic in the example] guilt.”
    … “empathy.”
    … “high mindedness.”

    Basically they serve as meditation objects for the Catholics (and to some degree as bludgeons in “Catholic” internecine doctrinal conflicts )

    The whole “invasion” thing could apply to Latinos, and there’s some dysfunction and underperformance there too, but it pales in comparison with that of the underclass black segment.

    40 years ago this would not have happened, not because of racism, but because colleges were cheap. If you didn’t like the profs, you went to another school or dropped out and got a job. Nowadays, because colleges are expensive, and that 60K or so you’re paying for tuition gives you the power to get profs fired for teeny, tiny nano-offenses. Or so college administrators think.

    Anyone smart enough to be teaching at a top-14 law school — even as an adjunct — ought to be sufficiently astute to come up with an answer like that.
     
    This is a general problem of having all these recordable technologies capturing "off the cuff" or "conversational" remarks.

    The take-home here is really that people--non-retired people dependent upon institutional support--should just avoid having these conversations on-line.

    But if someone does, it would sure be smart if they could at least be coherent, and hence have the "racist!" video be something that TPTB do not want to have repeatedly played as demonstration of their "racism".

    If she had said something like "Georgetown Law School's affirmative action program does not seem to either select black students capable of or prepare them for success with Georgetown Law level coursework", that would have been less likely to get played and replayed. Embarassing for Georgetown Law's black students and the school. And much easier for her to simply repeat and defend. Hey, i pointed out you have a problem--you do. And if they fire you over it anyway, because you're stated the issue reasonably clearly your firing brings public attention to the issue, you were complaining about, rather than their bogus claim of your "racism".

    It may be hard for most Unz readers to understand how effective the Upper-Class media is at maintaining Americans’ ignorance of the white-black talent gap among law students. It’s unpleasant, and goes unsaid — so it must be untrue.

    Why Is the White-Black Gap So Huge in Law Schools?, March 16, 2018

    If you're wondering why Whites are so timid about asserting their racial interests, there's a simple reason why.

    That reason is not "White guilt."
    That reason is not "empathy."
    That reason is not "high mindedness."

    That reason is FEAR.

    Whites know that if they say one wrong word, they could ruin their life instantaneously. Heck, just by failing to condemn racism in the strongest terms available, you can easily ruin your life.

    You can get fired from your job, financially ruined, slandered by the media, harassed on social media, and viewed as a pariah by mainstream society. In very serious cases, you can get subjected to violence from Anti-Fa and/or a Black mob.

    This is why Whites behave in such a deferential matter with respect to racial issues.

    It's FEAR of losing it all that keeps Whites in check.

    However, if you go back many decades ago (especially pre-60s), there were minimal (if any) penalties associated with racist speech. That's why Whites used to advocate for their interests so forcefully back in the old days.

    Imagine you have a society full of religious Catholics. Then the Lutherans invade the country, decimate the Catholic Churches, and persecute all fervent Catholics. What would you expect to happen in such a society?

    3 things

    1. Mass conversion from Catholicism to Lutheranism.
    2. Ambitious people becoming especially likely to advocate Lutheran theology.
    3. Ordinary people becoming very hesitant to make any pro-Catholic or anti-Lutheran statements.

    Whites aren't as foolish as everyone here perceives. By becoming "Woke" on racial issues, Whites are making a strategic decision that's actually quite shrewd on an individual level.

    It may not be a shrewd decision on a group level, but you have to remember that Whites have no group solidarity left. They've become very individualistic and socially isolated from one another in recent times. They inhabit a social milieu that's highly atomized. So Whites behave as individuals, not members of a group.

    Unfortunately, what makes sense on an individual level is harmful on a group level. It's a prisoner's dilemma.

    As to the question of why individual White leaders/activists don't attempt to organize their population into a cohesive and united group, it's because those individuals would be punished harshly. So would anyone who collaborated.

    You have to remember that the overwhelming majority of Whites are highly emasculated and effete these days, having been softened up by generations of comfort, affluence, and easy living. The average White no longer has any fight left in him. He just wants to enjoy life, have fun, eat out, go shopping, take vacations, watch sports ball, drink beer. He's not looking to risk it all in some type of racial confrontation. So even if most Whites secretly hate PC, they're not going to take a bullet fighting back.

    As to the question of why the ruling class is so fanatically hostile to Whites, it's because Jews supplanted Anglo-Saxons decades ago. Once in power, the new Jewish elites began harshly persecuting Whites who advocated for White interests. At this point, the persecution is comically over the top.

    To be sure, there are many White Gentiles left in the elite, but they are kept in check through a combination of bribery, coercion, and Epstein-style sexual blackmail. For example, Bill Clinton.

    White Gentile elites are the outer party. Jewish elites are the inner party.

    Jewish elites know they need allies. So they stoke Black rage. They also promote an extreme amount of immigration into the US, then brainwash those immigrants (and more especially their kids) into becoming enemies of "White privilege." Blacks and non-white immigrants have been turned into the fifth column of America.

    White racism is the Emmanuel Goldstein of our empire. Failure to condemn Goldstein in the harshest terms will result in punishment.

    Watch this clip below to better understand why so many Whites are so eager to fight White racism.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvGmOZ5T6_Y

    Some have predicted that in the near future, a debt crisis will destroy our currency and cause the current regime to collapse. If that ever happens, then you will see the number of "Woke" Whites plummet dramatically. If there comes a time when Jews lose power, Whites will stop this racial self-flagellation very quickly. If there comes a day when Whites no longer have to fear being punished for being politically incorrect, you will see a massive change in how Whites discuss racial issues.

    FEAR of punishment keeps Whites in line.

    well stated, the fear of punishment and desire to keep working are the main reason few will defend leftists like Prof. Seller who had so much angst over Blacks poor grades. The POC and Feminists, LGBTQ people outnumber white christians are are using their advantage to take the reigns of power away from whites in America one institution after another are falling victims to it.

    White Christians are already a minority , yet few realize it. The number of actual white Americans under the age of 60 appears to be about 57% of the US population. But the 57% number is misleading, as 10% of these "whites" are not Christians. Many of them are Muslim or Jewish and or not consider themselves white. Another 5% are LGTBQ or some other fringe group which are 100% behind the woke agenda.

    The people most fearful of being cancelled are those under the age of 45, because they are still trying to build a career or get a decent job. They also are the ones most indoctrinated and know how to weaponize woke ideology to get their co-workers blacklisted. Whites in this age group are vastly out-numbered by non-whites and stand little chance of winning if they try to defend fellow whites and take a huge risk of losing their jobs and being blacklisted.

    the number of people who benefit from cancel culture exceeds the white population , only 54% of the population under the age of 45 are whites and half of them are females who benefit from woke ideology and use it to cancel men like Gov. Cuomo. Those who benefit from cancel culture far outnumber the number of whites who are harmed by it.

    Replies: @AnotherDad, @JohnnyWalker123

    You make a good point about demographics.

    When the beneficiaries of an ideology outnumber those who are being punished, it’ll be particularly difficult to fight back. Broadening the anti-White coalition to include immigrants and even certain liberal Whites (women, LGBTs) is strategically astute.

    With that being said, all of the above is contingent on the (((ruling))) class being able to keep everybody happy by handing over cushy jobs and maintaining generous govt programs. If the US economy should ever collapse, then the (((ruling class))) won’t be able to hand out goodies. In that particular case, immigrants and liberal Whites will jump ship quickly. Blacks will maintain their hostility to Whites, as their hostility is organic and not based on any artificial incentives.

    So then it’ll be Jews&Blacks vs Right-Wing White Gentiles. Everyone else (immigrants, liberals) will just sit it out and watch.

    The fed will just keep printing billions of dollars per day , as we have been doing. Then they will means-test Social security and raid all the 401k accounts to keep the government funded. White people still own plenty of assets which can be looted to keep the government functioning for many decades to come. The value of the dollar will continue to erode, so Americans standard of living will continue to decline. We may not face a big economic collapse, it could be a 50 year decline in our standard of living, during which time the white population will decline to under 40% of the US population. Then the US may eventually just default on the trillions in debt. Hard to predict when we will eventually default...but until then there will be plenty of looting of white wealth and continued printing of money to pay government employees and the military.

    Demographics guarantees that the woke will continue to have the power over whites. They have the numbers today and the number of whites is in decline. The white population peaked in 2015 and has declined over the last decade. The decline in the number of whites is just starting to get noticed. The 2020 census will be the first census in which the white population fell from the previous census. The decline of the white population is just starting, and will accelerate over the next decade. The median age of whites in America is 45 while the median age for non-whites is 30. This trend is also accelerating. By 2040 the woke will be advocating for euthanasia for those over the age of 80 to save social security. This will mostly effect whites. But most whites will go along, as we see the white suicide rates escalating to record highs over the last few years. Most elderly men will choose suicide over being in a nursing home staffed with Africans.

    Seriously, it's going to get to the point where the best minds will decide that teaching snowflakes with that much power is more trouble than it's worth. The quality of American college educations will decline when all the teachers are like the old Soviet Stalinist profs--expert and toeing the party line and changing their opinions with the wind.

    40 years ago this would not have happened, not because of racism, but because colleges were cheap. If you didn't like the profs, you went to another school or dropped out and got a job. Nowadays, because colleges are expensive, and that 60K or so you're paying for tuition gives you the power to get profs fired for teeny, tiny nano-offenses. Or so college administrators think.

    Right now, there's intense pressure to get into colleges. There are more students applying than ever, a ton of international students paying full tuition, and even parents trying to bribe their way in. Remember the Lori Loughlin case? Colleges actually have the whip hand here, not the students, but administrators are all SJW ninnies, so they don't realize this.

    Now I can’t even listen to music by blacks, watch tv or movies featuring blacks - I recently moved to a small Midwestern city with practically zero blacks, and all these new helpful identifications of “black-owned businesses” just let me know where NOT to spend a dime of my money.

    You make a good point about demographics.

    When the beneficiaries of an ideology outnumber those who are being punished, it'll be particularly difficult to fight back. Broadening the anti-White coalition to include immigrants and even certain liberal Whites (women, LGBTs) is strategically astute.

    With that being said, all of the above is contingent on the (((ruling))) class being able to keep everybody happy by handing over cushy jobs and maintaining generous govt programs. If the US economy should ever collapse, then the (((ruling class))) won't be able to hand out goodies. In that particular case, immigrants and liberal Whites will jump ship quickly. Blacks will maintain their hostility to Whites, as their hostility is organic and not based on any artificial incentives.

    So then it'll be Jews&Blacks vs Right-Wing White Gentiles. Everyone else (immigrants, liberals) will just sit it out and watch.

    Ironically enough, a "Batson challenge" is when an attorney challenges the jury selection for not having enough blacks:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batson_v._Kentucky

    Replies: @RadicalCenter

    Yes, a Batson challenge is a challenge to the other side using a “peremptory strike”* against a potential juror to keep him off the jury. But as you may know, it can be used, and is used, by criminal defendants of all races, not just blacks. Batson challenges can also be used to challenge a strike of a potential juror as irrationally or impermissibly discriminatory on the basis of sex, not just race.

    The party accused of striking a potential juror because of race, sex, or membership in some other protected class, must provide an explanation of the legitimate (non-discriminatory) reason for striking the potential juror.

    The accused lawyer must be able to point to something in the potential juror’s answers to a written questionnaire or to oral questioning at jury selection (“voir dire”) that allegedly caused that lawyer to believe that the stricken potential juror would be unable or unwilling to be objective and unbiased, or unable or unwilling to understand the law as explained / instructed by the judge.

    Batson challenges are going to get more complicated with a rapidly increasing number of people (like our children) belonging to more than one race. Moreover, judges and lawyers are of course afraid to even say someone is of a certain racial or ethnic background if he doesn’t identify as such.

  140. I have not read any of the comments on these profs, but I think a big part of why law schools do not want blacks’ poor performance known is that they want blacks to continue applying, matriculating to improve their racial stats, and graduating to boost the professions racial stats. The fact that blacks more frequently cannot pass the bar, though Georgetown graduates can (probably?) hit that bar, and then get AA gigs, become ambulance chasers, or move on to another field more in line with their talents, is of no concern to the schools.

    They want that black gold flowing into their schools. Without it, lawyers and the law have a serious image problem. Blacks already lean towards thinking laws are a conspiracy to oppress them. If 1-2% of lawyers were black? You can see how blacks would think laws are made against them, not for them. Heck, in a lot of cases, they are right.

  141. It strikes me that the poor performance of black students in a particular teacher/professors class(es), the underperformance of the black students in a principal’s school, or a superintendents district is a general-purpose ready-made reason for a principal, school board, etc to get rid of peopke they dislike for personal or professional reasons. It is the educational equivalent of ‘5 felonies a day (or however many) that the average American commits, and that the feds can charge someone with, should they have the desire.

    While there may be a couple of schools that cannot educate blacks or people, every single class of every single teacher that has black ‘students,’ has underperforming black students. If a teacher anticipates the admins moving against her, and dishonestly increases blacks’ grades, there are always standardized tests for the blacks to fail.

    If, for some reason, the media wanted to punish a teacher/principal, they could point to her decades of failure to teach blacks. No one would dare point out, either on tv or in pixels, that every teacher of every fails to educate blacks. It is one of many pieces of evidence that black IQ is 1.1 +/- 0.2 standard deviations lower than whites’.

    Can you imagine anyone going on tv to say that black IQ is lower, so that teacher (and every other) simply could not educate the blacks well? He’d be looking at instant cancellation and a lifetime of being followed by an antifa chorus.

    It is true that people should be evaluated as individuals and if we left it at that we'd have no problem.

    However, when looking at things like LSAT scores and also performance in school one notices that the AVERAGE performance for black students is considerably lower.

    That too would be fine. Just treat every individual fairly and don't worry about it.

    However, the woke say NO! To whatever degree those average performances differ it is because of anti-black racism and systems must be changed and people fired until those gaps disappear!

    THIS is when it's relevant to point out that the gaps are NOT because of racism but primarily because of "Black/White [AVERAGE] cognitive ability differential". Some 60 years of trying to eliminate the gaps haven't done so and knowing what we know from IQ research there's no theoretical basis to believe that it is something that CAN ever be done.

    Except for the actual race supremacists (and... to some degree when considering a choice of mate and the concept of "regression to different means") it is not about treating individuals unfairly.

    I find it interesting that someone in her position doesn’t know how to use better coded language to describe the situation.

    What would be better language?

    Such as what? She seemed very compassionate already.

    "Sure, but when you evaluate 10,000,000 different individuals on the same capability using science, you tend to learn a few things. Like mean and variance in the capability, just for a start."

    The standard is 1 individual. The Constitution is about individuals. Rights apply to individuals. Not groups.

    That BLM doesn't get that, and Democrats support them, changes nothing.

    We are individuals, each with different capabilities. “Black/White cognitive ability differential” is racist schtick. Group politics is evil.

    It is true that people should be evaluated as individuals and if we left it at that we’d have no problem.

    However, when looking at things like LSAT scores and also performance in school one notices that the AVERAGE performance for black students is considerably lower.

    That too would be fine. Just treat every individual fairly and don’t worry about it.

    However, the woke say NO! To whatever degree those average performances differ it is because of anti-black racism and systems must be changed and people fired until those gaps disappear!

    THIS is when it’s relevant to point out that the gaps are NOT because of racism but primarily because of “Black/White [AVERAGE] cognitive ability differential”. Some 60 years of trying to eliminate the gaps haven’t done so and knowing what we know from IQ research there’s no theoretical basis to believe that it is something that CAN ever be done.

    Except for the actual race supremacists (and… to some degree when considering a choice of mate and the concept of “regression to different means”) it is not about treating individuals unfairly.

    The counter-reaction is going to be unpleasant. I wouldn’t be surprised if blacks are confronted with a barrage of real racism once other people get fed-up with being censored and hectored. It’s likely to happen when the white and woke realize that they’ve created a monster and it turns on them, and that there’s no point in caring about what they say anymore.

    Read Taleeb Starke’s book “The Uncivil War.” You’ll judge people individually afterwards (and you should).
