For years, we’ve been wondering if any authorities will ever officially document exactly who is on top in terms of diversity Pokemon Points. Clearly, cisgender straight white males are at the bottom, but among the privileged, who outranks whom?

From UniversityOfCalifornia.edu:

So, don’t put down your race as “Unknown.” They hate wiseguys like you and will relegate you to even lower than the White/Caucasian untermenschen.

I believe this table was especially used for those tricky people who are of more than one ancestry. If a U. of California applicant was, say, Black (#1) and Other Asian (#12), would he outrank an applicant who was Mexican (#2) and American-Indian (#4)?

Yes. The highest card in your Diversity hand determines where you rank, no matter what other cards you hold. Blacks are supreme, so a claim to hold any degree of Blackness defeats any combination of cards that don’t include the Black trump card.

Keep in mind that racial preferences are unconstitutional in California government operations, such as the University of California system, since 1996’s Proposition 209. But who cares about the law?

Since 2010, the following ranking applies:

Individuals are asked to provide “Which of the following groups best describes your background. Check as many categories as may apply”.

In the following list, the italicized headings indicate the reporting category. The bold headings represent the categories listed on the Undergraduate Application. The bullets represent the choices available.

While interesting Whites/Caucasians like Yemenis and Libyans are at least listed above the line, European untermenschen are isolated down in the lower right corner.

  1. The first list is a precidence order for reporting. If the student reporter two or more races before 2010, the system was set up to record only one.

    In this context, it makes logical sense for unknown to come in behind every other race. It does strongly imply pokemon points for every other race, however.

    There is also apparently no value in distinction between an Icelander and a Chechen or any European ethnicity. But it’s important to record how many Circassians there are. Reminds of the passive-aggressive justification of not upper-casing ‘white’ because apparently it relates to people originating from a ‘handful’ of countries.

    Interesting how Georgians got out of the ‘European’ blob. I guess Circassians get out from being muslim and Azeris can be counted as ‘Turkic’ or Turkish speaking Persians in addition to being muslims. Armenians too aren’t really white. But Georgians?

    I’m going to out myself on this one. What the hell does “Pokemon Point” mean? Pokemon do not have some sort of single numerical stat that determines their value. They have several stats and passive modifiers, type relationships, attack build outs, that determine their situational usefulness. Volumes have been written on this, mostly on Smogon and /vp/. Frankly, I’m shocked that Steve hasn’t expanded his sports reporting repertoire to include Pokemon Showdown. Even the question of banning Dynamaxing in OU had deep political implications for the future of post-Brexit Britain.

    Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are not geographically not in Europe. It’s amazing how many people think they are.

    I notice that Israel is correctly listed as an Asian nation. The best strategy for exposing Jewish power and privilege in America is to emphasize that Jews are an Asiatic, Middle Eastern people and not European. We on the dissident right need to push hard for a Middle Eastern/North African census category and for Jews to be disaggregated from Europeans in all statistics and classifications.

  33. During my military career of over 25 years, I checked “Native American” on every form and survey (and there were a LOT of them). Yes, I’m White, but I am Native born and American, and the indigenous people of this continent did not create “America” so they don’t really rate the title. When they switched to “Indigenous” I went to “White’ (which used to be “Caucasian”).

  34. Since the Summer of Floyd there’s been a major shift in the Oppression Index. For years Muslims were at the very top; every instance of Muslims clashing with other oppressed groups (Pulse Nightclub, grooming gangs, etc) gave precedence to Muslims. Now it’s clear that blacks are at the top as they are a sacred race in Wokeism. They’ve done a good job reasserting themselves as the prized minority of the US, which I’m sure the ascendant hispanics are not crazy about.

    Here’s the list as I have it now. We’ll see where Muslims really lay in the days following the decapitation of a French teacher for showing a picture of Muhammad:
    Blacks
    Muslims
    Transgenders
    Women
    Gays
    Natives
    Hispanics
    Indians
    Asians
    Whites

    Asians actually were higher in February and March when our Woke Priests determined through revelation that covid was a racist conspiracy theory against Asians, but as the real virus of Racism has gripped the nation Asians are back near the bottom. Hispanics have dropped because the media has been working really hard to make a winning issue like immigration nonexistent in the public discourse around the election. As always, jews aren’t even on the list because they’re simultaneously at the top and bottom (they also decide the rankings to begin with). If I forgot anyone (Eskimos, Polynesians, Australian abos) they probably aren’t significant enough in the US to warrant a ranking from Wokeism, but you can just put them above whites.

  35. Fixing our ethnic bean counting–which squeezes heritage whites, between affirmative action NAMs and Asians and Jews–is another project that Trump engage with quickly enough. (Not being intellectually oriented it’s probably something he’s never thought much about.)

    A couple glaring issues.

    1) The “Hispanic” mess.
    We’re got a single ethnic category “Hispanic” for a category of people who have little to do with the historic American name. It’s meant to be some sort of quasi racial thingy to enable Hispanic affirmative action looing … but also to have it both ways.

    2) The bogus “Asian” race category.
    The bogus “Asian” category crosses a couple starkly different races–with no purpose but to unite them in anti-whiteness–while at the same time letting them have separate ethnic/nation-origin categories denied whites.

    The fix:

    1) Have real–and sufficient–racial categories.
    You start with the three biggies and expand out. But also have the specific mixed categories–mestizo and mulatto that describe millions of people here.

    2) Then have ethnic categories for everyone.
    Ethnic, and national origin, categories for everyone not just “Hispanics” and “Asians”. And specifically have a separate “Jewish” ethnic category along with all the other obvious ones and generic “American White” and “American Black”.

    Right now white gentiles are being squeezed by this scam. Minoritarianism demands affirmative action for everyone performing worse than a white gentile. But then whites are in “meriocratic” competition against Asians and Jews. You look at the student body of Harvard or Yale and the actually “underrepresented” group is flyover country white gentiles. (My guess is the Scots-Irish who’ve been at the forefront in fighting America’s wars.) Calling Jews “white” and then pretending their economic position–or even more laughably their opinions–are representative of a mostly Irish guy in Boston, or a German-American farmer in Iowa or a good ol’ boy from Pigsknuckle Arkansas is a joke.

    Minoritarianism–through both immigrationism and diversity-is-our-strengthism has jacked up the ethnic scuffling. If we’re going to have a scrum for ethnic spoils … white people get to scrum too.

    What the hell does “Pokemon Point” mean? Pokemon do not have some sort of single numerical stat that determines their value.

    Since you brought it up… I also don’t get this usage for that same reason and i cringe a little whenever
    see it. Not only is there not a single “power” value for Pokemon, neither do they become ranked strictly by any attribute or class-membership they have or acquire. I.e. it’s not like “ice” pokemon are at the bottom and then “ice” + “lightning” are higher, “ice” + “lightning” + “dark” are above that etc. (my familiarity with the system is low so don’t kick me if i get the details wrong).

    Like D.H. Lawrence, James Dickey is a much finer poet than novelist, though both are much better known for their fiction. In addition to those you mention, “The Sheep Child” and “Bums on Waking” are two other superb poems of his. I remember the opening of his novel “Alnilam” being really amazing, but I don’t think that was his natural form.

    On a different matter, not to prolong controversy but I disagreed with the substance as well as the manner of your dismissal of Polanski’s “Chinatown” in response to @Lace

    I just watched it again a few months ago for the first time in some years, but I really think it’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I would put it up there with “Andrei Rublev.” I could go on at length about how and why I find it so alluring, but honestly these “personal canon” style arguments are the ultimate dead end. Take a look at the absurd list that the Jewish mountebank and pedagogical mesmerist Harold Bloom appended to the end of his grotesque and insulting travesty “The Western Canon” if you want to see this tendency in a kind of clinical isolation.

    What happens if you are South Asian but you put down Black? Do you get punished?

    With one absurd exception, if you’re from Spain.

    People from Portugal also seem to be getting nonwhite treatment these days. Interestingly, I’ve known many Portuguese people and they are the only Europeans who sometimes actually do look vaguely nonwhite.

  79. I think fondly of simpler times when it was just Negroid, Caucasoid and Mongoloid.

    So ceteris paribus – SAT, character, whatever – select the white last.

    Thanks.

    Yes. The highest card in your Diversity hand determines where you rank, no matter what other cards you hold. Blacks are supreme

    Male homosexuals outrank blacks by a wide margin. And trannies outrank homosexuals.

    Lesbians are in an entirely different category. Lesbians are very low on the totem pole if they’re Nazi bigots who are biological women who like having sex with other biological women.

    Race is no longer the big issue.

    And BLM is an LGBT lobby group.

    Chicano means cheater in Spanish

    It’s short for “Mexicano.”

    What if 150 million patriotic Americans, who control most of the land mass and resources of our nation, decide we’ll just continue Western Civilization and America as we created it and as we like it?

    Once again it’s the conservative Silent Majority delusion, the belief that there’s still a majority of white God-fearing commie-hating socially conservative patriots out there. There are still some but I’d be very surprised if there’s anywhere near 150 million. The actual number might be closer to 50 million.

    And out of those 50 million only a very small minority would be prepared to take the risks involved in the sort of plan you’re proposing. A very small minority indeed.

    LGBT as white liberal power

    The LGBT thing can be seen as a way in which white liberals maintain their dominant position in the Coalition of the Fringes. If you’re a young white liberal hoping for advancement in the Democratic Party or as a political activist or you’re hoping for a successful career in academia you have a problem – all that white privilege.

    But actually it’s no problem at all. All you have to do is announce that you identify as bisexual and you’re reasonably safe. If you decide that doesn’t give you enough victim points you just announce that you’re not gender binary. And lo and behold all that toxic white privilege is washed away. If anyone tries to play the white privilege card against you you simply play the homophobia or transphobia cards (which outrank the white privilege card).

    The great thing is you don’t even need to get your dick chopped off (or your vagina sewn up). You just have to say you’re not gender binary. If anyone raises questions about it then you play the homophobia/transphobia cards.

    LGBT is a wonderful way for white liberals to portray themselves as the biggest victims of all. All those centuries of homophobic oppression!

    I was hoping I’d find you soon–got Caracole in the mail yesterday and will read it this week–a big hardcover edition with almost no appearance of ‘prior use’ for $6 including shipping; I was willing to settle for unlimited *dog-eared* paperback since before covid this would have been so easy to get from NYPL.

    How could it happen that you’d be giving me my reading list? Because I’m answering this post because you think D. H. Lawrence’s poems are better than his novels. So typical of me not to know they even existed, although he is one of my 3 or 4 most-loved novelists. There’s just nobody else like him. In the same way, I played Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Chopin without knowing almost anything of their lives–and not knowing nearly all of Haydn (and still don’t.) Therefore, of course I can look them up, but I thought I would just drop in here to see if you recommended any particular editions I should get. If they can be better than The Rainbow, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Sons and Lovers, and Kangaroo.

    I chat with someone who just adores Mme. Sontag, so I told him I wouldn’t tell him what this new Edmund White discovery was till I’d read it.

    The one thing I most disagreed with Joan Didion on in her writer preferences was D.H. Lawrence, but it must be because she can write with great sensuosity (especially the essays in The White Album, where she makes all that dark, constantly hoodlum-threatened Hollywood house somehow something you want to know every detail of–or I did, and asked her about it at a reading in early 2001), but not sensuality. I read what she said, but have forgotten it, and I think she knows she cannot do that and never could (and I don’t mean just the high-explicit sex in Lady Chatterley’s Lover, of course. Frankly, there are parts of The Rainbow that are unlike anything I ever read anywhere.) It’s likely that she finds him ‘sentimental’, sort of like the way she wrote in one of the After Henry essays “When I came to live in Los Angeles, I began to find narrative sentimental.” That’s a Joannie sentence if ever there was one. You find great things in the other titans Proust and Joyce, but they are not this Lawrence thing. Didion likes Mary McCarthy, Flannery O’Connor, Norman Mailer, Don Delillo. I do too, but I can definitely see why she doesn’t like Lawrence and I love his novels–and not only now the poetry, but there are a couple of the novels I haven’t even gotten to. Talking about this will make me do that.

    Thank you in advance. Frankly, it’s nearly impossible to imagine they’re greater, but it’s wonderful to know that they will be, in fact. If you have time, please do include recommendations of James Dickey, of whom I have read nothing.

    Very best–Lace

    Male homosexuals outrank blacks by a wide margin. And trannies outrank homosexuals.

    Hmm… i believe you’re mistaken here. 15 or 20 years ago, maybe, but even then white gay guys were considered the oppressors of the LGBT world “oppressing” both POC gay guys and LBTs.

    Once trans (and non-binary and such) really took off gay guys became boring and unhip. Then BLM came and put even more focus on race.
    Now, a random gay white guy is prob. only about as diverse as a white woman.

  89. Well if as the “scientists” insist we are ALL “out of Africa”, then isn’t the correct choice “African” for EVERYBODY???

    If you want to win at Victimhood Pokemon it is helpful to hold more than one card. That’s what intersectionality is all about! But the tranny card is the single most powerful card of all.

    And try being a heterosexual black who says something negative about homosexuals.

    White heterosexual women are absolutely at the bottom of the victimhood totem pole. They rank way below male homosexuals. That’s what metoo was all about – it was a desperate attempt by white feminists to regain some of their lost power.

    It’s not all about race. The whole point of intersectionality was to increase the LGBT lobby’s dominance.
