Face it: in Post-George Floyd America, all standards once attempting to maintain civilization are being replaced because they perpetuated “institutional racism.”

There is no defense when one suggests “institutional racism” is the reason behind black individuals collectively being denied admission into a segment of society they are denied because of standards your average white person can achieve.

To implement racial justice and social equity, all standards once protecting civilization must go. [NCAA task force recommends removing minimum standardized test scores in effort to advance racial equity,, October 16, 2021]:

An NCAA task force recommended on Friday that incoming freshmen in Division I and II sports should no longer be required to meet minimum scores on standardized tests for initial eligibility.

The recommendation was made by the NCAA Standardized Test Score Task Force, which was formed as part of the NCAA’s eight-point plan to advance racial equity. The Division I Committee on Academics and Division II Academic Requirements Committee will consider the recommendation at their next scheduled meetings in February. Changes to initial-eligibility requirements would also have to be reviewed and made through each division’s legislative process.

“This work reflects the NCAA’s commitment to continually reviewing our academic standards based on the best available data and other relevant information,” task force chairman David Wilson, president at Morgan State, said in an NCAA release. “We are observing a national trend in NCAA member schools moving away from requiring standardized test scores for admissions purposes and this recommendation for athletics eligibility aligns directly with that movement.”

In the release, the NCAA said the task force consulted with several groups, including the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, the National Association for College Admission Counseling, and Division I and II member schools, as well as the testing agencies, specifically the ACT and College Board, which administers the SAT.

In July 2020, the National Association of Basketball Coaches called for the NCAA to permanently eliminate standardized test scores from eligibility requirements.

“The days of colleges requiring the SAT or ACT are passing rapidly: more than half of all four-year colleges and universities will not require these tests for admissions in 2021, and more are dropping the requirement every week,” the NABC said in a statement at the time. “These tests should no longer be required in the initial-eligibility standards. The tests are again being recognized as forces of institutional racism, which is consistent with their history, and they should be jettisoned for that reason alone; moreover, pragmatics also support this change.”

The NCAA’s eight-point plan to address racial equity and social justice also called for the NCAA to review the Academic Progress Rate and its impact on historically Black colleges and universities. In August, the Division I board of directors ratified a change that will allow Division I transfers to earn APR points for their previous teams if they meet progress-toward-degree requirements at their new schools.

Why not just advocate for the NCAA to pass a law making it illegal to recruit white male/female athletes?

Wouldn’t that be easier than banning minimum standardized test scores?

Civilization is a precarious thing: when everything is done to make life easier for those individuals who collectively require a lowering of standards for them to participate in it, you know you have already lost it.

    Re lowering standards to accommodate blacks…

    The problem is inability or refusal to recognize and acknowledge that they are different with lower capabilities..

    An interesting article inspired a thought experiment:

    The article poses the question : “Would we still see ourselves as human?”

    A related question is: ” How would we see them?”

    Thought experiment – if several other Homo species had survived to the present day how would they be viewed and treated?

    A neanderthal with a haircut and shave in a business suit would likely be less different and less conspicuous than a black individual, but the neanderthal is incontrovertibly a different species.

    Would we lower standards to a neanderthal level? (assuming a “neanderthal” or whatever species is less capable than an SSA, which is probably not the case).

    I guess leftards have finally thrown in the towel (one would think) as far as educating blacks to be the equal of Whites. It can’t be done as they’re genetically inferior intelligence-wise (among other things). So of course, the next logical step is to do away with any and all standards in everything. Whites just need to walk away from this failed branch of human race. Separation is the only way forward, otherwise we’re all headed to hell.

  10. Looking at most college degrees I imagine that lots and lots of them are useless. Exceptions would be in technical fields where one would have to know what the heck they are doing. All of these business management grads, art appreciation, film, dance, social studies etc end up working in retail, fast food or some service industry with no connection to the thousands of dollars that were spent getting that cherished degree. Soon after I retired from my wrangling job I worked for Enterprise Rent a Car as a shuttle driver, not a bad gig, and worked at a couple of locations. The sales people all were required to have a college degree to rent cars to people by filling out some forms and handing keys over, a real challenge. In the meantime they had to clean out the incoming rentals while wearing their business suits (required) and many times I saw them on their hands and knees cleaning up puke and used condoms while I, the shuttle driver, sipped my coffee and wondered how I could have gotten a college degree so I could participate. For the most part a college degree means nothing and is overrated, again in my opinion. Businesses are going to be required to hire so many negroes or face the consequences so let’s not fret about giving them a worthless piece of paper.

White people largely provide the funds via purchasing advertised products that promote the continued enstupidation (“Fred On Everything”) of the white race to glorify the black morons.

    It is the white part of the population that provides the money to make sure these morons become celebrities and eventually end up as professional ball chasers that grown white men get excited over. You should be ashamed of yourselves for allowing such a ridiculous spectacle to occupy your time and attention.

  21. This is the inevitable outcome when blacks are included in anything. That’s why the switch from “equality” to “equity” has been made. They realized that when put on equal grounds, blacks still failed miserably. So now the push is for equity, which means equal outcomes even if you must put your finger on the scale. Since we cannot bring blacks up to our level, we must bring everyone else down to theirs. This is going on all over America, not just at the collegiate level. We’ve seen American exceptionalism, now we get to witness American substandard-ism.

    Man charged with attempted murder following home invasion, bail set at \$1 million

    Published at 4:42 pm, September 22, 2021

    Updated at 4:52 pm, September 22, 2021

    REXBURG — A Rigby man has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, burglary and grand theft after a couple was shot and stabbed in their Madison County home.

    Pierre G. Lake, 18, appeared in court via Zoom from the Madison County Jail for the first time Wednesday. Magistrate Judge David Hunt read the charges Lake faces and set bail at \$1 million.

    Lake is accused of entering the mobile home of Ralph and Karen Brian off North 12th West around 5 a.m. Monday. Lake allegedly shot Ralph in the head and stabbed Karen in the face, neck and/or arm, according to the criminal complaint read by Hunt. Following the incident, Karen was able to call 911 for help and Madison County deputies arrived.

    Lake was arrested Tuesday evening at his Jefferson County home. He admitted to the crimes, according to Madison County Prosecuting Attorney Rob Wood. During the court hearing, Wood argued that Lake’s bail should be \$1 million.

    “I would note that the defendant, after being taken into custody, made a full confession to these crimes,” Wood said during the hearing. “We believe he is extremely dangerous and we believe he has every reason in the world, if he was to bail out, to flee.”

    Jim Archibald, Lake’s attorney, argued that bail should be \$100,000 as this is an attempted murder case and not an actual murder investigation. Hunt denied the request, set the higher bail and told Lake if he is able to post bond, he cannot leave Madison County.

    In addition to the attempted murder charges, prosecutors allege Lake committed burglary and grand theft by using a gun belonging to the Brian’s “with the intent to deprive (them) of property.”

    A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 6.

    As of Tuesday, Ralph Brian was in critical condition and Karen Brian was in fair condition at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. When asked for an update Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman told she “has no releasable information on either person.”

  26. [Insert my screen name]. Nothing less will ever satisfy me.

    In the mean time, pay the players! (There has been some long-overdue movement, though not much, in that direction recently.)

    One leftist grievance is how public corporations pay their CEOs 100+X what their lowest level employees make. Major public college, head football coaches get paid millions (his assistants \$250K), while the players (the starting backfield!) are officially paid zilch; sorry, scholarships don’t count. Leave it to the government to embrace the top-heaviness of the private sector, while being able to pay its star employees less than minimum wage.


    Since the big state u’s want to operate their football/hoops programs like NFL/NBA franchises, e.g. admitting jocks rather than scholars, I see two ways forward:

    1) 100% privitization

    Completely separate the big sports programs from the colleges. Teams can bid for the best players regardless of the jock’s academic qualifications. No “enrollment” required. Allow the teams to keep their school nicknames and colors, use (rent at market rates) their stadia/facilities, and so forth. The conferences become professional leagues.

    2) Partial privatization. Let the colleges continue their scholar-athlete charade, but require that the athletic departments operate the programs under private sector, management and financial standards. All profits get paid out to taxpayers in the form of dividend checks.

    “Why not just advocate for the NCAA to pass a law making it illegal to recruit white male/female athletes?”

    Why not drop the whole charade of “student” athletes (at least in men’s football and basketball) and admit what they are: Professional Athlete Degrees.

    These young men are getting recruited with the hopes and dreams of playing in the NFL or NBA. Why not establish a Professional Athlete Degree program based on diet, fitness, and strength training, some simple economics and contract law classes, and admit they haven’t been “students” since Chad Buffington and Oliver Montgomery Oldmoney IV played this smashing new game of “Foot Ball” for dear old Hah-vahd or Yale back around 1890 – 1900.

    And since so few players go on to professional careers, it’d be no different than handing out Masters or PhDs to people in Liberal Arts and Science who think they’re going to be a tenured professor some day.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A notorious Haitian gang known for brazen kidnappings and killings was accused by police Sunday of abducting 17 missionaries from a U.S.-based organization. Five children were believed to be among those kidnapped.

    The 400 Mawozo gang kidnapped the group in Ganthier, a community that lies east of the capital of Port-au-Prince, Haitian police inspector Frantz Champagne told The Associated Press. The gang was blamed for kidnapping five priests and two nuns earlier this year in Haiti.

    The gang, whose name roughly translates to 400 “inexperienced men,” controls the Croix-des-Bouquets area that includes Ganthier, where they carry out kidnappings and carjackings and extort business owners, according to authorities.

    Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said the kidnapped group consisted of 16 U.S. citizens and one Canadian, for a total of five children, seven women and five men. The organization said they were on a trip to visit an orphanage.

    My wife’s late uncle and I were talking to each other at a family party a few years before he passed. At the time we were talking a scandal had been uncovered where Chicago aldermen had been pressuring U of I and other state schools to take unqualified students who were children of political donors or family friends. My uncle was upset about it since his children wanted to attend U of I in the late 1980s – early 1990s and couldn’t get in. They ended up attending out of state Big 10 schools. I asked him “How is this any different than U of I giving scholarships to kids whose only talent is throwing or catching a football or tossing a basketball through a hoop?” He admitted I had a point.

    That’s why when all those Hollywood celebrities like Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman were charged with bribing admissions officers and testing facilities to get their less than stellar kids into school, my first response was “So, are colleges going to toss out athletes that can’t spell cat if you gave them the ‘C’ and ‘A’ but they can play sports ball?”

    I recently read about the NAACP. It has 60 founders. Only 7 of them were black.

    Of the 7 black founders, the leader was Web Du Bois who was a mulatto IIRC and who died in Ghana at age 95 (he went back to Africa).
    The other 6 may have ranged from mulattoes to octoroons. I tried to check but could not find anything concrete. Wikipedia as usual obsures racial identification in its articles

    Like BLM that was founded by non-blacks it is another example that blacks can’t organize anything.

As for the latter, I couldn’t figure out what the big deal was about MBAs since the course content was pretty much the same as my BS degree in Business. To top it off, I never really used anything from either degree in the job world. A few short adult education courses in computer applications did far more for me than either degree.

    A friend went to the same university, got a Business degree and ended up in a job restocking soft drink and candy machines. Later he got out of that rut by becoming a CSX locomotive engineer. He didn’t need four years of college for either job.

    Part of the problem is that sports fans identify too closely with their teams of orcs. An example is a younger brother who is not just a sports fan, he is a sports psychotic. Some of my favorite memories of my youth include seeing him being reduced to a blubbering mess of tears and wailing when his favorite negro-ball team was, yet again, being trounced.

    My brother hardly talks about anything else, and he completely identifies with his beloved teams of orcs. When he talks about his team went to this or that city and played against this or that team, it’s “We went to Seattle” and “We played against the Colts” and “We went to the Super Bowl that year,” etc. What’s this “we” stuff?

    Like any true sports psychotic, he believes that if his team is playing in town and he doesn’t go to the stadium to cheer his team (and apparently impart some good juju) then they will lose and it will all be his fault. If they play in a far-off city and he doesn’t watch the game on TV (more good juju) then they will lose, and again it will be all his fault.

    For him it was a short step to go from being a sports psychotic to cheering BLM parades and caravans. The dummy lives in Atlanta where you’d think the reality of orc violent crime would sink in, but it never has.

  68. Your brother reminds of the guys on my bowling team. There’s 3 of them that pretty much only talk about sports for the 3 hours we’re together. I mostly keep to myself and bowl because I don’t live for that shit like they apparently do. And, yes, your brother may find out the hard way about racial realities by living in Atlanta. I’m not wishing ill on him but maybe a good scare will set him straight.

    A minority of my male relatives are also afflicted by the sports mental condition. I had an uncle that was watching a boxing match on TV (decades ago) and got so excited he clocked his brother sitting next to him when he was yelling and motioning at his favorite zulu how to proceed.

    Your description of your brother referring to “his” team and using “we” was something I hadn’t thought of before. It never occurred to me that people were that involved. I’ve never been interested in team sports of any kind since I’m definitely not a team player. I preferred racing cars and motorcycles or just properly piloting aircraft which under certain conditions is a hair raising, adrenaline pumping sport.

    Sports need to be taken out of the educational setting totally. It produces the team mentality where one jerk gets to tell the rest what to do and how to do it. It’s state worship training in disguise and is why it’s in schools. It has nothing to do with physical education and everything to do with propaganda.

    I wrote it that way in reference to MLK’s speech, but never gave much thought to the term itself.
    I guess if you think of it like a recipe for a person, Content of character is the list of ingredients, and Character is the result of it put together, is about the best way I can explain it.

    There’s a man in his 50s at my local watering hole that dresses head to toe in his favorite NFL team’s merchandise. Hat, shirt, shorts, socks & shoes, every time I see him, and regulars confirm he dresses like that every day. On Sundays he is in there screaming at the tv if “his” team is losing, giving strategies of what “we” have to do to come back to win, then angrily pouts and leaves if they lose, like he was the one calling the plays, or on the field throwing/catching passes. I’m sure the team’s coaches and players don’t feel as bad after a loss as this random fan in a bar. I’ve known a few other zealots like him who’s day would be absolutely ruined when “their” team lost a game 1500 miles away, while some guy is in his living room screaming at a tv screen.

    Sick ‘n Tired———I am old enough to remember 1950s females acting this way.That was before women were adequately medicated. Sounds like your acquaintance needs an intervention.

    Schools in the USA are now to produce players for NBA and NFL. You can fail at maths and English and also be just another black MVP or another black cornerback. We all can’t be only athletes, because nobody would heal you or defend your country against the enemy.

    I’m old enough to know that I can’t cure someone like him, and it’s not worth the effort to even try. Ron White said “You can’t fix stupid”, and the older I get the more I understand how true that statement is.
