Maybe now the social justice warriors
will let the Squire speak at school board meetings
Hey white boy, put down that tiki torch and answer this question: Oppressed anyone today?
In today’s WI State Journal, self-confessed white man Anthony Brylski of Madison demands that white men do more to help others. These white men, he writes, “are happy to tell me how they’re the good ones who don’t oppress their neighbors but somehow they never actually help anyone.”
You mean, white men like Abe Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Louis Pasteur, Albert Schweitzer, Oskar Schindler, and Francis of Assisi?
“They designed our politics and culture to suit themselves so they feel free to police everyone’s behavior.”
Hear that Mike Koval and David Mahoney? Quit policing everyone’s behavior! Those 13- and 15-year olds who beat that woman on Odana Road and jacked her car? Don’t be so judgmental! (See “Juvenile justice system is failing.”)
Piercing the gathering gloom here at the Stately Manor, the Wall Street Journal this morning assures the indentured servants herein that “We’re all Native Americans now!”
Cowabunga, Buffalo Bob!
We have the Democrats great
white — no scratch that — Native American hope: Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of “Massachusetts” (an Indian word meaning liberal-progressive-socialist.)
Senator Warren spit into a cup and learned that she was between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American, “after she had listed herself as Native American on federal forms filed by Harvard and Penn law schools where she had worked.”
Which is about the same mash up as your average tiki-torch wielding, white American. Science finds that European-Americans had genomes that were on average 98.6% European, 0.19% African, and 0.18% Native American, according to a New York Times article titled (appropriately): “White? Black? A murky distinction grows still murkier.”
That means that red-headed Rachel Dolezal may very well be — at least, 1,024th sub-Saharan African-American.
Like that Ancestry.com commercial: The lady says when asked her nationality, “I would always answer ‘Hispanic.’ So when I got my Ancestry DNA result, it was a shocker. I’m everything! … I would look at forms and wonder what do I mark because I”m everything, so I marked ‘Other.’”
Elizabeth Warren did not mark ‘Other’ on her form
The indispensable David French picks up the narrative in National Review:
[Elizabeth Warren] listed herself as Native-American on a key legal directory reviewed by deans and hiring committees. Former employers — such as the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law School — listed Warren as a minority faculty member. Harvard Law School even trumpeted her as the school’s first tenured “woman of color.”
Warren contributed to a Native-American recipe book called — I kid you not — “Pow Wow Chow.”
French notes that Harvard then was under immense pressure to diversify its faculty. Which is ironic because these days, Harvard is defending itself in federal court against charges it discriminates against other non-whites, namely, Asians.
“The Harvard pretense is that it is possible to favor one race without discriminating against others,” William McGurn writes today.
An Asian-American applicant to an elite university has to score 450 points higher on the SAT to get in than a black applicant, 270 points higher than a Latino one and 140 points higher than a white one, a study has found.
Because back in the 1970s, the feds demanded even private schools parse out students by race and sex as a condition of the federal loans some of its students received. Hillsdale College (it’s in Michigan) said, basically, Screw that! and refused to take federal money. Hillsdale, McGurn notes, was the first college in the nation to declare itself open to all students “irrespective of nation, color, or sex.” It even refused an invitation to the Tangerine Bowl in 1956 rather than exclude its black football players.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Or the feds could prohibit aggregating data by race.
One might hope all this foolishness will expose identity politics for the Marxist hoax it is. In the meantime, the indentured servants at Stately Blaska Manor are issued firm instructions. When they call police on that drug house up the street, be certain to report all races and all genders — even if only 1,024th male — just to stay on the good side of identity politics scolds like Anthony Brylski of Madison.
