Cancel culture: Stanford professor and CEO Joel Peterson’s take

The coming crisis of our generation will be the end of wokeism. I sense a storm brewing, where the outcome will be a coalition of sane left and right battling the complete politicization of western civilization by these Marxists. They will regret starting this fight, but we won’t regret finishing it.

Content of character vs. color of skin
In a class I teach, students objected when guest CEOs claimed to have been “color blind.” When I volunteered that I, too, had resisted hiring based on skin color, gender or quotas, and had relied, instead, on character, competence and commitment, some students were offended. To understand why those “triggered” would object to standards of character and competence being added to the emergent holy grail of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), I turned to one of my own daughters.

Sensing my bafflement at the outrage, she immediately wrote back:

“I have known you my entire life, and I know by your words and deeds that you value all people of all races, ethnicities, and genders. I know you are constantly impressed and inspired by immigrants and their amazing stories of courage and perseverance. I’m proud of the work you’ve done. If this younger, “triggered” generation pushes out of their lives all who seek to improve their understanding, teach them, and open their minds to broader ways of thinking, it will be to their detriment.”

Blackness Fatigue: Enough is Too Much, by Fred Reed – The Unz Review

Government and the media hide what is going on. In crime stories they increasingly do not publish the race or photo of perpetrators. This, they say, would perpetuate stereotypes, as indeed it would. Stereotypes are the aggregate observations of many people over time and are almost always accurate. But there is another, and worse, pattern. For example, when a black was shot in Ferguson, black witnesses lied, saying that he had his hands up and said, “Don’t shoot!” The media bought this and propagated it. They invariably go for the bad-white-innocent-blacks narrative and ghetto blacks, who don’t, and often cannot read, believe it and understandably become enraged. An uprising follows.

In particular the media do not make public the very real hatred of blacks for whites. Exceptions and degrees, yes, but the centerline is a powerful hostility. If you doubt this, and the brewing reaction, watch this video by Jared Taylor, one of many white advocates never seen in the media. About the video, two points: First, the examples of black hatred are documented, verifiable, and many. Second, whatever you may think of him, he is an example of what a great many quietly say—quietly because you can lose your job for saying the wrong thing.

“Anti-Racist” Education Is Neither

It’s as insipid as it is insulting when anti-racist Glenn Singleton, president of the racial-sensitivity training outfit Courageous Conversation, tells the New York Times Magazine that “scientific, linear thinking” and “cause and effect” are among the “hallmark[s] of whiteness.” Across Africa and Asia, air-traffic controllers and cardiovascular surgeons put a lot of faith in things such as “linear thinking” and “cause and effect.” When they do so, are they practicing “whiteness”?

Campus Reform | OSU students furious after university reports Black-on-White ‘hate crime’

They give away the game by protesting this:

Ohio State University students are upset after the school published information about two Black hate crime suspects, as it is required to do under federal law. On September 3, the Ohio State University sent a public safety notice to students, which mentioned a “hate crime” perpetrated by two African-American suspects near Ohio State’s campus. The first correspondence did not mention the victims’ race.

Boston School Board Members Resign After Racist Text Messages Emerge

It’s always a a right wing conspiracy when the left get caught:

Rivera and Oliver-Davila sent the texts during an October 21 meeting on admissions processes for the district’s three elite high schools. The committee voted to scrap the traditional admissions exam for a system that allocated seats based on a student’s grades and ZIP code, which members thought would give priority to students in lower-income communities. Parents from West Roxbury objected to the proposal, which cut admissions from the wealthy neighborhood.

Rivera, a professor of women’s studies at the University of Massachusetts, said in a statement to the Globe that the release of the messages constituted a “right-wing coordinated effort” to stop the board from making the October admissions change permanent.

Biden’s CRT ‘Extremism’ Training Tears the Military Apart

But were they wearing masks?? That’s the only thing that matters… to the left.

“Mr. Secretary, we’re hearing reports of plummeting morale, growing mistrust between the races and the sexes where none existed just six months ago, and unexpected separations and retirements based on these trainings alone,” Cotton said, citing the whistleblower reports he has received from the troops.

Almost Overnight, Standards of Color-Blind Merit Tumble Across American Society

This will not end well, and all those loudly claiming to be on the right side of history will look back and see they were on the wrong side.

—–

The rapid transition from equality of treatment to equality of outcomes tests one of the basic post-civil rights principles of American life, namely that the same standards should be applied to all people. Once a measure is applied, not to the unique individual but to that individual’s group identity, the idea that there are neutral, common, universally applicable standards gives way to something else, something subjective and political, with different measures applied to different people, depending on their sex, race, or other characteristics.
