Worth reading in full. Briefly, a Duke professor wrote a study that broke down race and choice of majors, and his study was used in a Supreme Court argument against affirmative action. Now the president of Duke is disparaging the professor.
This is good; all public fighting over affirmative action forces people to think about it and causes polarization.
The Left has everyone they are going to get, and everyone on the Left requires a paycheck, or is independently wealthy and does Leftism as a hobby.
Those who join us have nothing to lose but their chains. We are the Movement of the truiy disenfranchised, because we are purposedly disfavored and discriminated against. Political correctness and anti-white discrimination is an academic field called Critical Race Theory. Patricia Williams sums it up:
Finally, Columbia law professor Patricia Williams offers a disturbing glimpse into the logic of CRT. Williams recounts the story of a hypothetical question that she was once asked to consider, where X and Y apply for a job with firm Z, which is all white. X and Y are equally qualified. One is black; the other is white. The questions asked: Who should get the job? Williams’ answer is worth repeating at length, as a window into an ideology that is not taken as seriously as it should be:
The black person should get the job. If the modem white man, innocently or not, is the inheritor of another’s due, then it must be returned.
. . . [I]f a thief steals so that his children may live in luxury and the law returns his ill gotten gain to its rightful owner, the children cannot complain that they have been deprived of what they did not own. Blacks have earned a place in this society; they have earned a share of its enormous wealth, with physical labor and intellectual sacrifice, as wages and as royalties. Blacks deserve theirinheritance as much as family wealth passed from parent to child over the generations is a “deserved” inheritance. It is deserved as child support and alimony.22
We are living in Critical Race Theory Land. People are feeling it, even though people like Tim Wise tell us we aren’t supposed to feel it. This only enrages us more.
