Political hate creates its own “climate” or “environment” according to those protesting (and reporting on) the seemingly endless acts of racist terror, many of them not proven hoaxes, occurring on college campuses.
There’s irony in how the actual physical environment of the American university, itself a product of that demonic white supremacy (Steve Sailer has pointed out recently the American college campus is an architectural innovation of that whitest of supremacists, Thomas Jefferson), are being progressively turned into the sort of hostile, dangerous environment angry blacks and allies saw in the earlier calm.
Spiked Online on an ambitious black anti-scholar who held her Northwestern school hostage one year:
I arrived in Portland on a hot Sunday afternoon on the day before classes started. I walked across one of the pedestrian bridges that spans the school’s 28-acre canyon and sat down at a picnic table in the quad. Students sat eating lunch on tables nearby, chatting excitedly about the new school year, a few of them barefoot. A stream of corgis and their owners strolled by on their way to the annual corgi parade. In the old student union, a dozen students were folk dancing to the same scratchy recordings I’d heard decades ago. I began to doubt what I’d heard about Reed. This couldn’t possibly be the nasty place described in the alumni letter.
Reed College has an excellent reputation (for the time being) and a beautiful campus. Northwestern summers are ideal: not too hot, no humidity, lush green and long northern days. Another irony is the weather brings out the protesters, whose outrage would not doubt be dampened the moment their hoodies were, if they took to the streets in grey, mossy winter.
The Evergreen State College in Washington State was overtaken by a black tranny (eventually bestowed with the title of “presidential equity adviser” by the conquered school) at the head of a gang of adoring lesbians like something straight out of a John Waters movie. The weather was perfect, conveniently for the professor holding class in a nearby park on the advice of campus police.
Remarkable how all these enclaves of white supremacy and black terror look so calm, outwardly. It’s always been this way. This was thirteen years ago:
…after visiting Claremont Colleges to check out one of those false flag attacks (a liberal feminist professor trashed her car, then told the FBI it was likely committed by her white male students) that are such a commonplace on contemporary campuses:
Another advertised: “Queer Dreams and Nightmares: What is it like to be a student at the Claremont Colleges? Student panel discussion addressing the current climate at the 5-Cs, both academically and socially.” This was part of a conference entitled, with that profusion of punctuation that is the secret fraternity handshake of post-modern academics, “[Re]Defining a Queer Space at the Claremont Colleges.”
It was 72 degrees with a gentle breeze blowing, so the climate seemed okay to me, but a flier on Pitzer bulletin boards made the local idée fixe a little clearer: “Diversity and Campus Climate: You are invited to participate in a discussion about campus climate.”
Presumably, when one of these places is convulsed by the latest poc/sjw tantrum, underneath they are placid, calm, Frisbee-friendly places.
As for Evergreen, that small school was founded in 1967 on an economically progressive model–a place where kids with some smarts but no money could get an education–that if administered properly could be providing useful college educations to one genuinely underrepresented group, working class white guys, with a better payoff for society, I suspect, than the countless poc identity-studies majors that are lugged along by their schools like chimeras. I remember thinking that at least, when I first learned of the school through the controversy.
But of course white guys are The Problem and thus pretext for the various humanities programs that exist like prospectors descending on the institutions and professions in multicultural America now in what Steve Sailer calls the “scramble for America”. Back at Reed, Spiked reports on the white guy who got in the way:
Hunter Dillman agreed to meet me on campus before we went to lunch in a barbeque joint a few blocks away. He was 6’2”, drove a beat-up black pickup and had pale blue eyes and blond hair parted in the center. He was eager to talk to somebody who wanted to hear his story in detail, somebody who didn’t believe he had simply fucked up his freshman year. He told me his father was a construction worker who owned a farm and raised cows and chickens on the side. Hunter had taken four advanced placement (AP) science courses his senior year, getting all fives, and planned to get a degree in chemistry.
Dillman was run off under the usual race-baiting duress when he spoke out of turn, which is impossible to discern, exactly.
Long ago the precursor to the EEOC argued employment discrimination left vast reservoirs of black talent untapped, this concept was
captured in the workaday concept of “underutilization,” a term that Vice President Lyndon Johnson and his associates on the PCEEO had rather casually accepted as early as 1961…
This assumption, reliant upon the prior assumption talent is equally distributed, was eventually developed into the rationale for affirmative action and disparate impact
But the distance between the vague notion of underutilization and a conscious theory of proportional representation was politically vast in the fall of 1963.
The concept was necessitated by too many discrimination cases being dismissed for having no merit. The commission was an “ineffectual agent of social change”. A dearth of talented blacks showing up individually necessitated what would eventually become known as disparate impact, arising from
…a growing conviction among fair employment activists that the individual complaint model’s deliberate due process in determining was irrelevant to the root problem of “institutional racism.”
In the newly evolving view of institutionalized racism, individual intent was at best a secondary consideration. Instead, employment discrimination should be defined and attacked statistically as a differential, rather than traditionally as an invidious and injurious act of prejudice. Its measure was simply the gap between the white and minority employment rates.
Lovely environments denounced as hellscapes, mediocrity praised as talent. It goes on and on.
