White adjacent? [KT]

mattress.jpg

White supremacy, white privilege, white . . .

Last week, we talked about Critical Race Theory in Schools. Including the plan to implement cultural "countergenocide" against "White Christianity" in California schools. Since then, there has been some positive and some negative news on the Critical Race Theory front. Then there were the shootings in Atlanta. The news seems to be dominated by racial and ethnic issues.

The insane Ethnic Studies program for California was passed by the authorities on its third try. Wenyuan Wu, the Executive Director at Californians for Equal Rights for Foundation writes at Legal Insurrection:

Two days before the California Board of Education voted to adopt a revolutionary Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, a delusional white man in my home state of Georgia shot and killed eight people including six women of Asian descent in three massage parlors. Some connect the two events, positing that they demonstrate the ruling elites' pathological obsession with race, masqueraded as symbolic acts to help Asian Americans.

This addiction to examining all social issues through the prism of race is harmful as it seeks to legitimize a claimed victimhood into our already balkanized society, inaccurately depicting historical and current events, and deflecting from a genuine search for meaningful redress.

California's Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, aside from other glaring issues rooted in its foundational framework of critical race theory, also capitalizes on the "model minority myth" as a stereotype to highlight systemic oppression against Asians and a racial wedge between Asians and other people of color. Instead of celebrating best practices of many Asian Americans in defiance of historical marginalization, the ethnic studies curriculum points to 'white adjacent' power and privilege as the plausible explanation for Asian American success, stoking racial animosities and tensions.

The radical narrative caricatures Asian Americans' reliance on hard-work, initiative, and emphasis on education, not as the agency of Asian Americans, but as the features of an oppressive system that strongarms Asian Americans into 'white adjacency,' separating them from other victim groups.

Could this become a factor in the Gavin Newsom recall?

More on the Asian angle:

Good. Now put it into action and start firing them.

From the Richest County in America

During the week, Ace picked up the Loudon, Virginia Teachers Plotting to "Infiltrate" and "Expose" and Use "Hackers" to Silence Parents Who Object to Critical Race Theory.

1. Fire them. 2. Ban them from ever teaching in a public school again. 3. Arrest and prosecute them for conspiracy to violate civil rights.

Here's a new development in this county, identified as the richest in the country in the linked piece:

Fighting Back

Ron DeSantis:

Let me be clear, there's no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory, teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.

That's how you do it.

Via Maggie's Farm, Now it's really time to disrupt education.

Glenn Reynolds in the New York Post: To beat the woke tyrants, we must treat them like the monsters they are. He actually called them monsters.

He referred to Taleb on how the most intolerant win. Interesting reading when you have some time.

A couple of good videos here. A black woman confronts an Ohio school board for critical race theory indoctrination, plus Shelby Steele.

Legal Insurrection has been doing some other good work on the Critical Race Theory front, too. They are now developing information on primary and secondary education to go with their information on higher education. The video at this link includes a simplified explanation of Critical Race Theory, without the postmodern complications. One thing that they have pointed out is that parents may have more legal recourse in public schools that in private schools.

Prep Schools and the Ivy League

The Legal Insurrection piece brings us back to the piece by Bari Weiss on ultra-expensive Prep schools that Ace picked up earlier in the month. A couple of quotes from that piece, about Critical Race Theory:

In this worldview, complexity itself is a kind of racism, nuance is a phobia, and skepticism merely a type of false consciousness. Ibram Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist, plainly spelled out the logic on Twitter recently: "The heartbeat of racism is denial. And too often, the more powerful the racism, the more powerful the denial."

One teacher told me that he was asked to teach an antiracist curriculum that included a "pyramid" of white supremacy. At the top was genocide. At the bottom was "two sides to every story."

"'Two sides to every story,'" he said. "That was on the racist pyramid.

"The Racist Pyramid" sounds like a model for destruction of the capacity to think. We REALLY don't want these children growing up to run our country and educate our teachers. Time for alternatives to the Ivy League.

. . . Fluency in woke is an effective class marker and key for these princelings to retain status in university and beyond. The parents know this, and so woke is now the lingua franca of the nation's best prep schools. As one mother in Los Angeles puts it: "This is what all the colleges are doing, so we have to do it. The thinking is: if Harvard does it, it must be good."

"I am in a cult. Well, that's not exactly right. It's that the cult is all around me and I am trying to save kids from becoming members." He sounds like a Scientology defector, but he is a math teacher at one of the most elite high schools in New York City. He is not politically conservative. "I studied critical theory; I saw Derrida speak when I was in college," he says, "so when this ideology arrived at our school over the past few years, I recognized the language and I knew what it was. But it was in a mutated form."

This teacher is talking with me because he is alarmed by the toll this ideology is taking on his students. "I started seeing what was happening to the kids. And that's what I couldn't take. They are being educated in resentment and fear. It's extremely dangerous." . .

Genocide Watch does not include "two sides to every story" on its 10 Stages of Genocide. Where do you think the California Ethnic Studies Program, or the Criticial Studies Programs in elite prep schools fall?

genoc.jpg

Another perspective: A piece in The Atlantic blasts the parents -- anxious, demanding elite parents who feel that their children have fewer prospects than they did. Well, The Atlantic piece blasts the schools, too. Glenn Reynolds comments: "As with the Ivy League itself, I wouldn't mind so much if they produced a higher class of graduates."

O.K. If the Ivy League wants to lead the way in destroying Western Civilization, require all Ivy League faculty and students to spend at least one year out of every four in Ghana, checking their privilege and just listening.

Maybe you can think of another good location for those "We Are Privileged" years abroad for the Ivy League.

Indonesia comes to mind. I was frequently called "bule" - albino - during my year of work there. And the locals frequently cut in front of me when I was politely waiting my turn to be served.

A year there could teach them about how well that race card works amid their own mindset.

I just got off the phone with her. She sounds a lot better than on Monday when she went in the hospital. They're slowly taking care of her myriad health issues, but she's still very weak. At least her appetite is returning. I'll be taking my Saturday shower soon (whether I need it or not) then head out to visit her for a couple of hours.

Then why didn't the Dems do anything about it when Obama and Sniffy were in office?

Also what about all the cities that this stuff is apparently rampant in yet these cities have been run by Dems for decades.

Why isn't anyone slamming that back in their faces and why is it the White supremacys fault when clearly the Dems can be found to be more guilty of supremacy than Republicans.

C'mon GOP! You want our money, our support then you better start fighting back on this stuff or we'll push you right out into the street along with us when they start loading the railroad cars.

Oh they won't frame the optics like that. No it will be something for our health or out own good or because we've been forced out of our homes and towns for some reason. They'll have a good excuse and the media won't follow up.

67 Having just finished devouring the excellent Dominion, How the Christian Revolution Remade the World, by Tom Holland (thank you for the recommendation, Donna of the Ampersands), I can say that Christianity has never been "white" in essence, nor will it ever be.

One of the main points of the book is that the assumptions and arguments underlying just about every protest or "human rights" effort are themselves utterly Christian in origin, and would never exist but for Jesus and His disciples' existence.

And the idea that Christianity is somehow oppressive to non-white people is, of course, absolute crap. It may have been imposed by force on some peoples in the past, but its doctrine is one of the most freeing in human history.

Bah. These assholes just want a race war.

73 re my county of Loudoun: the Loudoun NAACP is headed by a professional racist who uses her "pastor" title to cast a righteous cloak over her actions.
She is a member of the social media group that advocated targeting parents, she was instrumental in getting the equity commission formed and filled in LCPS, she was at the forefront of the change in previously merit based admissions at the Academy that produced lawsuits from the Asian community that lost seats. She has bullied and demanded land from both private and government entities be turned over to her nonprofit "Freedom Center" supposedly in trust for the sake of historic preservation, but in some of her rants slips and calls it land she personally "owns", which I find pretty funny for someone who sees slavery everywhere, yet preens that she "owns" a former slave graveyard. If a week goes by without press coverage, she manufactures an issue, and sends out a punch list of demands for her flying monkeys to assail the local government and press. I hope they do file charges over the planned targeted harassment; the woman is dangerous.

Agreeing that everything will be judged based on them assuming to be racist, and looking out for their own family's interests and being taught to not give a fuck about black people, black communities, or black children because they've been taught that "they can't not be racist" or whatever so they might as well be racist.

126 I see that USAToday proudly proclaims that it has debunked "the conspiracy theory" that Biden's two question interview was staged - you know, the one where his hands float over camera mikes and there are weird warped areas around just Punchy and no where else.

Well, it seems that the sooper geniuses at USA Today checked that out with Forensic Video Solutions and some dude there said - 'nah, brah, its just video compression, done all the time.'

Yeah, what USA Today left out was that FVS is an FBI contractor and the dude that responded is an FBI guy - or used to be. So, hardly trust worthy. Also, video compression just makes files smaller by taking out frames that are repetitive - it leaves a grainy quality but it does that for over the WHOLE video shot, not just Punchy, and it doesn't cause objects to float over each other. It would never even be used by security systems if that was the result...so, something else is going on here.

159 At least Asian is a race, as opposed to "Latin" or "Hispanic" butI doubt/know that Japanese don't think of themselves as identical to Koreans, Chinese are not the same as Filipinos and Vietnamese are quite different than Indians.

Posted by: LASue at March 20, 2021 12:52 PM (Ed8Zd)

160 Could this become a factor in the Gavin Newsom recall?

Frankly, I don't think so. You'd think Asians would be conservative, since as a demographic they're intelligent and not losers, but at least here in CA, they're not. Perhaps the cultural pressure not to stand out outweighs other considerations.

OTOH, to the extent Asians support the recall, I suspect it's because a lot of them are small businessmen, and small businessmen almost to a man what Newsom has done to their businesses - all the while favoring large businesses, as well as his own business (winery).

166 My assessment: Newsom's recall likely stems from the same root as Cuomo's troubles... It's not as if the law or popular opinion factors in to decisions at the leadership level in our government. If a Dem governor goes down, the only possible reason is that the Party wants him to. Kamala is a weak politician and will be a vulnerable candidate when she runs for reelection in '24. The GOP is permanently sidelined, but if anyone were to make a primary play it would likely be Newsom or Cuomo. Hence the recent events. YMMV.

(Many moons ago, in a 200 level engineering class, we were given a pop quiz to define Newton's second law of motion. Everyone else just wrote "F=ma" and left. I was already in a bad mood, and I found a question on a topic we should all have mastered years previously sufficiently insulting that I wrote an entire page with calculus and multiple examples explaining that force was the time-derivative of momentum. I got 10/10, and everyone else got 1/10 for writing just "F=ma". Sadly, the professor bowed to the will of the majority and overturned his TA.)

Up until a few years ago this was pretty much my main argument in justifying my scoring and working with the other judges on ranking the students projects.

The last couple of years it became apparent that the judges didn't understand the scientific method and where completely dominated about how the project made them feel.

Also, this evil cad is arrested for murdering 8 people. His biggest concern is I wasn't motivated by race, don't throw a hate crime multiplier on my crime. I'm sorry, murdering 8 people should get someone the ultimate punishment, never mind if the motive was greed vs 'hate'.

While providing little to no comfort, your church isn't alone. I'm increasingly fed up with the Catholic Church - as an institution, not as a faith. Fortunately Mrs OCiS and I have found a nearby parish where the pastor gets it, and isn't afraid to call evil for what it is - evil. But my "home" parish is all SJW and this saddens me greatly.

My husband does this too. A steady diet of WWII related movies, most of them fictional, keeps this in his mind always, but I'm working on it. He is understanding why muslim immigration might not be the safety plan he and many seek, and instead the Haman of the day. Also "Never Again" really doesn't mean be suspicious of Western Civilization and rip open the scars daily.

235 234: I agree.

The racial lens is causing a lot of myopia in our world, and is being exploited by bad actors everywhere. One of the most dangerous cases is the call, inside Israel, to open the doors to much broader immigration. They recognize that this might impair their survival, but it's worse to be called racists, apparently.

It comes up with Netflix, Amazon, Spotify, the MSM, of course, in daily interactions, emails from work. EVERYWHERE! It's why I refuse to rejoin society every again.

And it's all the lefts making. Yes, sure, it's their making cause they're just making it up, but even if half of these hoaxes were true they'd only have themselves to blame. Haven't they been telling us when you say someone is bad enough times, they'll start believing it and acting that way? That's why kids disrupting class aren't punished or expelled. Well..... they tell the public at every turn how awful we are. Should they be surprised if we start believing it and act that way. I mean they're going to call you racist anyway, so why bother?

Good grief. F them all!

238 I find the best attack on CRT is the same as on Marxism itself. It is a system based on Hegel's dialects, which is an antiquated, pre-Darwinian way to view the world. Dialectics fails to account for the two main features that drive history: cataclysmic disruption, sometimes chaotic, (i.e., the Black Plague, steam power, the internet, etc.) and adaptation to that change. When you ridicule these people as being backwards they don't have much of an retort.

To be not hysterical about it, I agree, but the other aspects are troubling. The preparation is more in the warning of bad think by police officers. Yes, nobody is being relocated yet.

But theft of property in 8 is inarguable. Again, witness the awarding of, what, $27 million to a family for an overdose which was turned into a "cause" by government propaganda. Where does that money come from? Theft through higher taxes of the citizens for a bogus "cause".

289 The argument against CRT is simple: You can't beat racism with more racism. You will simply be replacing one form of racism with another.

This is an argument everyone can get behind. Many know the maxim, an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. Just like trying to use racism to combat racism leads to everyone being racist.

The left is great at coming up with pithy bumper-sticker slogans that everyone can quickly grasp. It's time the right start learning to play the game. You don't lift someone up by putting others down. CRT is just a new version of racism, no need to get into the weeds.

"Divide and conquer" can only be defeated by "we hang together or we hang separately." Someone needs to point out to Ms. Noem that several other states have already passed similar laws. If you keep expanding the number of states with such rules, businesses will find it increasingly harder to boycott them all. If the only alternative is California, New York and a handful of other over-taxed, overpriced, over-regulated blue states, they'll quietly shelve their boycott.
