University of California Teaching Faculty Advised to Avoid "Microagressions" Such as "America is the Land of Opportunity" or Denying an Accusation of Racism

On the latter, when someone accuses you of racism, and you deny it, you are "microaggressing" them by Denying Their Truth and delegitimizing their lived experience.


Eugene Volokh of the eponymous conspiracy.

But of course this concept [of the "microaggression"] is now being used to suppress not just, say, personal insults or discrimination in hiring or grading, but also ideas that the UC wants to exclude from university classrooms. Here, from the UC Office of the President, Academic and Personnel Programs department’s site... are some of what the UC wants to see stamped out, in classrooms and presumably elsewhere as well:


Tool: Recognizing Microaggressions and the Messages They Send

Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership (from Diversity in the Classroom, UCLA Diversity & Faculty Development, 2014). The first step in addressing microaggressions is to recognize when a microaggression has occurred and what message it may be sending. The context of the relationship and situation is critical. Below are common themes to which microaggressions attach….

[Theme:] Color Blindness[:] Statements that indicate that a White person does not want to or need to acknowledge race.

[Microaggression Examples:] "There is only one race, the human race."
"America is a melting pot."
"I don’t believe in race." ...


[Theme:] Denial of Individual Racism/Sexism/Heterosexism[:] A statement made when bias is denied….

[Microaggression Examples:] … To a person of color: "Are you sure you were being followed in the store? I can’t believe it."...

[Theme:] Myth of Meritocracy[:] Statements which assert that race or gender does not play a role in life successes, for example in issues like faculty demographics.

[Microaggression Examples:] "I believe the most qualified person should get the job."
"Of course he’ll get tenure, even though he hasn't published much -- he’s Black!"
"Men and women have equal opportunities for achievement."
"Gender plays no part in who we hire."
"America is the land of opportunity.""
“Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough."
"Affirmative action is racist."

Well, I’m happy to say that I’m just going to keep on microaggressing.

Volokh notes that while these examples are presented as things to be avoided to avoid offense, what they actually constitute is an official forbiddance of expression of certain ideological beliefs -- that is, anything contradicting the racist leftwing fanatically-tribalist Cultural Marxism agenda.

They are attempting to make a political viewpoint effectively illegal.

And this is more than an advisory: there are consequences to speaking the truth. Fewer and fewer teachers have tenure, meaning they are more dependent on the goodwill of the leftwing school administrators (and leftwing student agitation groups)
to even have a job.

And have no doubt: When the threat is to deny you your employment and hence your daily bread if you express Nonconforming Mindthoughts and Soulpatterns of a Subversive nature, it is effectively outlawed.

The fact that the U of C is the official state financed, owned and operated California university makes the state's list of Thou Shalt Not Think especially, well, problematic.


Old question: Can America be saved?

New question: Is there anything left of America worth saving?

Let us begin talking about Plan Bs and Exit Plans.

The electoral process isn't going to help. Even if elections were fair, they've co-opted both parties. Even if they hadn't co-opted both parties, they have a death grip on the levers of power immune to electoral results.

A national divorce or exit plan is a pipe dream. Do you think they would just let you go? Are totalitarians in the habit of relinquishing control of things willingly?

No, as long as these people are alive, they are never going to stop.

So if you want them to stop, you know what has to happen. No way around it.

"The court had found that even if a website took down comments after people complained, it could still be held liable because it should have anticipated bad comments in the first place. Seriously. In this case, the website had published what everyone agrees was a "balanced" article about "a matter of public interest" but that the website publisher should have known that people would post nasty comments, and therefore, even though it automated a system to remove comments that people complained about, it was still liable for the complaints."

No exit or Plan B ideas. None.

Well, for CA. One just has to leave. Remember ace that if one lives in one's bubble, and it doesn't require engagement with the jaw-dropping idiocy and repellent nonsense that is now mainstream in "educated" sophisticated America, then this all sort of happens "far away". It's like reading about the depradations of ISIS in Mosul or something.

Of course it means abandoning an intelligent, serious, remotely American outlook or sensibility on anything of note. It means treating most people you know (depending on the breaks of your situation) like crazy KKKers or People's Temple wackos, carefully avoiding engagement when they barf up something they've soaked in from the idiot marinade they all swim in (mainstream media, pop culture, academia).

Ace, quick comment. I think you, as I, as many of us, are all suffering from association syndrome.



This happens with cops all the time. They are surrounded by scum all the fucking time. So you know what, they start to think everyone else in the world is exactly like the scum or that the whole world is a shithole.


You are on the front lines of the SJW because punching back against the culture war. Thus, because you confront, analyze and laugh at these people all day, you start to think that the country is gone.


I've thought the same thing re the Seinfeld comments. He is actually scared OF THE AUDIENCE. Because they are lunatics. That's what he's really saying.


But I'd say fakeblack and the SJWs are moving too fast too hysterically and finally, they will be told to shut the fuck up. Already happened in GamerGate and SciFi.



We must get ahold of our schools though, they are in total disrepair. Heinlein concluded his book Take Back Your Government by saying (para): "Watch any area that is taken over by the communists. Wherever they are indicates that something is very wrong there."


Schools/media are in major trouble.

I laughed my ass off after driving through a noisy student demonstration outside of San Francisco State, which is one of the most aggressively moonbat campuses in CA.

The student protestors were simultaneously demanding that tuition fees be steeply slashed, and that pay for all university staff from professors to janitors be radically increased. (The source of said pay being predominantly tuition fees.)

130 Exit plan:

1) Texas claims the Constitution as its founding document and kicks everyone else out the United States, thus inoculating it from accusations of "secession."
2) Louisiana is annexed by treaty. The two-state USA 2.0 claims sovereignty over the Gulf of Mexico. Houston and New Orleans are our Atlantic ports. Drill, baby, drill.
3) The five states north of Texas - Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, S/N Dakota - are annexed by treaty. We finally build an oil pipeline from Canada.

I haven't gotten any further than that in detail yet. Probably annex the south and west, claim San Diego and east-of-San Andreas California as ours, build a wall along the Mexican border and the San Andreas to exclude LA/SF/Portland/Seattle (People's Republic of West San Andreas?), and give everything north of Pennsylvania, urban Minnesota, and Detroit to Canada (or they can keep their sovereignty and become South Canada. I don't care.)

177 > when someone accuses you of racism, and you deny it, you are "microaggressing" them by Denying Their Truth and delegitimizing their lived experience.

This is what Jonathan Chait completely missed in that "Not a Very PC Thing to Say" piece.

In the article, he describes a Facebook group for womyn writers. A womyn writer who is also a POC posted that, if there is a thread that doesn't have enough POC on it, the non-POC womyn must check their privilege or some other such. A non-POC womyn said, basically, "Umm, yeah, we're talking about writing and stuff and no POC womyn showed up on this particular thread," and then, of course, it hit the fan.

The reason is because the hyper-PC SJWs really do believe that because of their SJW status any thought that comes flying out of their mind is correct. Criticism of that idea by someone who is not as victimized as they are is, therefore, oppression. The validity of the idea is of absolutely no consequence.

As UC goes, so goes the rest of the education system in California, so expect these "guidelines" to be promulgated throughout the state college system and junior college system.

199 I was on mrs. Hoyts blog one day when she talked about it. Her perspective is always interesting. On one hand I agree that the great divorce will probably not be peaceful and that we don't have a good demarcation principle like the Europeans if the EU dissolves. Considering the hippies bombed schools in the 60's when they didn't have power I have to give her credit. But for the natural demarcation I have to disagree, we have states. To some degree they aren't perfect, Chicago screws Illinois for example, but largely they are more coherent than given credit for. Our great divorce would be best if it just went to federalism and we stayed a US. How ever, if it goes to shit, we still have states to organize around. We just have to wake our governors and legislators up and tell them its time to earn the paychecks.

While I agree with the obvious inconsistencies in liberal thought, I do think there is some twisted logic behind all this trans crap being shoveled at us.

They are actively trying to blur the lines of what is and what isn't. A guy can choose to be a girl or the other way around. A person can choose to be whatever race they want. We are all free to do and be whatever we want.

What then is the meaning and purpose of being an American? Why not just tear down the borders and let people choose to be Americans if they want?

Yes math has the ultimate say and eventually the system they've built can't be sustained any longer and will crash.

I actually think we're approaching the period of peak insanity in which the left gets complete unconstrained freedom in academia and a few other areas and proceeds to implement every dream policy they've ever wanted. The one good thing about this is that by essentially putting the crazies in charge it also guarantees that the policies and systems will fail dramatically and be discredited in the process. And that the crazies will eventually go after their former allies on the left.

Just remember that all of this is crazy. And will eventually fail and crash. So we're in the phase where we need to keep our heads when all about us are losing theirs. And resist the crazyness now and be prepared to pick up the pieces when it does come down.

256 I actually think we're approaching the period of
peak insanity in which the left gets complete unconstrained freedom in
academia and a few other areas and proceeds to implement every dream
policy they've ever wanted. The one good thing about this is that by
essentially putting the crazies in charge it also guarantees that the
policies and systems will fail dramatically and be discredited in the
process.

I've thought about that, but don't think it's much of a problem, for a number of reasons.
First is the logistical consideration.
Second is that having troops dribble in is a recipe for disaster for them. The way to do that is a whole bunch arriving at once, but that runs up against the logistical problem.Third is that the nations we're talking about providing blue helmets are either too pussified (Europe) or too stupid and disorganized (Africa) to pose much of a threat, while Russia and China come up against the logistical problem.Fourth is, of course, the classic Yamamoto maxim about a gun behind every blade of grass. And while we were at it would be a good time to deal with our own quislings.

We get farmland, cattle country and have good working ports in Long Beach (Orange County), Texas and we'll need an eastern port; somewhere Mid-atlantic (perhaps we can build/dredge the southern parts of the Chesapeake.

Diplomatic and economic relations will be treated as any other allied country (we'll make decent income selling them food), military infrastructure can be divided on a negotiated basis or perhaps based on the number of personnel expressing allegiance to which side.

Read the NYT article comments. People are advocating for the FBI to send undercover agents to TEA Party meetings and to try to break up "right wing" events like NASCAR (yes, seriously) and gun shows.

It's, uh, dangerous.

No faster way to make a self fulfilling prophecy of their political opponents becoming violent then to use the full force of the federal government against said opponents.

404 Evidently we went from macro-aggression to micro-aggression. You know what comes after that? That's right. Pico- and nano-aggressions. Another reason to abandon the metric system!

Time to issue a call for all members of the Washington State Free Militia to repair to their local tavern to drink and plan strategy. Well, maybe mostly drink. Then plan to be sure the supply line of liquor is protected.

Remember the Battle of Quicksand Bottoms!

406 Just a guess...some technological fail-safe is already implemented to prevent just such a contingency. The movie Deterrence with Kevin Pollak comes to mind.

Just got a call from OPM. They say you're adorable.

407 Oddly, perhaps, I maintain that it would be astonishingly easy to save America. It would simply take one good leader and one good, long determined siege of eight years. The outline or battle-plan of how to confront cultural Marxism could be mapped out in one week-end retreat. It's not that difficult to identify the hot zones and how to fight them. We've been conditioned to believe we cannot fight them or can't roll back their awesome influence, but we really can. The problem is the simplest and oldest: the problem of human character and leadership.

Problem: Politics is now pure perception. No candidate or potential candidate we've seen fielded for our side has been able to withstand the limitless onslaught of media slander (or in the case of Paul Ryan, media flattering [re: beefcake photos]).

413 Folks, hate to pee in the lemonade, but in maybe 20 years, there will be so many Undocumented American Voters and carpetbagger liberals in Austin that TX will go purple, then blue. TX is done unless the SHTF soon. Me, I'm just hoping for the SMOD or Sweet Yellowstone Caldera of Death or the Sweet Cephalopod of Death (Cyhulhy fhtagn!). Just something quick, I know what pain is like and I don't enjoy it. We're already done, the only thing in question is, can we go out on our terms?

Ain't gonna be no hot civil war, no secession, and no foreign invasions.

But y'all already knew that.

But JackStraw, while I cannot disprove speculation, your speculation that simply letting idiotic fascist statist un-American ideas and policies be "discredited" draws on some historical antecedent I am unfamiliar with.

At least in our era, incredibly bad and disastrous policies are not "discredited". They are rarely ever understood or portrayed to the masses in the first place. The gigantic, prolonged, insane intervention and deranged decision-making that made the mortgage derivative debacle possible (by FNMA and the Fed) was not "discredited". The banks were demonized, but the sine qua non intervention that made it all possible? Oh, right. "Discovered" by a NYT writer in a book a few years later - yet obvious, and spoken about in detailed terms, literally at the time it was happening, in various comment sections on the web.

In CA, "green" energy nonsense will never be "discredited". Sure, they might have to quietly relax/deep six some of the most destructive crap (like the diesel emissions standards ginned up by a fraudulent CARB "scientist" a few years ago, who placed his decimal in the wrong place - not kidding) to avoid near-term, unconcealable disaster. But the scientific and economic illiteracy, the utter unfamiliarity with American concepts like limited govt., rule of law, individual freedom - these things will never be discredited. They'll just grind on, finding new absurdities to impoverish and darken society.

415 "The Left already knew Reagan's axiom, that there'd be nowhere left to go, was true; there already wasn't anywhere else when he said it, nor is there now. So their only real task was to make this place just like everywhere else. I know it seems simplistic and obvious when it's stated like that, but it bears mentioning only to point out that they've pretty much succeeded.

Posted by: Doomed at June 17, 2015 04:20 PM (bGLSw)
_______________

They most certainly have, and it goes beyond academia. For example, the King County executive, "Dowbama," is a huge proponent of this micro-aggression shiite. He instituted a diversity and social justice office and staff. Employees have the option of attending workshops on micro-aggression. Optional, for now.

423 I went to UCSD for undergrad, UC Hastings for law school. Every couple of years when a new bit of PC nonsense coming out of one of those schools makes the news, I write a letter to the chancellor pointing it out and explaining why I do not feel like contributing so much as one goddamn dime to the alumni fund.

The entire UC system is rotted with PC through and through; they still have good hard science and engineering programs, but the other disciplines are pretty much a wasteland. I ought to contact Kurt Schlicter and Ben Boychuk and suggest they organize an alumni boycott of the UC system. (There's probably a "soft boycott" already in place of alumni like me who don't feel motivated to contribute anything, but an organized and publicized effort might get a little more attention.)

Posted by: Alex at June 17, 2015 05:25 PM (7Yy8M)

424 ^^ (Schlicter and Boychuk were on the staff of the UCSD conservative paper the California Review when I was there -- which was itself the victim of some ridiculous PC repression in the 80s.)

427 Notice that every preferred victim group is included in the list as, of course, victims. Therefore, the mere existence of this list is a macro-aggressive attack against white males. After all, if everyone else is a victim then the culprit has to be from the only remaining group.
