Temporary Professor Urges White Male Professors to "Please Quit," Also Opines That White Women Profs Aren't Much Better

Racism, straight-up.

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

"If you are a cis white man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power," wrote Piper Harron, a temporary assistant professor at University of Hawaii at Manoa.

"That's right, please quit. Too difficult? Well, as a first step, at least get off your hiring committee, your curriculum committee, and make sure you're replaced by a woman of color or trans person. Don’t have any in your department? HOW SHOCKING."

Harron, who is black and teaches math at Manoa, informed readers that "actual solutions require women of color and transgender individuals," noting that "having white cis women run the world is no kind of solution," referencing the 53 percent of white women who voted to elect President Donald Trump.


...

Harron addressed education recruiters in the blog post, saying they should “think long and hard” before hiring white men, asserting recruiters who do hire white men are "not innocent" and that female students of color cannot emulate white men.

Amazing that some are permitted -- nay, encouraged -- to unleash their inner Klansmyn, while others are Racist! simply for noticing the unhidden, out-and-proud racism of others.

LOL.

BTW, what the hell is a "temporary assistant professor"? An adjunct, I would assume. There really is no such thing as a "temporary" professor of any kind. No tenure track ... no "professor".

Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if this university didn't give everyone the "professor" title. The janitor is probably an "associate professor of public hygiene".

I ask because that actually has turned out to be a presicent moment:

Extreme leftists (like alien invaders) have no taken over every single aspect of culture, and the aghast normal-people have asked them "What do you ant with us?" and the answer, as revealed in the essay Ace quotes above (and countless similar revelations) is simply, "We want you to die."

There is no longer any pretending, or downplayed the real agenda. Now that they have Total Control, the truth is out: Die. Just die, cis-normies.

135 NBC news has come up with information about the driver that slammed into a crown in NYC. Item # 1 on their list:

"Richard Rojas is a US citizen and a member of the armed forces."

That was some fast reporting, also without regard to the privacy of the suspect. I can't ever remember information on the immigration status of a non-citizen suspect reported so quickly, if at all. Odd, it's almost as if NBC was eager to report the drive is both citizen and member of the military.

The current "truth" by the Left is as such:

"Gender" is a social construct and also at the same time an unchangeable characteristic of an individual. "Gender" means whether you identify as a man, a woman, or mayonaisse.

"Gender" is completely different than biological sex. Thus the oppressive doctors "assign" a gender to babies by assuming that everyone with a penis is of the male "gender". "Cis-gender" means you think you are the gender "assigned" to you at birth, which means you are accepting and perpetuating said oppression.

Biological sex, further, is now considered a "spectrum" with a plethora of "sex determining genes" such that there are a myriad of biological sexes as well.

Both of these are different from "gender expression", who you are emotionally attracted to, or who you are sexually attracted to... all of which are now different from each other.

Also, "heterosexuality" was invented in the 19th century to oppress and colonize the minds of non-Whites, and being "straight" or "cis" is now considered a mental illness that needs to be corrected.

Here is the "Gender Unicorn" to explain things to you:

"An Artist's Rendering"? As a mathematical dissertation?

I think she qualifies as another one of Princeton's affirmative action pets, just like Sotomayor (who claimed that Spanish didn't have adjectives, while already at Princeton).

One of my brushes with fame was I met Piper Laurie back in 1981. It was the summer after my high school graduation and I was working one of my first jobs as a desk clerk at a hotel. She was in town to do a play and she walked up to the desk with her entourage, looked me up and down, and said, "My, they grow them big out here in corn country." (I'm 6'4" and played football back then.)

I turned about 20 different shades of red. Had no idea who she was until it was explained to me later.

It's written almost as a kid's story - a leftist, politically caged kid. It's not something that you would think Princeton would accept.

She does some math (algebra) in it but I don't think it's important or interesting in any way. More like math busy-work, it seems to me. Something her advisor was keen on, I guess.

She never did any other work in math, so that probably says how serious that thesis was ...

Quote from Temporary Professor Piper Harron's PhD Thesis, page 1:

"First thought: Freedom!!!! Second thought: but what about the others, like me, who don't do math the 'right way' but could still greatly contribute to the community. I combined those two thoughts and started from zero on my thesis. What resulted was a thesis written for those who do not feel that they are encouraged to be themselves. People who, for instance, try to read a math paper and think, 'Oh my goodness what on earth does any of this mean why can't they just say what they mean????' rather than, 'Ah, what lovely results!'"

Math is oppressing me because I can't understand it.

And the ultimate "point" of the thesis, as far as I can tell, is to "prove" a completely trivial and unimportant and self0evident observation, that one can arrange or connect points on a field in infinitely numbers of ways!

Furthermore, as xhe reveals in the crazy writing, this "problem" was dreamed p and handed to xer on a silver platter by xer thesis advisor, who is liberally cited and referenced in the paper itself.

So the whole thing, aside from its useless triviality, is basically just regurgitating what her mentor already said, and thereby guaranteeing that the thesis will be accepted -- since the mentor is the person judging the quality of the thesis!

The Ph.D thesis at Princeton on "counterinsurgency" by David Petraeus is about as childishly derivative as you can imagine. More regurgitation going on than from a busy mama seagull.

But Petraeus had already been marked as one of Big Army's wonder boys on the way up, before he even applied to the doctoral program. Need I note that Big Army hands out lots of cushy research grants on Ivy League campuses? They sure do.

423 I distinctly remember profs who were reeking piles
of dandruff and chalk dust wrapped in tweed, who mumbled their whole
lecture in a sub-vocal monotone, but, ask them the most obscure question
and dammit, they could sure enough answer it, with proofs even.

424 They don't even care to hide their beliefs any more, like they are invulnerable to ostracism. Maybe if the silent majority, and make no mistake these simpletons are an extreme minority, were to set them down and explain reality to them they might somehow reform their beliefs..... ah, who am I fooling, those idiots would no sooner change their beliefs than to become sane, rational members of society.

Impeach Trump.

Impeach Pence.

Pelosi becomes President and "appoints" hillary as her VP.

Pelosi resigns.

Hillary becomes President!



Folks they honestly believe that can happen. We can't fight politically against that kind of mental illness.

The idea of the country slouching towards civil war has already been
broached here, and dismissed. I would think then, that the inevitable
result will be a devolution of America into a Socialist Progressive
country ran by a Euro style Elite, that favors their beholden
constituency at the cost of the worker bee class.



Without serious meaningful organized pushback, how can it be otherwise?

Posted by: kraken at May 18, 2017 03:52 PM (zSVEm)

There has to be a big nasty sorting before a civil war can happen, but then neither side cares enough about the other to fight to stay together, after that happens. The country will not survive in it's current borders for another 30 years.

432 'She's an "assistant temporary professor".'

She has one published paper, co-written with her advisor.

Which, I guess, puts her one paper ahead of our former Presentdent, the Smartest Professor in the History of the World.

434 "Harron, who is black and teaches math at Manoa, informed readers that
"actual solutions require women of color and transgender individuals,"
noting that "having white cis women run the world is no kind of
solution," referencing the 53 percent of white women who voted to elect
President Donald Trump."

Permit me to translate:
1) I'm a temporary assistant professor.
2) There are many fewer tenure-track openings in my field than there terminal-degree holders to fill those positions. (This is true for nearly any discipline outside business, engineering, and maybe law, as far as I have been able to learn. There used to be a really good blog called Invisible Adjunct that went into this topic, among others.)
3) Nobody told me about #2 when I decided to pursue a terminal degree.
4) My research is...um...I can't even, which makes me an uncompetitive candidate for the few positions that are available.
5) The immense and publicly-spotlighted-by-my-own-efforts chip on my shoulder makes hiring committees call my potential for collegiality into question (but I can always attribute that to racism/sexism, so hey, feature!).


Posted by: Zapp Branigan at May 18, 2017 06:24 PM (i8mbD)

435 Math is actually pretty good, job-wise. There aren't nearly as many people with math degrees out there, and there's a high demand for qualified teachers (in particular, any student in another science or engineering discipline is going to have to take a shitload of math courses, and even the bullshit disciplines usually require one or two).

There's also plenty of work in the private sector and gummint for good mathematicians. Way more than for Women's Studies, that's for sure.

"My research is...um...I can't even, which makes me an uncompetitive candidate for the few positions"

Bingo. Having only one (coauthored) paper sounds pretty bad.

I do know this: if her research were in any way competitive, math departments would be lining up around the block begging her to join. It's not like there are a whole lot of black female math PhDs out there. Any qualified candidate is gonna be able to write her own ticket, just to get diversity points for the department.

Conclusion: her research and teaching skills aren't great.

436 Colleges "should 'think long and hard' before hiring white men." They do already. If she were a white man, she'd know that.
