Pfizer Sued Over Fellowship Offered Only to Blacks and Hispanics, Specifically Excluding Asians and Whites

"Anti-racism" now just means "anti-white."


Pfizer is being sued for excluding whites and Asians from its prestigious "Breakthrough Fellowship," a nine-year program that includes a fully funded master's degree and guaranteed employment with the pharmaceutical giant.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday by the medical advocacy group Do No Harm, says that the program's exclusionary criteria violate five different civil rights laws: the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which bans racial discrimination in contracting; New York City and New York State's human rights laws, which ban race discrimination in internships, training programs, and employment; Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which bans race discrimination in federally funded entities; and Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, which bans race discrimination in federally funded health care programs.


Because Pfizer accepts reimbursements from the government, the lawsuit says, "All its operations--including the fellowship--are covered by" Title VI and Section 1557. That means the company could lose federal money if it does not change its application criteria, which explicitly restrict the Breakthrough Fellowship to "Black/African American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American" students.

I look forward to the circuit court ruling that deems it right and just that Pfizer actively excludes whites under the "when the left does it" clause of the living constitution.

I have to guess "whites or Asians," or "no statistical difference between any races."

Hispanics, and especially blacks, were least likely to accept the needle.

Hell, I saw one medical Karen during that time proposing to give the vaccine out at fried chicken restaurants, as an incentive for blacks (not kidding).

I saw another Karen doctor who was less free-market minded - he wanted to (again, NOT a joke) drive around in the 'hood shooting blacks with dart guns.

If they had any numbers showing a disproportionate COVID death rate among blacks, you can bet your sweet ass it would have been covered wall to wall on all the news.

It always has. That is why the term was invented. To be non-racist, you just have to be, well, not a racist. To be anti-racist, however, you must become a racist against the culture with historical sin. You must subjugate the culture with the legacy of sin and use their subjugation to advance other cultures, make them richer, etc. It is about punishment and vengeance, not justice.

All of the clever framing and dense academic language around the topic is just so much window-dressing. It is a subtle - and now not subtle at all - transformation of the concept that the system should not be stacked against people based on their racial/ethnic/religious/sex group (e.g., that institutional racism is bad) to the concept that historical evils (real or imagined) of one group means they must be punished today for the benefit of other groups. It is directly cannibalistic and flatly racist (or sexist, or religionist, depending on which flavor is being discussed). It's contemptible and evil. All institutionalized bigotry is contemptible and evil. They can dress it up and call it its opposite, but they cannot change what it is.

114 Because Pfizer accepts reimbursements from the government, the lawsuit says, "All its operations--including the fellowship--are covered by" Title VI and Section 1557. That means the company could lose federal money if it does not change its application criteria, which explicitly restrict the Breakthrough Fellowship to "Black/African American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American" students.

150 Russian males of military age who are arrested at anti-mobilization demonstrations are being directly drafted into the army from the police stations.

I'm sure they'll make great soldiers.

Contrary to Putin's promises, in a number of Russian regions (which are responsible for meeting draft quotas), people appear to be drafted at random, including people with no military experience. In one Russian region, males of military age are forbidden from leaving their home towns. This is very close to press-ganging.

Panic appears to be setting in in a number of areas. There are rumors that the mobilization is going to take a lot more people than the official 300,000 figure.

Putin's careful construct that the Ukraine war is limited to volunteers from poor areas, and that the war doesn't affect the average Russian, has just fallen apart.

If you go and look at her speeches from and since the 2018 campaign when she was elected AG of NY her biggest campaign promise was that she was going to sue Trump and be a constant pain in the ass to him. She actually used those words.

Her rabid base of leftist lunatics has been demanding she do something and she is currently in a very tight reelection campaign in deep blue NY which is pretty remarkable.

The idea that banks wouldn't have done their own independent assessment of the properties before making loans is idiotic. The wouldn't even make a simple home loan without doing that. The whole case was just designed to get headlines before the election.

:: eye-twitch ::

This reminds me of my most-hated term of about 10 years ago: "reverse racism." That was briefly in vogue to describe the rising anti-white racism. Someone once said it in conversation and I lost it. To call it "reverse racism" is to acknowledge - whether you mean to or not (and the people who designed the term certain meant to) - that the natural state of racism, the normal state, is white bigotry toward non-whites. Any other direction is "reversed," that is, abnormal. Non-white bigotry toward whites is unnatural and therefore worthy of comment.

It pissed me off when it was in vogue and it pisses me off now. There is no "reverse racism" or "reverse bigotry." There are just racism and bigotry.

Ive seen many corporate sponsored grants and fellowships in the screenwriting world that are opened to everyone except straight white males, which seems like the peak of discrimination as your excluding one specific group.

These always are under the guise of helping "under represented groups" but they act like a straight white guy walks in to a production company, hedge fund, or fortune 500 business and are immediately given the role of ceo.

I'm guessing if you look at numbers it's actually the opposite, as more often than not it's every other group that sticks together and gives preference to their specific aggrieved group, while white males addres basically going "who's going to make me the most money" not caring what they look like.

175 139 There used to be pretty nasty, legit racism in America. Not universal, but it existed. And it's been snuffed out to a very large degree. I think that deserves some applause, because human cultures simply don't do that spontaneously. It's not really normal, at all. I wish it were easier to celebrate that, instead of being dragged back into the racist mire by power drunk perverts and charlatans.

Animosity and distrust will always exist between racial and ethnic groups. It's a part of the human condition, and it is global, not uniquely American. You can't snuff it out any more than you can snuff out love and hate.

The problem is the totalitarian enforcement of racist culture and racist establishment, currently in the anti-white phase. I got no problem with people hating whites, as long as they have rational reasons for it, but wokeness is anti-rational. It's abandonment of rationality because it's supposedly a 'white construct.' Whites are bad because they are 'punctual?' Bad because they don't want to live with chaos and violent crime? Bad because they have higher average net worth? Those aren't rational reasons.

I'd argue the opposite; racism is a base-level fear in action. Fear of Other is the most common attitude for any sentient animal. Societies and civilizations built up 'institutions' that guard against the worst actions of mankind, allowing us to discard that base-level fear and use a variety of peoples to cooperate and further the society.

289 O/T, I am reading a document on a technology I am dealing with and this document is blowing my mind. Here's an excerpt:
Standard SDIO Function is intended to make SDIO Card usable without installing special function driver so that anybody can use SDIO Card instantly. However, standardization of SDIO function is not essential if IO function drivers can be pre-installed in host system or host device is capable of installing a driver through internet. Standardization of a function application interface (API) is supposed rather much more important to control SDIO device. However function API will depend on kinds of OS.

Set aside the jargon and terms of art. They don't matter. That is barely recognizable as language, and it is not a functional or effective use of language. I doubt this thing was even proofread. If I turned in doc that looked like this, I'd be sent home to sleep off last night's drunk. If I did it twice, I'd probably be fired.

Fun fact: Those were gotten rid of by manufacturers so they could more accurately predict government required MPG estimates across the fleet. Eliminating those vent windows saved 0.3-0.5mpg/vehicle.

The funniest part? People still needed to have airflow, so they began ordering air conditioning, which added to weight and parasitic losses to the engine, reducing mpg by around 2mph/vehicle.

341 I've seen arguments that attempting to whack out the original Hitler would have been a huge mistake during the war. The reasoning was that he was delusional enough that his incompetence was an asset to the Allies, and that his successor would be a far tougher opponent.

Not sure that I agree, but I've seen the argument made.


That's why the British trained and sent the Czech agents to kill Reinhard Heydrich.

I picked up one of those little $1.00 2-oz. bottles of Jack Daniels' Honey this weekend, for use in sweetening and cleaning my pipes. This morning I used it.

351 I hope the suit holds up. Paying Pfizer for a product is not going to be enough.
Grants, contracts for research - that's altogether different.

I'm so sick of the "structural racism" grift which only exists because there wasn't enough racism to pay off anymore.

Anyone with talent and a basic middle class background could get a scholarship and make connections. A basic middle class background (or better) would probably define any recipient of that program.

It's not okay to exclude others because of their race.

Some still score higher on those than others...

That said, I don't mind who I get for any medical service...except, one area where I admit I want to get a certain race and gender for medical service. Blood work. Asian women tend to do the most spectacular blood draws. Almost never any bruising (even on me, a blood cancer patient), no pain, no problems doing it fast and easy, etc. When I show up for my every 3 month blood draws, I'm always hoping I'll be hitting an Asian lady's chair.

I assume they are so good just b/c small fingers and exacting fine motor practice (be it from musical instruments, just straight blood draw practice, etc) makes for great blood draw skills - that, and their confidence, b/c they never worry. It's just easy for them, and a confident stick tends to be a good stick...

There seems to be a market for electric single person transportation devices. Segway is just a bad engineering solution because it's massively overengineered for what it does. There are far simpler, far less expensive solutions.

I see TONS of electric kick scooters and electric bicycles. I also see some one wheel things and some electric skateboards. Those things can be very expensive too, but a Segway is like $7,000.

Have not drank either except by accident since. Not the last time I have been drunk, but the last time I remember the hangover.

Hmf. Didn't think about that one.

Gremlins to me suffered because (a) I'd seen Ghostbusters just before and that was an instant classic, and (b) Gremlins didn't seem to have a single recognizable human in it. They took the characters and tropes from It's a Wonderful Life and added Alien (on a smaller scale).

The SF and fantasy fans I knew then embraced the Murray/Aykroyd/Ramis movie and quoted it incessantly, as we still do here today. Gremlins, not so much.
