The pipeline of students who will be tomorrow's tech leaders is alarmingly vanilla.
According to a new analysis of test-takers, not a single girl, African-American or Hispanic student took the computer science Advanced Placement test in Mississippi or Montana last year. More than a third of the population in Mississippi is black.
In other words, a hugely disproportionate bunch of white guys took the test.
St Martin Luther King managed to find the White Man's moral soft spot and convinced him that he was the most evil creature in history. The descendants of the greatest civilization in history were merely talked into surrendering. Then White Women turned around and stabbed their men in the back.
...the 1965 Immigration Act applied the attitude behind the 1964 Civil Rights Act to the entire world. If one of the consequences of the CRA was that American blacks were to be treated in effect as American whites’ superiors—because whites were to be denied freedom of association—the consequence of the Immigration Act was to make all foreign non-whites legally superior to white American citizens.I have a set of responses to this but they not printable. I merely link to this.
I’m very much a person who doesn’t seek blame. All things happen by my hand. That may be delusional but, what happens is of my action. With this, I believe I’m in the minority when I say, white men did this. This is the fault of the white man for allowing it to happen. You can point fingers whichever way you choose if that suits you better but, the finger should be given to us. Women, immigrants, homos, whatever. They wouldn’t have had a voice had the majority in power (white men) allowed it to happen in the first place. Was it a blatant rollover? Was the wool pulled over our eyes?
"Until just over a decade ago, homosexual intercourse was a crime in many jurisdictions. Then in 2003, the Supreme Court overturned the sodomy laws in Lawrence v. Texas, which was in my view a bad decision with a good outcome. That same year, California considered a civil-union law, which was the source of some controversy. Opponents argued that it was a step toward the much more serious issue of gay marriage, and Democrats rejected that as a red herring: “Nobody is talking about gay marriage,” said John Longville, a Democratic assemblyman, “except the people who are trying to wave it around as a straw-man issue.” Within five years, that straw man was flesh and blood.
Along the way the conversation changed from whether states could legalize gay marriage to whether states could prohibit it, and from whether the federal government should recognize same-sex marriage to whether it could refuse to do so. The Democratic governor of Kentucky says that he desires the Supreme Court to “bring finality and certainty to this matter,” which, given his party affiliation, is a way of saying without saying that he wants a national legal mandate for gay marriage.
And the matter already has progressed to the point at which we as a nation, having only recently legalized gay marriage, are debating the question of whether bakers and photographers should be locked in cages if they decline, for their own moral or religious reasons, to participate in gay weddings.
Everything not forbidden is compulsory.”
Two slices of bacon sauteed in olive oil, then adding chopped sweet onion, then chunks of chicken thigh til cooked through, finally a handful of white beans and fire-roasted tomatoes. Add generous shakes of garlic powder, cumin --my favorite spice--, then a sprinkling of salt and a few shots of hot sauce. Mix up.
He had learned, and not a moment too soon, to watch what women do and ignore what they say about their romantic needs. For all the men who knew nothing about what women wanted, even fewer women knew themselves.
There is a term of art in economics that I like: “revealed preference.” The root idea is: Never mind what people say they prefer, or what some pure-reason formula proves they should prefer, but what their behavior shows they actually prefer.
"The notion of innate equality would seem antithetical to fascism as the term is commonly understood. Yet since equality is a well-meaning human-generated delusion rather than a real or organic phenomenon observable anywhere in nature, it must be enforced by increasingly totalitarian measures.
Thus, once the seemingly open-minded liberalism I knew and embraced as a kid started gaining power and steamrolling over all opposition, it metastasized into an all-consuming doctrine of coercion, shaming, groupthink, and unblinking thought-suppression that would fit most of my preconceived notions about what constitutes fascism. Modern leftist psychology is supremely collectivist and intolerant of dissent—two commonly accepted defining traits of fascism."Italics courtesy of ExC.
"Could it be because they don’t actually want to continue the dialogue with people of faith, but rather seek to leverage the growing majority in favor of gay equality to rhetorically bludgeon the “bigots” into submission, to create a world in which they call the shots the way homophobes used to? Could it be that they enjoy policing the discourse now that they seem in the majority?"
“I, state name here, [but everyone just repeats Stymie's name], a member of good standing of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club, do solemnly swear to be a he-man and hate women and not play with them or touch them unless I have to and especially never fall in love and, if I do, may I die slowly and painfully and suffer for hours or until I scream bloody murder.” — The Little Rascals
"Together, Hannah’s spineless beta male father and her indulgent co-dependent mother have quite literally created a monster. An attention-hording, sugar-chomping, friend-abusing, weakness-exploiting little asshole of a monster."Some day they may their own little Rachel suing them in court...
