Racism and the PC Inquisition

John Bennett, American Thinker, May 17, 2012

Monday last week, The Chronicle of Higher Education announced that Naomi Schaefer Riley was fired from their blog “Brainstorm” for writing that black studies programs should be “eliminated” because they are “left-wing victimization claptrap.” The next day, the News & Observer of Raleigh reported that a staggering 54 classes were suspected of academic fraud at UNC-Chapel Hill. Every single one of those 54 classes was within UNC’s Department of African and Afro-American studies, according to a UNC investigation. Is it pure coincidence that academic fraud found such a welcoming and statistically unlikely home in the black studies department? Or is it predictable that the department with the most rigid PC orthodoxy created a cloister for academic fraud?

The incessant pressure of political correctness is not just an academic matter. Any standard of conduct, any law, any test is called racist if minorities on average can’t meet the standard, follow the law, or obtain identical scores compared to non-minorities. The result can only be described as a PC Inquisition, which gives rise to orthodoxy with real-world consequences. In general, any discussion of pressing social problems is silenced if minority groups are described as responsible for their own actions and circumstances.

The current era of intellectual dishonesty and pathological guilt hustling began in earnest with the 1965 Moynihan Report. Senator Moynihan was berated as a “racist” for suggesting that the weakening of the black family would lead to social chaos, even though he blamed family breakdown on joblessness and the lingering effects of slavery. Today, William Julius Wilson, perhaps the most respected sociologist in America on questions of race and poverty, has repeatedly vindicated Moynihan’s report, calling it “an important and prophetic document.” It took decades of tragedy and pious fraud for society to eventually face up to the costs of broken families. Yet the PC Inquisition continues to distort our discussions of key issues like education and crime.

University of Pennsylvania researchers Erling Boe and Suie Shin stunningly concluded that a “major impediment to higher average achievement scores in the U.S. is the performance of its black and Hispanic students.” Boe and Shin note:

If these minority students were to perform at the same level as white students, the U.S. would lead all the other G7 nations (including Japan) in reading and would lead the Western G5 nations in mathematics and science, though it would still trail Japan in these subjects. [1]

Yet the American educational “system” is constantly blamed for the underperformance of certain groups of students. The “system” is also blamed for the false crisis of the “achievement gap” between minority and nonminority students. PC bureaucrats are willing to sacrifice the interests of talented students in pursuit of social engineering projects. The Washington Post reports that honors classes are being abolished from the curriculum in Fairfax, VA, and in many other schools around the country. Schools generally have three tracks of courses: basic, honors, and advanced placement (AP). Honors classes are being eliminated because “traditionally underrepresented minorities” are not taking enough AP courses. {snip}

The topic of race and crime is taboo, especially amongst those who consider themselves daring and broad-minded thinkers. The trend of racial “flash mob” violence by black teens against “random” non-black victims has gone relatively unnoticed, when it should be a national scandal. Several people have died in separate incidents of the “knock-out game,” a race-based and unmentioned disgrace. As for crime rates overall, the picture is stark: the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control lists the homicide rate per 100,000 as 23.1 for blacks, 7.8 for Native Americans, 7.6 for Hispanics, 2.7 for whites, and 2.4 for Asians. The reality of crime in America is that the white and Asian homicide rate is on par with Finland’s. The American black homicide rate is on par with those of Zambia and Rwanda (22.9 and 26.6 per 100,000, respectively). Any discussion of “America’s” supposedly violent culture that does not take race into account and disaggregate the statistics is terribly misleading.

{snip}

Racism is the new heresy. As with every observation about predominantly minority issues, Riley’s remarks represented a heresy. She failed to genuflect to groups that have been officially declared beyond criticism. We are truly in a period where ideology and tribal loyalty have placed free inquiry on the defensive.

Political correctness is proselytized and defended by American liberals with a greater level of zealotry than that found in any form of mainstream Judeo-Christian religious belief. There is no religious institution with the power to rival the combined Holy Office of the media, the academy, and the political soapbox. The noxious incantations of victimization and anti-white hostility echo from universities—more so than from any other source. {snip}

Since left-wing academics encourage drawing lessons from “anti-colonial struggles,” universities should be equally open to scholarship drawing lessons from the experience of whites in South Africa or the former Rhodesia and applying those to our understanding of race relations in modern America. There is a very specific reason why anti-colonial studies are encouraged and rewarded, while the latter is effectively prohibited.

{snip}

{snip} But the Inquisition continues; the left places no limit on the lies, excuses, white guilt, cultural degradation, and bad policy that flow from political correctness. The only limit will come when people of all races confidently stand for colorblind justice and free inquiry. That would mean that individuals and groups are respected—or criticized—based on the content of their character as it is revealed by their actions.

Another Birther Rumor Foiled As Literary Agent Comes Forward

"This was nothing more than a fact-checking error by me -- an agency assistant at the time," Miriam Goderich, who worked for the literary agency Acton & Dystel, told Yahoo News. "There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii."

Sounds like a smaller version of the Cloward=Pliven plan for the US. Overload the system with unsustainable
social welfare freebies until the system implodes. Chaos results. In the chaos the socialists see their grand opportunity. US cities burning down fits perfectly. Social chaos worked for the Stalin/Lenin/Marx Bolsheviks in Russia 1917, didn't it? They even got to assassinate the Tsar's entire extended family. Guess who will be on the list in the US?

Putting the Toothpaste Back in the Tube, Chapter 3: The Rule of Law and Race Realism

AWD writes: "Stemming from the notion of genetically-based “sociotypes”, we move on to the United States of America—the so-called “creedal” or “proposition” nation; a “society of laws, not men.”

This, of course, has been transmogrified into a complete joke courtesy the typical wishful thinking borne of the deranged progressive mind.

Presuming any given group of people is inherently capable of maintaining law and order and the application of justice is as preposterous as presuming that any given group of people is inherently capable of understanding and applying the mathematics found in a calculus text book. I.e., just because it’s written down, and perhaps even explained to them, doesn’t mean that they necessarily have any capacity to comprehend it, let alone transmit that understanding to younger generations.


This vein of thinking may shed some light on why any and every black-majority society inevitably implodes—whether we’re speaking of entire countries like Zimbabwe, wintry cities like Detroit, or sunny paradises like Haiti. Absent a large enough majority of people who are capable of a) understanding the law, and b) respecting the law, law and order—and justice—will simply disappear.

(For the dolts out there, the obvious must be stated: Clearly there exist blacks capable of understanding and upholding the law. But, inductively, it would seem that they are not of sufficient number to provide the critical mass necessary for a black society to be self-sustaining—let alone self-improving.)

In short: There is nothing magical about a Constitution. What is magical is a people’s will and ability to respect its intent and obey its duties and proscriptions. Some peoples of the earth are, demonstrably speaking, capable of such respect and obedience. Others—likewise demonstrably—are not.

To pretend that all walks of life are equally capable of [collectively] behaving like civilized human beings is, at best, an exercise in intellectual dishonesty—and, at worst, cultural and racial suicide."

DJ,

You must be far too busy to keep up with my posts. I covered this yesterday. Where were you? I sided with Michael Savage and even Mark Levin. While Willard made some good speeches lately, and his team is supposed to be in it to win it, he's beginning too look more and more like the turkey I suspected he'd turn out to be, i,e, McCain 2008 re-dux. His "repudiation" of superpac plan for Wright/Obama convinces me that Willard is fully capable of snatching defeat from certain victory. When even Sean Hannity, who Savage calls a water boy for GOP, has to get on Romney for not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time, we can see where this is going. Savage says it's all over for Romney amd GOP chance to take the WH. I don't go that far, but I feel Savage's disappointment. However if Willard picks a lackluster VP, I may side with Savage who says it's all over for Romney. Goopers.

Gringoman,

I disagree. I think Willard made the correct choice to repudiate the linking of Obama to Wright tactic. I say that because endorsing the Super-PAC brings unnecessary risks along with it. What I mean is it would play right into Axelrod's hand. Axelrod could and certainly would redefine Willard's campaign as one which is mainly consisting of attacking Obama on non-substantive issues. The way I see it is if Romney stays on message, that being: Obama's failed economic and job creating policies coupled with running up the National Debt at a clip of 1.3 trillion a year... and will continue to do so during a second term, then Willard will be sure to win. OTOH, if he allows his campaign to get sidetracked by superfluous issues he will certainly lose. Moreover, the time to attack Barry by linking him to Rev Wright has long since past. I would've worked for McCain, but it won't work for Willard. Obama/Wringht is stale news. Romney was smart to repudiate it. Sorry G-man, but I think you and Monsieurs Savage and Levin are wrong on this one. We shall see....

Dunbazz doesn't know how the MSM is manipulating him. The dimwit can't figure out that the PC commissars are trying their hardest to flip the scrip. You see in the face of widespread and ongoing unprovoked violent attacks on whites by blacks, of course the Lame Stream Media is going to try to divert attention away from what's really happening. They are trying to create the appearance there is equivalence between black on white hate and white on black hate. In reality the balance is completely tipped to the black hate/violence against whites side. But Mammy's little Rafie is too brainwashed to see it. Typical white lib.
