… I am a White Guy , I do not Suck , and …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 13th,2014

.. I am not Sorry ..

.. so what ? I am white . So What do people think that I should do ? Get a colour transplant ? … No ! …

.. Be who you are , and be honest about who you are . You are an individual , not a part of a group . Your rights are God – given , not those that are given by a Government …

.. do not denigrate those who are of one skin colour or another . They are who they are and what they were meant to be . Defend who they are , and stand up for who you are , but just do not whack people in the face about it . Rubbing it in another ‘ s face and rubbing it in is a good way to start a fight , and that is never good .

.. those White – Power and White – Pride goobers are grossly insecure about who they are . They are also damn fools . Especially when they rub their supposed ” racial pride ” in another ‘ s face …

.. we are all a part of one human family . White . Black . Asian . African – American , or whatever you are . We are all human , so act like one . Be an adult about it , instead of acting like a child ..

.. ideally , be someone of faith . If you do not believe in God , at least have some kind of reason for it . Do not let it be because you are lazy . Read either the Bible , the Talmud , the Bahgavad Gita , the Torah Scrolls , or the Koran [any of which are available in an accurate English translation] . I would be willing to guess that you will be a believer in something …

.. I was christened in the United Methodist Church . I was raised in the United Presbyterian Church . But , I have now converted to Roman Catholicism . Why ? It is what I believe in , and it is true to my belief system and philosophy . My process of conversion led me to do something that I believed is important : Study the Holy Bible . Yes , to me , as a Catholic , that is important ….

.. it is because of not only what I believe , but also why I believe it ….

.. I do not and will not denigrate what you will believe in . Just take a stand , and believe in something . Those ideals are a good base from which to lead one ‘ s life …

… No , Don , You have Made a Serious Mistake [criticizing POTUS] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 3rd,2014

.. Don Lemon is a young anchor at C.N.N. . Unlike most of the sturm und dreke at that network , Lemon has real possibilities . He is fairly liberal , though , but that does not bother me all that much . The guy has guts ….

.. in this instance , though , I believe that he has made a very serious mistake . This comes from where he was considering , as a professional , how much to criticize POTUS . The big problem with Lemon in this case is that he is taking race into account …

.. Yes , race . If he wants to be taken seriously as a professional , he should expect and deal with criticism as a professional , not a black professional . Ideally , it should be coming at him as someone who is a professional who happens to be black . The same applies to his ability to criticise POTUS …

.. He should criticize him as a President , not as our country ‘ s first black President (which Barack Obama certainly is) . The way in which it should happen is that he is POTUS , who happens to be black , and , to be honest , not so god damned thin – skinned ….

… How Dense is Main InJustice …

.. and with this one , you can add Main MisEducation to the mix …

Race-Based Admissions after Fisher

.. It is depressing that the legality and morality of racial discrimination in education continues to be a contested issue.

English: United States Supreme Court

English: United States Supreme Court (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

.. You have to consider the so – called “guidance” that was issued by the ObamaCraps for universities on the meaning of the Supreme Court’s decision last June in Fisher v. University of Texas. The guidance (and accompanying “Questions & Answers “)predictably reiterates that the administration “strongly support[s] diversity” — including, of course, using discrimination in order to achieve it — but, as a legal matter, this is irrelevant if a school is sued .

.. The fact is that this “guidance” is designed not to help schools follow the law , but to push them to adopt dubious race-based policies that the Supreme Court has warned against . These policies will continue to provoke and prompt lawsuits , but are policies that the ObamaCraps and its political allies stubbornly support. The whole tone of the new guidance is to offer encouragement to schools that want to engage in racial discrimination: The administration promises that it “will continue to be a resource” for such schools. It is as if the FBI offered eager encouragement to state and local police that wanted to engage in racial profiling without violating the law.

.. What is worse though, is that the guidance is probably telling many schools just what they want to hear: Study after study by the Center for Equal Opportunity has shown that universities across the country are only too happy to weigh race very heavily indeed in their admissions. What they end up doing is taking up race as not one factor  , but as the primary factor . Which is not what the Supreme Court  had in mind , or intended .

.. If they (and their lawyers) read the Fisher decision honestly, it ought to make them gulp and reconsider such discriminatory policies. And I should add that, in the run-up to the ruling, it became clear how increasingly unpopular and discredited racial preferences in admissions are, even among liberals who had once supported them. This ought to prompt some serious soul-searching among university presidents on whether “diversity” is really worth the price of racial discrimination.

In Fisher, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that, before race can be used in university admissions, a university must give “serious, good faith consideration of workable race-neutral alternatives” to achieving the goals that are purportedly being achieved by weighing race in admissions decisions. The high court said that the lower court, on remand, “must assess whether the university has offered sufficient evidence that would prove that its admissions program is narrowly tailored to obtain the educational benefits of diversity.” The Court also said that there must be “a careful judicial inquiry into whether a university could achieve sufficient diversity without using racial classifications.” And: “The reviewing court must ultimately be satisfied that no workable race-neutral alternatives would produce the educational benefits of diversity.” A nondiscriminatory approach must be used if it “could promote the substantial interest about as well and at tolerable administrative expense.”

There is certainly enough in this language to justify an aggressive and thorough challenge to universities’ use of race in admissions, and so they should expect as much. Universities must now be able to document their consideration of alternatives to weighing race, including any reason for not adopting such alternatives. If they do not , they will regret it .

..  A particular example would be documentation of how the educational benefits of considering race in admissions would be greater than the educational benefits of considering other, nonracial factors instead. How is education improved by using race, exactly — and how much, exactly, are those benefits of “diversity” enhanced by considering race in admissions, rather than nonracial characteristics that provide actual diversity in backgrounds, such as income or parents’ professions/educational level or geography or age or work experience or whatever?

If a nonracial admissions system would achieve similar benefits and with fewer costs, then the consideration of race cannot be said to have been narrowly tailored to the achievement of those benefits.

More fundamentally, schools must now be able to document why and how race is considered in student admissions and must periodically review and rejustify those considerations. And they must be able to document not only (a) the anticipated benefits but also (b) the possible costs associated with the consideration of race in student admissions at the university — and especially, with regard to the latter, the relative academic performance of members of groups that have received such favorable consideration …
