College: No Place for White Males
In both the United States and England, white males are seeing their college enrollment numbers drop while women and racial minorities are making gains.
An analysis by the Pell Institute says that poor and working-class white men are enrolling in college at lower rates than poor and working-class black, Asian, and Hispanic men.
According to The Wall Street Journal, women currently outnumber men in American universities three to two. If the trend continues, a researcher from the National Student Clearinghouse says that over the next few years, two women will receive a college diploma for every male that graduates. This is despite the fact that women only comprise 49% of the college-age population.
As you would reasonably infer from his name, Jerlando Jackson is black. He works at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Education and says, “As a country, we don’t have the tools yet to help white men who find themselves needing help. To be in a time when there are groups of white men that are falling through the cracks, it’s hard.”
Does that mean everything being hammered into students’ skulls about America being a white-male patriarchy is a lie?
In England, white-male enrollment in universities has dropped by 10% over the past seven years. White males are the only demographic in the country to see their raw numbers drop in college enrollment — every other group has seen gains. Only 13% of white working-class English males go on to higher education.
Peter Edwards, a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Oxford, says:
I have seen the real distaste and disdain of academics for the mores of the white working-class male. These young people have much to contribute and their ambitions must now be rekindled. My concern is that their sense of feeling forgotten at the expense of other groups will lead to grave societal problems.
He speaks the truth, so he will probably be forced to resign. After all, he works at a prestigious university.
Don’t Call Them Gangs: African Teens Frolic Through the Anglosphere
In 2018, when an estimated “100 rampaging Sudanese youths gathered ‘for war’ and bragged authorities ‘can’t touch us’ as they hurled rocks at the riot squad” in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, police told locals to “stay inside and lock their doors” but insisted that the rampaging youths were “no threat to safety.
In 2019, when “African youths” committed at least 20 smash-and-grab robberies at stores throughout Sydney, Australia, in one incident dislocating an elderly woman’s pelvis as they fled, police described it as “shoplifting” and said “I would not describe them as gangs.”
In 2020, attempting to pooh-pooh reports of “African gang crime,” an Australian newspaper published an article titled “African-Australian youths crushed by the weight of daily prejudice and stereotyping.”
Recently in the Dublin suburb of Balbriggan — whose population consists of at least 11% African immigrants — “about 30 youths of mainly African origin” shut down a local shopping center by brawling outside in an incident that necessitated a police helicopter to help quell it.
Naturally, the Irish press had to step in and tell the local yokels not to believe their lying eyes. An article in The Journal claimed that “the far Right” was trying to “ignite racial tensions in the town” and “stir up division and hatred against members of the black community living in the area” by deftly using “conspiracy theories” about “roaming African gangs.”
What are the citizens of any self-respecting nation to do when their media, government, and press have declared war on them?
Black Woman From Africa Crowned Miss England
Last week, I wrote about a black woman from South Africa who was named Miss Ireland for the upcoming Miss World Pageant. This week, I bring the news that Rehema Muthamia, a black woman from Kenya, will represent England in the same pageant. She replaces the former Miss England, the India-born Bhasha Mukherjee.
Ireland is but a wee 1% black, whereas England is a far more robust 3.5% black, but then again, the newly-crowned Mr. England is also black.
Somalian-Born Cop Who Shot White Woman Dead in Minnesota Has Murder Conviction Dropped
In 2020, when white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin somewhat gently knelt on a fentanyl-addled, banana-swinging, convicted black armed robber named George Floyd, the nation burned and Chauvin received a 22.5-year sentence for murder.
In 2017, when a Somalian-born rookie Minneapolis cop named Mohamed Noor shot dead a white woman who’d called police to report the sounds of a woman screaming, he was sentenced to third-degree murder based on the idea that he put “others” in danger for his hasty decision to squeeze the trigger.
Apparently, those “others” did not include the woman he killed.
Last week, the Minnesota Supreme Court overturned Noor’s murder conviction and ordered his resentencing. Noor had already served two years of a 12.5-year sentence. The maximum sentence he can receive now for second-degree manslaughter is ten years.
There is no minimum sentence. He may be a free man soon.
Black-on-White Murders You Didn’t Hear About This Week
Fred and Peggy White are a pair of white senior citizens who were shot and killed in their homes last week in Twiggs County, Georgia. Charged with their murder is a sourpussed black fella named Charles Rowland, who had already served ten years for armed robbery and eleven years for forgery and assaulting a police officer. He is allegedly seen in this video lurking near the Whites’ back door before busting into their house and killing them.
In what appears to have been a domestic dispute between interracial lovers, 28-year-old Megan Gustafson was allegedly shot dead in Grand Forks, North Dakota last Sunday morning after an argument with 26-year-old Ahmed Abdullahi.
Until last week, Michael Bishop was a 29-year-old white man from Latonia, Kentucky, but now he’s a corpse after being shot several times in the chest. Keyshawn McCoy is the 18-year-old black male charged with shooting him. If you look at the comments section in the article about the murder, it consists almost entirely of spam about how you can get rich working from home.
This country is doomed.
Painting the Schools Black
Josh Thompson looks gayer than a sprig of mistletoe on a festive winter’s vest. He teaches English at a Virginia high school and insists that school guidelines called Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports [PBIS] that ask kids to sit still, listen to the teacher, and stop stabbing one another in class constitutes “white supremacy”:
I stated that PBIS [Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports] is white supremacy with a hug and a lot of y’all wanted to know more about that . . . so if PBIS concerns itself with positive behaviors, we have to ask ourselves, “Okay well what are those positive behaviors?” And it’s things like making sure that you’re following directions, and making sure that you’re sitting quietly, and you are in your seat and all these things that come from white culture. . . . The idea of just sitting quiet and being told stuff and taking things in, in a passive stance, is not a thing that’s in many cultures. So if we’re positively enforcing these behaviors, we are by extension positively enforcing elements of white culture. Which therefore keeps whiteness at the center, which is the definition of white supremacy.
You heard it, black students of Josh Thompson. There is no need to behave in his classroom. If you pay any attention to him at all, you are enabling white supremacy. If he doesn’t award you the highest possible grade, you possibly have grounds for suing him based on racial discrimination.
Crystal Duncan Lane is a fat, grey-haired teacher with no sense of style and possible bad breath. She teaches a class on disabilities at Virginia Tech and recently apologized for being white in the course syllabus:
I am a Caucasian cisgender female and first-generation college student from Appalachia who is of Scottish, British, and Norwegian heritage. I am married to a cisgender male, and we are middle class. While I did not “ask” for the many privileges in my life: I have benefitted from them and will continue to benefit from them whether I like it or not. . . . I am and will continue to work on a daily basis to be antiracist and confront the innate racism within myself that is the reality and history of white people. . . . I want to be better: Every day. I will transform: Every day. This work terrifies me: Every day. I invite my white students to join me on this journey. And to my students of color: I apologize for the inexcusable horrors within our shared history.
How about you apologize for your haircut and those stupid beads you’re wearing instead?
Robert Jensen is a retired journalism professor from the University of Texas at Austin. If the picture of him in the linked article is any indication, he appears to be in the late stages of AIDS. Jensen is also the author of books with self-gelding titles such as The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men and The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism and White Privilege. In a recent essay called “‘A Certain Terror’: A White Male Perspective on Being an Ally,’” he talks about being a white male feminist struggling with his “allyship”:
I have found that my life improved once I began to learn about the history and contemporary practice of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism. That knowledge led me to yearn for something more than being a white guy. I saw the negative effects of those systems not just on women and people of color but on me. The argument from justice that I already understood, but rarely acted from, was bolstered by a new argument from self-interest, the pursuit of a more fully human self. . . . I am in this to save my own life. . . . But that raises another thorny question: Given all the excellent books by women and people of color, why am I writing at all? . . . Because it is the right thing for me to do. Because it is in my self-interest. Because I want to love and be loved. Because I want to touch and be touched.
I would like to think that in a truly equitable world, women and black people would hate him this guy as much as I do.
