Closing the “Stuff Gap”

598 words

Duke University’s Black students are outraged that the institution had the nerve to perform a study which confirmed the obvious . . .

The most immediate cause for students’ anger is an as-yet unpublished study by Duke researchers saying black students match the GPA of whites over time in part because they switch to majors that require less study time and have less stringent grading standards. Opponents of affirmative action are citing the study in a case they want the U.S. Supreme Court to consider.

Whether or not it’s the truth is irrelevant. What’s relevant is the comfort level of the privileged caste. We need to worry less about findings and more about feelings

But the students say the research is just one example of an environment in which many black students feel uncomfortable. The document they gave to administrators cites concerns over the future location of the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture and the status of the Black Student Alliance invitational weekend, an annual event the students say is in jeopardy because of the administration’s lack of support.

[...]

Some of the students’ recommendations include establishing an endowment to create a stable funding source for cultural events and academic programs involving black students, and for the creation of a special university working group to assess whether blacks feel the climate at Duke is unwelcoming.

Despite their supposed lack of intelligence, they do seem to have rather intelligently exploited this episode to drum up funding for their race-specific projects. Blacks at Duke are owed something after all, given how disastrously the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax panned out for them. According to the article, “Bad feelings over that case linger in Durham to this day.”

Merely a few days ago, a nearly identical crisis struck a high school in Tennessee when the principal foolishly noted that Blacks in his school were scoring lower on the state’s standardized test. The truth is no defense. In fact, the truth is so heinous that Principal Horrell found himself besieged with outraged victims demanding that he apologize for stating the obvious. He indulged them with pious self-flagellation, of course.

“I unintentionally offended a number of students on this campus,” Germantown High School Principal Ted Horrell wrote in the letter. “I apologize to all the students and parents who were offended.”

During a school presentation last week, Horrell reportedly laid out the results of the Germantown High’s Tennessee state report card, which breaks down standardized test scores by race and income. The assembly aimed to discuss how the school can close the achievement gap and introduce a new program that would offer assistance to struggling students.

But a number of parents and students were offended by the presentation, arguing that it only created a greater divide among students as some students found it reason to start mocking black students for “being dumb,” according to WMC-TV.

The irony here is that the naive fools who honestly care about “the gap” are the ones bringing up the insensitive data and instigating the hurtful discussion. They’re loyal to the emperor and wish to increase the opacity of his robe, unlike the more cynical subjects who know the score.

The score is that these Black groups on these campuses don’t want to “close the gap” in aptitude scores and actual performance. They only want to close the “stuff gap”, wherein White people have more stuff. Unlike the other gaps, this one can actually be closed. Great strides have been made and will continue to be made in the pivotal civil rights campaign to extract stuff from Whitey.

    “Great strides have been made and will continue to be made in the pivotal civil rights campaign to extract stuff from Whitey.”

    …such as our co-evolutionary women.

    That Duke study is really true. I don’t think a single black student graduated in either of my majors in college, and we’re not talking a top 20, maybe top 50, school. Certainly not Duke.

      A major distinction between college and high school and other professional schools is that the student can tailor his curriculum, with great lattitude in liberal arts schools. I recall a strategy was to take a few cake-walk classes in order to pad your GPA somewhat. Everyone respects a 4.0 in electrical engineering much more than in sociology or English for example. That’s why standardized tests are important to cross check GPAs. I bet there is soon to be a major overhaul of the standardized testing system in order to blurr the racial divides better, similar to that which happened with the SAT in the 90s.

      Steve Sailer’s blog has an interesting post about GRE scores by graduate program this morning.

    As regards “stuff”, perhaps using the Negro vernacular [pidgin English] to describe it would give unenlightened Whites a clearer picture of race reality. A typical jive mumbling street Negro would stereotypically say: “We want mo’ of the [White] man’s shit, including his ‘White chicks’, cause we be scriminated against fo’ so long”.

    Why does anyone speak publicly about racial differences if they will then inevitably be forced to retract their statement and issue a public apology? Either don’t say anything or stand by your word. These fake apologies make us look like pussies, and further discourage the truth from being spoken.

    Oh no! We don’t wanna anger the blacks! Anything but that! They’re the brand new sacred cow of our society! They might call in Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, or, worse yet, start another L.A. riot!
