The SJW and equality movement

First, my "premise" is that racism is alive and well. The article I linked provides an anecdote that proves it; at least on a very small scale (NC).

Secondly, "The" data? What you presented is hardly considered conclusive by the research community. Most widely bemoan the LACK of actual data to study. To whit:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-02-06/the-debate-around-police-violence-and-racial-bias

Ironically, the quote you lifted has been identified as regretful by the study's authors:

We should have written this sentence more carefully. … What we should have written was a sentence about what we did estimate: As the proportion of White officers in a [fatal officer-involved shooting] increased, a person fatally shot was not more likely to be of a racial minority. This was our mistake, and we appreciate the feedback on this point.

Proof applies to math and alcohol. Your anecdote proves nothing.

Sound like the authors are being bullied by the authoritarian left.
 
You've built quite a moat around your mindset K9.

You find studies that fit your bias.
When same studies are challenged by members of the same academic community from where they spawned, you pawn them off to leftist pressure.
And yet, in your own words, you value diversity of opinions.

I guess its only opinions that support your worldview.

I look for interpretations that fit the data. I'm into facts, not feelings.
 
I first discovered "wokeness" when it started destroying pop culture. Remember when not liking The Last Jedi made you a Nazi?


The comic book industry was killed by wokeness.


Gamergate came down to woke corporations trying to re-educate the masses.

 
It isn't just statues being torn down by the SJWs. They are killing art and culture at an astonishing rate. Look what they did to Dr Who.


EDIT: @David Bailey What are your thoughts on this video?

Applicants for federal government jobs will now be vetted based on their skills rather than if they have a relevant college degree after President Trump on Friday signed an executive order directing his agencies to change their hiring practices.​
At a signing ceremony at the White House, the president and other administration officials said the order would create a more merit-based system and opportunities for Americans who had previously been excluded from the workforce.​


Hopefully this will reduce the number of sjw's in the US federal government since universities are centers of indoctrination and this order will permit hiring qualified applicants without college degrees and end preferences for applicants from elite universities.

Federal Judge: Cuomo And De Blasio Can’t Limit The Size Of Outdoor Religious Services If They Didn’t Care About Limiting The Size Of Protests​
A gratifying victory. The subtext of the ruling, wrote Peter Spiliakos, is that “the NY state and city governments were treating left-wing protest as a de facto state religion and were discriminating against other faiths.”​

Great point. It’s also true that college degrees are highly over-rated. Some degrees more so than others, particularly depending upon your job. And having a college degree sure don’t make you smart.
 
I thought this was interesting. Facebook and Twitter are losing advertisers because those platforms are just too divisive.

Interesting video.

His thesis is that it has become impossible to advertise on social media because one side thinks they permit too much hate speech and the other side thinks they are censoring conservatives. Everyone is offended by social media advertising. At the very end he clarifies what he hopes the result will be: that the far left will be banned. I am not optimistic.

The first article in the video includes many companies which are complaining that there is not enough censorship in social media. They are complaining about "hate speech" and that sounds to me like they are saying social media is not censoring conservatives enough. They want social media to kow tow to sjw's more than they already are. The reason for the corporate boycott on social media advertising is that they think the limited free speech that now exists is still too much free speech.

In the quotes below I am not saying conservatives are racist, I am saying "racism" and "hate speech" are doublespeak for anything that swj's don't agree with. I can't tell if Unilever's use of "divisive speech" is the same but I suspect it is.

There is no place for racism in the world and there is no place for racism on social media,” Coca-Cola CEO and Chairman, James Quincey, said in a statement. “The Coca-Cola Company will pause paid advertising on all social media platforms globally for at least 30 days. We will take this time to reassess our advertising policies to determine whether revisions are needed. We also expect greater accountability and transparency from our social media partners.”​
Following Coca-Cola’s announcement, Levi’s and Dockers said they will be pausing all advertising on Facebook and Instagram through “at least” July: “Facebook must take actions to stop misinformation and hate speech on its platforms. It is an unacceptable affront to our values. We and Dockers are joining the #stophateforprofit campaign and pausing all ads on Facebook.”​
Hershey’s also announced Friday that it will be cutting advertising on Facebook and joining the #stophateforprofit boycott.​
“We do not believe that Facebook is effectively managing violent and divisive speech on their platform. Despite repeated assertions by Facebook to take action, we have not seen meaningful change,” the company said in a statement. “Earlier this month we communicated to Facebook that we were unhappy with their stance on hate speech. We have now cut our spending on Facebook and their platforms, including Instagram, by a third for the remainder of the year. We are hopeful that Facebook will take action and make it a safe space for our consumers to communicate and gather. As a company, we stand for the values of togetherness and inclusion and we are resolute in our commitment to make a difference and be part of positive change.”​
In the week since a group of organizations called on Facebook advertisers to pause their ad spending during the month of July, more than 90 marketers including Verizon, Patagonia, REI, Lending Club and The North Face have announced their intention to join, according to a running list from Sleeping Giants. The group of organizations includes the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, Sleeping Giants, Color of Change, Free Press and Common Sense.​
The organizations said they’re asking Facebook to more stringently police hate speech and disinformation by taking a number of actions, including creating a “separate moderation pipeline” for users who say they’ve been targeted because of their race or religion, or to let advertisers see how frequently their ads appeared near to content that was later removed for misinformation or hate, and allow them refunds for those advertisements.​
The last paragraph I quoted mentions race and religion but not political beliefs. I think that is the give away that the whole thing is double speak and they mean they want conservative opinions censored.

Jim, have you ever worked in a commercial business?

There's a reason industry (forget the government for a second) favors applicants from elite universities. For over 100 years they've proven to be, pound for pound, superior employees to other applicants. That remains true today.

Obviously, this doesn't mean elite universities are the sole source of top flight employees/workers. Many come from second tier universities or even without college degrees (I'm talking more professional jobs here). Still, with the elite universities appealing to the best and brightest young minds (again, on average) its not hard to see how that gristmill produces top talent.

So, in those government jobs that would actually prefer candidates from elite universities AND there are candidates from said elite universities interested in them... I hope we keep considering them appropriately (which means we'll tend to hire them over the non-university options). Certainly for mission critical roles I want the best and brightest.

Let's not forget Trump attended a very elite school himself. (U Penn; Ivy League)

Universities have changed greatly since Trump went to university. Segregation is now being promoted on many campuses.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/05/american-colleges-segregated-housing-graduation-ceremonies/

The pervasiveness of neo-segregation marks a troubling era of racial politics on college campuses. Career diversicrats such as Yale University president Peter Salovey say that neo-segregated programs foster diversity and inclusion, but they don’t. Rather, neo-segregation erodes students’ sense of unity, reduces the quality of intellectual life on campus, and perpetuates discredited racialist thinking.
Evergreen State College is a cautionary tale about what happens when segregation is not only encouraged, but enforced, on campus. Apparently the College is in financial trouble now, because enrollment dropped precipitously after what happened there.
