Invisible College Barrier?

Invisible College Barrier? No!
Invisible College Barrier? No!

Certain sorts are complaining that underrepresented minority (URM) – yes, that’s now a term in college circles – students are facing invisible barriers in public colleges which prevent them from getting or completing the degrees that they want. And those invisible barriers are grades. And this, of course, is racist and needs to be addressed.

Let’s start with the fact that minorities are most likely not underrepresented, if enrollment figures have maintained the rates that they had for a long time. A five-year average showed that 4.98% of Whites, 6.22% of Blacks, and 4.1% of Latinos enrolled in college each year. So, that pretty much throws the Underrepresented Minority (URM) into the trash heap where all such lies belong.

But that “invisible barrier” to minority students is hardly invisible at all. It’s in plain sight, like all or most actual scholastic requirements in colleges, especially large public universities. They do gate off popular majors, limiting them out of necessity to those students with the best GPAs in prerequisite courses for those respective majors. These grade requirements conserve the various departments’ limited resources by acting as a winnowing tool, which makes sure that the strongest students enter those majors and lower-performing students are directed to other majors that the universities’ faculties believe they can better handle.

I got in here,” she [Gonzales] told me this summer, which she spent finishing her degree in a different major. “I did the application. I did the essays. I was accepted. But then there was another admissions process I didn’t even know about. It was like running a race with one leg.”

It’s quite simple really. When competing for resources, those who can show that they will make the best use of those resources will gain them and those that don’t show that won’t get them. If minorities can’t successfully compete – a falsehood, judging by UC Berkely’s graduates demographic figures – it’s neither the universities faults nor their “problem” to solve.

Most certainly, the growing trend of using “holistic” means of judging a major candidates’ worthiness to claim one of the seats in a college/major, is not a means that provides true benefit. It just ends up lowering the bar, but only for certain classes of applicant.

College Economics 1001

College Economics 1001
College Economics 1001

This about sums up the rank and malodorous hypocrisy of Freshman Economics as it is now taught in the reeking cesspits of Leftism that are the vast majority of what are called colleges and universities in America.

Then, this is what had to happen since we allowed these institutions to degenerate to the point that they effectively and tacitly, though rarely overtly, run all professorial candidates and all course syllabi through their departments of Intersectionality, Gender, and Racial Justice for preapproval.

The Indoctrination Gap

The Indoctrination Gap
The Indoctrination Gap

Periodically – normally either while they’re losing an election or immediately after having lost one – our domestic enemies will bemoan the “education gap” between them and Americans, who vote for Republicans. The rest of the time they tend to be patronizing and sarcastic about it and those “ignorant bumpkins” in rural America.

Yet, what is truer is that there is a widening Indoctrination Gap between the Leftists and the American people. A couple of generations of ever-increasing left-wing indoctrination being added to- or disguised as “higher education” has both guaranteed that college graduates would at least lean Left and that Americans would more and more reject the institutions that did this and which continue to escalate their doing of it.

And, to cement things and increase both the divide and the Leftists’ indoctrination of the college educated, the graduates’ incurred debt, declining ROI on their education, and the need or implanted desire to move to higher cost of living urban centers, all conspire to both separate the two groups further and to make Americans think poorly of college as path to take in life.

But hey! What do I know? I’m just a deplorable, knuckle-dragging ignoramus…

Outrageous Costumes

Well, America is coming up on Halloween again. Hence, it’s the season where we’re inundated by ranting and whining complaints from snowflakes, SJWs, minority grifters, and the White, Liberal enablers of the former three about outrageous and/or inappropriate Halloween costumes.

Outrageous Costumes

Yep! Every one of the twelve costumes depicted above would be declared offensive and inappropriate by America’s domestic enemies. They’d each be considered: Cultural Appropriation, Offensive Cultural Reduction, Anti-Women, and or too likely to offend some portion of the residents inside America’s borders.

Personally, I say where whatever you want to wear. Enjoy what you can of what others are wearing. And, if push comes to shove, teach the snowflakes and their fellow travelers the old, real meaning of Halloween if they dare to complain. 😉

VA’s Weeping Vaginas

Ugly Bitch Crying - Weeping VaginasVA’s weeping vaginas are especially dripping and snotty right now. Yep, the titularly female millennials of the toxic wave of feminism on the University of Mary Washington’s campus are suing their college for not sufficiently protecting them from people who “said mean things” to or about them on an anonymous social media app Yik Yak.

They claim that, by not blocking Yik Yak on the school’s Wi-Fi, the university fostered a sexually hostile environment that failed to “protect the Plaintiffs from [the] effects” of the offensive yaks.

But then, this is par for the course for the womyn of modern feminism. They demand special protections from opposing views and other things that offend them. And, to sort of give them the benefit of the doubt, these womyn have been so misraised that they are actually viscerally threatened by such things, which makes their demands logical in a way, if still heinous, counterproductive, anti-American, and rather anti-feminist.

Weeping Vaginas Aren’t Men’s Equals

Weeping vaginas that a screaming and engaging in lawfare to gain specials protections from opposing views that offend them, especially if such offense actually scares them, aren’t men’s equals. They may well be sadly the equal of the penis-bearing snowflakes but not of actual men. Indeed, they can’t even rightfully claim to believe that they’re the equals of men since they spend so much time claiming oppression and the need for coddling and protection at the expense of other’s basic freedoms.
