Government of the self was the original basis for republican government, reflecting the view that civil society was much more than politics. Society was made up of men and women who gave order to their lives by entering into associations on a voluntary basis, quite apart from government, for all the various reasons of fellowship, philanthropy, faith and commerce.
Tradition safety measures on college campuses, i.e., segregating, quarantining, or sequestering Blacks – especially Black males – away from White students is OK again. It’s even now considered anti-racist. Indeed, the Blacks are actually demanding it and crowing over their “victory” when they get it. 😆
No. You can’t even make this shit up. I really don’t know if this is just what we allow to pass for colleges in California or a case of the Left Coast wanting to signal that they’re even #Woker than the Northeast. Either way though, USC’s Suzanne-Dworak-Peck School of Social Work wants everyone to know that use of the word “field” will no longer be tolerated.
As we enter 2023, we would like to share a change we are making at the Suzanne-Dworak-Peck School of Social Work to ensure our use of inclusive language and practice. Specifically, we have decided to remove the term ‘field’ from our curriculum and practice and replace it with ‘practicum.’ This change supports anti-racist social work practice by replacing language that could be considered anti-Black or anti-immigrant in favor of inclusive language. Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘field work’ may have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign.

So, no more “field work,” and no more going into or being out “in the field.” Not sure how they’re planning to handle their “field of study.” 😆 But then, “anti-racism” is, more often than not, anti-sensical.
USC’s Suzanne-Dworak-Peck School of Social Work’s language policing does raise a singular, glaring question in my mind though. If they’re banning “field” from use due to it possibly having certain connotations for “descendants of slavery and immigrant workers,” are they also going to ban the use of “house?” After all, the House Negro is the antithesis of the Field Negro and holds extremely bad connotations to the majority of Blacks who always seem to need the charity of social work.
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.
This is state of “justice” in today’s, anti-White, #Woke America. Four worthless, misborn Black thugs beat a White teenager to death while shouting racial slurs, and a grand jury won’t even return an indictment on murder charges for it, despite the thugs being arrested for murder and felonious assault. Nor did either the state government of Ohio or the US federal government enter hate crime charges against them.
Hell! This brutal murder wasn’t even news and never made it to the national stage… because it doesn’t fit the #SocialJustice narrative. But, you can be damn sure that, if 4 White men beat a Black teen unconscious and then kicked him in the head till he died, it be the number one headline for weeks, this grand jury lesser indictment would spark riots across our nation, and there’d be both murder and hate crime charges flying.
Of course, insofar as federal hate crime charges are concerned, this is both expected and normal. The DoJ doesn’t even cite an attack by a non-White on a White in the rather extensive official list of Hate Crime examples. In sickening point of fact, I can’t find a single instance when the DoJ has filled a hate crime charge against a Black even on the rare occasions when state prosecutors have done so.
It’s pretty damn apparent that hate crimes legislation is just like civil rights legislation. They were never meant for the betterment or protection of Whites. So, since #Woke justice is anti-White justice, Whites need to protect themselves and each other. And let none among us gainsay how we each go about doing so.
It Doesn’t matter whether it’s the KKK or any of the Woke sorts; hatred for a race of people is hatred for a race of people. The KKK and the Woke are just mirror image hate.
Of course, the internal, national and racial enemies of the American people will vociferously, stridently, and violently refute this claim of similarity to the few actual White Supremacists left in America. In their minds, only Whites can be racist, and all Whites are actively or passively racist… because they’re White.
