While I agree with the overall thrust of your argument, the Bloomberg article you lead with is really misleading, at least according to the Daily Wire.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/bloomberg-flubs-data-for-bombshell-report-that-only-6-of-new-corporate-hires-are-white

He argues that Bloomberg reporters flubbed the math; I didn’t double check, but it looked plausible.

Good catch. Indeed, that does look plausible, and it would not be at all surprising if the reporters screwed up the math.

Then again, it wouldn't be surprising if corporate America was, in fact, discriminating at this level.

Truth is somewhere in the middle here. It's true that my profession mostly hires Asians, but whites (men and women) can also still find jobs. Here's the thing, though: I'm in a mathematics-intensive discipline, and taught (as tenured faculty) for some years before moving to industry. Asians are good at, and (more importantly), *interested* in mathematics-intensive subjects. Whites, as a rule, seem not to be. It is my observation as a curmudgeonly Gen-Xer that whites have become intellectually soft (obviously this is a statistical statement not a statement about individuals). So there's a karmic aspect to this. I love Western heritage and mourn the substantial loss, but honestly some of the causes are our own deficits and degeneration of character.

You're absolutely not wrong about this. Intellectual standards have absolutely cratered among whites.

Expand full comment

Yes, and I am quite aware that many of the causes are external. Our culture has systematically degenerated since at least the 1960s if not earlier. While the process has been somewhat iterative, I am 100% certain that there have been vested interests that have guided it.

This is absolutely the case. Degradation of the education system, poisoning of the food supply, the spread of drugs, and the promulgation of the "smart nerds aren't cool" meme have all played their part, and absolutely none of it has been organic.

I have a theory about this decline in mental capacity in general. Mental capacity, or intelligence, is highly dependent on nutrition, especially in the first two years of life. Have you ever looked at what's in baby formula? I promise you that the wealthy elites are not feeding their children that crap. The brain is primarily saturated fat and cholesterol, and for some reason the "health authorities" want us to reduce saturated fat and cholesterol (mostly with a pill). I read somewhere that 30% of the population has detectible levels of glyphosates in their blood. Only the wealthy can afford to consistently eat food that isn't grown with toxic chemicals, unless you grow your own. I could go on about this topic for days, but the bottom line is, our general food supply has been ruined by genetic engineering and chemicals and the population has been brainwashed into believing that rabbit food is healthy for a primate with a big brain that was probably developed because of the eating of fatty meat.

As for the difference you see between different cultures (this has nothing to do with melanin in the skin in my opinion) I would wager that Asians and people of Asian descent typically eat completely differently than your average white person or your average black person. This is a cultural thing. It's a cultural thing between socio-economic classes too.

Weak people, mentally and physically, are easier to control. A sickly man cares nothing for liberty or anything else really. Follow the money...

Not all Asians. There's been a definite tendency in recent years for Americanized Asians to get fat. There's no question that adulteration of the food supply is having a deleterious effect, and I doubt this is unintentional.

Yes. Everything is a rich man’s trick. It’s all a class war. And that’s where this piece is frustrating, because it seems the author chose racist memes that will garner predictable responses. In fact I think one of these is profoundly wrong: the photograph suggesting the current state of the unhired whites actually makes them indistinguishable from your Sambo - err, “Tyrone” toon above. The picture you want is, seemingly a lot closer to a look in the mirror. These white males you speak of are found in mom’s basement, pale and not mating but gaming with their ilk, or 4channing hate, or, you know, plotting violence (something men, not women, excel at). So there’s that.

...

Imagine a place where, 400 years ago, someone started adding a drop of rosewater to the murky water they drank, and this was quickly adopted as custom, and rosewater was added in increasing amounts to the public supply. Let’s say that 100 years ago, some folk started objecting, and began adding lemon juice to their own water. And then fifty years ago after much struggle, they took over the water supply and added lemon to the now fully rosewatered public water. They can’t eliminate the rosewater because most folk are used to it, but now instead of the pure clean water available to the very wealthy few, everybody else is getting rosewater with lemon. No one is happy but the rich. The lemon makes the rosewater only somewhat less unpleasant to those who don’t like it, but it spoils the rosewater of those who do.

It’s not the best analogy, but the point is, one way or another the inequities of the past intrude on today. Now, just as the indentured European would-be settlers found themselves in the same lot as enslaved Africans and were sold a bill of goods about race to fool them into thinking they weren’t at the bottom...they’re back at the bottom. And who is still on top? The MAN with the munny.

You confuse inequity with class-based law, ditto privilege and the corresponding social structure; inequity can only be discovered or exist when one starts out from an assumed position of theoretical equality (itself a logical impossibility because it requires all humans to be equal, meaning identical, in ability et c).

The pre-Leninist socialists were not cocerned with equity but with practical matters. That's a much more profitable (if you'll excuse the word) course of both analysis and action, and don't forget they also were pragmatists: reality first, theory second. Lenin and his bourgeois clique turned it topside-down, with well-known results. In post-war Germany, the Nordic nations and some other places theory took a back seat to reality and thus those nations had what is probably the closest working model of socialism, when compared totheory because they stuck to real things and because the nations were racially homogeous and based on lutheran and culture-bound morals and social structures (and strictures).

140 is high on the Cattell B scale, but not so much, about 4% quantile of UK population. To enter Mensa, say, you would need 148.

On the CFIT (culture fair) scale instead the threshold for Mensa is 132, so 140 is unrealistically high.

This from Heather Mac Donald's 'The Diversity Delusion' forensic investigation of the effect DEI is having on STEM: "A study by the American Association for the Advancement of Science found “systemic anti-LGBTQ bias within STEM industry and academia.” The notorious James Damore Google discrimination lawsuit revealed an instance where an employee was reprimanded for pointing out that white males are actually underrepresented at Google: “’Being absolutely correct is inappropriate’ when it comes to ‘discussions of race and justice’” he was told. Meanwhile, “driven by unapologetic meritocracy, China is catching up to the United States in science and technology.

It’s cultural. When I taught English in Russia and Ukraine, it seemed like about 60% of my teenage students were focusing on physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, and other “hard” subjects.

We have emphasized credentials over actual skills in the U.S. That’s why so many white kids end up choosing easier degrees.

Given how corporate and government jobs seem to be favoring DEI candidates who also chose worthless degrees, maybe it’s time to encourage white boys to challenge themselves and study something useful

We had to pay for extra curricular maths tutoring for our son at our local public high school. The school had a token male teacher ratio, with female headmistress and female maths ‘teachers’ & ‘subs’ blatantly discriminating against him and other boys in his class with their callous indifference and thinly veiled contempt. These women sabotaged his being moved up into the advanced high school maths classes. He has only just started to speak about it now, four years later. Now in the sciences at university, having won two scholarships & working for 3 years after high school, he has sworn that should he ever have a son, he will be sent to an all boys school.

Best of luck on the job search. The struggle you describe is the reason I'm still hanging onto my job that I'm laughably overqualified for. Of my "black and brown" coworkers, some are solidly competent (and these would thrive without any DEI mandates whatsoever), but many are not at all competent. A few, I hate to say, are not far from the meme shared in John's post about Tyrone the diversity hire. I wish I was joking, but I am not. Since I started working there, standards have been steadily relaxed -- management absolutely, positively will not call a spade a spade and weed out the people who simply lack the cognitive ability to become competent at their jobs; those who are competent get frustrated and then demoralized (including those top-performers who are "black and brown"); and the dysfunction just builds and builds. The whole thing is a microcosm of our civilization: primed to collapse as those with the talents to keep it running are pushed aside.

Like you said, the resolution isn't going to be pretty. "For every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction" isn't true only of physics; it's true of social movements as well. Folks who are happy to push things to the limit now because it seems to benefit them will suffer when the backlash comes. Unfortunately, for many of them, their brains do not work well enough to be able to connect the cause-and-effect when it comes; they will not see that they brought this backlash on themselves.

Very sorry to hear that. Working your contacts and small companies is the way to go. Big companies and government have built in policies against hiring you.

A while ago I applied to a Canadian Federal Government job posting. It is a senior technical role I'm well qualified for, and excellent fit for my skills and experience.

A few months later I received an email that I was being removed further consideration for the position as I _"have not self-identified as a member of an [EE group](https://www.canada.ca/en/government/publicservice/wellness-inclusion-diversity-public-service/diversity-inclusion-public-service/employment-equity-annual-reports/employment-equity-public-service-canada-2017-2018.html)"_. Employment equity (EE) groups are "women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities". Colour in the Venn diagram and I'm being excluded for being a white male.

This, it turns out, is consistent with [government policy](https://www.canada.ca/en/public-service-commission/services/appointment-framework/archives/employment-equity.html).

For shits and giggles I decided to submit an Access To Information request on the hiring process, the Canadian equivalent of an FOI, to determine why. After $5 and a few months, I got my answer:

There were too many applicants who fulfilled threshold requirements and the simplest way to reduce the effort required downstream in the hiring process was to exclude non EE canadidates as a _"volume management strategy"_., an HR term of art for ways to throw away most of the CVs. Not even fuck the white guy, they're just lazy and the white guy is the only one they can legally fuck. It's encouraged.

Unfortunately our system has no checks and balances. Our PM has a near tyranny available to him legally. We don’t have a charter of rights. We do, but the first paragraph says these rights outlined can be overridden by any government in the interests of good governance. Free Speech? Nope. Free Speech only if the government feels it won’t disrupt anything. Good governance/stable society etc. Canada was guided by English Common Law. We always had that, even without a formal declaration of rights. But our charter of rights declares it takes precedence over English Common Law. When this was enshrined by Pierre Trudeau a very small number of us were horrified. I said at the time Canada would be fine until such time as we elected a tyrant. And then, we would be done. It took forty years.

She runs off, talks to manager about 30’ away. They both look worried. He comes over ‘Of course we will. But please stay six feet away from anyone.’ I wandered around looking at furniture styles. Not a chance I would buy anything there. But it had modern edgy furniture, which I was looking for. The funny thing is the manager followed me around the whole time I was there ensuring I stayed 6’ apart.

That would only work if you were woke. These shiboleths exist to weed out the faithful from the unfaithful. They don't hate you because you are white, they hate you because you are unclean and not pure in the True Faith.

Pure, True Faith whites males who wear hairshirts and self flagellate for holiness are the holiest of the holy. Especially when they take gay communion and hand over their sons and daughters to be mutilated for holiness.

You are in a holy war, not a race war.

"They don't hate you because you are white, they hate you because you are unclean and not pure in the True Faith."

Unfortunately it is both at the same time, in a constantly accelerating cycle. The doctrine of the true faith in the second holds as one of its articles the first. On a metaphysical level to be a true and non-groveling member of that group, and to be a blaspheming heretic, are metaphysically the same.

The beautiful are hated by the ugly both because they are beautiful, and because they are not ugly.

Anonymousconservative.com took r/K selection theory and applied it to politics.

Basically you have two types of survival strategies. One based on resource abundance (rabbits) and the other on resource scarcity (wolves)

Wolvrs cant fuck around. If a pack gets a kill and another challenges they have to fight bc they dont know if thry are ever going to find more food. The pack is only as strong as its weakest member, so they strive for excellence. They mate for life and they even prevent mating when resources are too low. Thats “K”. So you can imagine how this applies politically.

The “r” type strategists are in resouce abundance. Food is plentiful, westher is warm, etc. if a ravbit is challengrd over a carrot, it will just hope away bc a fight could injure it and there is easily another carrot. They have sex with everything (seriously, theyll hump a dead rabbit), bc resources are abundant it low invests in rearing young, instead it tries a shotgun approach to mating.

Where it grts really interesting is that your r strategist doesnt like it when another member develops tough characteristics. It is actually safer when everyone is pathetic bc a predator will only take out one member. And if you have a thoisand members who are app equally pathetic then its odds of survival are 999/1000. But if one of the other members develop tough characteristics, its odd go DOWN.

Anyway, bottom line is that shitbags prefer to undermine the higher quality competitors bc that way they can use the shotgun approach to mating, which is ideal for them when the environment has high resources and they are of the priest class. That is, the class of people whose job it is to transmit the social traditions on what is proper behavior.

At that point we get into “Jimian theory” of what Jim of blog.jim.com called “leftist singularity”. This is when a civilizations military is dominant, meaning their priests are dominant over all competing priesthoods. At thst point the priests suddenly start discovering that their ancient laws and traditions demand that people start giving them free shit. Ie “do not covet” becomes “you didnt build that by yourself”, “do not commit adultery” becomes “let your wife and daughter find themselves by having sex with many priests in the temples and monasteries”.

Priests here refering to university professors and students. As academia is the modern priesthood.

So holiness becomes discovering new forms of bullshit to convince people to give the Church their stuff.

The singularity occurs when priests start competing with one anotjer to be “more holy” ie to come up with new bullshit. Specifically bullshit that makes everyone else profane at which point it is the duty of the holy to take their stuff and kill them.

You can see an example of this with the Khmer Rouge where the eventually ended up killing anyone that so mich as had eyeglasses.

According to Jimian theory, once a singularity goes into full swing it stops in only two situations.

1) a strongman of the faith, such as Stalin or Cromwell steps up and executes anyone that tries to be more holy than the strongman.

2) it burns itself out by literally killing everyone. Ie Cambodia

Leaving the US is the best option (or the UK, Canada, wherever you are), for Arab/Muslim nations or perhaps S. America. The other option is to legally change your surname or your middle name (or add one) to a Spanish name, and if required to justify, state it is your maternal line. Once established, you are Hispanic and no, you don't have to speak Spanish to be Hispanic in the US.

The crazy thing is, the juxtaposition of the open and obvious discrimination against straight white men with the endless lecturing about how privileged we supppsedly are.

If you look at earnings, the average white family earns the average amount per year. Very logical. The largest group average is going to be close to the average. It has to be if the largest group is big enough. African Americans are quite far down the list. Well below average. Because of racism. But….black African immigrants are quite high up the list. Well above whites. And they are very black usually. Much darker than your typical mocha Afrjcan American. South Asian Indians are top or second. Chinese Asians, Jews, are near the top. Nigerians are well up there. Colour of skin is obviously not a factor.

Your timing is impeccable, John.

I was recently referred to a position very similar to the one I currently occupy at a SaaS company (where I feel I barely squeaked in before the aftermath of Saint Floyd's Summer took full effect) by an Indian-Canadian colleague who used to work with me here.

The company is a similar size, in the same industry, and the role would have been a perfect fit for my skills.

Having talked to some former coworkers who left my current employer, I already knew I was underpaid but not how woefully: according to the recruiter for this position, the salary range was literally double my current pay and the health insurance premiums for my entire family would have been covered.

Alas, despite being given a chance by the white, 20-something female HR recruiter (who likely just has an incentive to pass along anyone who appears competent), I didn't even get to speak with the white woman in the Bay Area who would have been my manager because they "decided to go with a late-stage candidate."

I noticed basically the same role was open on a different team, so I asked the recruiter about it and had my friend push my resume for that one, too.

This one actually got me an interview with the woman who'd have been my manager-- again, a white woman, this time an overweight, late 30s woman who studied Women's Studies and Social Work, spending half her professional career fundraising for the Social Democrat party in Canada before somehow transitioning into a SaaS technical role.

I was wary of reporting to such a person, but given the potential pay raise, I was willing to try to play nice with almost anyone.

We actually had a great 30-minute conversation where I felt I developed good rapport with her and demonstrated my abilities as a near-perfect match for the role, especially given my own personal experience as not just an employee in the space but an end user of software products in the e-com niche as an entrepreneur myself.

Go figure, I got the exact same email, word for word, from the recruiter about them wanting to go with another "late stage candidate."

Now, the positions are gone from their site, so it's possible they really did have two other candidates and I just missed it by the skin of my teeth, though I had to wonder whether I was competing against other straight, white, married males with dependents or more single cat ladies who vote for progressives.

This was a year after Amazon put me through a 2-month, 8-interview wringer (including making me talk to the same person twice), where I had great rapport with the guys who'd have been on my team, my immediate supervisor and his boss, and the subject matter experts who assessed me. I am almost certain I was shot down by the very last interviewer (the secret "bar raiser" who holds veto power over the entire chain of interviewers), who was a white woman my own age, the only one with pronouns in her signature, and who was training another woman to conduct the interview at the end of a 5-hour day where my brain was already fried.

Although I didn't get that job, I think I dodged a bullet since most of the tech companies did massive layoffs last fall, including my own, though I managed to be enough of a generalist with enough history here I wasn't redundant enough to axe.

In both cases, I received no feedback about why I wasn't selected, but it's one thing when you interview for a job where you figure out you're probably in over your head or the fit isn't that great or you make a poor showing of your skills in the interview and quite another where it feels like a position fits like a glove and would come with a sizeable raise and career advancement.

I haven't exactly been pounding the digital pavement, but if I can't even get a job when I have a referral, it feels pointless. And to be honest, I sort of gave up on the corporate world a while ago and have no desire to try to climb the ladder, especially seeing the writing on the wall for guys like me.

Which is why I've been buckling down continuing to build my own personal brand and consulting services. Would rather be done with all the woke HR departments and keeping my head down just to get a paycheck anyway.

As the leftist holiness spiral moves into the singularity stage, the requirements for acceptable holiness become more extreme.

"Leftist Singularity" aka "Holiness Spiral", are terms created by the blogger Jim from blog.jim.com. His theory is that when a nations military has dominated all competing groups, the result is that countries priesthood becomes the dominant force.

When a priesthood is in a dominant position, it then becomes in their interest to find new and novel interpretations of scripture that show how God's will was actually to give the priests more free shit at the expense of the populace. For example, "do not steal" becomes "you did not build this yourself therefore you are stealing by not giving your fair share". or "do not commit adultery" becomes "do not keep your wife from finding herself via sex with random men, preferably priests".

At this point, it becomes in the interest of every priest to "out holy" every other priest. Since more holiness means more goods for the priesthood. In the name of God of course. However, this also means that the priests are now in competition with each other, and that means that being "less holy" or even worse "unholy" allows the priests to kill heretic unholy priests whose crime is not being up on the latest agreed consensus as to what exactly is holy.

This incidentally explains why so many women at womens marches simply cannot explain what a woman is. They are there for holiness, not rights. Since it was decided by the priesthood (the universities) that womens rights are holiness, they march for womens rights, in order to be holy. They want to be holy because women depend on others for resources.

A woman can be honorable and genuinely holy and give herself in perpetuity to a man who will take care of her.

Or she can giver herself out to the lying faggots in the priesthood who will find great excuses for the thug class to steal shit from the producers. In return the lying faggots in the priesthood will pimp her out as a temple whore to the military and merchant class youths or even the older members of those classes.

So right now the priesthood has become so holy, that they declared that having a uterus is no longer a necessary requirement of being a women. Because holiness. As a result the temple whores are in a bind, it's obvious that a uterus is in fact a requirement of being a woman but if they say so they will be unholy and cast out by the lying faggots in the priesthood to die in the wilderness. Tough position.

You also had to exhibit “the ability to effectively work on diverse teams or with a variety of populations, including those underrepresented at our organization and those of BIPOC communities.” I mean you had to be on the rainbow spectrum to lead a national forest crew—it was the bare minimum requirement.
