How Whiteness Arises From Critical Race Theorists Decrying Measurement White Supremacist

The irony of calling the best parts of Western culture “white supremacist” is lost on debased race hustlers. Probably because recognizing the full logical implication of the charge requires just a bit more of the cerebral readies than they have available to them.

Our guiding peer-reviewed paper is “Can You Really Measure That? Combining Critical Race Theory and Quantitative Methods” by Jenna R. Sablan in American Educational Research Journal.

(Incidentally, since I have many new readers, I should explain I always emphasize “peer-reviewed” to show how far gone academia is.)

Jenny says, “in critical race theory (CRT) training, statistics and quantitative reasoning can be thought of as not bias-free endeavors but related to White supremacist origins” and “For the bulk of [CRT] research that takes this critical lens, the use of strong statistical analyses is not only absent but, according to some, almost entirely antithetical”.

If you will allow me a minor paragraph diversion, I’m on both sides here. Most statistical analyses are awful, relying on untested models, boasting of wee p-values, with results which are almost surely wrong or way over-certain. Jenny doesn’t know this, and indeed thinks the opposite. She wants to use statistics in the normal way, but her beloved race hustlers think quantitative methods are white supremacist.

Now science relies on measurement. Science is more than just measurement and quantitative methods, but without measurement and without quantification, there is no science. Critical race theorists really do say science, in this traditional way, is white supremacist.

The kicker is this. If you reject quantitative methods as white supremacist, then you have no way of claiming so-called race disparities. The existence of disparities are unquestionable religious dogma to critical race theorists. All non-whites by definition are victims, our most noble category of being. So if you can’t demonstrate disparities via measurement, though you are certain they are there, all that would be left to you is the raw claim that whites are evil by nature of their whiteness.

Disparities are caused by whiteness. Not whites: whiteness. Which is indeed what we increasingly hear.

Nancy Pelosi, somehow forgetting she is white (the power of gin?), said the Capitol protesters “put their whiteness over democracy.” “Ebony” Elizabeth Thomas said she was glad Pelosi “specifically named whiteness” and “not just white supremacy.”

Blue Cheka Lisa Ko, doubtless hoping to forestall the trend of identifying Asians with whites, said “Whiteness doing its work to exonerate, console, and ahistoricize whiteness, over and over again.” Never mind that this is idiocy, and instead ask how does “whiteness” do this? Quantum tunneling? Dark energy, in a kind of cosmic pun?

Another Blue Cheka, and member of the sacred race, tweeted “Part of how the politics of whiteness have operated these many centuries is that we don’t name or discuss whiteness as a distinct thing but simply treat it as the natural order of the world. The entire left-right framework exists within whiteness & Euro ordering of world politics”.

Even this simple female cannot really believe no one discusses how bad white people are. Her purpose was instead to castigate this thing called whiteness.

Even the Catholic Herald, a one-time readable mag turned rag, tells us about “Whiteness at Work“. It is “wild to see Whiteness work”. The writer goes on to worship George Floyd, and excuses the BLM and Auntyfa riots, lootings, and murders of the summer, and says whiteness caused the Capitol protest, which was somehow much worse than the worst actions.

We could on with examples for days, but you get the idea. If you haven’t, you soon will. Just switch on the “news”.

Trump voters, regardless of their race, are demeaned as possessing whiteness, and therefore they are necessarily white supremacist. So what is whiteness? At least this, from Ahmari on one of his based days:

Whiteness is magic or kind of power. It is not a people, but a thing. Non-whites can catch and display it, but it radiates off whites most strongly. Whites can suppress whiteness rays by denouncing whites and their own whiteness. But since you can’t wash the white off, it being obvious to all onlookers, who will all naturally suspect the white on you equates to to white supremacist, you have to denounce continuously, and with ever-increasing fervor.

Whiteness therefore is pure psychic energy. Which can only be extinguished using spiritual, a.k.a. psychological, weapons.

Be ready for this.

  1. This white magic must be powerful stuff.
    Yet it doesn’t seem to work for so many restaurant owners, waitresses, bussers and others that the woke have forced out of employment.
    I’m confused by the presence of so many non-whites who were at the Trump rally.
    If they were “passing” to gain “white privilege”, they were doing a poor job of it.

  2. Then there’s Kristen Clarke, Biden’s pick for DOJ Civil Rights Division views on race science:

    “One: Dr Richard King reveals that the core of the human brain is the ‘locus coeruleus,’ which is a structure that is Black, because it contains large amounts of neuro-melanin, which is essential for its operation.

    Two: Black infants sit, crawl and walk sooner than whites
    Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by melanin — that same chemical which gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities.

    Four: Some scientists have revealed that most whites [sic] are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcified or non-functioning. … This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between blacks and whites

    Five: Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.

    All white all weady.

  3. The irony of it all is that it only serves to increase racism.

    I’m obsessed with whiteness now. I buy Orbit gum because it has “white” in some of its flavor names. I drive a white car. I tell my wife I am a racist and I love whiteness. There’s a town in Texas nearby that is called White Settlement – I want to move there.

    A bit facetious, yes….but it is a completely natural reaction. Whenever I get a nanny in my face telling me what I need to do or what it is I’m doing wrong, I instinctively act to do more of that.

  4. I know everything that comes out of the US infects the world (forgive my way of putting it, I can’t find a better way). It’s especially true of the bad things, those that come, for example, from Hollywood. So, some of this BS has tainted the world (mainly, some countries that seem very prone to being deceived by the media [I’m tempted to name a few, but I rather keep my mouth shut on that: don’t want to offend sensibilities innecessarily]). But that’s the thing: THIS IS UNYIELDING BS…

    Salvador Cavani, a “football”, “fútbol”, player from Uruguay, was just punished by the British federation of football for calling a friend “mi negrito”: they said he was a racist. The Uruguayan academy of the language scolded the afoiresaid federation. It’s a real shame, for too many centuries the British have been trying to impose their “culture” on the rest of us, but that’s just too clownish… And it affects me: my mom used to call me “mi negrito”, since I’m the only black-haired of her children… In Venezuela, that’s a term of endearment… In the US, she would be in jail…

    Hey, that’s up to you, you want to be entangled in that snarl of BS, you are free, but, come on, man (as the soon to be president says)… Go to Africa and ask my negritos bellos what they think of so much BS… My gringo sobrino, nephew, blocked me on facebook (back in the day, when I was naive enough as to use that filthy excuse for an internet platform) because I told him, mimicking Jackie Chan in Rush Our, “what’s up, my nigga?”: he was very offended and embarrassaed, I told him: “you are half Venezuelan, you have come to the old country, you know stuff, my man, you are not allowed to throw this tantrum”. The kid was just graduating from a US-BS university, his brain was just fried, COMPLETELY… I mean, this is too much.

    You have to do like Tarantino: “I don’t accept your categories”, reject every race talk, relentless, reject all forms of materialism… You should do good and read more of E. MIchael Jones: race is not a category of reality, it’s a logical creation, is BS… at least on this respect he is spot on. “Whites and Asians have better results in SAT exams, those are superior races”: BS!!!!!!!!!!! Asians have 11% out of wedlock offspring; whites, 18%; latinos, 45; blaks, more than 70%. “Isn’t that ratially motivated?”. Answer: “there is a limit for the foolishness, my little grasshopper”. It is a function of cultural integration; and that is a historical issue… Drop the BS, now!!!, it’s the only chance… I’m all for the good ones there…

  5. It is instructive to note the susceptibility of otherwise intelligent people for poisonous rubbish like this. The Liberal ideal of free speech, as fundament principle, does not produce virtue, but rather the perfect soil for vice to proliferate and strangle it. “Equality” necessarily produces endless strife. The Liberal Ideal is now descending into its inevitable end as dystopian, totalitarian nightmare.

  6. White supremacy is nothing but a way to bait one group against another and NOT AT ALL based on skin color. It is an acknowledgement that some people succeed, some fail and we can’t possibly invoke personal responsibility. It is the GODS OF THE OLIGARCHS imprisionment method and the stupid who follow it are obviously the non-supreme individuals, aka complete losers. They want to be imprisoned for life in hell on earth as long as they can blame others, and that’s what they are now getting. Celebrate, non-supreme people, you GOT YOUR WISH. Hell has arrived. Thank you for illustrating just how stupid human beings really are.

  7. “…It is instructive to note the susceptibility of otherwise intelligent people for poisonous rubbish like this. ..”

    This is NOT a case of ‘susceptibility’ to some poisonous concept. We are not talking about a mass conversion to illogicality here. We are talking about something quite different, something with much greater power than logic. We are talking about the tendency of human society to collectively seize on an idea and rush madly over the cliff with it – as documented in Mackay’s excellent “Extrordinary PopularDelusions and the Madness of Crowds”.

    These ‘intelligent’ people do not ‘believe’ in this madness. They accept it. They obey and enforce all its strictures. They will not hear a word said against it. If they do not, they will lose their jobs, their house, their family and become non-persons. Salvador Cavani, mentioned above, would cease to be a footballer, and no one would hear from him again.

    It will be instructive to see how the world comes out of this idiocy, though I suspect that I shall not live to see that day….

  8. Anti-white racism is the only racism still allowed by the bien pensant (and often it is white self-hatred purveyed by leftists against their own people and cultural heritage). Trump made a good start in fighting CRT, but too little too late, just as he was years too late trying to do anything about Section 230 and social media cancel culture at the hand of Big Tech’s ever-increasing monopolistic practices and collusion.

    If “whiteness” caused the Capitol “riots’, then did “blackness” not cause BLM/Antifa riots? And why is “whiteness” intrinsically bad, something to be denigrated and excoriated (despite the manifest achievements of white culture and civilization as compared to black culture and civilization), and “blackness” apparently intrinsically good?
    But basically anything the left doesn’t like these days is just instantly denigrated as “white supremacists” or “whiteness” regardless of context or facts.

    As DAV points out, Biden’s nominee to head the “Civil Rights Division” of the DOJ is a full-on black supremacist kook, but that’s ok with the left (If you substitute “white” for everything in her list of beliefs that reads “black” and a white person holding those beliefs were nominated to high office, can you imagine the fallout?…well, no, because the nomination would never have happened in the first place, and that person would have been “cancelled” long ago from polite society and high profile job opportunities).

    I particularly love item 4 on Clarke’s list of core beliefs, which if true ironically would prove the exact opposite of what she seems to think! “Some scientists have revealed that most whites are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcified or non-functioning. … This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between blacks and whites.” If so, then given the obviously enormous disparity in in cultural and historic achievement between blacks and whites (where is the black Chartres Cathedral, who is the black Dante or Shakespeare, the black Magellan or Vasco da Gama, the black Michelangelo or Raphael, the black Bach, Beethoven, or Mozart?…to name but a few instances with no black or African equal remotely comparable), if the “chemical basis” for such differences is “pineal calcification” and reduced or non-existent melanin production (I have no idea if this is a legitimate thing, and don’t care, but let’s humor her), then shouldn’t the conclusion be that far from being a bad thing or something that favors blacks, “pineal calcification” and reduced melanin are in fact necessary to, or key predictors of, high cultural achievement?

  9. It is just amazing to the point of being impressive, if only in a “You idiots are definitely asking for trouble that you’re entirely unprepared for.” kind of way to see the historical trend of this nonsense from the 60’s until now.

    Part of the obsession with lying about race by these animals is that they are amoral. So they have to run to this perverse sort of unequal “egalitarianism” to pursue “justice”

    Regardless of the actual fact of racial, gender, IQ, or any other metric’s effect on outcomes, all moral people need is the be told to be kind to each other. That even if purple people are disproportionately violent idiots, you still do not have a right to initiate harm. And you are obligated to be a good neighbor when you see them bleeding on the side of the road.

    But people without a moral compass gave to resort instead to forced associations which are propped up by by lies about any differences in order to get the outcomes they decide is correct…..which of course, suit their own personal gain…..every….single….time.

  10. @Dennis,

    What is that woman smoking? Where did she get her information? Did she go to an old school human biology and human biochemistry class? Did she ever look at microscopic sections? Has she ever had children and observed their growth and development and thought about what that means in various parts of the environment on this lump of dirt? /rhetorical

    Barring differences in melanin types and/or other developmental anomalies/malfunctions, everyone makes the same amount of melanin. The differences is skin color is depth of penetration, not amount. “White” skin has all of the melanin adjacent to the basement membrane. “Black” skin has it throughout all of the skin thickness. Shades between those have varying depths of the skin thickness containing melanin.

    There is only one race: human! That there are subtypes or strains that are more or less isolated or more or less intercrossed means little. God, having made all this possible, therefore is no respecter of distinctions without a difference such as skin color.

  11. cdquarles: I believe she got her information from that noted scientist Yakub, who created whites in a lab experiment gone awry some 6600 years ago. More or less the story peddled by Elijah Muhammad, Farrakhan, and the NOI. I believe Yakub’s lab was located in the ancient paradise of Wakanda, which was later destroyed and turned into a wasteland, its noble and genius people enslaved, when the evil white lab creatures revolted against their own creators and expropriated the Wakandans’ great scientific and cultural achievements as their own. Or something like that.

  12. Our brilliant black supremacist confused melanin with melatonin, the latter of which is in fact produced by pineal gland.

  13. Marisa: Hilarious. I wasn’t even sure what the pineal gland does off the top of my head, though her “calcification” theory sounded nutty whatever it does. Just too funny she couldn’t even distinguish melanin from melatonin!

    If her job requires Senate confirmation, I do hope some enterprising Senator offer us some comic relief by grilling her on these theories (but given the state of the GOP, I rather expect they’ll just kowtow, engage in pleasant banalities, and helps the Dems rubber-stamp everyone at this point).

  14. My first social experiences as a toddler where as a child of migrants from middle Europe.
    Being the only one in the street I copped it. Then going to a parish Catholic School where there was more variety, my best friend was a local. Going to a big Catholic school where I was on my own again until the later and early secondary school, once again the locals were the ones who treated me best.
    As I got older more people accepted me and made an effort.
    What I find interesting is that those that dished out calling people wog, dago, coon etc are now the one sprouting this nonsense.
    Further I find the people who sprout this garbage seem to come from homes on above average incomes, with a pool, annual resort holiday, latest clothing fashion and car. Now these “people” are “adults” and have to make a living. Since they have always had their parents pump their ego’s up they have developed vitriolic mouths. Cant do electronics, plumbing, carpentry, lawn mowing etc, just verbal slagging off. To avoid the challenge of life they waste their time at “university” completing a useless arts degree. Job time is pushed back to study teaching. As these people are useless they get jobs in that repository known as government – public service.
    Here they sprout clap trap with other like “minded people”.
    Now they talk about the oppressive capitalist system. Never mind their salaries and benefits exceed those of the private sector.

  15. Dodgy Geezer,

    Not only are many intelligent people unwilling to speak up against this madness (even though they don’t believe in it), many are unable.

    A couple of years ago my institution had a survey distributed about the “racial climate.” It was a ridiculous hack job of a survey. Questions like “Are you non-white and have experienced racial discrimination?” (with no corresponding question for whites) or “How has white supremacy affected you?” with answers like “1.) I have directly suffered from it 2.) I have not suffered from it directly though others have” and no other possible responses. It was literally impossible for the survey to come up with any result other than the respondents “suffering from white supremacy.” But of course none of the questions were listed when the “grim” results were discussed afterwards.

  16. Multiple peer reviewed studies, with wee P values, confirms that if your butt size is 50 times bigger than your brain, nothing good proceeds.

  17. Sheri said: “Thank you for illustrating just how stupid human beings really are.”
    How true, but dangerous.
    ‘Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented by use of force. Evil always carries within itself the germ of its own subversion in that it leaves behind in human beings at least a sense of unease. Against stupidity we are defenceless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed- in such moments the stupid person even becomes critical – and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental. In all this the stupid person, in contrast to the malicious one, is utterly self-satisfied and, being easily irritated, becomes dangerous by going on the attack. For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.
    ‘If we want to know how to get the better of stupidity, we must seek to understand its nature. This much is certain, that it is in essence not an intellectual defect but a human one. There are human beings who are of remarkably agile intellect yet stupid, and others who are intellectually quite dull yet anything but stupid. We discover this to our surprise in particular situations. The impression one gains is not so much that stupidity is a congenital defect, but that, under certain circumstances, people are made stupid or that they allow this to happen to them. We note further that people who have isolated themselves from others or who lives in solitude manifest this defect less frequently than individuals or groups of people inclined or condemned to sociability. And so it would seem that stupidity is perhaps less a psychological than a sociological problem. It is a particular form of the impact of historical circumstances on human beings, a psychological concomitant of certain external conditions. Upon closer observation, it becomes apparent that every strong upsurge of power in the public sphere, be it of a political or of a religious nature, infects a large part of humankind with stupidity. It would even seem that this is virtually a sociological-psychological law. The power of the one needs the stupidity of the other. The process at work here is not that particular human capacities, for instance, the intellect, suddenly atrophy or fail. Instead, it seems that under the overwhelming impact of rising power, humans are deprived of their inner independence, and, more or less consciously, give up establishing an autonomous position toward the emerging circumstances. The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, one virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with a person, but with slogans, catchwords and the like that have taken possession of him. He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil. This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human beings.
    ‘Yet at this very point it becomes quite clear that only an act of liberation, not instruction, can overcome stupidity. Here we must come to terms with the fact that in most cases a genuine internal liberation becomes possible only when external liberation has preceded it. Until then we must abandon all attempts to convince the stupid person. This state of affairs explains why in such circumstances our attempts to know what ‘the people’ really think are in vain and why, under these circumstances, this question is so irrelevant for the person who is thinking and acting responsibly. The word of the Bible that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom declares that the internal liberation of human beings to live the responsible life before God is the only genuine way to overcome stupidity.”

  18. We are in a race war. To dance around that obvious point is to deny reality. Sorry, but it’s true, although I wish it were otherwise. And remember, in every war there are traitors, who act contrary to what would be presumed to be their natural affinities, out of perverse motivations. Sometimes money, sometimes fear, often less obvious factors related to nature or nurture. In addition to outright traitors, there are more often the enablers, who quietly go along with the opposition to avoid conflict–those whom Churchill described as hoping the alligator will eat them last. And, of course, there are always the idealists-those who cling to now out-dated principles like “equality before the law,” “the Constitution,” and “quality of character, not color of skin.” What such people forget is that the former slave never wants mere equality; he wants to become the new master.

  19. Ivory tower peer-reviewed CRT:
    So beyond the pale that it turns a face, at first just ghostly, to a whiter shade of pale.
