Um… er…

Say WHUT???

One school district in Washington state has evidently decided that Asians no longer qualify as persons of color.

In their latest equity report, administrators at North Thurston Public Schools—which oversees some 16,000 students—lumped Asians in with whites and measured their academic achievements against “students of color,” a category that includes “Black, Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander, and Multi-Racial Students” who have experienced “persistent opportunity gaps.”

Ironically, the same article talks about Prop 16, which was a leftist wet dream about ending race neutrality, and how badly it got defeated in Blue California!

In other news, our little live stream that we’ve been doing for six or so months was deplatformed by Farcebook on Monday. I guess we pissed off too many of their algorithms… Looking at other options to continue doing it. We’ll make one more try tomorrow and see what happens.

  1. Well Asian students would break the narrative if they where included in the “people of color” can’t do well in school b.s.

  2. The Book of Faces is losing many users, and deservedly so. I tried MeWe, and have been less than impressed. But there are others out there trying to gain followers, and … well, we’ll see about that, too.

  3. Thing is, it wouldn’t be crazier than the theoretical status quo, to instead use the following epicycles on top of white nationalism.

    a) white African-Americans, white Hispanics, white Native Americans, white Asians
    b) minority Caucasians.

    The ones who are not criminal, and value some but not all educations get labeled white.

    Criminals, and those who either value zero education, or who value all of the ‘educations’, are minority.

    With these epicycles, proposing a pogrom along racial lines is almost not wasteful fruitcakery. It would definitely still be wasteful fruitcakery.

    • A friend of mine was from the former country of Rhodesia. He’s as white as Donald Trump, but he can prove he’s “African-American” with official INS paperwork, which profoundly annoys a certain category of his co-workers…

      Apparently the State Department thinks everyone in Africa is black. But we’re talking mostly Ivy League bureaucrats there, who don’t seem to have a lot of connection to the Real World(tm).

      • In the sense that, say, Thomas Sowell is white.

        The scholarship that gets repeated on twitter is by scholars who have been sniffing their own rears for so long that they have an equally rigorous connection to reality as Ivy League bureaucrats.

  4. Discrimination against asians has been an ongoing thing for years in the educational community.

    Funny, though, most colleges would die if the ChiCom population went away, as that sweet foreign money pays for a lot of bullscat.

    Leftists… are the worst.

  5. Former/Recovering programmer here… funny thing about ‘algorithms’ – there’s lots and lost and lots of the things. A couple dozen might even actually work.

    • Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm, Bresenham’s DDA algorithm, QuickSort, the point-in-polygon test, etc. seem fine to me. Social media BS, OTOH…

  6. Hey Jim, Look at Newsmax.com They have gained so many of Fox’s subscribers it has moved them up to third place in their venue type ratings. Shawn Spicer has a show on it and I see that other FOX folks have contributed pieces for/to them.

  7. Don’t forget, the Fed now defines “white” and “non-Hispanic white” as official racial categories. And different branches of the Fed have their own definitions.

    A friend of mine’s parents came from Portugal. He was born in the USA and never thought of himself as anything but “American.” He was recently astonished to find out he’s supposed to be “Hispanic.” But people from Spain aren’t Hispanic, they’re “European”, and Mexicans, who are mostly genetically Indians, are “Hispanic”, unless they’re from north of the Rio Grande, in which case they’re “Native Americans”, and I am not, despite having ancestors here since before the Late Unpleasantness.
