Diversity? . . . It’s The End of the West

As a condition for being merely considered for a faculty position, Ohio State University requires that applicants avow their support for diversity and politically correct policies and that they provide proof that they had actively supported such things in the past.

My former colleagues don’t see any problem with this requirement.

When I applied to become a New York City fireman in 1962, there was a very rigorous physical, including having to press seventy five pounds with one arm and fifty pounds with the other, to get a perfect score (one’s performance was given a mark and was averaged with the written test). The written exam was composed of arithmetic, science and civics. To make a long story short, the physical has been entirely degraded in order to recruit more women and these days it is not graded, one needs of only do the minimum to qualify. The old written exam was declared non-job related (and racist by implication since it seemed to bar so many blacks from qualifying) and these days it is a sort of psychological test that one would have to be a complete moron not to know what answer is being prompted. Finally, last year a black recruit who failed the probationary firefighter training period three times was given a fourth chance.


A few years back the Washington Times had a great article about the culture within WMATA that has caused its collapse. Here’s just the beginning of that excellent article.

Ninety-seven percent of the bus and train operators at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are black, with only six white women out of more than 3,000 drivers, according to Metro documents — a lack of diversity at one of the region’s largest employers that has led to an acknowledgment of failure in affirmative-action documents and spawned a series of lawsuits.

The homogeneity, interviews with dozens of current and former Metro workers indicated, is a proxy to a clubby culture of favoritism in which merit has little to do with promotions, and accountability, such as noting safety violations, is a career death knell. In typical examples, court and Metro records show, a black man who spent eight years in prison for dealing PCP was promoted to a high-level management position soon after his release, and whites in the same positions as blacks with far less seniority are inexplicably paid less.

With Metro’s budget chronically strained and reports of mismanagement coming more regularly than trains, interviews and internal records depict a likely root: an environment in which hardworking employees are actively excluded and those who rise are those willing to do the bare minimum — never causing a stir by flagging rampant safety violations, reporting malfeasance or proposing improvements.

“When the accident happened in 2009, I called a supervisor and said, ‘Is this the one we all dreaded?’ The way workers do their jobs, we all knew it was a matter of time. … The inept get promoted, and the capable get buried. Smart people were put in the corner, ostracized and given nothing to do,” said Christine Townsend, who sued Metro for discrimination and won.

It is a culture in which a white male engineer near completion of a Ph.D. was passed over for a management position in favor of a black man who was barely literate, multiple staffers said.

“The average rider wouldn’t believe the things that go on. There are so many easy things we could do to make the system better,” a station manager said. “But they’d never put me in charge because they know I’d make sure others actually did their jobs. They don’t want change. It’s go along to get along.”

Metro is a quasi-public agency that receives funding from the federal government, Maryland, Virginia and local jurisdictions to operate a regional bus and rail transportation system in the national capital area, but is not beholden to rules that apply to fully governmental entities. With a $2.5 billion operating and capital budget for fiscal 2012, Metrorail serves 86 stations and has 106 miles of track, while Metrobus serves the nation’s capital with 1,500 buses.

Metro’s affirmative-action plan notes that the 1.4 percent of its bus and train operators who are Hispanic and the 25 percent who are female of any race are “less than reasonably expected.” It does not make note of the 1.5 percent who are white.

Even in entry-level occupations typically dominated by Hispanics, there are virtually none at Metro. Only one laborer out of 67 is Hispanic; of 540 landscapers, carpenters and cleaners, only 22 are Hispanic. In the national capital region, Hispanics make up 13 percent of adults and blacks comprise 25 percent; white women constitute 29 percent.

“The odds of such a disparity occurring by chance are statistically infinitesimal,” Ronald A. Schmidt, a lawyer representing 12 white women exploring a class-action lawsuit, wrote in a 2003 letter. “There appears to be an entrenched network of African-American employees at WMATA that is able to steer jobs, promotion, training and other career enhancing benefit to persons of their own racial or ethnic group.”

The average Metro worker had a $60,000 salary, which rises to $69,000 including overtime. That is more than 71 percent of area residents who had an income in 2010, including 62 percent of whites, census records show.

White and Hispanic employees who allege discrimination have found a deaf ear at Metro’s civil rights office, whose 17 employees are black. Until at least 1999, that office tracked complaints via a handwritten ledger on a series of taped-together sheets of paper, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times. The system “made determining statistics impossible,” said a civil rights employee from the time.

In recent months, such antiquated record keeping has allowed employees to steal thousands of dollars that electronic systems easily could have detected — and in more than one case, a culture of complicity has kept prosecutors from trying those who were caught because they feared no clean witness or proper records could be found.

“There’s a strong sense of nepotism, and it is the culture of Metro,” the civil rights employee said. “It was more of a buddy system than it was merit-based.”

Metro did not respond to requests for information about workforce demographics.

My understanding is that the NYC transit union is a militant Caribbean affair. In DC, 97% of the bus and train operators are blacks and marginal black engineers are promoted over whites with PhDs. This has resulted in a predictable outcome. The deteroration of Metro.


This reminds me of something similar I experienced in Houston. At the time I employed programmers for contract work. I was contacted by a Nigerian who offered to broker two million dollars in City of Houston contracts to upgrade its computer systems. Altho I had an established and experienced organization, I could not apply to obtain such contracts myself due to the racial preference system. The Nigerian had no organization, no employees, no experience, and no citizenship. But he had a PhD in computer science, which he told me he had obtained online “for life experience” in exchange for $1500. This qualified him, a recent immigrant, to go to the top of the list of MBE applicants and be awarded exclusive rights to these city contracts. The subcontract deal he proposed was no surprise: my programmers would do all the work at minimum wage while he would collect all the payments from Houston at full professional rates while he himself contributed nothing.

I think this situation, which springs from the MBE scam (thank you SCOTUS for creating the scam) coupled with the Tammany Hall like strangle-hold that race-conscious blacks maintain over Houston’s city government, pretty well matches the increasing number of businesses in Houston that I see hiring Pakistanis, Mexicans, Indians, Blacks, etc., in short anyone with melanin and preferably a recent immigrant–but never whites. The people in these businesses, including some multinationals, in defense of this discriminatory employment policy against whites, reply “diversity”. This too I’ve been told personally.


Likewise, an illiterate illegal can cross over, from a Latin American country that has ZERO connection to the culture or history of the United States–never suffered ANYTHING, and he or she is automatically given preference once “in the system” (including college entrances). That’s what the democrats are selling to white women. And white women are totally ok with that.

That’s totally cool with blacks, I get that–they don’t care and aren’t thinking about the future (or seeing it). But white women(?), they sit back and vote for this and agree with this. Their own kids will take a backseat in everything from hiring preferences, to college, to other federal, local and state benefits.


Indians are not here to “save” America or even our tech industry. They are parasites here to turn the US into another shithole like India. If Indians were that smart, why is India such a shithole, did you ever think about that? Per the WSJ there are already at least 500,000 Indians in the US illegally. Search for “Microsoft tech support” on Google and call those mysterious 1-877-xxx-xxxx numbers all over Google search, 9 out of 10 are fecking Indian scammers pretending to be Microsoft tech support trying to download crap on to your machine to scam you. The more Indians we import, the quicker we’ll turn into another India. Go see for yourself what a shithole India is, then come back and tell us it’s a good idea to import more of these shit parasites to the US. “Best and brightest” my eye. It’s exactly because of clueless Americans like you that we are going down in flames.


Southern farmers didn’t live with other Whites. They lived with their black slaves. Nowadays White farmers live surrounded by illegal Hispanic Indian workers and their families on welfare.

They send their White children to schools that are 70 to 80 percent 80 IQ Hispanic Indian.

Cheap labor rules over ethnicity and even their children’s schools.

And there are almost no Jewish farmers in this country.


Actually, Whites did this. The 1968, the Affirmative Action Civil Rights Act was made law by a White male Senate and more than 90 percent White male Congress.

An all White male Supreme Court ruled against hiring of qualified Whites in favor of extremely unqualified Blacks in the Griggs vs Duke Power and Kaiser vs Weber cases.

Kaiser vs Weber was about the fact that Kaiser Steel mills required that applicants for foremen have a high school diploma.

All White male Supreme Court ruled against merit hiring in favor of unqualified non White hiring

It was a White male Government that did it. There were very few, almost no White women senators, cabinet members, judges, congress critters or even attorneys between 1968 to 1973 when affirmative action was implemented.

Blame your fathers and grandfathers generation, sometimes known as the Greatest Generation because it won WW2.

Nice you you guys to stay anonymous while you get my info and then don’t publish my post which breaks no rules, certainly not after reading your rant.
Maybe instead of helping my fellow Americans like I have all these 48 years, I will also be in the streets purging when the economy collapses this year.
I will simply find another douche white guy to take all my anger out on. lol
I’m a supersoldier of 3rd ID, they know me, hope you don’t get to up and close.

Gonna try this again, you blocked my original post. I am Indian born and raised in Chicago, Engineer and combat veteran OIF 3rd ID. You owe me your freedoms then throw us under the bus.
Not finished yet. we are also Christian, prolife, conservative Republicans.
You could not dream of competing with me, I would destroy you, physically, I am still battle ready, maybe better to give you a cerebral beat down.
If you meant enough I would gladly lose my good standing in the American Legion and Oathkeepers in order to make an example out of you.
You sir are the problem in America. Hey you know there were brown skin people here before the whites? oops
Lt. Borkert, you know I am always right, will this douche figure it out or do I need to hurt him?
