    Default Wheels are coming off the institutional racism buggy

    That is to say: The “institutional racism” prattle would melt if it were ever subjected to the enlightened rationalism that is supposed to be the university’s reason for being. But that is Western culture, and out leaders don’t do Western culture anymore.

    What do they do? Marxism and voodoo, mainly. When you cannot cite hard evidence for the cosmic propositions you swear by, it can only be because we’re beset by “false consciousness” that prevents us from perceiving how whiteness and West-ness have corrupted us. All we can say for sure is what “disparate impact” theory tells us: We don’t have equality of outcomes, so that must mean we don’t have equality of opportunity, right? Because, you know, every one of us is a Mozart, an Einstein, a Jane Austen, a Bobby Fischer, or a LeBron just waiting to happen, if only there were a level playing field.

    Right.

    Exactly so. Your wording was a bit confusing in parts, but the overall message is right on!

    I think, as an example, to assure equitable outcomes, NBA rosters need to "look like America". Excellent place to start since most of the NBA is comprised of the folks who self identify as being members of an aggrieved class.

    First step: Mandate demographic equality in both roster spots and playing time and salaries.

    Second step: Assure that ALL rosters contain about 50% female members.

    Next: Every Division needs have at least 3 Asians. Make sure that Native Americans and Pacific islanders are also adequately represented.

    Next: Every roster be comprised of 63.4% percent "White" players.

    Next: Cap the African American Component at 13.4%.

    Should be easy to gain agreement from the folks demanding equal outcomes.

    You think Trumpism would even exist if our nation had continued in the enlightened rationalism of our founders?
    Don't confuse Donald Trump's arrogance for strength, or his false bravado for accomplishment, or his superficial interest in you for charisma.

    In 2017, Latino players made up 31.9 percent of the MLB, the highest number ever in that league's history. Latinos are represented on every major league team; each team has at least one Latino-born player.Jul 30, 2018

    Thanks, but I didn’t write it lol.

    There’s an ‘out’ that is supposed to be an ‘our’ in it. How does that happen? If I ever write something for the National Review [which will be never] I’m proofreading it a thousand times before I submit it.

    Between 2010 and 2019, the Latino share of the total U.S. population increased from 16% to 18%.

    This over representation must not stand..per the radical left.

    Professional sports is the closest thing to a perfect meritocracy.

    Owners don’t care if you’re a purple alien from another planet—if you can help win games, you’re going to have a contract.

    What makes it even more perfect is The. Fans. Do. Not. Care.

    Do you believe that the Founding Fathers would consider the riots, looting, burning, assaults and murders in cities that Democrats control and will not stop, "enlightened rationalism," Micky?

    That's the problem they don't ever actually consider anything. They just say the stupidest thing they can and it seems leftist are running a contest to see who can say the most stupid thing ever.
