The Unbearable Whiteness of Liberal Media

Gabriel Arana, American Prospect, May 12, 2014

On the staff of The American Prospect, I’m the only member of an ethnic minority. That’s not because I bring all the variety the magazine needs, or because the editors don’t think diversity is valuable. Everyone on the masthead of this liberal publication is committed to being inclusive–not just of racial and ethnic minorities but of women; gays, lesbians, and transgender people; and the poor.

It’s not just the Prospect. Journalism upstarts like Vox Media and FiveThirtyEight have come under fire recently for lack of diversity in their hires, but that’s largely because they are drawing from the milky-white pool of “existing talent.” In the corner of the publishing industry that caters to college-educated wonks–a slightly fuzzy designation, but I’ve included most of the publications my colleagues and I read on a daily basis–racial and ethnic diversity is abysmal.

Nearly 40 percent of the country is non-white and/or Hispanic, but the number of minorities at the outlets included in this article’s tally–most of them self-identified as liberal or progressive–hovers around 10 percent. The Washington Monthly can boast 20 percent, but that’s because it only has nine staffers in total, two of whom belong to minority groups. Dissent, like the Prospect, has one. Given the broad commitment to diversity in our corner of the publishing world, why is the track record so poor?

{snip} When you’re in the business of telling stories, lacking diversity means you’re limited in the sorts of stories you can tell–or even think of telling. A newsroom filled with white guys simply lacks the same imagination as one with people from an array of backgrounds. {snip}

A large part of the problem is simply that no one is keeping track. Unlike the National Association of News Editors, the American Society of Magazine Editors does not track the number of minorities among magazine staff.

Most of the editors I spoke with conceded up front that their record of hiring and retaining people of color was poor, but few knew the number off-hand. {snip}

{snip} In my survey, the center-left New Republic scored higher on the racial and ethnic-diversity scale than the rest of its more progressive counterparts save Mother Jones, with 12.5 percent of staff members hailing from minority groups.

The recession, too, took a toll on diversity. At newspapers, the percentage of minorities on staff decreased from 13.73 to 12.37 percent between 2008 and 2012. Anecdotally, the downturn has had a similar effect on the magazine world. {snip}

In the struggle to stay afloat, worrying about diversity came to be seen as quaint. “Up until 2008, newsrooms–especially large ones–were really really conscious about diversity,” says Slate editor David Plotz, whose publication’s staff composition of 75 is about 6.7 percent minority. “The recession made newsrooms very miserly thinking about issues like that. The thinking was, ‘We are in survival mode, we are about saving our jobs. This is not an issue we care about.'”

The stagnation of the industry also means there are few opportunities to increase diversity. “The staff here is unionized, which means there is little job turnover,” says Richard Kim, executive editor at The Nation, who is Asian American and gay. “We only get to make a hire every four or five years.” Among the progressive publications I examined, The Nation scored the lowest, with slightly over 4 percent of its staff hailing from racial and ethnic minority groups.

But the primary reason magazine staffs are so white is structural. “We practice fairly specialized form of journalism and the pool of people who do it isn’t terribly large to begin with, and then you look at the group of people who are practicing at a higher level and it’s just not a diverse pool,” Foer says.

The road that ends with a spot on staff at places like The New RepublicThe Atlantic, or the Prospect is paved with privilege. It starts with unpaid internships, which serve both as training grounds and feeders to staff positions.

“Most of our staff comes through our intern program,” says Harper’s editor Ellen Rosenbush. “Do we get as many applicants of color as we’d like? Probably not, but we do get them and we have hired them.” There’s a straightforward reason for the dearth of intern applications: Those who can afford to rely on mom and dad for a summer or a semester tend to be well-off and white.

While publications like The Atlantic and The Nation have begun to pay their interns minimum wage–in the case of the latter, after an intern revolt last year–most publications offer a meager stipend or do not pay at all. Slate pays its interns $10 an hour. Internships at The New Republic, Salon, Harper’s, and the Washington Monthly are all unpaid. The Prospect pays its interns a stipend of $100 per week. On the bright side, a number of publications offer paid entry-level fellowships: The Prospect’s pays $33,000 and includes benefits, The New Republic offers its reporter-researchers $25,000, and Mother Jones gives its fellows $1,500 per month. But money’s not the only issue when it comes to interns. Most publications put little effort into recruiting for their internship programs, and the fact of the matter is that a black or Latino kid who grew up on the South Side of Chicago is far less likely to have even heard of The New Republic or the Prospect than a white woman growing up on the Upper West Side.

This highlights another key reason the country’s leading think publications lack diversity: the industry’s reliance on social networks for hiring. The people we know–professionally and personally–tend to have similar backgrounds, and so when editors cast the net to build up the applicant pool for a position, they are largely recruiting people who look and think like themselves. {snip}

If magazines want to make their staffs more inclusive, it requires more than good intentions and a broad commitment to diversity. “To use the 12-step language, first you have to name the problem,” says Monika Bauerlein, co-editor of Mother Jones, which has improved diversity in the past several years through concerted recruiting efforts, yielding 12.5 percent of its 40-person staff who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups. “Diversity is something that we emphasize in every posting and that we look to as an important part in the candidates that we talk to.”

{snip}

Like poverty, diversity is not a problem that will just address itself, and a broad commitment is not enough. It takes effort and planning, which is why universities–the leading institutions on the diversity front–invest so heavily in recruitment. But first you need to name and quantify the problem. Next time someone asks, I’m hoping my colleagues at other publications will at least know how many people of color they’ve got on staff.

    First they beg for admittance. Next they ask for acceptance. Then they seek representation. Finally they demand obeisance.

    • Anna Tree

      I think the power of the leftist liberals to brainwash the whites is in their IQs/intelligence, and in a lesser part, their whiteness.

      Let the media hire more non-whites, not a few but many: it will destroy them two fold: by lessening even more the quality of their argumentation and by giving examples for our claims.
      Like it happened in the DMVs and so many others places…

      • TruthBeTold

        It will also cause racial tension in the workplace as blacks will keep making unreasonable demands and start accusing their white bosses of racism.

        White will be stymied.

      • NotTooSwift

        Why do you think they keep the numbers of non-whites very limited? These people known exactly what would happen by hiring too many. They aren’t stupid, I mean, look at their average 112 IQ.

        • tetrapod

          As much as I admire their sublime intelligence, they frighten me too. I always feel they’re two steps ahead, and no matter what strategy we adopt, they’ll already have anticipated and countered it.

          • TL2014

            That’s only because you agree to play by their rules. Outsmart them. That’s how the game works.

          • Terra Magnum Imperium

            Agreed, if you play by their rules you have already lost the game…

          • John R

            I hear what you are saying, but don’t give them too much credit. Look at some recent stories: The Duke Lacrosse Case, and the Trayvon Martin shooting. In both cases, the news media thought they had a perfect propaganda story, and what happened? In both cases they ended up getting caught with egg on their face when the real facts started coming out. So, take heart: Our enemy is clever, yes, but they are not ten feet tall.

          • Garrett Brown

            If they were ten feet tall all you would need to do is take their knees out with a low yoko gari.

          • Sick of it

            112 is sublime intelligence? Or 107, as Svigor put it, or as low as the 90s, according to charts I’ve seen. I’ve known people working for minimum wage with much higher IQs.

          • tetrapod

            You are correct. 112 in itself is hardly sublime. However, from what I’ve seen, their average of one standard deviation above the white 100 results in a higher absolute number of profoundly gifted (180+) than whites, despite our outnumbering them by a factor of ~40 to 1.

            You can do the math yourself by locating a chart that shows the expected population ratio at each IQ level.

          • Sick of it

            I’ve never met a single Jewish person with an IQ at even 150+ in my entire life. From where do you get such a strange supposition? Especially considering we invented almost everything…how do they become high level geniuses after having done nothing but modifications on existing ideas and inventions?

        • Svigor

          The real figure’s much closer to 107 than 112.

          • tetrapod

            Could you please provide a link to your source? Everything I see on the subject from trustworthy sources says 112-115. Believe me, if there’s evidence to the contrary I’d love to see it.

        • Alucard_the_last

          Negroes who have an IQ of 112 is the high end of the bell curve.

    • rowingfool

      First they replaced the vegetable pickers, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a farm laborer.

      Then they replaced the roofers and carpenters, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a tradesman.

      Then they replaced the Programmers, Doctors and Lawyers, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Professional.

      Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.

      • TruthBeTold

        Very good.

      • Tom Thumb

        No one is ever going to “replace ” anyone who is useful, ie – the roofers and carpenters.

        • Mergatroyd

          Newsflash: They already have. Come to California and look for one single White on a construction crew. There is nothing but Mexicans doing sub-par, shoddy work.

        • Terra Magnum Imperium

          Disagree Tom Thumb, all the Handymen here in NJ are from Central America.

        • Garrett Brown

          What kind of rock do you live under?

      • When they came for the Gypsies, did you see that black homo kiss the cake from his BF’s lips? WTF?

      • Alucard_the_last

        When they come for the illegals and Marxist, I’ll say nothing.

      • John R

        Touché!

    • tetrapod

      One more … They ask for reparations.

    • Mergatroyd

      Then let non-Whites support the “diverse” media. No self-respecting White should spend one thin dime on media that present them as fools, clowns and idiots and pushes miscegenation on us, while covering up massive black-on-White crime. That in itself is a crime against the White Race.

      If all of us Whites rejected these anti-White screed-y rags, they’d go out of business overnight.

      • TL2014

        Exactly! Quit patronizing professional sports, entertainment and related industries. They will die quite quickly. Quit being sheep led to the slaughter.

        I pretty much boycott everything I can. I will homeschool my children. People need to quit being so passive. That is unbecoming for true Americans. We don’t need to put up with it if we don’t want to!!!

        • Terra Magnum Imperium

          Agreed, Following the heard will get you slaughtered, unfortunately well fed sheep rarely complain…

          • Sick of it

            And few would agree to boycott pornography, which has been one of “their” big cash cows for centuries. Same with prostitution. Then there’s the banking system…

  • John R

    Of course the liberal media is White. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again: Minorities are NOT liberals. Liberalism only exists among White people. Minorities are racialists. But, the point to be remembered is that the White liberal media serves minority interests.

    • TruthBeTold

      You should expound on that in an article for AR.

      • Probably not much to expound upon. NAMs aren’t doctrinaire liberals or leftists, but they latch on to liberalism to benefit from some of the features of doctrinaire liberalism, most notably a big welfare state and gibs.

        • connorhus

          But as was obvious in 2008 the Blacks will not support a White Liberal over one of their own in the same primary. They may turn on one who is a Republican or Conservative (Or at least tries to say he or she is) but the critical mass has been reached in the Liberal Democrat party and with the end of White Liberals riding it’s coat tails whenever there is a Black politician running for the same office.

        • Svigor

          I was going to quibble, but I suppose Jews are NAMs.

    • Rhialto

      Minorities may not be ideologically Liberal, but they join with Liberals against their common enemy.

      • Mergatroyd

        It’s something that is taught to them, explicitly, by the schools and media, that their worst enemy is the White Man, the one that provides for their housing, food and education and built the 1st world society they demand for themselves.

        I can’t tell you how sick I am of this damned anti-White narrative where we Whites are blamed for ALL the failures of non-Whites past, present and future.

        It dehumanizes us and sets us up to be attacked by blacks, browns and other non-Whites, just as planned.

        • TL2014

          Why is that? Because we allow the school districts to get away with that indoctrination.

          The heart of the matter is that modern Western man is too comfortable. We forgot how to fight for our existence. We should be involved in politics day and night, running for our local school councils, writing letters and petitions, and pretty much assuming that our survival as a society depends on those actions – because it sure as hell does.

          Here in Chicago, you still can be part of your local school council if you don’t have children in a particular school. We all should be doing as much as we can to get involved in our public school districts. I don’t do nearly as much as I should – but I am painfully aware that I should be engaged in fighting for our society day and night.

          Our enemies did, and we let them. Where did that get us?

            My wife volunteered as an assistant teacher at an all white elementary school to help during reading. After one paragraph, the student told my wife “White people were really bad people.”
            I’ve challenged them several times.
            Here are their tactics. The principal cuts off public objections and says “let’s set up an appointment.” At the appointment, it’s me against her and two teachers she has brought in. Get it? 3 against 1 determines the local reality.
            “I don’t think any race should be disparaged in elementary school.” They answer “We teach the truth!” I say “Well, Amerindians did a lot of nasty things.” “Whites stole their land!” So, if you think you can say just the right words, like a combination lock, they will agree, then you will be disappointed.
            I think the first tactic is you need to show up with 5 friends (but don’t tell the principal ahead of time.) At least then it is 5 against 3.
            Another tactic might be to hand out selected quotations to parents as they pick up their kids. Include a contact email address. Be prepared to have the authorities descend on you like a ton of bricks, as you hand out the papers.

          • Anna Tree

            You’re so right.
            Almost every week, my kids come from school with some liberal leftist and/or anti-white teachings and I have to unbrainwash them.
            It’s a difficult job at that age when they do want to fit in and they kind of idolize their teacher and kind of want independence from their parents.
            It takes time and reason but it has to be done.
            And it is a continuous conversation as sadly it is not only in school but in their reading and on TV.

          • This is why I home-school my daughter and why we do not watch negrovision.

          • Garrett Brown

            Why are you letting them watch garbage on tv? And why are they not in a private school or being home schooled?

          • Anna Tree

            No I don’t! Actually, we don’t have cables. we have a TV just for selective dvds from the library.

            I don’t have the money for private school. Beside, sadly, liberal leftism is not only in public schools.
            I wish I was homeschooling. My excuses are that I don’t think I am strong enough and that I loved school, I want my kids to have this experience.

            Also, I think that too much distancing them from the reality is not the best solution. If not for those discussions about the untruths they learn at school, they wouldn’t be as much aware of the dangers. The same way you cannot really teach about road safety inside your leaving room, you cannot really teach about race, diversity, homosexuality, feminism etc in a family cocoon. The best anti-dote is seeing and experiencing, and have a parent/mentor who can coach you to question the dogmas.

            I don’t push my beliefs nor my convictions on my children. This sometimes can hit back. I discuss issues and tell them my thoughts and the reasons why I agree or not with the consensus. I always tell them the different opinions and the journey I took to arrive to my own conclusions. It is right now more of a monologue, as my children just repeat what they heard and don’t have much an opinion yet. But I ask many questions and it is often when they try to answer, that common-sense and healthy instincts come to them.

            That is what I want the most: that they think a lot, for themselves. I don’t want to tell them what they must think for the same reasons that I don’t want them to believe the opinions of the other persons they will come to like in their lives. I want them to be open-minded but skeptic and critic. I want them to think rationally and research the different views out there, that it is okay to change your mind when approach with a good rebuttal or new information.

            That the truth is not always easy but it is nevertheless the truth but that sometimes, it is better to keep things to yourself or to find friends in people who think like you. And and and: that with people who looks like you, there is more chance that they think or like the same things like you do and this is because we have evolved in the same conditions and so mostly in the same way, so we are kin. That kin is like family, we should protect each others.

            And that I want grand-children who look like them 🙂

          • Garrett Brown

            You better start pushing your beliefs and policies on your children. If Le Pen doesn’t get elected you won’t want to leave it up to France’s government sponsored school system to teach them.

          • Zinc30

            My kids are in college now. I wish I had talked to them more about race when they were in grade school. They complain that I talked too much about it.
            Every day in school, and all the time on TV, they get the PC side of things. I wish I had spent 15 minutes everyday reading articles to them along with discussions. Reality cop shows are a good source too, since, no surprise, most of the bad guys are blacks. Tape the news and show them examples of black crime.
            If you don’t tell your kids about racial reality, they will not get it anywhere else. And you need to tell them every week. The PC message is everyday and every hour: total saturation.
            Even if they complain, keep talking. From their view, the whole world is PC, except their parents. The odds are against the parents.
            I did succeed in conveying one message “Thou shall not date or marry outside our race.” The bare minimum. They also understand that blacks are dangerous.

          • Anna Tree

            Thank you for your advices. Just earlier, I felt I needed to say something to my eldest son regarding a movie my kids were watching and I hesitated exactly because I don’t want them to think I am talking on this subject too much as I fear they could tune me out if I do. But okay I will… He does listen, I hope he will never stop and will never think that I am wrong because all the world think differently than me… I need to start telling him more about logical fallacies too LOL

            I still don’t think pushing my convictions is the best way, it has to come by building his character and nourishing his mind with information that is silenced out there and also coaching his critical skills. But I do believe education is brainwashing and that you counter brainwashing by brainwashing. So my goal is to find a good balance.

            I wish for an Amren Youth camp though! But of course, liberal leftists and most non-whites would accuse me of racist indoctrination but why a black youth camp is okay but a white youth camp is racist indoctrination!? For the same reason that a black student association is okay but a white one is KKK… Because the Universal Declaration of Human Rights give the right to self determination and the freedom of association for all people… as long it seems as they are non-whites. Seems more and more that they don’t think whites are humans! Deshumanisation is I think the step between 3 and 4:

            I read somewhere that the escalation of Prejudice is as follows:
            1. Disparaging Terms
            2. Avoidance
            3. Discrimination
            4. Physical Violence
            5, Genocide, extermination, or ethnic cleansing

    • So CAL Snowman

      Exactly, the non Whites identify as lefty democrats because they correctly understand that the lefty democrats are anti – White. At the end of the day, if non – Whites replaced all of the White liberals in the media, all we would ever see would be brown and black faces calling for White genocide and reparations.

      • John R

        If blacks took over the country, their “liberalism” would consist of more government welfare, more jobs for their own race, and hatred of “whites, Jews and fa##ots!”.

        • Mergatroyd

          If blacks took over the country, it would quickly look like Detroit.

          There is NO WAY blacks could run a 1st world technological country except into the ground. White countries are a reflection of Whites, not blacks.

          • cherrie greenbaum123

            Black men aren’t even capable of fastening their pants above their knees, not to mention building or running a first world country. The level of concentration, dedication, and effort just isn’t there. If you want to see how blacks run a county, take a look at Nigeria or Ghana. Just for starters.

    • connorhus

      You are 100% correct in that assessment and it is one reason I believe the tide is turning quickly now. Whites have lost the majority in the beloved Democrat party. Hillary was the first casualty back in 08 but we will seeing it more and more now as the old Whites are swept aside. They used the Blacks and Browns for their own ends but corrupted themselves in the process.

    • Mergatroyd

      The liberal media are not White.

    • Dr. Möbias

      Why do you have the idea that the liberal media are White? They are not.

  • tetrapod

    How I do hope for the day minorities and their leftoid Svengali elites just give in to Occam’s razor and admit the bugaboo of white privilege is a natural consequence of a society whites have created for themselves, and not some premeditated evil.

    • Frank_DeScushin

      Even if the leftoid Svengali elites admitted that white privilege is nothing more than whites creating better societies (which they never will admit), the leftoid Svengali elites would still make it their purpose to attack “racist” whites who refuse to disadvantage themselves so that non-whites can benefit from the privilege whites created.

  • RealisticGuy

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the
    ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the
    gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
    But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly
    whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of
    government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in
    accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their
    arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of
    all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in
    the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body
    politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
    – Cicero

    Liberalism means tyranny of the soul.

    • Geo1metric

      Cicero had a lot to say about current events in the West. Go figure.

      • RealisticGuy

        So did Plato. His explanations in Republic of how democracy turns to tyranny are striking.

        • Sick of it

          Which is precisely why the Founders created a Republic rather than a Democracy. These people cynically invoke a Constitution not meant for them or their way of life.

          • RealisticGuy

            The American republic was originally simply a democracy with some plutocracy blended in. Only land owning European men could vote, the idea being that they would make better choices than non land owners.

            Democracy is based around the concept of equality. If we are all equals, then no one ought be King. That is what the founders were going for. When any limits are put on democracy, the spirit of equality breaks through, and everyone is given a part to play, regardless of their worthiness. So Africans, and then women in turn, were made voters.

            Democracy is always foul, whether you dress it up with protections and property requirements or not. The mob will take hold. One of histories many lessons.

          • Sick of it

            Not only did the Founders not think that every man was equal, they did not think that every white man was equal. Take a look at their original naturalization laws…which were given up in order to appease state governments. You’re thinking too much of the French Revolution and various pariahs who were no longer welcome in America after the war.

          • RealisticGuy

            Have you read the declaration of independence recently? If not then please do.

            The founding principle of this country is equality. Democracy means rule of the people and that is precisely what we have.

          • Einsatzgrenadier

            We don’t have a democracy, we have a bunch of tyrants in Washington. If the US was a democracy, there wouldn’t be any black-on-white crime and massive third world invasion.

          • RealisticGuy

            We are certainly entering the tyranny stage.

          • Sick of it

            Perhaps you’ve forgotten that those words were written at a time when slavery existed in this nation and by men who were owners of slaves. Equality in the eyes of God does not mean equality in the affairs of state.

            Do people vote or do they not?

          • Sick of it

            Most people who can vote today would not have been able to vote back then, with good reason.

          • RealisticGuy

            Indeed. But even those who could vote at the beginning had no legitimacy. Did they not bring us what we have today?

            The US system was wrong headed from the start.

          • Sick of it

            That’s like saying the Roman Republic was a Democracy. It was not. Neither was our Republic. What we have now is not even the false state created after the Civil War, it is something worse. Something that much different. We ARE heading toward something akin to “the Terror” in France. We ARE more or less in a tyranny today. That is indisputable. What we had then did not cause what we have now. The 48ers and others like them created what we have now.

          • RealisticGuy

            The founders did believe in equality, at least in their class. That equality spread to everyone. As it was always destined to do.

            You may want to hold the constitution up as good, but it was a horrible idea.

            Government is just another profession. Like engineering. We don’t have the engineer consult the layman to solve his problems. The average man, inc the average white male landholder had no business in government whatsoever.

            We vote because we are supposedly equal and as such the only right is the majority of we equals. This was the thinking in the beginning as much as it is today, the only difference as I have said is that more are now equal.

          • Geo1metric

            “The founding principle of this country was equality. ”

            If you mean equality under the law, I agree with you.

          • RealisticGuy

            If by under the law, you mean the creation of it as well, then yes, that is my meaning.

            Bear in mind, that in a state where men are equal under the law, they begin to see eachother as equal generally. Equality reaches even to ideas, animals and children.

          • Spikeygrrl

            The USA is not a democracy and was not designed to be one. It is a constitutional representative republic. PLEASE learn the difference; it is PROFOUND.

          • RealisticGuy

            Democracy means rule by the people. It doesn’t mean direct voting. Republic just means that the state is publicly owned.

            The Greeks used sortition. Drawing of lots.

            Democracy arose from the idea that those who are equal in any respect are equal absolutely. All are alike free, therefore they claim that all are free absolutely… The next is when the democrats, on the grounds that they are all equal, claim equal participation in everything.

            – Aristotle

            Whether the founders realized it or not, they were democrats. They were liberals, not philosophers; how were they to know one way or another?

          • 2War Abn Vet

            I have to comment on a subject that greatly disturbs me. Our Founders never intended or established this nation as a “Democracy”. By and large they, and their contemporaries, all had only contempt for “Democracy”.

            “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” – John Adams

            Democracy was the right of the people to choose their own tyrant.”- James Madison

            “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those willing to work and give to those who would not.” – Thomas Jefferson

            “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury.” – Alexander
            Tytler

            “By giving the government unlimited powers, the most arbitrary rule can be made legal; and in this way a democracy may set up the most complete despotism imaginable.” –economist Friedrich August von Hayek

            “Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville

            Only moronic leftists continue to whine about “Democracy”.

          • RealisticGuy

            I made a response to this sentiment for Spikeygrrl. Please accept it as a response to you also.

          • 2War Abn Vet

            Sorry, I don’t know where or what it was.

          • RealisticGuy

            Here’s a repost then.

            Democracy means rule by the people. It doesn’t mean direct voting. Republic just means that the state is publicly owned.

            The Greeks used sortition. Drawing of lots.

            Democracy arose from the idea that those who are equal in any respect are equal absolutely. All are alike free, therefore they claim that all are free absolutely… The next is when the democrats, on the grounds that they are all equal, claim equal participation in everything.

          • 2War Abn Vet

            Those ignorant Founders! They didn’t know who they were, or what they were establishing.

          • RealisticGuy

            Precisely! What they created was destined to fail from the very beginning.

            There are more problems: The way the constitution is laid out, congressmen cannot be punished for their acts in congress. Any damage they do, as long as it was legally done, they are completely immune from any legal response.

            The founders had just won a war, and remember they were just regular upper class men. They did the best they could with what they understood. Well, most of them did, some of them were trying to game the system they were creating from the moment it was conceived of.

            They certainly did better than the upper class men of today would do. I’ll give them that.

  • When people do not practice that which they preach, then it is almost always the case that that which they preach is nothing more than a sociopolitical weapon wielded for their own benefit.

    Look up on Wikipedia: Thrasybulus. Yeah, he was big on equality.

  • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

    It should also be noted that the overwhelming majority of people who read the aforementioned rags (or, likely, are even capable of doing so), are also White. Why? Not a clue. But I’d wager that interest in any of the junk they cover is nihl among minorities.

    The stagnation of the industry also means there are few opportunities to increase diversity. “The staff here is unionized, which means there is little job turnover,” says Richard Kim, executive editor at The Nation, who is Asian American and gay. “We only get to make a hire every four or five years.” Among the progressive publications I examined, The Nation scored the lowest, with slightly over 4 percent of its staff hailing from racial and ethnic minority groups.

If it makes you feel any better, quite a few of them are actually delusional enough that they follow what they preach for mainstream America: lefty Jewish women barely reproduce, support the latest lefty fads (eg trans rights), and will gladly walk into any ghetto in Detroit to volunteer in a women’s shelter.

      How do I know? I used to be like that, until – not sure what happened, but in my mid-twenties I began a gradual process of waking up. It’s complete now in my early thirties.

      I don’t think that’s the issue. The issue is that there aren’t enough non-whites capable of performing that work. I’m sure most idiots who write for these rags will gladly share their home and give up their job for a “minority” applicant.

      Have you read the comments to Lori Gottlieb’s column on Obamacare at the NYT? They are quite telling. Essentially, people harangue her for complaining about having to pay a higher premium. Commenters actually said that she should gladly pay as much in order to benefit the downtrodden. If you need help locating that column, I will try to find a link.

        You think settling the frontier was easy? Not only did you have to fight your way through, you also had to organize it. Blacks haven’t organized anything. Not even their own liberation, be that as it may. They float along — moaning and complaining all the while waiting for the next handout from whites. It is all rather uninspiring. Blacks are in a near constant state of crisis wherever they are found.

        • Ringo Lennon

          Blacks belong here because they were brought here. I’ve always said they never sould of been brought here. Nobody likes whites more than me. Blacks have nothing to offer.

        Hey Ringo, just because you can’t see the down votes doesn’t mean they aren’t there you silly beatle. Whites fought the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the French and Indian wars, the Civil War, World War 1, World War 2, etc. Over a million Irish were slaves in the United States. Whites have been enslaved all over the world and throughout time. White girls from Ukraine and Russia are forced into massive sex slavery rings run by Israel. White girls in the UK are forced into sex slavery rings by Pakistanis and Muslims. We have been through so much more than the africans it’s not even debatable.

            Did you know that only 1 of the population of the U.S. ever owned slaves? That’s according to the U.S. census bureau. Next time someone tells you that YOU brought slavery into this country or OWNED slaves (LOL on that) remind them of these numbers

            In fact MY people, the White race, did not bring them here, capiche?

            BUT, we did fight an unfortunate, internecine war that killed over 500,000 of our brave young White males to put an end to it.

  • True diversity in hiring at these libthurd rags would include hiring:

    –poor whites, not just the upper middle class ones
    –alcoholics, to give the stories that certain heady air
    –pedophiles, the next group to be worshipped by liberals as oppressed
    –the homeless ones who stand on street corners yelling gibberish
    –children to give that youth perspective that’s lacking
    –ex-cops who could tell the truth about WHO commits the crimes
    –ex-soldiers to give the writings a Nazi flavor
    –anti-feminists
    –housewives
    –gamers like Roissy and others who hate women, so we get that point of view
    –Christians, who are constantly denigrated by the libthurd rags
    –white supremacists, neo Nazis, and skinheads

    Notice that the article above was falling all over itself to excuse the lack of “diversity” on media staffs–except for the real one: plain old liberal racism and hypocrisy.

    The recession, too, took a toll on diversity.

    WHAT?!? I thought “diversity was our greatest strength!” If so, why is it seen as a liability then at all these media outlets. If it’s really a strength, then it should be the last thing to go, not the first.

    At newspapers, the percentage of minorities on staff decreased from 13.73 to 12.37 percent between 2008 and 2012.

    Newspapers are hardly new, upstart media outlets. Many of them have been around for 100 years, and almost all for the 50 years since the “civil rights movement.” You mean to say THAT hasn’t been enough time for them to diversify their staffs? Liars and hypocrites, all of them.

  • Mergatroyd

That way they can still write the articles for Jamal while he rest his feet across their back under the desk and pretends to type on a computer.

  • “The recession, too, took a toll on diversity. At newspapers, the

    Oh, my Gumps, that is Truely Horrific !!!” This represents a decline of 1.36% in four years. What’s worse is that the decline in Polish people working in newrooms during the same period was….

    Hold on, I can’t find my notes… What was the decline of Polish people during the same period??? Yes, now I know! There are no Polish Notes! In fact I’d be willing to bet that nobody even bothered to calculate it. Only the % of non-farm animals and minorities working at that magazine seems to have been recorded.

    It’s truely distressing that magazines have nothing better to do than to worry about a 1% decline in the pop of incompetant placeholders granted positions there. Truly we are on a terminal decline when all the white publications have nothing better to do than plan how to disenfranchise whites: those working class people who once made the greatest country on Earth.

    I think many whites have nothing to live for, no purpose anymore except to somehow get a higher end Benz than the neighbor next door. Or maybe more sacks of shoes than other women at the office. What we need is a unifying event. Like to wake up and realize that we’re going the way of the Polar Bear! Maybe then things will turn around?

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    White men have been purged from big city newspapers going on 30 years now. Apparently, that’s not a story that’s fit to print in our ‘sensitive’ newsrooms. What they wring their hands about will always be a problem in this country. The working age population is much, much, whiter than the younger population. No calls to limit immigration or limit their births, though, to help alleviate this ‘unfairness’ they are concerned about. So there’s more than one thing they don’t want to discuss or talk about.

    It’s easy to be liberal when you don’t have to deal with diversity. As soon as the staff begins to “diversify,” the new hires will start complaining about racism. It will become a lousy place to work.

    It’s really a point that can’t be hammered home enough.

    If white liberals are so eager for the Transformation, so eager to become a minority, so guilty and willing to give up their “privilege” – then dare them to do it, now!

    No one’s holding them back. Move to a non-white area, put their kids in non-white schools, give up their good jobs to non-whites.

      They’re cowards pure & simple. Just like hawkish conservatives who pushed for armed conflicts to fight commies then got waivers for their sons when their draft number came up. I guess everyone is sly and sneaky in their own way.

      Self preservation is the number one strand that’s common to beings, I guess?

    • It’s easier to talk the TALK, but it’s more difficult to walk the WALK. They are hypocrites. No one can help the skin they are born into. It’s up to us to treat each other with respect a HUMAN BEING deserves despite their color. If we love our pets that come in different colors, why can’t we have that unconditional love for our fellow human beings?

    Listening to “Imus in the Morning” the other day, he said something shocking. Talking to Tony Powell, a negro regular on his show, he said he hated white people. This is your typical self loathing Upper West Side of New York liberal white. Has all the money in the world yet he hates white people.

        This is the e-mail I sent him: One of the most ridiculous statements I’ve ever heard. A self loathing white liberal. Pathetic. Maybe you’re not a poor enough white man or maybe you have never been driven from your neighborhood. Just remember white people, who you hate, are the most generous people on the planet. Ray M.

          The last thing he is is self-loathing, or White; or a liberal. Look more closely.

    “When you’re in the business of telling stories, lacking diversity means you’re limited in the sorts of stories you can tell–or even think of telling. A newsroom filled with white guys simply lacks the same imagination as one with people from an array of backgrounds. ”

    Oh really! If this were true, why aren’t we swimming in literary art greater than that written by Dickens, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Twain, Faulkner, Poe, Orwell, Wilde, Joyce, Bradbury, Fitzgerald, and many other famous unimaginative story telling white guys? I don’t understand how all these unimaginative white guys were able to invent technology that benefits EVERONE’s lives today.

    Liberalism truly is a mental defect!

    I’ve been saying this for years. The white-Marxist, anti-American media (and entertainment and academia) are nothing more than self-loathing slobs who hide things like the on going race war between Mexicans and negroes in California, the ignore ‘bare backing’ (deliberately not having safe sex) and the turd world epidemics that have now sprang up in America due the invasion of America. Meanwhile, Hollywood always protrudes white southerners as people supporting the KKK with complete abandon and longing for slavery. Then negroes are ALWAYS successful, caring, more intelligent than most and the hero of the day. A complete opposite what these ‘people’ really are.

    “We practice fairly specialized form of journalism and the pool of
    people who do it isn’t terribly large to begin with, and then you look
    at the group of people who are practicing at a higher level and it’s
    just not a diverse pool”

    This is the same thing EVERY business or governmental branch runs into when it comes to hiring NAM’s, but they are still expected to meet quotas regardless of the number of qualified NAM applicants. I guess the same rules just don’t apply in lefty journalism. This reminds me of the convenient “we moved here for the schools” excuse for choosing to live in White urban enclaves.

  • Hunter Morrow

    That is because this is anti-man, anti-West blathering and moral preening by whites and jews. People who love to feel smug and superior but don’t have religion to use blather
    this “check your privilege” nonsense.

  • NoMosqueHere

    The bite of affirmative action isn’t hard enough. 40 percent of all whites should be fired from their jobs to make way for blacks and spanish. Then maybe whites will wake up.

    A lot of people who don’t have children always suggest private schools as though people could find and afford a private school as easily as they can find a decent $12,000 used car. First, there are not that many private schools especially in the suburbs where most Whites with children live. Most Catholic parishes have an elementary school and because of the horrors of public schools are flourishing. But the parish schools are crowded and as of now are allowed to admit Catholics first.
    Second, the cost of private and even parish schools is too much for the average lower middle class White family. The parish schools have a tax arrangement. One half the cost is a contribution to the parish not tuition so it is tax deductable. In addition to cost, there is transportation. Many Whites can afford $10,000 per year for 2 kids in the parish school and many cannot. There are a fair number of Lutheran and Christian schools, they cost a bit more than the parish school Few Whites can afford the $20,000 to $40,000 of private schools. Private schools are actually few and often located in cities. When both parents have to be at work in the morning they often can’t drive the kids to a far away private school.
    Third and most important private and even Catholic schools are as PC and anti White and liberal as the public schools. One big chain, the Waldorf schools were created to teach radical environmentalism decades ago. A relative of mine had 2 kids in a very expensive Catholic private school, $30,000 per year for the first with a discount for the second, only $26,000 per year. That was $56,000 per year. From first grade on all the kids got was you are evil because you are White, you and your parents are evil because you are White. They were not nuns. Only the administrators were nuns. All the teachers were women and most non Catholic. The irony was that about 70 percent of the students were microsoft kids and the rest were the children of contractors, DRs, lawyers, store owners, auto dealers, real estate agents etc who lived off the well paid microsoft employees. Of course every computer, the electricity,the heat, the cars, kitchen appliances, airplanes, medical care, every thing invented in the last 2,000 years that these women used ever day except for wallpaper and gunpowder was invented by those eeevil White men.
    Both kids had the same teacher for both third and the oldest for fifth grade. She was a Jew who did not appreciate the fact that she was privileged and lucky to teach well behaved
    intelligent children in a school run by civilized White nuns . She was lucky she was not condemned to teach in a black school.

    Anyway, they took the girls out when the youngest was in 4th grade and the older in fifth grade. There was an Indian in the 5th grade class. The anti White witch decided he must be a Hindu and therefore would be offended by class Christmas events so the wicked White witch decided to cancel Christmas. Turned out the kid was actually a Christian from that ancient Christian community that claims to have been converted 2,000 years ago by St. Thomas.
    That school was a Sacred Heart elite of the elite very expensive Catholic school. The private schools try to out do each other in anti White activity. It is like the profs at the top 50 universities. They regard their job as programming the children of the elite to change the world into an anti White marxist hell hole. There is a school Marlbrough school in Los Angeles, $40,000 per year no discount for siblings. The headmistress was a black affirmative action witch who wrote horrible reccommendations for the White kids who paid full tuition and glowing reccommendations for the token blacks who were on scholarship. One thing White parents of kids in Catholic schools wonder about is how all those poverty stricken hispanics flood the CAtholic parish schools when the tuition is so high. The White parents in the suburban parish schools probably subsidize the hispanics in other parish schools.
    I know there are a lot of Christian schools in the south east and Catholic schools in the northeastern cities. But there are huge parts of America where there is not a private school for 500 miles.
    Face it private schools are mostly found in the cities, not in the suburbs where most Whites live. it is all very well to say “I’d work 2 jobs to pay for private school” but would the extra job give you the extra $20,000 per year for tuition and transportation costs. And if you worked 2 jobs how would the kids get to the private school unless you lived in a city with public transportation and they were old enough to use it? Another practical consideration is friends. It can be a real hassle when all their friends live miles away and the parent who has to work 2 jobs to pay the tuition has to be a driver on weekends. I and many of my relatives and people I know did keep the kids in private school, but the cost is too much for many people, transportation is a problem, and the anti White propaganda is the same or worse than in the goverment schools. The Christian and Catholic schools are always slobbering around about save the africans. Christian Baptist schools in the south send the high schoolers to Haiti in the summer to pretend to work rebuilding after that earthquake 10 years ago. Many, many Catholic parish schools in S. California, S. Texas, Arizona and New Mexico adopt sister schools across the border and the kids and parents are always hassled to contribute to the mexican parishes.
    Liberalism is Christian charity run amuck.
    I and many of my relatives and friends all sent the kids to private schools. There is a lot more money and effort than just saying private school, first, you must find one nearby.And after all the money and time driving the kids to school and school activities,the kids get the same or worse anti White indoctrination.

    I’ve heard of people who work night and weekend shifts so as to home school the kids. But bear in mind that management arranges shifts and shifts are always changing. One thing great about homeschooling is that what with the projects and library trips and ever increasing homework that is supposed to raise the test scores of everyone, many White parents spend as much time on homework and projects as they would if they just home schooled. I think that math especially often ends up being taught at home because of the way math teaching changes every few years into even more complicated bizarre methods. I think most kids with average math skills actually learn high school math from parents tutoring them at home rather than the nonsensical new methods the dept of education invents every few years.
    First find a private school if there is one within 50 miles of you. Second find the money to pay for it. Third spend hours driving the kids to the private school. Fourth the kids will be exposed to the same or even worse anti White propaganda as they get in public schools. Your kids will be forced to read “To Kill a Mockingbird” told that Emmet Till was an innocent martyr and to worship MLK. They will also be told they and the parents who pay the salaries of the teachers are evil privileged Whites. They will be told that all southerners were evil racists. They will be told that every black murderer and rapist who was lynched was completely innocent.
    Just because all Catholic and some Christian schools are against abortion does not mean they conform to other conservative issues such as death penalty, gun control, crime especially black on White crime affirmative action, foreign aid to disfunctional countries, capitalism, low taxes, welfare, small goverment and all the other conservative issues.

    • If you live in a voucher state and the private school is close to the black or Hispanic undertows, then the private schools will have a lot of undertow voucher kids in them.
