One of the interesting things to read about WWII history was just how much economic damage the Nazis did to Germany by exterminating the Jews.
This was something covered a bit in Ordinary Men too, how factory mangers in occupied counties had a hard time complying with the Final Solution because of the number critical of skilled workers who were Jews who were being eliminated.
For centuries, because various European countries limited Jewish ownership of land, Jew were forced into professions where knowledge and skill was more important than real estate. Today we’d call the the knowledge economy.
When Germany exterminated Europe’s Jews, it exterminated scientists, doctors, academics, entrepreneurs, artisan craftsmen, and people critical in the knowledge economy.
We’ll, the Left is recycling the worst ideas of Leftist totalitarian regimes.
Now what they are doing is driving white people out of the knowledge economy.
New York City will phase out its program for gifted and talented students that critics say favors whites and Asian American students, while enrolling disproportionately few Black and Latino children, in the nation’s largest school system.
Starting in the next school year, the city will stop giving 4-year-olds a screening test used to identify gifted and talented students, according to an outline of the plan released by the city’s education department on Friday.
Too many white kids test into a program for advanced academics so it must be eliminated.
Gifted and talented programs are the foundation for a skilled professional class. A large percentage of these kids are the ones who go to college for medicine, engineering, business, etc.
The wealthiest parents will send their kids to private schools. The rest will pull out of NYC and head for the suburbs or another state. Those kids will grow up and not want to work in NYC.
Next is this story:
For more than 60 years, crews of volunteer and beloved docents have faithfully, skillfully and happily introduced a million school children, museum members, donors and other groups to the treasures of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The visitors, of all backgrounds from all over America and foreign countries, were elevated by docents’ knowledge and love of the museum’s 300,000 works of art. The docents’ contribution to the museum’s world-class reputation is incalculable As is the expansion of the horizons of busloads of inner city school children.
And now the docents been fired.
Unexpectedly, rudely, immediately and for the flimsiest and most insulting of reasons: Because most are white.
They will be eventually replaced by a “limited number of paid educators,” less experienced and knowledgable part-timers who will receive a munificent $25 dollars an hour. The current 82 volunteer docents could reapply to be among the much fewer volunteer “educators” who will be chosen on the basis of “an income equity-focused lens.” Whatever that means. How well do you think that will work?
In a nutshell, the docents have to go through a lot of training in art to be able to teach and give tours.
They don’t get paid.
So the demographic that has the free time to do all the work to become a docent without say financial reward is the wives of successful business men who don’t have jobs and can volunteer.
You’ll notice that lots of charities and volunteer organizations are filled with the wives of wealthy businessmen who want something productive and edifying to do during the day, especially something that increases their social status like being a docent at a museum or supporting a symphony or something like that.
It goes without saying, most of these people are middle-aged or older white women.
But that’s note equitable so they must be eliminated.
As a result, there will be fewer docents to give tours and fewer school kids and patrons will be educated in art.
But that is a small price to pat to have fewer white women in the museum.
In the name of equity, quality education is being eliminated. They would rather have ignorance and mediocrity than too many white people around.
Never is the answer to help others get better, only eliminate the successful.
I just don’t think these people understand that for many middle-class white professionals, a good education for their children is the hill they will die on.
Tell some successful professional family that their kids are not going to get a gifted education and tours of the art museum and they will not be happy.
This is where people who want to be left alone decide to take action, when you threaten their kids’ academic future.
I said it in one of my last posts and I’ll say it again, these people are pushing for a race war and I don’t think they understand what that means.
