Sandra Sellers broke racial etiquette and stepped on a landmine. It detonated and destroyed her career. Let this be a lesson to anyone else who dares to be a little too candid about race. You will also be severely punished for saying what you really think about the issue.
“Georgetown University’s law school says it has fired a White professor and placed another on administrative leave Thursday after a video surfaced showing them engaging “in a conversation that included reprehensible statements concerning the evaluation of Black students.”
The footage at the center of the controversy — which has gone viral on Twitter with more than 500,000 views — shows Professor Sandra Sellers speaking to Professor David Batson over Zoom about students’ academic performance.
“You know what? I hate to say this, I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are Blacks,” Sellers says. “Happens almost every semester and it’s like ‘oh come on.'” …”
You can’t even talk about racial differences in outcomes now even in the sense of just saying the intractable gaps causes you anxiety because they never go away. All White people in this country are guilty and complicit in systematic racism and benefit from their white privilege.
As I have been saying, White professionals are the people who feel the most silenced by this nonsense because they work in these institutions and have to put up with this toxic culture in their workplace. While there are true believers, there are also lots of people who feel like they are behind enemy lines and who spout the right slogans and go with the flow and blend in to avoid the outrage mobs.
If this was an enlightened country, we would just admit that racial differences exist and seem to be heritable to some degree and there is nothing really anyone can do about it and we should try to navigate around the issue instead of organizing mobs to burn people at the stake. Charles Murray has a book coming out this summer called Facing Reality which is certain to get him in a lot of trouble.
