    ...but still doesn't get what's going down.

    He's a (non-white) California faculty member, remaining anonymous to protect his career from the apostles of compassion and tolerance, who pens a devastating response to a faculty e-mail on the killing of George Floyd and its aftermath...in the apparent belief that hard facts and reason might actually count for something with the Dem-Media mobs.

    The good professor is clearly brilliant but even at this late hour can't seem to see that the issue has nothing to do with facts and reason but is rather about politics, ideology, and power. Period.

    Still, his letter, though a lengthy read which won't in the end make a difference to anyone, deserves attention and praise on its merits:

    Dear profs X, Y

    I am one of your colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley. I have met you both personally but do not know you closely, and am contacting you anonymously, with apologies. I am worried that writing this email publicly might lead to me losing my job, and likely all future jobs in my field.

    In your recent departmental emails you mentioned our pledge to diversity, but I am increasingly alarmed by the absence of diversity of opinion on the topic of the recent protests and our community response to them.

    In the extended links and resources you provided, I could not find a single instance of substantial counter-argument or alternative narrative to explain the under-representation of black individuals in academia or their over-representation in the criminal justice system. The explanation provided in your documentation, to the near exclusion of all others, is univariate: the problems of the black community are caused by whites, or, when whites are not physically present, by the infiltration of white supremacy and white systemic racism into American brains, souls, and institutions.

    Many cogent objections to this thesis have been raised by sober voices, including from within the black community itself, such as Thomas Sowell and Wilfred Reilly. These people are not racists or 'Uncle Toms'. They are intelligent scholars who reject a narrative that strips black people of agency and systematically externalizes the problems of the black community onto outsiders. Their view is entirely absent from the departmental and UCB-wide communiques.

    The claim that the difficulties that the black community faces are entirely causally explained by exogenous factors in the form of white systemic racism, white supremacy, and other forms of white discrimination remains a problematic hypothesis that should be vigorously challenged by historians. Instead, it is being treated as an axiomatic and actionable truth without serious consideration of its profound flaws, or its worrying implication of total black impotence. This hypothesis is transforming our institution and our culture, without any space for dissent outside of a tightly policed, narrow discourse.

    A counternarrative exists. If you have time, please consider examining some of the documents I attach at the end of this email. Overwhelmingly, the reasoning provided by BLM and allies is either primarily anecdotal (as in the case with the bulk of Ta-Nehisi Coates' undeniably moving article) or it is transparently motivated. As an example of the latter problem, consider the proportion of black incarcerated Americans. This proportion is often used to characterize the criminal justice system as anti-black. However, if we use the precise same methodology, we would have to conclude that the criminal justice system is even more anti-male than it is anti-black.

    Would we characterize criminal justice as a systemically misandrist conspiracy against innocent American men? I hope you see that this type of reasoning is flawed, and requires a significant suspension of our rational faculties. Black people are not incarcerated at higher rates than their involvement in violent crime would predict. This fact has been demonstrated multiple times across multiple jurisdictions in multiple countries.

    And yet, I see my department uncritically reproducing a narrative that diminishes black agency in favor of a white-centric explanation that appeals to the department's apparent desire to shoulder the 'white man's burden' and to promote a narrative of white guilt.

    If we claim that the criminal justice system is white-supremacist, why is it that Asian Americans, Indian Americans, and Nigerian Americans are incarcerated at vastly lower rates than white Americans? This is a funny sort of white supremacy. Even Jewish Americans are incarcerated less than gentile whites. I think it's fair to say that your average white supremacist disapproves of Jews. And yet, these alleged white supremacists incarcerate gentiles at vastly higher rates than Jews. None of this is addressed in your literature. None of this is explained, beyond hand-waving and ad hominems. "Those are racist dogwhistles". "The model minority myth is white supremacist". "Only fascists talk about black-on-black crime", ad nauseam.

    These types of statements do not amount to counterarguments: they are simply arbitrary offensive classifications, intended to silence and oppress discourse. Any serious historian will recognize these for the silencing orthodoxy tactics they are, common to suppressive regimes, doctrines, and religions throughout time and space. They are intended to crush real diversity and permanently exile the culture of robust criticism from our department.

    Increasingly, we are being called upon to comply and subscribe to BLM's problematic view of history, and the department is being presented as unified on the matter. In particular, ethnic minorities are being aggressively marshaled into a single position. Any apparent unity is surely a function of the fact that dissent could almost certainly lead to expulsion or cancellation for those of us in a precarious position, which is no small number.

    I personally don't dare speak out against the BLM narrative, and with this barrage of alleged unity being mass-produced by the administration, tenured professoriat, the UC administration, corporate America, and the media, the punishment for dissent is a clear danger at a time of widespread economic vulnerability. I am certain that if my name were attached to this email, I would lose my job and all future jobs, even though I believe in and can justify every word I type.

    The vast majority of violence visited on the black community is committed by black people. There are virtually no marches for these invisible victims, no public silences, no heartfelt letters from the UC regents, deans, and departmental heads. The message is clear: Black lives only matter when whites take them. Black violence is expected and insoluble, while white violence requires explanation and demands solution. Please look into your hearts and see how monstrously bigoted this formulation truly is.

    No discussion is permitted for nonblack victims of black violence, who proportionally outnumber black victims of nonblack violence. This is especially bitter in the Bay Area, where Asian victimization by black assailants has reached epidemic proportions, to the point that the SF police chief has advised Asians to stop hanging good-luck charms on their doors, as this attracts the attention of (overwhelmingly black) home invaders. Home invaders like George Floyd. For this actual, lived, physically experienced reality of violence in the USA, there are no marches, no tearful emails from departmental heads, no support from McDonald's and Wal-Mart. For the History department, our silence is not a mere abrogation of our duty to shed light on the truth: it is a rejection of it.

    The claim that black intraracial violence is the product of redlining, slavery, and other injustices is a largely historical claim. It is for historians, therefore, to explain why Japanese internment or the massacre of European Jewry hasn't led to equivalent rates of dysfunction and low SES performance among Japanese and Jewish Americans respectively. Arab Americans have been viciously demonized since 9/11, as have Chinese Americans more recently. However, both groups outperform white Americans on nearly all SES indices - as do Nigerian Americans, who incidentally have black skin. It is for historians to point out and discuss these anomalies. However, no real discussion is possible in the current climate at our department. The explanation is provided to us, disagreement with it is racist, and the job of historians is to further explore additional ways in which the explanation is additionally correct. This is a mockery of the historical profession.

    Most troublingly, our department appears to have been entirely captured by the interests of the Democratic National Convention, and the Democratic Party more broadly. To explain what I mean, consider what happens if you choose to donate to Black Lives Matter, an organization UCB History has explicitly promoted in its recent mailers. All donations to the official BLM website are immediately redirected to ActBlue Charities, an organization primarily concerned with bankrolling election campaigns for Democrat candidates. Donating to BLM today is to indirectly donate to Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. This is grotesque given the fact that the American cities with the worst rates of black-on-black violence and police-on-black violence are overwhelmingly Democrat-run. Minneapolis itself has been entirely in the hands of Democrats for over five decades; the 'systemic racism' there was built by successive Democrat administrations.

    The patronizing and condescending attitudes of Democrat leaders towards the black community, exemplified by nearly every Biden statement on the black race, all but guarantee a perpetual state of misery, resentment, poverty, and the attendant grievance politics which are simultaneously annihilating American political discourse and black lives. And yet, donating to BLM is bankrolling the election campaigns of men like Mayor Frey, who saw their cities devolve into violence. This is a grotesque capture of a good-faith movement for necessary police reform, and of our department, by a political party. Even worse, there are virtually no avenues for dissent in academic circles. I refuse to serve the Party, and so should you.

    The total alliance of major corporations involved in human exploitation with BLM should be a warning flag to us, and yet this damning evidence goes unnoticed, purposefully ignored, or perversely celebrated. We are the useful idiots of the wealthiest classes, carrying water for Jeff Bezos and other actual, real, modern-day slavers. Starbucks, an organisation using literal black slaves in its coffee plantation suppliers, is in favor of BLM. Sony, an organisation using cobalt mined by yet more literal black slaves, many of whom are children, is in favor of BLM. And so, apparently, are we. The absence of counter-narrative enables this obscenity. Fiat lux, indeed.

    There also exists a large constituency of what can only be called 'race hustlers': hucksters of all colors who benefit from stoking the fires of racial conflict to secure administrative jobs, charity management positions, academic jobs and advancement, or personal political entrepreneurship.

    Given the direction our history department appears to be taking far from any commitment to truth, we can regard ourselves as a formative training institution for this brand of snake-oil salespeople. Their activities are corrosive, demolishing any hope at harmonious racial coexistence in our nation and colonizing our political and institutional life. Many of their voices are unironically segregationist.

    MLK would likely be called an Uncle Tom if he spoke on our campus today. We are training leaders who intend, explicitly, to destroy one of the only truly successful ethnically diverse societies in modern history. As the PRC, an ethnonationalist and aggressively racially chauvinist national polity with null immigration and no concept of jus solis increasingly presents itself as the global political alternative to the US, I ask you: Is this wise? Are we really doing the right thing?

    As a final point, our university and department has made multiple statements celebrating and eulogizing George Floyd. Floyd was a multiple felon who once held a pregnant black woman at gunpoint. He broke into her home with a gang of men and pointed a gun at her pregnant stomach. He terrorized the women in his community. He sired and abandoned multiple children, playing no part in their support or upbringing, failing one of the most basic tests of decency for a human being. He was a drug-addict and sometime drug-dealer, a swindler who preyed upon his honest and hard-working neighbors.

    And yet, the regents of UC and the historians of the UCB History department are celebrating this violent criminal, elevating his name to virtual sainthood. A man who hurt women. A man who hurt black women. With the full collaboration of the UCB history department, corporate America, most mainstream media outlets, and some of the wealthiest and most privileged opinion-shaping elites of the USA, he has become a culture hero, buried in a golden casket, his (recognized) family showered with gifts and praise. Americans are being socially pressured into kneeling for this violent, abusive misogynist. A generation of black men are being coerced into identifying with George Floyd, the absolute worst specimen of our race and species.

    I'm ashamed of my department. I would say that I'm ashamed of both of you, but perhaps you agree with me, and are simply afraid, as I am, of the backlash of speaking the truth. It's hard to know what kneeling means, when you have to kneel to keep your job.

    It shouldn't affect the strength of my argument above, but for the record, I write as a person of color. My family have been personally victimized by men like Floyd. We are aware of the condescending depredations of the Democrat party against our race. The humiliating assumption that we are too stupid to do STEM, that we need special help and lower requirements to get ahead in life, is richly familiar to us. I sometimes wonder if it wouldn't be easier to deal with open fascists, who at least would be straightforward in calling me a subhuman, and who are unlikely to share my race.

    The ever-present soft bigotry of low expectations and the permanent claim that the solutions to the plight of my people rest exclusively on the goodwill of whites rather than on our own hard work is psychologically devastating. No other group in America is systematically demoralized in this way by its alleged allies. A whole generation of black children are being taught that only by begging and weeping and screaming will they get handouts from guilt-ridden whites.

    No message will more surely devastate their futures, especially if whites run out of guilt, or indeed if America runs out of whites. If this had been done to Japanese Americans, or Jewish Americans, or Chinese Americans, then Chinatown and Japantown would surely be no different to the roughest parts of Baltimore and East St. Louis today. The History department of UCB is now an integral institutional promulgator of a destructive and denigrating fallacy about the black race.

    I hope you appreciate the frustration behind this message. I do not support BLM. I do not support the Democrat grievance agenda and the Party's uncontested capture of our department. I do not support the Party co-opting my race, as Biden recently did in his disturbing interview, claiming that voting Democrat and being black are isomorphic. I condemn the manner of George Floyd's death and join you in calling for greater police accountability and police reform. However, I will not pretend that George Floyd was anything other than a violent misogynist, a brutal man who met a predictably brutal end.

    I also want to protect the practice of history. Cleo is no grovelling handmaiden to politicians and corporations. Like us, she is free.

    Diversity and inclusion is one of the biggest corporate and societal shams there is going. You can't force very different people in a room for the sake of putting very different people in a room and expect them to kumbaya their way through why everyone is different.

    People are different! Just accept that (which most people do naturally) and go about your day. No need to continually shove it in our faces.

    Will we see Trump or Moscow Mitch lead such a march?

    Wonder why we haven't heard the thoughtful reaction of our Lefty friends to the points the Berkeley professor makes?

    They’d be called racist. The republicans are not allowed to discuss race. That’s what a “conversation” is, right?

    I've lost count of how many times Trump has pointed to the black-on-black crime in Chicago. Fact is, you cannot conform an ideologue. That applies to you.

    Diversity of thought has been absent in the world of academia for some time. It was hard enough being a constitutional conservative 15 years ago when I was in school...I couldn't imagine it now. The ONLY way this guy could write this is anonymously.

    That's what you took away from this? What's the Senate going to do about it? You're a hopeless fool - forever in search of a gubbmint solution to every problem that exists in the world.

    Why would they be called racists to be in protest of dead blacks?
    Trump is a wimp and a hypocrite. That's why he wouldn't do it. I would.

    A lot of problems would be solved if we had more leaaders like this and fewer leaders like Al Sharpton.

    Jerry, Why even post this? I truly don't understand why cons are working so hard to create an alternative point of view to BLM, etc. Is there something inherently scary about BLM, are they threat to the Republican movement, are you angry with them? Are you worried that the country supports them? Why try to suppress BLM and the discussion that's happening because of it?

    I'd like to use the word "snowflake" but that would anger you. However, you cons have your panties in a bunch for no good reason. Why don't you tune out for a month and go clean your guns and pray (or whatever it is that you do)? The thing is...what's happening today does not bother me or surprise me. I have no emotion regarding the situation, outside of the crazy cons that are so angry about it. Will it affect by job? No. Does it affect my neighborhood? No. Has it affected my relationships? No. Has it affected some property in my community? Yes, but I'm not overly worried about it.

    Honestly, if Trump had come out and supported BLM, his number would be through the roof and you shitheads would be gleefully posting memes about how bad Biden is and poll results to prove your point.

    That professor has way too much time on his hands.

    No, but Trump has spoken out against such violence. The media calls him a racist for doing so.

    If Trump points out black on black crime, he is called a racist by loons on your side. If Obama would have brought attention to this, it may have had a real impact and brought deep introspection into the problems of inner city violence. Instead, he chose the easy route, scored points with the lefties...and black kids continue to die at an alarming rate. As I’ve said before....opportunity lost.

    When you mention black on black crime, the dem playbook says...(checks playbook)...”that’s a Dog whistle!!!”.

    But he talks about it all the time in Chicago or Baltimore for example. Your big brother just either pretends it didn’t happen or references the playbook as shown above.

    Why would they want to fix inner city crime? If they do they're cutting their own throats. If the inner cities improved you're going to see more cross over to the other side of the aisle completely destroying the left. They'll lose power forever .

    the problem with emphasizing things like black on black crime is because it's a form of rationalizing and deflecting. If Trump was beaten to death by a crowd of CNN reporters and, in the aftermath, of the Democrats pointed out the number of violent crimes Republicans commit... you would go WTF.

    So you are admitting Obama was fearful of addressing this....gotcha. You would do it without fear...Why don’t you run for President, or at least support a democrat that will attempt to do something about inner city violence? I’ll answer it for you...they don’t exist.

    10 unarmed black people killed last YEAR by police....WAY down from the Obama years, by the way.

    24 black people killed in ONE city...last WEEK!

    Who is rationalizing and deflecting from a much bigger problem?

    >>Jerry, Why even post this? I truly don't understand why cons are working so hard to create an alternative point of view to BLM, etc. Is there something inherently scary about BLM, are they threat to the Republican movement, are you angry with them? Are you worried that the country supports them? Why try to suppress BLM and the discussion that's happening because of it?<<

    Paoli, even for a lib, your above questions are absurd. There are other adjectives I could use, but "absurd" is the most charitable that comes to mind.

    Seriously, have you paid attention over the last couple weeks as cities were looted, buildings burned, bystanders beaten, civic order collapsed, statues torn down, lawless autonomous zones created in downtown areas, Dem-Media authorities surrendered to mobs, and madness overtook the land?

    (Granted, you might have missed these minor little stories if you get your news from the Dem-Media propaganda organs now functioning like the character Squealer the Pig in Orwell's Animal Farm.)

    All this because one career criminal was wrongfully killed by a police officer in an isolated event that was promptly transmogrified by a deluge of lies into a poisonous wholesale indictment of American society and history, ending finally in insane demands that the police themselves be abolished.

    As for "suppressing discussion," that's a joke, right? Like you don't know that it's your lib Stalinist friends in Dem-Media World who are the ones demanding adherence to a single party line and ruining the careers of anyone who asks even a meek question about any of it? Is it possible you're that clueless? (Don't answer, that's a rhetorical question.)

    I posted the anonymous letter from the professor, which you find so tiresome, because it so articulately and devastatingly exposes this entire insane charade now tearing apart the country, your professed obliviousness notwithstanding.

    It's nice that your job, neighborhood, and relationships remain unaffected as your friends rampage across the landscape. But others of us know that after the last building is burned and the last statue is torn down and the last law overturned, the Stalinist mob and the government installed by it will eventually come for us...and our children...and grandchildren. The process is already underway.

    Your post is deflecting.


    Your Trump analogy is weak. A better analogy is the 10,000 blacks beaten to death, shot or stabbed.

    Do those black lives matter?

    This is where you deflect or rationalize again.

    The deflection and lying is being done by BLM. Lunacy like defunding the police. Lies about Black people being killed by police more than white people. (About 6500 blacks per year killed by blacks. About 210 blacks killed by police in 2018 -- Washington Post statistics.) We have one murderous sociopath on tape, and it becomes justification for the Left to turn to Red Guard tactics.

    More blacks die of cancer than crime, but you also don’t see protests about cancer. The bottom line is that the black community has a deep seeded hatred for racism and inequality, particularly when it comes in the form if a white government organization. While you may think that pointing out black on black crime is helpful to the black community, it’s only useful as a means of cons rationalizing their worldview, which is not particularly amenable to tye black community
