This  madness of racial disparity is the result of racial discrimination will only lead to  a further rapid decline of our country.    Nancy  


Disparate Impact Thinking Is Destroying Our Civilization

She earned a B.A. from Yale University, an M.A. in English from Cambridge University, and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. She writes for several newspapers and periodicals, including The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and The New Criterion, and is the author of several books, including The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe and When Race Trumps Merit: How the Pursuit of Equity Sacrifices Excellence, Destroys Beauty, and Threatens Lives.

The following is adapted from a talk delivered on February 15, 2024, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Naples, Florida.

The most consequential falsehood in American public policy today is the idea that any racial disparity in any institution is by definition the result of racial discrimination.

If a cancer research lab, for example, does not have 13 percent black oncologists—the black share of the national population—it is by definition a racist lab that discriminates against competitively qualified black oncologists; if an airline company doesn’t have 13 percent black pilots, it is by definition a racist airline company that discriminates against competitively qualified black pilots; and if a prison population contains more than 13 percent black prisoners, our law enforcement system is racist.

The claim that racial disparities are proof of racial discrimination has been percolating in academia and the media for a long time. After the George Floyd race riots of 2020, however, it was adopted by America’s most elite institutions, from big law and big business to big finance. Even museums and orchestras took up the cry.

Many thought that STEM—the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—would escape the diversity sledgehammer. They were wrong. The American Medical Association today insists that medicine is characterized by white supremacy. Nature magazine declares that science manifests one of “humankind’s worst excesses”: racism. The Smithsonian Institution announces that “emphasis on the scientific method” and an interest in “cause and effect relationships” are part of totalitarian whiteness.

As a result of this falsehood, we are eviscerating meritocratic and behavioral standards in accordance with what is known as “disparate impact analysis.”


Consider medicine. Step One of the medical licensing exam, taken during or after the second year of medical school, tests medical students’ knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. On average, black students score lower on the grading curve, making it harder for them to land their preferred residencies. Step One, in other words, has a “disparate impact” on black medical students. The solution, implemented last year, was to eliminate the Step One grading disparity by instituting a pass–fail system. Hospitals choosing residents can no longer distinguish between high and low achieving students—and that is precisely the point!

Equity Breeds Duplicity


Republican leader Mitch McConnell and his senatorial stooge James Lankford promoted a federal bill that would send billions oversees to protect the borders of other countries, while allowing an invasion into the U.S. of nearly two million illegal aliens every year. A City Journal piece details how the Biden administration has every intention of allowing illegal aliens to flood the country regardless of negotiated “bipartisan” border bills. “Why is Biden releasing millions of illegal aliens into the U.S?” Because he thinks that his notion of ‘equity’ — which he extends to non-U.S. citizens — requires it.” 

Equity has been the leading justification for radical progressive policies — from open borders to men playing in women’s sports — that undermine the American way of life. In forcing a subjective application of “fairness” to achieve equal outcomes, equity serves to redistribute permanent economic, political, and cultural power to the Left. Republicans — like McConnell, Lankford, and others — who negotiate with equity-espousing radicals should be sent packing for their duplicity.

Take recent dramatic events in North Carolina, for example.

The NC Republican Superintendent of Education Catherine Truitt heckled a speaker at a local county GOP meeting last week. The speaker, Johnston County school board member Michelle Antoine, took the stage to support Truitt’s opponent in the Republican primary. “Not true!” Truitt shouted several times as Antoine listed concerns about Truitt’s record on equity. When Antoine calmly continued, Truitt stormed out of the room.

In her attempt to shout down the speaker, Truitt exempted herself from her own September 28th, 2021 memo directing parents “to act with civility and respect for our teachers, local boards, superintendents, and school staff.” Parents must be polite and obedient when school officials mask and isolate children, but legitimate criticism of a sitting superintendent from within one’s party warrants vocal belligerence.

Antoine triggered the hostility after alerting the audience to Truitt’s prioritized programming in equity:

“One of the first things [Truitt] did when she went [into office] four years ago was create an office of equity that did not exist.”

“Not true! That’s not true! Don’t lie!” shouted Truitt from the audience.

Past emails authored by Truitt prove Antoine correct. In October 2021, Antoine emailed Truitt about the creation of an Office of Equity Affairs at the Department of  Public Instruction (DPI). Truitt replied, “My new office is called the Office of Educational Equity because we are focused on equity for ALL students,” indeed taking credit for creating a department in charge of equity for North Carolina students.


According to Truitt’s own words, the “true definition” of equity is not the socialist principle of ensuring equal outcomes, but “giving all students what they need at the time they need it.” To support her position, Truitt included a graphic from UNESCO; however, the graphic — from a progressive globalist organization — contradicts Truitt’s arbitrary characterization of equity by picturing children standing on various sized boxes to equalize their heights to reach a chalkboard. Equal heights = equal outcomes.

As if that weren’t embarrassing enough, Truitt interrupted again when Antoine discussed Truitt’s disdain for high-performing magnet schools.

“Catherine Truitt is on record on a video talking about how she wants to get rid of magnet schools, high-performing magnet schools,” reported Antoine at the GOP meeting.

    • Today’s brazen support for Hamas terrorists is an indicator that rule by terror is fast replacing the rule of law throughout the Western world.

In times past, there’d be universal outrage over assassins suddenly invading, taking hostage, and slaughtering more than 1,000 people, including grandmothers, children, and concertgoers. Back then we’d call such actions “crimes against humanity,” regardless of which side did the attacking. But today’s brazen support for Hamas terrorists is an indicator that rule by terror is fast replacing the rule of law throughout the Western world.

Since 9/11 we’ve seen a strange shift in attitudes about the barbarity of such attacks, particularly on college campuses. Rather than condemning such violence, today’s students are justifying it on campuses that include the University of VirginiaColumbia UniversityHarvard University, the University of Illinois, the University of PennsylvaniaUniversity of California at Los Angeles, and Stanford University, to name a few.

This is a common sense plan that will hopefully stop the indoctrination of our children by the Far left Marxists.  Nancy  P.S.   One of my grandsons who is 10 years old wears a cross on a chain around his neck.  He tells us that he feels there are some of his teachers who openly discriminate against him because  he is wearing a religious symbol,  Years  ago, when I was in school,  it was very common for  students to wear  crosses or St Christopher medals to school.   Discriminating against religious symbols is just another example of Cultural Marxism.  We see examples of its affect everywhere we look now – education, movies, corporations, churches, marriage, traditional family values and especially parental authority over their children’s education or gender identity.  It is well past time to bring back traditional values that were the foundation of our country.  

Trump’s Education Plan: End Fed Ed, Restore Prayer

.By Alex Newman October 18, 2023

The New Report. Originally published at

With virtually no media coverage, presidential frontrunner Donald Trump vowed to shut down the U.S. Department of Education and respect the authority of parents and states to oversee public education as part of a bold plan to bring about major changes. 

Shuttering the controversial department was just one part of a 10-point plan including restoration of prayer and patriotism unveiled by the former president last month. Taken together, Trump’s vision would rock the education establishment to the core.

“We’re going to end education coming out of Washington, DC,” explained Trump in a campaign video. “We’re going to close it up – all those buildings all over the place and you have people that in many cases hate our children. We’re going to send it all back to the states.”

Over a trillion tax dollars per year are poured into the government education system, Trump explained. And yet, instead of being at the top, “we are literally right smack — guess what — at the bottom,” the former president explained, pointing to racial, political and sexual indoctrination.  

Vowing to tackle the issue “very early” in his next term, Trump said his administration would be “sending all education and education work and needs back to the states.” “We want them to run the education of our children because they’ll do a much better job of it,” he said. 

“You can’t do worse,” the GOP contender explained about the current state of affairs. “We spend more money per pupil by three times than any other nation and yet we’re absolutely at the bottom — we’re one of the worst. You can’t do worse.”

NYC Mayor Eric Adams Says Illegal Immigration Will Destroy The City – That Was The Point Eric

By Sam Faddis   September 8, 2023

“Let me tell you something New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to — I don’t see an ending to this,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said Wednesday night in his opening remarks at a town hall-style gathering in Manhattan. “This issue will destroy New York City.”

The Mayor is right. What he does not seem to comprehend, however, is that that is the entire point of this administration’s immigration policies. It is to destroy America as we know it. This government is not run by individuals looking to serve the population of the United States and safeguard its citizens. It is, at the upper levels, run by radicals who despise this country and everything it stands for and are looking to radically restructure it along clearly Marxist lines.

This government’s official policy is not to control the border or the flow of migrants into this country. The official policy of this government is to guarantee “safe and orderly migration.”

“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to safe, orderly, and humane migration around the world, including to the United States. We commit to working with other countries to enhance cooperation to manage migration in ways that are grounded in human rights, transparency, non-discrimination, responsibility-sharing, and State sovereignty.”

The illegals from all over the planet that are destroying New York and so much of the rest of our country are not just somehow managing to find their way here. They are being moved across Central America on what amounts to a conveyor belt of camps, often linked by contract bus service, run by a wide range of non-profits. Much of the funding for all this comes from the U.S. Government.

You are paying to bring these people here. And, then you are paying to maintain them once they arrive. You are being replaced, and you are footing the bill for the entire operation.

In the last 20 years, the Left has boasted that it has gained control of most of America institutions of power and influence—the corporate boardroom, media, Silicon Valley, Wall Street, the administrative state, academia, foundations, social media, entertainment, professional sports, and Hollywood.

With such support, between 2009-17, Barack Obama was empowered to transform the Democratic Party from its middle-class roots and class concerns into the party of the bicoastal rich and subsidized poor—obsessions with big money, race, a new intolerant green religion, and dividing the country into a binary of oppressors and oppressed.

The Obamas entered the presidency spouting the usual leftwing boilerplate (“spread the wealth,” “just downright mean country,” “get in their face,” “first time I’ve been proud of my country”) as upper-middle-class, former community activists, hurt that their genius and talents had not yet been sufficiently monetized.

[PREMIERING 7/27, 7:30PM ET] Many Unaccompanied Minors Sent to Traffickers, Not Family Members: HHS Whistleblower Tara Rodas Breaks Down Red Flags

“We’re incentivizing the traffickers … The United States government is paying for the flights and the bus tickets to deliver these children to people who view children as assets,” says Health and Human Services (HHS) whistleblower Tara Rodas.

A federal employee for two decades, including 17 years in the inspector general community, she was among a number of people who answered a call from the Biden administration to help with the crisis at the border and a surge in unaccompanied minors.

“Everybody just believed we were reuniting children with families … I thought I would be able to help, you know—be that smiling, welcoming face to the children when they came. I just had no idea that the children didn’t know who they were going to,” Rodas says.

Large numbers of unaccompanied minors are being sent by HHS to sponsors that are not being properly vetted, Rodas says. In some cases, kids are being released to apartment buildings where dozens of other children have also been released. In other cases, there are sponsors using multiple addresses to sponsor children, she says. And in some cases, sponsors are submitting fake documentation—that no one is checking.

Our society’s ‘top brains’ have gone mad — and dysfunctional politics is the result

By Glenn H. Reynolds    July 24, 2023

“Suppose we got it all wrong and the real crazies are the TV people in nice suits and $300 haircuts?”

That’s an observation by Richard Fernandez on Twitter, and he has a good point.

There’s a lot of craziness in the air these days.

But for the most part it seems to be flowing from the top down, not bubbling up from the bottom.

It wasn’t farmers and factory workers who came up with the idiotic COVID responses — nor was it they who originated the more or less criminal idea of conducting “gain of function” research on making dangerous viruses more dangerous.

It wasn’t shopkeepers and bus drivers who thought the way to deal with burgeoning urban crime was to get rid of police and release criminals without bail.

It hasn’t been landscapers and auto mechanics championing the notion that a child in the single-digit age range can make a lifetime choice about his or her genitalia or maintaining that even criticizing that idea is itself a species of “violence.”

Ordinary Americans haven’t been claiming the way to promote free speech is to censor people or the way to end racism is to classify everyone by race and consequently treat them differently.
