Good post on a medical student named Kieran Bhattacharya who raised some concerns after a micro aggressions seminar and was “subjected to formal censure, repeated psychological evaluations, suspension, and eventual expulsion.”…
As I used to say, “cancel culture” was just a means and an expression of a not yet fully unconsummated will to power; now that they have the power to subject someone to psychological evaluation and expulsion for questioning their dogmas, we have moved on to the successor regime
Would be interested in @davidafrench’s thoughts on the post and the lawsuit linked within it
"not yet fully consummated"

68 percent of the US citizens or permanent residents admitted by Princeton for the class of 2025 “self-identified” as “people of color.”… Image
People who understand the social construction of race are engineering a new elite ethnogenesis: assortative mating at Ivies will create racially mixed elite overclass as remaining legacy and athlete whites mate with "POC" majority
This is "dismantling whiteness" in practice. Soon, K-12 schools will teach majority POC classes that the new locus of American national unity is the POC nation overcoming the remaining influence of Trumpian whiteness

We need actors to do word for word dramatic re-enactments of SF school board meetings
So the board audited its own restorative practices and found that they were polluted by white supremacy culture
It's funny, etc. But it's also the governing body for a major American city's public school system, educating 57,000 students. This is the Successor Regime in power.

In 2018, Kendrick Lamar threatened to pull his music off Spotify if they implemented a "Hate Content and Hateful Conduct" policy that would removed R. Kelly and others.

That put a stop to the move toward censorship for a few years.
If this becomes routine, real question about what remains. Just think of the Stones oeuvre. Brown Sugar? Midnight Rambler? Stray Cat Blues?…
YouTube announced they would not be removing Meet the Flockers a little more than a week ago. Curious to see reporting from the inside on how and why they reversed course so quickly.

My first Asian friend at school was the son of a Hong Kong ship's captain from a wealthy merchant family who would beat the hell out of his two sons and wife.

My parents got upset when he told me that physical strength was the most important thing in life.
He moved to the rural West of NJ by the PA border in third grade and became a hugely muscled redneck.
It was useful for my formative years that the toughest bully in class was an Asian kid

Elizabeth Warren was a lower-middle class white woman from a middling law school. She did what she had to do.
I'm pointing out that this cuts in both directions: 1.) she stole a position that was supposed to help native people and appropriated it for herself as a white woman, 2.) she was responding to a system that favors POC and a class of wealthy white incumbents.
Her act was far more revealing of the nature of the system than anyone quite lets on
