Michael Eric Dyson Goes On
Epic Pro-Affirmative Action Rant

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/10/2012 7:12:17 PM

Cable news race commentator Michael Eric Dyson went on an extraordinary rant on MSNBC's "Now with Alex Wagner" about the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case relating to affirmative action. Dyson was responding to criticism that President Obama's road was paved for him and how whites view affirmative action. "What is the complaint here? The complaint is when we mess up and we acknowledged that we've messed up, we have to pay the price for it. America tells us as black people, 'Pull yourself up by your bootstraps.' Then acknowledge what you did.

Comments:
If a Republican said anything half as bad as this racist they would be excoriated by the media 24/7 for weeks. Nothing will ever make someone like Dyson happy. They thrive in their hate-filled world.

Dyson is pretty hard to listen to...sort of a one trick pony.

Obama was given a hand up in everything he did. I don't see what happened to him as Affirmative Action in the same way that many blacks were admitted to college or promoted simply by the system because of skin color. Obama was chosen by a select few elites to become what he has become. He didn't participate in AA programs. He was the product of specialized grooming by rich elites. It is more like a form of cronyism.

You got free labor, black intellectual power was used for your advantage.

If "others" were able to use the labor and intellectual power, how come the blacks weren't able to use it themselves?

It's not like "others" took it all and used it up ...

"Acknowledge what you did."

If people living in America today are responsible for what happened in previous centuries, is Dyson responsible for slavery in Africa today? Apparently he feels sharing a skin tone makes you libel for actions in the past, seems you would have even greater liability for actions in the present.

Affirmative action is a pig that no amount of lipstick can disguise. Americans recognize intuitively that it is inherently unjust and irrational - and that it perpetuates the very thing it aspires to combat, racism. When individuals are evaluated and judged on the color of their skin it is racism, regardless of the purported motives of the scheme. The remedy for racism is not more racism. The remedy for racism is to treat individuals AS individuals. All black people are not alike. It is an insult to them to maintain that skin color constitutes "diversity." One can be confident that when people talk about "diversity" what they actually mean is uniformity. All whites are this way, all blacks are that way, all Latinos are the other way, etc. Then there are homosexuals, Muslims, Wiccans, and all the other categories and collectivities that exist only in the mind. The "diversity" racket is collectivism through and through. It is the great scandal of America's universities that this wicked and corrupt cult had its birth and continues to draw its nourishment from the very venues in which critical and independent thinking was once upon cherished.

Africa consisted of tribes who were all black and they fought constantly. They also took captives and sold them into slavery. Slavery has no existed for many years - just one more thing for some blacks to whine about while not working, studying or thinking. There are many blacks that have been very successful, but they have to get up and get with it.

Throwing out pseudo-legit psycho-nonsense every third word, like he's justifying his position.

I am SO SICK of hearing this cr*p that I want to scream!

Dyson is, perhaps, a little more articulate than most race pimps, but the basic message is always the same: Gimme/Gimme More, Honky 'cause you owe me, simply based on the color of my skin.

Well, we've been giving you unearned, undeserved privilege and money throughout my lifetime. This sh** is about to come to a screeching halt! You want it? Earn it! You want what's mine? Better come armed...and prepared to die! I'm not giving it up anymore.

Crony capitalism is about to die under President Romney. Phony affirmative action will die, too.

Here's some valid affirmative action, suckah: In the New America (much like the Old America) everyone will be treated equally! It's character, Jack, NOT COLOR. Get that through your nappy skull!

The word diversity is interesting. The argument for diversity is that it adds to the intellectual fabric of a university campus. So affirmative action is applied to bring in diverse people.
Here is what happens in most cases. Black separate orientation for new students, black separate graduation for those AA cases, where they wear kinte cloth to remind us they are of african descent.

In the classroom, blacks tend to sit together, and do not choose to enter into the diverse discussions they are supposed to bring to the campus. And when they eat at the cafeteria, they sit together, isolated from whites. And they have their own fraternities and sororities, and in one black fraternity, as part of initiation, the bruthas actually brand with a hot iron, the arms of the inductees. But no university bans that practice as inappropriate hazing.

In 2012, in America, all people are created equal. No longer will some be considered MORE equal than others.

"Black intellectual achievement" -- forehead slap! Now I understand Einstein's hair!

Uhhh, MED? 12%. 85.

Some average IQs, data from Lynn and Vanhanen.

Hong Kong - 107
Japan - 105
France - 98
Kenya - 72
Zimbabwe - 66

Some are even lower.

Yes, really smart people come from every population [you can't keep me from Sowell and Williams, or from praising their work, for example]. But there are significant and seriuos differences in averages, and also in how many [per centage-wise] are out along the critical right tail of the distribution.

Just the messenger. Don't get ticked -- see my screen name. It's not an accident.

IQ data can be culturally distorted, and on top of that - some of the most intelligent Caucasians I know have scored at moron level on IQ tests, my super-intelligent and successful father included. Furthermore, recently a poster here identified him or herself as black, and conservative. Call me a goody goody, but I wonder how they would feel if they read the post about IQ's....

#20: Thanks for posting.

First, while "IQ" and modes of measurement are hardly physics-rigorous, there's no question there is innate intelligence; no question that individuals possess it at differing levels; that more is better than less; and that it can be tracked, or be found to track with, certain other definable factors. As can other human characteristics like height, hair color, the propensity for left-handedness, lactose tolerance, and more.

"Cultural distortion" is an old canard. But maybe those attacks had it backward? Maybe generally-higher intelligence helped produce valuable cultures?

Single-data-point anecdotes don't provide information, especially about population-wide characteristics, which are the subject of #18. Further, any number of factors can be at work in the anecdotes mentioned. But the anecdotes cited do stipulate high intelligence, thus the examples actually reference dissonance between some reported individual IQ scores and observed levels of intelligence in certain individuals.

Last, subjective emotional reactions, already stipulated to be conjectural only, can't have, and can't be permitted, standing to reject, or perhaps worse, to suppress, legitimate, independent-third-party data. Thanks.

So tell all of us uninformed idiots...Mikie, just how long must this Affirmative Action persist before everyone ever offended or agrieved is made 100% well.

I just want a date so we can stop pandering to lazy people that their days as being a bum are numbered!

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
