San Francisco Schools Renamed the Arts Department Because Acronyms Are a Symptom of White Supremacy

"We are prioritizing antiracist arts instruction in our work."

|

The San Francisco United School District isn't quite finished with its renaming binge: The district's arts department, previously titled VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts), will now be known as the SFUSD Arts Department.

This change has been made in accordance with "antiracist arts instruction," according to ABC-7 News.

"It is a very simple step we can take to just be referred to as the SFUSD Arts Department for families to better understand who we are," Sam Bass, director of the SFUSD Arts Department, explained in a memo obtained by the local news network.

Bass did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and the memo isn't widely available. But ABC-7 reported that the decision was made to eliminate VAPA because the department realized acronyms are a symptom of "white supremacy culture."

The New York Post reported that the memo cites a 1999 paper by Tema Okun. That paper does not specifically say that acronyms are racist, though it does label "worship of the written word" as an aspect of white supremacy. Other purported characteristics of white supremacy are "perfectionism," a "sense of urgency," "individualism," and "objectivity." (If this list sounds familiar, it's because the National Museum of African American Arts and Culture got in trouble last year for promoting similar nonsense.) While some acronyms may be confusing to non-native English speakers, it's quite a stretch to describe them as a function of white supremacy.

Ironically, Okun's paper lists memos as characteristic of white supremacy, so the department should probably fire Bass for racism. And at risk of stating the obvious, the new name—SFUSD Arts Department—also contains an acronym.* White supremacy is just that insidious; even an arts department dedicated to antiracism can't seem to rid itself of the stain.

This development follows the controversial decision by San Francisco's school board to formally rename 44 schools that currently honor George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and even Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D–Calif.). As Reason's Elizabeth Nolan Brown noted earlier this week, the decision to prioritize this effort at a time when schools aren't even open strikes many people as embarrassing. "[It's] a caricature of what people think liberals in San Francisco do," one parent, a self-described Elizabeth Warren Democrat, told The New York Times. 

San Francisco school officials sure seem to enjoy humiliation. When asked about the significant learning losses among students of color who have now been kept at home for nearly a year, School Board President Gabriela Lopez essentially shrugged.

"They're just having different learning experiences than the ones we currently measure, and the loss is a comparison to a time when we were in a different space," she told the San Francisco Chronicle.

The arts department's badly explained name change isn't nearly as consequential, but it's still emblematic of a school district caught in the throes of far-left orthodoxy. If VAPA was a confusing name, then the district was perfectly justified in changing it. There's no need to cloak this mundane and reasonable decision in social justice gobbledygook.

In any case, San Francisco students won't be doing any art—antiracist or otherwise—until officials bow to the scientific consensus and actually reopen the schools.

*Update: While VAPA is an acronym, SFUSD is an initialism. Whether initialisms count as acronyms is a hotly debated topic.

The new administration nixes a change that would have allowed more physicians to prescribe buprenorphine.The Trump Administration didn’t attempt either approach to justify it’s guidelines, but argued HHS has the authority to “eliminate the requirement QCym that physicians with a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) registration number apply for a separate waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder treatment,” which would effectively cover almost all practicing physicians in the U.S..……..MORE READ

    5. I know some people who live there. One is a republican who is perennially running for office and getting single digit percentages. The GOP is so small it went wingnut years ago. Crazy wingnut. Crazy screaming at the top of their lungs wingnut. Parties with 90% membership end up nuts, ditto for parties with 9% membership. Hell, even the Berkeley Republicans across the bay have better numbers and attitudes. My friend has slowly been deranged by that local party. But he lives there because that’s his home and the business he owns is there.

      Another friend is young and he loves the club scene. He also lives in a loft and commutes OUT of the city for a job that will pay for the loft. Frankly, I think he should move for simple economic reasons. Like rents a 1/20 the cost.

      And another friend is a famous/infamous libertarian activist who lives there because that’s where his work is. You all know him, but I won’t name drop.

      The thing is people usually don’t have much of a choice to get up and move away just because they don’t like the prevailing politics of a city. The opportunity to just get up and leave isn’t always available. Worse if one is married, because then both people have to feel the same way at the same time and have the same opportunity pop up at the same time. It’s NOT like just changing one’s haircut.

      I also know people who moved out of the state for these reasons. It does happen. But not everyone can do it. Those I know who did were small business owners with the sort of business they could just move without a massive destruction of their income. Or they lost their job and found another outside of the state.

      I personally will never go to San Francisco to visit. I used to a lot. But the literal shitting in the streets stopped me unless it’s important. I can’t stand the smell in certain areas. Last time I was there three years ago for a conference.

      I suspect a revolt is coming to the city. NOT a conservative revolt. But perhaps a neo-liberal revolt against the excess of wokism. The excesses will be there, but they will be out of power. We’re already seeing part of a revolt against the school name changes.

      SF will never be conservative. Even in the heyday of conservative California a century ago it was a bastion of weirdness. But no reason it has to be batshit crazy wokist.

      1. I would move their just for the shit on the street and junkies sleeping in the shit on the streets. But the lack of acronyms? That BTSOUTAME.

      2. I’ve moved states twice. It really wasn’t that hard. And I’m married.

      3. Another friend is young and he loves the club scene

        Lol.

      4. Out of all the people you know in San Francisco not one is a liberal nutjob. Does anyone there suspect voter fraud?

      5. I grew up in SF, lived there from 1978 to 1991 then went to college in Arizona, my Mom still lives there and many friends.

        Most the people who stay there inherited houses and business, otherwise its impossible to break into the city unless you do so by making massive amount in silicon valley. SF is nothing at all like the City I remember roaming about as a free range kid back in the day, its hard to even go back and see it now, so I don’t for the most part.

        The best thing for the city would be for the entire tech culture to die or move away or something. The techies don’t fit in with the old SF vibe, despite believing that they do. They totally ruin everything they come in contact with and I notice the minute they start interacting with a neighborhood, an idea or a culture that it immediately splits into two divisive parts with an impenetrable wall inbetween.

        They will often claim they are ‘interacting’ with this idea or culture, but its more like they have created a Zoo where they stand safely back and point and observe. They seem to be constantly living in fear that their ideas or selves might be challenged or harmed. They tend to create inhuman and alienating environments.

  3. “Ironically, Okun’s paper lists memos as characteristic of white supremacy …”

    Written language is racist.

    1. Fuck you, oral language discriminates against the deaf hearing impaired sensorily-gifted and we ain’t having that.

    2. You unclean Goyim can’t handle the Torah, literally or figuratively.

      1. Oral prophetic tradition is racist and species-ist! Go back to the grunts and growls of our primate predecessors!

        1. we are already ruled by the grunters and growlers. We call them democrats

  4. “‘This change has been made in accordance with “antiracist arts instruction,”‘

    Translation: all the managers wanted to order new letterhead and stationary. Especially now that the schools are closed.

  5. Pay them no attention.

    1. Yes. Just ignore the slow walk of progressive Marxists through the cultural, educational, governmental, and business institutions of our country. That has worked well for the last 60 years!

      1. People need to stand! Quit being keyboard ninjas and defend your country. Get out and make a stand. Be heard.

  6. NOW is a good time to abolish government schools.

    1. it’s always a good time for that.

  7. “Worship of the written word” is supposedly an indicator of white supremacy.

    You cannot caricature this ideology, it has already staked out the most ridiculous positions.

    1. The only upside to all of the Left’s inanity is the fact that if shit really hits the fan, and a hot civil war erupts, an army of intellectually and emotionally stunted retards can be routed with paintball guns and racist memes.

      1. I think people underestimate how vicious the Woke can be.
        Sure they’re flabby and uncoordinated, but they’re also heavily indoctrinated. They believe no matter what they do, no matter how cruel and inhuman they are, it’s okay because they’re on the right side of history.

        1. I agree, to an extent.

          However, I think the Rittenhouse situation demonstrated that, in spite of their viciousness, Leftists are also utterly and thoroughly delusional. They really believe they are fucking around with people that have a sense of humor about this kind of shit, people that will just roll over at the slightest sign of a threat or adversity.

          They really do not understand that they are fucking with people that are champing at the bit for any excuse to blow their fucking heads off. They really do believe they are invincible because federal officers and local police in their lefty-liberal-shitbag jurisdiction of choice have been instructed to more or less stand down and put up with their shit.

          That sense of invincibility is what is going to get them killed, more than anything else.

          1. When are the decent, sensible going to get their fill and put these commies back in proper check?

      2. Truer words have never been spoken. It should be mercifully quick. The mob of woke millennials will be crushed like a bug.

    2. They’ve made it so that Poe’s law simply cannot be evaluated. Write something that is so far gone that it simply HAS to be extreme parody, and nope! That’s a conservative restatement of the actual crazy talk.

    3. EISTAU is the coolest acronym. It’s also the rallying cry of this retarded ideology.

  8. “And at risk of stating the obvious, the new name—SFUSD Arts Department—contains an acronym just as surely as the old one did.”

    SFUSD is more of an initialism than an acronym (although VAPA may also have been used as an initialism as well, this seems unlikely)

    1. Also, the first three letters are commonly used for Shut the Fuck Up.
      Add Student Dissident and we have the perfect acronym for what they really want.

      1. no, SD is “sit down”.

    2. Yes, acronyms can be pronounced as a word. SFUSD is indeed an initialism. Please be aware that I’ve reported you for reeducation.

        1. Very suffused

      1. So an acronym is simply an easier to use initialism.

    3. Making distinctions between acronyms and initialisms is itself a marker of White Supremacy.

      1. Perfectionism…

    4. How about this?
      Visual And Performing Identity-based Drawing?
      VAPID

      1. The whole argument about is it or is it not an acronym is just a plot so you will forget Epstein did not kill himself.

        1. true he was suicided

          1. lets hope all the frisco commissars piss off hillary

    5. SFUSD is more of an initialism than an acronym

      It’s both.

      “Definition of acronym
      : a word (such as NATO, radar, or laser) formed from the initial letter or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term
      also : an abbreviation (such as FBI) formed from initial letters”

      1. I thought they were telling South Dakota or San Diego to keep quiet.

    6. Initialisms are a type of acronym, rather than the other way around.

      While many people only consider it a ‘true’ acronym if it can be pronounced like a word ‘LASER’, ‘CARES Act’ etc. – that has not historically been the case, and the etymology of the word bears that out.

    7. And these antiracists ain’t got the sense to see it.

    8. Yes, that was my second thought. The first was what a bunch of fucking idiots!

      The problem is that Facebook is full of them. My problem is that I am forced to go to FB because I belong to associations who mostly communicate through it.

      1. The problem is that Facebook is full of them.

        The problem is that the public education system is full of them.

    9. Nonsense. Initialisms are acronyms, they just can’t be pronounced.

      An acronym is any shortening that takes the first letters of the words being shortened. An initialism is simply an acronym where you say each letter individually. (OED supports this position). And this is a sensible position to make, because Acronym applies to the construction, not the pronunciation. Further, the etymology is literally from greek akron, ‘tip, end’, + onym ‘name’ – ie, Tip-Name. There’s nothing exclusive to pronouncing it as a word here, in fact, it has nothing to do with *speaking* it at all. It’s about the construction of the abbreviation, not how you say it afterwards.

      Note: a given acronym can be an initialism or not, depending on use? Take “LOL”. In the unfortunate case you hear someone say this in speech (and i’m sorry), you might hear “El-Oh-El” (initialism), or you might hear “Loll” – it’s an acronym regardless, but whether its an initialism depends on how its said. (Similarly, I’ve had the unfortunate experience of hearing ‘rofl’ in speech, as both “roffle” and “Ar-Oh-Ef-El”. I work with high schoolers, what can i say?)

      And what do you do with JPEG, IUPAC, or CDROM if you think acronyms and initialisms are disjoint things? These are clearly acronyms which are partially initialized.

      Any position which says initialisms aren’t acronyms is clearly wrong as a matter of etymology, history, and usage.

  9. You chose to live in California. At some point the man living in the cesspit needs to stop complaining about the smell and move.

    1. let us not confuse California with the bay area and los angeles. they are NOT the same state.

      1. True, but the rest of Cali hasn’t done anything about them either. It is not enough to simply not BE the bay area; you must be actively ANTI-bay area.

  10. Bernie Sander’s outfit is now White Privelege:
    https://news.yahoo.com/did-bernie-sanders-inauguration-outfit-epitomize-white-privilege-a-san-francisco-teacher-thinks-so-204425621.html

    “What did they see? They saw a white man in a puffy jacket and huge mittens, distant not only in his social distancing, but in his demeanor and attire,” Seyer-Ochi wrote, adding, “What did I see? What did I think my students should see? A wealthy, incredibly well-educated and -privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.
    “I don’t know many poor, or working class, or female, or struggling-to-be-taken-seriously folk who would show up at the inauguration of our 46th president dressed like Bernie.”
    Prior to the inauguration, Seyer-Ochi had also had her students analyze images from the Jan. 6 riot by supporters of former President Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol.
    “This,” she told her students about the images from that day, “is white supremacy, this is white privilege. It can be hard to pinpoint, but when we see, it, we know it.”

    When we want to see it, we do.

    1. On a lighter note, Bernie’s home state might have a new future.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKcUOUYzDXA

    2. His jacket looks pretty similar to what the person to his right is wearing. As for the mittens, they are pretty much what I would expect anyone from Vermont to be wearing in January

      1. Yeah and how many black people live in Vermont? White privilege.

        See, it’s just that easy!

    3. The meme turned into a fundraising bonanza for nonprofits and a symbol of a new administration getting down to business, as a contrast to the carefully curated image cultivated by its predecessor.

      I can think of lots of things to call the Trump administration, but carefully curated is not one of them.

      1. Maybe “carefully curated” means the opposite in Wokianity?

    4. “It can be hard to pinpoint, but when we see, it, we know it.”

      That used to be the ‘legal’ definition of porno back in the olden days. Nothing like an amorphous, fuzzy and totally indefinable definition to slay whitey.

    5. It would be so nice if these white progressives that hate their skin color so much would just jump off a bridge and save everyone, including themselves, the perpetual misery.

      1. Yeah, but the guy who has to fetch their corpse is probably a minority. Think of the oppression!

    6. “This,” she told her students about the images from that day, “is white supremacy, this is white privilege. It can be hard to pinpoint, but when we see, it, we know it.”

      And the other side is the one fomenting insurrection?

    7. Bernie’s get-up isn’t “White Supremacist,” it’s just old fart frumpy! Me, if I wear gloves, it’s “Stubborn About Quality” Wells Lamont Gloves.

      1. Oh, and a Navy Pee Coat or an Australian Outback Riding Jacket are choice for hard winters too!

        1. love me some navy pea coat.

  11. Jesus, are the darkies trying to prove that the Klan is right about their mental deficiencies?

  12. And at risk of stating the obvious, the new name—SFUSD Arts Department—contains an acronym just as surely as the old one did.

    At the risk of stating the obvious … no. SFUSD is an abbreviation, not an acronym.

    1. Maybe it’s pronounced ‘sphuzzed’.

      1. Rhymes with “fused”. Suffused.

    2. At the risk of stating the obvious … no. SFUSD is an abbreviation, not an acronym.

      What you risked there was not stating the obvious, but demonstrating that you have no idea what the words “abbreviation” and “acronym” mean.

      1. I think he’s right; an acronym is pronounced as it’s own word.

        1. True. I overlooked that. The Navy is full of Acronyms. OPNAVINST, BUPERS, NAVEDTRA…

        2. Acronym literally means ‘tip-name’. It’s about the construction, not the pronunciation. First letter of each word? Acronym. Pronunciation doesn’t come into it.

          (An initialism is an acronym where you pronounce each letter separately. It’s not a separate thing).

        1. From your link:

          “The broader sense of acronym inclusive of terms pronounced as the individual letters (such as “TNT”) is sometimes criticized, but it is the term’s original meaning and is in common use.

          1. Yeah maybe, but anyone who claims that abbreviated initials are actually an acronym doesn’t know the first thing about libertarianism and probably hates the very idea of freedom. Might as well practice linguistic heresy with the reincarnated souls of Stalin and Hitler.

            1. calm down, hugh

      2. SFUSD is An initialism

        1. And an abomination.

        2. And all initialisms are acronyms.

  13. Start now earning cash every month online from home. Getting paid more than $15k by doing an easy job online. I have made $19715 in last 4 weeks from this job. Easy to join and earning from this are just awesome. Join this right now by follow instructions here… Read More.

  14. This is the result of Leftist lunacy dominating college campuses for the last 40 years. Nice job libs. We are a nation of degreed imbeciles thanks to damage the Left has done to our entire education system, from top to bottom. These Leftist idiots run the schools and indoctrinate, er, teach the students. Screwed we are.

    1. Anyone remember the scene in searching for Bobby fisher where the kid asks about his ranking and the grand Master teaching him says oh well what do you want me to write in? And starts putting higher and higher numbers and handing him more certificates? This is essentially what modern collages are like

      1. Not far from the truth. The mob is breathtakingly ill educated.

    2. Gramski’s long March through the institutions has worked like a charm. McCarthy was right about Communist-infiltrated Hollywood. Look where the master mouthpiece is! Hollywood!

  15. And at risk of stating the obvious, the new name—SFUSD Arts Department—contains an acronym just as surely as the old one did.

    Nothing to see here, move along. This has been going on for half a century.
    The seventies feminists were rabid about renaming everything that ended in a three letter suffix indication a male (MAN) with a three letter suffix indicating a male (SON)
    Chairman = Chairperson. Both end in a male designator, but there was no end of governmental spending to make these changes.

      1. That’s “awomyn”, thank you very much!

    1. so then we are using Manson now? can we call our kid charlie

  16. Why bother with SFUSD just use Arts Department. its government and they ain’t governing if they ain’t needlessly changing names to signal their usefulness. Never mind everything printed with the old words now have to be thrown out at great and wasteful cost. Also if you accidently make a request using the old paper work you will have to refile and wait another 3 months before your request is even looked at.

  17. Acronyms Are a Symptom of White Supremacy

    BLM agrees

    1. *Laughs in NAACP*

    2. Isn’t BLM an anachronism?

      And if not, is acronym case sensitive or can we use them willy and nilly. That is UC and LC contextually and convolvingly?

      1. BLM is a lie. Black lives never matter to black killers, rapists, gang bangers, or black women murdering their own unborn children.

  18. While San Francisco “educators” are performing the essential work of calling everything racist, some scientists have developed a form of super-spinach which is smarter than the average school administrator:

    “Through nanotechnology, engineers at MIT in the US have transformed spinach into sensors capable of detecting explosive materials. These plants are then able to wirelessly relay this information back to the scientists.

    “When the spinach roots detect the presence of nitroaromatics in groundwater, a compound often found in explosives like landmines, the carbon nanotubes within the plant leaves emit a signal. This signal is then read by an infrared camera, sending an email alert to the scientists.

    “This experiment is part of a wider field of research which involves engineering electronic components and systems into plants. The technology is known as “plant nanobionics”, and is effectively the process of giving plants new abilities.”

    https://www.euronews.com/living/2021/02/01/scientists-have-taught-spinach-to-send-emails-and-it-could-warn-us-about-climate-change

    1. Feed me Seymour!

    2. “I’m strong to da finish-k,
      ’cause I list-kins to me spinach-k!
      I’m Popeye the Sailor Man! *TOOT! TOOT!!*

      1. Ha!

  19. And yet if people ay niggers are lazy (opposite of urgent) mindlessly hive like (anti individual) don’t care about their job (anti perfectionist), and unthinking (anti objective) those people would be called the racist

    1. The racism of low expectations is alive and well in progtard land.

  20. Meanwhile a 19 year old black man murders an 84 year old Thai man which is caught on camera.

    1. Racist!

      1. What is racist about truth?

  21. Is there anything that is not racist?

    1. Your comment might not be overtly racist, but it’s definitely problematic.

    2. That you dared to ask this question proves you’re a racist!

  22. I can’t even wrap my head around how acronym’s could be racist. I mean, the only thing that makes sense is that black people can’t understand English but experience tells me they absolutely can.


    …it does label “worship of the written word” as an aspect of white supremacy. Other purported characteristics of white supremacy are “perfectionism,” a “sense of urgency,” “individualism,” and “objectivity.”

    Oh, I think I see a problem here. Notably, if a black person educates themselves they are now a racist. Is this some sort of ploy by ‘anti-racists’ to make black people dumber so they can’t see they’re on a plantation?

    Yikes. I’ve known actual southern white racists that didn’t come close to how nasty this view of the black population is.

    That’s probably bad, right? I often say the two biggest reasons for racism are not enough experience with a demographic, or too much experience with a demographic. This is, curiously enough, indicative of ‘not enough experience’ category.


    1. [It’s] a caricature of what people think liberals in San Francisco do,” one parent, a self-described Elizabeth Warren Democrat, told The New York Times.

      In fact, it’s quite literally what ‘liberals’ in San Francisco do making it interesting that this individual apparently thinks it’s just a caricature.

      1. My thought exactly – “No – this is not a caricature – it’s what they are literally doing right now.

    2. Everything Is So Terrible And Unfair.

      And racist.

  23. Rap group NWA hardest hit.

    1. Niggaz without Acronyms

      1. lmao

      2. Whoa.

      3. the wu-tang clan is on line two, sir.

  24. One would assume they are oblivious to the national joke this has become.

    1. “They laughed at the suffragists, they laughed at Edison…”

      Of course, they also laughed when Bozo the Clown got hit in the face with a pie.

      1. Oops, never mind Edison, they cancelled him for experimenting on animals.

        1. Stampy had it comming

          1. Stampy rocked!

        2. and for collaborating with henry ford and mr. firestone.

        3. Pinky and the Brain hardest hit.

  25. I can’t help but think that the uptick in shootings and other violent crime is the result of youths out of school and turning to gangs to fill their free time. I haven’t seen anyone offer this as an hypothesis. I’ve seen lots offer the lockdowns as the cause but not the gang tie in.

    1. I think it probably has something to do with an underlying resource war. With borders disrupted, the global drug supply chain must be restricted to some degree right at a point where demand is soaring.

    2. This is being talked about in Chicago.

  26. There’s no need to cloak this mundane and reasonable decision in social justice gobbledygook.

    But it’s not reasonable or mundane or being cloaked, it is gobbledygook.

  27. “It is a very simple step we can take to just be referred to as the SFUSD Arts Department for families to better understand who we are,” Sam Bass, director of the SFUSD Arts Department, explained in a memo obtained by the local news network… Read More.

  28. This change has been made in accordance with “antiracist arts instruction,”

    Bob Ross appropriated the afro, so he’s out.

    1. But it was a happy accident.

      1. *golf clap*

  29. SFUSD isn’t an acronym, read a fucking book Robby

    1. SFUSD isn’t an acronym, read a fucking book Robby

      You first. For instance, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, which says…

      “Definition of acronym
      : a word (such as NATO, radar, or laser) formed from the initial letter or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term
      also : an abbreviation (such as FBI) formed from initial letters : INITIALISM”

      So SFUSD is an initialism, which is a specific type of acronym, and also a type of abbreviation.

      1. Acronyms and initialisms are distinct types of abbreviations.

        BTW, using Merriam-Webster as a source on language use is like asking a high-school physics student to describe how a nuclear reactor works.

        1. They are not distinct. Being an acronym has nothing to do with pronounce-ability. It’s literally ‘tip-name’ etymologically – construction by first letters. Initialisms are a specific type of acronym.

          Some acronyms can be initialisms depending on how they’re said. ‘LOL’ springs to mind, which i have had the unfortunate experience of having heard as ‘loll’ and ‘el-oh-el’. In the latter case it was an initialism, in the former case it wasn’t, but it was an acronym regardless.

          Also, what would you do with JPEG, IUPAC, or CDROM?

      2. Wait does pointing out that SFUSD is an inialism mean that we are objective perfectionists, and therefor white supremacists? Am I doing it right?

        1. Yes, pedantry is a sign of white supremacy.

    2. “Suffused”

      There. I acronymed it for you.

      1. Really, can you even say you grok acronyms, if you haven’t read through a bunch of military contract proposals?

        1. The military can’t function without acronyms. We used them for everything. And made up more. FUBAR, SNAFU, POG, REMF etc…

  30. The New York Post reported that the memo cites a 1999 paper by Tema Okun.

    Shows you how deep Peggy McIntosh’s poisonous essay on “white privilege” had infected academia by this time.

  31. For all their high and mighty talk, they’re the ones labelling awesome things as “white supremacy.” Who’s the real “white supremist”, huh?

  32. VAPA because the department realized acronyms are a symptom of “white supremacy culture.”

    It’s just college kids being college kids. They’ll abandon all this craziness once they graduate and get out into the real world.

    1. Well, ADD/ADHD is just grade school kids being grade school kids. So are you suggesting that we put SJWs on Ritalin? /sarc

      1. No the SJWs should be on cyonide pills

    2. Funny. I guess you haven’t deal with the new HR people lately.

    3. These “college kids being college kids” are now members of U.S. Congress, running the show at major media outlets and tech companies, developing k-12 curricula, etc.

  33. contains an acronym just as surely as the old one did.

    To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself—that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word—doublethink—involved the use of doublethink

    1. It’s very demoralizing to society to tell and repeat lies it knows to be lies.

    2. But enough about chemjeff ….

  34. Today in libertarian news and commentary.

    Is AOC the most dangerous politician in America?
    Since the Capitol riot she has been whipping up a culture of fear that could have dire consequences for liberty.

    Here’s what’s funny about The Squad, the toytown radicals in the Democratic Party who titillate the Twitterati but piss off mostly everyone else. These are the kind of people who would have been Bush-bashers back in the 2000s, shaking their heads at the post-9/11 ‘culture of fear’ and warning against the rash introduction of illiberal anti-terror laws. And yet today these people are agitating for a new war on terror, for an all-out crusade against ‘domestic terrorism’, for an unforgiving, even McCarthyite offensive against an enemy that is apparently so terrifying, so evil, that even America’s constitutional norms must be ripped up in the battle against it.

    Consider Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, every leftie’s favourite congresswoman. She’s currently making George W Bush look like a rank amateur when it comes to instilling the fear of god into the populace. The post-9/11 tub-thumpers have nothing on AOC and her singular commitment to stirring up national dread and panic in response to an alleged terror threat. Ever since the riot at the Capitol on 6 January, AOC has been at the forefront of insisting that the US faces a new terror threat and that extraordinary measures must be taken to tackle it. She is engaging in a kind of political hysteria, with potentially dire consequences for reason and liberty.

    1. That story used an acronym to denote Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Racist and Misogynist!

    2. It’s always weird to read a sane reporter. I’ve gotten so used to reporters trying to stay hip on Twitter. When I hear someone just bluntly pointing out the truth i end up doing a double take.

      1. Say what you will about the British, their contrarian press is doing it better these days.

        1. The brits are wankers.

          There. Said it.

  35. WTF?

    So are LGBTQ people, regardless of their heritage, “White Supremacist” if they use the acronym LGBTQ?

    Were Singer Aretha Franklin and Florida Evans on the TV show Good Times doubly “White Supremacist” when they used the acronym TCB (for “Taking Care of Business?”) After all, isn’t TCB showing initiative and even entrepreneurship?

    Actually, this is really nothing new. Roger Kimball in his 1990 bookTenured Radicals pointed out an instance where some muckety-muck in academia has proclaimed that Individualism is racist.

    I guess the poison has acted like Arsenic and Lead and settled into the bones of San Francisco’s body politic.

    1. Oops. Forgot to close an italics tag. HTML is racist!

    2. So are LGBTQ people, regardless of their heritage, “White Supremacist” if they use the acronym LGBTQ?

      Hey everyone, someone is doing that TERF feminist thing by looking past the cultural taillights in front of them, and realizing where the road actually leads.

      To answer your question: Yes. What’s acceptable at 9am will get you in front of a firing squad by 5pm.

  36. “Other purported characteristics of white supremacy are “perfectionism,” a “sense of urgency,” “individualism,” and “objectivity.”

    Now tell me how you feel about this when you’re in need of heart surgery.

    Seriously, let the SF, Chicago, and similar school systems fully descend into the rot they are so adamantly heading toward. Just set back and watch it happen.

    1. The will eagerly preside over the disintegration of their own cities. But, they will never blame themselves. They will blame you. Masochists also tend to be sadists.

      But, I agree. Sit back and enjoy the show, through a rifle scope.

      1. “…through a rifle scope.”

        It will surely be a target rich environment. Only way to stop the spread of something is to contain it.

        1. Hoof and mouth solution?

    2. It is tempting to kick back and watch, but the lab rats of these social experiments tend to escape and spread their contagion.

      The best prescription is social distancing from SJWs, wear a mask proclaiming the virtues of Reason, Individualism, and Freedom, and wash your hands of Gummint Skoolz and their proponents.

      1. “lab rats of these social experiments tend to escape and spread their contagion.”
        just ask Boise,Denver,Austin, Santa Fe, Phoenix

    3. “perfectionism”, “hard working”, “views time as a commodity”, “action oriented”.
      Guilty as charged. I plan to do well at my next performance review where I will “be polite”, “plan for the future” and seek “progress” in my “career”.

      God I love Whiteness.
      Here’s the secret. One does not need light colored skin. The most successful people in business, science, medicine, and engineering are deeply pigmented, and while many speak with an accent, they speak the “King’s english”, which is to say, they are capable communicators. They know through “objective rational linear thinking”, what behaviors are most productive for personal, family, and community gain.

      It’s fucking why White culture dominates.

      Every country that has tried it has flourished. Japan, Korea, Singapore, Israel, Taiwan all became White in their economic sphere, and they all benefited greatly. It is why the Chinese will soon be having our lunch as they shift their business and cultural practices.

  37. Perhaps part of the M. O. here is to provoke sputtering objections from white people, thus confirming white fragility.

    1. The crazier they get, the more publicity they get, the more criticism from “right-wing reactionaries,” and that shows they’re doing something right and they simply need to double down.

      Or if there *isn’t* a reaction, that just shows they’re being mainstream and suggesting things nobody could object to. So they win that way, as well.

      Though the ideal result would be to be able to mobilize against an enemy, like “reactionaries” who oppose Social Justice.

      1. Or, you can raise a hand and ask questions about the necessity of the measure, peppering your question with to-be-sures and clear denunciations of White Supremacy.

        1. Like Joanna Cherry, whom you introduce to us below?

      2. I grew up in the deep South of the Sixties. I recall “whites only” signs and separate seating in movie theaters.

        I used to thing things had gotten better; at first via law, but then I thought maybe people had changed, not entirely but at least they behaved better toward one another.

        But now I don’t know; if anything, antics like this seem to be promoting racism and factionalism, even fomenting hatred. I thought the Klan was essentially dead, but in anything promotes such organizations and hatred, it will be this idiocy.

  38. Today in libertarian news and commentary:

    Joanna Cherry’s crime? Defending women’s rights
    The SNP’s attack on gender-critical thinking shows how intolerant the party has become.

    We hear so much about the importance of representation and diversity nowadays. ‘You have to see it to be it’, feminists never tire of telling us. But not, it seems, if you’re a woman, a lesbian, and have spent decades arguing for equal rights. As the SNP’s Joanna Cherry discovered yesterday, inclusivity counts for nothing if you hold the wrong views on gender identity.

    Political parties frequently reshuffle, sack and replace members of their frontbench team. Usually, certain rituals are followed. Perhaps the party leader might issue a statement of regret, however qualified. Or the individual resigns before he is pushed, expressing a wish to spend more time with his family. Not in the case of Cherry. After the QC, shadow spokesperson on justice and home affairs, and member of the SNP’s National Executive Committee was dumped by her party yesterday, it was left to Cherry herself to break the news.

    1. Stay at home safe and sound avoiding corona virus but do not sit idol work online and make full use of this hostage period and raise extra money to over come daily financial difficulties.. For more detail

    2. Lesbian, feminist…old hat; I recall a skit with John Belushi and Garret Morris on the OLD SNL [when it used to be funny, a very long time ago]; Morris [a journalist] was interviewing Belushi [an obvious first gen immigrant]; the Belushi character referred to himself as the “new niggy” and to Morris as the “old niggy,” implying that he was the new oppressed person on the block and entitled to all the rights and considerations of being the victim du jour. Joanna Cherry is clearly the “old niggy” here and just needs to make way for the current trend, over which politicians will salivate in order to make points with the “savvy” crowd.

      It is all going to end rather badly, I think.

    3. I guess that until they legalize pedophilia then perversion doesn’t get equal rights.

  39. Today in libertarian news and commentary.

    (VIDEO)

    ‘Why is the left cheering corporate censorship?’
    spiked’s Tom Slater joined Meghan Murphy on her podcast, The Same Drugs, to discuss Big Tech, free speech and wokeness.

  40. Anything western European, language etc, must at this point he erased because it is all racist. So any Africans or Hispanics who speak any latin languages must stop also.

    1. I don’t know what I’ll do as my ancestry is completely western European. English is racist, and don’t even get me started on Norwegian, Danish and German. Do you think I could use Gaelic as my Scots-Irish ancestors where oppressed or do they not have enough oppression points? Or my Saamish ancestors?

      1. There’s nothing for you to do. Like a mixed race child in Apartheid South Africa, you are simply illegal.

        1. “There’s nothing for you to do.”

          With heritage like that he could always take up drinking.

          1. Way ahead of you on that front.

  41. How wonderful for all its citizens that the biggest problem that San Francisco now has is racist letters. I guess all the human shit and needles have been cleaned up from its streets.

  42. If I were a person of color, I’d take serious umbrage at the notion I have to be a collectivist because individualism is racist.

    1. If you did the you wod not be a person of color – you would be multiracially white

  43. Just make everyone spell out every damned city department and program. Expecting all citizens to be able to read write and spell English correctly can’t be racist. Oh, and FUSF!

  44. Again, antagonizing and provoking the non-woke is precisely the point of these exercises – whether changing 44 school names or saying one acronym is racist and another isn’t:

    “…Liberal politics feature a continual dynamism, a putatively “creative destruction” of tradition, that constantly undermines and disrupts pre-existing practices among the populace; under liberalism, dynamic change is itself the steady state. Sacramental liberalism qua religion requires not merely an overcoming of the darkness of pre-rational tradition, but an explicit, public, visible overcoming. The community of liberals must see that the forces of reaction have been vanquished, see that the vanquished see that, and so forth. The triumph of liberty and the defeat of liberty’s foes must be common knowledge.

    “…it would be inconsistent with the whole essence and point of sacramental liberalism…to respect even the names and forms of tradition, let alone its substantive practices….[I]t remains true that the conflict is structural and chronic, not merely a contingent prudential mistake made by the rulers of liberal polities that could somehow be corrected with better advice, or an infusion of “reciprocity” between rulers and ruled.”

    https://churchlifejournal.nd.edu/articles/all-human-conflict-is-ultimately-theological/

  45. “That paper … does label ‘worship of the written word’ as an aspect of white supremacy.”

    Fredrick Douglass, W.E.B. DuBois, Ralph Ellison, Malcolm X, even Kareem Abdul Jabbar – all White Supremacists?! Who knew??

    1. Not a woman or an LGBTQ on that list. Strictly yesterday’s news.

      1. Are you suggesting that worship of the Written word is an artifact of male patriarchal homophobia? There may be a place on a college faculty for you!

    2. ‘Multiracial’ white supremicists.

      1. How long before the Spanish are brought into this fold. The Spanish conquerors did run roughshod over most of South and Central America wiping out tribes and mixing their blood with the natives until it was no longer native.
        AOC better check her Latinx privilege.

        1. Not too long.

          The Asians are valid targets now – too successful.

          Teh Gayz are valid targets now – too successful.

          Latinos are making it in this country too. Expect them to be next.

          There always has to be someone to tear down lest they turn and look at you.

          1. Not to mention importing ten times the number of slave that The U.S. did. And working a higher percentage to death.

  46. “Other purported characteristics of white supremacy are … ‘objectivity.’ ”

    Oh! So it necessarily follows that anyone who attacks Donald Trump for not have “objective” proof that the election was stolen is practicing White Supremacy, right? Because demanding objective proof is an obvious act of racism, right?

  47. So, I think they are right in that it’s gatekeeping. They develop a bunch of jargon and acronyms that makes it harder for “new” people to engage.

    They just call it white supremacy because it lets them blame someone else.

  48. What is the half-life of this Woke trend do you think? The next generation will be the “cool” kids, and will have their own brand of cool, which will replace this brand of cool.

    I have faith in the next generation, my children are among them. They can smell bullshit when they see it.

    And this is the highest-grade bullshit the world has probably ever seen.

    1. I have faith in the next generation, my children are among them. They can smell bullshit when they see it.

      The same thing was said about Gen-X, and they’re the ones who are primarily enabling all of this shit now, because they are at the stage of life where they are running a lot of these institutions and bureaucracies.

      1. In fairness to our generation, Boomers aren’t vacating positions of power, and we’re outnumbered by Millennials.

        1. The Millennials, of course, having been that generation raised by late-stage Boomers who waited to have kids until they could make them perfect. I think of Gen Xers as the generation of Sexual Revolution Accidents, who are a bit more cynical about some of these utopian narratives.

          1. Gen X has to atone for growing up on Michael Jackson and the Cosby show. Ewww.

            We should’ve stopped that.

    2. What is the half-life of this Woke trend do you think? The next generation will be the “cool” kids, and will have their own brand of cool, which will replace this brand of cool.

      I personally think we’ll all be pleasantly surprised by how quickly and thoroughly this gets unpopular once people get more courage to stand up to it (which I’m already seeing happening).

      We’re already to the point where the people who cautiously make fun of this stuff get more laughs than they expected to, and more and more people are comfortable saying the modern-day equivalent of “the Emperor has no clothes,” which is “I am not a racist.”

      My 13-year-old daughter is already getting pretty cynical about this stuff, and I see it in her classmates, as well. The little boys get lots of joy making the teachers suspect that they’re secret nazis, and secretly getting away with doing anti-PC things just to be anti-PC.

      I don’t think we’re far from the Woke Scold becoming a stock satirical figure in comedies, the way the Humorless Activist was in the ’80s.

  49. This type of stupid crap is not going to end until those of us that are sane all agree to the following: the people behold this kind of stuff are not just misguided. They aren’t just wrong. They are bad human beings. They are not for equality, but for inequality. They think they are smarter than everyone else but they are not.

    1. some equal pigs are more equal pigs than other equal pigs. sorry george.

    2. Equality isn’t a priority at all. This is all about division and resentment. They are evil.

  50. I told you BLM and CHAZ was racist!!!!

  51. Tema Okun Is a boomer from the 60s who supports Bill Ayers, the trustafarian, boomer who planted bombs at the pentagon. He and his fellow, boomer terrorists blew up a brownstone in Greenwich Village while making bombs there. A big oopsie.

  54. “There’s no need to cloak this mundane and reasonable decision in social justice gobbledygook.”

    You seem to not get it. It’s making you bow to this gobbledygook that they want, not whether it is accurate or reasonable.

    Once you repeat their lies you are theirs.

  55. Who is John Galt?

  60. The New York Post reported that the memo cites a 1999 paper by Tema Okun. That paper does not specifically say that acronyms are racist, though it does label “worship of the written word” as an aspect of white supremacy. Other purported characteristics of white supremacy are “perfectionism,” a “sense of urgency,” “individualism,” and “objectivity.”

    The “written word”, objectivity, sense of urgency, individualism are now evil words! This is nothing short of Orwellian, these people are scary FREAKS. Do folks that nothing is safe. Now that they’ve set their sights on the evil “written word”, history shows that book burnings are next. They can’t burn the internet but I wonder when the students will need to have the horrific “written word” kept from them, for their own woke goodness of course!

  63. This shows that there are a lot of people out there, especially in San Francisco, who need a psychiatric evaluation.

  64. Words used to have meanings. Eventually the only thing that will be permitted will be neanderthal grunts. Uh (good), mmm (bad).
    Wait, neanderthal literally is racist!

    1. Words mean exactly what we want them to mean. If we want to be understood, we will use them in the way most other people use them.

  65. I hadn’t heard that one. I bet there are people in this room who think this is a bigger problem than neo-Nazis literally shitting on the US capitol.

    Wokeists are definitely woke. They understand the truth, at least, that culture is the product of many horrors, and the culture we adopt is in many ways forced upon us.

    They miss the part where it’s inevitable and desirable for cultures to intermingle in peaceful ways, even if one dominates another in the final mix. You can dislike Darwinian processes, but you can’t deny they exist. Ironically, the people who do deny it are the ones most interested in preserving cultural hegemony.

    These kids will be more educated about the world than fat white guys whose nutsacks instantly retreat into their abdomens the moment someone says “privilege.” Maybe, just maybe, that’s a problem of weakness in white men, not in brown children.

    The Darwinian process of cultural exchange will not spare loony progressive attempts to engineer it either. Seen the word “womyn” in a while?

    These things die if they are stupid. They are nothing to worry about. If they don’t die and end up dominating culture, that means your culture is by definition inferior on that point, in a purely Darwinian sense.

    And it doesn’t matter in the slightest, as long as you don’t care so much about which arbitrary set of rituals your neighbor practices. I do draw the line at science, though. You need to incorporate science into your culture. Yes, you.

    1. Nobody gives a fuck where you draw a line, you angry self loathing little man.

      1. You think science is optional? For ideas likely to die quickly, sure. Science is a remarkably effective tool. That’s kind of its whole thing.

  75. Just came across the basis of their claim; from a letter penned by the Pamona College Students in 2017:

    “Historically, white supremacy has venerated the idea of objectivity, and wielded a dichotomy of ‘subjectivity vs. objectivity’ as a means of silencing oppressed peoples. The idea that there is a single truth–’the Truth’–is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment, which was a movement that also described Black and Brown people as both subhuman and impervious to pain. This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.”

PLEASE. as our act of contrition we are currently in the process of recalling newsom so as to end his political career. when we do that it will be to your benefit as much as ours.
