Tracy Beanz has posted a remarkable letter.
Supposedly from an anonymous UC Berkeley prof.
“I was sent this and felt the need to share it to a wider audience on Twitter. I shared a link to the original post in the tweet. Then, the post was removed, and I made the decision that this is an important perspective not given an equal share in the marketplace of ideas. It is for this reason that UncoverDC now publishes it, not only because it is newsworthy, but because it is a critical piece of history. Wilfred Reilly, mentioned in the letter alongside Thomas Sowell, retweeted my original tweet confirming that he personally received the email, thus verifying its credibility.” – Tracy Beanz
I have pulled out the critical sections:
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 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.
It’s quite shocking that blacks decry “systemic racism” for the reason for their poor score in society. It’s such a easy and convenient excuse. It yields them of any responsibility for their horrific conclusions as failed people.
What is truly shocking is the result of the Ethiopian/Nigerian in American society. They get the full bore of Affirmative action and juicy handouts even though their ancesters were never slaves. Well they deserve it because of “systemic racism” which doesn’t exist. But laden with such goodies, including free college (ol Trumpo just refilled the coffers of black colleges where they teach white hate endlessly, not something I’m particularly happy about). They seem well spoken, energized, and work hard. They leave our American blacks (most of them) in the dust.
The fact that BLM is a front group for funneling donations to Joe “you ain’t black” biden is shocking. Horrible!
Blacks can do better but only if they wake up to reality – there IS NO SYSTEMIC RACISM. There is only their horrific failure. If there is RACISM, it is a discussion of facts with no error – too many blacks are failures, on welfare, single moms or in Prison. All facts. And as long as they believe in Systemic Racism, they will be “victims” and of course, utter failures in life. So I laud Tracy for having the GUTS to speak the truth. It reminds me of the Hodge brothers who were on Alex Jones recently. They talk the same thing – TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE!
Systemic Racism is a belief in a ghost that isn’t there, but has the same effect as if it were. Grab a black man and shake him and say “It’s all in your head” and you’ll be as successful as trying to tell a Jew that the holocaust never happened (there were no gas chambers and six million did not die).
Democrats PUSH this notion of systemic racism at every turn, as do much of the colleges that were supposed to teach not LIE to students. And blacks are EAGER to lap it up until they get so daft they loot cities smash windows and fight the power. How do we tell them they instead should be fighting themselves?
