What works in the fight against liberal racists, their bald-faced canards, and their vicious smear tactics? A healthy dose of mockery makes a powerful point – just ask the Berkeley College Republicans, whose Diversity Bake Sale made headlines—and drew scrutiny to the University’s decision to consider race as a factor in admissions.
Star Parker is one of the leading lights among black conservatives today—and she’s certainly not afraid to call out liberal race-baiters like “comedian” Bill Maher on his racist, anti-Republican BS. (h/t Hannity)
Or take this example - an anecdote shared in response to a story on race-based admissions by Roger Kimball—from a reader:
“When I was in high school, one of the most amazing things happened. Our school had a Black Student Club which, as you might imagine, was populated entirely by black students. (Not all the black students, obviously—my school was 40 percent black at the time—the club was mostly joined by those black students who wanted to get into good colleges and beef up their resumes.) Well, word went around one day early in 12th grade that there was some sort of scholarship being made available for members of the Black Student Club who had above a certain grade point average. Sounded like a sweet deal.
“So, two smart-aleck white boys—not brainiacs, not jocks, not racists, just two sarcastic class clowns who thought it would be funny to see if they could get some of that scholarship cash—went down to the sign-up meeting for the Black Students Club and tried to join.
“Well, you can imagine the fracas that broke out. The teacher who sponsored the club (a black social studies teacher who wore a dashiki and an Africa-shaped pendant) told the boys they couldn’t join and tried to kick them out of the room. The smart-alecks were not intimidated—they asked ‘Why can’t we join?’ And the response was emphatic: ‘Because you’re not black!’
“And then the boys did something amazing. They said, ‘Yes, we are!’ The teacher thundered, ‘No, you’re not!’ And so the boys threw down the gauntlet: ‘PROVE IT! Prove we’re not black! Otherwise, you have to let us in.’
“Wow! Suddenly, the school was in a hell of a pickle. In order to keep the white-looking boys out of the club, the district would have to conduct some sort of racial purity trial to prove, legally, that the boys did not possess sufficient amounts of the desirable African-American blood. It would have been something straight out of the Nazi era or the Jim Crow south. A trial to prove someone was of a certain race so that they could be discriminated against!
“After several tense days, the school district decided that this was a lose-lose scenario for them, and that a trial would have been a public relations disaster of epic proportions. So they ordered the black teacher-sponsor to admit the white students to the Black Students Club.
“The teacher was outraged, but had no choice. He let them in. The two boys then became sort of playground heroes for smashing the race-based policies of the asshole adults.
“But the story has a not-so-happy ending. Shortly thereafter, the Black Students Club met en masse and voted to dis-band the club entirely, for the specific reason of not letting the white boys remain as members. And then later, when the hubbub died down, they formed a ‘new’ club called the African-American Students Club, with all the same members—except the two white boys.
“This time, they didn’t bother repeating their stunt. Their point had been made.
“I think that if this concept was repeated across the country, all race-based policies would crumble.”
