High GPA, Lower Than Expected Standardized Test Score Students

Many colleges are now dropping standardized tests. Having been around many, many high GPA, lower than expected test score students, I'll offer some small sample thoughts. For brevity, I'll refer to these students as GPAers.

GPAers tend to be hard working memorizers. On the plus side, they seldom sink into lifestyles of nihilism or detached irony. But they struggle with difficult abstract ideas, often frustrated, eventually deciding the abstract ideas must be worthless. When struggling, they demand test retakes or extra credit opportunities. They get angry at teachers when students they regard as inferior understand subjects better than themselves.

Many GPAers avoid classes with difficult abstract ideas, which is good. A top National Honor Society student from my high school was in my modern physics class. Modern physics is an easy class--no differential equations or other difficult math. She withdrew from the class in utter confusion, costing her time and money. GPAers sometimes become valedictorians without taking any available advanced placement classes.

GPAers trend toward opportunism and conformity. They reject ideas outside popular Overton windows. They place great value on formal secondary education for themselves and their children--while higher test score, lower GPA students often regard secondary education classes as sick jokes, massive time sinks.

In the work force, many GPAers realize their limits. But other GPAers, often in positions of power, resort to insipid slogans and agreement with evil above them.

Good ethics is abstract and complex. Evil is easy. While most courses at colleges shouldn't exist, there are some beneficial subjects that require high IQs, along with hard work. Thus, standardized test scores should continue to be used when weighing college applications.

Multicultural Contradictions, Part XIX

  1. Older whites sometimes say, "I don't care. I'm not gonna be around much longer," about multicultural mass destruction, while at the same time caring about trivial partisan wedge issues.
  2. Multicultural media tell us Hispanics don't commit more crime than whites, using predictably false self-reports from Hispanic criminals.
  3. The fervor of Antifas. For what? Being useful tools of corporations Antifas despise? Being massively, relentlessly wrong?
  4. Multicultural feminism cares mostly about promoting Marxism and glass ceiling issues, not helping ordinary women, often ignoring or suppressing news about rapes or beatings or murders when Muslims or people of color commit them.
  5. The self-described reality based community would not let you know that George Floyd died from a drug overdose.
  6. Whites disproportionately die in the wars created by multiculturalists, but multiculturalists pretend the deaths are disproportionately American blacks. "In the Korean War, 80 percent of military deaths were white; 8.4 percent were African-American. In Vietnam the military death ratio was 85.6 percent white to 12.4 percent black. In the first Gulf War it was 76.3 percent white compared to 17.2 percent black; in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom), 85 percent white compared to 8 percent black; and in Operation Iraqi Freedom through 2014, the military death ratio was 82 percent white to 10 percent black."
  7. Multiculturalists operate as if their believing something and frequently repeating it makes it true but ridicule others for doing the same nonsense.
  8. Multiculturalists praise unity, meaning everyone conforming to do the evil things multiculturalists support, while blasting conformity among outgroups.

Multicultural Contradictions, Part XVIII

  1. Even award winning, super excellent special education teachers fail to turn cognitively impaired students into mediocre students.
  2. "All religions share the same basic truths." Nope.
  3. Greedy, egalitarian university administrators ruling over extremely unequal institutions.
  4. Affirmative action often puts students in educational situations beyond student competence, leading to anxiety, frustration, depression, dropping out, and unpaid college debts. Or plummeting educational standards. Or both.
  5. So-called egalitarians make harsh moral judgments based on ethically irrelevant looks, height, clothing, and hair styles.
  6. Millions of multicultural whites walk around thinking they didn't get a decent job because others were better qualified, never realizing that affirmative action and HR multiculturalism played major roles.
  7. Someone with severe cognitive impairments gets compassion and paternalistic protections from the state. Someone with mild impairments in IQ and conscientiousness gets exploited by powerful groups and insulted for their lack of success.
  8. Most multiculturalists seem unaware that the greatest inequalities exist between the healthy and the unhealthy, not race.
  9. Multicultural elites habitually suck up to people with more money or power than themselves and punch down at people with less money or power than themselves while mouthing egalitarian platitudes.
  10. Multicultural public policies are often based on lotteries, tribalism or bribing the right officials, not the so-called new meritarianism of multiculturalism.
  11. Multiculturalism pressures individuals into becoming real world method actors, willing to adopt or feign allegiance to whatever rotten idea multiculturalists concoct next, raising numerous ethical questions: Do these method actors fake it until they make it? Do they become less able to experience cognitive dissonance? Do they become more Machiavellian? Do they develop mental illnesses?

Multicultural Contradictions, Part XVII

  1. Integrated prisons.
  2. Media show images of Muslims praying to suggest how pious and fantastic Muslims are. Media fail to discover that Muslim prayers are often daydream sessions about torturing and murdering outgroups.
  3. No go zones.
  4. Some multiculturalists believe most humans have the brains to get math or physics degrees if they work hard and have good teachers, never realizing that 400 level math and physics classes are more difficult than any subject they imagine, far more difficult than easy classes like calculus II.
  5. Polls suggest adults believe various formal schooling activities have huge positive effects on IQ, that formal schooling turns low IQ individuals into geniuses, so where are these billions of geniuses among us after the massive amount of formal schooling that occured in the past few generations?
  6. Some multicultural HBDers believe HBD revolutionized their ways of thinking, yet such HBDers often support the same old plutocratic, anti-white, neoconservative politicians.
  7. Allegedly meritocratic multicultural elites fail their way upward as long as they avoid acts that offend the wrong interest groups.
  8. Oprah, Dr. Phil, and pop psychology.
  9. Some parents sacrifice most of their waking hours acting on their mistaken beliefs in the powers of nurture assumptions and helicopter parenting, only to see their children turn out horrible thanks to rotten genes and atrocious mass cultures. Others believe their helicopter parenting deserves credit for their children turning out well when good genes and isolation from mass cultures were more important causes.
  10. Phone calls to incompetent government phone agents.
  11. Karl Rove.
  12. Every daily newspaper.
  13. Research suggests job interviews are worthless for picking good employees. Research suggests civil service exams are half-way decent at picking good employees. Governments ditch civil service exams.

Minipedia, Part XVI

  1. Multiculturalism makes it nearly impossible for multiculturalists to have good character because multiculturalism has a multitude of ever worse groupthink loyalty tests. One failure to pass a loyalty test often results in severe punishments. The changing orthodoxy will punish someone for something they did years ago that was acceptable to multiculturalists then. Walking on eggshells on behalf of totalitarianism is no way for ethical beings to live. Multiculturalists incite counter movements with their own strict, totalitarian groupthink demands.
  2. Block busting.
  3. Nurture assumptions and helicopter parenting for status purposes by supposedly egalitarian parents.
  4. Historians and policy experts who treat themselves as truth tellers when they  dismiss good evidence from ethics, psychometrics, behavioral genetics, and physical anthropology.
  5. Coercive busing of students.
  6. Red pill pick up artists view themselves as seers of unseen facts. But their willingness to face facts does not include multiculturalism and much else beyond sexual hedonism.
  7. Neoconservatives have few "humanitarian" interests in between advocating for unethical wars and anti-white migrations. The alleged humanitarianism turns on for anti-white purposes, then off for things that would require sacrifices by themselves.

Minipedia of Multicultural Contradictions, Part XV

  1. Parents claim they want the best or good things for their children or all children. If they put their actions where their mouths are, they would get sperm or eggs or both from high IQ, high character individuals. Imagine the greatness of societies where doing so would be normalcy--and at comparatively little cost.
  2. Harmful, misplaced altruism gets praised by multiculturalists. Harmful egoism also gets praised by multiculturalists.
  3. Jihad and sharia supporting multiculturalists slur critics of Islam as American Taliban.
  4. Multiculturalists accuse others of pseudo contradictions while ignoring multicultural self-contradictions. For example, multiculturalists accuse others of having compassion for Rotherham victims while not having compassion for more numerous Afghan civilians. But there is no contradiction. Nearly all Afghan citizens above early childhood are evil. Ninety-nine percent of Afghans polled tell pollsters they support sharia. It is also no contradiction for multiculturalists to feel compassion for their dogs but not for Charles Manson. In addition, there will be a deluge of Rotherhams in the future if the migration and law enforcement policies that create Rotherhams are not reversed early and often. Saying that we owe others because we belong to the same arbitrarily defined species or common humanity is a genetic fallacy, also known as an origins fallacy. Moral duties to porpoises are often greater than those to unethical humans.
  5. Lyndon Johnson.
  6. The use of an undemocratic kritarchy to harm whites, supposedly on behalf of democracy.
  7. Multiculturalists accuse Westerners of not exploring the points of view of non-Westerners. This is sometimes true. But many, if not most, Western foreign policy catastrophes result from Westerners thoughtlessly adopting the beliefs of non-white interest groups in the West.
  8. The Bush clan.
  9. Mass destructive groups dominating US mass media.

Minipedia of Multicultural Contradictions, Part XIV

  1. Pulitzer Prize winning Brett Stephens demanded Americans be deported and replaced with migrants because he asserts Americans "are the stagnant pool in which our national prospects drowning." Also: migrants are less likely to be in prison but he doesn't mention that most prisoners are blacks, browns, and descendants of recent black and brown migrants. Nor does he mention the ease with which migrants can commit crimes and slip back across borders without being incarcerated or the fact that individuals in high migrant areas seldom report crimes committed.
  2. Libel tourism.
  3. Alleged humanitarian interventionists habitually pick sides in evil versus evil conflicts, producing disastrous results: Taliban versus boy raping heroin merchants, China versus Soviets, Soviets versus Mujahedeen, Sadam versus Iran, Sadam versus Kuwaitis and Saudis, Moamar versus Libyan tribes, China versus Uighurs, Somali tribes versus Somali tribes, Saudis versus Yemenis, Jihad Spring versus dictators, etc. The fairly consistent trend: alleged humanitarians act on behalf of profiteering finance, mass media, defense contractors, and certain Southwest Asian nations, not ethical reasoning. Humanitarian interventionists, also known as neoconservatives, seldom help the better side in other conflicts.
  4. Non-whites come to Western countries for freedoms. Non-whites use their new freedoms to destroy whites' freedoms.
  5. The idea that Japan just wanted a co-prosperity sphere was massively upvoted by the Reddit moral experts.
  6. Whites attached to their beloved belief systems import migrants eager to annihilate those belief systems.
  7. The Koch Brothers.
  8. Whites who had nothing to do with Hitlerian Germany allegedly must be punished for Hitlerism, including whites massively harmed by Nazi Germany. But multiculturalists fail to notice the millions of tribal conflicts done by their ancestors, including  especially grizzly slavery and torture.
  9. George Soros.
  10. Multiculturalists treat the alleged right of evil people to breed as the most absolute right. For their occasional sexual pleasure, we must upend schools, families, economies, civilizations, neighborhoods, the environment, and billions of lives. To top it off, multiculturalists treat evil people as morally superior.
  11. Highly improbable dystopian futures pre-occupy science fiction. Yet the things that create real dystopian futures receive little attention in science fiction.
  12. Multiculturalists pretend to be defenders of democracy while using totalitarian force to crush real democracy, including banning the most popular political party in Belgium.
  13. Alt-lite multiculturalists treat politics as entertainment while trying to pass themselves off as moral experts.

Minipedia of Multicultural Contradictions, Part XIII

  1. Multicultural neoconservatives demand several hundred million Americans risk dying in a war to save Taiwan from Chinese rule. Taiwan spends roughly two percent of its GDP on defense and that has created a computer chip monopoly, all while the incompetent, careerist, money wasting US defense establishment has no idea how many nuclear weapons China has.
  2. Whites wanting to be left alone from mass destructive diversity get slurred as white supremacists. Non-whites exerting totalitarian rule over other races get labeled centrists and moderates.
  3. Affirmative action policies target whites for fewer jobs but not races with greater incomes and IQs than whites, even when adjusted for local cost of living.
  4. Government entities count non-white Hispanic, North African, and Southwest Asian criminals as white to make the white crime rate look higher while counting those groups as non-white for other purposes.
  5. The United Nations.
  6. "Sweden to expel 6-year-old orphan to Ukraine while granting amnesty to 9,000 Afghans"
  7. Thought leader science researchers search for drugs, magnets, and other technologies to eliminate thought crimes in the "public interest."
  8. "UK Lord asks if mosques will be monitored for 'hate speech,' is threatened with hate speech prosecution for asking."
  9. New laws punish Westerners for criticizing or boycotting foreign countries.
  10. "Straight-A students are being turned away from British medical schools and forced to pay for training in Eastern Europe, while the National Health Service (NHS) plunders the Third World for already-trained doctors instead."
  11. The Southern Poverty Law Center
  12. American politicians treat Saudi Arabia as if it were their first or second favorite nation. But "Official US Gov’t Documentation Confirms That Saudi Gov’t. Funds Al Qaeda" 
  13. Multiculturalists get livid if someone mentions whites have higher IQs than blacks, not livid if someone mentions other groups have higher IQs than whites and blacks.

Minipedia of Multicultural Contradictions, Part XII

  1. Moral truths get labeled "hate" crimes. Being part of a rape gang that targets white children, drugs them, insults them for their race, not considered hate crimes.
  2. Whites wanting to be left alone labeled r-slur. Whites existing labeled r-slur. Non-whites working to exploit, subjugate, and exterminate whites not labeled r-slur.
  3. Bakeries are legally required to design cakes that go against their values. Big corporations are free to censor ethical truths that go against their values and legally required to do so in Europe and other places.
  4. Multiculturalists were outraged that Colin Kaepernick was blacklisted from the NFL because of his poorly reasoned political beliefs. Also multiculturalists: willing to fire or not hire anyone who tells a political truth they don't want to hear. 
  5. Bill O'Reilly demonized a white teenager on national TV for not inviting blacks to his party. How many gatherings has Bill O'Reilly attended that did not include blacks?
  6. Multiculturalists are enraged by any proposal to rescue whites from South Africa, but not outraged by current refugee policies that favor non-whites over whites and Muslims over Christians. Or previous refugee policies that favored Soviet Jews over other Soviets.
  7. Anti-white and pro BLM tech companies hire few blacks.
  8. "Writers like Max Boot ’92MA, Eliot Cohen, Jennifer Rubin, James Kirchick ’06, Bret Stephens, Cathy Young, and Bill Kristol have resisted the pressures of tribalism at a moment when few dare to leave their partisan tents."
  9. Media get frequently indignant that migrant criminals get separated from their criminal children, but are seldom concerned that citizen criminals are separated from their children. Or more important: that military parents get separated from their children to fight self-destructive wars--often permanently.
  10. Multicultural futurists.
