Last June Cambridge University college Gonville and Caius announced that it was taking down a window commemorating Sir Ronald Fisher, the creator of modern statistics. shorturl.at/fuJPS 

The window allegedly “gave offense” because Fisher also headed up Cambridge University’s eugenics research program, which has, through accusation and Third Reich genetic experiments, come to be associated with racism.  The removed window says nothing about eugenics and depicts a mathematical model that Fisher devised.  Nevertheless, newspaper headlines, such as The Guardian’s, described the window as commemorating an eugenicist, not the greatest statistics genius of all time. shorturl.at/acdeO 

The Guardian was unable to point out that it was a Cambridge University research program, not Fisher’s.  The Guardian also failed to wonder how ignorant BLM thugs had ever heard of R.A. Fisher. Have you ever heard of him? Most likely one of Cambridge’s quota hires had decided to have fun with the white university’s cowardice.

The college administration, of course, fell all over itself to erase the memory of its illustrous member in order to please Black Lives Matter. The college administration said it “is now aware of the views and actions of RA Fisher in a way that was not fully appreciated in 1989” (apparently when the window was installed as one of a series celebrating the college’s  famous members) and was taking further steps to stamp out racism at the college.

This is the same university where in the same week a quota hire, Priyamvada Gopal, tweeted “Abolish whiteness,” “White lives don’t matter.”  Not only did this not give offense, Cambridge University rushed to her defense and promoted her to the rare position of full professor. shorturl.at/nvQ05  

Cambridge is generally ranked as the second most prestigeous university in the world, after Oxford.  The erasure of a famous statistician and scientist while promoting an anti-white racist lecturer of postcolonial literature tells us all we need to know about the utter collapse of white confidence in the leading white universities of the world.   

Statues of white people are everywhere disappearing.  Initially it was “racist” Confederate war memorials, but “systemic racism” and “critical race theory” define all white people as racists.

Now it is the University of Wisconsin removing the statue of Abe Lincoln.  shorturl.at/fiAG7  

The practice of universities and colleges disavowing their most illustrous members in order to pander to the ignorant thugs of Black Lives Matter But White Lives Don’t has spread to the California Institute of Technology, one of America’s top scientific research and educational institutions. One might have thought that a research and educational education focused on science and engineering, and unemcumbered with Black Studies, Feminist studies, Queer studies, Transgender studies, postcolonial literature and the other “studies” in which fact plays no part, would be immune to pandering to anti-white racism.  But, sadly, this is not the case.  Caltech is about to remove the name of its venerated former president Robert A. Millikan from buildings and programs.  You guessed it, Millikan’s offense is that he also dabbled in the “racist” eugenics movement of a century ago. shorturl.at/ptBH0  

How did eugenics become “racist”?  It certainly wasn’t thought of as racist at the time.  It was a liberal movement  incorporating the liberal confidence of an ever-improving humanity. Eugenics aimed at reducing human suffering by breeding out disease, disabilities and other undesirable characteristics from the human population and increaseing the occurrence of heritable characteristics regarded as desirable.

To put the “racist” brand on eugenics is itself racist, because it implies that the person calling eugenics “racist” believes that blacks have no desirable characteristics that would improve the human race.  How could anyone deny black contributions to popular music and athletics, for example.  Black athletes dominate basketball, and the current world champion racing driver is Lewis Hamilton who yesterday (October 11, 2020) in the German Grand Prix tied Michael Schumacher’s record for the most Formula One race wins. In a society such as ours that judges worth by money Hamilton’s annual salary of $54 million puts him in the top ranks of successful people. (Hamilton is half white, half black, but finds it advantageous to identify as black. Obviously, Hamilton does not believe in “white privilege.”)
