Affirmative action at work: Stockton CA mayor has never held a job


The PBS NewsHour had a glowing story about the mayor of Stockton California, a very young looking black man with what appeared to be a very bizarre haircut that one doesn't see very often in the professional world.

His name is Michael Tubbs and he became Mayor of Stockton, California at the age of 26. And, as far as I can tell, he has never held a full time job before becoming mayor. (I checked his Wikipedia page and many other sources).

Mayor Tubbs was raised by a single mother in violence torn Stockton while his father is serving a life sentence in prison. Tubbs got a free scholarship to Stanford. How did he make use of this rare educational opportunity? By majoring in Race and Ethnicity. Tubbs, who is black, got a degree in the subject of... being black. Then he got a master's degree in something called "Policy, Leadership, and Organization Studies". I honestly have no idea what that is. Then, even more bizarrely, he got a "multi-disciplinary degree" from the University of Cambridge in "gender studies". In short, Tubbs went to excellent schools and wasted it all studying race and gender and social science doubletalk.

Then Tubbs got an internship at Google, even though he never studied computer programming. I was unable to find any record of what it was he did there. Then Tubbs got an internship at the White House, even though he never studied government or political science. I was unable to find any mention of what it was that he did there.

Tubbs then returned to Stockton and ran for the city council, and won. I believe this was his first job, albeit a very part-time one.

Then Tubbs, at the age of 26, ran for mayor of Stockton and won. Stockton is a mess--it was in bankruptcy and has a lot of violent crime. Tubbs' solution is to pay residents $500 a month, and to focus on alternatives to policing such as mentoring youths who have had "contact with the criminal justice system". The story on PBS portrayed him as a rocket scientist, when clearly he has no experience or idea how to run a city the size of Stockton, or of any size.

I think it's fair to conclude that nearly all, if not all of Tubbs' success has been due to affirmative action, a preference based on race but not experience or proven ability. When top schools, prestigious companies, and the political world opens its doors based race, it demeans blacks who got there on merit, it breeds resentment among white people who don't have the same advantages, and it sets the educational and business world on a harmful agenda that pursues ideology over meritocracy.

As Donald Glover might say, "This is America".

Libs demand more than $20 an hour delivering packages


How much is unskilled labor worth? For liberals, you might think the answer is an astronomical $15 an hour, the minimum wage many states have set, destroying jobs that cannot provide that much value. But for libs, $15 an hour is just the starting point. The Atlantic wrote a sob story about someone who took a part time job delivering packages for Amazon for $18 an hour (which would eventually go up to $25). Her anger, and indignation, explains what is wrong about the liberal entitlement mentality.

White town split into three parts to give American Indians control


The PBS NewsHour was excited to report about the political situation in San Juan County, Utah. The NewsHour claimed that the County had been gerrymandered so that the American Indians were relegated to only one of three county supervisor seats. And it is true that the American Indians are a majority of the population of the county. One district had 93% American Indians while the other two had 30% each.

Some black people were forced to move out of Portland Oregon because of the construction of a highway which razed homes and gentrification which raised housing prices beyond their means.
