Progressive or Parody? Supposed Progressive Dallas Group Asks White Libs to Keep Their Kids Out of Ivy League Schools

“Talk is not enough. Commit yourself towards taking action and making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice.”

A group called ‘Dallas Justice Now’ is asking wealthy, white liberals not to send their children to Ivy League schools in order to make room for students of color.

It’s genuinely difficult to tell if this is real or a parody of virtue-signaling progressives.

The Dallas Observer reported the flyer is fake along with the group. No one could find a lot of information about Dallas Justice Now or those in charge of it. It found the website traces back to the PR firm Arena, which has connections to the right and Republicans.

When something seems too perfect to be true it most likely is fake. The language is too perfect. The words they use are too perfect. The structure is too perfect.

Jordan Davidson writes at The Federalist:

Racist Dallas Group Demands Rich, White, BLM-Supporting Democrats Keep Their Kids Out Of Ivy Leagues

A Dallas-based group that prides itself on defunding the police and labeling people who don’t comply with their “equity” initiatives as “racists” is asking “wealthy white liberals” in the city to pledge to keep their children from applying to and attending Ivy League and U.S. News & World Report Top 50 schools.

“Talk is not enough. Commit yourself towards taking action and making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice. Open up spaces for Black and LatinX communities by refusing to send your kids to Ivy League and US News & World Report Top 50 schools and encourage friends, neighbors, and family members to do the same,” the “racial justice” organization Dallas Justice Now demands on its website. “Imagine if those hundreds of thousands of spots at these institutions were occupied only by marginalized communities. Imagine the opportunities. We can achieve true equity within our lifetimes but only if white folks are willing to sacrifice their privileges.”

The pledge, which was directed toward residents in Dallas’ richest neighborhood, asks white people not only to acknowledge their “privilege” and “whiteness,” but also to “make sacrifices for the purpose of correcting hundreds of years of murder, slavery, discrimination, and lack of educational and economic opportunities perpetrated upon people of color.”

Can this possibly be real?

Tim Rogers of D Magazine says it’s not real:

Dallas Justice Now: Fact or Fiction?

A letter mailed to Park Cities homes is causing a bit of a stir. It asks White Democrats to pledge not to send their children to Ivy League schools or any of the U.S. News & World Report top 50 colleges as a way to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and to give kids of color a better chance of attending a good school. The letter was sent by an organization called Dallas Justice Now.

I think this whole thing is a hoax. Call it astroturf. Call it trolling. Whatever you like. But this is not a real thing. Everyone needs to take a breath and relax.

How can he be so sure?

Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire says it’s real.

If it is a parody, it’s almost too perfect.

If whitey steps aside, Room opens up for the less qualified.

There is a group called “Dallas Justice Now” that created a Facebook page in oct. 2020 that has been active since that point in time. The usual “BLM” sort of noise on it.

Many of the rich people who live in rich neighborhoods today are foreigners. You see them when you go to the hospital. Their wealth came from education. Probably less than 1% of the people in America today got their wealth through oppression of minorities. On the other hand a considerable number of people can’t get a good job or get their children into a good school becasue of affirmative action.

Since the 60’s Afferemtiacew Action has been Making America Mediocre Again. Reams of data show why and how that was a bad idea. So what are these malcontents really complaining about?

As I have said before, the top public school in Richmond, VA, equivalent to TJ in NOVA (except with an emphasis on government !) hosted a black lady guest speaker at a regional student event who told the kids that the government should confiscate homes from people who have more than one and give them to people who need them…. So I called the Richmond Times Dispatch and talked to the education reporter who seriously argued with me that some parents would be happy that their kids were hearing this message (without parental knowledge)….

Progress is an [unqualified] monotonic process. #BabyLivesMatter

    Liberalism is divergent (often misinterpreted as tolerant). Liberterianism is self-organizing. Conservativism is self-moderating. Pro-Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Principles matter.

What makes Ivy League colleges exceptional are exceptionally bright students. Full them with unqualified Affirmative students, they will become mediocre, then wither and die.

Whether the group is real or not the substance of the question posed is valid. The elites tend to outsource or externalize the costs of their schemes to others.

They want cheap labor in their farm fields, factory floor, construction site or cleaning their kitchen but the illegal laborers they demand and employ live in your neighborhood and attend your child’s public school.

That’s just one policy example. Let’s see if they will have their children surrender the opportunity for an IVY League education, goodness knows the parents haven’t stepped aside from their own week compensated positions to allow more ‘diversity, inclusion and equity’.

Something tells me none of them will.

If it is satire, it is brilliant. And whether it is real or not it is a question worth asking of rich white progressives: are you willing to practice what you preach about the need to acknowledge and give up “white privilege”?

If not true (as is most likely), this is some grandmaster-class trolling.

The truth is, I think the faculty at the Ivies would be less prepared for the students they would get than the students would be for their schools.

    John I don’t think you have been paying attention. THIS is EXACTLY the sort of thing that is being demanded of whites to step away and even more…. across the board…..jobs…houses…even speaking in class or at a company or in public. Whites should, they say have less rights and be considered lessor people. Students have included it in their lists of demands to cowering administrations. Some just flat out say whites should stop having kids and die off as fast as possible. So to be incredulous about this demand shows you aren’t aware of what’s going on and just how extreme and dangerous it has become.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter whether the organization was real or not. Regardless of the source of the letter, its “woke logic” is inescapable. It will gnaw at the consciences of the limousine liberals, waking and sleeping. They will know, down in their guilt-ridden, self-hating hearts, that this is something they should be doing to atone for their “privilege.” And they will hate themselves even more for not being able to bring themselves to do it.

Poe’s Law in action.

And I’m here, not bothered at all to recommend any high performing student stop looking to the name brand universities where they will be a faceless number for most of their career. Look at small state universities which will provide lots of that face time and interaction you won’t get with the name brand experience. Add in the cost savings and the advantages begin to add up.

    You make an excellent point but much of the impetus of an Ivy League berth is to satisfy the parent’s wishes. Nobody brags about their kid going to a small state university.

      henrybowman in reply to NYBruin. | July 30, 2021 at 9:28 pm

      People need to stop looking at a university degree as a trophy, and return to looking at it as a tool.

    I understand the point you are attempting to make, but I am not sure you fully understand the reason for “name brand” pedigrees.

    Specifically, they are clubs, or more precisely each a club within a system of clubs. Thus if you are deemed “worthy” or you (or your parents) pay the full freight, the graduate gets an “entry card” that implies “indoctrinated” and “potential”.

    Now somewhere between 30 and 40 years of age many Ivy League alum discover they were “indoctrinated” and become angry; others while indoctrinated have demonstrated a clear lack of “potential”. Articles abound of the “well educated, 40 something” who cannot find an “appropriate position (aka job)”. …

    The argument for “college” should not be which school will grant the “best environment” (at an affordable cost). The analysis should be “Why are you going to college ?” “Are you looking for ‘professional vocation training” ? “Do you wish to continue to learn ‘how to teach yourself’ ?” (Hopefully “teaching one’s self” was at least part of the goal of the K-12 experience.) …

    And, I’ll finish with “If you want to find yourself ?” get a job and then another … and after 18 – 36 months re-evaluate whether you want to go to college and for “what reason”. There isn’t an employer outside of government or academia that doesn’t prefer the job candidate who actually worked before attending (and completed) college.

I remember a similar comment a few months ago that said white people who had no heirs should leave their estates to minority families. Have to redistribute the wealth, you see.

It’s real all right. Nothing like dropping ammunition behind enemy lines. History is rife with examples: the Stalin-Ribbentrop Pact, Munich appeasement, most of the buildup to to WW I, etc. Tough to know who your friends will be in a little while. In this case, a ~very~ little while.

Tough to ignore the schadenfreude….
