NYU Gets $40,000 From HHS to Study Why Children ‘Favor Whiteness and Maleness’

“Despite national rises and racial and gender diversity, White men remain vastly overrepresented across a host of domains within the U.S.”

This is another example of far left politics disguised as an academic pursuit.

FOX News reports:

HHS gives NYU $40,000 to study why children ‘favor Whiteness and maleness’

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded over $40,000 to New York University (NYU) researchers to conduct a study on why children “favor Whiteness and maleness over other identities.”

The project titled, “Societal assumptions regarding typical personhood and their effects on reasoning development,” seeks to uncover the developmental processes by which children “acquire the belief that White males represent the default person – a pattern rooted in the ideologies of androcentrism (centering the experiences of men) and ethnocentrism (centering the experiences of White people) prevalent in the United States,” according to the grant summary on USASpending.gov.

HHS awarded NYU a total of $40,391 for the 3-year project, which began in February and will conclude on January 31, 2025.

“Despite national rises and racial and gender diversity, White men remain vastly overrepresented across a host of domains within the U.S., from media, to politics, to clinical research,” the project description states. “Such overrepresentation poses severe costs to the rest of society – women of all races, men of color, and gender-nonconforming individuals – particularly within the domain of health, where clinical trials have historically prioritized the experiences, perspectives, and health outcomes of White men.”

NYU researchers hope to discover through their research the “developmental trajectory” by which children’s default representations of people “begin to favor Whiteness and maleness over other identities.”

Well for one, I don’t think a man exists who wasn’t at some point in his life “proud of his anatomy” (to quote Ray Stevens). And “whiteness” (western culture) as much as the leftist deride it, offers more stability,predictablity, and security than what other cultural ideologies are offering. You don’t really need a study to figure that out.

I don’t see the usual suspects decrying ethnocentrism in Africa or the Middle East.

Kids know good things instinctively.

    Where the requisite child grooming has been taking place, how many boys “choose” to transition to girls, as opposed to vice versa? Because my impression is not that girls are choosing maleness overwhelmingly.

This is government sponsored American Marxism

Will they be asking the children when they stopped beating their wife?

” Why Children ‘Favor Whiteness and Maleness’”

I would think that before you can study “why” children favor whiteness and maleness you’d have to prove that children do, in fact, favor whiteness and maleness?

Or at least define the assumption: is the claim that all children favor whiteness and maleness, or could it be that white male children tend to favor whiteness and maleness? And if so, do brown, female children also favor brownness and femalness?

What kind of legitimate study starts by assuming a conclusion??

How about a grant to study systemic black violence.
