The stupidity of American elites

Of the dozen or so professors I've known who are Hispanic, all of them except one are objectively white. I looked at the General Social Survey: 60 percent of all Latinos with  four or more years of college classify themselves as white.

This exemplifies perfectly the stupidity of American elites. We push aside a more qualified white in order to give the position to a less qualified white.

A friend of mine who is an engineering professor described one of his "African American" colleagues as indistinguishable from white. She was recognizable as female, however, so she had that going for her.

Those chosen as representatives of Australia's indigenous people (the Aborigines), supposedly of Aboriginal descent, are indistinguishable from whites.

Interesting about the Ozzie aboriginals, Anonymous above. Have you seen the current "chief" of the Cherokee Nation, a fellow by the name of Chad Smith?

A square-jawed Anglo-Saxon if there ever was one. Most of the other leaders of the Cherokee Nation are pretty white-looking as well.
