Should This Blond, Fair-Skinned White Kid Get Affirmative Action for Being “Black”? He Will

By Debbie Schlussel

Why will this blond White kid get affirmative action? Why is he considered Black?

julianthickeaffirmativeaction

Like many of you, I’ve always opposed the racism euphemistically sanitized with the name “affirmative action.” As we all know, affirmative action consists of racial, ethnic, and gender based preferences for “minorities” in which they get preferred over more qualified White males in hiring, promotions, government contracts, college and grad school admissions, and other areas. It’s racism and bigotry, plain and simple. And, sometimes, it’s applied even to those who are only 1/64th minority.

Then, there is this kid, in the picture above. He has blond hair and very fair skin. He looks White to me, and probably to you, too. And he’s from a rich family. Both of his parents make a lot of money. Yet, this blond, lily-White kid from a wealthy family will be considered Black for affirmative action purposes and always have a leg up on other White kids.

Why?







Well, the kid, Julian Fuego Thicke, is 25% Black. His father is Robin Thicke, the successful White pop star and sleazebag who sang in the MTV twerking appearance with Miley Virus last year. And the boy’s mother is actress Paula Patton, who is considered Black, but who has a White mother and a Black father.

And that’s the thing about racist affirmative action, which posturing judges and politicians say was created to address racism and bigotry against minorities. It’s actually racism in favor of minorities and against White males. And, since affirmative action is so tone deaf to reality, it favors those who never have and never will experience discrimination of any kind, such as Julian Thicke. Under affirmative action at any American college or university, this White kid will be considered Black if he checks the box. He will get preference against other White males not only in admissions, but in financial aid and scholarships. And he’ll be preferred for jobs and promotions once he’s hired. And he’ll be eligible for minority set-asides and minority-exclusive bids and contracts with the federal government.

Yup, this White kid whose parents and grandparents are multi-millionaires will get all sorts of “legs up” on poor Whites from Appalachia or Arkansas who had it a lot worse and worked so much harder to get where they were.

Julian Thicke’s father sang the pop hit, “Blurred Lines,” but Julian Thicke–whom the government and affirmative action see as an “oppressed Black kid”–is the real blurred line.

Julian Thicke is a great example of why affirmative action doesn’t work. And why it should end.

***

BTW, in a stark example of where the real racism is and who discriminates against whom, check out what Thicke told Howard Stern, last year:

The funny thing is, in high school she didn’t take me to prom, her prom, because she didn’t want everyone to know she was with a White guy because she was president of the Black Student Union. I was a secret. She didn’t want to show up with a White guy. Funny right?

I know California ended race based preferential treatment for college admissions, but there is a Mexican law-maker who wants to bring this back. I believe its suspended now, but he is definitely trying and his reason is pointless, just thinks his folks should be given preferential treatment.

IS Robin Thicke Alan Thicke’s son?

DS_ROCKS! on April 15, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    @DS_Rocks! Yes. Doesn’t say much for his parenting skills, eh?

I realize it would be mostly symbolic, but at what point are conservatives going to have the huevos to flat come out and say that the Civil Rights Act (which led to all this) was a terrible law?

Prometheus on April 16, 2014 at 9:15 am

    Prometheus, it was a terrible law. Anytime you have to pass a law to guarantee and enforce what are supposed to be basic Constitutional rights, it is very terrible. It’s a law that should not have been necessary, but the way some Americans treated and denied basic Constitutional rights to other Americans made it a necessity…

    Frankie on April 16, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      Oh bull, Frankie. Nothing stopped the Warren Court from finding scads of discriminatory laws unconstitutional.

      Your apologia for these so-called civil rights acts (more than one) comes from the Left, and it won’t work here.

      skzion on April 17, 2014 at 10:15 am

      It was a terrible and indeed unconstitutional law, Frankie. There was no need for any civil rights laws to strike down extant segregation. The Warren Court could have done such this.

      Your leftist apologia is contemptible.

My Great-Great Grandmother was American Indian from/in Louisiana and married my GG Grandfather from somewhere in Germany (immigrant). The otherside of the family originates from/in Sicily and Bohemia. The latter is documented as far back as 1650’s (Ottoman Empire).
So, should I check:
American Indian, Turkish (why were the “Slavs” Slavs”?, or African-American (black non-Hispanic) [because after all, the Moor’s who conquered Sicily for a bit, were from North Africa right?)
-Or-
Has the “Melting Pot” become the “Smelting Pot”? Negroid, Mongoloid, and Caucasoid period. This is similar to what the Third Reich was doing with census data to “prove purity.” Some animals are more equal than others eh? FTS.

    @Sick_Boy–

    Go to the head of the class! Scratch a liberal, reveal a Nazi. Another reason why the Civil Rights Act was so bad. BTW–We already had a 14th amendment, so the fix was in from day one.

    Prometheus on April 16, 2014 at 9:30 am

    @Sick_Boy About 2 yrs ago I started putting “Euro-American” on all paperwork. No one has questioned it yet.

    Laura S. on April 17, 2014 at 9:52 am

To DS_ROCKS!, yes, he is Alan Thicke’s son.

To Prometheus, and Sick Boy by reference, exactly, that’s what we have now, National Socialism. Back in the 70’s when I started seeing certain things develop in America society, I spoke of days like this and was told “that could never happen here.” The theory of course, being that there were too many checks and balances. Well, it’s already happened here, and it’s getting more intense by the day.

That last point brings me back to Prometheus again. No, the only people with cojones in the Republicrat Party are women, and they are quickly destroyed by the media, once they become prominent. We are finished. Get used to it.

As for BigD, always good to see you, bro. I’ll be looking for a B.U.A.N. web site some day. I honestly believe you’re on to something good, and I support your efforts to grow the idea and doctrine.

All this needed to go away decades ago. It’s been proven time and again that it serves merely as a platform to corrupt and abuse system(s) that are already out of control and have led to to the imbalance and subsequent ineptitude we have in education, jobs, and overall productivity.

Put the wrong person in the wrong position and what are we left? Oh yeah, let’s start at the feds and work our way down….

WTF, OVER?!

IceNoMore on April 16, 2014 at 12:43 pm

Deb:

I don’t make the rules. I just cope with them… or exploit them if I can.

My ancestors emigrated to Argentina before immigrating to the United States. I suppose I COULD say I’m Hispanic. I have relatives there and Mexico too. There are many of them.

Should I check the “Hispanic” box? I’ve never been able to bring myself to do that.

OK, it’s been 50 years since the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Three generations ago. I think it’s time that all of the Affirmative Action nonsense was ended. It makes discrimination against whites legal, and it doesn’t help minorities because people automatically assume they got their position, whatever it is, because of affirmative action rather than merit. Which, unfortunately, is still the case much of the time.

MIGirl on April 17, 2014 at 9:11 am

    @MIGirl–

    Oh yeah, we should end it, only that will never happen. And that is the worst legacy of the Civil Rights Act: Victimization forever and ever.

    Prometheus on April 17, 2014 at 10:08 am

      Prometheus:

      Affirmative action is NOT the “the worst legacy of the Civil Rights Act”. It is not a legacy at all.

      It’s Passover! Some of us recall slavery. Since the Civil Rights Act was a legacy of the 13th Amendment (abolishing Slavery), would you then suggest that the 13th Amendment be repealed? I think not.

      Our problem here in America is that we take perfectly good ideas to the nth degree of absurdity. Affirmative Action is but one small example.

Common sense went out the window. It’ll end when the muckrakers get what they want. I look at the most looked-up words on Merriam-Webster’s dictionary online, and when some of the most looked-up words include: fascism, eviscerate, and bigot it makes me worry. I worry because I know human nature and most people don’t have enough integrity to “Do the Right Thing” (irony is another of the most commonly looked up words in the online dictionary).

According to some of my Black friends, it’s not about skin color, it’s about how one is raised. What environment and culture they are exposed to. This kid will have every advantage as his mother did and I doubt he will need or want AA. As for his being blond, now, that will probably change since his father is dark haired and that is the dominant gene. Blondness is a recessive trait. I had a Black boyfriend before my husband. He was admitted to Georgia Tech in 1962 and didn’t need AA. He was brilliant and had college professor parents so he had cultural advantages even tho he grew up under “separate but (maybe not so) equal.” But still, even tho he was in his 40s and had taken engineering jobs all over the world, there were some Black cultural markers and they were ones he chose to keep. He could speak “proper” English with the best of them but it was comfortable and, as we Jews say, “hamish,” to use some colloquialisms if not full out Ebonics. Not every minority person approves of or uses AA to get ahead. Some are actually capable of competing in the wider world. Imagine that.

    “As for his being blond, now, that will probably change since his father is dark haired and that is the dominant gene. Blondness is a recessive trait.”

    Actually, insofar as blondness is recessive, its evident expression in this case will no more change than blue eyes will change to brown eyes over the years. Hair color is based on multiple alleles, though.

    skzion on April 17, 2014 at 5:08 pm

      skzion, my ex had blond hair until he was about 5-6 and then it turned dark brown as did a couple of my grandsons. True their eyes didn’t change but hair can. My ex has hazel eyes but even the boys with brown eyes started out blond in a couple of cases. I, myself had quite reddish brown hair as a young person and it gradually turned darker. It was pretty light as a baby.

      Meira on April 18, 2014 at 6:52 am

        As I said, hair color is governed by multiple alleles.

        skzion on April 18, 2014 at 1:23 pm

And what’s with singling out an innocent toddler as an example of something he will probably never do, just because his parents are famous?

Meira on April 17, 2014 at 11:10 am

99% of the victims of affirmative action don’t even know it. For example, colleges do not notify you when they pass you over for being the wrong race etc.

Brian on April 17, 2014 at 7:08 pm

It is the trap that a country falls into with Affirmative Action. You wind up with well off people getting benefits originally intended for poor minorities.

To be fair, the kid does have a flat nose. Just sayin’…

    I know you’re being funny, but there is some African physiognomy there, cheek bones, wide forehead, eye shape.

    Meira on April 18, 2014 at 6:54 am

Well, Meira, it was the “high cheekbones” story that got Sen. Fauxcahontas Warren all sorts of perks and supposedly the right to check the “Native American” box. Never mind any sort of documentation; high cheekbones automatically qualifies someone as Cherokee, supposedly…

    Hey, it twerked for Miley.

    Jimbo on April 18, 2014 at 10:00 pm

Wake up.

White students can’t even get jobs anymore. Every where you go in California, its all Hispanics working at every store, restaurant, and business. They work their way into a place, and then start harassing non-Hispanics who work there so others Hispanics can take their place.

Very, very disgusting. I’m tired of liberals constantly referring to racism, when the greatest victim of it today is whites!

That is about the size of it.
