This is typical of the race-hustlers: Wherever they’ve gained, they push for more:
American systems of legal administration enact violence against minority populations. Examining and re-considering these structures, such as the criminal justice system (CJS), is a crucial part of anti-racist action….
Princeton’s Honor Code, tasked with holding students accountable and honest in academic settings, mirrors the criminal justice system in its rules and effects. It is harmful to the entirety of the Princeton community: the fear it instills in students fosters an environment of academic hostility. But it is often most damaging for first-generation low-income (FLI) students — students who also often belong to racial minorities.
If you have a strong stomach and are capable of laughing at outrageous lunacy, feel free to read it all. Otherwise, be content with this summary:
- Princeton’s Honor Code forbids cheating on examinations, essays, term papers, and laboratory reports. It specifies a procedure for investigating whether a violation has occurred, for a hearing on the matter, and for optional consultations with the dean of students.
- If a student is found to have committed a violation, he will face one of the following penalties:
- a reprimand,
- disciplinary probation,
- a suspension,
- a suspension with conditions,
- permanent expulsion.
- The student may appeal to the dean for reconsideration.
That’s all. The Honor Code does not cover any of the various penal offenses covered by the criminal code. It is concerned with academic honesty only, and all its penalties are academic in nature.
Many black and Hispanic students are admitted to colleges and universities under lower standards than those applied to whites. Yes, even at Ivy League Princeton. Now it seems that asking them to submit their own work, rather than someone else’s, is prejudicial. Could there be any stronger argument that black and Hispanic students can’t meet the standards imposed upon whites and Asians? Could Emily Santos’s demand that they not be held accountable for academic dishonesty be interpreted as anything but a demand that all such standards be erased?
“Social justice” has already ruined primary and secondary education. That’s why the majority of white-collar employers require a college degree from an applicant – in some cases regardless of the demands of the position applied for. Were “higher education to go in that direction, can anyone imagine what would follow?
Yet people call me a racist for saying that a single standard must apply to all. I’m sure those folks think well of themselves. But the damage they’re doing to the “minorities” whose causes they champion goes beyond my power to catch in a net of words.

Have a nice day.
