Princeton President Bends Over Backwards To Combat ‘Systemic Racism’

In an open letter to the professors, students, and faculty of Princeton University, President Christopher Eisgruber listed several proposals “to fight systemic racism in the world at large” and “within our own community.”

His ideas include creating a new degree program for “communities disproportionately affected by systemic racism,” “assemble a faculty that more closely reflects” the student makeup of the college, and “diversify Princeton’s postdoctoral researchers, lecturers, visiting faculty, and graduate students.”

His laundry list of ideas to bend over to the race-obsessed mob and fight racism that has for “too long damaged the lives of Black, Indigenous, and people of color, both at this University and in the United States more broadly” come after several paragraphs of apologies and woke-language to try to make Princeton sufficiently progressive for the current left-wing ideology.

“Princeton contributes to the world through teaching and research of unsurpassed quality, and we must continue to find ways to bring that mission to bear against racism, and against all of the discrimination that damages the lives of people of color,” he writes.

Interestingly, Princeton’s current student racial profile, according to College Factual, is 41.9 percent white, 21 percent Asian, and 10 percent Hispanic, and 7.6 percent Black. With Eisgruber’s promise to remake the school’s staff to resemble this racial make-up more, it may not be progressive to have a majority white staff.

Instead of encouraging students of different backgrounds that they can achieve and be anything they want in the Land of Opportunity, he says such students are “disproportionately affected by systemic racism and related forms of disadvantage.” Students being told they are behind and “disadvantaged” no matter their effort or drive, is an interesting message from the President.

Eisgruber, who made $970,900 in 2018 while the median Black salary in America that year was $41,511, apologized for the University’s past of excluding races and for the “systemic legacy of past decisions and policies.”

He failed to mention Princeton’s current usage of looking at race during the admission process as a factor—instead he proposes doing this for everything including faculty, lecturers, and even contract workers.

“We can and will provide central support and increased accountability to enhance Princeton’s diversity, but there are limits, including legal restrictions, to what we can do or require as we press ahead with initiatives to diversify the University,” he writes. “For example, we cannot reserve jobs or specific positions for members of underrepresented minority groups.”

To fight racism, he proposes, he will take race into account in almost every factor of the University, including, but certainly not limited to: student make-up, tenured faculty, graduate students, professional development, and even suppliers and contractors.

Whether the cancel culture mob will be pleased, is yet to be seen.

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation

In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.

The charges against Hunter Biden include:

• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm

• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer

•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance

According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.

Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.

The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.

Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.

Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
