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.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
