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.

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world
China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.
Key findings of the report are below.
“Persuaded to return”
According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.
Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.
The Nine Forbidden Countries
China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.
According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
