UK: Lawyer’s Exam May Scrap Writing Section to Help Non-White Candidates

The bigotry of low expectations.

Published

on

The body that regulates lawyers in in England and Wales could be about to scrap the writing section of an exam for future solicitors and replace it with multiple choice questions because it discriminates against ethnic minorities compared with white candidates.

In other words, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is implying that non-white people can’t read or write properly and therefore should be exempt from this task so they they are not “disadvantaged” in comparison to white applicants.

Has there ever been a more flagrant example of the bigotry of low expectations?

“SQE1 – which candidates must pass before taking SQE2 – was due to contain a multiple-choice legal knowledge test and a written skills test,” reports the Law Gazette. “At a press briefing yesterday however, the SRA announced that it is considering scrapping the skills section. This would leave only the multiple-choice question paper.”

“An independent review found the written skills assessment ‘raised significant concerns about reliability, fairness and standard setting’. The pilot suggested that black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) candidates, for example, were disadvantaged compared with white candidates even when their performance in the multiple-choice test was taken into account, according to the review.”

Satirical social justice activist Titania McGrath (a Twitter account run by comedian Andrew Doyle) commented on the matter, remarking, “Thrilled to see that the written part of the solicitors exam is to be replaced with multiple choice to support minority candidates. The assumption that ethnic people who want to work in law should be able to read and write is about as racist as it gets.”

Respondents to the Law Gazette article expressed their amazement that future lawyers might be given a pass from having to complete the written part of the exam simply because of their skin color.

“Am I missing something here?” asked one. “How on earth are people of whatever race, colour creed etc supposed to be able to provide legal advice of the caliber required of us by the SRA, the Ombudsman and our insurers if their grasp of the English language is insufficient for them to be able to read the case law, commentary and legal texts required to pass the exams – or is that no longer necessary?”

“Do the powers that be not realise just how patronising and racist they are? Why on earth should they assume that BAME candidates can’t cope with a level playing field? It’s just wrong, wrong, wrong,” commented another.

Talk about a race to the bottom.

The Truth About Greta

She wants you to panic.

Published

Greta is just a human shield for the real agenda of the people who pull her strings.

Neo-feudalism disguised as environmentalism. The raw lust for power and control disguised as right-on hipster activism.

CNN Analyst: White Republican Men Are ‘Greatest Terrorist Threat’ In US

Published

Triggered by the word ‘hijacking’

CNN Analyst Angela Rye told a Republican strategist on air this week that ‘the greatest terrorist threat’ in the US are white men who think like he does.

GOP campaign strategist Patrick Griffin argued that the so called “Squad” of Democrats, including Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has “hijacked” the Democratic Party.

“It’s so interesting that you use the term — the only two Muslim women in Congress, the term you chose to use, sir, is ‘hijacking,’” Rye, the former Congressional Black Caucus executive director, ridiculously responded.

“It has nothing to do with whether they’re Muslim or not,” Griffin hit back, “Nothing to do with that… They’ve hijacked from their own principles.”

“That’s a real interesting word choice, and you understand why,” Rye continued, insisting that Griffin used the term to connect the Democrats to terrorists.

“You can talk over me all you want to but the bottom line is the greatest terrorist threat in this country is white men, white men who think like you. That is the greatest terrorist threat in this country.” Rye blurted.

Griffin described Rye’s remarks as “silly rhetoric.”

“No, it’s not!” Rye responded.

“You know what’s silly? The fact that you’re on here knowing how dangerous times are right now defending this nonsense.” she added.

CNN, bringing the nuanced debate as usual.

Staunch Environmentalists Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Take 4 Private Jet Trips in 11 Days

While having only 2 kids to ‘save the planet’.

Published

on

Despite announcing that they would only have two children in order to help reduce CO2 emissions, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have taken 4 private jet trips in just 11 days.

The royal recently told ethnologist Jane Goodall that the couple would only have “two, maximum” kids as a sign of their commitment to environmentalism.

“How many clues does nature have to give us before we actually learn, or wake ourselves up to the damage and the destruction that we’re causing?” asked Harry during the interview.

Such concerns don’t appear to extend to the Prince’s own immediate private life.

As the Daily Mail points out, Harry and Meghan just took their fourth gas-guzzling private jet flight in 11 days.

“Prince Harry and Meghan, who have been outspoken on environmental issues in recent months, generated an estimated seven times the emissions per person compared to a commercial flight when flying home from Nice,” reports the Mail.

The couple had only arrived in France three days earlier to visit Elton John’s $18 million mansion.

Before that they had traveled by private jet to Ibiza, generating, “12.5 tons of carbon dioxide per person, an amount of pollution that would take 14 commercial flights to emit,” reports Breitbart.

Prince Harry also recently attended a Google-organized event in Italy to discuss ‘global warming’. Many celebrities flew private to the event from Los Angeles, generating hundreds of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions in the process.

Just as with almost every virtue signalling mega-rich environmentalist, it’s very much a case of do as we say, not as we do.
