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.

They Will Learn to Love Their Servitude

The great reset.

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

Playstation Says it Will Enable Voice Chats to be Recorded So Players Can be Snitched on for Mean Words

Enforcing “social justice in gaming” by tattling on your private conversations.

Published

Sony has announced that it will allow Playstation users to record in-game voice chats so players can snitch on each other for mean words said during private conversations.

Yes, really.

The game console’s latest update forces users to waive their privacy rights, allowing others to report them and get their accounts banned for speech violations.

“Following this update, users are seeing a notification about Party Safety and that voice chats in parties may be recorded,” Sony announced. “Voice chat recording for moderation is a feature that will be available on PS5 when it launches, and will enable users to record their voice chats on PS5 and submit them for moderation review. The pop up you’re seeing on PS4 right now is to let you know that when you participate in a chat with a PS5 user (post-launch), they may submit those recordings from their PS5 console to SIE.”

“If a group of friends want to make off color jokes to each other privately, talk about freaky stuff or sexual content then that’s their business,” complained one Twitter user.

Sony claims the update is necessary to enforce “safety and moderation” standards and prevent harassment, yet the actual agenda is obviously to police political speech and prevent criticism of far-left groups like Black Lives Matter.

As Chris Menahan notes, “The move comes just a few months after PlayStation partnered with the Anti-Defamation League — a leftist group which advocates for online censorship and hate speech laws in the name of stopping “the defamation of the Jewish people” — to pressure Mark Zuckerberg to ramp up censorship on Facebook.”

EA Sports also teamed up with the ADL to “enforce social justice in gaming,” another example of how Marxist social engineering is being inserted into every form of entertainment imaginable.

Company Offering ‘Portable Pod’ For Travelers Concerned About Catching COVID

Product caters for those who live in “fear of going out.”

Published

on

NY Post/ViraShield

A company called ViraShield has developed what it calls a “portable pod solution” that caters for people who have “fear of going out” in the age of coronavirus.

“In a matter of seconds, the ViraShield unfolds to give users a protective, six-sided barrier between them and their seatmates,” states a promo for the contraption on the New York Post shopping website.

“This 360-degree protection helps keep bacteria in droplets at bay, so that the next time someone around you coughs or sneezes, you won’t be directly exposed to the particles.”

The product appears to be some kind of personalized transparent tent for the upper body. The image for it shows a woman sitting on a plane seat surrounded by the pod.

“It even allows you to insert an oxygen mask or cover a tray table when you’re flying,” states the promo, adding that the pod can be adjusted for different protection levels.

Numerous different companies have responded to the COVID pandemic by offering pods, upper body visors, or even dog cone-style contraptions.

Back in August, the Governor of Maine ordered restaurant staff to wear anti-COVID visors upside down in order to direct breath upwards, despite concerns this would trap infectious particles in air conditioning units.

Toronto-based Protective Personal Equipment firm VYZR Technologies also revealed it had received 50,000 pre-orders for a portable head pod that looks something like an astronaut would wear.

Sophisticated post-pandemic pods have also been designed for use in offices, in addition to dining pods for restaurants.

A video out of Argentina also showed a couple happily wearing entire upper body visors while walking down the streets to protect against coronavirus.

As we previously highlighted, an illustration of life in 2022 by an Italian magazine first published in 1962 depicted pedestrians using motorized pods instead of walking.

As we discuss in the video below, pods are yet another expression of how people are becoming increasingly atomized as society moves towards a “new normal” that resembles a futuristic dystopian movie.
