Just for transparency, what did Tate say or publish about racial inequality in Math?

My vote is for the weather guy, but I'd like to see what Tate said.


Inequity, non inequality.

And there are a lot of themes in his research, which is all essentially race-based. One of the ones that is particularly troublesome is his theory that performance in math is correlated to geography and if we force integrate neighborhoods, one method of which would be expansion of public housing in affluent areas (e.g. Section 8), the black kids will become better at math.

His entire career is based on the idea that we need to provide extra advantages to minorities in every facet of life for them to succeed in STEM. He focuses a lot of that on just mathematics too. It is affirmative action of steroids. It is essentially reparations in the form of giving minorities more advantages than white students.

It is pure racism to me.

Done. The alma mater has done a lot of things to lose my support lately but hiring Tate would be the last straw.

No extrapolate this to how he would lead a university. LSU has already seen academic rankings plummet while the drive has been on increasing diversity and bragging about our "most diverse class in history" I fully believe Tate would make it his mission to ensure minorities are given more just for being a minority.

The craziest thing is I don't think this is a secret, he would openly say this and expect to be patted on the back for it.

The guy in charge of the search committee is looking for just this. He's a piece of shite himself. They are single-issue focused on this hire and it is terrifying. Nothing else matters besides forced diversity, even at the expense of fairness and tradition.

It is really fricking sad.

Tate's ultimate mission is to get LSU admission into the SWAC.

I'm sure James Williams would love that too.

We put a personal injury lawyer who puts "Esq." in his name to lead the fricking search committee to pick LSU's system president.

Think about that shite.

One of his most high profile cases:

In 2014, Williams represented Dorian Johnson who was with Michael Brown when he was killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri.

Y’all voted for that wackadoodle in the governors office. Now y’all surprised it’s filtered down to LSU?

I quit giving them money a while back.

If Tate is selected, I will never donate another penny to this university ever again. The fact that "Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion" is the first area that I am being asked to rate a candidate says a lot about why the university is in the current death spiral that it is. I stopped right there. He would be a disastrous choice.

Tate is also under scrutiny at USCe for his handling of Title IX cases there.. The students are hammering him for not removing accused faculty

What a world where anyone with a sociology degree can get into a position of leadership. It’s such a useless field.

re: LSU alumni and supporters, please take this survey regarding the new President
This survey reeks of LSU trying to feel out the crowd for pushback before making an unpopular decision. Politicians do it all the time.

And i wouldnt put anything past the idiots leading LSU right now, theyve been doubling down on the SJW crap for several years now.

BoS meeting tomorrow is not secret. You can watch it online. You can also watch interviews with the final three candidates with various system entities. Tate's doing one live right now.
