hmm. my university gave a research fellowship to a race scientist. very cool

love too be taught by someone that wants me dead

Hey, you know what, this guy looks like he has a lot of publications, lets check them out--- OwO what's this

also, the article thats hilariously called "A Global Analysis of Islamist Terrorism"? zero citations

so yeah the £9,000 pounds a year that im paying are now directly funding attempts to prove that I'm genetically inferior. pretty epic

Breaking News (from 3 days ago): Noah Carl's fellowship has been terminated, after months of investigation. Compared to some ~ other ~ investigations which have taken place in Cambridge University, this one was pretty brief. A very interesting nugget of the conclusions reached by the investigation, is that while it found that Carl should not have a fellowship, it also found that there was nothing wrong with the process which led to him being given the fellowship.

So, while it is wrong that a race scientist with appalling research credentials was given a fellowship, there is nothing wrong with the process by which the fellowship was given to him. In other words, bad things happen, but they do so out of pure accident, and there is nothing wrong with the system within which they happen. An interesting, hypothesis, for sure.

@a_breakin_glass i mean, its worth remembering that tens of other academics probably applied for the same job and were turned down in favour of the self-published race scientist

@garfiald true. I'm wondering why exactly anyone would go for a race scientist who sucks this fucking obviously

@a_breakin_glass @garfiald Maybe it was the "variety in the marketplace of ideas" crowd having their heads so deeply up their asses they didn't notice they were hiring a crackpot. That's the most charitable interpretation I can muster.
