Scientists Feel the Effects of Woke Culture’s New Racism
The woke culture has so penetrated every element of our society that not even science is safe from its effects.
Scientists were given the opportunity to receive a prestigious award, but that opportunity was quickly stolen from them.
So what happened? What did they do wrong that made them unworthy of the award? They were guilty of being white men.
The Daily Wire reported,
Scientific American reported that “five of the nation’s top ice scientists” were supposed to review peer-nominated candidates for the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) fellows program, but after seeing that all the nominees were white and male, the committee decided not to move them forward.
One of the five members of the panel, Scripps Institution of Oceanography glaciologist Helen Fricker, said the revelation that the nominees were all white men “was kind of a bit of a showstopper for me.”
Fricker admitted to the outlet in an interview that she was placed on the review panel because she had previously complained about a lack of diversity.
“One of the reasons I was put on the committee was because I’d been quite vocal about the year that I’d been a fellow, I was very much in the minority, and we needed to do better and get more women,” she said.
Why is it so hard to accept the fact that maybe only white men were deserving of the particular reward, especially in a profession that is majority white males?
You can’t get upset about a minority
What was the criteria by which these individuals were chosen? Was it based on their merits? If they were chosen without taking their “race” into consideration, then what is the problem?
This just goes to show the sickness that is infecting our country when they really don’t care about being the best at something or being the best person for something, they just want it to be “equal”.
