IMPORTANT THOUGHTS ON NERDS AND WHITENESS from Tom Maguire.
UPDATE: Related post here. Excerpt: “The article does not mention the true common characteristic of nerds: they are numerate, i.e. conversant in the language of mathematics – an odd omission for a linguist. This omission can be explained by the fact that Berkeley-style multi-culturalism is threatened by numeracy, the development of which is the hallmark of Western Civilization and the historical wellspring of western economic and military success. Consequently, it is incumbent on multi-culturalists to discredit whenever and wherever possible those who are numerate.” Ouch.
