Poor Kaitlyn Younger didn’t stand a chance.
A Wall Street Journal article recently profiled the young high school graduate, who despite a stellar academic record will be attending Arizona State University after receiving rejection letters from the Ivy League schools and some University of California flagships.
Kaitlyn Younger has been an academic standout since she started studying algebra in third grade.
She took her first advanced-placement course as a freshman, scored 1550 on her SATs as a junior at McKinney High School near Dallas and will graduate this spring with an unweighted 3.95 grade-point average and as the founder of the school’s accounting club. Along the way she performed in and directed about 30 plays, sang in the school choir, scored top marks on the tests she has so far taken for 11 advanced-placement classes, helped run a summer camp and held down a part-time job.
“She is extraordinary,” said Jeff Cranmore, her guidance counselor at McKinney High School.
Ms. Younger, 18 years old, was cautiously optimistic when she applied to top U.S. colleges last fall. Responses came this month: Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Brown, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, University of Southern California, University of California, Berkeley, and Northwestern all rejected her.
Poor Kaitlyn just didn’t get it. No doubt her parents raised her to work hard and try her best at everything. Almost certainly, she believed she lived in a meritocratic country where the most excellent would rise to the top and be rewarded.
Kaitlyn Younger applied to five Ivy League schools, plus Stanford and Berkeley, with a 1550 on her SAT. None accepted her.

Sadly, Kaitlyn is wrong. The meritocratic America is dead, and it’s now a husk replaced by a caste-based spoils system. And Kaitlyn, being a white, middle-class, probably heterosexual girl from a flyover state, is nearly at the bottom of this caste system. As Revolver described last year, Kaitlyn is a kulak:
The modern American regime is built on explicit, institutionalized hostility to the people who most resemble the great Americans of the past. It is anti-white, anti-male, anti-Christian, anti-rural, and anti-middle class. The more of these traits a person has, the more worthy of hate they become. … The white American middle class have become America’s kulaks — Blamed for every problem, vilified for every success, and deserving of every punishment. Their destruction has become a fundamental goal of American political life.
READ THE REST…
If Kaitlyn wanted to be rewarded by America’s elite institutions, she didn’t need to show excellence. What she needed to show was fealty. Instead of an accounting club, she should have founded a post-George Floyd racial justice movement. Instead of being presumptively straight, she needed to make LGBTQ+ a core part of her identity and at least call herself bisexual, like 12.5 percent of Harvard’s latest class.
But the single best thing Kaitlyn could have done to improve her admissions cycle was simply not be white. The only reason Kaitlyn is stuck at ASU, instead of being an auto-admit at the Ivy of her choice, is because of her skin color. For decades, in flagrant disregard for every principle of equality or judging humans as individuals, America’s elite colleges have systematically treated some races favorably, and others unfavorably, solely based on skin color. It’s not even in dispute.
Faced with such flagrant hatred from the elites who rule over her, the best thing Kaitlyn Younger could do is refuse to play such a rigged game. Younger, and all other kulak-Americans, should rebel against an unjust, discriminatory system by lying about their race whenever possible.
Last October, a poll made the rounds online. According to the poll, a full third of white people are already lying about their race on college applications, mostly by inventing bogus American Indian ancestry:
A survey from Intelligent found that 34 percent of white students who applied to colleges and universities falsely claimed they were a racial minority on their application.
The publication found that 81 percent of students who faked minority status did so to improve their chances of getting accepted. Fifty percent of students who lied said they did it to get minority-focused financial aid.
Most students, 48 percent, claimed to be Native American on their application. Thirteen percent falsely marked that they were Latino, while 10 percent falsely claimed to be Black. Nine percent of those surveyed lied that they were Asian or Pacific Islander.
The survey doesn’t pass the smell test for a variety of reasons. It’s almost certain that the number of whites lying about their heritage is far lower. Of course, progressives reacted hysterically to the survey.
“So many students of color face incredible challenges to accessing higher education, and it’s very sad that anyone would seek to lie in order to gain leverage in the admissions process,” University of Maryland education professor Julie Park complained to Insider.com.
Angel B. Pérez, CEO of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, told Inside Higher Ed that, actually, white students lying about their race shows showed the need for more “racial reckoning” against them.
“This data truly saddens me,” said Pérez. “The fact that students would believe they would be discriminated against for being white goes to show that we have a lot of work to do in this country around racial reckoning and understanding systemic inequality.”
Activist Rebecca Nagle freaked out that white Americans trying to evade discrimination was “worse than anyone thought.”
Ibram Kendi, possibly America’s single most-powerful (and dumbest) racial grievance grifter, hastily deleted a tweet about the study.
Despite all their anguish and rage, liberals admitted that there is almost nothing that can be done that would stop white students from gaining an advantage by reporting themselves as multiracial.
Inside Higher Ed contacted several schools, most of which admitted they do nothing to confirm an applicant’s claimed race. Jerome Lucido, an admissions expert at USC, lamely said that admissions workers could use “triangulation” to identify frauds. Emma Steele, a PR official with the Common App, simply warned that whites caught lying might be denied admission, but gave no indication about how any such lies would be detected.
And the reason, of course, is that with proper preparation, a lie never will be caught. America doesn’t have some centralized database of racial ancestry.
Everything about America’s unequal, anti-white discrimination regime depends on white Americans’ willful acquiescence. As Steve Sailer observed, America’s massive racial spoils system relies on its white victims playing by the honor system while serving as the country’s designated punching bag.
Affirmative action runs on an Honor System of self-identification by race, and American whites, with the exception of Liz Warren, tend to be remarkably honorable about not gaming the system. (In contrast, Brazilian whites cheat a lot.)

This system has to run on an honor system, because America’s racial categories are ad-hoc and phony, and often reshaped to justify a perpetual attack on America’s core heritage population.
For all of American history, Americans of Middle Eastern or North African (MENA in bureaucrat-speak) origin have been counted as Caucasian on the census. In 2020 they were scheduled to be broken off into an invented new MENA category, but the Trump administration ultimately blocked the move. Why? Because activists wanted to benefit from anti-white discrimination, rather than suffer from it:
For many Americans, checking the right box on the U.S. Census form is a reflexive gesture, whether it’s marking “black,” “white,” “Hispanic,” “Asian,” “American Indian” — or all of the above.
But for Americans of Middle Eastern and North African descent, or “MENA,” it’s a real head-scratcher. They come in a variety of phenotypes and shades—ranging from pale to deepest ebony, and hail from 22 different countries, from Iran to Egypt to Sudan. And yet, for the census, since the beginning of the last century, the MENA community has been lumped into the “white” category.
Back in 1909, such a designation made a lot of sense, but today, members of the MENA community are lobbying the U.S. Census to create a separate “MENA” category for the 2020 decennial count. “White,” they argue, renders them invisible in official population counts. Without correct data, advocates say, cities and states lack adequate resources to effectively handle everything from funding educational programs to battling infant mortality to tracking employment discrimination to staffing hospitals with enough Farsi translators. Census data directly impacts how more than $400 billion in federal funding is allocated across the country.
What’s more, some argue, being classified as “white” prohibits the MENA community from taking advantage of the benefits that come with minority status—including local, state and federal programs that give a leg up to minority-owned businesses in awarding government contracts.
Similar to the concept of “MENA,” the entire concept of “Hispanic” is basically a creation of the U.S. Census Bureau. When the Hispanic Society of America, a museum and research library, chose its name in 1904, the name signified its focus on Spain and Portugal, with virtually no interest in Spain’s former colonial holdings in the New World.
In early 20th century America, a hispano referred only to the Spanish-speakers of New Mexico. It was the Nixon Administration that changed everything in 1970, when it adopted the “Hispanic” label as a catch-all term for Americans whose origins ranged as widely as Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Iberian Peninsula. Asking Americans about “Central or South American” ancestry was so novel that some American residents of the central or southern United States checked the census box by mistake. “Hispanic” was only added as a census category in 1980.
What makes one a Hispanic? No particular racial ancestry is needed. One can be a black Hispanic, a Maya Hispanic, or a Jewish Hispanic. One can hail from Tijuana, Toledo, Havana, or Asuncion. There is no blood quantum necessary to qualify. A person of 100% “Hispanic” background may look like Montezuma or he may look like J. Robert Oppenheimer.
And yet, as useless as such a category is, there are real benefits to being in it. For example, simply being “Hispanic” means one can get into medical school with a far lower GPA or MCAT score.
Right now, you had better believe that people with a single Spanish great-grandfather are marking themselves as Hispanic on census forms and college applications. And if Kaitlyn Younger had been able to claim a single Spanish ancestor on her college application, she might be celebrating her admission to Yale right now.
Why does this category even exist, and why are so many people eager to join it? It’s obvious: Because everyone sees that boring ordinary “whites” are the bad group in America, and the quickest way to get a leg up is to hop to another group.
Last summer, Revolver published an exposé on the National Minority Supplier Development Council, one of many private organizations whose actual purpose is to control access to America’s racial spoils system. The NMSDC certifies businesses as authentically “minority-owned.” In affect, it awards literal “Race Cards” for businesses to play:
What’s one of the best ways to carve out a profit for oneself? Easy. Take advantage of America’s quiet love of affirmative action.
To get access to big government contracts and set-asides by major corporate actors, you need to be the right race. So, how is that decided?
For that, you can turn to a little known organization called the National Minority Supplier Development Council. The NMSDC’s goal is to help minority-owned businesses secure more business contracts, through relationships with both government and hundreds of major corporate partners, ranging from Facebook and Google, to Ford and GM, to Walmart and Coca-Cola.
How do you win a spot at NMSDC’s table? By convincing the organization’s officials that you deserve one of its coveted official Race Card™s to play for fun and profit. How does the NMSDC decide if you’re worthy of their coveted Race Card™? Simple: The group defines a minority as “an individual who is at least 25 percent Asian, Black, Hispanic or Native American.” To do that, one literally must submit a driver’s license, a passport, a birth certificate, or the birth certificate of one’s parent or child in order to prove one has the “right” racial group. And the NMSDC has a clear definition of who is right, and who is wrong…
After submitting one’s racial evidence, a business is subjected to an in-person visit by an NMSDC inspector, to make sure that the minority “owners” are really running day-to-day operations, and that the minority “owners” really look like minorities. If you live in New England, your eligibility to be classified as oppressed may be decided by someone like Peter Hurst, the surprisingly pale “black” CEO of NMSDC’s New England affiliate…
Why do you want to be certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)? Easy: Because right now, in supposedly “white supremacist” America, there are limitless opportunities to receive explicit racial preferences for your business as long as you are not a member of the wrong (i.e. white) race. Hundreds of corporations are on the hunt for “diverse” suppliers to hit diversity quotas, and any business with an MBE certification has permission to join the feeding frenzy.
READ THE REST…
As Revolver flagged at the time, many of the NMSDC’s race card winners were obviously almost wholly European in origin:
And you know what? Good for them. The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly guarantees the equal protection of the laws, and therefore prohibits treating Americans differently on the basis of race. But America’s ruling regime has nullified that clear constitutional provision, creating a new reality where wealth and titles and prizes are handed out solely based on what racial group one is sorted into.
The American Constitution, the Golden Rule, and common-sense morality all clearly call for equal treatment between racial groups. But the Globalist American Empire has chosen a very different moral code. It’s a code with a rigid hierarchy, where some races go at the top and others go at the bottom. It’s a code where, whenever the group at the bottom succeeds, it is always assumed to be due to exploitation and mistreatment of others. It is a racist code, no morally different from Jim Crow or India’s castes or the old Spanish casta tables.
Protesting America’s racial spoils system is necessary but ultimately inadequate. It is well past the time for this system and its managers to be undermined and humiliated. And the best way to do that is to stop playing along. Last year, after Evanston, Illinois became the first American city to explicitly adopt a system of racial “reparations,” we described the way forward for bringing the system down in a piece entitled, “Reparations Are Already Here — And There’s Only One Way To Respond”:
There is no honor in playing by the rules of an immoral unjust and illegitimate system — and make no mistake, that is just what we live under in the Globalist American Empire. A century ago, black Americans evaded the injustice of Jim Crow by “passing” as white. Today, America is reviving segregation and racism as an official part of government policy, and once again, “passing” and deception are perfect tools of resistance.
So go wild. When reparations come to your town or your institution, do everything you can to get a cut. When your children apply to college, shave their heads and give them a tan and claim they are proud of their partial African heritage.
If you can’t get away with that, claim Hispanic lineage from Mexico or, better yet, Central America. Hispanic isn’t even a real race, so literally anybody can qualify. So what if you can’t prove it? Most people don’t have detailed family trees. Your family lore says it’s true. If family lore was enough to launch Elizabeth Warren’s career, it’s good enough for you.
READ THE REST…
The Globalist American Empire feebly admits that it has no easy way to stop its victims from cheating. So cheat away. Undermine the system. Force it to rely on color palettes and DNA tests and skull measurements to enforce its racial castes. Right now, this corrupt, immoral, and decaying system is controlling America for free. Force it to fight. Odds are, it will simply break.
