The Faces of American Power are Mostly White

Nice, I see my girl Indra Nooyi on the list.  And BTW,  I have no problem with any of these people holding power in America.  Consider the alternative and America probably won't be as powerful as it is.  These are not lazy people.  They are the best and the brightest and if they happen to be white then so be it!!!

I am convinced you are an abject moron....what do you mean by consider the alternative? The alternative was jim crow. Do you think we would get more relevant programming if there were minorities in the room of TV studios? How about the movies? Those are the whitest not the best and the brightest...and they are also white men!!

Who is talking about tv and movies????  Look at the topic of this thread and then read the article.

Here again you are as shallow as a pond. That was an example. Do you think we would be better off with a leadership that reflected the people in all areas of life? That the best and the brightest makes it to these seats of power is a belief wrought of  pure ignorance from daft people like you.

The rise to power is not a democratic event.  Many of the people on these lists are from private industry where they climbed the corporate ladder based on their intellectual abilities.

You are right in one of your statements. Democracy has little to do with the rise of the one percent.  The shift of 2 trillion dollars to this group in the last financial crash was indeed not democratic.

These people's ancestors came to America long before you.  They accumulated wealth a long time ago.  Many of them walked through the doors of Harvard and Yale and got the best education.  Indra Nooyi worked hard just like them.  She got the best education and it looks she got some good "sahayak" genes to go along with it.  She also has a husband who is very supportive of her career and he made sure she took advantage of her opportunity.  She never fails to give her husband credit for her success.  Last year her salary was over 20 million.  Don't be jealous.  Go out there and rich too!!

Responses to you are to the depth that's worthy of you!!  You notice how much time you spend responding and trying to denigrate those "shallow ponds".

So what? Go and get truly educated on the rise of the american industrialist. Harvard and Yale did not rise whole from the heads of Zeus and become the standard bearers they are. Like our Queens college they were the academies of the privileged class to perpetuate the privileged class and still do so to some extent.  Do not select the one or two who make it as the measure of how the rest  got there. White privileged is real and the legacy of blue bloods get morons on the up tract to the board rooms more than smarts.  And why would I be jealous? As I said you do not know me or where I got my education.  I can see why you like that boorish Trump.

Is this a worthy response? There is a complete disconnect between the likes of you, her and some others here about the engine of America. For every one of those privileged squatters by class on the board room of America there are ten thousand people geniuses doing the job.  Real ingenuity lies in the masses of Americans doing the hard work

 

Above that idiot child commented that "they were here before me" yes they were and native people were here before them. History is not an evolutionary tree perfecting good people. It is a path taken often by horrible bestial crooks and it is left for the conscience of the ordinary man to give the reality that emerges a soul. Note no one in the world knew the name of any english man prior to the 5 century AD. We have names from other cultures going back 4 thousand years. Yet those very english people conquered the world! Were they brighter than others? You can judge for yourself.

Trump is not a lazy man.  He has a good Wharton education and he knows how to create opportunities for himself.  Some of us have a "pity me" mentality and we blame others for our failure.  We think that successful people are bad people.  Jagdeo was president of a country for 11 years and when he build a nice house many people were Pi$$ing their pants.  And he did not go to Queens College or any blue blood institution.  He worked very hard, endured sleepless nights,  and took a lot of insults from the jealous ones.  Yet he endured and still remains loyal to his cause.

Here you go again incessantly with the same shit with no profundity as though your thinking skimps reality and locates itself in places you identify as having status. Trump is a bore. His life is an example of grinding the small man into dust for his grandiose elitist notions of success. I do not know he ever built or funded a better product for the ordinary man. His brand caters to the excesses of the slothful rich.

The Scots have a documentary out tracking his handling of those villagers as he build his golf course. He treated them as dirt because he had access. Wharton is undoubtedly a good school but he is not a good man. Do not equate the two. Also, america always get it right. On that account alone I know he will never be our president.

Similarly Jagdeo is a shallow corrupt, vindictive man who states by of fakery and deceit. As you noted, he was thrust upon us by Mrs J and to her credit is our ruin. I doubt a fair minded poll of party members would not have delivered that quack. Maybe some habituation to formal education at Queens would have done more to providing a moral foundation for him than Lumumba U where the only care to mint proper communist. How good is communist economist for us?

And get the term jealous from your workable vocabulary. It prohibits a grasp of analysis when offered since it is a convenient lazy fall back term for your laziness to ignore it. The fact remains he was piss poor...spent 12 years working for a salary of a mickydees line cook and yet he is a mega millionaire. Does the term obscene crook breaches the dull dead fish eyed state that is presently the condition of your information acquisition faculties?

Listen don't get me wrong, I am not putting down the poor man.  Not everyone has the same ability.  People are dealt bad cards like death in the family, illness, divorce, etc.  and they have to forego opportunities.  What I am saying is we should select the best and the brightest to be CEOs, world leaders, etc.  

Look what is going on in Guyana right now.  You all put in a mediocre government and all they can do is sleep on the job and spend the money the PPP left in the treasury.  What good does that do the Guyanese people?

As to Jagdeo, I know nuff QC people who can't hold a candle to him.  They may have gone to a better school.  But are they willing to make the sacrifice and pay the price that he did?  The answer to that is a resounding NO.

The best is not mainly white men. That is a statistical impossibility. They stack the deck.

What is going on in Guyana right now is obscured by your bias. The formal training and intellectual output of any of the PNCite stacked up against those in the PPP are not significant. I do not know the geniuses of our land concentrate in the PPP.

Talking about Jagdeo and sacrifice is  obscene. He is the PPP gifted horse and indeed from its belly came the hordes of pillagers.

At least you did learn something from this exchange. Smart people do not have to come from an elite school.

I am done with this. You bore me.

Now make some sense. Are native  people deficient in steroids that you should demand a test for it? I hate to resort to calling you a bit slow in the head but you have been making too many silly mistakes of late.

If you see how the Pepsi woman speaks to her felllow Indians during her tour of India you would think twice about saying she is your girl.

This is utter nonsense. Indra Nooyi was trained by the best career coaches in the world.  She has a good self image. She knows how to behave in a professional manner and she would not risk poor behavior in public.  She did not become CEO of Pepsi because she is a stupid person.

It's sad and disgusting how some of you people go after successful people. Always ready to spread lies and tarnish people's image.

You are as daft as she is if you believe that because the board rooms and other avenues of power are lily white  it is because these are the best and the brightest being sifted out by some fair mechanism. Why should I consider the opinions of nitwits? The conclusion that the above is not the case is a universal conclusion. Intersectionality theory for example serves to explain this very well. You and her just let your bigotry mediate your reality. She has the ignorant gall to say " Consider the alternative and America probably won't be as powerful as it is"!!!!

Just 50 years ago women were not in administrative positions anywhere. They could not get credit and some of our elite schools would not accept them. I think Columbia was among these. Step back another few years and you or here would not be in at your jobs and would have to look for the colored restrooms and water dispensers etc.  As I said,  you bigots think America has magically become multicultural and magically measures all things on merit. We are still a long way to be in a post sexist, post racial world.

50 years ago a "sahayek" woman named Indira Ghandi became the Prime Minister of India.

In 1969, Benazir Bhutto was a student at Harvard University at the age of 16.  She later attended Oxford University and then in 1988 became the Prime Minister of Pakistan at the age of 35.

What does that have to do with what I stated? My motherinlaw, a black woman, went to Radcliffe  but does that negate what I am saying or your opinion that those old white men in the senate, in congress, heading the movie studios, on wall street are the best America has to offer and got there by a sifting out process?

Congratulations to your mother-in-law.  I am assuming she is not Guyanese, because if she is then we need to record that in our history books.  I once met a black woman who is a cousin of Viola Burnham who went to graduate school at Columbia University in the 1950s as a single mom.  I forgot her first name now but her last name is Lewis.

But Indians have no choice but to bow down or face the unemployment line like a million other indians.

Apparently speaking the obvious seems to make one a bigot. Don't blame the messenger,  see for yourself. Even Justice Scalia recognized the lesser intellectual performance of Blacks, suggesting that they would do better in lower track schools.  

No doubt Blacks have paved the way for the rest of us, however this is not the issue, paving the way via protest and sacrifice and leadership roles in business are two different skill sets. Blacks have reaped a windfall in entertainment and sports but have consistently lagged behind in academics. I am not here to address the reason but rather to state the statistics.
