Some day, a monument will be erected to the sociologist hiding under the pseudonym La Griffe du Lion. When people of the future will look back at our times, they will say that those were times of intellectual terror and oppression, a time when original thinkers like La Griffe lived in fear of being "outed" and punished by society, a time when vile antisemites like Kevin MacDonald had no worries and published their venom under their own name.
In 1999, ten years ago, La Griffe modeled the effect of Affirmative Action to the American Economy, and showed that "on average a black worker between the ages of 25 and 64 earns an extra $9,400 a year because of affirmative action. Hispanics also benefit to the tune of almost $4,000 a year. However, being a zero-sum game, white workers pay an average of about $1,900 annually to foot the bill." Those were 1999 dollars, and not the worthless 2009 dollars, and he was talking of the 1999 Affirmative Action, not the current Barack Obama version of the same thing. It would be a valuable exercise to recalculate La Griffe's 1999 model, and compare how American society evolved in only ten years.
Re-reading his ten years old paper, I suspect that La Griffe observed first the White Displacement phenomenon. He wrote:
The net displacement of whites by minorities is not uniformly spread across the quintiles. When high-earning whites are displaced down the employment ladder, they displace other whites downward by exerting pressure on the rung below. The effect is like a cascade. At the bottom there is no rung left. Low IQ whites, who in an affirmative action-free marketplace would be competitive in the $10,000 to $20,000 bracket, now pile up in the lowest-income quintile. Although affirmative action affects every white, the largest number affected are the least intelligent and competitive.(La Griffe's secret identity is safe with me till the time comes to erect his bust in the campus. He may even be an ethnic Hungarian Jew, if not, I hereby promote him to that rank, the highest in Kever Benjamin City :-)
