Yale Daily News‘ February 7, 2019, edition published an op/ed by “staff columnist” Isis Davis-Marks, urging fellow students to spy on their white male classmates so as to ruin their future careers.

Here is the op/ed in its entirety.

DAVIS-MARKS: Evil is Banal

Everyone knows a white boy with shiny brown hair and a saccharine smile that conceals his great ambitions. He could be in Grand Strategy or the Yale Political Union. Maybe he’s the editor-in-chief of the News. He takes his classes. He networks. And, when it comes time for graduation, he wins all the awards.

One day, I’ll turn on the television — or, who knows, maybe televisions will be obsolete by this point — and I’ll see him sitting down for his Senate confirmation hearing. Yes, he’ll be a bit older, with tiny wrinkles sprouting at the corners of his eyes and a couple of gray hairs jutting out of the top of his widow’s peak. But that smile, that characteristic saccharine smile, will remain the same.

When I’m watching the white boy — who is now a white man by this point — on CNN, I’ll remember a racist remark that he said, an unintentional utterance that he made when he had one drink too many at a frat party during sophomore year. I’ll recall a message that he accidentally left open on a computer when he forgot to log out of iMessage, where he likened a woman’s body to a particularly large animal. I’ll kick myself for forgetting to screenshot the evidence.

And, when I’m watching him smile that smile, I’ll think that I could have stopped it.

No, not everyone at Yale is evil. Not everyone is out to get you, and not every request to get a meal has an ulterior motive. But I’ve felt particularly introspective as graduation approaches. The Kavanaugh trial was months ago, but still has an indelible effect on me. Upon seeing the recent movie, Vice, the thought of my classmates’ future actions came to my mind again. I won’t get into the specifics of the movie here, but it discusses how certain foreign policy decisions made by the Bush administration endangered the lives of Iraqi citizens and made insurgency movements worse. Dick Cheney attended Yale for a time too, even if he didn’t actually graduate. It put the power of this institution into perspective, and led me to reckon with the fact that many of us will become extremely influential. Some of our peers will sit in war rooms with red buttons, capable of making life-or-death decisions in a split second. All of these things made me ask myself: What will the classmates who made those unintentional utterances, those subtle racist remarks, those assaults toward women, be doing on the eve of our 15th reunion?

Will they be high officials? CEOs of large companies? Presidents, even?

Probably. What is to be done about this situation? I’m not sure that the administration cares much about changing it. Surely, Yale needs rich — and notable — alumni to donate in order to keep the school afloat, but what do I know? I’m not in charge of the endowment. I don’t write the glossy pamphlets touting the seemingly countless resources that Yale has to offer.

This problem begins far before our classmates graduate, and we need to call them out on their transgressions — boldly and publicly. Anna Blech’s ’19 column on Daniel Tenreiro-Braschi ’19 was a good example of this. We should make instances of sexual assault and harassment public knowledge. Whisper networks, which are known as private chains of information which pass along knowledge of sexual assault, are useful, but insufficient in spreading information about indiscretions.

I think that we need to continue to call our classmates out, but it’s still not enough. After all, it wasn’t enough to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Note: The FBI’s investigations of Brett Kavanaugh found no evidence, none, to support Christine Blasey-Ford’s allegations. See also “Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell rips apart Christine Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh”.

To be honest, I’m not sure what the solution is. This expands beyond vocalizing problems about sexual assault: The core of this problem has to do with our values. The problem isn’t just the Yale administration; it’s Yale students. We allow things to skate by. We forget. We say, “No, he couldn’t have done that,” or, “But he’s so nice.” No questions are asked when our friends accept job offers from companies that manufacture weapons or contribute to gentrification in cities. We merely smile at them and wave as we walk across our residential college courtyards and do nothing. Thirty years later, we kick ourselves when it’s too late.

But I can’t do that anymore — I can’t let things slip by. I’m watching you, white boy. And this time, I’m taking the screenshot.

So, she claims everyone at Yale is not evil. Certainly she speaks not of herself!

Most of my life I lived and worked in and around Fairfield County, CT. I’m far away now in a state with constitutional carry. To be blunt, New Haven, CT is a $hit Hole. It used to be that the only safe area was the Yale Campus. Not so anymore, apparently. In 1890 the Superintendent of the US Naval War college was Capt. Alfred Thayer Mahan. His niche in history is that he authored a little book titled “The Influence of Seapower on History” which turned out to be very popular and influential within the ranks of professional naval officers.… Read more »

Watching the white boy because he made, in your opinion, a racist remark? Girl gonna be busy monitoring a lot of people…

What about all the black people who use the words nigga and nigger? Those who use cracker? Why do they get a pass?

Again, the left are never consistent with the application of their moral outrage and grievances.

What an idiot.
1 What is “a saccharine smile”
2 “When I’m watching the white boy — who is now a white man by this point — on CNN”
3 “The Kavanaugh trial” ? Does she mean confirmation hearing?
4 ” White Boy” ?

Maybe she can be AOC’s running mate.

Sounds to me like the ultimate expression of jealousy,…as if no one of any other race manifests their inherent sin nature.

These kinds of black people are mad because white people cant solve their problems for them. They can’t solve their own problems because they won’t change their culture of depending on government handouts and entitlements that keep them at poverty level generation after generation. Black people actually think they are “putting one over on the crackers” by taking all the government handouts they can get. They are so bent on sticking it to the white man by making the government support them with the white man’s taxes that it never occurs to them that the government will always tell them… Read more »

This could only work in a place and time where the young have been completely stripped of all morals and standards of behavior. For most of us this type of thing is shocking. For them? They don’t even raise an eyebrow.

If she really wants to go after YT, she should do her student journalist thingy, and go after those in the Skull and Bones club, located at one Yale University. Maybe she can sneak in to spy on a secret ceremony!

Today I witnessed a black male employee screaming at his supervisor for being disciplined. The employee had been repeatedly caught on his cellphone and not even doing the basics of his job. The supervisor was being polite to the screamer so I stopped to make sure the situation did not escalate to a physical confrontation. For my trouble I got called “Cracker Ass Motherfucker” among other choice words. Security was called to remove the idiot from the premises and I am sure he will be dismissed tomorrow by management. I walked the supervisor back to his office and made sure… Read more »

Behold, the face of the new “klan”, does this malevolent heterophobic, androphobic, vile racist comprehend that her mental illness and psychopathy are the same as those the klan deployed, and that she may as well be vying for the position of grand wizard? Possibly, but then she ignores her heart, it would seem, and a heart is required to care about something. No surprise this is also coming out of yale, with its gnostic “skull & bones” cult, its a vile school that rightfully should have been axed, and something actually useful made out of it’s bricks, well before the… Read more »
