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.

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

  2. 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. Kaiser Wilhelm II, who reportedly kept a copy on his bedside table, ordered that the officers of his Kreigsmarine read it.
    One of the topics Mahan discussed was the concept of a ‘fleet in being’. This was the idea that just the possession of a large, powerful, efficient naval force was enough to secure a nation from the possibility of invasion and guarantee that the nation’s merchant shipping could go about its business without fear of foreign harassment. Mahan also said that the longer that a nation’s navy remains just a ‘fleet in being’ without ever going into action, the less and less effective it will be at keeping the peace. Someday, somebody will decide to take a chance.

    The Second Amendment to the US Constitution has been a ‘fleet in being’ for over two hundred years and those who it was meant to deter are becoming restless. It looks like the time is coming when it will be necessary to do something pour encourager les autres – big time.

  3. 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.

    • DCG . . . Excellent observations!

      I was sickened to read Ms Davis-Marks op-ed, for any number of reasons. When we look at the national stage and see that there are several black gentlemen who are currently in hot water for “sexual indiscretions,” I suppose that the hue and cry should also go out to white citizens to watch what the black brothers (and sisters) are about.

      This woman is a racist, plain and simple. It would be my fervent hope that this op-ed will hang about her neck as a rotting albatross for the next 50-60 years. I would hope that prospective employers will become aware of the fact that she is am racist and a very divisive person. Rather than being a positive addition to their staff–they can be assured that bitterness and dissension will follow her.

      It does no one any benefit to claim that all the ills of the black community are because of something that white folks have done. That is just plain baloney.

  4. 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.

    • YouKnowWho . . . Thank you for pointing out the most egregious and just plain dumb things she felt she needed to write!

  5. Kevin J Lankford

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

  6. 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 how much money they will receive every month and they will never receive more than that government wants them to receive. That’s called biting your nose to spite your face.
    Angry black people who are mad because no one, but mostly white people, will solve their problems for them.
    I was schooled in this by a smart and respected black person I have known for a number of years and am happy to call my friend.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

    • Jackie . . . What a wonderful idea! She would certainly be helping out everyone by doing an in depth investigation of the Skull & Bones members. No doubt about it.

  9. 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 he was ok. I never raised my voice or said anything during the confrontation but I fully expect to be turned in for being a racist. Such is life….

    • Watertender . . . God Bless you for caring enough to tend to the emotional needs of this particular Supervisor. I would caution you, please watch your back . . . we never know when people who act like this will “jump the track.”

      When employers have an experience of this nature . . . do you really think they want to be first up to hire the next black guy?????? I should imagine that the old adage kicks in . . . . “burnt once, twice shy.” So they these yahoos make a bad name for all members of their race . . . they are not only lazy and will not take care of doing the requirements of their job, but if they are called on it–they will verbally (and possibly physically) abuse you.

      This is truly a travesty–all the way around.

      • Auntie Lulu thank you for caring. I worked for many years in much worse places than my current place of employment. The supervisor is in a different department but I happened upon the scene while doing my job. I work alone in a secure area for the most part and when I am out of my area I am aware of my surroundings. I got a call today to confirm what I had witnessed. The employee has been terminated and has no idea of my department or function so I am safe.
        This is not the 1st time I have dealt with something like this so I am not new to a situation escalating. I was a supervisor for 10 years at a previous job and never let my employees scream at me. The 3rd day I was on that job one of my workers went off on me…. I looked him straight in the face and made him leave my office. I told him when he could speak to me in a civil tone that I would talk to him. I also made it very clear that I would never be talked to like that again. He was just promoted to a supervisory position at another facility and called to thank me for showing him how to handle a problem…

        • Water:

          Is it your impression that your workplace environment, i.e., civility, manners and interpersonal relations, has degenerated? And if so, can you date the decline to x number of years ago?

          • Dr. Eowyn I can tell you when it really started to decline… Election Day 2008…. I was working the overnight shift into the next day which was November 5th 2008…
            In a previous job that I held from 1990 to 2005 there was some discord from Union Stiffs and Labor Fakers. For the most part there was civility except from some of the people we were providing service for… There were some of them that you could give a free steak dinner and they would cry about the cut of the meat…
            Anyhow on election night 2008 there were multiple disturbances at the facility I was working at that were covered up and not generally reported to the media. This included breaking of windows, trashing of common areas, discharge of fire extinguishers and multiple fire alarms being pulled.
            The next day a minority employee from another department got in my face when I requested assistance from their supervisor… I got the typical “Cracker” routine from him and nothing was done by management about it. That moment sticks in my mind from the timing of it…. Under Obama race relations deteriorated and have just gotten worse since his election….

    • Watertender, Good job, the spoiled brat hopefully will learn from the experience, they probably won’t, realistically speaking, but I would hope they would, that they would cease being a spoiled brat, and stop using their race as some kind of justification for their bad behavior. They’ve got to learn to take responsibility for their actions, and exercise self-control.

      Good is always worth doing.

  10. 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 ivy could grow on it’s walls. Has anything good ever come out of an “ivy league” school?
