Steve Sailer recently posted a couple pieces (here and here) about Skull & Bones, the secret society at Yale, which got me to thinking about the 2009 exposé at Gawker. While the popular imagination envisions what Skull & Bones once was — well-dressed, well-mannered WASP males — the reality of Skull & Bones today is entirely different. After all, in recent years, Skull & Bones has become co-ed and multicultural. Here is what Skull & Bones is today. Seriously, you’ve got to look at these photos of a 2008 Skull & Bones party at the Skull & Bones compound on Deer Island. I don’t know what photo I like the best: the Asian & mulatto doing shots together, the Asian & mulatto doing some sort of crip-walk / jungle dance, or the black woman jumping / dancing on the furniture.
Whatever problems America’s old WASP elite might have had (before they were replaced by an Ashkenazi elite), at least the WASP elite was biologically representative of America’s founding stock and sympathetic to its preservation, as evidenced by the Immigration Act of 1924. It seems that the Ashkenazis now are giving way to new Third World hipsters, although the latter’s arrival could be at the expense of remaining WASPs and not Ashkenazis (as in Ivy League admissions). Still, if Skull & Bones is a microcosm of America’s new coming elite, God help us all. However, don’t let reality prevent the popular imagination from envisioning Skull & Bones as well-mannered WASP males, since secretly and aesthetically this is what the popular imagination truly desires.
In other news, UCLA drops Shakespeare and Chaucer requirement for English majors. Maybe students can just watch Univision in place of Shakespeare and Chaucer. Idiocracy cometh.
