Breaking News (from 3 days ago): Noah Carl's fellowship has been terminated, after months of investigation. Compared to some ~ other ~ investigations which have taken place in Cambridge University, this one was pretty brief. A very interesting nugget of the conclusions reached by the investigation, is that while it found that Carl should not have a fellowship, it also found that there was nothing wrong with the process which led to him being given the fellowship.
So, while it is wrong that a race scientist with appalling research credentials was given a fellowship, there is nothing wrong with the process by which the fellowship was given to him. In other words, bad things happen, but they do so out of pure accident, and there is nothing wrong with the system within which they happen. An interesting, hypothesis, for sure.
@garfiald did they even really have a process
@a_breakin_glass i mean, its worth remembering that tens of other academics probably applied for the same job and were turned down in favour of the self-published race scientist
@garfiald true. I'm wondering why exactly anyone would go for a race scientist who sucks this fucking obviously
@a_breakin_glass well the body in charge of appointing the fellowship is all white men, this much we know. the thing is that carl is (or rather, before this fellowship, was) all but entirely ostracised from the academic world, which is why he's publishing in the non-peer-reviewed journal which he is also the editor of. so idk tbh
