It is hard to find humor in the officially sanctioned nativism of Arizona legislators and other white legislators targeting brown people, especially immigrants these days. But here is a “deprofiler” website that is “selling” white masks for folks to wear to avoid the “reasonable suspicion” clauses of anti-immigrant legislation. Now you can buy “a friendly white person’ face”:
What’s the big deal? Just buy a fake green card.
I did not post the “…big deal…” message. For the story behind this, and the shills who post nonsense of this sort, see this January 2010 “Wired” story: http://www.wired.com/magazine/2009/12/ff_fake_physics/
Wow. Thanks so much for that link – and all your work chasing down these diploma mills. In the “Wired” article, I noticed that cleverly disguised websites are part of how they perpetrate the diploma mill fraud (“…the domain suffix .edu does not guarantee authenticity.”) This is similar to a phenomenon I’ve written about called “cloaked sites,” more here:
I guess my question is why would someone post that comment using your name? Is it intended to discredit your work against the diploma mills?
Pure harassment. The person who is probably the source of the post is a disturbed fellow who goes after people who work on higher education quality assurance. He believes there should be no government oversight of higher education, and appears to become enraged at those who do. A sad fellow, but one who lashes out at others, rather than keeping his misery to himself.
