New York University has reportedly been awarded over $40,000 by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to research why children “favor whiteness and maleness over other identities.”
According to Fox News , the project is titled, “Societal assumptions regarding typical personhood and their effects on reasoning development.” The project seeks to study the developmental processes in which children “acquire the belief that White males represent the default person – a pattern rooted in the ideologies of androcentrism (centering the experiences of men) and ethnocentrism (centering the experiences of White people) prevalent in the United States,” according to a project summary on USASpending.gov .
HHS awarded the university a total of $40,391 for the project back in February, which will run through January 31 of 2025.
“Despite national rises and racial and gender diversity, White men remain vastly overrepresented across a host of domains within the U.S., from media, to politics, to clinical research,” states the project description. “Such overrepresentation poses severe costs to the rest of society – women of all races , men of color , and gender-nonconforming individuals – particularly within the domain of health, where clinical trials have historically prioritized the experiences, perspectives, and health outcomes of White men.”
The description continued on to state that must be understood “when and how the tendency to view white males as default people develops across childhood, as well as the environmental factors that underlie this phenomenon.”
“Specifically, we need to know (A) the developmental trajectory by which children’s default representations of people begin to favor whiteness and maleness over other identities, (B) the specific domains across which children do (and do not) activate a white male default to guide social reasoning, and (C) the sociocultural and ecological factors that can prevent the development of these beliefs,” the project summary stated.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
