More Studies Retracted: Surprised?
A professor has been fired for faking data on racism studies in the United States.
The problem of Ivory Tower elitists faking data is not new. It happens so often I can’t possibly write an article each time it gets found out. But I have a few articles addressing unique cases, such as this one: The Life Of A Leftist PhD: Making Fraudulent Data.
Well, it happened again. This new story is especially interesting because of the race connotation.

Professor fired for ‘faking data to prove lynching makes whites want longer sentences for blacks,’ 6 studies retracted
Florida State University criminology professor Eric Stewart was a guru of the claim that “systemic racism” infests America’s police and American society.
Now he’s out of a job on account of “extreme negligence” in his research.
The academic was fired after almost 20 years of his data — including figures used in an explosive study, which claimed the legacy of lynchings made whites perceive blacks as criminals, and that the problem was worse among conservatives — were found to be in question.
College authorities said he was being fired for “incompetence” and “false results.”
Among the studies he has had to retract were claims that whites wanted longer sentences for blacks and Latinos.
To date, six of Stewart’s articles published in major academic journals like Criminology and Law and Society Review between 2003 and 2019 have been fully retracted after allegations the professor’s data was fake or so badly flawed it should not have been published.
The professor’s termination came four years after his former graduate student Justin Pickett blew the whistle on his research.
It was a black professor. The ethical graduate student that exposed him is white. Typical case of white-on-black violence right there. I’m sure the professor is frantically writing a new study about the racist undertones and disproportionality of whites reporting black liars right now.
Joking aside, this is why you should not innately trust scientism, experts, or the intelligentsia. There are too many liars and frauds to know what to trust and what to doubt blindly. Be skeptical of all things.
It really makes you wonder how much modern research is completely fake, after all. You hear countless studies about researchers just completely making up their own data to then “analyze”. There are few safeguards against this; all the Ivory Towerites are nutcase leftists who want to push the same agenda. They won’t often call it out or do true peer review processes.
I don’t know how much of it is fake, but I know probably around 50%, if not higher.
Which means that if you trust the science with zero validation, you’re literally trusting a coin toss.
