Talk:Carnegie Corporation of New York

This foundation was a massive supporter of Eugenics until 1939Edit

The article doesn't shows that this "philanthropic" instituion was, a massive supporter of eugenics , until 1939.

To include this in the article, you're going to have to list some reliable, third-party sources, please.--Gloriamarie (talk) 02:56, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Influence on biasing scientific developmentEdit

The Carnegie Corporation of New York like other similar organization have contributed largely to bias in our scientific knowledge. This bias comes from selection of projects and from indirect influence on the outcome of the scientific process. This all because of their huge funds directed towards the academic world and the lack funds under the direct control of scientists themselves. Scientists should not be dependent upon such organizations (and their ideals & goals) for the funding of projects that should be independent and done with no other goal then finding a complete and unbiased view of reality.

Founding and early yearsEdit

Which century does this mean to refer to? "more scientific assumptions that were coming to dominate social initiatives in the early part of this century"-Daeron (talk) 02:33, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Logo ChangeEdit

I have uploaded and changed the logo per this [1] request by Ronald Sexton who says they are a representative of the company. The logo is indeed the one used on their web site and other web presence so I saw no reason not to do as requested. JbhTalk 20:33, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

sorry not sorry, I whacked a bunch of PR speakEdit

I do not believe much information went with it but if someone disagrees we can of course discuss. I got here via a grant the corporation made back around the 1930s for "educational" movies for Bantu peoples. They sound like they might have been rather demeaning and definitely did promote colonialist forms of thinking about the people they supposedly were going to help. Relatively subtle dehumanization by the standards of colonialism in Africa, but nonetheless. This topic should probably be expanded, and there are very few actual facts in this corporatese word salad let alone any specifics about those movies.

Note to myself or anyone else who stumbles through here -- put that on a to-do somewhere. The very little I know about these movies comes from Cinema of Africa where it is mentioned in passing in the section on the colonial period. The linked wiki page says it also involved a missionary group. Since I am here I am going to try to finish a vigorous copy edit before I have to get up. If I have questions or any other comments I will put them below Elinruby (talk) 13:51, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
