I thought this was a joke when I heard it on the radio today, but I should’ve known better.
Today’s solar eclipse was… well, racist or something, according to a professor (what else?) at the Brooklyn Law School. Snopes.com rushed in to defend her (http://www.snopes.com/eclipse-racist/), pointing out that she never actually used the word “racist” in her essay (published in The Atlantic). The lefties at Snopes chided us dumb conservatives for not being able to understand such a clever and witty bit of intellectual drivel.
What she did say about the eclipse was that “along most of its path, there are almost no black people.” Huh? Why would you even bring that up? What possible significance could it have for anybody but a twit?
Would you say our intrallecturals are obsessed by race?
And people pay damned good money to have their sons and daughters “educated” by these dingbats.
