Princeton: Racist Hell-Hole?

Four faculty members recognized for outstanding teaching

While their KKK robes were at the laundry

If you want idiocy, you’ll find it growing wild and free on any college campus. Princeton, for instance.

Two hundred Princeton faculty members have signed a petition demanding that university authorities confess/admit/acknowledge that “Racism thrives on campus” (https://diverseeducation.com/article/183161/).

What? The place is Racist even with you 200 jidrools running loose, in charge of educating da yout’? Doesn’t say much for your instruction, does it? I mean, really, with 200 of you yapping about “racial justice,” how come Princeton doesn’t have racial justice? Fell down on the job, did you?

One of the things Princeton can do to achieve Racial Justice, sez the petition, is “remove questions about misdemeanors and felony convictions from admissions applications,” because of course you should only be in jail for misgendering or climate change denial and locking you up for armed robbery or aggravated assault–well, that’s just Racist, and predatory policing.

Do they think they can’t fill their desired quota of Persons Of Color unless they bring in thugs and criminals, because there aren’t that many Persons Of Color who aren’t violent criminals? Dude! What about your own racism? I mean, your shockingly low expectations of Persons Of Color doesn’t suggest a terribly high opinion of them, does it?

Our colleges and universities grow more useless–and more toxic!–by the day.

Cut off the grants. Cut off the funds. We can’t afford them anymore. Cut off the money and let them die.

  1. My friend since high school recently retired from being the Dean of the faculty at Princeton Seminary. We exchange emails on a regular basis. He currently is a temporary pastor of a PCUSA church. Here are some thoughts he shared about racism in his denomination: “My denomination is so historically intertwined with the theological justification of slavery and its evils, not to mention the endowments of its schools and churches, including the theological seminary to which I gave thirty years of my life, that for me “the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; if it begins with us,” then perhaps we can leave to God “what will be the end for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Pet 4:17).”

    1. That is a very interesting comment. I know that some “Christian” denominations supported slavery and I feel no sympathy for them, if they end up feeling the pain for their prior misdeeds.

      While I will not be mentioning any names, I have been watching the fortunes of a certain denomination with great interest. It has come to light that they continued teaching some things they knew to be false, instead of admitting their error and moving forward with better understanding. Very real problems have come to light, and in astonishingly little time, their good fortunes have been replaced with profound losses.

      Most recently, some legal concerns have come to light and I suspect that there may be some misuse of funds. The big question is whether the visible church leadership are the perpetrators, or if they are the pawns of people behind the scenes that have control of the money. In any event, there is a growing interest in all of this, on the part of law enforcement.

      I feel no compassion for such people, because they have brought this upon themselves. Likewise, any church that allowed itself to become a political tool, whether in support of slavery (which is definitely not approved of in the Bible), or in support of some other cause which is not in alignment with the teachings of Christ, can’t complain if they come to an ignominious end.

      Sadly, many mainstream churches appear to be poorly postured as regards the judgment the Bible foretells. We don’t know the specifics, timing, etc. but we do know it as coming. All we can do, as individuals, is to align ourselves with scripture and remain clear of the pitfalls.

    2. Don’t we all have enough sins of our own, without being judged for sins committed two centuries ago by other people?
      Should I go around ranting because Romans enslaved my ancestors? Probably tossed some of them into the arena, while they were at it.
      This is nothing but injustice-collecting for fun and profit.

    3. And what kind of righteous judgment would it be, to judge people for slavery 150 years after it ended? Making them pay for other people’s sins?

    4. I don’t think the judgment would be on the people, but upon the organization behind that denomination.

      Let me elaborate. I am a Christian, not the member of any denomination. The rise or fall of any denomination doesn’t change the fact that I am a Christian. I wish no ill toward the PCUSA or its members, but if that organization has supported things which are not scriptural, then that is between them and God.

      Many times, we have seen examples of mainstream churches embracing things which the Bible does not support. People are leaving some of these churches in droves. Meanwhile, Christians whom claim no specific denomination are increasing in number. God will never make a person pay for the sins of someone else. However, He may make it plain that a denomination does not enjoy His support.

    5. I think the thing I hated most about school was how the teacher, when she couldn’t figure out who had done something wrong, just went and punished the whole class for it.
