I rather think that if I ever said something like, “Oh, no, I can’t read that book–it’s written by a black person,” most people would think there was something wrong with me. But if you balk at reading anything written by a white person–well, your college is very anxious for you to continue paying tuition, so anything goes.
The listening sessions will be only “for faculty/staff who identify as faculty/staff of color.” What does that mean, “identify as”? Anybody can “identify as” anything. I identify as King of Akkad. Big deal.
What’s on the agenda? Well, they want to craft a “zero-tolerance policy for white supremacy” on the campus. What do they mean by “white supremacy”? Ooh! Thirty-seven years ago–yes, 37 years ago–a couple of the administrators posed in front of a Confederate flag for their yearbook photo. The horror, the horror!
These schools are playing games with young people’s minds, and evil and unwholesome games at that. And they’re doing it on our dime! “White supremacy”–an ancient yearbook photo. To get people all worked up about something as ridiculous as that, worked up on their way to violence–worked up so that they boil over with rage and hate–
So, a snack was served at Collingwood Elementary School, a little boy said something about brownies–because that’s what they were serving–and next thing you know, “school officials”–there goes that doofus alarm again–police, the county prosecutor, and the New Jersey Division of Child Protection get involved.,. because somehow the mere mention of brownies, when brownies are actually present, constitutes “a racial incident” (https://leeduigon.com/2016/06/30/stupid-authorities-crash-down-on-9-year-old-for-calling-brownies-brownies/). Government goofs converge on the incident like sharks around a sinking ship.
Most of you have never had occasion to pass through Camden County, New Jersey. If you’ve ever seen it with your own eyes, you’ll marvel that any of these “authorities” find time to devote to imaginary “racial incidents”–I mean, just look at it!
But wherever Democrats rule–the correct term is “to serve in public office,” but these creeps “rule”–this is what you find: the whole place going to hell in a handbasket while the “authorities” dream up new ways to keep people stirred up about “racism.”
Gee, did you know neo-Nazis drink a lot of milk? Bet you weren’t aware of the “subtle racism hidden in our health facts.” Sure, you’ve heard that the United States “was founded on racism,” and that “every institution that we uphold has racist roots.” And so on.
The writer of this drivel is only parroting what she’s been taught in our public schools and universities.
It is a sin to try to stir up strife where none exists. Racial harmony really bugs liberals: makes ’em mad enough to spit. Without the racial grievance industry, their car has three flat tires. And although they enjoy, every hour of every day, the benefits of living in America, which they’d be very hard put to do without, they hate their own country and tirelessly seek to damage it. So drinking milk, and advocating the drinking of milk, is just, for them, more proof that America is run by Nazis. Because everybody who’s not them is a Nazi.
If they know the actual meaning of the word, it’s way more than I’d expect of them.
Parents who love and respect their sons and daughters do not subject them to a public education.
(P.S.–I’ll hold off on John 4 till tomorrow. I’m too rattled to do it justice today.)
When you get to be on TV as much as you like, and get paid boxcar-loads of money for it, and get invited to give speeches to crowds of college students who think you’re dazzlingly brilliant, it strikes me that it would be kind of difficult to find things to complain about. But that’s because I’m not Melissa Perry.
Recently she turned up at Elon University to give a Martin Luther King (who was not able to object) commemorative speech on… wait for it!… “Ontological Blackness.” ( https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=7153 )
What the dickens, you ask, is that?
To which I answer, Aw, who cares?
“Blackness,” according to the overpaid TV celebrity, is deep down, and Ontological Blackness has something to do with the “mistreatment” of persons who are “black, female, transgender, queer, and immigrants.” Oh, and it’s bad and racist to oppose abortion. Yes, it’s bad to oppose something that snuffs out the lives of slightly more than half the black babies conceived in New York City.
“You and I,” she babbled, “we don’t live in a post-racial America.”
Don’t you wish you could get big piles of money for just shooting your mouth off?
Basic Operating Principle to Remember: When a basic social problem–racism, for instance–has been solved insofar as humanly possible, those who have gained high status and wealth by complaining about real racism will preserve their position by complaining about imaginary racism.
The great thing about imaginary problems is that they never go away, and the professional protesters are never out of a job.
Every time you think America’s university system has hit bottom, it lurches down another notch. You’re gonna just love this story from Columbia University–under Herbert Marcuse in the 1960s, one of the original hatcheries of American Stalinism.
Oh, the suffering! And the university officials can’t do anything with her because they’re the ones who filled her head with all this glop in the first place. They can’t disavow the ideology of victimhood that they taught her.
The student is black, and female. Therefore she should only have to read books written by black females. For any other kind of book to appear before her eyes would be “microaggression” and “oppression.”
As it is, the poor creature expects she’ll have to put in a sixth year just to get her bachelor’s degree.
Oh, no! They call it a “bachelor’s degree!” Quick, somebody call 911, we have to report an incident of microaggression. “Bachelor” is a sexist word, injurious and hurtful and mean to all female students enrolled in colleges throughout the land.
Real racism having been solved, inasmuch as flawed human beings living in a fallen world can solve it, what remains is imaginary racism. The great thing about imaginary problems is that they remain in perpetuity, they can never be solved because they don’t exist.
And have you noticed? Progressives and their followers have re-invented Jim Crow.
In their quest for freedom, they have subjected themselves to slavery.
Have you noticed that “Obama” spelled backwards almost makes “Ameba”? You’ve only got to change some letters, or else just say it real fast. Who can Al Sharpton sue for this? Who has to apologize?
Next they’ll be offended by anagrams. For instance, “this” can be arranged to spell out a vulgar synonym for doo-doo. And we’ll have to start calling ginger ale something else, too, to avoid racist overtones.
Stupidity is just like sin: it carries its own punishment.
