This week we celebrated Martin Luther King Day as a national holiday. You remember Rev. King. He was that poor patzer who wanted to be judged by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin. Well, you can’t always get what you want.
Our nation’s colleges and universities celebrated King Day by stoking the fires of racial animosity. That’s part of a higher education, these days.
At Oregon State University last week, students were roped into an “Implicit Bias workshop.” In this feast of tomfoolery, they were told, among other things, that ordering a cup of coffee was pretty much the moral equivalent of a white policeman shooting a black man; it is, at the very least, microaggression, not to mention implicit bias. Somehow having a cup of coffee contributes to injustice, racism, and inequality. Probably to Global Warming, too, while we’re at it.
But how, why, does ordering a coffee constitute implicit bias? Yes, someone actually had the nerve to ask that. Probably a racist. Alas, we’ll never know how or why, because the nitwit conducting the workshop couldn’t find an answer. Don’t you love it when you ask your professor a question, and he doesn’t know?
Shut up, you racist.
The students at Elon University were treated to a visit by TV chowderhead Melissa Harris Perry, who was invited there to give a Martin Luther King commemorative speech. She did not talk about judging people by the content of their character. You’ll never guess what she did give a speech about, so I might as well tell you. She harangued the students on “ontological blackness.”
Wow! Ontological blackness—what’s that?
Do you really want to know? I’m sure I don’t. This is the same Melissa Perry who appeared on the air once with tampon earrings—somehow it failed to start a fashion trend—to show her enthusiastic support for abortion. Given that blacks’ babies are aborted at a rate of twice that of any other group’s, and that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, publicly stated as one of her goals the eradication of black people as an “inferior race,” why was there no one to call Melissa out on that? Like, if she really is so fond of black people, why is she cheerleading for the abortion mill? How does she get away with that outrageous double standard?
Shut up, you racist.
Then there’s Portland Community College, P.C.C. for short. The initials could also stand for Political Correctness College, if that is not a tautology.
PCC has got those hoity-toity universities beat. They have initiated a “Whiteness History Month”. It may be only a community college for those not smart enough to get into a real college, let alone a university; but it is right in the thick of the race race. Which sounds like a tautology but isn’t.
This “educational project,” as they call it, will show how the “construct of whiteness” leads to racial inequality. The term “construct” denotes that “whiteness” is not real. Nope, it’s just something dreamed up by racists and only exists because people think it does. It’s not real, but it’s still this gigantic socio-political problem that has to be dealt with by highly-paid educators who get very nice pension packages. They will teach the younger generation “the learning tasks of Critical Race Theory.”
What—you want to know what the devil Critical Race Theory is? Shut up, you racist.
“Whiteness History Month” is the creation of the Campus Diversity Council, dedicated to achieving “diversity” by enforcing uniformity of thought.
Have I perceived this wrongly, or are these colleges trying to make people more racist than they used to be? Do America’s educators view racial peace and harmony as some kind of calamity, to be prevented at all costs—and, where it exists, destroyed? In the name of “social justice”—trust liberals to give a bad name to “justice”—do they teach young people to hate and fear each other—based on the color of their skin?
How else would you expect pure pluperfect idiots to celebrate Martin Luther King?
The American university—where minds and morals go to die.
