Typically anti-white bias in academia has at least a bit of subtlety — usually you just get a letter denying your admission to a college because there were a “lot of qualified candidates,” with qualifications like being black, Hispanic, etc. Or if you get into college, some of your fellow students won’t be content with removing half of the white authors from a course; they’ll want the rest gone. But very rarely does a professor outright ADMIT they hate white people….
Rutgers University history professor James Livingston recently launched into a rant against white children in which he essentially advocated for apartheid, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“OK, officially, I now hate white people,” said the professor. “I am a white people” — who’s not an English professor, clearly — “for God’s sake, but can we keep them — us — us out of my neighborhood?” Well, there is a thing called self-deporting, if you’re interested, James, unless you’re all talk like those celebrities who tweeted that they would move if Trump won.
“I just went to Harlem Shake on 124 and Lenox for a Classic burger to go, that would [be] my dinner, and the place is overrun with little Caucasian assholes who know their parents will approve of anything they do.” That’s right; those whites just lack all sense of morality.
“Slide around the floor, you little shithead, sing loudly, you moron. Do what you want, nobody here is gonna restrict your right to be white.” James, James, I know that when you practice the progressive theory of “intersectionality” — which looks at oppression across race, gender, all sorts of identities — it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between those different identities, but are you sure that when you say the kids are acting white, you don’t mean they’re acting like kids?
Anti-Terrorism Speaker Uninvited, Then Reinvited To Rutgers
Rutgers University invited Fox News political analyst and anti-Islamic terrorism speaker Lisa Daftari to give a lecture entitled “Radicalism on College Campuses,” rescinded the invitation, and then extended it again, reported Campus Reform.
A petition that called Lisa a “bigot” and “unapologetic Islamophobe” made the rounds online and got more than 1,600 signatures. The petition cited times she said “Islamic terror takes its guidance and teachings from the Quran, which is Sharia law” and “When you go to the mosque and you’re part of a community, and you want to feel important and relevant, and want to give back to the cause — [ISIS] recruits you. You say- I can be an ISIS wife.” The petition said “This statement, equating Muslims everywhere with ISIS, is undoubtedly hate-mongering.”
Ok so maybe Lisa neglected to make the distinction in that particular part of that particular speech. But just a quick Google search reveals that she clearly sees ISIS as only a minority of Islam.
Rutgers initially stood strong against calls to cancel Daftari, saying “if these issues are not brought to the forefront and given a chance to be debated, then they may continue to stay buried,” but the school eventually caved less than a week before Lisa was due to speak this Tuesday, cancelling her talk.
Another petition was started, this time by conservative and libertarian students at Rutgers, defending Lisa’s statements and saying that students at the school called the speaker a “cockroach” and a “bitch.”
And then Rutgers went back on their decision to UNINVITE Lisa, with an administrator sending her a message reading: “I want to write to clear up any confusion regarding your invitation to speak at the University….To the degree that I may have contributed to the confusion, I hope you will accept my apology.”
The school offered her four November dates to speak.
Prof Tries To Redefine ‘Disabled’ For Palestinians
So the National Women’s Studies Association gave out a book prize this month to Rutgers University professor Jasbir K. Puar, for her book entitled “The Right to Maim,” reported The College Fix. Who has the right to maim? Well, Israelis have the right to maim Palestinians, at least, according to Professor Puar.
“Drawing on a stunning array of theoretical and methodological frameworks, Puar uses the concept of ‘debility’— bodily injury and social exclusion brought on by economic and political factors—to disrupt the category of disability,” the book’s description says on Amazon.
So by this point, if you have experience with the hivemind that is social justice, you might be starting to see what’s going to happen. Remember those victimhood categories? Race, gender, sexuality? Well, disability is also one of them and we’ve now apparently reached the stage where, to create empathy for Palestinians, we’re actually redefining the concept of disabled to include not just actual disability, but also whatever we choose, as your progressive overlords, to categorize as economic or social oppression.
“Puar’s analysis culminates in an interrogation of Israel’s policies toward Palestine” — what’s Palestine? You say that almost as if it’s a separate country or something! — “in which she outlines how Israel brings Palestinians into biopolitical being by designating them available for injury. Supplementing its right to kill with what Puar calls the right to maim, the Israeli state relies on liberal frameworks of disability to obscure and enable the mass debilitation of Palestinian bodies.”
Wow. That’s a lot of drivel, or what George Orwell would call duckspeak. Anyway, I wonder if this award-winning book of Puar’s includes anything about, oh let’s say, the fact that at least 50 out of the 62 Palestinians killed by Israel during the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem were, indeed, Hamas or Islamic jihad terrorists, according to CNN. And speaking of Palestinian terrorism, what about the Avivim school bus massacre or the Dolphinarium discotheque suicide bombing? Do any of those deaths or injuries of Israeli children fit under your definition of “disability,” Professor Puar?
Prof Who ‘Resigned’ From White Race In Trouble
Remember Rutgers University professor James Livingston? You know, the guy who got so angry after seeing white kids at a Harlem restaurant that he took to Facebook calling them “little Caucasian assholes,” saying that he now hates white people, and resigning from his race? Well, Rutgers found the professor guilty of violating its discrimination and harassment policy and the professor now faces punishment, according to free speech nonprofit the Foundation for Individual Rights In Education (FIRE).
Rutgers investigated the professor’s comments using three lenses: public concern, speech made outside his job duty, and whether the speech interfered with Rutgers’ ability to perform its mission. The school said that commenting on gentrification satisfied the public concern part and that James made the remarks on his private social media account, but thought his comments could impair the university’s ability to operate properly, saying “students interviewed by the local news station said they would be uncomfortable taking a class with him.”
Rutgers went on to say that while James believes “reverse racism” is a myth and that that view “is frequently espoused in academic circles, applicable federal and state laws do not exclude any race from their protections.” Rutgers mentions that even after his initial post had been deleted, the professor made “another belligerent barb against whites. Given Professor Livingston’s insistence on making disparaging racial comments, a reasonable student may have concerns that he or she would be stigmatized in his classes because of his or her race.”
I might just reverse my belief that university equity offices should be scrapped because this report from the one at Rutgers also very incisively points out that James’s comment wouldn’t have been appropriate if he had replaced white people with black people.
It’s not clear yet how exactly the school will punish James, but he could be fired for his remarks. FIRE is demanding that Rutgers reverse its decision, saying it violates the dude’s First Amendment rights.
