Ivy League TA Calls On Blacks First, Whites Last

Published

on

 

“I will always call on my Black women students first. Other POC get second tier priority. White women come next. And, if I have to, white men.” Now is this individual a bigot or a teaching assistant at an Ivy League university? Trick question: she’s both. Let’s check it out.

Stephanie McKellop is a history TA at the University of Pennsylvania who apparently uses a method called “progressive stacking” when she calls on students in her classes. Now, what is progressive stacking? The Wikipedia page McKellop links describes it as “a technique used to give marginalized groups a greater chance to speak.” The Occupy Wall Street movement used it and A. Barton Hinkle at the Richmond Times-Dispatch said that “lining up speakers by race and gender might not seem fair on an individual level,” suggesting the concept pertains to class more than individual. Because yes, this is a Marxist phenomenon.

McKellop insisted that she was “using a very well-worn pedagogical tactic which includes calling on people of color.” But that’s a bit disingenuous. She wasn’t simply including black students, but actively prioritizing them.. Anyway, there’s reason to believe McKellop isn’t just trying to ease oppression, but actively dislikes white people.

Here’s apparently how Stephanie ended one of the classes she taught: “At the end of the semester in the slavery class, I asked ‘who is racist?’ & said ‘all the white folk in here.’ Shook them, but learned them.”

Stephanie announced this month that she’s not teaching courses next semester, which is a shame because I was really looking forward to forking over $70,000 in tuition for the chance at being discriminated on the basis of my race and sex. But the grad student said it was because she had to take exams, not because she got fired. And hey, why SHOULD McKellop get fired? She’s not the only Ivy League teacher using progressive stacking. Harvard’s doing it too.

 

You know, Timothy and Stephanie are making great progress, but it’s not enough. While the students you guys are calling on may not be 100% white, the teacher in each of your classrooms is 100% white. I demand you resign from  your positions and appoint in your place the most dark-skinned people you can find or else I’ll tell Black Lives Matter. You have one hour.

Prof Ordered To Apologize For Elevator ‘Lingerie’ Joke

Published

on

Merrimack College professor Simona Sharoni reported King’s College London political theory professor Richard Ned Lebow for saying “ladies’ lingerie” when asked which floor he wanted to visit, reported The Washington Post. Because you know: at first it’s only a harmless joke, but next thing you know this 76-year-old man will be out raping in broad daylight.

Sharoni and Lebow were attending a conference in San Francisco, of course, held by the International Studies Association. In her complaint to the ISA, Sharoni said “I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that [she and another colleague] froze and didn’t confront him….As a survivor of sexual harassment in the academy, I am quite shaken by this incident.”

When he found out she had complained, Lebow wrote to Sharoni, saying he “had no desire to insult women or to make [her] feel uncomfortable,” calling her complaint “frivolous,” and saying that, like her, he is “strongly opposed to the exploitation, coercion or humiliation of women….As such evils continue, it seems to me to make sense to direct our attention to real offenses, not those that are imagined or marginal.”

But ISA executive director Mark Boyer called Lebow’s joke “offensive and inappropriate,” said that his calling the complaint “frivolous” was an even “more serious violation,” and ordered him to send Sharoni an “unequivocal apology” if he doesn’t want to be punished, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Lebow has refused to apologize and good on him. Of course, the true harassers in this scenario are Sharoni and the “scholarly” group for, like some sort of totalitarian police force, trying to extort a false confession out of this poor man. Perhaps the International Studies Association needs to study up a bit on what has happened internationally in societies that punish thoughtcrime.

‘Academic Freedom Week’ Hosts Only Leftists

Published

on

Columbia University’s Apartheid Divest is hosting an academic freedom week, inviting a slew of left-wing academics, reported Campus Reform.

On Monday, Columbia students will be treated to a panel called “On the Palestine Exception,” featuring Rutgers professor Jasbir Puar, who argues that Israel harvests Palestinian organs, UCLA professor Gil Hochberg, who thinks the “militarized gaze” of Israeli soldiers is a “tool of dominance,” and Columbia’s own Joseph Massad, who has redefined anti-Semitism to also include hatred of Muslims. Yay! Diversity of opinion!

And it gets even better with Tuesday’s “White Supremacy in Academia.” Get out your pen and paper for some insightful comments from Trinity College professor Johnny E. Williams, who called whites “inhuman assholes,” using the hashtag #LetThemFuckingDie.

But if there’s a VIP of the VIPs, it’s gotta be George Ciccariello-Maher, the professor who tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide” and said the Las Vegas massacre “is what happens” when white people “don’t get what they want.” Ciccariello-Maher will be paneling Wednesday’s “Academic Antifascism” panel because he is, of course, also a big fan of the men in black. Now there can only be one winner, but his fellow panelist San Diego State University prof “Ozzie” Monge deserves a shout-out for threatening to lower a white student’s grade when she dared disagree with him over the school’s Aztec mascot.

What’s really fascinating about this Columbia event is that while the pro-Palestinian student sponsors say universities have attacked and silenced these speakers, almost none of them actually were. Drexel put Ciccariello-Maher on leave and then made him teach classes remotely for security reasons until the professor chose to resign and San Diego State kicked Monge out of the classroom, but only after the California DOJ found him guilty of racial retaliation, but that seems to be it. If you want to host a real academic freedom event, Columbia, maybe you should invite fewer lefties who are a little too edgy for the in-group and more conservatives who have no hope of making it into the group to begin with.

This School Official Loves Farrakhan

Published

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has said “the Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.” This week, Democrats came under fire for their connections to the minister, but you’d think at least school would be a safe haven from Farrakhan supporters, right?

Well, Chris Blanks volunteers at and sits on the discipline committee of Waukegan Public School District in Illinois, reported The Daily Caller News FoundationBlanks is a huge supporter of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Here he is with the minister and last week he said “love, life and liberation to the honorable Minister Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.” Then he said that a parent and teacher advocacy group that criticized him knows “absolutely nothing about this man they claim is a hater.” 

Now, Farrakhan isn’t just a fan of Hitler. The minister thinks Hezbollah terrorists are freedom fighters. He’s informed us that “white people are potential humans — they haven’t evolved yet.” Farrakhan also mentioned “The Mother Wheel is a heavily armed spaceship the size of a city, which will rain destruction upon white America but save those who embrace the Nation of Islam.”

Even the Southern Poverty Law Center, which typically focuses only on right-wing extremism, has an entry for the Nation of Islam, saying the group’s “theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate.”

A search for “Christopher Blanks” in the Lake County, Illinois court system returns around 50 results for traffic violations, domestic battery, and controlled substance felonies. And yet this is the dude Waukegan public schools has sitting on its discipline committee deciding how children are punished. Pretty strange.
