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.

Laverne Cox: ‘Trans-Inclusive’ Language ‘Matter Of Life And Death’

Published

on

Transgender activist and actress Laverne Cox argued that using language that is inclusive of transgender people is a “matter of life and death,” reported Campus Reform. Pitzer College in California invited Laverne to speak and the activist addressed the recent Alabama law banning abortion in all cases except when the mother’s life is at risk.

After that happened, Laverne shared a tweet from a civil rights activist who said “woman’s body. Woman’s right to choose. End of story.”

Catchy platitude? Check. Leaving no room for debate? Check. That tweet would seem to meet all of the usual standards for progressive talking points…what could possibly go wrong?

But by saying “women,” Laverne was apparently leaving out biological women who transition to become men but then, I guess, preserve their ability to have children and reproduce in a gay relationship.

Imagine enrolling in Pitzer College and paying around $50,000 per year to major in something really useful like — oh, I don’t know — like their gender and feminist studies program, let’s say.  For four years, you slug through tests and presentations…and your or your parents’ bank account and finally, graduation day is here. You’re looking to hear something really inspiring before you embark on a fulfilling career of being a lobbyist or, yourself, indoctrinating kids in school. What could be more empowering than hearing an actress from “Orange Is the New Black” dictate to you how to use your English?

Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was actually the students’ notion to invite Laverne. Remember that this is the same school where the student senate tried to force the president out after he vetoed an attempt to spike the school’s study abroad program in Israel.

The lunatics may just be running the asylum.

Harvard Group Says ‘F*** ICE,’ Hosts ‘UndocuGraduation’

Published

on

Harvard University’s Act on a Dream student group hosted an “Undocugraduation” last week, according to Campus Reform. The event was apparently attended by more than 50 students, staff, and administrators of the Harvard community.

You’ve heard of black-only graduations, but have you heard of ones exclusively for illegals? You might think I’m comparing apples and oranges here, but I don’t think it’s too difficult to imagine an America in, let’s say, 2050, where slavery is placed on the same pedestal as national borders. Some people probably already do equate the two.

Harvard’s Act on a Dream group posted to Facebook in March, saying “Fuck ICE and [Customs and Border Patrol]! All these racist institutions have got to go.”

Harvard also apparently doesn’t consider citizenship status at all when awarding financial aid And the Ivy League school is far from the only one catering to illegals. Law school clinics in New Jersey recently received a quarter of a million dollars to represent illegal aliens facing deportation on a pro-bono basis. Over a third of American states allow illegal aliens to obtain IN-STATE tuition — this is all, of course, while American citizens from other states, on average, have to pay over two times as much to attend the same schools. And last month, New York doled out $27 million for children of illegal aliens, while refusing to add money to a fund that’s a tenth the size helping children of fallen soldiers.

Just another day in clown world, fam.

Harvard Drops Dean Representing Harvey Weinstein

Published

on

If you attend Harvard, you might find yourself living in Winthrop College, one of the Ivy League school’s residential houses. And your dean would be a bloke by the name of Ronald Sullivan, who also serves as a law professor and director of Harvard’s Criminal Justice Institute there.

Ronald is keeping his professor and director gigs, but the school announced that it will not be renewing his contract as a residential dean, reported Inside Higher Ed. You see, some students and outside agitators probably are upset that Ronald is helping provide legal defense for alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein.

Harvard student Danu Mudannayake created a petition, saying that in Ronald’s “role as a House Dean, his defense of [Weinstein] induces a great amount of fear and hurt in victims of the crimes that Weinstein is accused of, and although anyone facing the law is innocent until proven guilty, the scope of the Weinstein case still literally shakes people on this campus to this day. His role on Weinstein’s team, and position as a community leader, are NOT mutually exclusive and the former has incredibly harmful implications for the latter.”

The word of the day here on Campus Unmasked is “compartmentalize.” It’s what we can do what all of these pseudo-intellectual fruitcakes seemingly cannot. The courtroom is not real life. I mean, this is like arguing that you’re not gonna let a guy babysit your kid because he played a serial killer in a movie. It’s silly and, worse, it’s anti-intellectual. Remember that this is the same school where students found learning about rape law triggering. If you don’t have these discussions in college and punish the people who can provide another point of view, you’re going to be a pretty crummy lawyer.
