. . .according to black feminist professor Lisa Anderson-Levy, author of “The Elephant in the Room: A ‘Grown Up’ Conversation about Whiteness."
Good day Chaps! The Mouse `ere, reporting on the gathering darkness in Minnesota where The University of Minnesota invited a professor to lecture on “dismantling whiteness,” because the proffette believes white people present an “existential threat” to our nation. She is eager to impose her brand of dark politics on an unsuspecting UM campus next week.
During her lecture, Anderson-Levy is slated to speak on a number of issues, including “the violence of whiteness” and how colleges and universities in the United States may be complicit in perpetuating this violence. I could almost smell the resentment across the pond here in West Hougham.
“This presentation explores the ubiquity and violence of whiteness and the ways in which academic institutions are poised to either reproduce or interrupt these discourses,” writes Anderson-Levy, referring to herself in the third person.
“She argues that whiteness poses an existential threat to social, political, and economic life in the U.S. and proposes that decentering whiteness is one of the most urgent social dilemmas of our time and demands our immediate attention,” the abstract adds.
Anderson-Levy will also speak on how college administrators can “decenter whiteness” at their institutions, “including in our budgets, our curricula, our disciplinary genealogies, our interactions with students, and our relationships with each other as colleagues.”
Good heavens, lads. Is anyone else scratching their loaf over the collective battiness of a politically-correct western culture running amuck? They've gone completely off the rails in their attempts to indict the latest pop-criminal: Pigment. PIGMENT! To these epidermis imbeciles, pigment--or lack thereof--is the new indicator of intrinsic evil.
I know this game is getting old, but let’s play it again shall we? Dear ones, let’s pretend for a moment what would happen if a professor suddenly started lecturing on “dismantling blackness” which presents an “existential threat” to America. Would that professor be fired, publicly shamed, and run out of town on the rails? Quite so. My guess is she would last roughly one second, perhaps less if she were a white male.
On second-thought, if 'she' was a white male she would receive automatic tenure with a library full of liberal books named after her-it-him. But I digress.
Here’s the kicker. She co-leads on a $600,000 project which is supposed to nurture “diversity, inclusivity, and equity” at Beloit College. Let’s take a moment to let that sink in. That's not only a lot of bob, those are the same three buzzwords that characterize Andrews University's appointment of a new 'diversity czar':
The committee’s work, and the final selection of Michael Nixon, VP for Diversity & Inclusion reflected the job description that called for this new position to provide “spiritual, administrative and academic leadership for the equity and diversity vision, resources and programs across the University.”
No, I'm not drawing a fifty-fifty connection between the University of Minnesota and Andrews University, or Lisa Anderson-Levy and Michael Nixon, but both sentiments arise from the black sea of acrimony. Adherents of this mindset approach life with a grid that says "You owe me." "You owe me" to a world that can't pay.
So, parents, if you are considering where (or IF) to send your kids to college, why not consider the administration’s enthusiasm for this sort of antipode bigotry? I don’t know about you, but those would be deal breakers for me and my house. If you are accusing somebody of something simply because of the color of their skin--without any evidence--that is racism of the highest order, closely related to it's malodorous cousin, White Privilege.
Can't you see the Lord Himself--in the Great Dark Throne of Judgment--say to those on the white "Depart from Me you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his white angels." Me neither.
As a bit of an Anglo meself, I say enough with the plastic platitudes of provincialism! We need conversion, forgiveness and joy in our lives and Church. We don't follow what the world does. Or do we?
