MU student ‘moved from campus’ after racist incident

The University of Missouri Office of Student Conduct moved a student from campus pending the outcome of the student discipline process after he made racist remarks during a black student group’s gathering early Monday morning, MU officials said.

A group of about 15 students were rehearsing for a Legion of Black Collegians Royalty Court performance — part of Homecoming — just after midnight Monday morning at Traditions Plaza when a white man who appeared to be drunk interrupted them, according to a statement from Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin posted online Monday.

If he wanted to get in real trouble, he would have thrown cotton balls on the pavement near their feet.

Rehearsal after midnight?

Portland State course aims to ‘make whiteness strange’

According to Portland State University Professor’s Rachel Sanders’ “White Privilege” course, “whiteness” must be dismantled if racial justice will ever be achieved.

The course description states that “whiteness is the lynchpin of structures of racial meaning and racial inequality in the United States” and claims that “to preserve whiteness is to preserve racial injustice.”

Students taking the course will “endeavor to make whiteness strange.” In order to make whiteness strange, the description says students must “interrogate whiteness as an unstable legal, political, social, and cultural construction.”

The course readings and concepts are drawn, in part, from the field of “critical race theory.” According to Harvard University, critical race theory “combine[s] progressive political struggles for racial justice with critiques of the conventional legal and scholarly norms which are themselves viewed as part of the illegitimate hierarchies that need to be changed.”

The Portland State University course description claims the construction of “whiteness” attaches material and psychological benefits to “individuals who identify, or are identified, as white.”

Students taking the course will also study the literary work of writer Ta-Nehisi Coates…

Ta!  That’s all I needed, I’m stop there.  I don’t need to read any more about black bodies.

Here’s the problem for this can of mixed nuts:  If “whiteness” socially disappears, then KKKrazy Glue stops working.  What’s going to hold the motley loon Democrat-left coalition together?

Okay, they’re giving good ole Jafari Sinclaire Allen, he of cigar smoking card hustling gay black Cuban ethnography fame, a run for his money. Though this class would really not be complete if they didn’t find some way to link this all back to gun violence and transphobia.

Or maybe, just maybe, somewhere on Ye Olde Internets, there is something like the Postmodern Essay Generator for course descriptions and titles.

Earth circa 2015 is a planet where one needs a very high tolerance for bullshit.

First two paragraphs told me everything I needed to know.  “American flag” and “Jackson Hole, Wyoming.”  I knew we’d find “immigrants,” “Hispanic/Latino” somewhere mixed up in this story.  Jackson Ho is a big vacation hangout for kajillionaires, and of course they just have to import some cheap labor Hispanics to do whatever.  And of course we must not offend their cheap labor, because diversity.

Which is this.

Which is really this.

Basically a convoluted circumlocution trying to beg blacks on the footzball and bassaball teams to behave and not rape women.

Teachers unions are the cause of this year’s spike in urban violence.

Nuts, here I’ve been operating all this time under the notion that the Democrat-left-Obama-media amped up the black undertow in two different election cycles, and they’re acting out on their exuberance and in the case of two cities the afterglow of victory riots by mostly killing each other.

Something tells me the two studies mentioned here are methodologically problematic.

Kentucky State Police outraged by high school assignment

Kentucky State Police were outraged over a child’s school assignment.

An article review assignment given to a Graves County High School class didn’t sit well with police.

“I think its just a bad timing issue,” Sergeant Kyle Nall said.

He said students learning about police use of deadly force and minorities, after the loss of a state trooper, is too soon.

No, the problem isn’t timing, it’s accuracy.  Remember, just a few weeks ago, just up the road a bit from Mayfield, Kentucky, there was a matter of the use of force, a law enforcement officer and a minority.

It’s not as if Graves County High School has very many blacks to pander to.
