University Offers ‘The Problem of Whiteness’ Course; Fox & Friends Pounces

Arizona State University is offering a course called “Studies in Amer Lit/Culture: U.S. Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness.” The course is currently underway, and, according to Campus Reform, students in the class are reading books like Everyday Language of White Racism and The Alchemy of Race and Rights.

As the university explained to Talking Points Memo, the goal of the course is to “look at how stories shape people’s understandings and experiences of race.” The course is meant to confront race in a way that people generally don’t talk about it and hopes that people will “reach thoughtful conclusions rather than display gut reactions.”

Campus Reform’s Lauren Clark discussed the course with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Fox & Friends earlier, and Hasselbeck was very disturbed by the course. She wondered if a class called “The Problem with Blackness” or “The Problem with Being Female” would fly.

That’s a good point: would that be allowed? We all know the answer, and it is not just “no”, but “hell no!” If any teacher dared even bringing those topics up, they would be tarred and feathered (figuratively), ostracized, called horrendous names, and forced out of their job.

Eric Holder famously called America a “nation of cowards” for not discussing race, yet, we are mostly only allowed to make complaints about White People, to blame White people, to deride White people (in terms of race, mind you). If you try to discuss Black people, you’ll be called a racist, in an attempt to shut down debate. The conversation is a soliloquy, a one sided conversation. Just the very fact that I mention this will have some calling me a racist, or at least proves that I am an “unconscious racist“, which is a big thing nowadays.

    No, pity the poor liberals filled with such self-loathing that taking stupid courses like this make them “feel” better.

    When I saw that his article had four comments, I said to myself, “Self, if you open up the comments, odds are that you’ll find Mr Teach’s favorite liberal commenter defending the university’s course somehow.

    Alas! I didn’t guess that he’d simply drop a sarcastic comment and move on, but at least I was right in general.

  6. Jeffery says:

    Dana,

    Yes, I’m always amazed at the degree of victimhood expressed by American conservatives.

    Obviously, I wasn’t defending the course since there’s nothing needing defense. It’s enough to just mock the cons.

  7. Jeffery says:

    A white guy attacks a Black man in Walmart, a Black man carrying a legal concealed weapon.

    Fortunately, the Black man showed restraint and didn’t shoot his assailant. That’s a pity – we’d be better if feral animals like the white thug were ‘put down’.
