Did the right just cyberbully the University of Chicago into canceling its racist course?
Well, for the time being anyways.
You might recall about a week ago when we reported on the University of Chicago and their newest uber-racist course, "The Problem of Whiteness," which is nothing more than a racist diatribe against white people.
Seriously, the school clearly has a vicious anti-white racist problem. Read through this story:
Yeah, it's disgusting.
But, due to the backlash from the right and this young dude's bravery to point this out, the university has had to take action.
The University of Chicago has delayed its course "The Problem of Whiteness" days after a student spoke out against it.
A university spokesperson told The Washington Times on Monday that the course's instructor decided to move the course to the spring quarter beginning March 20. The class was originally slated to start Jan. 3.
Sophomore Daniel Schmidt shared screenshots of the course last week on his Twitter account.
There was enough blowback that the University took the course down.
However, it looks like it might still go ahead in the spring, unless the pushback continues.
"The Problem of Whiteness" is being offered under the college's Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) program.
The course description on the university's CRES page says, "This seminar examines the problem of whiteness through an anthropological lens, drawing from classic and contemporary works of critical race theory" and approaches "whiteness as a ‘pigment of the imagination' with worldmaking (and razing) effects."
A college that offers a critical-race major made headlines because of the title of this class; however, ALL of the anti-racist courses are racist against whites by definition of CRT.
And while they've taken a pause, I don't expect them to completely drop their racist course.
In its statement to the Times, the university stood by its decision to offer the course, saying it's "deeply committed to upholding the values of academic freedom, the free expression of ideas and the ability of faculty and students to express a wide range of views and to contest the ideas that they oppose."
Apparently, it's fine to be racist against white people. You would NEVER even IMAGINE seeing a similar class that's billed as criticizing any other race.
