Racist? Hunter College to offer ‘Abolition of Whiteness’ course

Last Thursday, Campus Reform reported that Hunter College, a constituent college of the City University of New York, will offer students an “Abolition of Whiteness” course this fall to discuss how “white supremacy and violence” influences individual identity.

According to Campus Reform:

The course, taught by Women and Gender Studies Professor Jennifer Gaboury, is cross-listed for both her department and the Political Science Department, where it fulfills one of four required courses in the “4 subfields of political science” under the umbrella of POLSC 204: Contemporary Issues in Political Theory.

While the school’s official course catalog discloses very little about what is actually discussed in the course, a flyer advertising a previous iteration of the class from the fall of 2016 describes it as “an overview of whiteness studies in the United States,” specifically “focusing on concepts of consciousness, in/visibility, disavowal, and resentment.”

“We’ll be examining how whiteness—and/or white supremacy and violence—is intertwined with conceptions of gender, race, sexuality, class, body ability, nationality, and age,” the description continues, adding that “a petition for this course is on file with the College Senate so that it fulfills Pluralism and Diversity Parts B, C, or D,” referring to mandatory courses that focus, respectively, on “the historical conditions, perspectives and/or intellectual traditions” of ethnic minorities in the U.S., women and those with non-traditional sexual orientations, and Europeans.


Abolition of whiteness

Campus Reform said it reached out to Gaboury for further elaboration on her course, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

No surprise there…

But do we really need elaboration on what this is?  For some time, colleges have come up with these kind of outrageous, lunatic “courses” designed to spread psychobabble and liberal propaganda while disguising it as “academics.”  The truth is, there’s nothing academic about this.  It’s just another flimsy excuse to spread even more liberal lunacy, hatred and racism.

Imagine the outrage that would ensue if someone came up with an “Abolition of (insert any race other than white here)” course…

Parents, please select your children’s colleges very carefully to make sure they’ll actually get educated and not indoctrinated with this kind of weapons-grade stupidity.
