University of California: Saying ‘I’m not racist’ is racist

Colleges today have become nothing more than leftist indoctrination centers destroying the minds of our children.  Case in point: A document put out by the University of California which seeks to help students recognize so-called microaggressions.  Among the things the document says is racist is saying, “I’m not racist.”

Dennis Prager tweeted a short list from the document:

That’s right, saying there is only one race is racist.  So is saying, “America is a melting pot.”  According to the document, this denies “the individual as a racial/cultural being.”

The document also claims that saying, “Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough” is a racist microaggression that really means, “people of color are lazy and/or incompetent and need to work harder.”

There’s more.  The document claims that “being forced to choose Male or Female when completing basic forms” is sexist or heterosexist.

And, the University says, “continuing to mispronounce the names of students after students have corrected the person time and time again” is also a racist microaggression.

One person told Prager:

Paul Joseph Watson added:

We’ve previously reported on other universities that use similar guidelines for “microaggressions,” including the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which launched a campaign that claimed using the term “politically correct” as a pejorative is a politically incorrect “microaggression”.

A “Bias-Free Language Guide” posted on the University of New Hampshire website also asserted that the word “American” is “problematic” because it “assumes the U.S. is the only country inside [the continents of North and South America].”

Other discouraged words and phrases included, “obese,” “normal,” “mothering,” “fathering,” “homosexual,” “illegal alien,” and “senior citizens.”

Is it any wonder our children are so messed up?

Consider this: a recent poll of university students said that 53 percent value “diversity” while only 46 percent value free speech.

According to the Times Higher Education:

US university students value a diverse and inclusive environment more than free speech rights, according to a new study on student attitudes on free expression.

The report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation comes at a turbulent time on college campuses nationwide, where students have challenged the principles of the US Constitution’s First Amendment – they have called for controversial campus speakers to be disinvited and, when they disagree with speakers’ messages, have shouted them down. They’ve also called for administrators to invest more in diversity initiatives and are demanding clear statements from them against speech they deem hateful.

“Hateful,” of course, means anything non-PC or right of center, as we’ve seen time and again.

Perhaps it’s time for parents to consider other options when it comes to choosing colleges for their children…
