More “inclusive” exclusivity. More “Open minded” thought control from the Left. (yes that was Orwellian doublespeak, so is their crap… but they don’t know it. 🙂
Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.
Apparently, according to statistics, evil white people make up 68% of the campus so naturally, they are all racists and it’s minorities rules.
“White privilege” and all… So the left has a lot of “work” ahead of it to crush white people into line and shame them all into racists, all men into sexists, and all straight people into homophobes so they can destroy them and remake them into better Orwellian “diverse” Liberals.
They even have a conference: http://www.whiteprivilegeconference.com/index.html
The city of Madison hosted the 15th annual national White Privilege Conference last week at the Monona Terrace to discuss issues of white supremacy, social justice, education and the Tea Party.
All them are hefty evil white racists, especially them tea-baggers!! 🙂
“Teaching is a political act, and you can’t choose to be neutral. You are either a pawn used to perpetuate a system of oppression or you are fighting against it,” Radersma said during the session. “And if you think you are neutral, you are a pawn.”- Kim Radersm- is currently working toward her Ph. D. in critical whiteness studies at Brock University in Ontario, Canada.
You are for Big Brother or you’re against him!
According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.”
“Students will come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions.”
Radersma said educators need to challenge the system, otherwise they are giving in to white supremacy. Radersma also argued the first step is realizing that all white people are carrying the signs of oppression.
“Being a white person who does anti-racist work is like being an alcoholic. I will never be recovered by my alcoholism, to use the metaphor,” Radersma said. “I have to everyday wake up and acknowledge that I am so deeply imbedded with racist thoughts and notions and actions in my body that I have to choose everyday to do anti-racist work and think in an anti-racist way.”
She argued that until white people admit they have a problem, they will not be able to fight against white privilege.
“We’ve been raised to be good. ‘I’m a good white person,’ and yet to realize I carry within me these dark, horrible thoughts and perceptions is hard to admit. And yet like the alcoholic, what’s the first step? Admitting you have a problem,” she told the session attendees.
ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE INHERENTLY EVIL RACISTS.
This is the Left’s idea of “diversity”. 🙂
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”– Dr Martin Luther King.
So much for that naive conspirator for white privilege! 🙂
The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”
Breikss is not the only WSU faculty member implementing such policies.
Much like in Selena Breikss’s classroom, students taking Professor Rebecca Fowler’s “Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies” course will see their grades suffer if they use the term “illegal alien” in their assigned writing.
According to her syllabus, students will lose one point every time they use the words “illegal alien” or “illegals” rather than the preferred terms of “‘undocumented’ migrants/immigrants/persons.” Throughout the course, Fowler says, students will “come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions.”
In an email to Campus Reform, Fowler complained that “the term ‘illegal alien’ has permeated dominant discourses that circulate in the news to the extent that our society has come to associate ALL unauthorized border crossings with those immigrants originating from countries south of our border (and not with Asian immigrants, for example, many of whom are also in the country without legal documents and make up a considerable portion of undocumented immigrants living in the country).”
So it’s inherently racist because they don’t talk about Asians… 🙂
“The socio-legal production of migrant illegality works to systematically dehumanize and exploit these brown bodies for their labor,” Fowler continued.
White students in Professor John Streamas’s “Introduction to Multicultural Literature” class, are expected to “defer” to non-white students, among other community guidelines, if they want “to do well in this class.”
In the guidelines in his syllabus, Streamas elaborates that he requires students to “reflect” on their grasp of history and social relations “by respecting shy and quiet classmates and by deferring to the experiences of people of color.”
White people are evil.
Streamas—who previously generated controversy by calling a student a “white shitbag” and declared that WSU should stand for “White Supremacist University”—also demands that students “understand and consider the rage of people who are victims of systematic injustice.”
Later in the syllabus, Streamas goes even further and accuses Glenn Beck of being an “insensitive white.”
Several other WSU professors require their students to “acknowledge that racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and other institutionalized forms of oppression exist” or that “we do not live in a post-racial world.”
But Obama promised it! The Left said electing Obama would bring about the post-racial world! 🙂
Naturally, being Leftist they meant the exact opposite of what they proclaimed. It’s what they do.
Beside, race-baiting is the #1 Liberal control tactic. They are addicted to it. It’s like asking a chain smoker to quit smoking or a chronic drunk to stop drinking.
Ari Cohn, a lawyer with the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, told Campus Reform he considers such requirements to be contradictory, even given the sensitive nature of the courses.
“It is notable that one of the syllabus provisions warns: ‘The subject material of this class is sensitive and controversial. Strive to keep an open mind.’ How are students supposed to approach these sensitive and controversial materials at all, let alone to keep an open mind, if they have to fear that a misconstrued statement, or one that unreasonably offends a classmate will lead to a grade reduction or even removal from class?”
Hehehehe, that’s the point. Big Brother is watching you, always! He’s waiting for you to slip up so he can pounce.
Neither Breikss nor Streamas replied to Campus Reform’s request for comment.

The rocket launcher with the Dove is a nice Orwellian touch. 🙂
“If you don’t want to work for equity, get the fuck out of education,” Radersma said. “If you are not serious about being an agent of change that helps stifle the oppressive systems, go find another job. Because you are a political figure.”

America’s first post–racial president.
Naturally, given the Left’s overwhelming need to lie and deceive the Left meant the exact opposite, America’s first ALL RACE President, where race is all it’s about.
To control not only the speech and actions, but also the thoughts of its subjects, labeling “unapproved thoughts” with the term thoughtcrime, or crimethink in Newspeak. For such infractions, the Thought Police come for you.
The term “Thought Police,” by extension, has come to refer to real or perceived enforcement of ideological correctness, or preemptive policing where a person is apprehended in anticipation of the possibility that they may commit a crime, in any modern or historical contexts.
In the twenty-first century, a related concept of ideological correctness in reference to the labeling or calling-out of words or speech considered by some to be inappropriate or improper, known as “political correctness”.
