Two Colleges Pull Race Card On Objectivity

Next year a course is being offered at Hobart and William Smith Colleges that claim "objectivity" is "white mythology."
The word "sophomoric"~even a "sophomoronic" alteration~sprang into me dino's dastardly mind for being a European mutt mix after I read~""White Mythologies: Objectivity, Meritocracy, and Other Social Constructions" is a sophomore level course taught by (Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee), who are sociology and anthropology professors, respectively.
Betcha bacon that these two well-studied role playing pillars of higher education voted for an obvious crook like The Evil Hag just because a black socialist POTUS touted her as his cackling down from a broomstick peaches and cream replacement.

    Not unexpected. A full generation has been taught by illiberals. A rapidly growing number of those teaching claim that knowledge is meaningless. How do they know that?

      They must know they are also meaningless, though what they say they know is really just a meaningless opinion.

        That is the key!...one's own existence is meaningless to them. Existence itself is meaningless.
        They don't even appreciate their own existence!,...let alone Objectivity...

          By God I think he’s got it! Their individual existence is meaningless to them, without the collective. It is the collective that tells them what meaning...means.

            ...very much like the illusionary voice that occupied bicameral man's head for most of our existence until a couple of us put a down payment of the voice of self and became conscious beings.

            Nothings been the same ever since!...laughing.

            Yeah, but what is meaningful to the collective has to be just as meaningless.
            Peer pressure isn't as meaningless for meaningless, though.
            Because of their nursed tender feelings, these educators of the meaningless always want to stay on the good side of their meaningless progressive peers.

          Perhaps they are ashamed to exist on the shoulders of the past evils which, if they had not happened, would have changed or prevented their present existences (lives) due to different lives of those of the past resulting in different conceptions through out history. If not the past, then not the present. A person depends upon all of past history, otherwise timing would be different for those being conceived resulting in different persons. E.g., if the evil of slavery had not happened, most all of us today would not exist.

      "How do they know that?" Because as dues paying union members that follow the PC mantra into tenure, knowledge (along with merit and objectivity) IS meaningless to keep the job and get paid.

        Are you saying that they are just pretending to play the postmodernist, it’s all just a social construct, game?

          Slickest used car salesmen on the planet. I suspect, like Rand's character Ellsworth Toohey, they know exactly what they are doing.

            ...“they know exactly what they are doing.“
            That is exactly what Jordan Peterson has been saying.

              Jordan Peterson. I had to find out more about him before responding to your post. Thanks for pointing him out.

              I didn't have a lot of time, but I'd say he was spot on with what I've seen so far. I notice the left has been trying to disparage him as a person with the ridiculous "alt-right" moniker to crush him, but can't counter his arguments, which are well articulated. The left can't kill the message, so they'll try to kill the messenger. I will do more research on him and may buy his latest book.

    Prof. Rodriquez thesis was on Buddism so no expectation of unbiased view of objective thought
    Prof. Freeman got her masters and Phd at Emory Univ., which is as flaming liberal biased as can be. Emory was endowed (current value more than $6 Billion) unrestricted in '79 Coca Cola stock by Robert Woodruff and they haven't had a rational or competitive thought since. I consulted there for years and it's hard to imagine a more messed up administration (with the possible exception of the accountants.)

    Isn't mathematics one of those White Other Social Constructions, too? I remember hearing that black students in California were complaining that the Asian kids stole all the good grades in math. Asians are honorary white, aren't they?

      That reminds me...
      We have had a generation of common core math indoctrination, where they not only teach you what to think and how think it, but even if you got a right answer, you could be marked wrong if you didn’t think it their way.

      Just a stepping stone for something bigger in the future.

      Me dino has been to enough Chinese restaurants to discern that not all Asians are on top of the food chain for smarts.
      Nevertheless, brainy or not, I admire the work ethic exhibited by most Asians.

    And if it weren't for that White European and the advancements they led, we'd all still be tribalists, scratching out a subsistence living with spears and wooden hoes.

    What a bunch of idiots.

        Slave reperations sought by moochers about 153 years after the fact.

          Strange that they don’t seem to place much blame on the South that were full of those pro-slavery Democrats.
          Or have any gratitude for the anti-slavery North.

          Or even recognize the fact that people of many races and colors owned slaves of many races and colors.

            Yep, no reparations are being sought from the African tribes who preyed upon other tribes for slaves sold to those wonderful "religion of peace" Muslims and those by contrast mean and cruel white people.
            You know, those same racist Republicans who were slaughtered due to using Napoleonic battle tactics but still managed to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation that dissolved the property rights of Southern slave owners.
            That would include a black plantation owner I read about. He had slaves and descendants who can for the sins of their forefather pay reparations also.

    Looks like more inculcation of the New Jim Crow by taking the propaganda to a new irrational level.

    Also, I suppose, in a way they aren't really lying. After all, in a profession protected by unions, tenure, and political correctness merit IS increasingly meaningless for them. Therefore, why not try to impress the same meaningless mental blank-out on everyone else as well - and get a very big MEANINGFUL paycheck to boot? Professional looters know how to loot, for sure!

    Thomas Jefferson once wrote that all that was necessary for a government to become tyrannical was to take over the schools and teach that tyranny is freedom and the masses would grow up and demand it. Violence would not be required to achieve the destruction of liberty. America is there.

      The wisdom of our forefathers never ceases to astound me dino.
      Think about it. These guys started out as the subjects of a king whose communications technology amounted to town criers and printing presses slowly loaded by blocks of wood with letters on them. Transportation required feet or horses or unfurled sails.

    ...and the solution to this horrible situation is..?.. May I guess that the usual Marxist ideals will be suggested...of course, with the teachers of this class and those who attend in charge....and, this time, it will be done right!

      For some reason, Jonathon Swift’s “A Modest Proposal....” is coming to mind... Maybe all of the white people need to be eaten to resolve their unredeemable sins of skin color. The trouble is, the type of hunger presented by these witless boobs never ends. They ALWAYS end up eating their own.

      Loudly point out the obvious racism! How can you tell if a person is being racist? Well, if you are race colorblind it’s obvious. If you believe that all races have equal individual rights it’s obvious.
