The Problem of the University of Wisconsin-Madison

It really is a horrible state of affairs being a target of racism but at least it has become an equal opportunity prejudice. 

A college course was taught this spring at the University of Wisconsin-Madison titled "The Problem of Whiteness." 

No, the course isn't about the susceptibility of skin cancer Caucasian people face being out in the sun--that would be an acceptable thesis--but it's about the notion of 'white supremacy.' 

The African Cultural Studies course hopes to indoctrinate malleable minds to "understand how whiteness is socially constructed and experienced in order to dismantle white supremacy," the online description states.

If the course focused on any other racial group, say for instance, blacks, it would have been banned in a heartbeat, but since Obama was in office, the new cocktail party conversation is how white supremacy is due to a power imbalance, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. It's the new, more acceptable racism.

The malleable minds loved the course taught by Professor Damon Sajnani, a self-loathing white guy. The course requires no creative or analytical thinking, just the absorption of racial bias and the regurgitation of it on exams.

"Student feedback was overwhelmingly positive--students said they found it valuable to examine majority cultures and how power imbalances are created, sustained, and challenged in societies around the world," a spokesperson told The College Fix.  

After Sajnani debuted the class, Wisconsin state lawmakers denounced it and said it could affect future funding for the school. 

State Rep. Dave Murphy raised concerns about several tweets from Sajnani's Twitter account that he said showed the professor "condones violence against law enforcement and compares white voters to the KKK."

One of Sajnani's tweets shown by Murphy includes a photo of news coverage from the 2016 fatal police shooting in Dallas. Sajnani tweeted: "Is the uprising finally starting? Is this style of protest gonna go viral?"

Governor Scott Walker called the course "goofy" but said school funding should be based on "the broader issue of accountability and performance."

In a phone interview with The College Fix last year, Sajnani said his course explores how white privilege and white power are connected and that it looks at how students can work for social justice.

The definition of social justice is based on 'equal outcome' rather than 'equal opportunity.' This means that everyone must end up with the same result, regardless of input, regardless of ability. Income redistribution is one way equal outcome is achieved--if you have ten dollars and I have one, I get to take four of yours.

That is simply immoral and evil.
