(National Sentinel)Â Academia: A while liberal English professor atÂ Linfield College inÂ McMinnville, Oregon, has devised a ‘checklist’ she says is intended to let others know if they are a white supremacist.
In a Friday op-ed for Inside Higher Ed, Professor Reshmi Dutt-Ballerstadt claimed that following many years of thought and reflection,Â she â€œcreated a list of qualities and attributes of those that overtly or covertly support or contribute to a culture of mundane and everyday white supremacy within our institutions.â€
She then proceeded to outline 15Â â€œtroublesâ€ that she â€œidentified to help others in academe recognize your (un)conscious contributions to white supremacy,”Â Campus Reform reported.
The first item on the checklist is workingÂ â€œin a position of power in a predominantly white institutionâ€ while doing nothing â€œto change the white supremacist power structures within your departments, committees and institutional decision-making process.â€
The checklist also claims thatÂ wanting to nominate â€œâ€˜stellarâ€™ (mostly men) and obviously â€˜whiteâ€™â€ colleagues for leadership positions and awards is also a sign of aiding white supremacy, and implicitly supports â€œa logic of meritocracy that is built on this racist assumption that everyone has had the same access and opportunities.â€
â€œWhen it comes to understanding your own white privilege, you get very angry if a faculty member of color points out to you where and how your privilege is operating,â€ another bullet point says. â€œYou deem such critiques as â€˜uncivilâ€™ and as not supporting a collegial environment.â€
It’s not the first time someone in academia has pushed what are essentially communist ideas. Last fall, Penn State Prof. Angela Putnam wrote in an academic paper that the notion â€œif I work hard, I can be successfulâ€ is merely a product of white ideology.
Emphasizing a collectivist mindset, Putman introduces the notion that Americans are falsely “socialized to believe that we got to where we areâ€¦ because of our own individual efforts.â€
College Professor Says a Belief in 'HARD WORK' Leads to WHITE SUPREMACYA Pennsylvania State University professor thinks college faculty need to do more to undermine their students' belief in "meritocracy" and the value of "hard work." Can you imagine a teacher telling you that hard work is a bad thing? Where did these people come from? Like >> Share >> Follow >> The New Revolution II
