Britain’s oldest and one of its most prestigious universities has come over all Brack Obama and yielded sanity and academic impartialityto politically correct bigotry from a National Union of Students (Special Snowflake branch)campaign with rejoices in the title, ‘Why is my curriculum white? The snowflakes who are mainly white themselves but are too thick to have noticed that, are protesting against the alleged “Eurocentrism” of history teaching.
"The education we receive at many universities is one that has been largely shaped by colonialism,” asserts the National Union of Students-backed campaign. “It is one that places white, Eurocentric writers and thinkers above others without much concern."
Umm ... WRONG! The history curriculum in most British universities is based on British and European history over the past three thousand years, colonialism was only a small part of that.
The University of Oxford, which has also advised its constituent colleges to drop the use of “gender-specific” titles like Mr. and Mrs. after the students’ union told undergraduates to use the pronoun ‘ze’ in place of ‘he’ and ‘she’, will now replace European history examinations with a compulsory exam centred on black, Middle Eastern, Indian, and other Asian history, The Times reports.
Martin Conway, who chairs Oxford’s history faculty board, claimed changes intended to “bring in diversity in terms of the teaching of history” were prompted by a consultation with students, “quite a few” of whom were active in the ‘Rhodes Must Fall‘ movement.
"Consultation with students"? That's like asking nutters to advise on finding a cure for madness.
Oxford’s theology department was recently restructured so students could graduate without studying Christianity at all after their first year.
The move comes just one month after the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) Students’ Union complained that a “white curriculum” at the University of London felt “othering”, “alienating”, and “erasing” for many BME undergraduates.
Really? In that case out of consideration for their '#black' sensibilities we should advise them to fuck off and study at the University of Bongo Bongo land or somewhere simliar.
In a report titled ‘Degrees of Racism’, the union demanded more "research on whiteness" (?) and more black and minority ethnic faculty members, due to the alleged inability of white professors to relate to BME students.
"Both of my tutors are white men,” complained a black student quoted in the report. “How can I have a rapport and feel comfortable talking to a 60-year-old white man?" Somebody should have told the brainless little cunt, "You're not there to be best mates with your tutor sonny - boy, you're there to fucking learn.
Meanwhile, race-based campus activism is also stirring controversy in the U.S., where students at Evergreen State College barracked left-liberal biology professor Bret Weinstein and demanded his resignation after he opposed a ‘day without white people on campus’ event.
