During her third and final year at Harvard Law School, first lady Michelle Obama — then named Michelle Robinson — penned an article for the newsletter of Harvard’s Black Law Students Association (BLSA), arguing that Harvard and its students were perpetuating “racist and sexist stereotypes” by not intentionally hiring minority and female law professors on the basis of their sex or skin color.So the answer to "racist and sexist stereotypes" is to ... (wait for it)... enforce racism, in the form of requiring schools hire different races and sexes, regardless of any qualifications the faculty may think they have.
Carrying signs demanding an “end to racism,” they occupied the dean’s office for 24 hours and demanded that Harvard Law School hire 20 female or minority professors in the next four years as tenured, or tenure-track, professors. Seven of those professors, they insisted, must be black — and four of those seven female.I have never understood that line of thinking, because it always seemed more motivated by revenge than anything. In my little brain, I would think victims of anything are going to be sympathetic toward other people potentially becoming victims, and try to protect them, but time after time it has been shown that many people simply want someone else - anyone - to suffer.
In liberal America, we are still a nation of bitter, evil racists. Is there racism? For sure - but it's marginal. After all if something like 10% of the people believe we never went to the moon, some margin will apparently believe anything. There are, after all, the New Black Panthers with their incessant calls to go kill white babies and bomb nurseries (language is rough), as virulently racist a group as you'll find. But only in liberal America, the Panthers can't be racist because while they can kill you and bomb babies, they don't have political power.
In liberal America, we are such a racist place that only a staid white man can be elected president! I heard President Barack ... Hussein...... Obama say it himself.... Wait a minute...Isn't he something like 50% black? How did he....?
On tonight's GBTV, Glenn Beck did an epic rant on the topic of racism and just who we are as a people. This is a bit long at 18 minutes, but funny and worth watching.
