A Gentle Fuss: Playing politics – or – tomfoolery in Kingston

A Gentle Fuss: Playing politics – or – tomfoolery in Kingston: “The dean of Queen’s University in Kingston On. – a fine school, whatever my UWO-based readers may have to say about it between hisses and expletives – is coming under fire from her own subordinates for refusing to take part in the childish boycott of Israeli academics proposed by a group in the U.K.”

Margaret Aziza Pappano is the english lit Prof and member of the Queen’s Coalition for Racial and Ethnic Diversity challenging Queen’s President Karen Hitchcock’s condemnation of the racist Academic Boycott.

You can read more on Margaret Aziza Pappano’s views on the racist Anti-Israeli Academic Boycott here.

The Queen’s Coalition for Racial and Ethnic Diversity web site is here.

From their Mission Statement:

“Fostering an anti-racist perspective and motivation in an environment where subtle and covert everyday racism rather than overt malicious racism contributes to a broader climate of exclusion”

I think this translates as – “We can’t find any real racism to combat so we decided to just make stuff up.”

    Your citation from that group’s mission statement has intrigued me, I have to say. There’ll be a post about it in a little while, if you’d care to check it out.

  • Sounds good
