Iowa Professor: ‘White Marble’ of Ancient Statues Supports White Supremacy

A University of Iowa professor argued that the appreciation of beauty inspired by the “white marble” of classical statuary supports white supremacy today.

“The equation of white marble with beauty is not an inherent truth of the universe; it’s a dangerous construct that continues to influence white supremacist ideas today,” Sarah Bond, assistant professor of classics, wrote in an article for the art blogazine Hyperallergic.

    Reading these ridiculous college articles on white Priveledge makes me think I should start writing and submitting them for fun. I only graduated high school. I’ll give myself a fake name and credentials and write some garbage devoid of sense about how something is racist. Once it gets published, I’ll step out to say the emperor has no clothes. Leftists are so Painfully dumb

      Claim you got your degree from an islamic university, they will drink that up and never question your credentials because of islamiphobia.

      You could claim you have a degree from Damascus University – most of the records were destroyed so no way to check and they give ‘degrees’ in 2 years – Yes you could be a medical doctor in 2 years there or you could get your humanities in 2 years as well.

      Or there is also the ever popular IOU – Islamic Online University, they offer a degree in psychology. Study how to provide counselling and mental health using the Quran as a guiding document….

    Just when you think the lowest levels of stupididity have been acheived, someone comes along and drops the bar even lower.
    And this woman is an educator???
    People, have your children learn a trade. The university people are going to be so completely and utterly usless that they won’t be able to tie their shoes, let alone build or fix anything.

      yes, colours read better on a white substrate, yoko ono knew this and secreted her astounding lack of talent by exhibiting white on white paintings..and she sold a few!!

  • WalterBannon

    I guess all those liberal designers who tell everyone that White Kitchens are an in-trend must be racists.

    Do these azzholes stay up late and night and dream this sh*t up? Do they all sit around a table and try to come up with the next “white supremacy” bullcrap? Or maybe they are just mentally unstable and completely insane.

      Beats working for a living.

      If you have ever been to an art school/university. Yep they do, the biggest accomplishment for them is to sell a line of bull excrement that people will buy that’s about art or their latest project. Not only that, they need to sell it to government to get grants for their ‘art’.

        In my final year that was exactly what Art History was all about, including arcane cocktail sermons and the total embrace of the decadent and profane

        • Tooth&Claw

          I recall they had classes on how to apply for government grants for such.

            we had a T.A. that specialized, could not draw ,paint or sculpt but she was a hot damn at speaking bureaucratese

          • Tooth&Claw

            I had a foreign T.A. in chemistry that panicked when a girl set her own hair on fire, clueless as well as unintelligible.

        Mrs minuteman is a jeweler. She enters work in design competitions. The competitions have themes, so she makes a piece of jewelry and uses her true creativity to write an “artist statement” to explain how the piece relates to the theme. That is where the true creativity comes in. Or maybe not because there are websites that will generate one for you if you want.

        Once she made the silliest thing she could on a lark and submitted it.
        It got published in a book!! (500 Earrings, New Directions in Contemporary Jewelry Lark Books, 2007)

    Attacking ancient Greek sculptures? This is sexist and homophobic!

    It’s geology you idiots, not sociology. God help us.

  • ntt1

    How can a so called academic be so ignorant.? white marble was chosen because just like off white house paint it allowed pigments applied to the carvings to shine in glorious color. the remains of the original pigments are still there and are analyzed during cleaning and repair. What we now appreciate as sombre white statuary was ,in its day, a riot of gaudy color. Why is such a patently obvious fool being allowed anywhere near our children?

  • canminuteman

    “white marble” of classical statuary supports white supremacy today

    And here was me thinking it was work ethic and itellect.

    Refining sugar until it’s white is racist.
