Liberal Professors Say Bizarre Things–and Then Blame the Conservative Media for Reporting on Them

Blame the messenger. The conservative messenger, that is.

Sarah Bond, an assistant professor of classics, published an article in the online magazine, Hypoallergenic, pointing out that many statues in ancient Greece and Rome were painted in bright colors, and that we think of Graeco-Roman sculpture as being snow-white marble only because the colors have faded away with time. Hmm, I thought everybody knew that; I picked it up myself in ancient-history class during my sophomore year in high school. Still, it’s useful to be reminded that we don’t necessarily see what the original viewers saw when we look at an ancient artifact.

But Bond’s point wasn’t simply to point out that polychromy was a common feature of classical art. It was to argue that white marble equals white supremacy…

      Trump has enough on his hands draining the government swamp. We may have to wait for him to clean up Washington before he has the time to clean up academia.
