Professor who argued ‘all cultures are not created equal’ targeted for removal from teaching law class

A law group at an Ivy League university is encouraging the school’s administration to consider barring a professor from teaching a mandatory first-year law course, citing her “segregationist” worldview, “bigoted views” and “cultural elitism.”

In a statement posted to the group’s blog, the National Lawyers Guild chapter at the University of Pennsylvania Law School condemned Penn professor Amy Wax’s recent op-edat The Philadelphia Inquirer, in which Wax, along with a co-author, lamented the “breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture” and declared: “All cultures are not created equal.”

The members of Penn’s National Lawyers Guild wrote that Wax’s comments are a “textbook example of white supremacy and cultural elitism” and alleged she is a “segregationist” with “bigoted views.”

    Sounds to me that she has her head screwed right. Heartening to see some tiny glimmer of sense coming from a university.

      That’s why she will lose her job.

      I once had this type of conversation with a (admitted Socialist) university lecturer who had the view that all cultures are equal. I eventually got him to admit that all cultures are not equal by bringing up examples of cultures that he would definitely would never want to live in, but believe that ten minutes after he left me he would have forgotten all about our conversation and his acquiescence.

        next time cut to the chase, ask him/her, if all cultures are equal then how come you hate the nazis? and why do you reject the KKK? and how about cannibals, surely we would be enriched by their diverse practices? are these all not equal cultures who should be welcomed here according to the left’s logic?

        unfortunately they can not make the jump of logic from this to being willing to examine what Islamic culture preaches and reaching the conclusion that it should also be excluded from their imagined utopia as being an undeserving culture

          Yeah, I did use the Nazis, New Guinean natives, and Aztec cultures as examples of not-equal cultures.

          And yes, this was really about his belief that the islamic culture must be treated as equal to Western Civilisation.

    These lib university elites need to get out more, vacation in Saudi and Pakistan to experience the wonderful diversity first hand.

    The National Lawyers Guild is a long-standing commie organization and should be dismissed as such.

    Perhaps then they can explain why people from non Western cultures want to immigrate to Western culture countries with all the evil whites while the reverse does not happen.

      They can explain anything … to themselves. And then they will congratulate themselves for making a great argument.

      Sounds like a joke, but I’ve seen it in action.

        Sadly you are right, as I witness the same over and over.
