“Scientists invented race as an explanation for social inequality,” she said. Later, she reaffirmed this and said “there is a whole system designed to keep black children from succeeding, again and again.”

Roberts offered her insight to the overarching question. “What I’ve realized is it’s not so much about … thinking black children are inferior,” she said, “It’s about not wanting to confront white privilege and power.”

The white professor who quit her full-time position to tour the country, leading seminars on “white fragility,” asked for whites in the room to come forward.

The book, Promoting Social Justice Through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, published by Indiana University Press, was spearheaded by Georgia Southern Professor Delores Liston, and Regina Rahimi, who teaches at Armstrong State University.

Pro-life student group wins settlement after professor tries to kick away chalk messages

A California professor who is seen on video trying to censor pro-life students drawing with sidewalk chalk has been ordered to undergo First Amendment training and pay $17,000 as a result of a district court settlement.

Fresno State University public health professor Dr. Gregory Thatcher recruited students from his class to help deface the Fresno State Students for Life sidewalk chalk.

Thatcher allegedly harassed and intimidated the group, accusing them of chalking outside the free speech zone on campus — which hadn’t existed at the school since 2015.

CUNY Prof: ‘The White-Nuclear Family Is One Of The Most Powerful Forces Supporting White Supremacy’

The “White Lies” author said last week on Twitter: “I mean, if you’re a white person who says they’re engaged in dismantling white supremacy, but + you’re forming a white family + reproducing white children that ‘you want the best for’ – how is that helping + not part of the problem?”

Why Should We Care About Crackpot Professors?

There is an article each week about some left-wing professor spouting some nonsensical theory that denigrates American society, portraying a dystopian nightmare filled with a white patriarchal system of oppression, hell bent on terrorizing women, minorities, and anything else non-white male. Townhall has written multiple articles about such professors.

One reader asked why is it that we highlight these stories. In other words, “Who cares?

Why It’s Cruel And Stupid To Politicize Marriage And Hard Work As ‘Racism’

These law-school faculty prove the Left has become so Puritanical and rigid that any positive reflection on the post-war period is immediately ‘racist.’ This isn’t history—it’s religion.

Thirty-three professors at the University of Pennsylvania’s Law School have lost their minds in response to their colleague Amy Wax, who published a piece stating something apparently atrocious: Culture matters for human flourishing.

In response to this simple claim, the university erupted in petitionscondemnation, and a spluttering of essays that accomplish very little apart from signaling leftward piety (hereherehere, and here). These precious articles represent the academy’s bad-faith efforts to traduce one of few un-silent conservatives on campus, symptomatic of the intellectual dilapidation in the modern academy.

Your oppressive cisgendered heteronormative patriarchy is making your transgendered dog crazy

Academics claim SEXISM is turning dogs crazy – because pooches struggle to meet ‘gender stereotypes’

Sexism is apparently bad for dogs.

Academics Paul McGreevy, from the University of Sydney, and the University of Wollongong’s Fiona Probyn-Rapsey have blamed gender stereotypes for harming the mental health of pooches.

‘While we know how damaging stereotypes can be for humans, dog owners may not consider just how their conceptual baggage of gender stereotypes affects the animals they live with,’ they said in an article published on The Conversation.

Dr McGreevy, a professor of animal behaviour, and Professor Probyn-Rapsey, a humanities academic, said many dog owners were forcing their ‘own gender identities’ on to their pets.

‘The lives of dogs depend upon how they conform to gender expectations,’ they said.

Bad sex

Australian universities appear to have completely capitulated to the virulently anti-male propaganda of radical feminists. Feminists increasingly control what is taught in our faculty departments, even influencing faculty recruitment, where preference is given to women and minority groups. Faculties are presently lowering academic standards in hiring in order to be politically correct. This necessarily lowers the quality of education offered to students and the standards of scholarly publication. The point is not merely that white males have been subject to systematic discrimination in higher education, though that is clearly unacceptable. Free speech is also under serious threat at Australian universities. ‘Speech codes’ and ‘sensitivity training’ severely limit what can be said on campus. And fines are imposed on many campuses for causing ‘offence’.

Oxford Professor: No Place for Conservative ‘Truth Deniers’ at Universities

Professor Leslie Green, the “Professor of Philosophy of Law” at Oxford University, argued in a recent blog post obtained by Campus Reform that “it is hard to be a campus conservative” not because universities are “bastions of liberalism,” but “because they are universities.”

Conservatives simply do not fit in because they are “truth deniers,” he claims.
