From Duke: Unethical Black College Student Demands Of The Week

Comments Constitutional Law Prof. Eugene Volokh:

Of course, recall that “threatens the safety of students of color” these days is certainly not limited to threats of physical attack, for which of course employees can already lose their jobs, but is used with regard to a wide range of speech that some people find offense or distressing. And of course offending or insulting students of pallor would remain just fine.

Of  course.

I wonder which college will be the first to tell such maleducated , arrogant, pampered, anti-free speech totalitarians to get back to class of face suspension.

Or if there will be one.

  1. “I wonder which college will be the first to tell such maleducated , arrogant, pampered, anti-free speech totalitarians to get back to class of face suspension.

    Or if there will be one.”

    And isn’t that the $64,000.00 question.

    Interesting about scrapping the SAT and ACT aspect of applications and making Duke free for anyone who’s family makes less than 75K a year. If that’s what they want, why are they at Duke? Why not simply attend their local community college?

  2. Ugh. I can see how this is going to end. The university president will cave in to these “non negotiable” (i.e. blackmail) demands. Then he will state something like “we must be responsive to the concerns of minority students.” And some departments like the classics will lose funding and fire professors who aren’t tenured.

      • Like many social reversals It’s OK to do blackmail if it moves the progressive agenda forward. And, the more OK it is to do the less OK it is to call it it’s real name. You could probably be forced out of your job if you used the word on a progressive campus.

      • Sure, amazingly enough. Black hat, black list (the TV how hasn’t been bombed yet), Code Black, blackball, Black Friday, blackout, blackmail all fine, and will be used on at least on blog until they come and drag me off.

        • Just checking. When I was in college the proto-diversity office had a poster on the door about gender-inclusive language talking about terms to eliminate, and the list was quite long: fireman, policeman, fisherman, man-hours, man of the cloth, family man, odd man out, man on the street, straight man, and so on. At least one professor warned her students from the get-go that one use of any such idiom, or one use of a male-only pronoun in a paper or essay, was a one step downgrade, i.e. A to A-, a second slip was a full grade downgrade, i.e. B+ to C+, a third slip was a fail, and a fourth slip in the same paper was an automatic zero. Needless to say everyone in that class very closely monitored their gender language above all.

  3. I wonder if the capitulations are related to any Dept. of Education requirements? As in, if “minority students’ demands” aren’t met, then DOE investigations and fines are liable to begin?

    As awful as the DOE has been in the past 7 years, I wouldn’t be surprised if this were the case. Wayne and Steve-O bring up the blackmail aspect – these schools may be staving off federal investigation and millions in defunding unless they capitulate. With this presidential administration, I’d bet a Perkins Loan on it…
