A course at Hobart and William Smith College in Geneva, New York, argues that the concept of “objectivity” is a myth created by white people. The course, which was first reported on by Toni Airaksinen of Campus Reform, is entitled “White Mythologies: Objectivity, Meritocracy, and Other Social Constructions,” and taught by Kendralin Freeman and Jason Rodriguez of Hobart and William Smith College. The course’s description dives into the teaching pair’s perspective on various “white mythologies,” a phrase popularized by postmodern thinker Jacques Derrida that refers to the set of beliefs and cultural truths of white Westerners. ” This course explores the history and ongoing manifestations of “white mythologies” — long-standing, often implicit views about the place of White, male, Euro-American subjects as the norm against which the peoples of the world are to be understood and judged. Students will explore how systematic logics that position “the West” and “whiteness” as the ideal manifest through such social constructions as objectivity, meritocracy, and race, and as justifications for colonial interventions, slavery, and the subordination of women.” Freeman and Rodriguez and drawing on Derrida’s belief that the West’s cultural belief in “objective” truth and reason is a thinly-veiled scheme to oppress various minority groups. Hobart and Smith College is hardly the first college to push the notion that truth and objectivity are rooted in bigotry. In 2017, students at Claremont McKenna College argued that “objective truth” is a social construct devised by “white supremacists” to “attempt to silence oppressed peoples.”
Wow.. You really can’t make this stuff up, folks. And here I thought you went to college to actually to become smarter. Sounds like kids in these courses are about to lose IQ points by the dozens. I suppose 2+2=4 is also a “white myth” according to these idiot professors. Unreal..
A South Carolina woman who said being pulled over for speeding by a “white cop” was a “traumatic experience” is having her story questioned after police body camera footage from the incident showed a less intense series of events unfolding. Dawn Hilton-Williams, in a Facebook Live video on April 27, accused a Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office sergeant of racism after she was ordered to sign a summons asking her to appear in court or pre-pay a traffic ticket. The officer said he clocked her going 70 mph in a stretch of rural Route 58 in Virginia that has a 55 mph limit. “It doesn’t matter how polite you are, it’s all sick, crazy bullying and the police are ridiculous,” Hilton-Williams says in the 11-minute video, at times wiping tears from her face and speaking in a frightened tone. But in video footage released Monday by the sheriff’s office, when confronted with the summons Hilton-Williams immediately starts asking the officer where are there signs that say the area has a 55 mph limit. “You didn’t give me a warning, you gave me an actual ticket?” she asks the officer. “Yeah, no warnings today ma’am,” he responds. The exchange then gets testier as Hilton-Williams refuses to sign the summons. “What you are signing here is a promise to come to court or a promise to pre-pay. It’s not an admission of guilt. It’s only a promise to me that you’re gonna get it taken care of by either coming to court or pre-paying it,” the officer is heard telling her. “If you refuse to sign the summons, at this point, I’m going to have to get you outside of this car, I’m going to place under arrest and take you in front of a magistrate. I will get your vehicle towed and go from there.” Hilton-Williams then interrupts the officer and says someone is on her phone. “You do not have a choice but to sign this summons,” he says, brushing off the apparent distraction. “So once again you’re signing right there so thank you, I knew you were going to sign it. Thank you very much.” After signing the paperwork, Hilton-Williams drove off and took to Facebook Live to blast the officer. “I have had a traumatic experience and I want the people who are not African-American who know me to really get where we are coming from,” she says. “When I saw the police pull up behind me, the state trooper, I was immediately afraid.” “This is the area I’m in,” she says, panning the camera around to show the rural roadway. “In the middle of, this kind of stuff. This is where I am, so it’s not like I’m not afraid, because this is where we got lynched.” She adds: “Do any of my white friends…feel like that when they get pulled over?…Are they afraid that they are never going to come home or see anybody else because police are at the door saying [I’m going] to pull you out of the car? Why do only African-Americans and people of color know what I’m going through right now?” Hilton-Williams finally concludes that “when you’re African-American and you get pulled out of the car you get shot, or you get tased, or you get Sandra Bland, if you are a woman.” The video was widely shared online, and Brunswick County Sheriff Brian Roberts told WVTR that he looked into the matter after receiving dozens of calls from concerned residents. “I don’t know what she has been through and I don’t know her life history, what I worry about is this kind of thing will inflame situations where you see cops in other states have been executed while they were just eating lunch,” he said. Roberts added he went over the footage of the incident and his officer did nothing wrong.
Of course he didn’t. She was doing 70 mph in a 55 mph zone and got pulled over. Race had NOTHING to do with it…and she knows it. But, she wanted to place the race victim card, and now it’s blown up in her face. To see the video, click on the text above. She really is the poster child of a entitlement-minded, lying, hypocritical, black racist woman.. What a piece of garbage! Kudos to the officer for keeping his cool and being a professional law enforcement. They oughtta give him a promotion or medal for putting up with crap like that. Unreal..
Allegations of racism have erupted over the indictment Friday of NFL star Michael Bennett, even though he’s being prosecuted by a liberal, Soros-backed district attorney for a crime against a black victim. Progressive activists and commentators weighed in after the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end was indicted by a grand jury on a felony count of injuring a 66-year-old disabled black woman last year at Super Bowl LI, calling the charge “bogus,” “BS,” and a “set up.” Columnist Shaun King said Mr. Bennett was charged because he “touched a woman’s shoulder,” although Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said the paraplegic woman, part of the stadium security team, suffered a sprained shoulder after Bennett shoved her as he tried to get onto the field after the game. According to the chief, Mr. Bennett told a police officer at the scene, “F— you” and “You all must know who I am, and I could own this motherf—er. I’m going onto the field whether you like it or not.” His defenders argued that the 32-year-old Philadelphia Eagles player was targeted as a result of his race and his social-justice activism. Mr. Bennett has refused to stand for the national anthem and last year accused Las Vegas police of racial profiling after he was briefly detained. At the same time, Mr. Bennett could have hardly drawn a prosecutor more sympathetic to the rights of defendants than Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg. She ran in 2016 on a reform platform that called for reducing incarcerations, aided by a half-million dollar ad buy from Democratic megadonor George Soros via his Texas Safety and Justice PAC as part of his national effort to elect progressive prosecutors. Ms. Ogg has since been accused of being soft on crime by seeking alternatives to prison such as deferred adjudication, including in a case last year in which a man shot at deputies but received no jail time, which she attributed to his mental-health issues, according to ABC13 in Houston. The county’s first openly lesbian D.A., Ms. Ogg fired 37 experienced prosecutors shortly after taking office and replaced them with “a far more diverse group of experienced and talented lawyers,” she told the Texas Observer. “I also am trying to diversify our lower ranks because we need prosecutors who the public can relate to,” said Ms. Ogg in the July 26 interview. “If they’re all Caucasian, and they’re all straight out of law school, they’re just not going to have the life experience that I think is important when you have people’s lives in your hands, like we do.” She released a statement Friday saying that Mr. Bennett was told by security staff to use a different entrance as he tried to gain access to the field for the post-game celebration at NRG Stadium in Houston. “Instead, he pushed through them, including the elderly woman who was part of the security team,” said the DA’s statement. The charge of “intentionally and knowingly” causing “bodily injury to a person 65 years or older” carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
On word…karma! Normally we don’t do the whole human interest story thing here at The Daily Buzz. But, ya gotta love the irony here.. This loser of an NFL player is shamelessly trying to play the race card. But, the victim is a black elderly woman, and the prosecutor is a lesbian minority herself. So, that’s blowing up in his face.. DOH!! Just another entitlement-minded, America-hating, black racist, NFL loser… For more on this story, click on the text above.
