When you’re a liberal activist, life is super triggering. Just think about it for a second. Every day you wake up to something offensive. It’s a social affliction equal to being allergic to air. Constant bombardment of offensive things, day in, day out. So it makes sense for the SJW activists to do whatever they can to stop the triggering things from happening at all. Which is what happened a University of Kansas a professor who referenced the N word:
Dr. Andrea Quenette, 33, an assistant professor of communications studies, said that five students – whose names she does not know – filed discrimination complaints against her. She states that one student – who was not even in her class – started a #FireAndreaQuenette hashtag which students have been using on Twitter to urge university administrators to fire her.
First grievance here: terrible hashtag. No creativity at all. As someone who loves hashtags, I find this triggering.
Secondly, what actually happened in the class? An aggrieved student writes this in an open letter:
Those remarks began with her admitted lack of knowledge of how to talk about racism with her students because she is white. “As a white woman I just never have seen the racism…It’s not like I see ‘Nigger’ spray painted on walls…” she said.
Seriously, that was it. Stop looking for more things, that’s the gist. The professor referenced a word being used in a hypothetical situation to describe a hypothetical scenario of hypothetical racism. No really, that’s what it was. I poop swastica you not.
Now, according to the woman who wrote the open letter about the dastardly utterance of the N word (which I shall henceforth refer to as “nimble wimble”), the entire class was so offended they all burst into flames. Al Gore is scheduling a protest. The carbon emissions are terrible for the environment. I’m sure he’s gassing up his private jet in preparation.
But according to students who were actually in the class, the reaction to the teacher saying nimble wimble was more like…
Just because you write something about a teacher or a class’s reaction doesn’t mean it’s true. Just because you say nimble wimble, it doesn’t make you the devil. Especially if all you’re doing is saying you haven’t seen nimble wimble spray-painted on walls because of the supposedly rampant racism. In fact, if I’m being honest, I’ve also never seen nimble wimble written anywhere legitimate.
Which was, probably, the teacher’s point. If there’s so much racism going on, if
black people persons of color are so aggrieved, why hasn’t she seen evidence of it? Read Dear Mizzou Morons: You’re the ‘Boys Who Cried Racist’
That’s the million and a half thousand billion dollar question. And probably the real reason the five “offended” students are calling for the teacher’s head. HOW DARE YOU QUESTION THE RACISM! IT’S REAL. IT’S HERE. WE WILL SHAME YOU.
Meanwhile, the rest of us who have lives and do things besides get offended…
What about you? Have you seen nimble wimble spray-painted on walls? Tweet me at @Courtneyscoffs.
