Universities and the Corporate Cargo Cult of Anti-Racism by James Reed

     The mad globalism that stands behind the modern universities as their raison d’étre, has led to the Australian universities pushing to get their sacred overseas students back. And back they are a coming. Never mind that China looks like having yet another corona outbreak, this time, but who cares, it’s the money, bunny. Well, the logical conclusion of the international student racket is not to have any local students at all, really. If all it is about is making money, more money comes from fee paying international students than locals, and the Chinese all become migrants anyway, so no more locals. Yes, do it, shut down youth, show us what you are made of oh Dark Lords of Mordor! Have the guts! That will make the young folk happy, being instantly gutted, but that is just the Great Replacement, so get used to it! Why, we may even seem some interesting protests! Nay, not really, not by Aussies, surely.

     Anyway, the Covid-19 virus is not the only bug in the modern university system:

“Amid racial tensions in the United States, colleges and universities across the country have a new favorite metaphor: comparing the “virus of racism” to the novel virus that has upended the country. After George Floyd was killed while in Minneapolis police custody, the University of Michigan Engineering department called upon students to “help eradicate the virus of racism.” "Much like the COVID-19 virus, racist attitudes spread very easily and are very damaging.” “For over two months, we have been dealing with the coronavirus, a pandemic that has shaken the core of our institution and the world. It has been a lot to deal with; and has at times felt overwhelming. Yet during the past week, another virus reared its ugly head,” read the official university communication. "This virus is called RACISM," the statement adds. “Racism has been in the fabric of the country since its inception. It is so tightly entwined in our socialization that it has been second nature in driving behavior,” the message continued. “Systemic racism is very much like a virus. Much like the COVID-19 virus, racist attitudes spread very easily and are very damaging.” In a recent message to students, interim president Marica White of Saint Rose College in Albany, New York, also compared the COVID-19 pandemic to the “virus of systemic racism” in America, stating “one is novel and invisible, the other is violent and imbedded [sic] in the culture and history of our nation.”

White went on to blame the impact COVID-19 has had on the African American community on “the imbedded inequity in our country,” mainly blaming what she believes are systemic injustices. Dean Barbara Rimer at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill stated in an official June 1 university communication that “racism is a public health emergency” and that “like a virus, racism is insidious and can damage everything it infiltrates.”Rimer added that law enforcement violence is a “symptom of the racism that still marks too many facets of modern American society,” and called “racism” a “disease, a virus that has infected America for 400 years.” In a similar communication, Chapman University dean Rev. Gail Stearns remarked to the university community about both the challenges of coronavirus and the “virus of racism that has haunted us for generations.” Her concerns about the coronavirus focused largely on the unequal distribution of its impact on individuals, noting that African American communities were hit harder because they “lack access to basic nutrition or healthcare or education.” “I have come to believe that in the face of COVID-19, we are all experiencing grief. Almost every one of us is experiencing the stress of loss. But stress is not distributed equally in our society,” wrote Stearns, before she went on to refer to racism itself as a “virus” and urge the community to “ no longer collectively avoid the reparation of years of injustice.”

     Ok the usual stuff; boring. But talk is cheap; the universities are still ivory towers, no matter how much they have guilt ridden academics preach peachy, trendy pc bs. What I would find really interesting is for the urban terrorists to siege some of the top universities and make these into, say, homes for the poor and refugees, not that I want this of course. In winter, the library books would no doubt be burnt in 44-gallon drums to keep folk warm, the flames licking the cold night air, flickering up into the darkness. I imagine that left wing and feminist texts would burn with a holy glow.
