The Perks of Cancel Culture By Richard Miller (London)

According to anti-racist, so-called, academic trainers, “cancel culture,” the oppressive cancelling of the liberties of people opposing the current multicultural fascist regime, has its benefits. That goes without saying. Just as the STEM/ medical field is dependent upon Big Pharma for life sustaining grants, so  the other areas of academia are dependent upon elites funding the Great Replacement, as part of their ideology. Universities are clearly enemy occupied territory, have been throughout the post-World War II period, and must be closed down, as many are now saying.

“Cancel culture has “benefits”, academics at almost 100 UK universities have been told as part of an anti-racism course.

The Open University has devised a training programme titled Union Black, backed by £500,000 of Santander investment, which offers teaching staff lessons including “white people have a responsibility to solve the problem of racism”.

Academics taking the course are urged to become “active allies” in advancing racial justice, course materials reveal, and taught about the advantages of “cancelling” people and institutions.

Material in one online module states: “In relation to racial/social justice, cancel culture has been shown to realise benefits.”

Examples of these benefits in the material include “holding people or entities accountable for immoral or unacceptable behaviour” and “promoting collective action to achieve social justice and cultural change through social pressure”.

Course documents also add “motivating allies to reveal themselves”, as an advantage, along with “mobilising public opinion and sharing collective expressions of moral outrage”.

The documents urge “due diligence before effectively ‘cancelling’ someone”, which is an act of making an individual a pariah – often through social media pressure and sometimes to the point of people losing their jobs – that has become a growing issue in academia.

Kathleen Stock lost her role at the University of Sussex amid a social media storm over her comments on transgender issues.

The Union Black course, launched in 2021, has been taken up by select academics and students in around 90 UK universities, including Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, and Imperial College London.

Those taking the online course are offered insights on black history, race relations, unconscious bias, and “whiteness”.

Course material – drawn up by anonymous Open University contributors – states that “we still live in a racist society”, adding that “the black/white dynamic and structural racism” play a significant role in “all areas of modern life in western nations”.

It further claims that “white people have a responsibility to solve the problem of racism”, urging those taking the voluntary course to rate how active they are as “allies” in this struggle, with being “non-racist” deemed “not enough”.

Teaching staff and students taking the course are invited to sign a declaration of intent at the close of the course, in which they can acknowledge that “systemic racism is deeply entrenched in society”, and “racism may have influenced what I am being taught and what I am teaching”.
