I think "Gender Studies" or "Interpretive Dance" is like one of my Professors once told us about Philosophy - The only thing a degree in Philosophy prepares you to do is teach Philosophy. It certainly seems to me that we have enough of them.


I think these people in gender studies might consider a degree in American studies instead and start appreciating the benefits they have by being born in the USA. If you need 4 years to study gender, you are already gender confused.

"African-American Studies?" People actually get degrees in this drivel? "Gender Studies?" You need four years of college to decide if you are a man or woman or something in between? These people should receive complimentary "I am a dumb ass" bumper stickers.
This professor is nothing but a racist asswipe.



At NYU, they started the department with History of Africa, a course supposedly for that. The 'textbook' was Inside Africa, by John Gunther, travelogue with interviews of political leaders of the time. It quickly became known as gut course, a term for an easy A.

Jesse Owens embarrassed Hitler by winning four gold Olympic medals. He was not among those invited to the White House. He found that he would be offered opportunities to speak but never offered a job. He was forced to take the freight elevator instead of the passenger elevator. Some of this has changed outwardly but the attitudes that caused this still remain. Germany has outlawed its Jewish hatred. The US can not seem to abandon its racism.

Germany dominated the 1936 Olympics.... There was no embarrassment there... Despite how some would portray it...

Germany had almost four hundred athletes, they won by shear numbers.
Despite Hitler's snub, Owens left a global legacy
As with the so-called Hitler snub, the narrative of the 1936 Olympics has been softened and simplified over the years. Despite the accomplishments of Owens and his teammates, Germany could still claim athletic superiority by winning the most medals.
More crucially, the Games succeeded as a form of propaganda, spotlighting the Nazi Party as welcoming and orderly even as it was on the precipice of launching another war and exterminating millions of Jews.
On a personal level, the spotlight of the Olympics was an outlier in the career of Owens, who returned to the cold reality of being a Black man in Great Depression-era America. His commercial opportunities failing to materialize, he was forced to race against horses and take on other demeaning jobs for years, until finally catching a break as a government ambassador in the 1950s.

Try going to live in an east Asian country moldyoldy. Xenophobia reigns. Korean famiies that have lived in Tokyo for seven generations are no considered Japanese. Ever check into the status of children of American GIs, black & white in Viet-Nam?

A black American Washington Post journalist went to Darfur to cover the massacres and said he was glad to have been born here. Progressives ostracized him.

We have done more than any country on earth to deal with our prejudices. Mull these things over.

There are many races gere and because of it racism will always be at issue .. You can not rule out hatred by disallowing it, it just means more will keep their hatred and not voice it..

With the attitude of our government administrations who promote hate, division, racism, socialism/communism, it will not ever just go away!! They need to foster it to have us do their dirty deeds and control us along with misleading us down the plank to our demise!! Country and citizen...

Play if you want to, I will not..I stand for our country, period!!!

The US has a history of being late to acknowledge prejudice and apartheid. South Africa is an example.

Why? All the courts seem to be on Soros’ payroll.

And I’m on your team. We are a country of many races and none of us will ever accept blindly. Acceptance and respect are things that must be earned. This Republic was built by European Americans who risked everything to create what we have today and must not be shunned by education today. Cancel culture is the single most absurd thing I’ve ever heard. We aren’t going to come together by living separately. We must come together as Christians and that’s my bottom line.

Asia, India , parts of Africa.... And even among the black community in the West...

Skin lightening cosmetics are a billion dollar industry...


I see a fortune to be made in skin darkening cosmetics taking tanning products to a new level. I think I'll start looking for investors. Oh wait, with this administration I could probably qualify for a government grant to pursue this 'noble' goal and I won't even have to show any real results.
