    Every race has done "horrible things" in the past. Hell, the horrible things that white people were done concurrently with the horrible things black people did to themselves!!!!

    There were black slave owners! The FIRST slave owner in America was a BLACK GUY! Why isnt that in kids textbooks????

    Look at what Muslim terrorists are doing today....look at what blacks are doing today with Boko Haram and the genocide going on in Africa....there isnt even CLOSE to a WHITE equivalent to that today. Whites are the most gentle, welcoming, and tolerant people in the history of the world.

    True but it's not represented that way in the media,when some guy kills 3 Muslims it's a massacre,when Muslims kill 170 students it's an unpleasent incident.

    This thread reminded me this vid

    There is no crisis that capitalism can't get out of if the working class is willing to pay for it.

    Why do you think this is the case? Genetics?

    Not them alone. Civilization developed in various places.

    Yet, still is going to be teaching at Boston University, which is ridiculous. It's pretty obvious she hasn't exactly put in the level of academic research into her b.s. statement in the first place (hint: it isn't white masculinity that is the problem for American colleges, it's a culture of boozing and sex).

    Anyways, the biggest issue, how can she be expected to be impartial at all in the classroom? Hell to even give all the "nuance and complexity?" When you go so far as to avoid white businesses during MLK week, I fail to see how you can be expected to give students fair treatment in your classroom, especially if they dare disagree with what you believe.
    yeah, I would expect a professor of sociology to speak a little more eloquently on race. that's pretty ridiculous. I know that as a white male, if I had any classes scheduled with her I would switch out of them immediately because it really does seem like she's already destroyed any chance of having an open, accepting environment in her classroom. I would immediately feel uncomfortable knowing that she sees my white masculinity as the problem for America's colleges.

    I agree
