Angry white male studies is the latest worthless college course

 

Last updated 4/19/2019 at 11:26pm



While much has been written about worthless college courses, the “Angry White Male Studies,” course, which will be offered at the University of Kansas in the fall 2019, takes the cake. It is right up there with a course offered at Stanford University, “White Identity Politics,” and one at Hunter College in New York called the “Abolition of Whiteness.”

How is any of that garbage going to help a young person land a good job and succeed in life unless one is seeking employment as a race-baiter? It might help if they are applying with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/Push Coalition or Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, nonprofits in the business of shaking down businesses for contributions, concessions or contracts. Rather limited career, don’t you think?

The “Angry White Male Studies” course requires students take “Women, Gender and Sexuality” 101 or 102 as a prerequisite. But of course. What a natural transition between gender studies, i.e., radical feminism and hating white men. They go hand in hand like coffee and doughnuts, sugar and cream, pancakes and syrup. However, the aforementioned examples are sweet. These new college courses are designed to leave students with a bitter taste in their mouth, although anyone crazy enough to sign up likely already has one.

For the record, white men have a right to be angry, although most are pleasant, hardworking and honest folks. However, they are the only group with which one can lawfully discriminate. White men also are the only group that is socially acceptable to portray as lazy or dumber than dirt in television shows or commercials. Seriously, are we to believe that white men are too stupid to run a dishwasher, find a plumber or buy a car online? Enter a “smart woman” to save the day.

White men have to be near geniuses to get into a prestigious college, due to quotas and set asides. They have a much less chance of getting a promotion, contract or grant. They are among the last candidates considered for hire. Due to the way our civil rights laws have been interpreted by the courts, a company can be found guilty of discrimination unless it can “prove” itself innocent. This interpretation has turned the legal system upside down. Therefore, if a company can hire someone who is a minority or a woman, it’s an advantage. There is no advantage to a company if it hires a white male.

What would happen if one of our universities offered a course on “Angry Black Men?” Can you imagine the outrage that would follow?

Jussie Smollett would be the perfect poster child for such a course. He enjoyed the privilege of wealth and fame. Still Smollett was so angry that President Donald Trump was elected over former President Barack Obama’s chosen successor that he staged a hate crime and got off, virtually scot-free, due to his political connections.

What would happen if a university simply offered a course on “Angry Women?” After all there are plenty of examples they could study. I offer the infamous “pussy” march in Washington as a case in point. Hundreds of thousands of angry women turned out to protest the results of the 2016 election and demonstrate against the new president, presumably because of a crude locker room comment he made to a guy more than a decade ago. Funny, I didn’t see any angry feminists demonstrating against former President Bill Clinton for having sex with an intern while in office – in the White House – no less.

These angry women routinely rail against Trump, hurl spurious charges against him and call him all sorts of vile names, simply hoping something will stick.

So why do courses that seek to denigrate men and to satisfy angry women prevail in our colleges and universities?  Perhaps it’s simply the shift in the marketplace. Women now attend college in greater numbers than men and earn more advanced degrees. Unfortunately, if someone majors in feminist studies or humanities – the umbrella under which most of these worthless “Looney Tunes” courses fall – she likely will never see a proper return on her investment.

Instead these angry women will be locked into teaching these same idiotic college courses to more unsuspecting students and the cycle with repeat itself.

Fortunately, more and more women are turning their attention toward degrees with a future: science, technology, engineering or business. Others simply bypass college and learn a good trade.

If you look for discrimination, whether a man or woman, you will find it. If you leave anger behind and look for opportunities, they will find you.
