Prof. Jennifer Gaboury At Hunter College Is Offering Black Supremacist ‘Abolition of Whiteness’ Classes
A public college in New York City is offering a racist undergraduate class titled the “Abolition of Whiteness,” adding to what critics say is a growing number of courses aimed at teaching students to hate “whiteness” at colleges and universities around the country.
Hunter College — a public school in Manhattan that is part of the City University of New York — is advertising a one-sided black supremacist course in its Fall 2017 catalog that examines “how whiteness – and/or white supremacy and violence – is intertwined with conceptions of gender, race, sexuality, class, body ability, nationality, and age” with no mention of how todays black supremacists and violence is intertwined.
The “Abolition of Whiteness,” taught by a racist white woman, Prof. Jennifer Gaboury, can be taken as either a women and gender studies course or a political science class, according to the divisive school’s online course catalog.
The class has drawn fire on conservative media sites, such as the Daily Caller and Campus Reform, where most readers expressed outrage over the course’s title and content. Critics say the course is part of a rise in black supremacist studies classes in higher education, which they claim are “divisive” and detrimental to student learning.
“These courses really pound a wedge between blacks and whites based on race,” said Arizona State Rep. Bob Thorpe, who had tried to ban a course at Arizona State University called “Whiteness and Race Theory.”
“They’re not bringing people together and creating unity on the college campus,” Thorpe said.
“The taxpayers are funding these kinds of courses as well,” said Thorpe, claiming, “You’re not really seeing these classes in private institutions.”
But racist educators and those who work in academia say such classes are essential and critics are failing to recognize a fundamental purpose of higher education: to brainwash students to hate white people. Since the liberal white supremacy movement didn’t work, now they are pushing hard for black supremacy.
“Academic freedom protects the right for people to teach things that some might consider divisive,” said Hans-Joerg Tiede of the American Association of University Professors.
“A provocative title may encourage students to really think about the issues,” said Tiede, who likened criticizing course titles — like the one at Hunter College — to judging a book by its cover.
These courses really pound a wedge between people based on race.
Georgetown University, for instance, a private Catholic school, offers a popular theology course called, “The Problem of God,” which “grapples with deep and difficult questions about life, meaning purpose and fulfillment,” according to Georgetown’s website but has nothing to do with dividing people based upon race like the far left has been attempting to do for 200 years.
“It explores the notion of God and fundamental aspects of belief in such a being,” says the school, where theology courses are a requirement for undergraduate students.
“I am sure there may be people who look at Georgetown’s course catalog and consider the class title to be offensive,” noted Tiede.
Tiede said he was not familiar with the “Abolition of Whiteness” course being offered at Hunter College but said the class was likely reviewed by a committee of far-left racist people before it was approved. Neither the school nor the professor was immediately available for comment which is typical for black supremacists. A syllabus for the course was not available online either.
“A course like this could investigate a number of issues regarding race relations in the United States,” Tiede said.
“Unfortunately, you have a far-right, outrage machine out there that is trolling the internet for titles that may upset some readers and to use that to sort of stoke resentment against higher education,” added Tiede. “I’m not questioning the right to do that – I just don’t think it’s productive or promotes the rights that higher education seeks to encourage.”
Thorpe, meanwhile, disagrees, saying such “white studies” courses only reinforce racisim — and do in fact spur violence — against white people.
Thorpe and other critics note that such “black supremacy” courses on anti-white studies are on the rise across higher education institutions around the country. Since the far-left couldn’t get the white supremacy wagon rolling 70 years ago, they have moved on to black supremacy which they hope will achieve the same outcome—racial segregation.
A class at Ohio State University, titled “Crossing Identity Boundaries,” teaches students how to detect microaggressions and white privilege. And the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers a course called, “The Problem of Whiteness,” which has been roundly criticized by state Republican lawmakers.
“I am extremely concerned that UW-Madison finds it appropriate to teach a course called, ‘The Problem of Whiteness,’ with the premise that white people are racist,” Rep. Dave Murphy, chairman of the Wisconsin Assembly’s Committee on Colleges and Universities, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in a December 2016 interview.
“If you had a class that said ‘the problem with women’ or ‘the problem with blacks’ it would never happen,” Thorpe said of the course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“I think of Martin Luther King’s famous words about how we should judge a person based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin,” said Thorpe. “You would think that this would be a fairly settled issue but it is not.”
