And not from the dwindling cadre of conservatives there. "The spring semester got off to a somewhat rocky start at Princeton University when a number of students walked out of a class in reaction to the instructors conduct," Princeton Professor Keith E. Whittington writes on the academe blog maintained by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). "Lawrence Rosen, the William Nelson Cromwell Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Princeton and an adjunct professor of law at Columbia University, was starting a class that he has offered before, 'Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy, and Pornography.'"
"Apparently as has he has done in the past, he introduced students to the subject matter of the class with various examples of cultural and linguistic taboos. Among those examples was the use of the N-word, which Rosen said in full. Some students objected, words were exchanged, some students walked out and went public with their unhappiness with what happened in the class. The university and the department chair defended Rosen's actions, but the story was picked up by the national media and eventually Rosen decided to cancel the class rather than try to continue under these circumstances." So ironic that it should occur in the university Woodrow Wilson once presided over.
"While perhaps not common, such controversies are hardly unknown," Whittington claims. "A few weeks after the Princeton incident, students complained to a dean when a law professor used the same word in class as part of a hypothetical, spurring a formal investigation of the faculty member. The previous semester, an English lecturer at Smith College was suspended for saying out loud the same word that was contained in a poem being discussed in the class. In the wake of the initial U.S. Supreme Court decision holding that burning an American flag is protected expression under the Constitution, a communications professor came under fire for burning a flag in her class on the limits of free expression and earned a formal rebuke by the state legislature." Now that last one sounds more like the academia weve come to know.
If black people can say “nigger” then so can I. And I will.
Until and unless they stop using the word then I will INSIST on using it.
I refuse to allow my rights to be made second-class to anyone else’s.
So now you can't say the word ever. Even if you are condemning it or using it in a hypothetical. This really is Orwellian.
How a White Man says the N-Word to a Black Man
“If black people can say nigger then so can I. And I will.”
It’s either a bad word or it isn’t. A particularly ignorant segment of a certain demographic group has embraced the idea of having permission to act in a way others who don’t share the colored “priviledge” may not. Its just like wearing their pants below their butt. Anything to insult Whitey. And after white men have been the ONLY race of people to abolish slavery, this is what we get?
“And after white men have been the ONLY race of people to abolish slavery, this is what we get?”
We have a programming system (public schools) which embeds dependency and slavery. (We used to embed Classical Christian curricula and family values in our little children—with free play and free association in intact families which embed natural laws (God’s Design)). Now, they are programmed “bots”, hyper-sexualized to destroy all virtue formation and normal sexual identity formation, and they will become people who can’t “think” for themselves-—they haven’t the tools, nor Wisdom of the Ages—so it will be back to serf/slave minds fed on instant gratification). The Christian worldview is being erased in our children, as I type (intentionally—for the NWO of total slavery and atomized, programmed, sterile “bots”).
Virtue is essential for Freedom (Socrates) and we have a culture/systems which destroy virtue formation in everyone. It is the Hegelian Dialectic forced onto us with the evil, bribed President Wilson and the satanic House of Rothschild. Slavery is just so much easier than freedom (responsibility).
Of course. Academia has to keep the race charade at the forefront. Otherwise.....
Academia is almost as racist as Madison Avenue.
Dr. Larry Rosen, keepin it REAL at PRINCETON...?
OMG that’s ridiculous..! Oh, man..!
Here is the ironic part, bet most black students are calling each other the N-word. When I taught on campus, it was nothing for black students to call each other the N-word; more hilariously, nothing to hear them yell such to each other across campus.....
