It is becoming more difficult for educators to elude the oppressive imaginings of diversity squads on college campuses.
Professors are loath to admit that the classroom has become a minefield where they routinely risk a combustible encounter with an angry student. You show me an angry student says a retired college administrator, and Ill show you a complaint about racial bias, he wrote in a now-deleted post.
Implicit bias, and the even more obscure, microaggressions, cover a nebulous area of academic terrain, but that doesnt stop students from harming careers of perceived offenders.
Educators are now caught in the crosshairs of todays grievance culture. There are legions of complaints filed by Social Justice Warriors (AKA students), but one recent action serves as an excellent exemplar of the lengths to which students will stretch to find something or anything to ensure the ideologic cleansing of their classrooms.
In this case, a physician-instructor learned she was on the receiving end of a complaint filed by a first-year medical student at a well-known university. Apparently, she had offended the students ethnic sensibilities. The drama ensued over the instructors selection of six slides (repeat six) showcasing a cross-section of patients for a basic course on taking a history and physical. The student felt her ethnic group was shortchanged with only one-slide featuring African-Americans.
When peering through a viewfinder of racism, where everything lacks racial parity, the student was bound to make a simple mathematical mistake. Not that it should matter, but the instructor -- who remains mindful of SJWs on campus -- deliberately selected two slides of African-Americans, two of Hispanics and one Asian. The token white patient made up the sixth slide.

Pot meet Kettle. This crap was started by so-called educators. Look at what they created. Students didn’t make this stuff up. They learned it. I love when the left eats their own.
Look I been here for almost 6 years and I ain’t any smarter than when I came! So dats proof you all are racist bigots!
Now I wants to be be smart or I wants my money back!
So when I went to Biology class in the 1980s and saw slides of Sickle Cells should I have cried at how they were all from black people? Academia is just accelerating it’s self-destruction kowtowing to the snowflakes and race profiteers.
Quick, someone find me a Safe Space and a puppy far away from the Bad Orange Man!
An old article, but shows what diversity has wrought. The USA is becoming the Tower of Babel.
