University Course on Slavery will Add a Section on Donald Trump!

I don’t know about you, but I have all kinds of questions about Loyola University Chicago’s course on slavery. For example, does the course include the historical enslavement of people in other cultures or is it limited to the plight of blacks in America? Even better, does it cover black slavery in Africa, which endures to this day?

Stupid questions. The name of the course — “Slavery and Abolition Then and Now” — tells all. So do the qualifications of the instructor, Prof. John Donoghue, who according to College Fix, is an expert in the Atlantic slave trade.

Donoghue is quoted at the Facebook page of Black Students Matter LUC as explaining:

I have revised the last third of the course this spring in light of recent efforts to suppress the black vote, the increasing public exposure of the long-standing problem of racist police brutality, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, continuing structural racism — in the prison industrial complex, and the racist rhetoric and conspiracy theories that the Trump campaign has revived in our political culture.
