The racism of the “tolerant” left has become an uneasy punchline for many in the conservative community, and the latest news from the world of academics just isn’t funny.
Groups such as Black Lives Matter have been working overtime to drive a wedge between Americans since their inception, blurring the line between hate speech and mere opinion. This uncouth and unacceptable tactic has its roots in the segregation of yesteryear, and the latest aggravation coming out of Pitzer college is reinforcing these dangerous ideas.
“If Scripps College is the most racist college in the United States, then its neighbor Pitzer College comes in a close second. After a few of its students refused to room with their white peers earlier in the school year, a new controversy arose when anonymous students spray-painted the following on the free wall at Mead Hall: “‘White Girl, take off your hoops!!!’
“When a student emailed the whole student body about what this meant, Alegria Martinez, a Pitzer College Resident Assistant (RA) and a member of the Latinx Student Union, wrote the following:
“‘[T]he art was created by myself and a few other WOC [women of color] after being tired and annoyed with the reoccuring [sic] theme of white women appropriating styles … that belong to the black and brown folks who created the culture. The culture actually comes from a historical background of oppression and exclusion. The black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings, (and other accessories like winged eyeliner, gold name plate necklaces, etc) are typically viewed as ghetto, and are not taken seriously by others in their daily lives. Because of this, I see our winged eyeliner, lined lips, and big hoop earrings serving as symbols [and] as an everyday act of resistance, especially here at the Claremont Colleges. Meanwhile we wonder, why should white girls be able to take part in this culture (wearing hoop earrings just being one case of it) and be seen as cute/aesthetic/ethnic. White people have actually exploited the culture and made it into fashion.'”
The American left, particularly the vocal “minorities”, have been hiding behind the idea that their opinion and emotions matter more than those who either disagree with them, or in this case, simply made a fashion choice that has irked these overreaching social justice blowhards. Again, this is how segregation takes root in our society, and the diligent anti-racism efforts made by Americans in the last 150 years is at risk of being buried by by these sorts of outrageous and unbelievable accusations.
By allowing radicalized leftists to decide which opinions will be considered fact, and which of those opinions is “offensive” is yet another divisive and ridiculous tactic used by the liberals to keep conservative, levelheaded Americans off-balance in terms of what they deem “acceptable”.
