It’s finally happened: the Social Justice Left has openly called objective “truth” a racist “myth” steeped in “white supremacy.”
What else could it be?
After outgoing Pomona College President David Oxtoby sent a school-wide email rebuking the actions of violent protesters attempting to shut down conservative journalist Heather Mac Donald’s speech, three self-identified “Black students” triggered by the pro-First Amendment stance penned a letter to Oxtoby, condemning his words, and, yes, openly labeling “truth” a racist “myth.”
“We, few of the Black students here at Pomona College and the Claremont Colleges, would like to address several of the points made in your ‘Academic Freedom and Free Speech’ email sent out to the entire student body on April 7, 2017 in response to a student protest against Heather Mac Donald’s talk at Claremont McKenna College’s (CMC) Athenaeum,” opens the letter.
As the letter continues, the students explain that free speech has been “appropriated by hegemonic institutions” and should ultimately be curtailed because “it has given those who seek to perpetuate systems of domination a platform to project their bigotry.”
