I wonder what LCPS, LCPS-Equity Commandos, and the NAACP think about Brown University Professor Glenn Loury speaking out against identity politics education and speaking the truth about today’s academic environment. He’s not towing the radical line, he’s blowing up their narrative. Everyone keeps screaming for more highly educated and successful black people, does Mr. Loury meet that criteria? Of course but that’s NOT what LCPS, LCPS-Equity Commandos, and the NAACP would have you believe. He’s an “Uncle Tom” or “a sell-out” or he’s engaging in the perpetuation of “white supremacy”.
Brown University Professor Glenn Loury is speaking out against identity politics education and speaking the truth about today’s academic environment.
“To teach people they are this, is criminal in my opinion, okay? We are to challenge them. They come in telling me that they are this or they are genitalia. That’s how they get to me at 18-years-old. They think they are these things. They haven’t read anything. They haven’t been anywhere. They haven’t done anything. I’m a teacher. My job is not to reaffirm them and their preconceptions. It’s to challenge them to outgrow them, their preconceptions,” Loury said. “We are entrusted to shepherd young minds into their maturity and to jump on a bandwagon and to fill their heads with slogans rather than challenging them with the best that human beings of any color have thought through the ages is a criminal abdication.”
Loury also addressed the “soft bigotry of low expectations” being pushed by lowering academic standards.
“The presumption that someone who happens to be brown should be exempted from the expectation of performance, patted on the head, rather than guided to the challenge, is racism!” Loury said. “So you want to bandy about the label racism, well then let’s get serious about who are the actual racists here. Very few of them are wearing pointy hats and holding bonfires. Most of them, many of them are on the Left.”
