Professors at multiple universities came together on a Zoom panel Wednesday to discuss their work on achieving equity and equality during an anti-racism pedagogy conference. The panel attempted to 'out-woke' one another with their blatant white racism.
The conference began with a professor at Cornell University bragging to the panel about how often she cancels class in an effort to combat racism, says she has to teach minorities more "softly."
"Thinking about equality and equity and being attentive to anti-blackness, anti-asian violence, anti-trans violence, has meant that I have had to think about teaching more softly. And by that I mean cancelling class," the Cornell professor said. "I’ve cancelled so much class," she boasted. "We don’t need to do this. Go seek the comforts that exist."
The Cornell University professor explained that if she were to teach a class about "whiteness" she would show them the extremely racist hockey movie Miracle, which depicts the 1980 USA-USSR Olympic hockey game.
The Cornell professor said that she would have her students dissect the famous movie so they can "see how whiteness is tied to nationalism." Then the class would be better equipped at pointing out "whiteness."
She mentioned that teaching classes on "whiteness" is difficult because defense reactions are a "very real thing."
The professor said that students often accuse her of "having an agenda" when she teachers her curriculum on anti-racism, but it comes with the territory.
She went on to brag to the panel that she does in-fact have an agenda and it’s "called the syllabus."
Another professor that appeared as a panelist for the anti-racism pedagogy conference exclaimed, "hallelujah” when noting her recent move from University of Iowa to California State University, where her 30-person classroom now has only 4-5 white people.
In a gleeful manner, the Cal State professor said that the white students in her anti-racism classes appear to be "pretty down."
A professor at Texas A&M University quoted an author that said "suffering is necessary for white people" in order to bridge the racial divide.
The Texas A&M professor delved into discussions on how to “crack open” whiteness and asked the panel what efforts they are making to "bring white folks to a place of discomfort."
