Of course, as a (very) white guy, Professor Gregory Jay isn’t calling for the abolition of white people, because given his melanin deficiency, he’d be the first one on the bus, but for the notion that there is even such a thing as whiteness.
Because the only race on Earth that is racist is, of course, whites. There has never in the history of humanity been any racism that didn’t involve your lily white behind.
By the way, if we ban “whiteness,” wouldn’t that end up causing more cultural appropriation?
Also… we shouldn’t be atoning for literary works… we should be making our kids read them. Just like we shouldn’t atone for history, but instead teach it. Stop cutting down the fight of the people in history and have your kids know their history, which includes literary works. Know what people had to go through to get you to where you are today. Or is teaching history a threat? Are the regressive liberals so afraid of history because someone might realize it isn’t as bad as it used to be, or how things actually played out?
