This from today’s Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal:
“There’s no problem so awful, that you can’t add some guilt to it and make it even worse.” – Calvin from Calvin and Hobbs
Its been obvious for many decades that our education system is a hotbed of the social left. Now Canadian academia has moved sooo far to the left that it has fallen off of the edge.
What world lies out there, off of the edge? The world that George Orwell described in his book 1984. That is the world that Canadian academia now inhabit. Conform or else.
This ‘white settler’, ‘white privileged’ guilt trip is the in thing right now. Its virtue signalling.
Being an admitted racist was the in thing in Thunder Bay last fall. People and organizations were tripping over each other to admit to systemic racism. Once again, virtue signalling. Being an admitted racist was cool.
Yes, that is the world we are living in now.
It does not matter. Just apologize.
Because of who you are. What you are.
How is it my fault that I am who I am or what I am?
Its not. Just apologize.
No. I will not apologize for my life. My parents worked too hard to give it to me.
You should not apologize either.
Anyone who feels guilty about their ‘white privilege’ giving them such a large advantage in their education and career, should quit their jobs. All of their academic achievements and work are a sham.
Apologies are not enough to right such a grievous social injustice. Do the right thing. Quit.
Stand up and yell at the top of your lungs “I am a white settler with white privilege. I do not deserve my education. I do not deserve my job. In order to further reconciliation, I do now hereby resign. I quit”
Any admitted ‘white privileged settlers’ who do not quit their jobs are full of shit.
