U. Iowa Prof Laments ‘White Fragility’ in America
“What’s in your wallet? Not much green, but a whole lotta white,”
Isn’t it wonderful how some people in academia are working to bring the American people together?
The Daily Caller reports:
America Is Now Besieged By Pathological ‘White Fragility,’ Taxpayer-Funded Professor Claims
A taxpayer-funded education professor at the University of Iowa has published an article declaring that “white neurosis and white fragility” have become “widespread phenomena” in the United States in the wake of the 2016 election.
The professor is Leslie Ann Locke.
The article, titled “What’s in your wallet? Not much green, but a whole lotta white,” appears in the academic journal Whiteness and Education.
Also, there is an academic journal called Whiteness and Education. It focuses on advancing “critical understandings of the construction and deployment of Whiteness in educational contexts.”
Locke questions “white norms and values” in the article, according to Campus Reform.
The “white neurosis” Locke believes is gripping America is a disorder which causes white people to behave “defensively, aggressively, or defectively” when someone brings up “white privilege.”
“White neurosis” resembles “white fragility,” Locke explains. “White fragility” is a term which describes the way white people “freak out” when someone like Locke suggests they benefit from “white privilege.”

So. Tired. Of. This. I’m so privileged that I was unable to secure a permanent position in higher ed, even though I have done VALID research and published in top tier journals. I’m so privileged that I’ve been turned down by some of the most prestigious institutions in the country. Oh, did I forget to mention I’m white?
Thank God you got a real job and became a normal person.
Want to see a credentialed idiot? Look no further than here:
Q: What’s more useless than t*ts on a boar?
A. An assistant professor.
Q: What’s the definition of a Ph.D.?
A: A person educated far above his/her level of intelligence.
“Two assistant professors are walking along a street. One of them suddenly says, ‘Hey look, a dead bird!’ The other prof looks up and says, ‘Where?'”
This is not an idiot. It’s a member of a lowly group of immoral hypocrites that is ready to play “good for thee, but not me” on every other white person in America to attract easy praise from the vocal minority and elevate their own status.
It’s not stupidity…it’s something far, far worse.
This person is teaching BS and divisiveness at the same time. Anybody else see this?
How does one react “defectively”?
She’s merely preaching the Frankfurt School’s line of cultural Marxism, which is rooted in Freudian pseudoscience.
