White Racism Course at Florida Gulf Coast U. to be Guarded by Police

White Racism Course at Florida Gulf Coast U. to be Guarded by Police

“designed to show ‘the U.S. has been and remains a white supremacist society…’”

Why is academia so insistent on setting back race relations with divisive course material like this?

FOX News reports:

‘White Racism’ class at Florida university will be guarded by police officers

A Florida professor teaching a “White Racism” course designed to show “the U.S. has been and remains a white supremacist society” will have his classroom guarded by two police officers as his students meet for the first time Tuesday, the university has revealed.

Ted Thornhill, an assistant professor of sociology at Florida Gulf Coast University, said out of an abundance of caution he sent campus police 46 pages of disturbing emails and voicemail messages he received after the class was announced, The News-Press of Fort Myers, Fla. reported.

“We have prepared for any possible distractions related to Tuesday’s first class of the White Racism course, but we are expecting normal campus civility as our students engage in this and other courses at the spring semester’s start,” Susan Evans, FGCU’s spokeswoman and chief of staff, told the newspaper.

Thornhill said none of the messages threatened violence or a disruption of the class, but some called him racial slurs. A few prospective students told the professor they had safety concerns.

“The number of emails I got pales in comparison to the thousands and thousands of comments and post on all manner of social media and traditional media outlet websites that said things that were unspeakable,” he told The News-Press.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

I hate to say it Dr. King, but keep dreaming.

Thornhill is inviting racist cops to protect him and his students? Aren’t cops the core problem?

To a SJW, racism is not inherently evil. Racism is bad if applied by “whites” and good if applied by “blacks.” Never mind that there is no distinct boundary between the groups unless you are a racist. Thornhill tramples on Dr. King’s grave and the University is more than good with that.

I am having difficulty in making sense out of this whole taxpayer funded situation.
