Prof Calls Student’s MAGA Hat an ‘Undeniable Symbol of White Supremacy’

Prof Calls Student’s MAGA Hat an ‘Undeniable Symbol of White Supremacy’

“an undeniable symbol of white supremacy and hatred toward certain nonwhite groups.”

This is one of the reasons people are so on edge over politics. One side is repeatedly accusing the other of pure evil.

The College Fix reports:

Professor denounces student’s MAGA hat: ‘Undeniable symbol of white supremacy’

A law professor recently declared in print that a student’s “Make America Great Again” hat constituted “racial antagonism” and stood as an “undeniable symbol of white supremacy.” The professor offered no evidence that the student wearing the hat was racist.

Jeffrey Omari, a visiting assistant professor at Gonzaga University School of Law, wrote in the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal that near the end of the past academic year he witnessed a student come to class wearing a “Make America Great Again” or “MAGA” hat. The hat, which is bright red with bold white lettering, is a distinctive symbol of the Trump presidential campaign and of Donald Trump more generally. Omari refers to the slogan as “an undeniable symbol of white supremacy and hatred toward certain nonwhite groups.”

Laying eyes on the student’s hat (and confessing that he “knew this student’s political leanings from our various class discussions”), Omari writes: “…I was unsure whether the student was directing a hateful message toward me or if he merely lacked decorum and was oblivious to how his hat might be interpreted by his black law professor. I presumed it was the former.”

Projection.

Yeah, I want watermelon with that!

Pompous professor is not a professor but is a visiting ASSistant.

Given the declining enrollment in law schools and epidemic closing of such facilities, Professor Pompous might want to take some courses in public administration and maybe find employment reading arcane real property descriptions or doing title abstracts.

As to his being black? How in the unholy hell can that be anyone else’s concern?

Damn, ‘Bro, signify! Show us the content of yo’ character.

Trump’s minority vote is going to be surprisingly high IMO. If only more of them would display the hat loud and proud, we could put an end to the nonsense.

    I agree with you about the hats, but, wearing a MAGA hat some places is like wearing a kippah in Paris or Malmö.

This is all getting so tiresome. Maybe what needs to happen is, colleges need to hold a “1955 Week”. Treat all of the black students the way they were at least allegedly treated 64 years ago. Let them see how good they have it today.

More like proof of the professor’s idiocy.

Of course it’s deniable and it is and should be denied. Their evidence to support this claim is remarkably thin. It requires a larger than usual dose of leftist reading between the lines and dog whistle detection to reach their conclusion.

And that is exactly why I stopped reading the ABA Journal and let my membership lapse. If things are as they were when I last read it, there will be a handful of on-line commenters taking issue with his assertion, and many times more taking the assertion as self-evident, accusing those who disagree of being racist, old, male, white and privileged, and inviting anyone who disagrees to leave the ABA. Then the ABA wonders its membership is declining.

Jeffrey Omari, a visiting ass-sissy professor demonstrates that he/she/it is a living personification of unreasoning bigotry.

Personally, I would make it extremely clear to omari that my MAGA hat was, indeed, directing a hateful message toward him – and anyone else who hates America.
