Quiz at Vanderbilt U. Implies U.S. Constitution Designed to Perpetuate White Supremacy and Protect Slavery

“When one student answered ‘false,’ the question was marked wrong.”

When questioned about this, the school hid behind the tired trope of trying to ‘stimulate discussion.’

Parents need to start starving these schools of tuition dollars.

The College Fix reports:

Vanderbilt quiz: Constitution was ‘designed to perpetuate white supremacy’ and protect slavery

A quiz given to students at Vanderbilt University recently asked: “Was the Constitution designed to perpetuate white supremacy and protect the institution of slavery?”

When one student answered “false,” the question was marked wrong.

That according to a screenshot of the “post lecture quiz” obtained by Young America’s Foundation, which reported the survey was posed to students enrolled in a political science course.

The foundation added the class boasts more than 800 students online and is billed in its syllabus as “the largest class that Vanderbilt has ever taught.”

“To attempt to boil down the country’s greatest founding document as simply being white supremacist is a new low – marking any student wrong who dares to disagree with this ridiculous statement is heinous,” YAF’s Kara Zupkus noted.

Asked for comment by The College Fix, a Vanderbilt spokesman emailed a statement on behalf of the university:

Consistent with our commitment to the principles of free speech and academic freedom, Vanderbilt has long fostered an environment in which diverse ideas and opinions can be expressed in our efforts to both model, and teach, the principles of civil discourse. The question was posed to stimulate discussion.

Keep in mind that anti-American leftists use words without regard for their normal meaning.

If you look at what leftists call “white supremacist,” you find things like working hard, obeying the law, thinking logically, and using the scientific method — which have nothing to do with race but everything to do with sustaining civilization.

Attacks on “white supremacy” have nothing to do with race and everything to do with subverting and destroying America.

    That’s why the class. We simple folk think those things are good. But you have to go to an expensive school like Vanderbilt to have them teach you why they’re really bad.

The question was posed to stimulate discussion.

Baloney, if that were true, they would have given everyone a trophy and marked both answers right. Besides, what sort of discussion is possible in an 800 student class, based on a true-false question?

The truth is that there is no way they could have ended slavery. The choice was to create the USA or not. They chose the path that laid the foundation for a strong country that would eventually end slavery.

A majority of States refused to enshrine slavery in the Constitution while other States used their slave population to enhance their apportionment of representatives.
