“Scholars have shown that Black, brown, and indigenous people are disproportionate police targets”
Democrats are now running away from this issue as fast as they can, but the campus left keeps reminding us that it is real. They want this.

Davidson College offers ‘#AbolishThePolice’ course
Davidson College is offering “#Abolishthepolice: Race and Policing in the U.S.” this fall.
Listed under Africana Studies, “#Abolishthepolice” intends to “enlist Black political and feminist theories and social and political philosophies to critically examine and think through issues of race, criminalization, incarceration, police militarization, predictive policing, surveillance, and domestic security.”
The description also states, “Scholars have shown that Black, brown, and indigenous people are disproportionate police targets. And because police violence and gendered violence are intrinsically connected, Black trans and gender nonconforming people, and Black people with disabilities and mental health issues, routinely experience surveillance, arrest, incarceration, and sexual assault at the hands of law enforcement at significantly higher rates than any other racial demographic.”
The course satisfies the Social-Scientific Thought prerequisite as part of the “Ways of Knowing” requirement, which is designed to help students “examine complex problems through diverse methods of inquiry, understand how different kinds of knowledge are generated, and identify appropriate standards for evaluating knowledge in different realms.”
“#Abolishthepolice” comes nearly a year after Davidson College spent $1 million promoting racial justice in “white dominant” churches in 2020.
Jay Pfeifer, the director of media relations for Davidson College, told Campus Reform that the course is in line with the values of Davidson College.
