Toronto Metropolitan U. Opens Economics Prof Position to People Who ‘Self-Identify as Black’

“Successful candidates will self-identify as Black of African Descent (e.g, Africans and African heritage people from the Caribbean, Americas, Europe)…”

When did racial discrimination become legal in Canada? How else can this be interpreted?

FOX News reports:

Canadian university says economics professor position only open to applicants who ‘self-identify as Black’

A Canadian university is only accepting applicants who “self-identify as Black” for a tenure track teaching position in economics.

Toronto Metropolitan University posted the job listing for a tenure track position in applied microeconomics or economics on Nov. 21 and states on its website that the school is “committed to addressing the underrepresentation of Black faculty.”

“Successful candidates will self-identify as Black of African Descent (e.g, Africans and African heritage people from the Caribbean, Americas, Europe) and will demonstrate strong potential for excellence in, and willingness and ability to contribute to: teaching, scholarly research or creative activity and service, while maintaining an inclusive, equitable, and collegial work environment across all activities,” the job posting states.

The job description also states that “All applicants to this opportunity must self-identify as Black.”

Applicants also must have a doctorate degree in economics or a field that is closely related.

According to the job description, applications for the position must be sent by Dec. 21.

At least one university in America has attempted to implement similar hiring practices.

Weren’t we all black at one time? White only happened when people moved to places where there wasn’t much sun, or who figured out how to get out of the sun.

When did racial discrimination become legal in Canada?

…since always? It’s enshrined in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms that you can discriminate all you like as long as it’s with the goal of redressing historic inequality or some bollocks. The federal government regularly advertises positions that are only open to women, or non-whites.

Also “Toronto Metropolitan University” is not a real university. It’s the former Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, a trade college. There’s a reason it carried the epithet “Rye High”. It became a “degree-granting institution” some years back but only as part of the ridiculous credentialism inflation in Canadian education. It’s mostly famous for turning out journalists.

Louis Leakey showed that we are all descended from black Africans. So maybe they can make the case they aren’t being a bunch of racist idiots.

I was wondering what happened to Rachel Dolezal.
