US academians will not be happy until nothing remains of the civilization that created the academy. Literally:
An academic says classics should be cut from university syllabi as it’s so “entangled with white supremacy as to be inseparable from it.” But depriving future generations of the wisdom of the past leads to ignorance & division.
Dan-el Padilla Peralta, a black academic, claims that Western civilisation is based on conceptions of ‘whiteness’ that come from interpretations of the ancient authors. Recently, some classicists have tied their own discipline to white nationalism, wanting to exculpate their discipline from supposed racism.
So sayeth the black classics professor at Princeton! At this point, outside of two known exceptions, there not only is no point in attending a liberal arts college, but there also won’t be any colleges to attend soon.
