The radicalized students of Evergreen State College, who were the center of nationwide controversy earlier this year for bullying a very progressive professor who criticized an anti-white school program, are once again showing their racist colors. The student newspaper now has a section in its opinion pages devoted to non-whites -- “For people of color by people of color,” according to The College Fix.
The anonymous column “POC Talk” actually debuted in the bi-weekly Cooper Point Journal last year and then was reintroduced in September. Published in the Journal’s Letters & Opinion section, POC Talk says it provides “no-holds-barred commentary on local happenings.”
The column’s editors wrote an introduction in which they described the column as “a place where we can be us without it being overshadowed by the dark cloud that is living under white supremacy and having to see things from a white perspective. This is why when we do cover these issues it will be in the context and from the perspective of POC and POC only."
Because all "people of color" have the same perspective? That sounds like a racist assumption.
“Dear White people, please take a step back, this isn’t brown-people-answer-white-people’s-questions-hour, we’re asking specifically for submissions from POC,” the column’s illiterate editors added.
Imagine any editorial column anywhere in the country beginning, “Dear Black people, please take a step back." The outrage would be apocalyptic. But blatant, anti-white racism is considered "woke," thanks to the insidious corrosion of identity politics which has infected and destroyed college campuses across the country.
“As being told no seems to be a difficult concept for some of y’all I await your emails about the Irish, how the term white fragility is mean (great example of white fragility) and how we need to view people through a color-blind lens (just lol)," the editors continued. "You will 100% not get a response!!!” Written like a true remedial English freshman.
The College Fix notes that since revving back up this fall, the column has addressed topics such as student activism, self care, the local comedy scene, and the controversy in May when students accused white professor Bret Weinstein, himself a proud Progressive, of racism because he criticized a planned “Day of Absence” in which white people were asked to stay off campus. Weinstein sued the college and eventually reached a $500,000 settlement.
A POC Talk column defended the students' position by doubling down on the anti-white racism and complaining that Weinstein is "the textbook definition of white fragility and privilege." Minorities “face harassment on an almost daily basis, it’s horrible and it’s traumatizing but ain’t [sic] nobody [sic] going to pay us $500,000 to deal with it,” the racist illiterates behind the column whined.
Congratulations, Evergreen State administrators, on allowing the inmates to run the asylum.
