    Rutgers Prof Suggests the Concept of Time is Racist

    Rutgers Prof Suggests the Concept of Time is Racist

    “When white, male European philosophers first thought to conceptualize time and history…”

    Is there anything that can’t be declared inherently racist? Apparently not.

    The College Fix reports:

    Rutgers professor: Even the concept of time is racist

    One of the privileges of being a tenured professor in the field of “studies” is that you can make up crap out of thin air and majors in the field, fellow faculty, and progressive media all go “Ooooooh!” in amazement.

    Rutgers University’s Brittney Cooper is a master at this. The associated professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies who once opined that Jesus was “potentially queer” or was “married to a prostitute,” called black city officials she did not like “white supremacists in Blackface,” and had nothing but words of “the four-letter variety” after the US Supreme Court allowed for religious exemptions to the ObamaCare contraceptive mandate, now says that the very concept of time itself is … racially biased.

    In an interview with NPR last week, Cooper said that the way we “position ourselves in relationship to time comes out of histories of European and Western thought”; in other words, “white people own time.”

    Time has a history, and so do black people. But we treat time as though it is timeless, as though it has always been this way, as though it doesn’t have a political history bound up with the plunder of indigenous lands, the genocide of indigenous people and the stealing of Africans from their homeland. When white, male European philosophers first thought to conceptualize time and history, one famously declared, Africa is no historical part of the world. He was, essentially, saying that Africans were people outside of history who had had no impact on time or the march of progress. …

    Now, we also see this idea that black people are people either alternately outside the bounds of time or stuck in the past in a scenario where, much as I’m doing right now, a black person stands up and insists that racism still matters, and a person – usually white – says to them, why are you stuck in the past?

    Most of her education is in the area of English. How she became an expert in time is beyond me. Certainly not uneducated looking for a cause in time?

    Next up: Oxygen is racist.

    Prof. Grievance Card should stage a protest of it and recruit as many of her disciples as possible.

    This so-called professor is actually being paid by Rutgers? These students should sue the school for getting inferior, nonsensical claptrap from this moron.
