KSU has Finally Crossed Over to the Dark Side

19805251_bg2

For the last seventeen or so years, I have watched with some horror (and not a little disgust) as my former institution of “higher learning” began to slowly slip into the hell of political correctness.

I suppose back then I rather naively thought that KSU would somehow manage to stay above the PC lunacy many colleges and universities have been rapidly descending into over the last two decades. After all, this area of the country is not exactly known as a bastion of liberalism.

Whatever hope I once had for my former university has now evaporated:

College Puts White People in Separate Room For ‘Privilege Workshop’

By Jillian Kay Melchior|1:37 pm, April 18, 2017

When Kennesaw State University held an event last week on privilege and interracial relations, it asked “those who identify as white” to go to one room and “those who identify as people of color” to go to another.

“The goal of the workshop, which was led by an outside expert, was to foster learning and create an environment of understanding and support for one another,” said Kennesaw State University spokeswoman Tammy DeMel. “Attendees were asked to work together and then were invited to join the group with which they identify.”

The April 13 event “is being mischaracterized” as segregation, DeMel added.

The event, a workshop called “Being, Becoming and Fostering Allies: Building Relationships Across Privilege,” was taught by two psychology professors and one grad student from the University of Massachusetts, as well as a Kennesaw State University professor.

In it, students learned about becoming an ally for less privileged people, as well as “the essential roles of self-reflection, cultural humility, and re-engagement after failures.”

Kennesaw State University is the latest to grapple with the implications of separating students by race. In the last academic year, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Michigan, and Concordia University all found themselves facing accusations of segregation after they held events divided by race or focused on one particular racial group.

End-

Despite the (weak) protestations to the contrary, does anyone actually believe the true goal of this blatantly racist, bull-squeeze “workshop” is not meant to drive a wedge even deeper between the races?

I have a bridge to sell you if you do.

Had something like this been attempted when I was enrolled there back in the day, most of my fellow students would have pitched a fit.

But that was another time in an America that apparently no-longer exists.

Something Lighter

suntrust parkI have gotten a little tired of serious subjects today, so I thought it might be nice (and far less stressful) to share some pics of the Braves’ new digs with you guys.

I have not ventured down there as yet, but am hoping to very soon, as the new ballpark is about ten minutes down I-75 from my domicile.

Enjoy.

If I Seem Irritable, It’s Because I Is

I have officially quit smoking.

I was down to between 2 – 4 per day (individual cigs – NOT packs) but even that wasn’t quite good enough, so I have gone cold turkey.

LOL – If I haven’t managed to piss you off just yet, be patient, because it’s coming.

Trust me. 😉

Tommy Robinson Rants on UK Mooooooooslim “Immigrants”

I like this guy, as he actually “gets it.”

There might just be hope for the UK yet.

Maybe.

Friday Night Funny

It is Friday the 13th, you have a ticket booking you on flight 666, and it is bound for HEL.

Are you going to board it?

Via wfaa.com:

In a bizarre Friday-the-13th coincidence, a flight bearing the number of the beast went straight to HEL today.

That’s right. Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen (CPH) and flew directly to Helsinki (HEL) on Friday.

Even better? The flight took off at 13:00 local time, according to Flightaware. The one-hour, 34-minute flight landed at HEL at 3:41 p.m. Helsinki time.

And it gets even wackier.

The Twitter account @Flightradar24, which tracks air traffic around the world, even pointed out the aircraft is 13 years old, according to its registration and serial number.

It may be less of a coincidence and more of a brilliant move by someone (who needs a raise) in Finnair’s scheduling department. Either way, it’s a fascinating alignment of oddities.

Next on the agenda: Dig through the list of ticketed passengers to find out if anyone named Jason was on Flight 666 on Friday the 13th.

-End

You will find the whole story here, complete with video.

LOL – Somebody at Finnair has a seriously twisted sense of humor.
