“Racism is Over” in the US!

If you don’t believe it, read the tales on the new blog, Racism is Over.   As they say, who knows how long this will last, so they’re getting the stories down quickly.

A lot  of it is very funny and it’s at least the beginning of a record of how racism permeates the society.   The sort of thing that students might find easier to take than a lecture from one of us.

I’m thinking of writing to say how my university, where white students are in the minority, is actually going to diversify its faculty.   This year!   It’s so exciting.  All those old white guys?  Hey, even the guy who assigned Gone with the Wind as part of black history is sorry now.

  1. So how come no one asked asked about the black history and Gone with the Wind example? That couldn’t really have happened, could it? Wrong. it was assigned in a history course and presented as representing black experience of the civil war. Ah, life in a red state!

  2. gone with the wind! maybe the guy was colourblind. (couldn’t distinguish black experience from scarlet’s experience.) wow.
