Paul Craig Roberts explains why his “advice to white men and women is to avoid universities.” At LewRockwell.com, he writes (abridged):
Academics, if they are white, live in fear of their jobs.
Professors lost their authority when administrations ceased backing them and instead allowed student complaints to result in investigations.
Not only do professors have to try to anticipate the next offensive word or expression—you can’t say things like “girls night out” for example—but also they live in fear of something that they might have written years ago.
At least some white academics are beginning to understand their peril, but not all. Dr. Leslie Neal-Boylan, the Dean of the Nursing School at the University of Massachusetts, was fired for writing in an email that “everyone’s life matters.”
Universities are unsafe places for white males.
Faculty and staff live in fear of baseless accusations that can destroy their careers and their financial lives. White male students are routinely graded down by feminist and black professors and cannot complain as all complaints are regarded as proof that the white male is a misogynist and a racist.
Identity politics is the ideology that prevails in universities, the media, the Democrat Party, and increasingly in the corporate work place.
My advice to white men and women is to avoid universities, especially graduate schools as you will not get an academic job.
It is impossible today for any white student to attend any university in the Western World without constantly hearing how evil “whiteness” is.
The intent is to destroy the self-confidence of whites so that what is so widely proclaimed —“abolish whiteness”—can be achieved.
