The secret ingredient creating the mess on our college campuses | Eastern North Carolina Now

Posted on May 2, 2024 by Brant Clifton in the Daily Haymaker

Some would like to have you think all of the unrest on our nation’s college classes is simply an extension of the current conflict in Gaza.  If you look closer, you’ll find many of the same roving band of radical professional left-wing agitators who rioted in previous years under the aegis of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and Occupy Wall Street.  You’ll also see compliant and cooperative faculty and administrators aiding and abetting the nonsense.  And you’ll also see efforts – like UNC’s Project READY — already working to brainwash a new generation of useful leftist idiots to keep the fight going.

It’s worth noting that Project READY is a joint venture between UNC, Wake County Schools, and NC Central University.  Here’s an interesting take from conservative filmmaker Robby Starbuck:

Check out Project READY’s Module 11:


Explain why the concepts of “color-blindness” and “neutrality” are harmful to anti-racist work, including anti-racist work in libraries.[…]
Or Module 10:


As you’ve worked through the previous modules you’ve learned that:

1.      White is a socially constructed category of “race” with no biological/scientific foundation;

2.     The racial category white only exists in relation to other racial categories;

3.     The racial category white was created by white power holders to codify the superiority of white people over others; and

4.     The definition of white has changed over time and has been (and continues to be) determined by the people in power. […] 

Or even Module 2


Describe how and why the concept of race was developed.
Explain how the concept of race was applied throughout history in ways that advantaged white people and disadvantaged people of color and Native people.
Outline how historical advantages and disadvantages based on race have accumulated to create and maintain the racial inequities we observe today.
Connect historical events and trends to your own personal and family history. […]
And, of course, Module 3:

[…] Racism is:

a system of advantage based on race;
a system of oppression based on race;
social and institutional power PLUS racial prejudice.
Racism is NOT:

racial prejudice, hatred, or discrimination.
Let’s unpack this definition, because this conception of racism may be different from the ways you have heard the term used in other contexts. Racial equity advocates define racism as a system – a set of things that work together for a common purpose or with a common outcome. Remember from our definition of “system” above that once established, a system does not require planning or initiative of individual people. Because inequity and differential treatment are embedded in the social, economic, and political systems of our country and therefore seen as “normal,” systemic racism would exist even if racial prejudice and racial hatred were completely eliminated.

Racism is both a system of advantage (for whites) and a system of oppression (for BIPOC). The system was created to concentrate social and institutional power among those designated as “white,” and to exclude all others from receiving these benefits. Again, because these systems are self-perpetuating, differential outcomes according to race will continue to be produced by them regardless of the action or inaction of individual people within the system, unless and until the system itself is changed. […] 

And Module 20


How many of these statements have you heard before?

“Children don’t see color – they just see people.”
“I’m not racist, so my children can’t possibly be.”
“If we stopped pointing out race, then everyone would be equal.”
“Race is a social construct. What we should really be talking about is ethnicity.”
“We live in a post-racial society. After all, we had a Black president.”
While these statements are likely uttered with the best of intentions, they ignore the reality of life in the United States. Whether we want to admit it or not, race and racism exist and affect people every day. Not talking about race does not make racism go away. In fact, by pretending racism doesn’t exist, by being silent, by teaching children race and racism are taboo topics, and by not acknowledging the negative impacts of systemic racism on communities of color, we reinforce the very structures that allow racism to thrive and grow.[…]

It’s pretty clear that it’s time for our legislators and their pampered donors appointed to the college boards need to get off their duffs and lead the fight and take our university system back from the lunatics.
