Is it wrong or juvenile of me to take secret delight in stuff like this?
This year’s University of California Students of Color Conference degenerated into infighting over the conference theme of fighting “anti-blackness.”
Why, members of other groups demanded to know, should we focus on only one group’s oppression?

Meanwhile, each group demands that it be taught a version of history that it wants to hear. Separate departments must be created to cater to their narcissistic self-preoccupation.
Parents pay in the six figures for their kids to (1) stare at themselves and (2) with zero sense of irony call other people on earth haters of diversity.
The whole thing is a little strange, and most unfortunate.

My Liberty Classroom master membership fills in all those embarrassing gaps in your knowledge, while you’re driving your car.
Professors devoted to liberty, and who don’t hate the very sight of you, are also a bonus.
You’ll think I’m joking when you see everything I’m giving you. But that clock is merciless:
