Prof Wants to Obliterate “White” Ideologies of “Merit”, “Hard Work” and Individuality


Penn State-Brandywine Professor Angela Putman has come to the unpleasant realization that the “white” ideologies of “meritocracy” and “hard work” are alarmingly prevalent in her students. She would like to see those concepts erased as well along with the idea of the power of the individual.

In an academic article published Thursday, she criticized the “white” belief that “if I work hard, I can be successful” and that “everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve success.”

Clearly one of the collective, she wrote that students “are socialized to believe that we got to where we are… because of our own individual efforts,” especially in classroom settings.

“Thus, whiteness ideologies may be reproduced through a general acceptance and unchallenging of norms, as well as through everyday discourse from a wide variety of racial positionalities,” she adds

She wants these whiteness myths to be destroyed by professors because they are harmful. The professor called for re-education.

Stalin, Mao and Hitler had those kinds of re-education camps too!

She recommends professors teach students “how racism and whiteness function in various contexts, the powerful influence of systems and institutions, and the pervasiveness of whiteness ideologies within the United States,” she adds, recommending the use of “role-play activities” and “readings, discussions, films, and activities.”

We wouldn’t want anyone to think they can make it without the collective especially not minorities! The collective is hard at work making everyone into a victim who will live off the big government.

In her biography, she says she hopes to teach gender studies and white privilege in the future. Two worthless courses if ever there were any.

Groupthink is dangerous to thinking people. I agree we see ample evidence of Communism deciding that” all are equal, some more equal than others” as George Orwell put it

Is Professor Putnam inferring that blacks don’t like hard work? Sure sounds racist to me!

The basic tenets of communism. Man, the communists are out in force and plain to see as they have never been. No individual, just the state. Erase hard work … okay. Let’s see. How did communist China do under that idea? the USSR? How is North Korea doing with that? How is Cuba, once a prosperous nation, doing with that?

Funny thing is, I would think this very ‘professor’ ‘worked hard’ to achieve what she has done. So she is teaching kids NOT to work hard … I shake my head that this makes any sense, has any appeal, to anyone with a brain.

I forget that IQ levels vary widely from culture to culture, and race to race.
