 Rutgers professor: Even the concept of time is racist
Dave Huber - Assistant Editor •April 2, 2019

One of the privileges of being a tenured professor in the field of “studies” is that you can make up crap out of thin air and majors in the field, fellow faculty, and progressive media all go “Ooooooh!” in amazement.

Rutgers University’s Brittney Cooper is a master at this. The associated professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies who once opined that Jesus was “potentially queer” or was “married to a prostitute,” called black city officials she did not like “white supremacists in Blackface,” and had nothing but words of “the four-letter variety” after the US Supreme Court allowed for religious exemptions to the ObamaCare contraceptive mandate, now says that the very concept of time itself is … racially biased.

I think the prof is a bit confused.

Quote
Cooper goes on to note that white people are taught that time is linear (it’s not? To coin a cliché, isn’t the science settled?), but for African-Americans time “doesn’t exactly work that way” because they live with “the residue of past historical trauma,” not to mention a present “filled with racial animus” and a “precarious future.”

Modern cultures see time as linear; pre-modern cultures sometimes see time as circular, a big wheel that keeps turning and repeats at regular occasions.  It looks like she's taken these concepts and since less developed cultures may see time as other than linear, linear time concepts are obviously racist.  Or something...
Cui bono?

Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

OK, "professor" Cooper, here's what I think about "time".

It's "time" for you and your nonsensical pronouncements to be lookin' for another job.

"the associated professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies"
 
If that is what passes today for an "academic discipline", then the transmission of knowledge is manifestly no longer the object of the academy. The purpose of such a course of study is not to enlighten, empower and inform, but to provoke, enrage, and indoctrinate. And toward what end? Toward this: a dominant condition of social alienation and existential despair. Such a condition never serves the intentions of free and happy men and women, but rather those of would-be tyrants and also not coincidentally, the desires of their willing enablers.
Socialism is like the monster in "It" - every thirty years or so it returns to devour the young.

In an interview with NPR last week, Cooper said that the way we “position ourselves in relationship to time comes out of histories of European and Western thought”; in other words, “white people own time.”

Time is not racist!!  It is a clear cut case of "cultural appropriation." :tongue2:
