A Georgetown University professor said Sunday that “ALL white people are racist,” “ALL men are sexist,” and “ALL cis people are transphobic.”
Preston Mitchum, a law professor at Georgetown University, made the remarks on his Twitter account, according to Campus Reform. “Yes, ALL white people are racist,” said Mitchum. “Yes, ALL men are sexist. Yes, ALL cis people are transphobic. We have to unpack that. That’s the work!”

St. John’s College in Santa Fe recently launched a new “study group” for “those who most often exhibit racist and sexist behavior—white males.” According to correspondences obtained by Campus Reform, the study group was advertised in a campus-wide email forwarded to all students and faculty, explicitly encouraging white people to attend four sessions on privilege so they can “begin to be self-critical.”...
Participants will apparently deal with two main problems, those being “the depravity of whiteness and the brutality of masculinity.”

Harper‘s magazine editor Lewis Lapham is being appropriately mocked for a major pre-GOP-convention boner. In the September issue of his magazine, which has been on newsstands for over a week, Lapham writes about the “Republican propaganda mill” and the GOP convention: “The speeches in Madison Square Garden affirmed the great truths now routinely preached from the pulpits of Fox News and the Wall Street Journal – government the problem, not the solution; the social contract a dead letter; the free market the answer to every maiden’s prayer — and while listening to the hollow rattle of the rhetorical brass and tin, I remembered the question that [Richard] Hofstadter didn’t stay to answer. How did a set of ideas both archaic and bizarre make its way into the center ring of the American political circus?” That’s right, Lapham wrote about the GOP convention speeches before anyone even stepped to the podium. Lapham has apologized for what he’s calling a “rhetorical invention,” use of “poetic license,” and a “mistake.”
