A typical slide from a critical race theory class.
They’re coming for you next: Forced to attend a bigoted critical race education class at Boise State University where a white student was apparently treated like scum, it appears other students there taped the session and forwarded it to the Idaho state legislature.
The results were somewhat gratifying.
[A]dministrators have abruptly suspended all of the school’s general education classes called “University Foundations 200: Foundations of Ethics and Diversity.”
“We have been made aware of a series of concerns, culminating in allegations that a student or students have been humiliated and degraded in class on our campus for their beliefs and values,” states a March 16 memo from President Marlene Tromp to the campus community. “This is never acceptable; it is not what Boise State stands for; and we will not tolerate this behavior,” Tromp stated. “…Given the weight of cumulative concerns, we have determined that, effective immediately, we must suspend UF 200.” She goes on to note that academic leadership will determine next steps “to ensure that everyone is still able to complete the course.”
Tromp’s decision came around the same time as Idaho lawmakers passed a state education budget that takes away about $409,000 from Boise State University because of its social justice curriculum, Idaho Ed News reports. [emphasis mine]
The highlighted words provide us the real reason Boise administrators suspended these race lectures. They feared losing more budget money. Note however that they haven’t canceled the program, only suspended it. As is always the case with these Marxist academics, they are only taking the minimum action they think necessary to forestall a negative consequence, and plan to immediately resume their bigoted agenda of demonizing whites while glorifying minorities as soon as the controversy dies down.
At the moment the video in question has not been released. It needs to be, as soon as possible, so as to bring the light of truth to this story.
Meanwhile, a report about that racist agenda at Boise from December 2020 outlined in detail the bigoted plans by Boise’s administrators:
“Our report on social justice ideology shows that Boise State is building a social justice university. This ideology asserts that all whites and especially males as oppressors, and that racial minorities are permanent victims,” Miller wrote. “Social Justice institutions like Boise State then construct an environment that seeks to shame and vent hatred on the oppressors and elevate and insulate the oppressed from any kind of criticism.”
This is a public university, and is expressly forbidden by law to treat people differently based on their race, color, or creed. Therefore the action of the legislature to cut Boise State’s budget slightly is quite insufficient. These fake teachers and administrators at Boise need to be fired. A house-cleaning is necessary.
As for the parents and students in Idaho, both in and out of Boise State, they need to reconsider whether they wish to attend such a place. At a minimum they should be hounding their state legislators to make sure this racist program is stopped now, immediately.
