College students are given a list of awakened words
10 October 2021 College students are given a list of awakened words
Each year, Brandeis University allows its awake students to build a new list of vocabulary which is either preferred or not recommended among the rest of the student body. While the university claims to be “deeply attached to freedom of expression and freedom of expression”, its Prevention, Advocacy and Resource Center nevertheless participates in this pogrom pronoun.
Among the dos and don’ts of the current “List of suggested languages”:
- “Long time no see” and “no can do” are considered bad English which can be offensive to Asians and indigenous peoples.
- Say “everything that is happening at the moment” without naming the problems of police brutality or racism “avoid[s] responsibility.”
- “Picnic” – surprise – is a word associated with lynchings and should be replaced by “eating in the open air”.
The most interesting of the new Awakened words is the warning against the use of the term “African American”. The Brandeis list reports:
For blacks born in the United States, the hyphenation of their identity can be interpreted as otherness. Some people prefer to use African American, especially in relation to their ancestral roots, while others may identify with other ethnicities.
Unless, of course, “the person (s) identify themselves as such”. Apparently, these people should not be told that they are offending others by what they call themselves.
It seems not that long ago people like Jesse Jackson were demanding that people use the term African American rather than black. Now it’s the other way around. Yet it was still the Conservatives who opposed the hyphenation they saw as causing division and mistrust among Americans of all races.
In the eyes of the Conservatives, people are quite simply Americans. It is the left which is still fixed on the color.
Project 21 member Derryck Green believes the list of suggested languages is an indicator that Brandeis students aren’t getting a good deal for all the dollars they pay in tuition. In a statement for the syndicated talk radio host’s website Todd starnes, Derryck said:
Brandeis University charges nearly $ 80,000 per year for police language it deems “offensive”.
Politically correct language that seeks to magically alleviate “discrimination” and illustrate a sense of “fairness” is self-righteousness enough. This is another example of why four to five years in college isn’t worth the time or money.
