Is there a Reasonable Title
What a load of crap! Pardon me, please, for this opening. I don’t know why this is making its purview again on the Internet, but please, bear with me. I am certainly the kind of person who does not believe in censorship of any kind whatsoever. However, that statement does not give a reason for poor taste, ill-mannered or putting into print rubbish that is dispersed by this “Professor” Noel Ignatiev of Massachusetts College.
From the very start of this person’s last public speech at this university where he happed to be employed, Mr. Ignatiev retired the following morning, which indeed tells us very much about his mental health capabilities. This man, without question, is the poster-boy for the “Don’t sell a gun too” crowd.
If you don’t mind I would like to espouse some of my insights based solely on what Noel
Ignatiev said to hopefully assist one in looking and hearing critically at what a person says. So, therefore, one, in his first paragraph (below) why would anyone listen to a racist white guy who clearly has mental problems? Two, why would anyone listen or give credence to a person who speaks as though he is an oncologist, physician, sociologist and an anthropologist?
Three, look at his examples first: “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! A white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? Okay, before I go absolutely crazy on this person, what happens if a white male has sex with a person of color? Oh, must have missed that one. And it would not be a clever idea to try and convince me on the notion of slavery, either. I guess it was a white person that started the Inquisition when most modern texts stipulate it was initiated by Spain, mind you there are those who ponder the Portuguese then some of course, who say it was Italy.
Have you ever wondered where these expressions such as white male/female privilege come from? It is definitely this ignorant professor’s students or colleagues.
“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!” Professor Noel Ignatiev, a tenured professor at Massachusetts College loudly proclaimed to his class last Monday, his final teaching day before retirement.
The good Professor’s sound and reasonable words resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind. They are indisputable, and no one can debate them. They should not be controversial in the slightest, yet remarkably a few far-right extremists object to Prof. Ignatiev’s advice. The Professor, however, reported receiving “a standing ovation” from his “largely white and middle-class students.” Prof. Ignatiev’s critics say that openly calling for students, even if they are white males, to kill themselves was inappropriate and perhaps excessive. In this article, we will look at the other side of the issue.
Fortunately, I was able to arrange a telephone interview with the professor. I felt he deserved a chance to tell his side of the story. Aside from that our radical and racist far-right media refuse to report.
Ivan Fernando: I want to thank you for agreeing to this interview. It’s a pleasure to be able to talk to an esteemed academic of your caliber and impressive credentials.
Ivan Fernando originally wrote this report and it has been published almost everywhere. Primarily for The Diversity Chronical that appears here at WordPress. Otherwise, there is another list at the original site here if you so choose to follow up. Speaking of which, here is another version of my new book, An Open Autopsy on America; please, all of your comments are welcomed.
