race row over oxford ball with new orleans theme … pc student idiots

More university idiots.
There must be billions ovem.  And they’re everywhere, they’re everywhere!

There really ought-ta-be a cull of these morons.  Seriously folks.  Wouldn’t western culture be way better off.  All these jerks do is get in the way.
Why isn’t there anyone doing something about them?

Take a look.

Oxford University in ‘race row’ over ‘problematic’ 1920s ball

Critics have wondered why the colleges are commemorating ‘an era of history steeped in racism’

Colleges at the University of Oxford have been drawn into a ‘race row’ after advertising New Orleans and 1920s-themed balls, to be held in May 2016.

Students have claimed that the balls may cause offense to female and ethnic minority students.

They have complained to the organising committees of the events.

Magdalen College’s £185-a-ticket ball, inspired by “The Great Gatsby”, promises to take students “back to 1926”. It has been marketed using the quote: “Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can!”

Arushi Garg, a law student at the college, has spoken out about the “problematic” nature of the event.

OK, So as I understand it.  This foreigner with only basic knowledge of the Jazz Age, sees the time only through one lens. And one that apparently favors her POV . The colonial and a colored one.  And a female.  Yes, it all equals, VICTIM.  To Arushi, going back to the past for a ball ignores when movies first spoke.  She easily ignores the music, well of course she does.  She really isn’t ‘one of us’ and never will be, I don’t think.  There isn’t any thread to connect this dark faced foreign person who has little real knowledge of that era.  Well, except from the view thru the victim and race lens. 
And she’s a “law student”.  We can imagine what sort of mess she will contribute to in the future.
For this dim wit, the past has no glory and nothing to recommend it. 
Well ... for all it’s probable faults and at the end of the decade there was an terrible depression .... for all of that.

I sometimes think it was perhaps the last time America really had a great time.  They had a ball. And baseball and The Babe.
It really was what it was called.
An Era of Wonderful Nonsense.  And yeah I am aware. The country paid for it in 29.  But that is not the issue here. It’s idiot university, diversified, politically correct foreigners and those who follow them.  Read the rest of what what this loon has to say.

She told student paper The Cherwell: “1926 at Magdalen was a time when people of colour and women were entirely absent from college spaces. I felt uncomfortable with the advertising.

“Obviously my demographic (woman of colour from a former colony that remains a developing country) makes me less likely than others to uncritically long for a past that privileged some more than others.

“But it would be nice if they cut down on the nostalgia a bit, because if we were re-living the past, the corridors of institutional spaces like Magdalen/Oxford is definitely not where you would find people of my gender, race and nationality.

“I wrote to the Magdalen organisers and they engaged quite respectfully with me, and are communicating with me to understand why I think this is problematic.”

It never occurs to her that there is no “nostalgia” but a bit of a tribute to the style and dress and music of the age.

“they engaged quite respectfully with me”
No dear.  They were sucking up, more or less.

But they never would have had you been a white Christian of either gender. 

Lincoln college has faced criticism for “cultural appropriation” due to the marketing around its New Orleans-themed ball.

It promises “amazing jazz”, “spectacular Mardi Gras” and “clandestine magic”.

Students, including co-chairmen of the student union’s Campaign for Racial Awareness and Equality, have said that it promotes “nostalgia for an era steeped in racism.”

The Telegraph

“a former colony that remains a developing country”

In other words .... the Turd World.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
