Hello, and welcome to ATP’s, Really Dumb Things, They Said. I’m Barry Nussbaum.
Chanelle Wilson is an assistant professor of education and director of Africana Studies at Bryn Mawr College.
Here’s her quote: “America didn’t work for black people, and it damn sure didn’t work for indigenous people.” She goes on in her podcast, “It did not work for the people of Mexican ancestry. It didn’t work for Asians. It didn’t work for Jewish people. It didn’t work for Japanese people. It didn’t work for Chinese people. So, who is this country for? This country is only for white people.”
This incredibly dumb professor added that people of color are told by white Americans, “Don’t ask for too much. Be happy that you’re allowed even to be here, but don’t make a ruckus. Don’t say anything, don’t have a brain, and don’t learn. Don’t do any of these things. That’s the truth.”
Now here’s the truth. This completely racist and completely untrue professor is nuts. I know many people who started with nothing and now have made it within this wonderful country. The people I’m referring to on this list are black, Hispanic, Asian, Japanese, and Jewish, including me.
Parents don’t pay for your kids to sit in this dumb class. Please send them somewhere else.
