Cop-hating is now a course on one college campus.
Davidson College this fall will offer “#Abolishthepolice: Race and Policing in the U.S.”
Listed under Africana Studies, “#Abolishthepolice” intends to “enlist Black political and feminist theories and social and political philosophies to critically examine and think through issues of race, criminalization, incarceration, police militarization, predictive policing, surveillance, and domestic security,” Campus Reform reported.
According to course literature, “Scholars have shown that Black, brown, and indigenous people are disproportionate police targets. And because police violence and gendered violence are intrinsically connected, Black trans and gender nonconforming people, and Black people with disabilities and mental health issues, routinely experience surveillance, arrest, incarceration, and sexual assault at the hands of law enforcement at significantly higher rates than any other racial demographic.”
An official from the North Carolina private liberal arts school told the publication that the course is in line with the college’s values.
The course satisfies the Social-Scientific Thought prerequisite as part of the “Ways of Knowing” requirement, which is designed to help students “examine complex problems through diverse methods of inquiry, understand how different kinds of knowledge are generated, and identify appropriate standards for evaluating knowledge in different realms.”
Here’s another complex problem for the kids at Davidson and the children paid a lot of money to teach them: Who will you call when a criminal of any color is robbing your home or threatening your life? Who responds to that call after you’ve defunded the police?
