All Woke Up: ‘White people can’t experience racism’

If you’re scoring along at home on your Woke conceptual guide, white people can’t experience racism.

At least that’s what  Sabrina Harris, graduate teaching assistant at Virginia Tech, told student Alyssa Jones, — after she docked points from Jones’ research paper.

According to Campus Reform, Jones, who is white, wrote about the racism of the New Black Panther Party for her Nations and Nationalities class.

While the Southern Poverty Law Center says the hate group has “encouraged violence against Whites, Jews and law enforcement officers,” Harris wasn’t moved. The T.A. had some concerns about how Jones viewed racism.

Racism, Harris wrote in a response to the student, is a “systemic issue rooted power structure” which has historically oppressed non-white peoples.

In short, “white people cannot experience racism,” the instructor wrote.

Sure, the New Black Panther Party discriminates. Sure it hates white people and Jewish people, Harris added. But it doesn’t “engage with racism as a system of oppression and subjugation, so conceptual clarity is key.”

Thankfully, what was abundantly clear was that Jones’ professor, Edward Weisband, thought his teaching assistant was wrong. He sided with Jones, dismissing Harris’ idiotic concept.

“I agree with you, as I understand your position, persons identified as ‘white’ certainly can be subjected to racism,” the professor told Jones, agreeing to reevaluate her grade.

A rare moment of clarity and reason introduced in the land of the painfully Woke.
