A Canadian English Professor claims canoes are racist
The PC police are running amok on colleges all across the nation: A University of California fraternity was forced to cancel a fundraiser because coconut bras and grass skirts are racist, the University of St. Thomas was forced to cancel a “hump day” event because they were going to have a petting zoo which included a camel and that was deemed insensitive towards Muslims, and Dartmouth University had to cancel a “phiesta” event because they were selling tacos and that was racist.
Another college had to cancel a “jail and bail” fundraiser and one college even had to cancel a space-themed event because of its supposed allusion to illegal aliens, which obviously was not the type of aliens the campus was talking about. All of these were fundraisers for children and they were shut down.
But this ridiculosity is not limited to just college campuses in this country: A Canadian English Professor has determined that canoes are racist and represent genocide. Here is more:
“Certainly the majority of wilderness canoers are people who have a very privileged place in society,” she said. “They’re frequently highly educated people. They’re almost completely white.”
“We have a whole set of narratives that make the canoe into something that seems ordinary,” she continued. “But I think if you look a little further that narrative obscures or erases another narrative – and that narrative is about, to be blunt, it’s about theft and genocide.”
Canoers are people who enjoy the outdoors and nature and like to spend their spare time enjoying what they love. There is no micro aggression in their hobby and yet they are being called “privileged” people who don’t understand the “narrative” is “about theft and genocide.” Is it just me or has the whole world gone insane?!
I guess my naivety on this issue makes me a backwards, knuckle-dragging, flat-earther know-nothing who does not understand the complexities of the modern world…
