Prof offers class help to ‘STUDENTS OF COLOR ONLY’
The Daily Caller ^ | September 16, 2013 | Robby Soave

Posted on 09/16/2013 5:54:58 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A religious studies professor at Texas Christian University sent an email offering special tutoring to “STUDENTS OF COLOR ONLY.”

An anonymous student in Santiago Piñón’s “Understanding Religion: Society and Culture” class received the following email from the professor and forwarded it to Inside Higher Ed:

“At the beginning of the semester I usually like to invite all my students of color to get together and discuss the challenges they may face during the semester. However, the time slipped by and I didn’t get a chance. So, I would like to ask if you are interested in a get together on Monday afternoon? We can also discuss the exam that is coming up, if you want. I don’t mind if this would turn out to be a study session for my STUDENTS OF COLOR ONLY.”

The student believes that Piñón sent his offer of assistance to students with Hispanic-sounding last names. The student said she has a Hispanic last-name, but is only one-quarter Hispanic.

“I straight up just got segregated by my own teacher. I’m 75 [percent] white,” she wrote on Facebook, according to Inside Higher Ed.

One of the students who received the email notified university administrators. Piñón later announced that the study session was cancelled, and it did not take place on Monday....

so called “whites” have several colors of hair, have pink lips, blue, green or brown eyes, and their skin can be anything from very white to sallow to brown....

“And people wonder why whites expatriate to overseas. “

I don’t get what you mean.

Most expats go to countries that are majority people of color like thailand, phillipines, costa rica, belize, etc.

And the USA is still mostly run by whites. Granted a lot of them are liberal wacho whites or union whites or govt. whites, but still white.

When I spend time in the sun I turn brown
When I spend too much time in the sun I turn red
When I get embarrassed I blush pink
When I get sick I turn a little green
Once I was jaundiced and I turned yellow
When I get really cold I turn a little blueish
So tell me, Am I colored?

I wish the student followed up with the email, had a meeting, then posted it on FaceBook. Now, the prof might get away with 'misunderstanding'. Note that this is not a public university in Vermont or Massachusetts. This is Christian university in Texas.

I would have gone anyway, demanding the prof give a clear and legal definition of ‘student of color.’

No definition = it is whatever anybody says it is.

At TCU, they'd just think that you're getting ready for the football game. The TCU Horned Frogs wear purple and their fans are pretty dedicated.

Of “color”? Just what do you mean “color”?

Recall the old warning that he who controls the meaning of words controls the outcome of a debate. This was never more true than in the current discourse about being of “color” in America.

Dr. Martin Luther King famously said that he wants people judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. So, what is “color” in the context of this professor’s offer to help? I think it is to reject Judeo-Christian Caucasians far more than to help everyone else. And I think this is based on the presumption that people “of color” are liberal and Judeo-Christian Caucasians are not. So at its heart, this racist policy is deeply connected with liberal ideology.

TCU doesn’t even pretend to be Christian. I went with my daughter on a visit there to audition for the dance team. Everyone from the admissions counsellor to students conducting the tour was very careful to say that even though it says Christian in the name, it is not a part of campus life, and you do not have to participate in any Christian activity to be a student. I actually asked admissions why they left the Christian part in their name when they spent so much time trying to run away from it. Needless to say, my daughter and my tuition money go elsewhere.
