Deep question: Is a Hump Day camel racist?
Hotair ^

Posted on 05/16/2014 10:57:11 AM PDT by chessplayer

Students at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota have cancelled an event to celebrate the end of the year after complaints that bringing a camel on campus could offend those of Middle Eastern cultures.

The “Hump Day” event, put on by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), was supposed to be “a petting zoo type of atmosphere” in which students could hang out and take photos with a live camel. According to Aaron Macke, the group’s advisor, the camel is owned by a local vendor and trained for special events.

But the event was subsequently cancelled after students took to Facebook to proclaim their concerns. The students said they were concerned about the money spent on bringing the camel to campus—around $500—and the implication that it would be racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures.

They were complaining that the camel was culturally incentive to middle easterners...
I figured they’d say he was racist toward AA’s due to the voice.

No history majors in the group? Well, only revisionist history.

Here in Arizona it is pretty well known that camels were imported in the 1850's as an experiment by the US Army.

THE BEATLES
“It’s Only Love”

I get high when I see you go by
My oh my
When you sigh, my, my inside just flies
Butterflies
Why am I so shy when I’m beside you?

It’s only love and that is all
Why should I feel the way I do?
It’s only love, and that is all
But it’s so hard loving you

Is it right that you and I should fight
Every night?
Just the sight of you makes nighttime bright
Very bright
Haven’t I the right to make it up girl?

It’s only love and that is all
Why should I feel the way I do?
It’s only love, and that is all
But it’s so hard loving you
Yes it’s so hard loving you, loving you

More proof that no education is actually taking place on our college campuses.

These budding young Einsteins don't know that "hump" day refers to Wednesday as in "over the hump" of the workweek toward Friday? The analogy refers to a hill or mountain. It has nothing to do with the Middle East. It's just coincidence that Camels have humps.

Geez. I know they are worse than ignorant about history, but they don't even know popular culture???

“Middle Eastern” is NOT a race.
