A recently installed mural on the University Of Southern Californias campus is causing controversy after it called to dismantle whiteness.
The banner, which reads DISMANTLE WHITENESS AND MISOGYNY ON THIS CAMPUS, was installed under a highly frequented archway near the schools Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. It is intended to start a conversation about tolerance and raise awareness for racism, sexism and xenophobia, its masterminds say.
The masterminds behind the poster are USCs Institute for Diversity and Empowerment (IDEA), students in a course called Women: Designing Media for Social Change, and social change advocacy group When Women Disrupt. These people sound like a great time.
Its pretty surprising that it took not one, not two, but three groups partnered together to create a seven word poster with a ludicrous message.
Its also pretty ironic that this message is supposed to encourage diversity when its straight up calling for the dismantling of an entire race.
When pressed on the issue, a communications professor told the College Fix The installation is intended to spark dialogue. To that end, the signage is meant to offer grounding of terms and ideas. There is no expectation that everyone agree with the statement offered by the artists, but hopefully viewers can acknowledge the experience of peers on campus around these issues.
Imagine for just a moment if this sign advocated for the downfall of any other race. I highly doubt this professor or anybody else on campus would defend the sentiment. Flagrantly conflating a race with misogyny is not an educational exercise. Its a misinformation campaign.
Its one thing to advocate for equality. But you venture into some very muddy, very dangerous territory when entire movements and institutions vilify an entire race in the name of fairness. Racism and misogyny can happen everywhere, no matter the content of melanin in your skin.
How about ‘dismantle blackness’ ?
And every week my son gets more junk mail asking him to attend USC! Dismantle this...........
this is ridiculous when the entire school is named The Trojans! just how much worse could a college be in the Sexist department, anyway!?????????
ps: do kids still put trojans on the nice big campus statue of Tommy Trojan?
Should change the name to the Busted Trojans.
USC used to have to pay the custodians to remove the trojans from Tommy Trojan ..early every morning before too many people were around
what do you do for a living, daddy?
i peel busted trojans off Tommy
This is Naziism: the target has simply shifted from Jews to whites (and the left continues to hate Jews, too).
The only way this would foster a conversation about ending racism is if it was sarcasm, or satire. I don’t sense that it was intended as satire and I’m pretty sure allowing it to hang is a Title IX violation.
Just advertise that there will be no campus security or other security present for one week at USC. That should take care of most of that nasty whiteness.
Minority racism and female chauvinism...
Its a brave new world.
Forget it Jake. It’s USC.
Absolutely! The gods of equality and inclusiveness demands posters advocating for the dismantlement of every skin tone!
I think that’s been the goal of The Knock-Out Game, White Girl Bleed a Lot.....
[ DISMANTLE WHITENESS ]
Dude, no way we’re going to let them dismantle you!
SAY WHUT? "ARTISTS"???
Oh wow, man! Look at this cool piece of "Art". The "Artists" somehow managed to find a Helvetic Font!! Or maybe it's even Tahoma font? Or Verdana? That's just mind-boggling how they settled on such an artistic font as that.
And get a load of the subtle play of various colors ... using a black font on a plain white background! Is this truly the very essence of Art, or what? Have you seen art this meaningful since Picasso?
Unless and until some of these Commies are dealt with, and dealt with in a way to leave a message, this assault on Whites will continue. Make some Examples, watch the change.
It should be covered in black spray paint - too bad surveillance cameras are everywhere - although they too, can be covered in spray paint!
Throw eggs at it. Eggs are white...and yellow.
