Despite what liberals think, racism is a two way street. One does not have to be white to be racist, and a professor at Minneapolis Community and Technical College has proven that. Professor Shannon Gibney teaches English, but she often uses her position of being in front of students as a platform to preach about what she deems to be racism, mostly ‘white privilege.’ She’s been reprimanded for doing so in the past, though the college never suspended her, and this time, her actions have spurned a lawsuit, by two white students, against the college.
Recently, during a lecture that obviously had little to do with literature, Gibney went on another diatribe about how whites are racist. Having had enough, a couple of her students called her out on it. In her response, she allegedly said, “We are not talking about all white people, or you white people in general. We are talking about whiteness as a system of oppression.”
The students first went to the dean to file a complaint, and he sent a reprimand to the racist professor, stating, “Shannon, I find it troubling that the manner in which you lead a discussion on the very important topic of structural racism alienated two students who may have been most in need of learning about the subject… Your actions in targeting select students based on their race and gender caused them embarrassment and created a hostile learning environment.”
