MLK Day meets George Orwell: the bizarro world concept of “multiracial whiteness”

Today is Martin Luther King Day. Below is a restoration using AI techniques of a film of his historic “I Have A Dream” speech.

Of course, today having a dream that people should be judged according to the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin, would qualify you as a far-right extremist, as the Babylon Bee quips.

And on this MLK Day 2021, dear reader, we have officially reached peak academentia. A ‘professor’ at New York University, using critical Marxist theory [what else?] ascribes black and Latino support for Donald Trump to, guess what: “multiracial whiteness“.

Multiracial. Whiteness.

I. Can’t. Even.

One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool. - George Orwell
One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.” (George Orwell, “Notes on Nationalism”, 1945)

I have a feeling I know very well what Martin Luther King, were he alive today, would have to say to this ‘professor’ and the likes of her.

UPDATE: go read “Cockburn” at The Spectator satirizing “The terrifying scourge of ‘multiracial whiteness’” It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad that this is the level of pseudo-intellectual sophistry academia has sunk to #academentia
