A student at Michigan State University claims that White Privilege is literally making him sick. Here he serves up his word salad of current college rhetoric, with a large helping of entitlement on the side.
Rashad Timmons says that microaggressions are causing him several medical afflictions. His letter was titled, “Intentional or not, microaggressions severely impact underrepresented members of society.”
According to Timmons, people who “are not privileged” are suffering greatly from the intentional and unintentional triggers that others are causing. “On a campus,” he writes, ” — and nation at large — in which whiteness, patriarchy, heteronormativity, cissexism, ableism and classism prevail, students that are not privileged by these constructs often have difficulty navigating hegemonic, oppressive environments.”
Translation: “Everyone must cater to me and ensure that I never encounter any difficulty at ever, and if I do, it’s white people’s fault and they should be collectively punished.”
It’s the same mentality of entitlement that leads leftists to proclaim that declining to bake a wedding cake is a crime against humanity.
Up the road in Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan was going to cancel a showing of American Sniper because it might have made some of their special snowflakes “feel unsafe.” But after being roundly ridiculed, they agreed to show the movie after all… in a special forum space, where grief counselors and big soft teddy bears will be available for anyone made uncomfortable by the magical moving pictures of light and sound.
