SJW’s at Brown University whine that their activism is causing stress and conflict with their academic studies, and the university should accommodate them because… unfair!
“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student going by the pseudonym “David” told The Brown Daily Herald Thursday. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”
You will not fracking believe what they were so perturbed about. Actually, you fracking will.
David and other students began demonstrating on campus in October to protest two opinion columns published in the Daily Herald that some students deemed racist because they defended the celebration of Columbus Day.
Justice Gaines, an undergraduate student who uses the pronouns xe, xem and xyr, even recounted suffering from what xe describes as “a panic attack” related to xyr emotions over the Daily Herald op-eds, adding that xe “couldn’t go to class for several days” following the episode.
If people are really suffering from their guilt over “white privilege” I suggest that they give away their trust fund to the United Negro college fund, sell their house in the affluent suburbs and move into a majority-minority neighborhood in Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Oakland… Anyone who doesn’t is just a poseur.
