He's still just whining about white people and shilling his book but Beyh.D made me laugh because it's sooo dumb.
"And it never ends. My job security as an adjunct educator depends on my shutting up about my own politics that negatively categorize whiteness, or the horrible violence the current administration espouses and encourages." -- So why do you keep tweeting how white people are terrorists? The fact is, your "job" as an adjunct depends on you being a permastudent who keeps paying money.Kevvie said:Education is about questioning power. Education should be about critical inquiry, period. Since Trump's election, any line of inquiry that names "white people" or "whiteness" (i.e. power) has become increasingly off limits. WHY? What is going on?
It's not new, but I've seen it ratcheted up exponentially in my own work and experience, and in others' stories. Why is "white" a protected class now for universities? White people have NEVER been historically discriminated against as a group. They/we don't need protection.
Yet universities are increasingly caving to demands that "white" is in need of priority protection due to mounting threats -- or even in equal need of protection as other actually discriminated against categories.
None of it's true. White students have never been in need of protection at universities. Whiteness is the default, no matter how liberal and/or progressive the school is (unless we're talking HBCU, which even still might hold conservative politics).
Yes, white students that intersect with other marginalized identities might be in need of extra protection in education, but whiteness by itself? NO. NEVER.
Anyway, I'm just frustrated. I'm not new to trolls messing with my life/employment. I've lost multiple jobs because i'm outspoken about my opinions (none of which violate any law but all of which speak to the ways whiteness has created a violent racist conservatism in the U.S.). And it never ends. My job security as an adjunct educator depends on my shutting up about my own politics that negatively categorize whiteness, or the horrible violence the current administration espouses and encourages. And if *I* can't even voice these opinions as a white (albeit queer) man without getting fired multiple times, can you imagine what it's like for educators that are not men, that aren't white, that are various intersections of already marginalized identities????
Yes, there's tenure track jobs, but to get them, you likely have to silence yourself for even longer and by the time you get tenure and can speak freely, you're often so beaten down that you don't. I have to apologize to potential employers for my radical politics and viewpoints, and I'm kept under close surveillance if I want to keep any job I do manage to get for a semester or multiple semesters because conservative student contingents/funders threaten the university.
I NEVER present my own politics as fact in a classroom. But I don't pretend I have no politics or opinions either. That's ridiculous. I create syllabi full of readings and questions that will hopefully spark conversations. And I insist you back an opinion with textual evidence. I've lost multiple jobs bc conservative student complaint about my social media and personal politics/opinion (sometimes outright lies). I'm risking losing another currently. But what is an educator supposed to do? How do you teach critical thinking while silencing instructors?
I'm sad and I'm tired and I'm disillusioned about the state of education today. But I'd also like to explicitly point out I didn't name anyone or any institution. None of this is meant to apply to a specific university because it probably applies to all of them. (& yes, I'm also protecting myself by speaking generally. i'm unapologetic about my views and politics, but i still have bills to pay and some of the small adjunct jobs i've been able to cobble together help make that BARELY possible--adjunct pay is still woefully inadequate.)
I don't know about that, didn't he disown his dad for being a Mormon shitlord who doesn't literally worship at the altar of Queen Bey?Easy to say for someone who sole income comes from the Bank of Dad & Mom.
Well, if you're Kevvy, you do have to censor yourself from literally making death threats against anyone you don't like (despite being a laughable nancy boy who couldn't hurt a fly).Kevin is certainly fucking idiotic and I have said this a billion times before but it is fucking jaw-dropping that a man can be so detached from reality to imagine that the American university structure as a whole even tilts politically conservative, let alone to the point where left-leaning academics have to actively censor themselves.
I’m still amazed Kevvie hasn’t trooned out yet.Someone wrote a review of his forthcoming book.
'I fully appreciate that's likely due to my privilege as a Cis White Man, and as such I found "Ain't I A Diva" an eye-opening read, and Allred is careful to ensure that he doesn't wallow in dry academia, but instead fills his work with references that are relevant to both the subject and the reader. If the book is this good, I can only imagine how engagingly excellent Allred's lectures are - with the book going far deeper than I perhaps imagined, and as such is a valuable and enlightening read for anyone with an interest in popular culture.'

It doesn't even read like a review; it is just an overlong blurb.
The head of your department is a woman, and that doesn't stop everyone from hating you.
No one dragged Jussie Toilet through the mud; the nigger fag dragged himself through the mud, retard.Kevvie said:I am going to believe Jussie Smollett until the CPD can lay out a case so irrefutable, complete with point-by-point proof verified by my own eyes, that there's no other explanation. Because something still isn't right and it all still feels fishy to me.
He's fiercely defending himself to the Empire cast and crew. If you can't prove to me beyond a reasonable doubt that he's a pathological liar, I still side with him. I admit, some pieces are suspect, but police (esp CPD) hate and distrust Black men and Black queer men. If it happens that incontrovertible proof comes out & it's verifiably true that Jussie staged things, I still won't be sorry. I'd rather err on the side of openness and understanding, esp for marginalized folks, than the alternative. I don't know why the opposite is so popular.
If you're gleefully reveling in the idea that Jussie Smollett's attack may have been orchestrated, it says a lot more about you than it does about anyone that has supported or continues to support Jussie. It's GROSS how many people are so excited about discounting his story. If you are this excited about dragging a Black queer man through the mud without all the facts, I can only imagine you have a lot of shit in your house that you wouldn't want to come to light.
I'm not dying on any hill. I'm not making any pronouncement either way. I just don't trust the system and this all still feels fishy and Jussie continues to profess his innocence.Not gonna jump to any conclusions what with the whole faction of MAGA Trumpland determining this was a hoax from the beginning while also claiming any negative story about their messiah Donald is fake news. Things are more complicated, you dumbfucks.
He just sees a black person getting caught doing something illegal as injustice.I like how he gets butthurt that they didn't charge Manafort / did charge Toilet with too many separate offences. As if the number of counts matters. It's what those offences are. You'll go down for way longer for one count of first degree murder than for fifty counts of talking with your mouth full.
It's like his hardwired NPC brain simply sees a number devoid of context and goes into screech mode solely based on it.
