A black college professor at Fordham University wants being black to be counted as a disability.
“Blackness, of course, is not, by itself, an impairment, however, disability law recognizes that many traits understood as disabling do not necessarily arise from a medical condition, but are instead simply traits that create disadvantage when combined with an inhospitable social or physical environment. To recognize Blackness as a disability therefore requires us to acknowledge the ways in which racial hierarchies and White privilege persist and are embedded within these laws, policies, and practices such that they reify the very inequities they seek to eliminate.”
I don’t think she really thought this one through.
From a Social Justice perspective this double downs on victim status. Not just are black people entitled to racial victim points but because of how they are treated they deserve disability victim points.
To anyone outside the insanity of Social Justice, what this says is:
Black people are invalids. They lack the physical and mental fortitude to handle living in Western societies. They have to be coddled and accommodated or else they fail.
Congratulations, this professor just managed to go full circle and come to the same conclusion as the Klan from the opposite direction – black people are inferior.
One can only go so far down the victim status road before a person stops being the victim of a bad system and instead loses all personal accountability. She crossed that Rubicon.
It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic.
