The yellow thumbs-up emoji

NPR: Academics argue white people using the yellow thumbs-up emoji ‘signals a lack of awareness about white privilege’

I know that I have had it with the racist white privilege emojis on APS. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

Okay, boomer.

When you think about it, it's kind of funny that the yellow ones didn't become racist until after the SJWs started demanding other colors. Having been around since "emojis" were simply ":)", as best as I can recall, yellow was the first color and the only one available for a long, long while.

Why hasn't anyone realized that both the subject and color make this common emoji racist?   :O

Wow!

So a POC claims that music theory is White supremacy, a professor of music theory puts out an academic journal in which some articles support the White supremacist view while others rebut it (sounds like a healthy intellectual exercise to me) ... so the school
  • Orders him to submit a report about his actions
  • Without waiting for the report, cancels his position as head of the journal
  • Cancels funding for the journal
  • Cancels the center that the journal was associated with

... and then, when he sues, claims his assertions are "baseless" and that the university didn't take any adverse action against him.

You want cognitive dissonance? I give you ... cognitive dissonance.

"The defendants have formally notified the court of appeals that we are appealing the district court’s decision to deny our motion to dismiss," a spokesperson for the school said. "Dr. Jackson’s faculty colleagues have not harmed him in any way, and federal court is not the place to try the plaintiff’s baseless allegations against them. Further, neither the Board of Regents nor the university have taken any adverse action against Dr. Jackson."
So they have taken action against him, but not any adverse action.  Sounds like they are saying they have done stuff aimed at him, but none of it actually hurt him so please dismiss the suit.

That does appear to be their argument. Apparently that university must not have an English Department:

, ˈad-ˌvərs \

Public universities who behave this way need to be defunded by the state.

And repeal federal student loan support entirely.

I had to look up the definition also to make sure I understood why they used that word.   =D  Seemed like an odd way to say it.  I usually just wing it with vocabulary, but I shouldn't.

Well, my point was that, as I read the definition, the university's actions very much were "adverse" to the professor. Doing things that meet the definition in multiple ways while claiming the opposite hopefully won't get them far in court.

It was said Black and Hispanic voters were moving in large numbers toward the GOP in the 2020 election.  It really didn't turn out that way.  I don't expect any difference in the mid-terms despite these polling numbers.
