Whites are physically stronger than blacks.
At the time, you rarely heard such criticism outside of wingnutty lesbianism-causes-witchcraft circles. It felt bizarre, transgressive, and novel. Some were kindred spirits. A few at least had interesting ideas. Many others were horrible people next to whom the lesbian-causes-witchcraft types looked like Voltairesque voices of reason.
But they all had something in common: The lesbian-causes-witchcraft types had their talk shows, but among moderate liberals social justice criticism stayed mostly confined to a bunch of small blogs.

Complaining about social justice seems to be getting, dare I say, almost trendy. The level of social-justice-inspired bullying online and offline that can drive people to suicide for even slightly disagreeing with social justice orthodoxy. The chilling effect on research when science is subordinated to political ideologyand how researchers whose results contradict social justice orthodoxy can expect to be ignored at best and subject to death threats and harassment campaigns at worst.
The use of social justice as a bludgeon by which sophisticated elites from top colleges can condemn all subcultures except their sophisticated elite subculture as being problematicand credibly demand that they subordinate themselves to the sophisticated elites as penance. Meanwhile, when important public figures and nationally circulating magazines complain about the social justice movement, I usually see language and arguments more like the following: College students are big babies!
And they want everything to be safe all the time! These seem like different agendas. In particular, the nobody-blogger angle focuses on ways in which social justice is used to justify aggression, and the mass-media angle focuses on ways in which social justice is used to coddle weakness.
Instead, the second has gone viral in the national media, and the first remains stuck among the same few second-tier sites and SJ-critical nobody bloggers whom these kinds of things are always stuck among. Or to be even more cynical: And on the one hand, anything that inspires discussion of police brutality at city council meetings is good.
I think that is the problem. But rhetorically-gifted Yale professors who get thinkpieces published in The Atlantic are exactly the sort of people who would take over the wider SJ-critical movement, become its most important voice, and define what it means both to the rest of the world and to its own members.
That would be a disaster. Stop crying, little babies! All this is doing is granting social justice activists their most dubious claim: Finally, I think this might be a wake-up call to worry about the role of academia in media more generally.
Studies find that women are less likely to be assaulted on college campuses than off them. I worry recent criticism of social justice is revealing the same thing.I actually would like to start a system that rewarded black men for fucking white women, even gave them money, as long as they told us who these white bitches where and made their names public.

Rae West 20th August Some people believe that whites need to reunite as Christian communities as part of the process of opposing so-called 'Jews'. Or to return to what they think was a comfortable, better life as Christians.
