Falsifying Life

My university is searching for the top administrator to substitute for the one who recently retired.

The job qualifications for the candidates include “a proven record of actively promoting and enhancing anti-racism.” Unless we have all gone suddenly senile, we should be aware that “anti-racism” is a very recent fad. Nobody heard of it until 15 minutes ago. Nobody can have a proven record of promoting something that was only just invented.

So what can we conclude? Everybody knows it’s a travesty but everybody is pretending not to know out of fear that masks as indifference or ignorance. We are trapped in a web of these seemingly little, unimportant lies, forfeiting our right to remain fully human.

  1. Someone should sue on grounds that it is operant conditioning presented as employment criteria. It would be a great lawsuit imo.

    “a proven record of actively promoting and enhancing austerity.” ?

    1. “had marches for equality and “Black Power” ”

      Not necessarily relevant for the “anti-racism” crowd… and if you don’t understand why then you need to educate yourself about anti-racism (or so they say).

    2. Yes, but anti-racism is the opposite of what those marches were trying to accomplish. Anti-racism is very anti-equality, they hate MLK’s “I have a dream.” It’s a very new, very different fad.
