"Your DNA Is An Abomination": Op-Ed In TXST Student Paper Cheers "White Death"

This kind of BS doesn't offend me or anything, and I have no interest in preventing people from discussing ideas, of course. The ideas seem paradigmatically racist, but that doesn't mean they aren't true--so discuss away, if you like. Of course they aren't true, for reasons I've discussed many times...but that's a different point. This sort of batty far-left pseudo-scholarship or pseudo-social-science is only worth discussing because it's so widespread and influential. As far as intellectual merit goes, it gets a very low 'F.' Serious scholars wouldn't touch such nonsense with a ten-foot pole.
   I'll just mention once again that it's worth reflecting on the radical double standard with respect to this stuff at American universities. If you're white, male, whatever, the constraints on what you are permitted to say are extremely strict. Even something true and innocent can ruin your career / life...even if it is obviously being intentionally misconstrued. On the other hand, if you're in a group at the top of the progressive stack, you can say just about anything you want about whites, no matter how overtly, undeniably, intentionally racist (and even borderline-murderous) and get published. In fact, in some of the weaker reaches of the humanities, social sciences and victim-studies disciplines, you can build a whole career on it.
   So far as I can tell, this double standard is indefensible.

[Really, ought to read this just because it's so hilariously loony, and so overtly, undeniably racist.]

If it was not already clear that "hate speech" is a politically convenient tool to silence enemies of the Left, that this just slid by the censors at Texas State hammers the point home.
