Bringer of Color
It’s time for Affirmative Action to get the creators away from their creations.
An upcoming science and technology symposium slated to take place at Williams College promises a unique feature: it will showcase “new” voices in the field, and those voices will only come from scholars of color.
“New Voices in Science and Technology Studies: A C3 Symposium,” set for early November at the private Massachusetts-based liberal arts university, invited scholars to submit papers if they represent a “historically underrepresented group.”
The call for papers specifies that means either “African Americans, Alaska Natives, Arab Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.”
The idea that non-whites are underrepresented in white countries is preposterous. Whites are underrepresented in every non-white country, while non-whites flock to white countries.
There are way, way, WAY more non-whites in white countries than whites in non-white countries.
Part of the application process asked applicants to write a couple sentences proving themselves as a member of a “historically underrepresented group.” Yet the application also provides an equal employment opportunity statement that people from all backgrounds are welcome.
Chosen scholars will receive a $500 honorarium and be hosted by Williams College as they present their papers to the audience, organizers state, adding “we aim to create an inclusive, intellectually enriching experience for all involved, including the visiting speakers and the faculty and students of Williams.”
Inclusive, yes, that’s the right word. No white people allowed, also people wanting to speak at the event have to apply and the organizers will vet them, which is totally not a form of discrimination and definitely what “inclusive” means.
Williams College Associate Professor of Political Science and Chair of Science and Technology Studies Laura Ephraim is the point of contact for the event. For the last three weeks she has ignored repeated phone calls and emails from The College Fix seeking comment on the event.
Promotional materials for the symposium state: “The Science & Technology Studies Program at Williams College invites papers on any topic concerned with science and technology and their relationship to society for a day-long symposium showcasing the work of early-career scholars (ABD or recent PhD) from historically underrepresented groups.”
If not for white men, there’d be no universities, no science, and no technology. Any attempts at separating white men from their creations is a satanic attack on Creation itself.
These people are acting like the devil.
Separating creators from their creations is a recurrent topic in our society.
They want you far away from God.
They want fathers far away from their children.
They want white men far away from science, technology, their countries, and their planet.
Allowing this to happen is no different than letting Evil win.
