Michael Stuart Kelly Posted April 26, 2017 Share Posted April 26, 2017 Peak Identity (SJW) You just have to see this to believe what our educational system is doing to young minds. This video is by a marketing professor at Concordia University In Montreal, Gad Saad. He numbers and names a YouTube series of videos as "The Saad Truth." Saad said what he found is not satire. People are actually doing this. My favorite part, though, is not from current professors. It's Saad's introduction as he's describing the way authors start their blurbs and articles on the Inside Higher Ed site. Taken from the video: Quote In many of these fields -- popular culture, women's studies, post-modernism, African-American studies, ethnic studies, all those-- whenever somebody begins an article or any form of communication they always start off by expressing what their identities are. Because this, in a sense, limits the scope of their experience. Because you couldn't speak about number theory, or any scientific theory without first saying: "Hello, my name is Sir Isaac Newton. I am a celibate white cisgendered male." And then you go ahead and discuss calculus. But the other stuff is hilarious, too. In fact, you can read the transcript and get links here: Gad Saad: This Is Not Satire, This Is Peak Identity Politics Being Reached.
