Unhappy College Professor: Believing in Hard Work is White Ideology

OK! WTF am I missing here?

LINK...

Quote:
Pennsylvania State University-Brandywine professor Angela Putman recently asserted in an academic paper that the notion “if I work hard, I can be successful” is merely a product of white ideology,
Quote:
Angela Putman conducted a study to critique and examine “ideologies within college students’ discourse that are foundational to whiteness.” Her resulting conclusion published on Thursday was that “meritocracy”, or the belief that people should rise based on the fruits of their own labor, is a "white ideology." In her mind, this "white ideology" is unfortunately widely accepted in academia.

The crazy thing to me is that a lot of the folks I see saying these things had to work very hard to become successful. How can one buy in so completely on an ideology that is self-defeating?

So, she is prepared to resign her position so that someone who has been harmed by the white ideology can be given her job which they really "deserved". It would be the best way for her to simultaneously recognize and repudiate her privilege.

I'm guessing this is some sort of modern social/mental illness.
Pretty much all the black people I know would find this deeply insulting.

If one just repeats, "hard work is white notion," three times, it makes it not racist. Two times, racist. Four times, racist. But, three...

I know these people don't intend to be racist, but they just can't seem to help themselves...

She's a fucking idiot.

There are millions of minorities in this country who believe just as much in hard work and the fruits thereof as anyone else.

There's a "progressive/commie" insurgency happening all around us in the Country right before our eyes (tightening my tinfoil hat). It's why the left is losing their shit since the 2016 election....it was a seemingly huge setback for the "agenda".

Most we can seem to do at this time is mock and ridicule their stupidity.

I only had to look at her Facebook page to understand where she is coming from. Obama essentially said/believed the same thing. It was big gubment that built America, not hard working Muricans employed by private industry. But I do agree the intent in the OP's title.

SO in Lue of hark work to get ahead what does she suggest, Laziness works better while sitting around waiting for people to hand you money??

Using her own Ideology she should hand out A's for students who do not show up to class and punish those who put effort into their work, or better yet give away her salary to those who just plain gaff off her class as a reward for resisting "The Man" and the oppression system of "Hard Work gets you ahead of your peers".

We are living in The Twilight Zone of reality!

I'm no professor. Had to drop plans for my Ph.D back in the day due to various reasons.
However, after having read this article my not-professor brain came to a conclusion that the entire thesis presented in that article is ridiculous and reeks of PC BS, the research is dodgy at best and conclusions are useless. Prof.Putman shoots herself in the foot IMO, because her findings seem to be racist not only in regards to white people, but other races as well. This article might be seen as implying that only whites believe in working hard and rest is living by some other, radically different ideology which prof. Putman fails to present but if it is different from "working hard" it might be "slacking off". What of course is incredibly offensive towards all non-white people.
This article looks to me like attention whoring/self promotion plus attempt to get some money from publication. I get the fact that because of the new wave of political correctness that begins to permeate entire modern society some academics try to jump the bandwagon looking for monies and popularity (maybe politics?) but for me this article is just ridiculous.

Quote:
Putman did not say how she would be grading students in the future. According to her theory, grading based on their merits and test scores would be a perpetuation of white ideological privilege.
This is outrageous, she flat-out says she will not grade people based on their knowledge and measurements of it, but by whatever. She doesn't know what would that be. This is a university professor saying this, for God's sake.

Quote:
Putman believes that it is somehow a bad thing to teach students personal responsibility.
It is...a..professor...nevermind.

That's the kind of bizarro world thinking you get when you live in an academic echo chamber and shut down dialogue with people who hold opinions different from your own. i.e. the entire PC/SJW movement.

Reading Atlas Shrugged. The parallels between that book and what's happening in America today are scary.

The good news is, as I've said before, in a land full of fucking idiots there is opportunity for the enlightened.

One of my favorite books. You are correct, the parallels are amazing.

Exactly. You have to wonder why this subject even became a topic in her work. It's like she is trying to throw cover for someone and make excuses for their mediocrity (presuming they have reached that level).

You guys really haven't figured this out? It speaks to every base and easily exploitable psychological weakness in humans. Blame transference to an easy scapegoat. The story of the meek and oppressed minority. Validation of self-defeating scripts and swapping them out with acceptance of mediocrity.

The previous administration opened up Pandora's box - and the evils are coming home to roost.

Well then...

The professor would be pissed-off on some of the shit I say to relatives:

NO! You can't use my place when we're gone. The last time you fuckers didn't pay any bills yet, you stayed there!?

NO! The Heineken & Guinness is for me. The Milwaukee Best is for the rest of ya'll! You don't buy shit yet, you're over here drinking up the good stuff.

DaFuq! How the hell is she getting a to-go plate of crabs that, I had shipped in from Maryland? She shows up out of the blue and eats God only knows how many crabs and now, she wants too take a plate to go? How about this; FUCK NO!

NOPE! I'm not driving across town to pick up my niece(s) so they can stay for the week and turn right around and drop them off? I love'em however, I don't love'em that much!

I guess God blessed us where we live, fuck the numerous jobs that had me away from home so that I can pay for this bitch!
