The University of Kansas is angering many with its upcoming course offering titled “Angry White Male Studies,” including U.S. Representative Ron Estes.
The controversial class, which will be taught at the public university starting next fall, will delve into “the deeper sources of this emotional state while evaluating recent manifestations of male anger” in the U.S. and Great Britain since the 1950s, according to TheBlaze.
The class, listed as HUM 365, will examine “how both dominant and subordinate masculinities are represented and experienced in cultures undergoing periods of rapid change connected to modernity as well as to rights-based movements of women, people of color, homosexuals, and trans individuals.”
Disturbed by the divisive new course, Rep. Estes has provided a compelling argument against it.
“Instead of a course to unite people and empower women, KU has decided to offer a class that divides the student population and could pose a Title IX violation by creating a hostile campus environment based on gender,” Estes tweeted.
Title IX bans programs that get federal funds from discriminating on the basis of sex. Campus Reform noted that the University of Kansas was the recipient of $148,178,000 in federal research money in 2017.
Interestingly, according to Justin Haskins, HUM 365 will be taught by a white male. Haskins, the executive editor and a research fellow at The Heartland Institute and the editor-in-chief of StoppingSocialism.com, wrote an opinion piece about the bizarre University of Kansas course offering for Fox News. In the op-ed, Haskins revealed that the course will be administered by Christopher Forth, a history and humanities professor. Referring to Forth, Haskins cleverly stated, “No word on how angry he is – or if he will begin the course by apologizing for his gender and race, and all the evil deeds perpetrated by white men going back to prehistoric times.”
The editor-in-chief of StoppingSocialism.com went on to add, “Perhaps Forth can assign students to evaluate his anger level and write term papers on that important topic. If they deem him too angry, maybe some tranquilizers and anger therapy could be used to modify his behavior.”
Haskins shared his belief that HUM 365 will foster the “angry white male” myth that seemed to have originated when Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the United States. Former President Bill Clinton played a role in starting this discriminatory farce. In December of 2016 after his wife lost the election most believed she would win, the former President said that Trump ‘doesn’t know much,’ but he does know … how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”
Concerning Clinton, Haskins remarked, “The former president was still clearly upset – dare we call him an angry white male? – as he struggled with the fact that Trump had destroyed his chance to crack the glass ceiling and become the first presidential spouse in American history to hold the title of ‘first gentleman.’” Unfortunately, Clinton wasn’t the only individual who blamed angry white males for Trump’s stunning 2016 election win over Hillary Clinton.
In a piece for the left-leaning Guardian, J. Oliver Conroy agreed with the former President’s stance. Conroy wrote that Trump was “propelled to power by a wave of angry white men.” A headline in the Washington Post in 2017 said “Why are so many white men so angry?” The editor-in-chief of StoppingSocialism.com stated, “For a group seemingly obsessed with political correctness and ‘tolerance,’ the left seems oddly fixated on convincing the country it has an ‘angry white man’ problem, furthering the same sort of racial and gender stereotypes we’re always being told ought to ruin people’s careers and ostracize them from civilized society.”
While Estes hinted that HUM 365 might pose a Title IX violation, Haskins strongly suggested that Americans stop agreeing to pay for the madness liberal professors are teaching America’s college students.
“If those of us who believe in conserving the values of the Declaration of Independence want to stop the expansion of left-wing indoctrination on college campuses, we must stop agreeing to pay for it with our tax dollars,” he said. “And we especially need to stop voluntarily funding these schools and supporting their alumni activities and networks.”
