THE BURDEN OF BAD IDEAS: A SEQUEL.

Heather McDonald writes a chapter, should she offer a revised and extended edition.  Why Milwaukee Burns.
The Black Lives Matter riots of the last two years are inseparable from a hatred of what is perceived to be “white” society and civilization.

And as important as the political stoking of that hatred is the academic race industry that keeps black victimology at a fever pitch. The 2015–2016 school year saw an outbreak of delusional self-pity among black college students across the country. They claimed to be discriminated against by faculty, administrators, fellow students, and academic standards. Never mind that many allegedly disparaged students were attending the colleges in question only because of racial preferences, despite having test scores that would automatically disqualify white or Asian applicants. Never mind that nearly every waking hour of a college administrator is devoted to the cultivation of a separatist racial consciousness among black students and to dreaming up new racial sinecures for faculty and other administrators.

The academic version of Black Lives Matter was not as physically destructive as the Milwaukee riots, but it had as corrosive an effect on civilizational norms.
How many times am I going to have to note that enabling dysfunction gets you more of it?
