Cornell University Calls Universe Racist in New Astronomy Course
Brace yourselves, wokeness has ascended to another level, another galaxy even.
Cornell University is now labeling the universe as racist asking the question, “Is there a connection between the cosmos and the idea of racial blackness?”
The description of the course states:
Conventional wisdom would have it that the “black” in black holes has nothing to do with race. Surely there can be no connection between the cosmos and the idea of racial blackness. Can there? Contemporary Black Studies theorists, artists, fiction writers implicitly and explicitly posit just such a connection. Theorists use astronomy concepts like “black holes” and “event horizons” to interpret the history of race in creative ways, while artists and musicians conjure blackness through cosmological themes and images. Co-taught by professors in Comparative Literature and Astronomy, this course will introduce students to the fundamentals of astronomy concepts through readings in Black Studies.
Black people (or the white people getting offended on their behalf) do not have any claim on the color black. They don’t and they can’t. Everything black is not bad. Everything black is not good. Sometimes black is just neutral or descriptive.
Think about it…why would a black hole be described as black? Is it because whoever came up with the term was racist? Was it to disparage black people? No. But here’s a really radical idea…maybe it is called a black hole because light can’t escape the gravity of the event and therefore that mass is absent of color, or in other words BLACK!
Look at an image of a black hole. The color of it is black.
It is an absolute disgusting thing that racism has made its way into science.
Author Heather Mac Donald said, “Today’s academic charlatanism consists in part in mistaking rhetoric for knowledge and words for things. This sleight of hand is particularly prevalent in matters relating to race. Hunter College professor Philip Ewell argues that the concept of tonal and harmonic hierarchies in music theory is a stand-in for pernicious racial hierarchies. … Seeing specters of racism everywhere, the racial avengers are tearing down every institution associated with Western civilization, simply because of its ‘whiteness.’ Science had stood as a guard against such metaphorical, magical thinking. Bit by bit, it is succumbing.”
