What's the opposite of diversity again? Oh yes, university.
The insanity at university campuses continues. A diversity officer at Goldsmith University is on the defensive after banning white people from an event.
Bahar Mustafa planned an event awhile back to diversify the curriculum – by banning white people.
According to The Daily Caller, Mustafa said “If you’ve been invited and you’re a man and/or white PLEASE DON’T COME just cos I invited a bunch of people and hope you will be responsible enough to respect this is a BME [Black and Minority Ethnic] Women and non-binary event only.”
She then posted a picture of herself next to a poster that reads “No white-cis-men pls” with 'tears' dripping into a cup labeled 'male tears'.
Now, Mustafa is claiming that she is incapable of racism.
In a video posted to YouTube, Mustafa is refuting claims that she's racist and sexist.
“There have been charges laid against me that I am racist and sexist towards white men. I, an ethnic minority woman, cannot be racist or sexist towards white men, because racism and sexism describe structures of privilege based on race and gender, and therefore women of color and minority genders cannot be racist or sexist, since we do not stand to benefit from such a system.”
Perhaps most concerning is what followed: “Reverse racism and sexism are not real,” she added.
She's right though. Reverse racism and sexism are not real. Because it's racism and sexism. There's no 'reverse' about it.
Do you agree that Bahar Mustafa is a racist and a sexist? Sound off in the comments.
