University professor awarded $200,000 taxpayer grant to research “microaggressions”

StaffRebel Columnist

This is just another way to flush $200,000 down the toilet.

The National Science Foundation awarded Mary Atwater, a professor of science and mathematics education at the University of Georgia $229,061 to study the implications of “microaggressions”.

A statement from the University of Georgia says this study will also look at minority participation in science and math.

“There has been little research in this area in science education,” Atwater claims. “In fact, there is very little microaggression research that has been done in which the participants are people of European-American descent.”

What's next? A $500,000 taxpayer-funded study on safe spaces? How ridiculous.

I wonder if she’ll interview me in her research. I feel excluded and discriminated against by the mere fact that she got that grant and I didn’t. I need a safe space from her micro-aggression. Where are those SJWs when you need them?

How about a research grant to study the effects of how PC language and behaviour is killing society?!!
There should be vasts amount of evidence to examine and review.
