Brittney Cooper — sorry, that’s Dr. Brittney Cooper — certainly takes the cake for the nation’s worst tenured radical (at least for this week, until the next academic nutjob erupts).

Armed with a Bachelor of Arts in English and political science from Howard University and a doctorate in American Studies from Emory University, the Rutgers women’s studies and Africana studies professor sure can holler. Cooper made headlines this week after her unrepentant hatred of white people went viral. Among the many dispassionate scholarly observations she shared with attendees of an online critical race theory conference were these:

— “I think that white people are committed to being villains in the aggregate.”

— “Their thinking is so murky and spiritually bankrupt.”

— “The thing I want to say to you is we got to take these motherf—-ers out.”

— “White people’s birth rates are going down … because they literally cannot afford to put their children, newer generations, into the middle class … It’s super perverse, and also they kind of deserve it.”

The Root Institute (a confab created to “advance the agenda of Black Americans” by editors of The Root online magazine, whose motto is “The Blacker the Content The Sweeter the Truth”) hyped the rant session as a “healthy dose of reality.” The “institute” effusively praised Cooper’s “masterful and unabashed ability to speak truth to power.” It’s amusing, of course, that she’s allowed to breathe any word about the Great Replacement, let alone gloat about the demographic decline — while left-wing character assassins at the Anti-Defamation League and Georgetown University Bridge Initiative accuse me of “normalizing white supremacy” or trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for decrying the very same phenomenon.

But that is how the social justice cookie crumbles.

In the interest of bending over backward to be fair, let’s pretend Cooper was just having a bad day or was caught off guard. Perhaps her true academic self is hidden in on-camera interviews and can be found in her published work. Her most recent book, “Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower,” was named a “Best Book of 2018” by the New York Public Library and hailed by, um, noted public intellectual Joy Reid of MSNBC as “a dissertation on black women’s pain and possibility.”

“Dissertation,” whoa! Must be some deep-thinking, highbrow research there. I rushed to read the opening lines of Cooper’s “Eloquent Rage” and found … yet more profane spouting and spewing:

“This is a book by a grown-a— woman written for other grown-a— women. This is a book for women who expect to be taken seriously and for men who take grown women seriously. This is a book for women who know s—- is f—-ed up. … What I have is anger. Rage, actually. … Owning anger is a dangerous thing if you’re a fat Black girl like me.”

ORDER IT NOW

I then wandered on over to Cooper’s collection of published academic writings on Google Scholar and sifted through titles such as “SlutWalks v. Ho Strolls,” “Disrespectability Politics: On Jay-Z’s B——, Beyonce’s ‘Fly’A—, and Black Girl Blue,” and “Feminism for Bada—es” in elite journals such as the Crunk Feminist Collective and Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society.

Cooper touts her rigorously researched work on “representations of Black women in popular culture, including a piece on the representation of the ‘baby mama’ figure in Hip Hop music and film; the feminist implications of Janet Jackson’s 2004 Super Bowl mishap; and the importance of Michelle Obama in the tradition of Black female leadership.” She and two other black feminist loudmouth professors also joined to produce “Feminist AF (that’s an offensive slang term): A Guide to Crushing Girlhood” targeting “loud and rowdy girls, quiet and nerdy girls … queer girls, trans girls, and gender nonbinary young people” — published by the once-esteemed book conglomerate W. W. Norton & Co.

Wokeness has made a complete and irreversible joke of higher education. Yet, too many Boomers and their Gen-X progeny continue to push their college-age kids and grandkids into these cauldrons of insanity. “There are some solid schools left in the country,” they tell themselves. “The toxicity isn’t as prevalent in STEM fields,” they insist. “A B.A. degree is still worth it for my children,” they rationalize. “If we just wish race-consciousness and racial realities away, America will be OK,” they fantasize.

News flash: Anti-white, anti-male and anti-American cancer in academia has reached Stage IV. What more evidence do you need to wake up and walk away.

  1. As usual, another hit piece by Ms Malkin. Ms Malkin found Dr. Cooper’s writings on Google Scholar and read the titles, Ms Malkin did not read the articles. I thought Oberlin, Ms Malkins alma mater turned out better scholars than that. One needs to read the substance in articles, not just the title. I have read that Ms Malkin met her husband at Oberlin, but I don’t know the campus geography that well so we do not know if Ms Malkin was one of those young women who did the walk of shame on weekend mornings. In any case, I imagine Ms Malkin does not know what a Slut Walk is or why it matters? There is, as should be no surprise, serious academic discussion concerning whether varieties of feminist thought embed racism. The scholarship is very good. But Ms Malkin just makes fun of the article titles and does not bother to engage the issues. Typical.

  2. What a steaming rotten heap of garbage. And I see that they have to drag that “nonbinary” crap into everything, of course. There are women, and there are men. There are girls, and there are boys. There are females, and there are males. This is reality, and the natural order of things. Not that hard to see.

    “The toxicity isn’t as prevalent in STEM fields”

    Oh YES it is!

    Science is dead. Has been for quite a while. Unless you’re willing to rename it “social science.”

    40 years ago there was the Aesop Fable that low tar ciggies are just as carcinogenic as “regular” ciggies. Then, to outdo Aesop, came that 2nd hand smoke fable. Reading only in newspapers and or seen on magazine shows on TV, about who found what (but never appearing in serious medical science journals or presentations where experimental design and statistical analysis of results are objectively picked apart, hurt feelings or not) afforded me my first clue.

    A student of real biostatistics in the early 70’s, I noticed those “business statistics” suddenly appearing in those so-called “scientific” studies. I also noticed the plethora of girls and some coloreds presenting those papers. Actually, that was my first clue. In case it’s mysterious to you (and it very well could be), the null hypothesis of those two forms of statistics, and acceptable experimental design, are very VERY different.

    But even worse, where were the boy mathematicians who should have immediately called it out? (I was powerless and had other things to do at the time.)

    But they ate it up. Every last licking one of them.

    And 40 years later still nobody has called these harlots out on this junk. Is everybody doing medical research these days a bona fide government employee with a degree in Sociology or Political Science? Yeah. I guess so.

    I’m not one bit surprised that this COVID jab baloney has been bought by so many…especially given how much they’ve (forcibly) outed themselves about its utter futility. And in typical religious fashion, once convinced one way or another, cajoled by those surrounding you, equally ignorant, there ain’t no mind changing, no further questions asked.

  4. Great question, Michelle. My three millennial children are products of wokism 2.0. They hate me and are useless to themselves. I am now in Eastern Europe with an appreciative wife and a normal second family.

    College education here is cheap. Instructors are pretty good. The coeds are beautiful. Men remain men, and women remain women. They see the world as it is. Why in the world American parents are not sending their kids here in droves amazes me.

    For the VAST majority of children of middle class White parents, picking up a Liberal Arts BA is part of preparing for the JOB market. Liberal Arts majors are expected to be able to WRITE competently on non-technical topics. And what MOST employers are LOOKING FOR are folks with a college degree who can write a “management plan” that is not COMPLETELY unreadable. Folks with a BS in Physics are gonna try to give their boss TECHNICAL plans, which NOBODY wants.

    A BA in Sociology indicates that the Job Applicant can FINISH something they started. There simply AIN’T any jobs in the market for actual Sociologists.

    As the job market got FLOODED with BAs in Sociology, there was some argument that the HIRING side of the post-college world would start demanding MAs in Sociology. But that never happened. The difference in salary demands between a BA and MA was simply never supported by the PAY for a Enterprise Architect or some such.

    So a Liberal Arts BA is still a useful screening tool. Folks who FAIL to get a BA have announced to the world that they just interviewed for a REALLY nifty “Garbage Collector” position. So ya wanna snatch that guy up before he gets hired by IBM…

    I think you’ve inadvertently made the case for community College for some young people who would otherwise waste 2 years and a bunch of cash on a sociology degree, or other liberal arts degree. Not that doing so is a bad if that young man comes from a true middle class or higher family. But for that young man who has to scratch up every red cent, community College is a bargain. For someone of average intelligence who paid attention in high school, a sixty credit liberal arts curriculum should give him all of the writing skills he needs. And not a dime to the big 4-year SJW/CRT factories.

    Last stat I saw on Affirmative Action, 40% of them dropped out before finishing their first year….
    They didn’t follow up on 2nd, 3rd year students….
    But a trend would make you believe that less than 10% of AA students ever graduated…..

    Haven’t seen a current stat on those numbers lately….

  9. When the Ku Klux Klan said they were like this I didn’t believe it.

    Let us guess — despite its rabid war on “White privilege,” The Root never utters so much as a peep about (((White privilege))).

  11. @Harry Huntington

    So do you positively agree with the quotes attributed to this author in the article (which seem like obnoxious and opportunistic racism to me) such as that: “I think that white people are committed to being villains in the aggregate.” If so, on what basis?

    But Ms Malkin just makes fun of the article titles and does not bother to engage the issues. Typical.

    Your esteemed & fatuous Negress:
    “The thing I want to say to you is we got to take these motherf—-ers out.”

    That’s a thinly-disguised death threat, but you, Harry Huntington, just make fun of Ms Malkin’s article and do not bother to engage the issues. Typical.

    My comment was not meant to speak to the college professor but to Ms Malkin. Ms Malkin failed to deal with the substance of the professor’s writing. Ms Malkin dismissed the professor’s works based on their titles alone. Ms Malkin should make an actual argument that the professor was wrong, not merely drop in some decontextualized quotations. Since a serious scholar like Barrington Moore could contend over 50 years ago in a delightful volume entitled A Critique of Pure Tolerancethat violence was the best way to purse social justice one cannot per se condemn a writer, such as the professor here, who counsels others to “take them out.”

    As to the state about committed villains, I do not know any white person rationally could disagree with that statement. Just look at history.

    As I point out in another comment, Barrington Moore said something similar fifty years ago. But Barrington Moore was a white Harvard Professor, so no one complained. The United States founding fathers of course believed the same thing, which is why they declared war on the King of England to seize the King’s American colonies. America is a nation built on violence. The professor’s comment is downright patriotic.

    Well you did reply to me question which I suppose is to your credit (though not much else is in my view).

    You say that “white people” are “villains” on the basis “Just look at history”. I know history very well. Your comment seems meaningful but is glib. A deep consideration of history would obviously show much merit on many levels of European history and civilisation. To smear it in this manner and to smear “white people” in this manner is perhaps now commonplace but is as distasteful as other forms of ideological racism.

    Regarding your comments on Michelle Malkin. Her article was a review of an interview with the college professor which she contexualises further by reference to her work. It is not intended as an academic discourse on her thought and that would not be appropriate here. I very much doubt it has the merit you ascribe to it but that is not necessarily relevant here…

  17. @The Anti-Gnostic

    I don’t get your point? What do you mean?

  18. @Harry Huntington

    So this gluttonous spoiled-rotten Negress wants to “take out [White] motherfuckers” and you approve.

    If Whites fail to continue submitting to their own extermination you may come to deeply regret what you wish for.

    BTW, your anti-White genocidal proclivities are often found in (((you-know-who))) — are you by any chance one of (((them)))?

    You mean Christians? And you mean the sense that Christians insist we atone for our sins? Yes I am Christian and want folks to atone for their sins.

    As we’ve seen, you don’t deny this gluttonous spoiled-rotten Negress wants to “take out [White] motherfuckers” — AND YOU APPROVE! Your idea of “atonement” seems to be the violent elimination of the White race.

    If you actually are the Christian you claim to be, you know that everyone has sinned; therefore all must “atone for their sins.” Logically that means you want to “take out” the entire human species.

    So tell us straight — do you want to “take out [White] motherfuckers” only — or all humans?
