Maoist self-education comes to America

Last week, I was sitting in yet another equity meeting, listening to a reiteration of the principle that we must discriminate against some people in order to achieve equality of outcome. The instructor and attendants regurgitated phrases on educating oneself to promote diversity. “What are you doing to educate yourself on becoming an anti-racist?” has become a recurring question parroted in faculty meetings, job interviews, and graduate seminars. Superficially innocuous, this question is both unfounded and malign, postulating that one is in fact racist, and that this racism requires vigorous self-work to cure it
