    According to a columnist for the Duke University student newspaper, America’s “obsession with the First Amendment” is really just “an expression of white supremacy.”

    “I am thinking about how an urgent and overdue conversation about racism—on our campus and across our country — has been derailed by a diversionary and duplicitous obsession with the First Amendment,” graduate student Bennett Carpenter wrote in university newspaper The Chronicle. “I am thinking about how quickly the conversation has shifted from white supremacy to white fragility — and how this shift is itself an expression of white supremacy.”

    The government should shut down these student newspapers. That is what is so great about Cuba and Venezuela--they shut down their media. Ecuador is also in the process of getting rid of their newspapers.

    The problem isn't free speech or "white supremacy". The problem is the collectivist indoctrination American children are getting in public schools and colleges.

    Kids aren't being taught to think, they're being trained what to think.

    We don't have an education system in this country. We have an indoctrination system.

    What is sad - is that so many people are buying into it.

    Just when I thought I have heard it all, a new crybaby comes upon the scene.
