Civil War on the Left, Part 54: Campus Cannibalism
Ed. What could be more delightful than stories of the left eating their own!

By Steven Hayward
of our Civil War on the Left series notes two recent incidents on campus that
should fuel a big bump in popcorn futures prices in the commodity pits. First,
at the University of Texas at Austin, a leftist professor who checks all the
right boxes is nonetheless in hot water because he stumbled over one of the
advanced feminist borders. From The
An Antifa group at the University of Texas at Austin is calling for
“revolutionary violence” against assistant professor Robert L. Reece after he
wrote a column running afoul of feminist dogma.
Antifa: Geniuses on the March
Reece isn’t the kind of academic that radical leftists typically
Reece checks so many politically correct boxes that he’d normally be
immune from criticism. He’s a young black sociologist from a poor community in
Mississippi cotton country, deeply involved in issues of intense interest to
the Left. He
writes for a publication of the race-obsessed, far-left Southern
Poverty Law Center. His academic
research “revolves around the question ‘What is race?’ as well as inquiries
into the historical origins of racial inequality, colorism/skin tone
stratification, and racial fluidity.”
Reece’s problems began when he wrote a March 20 article
for Vox, “How men are
adjusting to the #MeToo era: ‘This is going to take a really long time.’” The
piece is subtitled, “Men discuss the gray areas of intimate encounters.” . . .
The story goes on to
explain how a student in one of Reece’s classes, who is now fully “woke,” is
reflecting on some of his past sexual encounters that may not have fully lived
up to the new standards. And naturally the campus left wants Reece to report
this student to be prosecuted for rape.
Meanwhile, up at
Columbia University, a distinguished professor is in trouble for remarking in
the classroom that the general term for black in the 1960s and 1970s was
“negro.” This bit of historical accuracy upset some students. (Aside: I checked
the Census Bureau once to see when it stopped using “Negro” in its racial
classifications; if memory serves, they changed to “black” in 1977.) As
And the author is black: UNCLEAN!!!
Maria Fernanda Martinez, CC ’18, was one of two nonwhite students in an
American studies seminar last year. Her professor told the class that, when
studying the 1960s, it was fine to use the word “Negroes” to refer to African
Americans, as it was the term used at the time.
Martinez, troubled by these comments, sent her professor an email after
class, including links to resources about why using the term is offensive, but
said she saw no real change in her professor’s approach to teaching the
“I didn’t pay attention in class after that,” said Martinez.
Here’s the punchline:
the professor in question is Todd Gitlin, a far-left veteran of the SDS and the
protest movement of the 1960s. I hope he’s enjoying the fruits of a campus
culture that he helped to create.
