Grant Funding For American Social Psychoses

Grant Awarded to Study Microaggressions in Academic Libraries

In the magical land of academia, nothing is too moronic to warrant a cash grant, provided it helps to advance the corrosion of cultural Marxism:

Two professors have been awarded a Diversity Research Grant from the American Library Association to study “racial microaggressions in libraries.”

“Minority Student Experiences with Racial Microaggressions in the Academic Library” is an upcoming research project that will be jointly led by Nicole A. Cooke, an assistant professor at the School of Information Sciences at Illinois, and Miriam E. Sweeney, an assistant professor at the University of Alabama.

“This study [will use] surveys and focus groups to garner further insight into the specific experiences surrounding racial microaggressions directed at racial and ethnic minority students in the context of accessing library spaces and services on campus,” according to the ALA’s announcement.

This isn’t a new field of “research.”

Auburn University librarian Jaena Alabi published a comprehensive study of racial microaggressions in libraries two years ago, finding that “some librarians of color have had racial microaggressions directed at them by their colleagues.”

You may think that microaggressions would be impossible to find in an environment as rigidly politically correct as a college library. However,

Through an online survey, Alabi found that minority librarians face numerous racial microaggressions at work, such as being told that they “complain about race too much” and having a colleague claim to be “colorblind.”

These are horrors that people of politically preferred pigmentation must endure. It is a high price to pay for their privileged status.

Because a mind is terrible thing to waste… The DUMBEST College Courses For 2015


“The word “We” is as lime poured over men, which sets and hardens to stone, and crushes all beneath it, and that which is white and that which is black are lost equally in the grey of it. It is the word by which the depraved steal the virtue of the good, by which the weak steal the might of the strong, by which the fools steal the wisdom of the sages…” ~Ayn Rand – Anthem
