I’ve penned a new op-ed at Campus Reform. It is about a new course being offered to undergraduate students at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA this fall. My message to those who want to learn about this: pay for it on your own damn dime.
Campus Reform learned last week that George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax, VA plans to offer a class on Trayvon Martin this fall.
Given GMU’s reputation as bastion for leftist thought, this class will no doubt be used to canonize the slain Florida youth while demonizing the now acquitted George Zimmerman. No doubt Professor Rutledge Dennis of the Sociology and Anthropology Department plans to tear apart the verdict, arrived at by 6-person jury, and press upon the way he understands the narrative from his perch in the ivory tower in Fairfax Station.
Of course I could be wrong about this. Perhaps the good Professor Dennis intends to use this class as an example of what our justice system looks like when it works. Or maybe he wants to hold a calm discussion on how the heartbreaking tragedy of Trayvon Martin brought out the worst of the Americas left. I hope this is the case, but a quick look at the professor’s body of work makes me fear this will not be the case.
