All-Male Historically Black College is Criticized for Toxic Masculinity

Published

on

Morehouse College, America’s only all-male historically black college or university, pushes the “Morehouse Man” ideology based on ideals like “acuity, integrity and agency.”

This college’s motto has inspired the likes of Martin Luther King Jr., Howard Thurman, Spike Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, and Herman Cain to become respected African American leaders in their respective fields.

However, one professor views the Morehouse Man as a “toxic idea” according to a report from The College Fix.

In a speech on October 25, 2019, Georgetown University Law Professor Jill Morrison criticized the concept.

During the Georgetown Women and Gender Studies Program’s “Gender+Justice Annual Faculty Research Colloquium“, she sustained that Morehouse College’s standards create an “exceptionally toxic environment for those who do not conform to the ideal for black masculinity.”

Her talk was focused on Title IX discrimination of single-sex HBCUs with regard to their transgender policies. Throughout her talk, she spent most of the time bashing Morehouse College as a center of toxic masculinity.

Morrison went on to quote an alumnus of the college who argued that the Morehouse Man ideal “…represents the perfect storm of homophobia, racial and class anxieties of exceptional negroes, masculine gender trouble, class conflict and fundamentalist religious baggage, or as some might say, ‘heritage or tradition.’”

Despite the fact that Morehouse will begin to admit transgender men, or biological women who identify as men, next year, Morrison continued to attack the HBCU.

“Most troubling,” she stated, is that “if a student transitions from a man to a woman or identifies as a woman, that student will no longer be eligible to matriculate at Morehouse and graduate.”

On other hand, Morrison used the example of the historic, all-female Spelman College to illustrate their more “progressive” policies of accepting trans women and letting women currently enrolled at the college transition to men and still graduate.

However, in Morrison’s view, Spelman could go even further by providing for “more gender inclusive housing and bathrooms” at the all-women’s college. Morrison claimed that the first “male” Spelman graduate in 2017 complained about a “lack of understanding of the non-binary on campus and backlash from those who questioned his place at an all-women’s college.”

Before Morehouse decided to admit trans men, Morrison published a research project titled “Redefining the ‘Morehouse Man’: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity at Morehouse College in the Wake of Spelman’s Decision to Accept Transwomen” in the Journal of Gender, Race & Justice during the Spring of 2019.

It asserted that “although Title IX allows for single-sex colleges to discriminate on the basis of sex, this exemption should be read narrowly to require Morehouse to accept transmen.”

In addition, the research project reviewed “Morehouse’s record of being hostile to those who identify as gay and/or gender non-conforming, and its legal obligations to these students.”

At the colloquium, Morrison profusely praised Mount Holyoke College, a women’s college in Massachusetts, which accepts every gender identity except individuals born male who identify as male.

“The mission of women’s colleges is not diminished by the presence of anyone who supports that mission, regardless of their gender identity,” she stated.

As political correctness becomes ingrained at universities nationwide, there will be more calls to get rid of “toxic masculinity” at universities like Morrison wants at HBCUs.

The radical left and their surrogates at universities want to eliminate all sane facets of Western societies and re-engineer them along cultural and biological lines.

Such moves will put many American freedoms and traditions at risk of being trampled on.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
