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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
