New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s college poem from 2011 is preserved in the Boston University website archives, and it is a doozy. Ocasio-Cortez was then known as “Sandy.”
The poem is entitled “Questions,” and reads as follows:
Where are we going?
When birds sing to one another, are they looking for melody or harmony?
I’ve never been the one with answers.
How is it that our eyes betray us?
What does tomorrow bring?
Just questions. Enigmatic, urgent, smoldering questions.
But this, this is a world of answers:
where to go, what to do, how to get rich quick –
the degree to make you slick
the title you want to hit
the right dosage for your sick.
Well, I’ve forgotten about the ready-made bullets in that gun
because for me, not knowing is half the fun
It’s the uncertain moment before a first kiss
It’s trying to remember if your seatbelt clicked
It’s the ride.
And I don’t really know about this world full of answers
But I think I’ll hold on to my questions
Because if not knowing is half the fun
Then inventing the answers on a bed of dew drops is the other
I’ll show you the color of my love
or at least I can try
but maybe in that case, two makes better than one.
I just ask that you leave your answers at home
because to be honest, I don’t really care about where we’re going.
I care about who we become along the way.”
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
