George Washington University Hides Syllabus Encouraging Students to Read Book that Connects Conservatism to Racism

Greg Piper of the College Fix reported that George Washington University took down a syllabus that features Conservatism and Racism, and Why in America They Are the Same,

GWU made the decision after the Washington Free Beacon made an inquiry about it on July 15, 2020, according to a report from Chrissy Clark.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion released the “Solidarity Resource Syllabus” to recommend over 100 books to students dealing with the topic of racism in America. In this book, the author Robert Smith argues that even black conservatives are racist:

Repeatedly I was asked, ‘Are you saying that conservatism is racism, that all conservatives are racist?’ Aren’t there black conservatives? Are they racist?’…. My answer to most of these questions was a qualified yes.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, GWU released a number of online programs in the past month covering racism in America that attracted 5,000 registrations. Some of the subjects include the roles nonwhites play in “anti-blackness” and “white people in racial justice and anti-racism”:

Political Science professor Samuel Goldman told the Free Beacon that the syllabus’s recommendation of the Smith’s book “as the sole resource on the topic gives the impression that GWU is promoting a specific orthodoxy rather than inviting students to study and reflect.”

Clark reported that although the syllabus was blocked from regular access, the diversity office still had a copy available on its website.

Clark tweeted, “My answer to most of these questions was a qualified yes.” The books title? “Conservatism and Racism, and Why in America They Are the Same” After repeatedly calling GW admin to ask why this was approved the school locked their ‘resource guide’.”

She added:

But silly GW forgot that their Office of Diversity posted this to their website. 48 hours later and no response from the university.

Universities have been fully infiltrated by the cultural Left.

Conservatives must make it a point to no longer attend those institutions and effectively defund all universities that promote leftist causes.
