Yale Set to Axe Art History Course for Focus on White Male Artists

The cultural inheritance of western civilization is being tossed to the wind.

Yale University is set to axe a storied Introduction to Art History course on account of the classes’ focus on ‘white male’ artists.

“Introduction to Art History: Renaissance to the Present” has been a common prerequisite class for students of all majors studying at Yale. The course recently became a target of criticism from within the Yale student body for its alleged unfair focus on European art since the Renaissance.

Marisa Bass, Yale’s director of undergraduate studies, released a politically correct and sanitized statement on the cancellation of the class, confirming that the academic established caved to a mob of aggrieved students who oppose the traditions of western civilization.

Yale’s History of Art department is deeply committed to representing the intellectual diversity of its students and its faculty, and we believe that introductory surveys are an essential opportunity to continue to challenge, rethink and rewrite the narratives surrounding the history of engagement with art, architecture, images and objects across time and place. These surveys and those that we will continue to develop in the future are designed in recognition of an essential truth: that there has never been just one story of the history of art.”

The final run of the course in the spring semester will supposedly seek to question the very premise of art in the western tradition and will question its relevance, an ignoble end to a course being axed in a purge of Western Christian traditions from a major American institution.

Certainly, civilizations from across the world have produced expressions of art that have significant cultural value. But the study of western art shouldn’t be controversial at one of the United States’ major universities.

Left-wing legacy institutions like Yale continue to separate themselves from their own academic traditions.

DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views

Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.

Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.

The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.

I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.

It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.

Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.

Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
