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.

HMM: Actress Rosario Dawson Comes Out as Lesbian Just One Month After She ‘Dated’ Cory Booker

Was she his beard?

Published

Actress Rosario Dawson has officially come out as lesbian, just a month after “dating” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) during his dismal presidential campaign.

“People kept saying that I [came out]… I didn’t do that,” she said during a recent interview with Bustle. “I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now.”

Dawson claims she has only been in relationships with men up until this point, so she didn’t feel comfortable coming out of the closet officially until now.

“I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me,” she said.

She said that her time with Booker forced her to be introspective and discover the truth about her sexuality, which made her comfortable about coming out as a lesbian.

“It’s the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do,” Dawson said. “If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there’s another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in [putting] a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter.”

Just last month, Dawson was still keeping up the facade with Booker after he announced that he suspended his presidential campaign.

“Cory, you continue to inspire me everyday,” Dawson tweeted at Booker after he announced his campaign was finished. “On this journey you and your remarkable team have represented the best in us and I know you will continue to. Thank you. I see you. I love you.”

Dawson and Booker began their relationship in early 2019 conveniently before presidential primary season was scheduled to begin, which fueled rumors that Dawson was Booker’s “beard,” a slang term for a woman who poses as a phony girlfriend or wife for a closeted homosexual. She kept awkwardly professing her love for Booker as “beard” rumors were persisting wildly over the internet and social media.

“I’m in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting,” Dawson said of Booker last year.

“Look, both of us, you know, we’ve had relationships,” Booker said of his lesbian Hollywood girlfriend, “but I’m not sure if I’ve ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable.”

“I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours,” he added. “I had trouble asking for her phone number… I think I said something really stupid like, ‘Uh, how would I get in touch with you?’ And she mercifully said something like, ‘Oh, you want my phone number?’ And my insides were like, ‘Hell, yeah!'”

Twitter users were not convinced by the show that the supposed lovers were putting on.

The fact that Dawson has come out as a lesbian, and presumably ended her reported relationship with Booker, shortly after the end of his presidential campaign will only add additional fuel to the rumors that have plagued Booker for decades.
