University agrees that black students should be graded differently

And the university thinks it is a good idea: It is currently advising professors to pass black students on the basis of race after an online petition gathered more than 26 000 signatures.

“You need to encourage and demand professors to accommodate their black students during this time. If UW truly understands our pain, UW will be a part of alleviating it,” the petition states.

Nicole McNichols, UW Psychology Professor told Campus Reform that she supported the move. “Obviously, I support the petition and absolutely believe the accommodations it requests should be honored by all faculty. Students need all of the support and compassion we can afford to give them right now.”

The email sent by McNichols to her students reads: “First, the remaining homework chapters are being put into review mode. Everyone will receive full points. Second, I have decided to drop everyone’s lowest exam score. This means that you may opt-out of taking Exam 3 if you just don’t feel up to it, (or if you [are] happy with your scores from exam 1 and 2).”

Currahee!

As a retired college professor.......I have no words for this “educated” idiot.....I bet Ms. McNichols numbers on “Rate My Professor” are through the roof.....her students must luuuuuve her.....I cannot imagine how a white, straight, male, veteran would fare in her class.....too much privilege....talk about her students pain.....

I truly am gobsmacked.....and am very sad.....I have seen this coming for several decades.....and was powerless to stop it.....the Socratic method is dead in many classrooms.....High School, College and University........replaced by those minions of Josef Goebbels who propagandize their students rather than teach them.....they use history books written by the likes of socialist Howard Zinn who focused on “bad” America.....

Going to many historical conferences, I sometimes felt like a member of the “White Rose” in Munich.....just before the blade came down.

Why do students need support and compassion right now?  Because they're disappointed they all can't join the riots to get a new flat screen and some choice new goodies to wear?

What idiotic horsesh*t!

Note to self: Never hire anyone who graduated from Idiots University.

Ahhh. The soft bigotry of low expectations. You can’t handle your life or current events so we will give you “grade welfare”. This should really help them succeed in a real world setting 🙄(not including government jobs - they are the worst about this kind of crap and coddling/pandering).

So, the university is outright admitting that they believe that black students are too stupid and inept to conform to the same standards that everyone else has to?

 

Isn't that special? :huh:

It's like this everywhere else for other things.

Where I work, the black employees are allowed to sit around on their lazy asses and not have to do a damned thing vs the white employees. Just so long as they simply show up on time, wear their PPE nobody can say a word to them about not doing their assigned tasks at all. They are not even required to hit a lick all day and most of them do not (not all, because we do have a few who are very talented and do work very hard). Oh, we do have a few lazy worthless white people that do the same only because they are high up union thugs and former military. As much as I hate saying this, the most lazy employees that we have are all former military. They are considered untouchable and are entitled to get paid just to show up and do nothing.

Even more insidious is they're crippling the futures of their students.

Here we go again.

All this does is make sensible people avoid hiring blacks, going to black doctors or other professionals, etc, because we have no way of knowing whether they actually studied and learned their trade legitimately, or just got their "passing grade" due to their skin color.

It's the dumbing down of our society. Intentionally of course. Common knowledge is not so common anymore.

If you insist on lowering the standards, then you have no right to complain when you're looking for excellence, but find yourself surrounded by mediocrity. Or worse.

Keeping the masses ignorant and manageable has always been the goal of leftists.

In your mind, it's reasonable to question the capability of any and all black professionals in America because of one Change.Org petition posted by a student group from the University of Washington?

*sigh*

As usual you just don't get it. Since we'll have no way of knowing which black students actually earned their passing grades and which didn't, ALL must be held in suspicion. Now if all those whose "passing grades" were based on their skin color had a great big tattoo on their forehead declaring "I ONLY PASSED BECAUSE I'M BLACK" that would be fine; all the others wouldn't have to be suspect.

It's like this, T_G: If there was a large bowl of, say, M&Ms, and you knew ONE of them was poisoned, would you eat ANY of them? Of course you wouldn't unless you were extraordinarily stupid (or suicidal.) And so it is with the sort of stupidity described in the opening article. If we know that some black professionals got their passing grades purely because of their skin color, and not because they actually earned it, it would be extraordinarily stupid to hire any black professional.

Don't worry, LOL, I know you far too well to expect you to be honest about this.

Little bit more than an online petition.

And the university thinks it is a good idea: It is currently advising professors to pass black students on the basis of race

LOL. Well as I already said, I knew you were pathologically incapable of approaching anything honestly.

But I'm delighted you're having so much fun with the new word your mommy bought you!

By today's woke standards, MLK was a race traitor, and indeed, a racist himself

heck, if all white people can be considered racist, having accomplished nothing because of the leg up offered by their 'white privilege', why not?
