We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"the norms of neoliberal higher education” – specifically, expectations of punctuality and academic competence – are both racist and oppressive."
Not only is this one of the stupidest things I've heard lately but it also seems to unintentionally smear the exact gender and race groups he intended to prop up. Just imagine the outrage if a white male said that minority professors are not as intelligent/capable as non-minorities and by the way they don't operate on white folks time.
