Abolishing Whiteness at Hunter College

"Where the hell is Hunter College?"

It has come to this: Hunter College (that's in New York for all you UC Santa Cruz community studies majors) now is offering a course in "Abolishing Whiteness". And here's the good news: It may soon satisfy the little rascals' requirement for Diversity.

"The course, taught by Women and Gender Studies Professor Jennifer Gaboury, is cross-listed for both her department and the Political Science Department, where it fulfills one of four required courses in the “4 subfields of political science” under the umbrella of POLSC 204: Contemporary Issues in Political Theory."

This isn't about abolishing whiteness. This is about abolishing education. Think what a diploma from this institution is worth.

Having recently gone to NYC for a Hunter College commencement, I have a pretty good sense that a degree from the institution is still worth something, although this course on one's c.v. might be considered a cause for concern about a job applicant's sanity.
