    Right-wing writers love to spew inflammatory ishonest distortions here about racial issues.

    "...who was asked to leave campus because he was white."
    --Joe Shmo

    Really? Are there any white professors remaining at this college?
    Were all white professors asked to leave or just this one, supposedly?
    And if just this one, could there not be another reason beside his whiteness that he was singled out?

    "Student protests about race boiled over in late May, attracting national attention, when video
    of students of color shouting at a professor, the college president and other school officials went viral.

    Student protesters were upset about racism on campus and said on social media that police
    had responded too aggressively to their peaceful demonstration. But the protests quickly
    became a symbol nationally for people who saw them as further evidence that college campuses
    have been overtaken by liberal extremists unwilling to listen to opposing viewpoints.

    As at many colleges, racial tensions had been simmering all year. They boiled over after a white professor
    objected to a request by a school official that white people avoid campus on a day of symbolic protest."

    "Over the weekend, the school’s board of trustees decried “the lack of tolerance and
    respect” displayed by some students during the protests in May, calling it indefensible....
    Dozens of faculty members signed a document expressing solidarity with the student
    protesters and pledging to work to improve race relations on campus."

    This story seems much more complex and nuanced than Joe Shmo's biased framing
    of it in implicitly arguing that white men are the most oppressed group in the USA.

    Yeah, I didn't see a quote in this article from anybody's brother.

    Perhaps you could just tell us the quote that has you all up in arms?

    Maybe then you might like to somehow link it back to this story?

    Joe Shmo's troll post seems to be his attempt to incite his fellow terribly oppressed
    white men in the USA to join together, rise up, and break free of their chains! (sarcasm intended)

    Who holds the 'Whites for Trump' signs in the adoring crowds at Donald Trump's rallies?
