Missouri University has become a sad example of what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum. Social justice warriors have effectively taken control of the school and continue to issue harmful edicts based on political correctness.
The diversity office at the University of Missouri (yes, it is an actual office) has released a handout telling students what they can say and not say. The school is so afraid of potentially hurting anyone’s feelings that they demand public censorship and bans of harmless phrases. According to Campus Reform, the handout is titled “Can We Talk Microaggressions in Every Day Life.”
“Microaggression” is a term created by a professor at Columbia university to refer to and perceived slight or insult towards a person. The term is better described as a word thrown at a person whom says something that you may not like to hear or says something that you don’t agree with.
On the handout the University declares that complimenting people with disabilities is a microaggression and a major no no. According to the sheet you shouldn’t tell them that they “are so inspiring” and if you are non-disabled you shouldn’t help a disabled person because it implies that they cannot do things on their own.
The handout also says that not being racist is in fact actually racist. They say that when someone says “When I look at you, I don’t see color”, that person is denying that person their ethnic and racial experience and attempting to force them to assimilate into the “dominant white culture.”
I can’t make this stuff up. The University of Missouri is actively preaching segregation by demanding that people see and recognize the color of a persons skin instead of just treating everyone the same. The university would also rather that a handicapped person struggle on their own than risk someone helping them or offering a word of kindness.
