The ‘I’m Going to Be Sorry’ Meme That Is Being Used by Anti-Trump Students
Posted On July 16, 2021
I’m going to be sorry for the way I treated my students last week.
When I walked into the classroom and told my students that President Donald Trump is now in office, it was like an episode of Mad Men, except for the fact that he was wearing a tie.
I felt a sense of anger.
The anger was coming from a place I had never felt before.
I was not a political science professor.
I had taught for seven years, with the sole purpose of providing students with a solid foundation in the sciences.
I was not particularly familiar with the concept of “political correctness” or the way that some in the academy have tried to shut down discussion of social justice and racial equality.
But I did not think that it was a bad thing to have a discussion about this topic, or that I would be punished for it.
The president has had a long career in politics.
I have taught at many of the most prestigious universities in the United States.
I am not going to hold myself out as some kind of “liberal professor” when I say that I am appalled by the behavior of some of the people who I teach to.
But it is important to remember that this is not the first time that the president has offended me.
This past week, I taught a class on the history of slavery, and while the class was meant to discuss slavery in the US, some of my students took issue with a line I wrote about slavery in America.
They took issue that I was using “white” as a racial epithet.
That line said, “the only thing that made slavery tolerable in America was the fact they were white.”
That line is a direct attack on the white working class, who was forced into slavery.
This is a classic example of “I’m going be sorry,” a phrase that is used by white people who feel victimized and ashamed by their actions and have no right to defend themselves.
The idea that I should feel sorry for my students for being white is a typical example of the kind of racism and bigotry that is on display at some of these colleges and universities.
It’s a bit of a sad irony that I teach in a place where I know of students who were forced into internships with people who were “anti-white.”
I don’t know if there is any way to explain it, but the more I think about it, the more that I realize that I’ve become a victim of my own behavior.
I’ve taught for so long that I know what racism looks like, and I’ve been able to teach a class about race, but I have never been able and will never be able to explain how my behavior has led me to become a person who has been hurt and angry over the course of my life.
I’m not even sure I understand how racism works.
But the fact remains that I have been attacked, harassed, and humiliated by some of those students who have been in my classes over the years.
That doesn’t excuse what they have done, or how they feel about what I have done.
Some of the students have said that I’m a “white professor.”
I don’t agree with that characterization.
I think that they are talking about a group of students, including me, who are white.
But the fact is that I do not know whether they actually are.
My experience has taught me that there are people out there who will do anything to hurt me, to humiliate me, or to even assault me.
The last thing I want to do is encourage anyone to do anything I have experienced.
But there is something that we need to understand when it comes to “political” correctness: the difference between “political,” and “offensive.”
The latter is used to silence speech that has nothing to do with politics or the Constitution.
“Political correctness” is a catch-all term that is commonly used by those who want to silence anyone who they perceive to be “politically incorrect.”
Political correctness is a term that covers everything from the use of “microaggressions” to the way we use pronouns in public.
It’s a term used by people who want you to be silent when you disagree with them.
I use the term “political.”
But I also have students who use it in a very different way.
Some of the things that they say and do have nothing to with politics.
They are simply inappropriate.
I don, too, use the word “political science” because I have students at my school who use that word.
And I have other students who say things that I find offensive, like “political class” and “white privilege.”
The word “white,” “liberal,” and the phrase “white supremacy” have been used to describe the ideology of the alt-right and the right wing.
We live in a time in which
