Today I heard a statement made by a black, female Penn State University Professor concerning Dr. Ben Carson. Her statement was racist and full of hatred for a man of her own race. And when everyone is calling for her dismissal, she states that she can not be fired because she has tenure.
So, once again we see that if you have power (tenure), you can say publicly whatever disgusting thing you want to state! Another point that I find even more repulsive is that if my fellow, white or black, Southerner made the same statement; this Professor would probably be the first in line to throw stones and demand crucifixion! Her past statements lead me to this view-point.
Can power and money be so intoxicating, it will make you forget all of this is only temporary? And are we so numb as a society, that colleagues will turn a blind eye to the hateful actions of one of their own? Or is the PC police as frightening as the Nazi’s patrols were, thus keeping the truth hidden in the shadows?
How can we change a world, when the people in it are so resistant to getting along?
I do know the one great leveler of this world, which no one escapes, is death. When you die it will not matter how much money you had, nor power to lord over people. Your name, position, and wealth will cease to exist!
God will decide whether you treated all people with kindness, love, and understanding. God will decide if you helped to perpetuate hatred or stepped up to stop it. God will decide where you spend eternity!
And that should be the deciding factor for all of us.
The governing faculty at Penn State University should decide if by allowing racist slurs spout from their Professors, without appropriate disciplinary action; might decide their eternity. But unfortunately, it would take a large loss of funding and future student enrollment to open their eyes. For they are ruled by the political correctness of this world and not by God.
If one of my children was looking at Penn State University for college, they would have to take it off the table! For, what does a opinionated, closed-minded, politically correct Professor have to teach a child?
I believe they will only teach further hatred, which leads to even more degradation of our society!
And, if you have not looked around lately, that is the last thing we need!
