Harvard Students Can Now Earn Yet Another Useless Degree: Social Justice Certificate

Published

on

Colleges and universities these days have become notorious for offering ridiculous and utterly useless degree programs to gullible left-wing students eager to throw away thousands of dollars on a piece of paper that will be of no value in the job market.

Programs like women studies, gender studies, and now, thanks to Harvard, a “social justice certificate.”

Good luck chatting to a job recruiter about your education experience and mentioning you have a degree in social justice.

This “certificate” is being given out by Harvard Extension School for students who take 16 credit hours in courses related to the topic of social justice.

The recently launched certificate allows students to take classes such as “Chocolate, Culture, and the Politics of Food,” “The Culture of Capitalism,” and “Storytelling and Global Justice” for credit, and Harvard stresses that courses taken prior to the 2016–17 academic year “do not apply toward this certificate.”

Other classes in the program include “The Minimum Wage Debate,” “The Politics of Religion in Liberal Democracies,” and “Readings in Black Radicalism”—a class dedicated to exploring readings on topics such as black Marxism, black feminism, and reparations.

“Through this liberal arts graduate certificate, you’ll learn about core themes of social justice, including philosophy, economics, the environment, religion, politics, ethics, sociology, and law,” the university explains on its website.

The curricula for the social justice program is built around economic and other policy issues rather than around the concepts of oppression, privilege, and so on.

While there aren’t any specific classes that have become requirements, the school is trying to encourage students to takes classes on “human rights, affirmative action, income distribution, education, government,” and many, many other topics.

There’s no GRE score requirement for admission into the program or courses, and the Harvard Extension School website simply encourages those interested in the classes to sign up and attend.

Some of the courses are available to be counted as electives for those who are going to get a master’s degree and have already earned their bachelor’s.

This program isn’t even a degree and will essentially get students nowhere when it comes time to hit the job market after graduation. It’s nothing more than an additional indoctrination tool to help progressives seal the deal on creating a future generation of individuals loyal to the state.

Trouble In Paradise? Ilhan Omar Just Got Super Bad News About Her District

Uh, oh Spaghetti-Os!

Published

on

No one’s favorite congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has earned a reputation as an anti-Semite for her negative comments toward Israel and Jewish people, just got some very bad news about her district. According to a new report from financial website, 24/7 Wall Street, Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District is the worst congressional district in the entire country for black people. Uh oh. That’s not going to look too good on the progressive candidate checklist, is it? via TheBlaze: Researchers studied several key metrics using data from the U.S. Census Bureau: cost of living-adjusted median household income, unemployment and poverty rates, educational attainment, and homeownership rates. The data showed that Omar’s district has the greatest socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans of any congressional district in the U.S. “Black area residents are about four times more likely to live below the poverty line than white residents and three times more likely to be unemployed. Disparate outcomes along racial lines in the district are largely the legacy of historic racism,” the study said. “Minneapolis is one of several Midwestern cities that enacted restrictive housing covenants and exclusionary zoning policies in the early 20th century. These policies impact residential patterns to this day.” Here’s the real kicker that’ll send liberals into hysterics. Each of the five worst districts for black Americans is represented by a Democrat. It actually gets worse than that. As it turns out, 25 out of 30 the worst congressional districts for blacks are run by liberals. Ouch. That pretty much explodes the narrative that Democrats are the party of the poor and marginalized, doesn’t it? Adding insult to injury, the vast majority of the nation’s most segregated cities are located within these districts. So, tell us again, Mr. Liberal, why in the world would we want you to…

Mayor Gets Pulverized After Posting Ridiculously Thoughtless Tweet In Wake Of Portland Violence

Oh look. Nero playing the fiddle why Rome burns.

Published

Just hours after violent rioting exploded in the city of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler posted the most oblivious photograph ever to the Internet, featuring him and his wife, peacefully strolling through the city hand-in-hand as if nothing is going down in his burned out burg. This has led to massive pushback from folks all across the political spectrum, with many calling for Wheeler to step down from office. Honestly, that might not be a bad idea, seeing as how he’s done nothing to put radical left-wing group Antifa in check. via Daily Wire: https://twitter.com/tedwheeler/status/1163209418487394305 “Saturdays in Portland,” however, are a lot different. The day before Mayor Ted Wheeler’s post, Antifa activists targeted journalists and went after protesters, some of whom were members of the right-wing Proud Boys. Below is some of the ugly footage posted by journalist and Quilette editor Andy Ngo and others which has been conveniently ignored by Mr. Wheeler: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162901699318517761 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162828409367515139 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162844384141832192 The tweet from Mayor Wheeler, unsurprisingly, was ripped online for its oblivious nature. Twitter users, some claiming to live in Portland, pointed to the violent protesting in the city and Portland’s severe homelessness crisis. According to Portland Monthly, 2018 figures estimated 14,476 homeless people reside in the city. https://twitter.com/JNCassavetes/status/1163279121847222272 https://twitter.com/jtLOL/status/1163428604581220354 https://twitter.com/RedTails944/status/1163305483018465281 https://twitter.com/NeilAxelrod/status/1163309474125361152 https://twitter.com/belleofva/status/1163227272930873345 Seems Mayor Wheeler is just a tad bit out of touch with what’s happening in his city. Homelessness, massive violence and rioting, civil unrest. Hardly seems like an ideal time to post a picture of a peaceful stroll through the city. It’s like Nero watching Rome burn and playing the fiddle. The city could definitely use new leadership, perhaps someone with a more sensible approach to dealing with this sort of thing?
