Next on the list of “What’s Racist This Week,” leftists are now telling us that dog names are raaaaacit.
Why anyone takes these halfwits seriously is anyone’s guess.
University pinheads are celebrating the new slant on dogs by claiming that many names people give their animals are racist and evidence of white privilege. And a study set out to prove this by finding that dogs with “black” names didn’t get adopted at a shelter as fast as dogs with “white” names.
The study, authored in part by professional racebaiter Natasha Quadlin, set out to ask “When shelter dogs have racialized names, what happens to their adoption outcomes?”

From there, as Campus Reform reported, one professor after another was thrilled to see this “cool” and “fascinating” study and jumped on the tweet to heap praise on the authors… even though none of them read the study.

And on and on it went.
Notice that all these academics simply assumed this must be all perfectly correct even though this was just one shelter. Even though the “study” wasn’t replicated in different neighborhoods, during different times of the year, or across several states.
No, the fact that someone cried RAAAACISM, that was enough for them to simply assume it had to be foolproof.Commentary
