Next up in our cavalcade of woke lunacy is a Norwegian university which is saying that white paint is “racist.” Why do these woke lunatics earn any legitimacy at all?
A $1.2 million government grant at Norway’s University of Bergen is looking onto whether white paint is racist, according to The College Fix.
The claim is that it is “white supremacy” to allow the color white to remain a primary color.
Per the site:
The study examines the titanium white pigment via “historical, aesthetic, and critical lenses. Whiteness, it says, typically “is understood as cultural and visual structures of privilege,” but NorWhite offers “a distinctively different battleground for politics of whiteness in art and architecture.”
A December announcement for NorWhite study fellowships noted the research will inquire whether titanium white “not only led to an aesthetic desire for white surfaces, but was also connected to racist attitudes.”
“The appointed scholar will investigate how representations of national identity are linked to art, architecture, and visual culture from 1850 to the present, with an emphasis on recent art history (1850 – today),” the announcement reads. “Relevant topics can be national identity building, industrialization, modernization, aesthetics and technology, color theory (white color), and postcolonial theory.”
More absolute nonsense education dollars are being wasted on, folks.
This is what passes for intelligent thought in our world-wide system of miseducation.
It really is a complete joke.Commentary
