Diversity Officer - Minority Women Can't Be Racist

It's very important our universities are filled with such people.

After all, what did British scholars ever contribute before this?

The Parasite Class in action.
A Goldsmiths University diversity officer who has faced accusations of racism after banning white people from an event has struck back with a bold claim: It’s literally impossible for a minority woman like herself to be racist.

Bahar Mustafa, a student who also serves as a welfare and diversity officer at the U.K.’s Goldsmiths, attracted widespread attention and condemnation several weeks ago when she planned an event on “diversifying” the school’s curriculum — and asked that white people and men not attend.

“If you’ve been invited and you’re a man and/or white PLEASE DON’T COME just cos I invited a bunch of people and hope you will be responsible enough to respect this is a BME [Black and Minority Ethnic] Women and non-binary event only,” she said at the time. She later posted a photo of herself wiping away fake tears near a sign reading “NO White Cis Men Please.”

One of the greatest pieces of political advice I ever heard was, "If a politician or administrator tells you something, ask yourself, 'How does it benefit this person if I believe it?'"

Here, we have someone who enjoys a position at a Western university, where she provides no services or products that actually improve the United Kingdom or help the economy. She is simply a rent seeker, working a "job" that any other generation would say shouldn't even exist. She is generously subsidized by the very people she hates. Her existence does nothing but degrade the society in which she lives. And yet, this incredibly privileged person is in the position of lecturing British males they cannot attend a meeting on the curriculum at a British university.

We see this all the time, when people who enjoy official status and power lecture on the supposed "privileges" enjoyed by white males. Tenure, set-asides, government preferences, huge salaries, low work requirements, and immunity from criticism, we are told, do not constitute privilege. However, the assertion of an "invisible knapsack" of unquantifiable and unfalsifiable benefits justify any and all actions taken against Europeans.

As you can tell her from her picture, Ms. Mustafa could pass for white if it was to her advantage. But it is not. Victimization is, above all else, an economic strategy, and these kinds of programs in the university are designed to create "safe spaces" not so much for minorities, but for rent seekers to acquire resources without facing criticism, cutbacks, or having to produce anything.  The very existence of Ms. Mustafa constitutes proof that the social and economic system of the United Kingdom requires radical reform.

There's a quote misattributed to Voltaire that goes, "If you want to know who rules over you, ask yourself who you are not allowed to criticize." We might rephrase it as, "If you want to know who is truly privileged in a society, ask yourself who is lecturing you about privilege."
