Clemson course light on history, heavy on a race war

Black Lives Matter protest in PhillyA professor and her controversial U.S. history course at Clemson University have been exposed by a conservative student who did some digging.  

Clemson senior Stone Washington, a member of the black leadership group Project 21, wrote a College Fix article describing how Black Lives Matter and books such as "White Rage" dominate the History 1020 course that supposedly follows Americans from Reconstruction to the present day.

Washington tells OneNewsNow the basic history course sounds more like a left-wing political science course since it spends approximately three weeks on U.S. history and the remainder of the semester hammering social justice issues.

Other required reading for the course includes books "Making of Black Lives Matter," "Equality of Trial: Gender and Rights," and "How Race is Made in America." 

"And that kind of gave me a big question mark," he says, "as to how this is a history course and not a political science course."

He contacted Professor Maribel Morey about his concerns but says her response was vague and evasive.

"She just responded with a veiled answer saying that this is the way she has designed the course and if I was interested there were still spots (for) registration," he says. "But she really didn't answer my question at all." 

Washington did not sign up for the course because, as a senior, it's not required for graduation.
