Professor decries 'white privilege' but knocks blacks and Hispanics, too

George Washington prayingA university professor is singing a familiar tune that has become common place on a college campus: slavery, genocide, and colonialism are the results of “white Christian privilege.”

Speaking at Rutgers University on Sept. 9, Fairleigh Dickinson University professor Khyati Joshi told her audience that Christianity had a role in the construction of "whiteness," The College Fix reported. 

College students have endured similar far-left, anti-Western rants for generations but Johshi, an education professor, railed against Christianity itself during an hour-long presentation, The College Fix reported.

“We have to also take into account the Biblical justification for slavery,” Joshi said, apparently failing to mention how slavery has been part of civilization going back thousands of years.

The professor, who is Hindu, went on to suggest that black Christians also have “Christian privilege,” and so do Hispanic Catholics, but she stressed that “white Christian supremacy” is really the main problem. 

Matt Lamb of The College Fix says her arguments reflect a tiresome rehash of far-left dogma.

“It's very interesting that she just kind of ignored examples that would have contradicted her own view, which is poor scholarship,” he says, “because you're always supposed to kind of say, Well, this may be some counter-examples but here is why I'm so right."

The professor failed to do that, he adds, but her approving audience failed to push back on the one-sided claims because they agree with her. 

The extensive biography for Professor Joshi describes her as a “public intellectual” who has “lectured around the world” on issues of race, religion, and immigration.
