UK: Students Who Avoid Eye Contact “Guilty of Racism”?

Students who avoid making eye contact with their peers could be guilty of racism, according to Oxford University’s latest guidance.

What Dr. Williams fails to note: This insane attempt at mind control is a direct result of two things; 1) having a multiracial society in the first place, and 2) allowing Jews to control and set the tone in our institutions.

THE UNIVERSITY’S Equality and Diversity Unit has advised students that “not speaking directly to people” could be deemed a “racial microaggression” which can lead to “mental ill-health”.

Other examples of “everyday racism” include asking someone where they are “originally” from, students were told.

Oxford University’s Equality and Diversity Unit explains in its Trinity term newsletter that “some people who do these things may be entirely well-meaning, and would be mortified to realise that they had caused offence.

“But this is of little consequence if a possible effect of their words or actions is to suggest to people that they may fulfil a negative stereotype, or do not belong”.

Universities have been accused of pandering to the “snowflake generation” of students, who are seen as over-sensitive and quick to take offence.

Dr Joanna Williams, a lecturer in higher education the University of Kent, said the guidance was “completely ridiculous” and will make students “hyper-sensitive” about how they interact with one another.

“Essentially people are being accused of a thought crime,” Dr Williams told The Telegraph. “They are being accused of thinking incorrect thoughts based on an assumption of where they may or may not be looking.”

Dr Williams, who is author of Academic Freedom in an Age of Conformity, said that Oxford University’s guidance was “overstepping the mark” by telling students “how they should feel and think”.

She said: “Instead of people seeing each other as potential friends, equals, these re-racialise academia, they force people to see each other as a person of colour, they force people to be put into boxes about identity.

“It is really problematic — it means people can’t relate to each other naturally, they have rules in the back of their mind and they can’t be spontaneous as their interactions are all overlaid with the desire to follow all these rules.”

Last year Oxford law students were told they could skip lectures covering violent cases if they feared the content would be too “distressing”.

Earlier this year it emerged that Cardiff Metropolitan University banned phrases such as “right-hand man” and “gentleman’s agreement” under its code of practice on inclusive language.

The university guidance dictates that “gender-neutral” terms should be used where possible, adding that students should not allow their “cultural background” to affect their choice of words.

The University of Glasgow has started issuing “trigger warnings” for theology students studying the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, whereby students are told they may see distressing images and are given the opportunity to leave.

The term “snowflake generation” was one of Collins Dictionary’s 2016 words of the year. Collins defines the term as “the young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations”.

An Oxford University spokesman said: “The Equality and Diversity Unit works with University bodies to ensure that the University’s pursuit of excellence goes hand in hand with freedom from discrimination and equality of opportunity. The newsletter is one way of advising and supporting staff towards achieving these aims.”

    It is most telling, not only about how long a religion has been around but how much its believers have been historically persecuted, when tragedy seems repeatedly to befall it on the same calendar day throughout its existence. Known as the “9th Day of Av,” it is considered the saddest day of each year for Judaism and a day always destined for tragedy.

    Judaism commemorates the 9th Day of Av with a day of fasting. The date is based on the Hebrew calendar and, as such, falls on different dates of the Western calendar. This year, it is observed from nightfall on July 21 through nightfall on July 22.

    While Judaism is not the oldest world religion, it is the foundation for all other Abrahamic religions. It can also claim the title of being the oldest monotheism still practiced today.

    The suffering that has plagued the Jewish people on one common date seems endless. For example, what today is known as the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, built by the Jews, was destroyed on this date in 586 B.C. by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. This resulted in the massacre of 100,000 Jews and a massive national exile. The destruction of the First Temple led to the Jews rebuilding it later in that century. The rebuild, known as the Second Temple, also was subsequently destroyed, on the exact same date as the First – only 655 years later, at the hands of Titus of Rome.

    Former Israeli Ambassador Yoram Ettinger notes some of the other calamities befalling the Jews on the same date: the execution of ten of their leading rabbis by the Roman Empire, the defeat of the Bar Kokhbah Revolt by Roman Emperor Adrianus, the massacre of tens of thousands of Jews in Europe during the pogroms of the First Crusade (1096-1099), the Jewish expulsion from Britain (1290) and from Spain (1492), the start of World War I (1914) and the start of deportations of Warsaw Ghetto Jews to the Treblinka extermination camp (1942).

    The burden of persecution and suffering the Jewish people have historically endured shows no signs of being alleviated in a 21st century world. While they have suffered and survived the most brutal of pogroms and the Nazi Holocaust, they are now fleeing Europe from places like France in record numbers, fearing how far an increasing Muslim immigrant population will take its anti-Semitic ideology.

    Rarely will Friday prayers at a mosque in a Western country not include denigration of the Jews. Several imams in U.S. mosques have spewed forth such hatred as well. Often quoted by them is the infamous hadith of the fate to befall all Jews on the Day of Judgment:

    “The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”

    – Sahih Muslim, 41:6985

    As outrageous and ludicrous as this teaching is, Muslims are encouraged to believe even the trees and stones will ally with them to eradicate the Jews on Judgment Day.

    One would hope, at least in America today, Jews could find safe harbor, free from persecution. Yet the FBI reports they, and not Muslims who doggedly seek to claim mass victimization, are repeatedly the single largest victim group of hate crimes in the U.S. (A 2015 FBI report indicates while only 16 percent of hate crimes targeted Muslims, a whopping 58 percent targeted Jews.)

    Deuteronomy 7:6 in the Bible reveals of Jews, “For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” As the 9th Day of Av shows us, the Jewish people certainly have paid a high price, and sadly continue to pay a high price, for being so chosen.

    This is sick; it first of all is exaggerated and more perversely is totally without any attempt to consider why some calamities happened. As though Jews did nothing to bring on such events. As though Jews had not committed any massacres themselves, that is not what I have read about in some annals of ancient history. Was there not a massacre of the people of Cyprus by the Jews? killing some odd 200,000 people in just a few days in ancient times. The Jewish narrative of all their interactions with non-Jews in all remarkable events; is such that the Jews are totally without fault! Judaism, to me, is mass megalomania; these people are in a perpetual ego trip, that they feel they are one-hundred percent entitled to.

      “…these people are in a perpetual ego trip, that they feel they are one-hundred percent entitled to.”

      Just like:
      Muslims
      Blacks
      Gays
      Trans/ this and that
      Mestizos
      Feminists
      Paedos
      LGBT’s/whatever
      Snowflakes
      Antifa
      ….all clamoring to overthrow the ‘White Male Patriarchy’ while they simultaneously soak up the benefits of living in just such a society. The housecleaning that Nature demands cannot be stated here.
