A PC loving college dean from Yale, considered to be a champion of “diversity” and “cultural sensitivity” was recently placed on leave after calling folks on Yelp “white trash” and “barely educated morons.”Because nothing says tolerance and cultural sensitivity like bashing someone for the color of their skin, right?
According to a Heat Street report:The politically correct dean of Yale’s Pierson College apologized this weekend after screenshots of her trash-talking Yelp reviews began circulating amongst students.
Apparently Dean June Chu is a champion of diversity and “cultural sensitivity,” except when she goes to crappy restaurants. She referred to customers as “white trash” and “low class folks” and to some employees as “barely educated morons.”
According to Chu’s professor profile page, the psychology professor “has sought to help students not only succeed academically but to support their holistic academic experience and multifaceted identities.”But the common themes of her Yelp reviews is that she thinks New Haven, the Connecticut city where Yale is based, is a total shithole that’s she’s way too good for and she somehow gets poor costumer service everywhere that has nothing to do with her own attitude.
In one review she praised a local movie theater for “not having sketchy crowds (despite being in New Haven).” For context, economically depressed New Haven is 62 percent black and Hispanic.
“If you are white trash, this is the perfect night out for you!” Chu wrote about a Japanese restaurant. She also said a store that sells mochi would only be good to a “white person who has no clue what mochi is.”“Good lord talk about idiocy and incompetence. Why the hell in this day and age would there be no separate line for just tickets? So what they have is barely educated morons trying to manage snack orders for the obese and also try to add $7 plus $7.”
Students at the university were made aware of the reviews after Chu sent out an email stating she was “Yelp Elite” due to writing so much on the site.
Chu sent out an apology letter to all Pierson students stating:“I have learned a lot this semester about the power of words and about the accountability that we owe one another,” Chu wrote. “My remarks were wrong. There are no two ways about it. Not only were they insensitive in matters related to class and race; they demean the values to which I hold myself and which I offer as a member of this community.”
Pretty awful behavior for someone who is supposed to be an example for impressionable young people in the world of academia.
If you’re going to claim to be a fan of diversity and “tolerance,” you better practice what you preach, otherwise no one in their right mind will take you seriously.
Oh, and it can also get you booted from your job, so there’s that to think about as well.
There’s no doubt a racial divide exists in America, one that’s been perpetuated by the narrative of the left, and the only way to tackle such an issue is by denouncing it in all of its forms.
We need to be spending time playing up our shared humanity and downplaying arbitrary aspects of our identity, like skin color.
Until that happens, you’ll just keep getting more hypocrites like Chu.
