    ‘American Political Thought’ course at CU Denver removes all white men from curriculum

    I can clearly recall the first day of class a few semesters ago when I eagerly began a course called “American Political Thought” at the University of Colorado, Denver.

    My excitement quickly soured, however, after Professor Chad Shomura explained to the students in the room that most traditional “American Political Thought” courses are too focused on the achievements of white men.

    As a consequence, he told us he had removed every single white male and their theoretical perspectives from the entire course curriculum.

    This is echoed in the syllabus:

    “This course aims to develop an understanding of American political life from the margins. Rather than surveying traditional figures of American political thought, it attends to historically marginalized voices at the crossings of race, gender, sexuality, and nation. It explores issues such as intersectionality, antiblack racism and the American Dream, ordinary life, borderlands and migration, public feelings, mental health, and settler colonialism. The materials we examine also exceed the usual genres of American Political Thought. They include, among other things, poems, an ethnography, academic articles, a novel, and a hacked tarot card set.”

    So, basically, it's a study of losers, dead-ends, marginal bit-players, and shit that went nowhere except the Black history reading list at universities. They'll finish the course without having learned anything much at all about people and ideas that actually prevailed and shaped 'American political thought' in the real world outcomes.

    And they will have pissed away several thousand dollars of student loan money to attend.
