PEOPLE OF COLOR AT YALE, by Roger Kimball

“Of all bogus politically correct phrases, I think “people of color” is the most reliably emetic.

Who gets to be a “person of color”? Not me, apparently, though I like to think of myself as a pleasing pinkish hue (I’m  not talking about political complexion, merely my Crayola designation). To me, “people of color” is a bit like “native American,” only worse.  I always identify myself as “native American” because (or so I have been reliably assured) I first came into this world just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, than which no more American place can be imagined.  Why do American Indians get to be “native Americans” while I, whose natality was smack dab in the middle of America, must be content who some less privileged rubric?  And why do Blacks and other assorted ethnicities get to be “people of color,” with all the spurious rights and privileges pertaining thereto, while I, who most certainly possess a color, am left out of the great politically correct grievance mongering sweepstakes?

I thought about this yesterday I was in New Haven participating in a conference on “The Future of Free Speech” sponsored by the William F. Buckley Jr. Program at Yale. No sooner had I and my colleagues arrived in Elm City than we discovered, courtesy the Yale Daily News, that the delicate snowflakes at one of the richest and most coddled institutions in the world were angry, outraged, tearful, absolutely beside themselves with rage and horror. “Students Demand Admin Response to Racial Controversies,” screamed the front-page headline. The story went on to describe a 3-hour confrontation between 200 students and Jonathan Holloway, Dean of Yale College. “Surrounded by a sea of upturned faces and fighting back tears,” the story began, Dean Holloway “stood on the Women’s Table [nice touch!]. . .  to break the administration’s silence on allegations of racial discrimination that  shook [shook!] campus this week.” [UPDATE: Why hasn’t this girl been expelled?]……..”   (Please read on:)
