Why do some in the media seem to believe conservatives are white supremacists?
In the case of an instructor at Mississippi State University, it may be because that’s what they’re taught.
The school’s Young America’s Foundation chapter recently held an event about border security.
As per YAF, the purpose of the get-together was to “drive discussion on border security and President Trump’s proposal for a border wall to stem the flow of illegal immigrants.”
But not to Journalism Ethics professor Ryan Phillips. He tweeted about it:
“Hey the White Male Student Caucus holding a gathering. Hoods and burning crosses optional https://t.co/93d58A1dGD”

And that’s called “academia.”
Here’s the 6-second video to which he linked:

One student responded thusly:
Thank you for assuming that I’m a white male! You’re welcome to come to the table next time and not base your opinion off of one video on twitter.

MSU’s YAF founding chairman was less indirect:
You made an ignorant judgement without speaking with a single representative for the group, in fact not 1 single member said they were against LEGAL immigration, and you decided to slander us without any concern for truth.

So take note: Anyone wanting to discuss a border wall is a male white supremacist.
I know of one; I’m not sure how he felt about a wall, but his thoughts on illegal immigration were crystal clear.
Ladies and gentleman, I give you a Grand Dragon:
I wonder if the professor shows that to his students. That’s the would-be First Gentleman of the United States. Ryan must be so glad she lost.
Especially since we’d already had this guy, who’s half white:
I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. #SOTU

Some public education systems aren’t waiting for young skulls of mush to reach college instructors like Ryan. Start ’em early, start ’em right:
