Brett Rushforth, the chair of the University of Oregon history department announced on Twitter that the department decided to stop teaching about Western civilization because they felt it encouraged “white supremacy”. Rushforth writes a long thread outlining his decision because apparently history is entire subjective, and also, Western civilization is racist, of course. The department has also apparently decided to not accept AP credit from high schools on the subject.
In his thread Rushforth claims “The obvious problems—what is “western” and who gets to count as being “civilized”—weren’t the only reasons to make the change. It was also about how white supremacists have embraced the notion of western civilization to make racist claims about non-European people.”

So apparently because White Supremacists are well… white, we shouldn’t teach history about white people because it might make white people feel too proud, and as liberals have said, having pride in your ethnicity leads to hateful ideology (if you’re white). Cultural Marxism depends on revisionist history because liberalism can not survive in a world of real facts. Rushforth is merely a product of the Marxist academic machine the Left has created. The University surely won’t stop teaching any other ethno-centric studies I’m sure because that wouldn’t be progressive.
The fact that we pay top dollar in this country for our children to be indoctrinated into self hatred, and even worse, shamed for their skin color by academia itself is abhorrent and needs to end immediately. The fact that school administrators are patting eachother on the back for such a regressive and insane move is beyond comprehension and truly makes me lose faith in our academic culture. But liberalism in 2019 has decided that the achievements of Western civilization are racist.
