An upcoming science and technology symposium slated to take place at Williams College promises a unique feature: it will showcase “new” voices in the field, and those voices will only come from scholars of color.
We live in a time where upside down is considered to be right side up, and Liberals are working hard to prove that statement seven days a week, 365 days per year. Take ANTIFA for example, they claim to be an ‘anti-fascist‘ group who are ‘fighting Nazis‘, yet in reality are themselves a fascist group who use violence, threats and intimidation, like the real Nazis did, to promote their ‘anti-fascist’ message. We see something similar popping up on college campuses all across America as Liberal universities claim to be ‘fighting racism’ by being racist. Welcome to the new idiocy in higher learning.
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” Romans 1:22 (KJV)
American colleges and universities have become breeding grounds for anti-white hate on a level that, if you don’t watch the news or don’t have a kid in college, you are probably not aware of. Sites that are dedicated to keeping an eye on these things like Minding The Campus says “…although the most important thing in universities today is the diversity of race, gender, sexual practice, ethnicity, economic class, and physical and mental capability, there is no longer diversity of opinion. Only those committed to the ideology are admitted to academic staff or administration.”
Williams College is holding a ‘diversity forum’ to discuss changes in science in technology, but they don’t want any white people to part of their ‘diversity’. So you see, the Liberals are not really advocating for ending racism, they are advocating for being the racists. The story below comes from The College Fix, an excellent site run by student journalists to let you know what is really going on in our colleges.
Whites need not apply: Campus sci-tech symposium to only feature scholars of color
FROM THE COLLEGE FIX: “New Voices in Science and Technology Studies: A C3 Symposium,” set for early November at the private Massachusetts-based liberal arts university, invited scholars to submit papers if they represent a “historically underrepresented group.”
The call for papers specifies that means either “African Americans, Alaska Natives, Arab Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.”
Part of the application process asked applicants to write a couple sentences proving themselves as a member of a “historically underrepresented group.” Yet the application also provides an equal employment opportunity statement that people from all backgrounds are welcome.
The Science & Technology Studies Program at Williams College invites papers on any topic concerned with science and technology and their relationship to society for a day-long symposium showcasing the work of early-career scholars (ABD or recent PhD) from historically underrepresented groups. Individuals from underrepresented groups in the professoriate are specifically defined here as African Americans, Alaska Natives, Arab Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.
Chosen scholars will receive a $500 honorarium and be hosted by Williams College as they present their papers to the audience, organizers state, adding “we aim to create an inclusive, intellectually enriching experience for all involved, including the visiting speakers and the faculty and students of Williams.”
You’ve heard of safe spaces, trigger warnings and microaggressions. Steven B. Gerrard, a philosophy professor at Williams College, sees it culminating in something bigger: “the comfort college.”

Williams College Associate Professor of Political Science and Chair of Science and Technology Studies Laura Ephraim is the point of contact for the event. For the last three weeks she has ignored repeated phone calls and emails from The College Fix seeking comment on the event.
Williams College’s media affairs office and several faculty members in the Science and Technology Studies program at the school also ignored repeated requests for comment.
The only person at the college willing to return numerous requests for comment was an administrative assistant in Science and Technology Studies who said they were unsure who could help The College Fix with its questions.
Promotional materials for the symposium state: “The Science & Technology Studies Program at Williams College invites papers on any topic concerned with science and technology and their relationship to society for a day-long symposium showcasing the work of early-career scholars (ABD or recent PhD) from historically underrepresented groups.”
And so began Williams College’s annus horribilis, a year marked by protests, marches, threats and demands — everything but rational argument. A significant number of faculty not only supported this, but also instigated it. And the administration? Its response was to appoint a committee consisting of faculty, staff and students. Since “free speech” was now a dirty phrase, it was called “the Ad Hoc Committee on Inquiry and Inclusion.” The year pretty much went downhill from there.
As for the science and technology program at Williams, it is an interdisciplinary social sciences field, its website states.
“The Program in Science and Technology Studies (STS) aims to provide students with an interdisciplinary framework through which to appreciate the complex interactions between science, technology and society, and with which to analyze and understand the ways science and technology give shape to, and are in turn given shape by, society, culture and history,” the website states.
The program also works on “critical dialogue” issues.
“The STS Program furthermore serves as a forum in which students from all divisions are invited to partake in critical dialogue on a range of pressing issues: scientific controversies, expert knowledge, innovation and sociohistorical transformation, politics and policy, media and communication infrastructure, public understanding of science and technology, and philosophical questions,” according to its website.

‘You’re a racist,’ Williams College students tell author Christina Sommers
Author Christina Sommers spoke at Williams College on Oct. 19, 2017. The crowd let her speak, but some were critical during her question and answer period. Ms. Sommers crime? She’s white, and that is not popular at Williams College. Listen to how viciously these students attack her.
Professor Objects To No White People On Campus Demand
Bret Weinstein, professor of Evergreen State College, pushed back on a student demand that all white people get off campus for a day because of racism and received a lot of abuse for it. He tells his story to Tucker.
