Maybe they should spend less time trying to push social agendas and work more on being a school for all people besides the social agenda kids.

^^Idiot. The complaint of the poor abused white man.

How do you teach history without discussing social justice?

Is it radical to say that slavery was wrong? Or that, therefore, Christians were less holy then they like to imagine themselves to be?

American History is a scathing indictment of the white race, & their hypocrisy in claiming to follow the teachings of Jesus ben Joseph.

The last lynching occurred in 1970. A black men was killed because his employer made him a supervisor. Or, because white people are lawless savages. Or, both.

Is it not appropriate to discuss such things in a school?

We need to be petitioning the Missouri Department of Higher Education to revoke the degrees of all UM System graduates. It’s obvious that the public at large has lost all respect for people who have graduated from UM System.

especially the thug journalism school which prioritizes "muscle" among its students.

Did they teach you social justice in your special ed program, otherwise known as retard school?

the UMKC faculty are nice but they are, indeed, very politicized. their courses are slanted through a filter and they have an agenda beyond teaching.

most of academia is the same.

Byron is at it again. Feeling sorry for the down low. Btw Byron- Lynching was like slavery, not just BLACKS were lynched and not just Blacks were slaves. In fact, who currently has Slaves ? With your ten million posts a year, what are you doing to prevent this ? Poor Byron thinks Columbus was white but Mexicans are discriminated due to skin color. UMKC is dedicated to extreme agendas. Poor Byron. Poor , poor Byron.

You need to be more concerned about the college-graduates who come from the technical sciences like engineering. Those are the people who do things that actually affect the rest of us. Those are the people, like those who graduate from the engineering schools of these left-wing universities, who design things like roundabouts and diverging diamond interchanges, and go to work for state government at highway departments as "traffic experts". Why do you think the KC area has so many roundabouts and those backwards "diverging diamond interchanges"? Because MoDOT has a whole bunch of left-wing engineering graduates from Mizzou and UMKC.

The radical professors who spew their communism are just spewing talk, but don't have any real effect on the rest of society. The "technical" people from places like engineering school of these colleges are the real danger. They get out into the work force and do stuff that puts people in physical danger.

Time to discontinue taxpayer funding of Universities like UMKC.

General Studies classes need to be eliminated as they simply are a regurgitation of K-12. Waste of a student's money as nothing new learned.

Maybe if the college professors and administrators actually worked more than 9 hours a week they would have less time for their anti- American, communist rants.

Only college professors in our society get three months of taxpayer paid vacation in the summer and a month of vacation over the holidays.

Like the KC Star, public universities bite the hand that feeds them and their time has come amd gone. A new business model for public Universities is needed.
