That link is broken, mate. Can you repost a working one? I'd be interested in reading that article.
Miss linked it mate,

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/20 ... e-english/

Problem with the Telegraph is it wants you to pay, there is a longer article in the Express if you can ignore the rabid commentors at the bottom, although some of them are quite funny:

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/870787 ... literature

Fill your boots, i'm slightly confused why an English literature course with English authors is racist, surely as with most Degrees there is option to refine your degree in 2nd/3rd year to more specific areas of interest as long as they fall within the underlying criteria.

I'm fairly sure you don't teach Maths by starting with Algebra before students have even learned basic Arithmatic
Thanks, Muzz. The first couple paragraphs set the alarm bells ringing;

Lola Olufemi, Cambridge University’s Student Union’s women’s officer and the voice behind the move, penned a letter to professors with over 100 student signatures.

The letter, titled “Decolonising the English Faculty” read: “For too long, teaching English at Cambridge has encouraged a ‘traditional’ and ‘canonical’ approach that elevates white male authors at the expense of all others.

“What we can no longer ignore, however, is the fact that the curriculum, taken as a whole, risks perpetuating institutional racism.”


A couple of glaring points she misses is that many many (maybe the vast majority?) of the best authors in the English language are... wait for it... white males.... and to call it "racism" is really demonstrating her own ignorance and lack of understanding of what racism is. Are students who specialise in African literature also racist? :roll:

Can't believe she managed to find 100 other bellends. Though it is students... :roll: :censored:

Not being funny but i'd be a bit surprised if i did for example a French literature course and it didn't mention Voltaire, Jules Verne, Vitor Hugo or even Satré and i think anyone else would surprised if a humanities department in any university in any country didn't cover their own literature written by their own writers. :rubchin:

I would suspect that if the University of Dublin does an Irish literature course it doesn't touch on anything by Yeats, Joyce, Wilde or Beckett...... oh wait :banghead:

Personally can't stand Shakespeare however as his era is the real start of English literary 'genius', not sure if that is the right word, then i'd bloody expect the majority of it to be based around the writings of White Englishmen and incidentally some woman, such as the Brontes or Austin.

Not only that but as during that period of time the BEMs did not speak English and a part of them did not keep written records it would be a bit difficult to cover their literature in an English literature course.

I'll be honest i can't even think of any BEM writers that i've read and i read a lot, i know my eldest did a book at GCSE call 'Purple Hibiscus' by a Nigerian author (which she hated and thought was really boring) but other than that i'm drawing a blank. I'm not saying there aren't great BEM authors just that i'm not aware of them.

English literature is English, not African, Indian or other former colonies or other countries who use the English language, just as Irish literature is Irish but written in the English language and as French literature would be French written in the French language.

I can't stand these muppets who look for racism where their isn't any but whom will percieve it there anyway :roll:

Not sure what it is like in other countries but in the UK i am beginning to get the feeling more and more people are getting fed up with constantly being called white racists over everything and anything. If this keeps happening then racism will become a real and prevalent thing where it doesn't currently exist as opposed to a perception by the SJW and virtue signallers

Apparently all football league clubs will be having rainbow corner flags in the "biggest ever show of LGBT+ support" in support of Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign.

FFS, I go to watch a football match, I honestly don't care if the players or supporters are LGBT+ as it has absolutely no relevance whatsoever. Sick and tired of people hijacking football for their own aims.

^^ THIS 100%. Everyfuckingwhere you turn now it's some pack of PC hipster cúnts hijacking something irrelevant for their own attention-seeking "cause". :oops: :roll:

Stick your fucking rainbow corner flags up your fucking shitters you twats. :x What next? Everyone at all football grounds will be given a pink t-shirt to wear to show "solidarity" with some other fucker's sexual preference? Really? What is that going to change or improve? Gays/Lezzers/LBGT/XYZ/123/whatever-initials-you-wanna-use are not treated badly or descriminated against by most normal thinking people nowadays are they? They have the same human rights as anyone else. Anyone that treats them badly is likely a cúnt and you aren't going to change homophobic cúnts by wearing a t-shirt or colouring in a corner flag, just like you can't change racists by doing that. :censored: :roll:

My mate John likes a bit of S&M. Can we all wear gimp masks to a game to show solidarity with his sexual preference? :roll:

I may have dreamed this (I hope so) but did I really read today that a primary school kid's mother has demanded the removal of "Sleeping Beauty" from the school curriculum because the prince has kissed sleeping beauty without her verbal agreement to said kiss and he is therefore guilty of sexual assault? If this is true, I really despair for this snowflake generation.

Yes,it is true.The womans name is Sarah Hall,from Tyneside,and she states that as the princess is asleep,the kiss is non-consensual,and there encourages non-consensual sex. :shock:

Or the cross dressing wolf in Little red riding hood , or the litter bugs in Hansel and Gretel being saved from the cannibalistic witch.
Those Grimm brothers have a lot to answer for.

That's it. We are done. The world has stuck its collective head up its own arse and lit its own farts, inhaling the moist burning stench of hipster PC insanity unto death. :roll: :censored:

Apu is racist. It's official - attention seeking PC liberal tosser Hari Kondabolu says so. :roll:

http://www.vulture.com/2017/11/hari-kon ... rview.html

Fuck off and die. It's satire, it's comedy, exaggeration, caricature, and a bit of harmless stereotyping at worst ffs. The Simpsons have done numerous piss-takes and spoofs on the Oirish and I struggle to recall one Oirish fucker making a whining fucking documentary about it. One of the best moments was News anchor Kent Brockman reporting live from Springfield’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations when they took a violent turn: “All this drinking, violence, destruction of property – are these the things we think of when we think of the Irish?” :lol:

Jesus Christ so many sensitive easily offended cúnts and so few bullets. :censored:
