MIT Librarian Slams White People For Writing Books

White people are oppressing PoCs because they write a lot of books which “physically” take up too much “space” in our nation’s libraries and “promote and proliferate whiteness with their very existence,” according to academic librarian Sofia Leung of Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Library Journal shared this article from Leung to their more than 200,000 Twitter followers on Tuesday

So, seeing that this is MIT and, that much of Math and Science was pioneered by Old White Guys..and MIT is known for teaching this stuff...I think she may have trouble removing those White Guy books from the stacks..

Let's start with this one, written by a Dead White Guy. Without it, MIT likely wouldn't exist.

Facepalm The stupid it hurts!
This debate seems to fit the narrative. Per a debate in a South African University, science was invented by white guys so blacks should reject it entirely and go back to their old beliefs and reinvent science their way.

Aggressive fallist from the "Shackville TRC" claims science must be "done away with entirely" and "start over again."

The Teaching And Learning Program Manager at MIT libraries, Sofia Leung (“I believe that social justice work is library work and that we should all be collectively engaged in our liberation”), has detected impurity in the stacks. She writes:
If you look at any United States library’s collection, especially those in higher education institutions, most of the collections (books, journals, archival papers, other media, etc.) are written by white dudes writing about white ideas, white things, or ideas, people, and things they stole from POC and then claimed as white property with all of the “rights to use and enjoyment of” that Harris describes in her article. When most of our collections filled with this so-called “knowledge,” it continues to validate only white voices and perspectives and erases the voices of people of color. Collections are representations of what librarians (or faculty) deem to be authoritative knowledge and as we know, this field and educational institutions, historically, and currently, have been sites of whiteness.

Snip
She hates old books because white people wrote them and loved them. That’s what it amounts to. This woman is not some SJW kook beavering away in the basement of Evergreen State, or a dyspeptic grad student in Grievance Studies. She is an important librarian at MIT. What’s more, the venerable trade publication Library Journal tweeted her blog entry. The blog entry in which she calls for the purging of library collections because white people wrote them and loved them and collected them. Their existence offends her sense of justice.
Do you not see what’s happening here? Those who control a culture’s memory control its people. Sofia “Social Justice Work Is Library Work” Leung wants to throw certain books down the memory hole because they are racially impure. If this catches on, then some sane institutions stand to inherit some valuable books tossed out by woke universities … unless Sofia Leung Thought requires the burning of those whiteness grimoires so they can’t pollute the minds of others ever again.

I agree with them 100% that they should reject white devil science and return to the old ways. Then we should leave them completely on their own to enjoy the new black utopia they create. Let them try and be Wakanda. We must not interfere by sending white grown food or white aid of any kind. I am sure the world will be astounded by what they manage to achieve.
