An African American politics course at Syracuse University requires that students read leftist filmmaker Michael Moore’s book Stupid White Men.
Students at Syracuse University that enroll in “African American Politics” may be in for a dose of leftist indoctrination. According to a report by Campus Reform, students in the course are required to purchase a copy of Michael Moore’s 2001 book, Stupid White Men, which focused primarily on criticisms of the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.
But Stupid White Men isn’t simply a criticism of past presidents. As the title suggests, the book includes controversial statements about race. In one chapter, which is subtly titled “Kill Whitey,” Moore asks if all white people suffer from a “shared low-grade of mental illness?”
“Are white people’s brains hardwired to see one thing but believe the opposite because of race?” Moore writes. “Do all white people suffer from some shared low-grade of mental illness?”
