Racism and Stupidity on Display at HuffPo

Or, why English professors need to get bent:

For decades, scholars in the field of critical race theory have demonstrated how "whiteness" is not a universal standard but instead a specific social identity built upon unearned entitlements. Romney's whiteness is most flagrant not in the remarkable privilege he enjoyed, but in his denial of how his race has fundamentally influenced his life's trajectory.
Alternate subtitle: Why my IQ drops every time I read Huffpo; and/or: Where academia went tragically wrong.
