User Submitted: Post Racism is Great! Good Thing I'm Not Getting Tenure


Post racism is a great time to be alive. As a black assistant professor who just published her first book with a top tier press, I think it’s about time I be denied tenure. Ironically, my book is largely about racism within occupations and academia and it’s black history month, so it makes perfect sense that some of my colleagues allowed a man who hates women and minorities to chair my tenure committee and guide me right out the door. No matter, as we speak they are busy tring to find another person of color to fill the highly sought after position of Successful Minority to Underappreciate. After all, the official building capacity does not permit any brown people that are actually more accomplished than many of their white colleagues.
