At the University of Michigan, they’re serious about social justice.
So much so that they’re effectively hiring a “cultural appropriation” cop who will make sure everyone stays in their own cultural domain and doesn’t dare venture outside their culture.
The new employee will oversee the taxpayer-funded school’s “Bias Response Team” and be responsible for enacting “cultural appropriation prevention initiatives.”
In the official job listing, the position is a “Bias Incident Prevention and Response Coordinator,” who will make as much as $57,000 per year.
The officer – located at the Ann Arbor campus – will provide “direct support services to students of concern or in crisis,” investigate reports of bias incidents on campus and enact “cultural appropriation prevention initiatives.”
The officer will also be in charge of managing the prestigious schools’ “Bias Prevention Initiatives and Expect Respect” initiatives. This includes brainwashi – er … “orientation” for all new students.
The University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor is a national leader in radical identity politics, The Daily Caller reports.
Back in November, just after the 2016 presidential election, staffers at the University of Michigan Law School scheduled a post-presidential election event entitled “Post-election Self-care with Food and Play.”
“Join us for delicious and comforting food with opportunity to experience some stress-busting, self-care activities such as coloring sheets, play dough [sic], positive card-making, Legos, and bubbles with your fellow law students,” the description of the event announced — before school officials rescinded it in response to intense national mockery.
“Cultural appropriation” has been the new quixotic issue for the left. It is the idea that white, European culture cannot and must not be able to use, consume, enjoy, or otherwise “appropriate” the “artifacts” of other cultures. It’s led to restaurants being closed and all sorts of nonsense nationwide.
