I don't think you all have any idea of how destructive (and counter-productive) this "anti-intellectual" tendency is. Those FEW of us who go through American Universities and survive, spend years with our own questioning, questioning our professor's biases, questioning our classmates' biases, DEFENDING OUR PEOPLE, often times being the only one there, often time being the first one there... you spend LITERALLY years... maybe even decades of your life in the active pursuit of knowledge - that is not simply parroting your professors - sometimes even opposing your professors.... you have ULCERS at the end of the process... Then as faculty you're expected to singlehandedly represent black interests - again being the ONLY one there... often times opposing white colleagues...

I was the ONLY African American (on record) in my graduation year to receive a Ph.D. in mathematics... in the whole country... I was the first black faculty member in my department...

And then your own damned people come with this "white man's knowledge" bullsh*t. Like I'm sorta robot. The first ones coming with this "Nigga, who do you think you are?" sh*t are the black ones...

THEN YOU WANT TO ASK WHAT I'M DOING FOR OUR PEOPLE????

Stubbed a toe? Indeed...

You have no idea how disgusted I am....

And I shouldn't even be that offended... because the closest academic "expert" here on these particular matters is Kresge...
