Yale Will Eliminate a Beloved Introductory Art Class for Being Too White, Male, and Western

Article here. Excerpt:

'Enrollment has swelled for Yale University's introductory art history course, which covers "the Renaissance to the present." That's because the school plans to eliminate the popular class after the spring.

According to The Yale Daily News, the art department has decided that the class might make some students uncomfortable due to the "overwhelming" whiteness, maleness, and straightness of the artists who comprise the Western canon (though that last label may be dubious). Indeed, the focus on Western art is "problematic," course instructor Tim Barringer told the student newspaper.

"I want all Yale students (and all residents of New Haven who can enter our museums freely) to have access to and to feel confident analyzing and enjoying the core works of the western tradition," said Barringer. "But I don't mistake a history of European painting for the history of all art in all places."'

due to straight, white males?

obviously yale 'elitists' aren't educated enough to read crime stats in every large blue city.

hint: it ain't the straight white males doing the killing, raping, robing and every other felony imaginable. oh but its ok to blame us. everybody does.

alinski would be so proud. pure unadulterated communists posing as academia. thanks AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!

I guess we should give them credit though. they did figure out a way to make a 70 i.q. the smartest person in an ivy league classroom room w/o d.n.a. manipulation. whowouldathunkit?
