OMG Lib Scientists Declares Science Rasist
These oversensitive irrational progressives need to stop. This is just too much. They are trying to demonize everything now. This time they are going as far as to say that a whole field of study is racist. Some scientists are claiming that Geology is racist because black people are afraid that if they use hammers they will be killed...
"Top geologists condemned systemic white supremacy in the field of geoscience, which concerns the study of earth and rocks, in a manifesto published at the scientific journal Nature Communications. The academics claim black people are hesitant to take up geology because they fear being killed while handling basic geology tools as a result of the stereotype associated with black people "holding objects."
"As the geosciences strive to be more accessible, the community must recognize that BIPOC and other marginalized geoscientists are not always safe in geoscience spaces," the article said. "Holding objects (e.g., a rock hammer) has been viewed as ‘suspicious' and, continues to be, used as a reason to call the police on Black people, which can lead to the death of Black individuals, entirely because of racial profiling and an unjustified fear of Black people."
"The manifesto, which was spearheaded by Fort Hays State University geology professor Hendratta Ali and signed by 20 academics, asserts that the lack of black geologists demonstrates the bigoted roots of the science."
Do these scientists realize that carpenters and construction workers also use hammers? This is such a foolish claim. Black people are in all sorts of professions where they hold objects. Black people are police and they have guns. They are cooks/chefs so they use knives. Geology is the study of rocks, there is nothing remotely racist about that. Most geologists, regardless of race, do not walk around threateningly with their hammers. These scientists need to go back to school or find some friends with common sense.
