Great news for Social Justice Warriors:

Now, you can all rail against cars, highways, the Internet, film and media, racism, patriarchy, and heterosexual bias, and you get five credits towards your college degree.

Because… Spatial Injustice!

Via Campus Reform.

The University of California-Los Angeles is offering a technology class this summer examining how “car culture” contributes to “spatial injustice.”

The course, “LA Tech City: Digital Technologies and Spatial Injustice,” will be offered through the UCLA Digital Humanities department and will be taught by Professor Todd Presner and Professor Dana Cuff.

“Students will investigate spatial justice and injustice in the multi-ethnic city through the lens of three thematic technologies,” the syllabus states, listing cars and highways, the Internet, and film and media as factors that contribute to spatial injustice

While Professor Presner declined to comment, he referred Campus Reform to the definition of “spatial injustice” by Edward Soja, who laments the “production of unjust geographies and spatial structures of privilege” within cities, which he argues can be “aggravated further by racism, patriarchy, heterosexual bias.”….

    Mansplaining is not just for subway cars anymore.
    I’ll believe this course when it criticizes 47 SUV motorcades.

    I thought spaceial injustice was ended with Uhura and Sulu.
    (Though why double Us in the names for minorities. Spaceism?)

    They provide a link to the actual course curriculum. I check these things out to see whether the report has slanted the data. But it does indeed assure us that “Students will investigate spatial justice and injustice in the multi-ethnic city”, with “racial and ethnic complexity” associated with “unequal access to information, technology, as well as housing and urban space.”

    Obviously this sort of thing is the product of diseased minds, and it should have no place at the university. But there doesn’t seem to be much to be done about it.

    Revolution can begin in the Universities, and then spread to society. Tyranny is the aim, and the tyrants will use useful idiots to bring it forth.
