Racists With PhD's

For the love of God:

Romney truly is the whitest man to run for president because he doesn't realize how his whiteness has influenced his life and how his class standing provided him with remarkable educational and financial opportunities.

It should be mentioned that the author of that Huffington Post bit of idiocy is paid handsomely for it.  She holds a PhD and teaches at the University of Rochester, where her "research focuses on the ways in which issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality influence conceptions of freedom."

Which says a lot about (a) how easy it is to obtain a PhD these days, (b) how detached academia is from normal human existence, and (c) how low the threshold is for getting a gig at the Huffington Post.
