Professor calls America a failed experiment: ‘Only for white people … didn’t work for black people’

An education professor at an elite Philadelphia-area, women’s liberal arts college claims — without evidence — that the U.S. is an experiment that has gone wrong and that it only benefits white people.

Critical race theory advocate Chanelle Wilson, a Bryn Mawr College assistant professor, made these comments during a 45-minute discussion on a podcast called “Refuse Fascism.”

“[America] didn’t work for black people. Damn sure it didn’t work for indigenous people. It did not work for people of Mexican ancestry. It didn’t work for Asians, it didn’t work for Jewish people, it didn’t work for Japanese people. It didn’t work for Chinese people. So who is this country for? This country is only for white people…none of this works for your average ‘American citizen’…this experiment has failed,” Wilson claimed.

Wilson, who insisted that she has never felt she belonged in America, also proposed “trying something new,” whatever that means, although it doesn’t sound particularly inviting for those who cherish, among other things, free markets and free speech.

Obviously, love of country includes acknowledging its deficiencies, past or present, otherwise the MAGA movement, as one recent example, would never have emerged.

Chanelle Wilson is an assistant professor of education and the director of Africana Studies at the school and also reportedly conducts anti-racist education webinars and workshops for other colleges around the country.

Bryn Mawr College charges students about $55,000 per year in tuition for their education.

Many would find it perplexing that those who have prospered in the U.S. the most often seem to loathe it the most.

Meanwhile, people from all over the world from all backgrounds want to come to an alleged systemically racist country, legally and illegally, and stay permanently

Listen to the clip embedded below and draw your own conclusions:

On average and probably with little or no heavy lifting as compared to jobs outside of academia, Bryn Mawr professors reportedly earn from $82,000 to $107,000 per year, depending on how far along they are in their careers, plus any cushy outside income that may often be available to university-level teachers generally for consulting, writing, speaking, and so forth.

The diversity/equity identity-politics ideology, alone, has created a lucrative cottage industry.

Prominent George Washington University law professor and self-described liberal Jonathan Turley is hardly giving Wilson’s narrative high marks:

It is bizarre to claim that Jewish people and Asian people for example did not find success in this country, but Wilson claims that as an undeniable fact. Likewise, many in the Latino and Black communities have found great success in this country despite the continuing struggle with poverty in all of our communities.  There is no denying a wealth gap between racial groups, which continues to trouble many in our country. However, it is ridiculous to claim that groups have not found success in this country, which continues to draw millions to our shores as immigrants.

In a separate context, journalist Jason Whitlock earlier this week wrote that “anyone with an elementary understanding of world history knows racial bias will never end and that no country has done more to combat and subdue racism than America.”

“Bryn Mawr did not respond to emails…as to whether Professor Wilson’s views are representative of the views of the college at large,” The College Fix, which broke the story, reported.

“Her claims come as a World Values survey from June found that the United States is among the most racially tolerant nations in the world,” the website added. “She did not respond to a request for comment…as to whether she stands by her claim given this data.”

Back in May, as another reason why many young adults might be better off in a trade school learning high-paying, real-world skills without any far-left indoctrination, a faculty member at exclusive Brandeis University posted a four-paragraph diatribe in which she wrote, in part, “I don’t hate white people — I hate whiteness.”
