A new book on Woke Academia by two of the “grievance studies” authors

A guide to the problems of wokism

Why Evolution Is True

Helen Pluckrose and James Lindsay are two of the three “grievance studies” hoaxers (Peter Boghossian was the other); all have devoted considerable time and valuable effort to debunking the postmodernistic debasement of woke academia. Now Pluckrose and Lindsay have collaborated on an upcoming book, called to my attention by Paul Topping. It goes on sale June 16, and is only $20 for a 348-page hardback. The Amazon summary is below, along with a cover image (click screenshot to go to Amazon page) and three endorsements.

When I arrived in South Africa I was met at the airport by the office manager, who was a nasty racist. He asked my how I got on with the “coons” in Uganda. I played dumb and he used every offensive term in the book. finally I said they were great and pulled out a photo taken two weeks before of me holding the hand of a young Ugandan woman about the same age as me, as I was helping her to cross a plank bridge. He was not amused and hated me thereafter !!

Telling white people to be more conscious of their whiteness is a recipe for disaster.
