Isaiah Blake '21 Featured in Total Meltdown

Image
James Allsup has uploaded a funny and informative take on the April 9, 2019 livestream deleted by the College Council. Allsup's YouTube video has received 4,766 comments and 130,670 views as of May 4, 2019.

As you may know, this video features one of the CARE Now leaders, Isaiah Blake '21 saying “to be here [at Williams] is like sucking white d*** every f***ing day.” “We want some money to f***ing cook some fried f***ing chicken and be n***ers.”

Allsup's most humorous line was maybe everyone would be better off if the College Council just provided applicants with free knee pads.

On a more serious note, Allsup picked up on a theme I've been stressing. The bigoted rant performed by Isaiah Blake '21 and Seyi Olaose '22 wasn't about politics...it was about verbal abuse. These black students were using the cover of identity politics to inflict psychic pain on the white students.

The video isn't long...about 15:34. My comments are featured at 6:53 and again …

Activist Says: 'I Want Anger' - Seyi Olaose '22 and Isaiah Blake '21 Rant at White Students at June 9, 2019 Williams College Student Council Meeting

Image
To provide prospective students and their parents with insight into the dysfunctional culture of Williams College, I thought it would helpful to review a transcript of the verbal abuse recently leveled against white student representatives at the April 9, 2019 College Council meeting. To make it easier to compare the transcript with the video, I have uploaded a version of the video that aligns with the transcript presented below.

To keep it interesting, I'll add in my commentary as appropriate. I'll start by saying that Seyi Olaose '21 creeps me out with her controlling behavior. When I taught at Williams College in the late 1980's my area of focus was child abuse and neglect. I'm hypersensitive to verbal abuse. In the following exchange, she is basically taunting the white student representatives, basically daring even shaming them to talk back to her. She is supported in this effort by the actor/student Isaiah Blake, '21. As you may know Isaiah has appeared …

The Purple Rubble: Williams College Council Deletes Anti-White Rant by Isaiah Blake '21

Image
The College Council has removed from its Facebook account a controversial video. This video captured an example of profane, incendiary, anti-white bigotry directed at white student representatives by Isaiah Blake '21 - an actor and one of the most prominent black student leaders at Williams College on June 9, 2019.


The video featured a long, stream-of-consciousness rant by Isaiah Blake saying, in part, "...to be here is like sucking white d*** every f***ing day."
"You want a discussion and dialogue. Here’s the f***ing dialog. We don’t have dialogue, because every time we try to talk to you we get shut down by the white moderate, white liberal bull***t." A link to the video was published on Ephblog on April 15, 2019. A partial transcript appeared at the Anonymous Political Scientist blog on that same day. Finally, The College Fix published a link to the video on April 19, 2019. The College Fix is a national-level conservative website where student journalists wr…

Shut Up, He Argued: Listening at the Great Awokening

Image
The great Darel E. Paul, professor of political science, published a well-researched and thoughtfully organized article at Areo on how the new identity politics has taken hold at schools across the nation. He connects the dots which show how identity politics has become a staple at schools as different as Williams, Sarah Lawrence, Evergreen State College and Yale.

Listening at the Great Awokening Colleges and universities across the English-speaking world are caught up in the enthusiasm of a Great Awokening. Its dogmas are structural violence, systemic racism, racial stress, white privilege, white fragility, implicit bias and microaggressions. From the University of Missouri to Evergreen State College to Sarah Lawrence College and beyond, faculty and students are ablaze with the fire of social justice. In Paul's view, liberal arts colleges are particularly likely to get wrapped up in the dogma of critical race theory because they lack - by definition - traditional STEM programs li…

Evergreen Now! Anti-White Hate at Williams College

Image
Is Williams College the new Evergreen State College? No matter the answer, it looks like the divisiveness of identity politics is exploding on the Williams College campus, as seen on the official video recording of a College Council (CC) meeting on April 9, 2019.

NOTE: The CC took the video down from their Facebook site. You can still see it, however, on YouTube. There is also an abbreviated version that includes the most hostile remarks. It is also on YouTube.

In the video, Isaiah Blake '21 complains about having to ask for money from the College Council by saying, "Every time to be here is like sucking white dick every fucking day." According to a report in the Williams Record, black activists planned a large demonstration to further articulate their views, but cancelled it after video of Isaiah Blake's comments appears on various on-line sites.

Although the details of this controversial video have so far eluded The Williams Record, they have been reported on and d…
