There is nothing wrong with studying about the contributions of different ethnic groups or cultures; but it should be taught within the grand scope of world history. To single out one particular race, based solely on their race, and only teach about their contributions to history, at the exclusion of every other race, is racist.
It's because of all these segregated race-history and feminism courses, that our college campuses have become the primary breeding grounds of modern racism.
Modern racism states that as long as you only hate white people and Jews, then it's okay to be racist and, as long as you only hate heterosexual men, then it's okay to be sexist. That's nonsense.
