Koritha Mitchell, an associate Professor of English at Ohio State University, has declared that most problems in the United States "can be traced" to "our country’s standards for white people."
Professor Mitchell wrote this on her personal website; her specific article was titled, "Low Standards for Whites. That’s What’s Killing Us."
"It doesn’t take much at all for a white person to be considered good," Mitchell argues. "As long as they avoid killing someone themselves, no one is going to demand anything else of them. Whites don’t need to do anything decent for anyone."
Most white people contribute little to society, Professor Mitchell writes, nor do they do things that help the "common good."
Professor Mitchell continues, "We know that this is a racist country, that if history is taught the way it has always been taught, then white students will have role models and a sense of pride."
Additionally, the United States is "heterosexist."
Mitchell concludes her article, "Being white shouldn’t be enough to be considered good. Low expectations for white people. That’s what’s killing us. Please, do better."
