DISPATCHES FROM THE EDUCATION APOCALYPSE: Barnard College instructor discusses blowing up and gassing whites in coming race war.

According to The Post Millennial, on the CBC show “q,” Ben Philippe was asked about a segment in his book “Sure, I’ll be your Black Friend” which describes “detonating” white people while nearby air vents spew out noxious gas.

“When this race war hits its crescendo, I’ll gather you all into a beautifully decorated room under the pretense of unity,” Philippe said. “I’ll give a speech to civility and all the good times we share; I’ll smile as we raise glasses to your good, white health, while the detonator blinks under the table, knowing the exits are locked and the air vents filled with gas.”

Phillippe, who teaches English and film studies at Barnard, told “q” guest host Talia Schlanger the section in the book describing these actions originally was much longer, but his editor whittled it down.

“I guess I was wrestling with the question that, isn’t the end result of that, all-out warfare? Like, ‘Game of Thrones’-style warfare? and what does that look like? And I lived in that sort of stray thought for a few pages. And it was disturbing to write, too. Because I’m not a violent person, I love all my white friends,” Philippe said.

Schlanger told her guest that, as a Jewish person whose “grandparents survived the Holocaust,” she was speechless upon hearing the passage. Remarkably, she then apologized to Philippe: “I wanted to say to you that I’m so sorry that your experience of the world made you feel that way.”

There’s audio of that exchange in a tweet embedded at the link at the College Fix. Their post ends with a link to the full interview, which now 404s;   Andy Ngo tweets that the CBC has since removed their interview with Phillippe.

The annual cost to attend Barnard is “$55,781 per year ($27,890.50 per semester),” according to Barnard’s Website. Choose wisely, parents.
