UMass Boston to Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich: Change Title of “It’s OK to Be White” Speech, Or It Will Be Banned
Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich is scheduled for a Friday, November 17 speech at the University of Massachusetts Boston, but the campus is currently taking issue with the title of Wintrich’s speech: “It Is Ok to Be White” and are requesting a title change.
The current title is a subtle dig at identity politics and also plays as a rebuttal to those egregious liberals in the mainstream press and beyond, people like Ekow N. Yankah, who just published a November 11 opinion piece in the New York Times titled, “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?” It’s these types of constant jabs at white people that leads to memes like “It Is OK to Be White” coming into existence.
Wintrich’s title comes from a shared and slightly tongue-in-cheek phrase floating around the New Right, and to those that eat the mainstream media diet, anything that expresses positivity relative to white people is perceived as racist. Naturally, administrators at UMass Boston caved to the politically correct pressure and asked Wintrich to rework the title.
“It’s humorous but highly frustrating that UMass Boston just PROVED the meme I was using for this speech,” Wintrich commented, “To think that they would take issue with a title as laughably mundane as ‘It Is OK to Be White’ is indicative, I think, of a larger problem within America, it’s the ‘systematic oppression’ of anything that does not negatively reference and bash white people on university campuses. Ironically, the speech I’ve been working on deals in part with university and media censorship of concepts and ideas.”
Wintrich’s November 17 speech will be tackling topics like the history of Western art, the pitfalls of labeling art obscene and the history of obscenity laws in America generally, what makes Western culture important, and many other interesting topics, and there is no call-to-racist-action for whites layered within the text of the speech – administrators undoubtedly feared “dogwhistles” peppered throughout.
Wintrich stated that he is not going to push back against the campus too much because he feels the content is much more impactful than the title:
“I am not going to stick to my guns and keep the title at the risk of not being able to deliver my speech. I’ll capitulate to this demand and change the title; the content of the speech is more important than a meme reference. On the brighter side, this gives me a great new introduction for the speech.”
Wintrich’s speech will take place at University of Massachusetts Boston on Friday, November 17, 2017, at University Hall Y02-2300 at 3:00PM EST.
