Hmm, you make good points but what you fail to notice is that while historical slavery is a thing of the past, racial discrimination is not (even if it has been steadily diminishing since those times). I acknowledge that my analogy was not complex enough to portray that which was a conscious choice for the sake of simplicity.

I’m not sure what I failed to notice.

To rephrase, the point here is that the African American person living in year 2017 has no claim to better knowledge of the way life was for black slaves than any other person does, and certainly not because of their skin color.

That’s obvious, prima facie.

Seriously now. This dustup was/is all about a pithy point of history regarding familial relationships as they were maintained (or not) prior to 1860. There’s no way information like this is transmitted across generations simply due to race. The student seemed to have a preconception about the matter that she obtained somewhere, but as we have seen, the professor seems to have been factually correct, and ergo refuted the student.

As for “future destroying” did you skip the part where social media messages of the professor were discovered boasting about planning to destroy the student career’s /after she graduated/? I do have to wonder if you were too busy feeling outraged at the bashing of this “poor white woman” by this hateful anti-white black thug to realize that she was actually a disproportionately vindictive and unprofessional person.

No. My point was and is that the professor has no ability to destroy anyone’s future. That’s simply hubris on her part.

As far as the rest of your assumptions, leave out the straw men.
