Professor Denounces “Jingle Bells” as Racist

Anything that reminds cultural Marxists of traditional American culture must be eradicated, preferably starting with Christmas. Already people barely dare to speak the word, lest they be regarded as insensitive, offensive, intolerant, et cetera. Piece by piece, liberals will obliterate every last aspect of Christmas, just as they are doing to America as a whole. That’s why the song “Jingle Bells” is now racist:

A Boston University theater professor claims the Christmas carol has a “problematic history” because it was originally performed to make fun of African Americans.

Barks theater historian Kyna Hamill,

“Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its racialized past and taken its place in the seemingly unproblematic romanticization of a normal ‘white’ Christmas, attention to the circumstances of its performance history enables reflection on its problematic role in the construction of blackness and whiteness in the United States.”

Hamill tenuously links the song to blackface minstrel performances in the mid 19th century.

Wrap the song in a Confederate Flag and stuff it down the Memory Hole. We can sing “Imagine” while we celebrate winter solstice instead.

“Jingle Bells” was the first song ever broadcast from outer space, reminding us that the space program has been mainly the work of white males and therefore should also be abolished, just as soon as we have finished erasing Christmas. No one will have a use for a space program in post-Caucasian utopia.

On tips from Guy B, Steve T, and Stormfax.

    What a pity it is that nobody will tell his pillock; “You have ENTIRELY too much time on your hands.”

  • paracelsus

    It’s been so well hidden (the racism) that no one else has been able to see it.

  • rambler

    Gee, how much time got wasted to provide that flimsy excuse to call something racist? That time could have been spent in a more productive manner.

  • grayjohn

    “Professor” sure don’t mean what it used to.

    “There is no idea so stupid that you can’t find a professor who will believe it.” H.L. Mencken

    That one is simply another that illustrates the point quite well.

  • rambler

    Plus wanting 15 minutes of fame.

  • “Divergent” sgthwjack ✯

    15 minutes of infamy would be more accurate.

  • rambler

    Yup, all those attention junkies should have said nothing. Instead they confirmed their stupidity.

  • MAS

    And too much public funding…


    Has “white” been banned yet? The color, the people.. any references to it.

    May all of us have a WHITE CHRISTMAS in all its senses

    These libtard professor “progressives” just can’t help themselves. They have to suck the joy out of everything. They want the rest of us to be just as joyless in our lives as they are.

    “White” is out. Caucasians will henceforth be known as “People of NO Color” or “The Melanin Deficient”.

    It meant “educator” way back when I was a student.

  • Frank

    You need to look though a proper lens. Shit-colored works best.

  • Jim Lehey

    Yeah, but Batman still smells. I can say that because Bruce Wayne is a rich white guy, right?

  • Pyrran

    I denounce this professor. I like denouncing almost as much as banning.

    Seriously, this doofus has nothing else better to do?

    “because it was originally performed to make fun of African Americans.”
    where in the name of goodness does she come up with that!!??!! I’ve never heard anything that stupid or inaccurate.

    “Hamill tenuously links the song to blackface minstrel performances” because everyone knows this is how the song is traditionally sung in America.

    Gee, it must be great to have so much time on your hands that you have to invent things that are racist.

  • grayjohn

    Hell yes.

  • James McEnanly

    Here we have a distant relative of hers singing your version

  • James McEnanly

    You may have not on January ‘stalking points.

  • Otis Donkey

    so if it offends you so much, move to a country where there IS no singing. Or Christianity. Say, North Korea. I hear the weather is nice this time of year.

  • QuintusFabiusMaximus

    More Bolshevism coming from the same tribe that murdered 70 million Christians in Russia and the Ukraine alone between 1917 and 1989.

    This is my shocked face….

  • gary

    of course it’s racist, what isn’t?
