Ethnic Studies Professor Andrea Smith Is Racial Impostor

Fundamental to liberal orthodoxy is the dogma that Caucasians are somehow “privileged.” We are told we must counter this imaginary privilege by granting to groups that really are privileged even more privilege. Meanwhile, not-so-privileged whites conspire to acquire privilege by pretending to belong to identity groups favored by the liberal establishment. The latest is Andrea Smith, a supposedly Amerindian professor at University of California, Riverside:

The superstar Marxist agitator Angela Davis once called Smith “one of the greatest indigenous feminist intellectuals of our time,” but oh, how the oppressed have fallen. The Times of London reported [last] Tuesday that Smith “has agreed to resign from the university “after complaints from colleagues” over her “fraudulently claiming to be of Native American heritage.”

Smith is an “ethnic studies expert” — that is, she is paid to denounce Caucasians and Western Civilization. Being white herself undermines the contention that whites are the source of all evil.

Even by liberal standards, her hypocrisy is prodigious:

[I]n 1991, Smith had the unmitigated chutzpah to accuse “white women of wanting to ‘become Indian’ so they can ‘escape responsibility and accountability for white racism.’”

At least she didn’t accuse them of doing it so as to get cushy jobs spitting on America from inside the Ivory Tower.

Like her ideology and her treasured nonwhite status, Smith’s resignation is fake. UC Riverside was forced to fire her, but did so as nicely as possible, presumably in consideration of her liberal orthodoxy. Educrats announced that…

“She will step down in August next year and will be able to keep teaching until her retirement.” What’s more, “she will not be subjected to an investigation, will keep her retirement benefits and will retain the title of professor emeritus.” As if that weren’t enough, “the university will cover up to $5,000 of her legal fees related to the complaint.”

Please welcome Professor Smith to the growing list of racial impostors, along with Kay LeClaire, Elizabeth Hoover, Carrie Bourassa, CV Vitolo-Haddad, Gwen Stefani, Heather Rae, Jessica Krug, Kristen Rosen Gonzalez, Rick Caruso, Kelly Kean Sharp, Rachel Dolezal, Raquel Evita Saraswati, Sacheen Littlefeather, Satchuel Cole, Shaun King, and powerful Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren, among others.
