While I read Tea Party Nation blogs daily this is my first time to contribute to one. I am not sure if I would even call it a blog, but more like a personal rant. A couple of weeks ago I received two e-mails from my college, Northeastern State University, which really made my jaw hit the floor. One of them was for "Miss Black NSU" as I stared in shock at the attached flyer it took everything I had to control myself and not reply to the e-mail with the question "Is there going to be a Miss WHITE NSU?" I am not sure if this is the first Miss Black NSU but I do know I have never received an invitational e-mail for it before, and I have been a student there for quite a while. Let me rephrase that, I know I have never received an e-mail that I remember. In the age of Obama, Trayvon, white guilt, and black rights (or they may say oppression) it is hard for something like this to not stand out. I might have never given something like this a second thought before but now it is driving me crazy! Miss BLACK NSU? Not only is this discriminating, racist, sexist etc. it is also not politically correct. Black? What happened to African American? I am constantly being brainwashed with this PC BS, isn't this a hurt to their cause?
The second e-mail I received really made me stop in my tracks. It was an invite for NSU's Sextival: Sex Education week. I know what some may be thinking "what is the big deal about sex education week?" Well nothing, sex education is a very important thing (to the right age group of course). Learning how to prevent STD's and pregnancy is life saving information to both the participants and potential unborn fetuses. The problem I had with the e-mail was what followed the title in the body: Students who attend will enjoy this drag show!! Wait...what? Drag Show? What does a drag show have to do with sex education? After a few minutes I began to wonder how this is being funded. Is it being paid for with my tuition dollars? Are the parents sending their 17-19 year old right out of high school students to college getting this same e-mail? My guess would be probably not. Or even better is this being paid for by some federal funding? I have no problem with drag shows. I have attended one at a bar with a gay friend of mine and a fairly good time, but I never thought I would get a an invitation to one from an education establishment. I guess even at the age of 27 i'm getting too "old" for our "progressive" society.
