Shakespeare: To White or not To Be White!

Somehow when I want to stop writing for the day, an article or a piece of news comes along that somehow wants to give me eye cancer. Eye Cancer that will rot away the very fiber of my calm attitude. But I’m not so mad, because somehow, they want to cancel Shakespeare. How many times do I have to tell you Liberals that your war on culture shouldn’t go beyond someone who has impressed a massive amount of people, but somehow your little BLM attitude will make the world of pain and suffering go away if you remove Shakespeare from your curriculum. 

According to the Washington Times, “This is about white supremacy and colonization,” declared the teachers who founded #DisruptTexts, a group that wants staples of Western literature removed or subjected to withering criticism” (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/feb/15/woke-teachers-want-shakespeare-cut-curriculum-abou/). 

“A growing number of educators are … coming to the conclusion that it’s time for Shakespeare to be set aside or deemphasized to make room for modern, diverse, and inclusive voices,” said the essay, titled “To Teach or Not to Teach: Is Shakespeare Still Relevant to Today’s Students?” (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/feb/15/woke-teachers-want-shakespeare-cut-curriculum-abou/).

So, now we’re going after the dead people, who can’t defend themselves. This is lunacy at the mere simplest level. Banning controversial books and labeling them as “racists” returns as teachers are an embarrassment. 

Yes, I knew insufferable English teachers were bad, but at least they didn’t try to censor and take books away. 

The moral of the story is that policing language and bad think will not erase bad think. I am sure this would have made Shakespeare angry as much of modernity rejects individuality. Being white has nothing to do with individuality either, but how you handle happiness too.

Individualism helps students empathize, and become better people. If you want to cancel Shakespeare, and not mention he wrote “Othello” you might want to reexamine your thoughts and privilege. 

As Shakespeare famous play said in Hamlet, Act 1, Scene III, “To thine own self be true.” I stand by that, and being yourself is part of Shakespeare’s beliefs. Remember two teenagers with warring families that fell in love with each other? Romeo and Juliet. They pushed out against there families and wanted to be together. That’s individualism, doomed, yes, but still. Not White Supremacy. Hamlet is fighting fate and tells ghosts to fuck off, as he follows his own path to this death (That’s a gross representation of the story, but it’s humorous). That’s individualism. Not White Supremacy. Leftists, and not just them, but everyone could learn something from this. Individualism creates art, not the other way around, and taking Shakespeare away only creates more problems in academia. But banning a famous dead man, like Shakespeare, is peak 2021 cringe. I think I’m going to pull out more Shakespeare this year. Because if they want to cancel a dead man, they should go to the morgue and check up on there curriculum and see if it has a pulse, too.
