VICTIMHOOD lessons: Law professor tells black students to claim “blackness” is a disability… instead of “I have a dream,” it’s now “I have a disability”

If any white person were to openly declare that having black skin is a disability, he or she would immediately be dubbed a racist and would probably end up blacklisted from the labor pool. But a black law professor from Fordham University in New York City has reportedly made such a claim as part of a new strategy to counter what she sees as “systemic racism” in American society.

In her own words, Kimani Paul-Emile believes that being black in the United States has a “disabling effect” on a person that’s “distinct from the effects of socioeconomic status.” In other words, she sees the color of one’s skin, apart from every other factor, as being inherently crippling whenever it isn’t white – so much so that having black skin should fall under the legal designation of a disability, in her view.

Published in the Georgetown Law Journal, a paper written by Paul-Emile argues that both civil rights law and Supreme Court jurisprudence have been ineffective in rooting out modern-day racial injustice. So the next step for black people is to resort to disability law, which Paul-Emile believes could be a more effective legal means to combat racism in society.

“Understanding Blackness as disabling brings to the fore a surprising new approach to addressing discrimination and systemic inequality that has been hiding in plain sight: disability law,” Paul-Emile writes in her lengthy and angry diatribe. “[I]t has failed to combat the predominant forms of discrimination that now harm minority populations: unconscious bias, stereotyping, and structural inequality.”

Paul-Emile: Racism is always there, even when people aren’t being racist, which means black people need special protections
