Here’s What Woke LSU Spends Your Tax Dollars On

Everybody’s all excited about LSU football’s impressive win over Florida on Saturday, and we’ll have something on that tomorrow, but it’s more important that people recognize that Brian Kelly’s team is not the sum total of what’s happening on Louisiana’s flagship university campus.

LSU is a woke disaster. We’ve only chronicled some of the nightmarish idiocy being perpetrated by its leadership, largely out of sight of the public and without any accountability at all from elected officials or even the university’s donors.

If you’re one of the latter, or of the former for that matter, ask yourself if this is a reasonable use of taxpayer or donor dollars…

LSU Reilly Center, Loyola School of Communication and Design to Partner on Racism Series, Host Conversation on Black Horror Film Pathology

BATON ROUGE—LSU’s Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs is thrilled to announce the School of Communication and Design at Loyola University New Orleans as the newest Racism Dismantling the System series partner. Loyola’s School of Communication and Design will make its debut in the next event in the series, “Looking in a Mirror: How Black Horror Film Pathology Supports Racist Tropes,” on Oct. 25 at 3:30 p.m. CT.

In season five, episode two of the series, experts will investigate the popularity of Black horror films and discuss the danger of plots and scripts that perpetuate harmful stereotypes of BIPOC people as disadvantaged or oppressed. Panelists will share ways viewers can be entertained while still being advocates. Panelists are as follows:

  • Ty Lawson, Moderator, The Marion M. and John S. Stokes Visiting Professor in Race and Culture in Media, Loyola University’s School of Communication and Design
  • Geretta Geretta, Writer | Director | Actress
  • Dagmawi Abebe (Dag), Director
  • Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour, Writer | Director

Sheryl Kennedy Haydel, Ph.D., director and associate professor at the School of Communication and Design at Loyola University New Orleans, is a former contributor to the series and played an instrumental role in establishing the partnership.

“We’re very excited to join the Racism: Dismantling the System series. This collaboration underscores our commitment to fostering ethical practitioners and leaders, as well as the Jesuit ideals of truth, service and justice,” Haydel said. “As a previous partner, I understand the incredible impact these conversations can have, and we’re proud to join the Reilly Center to not only facilitate critical dialogue, but also bring about real change in our communities.”

The episode will be hosted using Zoom and broadcast live on the Reilly’s Center Facebook page. Admission is free, but you must register in advance on Eventbrite to receive the Zoom meeting access code. The episodes will also be recorded and uploaded to the Manship School’s YouTube channel.

The School of Communication and Design is one of two schools housed in Loyola’s College of Music and Media and strives to educate students to become intellectual, ethical and creative practitioners and leaders in journalism, advertising, design, filmmaking and public relations.

Loyola’s School of Communication and Design joins the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs, Southern University and A&M College’s Nelson Mandela College of Government and Social Sciences, Louisiana Budget Project, NAACP Louisiana State Conference and the LSU Office of Diversity & Inclusion on their mission to facilitate necessary conversations about past and present inequities that inspire solution-oriented actions for a more just, inclusive and equitable society.

For some context, this is only the latest in a whole series of symposia highlighting all the awful and terrible wrongs being visited by society on black people that LSU’s journalism school has put on.

This one jumps the shark in a hilarious way, in that it complains that black people are victimized by horror movie tropes which cast black people as victims. Can’t win for losing!

We’re big LSU fans here at the Hayride. We’re hoping Kelly, Matt McMahon, Kim Mulkey and Jay Johnson all win national championships in the next few years. But the leadership at the university is turning it into a woke clown college. Somebody needs to do something.

Perhaps Louisiana’s next governor will take an interest and end Woke LSU before there’s nothing left worth saving but the athletic department.
