NJ University Offers Course Studying Beyonce

CNS News, January 30, 2014


The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University is offering a course called “Politicizing Beyonce.”

Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the university’s online news site that he is using Beyonce’s career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics.

The class supplements an analysis of Beyonce’s videos and lyrics with readings from black feminists. {snip}


Georgetown University has a class called “The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z,” focusing on Beyonce’s rapper husband.

    next they’ll have a college course called “Justin Beiber: Deconstructing A Lame Wigger”.

    • D.B. Cooper

      I had Bieber pegged for what he was the moment he came out. If it doesn’t write its own songs, nor play an instrument, then it will be spit out by the big wigs once its near the end of puberty. Know your history. I’ve seen it happen many times.
      Anyone remember this washed up has been? (Pic: then and now)

      • Martel

        The second picture is an improvement.

        • AutomaticSlim

          He actually looks like a male in the second one.

        • Lagerstrom

          Did Charlie Manson look like the left picture when he was that young?

      • Puggg

        Just basically a recycled Donny Osmond.

      • Puggg

        Police chase Bieber:

      • Rhialto

        Justin Beeber is an ineffectual African-American wannabe. He might make a good subject of a 5 credit course for semi-professional college athleets.

      • Puggg

        Bieber’s plane on the way to the Super Bowl stopped because of weed.

        • LACounty

          That’s actually a pic of a SA concept passenger plane. They estimate it will be able to roll down an airstrip by 2035 with the help of the local witch-doctor and a quart of goat milk.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Hey…regardless, that Bieber kid is the hottest lesbian in the music industry…

      • AutomaticSlim

        Felix Unger’s son, right?

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Boy in a bubble…

        These panty wasted femboys are perfect examples of our people’s devolution to weak emasculation…

      • Lagerstrom

        What does Roger (You Better Get Used To It) Vodouris look like these days? I’m being a tad obscure here…

      • Lagerstrom

        He got into the junk.
        A disgrace to his family and people.

  • That’s nothing.

    Mizzou has a class on the relationship between Jay-Z and Kanye West. What Mizzou doesn’t do is investigate rape allegations of black football players against white swimmers that result in the victim committing suicide until ESPN comes to Columbia and blows the foul whistle.

    • So CAL Snowman

      If I’m not mistaken that “white” swimmer in question was actually a mulatto with a *surprise* black father. She was also dating a black male at the time of her rape.

      • You’re right. I took a closer look: The media are using a picture of her where she looks white on cursory glance.

        But it’s big news around here, simply because so many Missouri state politicians and the surrounding apparatchiks are Mizzou alumni. Of course there will be hearings, and of course they’ll dance around the truth.

        • So CAL Snowman

          The blacks that raped her probably thought she was a White girl though, as it seems that skin color is all the motivation they need to perpetrate their satanic violence. I mean that would look pretty silly in the black community, a bunch of black guys trying to revenge rape a White girl only to find out she has a biological black father. Whammy!

          • dukem1

            Nevertheless, a mans gotta get his freak on!

    • Berkeley Guy

      That’s nothing too. None of you really understand what kind of classes they offer here at Berkeley. I won’t even begin to tell you because your brain would implode or explode and neither would I do to you.

  • sbuffalonative

    Years ago, AR reported on a college course on the politics of ‘black hair’.

  • Jim Barlow

    Kevin Allred? Great.

    I’m sure this will be a highly educational experience, considering his respectable appearance and the solid course syllabus.

    • blight14

      ‘Allred’, hmmmm, let me ponder a guess about this one…..

      • Fathercoughlin

        Yep,me too.

    • Martel

      Students will pay of their debts for years to come to watch this Academic legend in action.

    • D.B. Cooper

      I had a feeling. I had a freaking feeling this nimrod was white.
      I’ll bet he doesn’t even like girls, and he would rather BE Beyoncé.

      • dukem1

        He’s not a nimrod, he’s a dipstick.

      • Nathanwartooth

        We need a name for the curious race of people who are not Jewish, hate whites and are white skinned.

    • Kenner

      His ear looks surgically altered. It’s been done before.

      • A cauliflower ear would be a good sign, but . . . naw . . .not this flamer.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          He’s teaching a college course on Beyoncé. Nuff said.

          Jeez…I hate how the spell correct thing automatically adds an accent mark to that idiotic name.


    • MBlanc46

      Ah jeez, I wonder whether the parents who are borrowing money to send their kids to Rutgers realize that this, um, individual is corrupting them with this lunacy.

  • bigone4u

    Given that the instructor is male, I suspect that the focus of the class will be on Bouncy’s (or whatever she calls herself) large, African-style bottom, and that there will be much video and many photographs illustrating that big bottom.

    • blight14

      I doubt Comrade Allred is interested in much beyond her ‘nifty makeup secrets’ and ‘extensive collection of gowns’……….

      • bigone4u

        Got it. If he goes transgender, he’ll want a booty just like hers, I’m sure.

  • blight14

    “Kevin Allred”, what are the odds?

    • D.B. Cooper

      Well, you could email him. I found his address. However, I am too busy making fun of Rutgers at various sites where students and graduates alike are likely to read my two cents.

      • ncpride

        I was reading this story on another sight, and people were livid in the comments section.

  • MekongDelta69

    Is ‘Kevin Allred’ Gloria (feminazi) Allred’s kid?

    And just why is HE teaching ‘Women’s and Gender Studies’ class? Hmm? Hmm? Inquiring AmRen minds need to know these things.

    And just how closely is he going to be ‘studying’ Beyonce? Stalking 101 maybe?

    Methinks Georgetown should really change the name of their class to:
    “The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Idiocy of Jay-Z”

    • Oil Can Harry

      You don’t have to worry about Beyonce or any other woman being stalked by that flamer.
      And no, he doesn’t appear to be related to that shrill shyster Gloria Allred.

    • dukem1

      MD69 – Oh come on now you…it’s not nice to make fun of people…
      You gotsta git yer “learn” on so as you can represent your understanding of the thirst for knowledge attained by the childrens who be the future.

  • Classes like these are shameful, and take up resources that could be useful in real educational endeavors.

    Not everyone will work at NASA (myself included), but there should be other options available to students who would like to learn something of value.

    Q: What did the college graduate say to the truck driver?
    A: Do you want fries with that?

    • D.B. Cooper

      Once upon a time, the first 2 years would get you an associate’s degree, and that was where the practical skills were learned. The bachelor’s degree was more broad, and that was why many jobs don’t care what your major was.
      My five jobs, post BS, didn’t care what I majored in. Rest assured, I didn’t major in any type of “Ethnic Studies”.
      I seem to recall a Sociology class about women, taught by an aging butch. I got a B by giving her what she wanted to read. The papers I wrote in that class, you could’ve sworn they were written by Gloria Steinham herself.

      • Berkeley Guy

        I understand your need in ‘giving her what she wanted to read’ as I also felt I had to do that at times when the teachers were extremely biased. It’s a sad education system, but people like you and I make due by doing such things and absorbing more useful knowledge elsewhere.

    • Fathercoughlin

      When Obama and his idiot Holder get through with America it will be: What did the college student say to the truck driver? You do me its $20. I do you its 40,comprende?

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    The modern university is both a cultural marxist indoctrination center and a place to separate students from their parent’s (or government’s) cash. Courses like this exist to turn future generations into multicultural fanatics and immigration enthusiasts devoted to the destruction of the white race in America.

    • John Ulfsson

      And their parents are none the wiser.

    • Spartacus

      Stop wasting your money sending your kids there (or going there yourself if you’re a student) . Do something cheaper and much more useful, like joining the army .

      • FransSusan

        No, don’t tell kids to join the army. The military industry sacrifices the young military guys/girls for their money-making projects.

  • D.B. Cooper

    What a freaking waste of time and credits. A bachelor’s degree is more or less 40 classes. Guys in college should be using their free electives on either a second language, basic automotive repair, basic household plumbing or electrical wiring.
    So, the prettiest that race has to offer still has to wear someone else’s hair, and won’t thank the white race for where her looks truly came from?

    • What a sellout.
      A real African would adorn her mandible with plates.

    • AutomaticSlim

      Regarding the picture, two words come to mind.
      Fat & ugly.

    • Fathercoughlin

      Ha! You thinking of taking a stroll across the tracks,D.B.?? Beyonce is NOT pretty. Whe she was very young–I saw an old pre-fame pic–yes she looked pretty. But like Whitney Houston,once she left that teenaged not-yet-mature spot,and once she matured,her features seemed to lose their softness and juvenality,to get harder and more striking. Yech! WH was not attractive a’tall past 18 or so,same with our dear Bey Bey!!!

  • Druid

    only here in the people’s republic of new jersey…

  • cloudswrest

    How detailed is this study? Are there lots of close up photographs?

  • Luca

    Is there no limit to how low academia in this country can sink?

    • shmo123

      I often ponder that myself Luca. I wonder if embarrassing them would do it. Publish the instructors name and pic in the local rag, along with whatever pathetic description goes along to justify such intellectual twaddle, and let the taxpayers know they’re paying for it. Rutgers, being a state institution, must get plenty of money from the NJ taxpayer. Then again maybe I’m delusional in thinking the average person would give a damn as to how his or her tax dollars are being spent.

  • John K

    Beyoncé has got to be the ultimate magical negro. She isn’t talented, and can’t sing; it’s just a bunch of screaming and shrieking. She and her moronic husband, Jay-Z, even had a crown and royal coat made for their newborn deviant. Talentless AND arrogant.

    • Magician

      I am pretty convinced that roughly 70% of all her profit and fame come from her breasts and butt

      • Fathercoughlin

        After her infamous Super Bowl appearance (LOL) a picture appeared of her taken as she sang and gyrated,and around the crotch area,something was exposed. Can I say a labia?

    • Lagerstrom

      White people are sucking this crap up in droves!

    • FransSusan

      Nothing but typical for third worlders.

  • Magician

    I can imagine some of the research assignment questions

    – Suggest the best color for her hair and state your reasoning
    – Who has the best butt, J Lo, Beyonce or Gaga and support your argument logically

  • MBlanc46

    I only vaguely know who she is (and care less) but I’m sure that a close analysis of her “career” will make everyone a better person.

  • WR_the_realist

    Nothing shows how dumbed down our universities have become more than the courses offered. I’d be embarrassed to be a student at NJ University. At least that sounds like a course where the diversity could get an “A”.

  • NeanderthalDNA

    Will there be a step show?

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    This is no longer a first world country. This is no longer a Western country. America is now a fugazi. Don’t agree? Prove me wrong.

  • Magician

    The school should arrange and start giving out a scholarship called “Beyonce’s Butt Scholarship”

    • Puggg

      I’m surprised it’s not part of Common Core already.

  • TXCriollo

    Ive been out of college for 3 years how did it turn into this,

    • Katherine McChesney

      What college did you attend?

      • Fathercoughlin

        Hard Knocks

  • Lagerstrom

    Well…she’s not very black! I’d say Obama is blacker then her.

  • Magician

    All gangster rappers have produced some truly garbage music as well

    All they sing is “Nigga lemme tell you about this girl with gigantic booty I banged yesterday”

    All they try to do is try their best to rhyme as if a rhyme is something very innovative and difficult to make

    What happened to R and B musicians who produced some truly beautiful music such as Boyz II Men Toni Braxton Vanessa Williams

    Do you want a little joke….

    “Why did Michael Jackson call Boyz II Men?

    He thought it was a delivery service”

  • Magician

    Eye Candies have always been there….

    Christina Aguilera
    Britney Spears
    Spice Girls

    And maybe I am a biased heterosexual male but I don’t mind eye candies

  • Magician

    I am a big fan of Bon Jovi, Eagles and Goo Goo Dolls

  • 2eRep

    Dude, where is my PHD? Everyday I am subjected to huge, mouthy, ignorant negro sows pretending they know how to do their jobs.

  • Susie

    Why Beyoncé?
    Why not Halle Berry?

  • Kenner

    There are two Diana Ross fans here that feel this list is incomplete.

    • Kenner

      As Marvin Gaye once said about Diana, ‘She’ll out rehearse you, out dress you, and out perform you…’

  • Berkeley Guy

    This. And other countries in general must be laughing at us. Don’t worry about math and science–just study whatever, and dream of being a ‘star.’ Meanwhile our PhDs are being given out to more and more foreigners along with tenure-track positions at Universities nationwide.
