Law School Professor Pens Essay Explaining How Eclipse Is “Racist”

That’s at least the take of Brooklyn Law School professor Alice Ristroph, who used a staggering 4,544 words in The Atlantic to explaining why the phenomenon of the moon blocking the sun just wasn’t diverse enough for her tastes.

“On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon,” Ristroph writes. “The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people.”

I guess it is too much to hope that products of the US education system would recognize a literary device...

Yes - future eclipses should be banned and fined unless they are inclusive

I don't think it was called "great American Eclipse" based on demographics, rather on the path being right across the middle of the US....

But that's me...
