Hey, it’s not like she’ll be there to talk about geography! She’ll be there to talk about … racist veterinarians? Racist animals?

Is there anything these ass clowns aren't infiltrating? https://t.co/AZlLIUwQsz

Not much, apparently.
The race grievance industry has an unending ability to employ particular people in just about any venue imaginable. Because we're all racists, and we all need to learn it, get our heads right, and make amends. https://t.co/OQLmHLpT2h

Amazingly, this is real.
I know medical schools are headed down this path as well. It's going to cost a lot of lives before we go back to just teaching science and not race-huckstering. https://t.co/wFO0JOOrwc

Inviting NHJ to a Veterinary event is the equivalent to inviting Joy Behar to a conference about neurosurgery or something https://t.co/v0JI6riF2O

On the other hand (or paw):
This woman's grift is somewhat fascinating, while also completely laughable.

OK, good point. So maybe it makes a little bit of sense …
