There is a similar paradox on the flip side, although it hasn't been around for 100 years -- only maybe the last 6 years. The belief that the enlightenment is a hidden form of racism. I see it all over the place.

"only maybe the last 6 years"
The Enlightenment=racism meme was already up and running when I was at university, so it's been a good deal more than 6 years. Perhaps it's only in the last 6 it's gone beyond the campus. I always thought it was horrifying. A non-trivial factor in why I decided not to stay in academe.
