Posted on 11/20/2015 4:30:08 AM PST by HomerBohn
The politically correct culture that has infected our college campuses has finally reached the apex of absurdity. Schools like the University of Vermont are now hosting their very own re-education camps, to teach their Caucasian students about the racial biases they never knew they had.
Between the 13th and 15th of November, the school ran their "Examining White Privilege" retreat for all students who "self-identified as white." According to the description of the event, it was designed to give students the "opportunity to conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lens," and "recognize and understand white privilege from an individual experience." These students were asked "tough" questions like "What does it mean to be white?" and "How does whiteness impact you?"
Not surprisingly, some of the intellectual zombies who attended the retreat gave it rave reviews. "I enjoyed the Examining White Privilege retreat because it provided a safe space to learn about yourself and others and how we experience and understand privilege and systems of oppression," wrote one student.
So much for the post racial society that liberals have been clambering for all these years. Rather than a society where everyone has moved past their racial differences, we now run camps where students volunteer to flagellate themselves over their perceived whiteness. I can't imagine seeing this PC culture become more ridiculous than this, but I've been wrong before.
When the worm turns, and I assuredly feel it will, it won't be pretty for the repulsive leftists.
Along these lines, there needs to be a redneck re-education camp for metro sexual college admin types. This camp would help limit some of this foolishness.
So they had a course on how to oppress minorities?
If I were an undergraduate I’d refuse to go. If they insisted I’d ask if it was listed in my catalog. If it is not listed a requirement for graduation They’d get a big fight.
I would go away somewhere else. Along with my tuition money.
I am afraid that the reintroduction of segregation and repatriation to Africa may need to be considered.
Why don’t these socialist/communist-loving fascists call these “retreats” what they are... re-education camps?
The problem is that far too many of these institutions, including the Whitehouse, are in the hands of 60s, 70s, and 80s protesters.
Just like the “transgender” nonsense, no one in charge has the nerve to tell these people they are idiots and to grow up or just go away.
It is only getting worse.
They imagine that the more industrious but more compliant Oriental groups will provide the freebies.
The “school” sent the honky kids to re-education camps and they actually went willingly? They sure don’t seem very bright to me. They obviously didn’t get anything out of their first 12 years of education, how the hell is going to “college” going to help them?
Each year the City of Indianapolis hosts Black Expo. Could this be considered micro-aggression? Triggering? A local morning radio show used to parody advertise the “White Trash Expo” at the same time.
Where are the parents of these White students? They must be stupid Democrats who don’t realize that their children are being brain washed into accepting whatever the government says unquestioningly.
When the government tells them that their parents need to be given a suicide pill for the common good, perhaps those parents will regret letting government become God in the minds of their children.
what the hell does that even mean???
Morelocks, awaiting dinner.
White privilege = hate speech
Actually, for decades Whites have been the oppressed in this culture. Affirmative action in education and hiring has established minority privilege and this is the result, a bunch of minorities who now prove their inability to benefit from perqs they experience and become productive and civilized. Rather, they are still whining and demanding more and blaming and refusing to look at their own failures caused by their own acts.
Whites need to tell them to grow up.
...there needs to be a redneck re-education camp for metro sexual college admin types....
With special sessions in NASCAR, religion, and reloading.
The Left has already achieved the denutification of the upper economic tier of the white race.
