Wisconsin University Joins Campaign Saying It’s ‘Unfair’ to be White
National Review ^ | 2/13/2013

Posted on 02/13/2013 6:49:20 PM PST by Altura Ct.

The University of Wisconsin–Superior became the latest school to join the Unfair Campaign, which looks to bring attention to the “unfairness” of being white. The campaign’s slogan is “It’s hard to see racism when you’re white” and claims that “society was set up for us.” Below is a PSA ad:

A UWS spokeswoman told Campus Reform that the university is sponsoring the campaign because it is an “opportunity on our campus to talk about all privilege and to create conversation” as well as to “learn and to grow together.” The university is planning to hold events with the Unfair Campaign and have professors discuss the project.

Last year, the University of Minnesota Duluth, which is less than ten miles away from UWS, dropped its sponsorship of the Unfair Campaign, saying that it was “divisive” and “alienating” to the student body. Interestingly, other institutions in the Duluth/Superior metro area are also involved with the Unfair Campaign, including Lake Superior College, the City of Duluth mayor’s office Human Rights Commission and American Indian Commission, St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services, and several area churches.

Really, I got news for these morons, it’s hard for me not to see racism directed at me only because of my skin color! Hell I don’t know how many times I’ve had to verbally slap down some person of color going off on me and point out to them that I’m first generation and my people didn’t do jack to them. I’m tired that just because I’m considered “White” certain people “believe” that I owe them something. Nobody ever gave my parents or me a damn thing, we had to earn it, and that’s OK because it’s the American way!

If its unfair to be white, can I get reparations for being part of this race against my will?

Most of this stuff is being done and said to disrupt. It’s just part of Obama’s new organization.

Well, yeah, it’s unfair being white when you consider other people get extra credit for being born a different color and qualified white people get passed over in order to hire or grant admission to lesser-qualified non-whites.

I can report as citizen of this region that this “campaign” is not going over well with the citizens here.

It is putrid and we spit it out.

This nonsense will continue as long as there is tenure at tax supported institutions. Taxpayers should not be funding the Left in academia or anywhere.

The worst part is the fact that the best and brightest students who actually do belong in college have to slog through this cesspool of pointless filth.

It wouldn’t be this way without the taxpayers being forced to fund the deadwood.

There is NO LIMIT to the absurdity and irrationality of cultural marxists. If we wish to remain free of the tyrany that they have in store for us, we had best be prepared to resist them with all our might.

This ends one way, the world must be cleansed of whites before we can move forward.Fairness begins whenwhites lives end.Think Jew,Kulak,Christian or other undesirables standing in the way of true socialism. When whites become a minority it’s where it’s going to go.

Hillsdale college is one of the finest learning institutions (of its type) in the land and it has a student body of around 1300.

The difference with Hillsdale college is that they accept no federal dollars. Its very expensive but they produce the best liberal arts education money can buy. (Liberal arts in the traditional sense)

White students just need to claim they are American Indian as did Elizabeth Warren. Their claim isn’t subject to review or challenge.

Correct. The number of ‘educated’ people blacks largely but a lot of whites especially white single females in academia or the ‘helping’ professions do ascribe to the notion that the world would be much better off with a lot fewer white men. Nothing is hated more than straight white men with traditional attitudes. Libertarians ought be very careful in their oft repeated contempt for mostly white soldiers being killed or wounded in the nation's wars. Lots of ‘got what they deserved’ comments on Libtard websites. Hating white men is not the exclusive purview of lefties.

And while you're at it, refuse any and all donations from white alumni, and gifts from white-owned companies, trusts, and foundations.

In the name of political correctness, I think it is about time for the images below to be modified to properly reflect America's multi-cultural diversity, the same way New York City modified the statue of the three white firefighters who planted the flag at Ground Zero in 2001.

The nation has been surrendered to hordes of invading locusts with scarcely a fight.
America is dead and gone. The Democrats won. Congratulations to them.
