University’s ‘Whiteness Forum’ takes ‘critical look at whiteness’

Students at Cal State San Marcos on Thursday hosted a “Whiteness Forum” as part of a communications class they are enrolled in, setting up more than a dozen displays that highlighted what they contend is how white privilege has oppressed people of color in a variety of ways.

During the two-hour event, students who created the displays talked to guests about their projects, explaining their studies and quizzing passersby on facts and figures relating to race. One group had guests spin the “Wheel of Whiteness.” Another passed out “gentrification is the new colonialism” stickers.

The syllabus for the class states the course seeks to examine “whiteness as a historical, social, political and ideological ‘invention’ with a long trajectory within the United States and in the world.” The syllabus defines whiteness “as a system of power based on racist ideology maintained discursively, institutionally, and materially.”

University’s ‘Whiteness Forum’ takes ‘critical look at whiteness’

Ok..wow...where do we start??

First off are they still doing the #Calexit?
Because if so I'd be willing to send California money to leave my beautiful country…
It's like Civil War medicine, saw off the rotten leg so it doesn't infect the rest of the body...

So where was I..?? Oh yeah, whiteness… LOL
Jesus liberals....really??
Imperialism is bad now too?? Really..LOL

I feel like liberals have become illiterate and completely ignorant of history with this obsurdity...

Imperialism saw American exceptionalism exported throughout the world…
It saw the greatest governing system ever instituted infect the world like a virus...
A virus of republicanism which would see the nepotistic old worlds converted to meritocracies...
And that's to say nothing of the Stone Age cultures we elevated to the standards of the High West..

You have to understand the current progressive agenda is to use their thought police and redefine words to make them change in meaning…
For instance, in this case "whiteness" is used in place of "Western"...

Let me put it another way, while America was splitting the atom much of the world was barely smelting iron(let alone mass producing steel through the Bessemer process)

One only need to look to Idi Amin's rule to see the difference between Imperial dominion and local societies without the oversight of a high West civilization...

So while countries throughout the Middle East and Southeast Asia govern at the behest of a magic god in the sky we bring in the light of science and high-mindedness to their backwards religious zealotry…

I wish I could take these liberal idiots and plant them in an Islamo-fascist society and see how long their contempt for Western imperialism lasts…

Again, let's hope California exits our great union and we cut free from that albatross which serves as a vortex for our tax money and the last bastion of liberalism in our electoral college…

I bet if they had set up a wheel of blackness there would be race riots over it by now.

I vote that this nonsense should stop, I've seen more racist bollocks in the last four years than in my entire life time before then, and now we've got people who think being white is a bad thing.
It's not like you choose your race, people...

Those kids are going to need somebody to blame when they can't get jobs with degrees in philosophy and gender studies.
Any guesses who that will be? Whites....

So now been white and debating whiteness is a school class?

It sounds to me like promoting racial instigation and encouraging persecution of light skin people.

Hell very soon white people will have to start tanning their skin brown to look more acceptable.

What a joke

Been white skinned is a sin.

I read an interesting article this weekend regarding loans for college from private banks..

Essentially let the free market determine whose major is "worthy" of a loan...

Which means in basic terms, more engineers/scientists/businessmen and people with actual skills rather than a whole generation of art history majors and masters in fine arts...

Can you imagine if that 1 small 2 hour event had of been based on any other racial group and was negative the type of # storm we would have?

You get Black history month, Mexican pride parades and to make things even we now have the Whiteness forum.

So your saying anyone who sees an anti white agenda is basically an idiot and should be dismissed.
Can you name 1 time that you have heard white used in a positive tone when referring to race?

No, this class is a symptom of the larger disease.

The "class" itself is utter nonsense.

I get what you are saying.

I'm a liberal. But as a white blonde male in very liberal circles, I often wonder if it's the best environment for me, as more and more liberal employers and colleagues think it's okay to judge me negatively based on my appearance. I see it at my liberal job all of the time.

there is no disease.....your use of these constant hyperbolic phrases and words, have no value in critical-thinking or logical reasoning, but it does give you those "pats-on-the-back" here on ATS from the "righties", that you so covet.

Let me quote this again. Anybody want to tell us that that White guy isn't a representation of all conservatives, yet when somewhere on the planet when some liberal does something stupid it's representative of all liberals?


If you're older than 13 and everything is still viewed in black or white with no middle, you've gone wrong somewhere.

He murdered Christians while at church...tell me again why he would be classified as a Christian extremist...

And explain with small words..remember I'm a conservative so my brain is small and education non-existent...
