Another great idea that a University has come up with, this time it is Loyola. They offer a campus club where you can admit to being racist and complain about racism. Keep in mind this is a "segregated" club.

Ramblers Analyzing whiteness is the clubs name, it is segregated to only those who identify as white. The club allows anger and confusion about institutional racist to be discussed and don't forget white privilege.


The segregated “affinity group,” called Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness, allows all students “who self-identify as White” to talk about their “anger and confusion about institutional racism” and to confess “guilt and hope about internalized racism.” Members can also “examine what it means to be White” and “begin the journey of operating in solidarity with others and their privilege.”


But keep in mind to join the Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness you need to attend 6-2 hour workshops (white privilege, safe spaces and cycles of oppression) and undergo an application process, this is a closed group after all.


Students interested in joining Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness can’t just decide to start showing up at meetings. No, no.

Like other white affinity groups in the United States — such as, say, the white supremacist organization American Vanguard — Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness is a closed group.
Members must undergo an application process and take part in half a dozen two-hour workshops on topics including white privilege, safe spaces and cycles of oppression, according to Campus Reform.

Who cares? Does this affect you in any way, shape, or form? If not then stop complaining about it because it just makes you come out looking like the crybaby you claim other people are being.

Based on the application process and prerequisites, it would seem that anyone with a functioning brain would be excluded.

Lol. Pathetic.

Hmm. If this trend continues Western higher education will be worthless, and the degrees will be glorified toilet paper (some already are).

Um, it's none of your business, point blank. How other people raise their children is their business, not yours. Stop trying to control what other people can or cannot participate in.

I don't agree with church but you don't see me going around complaining about how other people choose to live their lives.

What an asinine response...

Higher Education has already become watered down in regards to the grading system and peer interaction, but now you want to validate their attempt at Social Engineering..?

Fool.

Social engineering? I didn't know this was mandatory, I thought it was voluntary. No one is forcing people to attend this.

I'm just posting a thread on ATS, I really find it odd you think I am against it.

Oh, I find it funny that someone would make it their business to tell me it isn't my business.

Circular logic is amusing.

Are you saying this is a good idea?

Whether we agree with this or not is quite irrelevant.

What we should support is the discussion taking place on the issue(s).

Personally, I think it's stupid, but there are people out there that need a place to discuss their internal thoughts/feelings and I would rather it take place in that sort of environment than have it manifest itself on the streets.

Communication being perpetuated in any situation which allows it to occur freely should never be shot down and if you read the actual source, it's intent is noble.

Well your "Tissue? Cry Baby..." meme pretty much implies that you are against it. There's nothing odd about pointing out the obvious.

This is the future of our nation.

At this rate, I'll never be able to retire because weak little sissies won't be able to handle the real world.

Do you think social engineering requires voluntary participants?

That's the point. When you can convince someone to do something through consent you have complete control over them.

If a safe space is what they need to get over their supposed guilt then hey, they pays their money, they should get their money's worth.

Meanwhile, I'll laugh at their foolishness.
