Don't forget she lied to get a job at the NAACP. And was fired for lying to the NAACP about being black (she is "white"). That's right she was fired for saying she ID'ed as being black.

Lesson this is all crap meant to separate us into sub groups. Control.


Yes, but who are we to tell someone they aren't what they identify as?

Shouldn't this be a mental health question? Maybe we should have another organization like PETA, only call it PETI (People for the Ethical Treatment of Identity)....LOL!!!!

Good lord. It's a workshop, not a segregation mandate.

Get a grip, people. It's like your all just waiting to bark at anything that threatens your sense of the status quo.

I didn't know I had to ID myself.

I tell ya, for so many people wanting to be treated equally, they sure go out of their way to be treated differently.


I just identify as a meat popsicle.

Hot damn!

Kennesaw recruited me out of high school to play baseball there (I wasn't heavily recruited, obviously - lol).

Guess I dodged a bullet!

Here's a thought.

Continually pointing out peoples differences doesn't build tolerance.

It's just negative reinforcement.

Build bridges instead of burning them.

Someone could say some people are waiting to jump in and defend segregation. I am not for segregation.

Correct, and I feel your frustration. They know not what they do as their reading comprehension has been blinded by political and cultural hatred.

The event, a workshop called “Being, Becoming and Fostering Allies: Building Relationships Across Privilege,” was taught by two psychology professors and one grad student from the University of Massachusetts, as well as a Kennesaw State University professor.

In it, students learned about becoming an ally for less privileged people, as well as “the essential roles of self-reflection, cultural humility, and re-engagement after failures.”
OP Source
I trust these psychology professors are attempting to teach these students how to work together. We could all use a good dose of humility from time to time, it can be an excellent teacher.

And here is another thought, in order to try and fix a problem one must first understand what the problem is. There are many that don't think racial segregation and discrimination still exits in America. Perhaps we could give the benefit of doubt to these psychology professors.

Obviously identity politics is a euphemism for tribalism and racism, and an excuse to engage in it.

If you are wondering where all the white supremacists went, look no further than the identity politicians of today. Anyone who says a person needs to attend a "privilege workshop" because he is white is engaging in white supremacy, which is ironic given that it is those who pretend they are anti-racist espousing such absurdities.

Here's the ticket: don't identify as a these outdated and outmoded racial identities. They say nothing about you outside of what color your parents were. The term "racist" was once used to describe someone who believed that the species could be divided into races, and it is always that core belief that underpins the rhetoric of all racists today. It's time to do away with that belief.

The only reason it's a 'problem' is because a certain group continually try to manufacture it in to one.

Bigotry has many forms in this country, and it not limited to 'race' which is a misnomer to begin with.
