The backlash against the University of Arizona hiring "social justice advocates," hourly employees who, as part of their duties, would be watching and reporting other students for "bias incidents," was swift and pointed. Arizona only responded by changing the creepy job title, which generated another round of criticism.
It appears that UCLA's team of "advocates" will spend less time spying on their classmates and reporting instances of thoughtcrime than Arizona's "advocates." Instead, UCLA's focus will be on really hammering home the "white men suck and should probably be dead" message. In case the students hadn't heard it yet that day.
A combination of tuition and taxpayer dollars will be funding an ideologically driven program that will tell a sizable population of those providing that funding that they're vile, evil beings responsible for all the ills of the world due to their DNA. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see just how horrible that is.
The University of California-Los Angeles is offering to pay students to serve as “Social Justice Advocates” who will “educate” their peers about “systems [of] oppression.”
The Social Justice Advocates program seeks students who want to help their classmates “navigate a world that operates on whiteness, patriarchy, and heteronormativity as the primary ideologies,” and comes with a quarterly stipend, the amount of which has yet to be determined.
“Social Justice Advocates will systems [of] oppression and how they intersect and build upon each other to maintain the status quo,” the description continues. “Most importantly individuals and the collective will be empowered through liberatory scholarship and practices and strengthening their emotional intelligence to create change within their spheres of influence.”
The application for the inaugural students asks aspiring Social Justice Advocates to explain their interest in social justice, list their preferred gender pronouns (such as “zi” and “hir”), and describe any experience they have in facilitating workshops on “social justice” issues.

I wish I could stop paying taxes to the Feds. But if I did they'd ruin my life even more quickly.
But if I dont, they'll ruin my kids lives...
But if I do it won't make a big difference.
What to do, what to do?
