WHAT? University Segregates Students by Race For Workshop On Privilege

Why is it that every time liberals in academia think they’re teaching people how not to be racist, they’re actually making the problem worse?

Why didn’t this university see anything wrong with segregating students by race?

College Puts White People in Separate Room For ‘Privilege Workshop’

When Kennesaw State University held an event last week on privilege and interracial relations, it asked “those who identify as white” to go to one room and “those who identify as people of color” to go to another.

“The goal of the workshop, which was led by an outside expert, was to foster learning and create an environment of understanding and support for one another,” said Kennesaw State University spokeswoman Tammy DeMel. “Attendees were asked to work together and then were invited to join the group with which they identify.”

The April 13 event “is being mischaracterized” as segregation, DeMel added.

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.

Why has higher education drifted so far from traditional scholarship?

And why do people still pay through the nose for it?
