College Launches Study Group About ‘Depravity of Whiteness’

St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, must think white men are terrible racists and sexists, because the college initiated a “study group” for “those who most often exhibit racist and sexist behavior—white males.”

As Campus Reform reports, a campus-wide email was sent to all students and faculty, urging whites explicitly to attend four sessions on privilege so they can “begin to be self-critical.”

The email started by accusing white men of the usual litany of evils, plus ripping the capitalist system:

“We will read about and discuss the privilege of white people (especially white males) patriarchy, sexism and racism in the neoliberal capitalist empire of the United States.”

The email continued:

This is a group where those who most often exhibit racist and sexist behavior–white males–can begin to be self-critical of the very dangerous, brutal, and depraved hierarchical pathologies of superiority, supremacy, and inferiority handed down to us by white Euro-American institutions.

White men aren’t that evil, are they?

According to the email, they certainly are:

“The main topic for discussion will be an ongoing one: How do we deal with the depravity of whiteness and the brutality of masculinity? How can we get to the root of this problem?”

The email issues a warning, too:

“Warning: the discussions will be graphic and contain graphic material.”

Campus Reform discovered the email was sent to the student and faculty listservs for SJC’s Santa Fe campus from the email address of one Maggie Reitz-Wells, although it is unclear who actually sent the email. Campus Reform reports that Reitz-Wells may be an employee in the Office of Student Life. Campus Reform attempted to contact her without success, but instead heard from Assistant Dean Jan Arsenault, who asked, “Who are you and how did you obtain a copy of an email sent in-house?”

After Campus Reform explained how the site obtained a copy of the email, Arsenault would only say she was “not interested” in commenting.

St. John’s is following in the footsteps of Portland State University, where in 2015 professor Rachel Sanders held a  “White Privilege” course, whose course description stated, “Whiteness is the lynchpin of structures of racial meaning and racial inequality in the United States,” adding “to preserve whiteness is to preserve racial injustice.”

Good Grief Gurty.

Seriously?

So  professors give lectures now that being WHITE and/or MALE means racial and social inequality. Oh and then there are the rants about all whites working and forking over their paychecks to the liberal/radical Blacks.

Time to defund ALL colleges and universities folks.  Spend that money to pay down our national debt. Let those serious about being educated in fields apprentice themselves to those who are leaders in the field after a two-year college or trade school diploma.  That would save a chunk of student loans and actually accomplish a hell of a lot more for the world.

    After my daughter FINALLY left home, i decided to enroll in a formal education.
    I was shocked! Most of the professors “believed every book” WITHOUT any form of research to find out if something is true or false.
    I always sat on the front row of the class room. Finally, I had to move to the back of the classroom. Why? The majority of the professors were very liberal. They belie4ve everything that is said in a “text book.” Why? I didn’t want them seeing my jaw drop; OR, rolling of my eyes as to say, “You are idiots!”

    I had gone to the library to researcfh something. I was shocked! I ran an article that stated: “Teachers ande most college professors are about 11 yrs old mentally/emotionally.” That information was a real eye opener!

    I had serious problems in college. I went after retiring from the Navy. One of my professors – Alan Nassar – stated he had to teach Marxism to counteract the capitalist propaganda we had been fed all our lives. When challenged, he admitted he had not only never been to a Marxist country, but had never in his whole life been outside Washington State. When I pointed out that I had been in Marxist countries, he said that they weren’t really marxist because the capitalists would not let them practice “true Marxism”. He was quite put out when I asked the class which they would rather believe ‘ someone who had never been there and wrote as book based on theory, or people who had actually lived their and risked their lives to escape.

    I learned an important fact from this story: Muslim males are white! Who is leading the world in forced sex these days? Muslim males. What group is more racist and intolerant than any other? Muslim males. So using basic deductive logic, Muslim males must be white guys. Guess I gotta adjust the contrast control on my video monitor so they don’t look so dusky in the news videos ….
