University Forces All Students To Say That All Whites Are Racist

University Forces All Students To Say That All Whites Are Racist
David Storobin, Esq. - 11/1/2007
The University of Delaware recently made a decision to subject its students to mandatory "treatment" ('treatment' is a term used by the university) where they learn that "all whites are racist", racism by the 'people of color' is impossible, and George Washington is merely a "famous Indian fighter, large landholder and slave owner".

The university requires that the students adopt highly specific university-approved views on issues ranging from politics to race, sexuality, sociology, moral philosophy, and environmentalism. Students are forced to attend training sessions, floor meetings, and one-on-one meetings with their Resident Assistants (RAs). The RAs who facilitate these meetings have received their own intensive training from the university, including a “diversity facilitation training”.

RAs are required to ask and students are forced to answer private questions such as “When did you discover your sexual identity?”

After the one-on-one meetings, RAs must then prepare reports on each student's cooperation and viewpoint, ranking them and the progress they've made during "treatment".

Students are not allowed to express disapproval of the "treatment" or of the questions that deal with their political views, sexuality and other private matters. Expressing disapproval will result in a negative report of the progress they've made during "treatment", which may result in punishment.

Students are forced to achieve "competency" as a goal of the "treatment". 'Competency' requires that “Students will recognize that systemic oppression exists in our society,” “Students will recognize the benefits of dismantling systems of oppression,” and “Students will be able to utilize their knowledge of sustainability to change their daily habits and consumer mentality.”

Student are also forced to take actions that outwardly indicate their agreement with the university’s ideology, such as displaying specific, school-approved door decorations and taking action by advocating for a social group that is defined as "oppressed" by the University.

The following are quotes from the booklet that students must learn, which was compiled by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

"A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination. (This does not deny the existence of such prejudices, hostilities, acts of rage or discrimination.)"—Page 3

——-

"REVERSE RACISM: A term created and used by white people to deny their white privilege. Those in denial use the term reverse racism to refer to hostile behavior by people of color toward whites, and to affirmative action policies, which allegedly give ‘preferential treatment’ to people of color over whites. In the U.S., there is no such thing as ‘reverse racism.’"—Page 3

——-

"A NON-RACIST: A non-term. The term was created by whites to deny responsibility for systemic racism, to maintain an aura of innocence in the face of racial oppression, and to shift responsibility for that oppression from whites to people of color (called "blaming the victim"). Responsibility for perpetuating and legitimizing a racist system rests both on those who actively maintain it, and on those who refuse to challenge it. Silence is consent."—Page 3

——-

"Have you ever heard a well-meaning white person say, ‘I’m not a member of any race except the human race?’ What she usually means by this statement is that she doesn’t want to perpetuate racial categories by acknowledging that she is white. This is an evasion of responsibility for her participation in a system based on supremacy for white people."—Page 8

——-

"The notion of indigenous people as more akin to animals than human beings is at the basis of U.S. policy toward Native Americans. In 1784 George Washington, famous Indian fighter, large landholder and slave owner, advised the Continental Congress that it would be cheaper for the new nation to buy up Indian land than to make war on Indian people for the land. If you make war, Washington cautioned, ‘the savage as the wolf’—both wild beasts of the forest—will retreat for awhile and then come back to attack you. Washington’s metaphor stuck. The young U.S. nation-state, and all sectors of European- American; began to view the Native American as a wild animal."—Page 10

If ever a question deserved to be answered with "When I fucked your sister"...:P

Seriously though, is there a source for that information? It sounds incredibly out there!

Was Ehrlich right about multiculturalism?
By Robert Holland

October 30, 2007

When he was governor of Maryland in 2004, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. stirred a hornet's nest when he denounced multiculturalism as "bunk" on a talk-radio show. Because many Americans believe multiculturalism merely means teaching children in a wholesome way about diverse cultures, Mr. Ehrlich drew heat.

Now, the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME), the main advocacy organization for multiculturalism, is coming to Baltimore to hold its 17th annual national convention tomorrow through Sunday.

Here is a perfect opportunity to examine the agenda and see if the former governor had a point.

School board members ought to be particularly interested, because they approve the doling out of taxpayers' money for K-12 teachers from every state to attend the NAME convention.

They ought to be welcome to sit in on any of the workshops and determine what multicultural messages their teachers are absorbing for use in the classroom.

The co-sponsors of multiculturalism's biggest gathering include several beneficiaries of tax money, including the Maryland affiliate of the National Education Association (a longtime NAME ally), George Mason University and even the Maryland State Department of Education.

School board members could start by attending one of the half- or full-day workshops on Halloween. Here are some of the choices from the NAME program:

• "The Unbearable Whiteness of Being: Dismantling White Privilege and Supporting Anti-Racist Education in Our Classrooms and Schools." Taught by a professor from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, this session "is designed to help educators identify and deconstruct their own white privilege and in so doing more deeply commit themselves to anti-racist teaching and critical multicultural teaching."

• "Talking About Religious Oppression and Unpacking Christian Privilege." This session, taught by a team of professors, "will examine the dynamics of Christian privilege and oppression of minority religious groups and nonbelievers as constructed and maintained on three distinct levels: individual, institutional and societal. A historical and legal lecturette will be presented and participants will engage in interactive learning modules."

• "Beyond Celebrating Diversity: Teaching Teachers How to be Critical Multicultural Educators." Taught by NAME regional director Paul Gorski, founder of the activist group EdChange, this session will start from the premise that multiculturalism's greatest danger "comes from educators who ostensibly support its goals, but whose work - cultural plunges, food fairs, etc. - reflects a compassionate conservative consciousness rather than social justice. This session focuses on preparing teachers, not for celebrating diversity, but for achieving justice in schools and society."

Workshops at NAME annual conventions (six of which I have attended since 1993) repeatedly advocate the teaching of "social justice." That term never seems to be defined, but its users simplify all American life as a saga of the oppressed vs. the oppressors. Skin color, national origin, gender, religion and sexual preference are among the qualities that put all individuals into one category or the other.

There is method in such vagueness. The great free-market economist Friedrich Hayek once observed that entire tomes on social justice never offer a definition. As Michael Novak elaborated in an article in the December 2000 edition of the journal First Things, the term becomes "an instrument of ideological intimidation for the purpose of gaining the power of legal coercion."

Not just in the daylong institutes but also in more than 150 smaller-group sessions that go on almost hourly throughout a NAME convention, presenters instruct teachers to go back to their schools and become social justice warriors. Those who are white are supposed to transcend their oppressor status by becoming change agents. Those who are Christian should feel just as guilty as the whites for all those their faith has victimized. Nothing but evil has come from the European cultures that led the way in America's founding.

It is not necessary to accept my contention that ideological indoctrination permeates the multiculturalists' deliberations. Go to www.NAMEorg.org and read the full convention program. Better yet, ask to attend sessions that are of particular interest to you. After all, your tax money is paying for them, and for the lessons that teachers bring back for your children.

Then, decide for yourself whether Bob Ehrlich was right.

Diversity Vision

"The Office of Residence Life, within its offices and its residence halls, will become a place where diversity among people is recognized, valued and demonstrated. Racism, sexism, heterosexism, ageism, ableism and other behaviors and systems that empower some while oppressing others will not be tolerated. Programs, policies, and procedures will reflect the importance and acceptance of diversity. Actions that encourage and promote diversity will be valued and rewarded."



Yeah. It sounds like they're all about cultivating the free exchange of ideas."

This also rings true:
"Far from stifling free speech, the residential life educational program seeks to encourage free speech.".... unless we don't like what you have to say.:S

This seems like a real life example of Port Chester University.

We would have held our RA down and beat him senseless. Hell, we did that and he didn't ask us any of those questions! He HATED me. I was a 21 year old freshman, so you can guess why.:ph34r:

Press releases are often dated forward. Heck, you'll find people putting out press releases ten days prior to the desired release of it.

Just a possibility.

And, read this from the U of Delaware....

Googling the issue, I see the passage you quoted reprinted word-for-word on several recent Conservative websites - but I don't see it discussed elsewhere yet.

The University's written rebuttal addresses some of the issues, but not all of them. For example, assuming the program really is optional and not mandatory, what percentage of students participate; and is there, or is there not, tacit social or institutional pressure to participate?

Maybe this program is so new it hasn't hit the mainstream press yet; but I'd like to see it responsibly examined by an objective party without a partisan agenda on either side. I need more facts, the whole picture.

Until then, I'm reserving judgment.

You've not been to university then?

Optional means all student opt to go to the bar instead, which is mandatory. :D

At our place the faculty go to the bar and take the students with them. But then, we're mostly engineers and scientists.
