‘Exploring Whiteness’

The white guilt campus movement has become such that white students are now actively trying to combat their perceived white privilege.

“Exploring Whiteness” is a new discussion group at Stonehill College, a private Catholic university in Massachusetts. It aims to tackle “what it means to have whiteness” and how to be “part of the solution.” Which means having white skin must be the problem? Only students with a “European heritage background” are allowed.

“They’ll be given one assignment a week that just has to do with noticing. Like spending a week looking at who is in positions of power and who is cleaning up after the show. The goal for any of these groups is for people to be more aware of what’s around them,” a campus official recently told The College Fix about the club.

The end goal? “Interrupt the cycle of racism in our society.”

This epitomizes the problem with a college education today. Administrators’ and scholars’ priority is to mold kids into resenting America, to teach them to self-identify through skin color or sexual orientation rather than as Americans, and to give them a worldview that sees this great country as nothing more than an oppressive, racist, and divided nation.

“Exploring Whiteness”​ may not be at every campus, but its theories are already taught widely inside most humanities classrooms in America.
