University Sponsors Radical Campaign to Undermine 'White Privilege'
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 06/20/2012 2:16:13 PM PDT by oliverdarcy

The University of Minnesota - Duluth (UMD) is now sponsoring an ad-campaign designed to achieve "racial justice" by raising awareness of "white privilege."

The project disseminates its message, that "society was setup for us [whites]" and as such is "unfair," through an aggressive campaign of online videos, billboards, and lectures. The ads feature a number of Caucasians confessing their guilt for the supposed "privilege" that comes along with their fair features.

The self-titled Un-Fair Campaign, is sponsored and supported by the University of Minnesota - Duluth, along with several liberal organizations including the NAACP, YWCA, and The League of Woman Voters.

"You give me better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance - all because of the color of my skin," reads one poster that features a close shot of a Caucasian male.

The Un-Fair campaign also held a series of lectures and events on campus last semester. One included a presentation by Tim Wise, author of Dear White America. In his book, Wise confesses a "longstanding fantasy" where he turns to a man with a "God Bless the USA" button and asks him, "why can't you just get over it?"

Fine - let's also start a discussion about affirmative action, the racial preference in scholarship money, the wealth transfer from productive whites to unproducdive blacks, the constant playing of the "race card", the lower standards of behavior blacks are held to, etc, etc.

” Is this satire? Surely this is satire. “

Sadly, no... This is LibThink at its best -

I’ve said often on these threads that professional satirists are looking for other work, because there’s no way for their imaginations to come up with anything as outrageous as the daily headlines....

I used to think some areas of the country were safe from the ever-destructive Left.

However, talentless Communist “professors” looking for the incredibly soft, non-demanding, sheltered, hideously over-reimbursed academic life, will spread their oozing, chancerous pustulence anywhere they can find even a junior college, stupid enough to hire their lazy, non-productive asses.

Based on what I read on that blog, it appears this is like the Bake Sales with different prices for different groups.

Extreme satire that will probably go over most libtards’ heads.

No son - you get better jobs because you actually passed the classes you took in school, learned to read and write, don't dress like a hood, didn't have a rap sheet when I checked your background, didn't knock-up 3 girls by the time you were 15 and learned to speak at least semi-proper English.

Perhaps if these Libtards were to experience the Utopia of life under rule of Black Culture - like found in any random African nation - they would actually get a clue as to how good they have it.

If you had a magic time-machine that could take you to any point in time, in human history - would you rather live in a civilized “White” culture, or a “Black” culture?

I cannot think of a single time in human history, where living in a “Black” culture would be equal to that of a “White” culture.

I guess they mean they want to be more like white people: Not lazy, stupid, greedy, or sloths.

Of course they will then be outraged to find that any such privilege doesn’t really exist and that the only jobs that they are actually qualified to do with that degree involve hamburgers and spatulas...

And don’t forget IQ because the average ghetto black and mestizo hispanic IQs are c. 85 it is no longer “allowed”, “permitted” to test the IQ of potential employees. Apparently employers who might insist on the average of 100 are just so unreasonable and don’t forget racist.

That’s how we get so many doofuses in positions of responsibility while bright people of all races are passed over especially if they haven’t been to college. If God wanted them running everything as they seem to think they should be - He would have made them smarter.

Apart from setting race relations back 60 years, I will predict the following: One item of residue from the 0bama adminsistration will be a 5-7-10% 25-year increase in the effective rate of black unemployment. Very simply, because this piece of crap is going to engender a generation of blacks with terrible, resentful attitude, that plenty of people who are interested in having honest and not predator employees will detect on interview and will simply will not hire.

UMD has also had past problems with “fake but accurate” racist graffiti later found to be done by a student reporting it.

the papers never seem interested enough to tell us what (if any) punishment the frauds get for doing this...kind of like the felons who get caught voting stories.

Patently untrue, as anyone who has looked for a job, particularly one with the government or involving a grant can testify.

Get an education that you pay for and apply for a job based on your merits.

I am sick and tired of paying for your food, health care, car payment, mortgage, etc. What happens when Uncle Sam runs out of our [white peoples'] money?

During the great immigration wave between 1890 and 1920, about 20 million eastern Europeans arrived in America. Included in this bunch were members of the nascent European socialist movement. If you read old newspapers from that period, you’ll see them referred to as “red flag wavers.”

A good number of these red flag wavers came to Northern Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to work in the iron and copper mines. Some of them started unions and caused all kinds of trouble, including strikes and shutting down mines.

Their movement culminated in the murder of 73 children at a Christmas party in Calumet, Michigan when a unionist shouted fire in a crowded Italian benevolence hall. The kids were trampled to death trying to get out of the building. Congress investigated the incident but never arrested the ring leaders.

The citizens formed vigilance committees and ran the red flag wavers out of town. In one incident, a sheriff’s deputy found a union leader trying to leave town and shot him on a train.

Anyway, the Duluth morons are spawn of these red flag wavers. Nobody takes them seriously, and they’re roundly hated by normal Americans in the area.

Yep, it has nothing whatsoever to do with college grades, lack of criminal behavior, willingness to delay gratification... parents who married BEFORE starting a family... nope - it ONLY has to do with color of skin...

In 1964 bias against blacks - and the disadvantages caused by that bias was real. NOT so in 2012...

Asian families immigrated, lived in the same ghettos as blacks, went to the same schools - and had the disadvantage of not speaking English - and here they are 50 years later - moving into the mainstream. While blacks cling to their bitterness and grievances. Hispanics in Florida have done the same - worked their way up and out of the ghetto. Blacks are there because of their own choices - not because the culture hasn't done enough to 'help'... It's time for democrats to quit enabling the black community and allow them the dignity of supporting their own communities.

This article is a bunch of BS. Since racial quotas, the white male has had to work twice as hard for twice as long to get half as far. Meanwhile, others are promoted for reasons other than merit.

There’s no such thing as “white privilege”. It’s just one of the tools that liberal acedemia uses to try and bring down the US.

Yes the useful idiots do indeed think that they will end up on the top of the heap , unfortunately reality being what it is they instead wind up standing at the edge of a open mass grave waiting for a single pistol shot to the back of the head.

This is not just my humble opinion but the history of the 20th century is the history of open mass graves.
