Skip to comments.CU 101 course required in dorm ( multiculturalism versus white privilege )
Posted on 05/24/2007 6:50:17 AM PDT by george76
The University of Colorado has sent letters to the 400 students signed up to live next year in the Cheyenne Arapaho dorm saying they must take a 101 course, or move to another hall.
The wide-ranging course explores the history of higher education, and touches on topics including diversity, binge-drinking and the psychology of going away to college...
But some professors who say they support a more tolerant campus are concerned with how the university is rolling the CU 101 course into its curriculum.
Hadley Brown, a newly elected CU student-body president, and the others on her winning ticket, said during their campaign that they wanted to uphold the diversity goals outlined by past student leaders.
"Ideally, I think that it would be excellent for all incoming students to take it," said Brown, a senior English major. "This is something I think is sorely needed. So many students at CU lack multicultural education and education about white privilege."

After Colorado University (CU) professor Ward Churchill came under fire for his 2001 essay Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens (wherein he alleged that Americas long history of injustice and oppression had sown the seeds of foreign rage that eventually manifested itself in the 9/11 attacks), one of the most ardent supporters to rush to his defense was fellow CU faculty member Tom Mayer.
A professor of sociology, Mayer shares Churchills belief that the United States is a nation whose history is an uninterrupted narrative of bigotry and imperialistic aggression. And like Churchill, Mayer too loathes capitalism, which he (as a Marxist) deems an exploitative system that causes immense human suffering. During Churchills ordeal, Mayer depicted his beleaguered colleague as an eloquent voice of truth capable of rallying resistance against Americas purportedly intransigent evil.
Will the section on White Privilege address the percentage of Combat Deaths suffered by White Men?
Do you have to bring your own funnel to the binge-drinking class or is one provided?
im glad someone finally told me - it wasnt my hard work that got me where i was today. it wasnt because i worked 60 hour weeks to pay for college, worked hard to get through college. it was because i was white! all i had to do was flash my white race card and people gave me everything i wanted! it was because of white priviledge!
“The course debuted last fall as a pilot program with 31 students, but the lower-than-expected enrollment made it difficult for school officials to conduct a solid review of it...
“...attributed the low enrollment to the fact most students had already registered for classes when the 101 course first became available. He said he believes there is interest in the course.”
Yet another example of how Liberal pukes ignore reality.
White privilege = bigger brain, high IQ.
None of this will help blacks graduate with higher grades.
Actual African-Americans (immigrants from Africa) and immigrants from the Caribbean do well in school, advance without affirmative action, and move easily into the rest of society. They still have a family structure, kids respect their elders, marriage is a firm bond, and kids are told to study.
Native-born US black culture says that learning is a bad thing, “race treason”, a white imposition; that ebonics (’dumb English’) is good; that rap music depicts a valid lifestyle; and that anyone who criticizes any of this can only be doing so for racist reasons.
More teaching that blacks are the victims of white oppression is not going to help the native-born population; it’s only justifying their excuses for themselves.
Let me translate this drivel: "So many students have avoided indoctrination and brainwashing by going to private schools or by being home-schooled that our homosexual, hate-America-first and white-guilt agendas are at risk. Like all fascists systems, those who don't toe the line need to be sent to reindoctrination camps."
More teaching that blacks are the victims of white oppression is not going to help the native-born population; its only justifying their excuses for themselves.
Interesting article addressing that very thing
A dream lay dying
Let me fix this:
"Ideally, speaking as head student fascist at CU, all comrades at CU should be forced to undergo this indoctrination," said Brown, a senior English major and future mocha latte server at Starbucks.
Why would anyone want to go to the University of Colorado, in light of War Churchill and this new non-sense about having to study and understand so-called yet non-existent “white privilege?”
Not to mention that the United States Government welfare programs have created an artificial unlimited demand for black babies born out of wedlock and into an urban jungle designed to raise them as uneducated, unproductive, irresponsible and likely progenitors of another generation of the same. It’s therefore no surprise that having created the unlimited demand for these people, we now have an unlimited supply of them.
I’m white. Is there someone I can contact about getting in on this privilige thing?
Another inconvenient truth that the media will ignore...
” the percentage of Combat Deaths suffered by White Men?”
We are successful because we work long hours and multiple jobs...
These pukes have to make the class required or it will be empty...
They want to re-train us into their ‘pc’ world.
