CU 101 course required in dorm ( multiculturalism versus white privilege )
Daily Camera ^ | May 15, 2007 | Brittany Anas

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 America’s 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 Churchill’s 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 Churchill’s ordeal, Mayer depicted his beleaguered colleague as an eloquent voice of truth capable of rallying resistance against America’s purportedly intransigent evil.

Will the section on White Privilege address the percentage of Combat Deaths suffered by White Men?

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.

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.

"This is something I think is sorely needed. So many students at CU lack multicultural education and education about white privilege."

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."

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.

Many are voting with their feet elsewhere, like CSU, Metro...

That said : the engineering , business schools, and some other parts of CU are apparently still good.

Ward’s department should not be a department. But there are many ‘pc’ liberals on campus.

Ironically, both Thomas Sowell in Black Rednecks and White Liberals and James Webb in Born Fighting make the claim (condensed here) that this behavior is learned from the rural Southern whites who were by and large descended from the Lowland Scots who migrated to the US in the 1700s; thus, in this behavior which allegedly celebrates their African ancestry, they are actually "acting White".

Have you checked out their new Health Sciences Center at Fitzsimmons Campus? CU administrators scored a coup with this one.

This “white privilege” concept was dreamed up by white-hating bigots who could not explain, without tripping on some truths of life, why Western culture dominates the world.

So deep is their resentment that they needed to invent this nonsensical “club” with which they hope to bludgeon white people into accepting their convoluted view of the world.

And that convoluted view is that white people didn’t get Western culture to where it is by hard work, perseverance and sacrifice, but by somehow “robbing” other peoples of their “rightful” possessions.

The fact that Western society has single handedly raised the standard of all life on the planet is particularly galling to these hate mongers, so it becomes even more important to beat those “privileged white MFers” into believing that their contributions were neither that good nor important.

Hey, U of C, wanna see a hate-mongering racist?

Go look in the mirror.

Has there been a study of black kids who are military dependents. Most of my soldiers(no matter the color) would not put up with their kids doing badly in school and the officers I knew expected their kids to all go to college.

CU wears its “multiculturalism” on its sleeve, but Boulder has historically been hostile territory for people of color, right down to their DA prosecuting black football players for having sex with “our girls.” Bunch of liberal hypocrites if you ask me.

From this link...

In Focus: Cultural Relativism

...In fact it's quite strange the way a line of thought that's intended to side with the oppressed often sides with oppressors in the name of multiculturalism. A great many practices could be put in the box 'their culture'. Dowry murders, female infanticide, female genital mutilation, slavery, child labour, drafting children into armies, the caste system, beating and sexually abusing and witholding wages from domestic servants especially immigrants, Shariah, fatwas, suttee. These are all part of someone's 'culture', as murder is a murderer's culture and rape is a rapist's. But why validate only the perpetrators? Have the women, servants, slaves, child soldiers, Dalits, ten-year-old carpet weavers in these cultures ever even had the opportunity to decide what their culture might be?

Yeah, let's hear it for multiculturalism.

I work on a college campus here in Illinois. Let me give you an example of white privilege at work...

Two years ago, we had a faculty opening. The university told us that we could only interview female or minority candidates for the position.

The person hired for the position was both female and a minority. She also has a disability.

Her reviews as an instructor have been consistently poor. I have seen her lecture and was struck by the fact that not only was she a bad teacher but she was wrong. The lesson she was presenting was factually incorrect.

Six months ago, she was the subject of an ethics investigation. A student claimed the professor offered to sell her the answers to the midterm for X dollars and the answers to the final for Y dollars. After an investigation, the university took the professor's word over the student's. No consequences for the professor.

The professor was also named "Professor of the Year" for the college.

As a white male, I would have been terminated for poor teaching or even the allegation that I had been trying to shake down students for cash. Yep, it's a privilege being a white male on campus.

The radical left got into “higher education” and successfully prevented normal people from being hired. They have perfected the art of indoctrination. I now think that this has gone so far that it has the opposite effect to that which the lefties want. I think that it is showing normal people that they are really NOT racists and that the radical lefties are racists.

Shhhh.... not only did white male scientists and scholars give us civilization as we know it, but a disproportionate number of them were Jewish. If it weren’t for “white devils”, we’d be living a middle ages existence. One of my favorite quotes is from Orson Welles: “men created civilization to impress their girlfriends”

There's a young lady working for me part time and attending the community college here. Her goal is to become an architect. I was impressed and encouraged her to slug it out no matter what and I told her that when I went to the university as a returning vet, I finished my core in two semesters and a summer session. (Maybe a residual course in the third semester.)

I asked what courses she was taking and she read off the basics......plus some whacko diversity course which didn't make a lick of sense in Hawaii. But it was required and a total waste of three credit hours that could have been better spent in her curriculum.

Imagine a young assistant professor teaching a class of Locals, Japanese, Chinese, Haole, Portagee, Vietnamese, Korean, Filipino and Micronesian, Hispanic and Popolo students diversity in a Hawaii Community College......I should challenge the course for credit by showing up with weekly supermarket shopping receipts.

This white privilege crap makes me laugh every time. I come from a family who worked for everything we have and I'm white. I didn't have time to protest because I always had to work. I went to college on my GI bill that I earned with two tours in Nam because my family could not afford to pay for my education. I worked extra part time jobs to be able to afford my wife's college education and we both worked to get the things we needed and wanted.
Now my service connected disabilities are kicking my butt but I'm still working and doing what I can.
All white people were not born rich or with opportunities around every corner. I've earned everything I have, nothing was given to me!!! I've shoveled horse crap out of stalls, washed dishes, worked and managed fast food restaurants, and unloaded trucks. I've received promotions by busting my butt to show my bosses that I'm hard working and dependable. I never thought anyone owed me a job or a raise. If I didn't like what I was doing I found a better job and then quit the one I had. And get this, I stayed in our home and was an active full time parent to my children!!!!! Most of these entitlement minded people need to get a couple clues. Clue #1 WORK IS NOT A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!! It's how you get things in this life. Clue #2 is that nobody owes these lazy idiots a damn thing!!!!!

When I went to school as a returning vet (also two tours), I was awarded 5 points in admission for being a vet and a couple for having a NY Regents diploma. I also had a diploma from DLI.....which didn't count, nor did any of the other service schools or training, since it was included in the original five.

However, all minority students were awarded 20-25 admission points for just applying. At the university I attended, the minorities were the majority.

Cui bono?

Excellent.

When my older son was a senior in a California University, one of the deans told him that if he didn’t volunteer for so PC group several hours per week, he wouldn’t be graduated.

I had a lawyer friend send the dean a letter explaining that was involantary servitude and slavery had been banned in America. Did he and the university want to go to court to rediscover that reality.

He didn’t “volunteer”, and he was graduated with honors.

The NEA has a death grip on education, Dave. They've created teaching positions for people that have degrees in Education and Communication.....

I went to visit my son's HS Biology teacher to see how he was doing and find out what the course expectations were. Since I work in the field, I asked the teacher about the lesson on eucaryotic and procaryotic cells and their differences since homework assignments seemed to be missing. The teacher told me that was too advanced and this was a general overview.

I asked the teacher if she had a degree in Biology and the answer was no. She had a degree in Education

Hmmmmm....

As a refresher, eucaryotic cells make up the higher plants and animals. Procaryotic cells make up bacteria. This is basic.

Imagine my surprise finding infection teaching in a high school.
