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.
WATCH BELOW: Group says it is "unfair" to be white

Spot-on example of a failure of LOGIC.
“The first effect of not believing in God, is that you lose your common sense.” ...GK Chesterton
So they look at me and based on my white skin tone, just assume that I’ve had things easy.
And they look at people with dark skin tones and based on that assume they’ve had it tough.
And this message of this group is not to judge others by skin color?
And Duluth had rainfall and flooding of near-Biblical proportions night before last....
logic? That’s just a trick invented by white people to oppress people of color.
My favorite variation on your quote, “When you believe in nothing, you’ll fall for anything.”
I would really like to see Jesse Jackson, Melissa Harris-Perry, Al Sharpton, or the like asked one simple question: When you consider everything equal?
White privilege certainly existed even in my own lifetime. I’m even willing to hear arguments that it still exists. However, I’m not willing to accept the notion that it exists in perpetuity.
I was thinking about the left’s constant efforts to seperate people into their different categories, and the “Tower of Babal” popped into my head. I know there is no actual tower under construction, but the left is trying to “build” a utopia. As they continue their efforts we are all being divided to a point where we don’t even speak the same any more....
So, in Mexico, China, Saudi Arabia or Zimbabwe, do I get 400 points added to my SAT’s, additional financial aid and scholoarship opportunities and a leg up in grad school admissions, plus when all that’s over, do I get preferential hiring at a job, especically in Government?
Oh, and if I commit a crime against whitey, it’s only coincidence, when if the reverse happens, it’s a hate crime?
All sorts of ways of fighting back on this.
For example, give out yellow ‘W’ stickers to wear on shirts, like the yellow Star of David the Nazis made the Jews wear.
Create fictitious organizations like the White Panthers, that call for the overthrow of the university administration because they are racists.
Call for a “white boycott” of university sporting events, and demand the creation of a “white studies” department.
Whites should go elsewhere, and let UMD become an Obama’s kids college.
Why would white parents allow their kids to go there?
Right now we more less speak the same, however the meaning behind those words nare no longer universal. So they have already created there tower along with the ramifications.
Whites ashamed of being white elected this garbage man we have in the White House, and a lot of them will vote that way again.
This sort of University action cries out that what we have addressed as Myths & Myth Makers In American "Higher" Education must be addressed. Those who refuse to challenge the sham academic disciplines that lead to such lunacy, lest they be called some hissy name, have surrendered the battle field to those who mean to destroy our heritage & take away our sovereign independence.
(See, also, World Government & Surrender By Subterfuge; because if you scratch the surface, you will find that those who hate ethnic Americans are generally the most avid supporters of World Government & other fantasies of human interchangeability.) The compulsive need to destroy people's pride in their own heritage--and this applies to almost any people--is clear evidence not of good intentions, but of the intent to undermine existing social structures. It needs to be understood as such.
Demonstrably, those societies and countries that don’t have “white” culture as the basis of governance, ie, are NOT “set up for the white man”,
are MISERABLE FAILURES, CORRUPT, and POOR.
Nare = are
What group benefits most from White Guilt and has been at the forefront of imposing it? (It’s not the Blacks or Latinos).
That is why is is essential that we attack the sham academics that lie behind this lunacy. This is a contrived--tortured, to be sure, yet still calculated--attack on heritage, on the proud history of the American people. And you are quite right, it leads to automatons chanting in unison for change as the demagogue rants from the podium.
Ug... - I went to the source and saw that Tim “I hate White people” Wise is involved with this.
My people have been in this country since the 17th century.
I can trace them back that far. As far as I can find out they made good Americans, but if they hadn’t, why should I be ashamed for them.
I am an individual, I can only be responsible for my actions, and I am far from ashamed.
I guess they’re not very dependent on Alumni for donations. Or whites for students.
When the U.S. was 80, 90% white, yeah, it WAS set up for whites! So what? Would anyone complain that a 90% black country was “set up for blacks” or a 90% Asian country was “set up for Asians”? What were they supposed to do, set it up for Australian aborigines?
Yeah, now we are less than 90% white, but mainly because tens of millions of nonwhites CHOSE to come here and/or choose to stay!
As for those idiot whites who are groveling and apologizing...let them all give up their jobs to nonwhites! And let them move to majority nonwhite neighborhoods and send their kids to majority nonwhite schools. Bet they’re not doing that now!
I’m so sick of this carp I could spit.
The privilege of being a scapegoat for PC-pigmented underachievers for the last 30 years or so? The privilege of being legally discriminated against in favor of same because they are unwilling or intellectually unable to compete? I’m all for ending those privileges.
The only fair thing to do is eliminate 80-90% of the white race.
Imagine writing racist screeds across the faces of black, brown or yellow skinned people and the reaction would be nuclear.
University sponsors campaign to undermine 'white privilege'... in one of the whitest cities in the U.S.
But that general rule is not the point when one looks at the roots of America. Those 17th Century settlers carved wonderful communities out of a wilderness. Their achievements deserve admiration, not apology. And frankly, as one whose forebears came over in the 19th Century, I personally feel a deep sense of gratitude for what those 17th Century settlers achieved with their blood, sweat, toil & tears; and a debt that I will always try to repay by doing my small part to preserve the heritage of that settler culture that is so well and truly represented in our fundamental principles--the principles that are under constant attack today.
The America that we Conservatives seek to preserve, was well & truly Grounded On Experience & Reason, the experiences of those settlers & the reasoned conclusions drawn by the generation of Washington & Jefferson, based on those experiences.
If I followed their logic:
I earned a full academic scholarship, so the university I attended is run by bigots.
I scored 1380 out of 1600 on the SAT, so it’s creators are of course bigots against everyone who scored lower.
I graduated at the top of my class in high school, so the school administrators were bigots for issuing grades.
My parents taught me to treasure education and crave knowledge, so they are unfair bigots against children without such parents.
I was able to fulfill my potential, which included a 150 IQ that I was born with.
Therefore God is a bigot.
Sick. Just sick.
A message needs to go out via the UMD alumni network asking: are you OK with your donations paying for this and your alma mater promoting such racist hate against white people?
I refuse to donate to my alma mater due to its uber-PC/lefty political climate — a LOT of hate toward white people comes out of my former university.
Hit ‘em in the pocketbook, it’s the only thing they understand!
Leftists have been trying this “white privilege” crap for more than two decades. I heard it in college in the early nineties. It never dawns of lefties that non-white minorities in the U.S. have more opportunities and live better than their ethnic cousins in the home countries. Just deluded lefties arguing from a deep pit in the outer realm of insanity. If they want to gouge whites, why don’t they head on out to Hollyweird and convince all the super-rich libs out there to cough over their fortunes? See how that goes.
Yes indeed! Separating or dividing people is one of Alinsky’s tactics...with a pure evil source. Authentic unity comes from God.
Their tactics can only be successful if we ignore God and each other. And...actually...I’m seeing the beginning of a new unity among God’s people in this country.
With prayer, fasting and thoughtful work...we will tear down that tower!
