University sponsors campaign to undermine 'white privilege'...
UK Daily Mail ^ | June 21, 2012 | James Nye

Posted on 06/22/2012 3:31:12 AM PDT by C19fan

A university's campaign to undermine 'white privilege' in one of the whitest cities in America has sparked outrage, with hundreds complaining that it blames racism on whites and makes white people out to be stupid and naive. The 'Un-Fair Campaign', which is sponsored by the University of Minnesota in Duluth, where 90 percent of people are white, asks if people feel enough guilt for the colour of their skin and poses the question: 'Is white skin really fair skin?' 'You give me better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance - all because of the color of my skin,' reads one poster from the 'Un-Fair Campaign', which wants to change the racial make-up of Duluth because figures suggest similar but more diverse cities across the Midwest are performing better economically.

The 'Unfair Campaign' has responded to criticism by quoting economic figures which indicate that the city slightly underperforms against other cities with more diverse populations.

I wonder whether the Un-Fair campaign would be willing to publicize crime figures as well, and I have no way of knowing what the numbers are in asking the question.

How precisely, does an “academic” institution get around the logical fallacy that correlation does not equal causation?

These people are too stupid to be running a university

Fair, decent, hard working, tax paying White people EVERYWHERE have about had enough.

Time for another race to go to work and accept responsibility for themselves.

These people do not have a clue.

Have they looked at the criminal activities of cities that have a big racial “diversity”?

They nt Philadelphia killings? Detroit killings?

Instead of trying to destroy Duluth, maybe they should just move to Sanford Florida.

Guilt-ridden, self-loathing white people who are the product of a couple of generations of leftist indoctrination crafted by guilt-ridden, self-loathing, over-schooled white fools on various university faculties.

Definitely Obama voters. Let them wallow in guilt without the press coverage (of course, that won't happen)

White people are often deceived when their area is 90% white; wait until it is 75%.

While NJ is a liberal state, it certainly isn’t when it comes to race. Welfare reservations are ringed by highways, train tracks, etc. (and now by a ring of illegal aliens doing the work welfare recipients could be doing); only whites foolish enough to venture across the frontier (like those attacked after the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert at the Prudential Center a few weeks ago) are victims. The raiding parties from the reservations find the suburbs very vigilant in repelling them; nobody along the frontier is foolish enough to believe media lies, and all are aware of the news blackout of the murderous intent of their urban neighbors.

The whitest parts of the US are definitely the most liberal, with 96% white Vermont among the most liberal along with states like Minnesota. There are a some exceptions in the West like Wyoming and a few others.

White privilege is just the lefty catchphrase for minority disfunction.

“The whitest parts of the US are definitely the most liberal, with 96% white Vermont among the most liberal along with states like Minnesota.”

Bush was elected by the whitest parts of the country; without the “darkest” parts there is no Democratic Party. Vermont had (and may still have) the least blacks in the union; they are liberal because it is in somebody else’s backyard. Also, Vermont is fairly libertarian; government is very small there.

Wealthy whites are the same as Vermont whites; as long as they don’t see race issues they can embrace liberalism (though they REALLY want to abort blacks out of existence). White Dems have no love for blacks; they are used for votes while those Dems import Hispanics hoping for a more docile group (with less racial grievances/white hatred) to replace blacks.

The Northeast is very good at keeping the welfare reservations ringed off. Just walk around Manhattan below in a street below 100 and its hard to imagine just up the island is a totally different world. Someone commented that a Northern does not mind a black being as tall as a white as long as the black does not stand beside the white while in pre-Civil Rights area South a white does not mind standing next to a black as long as the black is shorter than the white.

‘You give me better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance - all because of the color of my skin’

And they know this how? I say they quit their own job and give to someone more deserving—qualifications don’t apply. Think they’ll do that? LOL—hypocrites. Lead by example, you dumba$$es.

In order to seize your hard earned money and redistribute it, you have to be made to feel guilty about your accomplishments.

And you need to be reprogrammed to believe that your accomplishments were not the result of your personal initiative but were purely based on the fact that you’re white.

Where the hell do they find people willing to denigrate themselves and litter their bodies with such self-loathing graffiti? They look like they’re brainwashed and on LSD.

Kind of like Pelosi.

Bush was elected by the whitest parts of the country;

He was elected by the whitest counties, but not by the whitest states which tend to be the most liberal and out-of-touch with reality.

I could create a counter campaign for 1.98. My bill board would say...

It's time to fight back. Actively opposing this, giving it prominent mention on talk radio and strongly condemning in the loudest voice possible is a good way of doing this.

to be clear, this isn't about race. This is about ginning up a race based "problem" as basis for stronger government control with the controllers being those enlightened liberals.

I pray we don't fall for this crap.

An exercise in self-loathing.

They know the real causation, but their white guilt and self-loathing do not permit them to even think of it, let alone speak of it.

The real causation is that white folks created and built the USA. There are nations created and built by other groups, but many of the groups don't care to live in the nations created and run by their own.

It's not white privilege', it's historical white culture and accomplishment that gives whites any advantages they enjoy in the US.

What's funny is that the protester is most likely a student, insulated for the moment from the need to find a job.

It'll be interesting to find out what kinds of better jobs and pay these poor self-loathing white protesters find when they graduate.

These arrogant, pompous elitists confuse their own privilege and position in life with skin color.

Apparently they don’t know of any poor whites.

If they want to wage a campaign against unearned privilege they can start with tenured college professors, people like Elizabeth Warren, career politicians and major labor unions.

Life is tough enough for the working poor of all races.

Now the working white poor have to cope with the inane ranting of these pampered elitists telling them they are coasting through life on unearned privilege.

Truth be told, if Duluth is “having troubles” ...such troubles usually flow from bad decision-making...ie the poor software plugged into the cerebral hardware of the locals.

I’d say that is indeed an indictment of the educational establishment and schools...who will all do ANYTHING to avoid confronting that issue-

Exactly. Its a cultural thing. Even blacks recognise this, hence the phrase "acting white". If you accept the culture you succeed. If you want to be a part of the ghetto culture, you can live your life in a ghetto.
