Hat tip Campus Reform
The president of California State University of Long Beach, Jane Conoley, has jumped on the White Privilege bandwagon in a piece she wrote recently. Campus Reform has the report.
"White privilege" is the new buzzword on campuses these days. If you can't make the case for white racism or discrimination, it's the new default.
I will concede one point in her article, however. I am assured by a black female friend of mine, a professional with an advanced degree, that the department store scrutiny is real because she experiences it when she walks into one. That aside, I see this new terminology as just another effort to divide us-especially on campus.
The obvious response to Conoley is that she should consider her own qualifications for the position she holds. Is she the president of CSULB simply because she is white? Or let's twist it a little more; is it because she is a woman? Maybe she should set the example and resign.
