Hat tip The College Fix and the Ryersonian
Ah yes! To be young and stupid. If you think academia in Canada is more sensible than down here in the lower 48-think again. Here is how the topic of race is handled at Ryerson College, where two white students were excluded from a meeting on racism-or racialism, whatever that is.
Here is the point: When it comes to race relations, we are going in reverse. It is the 21st century, and white people are not the enemy of non-whites. There are certainly divisions and disagreements on matters pertaining to race, but if we are to surmount them whites are part of the process and part of the solution.
What I find very disconcerting is the growing demonization of whites. We see it in academia with all this new talk about "white privilege, whatever that is-I certainly never enjoyed any. We also see it in the seemingly growing number of whites being assaulted by blacks at least in the US.
At any rate, excluding whites from discussions on improving race relations is not going to improve anything.
