Hat tip Campus Reform and The Pipe Dream
This week, we cross-posted a story about Binghamton University (That's in New York State for the benefit of all you UC Santa Cruz Community Studies majors.) which hosted a training seminar called, "Stop white people". The vice chancellor for student affairs, Brian Rose, initially defended the name of the event saying it was not meant to be offensive. (They said the same thing about Amos and Andy once upon a time.) Now, after the story went viral, Mr Rose has apologized.
I checked out the campus paper of BU, The Pipe Dream, which went to press prior to Mr Rose's apology. Naturally, I added my own comment to the reader thread.
Hopefully, this will be a first step in putting all this "white privilege" crap to rest on our college campuses. We have a long way to go, of course, but as they say, "a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." ( I think that was Chairman Mao who said it, but no matter.)
