“White Privilege” conference excludes white student because his presence would make attendees feel “unsafe”
At a: White Privilege conference in Madison Wisconsin, a young man was escorted out of a seminar because according to an organizer, his skin color would have made attendees feel “unsafe.“: The reason the young man was not able to attend a: specific seminar was because the: conference offered segregated seminars for people “of color” and those who are “white anti-racists.”
Other aspects include segregated workshops open to only some conference participants, based solely on the color of their skin. The reason? An organizer told our investigator: “It can feel, for some people of color, unsafe. Not universally — like in your group everybody was fine, but for some people it can feel like, oh, I don’t … ”
“Because I was white they would feel unsafe?” our reporter asked as he was led out of the workshop.
“Exactly. Exactly,” the organizer said. “And it’s not because you’ve done anything. You seem like a perfectly fine person, but it’s because of experiences they’ve had with others.”
There is so much hypocrisy within the white privilege movement. Judging someone, not as an individual, but rather based on a: stereotypes or: biases of every other member of that person’s race: is racism. That is exactly what this whole white privilege movement is all about.
