New York College Offers Course Named “Stop White People”

on

As colleges across the country kick off a new academic year, one university has come under fire for a new course offering.

This year, the State University of New York at Binghamton has created a course called “Stop White People,” which it intends resident advisors (RA) to take.

Three RAs teach the course, the Binghamton Review writes, which is meant to encourage deeper understandings of privilege and diversity. You can read the full description below:

“The premise of this session is to help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within. Learning about these topics is a good first step, but when encountered with ‘good’ arguments from uneducated people, how do you respond? This open discussion will give attendees the tools to do so, and hopefully expand upon what they may already know.”

Some Binghamton students were quick to assail the course, saying that it intends to divide more than it does unite.

“The terrifying implication here is not that students on campus think it is appropriate to call an event by that name, but that the university seems to endorse it as a proper part of a RA training,” Binghamton Review journalist Howard Hecht wrote.

    Perhaps a better course for this university to have followed is that of U of Chicago (I think that is the school) that says the mission is to educate, to promote discussion of all ideas, and there are no safety zones for little babies (who obviously are not mature enough for college) to retreat to when they get their little feelings hurt, or feel like being “offended” by any little thing. I can’t believe that people are actually paying out the exorbitant tuitions to send their kids to these stupid schools where they are going to continue indoctrination of socialism, where one can in no way learn to discuss ANYTHING, just absorb the bs thrown at them.
