Given the subjects many college students are told to believe are priorities…
- Cal State LA Prof Compares Police Officers to ‘Slave Catchers’
- Yale Admins Consider Replacing ‘Freshman’ With ‘First Year’
- Student Leaders at Ohio State Want Safe Spaces All Over Campus
Is it any surprise they end up uninformed?
And then we wonder why they’re crazy over Trump.
- Occidental College Faculty Council Goes Full Anti-Trump
- UW-La Crosse Rethinks Firing Employee for Supporting Trump Policy
The environment on many campuses is set up to be divisive.
- College RA Tells White Girls That Wearing Hoop Earrings is Cultural Appropriation
- Prof Delivers ‘Recovering from Whiteness’ Lecture at Ohio U.
- Students Labeled Racists for Wearing U.S. Flag Colors
Even violent sometimes.
A narrative is being pushed.
There are consequences.
- Writer Offers Solution to Heckler’s Veto on College Campuses
- College Republicans Have Tripled Their Membership in… Boston?
It’s all going to crash eventually.
- Aquinas College Cutting Programs, Forcing Student Transfers
- Over a Million Borrowers Defaulted on Federal Student Loan Debt Last Year

Understanding and Interrupting White Fragility
Tuesday, March 7th, 2017
University Hall Multi-Purpose Room
Join Westfield State’s AWARE (Active White Anti-Racist Employees) group as we examine white fragility and how to disrupt it. Move from woke-ish to WOKE through dialogue and activities about how and why white fragility manifests itself and how we can challenge ourselves and others to stop feeling guilty and start taking responsibility.
*While we will be trying to understand white fragility and how to interrupt it, this program is intended for people of all racial identities. White fragility impacts all of us, so we need to understand it as a community in order to interrupt and eventually dismantle it
If that “white fragility” program description is a valid example of how most liberal arts/humanities students are being taught to think, speak, and write, no wonder they’re having trouble finding jobs in the real world.
Ah, today’s little college snowflakes. Often wrong, never in doubt.
