University of Iowa Trains Students to Understand Their White Privilege
“Exploring White Identity for Effective Allyship”
Higher education’s obsession with progressive policy is forcing real academic studies into the back seat. When will students understand they’re being cheated out of serious study?

Public university trains white students on their ‘white privilege’
Many universities continue to teach students — especially white students — that white privilege is a real and pressing problem that must be addressed to end racism.
The latest example comes from the University of Iowa, which recently hosted a three-day event called “Exploring White Identity for Effective Allyship,” composed of dialogue, panel discussions and interactive exercises for attendees.
Headed up by the university’s Chief Diversity Office, the event in late March had an expressed aim for “White identified people to discuss Whiteness and its privileges with other White people. This can be the first step to eliminating tokenism and increasing responsibility among allies to eliminate racism,” according to a flier promoting the event.
The first day was a student-focused session, followed by one for the community, and the final session was for faculty and staff.
Numerous campus officials were asked by The College Fix to comment on the workshop, including Elizabeth Lara, diversity resources coordinator, as well as Tom Moore and Anne Bassett in media relations, but none did.

Is it just me, or is the way these people use the word “allies” suspiciously close to the word “dhimmi”?
