Workshop at Ohio State Tells Students Only White People Can be Racist
“develop a personal plan of action to interrupt racism”
This sort of garbage has no place in higher education. It’s not academic, it’s pure political indoctrination.

Ohio State Workshop Tells Students Only Whites Can Be Racists
An Ohio State University workshop warned white students about their privilege and told them that only whites can be racist.
A Tuesday seminar offered handy “Tips & Tools for White People,” the College Fix reports.
The university’s website announced the event with the promise that students would be shown how to “develop a personal plan of action to interrupt racism,” but, because only white students had any need to develop such a plan, only white students were encouraged to attend.
Of the 20 students at the workshop, 19 were white. One African-American student attended as an observer while a College Fix reporter recorded the proceedings.
The workshop attempted to demonstrate that race, power and prejudice are the “ingredients” that produce racism. This is why white people alone can be racist, explained Angie Wellman, because they wield power in society while non-whites do not.
The black student in attendance asked Wellmann, who is the associate director of the Student Life Multicultural Center at Ohio State, whether that meant that white people had a monopoly on racist attitudes. Wellman said, Of course it did.

The Left has been in charge of public education for a couple of generations now. No one should be surprised.
Teaching falsehoods is not education, it is indoctrination. They are telling young people what to think, not how to reason.
30 years ago, while undergoing “Sensitivity Training”at my Ohio employer, this “Only Whites Can Be Racist” theme was taught. It has been the false thesis at least that long!
Joepeh, I first heard this crap in teacher in-service in Seattle Public Schools in 1973 or 1974. So for over 40 years they have spread the lie!
I was told that as a freshman at Northwestern in 1975. It was framed a little differently, as “non-whites cannot be racist.” But the same BS anyway.
Well, the good news is that only 20 students showed up, with at most 19 students willing to subject themselves to overt indoctrination.
A greater concern is all the covert indoctrination that takes place day in and day out, semester in and semester out – and a goodly portion of that on the taxpayer dime in one way or another, I’m sure.
So, let me see if I’ve got this right:
Since I am white(ish) and have never behaved in a bigoted way toward any ‘Person of Color’ (PoC) by word, action, or inaction, I am nonetheless a racist simply because I am Caucasian. Conversely, the PoC’s that have over the last sixty-plus years insulted me and my family and threatened us with grave bodily damage and/or death based on nothing more than our ethnicity (race) cannot be deemed racist simply because they are PoC’s! Is that what these academic twits are claiming?
If so, these people are DELUSIONAL!!
Bigotry has no ethnic exclusivity, period.
Heh, these people should listen to some light-skinned African Americans talk about new immigrants from Africa. Or Thai people talk about Vietnamese. Or Mexicans talk about Guatamalans.
According to this, can Rachel Dolezal, self-identifying person of color, be a racist?
Or is that a “gray area”?
