At Boston College, panel of white professors lament ‘whiteness’
A recent panel at Boston College titled “Whiteness: A Faculty-Student Dialogue about Race” drew self flagellation from white professors on the dais, who lamented white people’s alleged power and privilege as well as the white power they say is embedded into all aspects of American life and called for white people to dismantle their advantages for the sake of solidarity and equality.
The annual undergraduate cost to attend Boston College, including tuition, fees, room and board, is nearly $70,000.
The Nov. 6 panel aimed to allow white faculty to discuss their own personal experiences with whiteness and offer advice on what to do about racism, according to an event description on the university’s website.
The Heights campus newspaper reports on some of the comments the panel elicited from white scholars who took part.
Yonder Gillihan, a professor of theology, “admitted that it took a long time for him to recognize the privileges that society granted him. He explained that it was very easy for him to forget about race because of the fact that he is white,” the Heights summarized.
“Very little in my professional and personal life reflected that very awareness about privilege status,” Gillihan reportedly said. “We white people created race. We invented the concept, and we deployed [it] against our non-white brothers and sisters. It’s our responsibility to figure out ways to dismantle it.”
