“a socio-political system that distributes power, privilege and benefits unequally”
Progressivism in academia has become an industry. Imagine all the money that will change hands as a result of this event.
The College Fix reports:
Get ready — the 2018 White Privilege Conference is coming!
This year’s White Privilege Conference is taking a big step — it’s the first time it will move beyond the oppressive confines of the United States’ borders.
As such, the title of the early May confab is a bit more grandiose: “White Privilege Conference Global — Toronto.” It will be held at the city’s Ryerson University.
But do not misunderstand — just because Canada gets accolades for its multiculturalism, “there are still hurdles that exist nationwide.” For example, the subtitle on the conference website states “Are Canadians Too Polite? Addressing Global Perspectives on White Privilege and Oppression in Canada and Beyond.”
Yes, even politeness is now considered white privilege. Or something.
From the conference website:
“White Privilege” refers to a socio-political system that distributes power, privilege and benefits unequally among groups in societies and countries in our world. It is rooted in the history of European colonial domination and settlement of the Americas, Asia and Africa, on one hand, and the 19th century practice of “race science” justifying this domination, on the other. These two phenomena have resulted in a set of political, social and cultural beliefs, assumptions and practices based on the primacy of one group over others.
