“Gaming for Social Justice”
The game is described below and is every bit as bad as you might imagine.
The College Fix reports:
‘White Privilege Symposium’ allows people to play racial ‘social justice’ video game
A private college in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, will host a “symposium” on white privilege next month, a gathering that will feature, among other things, a video game “where a player takes the role of a Black American attempting to go to the corner store and return safely home.”
Coe College will host the event, “White Privilege Symposium: Navigating Race, Privilege, Identity, and Equity (Intersectionality): The Path Forward” on Sept. 7-8.
The event flyer states that the symposium will feature keynote speakers and “educational performances” as well as a wide variety of workshops.
Some of the workshops include: the Importance of Faculty of Color in the Classroom, Intersectionality of Race, Gender and Sexual Orientation;” “Race and Poverty;” “Race and Politics,” and “Black Male Identity and Masculinity.”
Among the workshops offered is one titled “Gaming for Social Justice.” According to a description of the game obtained by The College Fix, the workshop will feature “a live game experience where a player takes the role of a Black American attempting to go to the corner store and return safely home.”
“Along the way, they encounter micro aggressions from strangers to the neighborhood, as well as from law enforcement that can range from humiliating to lethal,” the description continues.
