University in Missouri to Offer ‘Witnessing Whiteness’ Program for Faculty
“white people voluntarily coming together to do work around racism in a supportive, non-threatening setting”
Doing this with faculty members of any other race would be met with shrieks of racism.

Webster University to offer ‘Witnessing Whiteness’ program for faculty and staff
Missouri’s small, private Webster University will be offering its (white-identifying) faculty and staff a chance to “witness their whiteness” beginning in August.
In conjunction with the local YMCA, which has been sponsoring “Witnessing Whiteness” events since 2011, Webster hopes to do its part in helping to “eliminate racism.”
According to the event description, WW is about “white people voluntarily coming together to do work around racism in a supportive, non-threatening setting.” It’s also about “learning to speak about race and racism, exploring white privilege, and practicing allying with sisters and brothers of color.”
The program is open to anyone who “identifies as white.” (That leaves out Rachel Dolezal.)
WW draws upon the work of Mount Saint Mary’s University’s Shelly Tochluk and her book “Witnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It.” Tochluk’s experiences with race were shaped by her track and field days at UCLA.

Every time I see something like this I have to wonder, have these people never even heard of racism? Do they honestly not know that generalizing about people on the basis of skin color is a bad thing?
Truly, there is no understanding the liberal mind.
They have redefined racism as an inherent characteristic of somebody who is NOT of certain skin colors. They know that what THEY do is inherently racist as nobody can be that stupid and still know how to breathe. Besides, skin color is a sliding scale from one color to another color. The boundary is arbitrary and ignored if it does not fit the narrative (Justice Thomas, for example, is not considered “Black”).
IOW: the word has no meaning except when libs want to use it to club someone over the head.
Again, how can people think that way? How does it even begin to make sense? Never mind. I know there are no answers. Some days it just bugs me.
“practicing allying with sisters and brothers of color” sounds a lot like “practicing enslaving yourself”.
