RA Mandatory Training Program at Western Carolina U. Says ‘Reverse Racism is a Myth’
“There is little to no empirical evidence to support systemic discrimination against white people.”
The term ‘reverse racism’ is somewhat silly because racism is racism, but the point here is that these students are being told that racism against white people doesn’t exist and that’s simply not true.

Western Carolina U Mandatory RA Training: ‘Reverse Racism is a Myth’
A mandatory resident assistant training program at Western Carolina University asserted that “reverse racism is a myth,” according to documents obtained exclusively by Young America’s Foundation.
An anonymous tip through YAF’s Campus Bias Tip Line revealed a “cultural competency” training required for all students who are RA’s at WCU. Hosted by Alex Fields, the associate director of residence life, and Gabriel Foust, a graduate community coordinator, the training emphasizes leftist buzzwords such as understanding “microaggressions” and “privilege.”
On page 16 of the PowerPoint, the leaders assert “To put it simply, reverse racism is a myth. There is little to no empirical evidence to support systemic discrimination against white people.”
It goes on to label the idea of reverse racism as “an opposition to policies and movements that sought racial equity in the United States.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The leaders are quoted as ““an opposition to policies and movements that sought racial equity in the United States.” The well-documented historic record shows that the Civil Rights Movement sought racial equality, not “racial equity.” CORE, a leading civil rights group, had “Racial Equality” in its very name. The current advocates cannot have it both ways — they claim that “equity” represents something different than Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s vision of a merit-based, color-blind society while also claiming that today’s notion of equity is the same as the equality sought by the Civil Rights Movement and enshrined in the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.
Yep, that’s the verbal trick. Don’t let them normalize “equity”, which is the ideal of communism.
That Procrustean goal was part of the problems the French Revolution had as well.
At the last liberal-arts college where I worked, there were a number of faculty “diversity” hires. In the selection committee, we were told that if our top three candidates included a white male, the search would be terminated. Even after offers had been made to all the acceptable “diverse” candidates (and rejected), we were not allowed to interview any of the white male candidates.
The only myth is that Western Carolina U. is an educational institution.
“To put it simply, reverse racism is a myth. There is little to no empirical evidence to support systemic discrimination against white people.”
What was the evidence of ‘systemic discrimination’ against non-whites post-1970?
