University of Northern Iowa Introduces New Virtual Program Based on Critical Race Theory

“Cultivating Justice: A Quest Toward Racial Equity”

This is just a reminder of how embedded this ideology has already become in our system of higher education.

Take a look at University of Northern Iowa’s new online program based in Critical Race Theory

The University of Northern Iowa has created a six-week virtual program titled “Cultivating Justice: A Quest Toward Racial Equity” that “prompts individuals and small groups to reflect on a collection of local materials curated to promote racial justice and activate systemic change in our communities.”

The project’s web page notes that “systemic racism…can also occur in everyday technology – even automatic soap dispensers.”

The project’s first week included stories of discrimination faced by members of the campus community. For instance, a podcast from one alumnus described “the dissonance of existing in the space between his Ghanaian ancestral roots and his Americanized speech.” The materials also contain a link to a resource on “whitesplaining and how to avoid it.”

The second week featured a video by a sophomore student who defines terms like “white trash” and “Good White People.”

“When I say ‘Good White People,’ typically what I mean is a white liberal…when I mention liberal, I’m typically referring to someone who sees themselves as wanting to end racism in the United States and somebody who is not really responsible for the lingering racism within our society today,” he says. Though he notes that Good White People exist on both sides of the aisle, he says, “They are typically people who are progressive individuals or [who] see themselves as progressive individuals and want to see the country moving in a more positive direction in reference to race and equality.”
