“Cultivating an Anti-Racist Mindset for Academic Administrators”
I’m starting to get the feeling that some of these ‘anti-racist’ folks are actually racists.
The College Fix reports:
University’s anti-racism workshop teaches deans to ‘accept white inferiority’
The University of Kentucky hosted an anti-racism workshop that apparently aimed to teach deans and other top faculty to accept their “white inferiority” and work to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion goals in their departments.
The university paid $5,000 to the Center for Healing Racial Trauma for the workshop, according to invoices recently obtained through a public records act request by Young America’s Foundation.
Titled “Cultivating an Anti-Racist Mindset for Academic Administrators,” the workshop was hosted last winter by the center, which offers trainings designed to heal people of racism and teach them to be anti-racist, among other services.
The center is run by University of Kentucky psychology Professor Candice Hargons, according to its website. Hargons did not respond to a request for comment from The College Fix.
The session involved deans and other top faculty writing out their “chosen metric for anti-racism,” to whom they have chosen to be accountable, and the steps they have taken thus far to address it. The details of the sessions were reported on by YAF, which obtained copies of hand-written cards by participants on how they will be anti-racist.
For example, Mary Davis, dean of the UK’s College of Law, wrote she has begun to “force myself to accept white inferiority,” and that it is “really hard.”
Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric Monday wrote that he plans to specifically hire more black, indigenous or people of color with a minimum salary of $50,000. He also wrote that he has created a $250,000 BIPOC recruitment fund.
