Anti-Racism Workshop at U. Kentucky Tells Deans to Accept ‘White Inferiority’

Anti-Racism Workshop at U. Kentucky Tells Deans to Accept ‘White Inferiority’

“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.

I’m thinking Mary Davis’s problem is not “white inferiority,” but “personal inferiority.”

One doesn’t need to pay for self-flagellation.
Perhaps the admin should take that up instead.
Idiots!

Doesn’t this violate all sorts of state and federal laws on race discrimination? Why doesn’t the Dean of their law school recognize that?

    It’s not clear from this article whether the classes actually pushed the concept of “white inferiority” per se, or whether Mary Davis created that phrase on her own It’s a shame we don’t get to see the class material itself, only the invoices for it. I suppose there’s even a far-fetched chance that Davis is artfully trolling her superiors for forcing her to participate in a struggle session.

Mary Davis should resign or be terminated as Dean of the law school if she thinks any race is inferior or superior to another. That is the definition of racism. SHE IS A RACIST. Why would the law school at U. Kentucky want a racist as Dean?

>>> How can educated people be so dumb ? So easily misled ?

Being dumb and easily misled are additional reasons for her to resign or be terminated.

    There are the genuine educated. There are the genuine fools. But there’s are none to match the genuine educated fools.

Swap the shoe to the other foot. Go through everything Candice Hargans said, changing “white” to “nonwhite” and “anti-racism” to “racism.” Then stand back and enjoy the fun.
