EXCLUSIVE: That seminar about right-handed privilege cost $4,000
Administrators had Greek life participants at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill to sit through an intersectionality seminar, which touched on a wide range of intersectionality-related issues — including the notion that right-handed people have a special degree of “privilege.”
Campus Reform obtained a copy of the contract for the event, which shows that the speaker, Christina Parle of Social Responsibility Speaks, earned $4,000 for her talk on right-handed “privilege.”
“The event was funded by a fraternity and sorority membership fee for programming and events,” a UNC spokesperson told Campus Reform.
UNC’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life required members of fraternities and sororities to send representatives to a talk about diversity, equity, and inclusion, according to an email obtained by Carolina Review, which the university subsequently confirmed to Campus Reform.
An Oct. 18 image from the seminar of Parle decrying “right-handed privilege” soon went viral on social media, with Parle claiming that those who are right-handed have “easier” lives and “more opportunity.”
UNC Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Cassie Hughes Thomas told Campus Reform that Parle’s session was one lecture among “an ongoing educational programming series based on eight dimensions of wellness, which range from financial skills to career building.”
Parle’s lecture occurred during a meeting focused on “intellectual wellness.”
