The further we go along the critical race theory path, the more it begins to feel like there’s very little daylight between these so-called “antiracists” and actual, true-blue racists. For instance: Segregating people by race! We’ve already seen this phenomenon at other schools; one of them, a couple of months ago, created a café for “non people of color” – you know, the people we used to call “white.” And now, at the University of Kentucky, we learn that students training to be Residential Assistants were segregated according to race and sent to different racial presentations.
Humorously, the trainings came to light via the Campus Bias Tip Line, which is a new thing that many schools have developed to give students an avenue through which they can complain about microaggressions and other racial grievances that they dream up while distracted from their studies. From the tip line, these trainings were reported to the conservative Young America’s Foundation. This is how we now know that white RA trainees were corralled into a “White Accountability Space” and taught about the “41 common racist behaviors and attitudes of white people.”
The Daily Wire has more on this training:
Number one on the list states that white people “believe they have ‘earned’ what they have, rather than acknowledge the extensive white privilege and unearned advantages they receive” and “believe that if people of color just worked harder…” The list also includes claims that white people don’t “notice the daily indignities that people of color experience; deny them and rationalize them away with PLEs (perfectly logical explanations),” “resent taking direction from a person of color,” and tend to ask “people of color to repeat what they have said.”
Brandon Colbert from UK’s Bias Incident Support Services, offered a presentation for the trainings, allegedly talking about “microaggressions and microinvalidations in the workplace and the harm that they cause.”
As YAF’s Kara Zupkus reported, Colbert’s previous tweets have “denounced the American Flag, National Anthem, and Independence Day all as being the stuff that makes [America] racist.”
In a statement, YAF’s University of Kentucky chapter president Parker Bowman said the segregation was self-evidently reprehensible.
“This action by the university to segregate RA training is abhorrent,” Bowman said. “For a campus that prides itself on diversity, this is taking a step in the wrong direction. We should be talking to each other, not separating ourselves based on immutable characteristics.”
Yeah, well, no argument here. But color-blindness and integration are the New Racism and segregation and pointing fingers is the new Antiracism.
We can’t imagine what could possibly go wrong.
