The salt of the earth is now the enemy. That is the message being delivered to incoming students at Southern University of New York (SUNY) in Binghamton. In a training course for residential assistants, the STATE SPONSORED UNIVERSITY is offering #StopWhitePeople2K16 as part of the introductory program for RAs.
The presenters of the course, Ciaran Slattery, Nicholas Pulakos, and Urenna Nwogwugwu, are all RAs at the state-funded college, which describes itself as New York’s highest-ranking public college. They state their purpose is to “help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” presumably the “white” society they plan to “stop” at the event.
The three RAs claim they will give “#StopWhitePeople2K16” course attendees the “tools” to respond to “uneducated people” with “‘good’ arguments.”
Oh, no. That’s not racist, classist or prejudiced against those who have not matriculated for one reason or another. Nah. It’s all done in the name of revoked “white privilege,” especially against the men who do jobs like show up after a thunderstorm and turn the power back on, fix automobiles, catch the wild salmon that graces china in the nation’s country clubs. The people who disdain the reality that colleges and universities teach on a daily basis: the world needs open borders, easy access to free money. That “service” will sustain a nation rather than prudently using natural resources and ingenuity to produce actual products that will last longer than the plastic crap imported from Asia.
Where was I? Oh, yeah, so these college-aged geniuses – and I use that word loosely – have decided to give the new kiddies coming into their care talking points for dealing with…white people who are informed enough to know its okay to disagree with people who are spouting a party line that will do nothing more than impoverish them.
How’s that for a turn of events in America where the people who built the place can now be dissed with full approval of the “educated”? This white girl thinks it’s a disgrace. Those who have gone before us and are seasoned in the way of the world deserve to be respected, not treated like an enemy within the gates.
