    "All Whites are Racist"

    WorldNetDaily: University to students: 'All whites are racist'

    Bottom line, U of Delaware's "cultural awareness" class has officially "jumped the shark".

    I hear that you have to be officially brainwashed at the "White People Are Evil" class to graduate ISU now, as well.

    Note to self: Diversity didn't make the US strong. Absorbing different races and nationalities, while developing a unified purpose made the US strong. Diversity turns us into the Former Yugoslavia.

    Actually I usually find it the other way around. The ethnic groups are much more racist than whites.

    It's amazing that racism is ok, as long as you are doing it to the majority. I really think BS like this does way more to harm race relations than anything else.

    Re: "All Whites are Racist"

    You know, this mandatory "treatment" is going to backfire. Telling people they MUST believe one way is more likely to make them think exactly the opposite. They are going to say it is the ethnic groups forcing this upon them, and they will fight back against that.

    If my forced womens studies class taught me anything at ISU, it taught me bad things.

    I think everyone is racist in nature, and it's what you do with that knowledge that is important.

    Exactly. Everyone think their nationality, race, creed, etc. are the "best" ones to be.

    Note to herbiedoobie: Don't allow fanatics to change the definition of diversity. "Absorbing different races and nationalities, while developing a unified purpose" is indeed a great example of valuing diversity.

    Keeping people with different backgrounds separate and at odds (e.g., former Yugoslavia, the University of Delaware’s Office of Residence) is not valuing diversity, it is racism.

    Cultural pride is certainly normal, as is being drawn to, and more comfortable with people who share similar features and backgrounds. However, I fail to see that value of trying to make everyone feel guilty about who they are.

    Right. But that doesn't make you racist by any means.

    Re: "All Whites are Racist"

    There was a thread awhile back about UDelaware being racist because they don't want to play Delaware State (a school with predominantly minority and lower income students). I'm sure this lunacy is over-reaction to those charges.

    That is so cool. I will use it, from now on.

    You are so very right.

    Re: "All Whites are Racist"

    Has anybody read that weekly newspaper that is published by the Nation of Islam?

    They regularly preach that the black race is superior to all other races and that their should be no comingling of the races.

    To diverge from the topic, I live in an area where whites are the minority population. There are a number of organizations in this region that utilize "native preference" in their hiring. Native preference goes way beyond affirmative action. It means that a native must be hired over any other race as long as a native applied for the job announcement and meets the minimum job requirements.

    Kinda. I wouldn't called it racist though.

    Its like anything else, anything that is outside the norm causes a conflict within humans which they must resolve. For example, I stayed at a cousins house in Pheonix that is VERY well off. The change from my normal financial environment created an uncomfortable or uneasy feeling initially.
