The University of Wisconsin is expanding their course offerings to include a class centered around social justice.
The course will be titled, “The Problem of Whiteness” and will focus on “ethical issues in the white community.”
Breitbart News reports:
The University of Wisconsin, Madison is offering a course in the spring semester entitled “The Problem of Whiteness,” which aims to ask “what an ethical white identity entails, what it means to be white, and consider the journal Race Traitor’s motto, ‘treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.’”
The syllabus for the course, which will be offered by the University of Wisconsin’s African Cultural Studies department during the upcoming spring semester, claims that students will be asked to consider “what it really means to be white.”
In an interview with the college’s conservative watchdog website, The College Fix, the course’s instructor claimed that the class was centered around forcing students to consider “what it means to be white.”
Breitbart News reports:
“Whites rarely or never questioned what it is to be white,” Assistant Professor Damon Sajnani said. “So you go through life taking it for granted without ever questioning or critically interrogating it.”
Sajnani went on to claim that he wants his students to understand that race isn’t a biological or cultural construct, but rather a political and social construct. He claims that because of racial oppression, African-Americans are constantly forced to consider what it means to be black, and whites typically don’t think what it means to be white.
The course instructor claimed that he is a far-left instructor, but that he views both parties as “tools of the American right wing.”
This school program is just another example of social justice campaigns overtaking educational platforms.
Liberal Millennials have taken to protesting social issues especially.
Many public and private universities have created “safe spaces” for minority students who allegedly feel threatened by the white population.
Schools such as the University of Wisconsin who play into the hands of progressive social justice warriors are only contributing to the social divide that is apparently evident in school systems.
The officials at the University of Wisconsin are supporting the creation of the class, and no official complaint has been launched.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:
“We believe this course, which is one of thousands offered at our university, will benefit students who are interested in developing a deeper understanding of race issues,” the statement also says.
“All UW–Madison students are welcome in courses like this, which is not designed to offend individuals or single out an ethnic group.”
