    White Privilege Workshop

    http://diversity.missouri.edu/worksh...ite-privilege/

    Forgive me if this has already been posted by someone else, but just in case it has not I thought it was imperative that this news be shared.

    The University of Missouri actually has a workshop that is meant to cure white people of their supposed inherent racism.

    Often time within the White culture, people avoid the topic of racism. Many White people interested in learning more about race, privilege and social justice have difficulties finding safe spaces for such conversations.

    Are you racist?
    Does racism only affect people of color?
    How can you confront racism in your community?
    These workshops provide an opportunity for White people to talk honestly about racism in the company of other White people.

    Join us at our workshop scheduled from 10am – 5pm in Stotler Lounge, Memorial Union. Check-in begins at 9:45am. Brunch and lunch provided.

    Participants must attend the entire session. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will receive certificates of recognition.

    Topics for discussion include:

    Understanding White Privilege
    Raising Awareness about Racism
    Coping with White Guilt
    Breaking the Silence of Racism
    Confronting Racism within the White Community
    Building the Courage to Engage in Cross-Racial Dialogues
    Becoming an Ally
    Creating a Network of Support within the White Community
    "Gallantly shall he speak and gifts bring who wishes for woman's love: praise the features of the fair girl. Who courts well will conquer."

    The three highest causes of the true human are: Truth, Honor, and Duty.

    I'm privileged with the knowledge to know better than to eat up this bullshit.
