    Fewer Than 10 People Show Up For UNC-Charlotte White Privilege Workshop

    Fewer Than 10 People Show Up For UNC-Charlotte White Privilege Workshop

    “two were students there not as participants but as journalists mainly to observe”

    The school has over 30,000 students. What does this tell you?

    The College Fix reports:

    On campus of 30,000 students, less than 10 attend university’s white privilege workshop

    Only nine students showed up to take part in the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s workshop series focused on teaching students about white privilege and related topics.

    The total number of students in the audience for the first “White Consciousness Conversation,” held Sept. 10, was nine — but two were students there not as participants but as journalists mainly to observe. One was from The College Fix and another from the Niner Times campus newspaper.

    Of the remaining seven students, five are members of the university’s conservative Young Americans for Freedom chapter, who were there more out of curiosity and concern about the nature of the seminar and its taxpayer-funded narrative as opposed to learning about how they allegedly perpetuate racism and inequality as Americans with white skin.

    Finally, the other two students attended because their professors offered them extra credit to do so, they told The Fix.

    With that, it appears the relatively new “White Consciousness Conversations” at UNC Charlotte, which boasts a student population of nearly 30,000, drew .02 percent of its student population.

    Facilitators of the workshop did not respond to a subsequent request for comment from The College Fix about what they thought of the event’s low turnout.

    Glad to see there are still some sane students at NC campuses.

    According to Robin DiAngelo, a public face of this stuff who “aided” Evergreen State in surmounting their racial problems (what a recommendation!) there’s nothing you can do about your white privilege other than to apologize, put others ahead of you so you have less and they have more, and just keep doing it. Oh yeah and shaming others who don’t feel the need to do the same.

    The Carolinas would never have existed were it not for under-privileged Americans trying to eek out a living.

    Privilege? Like hell! It was hard labor, at every level of the agricultural development.

    The course sponsors call it a start.

    It really doesn’t tell me much, actually. We hold extracurricular events all the time on my campus of 13,000, and only a handful show up for even the SJW-type events. Students are busy, and much of our programming isn’t something they want to spend their time on.

      If you were paying attention, it would tell you the students at UNCC think the whole thing is a joke and did not attend. Two, and those two only for extra credit.

        I stand by my comment, which is based on more than 20 years’ experience trying to lure students to ANY extracurricular programming.

        Maybe some did think it was a joke. But they think any non-required thing is a joke. Hell, a lot of them think classes are a joke; they don’t go to those, either.
