    College of New Jersey Advises White Students to Think About Their Racial Privilege

    “Racial Privilege: A Primer”

    This was part of an event put on by the school’s Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

    N.J. college tells white students to think about their ‘racial privilege’

    A New Jersey college hosted a diversity workshop for students and faculty that asked participants to explore their “racial privilege” as part of its “Diversity Education Series” on campus.

    The College of New Jersey’s Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion hosted an event called “Racial Privilege: A Primer” during which, according to The Signal student newspaper, participants were told to “put on their racial clothing” to explore the effects of racial privilege.

    Participants during the meeting, according to the Signal, were asked at one point to close their eyes and answer 50 questions based on activist Peggy McIntosh’s “Unpacking the White Knapsack.” White participants were asked to think about how the presence of privileges had affected their lives, while people of color were asked to think about the negative impacts of the absence of privileges.

    Students also discussed their feelings of privilege in a group after the activity, with the goal of understanding what privilege meant to students who were white and to those of color.

    Cynthia Fulford, assistant director of the Support for Teacher Education program at TCNJ told Campus Reform in an email, “The invisible privileges afforded to a group allow them to believe they get ahead based solely on working hard and doing the right things.”

    I thought about it: Affirmative action = black privege.

    Time to end it, or we’ll suffer through another ‘obama’ fraud.

    I just retired after 40 years with the federal government. For all 40 of those years, half of which were in Human Resources, I saw first-hand the racial privilege we are all enduring in this country: hiring and promotions were far more often than not awarded to lesser qualified and even completely unqualified blacks, Hispanics, and women, all in the name of diversity and meeting an illegal quota system. Better and even best qualified white males were passed over countless times in order to meet those quotas. So don’t talk to me about “racial privilege.”
