    Columbia University Holding Five-Week Long Series on ‘Deconstructing Whiteness’

    “to equip students with the time, space, and skills for the self-reflection and processing of privilege that is necessary to meaningfully dismantle systems of racial oppression”

    What is the academic value of this? The progressive agenda is eclipsing the pursuit of actual scholarship.

    Campus Reform reports:

    Columbia hosts ‘deconstructing whiteness’ workshop for ‘white-identified students’

    For weeks, Columbia University Health has been hosting Zoom workshops as part of a series titled “From Ally to Accomplice at Columbia: Working Group for Examining and Deconstructing Whiteness to Mitigate Racial Trauma.”

    The weekly online “interactive curriculum,” which began July 7 and concludes Monday, is designed for “white-identified students” to “engage in exploration of their white identities and build community and accountability around deconstructing whiteness and white privilege to facilitate the development of an antiracist lens.”

    “This virtual group aims to begin to equip students with the time, space, and skills for the self-reflection and processing of privilege that is necessary to meaningfully dismantle systems of racial oppression from a position that has privilege,” the university explained on its website.

    In an email that was reportedly sent to Columbia University Law students, the department said that the workshop “will not be a support group for white students. Nor will it be comfortable or easy.”

    “What it will be is a meaningful, challenging step for those who feel called in and ready to start taking their appropriate place in creating a more just Columbia community,” the email continued.

    “There are numerous ways to address the issue of structural racism. This program is intended to engage students from a public health perspective,” Columbia Health Associate Director of Communications Gayle Gatchalian told Campus Reform. “The intent is to provide an alternative angle by which to tackle the issue.”

    How about a Working Group for Examining and Deconstructing Blackness to Mitigate Racial Trauma in basketball and football?

    This sort of thing is to be expected from Columbia University since its president Lee Bollinger was a member of the committee responsible for awarding the Pukelizter Prize to the Scumberger Times for its fraudulent history 1619 Project. So far his role in that disgrace has been covered up–he should be forced to answer this dereliction of academic standards.

    Sounds like an idea for Woodie Allen’s next movie project.
