The politically correct culture that has infected our college campuses has finally reached the apex of absurdity. Schools like the University of Vermont are now hosting their very own re-education camps, to teach their Caucasian students about the racial biases they never knew they had.
Between the 13th and 15th of November, the school ran their “Examining White Privilege” retreat for all students who “self-identified as white.” According to the description of the event, it was designed to give students the “opportunity to conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lens,” and “recognize and understand white privilege from an individual experience.” These students were asked “tough” questions like “What does it mean to be white?” and “How does whiteness impact you?”
Not surprisingly, some of the intellectual zombies who attended the retreat gave it rave reviews. “I enjoyed the Examining White Privilege retreat because it provided a safe space to learn about yourself and others and how we experience and understand privilege and systems of oppression,” wrote one student.
So much for the post racial society that liberals have been clamoring for all these years. Rather than a society where everyone has moved past their racial differences, we now run camps where students volunteer to flagellate themselves over their perceived whiteness. I can’t imagine seeing this PC culture become more ridiculous than this, but I’ve been wrong before.
