Public University Faculty Promote “White Privilege” Training in Staff Meetings

Western Washington University White Privilege Training Staff Only

Until recently, compulsory monthly meetings, officially called “[Dean of Students] Unit Cultural Competency Staff Meetings,” have been the norm for faculty members at Western Washington University (WWU).

These meetings, where students are not allowed, can be best described as indoctrination sessions and have replaced the staff’s regular standard performance reviews. They “occur approximately once a month,” according to Campus Reform.

Staff members are sworn to secrecy and told not to discuss what goes on in these meetings with anyone else.

One anonymous staff member wrote in an email to Campus Reform,

“At the beginning of the Cultural Competency Staff Meetings several employees felt uncomfortable talking about sensitive racial topics, so we were told not to share conversations from the meetings outside of [them],” and that “Some people still didn’t feel comfortable so the Dean of Students said the meetings are optional if you don’t feel comfortable attending.”

It’s no wonder. Reading materials provided for the left-wing staff meetings included works such as  “White Privilege Shapes the U.S.” by Robert Jensen.

Fearing retribution, one WWU employee told Campus Reform anonymously that, “The primary theme of the meetings makes people considered privileged feel guilty and minorities feel self-pity.”

Upcoming secret meeting victim identity topics include

  • ‘gender privilege’
  • ‘heterosexual privilege’
  • ‘nationality privilege’
  • ‘language privilege’
  • ‘intersectionality.’

Go Vikings!

Pity me! Pity me! Yeah man!
I’ve got more excuses for the way I am!
