A guest lecturer at Boston University said last month that white people who judge others as individuals instead of by their skin color are “dangerous,” according to a report in the College Fix.

The lecture, entitled “What Does It Mean To Be White,” was given by University of Washington Professor Robin DiAngelo, a white woman.

DiAngelo, who according to her website specializes in “whiteness studies,” added that people who say they’ve been taught to treat everyone the same deny black people their reality.

So basically that "content of their character" stuff spoken by MLK is now racist. Let's add it to the list:

Everything Is Racism | Hire a civil rights lawyer. You're a victim of racism.

Apparently, white folks must assume a great deal more importance than they already possess ! ... I hope professors perform many more costly studies on their favorite subject, white folks of course !!! ... Keep up the great work !!!

The left needs to go p*$$ up a rope, already. Sick of these double standard aholes.

What, exactly, does that dumb hag think calling everyone who isn't white, "people of color" do? Bet she doesn't have a problem with that, does she?

Yet another liberal ****bag. I am sick of ****bags talking about white people.

In 1984 there was a character who fanatically supported the party, and spoke with great intelligence about how essentially good and necessary it was. Winston knew that the man was doomed to be killed one day, because he was not docile and stupid enough in his praise. This is sort of like that. It is not enough that you do what you thought that wanted, you have to obey some secret standard that only they know.

It is in situations like this that perhaps I should treat my cisgender and straight White male privileges as a badge of honor?
