While it was bound to happen, I was still shocked when I
read the State University of New York (SUNY) now offers a
course called ‘Stop White People’. It seems Residential
Assistants (RAs) are now receiving some ‘special’ training.
The mission of said class is to give the RAs an overview
of disabilities in higher education. The purpose is to
help others take the next step step in understanding
diversity, privilege, and the society we function within.
Have we, as a society, been dumbed down to the extent
that such a course isn’t laughable? Nobody needs to be
taught there is a difference between between races,
religions, or even beliefs. If one has a brain they can
see and hear said differences.
If you feel you are at a disadvantage, work harder. If
you don’t have tons of money, get a job and work your way
through school. I will say again, the only white people
who cause you any grief are in Washington, D.C., and in
Statehouses around our country.
I don’t care what your skin color, religious beliefs, or
political affiliation is, if you blame your problems on
the general white population you are a whiny loser. The
only person who has absolute control over your life and
its outcome is you.
And if you start a sentences with ‘I can’t do it because
of’, you are the problem not me. That being said, life
isn’t fair. Never has been never will be. It is what YOU
make of it. If the groups pulling this nonsense don’t
figure that out soon this division of our people will be
the downfall of our country.
