University may introduce whites-only racism workshop

Webster University, located outside St. Louis, is considering a segregated safe space for white students to talk about their racism and white privilege.

The school's new chief diversity officer says they may create a whites-only safe space for Caucasian students. In the segregated space, students would talk about their white privilege and work out their inner racism.

Chief Diversity Officer Vincent Flewellen got the idea for the new program from the bookWitnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It. He organized the program at Washington University when he was director of equity and inclusion there.

This school has 2 blacks only organizations. That is not diversity-that is racist.

“We do not know how to skillfully talk about and address issues of race, racism and white privilege,” said Susan Kools, associate dean for diversity and inclusion in the School of Nursing.

Well, how about you get back to us when you've figured it all out instead of bothering us all with whining about it.
