This is a tweet from a young woman, Nora Loretto, reacting to the tragedy of the Humbolt hockey team. It illustrates the spirit of today's young people, many of whom (it turns out) agree with her.

I'm trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.

The entire country except the legions of women and minorities that object to maleness and whiteness, which just naturally reduces the empathy they want to waste on such dregs.

It must be true, it's being taught in the schools!

Anti-racism is code for anti-white stuff. Amongst the campus dims, it usually goes along with being anti-cis-gendered men. Some of these clucks believe it!

TC, if you think I am trying to persuade you of anything, you'd be wrong.

I like to use your comments to illustrate the superficiality and ignorance embodied in your defence of the absurd. You can be counted on to parrot the party line.

I think they know anyway.

This is the kind of thing that is happening right here in River City, sports fans.

And at a university near you, very likely.

LEVY: Kids invited to white privilege boot camp
Sue-Ann Levy
Published:
April 10, 2018
Toronto SUN News Toronto & GTA

Now I’ve heard everything.

It seems organizers of the upcoming White Privilege conference at Ryerson/Social Justice U are not merely content to convince adults that white people are worthy of contempt.

They are also offering a special one-day boot camp for students as young as 11 where they will be coached (indoctrinated) on how to “dismantle white supremacy, white privilege and other forms of oppression.”

I repeat: This is in addition to the three-day conference for adults that will address a “socio-political system that distributes power, privilege and benefits unequally among groups in societies.”

Indeed folks. I can’t make this up.

The equity engineers in the office of Ryerson’s vice-president, equity and community inclusion plan to hold a one-day institute for Grade 6-12 students to explore critical topics like diversity, social justice, colonization and oppression. [emphasis added]

According to the documents promoting the boot camp, students who attend will be taught, in a “safe space,” of course, how to SNAP — SEE the many manifestations of white supremacy; NAME white supremacy and white privilege; ACT to dismantle white supremacy and PROCEED as leaders to plant seeds of change. [Emphasis added]
Sticking with the seeds analogy, methinks the equity engineers at ole Social Justice U are trying to germinate the next generation of social justice warriors/snowflakes.

But seriously, these equity engineers are truly becoming a caricature of themselves.

Equity and community inclusion spokesman Dayo Kefentse confirmed 200 students have signed up so far for the three institutes (divided according to age) which run on May 9, prior to the actual three-day white privilege conference for adults.

If one day of indoctrination is not enough, there is also a special two-day special youth conference which will allow students “more time for in-depth and internal reflection of white privilege.”

Defentse says it is their hope that the youth will come away from the institutes with an understanding of “different forms of privilege and oppression” and will learn ways to treat people in a “fair anti-oppressive” manner.

Indeed, the indoctrination comes at a bargain basement price — $19 for students attending the one day boot camp and $29 if they want to further their exploration of white supremacy the following two days. Attendance includes lunch and snacks each day with a halal/vegetarian/vegan/nut-free/gluten-free menu if one so chooses.

Be still my politically-correct heart.

It strikes me that by focussing on “white supremacy,” the program for youth is at odds with the ultimate goal of the Ryerson’s equity engineers — namely to build an “equitable and inclusive society.”

But Defentse countered that all of us “experience some form of privilege” and youth — even 11-year-olds — will acquire practical tools for “navigating difficult and other emotional conversations.”

Asked what business Ryerson/Social Justice U has holding such a conference (especially when they have so many donors one would classify as privilege white people), Kefentse said Ryerson does not shy away from “difficult issues.

“Instead we are making an effort to create safe, ethical spaces to have respectful and honest conversations in the spirit of open dialogue,” she said.

Sigh. Never mind oppressed. I’m feeling depressed at the inanity of it all.

This is 'how the literally teach racism. The bigger problem is that it is in the coursework. In English classes, in History classes, in Philosophy clases, in everything but science, technology, engineering and math, where there is real, objective material to teach before getting to the heinous record of the males of the white race. TC can probably tell you more about that.

For me, white males are the people who built the modern world. Not me, but people like me. They invented electricity, for Christ's sake! Never mind plumbing, and central heating, and refrigerators, and ... well, EVERYTHING! So they deserve special respect.

All kidding aside, I hope the gentle reader sees and understands that this won't stop util it's stopped.

What's more 'white male' than electricity? That should be enough.

It's sad when you extol white males, and the twisted people think that's an attack on women. It just shows you how much of feminism is a hateful attempt to humiliate men. They no longer have a positive agenda -- just humiliating men.

I think TC's empty. The wind has gone out of the bag.

Um.... you dont even see your ignorance here ! LOL

Its sad enough that you want to make up history and do so whilst ignorant, but thats not my problem when you post such idiotic stuff. My job is to counter your parade of ignorance.

Got any other news you just made up ?

You are seriously embarassing yourself.

What does TC mean with all the chortling about the role white males played in the development of electricity. Maybe he can clarify, because:
Benjamin Franklin -- white male
Luigi Galvani -- white male
Allessano Volta -- white male
Michael Faraday -- white male
Andre Ampere -- white male
Georg Ohm -- white male
Alexander Graham Bell -- white male
Thomas Edison -- white male
Nicola Tesla -- white male
and so it goes ... white males all the way back to Greece.

So I hope he can explain what he means about history. And while he's at it, maybe he isn't responding to the 'white privilege boot-camp' that Ryerson is running.

Oh my...move the goalposts ? So very 'Bugs" of you .

So...tell us what was your original statement? Because whatever you are posting below is irrelevant and a typical (for you anyway) obfuscation.

Doesn't the article on the White Privilege Boot Camp give people an indication of what s going on on university campuses? And aren't these attitudes exactly the same as what are being expressed by this freelance (ie unemployed) writer? These attitudes are influential in higher education even where it hasn't yet led to incidents.

I don't think TC has a point. Did he ever?

Such a simple question and you cannot answer it.

No surprise.

I guess you are smart enough to have spotted the folly of your 'white man did everything'
doofus assertion.

And then...moved the goalposts. Dishonest debater. tsk tsk

TC could merely state the question, and save time. What question is he talking about?

I hate to admit it, but I actually scanned this whole thread and I have no clue. But I do know he's running away from the obvious fact that (no white men) = (no electricity).

Oh, and air travel. Did I mention the invention of airplanes and jet engines and all those other greasy little devices that make it possible for you sit in a chair 7 miles above the earth, plinking away at Candy Crush Saga, or having iced drinks served with the movie ... while you cross half a continent in a few hours?

That is another white male domain.

Oh, and modern plumbing ... how about "the pill"?

Modern plumbing is an invention?

There is no white male in electricity.

Umm....one Uni. Nice try tho.

One does not correlate to many. Simple really for one with an education. Sorry bro , does not include you.
