Below is one more bit of info on Donald J. Trump’s Presidential campaign. Always keep yourself up-to-date!:
Give this school an “F” for fatuous.
A publicly funded branch of the State University of New York is facing a massive public relations “fail” amid a backlash over a training program for resident assistants that apparently carried an anti-white curriculum out of the university classrooms and right into students’ hallways and dorm rooms.
And clueless university administrators don’t seem to understand exactly what the problem is.
For starters, the program is titled #StopWhitePeople2K16, which might be a clue to an educated mind that maybe there’s something just a little “anti-white” about it.
And a description published by The Binghamton Review confirms it:
“The premise of this session is to help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” the description of the training reads. “Learning about these topics is a good first step, but when encountered with ‘good’ arguments from uneducated people, how do you respond? This open discussion will give attendees the tools to do so, and hopefully expand upon what they already may know.”
The bureaucratic code words are laughable. In Barack Obama’s America — the America of Black Lives Matter gangsters and grown men able to use public restrooms with little girls — “diversity” actually means anybody who’s not a white guy who likes women.
Privilege, of course, means white guys who like women. (Though it can also sometimes mean white women, depending on the topic.)
The “uneducated people” part doesn’t refer to incoming university students who haven’t cracked a calculus textbook yet. It means those middle class 18- and 19-year-olds who haven’t yet been fully cleansed of their faulty upbringings and indoctrinated into the progressive social justice ethos.
In a statement released to the local television station, WICZ, university Vice President for Student Affairs Brian Rose called the provocative name of the training program a harmless play on words.
The program title “#StopWhitePeople2K16” was drawn from a familiar hashtag in use on Twitter, and was not invented by the program facilitators. It is my understanding that the hashtag is commonly used ironically.
Ah, the age of irony spawned by the oracles of social media. Well, there’s nothing “ironic” about the words “diversity” and “privilege” in the current college atmosphere of “microaggressions” and “safe spaces.” And the “uneducated people” part is crystal clear.
Turning college into a re-education camp — sounds like the stuff of a sci-fi movie set in the not-so-distant future.
Writing in the Binghamton Review, SUNY Binghamton student Howard Hecht:
For a university dedicated to providing an inclusive environment, calling an event “#StopWhitePeople2K16” seems counterproductive at best. The name is divisive, politically motivated, and does nothing to actually prevent racism. If anything, it seems to imply that the “uneducated people” mentioned in the event description must be white.
Other SUNY Binghamton students weren’t very hot on the topic either. Check out the WICZ report here.
Actually, given that the college’s student population is 54 percent white, it’s a good bet that most of the kids who are being exposed to these kinds of indoctrinated RAs are paying good money to go to a school dedicated to “stopping” them just for the color of their skin.
The story put SUNY Binghamton in the national news for reasons no school wants. It wasn’t just conservative media that picked up on the controversy, though. Mainstream networks were forced to cover it too (apologetically, it seemed.) On social media, the reaction was brutal.

“Stop White People” is trending?
Why don’t all of you white haters just go live elsewhere? Whites won ‘t follow you. #stopwhitepeople

Trying to put a lid on the controversy, the vice president for student affairs’ statement included a description of the actual event itself that was as risible as the statement of its goals. Not to mention the sort of academic-speak that sounds as though it were trying to cover a multitude of sins with lofty-sounding language.
Topically the discussion in the program was far-ranging, student driven and explored reverse racism, the relationship of communities of color with police, whiteness, crime and segregation in an open conversation format.
Does any serious person think a conversation about “whiteness” is going to end well for the white kids involved in the current college atmosphere? Or that any discussion about the “relationship of communities of color with police” will be a pep rally for cops?
The vice president for student affairs office can try to pawn off the blatant, despicable discrimination involved in this RA training program all it wants, but the “educated” part of the population is going to figure it out pretty quickly.
American college students – white and black – deserve better than that. And the backlash the program got proves Americans know it.
Please remember, do not accept the lamestream media’s partisanship and don’t permit them to prevent you. Make America Great Again!
