This is racism in the name of social justice. Progressives are taking us backwards as a country.

Mandatory University of Wisconsin Law School seminar tells students ‘there are no exceptional White people’

A mandatory “re-orientation” seminar for first-year students at the University of Wisconsin Law School allegedly instructed them to share racial slurs and claimed “there are no exceptional White people,” according to reports.

Students were asked before the Friday presentation to review pamphlets, one of which claimed “colorblindness” can negate the life experiences, norms and cultural values of people of color.

“By saying we are not different, that you don’t see the color, you are also saying you don’t see your whiteness. This denies the people of colors’ experience of racism and your experience of privilege,” the pamphlet read.

The two-hour lecture was held by self-described “social justice educator” Joey Oteng, who used it as a “follow-up to the DEI session” that students attended at the beginning of the fall semester, according to Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Lauren L. Devine.

“Re-orientation is intended to do just that – reorient you now that you have your first semester of law school behind you and a new semester ahead,” Devine wrote in an email to students. She also told students to review an article on “28 Common Racist Attitudes and Behaviors” and finish a “Race Timeline Worksheet” prior to the seminar.

Part of “The 28 Common Racist Attitudes and Behaviors” article suggests people of color cannot be racist.

“Let’s first define racism with this formula: Racism =racial prejudice + systemic, institutional power. To say people of color can be racist, denies the power imbalance inherent in racism,” the handout said.

Another section of the pre-activity materials claimed White people benefit from racial oppression regardless of their actions, noting that “there are no exceptional White people.”
