Un-Fair – Racism Rears its Ugly Head in Wisconsin

You’re damn right it is, but not in the way that they mean it.  You see, the University of Wisconsin Duluth-Superior is conducting a campaign against racism.  Only they’re being decidedly racist in the way that they do it.

From the article on Mediaite.com:

The University of Wisconsin Duluth-Superior is standing by a controversial campaign launched in 2012 to increase public awareness about racial favoritism by writing “unfair” on students’ faces along with a variety of grievances supposedly shared by minorities against Caucasians.

Here’s one of the graphics they’re using:

Did you read the tag line under “Un-Fair” that says, “It’s hard to see racism when you’re white” or did I just imagine that?  No, I didn’t imagine it.  They’re focusing on how the world is supposedly set up for white people and how bad it is that other races are downtrodden because of it.

I ran into similar thinking back at Palomar Community College.  A student there called me racist and I called her out on it.  I asked what I’d ever done to make her say that.  She tried to dodge by saying that I didn’t know what it was like to be called racial slurs and be spit at.  I came back each time asking for a specific example of what I had PERSONALLY done to make her accuse me of being a racist.  Her response?  She said, “It’s not you – It’s your race.”  I asked her if she was saying I was racist because I’m white and only because of my skin color.  She confirmed that she was.  A few seconds later I think she might have realized what a fool she made of herself because she stormed out in a huff.

Excuse me while I go puke.  If this isn’t racism, I don’t know what is.
