University hosts training on how to 'reduce the impact of white privilege' - The College Fix:
"Western Washington University is scheduled to host a workshop today that aims to “reduce the impact of white privilege on social and academic relations,” according to campus officials.
Part of its Campus Equity and Inclusion Forums, the event at the public university is designed for faculty, staff and students, who will use presentations, interactive exercises and facilitated discussions to learn “how to reduce the expression and effects of white privilege,” the university’s website states.
...“I think the harmful effects of ‘white privilege’ are that it can reflect an insensitivity to the subtle effects of both racism and lack of awareness of the differences between how people of color and people called ‘white’ are treated in everyday life,” Jimerson told The College Fix via email.
“Not being aware that other people face daily, often subtle, discrimination can make white people insensitive to these debilitating effects.”
The seminar is open to everybody, but Jimerson acknowledged it’s especially helpful for white people..."
