Feminist prof to teach class lamenting 'American Whiteness':
"A feminist professor at Grinnell College is offering a course this fall on “American Whiteness” that will focus on “attacking racism by making whiteness visible.”
The professor declined to provide a current syllabus, but a previous offering of the same course in 2015 described America as a "racist nation" due to the pernicious effects of "whiteness."
..."It is quite possible to avoid hating white people as individuals..."
...According to the course description, students will learn about the “historical expansion” of whiteness while discussing both the “formal and informal advantages that accrue to whiteness” and potential “challenges to whiteness.”
...“Whiteness is, among much else, a very bad idea,” the syllabus states, quoting Kansas University Professor David Roediger.
“It is quite possible to avoid hating white people as individuals but to criticize the ‘idea of white people in general.’”..."
