University of Delaware: Total Waste of Tuition Money

This article from World Net Daily shows that the University of Delaware has become a total waste of students’ tuition money.

University to students: ‘All whites are racist’
Mandatory program ‘treats’ politically incorrect attitudes

A mandatory University of Delaware program requires residence hall students to acknowledge that “all whites are racist” and offers them “treatment” for any incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering the school, according to a civil rights group.

It is well known that most “diversity” training programs, especially mandatory ones, are welfare disguised as jobs. No real job qualifications are required–only the ability to whine phrases like “Whitey is a racist,” perhaps while throwing in Leonard Jeffries’ line about racially superior “sun people” and inferior melanin-deficient “ice people.” Then of course there are Al Sharpton’s favorites like “white interloper,” “diamond merchants,” and “bloodsucking Jews.” (One would admittedly leave out Sharpton’s “n****r whore turning tricks in City Hall,” which is what he called New York Mayor David Dinkins.)

 In any event, this mandatory diversity program is an obvious misuse of tuition money, alumni donations, and taxpayer funds (noting that the University of Delaware is a tax exempt entity), and there are doubtlessly better uses for all these funds. If this is the kind of trash that the University of Delaware is force-feeding its students, we must wonder about the overall quality of its academic programs as a whole.

The World Net Daily article continues:

 The organization cited excerpts from the university’s Office of Residence Life Diversity Education Training documents, including the statement:

 “A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. ‘The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination….'”

This simply underscores the Office of Residence Life Diversity Education total lack of qualification to discuss the subject. The American Heritage Dictionary (1970s vintage) definition of racism is simply, “The notion that one’s own ethnic stock is superior.” Leonard Jeffries’ assertion that Blacks are racially superior “sun people” is just as racist as what racists like David Duke and Tom Metzger say about white racial superiority. Furthermore, one might ask the families of the eight people who were murdered by Al Sharpton’s mobs (Yankel Rosenbaum in Crown Heights, seven more in the arson of Freddy’s Fashion Mart) whether racists of color lack the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination.

It is eminently clear from this “definition” of racism (as well as WND’s description of the program as a whole) that the University of Delaware’s Office of Residence Life lacks the character, maturity, and/or character necessary to serve as role models or instructors for young adults.  Now we will see whether President Patrick Harker is sufficiently responsible to do something about this problem before he ends up with a university that high school seniors will consider only as a “safe school” or their last choice, if at all. Finally, regarding:

 This particular student responded to the question, “When did you discover your sexual identity?” with the terse: “That is none of your damn business,” FIRE said.

    U. Delaware has done the right thing:

    “NEWARK, Del., November 2, 2007—After an intense campaign led by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), the University of Delaware has dropped an ideological reeducation program that was referred to in the university’s own materials as a “treatment” for students’ incorrect attitudes and beliefs. The program’s stated goal was for the approximately 7,000 students in Delaware’s residence halls to adopt highly specific university-approved views on politics, race, sexuality, sociology, moral philosophy, and environmentalism. Following FIRE’s campaign, which called the attention of the national media and the blogosphere to the Orwellian program, university President Patrick Harker terminated the program, effective immediately.”
