Notre Dame’s Class on Shaming White People

Notre Dame made a controversial move this semester by scheduling a for-credit class on white privilege. Shrouded in secrecy, this seminar requires students to apply for and receive departmental approval before actually enrolling—an unusual departure from normal university procedures. Moreover, three professors teach ten students in this one-credit class, while only a handful of Notre Dame courses are taught by more than one professor.  The three professors are. Emmanuel Cannady, Iris Outlaw and Ke’Ana Bradley. All are African-American, and the course is listed as sociology and Africana Studies.

    This has to mark the end of what was once known as “America”.

    Just a power grab posing as social justice.

    • Anytime someone mentions social justice expect the opposite.

      It’s cultural Marxist disinformation and revolutionary rage.
      The logical result of such rage is genocide.

    The “studies” in the course title is a sure sign of academic fraud.

    • I imagine a very small demand for such skill in the real world.

      • Just a thought

        …which is why they are working so hard to burn down the real world, and replace it with their delusional nightmare fantasy version.

    Three teachers “teaching” a class of 10 specially selected students? Sounds like a cult, not a course.

    • And a soviet style make work program for the politically correct.

    • David Murrell

      Sounds like a wasteful of money to me.

    It isn’t condemnable racism when black people do it.

    • pdxnag

      These proud racists are as non-racist as the Congressional Black Caucus.

  • There is no doubt, racism exists. But contrary to PC beliefs it is a two way street.

    Blaming whitey for all social ills simply today’s acceptable PC racism.

    Black privilege, is never talked about. It is quite toxic and takes a large toll on the black community. At the same time liberals blame whitey for the problems caused by black privilege.

    Black privilege is when black young men, murder other black young men. And then the black community, living with the “snitches get stitches” meme, refuse to help the (black and/or white) police apprehend the perpetrator. This means the black young male murderer continues to roam the black community. So he is the recipient of black privilege. This is a privilege white society would not allow to white murderers in their midst.

    The net effect of this black privilege is a less safe black community. A community where Jesse Jackson is quoted as saying “There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

    As long as American Universities are obsessed with “getting even with whitey”, they will continue to ignore real problems that could easily be fixed. Denying “black privilege” is one.

    When every you say black people are on welfare its racism but to say white people on welfare its fine.

  • Hard Little Machine

    So is it a course for black ‘political activists’ or is it political reeducation for the white people?

  • Just a thought

    Somebody needs to tell Kafka that his sur-reality is ready.

  • David Murrell

    Way back in 1969, as a leftist liberal arts major going to a Catholic university in the United States, I, along with members of our “peace” group, took a political science course on racial politics. The teacher was some black man brought in form the outside. I was so enthused, I read the entire text during the first five days of the course.

    Yet, after the course, the “peace” group got together, and discovered that we white leftists all got “C’s” for the course, except for one black fellow who hung out with us, who got an “A”. So much for a course such as this — it was quite useless overall, except in teaching us black racist bigotry.

    Same thing here: this Notre Dame course is utterly useless, for later in life, except for teaching racist hate from the Afro American side.

    If you find White Privedge to be so offensive, get the Hell out of our culture, our civilization. Go be black in Africa. Or Haiti. I hear they are all nice and black, as are Liberia, Rwanda, Congo, Nigeria, Darfur,,,,,,the black run garden spots,,,,,,

    you Negroes aren’t oppressed, you’re depressed that whites are vastly better at the whole society building, civilizing thing that you’re just jealous.

    This winter we saw the White privilege in Toronto as a homeless White male froze to death in a transit stop Shelter while brown illegals and refugees get welfare and housing along with legal aid and FREE health care.

    That’s some privilege to freeze to death like some dog left out side while Toronto is now a sanctuary city for thousands from the USA to pour in for the Social services.
    Once they kill off all the white people in Toronto, who will they blame for the crimes , unemployment and oppression when there is only 50-shades of brown to point at.

    • Just a thought

      “social justice” in action.

      • Gary

        True, and when all the white folks are gone from Toronto, who the heck will minorities blame their problems on.

    • jayme

      Ottawa does not have enough spaces in its shelters but what is the not job left more interested in giving refugees free health care.

      • Gary

        I saw a report that shelters can get $70 a night per Cot , this while there was a survey to show the $125 million a year for the homeless only came up with just over 800 actual homeless.
        I did the math to see that it would be cheaper to buy a Hotel and have volunteers look after the laundry and cleaning as the homeless get a clean room every night and a shower if they want .
        Hell, we could throw in a Fruit basket and still save $$$$$ Millions.

    If my child was taking this course I would immediately terminate all payment for their education.

  • WalterBannon

    Its just another example of the garbage social science that the left produces like shit from a goose. How is this latest meme any different from the ones that Hitler was selling? Same crowd, new memes, just like the old memes. They always need to create classes and divisions to keep their war moving.

  • Exile1981

    3 profs for 10 students? That seems like an easy teaching gig to me; I guess it’s to give them lots of hands on indoctrination. The fact they want to control who attends tells me they are afraid of people finding out what they are teaching.

    They are training to be on Al Sharpton’s staff.
