Lecturers are told to attend workshops and examine how their ‘whiteness’ makes them unwittingly racist

University lecturers are being asked to attend workshops to help them understand how their ‘whiteness’ makes them unwittingly racist.

Classes at UK universities are telling lecturers to acknowledge their ‘white privilege’ and examine the idea that white people enjoy advantages in life simply because of the colour of their skin.

Posters for the seminars say that black staff and students are discriminated against regularly.
