Berkeley anti-white protestA university's attempt to shame white people only embarrasses minorities who appear to be victims, says a conservative black activist. 

The "Conversations on Whiteness" workshop sessions at the University of Michigan aimed to teach whites about dealing with their "whiteness" in the name of social justice.

Whether the goal was intentional or not, Derryck Green of Project 21 says the session reinforced a sense of shame in minorities as well.

Man covering mouth (censorship)"It reinforces this notion that nonwhite minorities can only be dealt with, or engaged with, at a condescending level, like they're not really people," he tells OneNewsNow.

Anti-white "white privilege" courses are seemingly a trend at universities in recent years but The College Fix reports the model for the UM workshops was introduced a University of Iowa professor in 2007.

Green

Green says parents need to be on the lookout for these left-leaning, indoctrinating sessions to which their children might be exposed – and maybe second-guess sending them off to college at all.

"Because if this is what their students are going to be receiving at the expense of quality education," he asks, "what's the purpose of college?"
