Berkeley anti-white protestA California university known for its history of far-left activism is offering to help its students deal with their whiteness.

The "Deconstructing Whiteness" course at Berkeley, offered through the university's student-led DeCal program, will teach participants that whites have a "responsibility to be in movements against 'white supremacy.'"

Derryck Green, a member of the black leadership group Project 21, says such courses are a waste of time unless students plan to join "cultural Marxist" organizations as a career.

Berkeley costs approximately $30,500 per year for classes, and room and board.

"I think that it does a disservice to students," he argues, "because what good is a degree that has these types of courses accompanied with it? It's contradictory to the notion of higher education."

Examining "white privilege" is nothing new on college campuses, including at Berkeley, where students formed a human chain in 2016 that barred white students from going to their classes but let other students pass through.

Campus Reform, the education watchdog, reports that other "DeCal" courses include "Palestine: A Settler-Colonial Analysis" and "Decolonizing Methods in Academic Research."
