"I can choose blemish cover or bandages in 'flesh' color and have them more or less match my skin"
(Jason Howerton) The University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (UCCS) is offering students up to four college credits if they attend the public university’s 14th annual “White Privilege Conference,” Campus Reform reports.
The event, which is organized by UCCS, will focus on teaching whites that they are born with an inherent privilege over other races. A stunning promotional video for the event provides an idea of what the White Privilege Conference is all about.
“I am privileged,” reads black text on an all white background. “I can if I wish arrange to be around people of my race most of the time.”
The video continues:
“I can go shopping fairly assured I won’t be followed or harassed.”
“When I’m told about our national heritage or about ‘civilization’ I am shows that people of my color made it what it is.”
“I can, whether I use checks, credit cards or cash, count on my skin color not to work against my appearing financially reliable.”
“I don’t have to educate my children to be aware of systemic racism for their own daily protection.”
“I can choose blemish cover or bandages in ‘flesh’ color and have them more or less match my skin.”
