Indoctrination

The U. of Delaware was caught last week indocrinating students in a manner last seen in communist re-education camps.

Excerpts are taken from the University of Delaware Office of Residence Life Diversity Facilitation Training document, linked in PDF form below.

“A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination. (This does not deny the existence of such prejudices, hostilities, acts of rage or discrimination.)” – Page 3

“REVERSE RACISM: A term created and used by white people to deny their white privilege. Those in denial use the term reverse racism to refer to hostile behavior by people of color toward whites, and to affirmative action policies, which allegedly give ‘preferential treatment’ to people of color over whites. In the U.S., there is no such thing as ‘reverse racism.'” – Page 3

It’s the story you haven’t seen on NBC or CBS or ABC, or the Wash. Post or the NY Times, or Kos, for that matter. From Minding the Campus:

There’s an obvious explanation of why so many university watchers don’t seem to know what’s going on: the news media are extremely reluctant to report on what the increasingly coercive diversity lobby is doing to the campuses.

The brainwashing and indoctrination at the University of Delaware (and anyone who has read the voluminous documents in the case knows that use of these words is surely fair) has been pervasively reported on conservative blogs and right-wing radio. But the left has been silent and the mainstream media have almost universally avoided telling alumni, parents and trustees what is going on.

Well that’s interesting, but it doesn’t feel like news. I mean, many people would say that I was “indoctrinated” by the nuns at the Catholic grammar school I attended at age six. Of course, they treated me with much more respect, and seemed to actually understand that I was a (little) human being, unlike the U. of Delaware, apparently.

But this caught my eye:

The few reports that the mainstream press has carried give the impression that the program runs a discussion group promoting tolerance. But the program clearly rejects give-and-take discussion. It says: “We have successfully moved away from the idea that simple exposure to topics and opportunities to attend is equivalent to education. Our specific education aims, broken down into 28 competency areas now requires us to examine competency attainment” and “learning goals,” i.e., student acceptance of the ideas we are determined to impose. The residential assistants were reporting to administrators on which students were resisting the diversity programming.

“28 competency areas”? Where have I heard that phrase before? Oh yeah – at work, that time at company x, when they made me take that “Code of Ethics” training. Or was that company y? Why, yes, it was. And come to think of it, I had to take it at company z, too. And I do believe the woman from HR at company w apologized for making us sit through that very same on-line presentation…

Ah yes – unless you’ve kept the same job for about the last 20 years, you probably remember taking either “Diversity” Training (TM) or sitting through the “Sexual Harassment” Seminar, where in poorly acted scenes the well groomed woman, age 27, always a brunette of Asian descent, catches a leer from a 35’ish Caucasian male. She wonders aloud (and to her female-African-American co-worker) if she should complain to her boss or “be a nice girl” and keep quiet. She, of course, decides to do the difficult, but correct, thing and turn the rat in. Her male-African-American boss promptly rectifies the situation by calling the lawyers and firing the guy; the company is saved and he promptly praises the brunette for slaying the sexual-harassment dragon.

This is followed by a quiz where it’s determined if you properly learn the lesson. Never trust males over 30. Especially the white ones.

The U. of Delaware was doing nothing that corporate America hasn’t been doing for at least 20 years, at the gentle “urging” of the E.E.O.C. Perhaps their “Residence Diversity Training” has in fact been the epitome of realism as they teach their students about life in the outside world today.
