Brown Helps Queer Minorities Overcome Desires

From the website, Campus Reform:


Upcoming workshop at Brown Univ. set to help queer minorities overcome attraction to queer whites

By Timothy Dionisopoulos | March 19, 2013

A group of Brown University students appear to be preparing an on-campus workshop in which “queer” participants will separate by race to work past their sexual attraction to Caucasians.

We “find ourselves falling always for the white queers… wishing we could have more agency in the process, be more intentional about who we desire and how,” reads the official Facebook description of the event.

“We are invested in generating a politics of sexuality that compels us to interrogate beauty as privilege and constructed by systems of white supremacy, ableism, capitalism, and heteronormativity,” it continues…

Oh.

The workshop called “Protect me from what I want: a workshop on privilege, power, and desire” is sponsored by an organization called the Comprehensive Allyship Network, according to the Facebook event page.

And here we were thinking homosexuals had no control over what they desire. And that they could never be changed. Where did we ever get that idea?

After two artistic performances, participants will apparently be directed to separate between [People of Color] POCs and Caucasians before continuing the discussion.

“We will break into POC and White caucus groups for a part of the workshop to unpack some of our specific experiences of racialized desire,” reads the event description. “This will be an intentional, anti-racist, and feminist space.” …

What could be more anti-racist than trying to teach minorities to get over any attraction for whites?

Meanwhile, here is more on the ongoing war on ‘white privilege’ from the Daily Caller:

Students can earn class credit for attending ‘White Privilege Conference’

Robby Soave | March 19, 2013

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs invited students to attend a three-day “White Privilege Conference” and earn as many as four class credits.

The 14th annual White Privilege Conference will be held April 10-13, in Seattle, Washington, some 1,300 miles from UCCS. But if students manage to get there — and pay the steep $250 registration fee – they can earn up to four course credits for writing a brief three paragraph journal entry on the experience…

Maybe this fee and the distant location were selected to make sure that the students who attend are very privileged. By the way, will minorities be allowed to attend? Will they get a reduced rate?

Promotional videos from previous conferences paint a picture of an event designed to educate white people about the myriad ways they subconsciously benefit from their race. One video even lists some of them:

“I can go shopping fairly assured I won’t be followed or harassed.”

“I can swear, or dress in second hand clothes, or not answer letters without having people attribute these choices to the bad morals, the poverty, or the illiteracy of my race.”

“I can take a job with an affirmative action employer without coworkers suspecting my race got me in.”

A past attendee said the conference helps create a “dialogue,” even though white people can never truly understand the advantages they have over minorities.

“We can speak and talk to one another and have dialogue and let white folks know what its like for a person of color, and I don’t think that white folks are really going to truly understand what its like to be a person of color, but this conference gives you a glimpse,” said an attendee from a past conference, in a promotional video…

These life lessons will certainly be a boon to these college students, who otherwise probably never come across any ‘people of color’ in their normal day to day lives.

  1. At Brown University?

    Racist!

    Two hundred years from now, when the historians and archaeologists are sifting through the ruins of western civilization trying to piece together what happened -what are they going to think when they read unbelievable crap like this?

    That’s assuming, of course, that there still are things like historians and archaeologists in the future -as opposed to a global dark age that’ll make the last one seem pretty tame…

      Very true.

      But we can take some small comfort in the knowledge that, in the coming Dark Age, they will still keep a few of us around to use as queer bait.

    dear Abby,

    I lost track on the score on Homosexuality,

    Is it something hardwired when born,

    or is it a result of environment and /or personal lifestyle preference
    that have the ability to override genetic code?

    confused old guy.

    answer;

    “yes”.

  4. canary

    Does it say “No White Queers Allowed? White Queers should crash this Gay bash.

    “We are invested in generating a politics of sexuality that compels us to interrogate beauty as privilege and constructed by systems of white supremacy, ableism, capitalism, and heteronormativity,” it continues…

    So glad they cleared that up. I was confused for a minute. They forgot to mention blockilidge, plastithermidides, racialabilitism, undue worriation, normalheteroality, and hatewhiteyism.

  6. Is it OK now for heterosexuals to use the word queer? I thought that was rude.
    Or is it like the N word, If you are black (or Brown – Ha), it’s OK?

  7. white supremacy, ableism, capitalism, and heteronormativity ???

    What the hell does capitalism have to do with ANY of this? I guess these people are so left that they couldn’t finish a sentence without bashing capitalism at least once.

    At this time I’d like to speak to you about the unmitigated assault on the English language by an alarmingly increasing number of LEFT WING MORONS in our academic institutions. BUY A FRIGGIN’ DICTIONARY! That’s the book that has all the words and their meanings in it, in alphabetical order, that’s like in the same order as that song… you know Aye Bee Cee Dee Eee Eff Geeeeeee… and so on. Oh, and by the way, Elemenopee is not one letter.

  8. Liberals Demise

    I believe they have forgotten illegal and yes……. extraterrestrial queers.
    Let’s not piss off either of the alien queers.

  9. Helena

    I’ve got to admit I’m super attracted to intentional heteronormativity and ableism.

  10. MUHUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Liberals have taken racism, sexism, and homophobia, and turned it on themselves!

    Another wedge issue has been developed to divide themselves. To create hate, jealousy, racism, animosity, anti-this or that. Good! Where can I donate money for more of this?
    ________________________________________

    When the brainwashing from public school is not enough, the liberals take their hate on the road to corporations with these racist “diversity/white-guilt” conferences.

    I have done a few of these White Privilege Exercises before, and they are pure bulls***.

    “I can go shopping fairly assured I won’t be followed or harassed.”

    Um, yeah, this is a SELF-INFLICTED WOUND because the crime rate with blacks is disproportionate to their numbers. It’s not racism, it’s called not being NAIVE.
    The reward for good behavior is shopping without being followed around, how about minorities take a little more responsibility for their actions instead of blaming whites for their justified defense mechanisms?

    “I can swear, or dress in second hand clothes, or not answer letters without having people attribute these choices to the bad morals, the poverty, or the illiteracy of my race.”

    Again, it’s people putting 2 and 2 together. We see hip-hop culture and what behavior is considered “authentic.” We don’t have blinders on. We see the news, we see the decayed neighborhoods, we see DETROIT for lord’s sake!
    When you swear, wear special clothing and other social indicators, WE KNOW the signals you are sending, which is bad morals which lead to poverty and illiteracy of your race.
    —again it’s blaming other people for their justified defense mechanisms toward bad behaviors.

    “I can take a job with an affirmative action employer without coworkers suspecting my race got me in.”

    Then get rid of affirmative action policies and you won’t have anything to complain about! Hmph! It’s amazing that liberal enact A.A. policies, THEN COMPLAIN that it’s an unfair stigma against the people they unfairly gave the benefit to!
    BOO HOO, you got a job unfairly, but people think you to the job unfairly! DANG THEM!
    The obvious solution is to just ban it and let minorities achieve on their own. We have a black president now, time for this racism to retire.

    All these white guilty seminars are for FOOLS! Anyone who doesn’t stand up for themselves, fight back, open the discussion about minority behavior, is just being brainwashed like in Orwell’s 1984, “How many lights do you see?”
    If 1 person made trouble, and exercised their freedom of speech to oppose this anti-white racism IN FRONT OF all the participants, they could RUIN the whole thing for the implementers of it. Shout them down, scream, throw things, be dragged away by the police, get in the newspaper, place it on your blog, it’s worth it.
