Play The “WhiteNESS & Social Justice Interactive”!

vlcsnap-2016-06-19-15h55m35s237Ever wanted to play a rousing game of “racial justice dominoes”? Or take the “white privilege survey”? Well now you can! Thanks to this interactive social justice display at Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month”, presented by PCC staffer Jeff Laff, manager of something called “YES To College”. This display also features large banners of white shaming rhetoric, which include mocking work ethic, self reliance, desire to succeed, being punctual (?), mocking those who want to be polite, planning ahead, and other things that lead to one being successful life. Apparently these things are bad and should be avoided. Also featured is the diversity wheel, the “iceberg concept of culture”, and saying that “white privilege, specifically, is an institutional set of unearned benefits granted to white people”. You can also play the memory game, where you get to match the definitions of whitey’s evilness to buzz words like “worship of the written word”, “objectivity”, and “sense of urgency”. Apparently it is bad to have a sense of urgency, and better to just be lazy and late.

If you dare get offended by any of this, that is your “white fragility” showing, and your defensiveness is your weakness.
