The cult of hyper-woke diversity non-think continues to spread among U.S. institutions, especially academic ones, with the University of Kentucky hosting an anti-racism workshop where university leaders were instructed to confess to “white inferiority” and explain how they will combat it within their departments.
Interestingly, the “Cultivating an Anti-Racist Mindset for Academic Administrators,” workshop was supplied by the Center for Healing Racial Trauma, a company started by a black UK assistant professor, Candice Hargons.
An invoice for the service obtained by the Young America’s Foundation revealed that the Center for Healing Racial Trauma charged $5,000 to host the class, as reported by DailyMail.com. It was attended by 50 people.
One can only imagine the pressure in an academic community to attend such an event. Fortunately, the Center for Healing Racial Trauma was apparently there to sell its services.
In a prompt obtained by College Fix, UK College of Law Dean Mary Davis pledged to “read more anti-racism literature,” and “force myself to accept white inferiority.”
In another, Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric Monday vowed to hire more people of color, with minimum yearly pay of $50,000.
University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto acknowledged the sessions in a campus-wide email in April, after the Young America’s Foundation made a Freedom of Information Act request about it.
“The important work at our university to create a more diverse and accepting community is vital. It must — and will — continue. We will not be deterred by these efforts,” Capilouto stated.
“These efforts” might have referred to the foundation, which has repeatedly attacked the workshop as an example of “how truly far-gone our universities are.”
