Asst. Professor Wants to ‘Dismantle the System’ of ‘Whiteness Ideologies’?

Listen up parents! If you are looking to send your college “kid” to a school that can perhaps “deprogram” the “whiteness ideologies” out of him/her/they then look no further than Pennsylvania State University-Brandywine.

Angela Putman, an assistant professor in public speaking conducted research about the “Perpetuation of Whiteness Ideologies in U.S. College Student Discourse,” according to her study.

Students who took part in Putman’s analysis, participated in a “three-day seminar on systemic racism, intersectionality and white privilege.”

According to Putman’s bio, she:

“Received her Ph.D. in Intercultural Communication…Her dissertation is titled Interrupting the Silence: A Critical Discourse Analysis of a Pilot Seminar on Racism, Intersectionality, and White Privilege.

For this research project, she developed, designed, and implemented a 3-day seminar that was piloted on a group of college undergraduates.

The seminar examined how the students came to understand institutional racism, intersectionality, and white privilege, as well as equipped the students with practical skills for confronting and interrupting white privilege in their daily lives.”

Putman was not thrilled when students in her seminar supported “whiteness ideologies.”

What Putnam labels “whiteness ideologies” are statements made by the students such as “everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve success” and “if I can work hard, I can be successful.”

Oh no! Individuality and independent thought? Tell me people aren’t still doing that these days. (#sarcasm)

Putman explained that students:

 “are socialized to believe that we got to where we are…because of our own individual efforts.”

Putman also said:

“Whiteness ideologies may be reproduced through a general acceptance and unchallenging of norms, as well as through everyday discourse from a wide variety of racial positionalities.”

In other words, merit-based achievement, thinking that hard work pays off and being an independent thinker is a “white thing” (my words, not hers) and is somehow wrong.

Her words sound eerily similar to former President Obama who said “You didn’t build that!” He was wrong too.

Putman wrote in 2016 on her blog which requires a password for access (unless perhaps you are a paying parent of a white student who needs help?) that:

“One common misconception that many people, especially white people, have about racism is that it is about individuals and individual actions.”

She further advises whites:

“Talk to your children about race, social justice, and valuing difference. If the system is to be dismantled, we need the younger generation to buy-in now.”

Hopefully, right about now, you are asking yourself why the “system” needs to be dismantled.

Many on the Left would have you believe that being an individual, having independent thoughts, loving your neighbor and  judging others by the “content of their character rather than by the color of their skin” are concepts that have outlived their usefulness.

They want you to believe, especially if you are white, that somehow your own skin color is “bad” and that you are the cause of the world’s problems because of it.

Parents, stop sending your children to liberal universities that will rob them of their individuality, the gifts God gave them and their ability to accept others without believing they must first apologize for having a different skin color. This holds true for any student of any race!

The liberal Left’s agenda to destroy America by dividing the family, changing the definition of marriage, belittling Christian beliefs, promoting racism against whites and creating chaos among the races so that they can maintain control, is an agenda that must no longer be tolerated or believed.

It’s time you realized that the tuition you pay liberal academia is money which will be used to advance the Left’s agenda and will ultimately be used against you!
