Imagine a publicly funded university paying an outside company to instruct their white employees in their “racial inferiority.” This is no hypothetical, but the current situation at one of America’s leading state universities.
At the University of Kentucky, no one is exempt from Critical Race Theory propaganda. The publicly funded institution recently paid $5,000 to the Center for Healing Racial Trauma to hold a workshop on “Cultivating an Anti-Racist Mindset for Academic Administrators,” which was attended by approximately 50 top faculty members and administrators at the university.
In keeping with the principles of Critical Race Theory, which seeks to condemn all whites as oppressors and label all blacks as victims, the curriculum at this workshop was blatantly racist. Attendees were told that they must alter their personal psychology to “replace white supremacy with the more accurate white inferiority complex.”
Participants in the workshop were required to fill out forms divulging their “chosen metric for anti-racism,” as well as the people they have chosen to be accountable to for following through on anti-racist practices, and the steps they have taken to enact anti-racist reforms.
Mary Davis, Dean of the UK J. David Rosenberg College of Law, responded to these queries by stating that she has begun to “force myself to accept white inferiority,” and that it has been “really hard” to accept.
Another attendee, Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric N. Monday, promised to “increase # of BIPOC M/F staff” that are paid $50,000 or more per year as his gesture to anti-racism. He noted that he had already “created a BIPOC recruitment fund of $250,000 per year for [the] next two years.”
Information about the event was initially kept confidential and was only made public after Young America’s Foundation (YAF) filed public records requests to obtain workshop materials and published their findings.
The University of Kentucky’s deplorably racist workshop and attempts to promote the doctrine of “white inferiority” are among the most egregious instances of CRT propaganda in academia.
