In Duluth, Minnesota a new campaign against white privilege is unfolding. Yes, you read that correctly. Its called the Unfair Campaign and here is their mission:
To raise awareness about white privilege in our community, provide resources for understanding and action, and facilitate dialogue and partnership that result in fundamental, systemic change towards racial justice.
Racial justice? What exactly is racial justice?
This campaign is called the Un-Fair campaign because we feel it is unfair that some of the members of our community have privileges that are unearned just because of the color of their skin and others face barriers, discrimination and disadvantages because of the color of their skin. That’s unfair. We believe that an important part of creating a community that is equitable for all of us means looking at how those of us who are over advantaged can begin to change ourselves and the institutions and systems in our community that perpetuate white privilege.
So the answer is to engage in racism and stereotyping against white people? Check this video out:
“We’re privileged, and that’s unfair.” Wow. Talk about stereotyping a race! Isn’t that what they are asking white people not to do? Local radio hosts of The Late Debate, Jack Tomczak and Benjamin Kruse, put together a response video with messages from minority Minnesotans, denouncing the concept behind the Unfair Campaign:
The University of Minnesota – Duluth continues to back this campaign, despite admitting that it is divisive.
Officials at the University of Minnesota conceded over the weekend that the racially charged “Un-Fair Campaign” is “divisive” and had “alienated some people,” but said they would continue to provide sponsorship.
