Brown University Helping Students Fight Gay Feelings Toward White People



White Privilege



By Daniel Greenfield

At some point I expect political correctness to reach a point where it just implodes and everyone has been counting on it to do their thinking for them will begin running around screaming and biting everyone else on their ankles.

But meanwhile finally a major academic institution is helping students fight gay feelings… so long as it’s gay feelings toward white people.


A group of Brown University students appear to be preparing an on-campus workshop in which “queer” participants will separate by race to work past their sexual attraction to Caucasians.

We “find ourselves falling always for the white queers… wishing we could have more agency in the process, be more intentional about who we desire and how,” reads the official Facebook description of the event.

The workshop called “Protect me from what I want: a workshop on privilege, power, and desire” is sponsored by an organization called the Comprehensive Allyship Network, according to the Facebook event page.

But… but I thought they were born this way. They can’t help it. Unless it involves white privilege desire power.


“Protect me from what I want” sounds like it was borrowed from ex-gay recovery groups as the gay rights movement comes full circle.

After two artistic performances, participants will apparently be directed to separate between [People of Color] POCs and Caucasians before continuing the discussion.

“We will break into POC and White caucus groups for a part of the workshop to unpack some of our specific experiences of racialized desire,” reads the event description. “This will be an intentional, anti-racist, and feminist space.” …

It’s apparently one of those racist anti-racist spaces where people are segregated by color and one race is denigrated.

*****

But, whatever you do, don’t call them racist or what they are doing “segregation” or as “whatever happened to that whole post-racial world we were going to have if we followed everything that you said, especially the part about electing a black man as President of the United States?”
