On Campus of 30,000 Students, Less Than 10 Attend University’s White Privilege Workshops

The College Fix, September 20, 2019

Only nine students showed up to take part in the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s workshop series focused on teaching students about white privilege and related topics.

The total number of students in the audience for the first “White Consciousness Conversation,” held Sept. 10, was nine — but two were students there not as participants but as journalists mainly to observe. One was from The College Fix and another from the Niner Times campus newspaper.

According to the university’s website, the conversations aim to help students understand “the meaning and implications of whiteness” and how “engaging in anti-racist practice is crucial in creating racial equity.”

At the end of the workshop, at least two conservative students said the information presented seemed focused on blaming white people and whiteness for racism.
