A University administrator at Beloit College in Wisconsin gave a speech in which he described “whiteness” as a way of thinking and acting which is “fundamentally opposed” to Christianity and being a Christian, says a report in The Daily Caller.
Paul Dionne, Inclusive Success Coordinator for Beloit’s Office for Academic Diversity and Inclusiveness, called the speech “Working against Whiteness” as part of a lecture series called Love Made Public.
Dionne asked the student attendees to chant “imperialist, capitalist, white supremacist patriarchy,” which is a protest phrase originally authored by feminist and socialist Bell Hooks.
“Working against whiteness for me is interrogating myself and who I am and all of my privileges,” said the administrator in the speech. “(Being less white) is something I try to do every day.”
