Do you assume your failures will not be attributed to your race or your gender? If so, you need to be fixed. Do you routinely forget to think about your ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation? If your answer is ‘yes,’ you definitely need to be fixed, and if you are not attending the four-day, White Privilege Conference (dubbed the ‘White Money Conference’) in Madison, Wisconsin, or if your eyebrows are raised at this moment, you are likely a problem ‘they’ need to be rid of, but at least $20,000 of taxpayer dollars will go fund this project. A bright spot in this story is Niger Innis, the son of Roy Innis, the founder of the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE), and a Republican candidate for a U.S. House seat Nevada’s 4th District. I’m not that familiar with Innis, his past or his politics, but he got this one right.
Invitees, 2500 expected to attend, include “thousands of teachers, university faculty, activists, government employees and students…”
The director of the Madison Area Technical College said the “convention will help local leaders create a community in which diversity is celebrated.”
According to the afore-mentioned director, the “potential impact” of the conference “will pay dividends over time.” Translation: ‘eventually we will have white people in the back of the bus where they belong’ — payback for their “Western evils.”
The founder of the 15-year-old conference believes whites are out to “kill” those who aren’t (white):
Eddie Moore Jr., who founded the conference 15 years ago, told Minnesota’s MSR Online in 2011 he hopes the event will help people understand that “white supremacy, white privilege, racism and other forms of oppression are designed for your destruction — designed to kill you.”
Niger Innis, the son of the founder of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), doesn’t have a problem with the agenda, but he does not believe taxpayers should foot the bill and most importantly, he ‘gets’ the real problem (so it seems to me he really does have a problem with the agenda):
Innis believes more focus should go toward breaking up the power that teachers’ unions have over school reform.
“You want to really do something? Educate a black kid,” said Innis, who is running as a Republican for a U.S. House seat in Nevada. “Give parents and students an opportunity to go to a private, parochial or a good public school.”
What governments shouldn’t do, Innis said, is continue to throw away tax dollars on an event built on the premise that the United States was started by white people for white people — especially when the conference isn’t struggling financially.
