University to students: 'All whites are racist'

A mandatory University of Delaware program requires residence hall students to acknowledge that "all whites are racist" and offers them "treatment" for any incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering the school, according to a civil rights group.

"Somehow, the University of Delaware seems terrifyingly unaware that a state-sponsored institution of higher education in the United States does not have the legal right to engage in a program of systematic thought reform. The First Amendment protects the right to freedom of conscience – the right to keep our innermost thoughts free from governmental intrusion. It also protects the right to be free from compelled speech," said a letter from Samantha Harris, director of legal and public advocacy for The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education to university President Patrick Harker.

The organization cited excerpts from the university's Office of Residence Life Diversity Education Training documents, including the statement:

"A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. 'The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination….'"

The education program also notes that "reverse racism" is "a term created and used by white people to deny their white privilege." And "a non-racist" is called "a non-term," because, the program explains, "The term was created by whites to deny responsibility for systemic racism, to maintain an aura of innocence in the face of racial oppression, and to shift the responsibility for that oppression from whites to people of color (called 'blaming the victim')."

And so, Orwell's 1984 continues to be fulfilled. . .

As another example, this reminds me of how anyone expressing skepticism about the scope, range, effect, impact, etc. of "man made" global warming, they are immediately labeled "climate change deniers".

[Rant]
The complete inability of the populace to deconstruct such pitifully fallacious forms of argument is shocking and we see these false argument techniques employed in mass media, the Congress and academia every day. I could lecture on this forever, but I'll list ten and try to plug in examples we've all heard recently:

1. Begging the question - attempting to use the conclusion as part of the evidence used to support the very same conclusion. Example: The kids in Jena should have been prosecuted because they are racists. Only racists hang nooses. Nooses are racist and only used as racist symbols. (The conclusion that racist kids should be prosecuted is listed, in different words, as a reason why they should be prosecuted.)

2. Circular reasoning - asserting the conclusion in the premises of an argument. Example: Immigration is good for this country. The reason is patently clear. Isn't it obvious that unrestricted workers will bestow on all sections of this country the benefits of that result when there is an unimpeded flow of labor between countries. (This is circular because "immigration", "unrestricted workers" and "unimpeded flow of labor" all have the same meaning.)

3. Invincible ignorance - when someone argues that new evidence need not be considered because he or she knows in advance that it is irrelevant to the truth or falsity of a belief. The arguer is convinced, prior to investigation, that the truth of the belief is established. Example: All evidence points to increased temperatures around the world in the last hundred years. Man-made emissions have increased around the world in the last hundred years. Therefore, it cannot be denied man has caused global warming. (I know fact number 1 and I know fact number 2 - all other facts are irrelevant to the conclusion.)

4. Non sequitur - "it does not follow." Example - George Bush is a racist because the evacuation in California was much better handled than the evacuation in New Orleans and everyone knows California is full of white, rich people. (The one has nothing to do with proving the other is true.)

5. False alternatives - any argument that presumes there are only two options and no other alternatives are plausible. Example: Your options are either to support amnesty for illegal immigrants or the cost of goods and services will skyrocket due to a shortage of labor because Americans will not do those jobs. (Effectively saying your only alternatives are to either allow amnesty or expect unaffordable goods and services with no other possibilities considered.)

6. Fallacy of moralism - attempting to justify a situation by pointing out that it represents the status quo. Example: We should legalize all illegal immigrants because they are already here. (This one is a classic. We should accept "X" because "X" is already the way it is and therefore correct.)

7. Ad ignorantiam (fallacy of negative proof) - assuming that the inability to demonstrate that a statement is true is therefore proof the opposite is true. Easy example: You have no proof God exists, therefore God does not exist. (Lack of evidence is not evidence to the contrary.)

8. Ad hominem (name calling) - attacking the speaker and not the position. Example: That George Bush is a damned liar so you can disregard anything his appointee, Ms. Ford, says about whether the Consumer Products Safety Commission should have more funding. (there are several forms of ad hominem, but you get the idea - attack the speaker instead of the argument).

9. Appeals to sympathy (also called appeal to the gallery) - using familiar expressions to be perceived as an insider belonging to the same group as the audience. Example: John Edwards is just a good old country boy who grew up poor and made a success of himself. He has worked hard every day of his life and he understands the working man's problems so you should vote for him. (Make the arguer appear as a friend or someone with whom you should agree on the basis of something other than the actual evidence.)

10. Appeals to authority - assuming that something is true simply because someone believes or asserts the same proposition. Example: Leading experts at the UN agree global warming is caused by man. They are reliable authorities on climate change. Global warming is undeniably a part of climate change. Therefore, man probably has caused global warming. (This is fallacious because the truth of the premise - UN scientists are experts - cannot guarantee the truth of the conclusion: man made global warming. Even the foremost authority on a subject can be in error, as Einstein was about quantum theory.)

[/Rant]

Must I go on? Think for yourselves, people!!

My thoughts: Every student, white, brown, green, yellow or purple, ought to withdraw their applications or drop out from that school demanding full refunds on any and all tuition and fees that they have paid to that "institution." The students at any other school that buys into that train of bullshit thought should follow suit. Bankrupt the schools preaching this drivel, before every other school in the nation follows suit and picks up that load of crap
