The University of Minnesota hosted a webinar series aimed at helping white participants “recover” and learn about their “ties to white supremacy.” UMN’s School of Social Work recently offered a virtual lecture using a “12 step” program like that used by Alcoholics Anonymous in order to help white people “recover and reclaim our full humanity.” The lecture titled, “Recovery from White Conditioning,” is taught by school alumnus and therapist Cristina Combs and was hosted by the school’s Center for Practice Transformation. The program is a creation by Combs, a white woman who spent “years of struggling to

I've heard of self hating Jews and dont understand it. Now we are hearing about self hating whites and I still dont understand it. It would be like a model feeling guilty for not being ugly, or a genius down in the dumps for not being stupid. Where are those aliens? I'm ready to leave this nut house.

First thing I do every morning when I rise - run to the mirror to gaze upon my lily-hued skin...YEP!! Still White! I cry with glee - what a Supremely Privileged day I shall have today! And then I go about my happy whiteass life and never give a thought about 'recovering or reclaiming' any shred, much less my full - humanity. That's what we White people just do.

I just want the world to know how PROUD I am of my WHITE HERITAGE. What I have achieved in my life I achieved with hard work, drive, and capitalizing on opportunities. Did luck play a part? Yes, both good luck and bad luck mixed in with my efforts. I salute all of my friends, black and white, and all of the help and encouragement I received along the way. If you choose to make an issue of my race, go ahead, but I won't join you. When you look at others and race is all you see, you, black or white, are a RACIST.

This has been going on for a long time in Minnesota. When I was at Edina High School in a Minneapolis suburb I distinctly remember this shaming beginning to happen. My junior year (1969-70), American History was dropped from the curriculum and replaced with “Current Events.” We were taught by a fleet of young U. of M. grads. Frequently, black, Native American and women activists were brought in the classroom to browbeat us about our privilege. It was dull and insulting Although Edina, was the “rich kid school” of the Minneapolis area and we were called “cake eaters” we didn’t all come from wealthy families. Many were first generation off-the-farm whose fathers benefitted from the GI Bill. We were a highly competitive school in sports and academics and I think we were targeted for these reasons although I don’t know if other schools experienced the same things at the same time. Judging from my old Edina friends today the indoctrination made its mark. I moved away my senior year to Ohio because of my father’s job transfer but they’re all socialists, even if they won’t admit it by that name.

This is just being taught at UMN? Think again. It's being taught at the service academies, along with a tacit critical race theory disguised as Diversity Teams. Oh yeah. Concentrated, encouraged tattle tailing then expulsion if you're a Midshipman suspected of being a white supremacist like one senior from the class of 2020 who simply retweeted a picture his LA Police officer parents sent him of a BLM riot in the sites of an LAPD helicopter. He made the mistake of supporting the cops, his parents who are both cops, and not the innocent, peaceful "protestors" who were burning, looting and terrorizing innocent people in Los Angeles. UMN is merely teaching the nonsense. The US Naval Academy is APPLYING the nonsense.

We have just started to wake up to what has been going on in colleges across the country for decades. Impressionable young people are lashed with guilt if they are white, with rage if they are black. All are taught that America is imperialist, and America's past is a shameful record of racism, sexism and injustice on the national and international level. Moreover, the "elite" schools have practiced systematic racism in their admissions and scholarship policies, favouring blacks and latinos and pushing down whites and Asians. Leftists are miserable people, and their mission is to inflict misery on others. Are you proud of your country? Be ashamed! Be ashamed of your maleness! Be ashamed of your whiteness! Be ashamed of your prosperity! Be ashamed of your achievements! Education has become indoctrination throughout the humanities, and, increasingly, even in the sciences. When you see blacks attacking innocent whites-- injuring and even killing the elderly and children-- and young rioters-- black, brown, white-- burning and looting cities, you are seeing the fruits of decades of leftists' propaganda in academia.

Another one of these White Guilt hustlers is Tara Duke of Cornerstone Diversity. Tara has been recruited by MENSA to help them with their diversity problem. Yes, even they are White Supremacists! MENSA has one criteria for membership, an IQ score in the top 2% of the population. I'm sure it will be interesting if not infuriating to members when the standards are "adjusted" for membership in this heretofore exclusive group. Apparently the woke management are not smart enough to see exactly what is going to happen to their membership numbers next year.

So...... I'm to indulge in daily self reflection to castigate myself for being white??? Uuuuuhhhhh NO!!!! I'm white because that's the way the Lord made me; since He has specific plans for everyone, I assume he had a reason for making me white. That being the case I have no duty to reflect about how really awful I am because of my ethnicity. I spend "self reflection time" studying Scripture and praying for our country and President. I think that's a much more productive use of my time.

25, I'm a 1979 Navy grad, last all male class. 1980 and above are offended by our toxic masculinity class motto; Omnes Viri; Latin for All Male. Some claim we've destroyed their lives with a stupid motto that just states a historic fact. 1981 Navy grad, Wendy Lawrence was so destroyed by our motto, she only made three star, became an astronaut and was the first woman grad in space. I feel horrible over that kind of trauma visited on so many female grads. Wendy could be on Mars now were it not for '79's hateful motto.

"White" people are not the problem. The race problem in America is almost entirely caused by a "black" culture that glorifies ignorance, promiscuity, illegitimacy, violence, and lack of impulse control. Black culture is responsible for black failure. And “the talk" that black parents have with their children just passes down a ready made external excuse for their failures. No other ethnic or racial group hobbles its children like that. If the black "community" really wants to know why its members do not succeed, its first step must be to look inside itself.

Just another race baiting hustle that works on weak minded people. When you can't solve a problem on your own, always blame your failure on the nearest majority group --- either race, creed or ethnicity. If you want to see real racism and hatred? Just trying being a white & a Christian in large parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. You really might get yourself killed and not just discriminated against!

Donald Trump's reelection campaign accused Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer of "encouraging assassination attempts" targeting the president on Sunday afternoon, amid escalating conflict between the two political leaders. Trump's campaign, which uses the handle "Trump War Room" on Twitter, based its allegations against Whitmer on a token with the numbers "8645" clearly visible. The token appeared behind her during an interview with NBC News host Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday morning. "Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an '86 45' sign during her TV appearance. 86 can be shorthand for killing someone," the Trump campaign tweeted, alongside a screenshot

Americans really are drinking more during the COVID-19 pandemic. New research suggests that alcohol consumption in the United States rose 14% during pandemic shutdowns. The most dramatic increase was in heavy drinking episodes in women, defined as four or more drinks within two hours. Women reported a 41% increase in episodes of heavy drinking in the spring of 2020 compared with their drinking level in the spring of 2019.

As violence and unrest surge in major cities across the U.S., liberal mayors are taking a combative stance toward the Trump administration and offers of federal help -- engaging in sometimes-feisty social media feuds with officials. And the vitriol is flowing in both directions. “Hey Karen. Watch your mouth,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted Thursday in response to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who described her as the “derelict mayor” of the city because of the surge in violence there. That tweet came the same evening as three people, including a 5-month-old baby boy, were shot in Chicago.

The rule change follows the first debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden that devolved into a frequently interrupted shouting match.

Cancer-stricken talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh provided listeners a somber update on his condition Monday after recent scans showed “some progression of cancer,” which he said is “not dramatic” but still a step in the wrong direction. Limbaugh announced in February that he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer and had missed several shows this month to undergo treatment. “From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, OK, that’s it, life’s over, you just don’t know when,” Limbaugh said. “So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life

A well-known Republican pollster on Tuesday characterized President Trump’s campaign as "mis-calibrated" and the "worst" he’s ever seen, during a briefing with British strategic advising company Global Counsel. “I’ve never seen a campaign more mis-calibrated than the Trump campaign. Frankly, his staff ought to be brought up on charges of political malpractice,” Frank Luntz said, The Hill reported. “It is the worst campaign I’ve ever seen and I’ve been watching them since 1980," he said, according to The Hill, adding that Trump’s advisers have “their heads up their a--es” if they think Hunter Biden allegations will win them the race. Luntz pointed to polls showing voters care less

Donald Trump's reelection campaign accused Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer of "encouraging assassination attempts" targeting the president on Sunday afternoon, amid escalating conflict between the two political leaders. Trump's campaign, which uses the handle "Trump War Room" on Twitter, based its allegations against Whitmer on a token with the numbers "8645" clearly visible. The token appeared behind her during an interview with NBC News host Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday morning. "Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an '86 45' sign during her TV appearance. 86 can be shorthand for killing someone," the Trump campaign tweeted, alongside a screenshot

Is the average American voter really thinking about all the ways to get back at voters who voted for President Trump? [Tweets] Well, it's what certain influential Democrats want, full blown show-trials and purges, same as the communists pioneered. Seems that equality and redistribution, don't really motivate them in the promises of socialism -- purges, show trials, Gulags and re-education camps are what get them going. And it makes sense. Socialism has failed everywhere it's ever been tried, every time, every place, every place it's ever been practiced, people are poorer,

Military flyovers are a time-honored tradition that are greeted with roars from throngs of patriotic fans at NFL stadiums all over the country. However, given that there are virtually no fans at any NFL stadiums during the pandemic, flyovers over near empty stadiums don’t make a ton of sense. That fact was grasped, discussed, and recorded–unknowingly–by Fox broadcasters Troy Aikman and Joe Buck on Sunday as the pair were caught panning the flyovers on a hot mic.(Snip) Buck: “That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work.” Aikman: “That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket

When on the stump, President Trump is known to talk about how the left in America seems to hate their country, and he often holds up Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., as an example. A Somali refugee who came to the United States as a young girl, Omar often criticizes the country that took her in as a racist nation, and has also displayed anti-Semitism, though the Muslim lawmaker has toned that down of late.(Video) One of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress and one of the radical left freshman Democrats known as “the squad,” Omar was given a platform on MSNBC Sunday evening to push back
