"Self-help" classes like this always look a little cheesy, and it's hard not to think this is totally ridiculous. An academic course about race and self-identification, racial bias, history of race as a social construction, institutionalization of racism, etc. can be extremely rigorous, and important. Many university offerings on these topics are rooted in philosophy, sociology, or even anthropology, and can be intellectually very sophisticated.

But this class, OTOH, run through an independent website by people with questionable credentials, reads like an "I'm afraid of talking to black people" class for white people who have never known or spent time around a black person their entire lives. It's sad, really. They'd be much better off doing some community service in a largely black school or neighborhood.

It amazes me how much like cult programming this is. There is no escape. Any protestations that your "whiteness" isn't toxic will be met with entreaties that you just haven't yet realized how toxic you are as a white person. The words "unconscious" and "subconscious" are repeatedly used to suggest that you aren't even aware that you're racist. You have been "conditioned" to accept your inherent racist attitudes. Let us help you discover your inner racist!

Once you are finally broken down and are finally forced to admit that yes, you are a toxic white person, then you will be rebuilt according to the course model.

The website linked above reads like a cult manifesto. It might as well be Scientology teaching you how to become clear. (And it only costs $300.00!)

Yes, exactly like cult programming.

And dangerous.


I assume that your next 100+ posts will be about all of the christian groups who will help you pray away various sins.

I know liberals are scary to you. They think differently than you! Oh no!

But still, maybe don't worry SO much about the way a tiny tiny fraction of them think, just like I try not to worry about the fuckwitted way religious conservatives think.

Embrace your whiteness instead of being ashamed of it. Ignore the folks who are telling you that you owe them anything due to the accident of your birth to europeans.
