    The University of Vermont held a three-day retreat over the weekend specifically for white students so that they could learn how to recognize their own white privilege and how that privilege impacts the community.

    “Examining White Privilege: A Retreat for Undergraduate Students Who Self-Identify as White” was a free retreat for students that took place Nov. 13-15 at the Common Ground Family Center in Starksboro, Campus Reform reported.

    “Students will have the opportunity to conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lens,” as well as “recognize and understand white privilege from an individual experience,” the event page states. Students would also be given tools to understand the “impact of white privilege on the UVM community and beyond."

    White privilege is when all other races stick together to attack your race and all you can do is say "sorry my ancestors had slaves and I'm a racist"

    I remember on THSS years ago that Alec Baldwin told Kim Bassinger he was a vegetarian, just because he wanted a date with her.

    I tried that when Garth Brooks was huge in the 90's. Couldn't pull it off, music was so bad I lost respect for the girl I was chasing.

    This whole "white privilege" thing is ridiculous. If you live in America, you're privileged compared to many other places in the world. Those students are working as hard as anyone else is to make the grade, job hunting, and many will have loans to pay off after graduation.
