Connecticut University Gives $20k to Far-Left Robin DiAngelo for “Anti-Racism” Training

( You know Robin DiAngelo. She’s the white woman who admitted to the world that she’s a racist and wrote the book “White Fragility” to absolve herself of sin. It quickly became a best-seller and resulted in several mainstream TV interviews in which she argued that all white people are inherently racist.

Yes, it’s a crazy theory, but it’s exactly the kind of things universities and their most vocal left-wing students love. That’s why the University of Connecticut is paying DiAngelo some $20,000 to have her come in and train administrators in “anti-racism.”

School administrators, who are almost certainly not exhibiting racism in their job already (or they’d have been fired!), will be subject to far-left preaching from DiAngelo and potentially faced with losing their jobs if they do not accept the training.

The College Fix obtained a copy of DiAngelo’s contract with the university and reported how she will be performing a three-and-a-half-hour workshop to administrators in the university. Not only will she be paid $20,000 to spew far-left propaganda at the administrators, she’s even been granted $2,000 in travel expenses.

Sounds like she can enjoy a stay at a luxury hotel and potentially even a first-class domestic flight for that price!

DiAngelo has a PhD in Multicultural Education from the University Of Washington, where she is also an Affiliate Associate Professor of Education.

Imagine being one of her students?

She also boasts of having two honorary doctorates that honor her work researching and working in “Whiteness Studies” and “Critical Discourse Analysis.”

If you needed any evidence that DiAngelo is an ideologue and not a real educator, that should probably do the job. Whiteness Studies, really? That’s on par with Harry Potter Studies.

Thomas Katsouleas, the President of the University of Connecticut, released a statement proudly announcing DiAngelo’s lecture. In the statement, he also announced new “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.”

Not the use of the word equity, and not equality.

“One example of this commitment is a professional development retreat scheduled for the fall for 44 top leaders of the university with Robin DiAngelo, the antiracism scholar whose White Fragility has become a much-discussed book during this moment,” he wrote. “This retreat will help University leadership come to grips with the critical questions of racism and inclusion, and to bring those insights back to our campuses.”

If you or a loved one is considering going to university here, now might be the time to reconsider…
