(THE COLLGE FIX) -- Another college discussion on the concept of “whiteness” took place late last month, this time at the University of Notre Dame.
Part of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies’ “Walk the Walk Week,” the event — titled “Confronting Whiteness at Notre Dame: Power, Identity, and Exclusion” — labeled whiteness a “social and political construct that harms the university community.”
According to The Irish Rover, discussion moderator David Anderson Hooker — who holds the ridiculous title of “professor of Practice of Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding” — began by stating “The illusion of whiteness as related to racial categorization disguises what is actually most important… namely, white is a description of both a political condition and a mechanism for the distribution of power. While it has real relation to the concept of racism, the two don’t squarely overlap.”
