Via Critical Mass, here’s a short follow-up film on the indoctrination efforts of Delaware University’s ResLife programme - described by its proponents as a “treatment” - in which students were told, The term [racist] applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality.” The film, embedded here in two parts, is aimed primarily at trustees and alumni, but it deserves wider attention.

Part 1: Wait for the marshmallow “oppression” story around 2:05.

Part 2 : “The immediate effects were to intimidate and humiliate students. The long-term effect is to teach conformity.”

As Erin at Critical Mass points out, the “treatment” prescribed at Delaware wasn’t some bizarre anomaly or distortion, but was hailed as an award-winning exemplar of “social justice education.”
