University to Host the Privilege Institute’s Annual “White Privilege Symposium”

This year’s White Privilege Symposium will be held at Drake University and will challenge “white fragility”.

The White Privilege Symposium is a project of The Privilege Institute, a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. The Privilege Institute is best known for its White Privilege Conference which explores “challenging concepts of privilege and oppression.” Despite the similarity in names, Dr. Moore’s Privilege Institute and Milo Yiannopoulos’s Privilege Grant are not affiliated

This year’s WPS is titled Equity and Education: Challenging White Fragility.

The confirmed list of speakers includes Dr. Moore himself and Jennifer Harvey. Ms. Harvey is the author of Raising White Children and Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation. In the latter, she suggests that it is the responsibility of White Christians to provide reparations to African-Americans. In her book, she argues reconciliation is not enough as it focuses on integrating black people into white spaces instead of helping offset what damage hundreds of years of oppression has done.

In an interview, Dr. Eddie. Moore, Jr, was asked how his work with the Privilege Institute helps people of color.

“That [sic] White supremacy, White privilege, racism and other forms of oppression are designed for your destruction — designed to kill you. So what I want this conference to help people of color to understand is how that system works. How it can create little bitty things that add up, that cause hypertension…that cause you to maybe eat unhealthy or not exercise,” he said.

“It’s designed for people of color to understand the philosophical design [and] belief in White supremacy. This conference is an opportunity for people of color to learn about that system and to be better prepared to find success — but most importantly, to live healthy.”

In the past, Dr. Moore has talked about how the fact that his ancestors were slaves pushed him towards using hard drugs.

The White Privilege Symposium will be held in October and is open to the public for a fee.

    This is Racist as all get! This is about putting down Whites! This is just disgusting Racism.

    NO! No one is paying reparations for something they never had anything to do with!

    Get rid of Affirmative Action too, you want to be equal then let’s do it with EVERYTHING!

    White people, also Stop hating on yourself and stand up for yourself. Who cares what these insecure nuts think. Stop walking on eggshells and kissing booty…..you look silly and Pathetic…and they all laugh and use YOU!

    This class is made to divide us More!

    I want this Professor to prove my ancestors had slaves. Since I know some of mine came from Germany is 1736 for religious freedom and were farmers in New York ‘ s Finger Lakes, I doubt they had any slaves. I’m thankful my ancestors left Germany when they did. How many black Americans wish they were goat farmers in Africa?

    The correct term is ‘liberal privilege’ or ‘leftist privilege’. They are the only people I see with privilege. They never go to jail, never have to apologize, never recuse themselves, and pay for everything with other people’s money.

    “We want to tell you how white people are responsible for all the problems in your community. That way, you’ll never address the real problems.”
