White Privilege Conference

You may think this a joke, but it is not.  There is an annual conference in the US called the White Privilege Conference.  When Spartacus stumbled across this, he thought it was another Nigerian Email (Marketing) Conference.  But no.  Unlike the Nigerian Email Conference, the White Privilege Conference (WPC) is real.  And it has been running since 1999.  Yes.  1999!

For the past 17 years the WPC has examined challenging concepts of privilege and oppression and offers solution and team building strategies to work towards a more equitable world. WPC is a conference designed to examine issues of privilege beyond skin color. WPC is open to everyone and invites diverse perspectives to provide a comprehensive look at issues of privilege including: race, gender, sexuality, class, disability, etc.

Although the conference held in the US, its participants aren’t just from the US:

The conference is unique in its ability to bring together high school and college students, teachers, university faculty and higher education professionals, nonprofit staff, activists, social workers and counselors, healthcare workers, and members of the spiritual community and corporate arena.  Annually, more than 1,500 attend from more than 35 states, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, and Germany.

What’s the bet that Australia’s participants got there on coin of Australian tax payers.

But just for giggles, below is a photo from the WPC website showing a recent event.  You will notice that all the people in the photo are …. privileged whites.

It just warms the cockles of the heart.

    But how do they identify?

    Transitioning, Bemused. Intersectional.

  3. I have a solution for all those who believe in and espouse the theory of “white privilege”.

    In order to make the World all fairy and equalidee and unprivilegy we should send these self-proclaimed privileged whites to unprivileged non-white countries.

    It can’t all be one way after all. We can accelerate the unprivileging of whites this way. All those experts in white privilege will be able to work wonders in Ethiopia, Lesotho and the Congo. And lets send those nice ladies in the photo to Saudi Arabia and Boko Haram controlled regions of Nigeria, they will be a double asset as they can femisplain and whitesplain and will be able to reduce the gender pay gap and setup quotas to get more “people of colour” into leadership positions.

    The great thing is they have all self-identified for this program! For every new arrival we can deport one of these fantastic volunteers. Plus, as the West has already imported millions of Somalis, Eritreans, Afghans and other assorted unprivilegies, there are millions of vacant spots to be backfilled. We could start the deportations tomorrow! Just think, it will also solve the problem of our overcrowded cities and housing.

    Now that would surely warm the cockles of their hearts when this program is unveiled, just imagine the look on their faces. I imagine they would be so overjoyed they would be literally in tears as they board the plane to their final destination.

    So who is onboard with this plan?

    How about they identify as black, and move to South Central or Watts. The live footage would be a hoot.

    Seriously, why don’t these self-loathing cretins just top themselves?

  5. mrwashout

    Mr Rusty – I like the way you think.

    Now, how can we make this happen?

    Hey Sparti

    They are promoting the 20th conf in 2019 with a photo from the 19th conf in 2018, effectively saying “look comrades, you too can be part of this 5 star service boondoggle on the taxpayers dime if you apply for grants in your jurisdiction”.

    Peter Greagg, it looks like a photo from an earlier conference, used to promote the next one.

  9. Pete of Perth

    Looks like a friends of the abc get together.

  10. dopey

    19 conferences and there is still white privilege. More drastic action is needed.

    John Hamm has actually shot black people when he worked campus security in the 1980s.

    He’s doing his suicide live on air now.

    What’s the big deal about this?
    My friends and I hold white privilege conferences every few weeks in the members’ lounge of our club.

  13. Nicholas (Unlicensed Joker) Gray

    Tim, White Privilege is supposed to have been reduced by now! So your meetings are useless.
    Now my plan to hold seminars on innate female privilege should work- I’ll point out that women are still living longer than men, an issue that feminists refuse to address. My solution is to hand out suicide pills to women when they reach men’s average age, so they can practice equality, and not just talk about it.

    Now that’s real philanthropy.

    Clearly, women are discriminated against by having to fund their retirements for longer than men have to. With your help they can now stick it to the patriarchy by topping themselves!

  15. Roberto

    All the black people are doing real jobs in the kitchen.

  16. Nicholas (Unlicensed Joker) Gray

    Thanks, Tim…. You’ve got a weird mind. But who wants to be boringly normal?
    Q. How many blondes in bikinis would it take to change a light bulb?
    A None have done it yet, but I love watching them try!

    Like any many, I love warm cockles.

  18. JohnJJJ

    Why do they all have the same expression as labradoodles?
    Speaker list: Rosetta is a diversity speaker and trainer, Mira Krishnan is a social entrepreneur and feminist activist
    and the star of the show is…….
    Eli speaks, teaches, and facilitates about disability, queer and trans identities, and social justice.
    Whoooohooo! I wonder what’s for the conference dinner ?

  19. Jannie

    Don’t be so cynical, maybe they are Indigenous Australians, survivors of the Stolen Generations.

  20. Entropy

    That table has at least thee telephone sanitizers sitting there. Candidates for the B Ark indeed!

    Ease up, the bloke in my old office a few years ago who did that was a good dude.

    Five Doctors Wives* and two cucks?
    Sounds about right.

    *Virtue signallers are usually the most privileged members of society.

  23. Rob MW

    Their privilege and grievance has the same look and texture as the ar-la-carte agitating right in front of them. Poor starving pricks and prickets.

    No wonder herbivores starve in a drought, these arseholes ate all their food !!

  24. BorisG

    are you sure it is government funded?

  25. Entropy

    It would be a pretty safe bet the Australian attendees would have been Boris. But in America it is usually some philanthropic trust set up by some hard working entrepreneur in the past that inevitably gets corrupted from within and then starts funding stuff like this. Just another form of OPM sprayed about.

    If attending a conference like this I think it would be best to double lock your hotel room door at night.

  27. Clam Chowdah

    These events are like papal indulgences for white progressives.

    Oure lige lordes seel on my patente,
    That shewe I first, my body to warente,
    That no man be so boold, ne preest ne clerk,
    340 Me to destourbe of Cristes hooly werk.
    And after that thanne telle I forth my tales;
    Bulles of popes and of cardynales,
    Of patriarkes and bishopes I shewe,
    And in Latyn I speke a wordes fewe,
    To saffron with my predicacioun,
    And for to stire hem to devocioun.

    Not a fan of piggy back rides in the nude?

    Lol. Well spotted!

  30. Helen

    I bet they wish they had a bit of black in them.

    Welcome to the race war. Your skin is your uniform. You may want to sit on the sidelines but non whites are always going to regard you as the enemy no matter how much you debase yourself
