Do you get "angry" when colleagues berate you about "understanding your own white privilege?"
Well then, you might be a white supremacist, at least according to professor Reshmi Dutt-Ballerstadt, who teaches English at Linfield College in Oregon.
Dutt-Ballerstadt created a handy checklist "of qualities and attributes of those that overtly or covertly support or contribute to a culture of mundane and everyday white supremacy within our institutions."
Her list contains 15 "troubles" that she says she "identified to help others in academe recognize your (un)conscious contributions to white supremacy."
Dutt-Ballerstadt shared her list last Friday on Inside Higher Ed, several of which are highlighted below:
• You work in a position of power in a predominantly white institution, and while you claim to be working for social justice, you do nothing to change the white supremacist power structures within your departments, committees and institutional decision-making process.I can't help but notice a lot of these sound like her complaining about colleagues getting angry with her berating them for their "white supremacy."
• You think of yourself as an ally to your faculty of color colleagues, but cannot understand why your white students are so upset when professors of color teach and critique sites of white privilege.In short, if you're not working actively to disenfranchise "white people" in America, you're probably a "white supremacist."
This is the new standard for determining white supremacy.
Imaging being employed at a university and getting paid to whine about "mundane white supremacy" all day and thinking you're oppressed.
Here's another point which I'm sure she'll soon add to the list: if you think English teachers should actually teach English and not about "dismantling white power structures," you're probably a white supremacist.
