As Western Journalism has documented, the prevalence of so-called white privilege rhetoric within America’s colleges has caused many concerned parents to question the curriculum being offered in such institutions.

 

One recent example came out of the English department of Arizona State University. According to recent reports, faculty member Lee Bebout is offering a course called “Studies in American Literature/Culture: U.S. Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness.”

The last few words of that title has evoked criticism from more than a few people – both on and off campus.

 

Student James Malone told Campus Reform that such a course “shows the significant double standard of higher education institutions,” noting that the school “would never allow a class talking about the problem of blackness.”

 

Western Journalism reached out to ASU for comment and obtained a statement regarding the controversial course.

 

The university explained Bebout’s class “uses literature and rhetoric to look at how stories shape people’s understanding and experiences of race” while encouraging “students to examine how people talk about – or avoid talking about – race in the contemporary United States.”

Students can expect to “draw on history, literature, speeches and cultural changes – from scholarly texts to humor,” the statement continued, noting the class “is designed to empower students to confront the difficult and often thorny issues that surround us today and reach thoughtful conclusions rather than display gut reactions.”

 

ASU concluded by asserting that a university “is an academic environment where we discuss and debate a wide array of viewpoints”; however, the school’s effort to accommodate such an ostensibly anti-white view has led to charges that it is no longer a viable choice for prospective white students.
