This is just nutty, to me. A college professor apologized for being White to her students, though she hasn’t been accused of anything as far as I can tell. Crystal Duncan Lane, who teaches at Virginia Tech’s Department of Human Development and Family Science, told students that the color of a person’s skin can somehow make them inherently racist. Lane claimed that she has benefited from her ‘whiteness’.
Who asked Lane to apologize? No one. The college professor put this on her class syllabus and Campus Reform obtained a copy of that syllabus:
“I am a Caucasian cisgender female and first-generation college student from Appalachia who is of Scottish, British, and Norwegian heritage. I am married to a cisgender male, and we are middle class. While I did not ‘ask’ for the many privileges in my life: I have benefitted from them and will continue to benefit from them whether I like it or not.”
At the end of her statement, Duncan Lane apologizes to students for the “inexcusable horrors within our shared history.”
“This is injustice. I am and will continue to work on a daily basis to be antiracist and confront the innate racism within myself that is the reality and history of white people,” Duncan Lane writes in the syllabus. “I want to be better: Every day. I will transform: Every day. This work terrifies me: Every day. I invite my white students to join me on this journey. And to my students of color: I apologize for the inexcusable horrors within our shared history,” the instructor continued.”
Lane’s obsessive self-depreciation isn’t just a reflection on herself. The teacher basically told all of her White students that they’re racist just because of their skin color.
This is yet another example of the left’s psycho-wokeism and their need to create controversy and division where none existed otherwise.
Honestly, it’s all just nauseating pandering nonsense.
