[Ed. – This argument goes hand-in-hand with the notion that blacks can’t be racist.]
A Florida Gulf Coast University course titled “White Racism” has sparked an ongoing debate surrounding its intent, though the instructor continues to defend it in the face of criticism.
The course initially drew media attention in October, but critics and commentators have continued to spar over its legitimacy, with some describing it as hostile towards white people, and others — especially its instructor, Dr. Ted Thornhill — defending it as necessary.
In any event, the three-credit course is popular among students, having already reached its maximum capacity of 50 for the spring 2018 semester, with two students on the waitlist.
Notably, the minimum rate per credit hour at FGCU is $203, meaning students are paying at least $609 to take the course, and possibly as much as $2,514, according to the Office of the Bursar.
Participants in the course will “interrogate the concept of race,” while examining “the racist ideologies, laws, policies, and practices that have operated for hundreds of years to maintain white racial domination over those racialized as non-white.”
