A speaker event at Carlow University in Pennsylvania urged students to “crucify whiteness,” embrace “hopelessness,” and “ethically lie” to cover historical wrongs,” reports Campus Reform:
“Reject White Supremecy” was delivered virtually on Mar. 3 by Iliff School of Theology social ethics and Latinx studies professor Miguel De La Torre. It was sponsored by Carlow’s Atkins Center for Ethics.
In the speech, De La Torre criticized evangelicals who voted for President Donald Trump.
“When eight out of ten white evangelicals voted for a person who is completely against everything Christianity stands for, I don’t know what Christianity they are practicing,” he said.
Additionally, he argued that the word white doesn’t always reference skin color…“Those of us who are colored, some of us can also be white,” he said. “But the good news is there is salvation.”…Carlow University is a private Catholic institution in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, and was founded by the Sisters of Mercy.
Carlow University Public Relations and Communications Manager Sean McFarland defended the event to Campus Reform, stating that “the University welcomes respectful discourse and multiple perspectives, including being open to hosting speakers like Dr. De La Torre whose topic may engender thoughtful reflection and dialogue.”
