This is scary, and could explain a lot about the growing number of college snowflakes.

Many Americans probably don’t know there is a White Privilege Conference and that teachers are enjoying its 17th year.

This year’s blame whitey fest started on Thursday and thousands of teachers are attending, according to EAG News.

One of the conference’s themes is “personal action” which reads, in part, ““Consciously make an effort to change language and grading techniques (as a teacher).”

Eddie Moore Jr., the founder and president of the event organizer “The Privilege Institute,” wrote the goal of the conference ” is to build a community committed to dismantling white privilege, white supremacy and oppression, every day, everywhere.”

The letter sent to conference participants was not only anti-white, but anti-American.

“Throughout the history of the United States, ‘liberty’ and ‘justice’ have been espoused values, which have only ever applied to a very small minority of people,” the letter read.

“The Constitution supported the enslavement of Africans; the U.S. government orchestrated the decimation of Native American nations; until 1952 Congress prohibited Asians and Latinos from naturalizing as U.S. citizens because they were not White; the Bill of Rights did not apply to persons who were not White, male and Christian.”

Around 2,500 school administrators teachers and personnel will attend the Philadelphia conference, the largest to date, according to Metro.

Founded in 1999 at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa with just 175 attendees, this year the WPC is in its biggest city ever, and is expecting about 2,500 attendees, 250 presenters and performers, and 175 workshops at the conference, which is being held at the Marriott Downtown.

The WPC is known for handing out white wristbands for white people to wear to remind them of their “white privilege,” as well as “Got Privilege” T-Shirts.

“Any kind of mnemonic device that will help white people think about and remember something that we’re not supposed to remember and think about is helpful,” Hackman said.

Dena Samuels, board president of The Privilege Institute overseeing the conference said it’s not about hate.

“It is not about beating up on white folks or males or heterosexuals,” she said “but rather to consider how these identities are socially constructed and serve to include and benefit and lift up some people at the expense of others.”

Yeah it sounds like a real lovefest.

Pictures from the event have been shared on social media.
