UW Madison is offering a course on "the problem of whiteness" - Yes that is the actual name of the course.

Luckily lawmakers have noticed and are threatening the college's funding if they go through with the class:

Of course though, in natural sjw fashion, they're doubling down:
In a statement Tuesday, UW-Madison responded to the growing controversy by defending the course, stating it is important for deeper understanding of race issues and not intended to isolate a particular ethnic group.

The course’s name refers to the challenge of understanding white identity and non-white identity across the globe, according to the statement. University officials emphasized that the course is voluntary.

“The course is a challenge and response to racism of all kinds,” university officials said. “There is a long academic tradition at UW-Madison and in higher education for allowing individual faculty freedom to design courses reflecting topics that they and their department consider important.”

In his press release, Murphy attached tweets from Sajnani, including one where Sajnani said he was watching CNN and enjoying listening to the song “Officer Down.” Murphy described the tweets as vile and suggested Sajnani approved of the July shootings of police in Dallas.
I love how the campus is saying this isn't a class targeting whites when everything down to the description and the professor's ideology is blatantly saying it is a class targeting white people as inherently and genetically racist.

For added fun, here's the professor's twitter:

Reading his tweets, I wonder how he even got a job at a college, I wonder how he graduated college himself!?

You know, they would probably get away with claiming the course isn't racist if it was called the problem with whiteness. The problem with whiteness could mean that whiteness is a problem, but it could also mean that whiteness has problems or causes problems. But the problem of whiteness doesn't have that ambiguity, it can only mean that whiteness is the problem. Which I guess it is if you are a sad cuck liberal arts professor who desperately wishes he was born black.
