‘Not being racist’ is not enough at Oxford | Abroad


The class was taught at St Hugh’s College, part of the university where Theresa May, Amal Clooney and imprisoned Myanmar Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi once were also taught.

The class was not compulsory but highly recommended. According to the Daily Mail, the revelations “come at a time when anti-racism training courses are under heavy fire.”

Anti-racist

One of the presentations reads’ Are you a racist? No is simply not a good enough answer ‘.

Then it is stated that we ‘must stop thinking that inequality in this world is not our fault’, including spelling error (stop thinking injustice isn’t to an extent are fault ‘).

Stop being one non-racist. Become an anti-racist ”, it sounds, requiring students to give a ‘pledge to action’. “What is your individual contribution / commitment / promise to tackle inequality and racism?”

Evaluation

Last year, research showed that such lessons can be counterproductive. Many British government agencies would have banned such racism training. They are still given in several places at Oxford University. “The unsteady emphasis on how racist this institution is is the worst,” one student fumed in British media. “A colossal waste of time and money. I have not seen any racism at all. ” A spokesperson says the training courses are being evaluated.
