    A Missouri school is considering a segregated safe space for white students to talk about their racism and white privilege.

    Vincent Flewellen, chief diversity officer at Webster University in St. Louis, has plans for a new program based off a book, titled, “Witnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It." The local Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) began the "Witnessing Whiteness" program, which requires participants to be white. If brought to Webster University, the workshop would launch in late 2019.

    "I have not had an opportunity to fully explore the possibility. Should we move to bring the program onto campus, it would not be before August of this year," Flewellen said, according to Webster University's student newspaper, the Webster Journal

    So basically it's a program that's one step away from a reeducation camp.

    Webster University is in a trendy St Louis suburb, primarily liberal. It started out as an all-female Catholic university, headed by a nun. They eventually had a secular head of the university and became co-ed. My older son graduated from there.

    George "Bert" Walker is Bush 41's cousin and was closely connected with the university. Now he's coordinating with Civic Progress, a group of local self-appointed aristocrats, in a half baked scheme to force the reunion of the City of St Louis and St Louis County (with a ton of independent little towns/burbs). They're aiming for a state wide vote for the forced reunification.

    The trouble is the City of St Louis is broke, poorly managed with a sky high murder and car-jacking rate. The burb where SR and I live is mostly conservative, at least fiscally, with no debts. Our view might be considered selfish, and I guess "white",but we do not desire reunification with a broke, out-of-control City of St Louis. We don't want higher taxes, less efficient police protection and all that goes with it.

    This all ties in to the "whiteness" course at Webster. I guess anyone opposing their half baked plans should attend their classes to have our opinions changed. Wouldn't work with us.

    It was Saint Louis City that cut itself off Saint Louis County because at that time the city was booming and didn't want to share it success with a bunch of " PIG FARMERS ".
    In the late 50's and early 60's people began leaving Saint Louis in droves because the city was falling apart , taxes were going up and crime was raising. ( even today you can smell the city rotting as you drive up 55).

    I remember in the 90's, you saw Liberal idiots move up into Saint Louis because they thought it was the " HIP " thing to do; didn't take long before their houses and cars got broken into.

    What those jerkazoids are hoping for is for people who've never been to Saint Louis to vot ' yes ' on reunification. When that happens, I plan on seeing tons of people fleeing here to Jefferson County and Saint Charles County. One of the rasons I left Arnold was bunch of these Liberal assholes moved in started acting like they owned the place ( including wanting to change the name to RIVER HILLS ).

    When a STARBUCKS opens up in your town, you know its time to leave just as fast as you can; I did.

    As for this stupid " safe space " for white kids, its just a bunch SJWs trying to force feed their political crap into them so they will feel guilty for just being who they are and wanting those college kids to attack Working Class and poor Whites for decades to come. In other words they want to see group against group, the country rip itself apart , burn everything to the ground, piss on the ashes and then just sit on their asses waiting for a Socialist Utopia spring up all by itself. No thanks.
