Because someone has to stop these Whites!
The state of Oregon recently spent more than $80,000 in taxpayer money on a two-day diversity conference focusing on “white privilege” and “microaggressions.”
The event, entitled “Building a Stronger Oregon through Diversity & Inclusion” occurred Sept. 29 and 30 (a Tuesday and a Wednesday during the work week) in Salem, Ore.
Government employees from 21 different agencies attended lectures and workshops tackling topics such as “white male privilege,” “microaggressions” and “biases and stereotypes related to food.” Another session, entitled “Gay is for White People” considered homosexuality as a racial issue.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown gave the opening address at the conference. In her speech, Brown confessed to the sea of white people in attendance that she benefits from the “privilege of white skin” “every single day.”
The Democrat also claimed that she knows “what it feels like to be treated differently and paid less — substantially less — than a man” even when she “knew” she was “doing a better job.”
Brown, the nation’s first openly bisexual governor, has made government-planned “inclusion” a focus of her administration. In April, she hired a new “equity policy coordinator” specifically to “strengthen efforts to address equity and inclusion of underrepresented groups in the state’s workforce.”
Information obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by The Daily Caller shows that the state of Oregon spent over $52,000 renting the event venue and on other associated event costs. The venue was the Salem Convention Center, which boasts “stunning space, impeccable service, superb cuisine” and “a robust multi-mode fiber network.”
Oregon taxpayers also footed the bill for 16 speakers. The speakers received between $500 and $5,000 each for their presentations at the conference. The total cost for the speakers exceeded $28,000.
