college professor teaching classThis past weekend a university in Colorado hosted a symposium that included several workshops seeking to help white people "check their privilege."

The "White Privilege Symposium" at the University of Denver – presented by The Privilege Institute – focused on how white students can hold themselves accountable for their race. David Almasi, executive director of the National Center for Public Policy Research, contends the symposium was rooted in communism.

"It's Mao's Red Guard, it's the Moscow Trial, it's the Inquisition," he tells OneNewsNow. "It's these people thinking that they can go now that extra mile because they've already convinced us that our society is racist, that there's systemic racism that we can't ever get rid of."

One of the objectives of the symposium – according to the website for the Privilege Institute – is to develop a plan of action that "moves community away from 'Diversity and Inclusion' and towards comprehensively challenging white supremacy, white privilege, and other forms of oppression."

Almasi, David (Project 21)Almasi tells OneNewsNow that college campuses provide excellent places to cultivate radical, Marxist ideology. "It is the college campuses where this is festering because you had the PC students turn into PC professors [then] turning into the PC administrator," he describes.

The Privilege Institute website says it empowers and equips people to "work for equity and justice through self, organizational and social transformation." It has presented its White Privilege Symposium at several locales around the U.S. since 2014.
