Ohio State University Pays $12,000 For White Privilege Activist to Lecture

By Adam Andrzejewski for RealClearPolicy

Ohio State University spent $12,000 in March 2021 to show white people how racist they are.

The public university hired Robin DiAngelo, a University of Washington professor known for her focus on racism studies along with her books “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” and “Nice Racism: How Progressive White People Perpetuate Racial Harm.”

She spoke at Ohio State’s 22nd Annual President and Provost’s Diversity Lecture & Cultural Arts Series over Zoom for about an hour and didn’t take questions.

As an “anti-racist” consultant, DiAngelo is a prominent critical race theory expert. While the white privilege author’s website says for white people it’s “necessary for each of us to continually educate ourselves through books, films, discussions, conferences, community groups, workbooks and activism” she wouldn’t take any questions or have discussion in the Ohio State lecture.

“On a topic as charged as racism, opening the floor to the audience allows for very problematic dynamics (e.g. long-winded speeches, convoluted questions, debates),” her speaking contract claims.

She reportedly earns $728,000 annually from speaking fees, charging an average $14,000 per speech, the Daily Mail reported.

$12,000 an hour to hold a one-way lecture with no discussion on how white people are racist. Students paying Ohio State’s hefty tuition and taxpayers subsidizing the university should be outraged.
