A report from the David Horowitz Freedom Center has ranked the University of Minnesota as one of the most racist American universities.

The report ranked the University of Minnesota as the seventh-most racist university in the country for offering programs like “Recovery from White Conditioning.” This course involves a “12-step program” to inform students of their innate “white supremacy.”

“The official program description explains that ‘The Model of Recovery from White Conditioning, a derivative work based on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, is rooted in love and accountability. It involves white people working in our community to transform violent legacies of whiteness into healthier, white, anti-racist community,'” according to the report.

“This is the very definition of racism — telling a group of white people that solely because of the color of their skin, white supremacy ‘lives in us,’” the report adds.

The Freedom Center’s campaign identified nine other universities with racist curriculum. Each of the schools have propagated a crisis of racism on their campuses under the guise of “anti-racist” aspirations. The schools have been exposed for spending millions of dollars on diversity infrastructure and required anti-racism training.

Instead of encouraging ideas of equal rights promoted by the U.S. Constitution or civil rights movement, these universities promote the idea that a person is defined by the color of their skin.

Across these campuses and the University of Minnesota, students of color are taught they are all victims of white oppression.

“Diversity Training programs are not about racial sensitivity,” explained David Horowitz, leader of the campaign. “They are about the demonization of white people and the constitutional order of individual freedom, equality and accountability the American Founders created. These campuses are openly promoting racism in the name of ‘social justice.’”

The group also conducted a “stealth newspapers” campaign at the University of Minnesota, distributing 2,000 copies of its report across campus.
