FGCU offers 'White Racism' class

A special topics class offered at Florida Gulf Coast University gave some students pause at its title.

"White Racism" is among classes available for the spring semester at the university.

While the title left some questioning the topic, others appreciated the approach. Either way, most students agreed the description for the course left them interested in signing up.

Course description
"In this course, we will interrogate the concept of race; examine the racist ideologies, laws, policies, and practices that have operated for hundreds of years to maintain white racial domination over those racialized as non-white; and discuss ways to challenge and disrupt white racism and dethrone white supremacy in the service of engendering an anti-racist society where whiteness is not tied to greater life chances."
