I went to my old alma mater, Ryerson University, to get educated about purported special advantages inherent to caucasians at a white privilege conference being held there but a funny thing happened on my way to enlightenment when I was deemed persona non-grata and booted out!
If my skin tone grants me automatic special privilege, why was I given the bum’s rush?
In the end, they did us a favour by kicking us out. They spared us from the snooze-fest it surely was and gave us the opportunity to speak to numerous protesters gathered outside the venue.
For the record, I did try to get both sides of the story but many exiting the conference either didn’t want to talk to me or called me names!
