VIDEO: Students Undergo “Disturbing Sensory Experiences” to Make Them Less “Oppressive”

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

College students at San Diego State University are taking "social justice "to a new level, undergoing what organizers call "disturbing sensory experiences" aimed to drive out students' "oppressive" tendencies. 

The event was put on by an annual workshop called "Journey to a Shared Humanity." From the workshop's website

Each year, San Diego State University challenges its community to step outside their comfort zone and into the shoes of those who are struggling with oppressive circumstances. Through an event titled “A Shared Humanity,” participants will be guided through a series of vignettes that highlight the many forms of oppression people face every day.

“A Shared Humanity” is an element of Residential Education’s larger goal to better inform SDSU students on a variety of social issues. The event succeeds in challenging predisposed beliefs and attitudes.

A Facebook event page describes the experiences as "disturbing."  

During the event, students go into various rooms to see different scenes acted out. On one such scene, students saw a black man yelling at them, telling them to face the wall and not make eye contact with him. 

Check out some of the scenes caught on video: 

For some students, attending the workshop was not optional; they were required to attend the event as a part of their courses. 

Most Americans are aware that left-wing thought dominates on college campuses today. But forcing students to endure "disturbing" sensory experiences to drive out apparent prejudices elevates this notion to a level that's almost comical. In fact, it would be hilarious if it weren't so terrifying. 

Our tax dollars continue to be funneled to colleges that claim to promote diversity, yet it's clear that in the eyes of college administrators and professors, diversity stops with skin color. There is little room for diversity of thought. Among professors themselves, those who self-identify as liberal outnumber those who self-identify as conservative 12-1

Unfortunately, today, it seems as though the primary goal of many college professors is to pump out little social justice warriors, rather than to prepare young people with real-world skills they will need later in life to be self-sufficient. Many of these recent grads get a rude awakening when they graduate and realize that their protesting skills and Bachelors Degree in Genders Studies don't offer much in the way of job prospects.

Andrew, if you are in fact a junior professor, consider your question and ask it of yourself!!!

How is this different than being “forced” to watch Jordan Peterson’s drivel in class?

Anyone get any Clockwork Orange flashbacks?

And what is the point of all that? Are there concentration camps in the US?
There are camps for illegals, essentially criminals by being illegally in the US, but they aren’t treated anything like being a prisoner of Germany in WWII.

Lots of the self-diluted expecting the young minds – prepared by the elementary and high school experience – to believe this malarky is oh-so-cutting edge.

I had teachers like that in CEGEP – mandatory college before university. At first it seems sensible. Then I listened more to what they were preaching. All railing against the system from which they suckled as much as they could. They had no concerns for the students when they went on strike for (say it aient so!) more money. So we almost lost a year because of them. It didn’t bother them one bit.

One of the profs took a look at the new camera I had saved and purchased with my own money. It was the top of the line. He then bitched at me how the money I spent could have housed and feed a poor family instead of me buying the camera. I looked at him, held my tongue because he could fail me in an instant, but thought, “Jackass, you just bought a brand new car YESTERDAY. Why weren’t you giving that money to the poor and take the bus like the rest of us?”

They are all socialists until it comes to padding their own pocket and enjoying the better things in life on your dime. They just like creating little sycophants.

Nothing like the simulated POW interrogation training the SAS go through nor the water boarding that Navy Seals and submarine crews endure.
