Oh, Joy: Seattle City-Run Class Will Teach Citizens about "White Fragility"

Taxpayer funded, baby.

A city-run class will be available to residents of Seattle if they want to learn about "white fragility." The course will teach attendees about why they can't handle issues of race.
Lecturer Robin DiAngelo, who coined the term, is teaching the taxpayer-funded class for the city Office of Arts and Culture. She defines white fragility as "a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves."

...

The Office of Arts and Culture is funded to the tune of $8.3M of taxpayer dollars. There will be two 4-hour classes, on held on August 17 and one on September 7.
