University Of Arizona To Use Taxpayer Funds to Hire Students To Be Social Justice Warriors
University of Arizona Wants Paid Social Justice Warriors
Tucson, AZ – The University of Arizona is paying students to be social justice advocates and report on what they perceive to be ‘bias incidents’ and ‘socially insensitive behavior.’
According to The Washington Times, the students are being paid $10 per hour, for about 15 hours per week, to be social justice advocates. The students are focusing mainly on residence halls, and are also creating social justice posters to hang in the dorms and ‘partnering’ with other groups to hold social justice events on campus.
“Social justice” is generally used to demonize police as racist, and you’d be hard pressed to find a “social justice” activist who doesn’t think police are racist.
According to the position’s description part of being a social justice advocate is “confronting” socially insensitive behavior. Depending on how they go about confronting people about their hurt feelers, the assault rate on campus may increase.
An online job description gave a further description of the job: “The position also aims to increase understanding of one’s own self through critical reflection of power and privilege, identity and intersectionality, systems of socialization, cultural competency, and allyship as they pertain to the acknowledgement, understanding, and acceptance of differences.”
So instead of using taxpayer money to increase education at the college, University officials have decided to start this program.
No further information has been released as who is actually behind this, or what the motive is. I checked the University of Arizona web site, and the application process has been closed pending the “process of reviewing the title and responsibilities.”
What happened to someone having a conversation with somebody if they feel like something is insensitive?
Do you think that this is a good use of taxpayer money? We’d like to hear from you. Please let us know in the comments./
