A Virginia Tech instructor apologized to students of color in her syllabus and urged white students to “join” her on the journey of confronting “innate racism,” Campus Reform reports.
Dr. Crystal Duncan Lane, an instructional faculty member in the Department of Human Development and Family Science, made the controversial remarks in her “Who I Am” section for the Human Development 1134 syllabus.
“I am a Caucasian cisgender female and first-generation college student from Appalachia who is of Scottish, British, and Norwegian heritage. I am married to a cisgender male, and we are middle class. While I did not ‘ask’ for the many privileges in my life: I have benefitted from them and will continue to benefit from them whether I like it or not,” she began. “This is injustice.”
Duncan Lane said she will continue to “daily” work on being an “antiracist” and “confront the innate racism within myself that is the reality and history of white people.”
She wrote: “I want to be better: Every day. I will transform: Every day. This work terrifies me: Every day.”
The instructor concluded: “I invite my white students to join me on this journey. And to my students of color: I apologize for the inexcusable horrors within our shared history.”
Natalie Rhodes, a Virginia Tech student, told Campus Reform, “It is a class about disabilities, not political opinion, affiliation, nor judgment in any sort. If you are discussing disabilities, stick to your course.”
The instructor’s areas of research at the public university are listed as “family stress and resilience, instrumentation, and death, dying, and bereavement.”
