Sounds like taxpayer dollars going to waste:

Arizona State University’s Center for the Study of Race and Democracy (CSRD) hosted three events this weekend on “white privilege and oppression from systemic organizational design.”

The diversity trainings, led by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr.,were split up into a two-hour lecture on Thursday night, a two-hour lecture on Friday night, and an all-day workshop on Saturday.

Moore’s long resume touts his involvement in many projects relating to white privilege, including a workshop titled “I Am George Zimmerman: A Courageous Conversation about White Supremacy, White Privilege, & Oppression,” in reference to the shooter of Trayvon Martin.

Moore’s signature project, though, is the “White Privilege Conference,” an annual weekend conference on race featuring activities such as segregated “racial caucuses” in which attendees are split up based on race once a day to discuss their own experiences in racially-exclusionary rooms.
