College Suspends Classes to Discuss ‘Sports Privilege’ in Workshops

Huh? Yes, a college suspended classes to discuss how sports culture exudes white privilege:

Williams College recently hosted a day of workshops on power and privilege where students discussed how American sports have “consistently reflected the hegemonic political discourse of the day.”

In a workshop titled “Not Just a Game,” participants explored the ways in which “sports culture” has reinforced “elite narratives about nationalism, war, gender, race, homosexuality, and capitalism.”
