I read this article three times, trying to follow the “logic.”

But all I got was a big headache.

Via Daily Caller:

Oregon State University will host a workshop next week that will explain to students how ordering a coffee at Starbucks involves “implicit biases that contribute to injustice” and connects to the “recent killings of black men” by white cops.

The Jan. 19 workshop entitled “Making the Unknown Known: Exploring Implicit Bias in Everyday Life” is part of a nine-day Martin Luther King celebration at the school, reports Campus Reform.

Here’s Oregon State’s blurb explaining the 90-minute event:

“What do the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Fair Housing Act in late June, recent killings of black men by White [sic] police officers, and a person ordering coffee at Starbucks have in common? Answer: Implicit bias, which refers to attitudes or stereotypes that influence our perceptions, judgements [sic], and behaviors in an unconscious manner. In this workshop, participants will gain knowledge about the concept of implicit bias, discover how it shows up in their lives, and learn ways to uncover and challenge the implicit biases that contribute to injustice.”

Michele Ribeiro, Oregon State’s interim mental health promotion director, explained that going to Starbucks and purchasing coffee involves implicit bias and relates to white cops shooting black people “because it is a common, everyday thing people do.”…

    Makes me a little ashamed of Oregon. Nothing surprises me, though. We went from the awful John Kitzhaber to Kate Brown (by default) and there is little hope in sight. Contrast Portland and Eugene to Burns, Oregon. I think I would choose the desert..

    This started in 2013 from The Ohio State University. It’s just another pseudo science way of saying, if you don’t think like a leftist, you’re racist, sexist, etc. And the example given of buying Starbucks coffee is not correct. Even leftists don’t understand their malarkey.

    Leftist live in a delusion and actually believe lies.

    This explains why ISIS was justified in blowing up that Starbucks in Jakarta.
