Joe Kuilema

Dr. Joe Kuilema, an instructor at Calvin College, condemned all white people for being white supremacists after swastikas were found on campus. “As a white male, I benefit tremendously from institutions and systems that have been built by and for people like me. This is how the social sciences define racism, not as merely the product of prejudice, explicit or implicit bias, but a system of power based on the invention of the ‘white race’ by people in power.” According to Kuilema, any institution, including Congress and the college itself that were founded by white people is inherently an example of white privilege.
