Talk about privilege:

The University of Connecticut agreed to pay White Fragility author Robin DiAngelo $20,000 for a three and a half-hour lecture to administrators.

The lecture, titled “Seeing the Racial Water," is scheduled to take place in November as part of a professional development retreat for 44 of UConn’s “top” administrators. According to a July 23 announcement by UConn, “this retreat will help University leadership come to grips with the critical questions of racism and inclusion, and to bring those insights back to our campuses.”

A contract between DiAngelo, who is listed as an "affiliate associate professor" at the Univerisity of Washington, and the University of Connecticut’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion states that DiAngelo will receive $20,000 for her services, as well as up to $2,000 for lodging and travel, according to a copy of the contract obtained by Campus Reform. Additionally, DiAngelo will " not accommodate phone calls related to services," and if a phone call to DiAngelo is necessary, the school will be charged $320 per hour.
