Two professors at the University of Northern Iowa have theorized that being civil in college classrooms is a form of racism and that such behavior reinforces “white racial power.”
The two also claim that attempting to “treat everyone the same” is a way to “erase racial identity.” They call this Caucasian dysfunction, “whiteness informed civility,” which according to the professors is also a form of racism.
The bottom line appears, at least to these two, to be that being uncivil to persons of color is racist, and being civil is also.
