Comedian Chelsea Handler appeared on "The View" Wednesday where she told the show's co-hosts that white people ought to be "uncomfortable" with their white identities and suggested that white people attend racial sensitivity classes as a remedy.
What are the details?
Handler explained that she visited liberal college campuses to talk to black students about white privilege while filming her new Netflix documentary, "Hello, Privilege. It's Me, Chelsea." During her visits to the colleges, the comedian also took advantage of participating in sensitivity training and sexual harassment classes.
Handler pointed out that during one of her stops at the University of Southern California, she had a particularly uncomfortable time after black students told her that she was exercising her white privilege simply by making a documentary about white privilege.
"There were black people in that room that were taking me to task saying, 'All you do is come in here and take, take, take,'" Handler recalled. "You making a documentary about white privilege is an example of your privilege, and I' — yes, that's correct, and it was good for me to hear."
Handler said many white people just aren't woke enough and "don't want to be uncomfortable" by admitting their white privilege.
"Guess what! It's OK to be uncomfortable!" she blared. "We can afford to be a little uncomfortable after everything that's happened and stretch our, kind of, brains and our bodies to — to put ourselves in situations that aren't natural, that aren't comfortable."
Handler also noted the necessity of taking racial sensitivity classes.
"We should all be taking all of those classes!" she insisted, and pointed out the importance of white people living in diverse communities to mix it up even more and force comfort on everyone in the community.
