HAHAHA I was born and raised in the south. 42 freaking years. I never seen one white person support the KKK. Ive never seen a clansman my whole life. The KKK hasn't been relevant in almost 30 years!!!
What's the matter with you!! Don't you know that it is illegal for "white" people to feel discriminated against in this f-ed up world!!! Lmao.
Now if it said #StopBlackPeople2K16, then you have the right to feel discriminated against!!
Jeezez, this is basic economic principle!!
Raitses also explained what lead to his decision to run the story, "So, someone who knew an RA received a photo of the piece and they shared it with us and we decided that it was something that should be shared with the public." "We felt that because this story was something that was sort of hidden from the students that the university thought that 'oh, it's ok that we run this.' But, at the same time, it's not ok," added Raitses. "We thought that this kind of racism, at least on the part of the university should not stand."
I'm an ally of people of color, and I work on social justice issues. However, there is a problematic trend recently of people thinking it's okay to say offensive or problematic things to white people, things that would be called racist for any other group.

My god, the average quality of the posters here has shrunk so far it's barely even anything more than an Alex Jones spinoff. Not one person calling the OP out on his BS?
OP, your post is BS and you seem to be an ass. It's not that hard to understand the issues involved and see that things like this are perfectly justified and that greater verbal sensitivity should be applied towards black people than white people. Except apparently the majority of white people are such whiny babies that they are mortally wounded by language that is perhaps one one-hundredth of the level of abuse that black people have collectively enjoyed in western society during the last few centuries. Grow the hell up and look honestly at the way the world around you works with empathy and compassion and understanding, if you have the heart and balls for it.

The white skinned populace is shrinking while other complexions and ethnicity are growing.
We can only pray that when white skin becomes a minority they have the decency to drop this # and not take it as an opportunity for some imagined payback against people who've never done a damn think to them and who's only crime is the color of their skin.
Wise words. Maybe those who are currently doing just what you are afraid whites might when they are a minority ought to stop setting up a circumstance that would create such bad blood.
After all, if nothing untoward was going on, then you wouldn't have any reason to fear that eventuality would you? After all, all that would happen is less people of white skin and nothing else. But the very fact that you think whites might have cause to seek revenge reflects that you know something is going on that is actually unfair towards that demographic. Otherwise, there would be no reason to express anxiety.

We all know here on ATS that that is still questionable.
Plus, mayans and egyptians have evidence of aerial vehicles, not to mention most of those great civilizations suddenly 'dissappeared'....Hmmmmm i wonder where they went.
The premise, apparently, is to correct people who don’t acknowledge the concept of white privilege. Howard Hecht, a writer for the Binghamton Review, responded: “The terrifying implication here is not that students on campus think it is appropriate to call an event by that name, but that the university seems to endorse it as a proper part of a RA training.”

No, I don't believe they are only things for white people, but that's the point. People who do this don't care.
There very much are groups of people out there who do and have labeled them as racist things. Here, for example, is the clip of Melissa Harris Perry telling us that "hard worker" is racist.
So, there you go. That's one American value right there that's been labeled. So now I can't talk about people being hard workers or working hard because people like her and others like her have labeled that as racist language associated with slaves and their forced labor not working hard because you want to get ahead and doing so voluntarily.
