University College London was forced to apologize after a “dreaming of a white campus” tweet was deemed racist by “snowflake students.” The tweet had been intended to let students know the campus was still open as some parts of Britain remained covered by 13 inches of snow.
The tweet said: “Dreaming of a white campus? Our campuses will be open and operating fully today, Monday 11 December, so please make your way in as planned. (We can’t guarantee snow but we’ll try!) #snowday #londonsnow.”
One twitter user replied: “You know who else dreamt of a white campus? Hitler, that’s who. Disgusting... ...look into the history of the oppression of the PoC [People of Color],”

Not sure about the rest of you but the first thing that pops into my mind when I see snow is my profound White Privilege.
I think about how some people I never knew or were related to stole some land from some brown people and started a country where other brown people were paid nothing for their labors so my ancestors could come here from their home to allow me to live in a place where I have to shovel my mother ####### roof when it snows.
