Looks like we spotted the Uncle Tom folks. Which Democrat group gave you permission to not agree and not fit stereotypes of people of color?

Hmmm, as a mixed race, I'm not really sure how I should feel. My white half just wants to shake their head at the stupidity of someone taking offense to this, but the brown half just wants to shake their head at the stupidity.......oh wait, nm, crisis averted. lol

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],”
Well, this holiday season should be fun, because it's now racist to point out that snow is white.
A university in London has officially apologized after a twitter post to let students know that the campus would be open despite the recent snow (which happened to be white). If that wasn't enough, student Kumail Jaffer compared the University's tweet to Hitler...
Because apparently if you like seeing snow, you're basically Hitler.
Thankfully, the University seems to have drawn more scorn for their apology than the original tweet itself, with many recognizing the obvious absurdity of apologizing for such a thing.
University College London
OP's source added their own verbiage onto the tweet they quoted. there was no text about POC and what they've been through. looks like a joke to me, to be quite honest.
