Just when you thought we were in the 21st Century.

One the most academically accredited colleges in the world allowed a group of activist students to hold a group meeting about racism.

But the group insisted the White supporters not attend.

Why?

They thought their presence would make students of color feel unsafe !!

Education is a terrible thing to waste.

🙈🙉🙊

Georgetown Students Host Community Dialogue on Racism, Ask White Allies Not to Attend

Student-activists at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., recently hosted a community dialogue on racism. White students—even those who consider themselves "allies" to the cause—were asked not to attend, out of concern their mere presence would make students of color feel unsafe.

The event was hosted by Georgetown United Against Police Aggression, which is currently pushing back against conservative students' efforts to convince the administration to arm its police, who are real commissioned officers, even though Georgetown is a private school. The activists say armed officers would pose an increased risk for students of color, who have a disproportionate number of interactions with police.

"All of us know someone who has been targeted," the organizers of the event wrote on Facebook. "Let's do something about it." This message also said that "for the safety of students of color, allies are not welcome to attend this preliminary dialogue."

Privilege is being able to racially exclude people with impunity.


Race is a myth. Using it makes you a science denialist and a dangerous one at that.

I want this # to stop.

Fought hard to include everyone especially African-American people. But hey... let's bring back Segregation . There is no reason for this, why make up a fear out of thin air?🤔

I'm a White Male and wouldn't hurt a fly. How in the hell did I become the Devil?


Edit: Segregation:


the action or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things or being set apart.

"the segregation of pupils with learning difficulties"

the enforced separation of different racial groups in a country, community, or establishment.

"an official policy of racial segregation"



Enough Already!

Whites should just stop talking to them.

Ignore them.

Not interact at all besides being polite.

Let's see who gets violent.





Just watched this racist vid.


Has a white baby in it.




Then this rocks.

These black hate groups are fueled by revenge motives. Excluding whites makes them feel powerful and in charge, next step is what they always do, calls for kill whitey.

Those in charge of the blue zones let them get away with it so they won't leave the voter plantations.

I don't understand why they just don't join the party.

Like Carnival or Mardi Gras?

Someone is feeding them BS.

What is the solution to these types of things happening? Any suggestions or are we just here to circle jerk each other and make racist innuendos and generalizations?

This group is pretty dumb for doing this but I wouldn't be surprised if the organizers were paid to make such exclusions in order to rile up the victim complexes and hate in people such as those commenting in this thread so far. Stir as much # as possible, that's the name of the game and people keep taking the bait.

I agree with you this time.

The best thing to have done would have been to have all students present.

This is ostracizing white people because of their skin color.

Are they really saying that no one has been raciest to any of them EXCEPT white people?

That can not possibly be true. ALL humans have been raciest, are raciest, or will be a raciest to someone at some point.

There were white people who have been the victims of racism that were not allowed to attend.

But I guess you can say that ALL the white students of that school have now been victims of racism.

Pulled this from the GUAPA Facebook page:

It's time to talk. All of us have a story about GUPD. All of us know someone who has been targeted. Let's do something about it. Come this Tuesday for community and discussion. This space will center the voices and experiences of students of color, allies for the safety of students of color, allies are not welcome to attend this preliminary dialogue. Food will be provided.


I think it's exactly what it sounds like.

Don't take the f'n bait!



Not in the Congo.

Whites loved these guys.



Like a tequila night after we closed the resto.

It's amazing the hip hop rap BS is making people rich.

Such a nice and simple way to say something that has so much truth in it. Star for you sir.

Humanity really could be (is) one big family having a great time with each other.

We just have to get passed tribalism and the need to kill over traditions.

Change is the natural state of a human being. It is our wish for things to stay the same that fuels so much hate in this world.

Being part of an interracial family we have the approach that Hate, Bigotry, ignorance towards Race and Religion has to be taught. it is not something someone is born with. HATE IS TAUGHT.

We teach our kids, neices, nephews that Bullying is Not OK.
Everyone is different and that's just fine.

The media and institutions of higher learning need to go back to actual journalism and Teaching. Get back to the classroom and earn your "C". A "C" is a degree.... kids! You are not Farking special.

Again, Quit making up fake boogie men. your safe spaces are ARBITRARY.

Having more sex with people who have different color skin.

allies are not welcome to attend this preliminary dialogue


Though this part does make it sound like there will be more full meetings that invite "allies".
Allies being white friends I imagine.

That's a lot less terrible. Maybe this is more of a preliminary meeting for the organizers?
Lets not make the same mistake we are accusing them of and judge this so harshly.

More info is needed about what this meeting is exactly and how future meetings will be conducted.

It does look bad though because victims of a crime shouldn't blame every member of a race for what happened to them.
