A group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College caused outrage after they made it clear that white people would not be welcome at a planned diversity “happy hour” event.
Many students at the college expressed their bewilderment at why a “diversity” event would specifically exclude people of a certain race.
“This….contradicts the message they’re trying to send, don’t judge people based on their color but they’re judging white people because they’re white” said one student.
However, Karama Blackhorn program coordinator for the school’s Diversity and Equity Center, who helped write the invitation said that space in the diversity event is not for white people!
This seems to mirror the true aim of the national diversity movement which dosn´t seem to be about equality for all. Instead it´s about special status and privileges for special interest groups.
One commenter on another website reporting this story wrote:
Many in this group celebrate diversity and fighting racism by practicing racism and shunning diversity.
Just look at the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington as well as the cities of Detroit, New Orleans, Oakland and Washington, D.C.
