University of Colorado Anti-Racism Event Cancelled Because Organizers Are White

If you're white, don't bother trying to protest racism, because that's just another way in which your white privilege suppresses voices of color.

Case in point: an anti-racism rally planned at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to show solidarity with black activists at the University of Missouri was cancelled because - wait for it - the protest organizers are white.

As Breitbart's Lee Stranahan reports, the rally was nixed under pressure from the school’s Black Student Alliance, whose co-president Paris Ferribee said, “It’s not anyone that’s being affected telling the story, it’s only white people telling the story.” The rally was planned by students in a CU course called “Whiteness Studies.” That's right, college students don't have time to study Shakespeare, Chaucer, or other dead white males because they're too busy taking classes in how irredeemably racist white people are.

Ferribee was incensed by white students striving for solidarity against racism:

“That’s a slap in the face and that’s practicing racism, whether they want to believe it or not. They used their white privilege and oppressed voices and stifled voices that are experiencing this every day.”

Once upon a time in the civil rights movement, blacks and whites marched together against racism. Today that's not possible because all whites are oppressors, "whether they want to believe it or not." So much for progress in the civil rights movement.
