Who Is The Hater In This Story?

A "diversity happy hour" was canceled at a Washington state community college, when the emailed invitation said white people were not welcome. “White folks” were urged to meet separately to “work on racism, white supremacy and white privilege.”

The program coordinator at South Puget Sound Community College’s Diversity & Equity Center, Karama Blackhorn, who helped write the email, said the center “is not for white people. That space is for people of color.”
There so much wrong in this story--and it's not with "white folks".   What's even more interesting than the obvious racism is the fact that this person feels completely free to publish such beliefs without any fear of any social opprobrium.  That's the real story here.

Somehow I don't think Dr. King would be proud.

Ms. Blackhorn is a real piece of work--a fine product of the American higher (?) education system!

The most amusing thing is, if the white students had taken that invitation, and excluded anyone else, they would be de facto racist.
