‘Stop White People’ Class Offered at Binghamton University
A course is offered at Binghamton University, taught by three residential advisors, to help in racial situations with 'uneducated white people.'
The Daily Caller reports:
The State University of New York at Binghamton (SUNY-Binghamton) is offering a training class titled “StopWhitePeople2k16,” to instruct residential assistants (RAs) on how to deal with “uneducated” people who don’t believe in ideas like white privilege...“The premise of this session is to help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” the class description says. “Learning about these topics is a good first step, but when encountered with ‘good’ arguments from uneducated people, how do you respond? This open discussion will give attendees the tools to do so, and hopefully expand upon what they may already know.”
Syracuse.com reports the SUNY Binghampton response:
The State University of New York at Binghamton says its new "Stop White People" program shouldn't be taken literally...However, Binghamton University officials told The Press & Sun Bulletin that "Stop White People" is based on a Twitter hashtag used ironically. BU Vice President for Student Affairs Brian Rose said the educational content is not "anti-white" and was not created by the college itself.
