#StopWhitePeople2K16 training for RAs was named ‘ironically,’ public university says

Diversity official: ‘I don’t see a problem with it’

#StopWhitePeople2K16: It’s just a joke.

That’s the explanation from the State University of New York-Binghamton on how the inflammatory hashtag made it into the name of a training session for resident assistants (RAs).

Advertising itself as the best public college in New York and “ranked among the elite public universities in the country,” SUNY-Binghamton found itself on the defensive this week after its conservative student newspaper published a photo of the Aug. 12 training agenda.

The session titled “#StopWhitePeople2K16” was intended to “help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” according to the description.
A modern snapshot of government schools promoting hate. It would be too bad if someone filed a Title 9 complaint for what looks like a threatening and hostile learning environment against white students.
