White students banned from UK Black History Month events

A row has erupted after a student union banned white students from attending some Black History Month events.

The University of Westminster’s student union told students that some events will be ‘reserved for black students to encourage a safe space for discussions and honest conversations.”

It did not specify which events in an email sent to students.

Dr Neil Thin, a social anthropology lecturer at Edinburgh University, posted online: “Fashionable nonsense 2020s style: activists confuse people by reintroducing racial segregation to "anti-racist" events.

“Thankfully this is still extremely rare in UK, but if students and lecturers are too scared to comment, please don't assume this will go away.”

Wow, that student union have become what they say they despise.

They have somewhat haven't they. Its an indication of how far removed we are from the ideals of Martin Luther King.

They want us to learn to overcome racism, yet exclude others from participating in the events. Then how are you suppose to learn geniuses?!
