Much was made of a recent attempt to pass a law in Arizona, that would allow them to discriminate against people who they do not wish to work for. Gays especially called it vile and criminal. They kept silent when a hair salon refused to do the hair of the governor of NM, because the governor does not support gay marriage.
We see the hypocrisy everyday. This article is about college staff members of color holding a secretive Happy Hour, which expressly denied whites access to. And this college is funded by taxpayer dollars.
You would not think in this day and age such a thing could be possible, but it is. Little community college in Olympia, Washington, decided to hold a “Happy Hour” in order to “build support and community” for “people of color.” This event is being sponsored by the Diversity and Equity Center at South Puget Sound Community College at the college’s (taxpayer’s) expense. The email says specifically that whites are not welcome. It goes on to say that if you are the right color to contact them for the secret time and place for the Happy Hour.
The email included advice for whites though:
“If you want to create space for white folks to meet and work on racism, white supremacy, and white privilege to better our campus community and yourselves, please feel free to do just that.”
