    University announces “White Awake” safe space for white students

    "Original story: The University of Maryland at College Park announced Friday a new diversity support group to create a “safe space” for white students to discuss their feelings about “interactions with racial and ethnic minorities.”

    The support group, called “White Awake,” will help white students who may “sometimes feel uncomfortable and confused before, during, or after interactions with racial and ethnic minorities.”"

    ". . . Update: After publication of this article, University of Maryland-College Park changed the name of the group to "Anti-Racism and Ally Building Group," along with a shorter description, which reads, "Do you want to improve your ability to relate to and connect with people different from yourself? Do you want to become a better ally? Members will support and share feedback with each other as they learn more about themselves and how they can fit into a diverse world."

    In a statement provided to Campus Reform on Friday, the university explained the name change: "Our Counseling Center acknowledges that we did not choose the right words in raising awareness about this research-based initiative, and how this group has been perceived is counter to the values of inclusiveness and diversity that we embody. Therefore, we are renaming the group to better reflect our intention and values."

    Of course, they caved in and now it will be a multicultural group.

    Best thing to do is try to have as few interactions as possible.

    Students could try and make an off-campus group but they'll more than likely be disciplined, but its ok for nonwhites to have these types of groups.
