We Ain't Racist...

...we is just an affinity group.

An Illinois high school principal is defending his decision to exclude white students from a “Black Lives Matter” event held at his school.

On February 27th, Oak Park and River Forest High School principal, Nathaniel Rouse, hosted a “Black Lives Matter” event exclusively for black students. The assembly was intended to culminate Black History Month with a discussion on race relations. Approximately 350 black individuals attended the event. When white students attempted to attend the assembly, however, they were denied entry.

Rouse defended his decision to keep non-black students from the assembly by referring to the concept of “affinity groups.” According to the school’s statement, “Racial affinity groups are often used in learning communities to help facilitate positive identity exploration and provide people with similar experiences a space in which to pose questions and process topics.”


Affinity groups. I'll have to remember that one.

The principal, though, has a small point; ever since Ferguson, the "Black Lives Matter" movement, and especially the protests, has been co-opted by white leftists trying to earn street cred by marching with the brothers. (then, of course, they return to their exclusive white neighborhoods and do very white things)
