University of Maryland (not a great school in my book), is giving classes on how to be white. When will this crap end? Being white is great. I tell people all the time that Western Europeans made this country great. All the discoveries from Italy, England, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Greece and on and on, they killed it. Many of the Western cultures came here to America and brought the best of their traditions. We prospered under there creations and discoveries. Wall St was built by the Dutch, banking was English and Swiss. Italy and France with there fashion, there art and of course, food. Italy brought there building know how to the United States, great engineers and builders. The Germans, great scientists as well as engineers. You get the point. So for some second rate flunky college, many colleges with flunky teachers who are devoid of any life long experiences to say white people need to learn how to act around minorities, I say, minorities need to learn from us! We built, we create, we have high IQ’s, we are a civil race. I don’t need to be told that I am doing something wrong or have to bend over backwards for anyone. I either like somebody or I don’t, plain and simple.
Classes like this will only make white people feel uncomfortable or like they do not know how to treat people. White people on campus are not having whites only parties like some of the minorities that they want them to get to know by some stupid course. This is an outrage and it stinks of the New World Order. The odor of George Soros is all over it. Left wing socialists who want to reek havoc on the norm is all over programs like this. Conservatives need to protest this, file a law suit to prevent this. This crap has gone on for to long. Enough is enough with this type of teaching in school. Students at $60,000.00 a year need to learn there core requirements, a class like this is a waste of money. Then again, so is going to Maryland University anyway.
- The new group is now one of four in the university’s “Diversity Issues” program series.
- The announcement has been met with wide criticism from students on social media.
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.”
Campus Reform reached out to UMD for a comment after the name of the group was changed, but has not heard back.
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.”
“This group offers a safe space for White students to explore their experiences, questions, reactions, and feelings,” the description explains. “Members will support and share feedback with each other as they learn more about themselves and how they can fit into a diverse world.”
The description asks students if they want to “improve [their] ability to relate to and connect with people different from [themselves]” or if they want to become a better “ally.” The new group is now one of four in the university’s “Diversity Issues” program series.
The group is being led by Noah Collins, who works for the UMD Counseling Center, and will be held once a week. Collins specializes in group therapy and is interested “especially in the areas of racial and cultural awareness,” according to his faculty bio.
The safe space has been met with harsh criticism from students on social media.
“I am ashamed over the execution of white awake nor do I fully understand its clause. ‘How they can fit into a diverse world’? Why do they need to attend therapy sessions on how to be a decent human being in society?” a UMD student wrote on Twitter. “Why do they need to have these sessions to learn how to coexist?”
“Just like classes. You can’t take one class and feel like you have all understanding over a certain subject,” the student added. “It takes practice, it takes problems, it takes more than one course, so ‘White Awake’ has good intention but I am skeptical over the fairytale result.”

Will you help expose liberal bias on America’s campuses?
Campus Reform exposes the liberal bias and abuse against conservatives on America’s colleges and universities.
As a Campus Reform reader, you know about the abuse taking place at our nation’s higher education institutions, and you know how important it is to bring these stories to light.
College campuses are no longer bastions of higher learning. Professors indoctrinate students with their agendas. They even silence conservative students with their attempts to suppress free speech.
Campus Reform depends on the financial support of concerned Americans like you to report on leftist indoctrination on college campuses and uncover the blatant misconduct of university administrators, faculty, and students.
Your tax-deductible gift will expose these attacks to millions of Americans.
