LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Rob Shimshock
The University of Minnesota is banning white and straight students from a safe space on campus, according to a Thursday report.
The school’s Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life hosts “Tongues Untied,” a space in which people can congregate to discuss the impact of sexuality, race and gender, according to Campus Reform. But not everyone is invited.
“For our allies: we do appreciate your voices and commitment to dismantling racism and homophobia; however, please note that this is a space created for LGBTQIA and/or same-gender-loving people of color,” the space’s description reads.
“If you identify as a queer and/or trans indigenous person or person of color, we welcome you to take part in our discussions,” states the group’s Facebook page.
A “White Privilege Checklist” found earlier in 2017 at the University of Minnesota contained statements such as “I can go shopping alone most of the time, pretty well assured that I will not be followed or harassed,” and “Whether I use checks, credit cards, or cash, I can count on my skin color not to work against the appearance of financial responsibility.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the school and “Tongues Untied” for comment, but received none in time for press.
