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.” (RELATED: ‘White Privilege’ Checklist Posted At University Of Minnesota)
The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the school and “Tongues Untied” for comment, but received none in time for press.
