Earlier this month the principal of Lincoln High School in Seattle sent out a school-wide message advertising events for the school's "multicultural week."
Among those events was one that was, ah, let's call it "exclusive:"
Our student leaders in our Black Student Union (BSU), Latino Student Union (LSU), and Asian Student Union (ASU) have been hard at working planning our upcoming Multicultural Week March 13th-17th...
On Friday of Multicultural Week, students and staff of color and/or those who identify with any group represented by BSU/LSU/ASU are invited for a lunch potluck.
So yeah let's just call it what it is...
Of course it's racist! Certainly as racist as it would have been to bar, say, all black students from a "lunch potluck." How would that hit you??
Surprisingly (or maybe not surprisingly) this nasty little program didn't receive a huge amount of pushback from either local or national media. It seems to have been criticized mostly on local conservative talk radio and Reddit.
But apparently that's all it took!
As part of our celebration this week, a number of our student union clubs have planned a combined lunch gathering on Friday. This has been part of the planning of our student leaders. As with all our clubs, any student is invited to join and bring their lunch on Friday.
Just goes to show you that woke militants will often back down with even just a little pushback!
