UChicago United, a woke student organization at The University of Chicago, has announced their upcoming events for the academic year.  One such event,  “Race @ UChicago” has made it clear….no whites allowed.  The event emphasizes that the event is “A BIPOC-ONLY space.”

A woke Minnesota high school is addressing comments from a school administrator, Vice Principal Laura Wagner, at Farmington High School.  Wagner suggested staff  to use their “straight, white privilege” to defend new gender neutral prom titles.
