    University Announces White Awake Safe Space for White Students

    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.

    {snip}

    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.

    {snip}

    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 universitys 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.

    The title and the original article is clickbait. But I like the idea of the group. Not all people are accepting and comfortable and they need a safe space to express themselves without being accused of hate crime or racism.

    White awake? More like white torture. "Awake" is a reference to "woke", what black activists call themselves when they are completely aware (lol) of "the system of white supremacy" they supposedly live under. Regardless of the group's name, this is another attempt to subvert young Anglo-Americans - this group is not pro-white at all, it exists to prepare first year students for the social justice madness at their university, that's to say, to learn to accept it and roll with it - and to become better allies of social justice causes, that's what "being an ally" means. The group is part of the university's diversity program(ming).

    The safe space has been met with harsh criticism from students on social media.
    There's just no pleasing the SJWs... Lord knows what their reasons are to object to this group, despite it completely serving their agenda - very typical. It's probably because it's an all-white group, making their brains go into overdrive. They probably stopped reading after the mentioning of a white safe space, although there's nothing safe about it. And/or they may think that they won't be able to have any input in the group - but they'll probably be there, at least one of these nutcases will be ... to lecture people who haven't been fully brainwashed yet.

    Lol very true though.

    There really isn’t any pleasing the SJWs. They are literally against anything. I have no more opinion when it comes to them because they are always beyond reason and will twist anything anyone says. It’s frustrating to deal with them.

    I just think it’ll be a good experiment. We’ll see.

    I think it’ll be good to see the result that it’s not gonna work. The Soviet Union and every single communist and socialist country are experiments of how those ideologies work - they don’t and never will. Even China is a capitalist communist country lol

    Modern liberalism is literally socialism.

    I think we need more information. There are lots of pretenders everywhere.

    But honestly, SJWs and liberal nutjobs need less platform as much as possible.
