Daily WireThe State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton is now offering a course called “#StopWhitePeople2K16” as part of routine training for residential assistants.

The university’s residential assistant training schedule lists “#StopWhitePeople2016” on its roster, with the mission of giving RA’s an “overview of disabilities in Higher Education.”

The presenters of the course, Ciaran Slattery, Nicholas Pulakos, and Urenna Nwogwugwu, are all RAs at the state-funded college, which describes itself as New York’s highest-ranking public college. They state their purpose is to “help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” presumably the “white” society they plan to “stop” at the event.

The three RAs claim they will give “#StopWhitePeople2K16” course attendees the “tools” to respond to “uneducated people” with “‘good’ arguments.”

Has training for “understanding diversity” – titles it “Stop White People”


I haven’t attended the course so I don’t have the tools to respond to their argument I don’t think. All I know is I’m super curious what the plan is to #StopWhitePeople and how that plan is going to make our society function better? Do we just kill all the white people? Do we put them on a separate land form like an island or something? Some interesting things to think about.

Definitely glad we’re stepping up RA training though. Back in my day all our RA did was write us tickets for drinking and have a pizza party once a semester. Happy they’re getting a little more responsibility, like stopping entire races.
