“how we can all work together to help achieve racial justice”
The left constantly accuses people of racism. Then we get something like this.

University to host ‘It’s OK to be (Against) White(ness)’ event
An upcoming talk titled “It’s OK to be (Against) White(ness)” is stirring up controversy at a Canadian university.
The event, scheduled for Monday and sponsored by the student association at Trent University in Ontario, has been accused by some of being “inflammatory” and racist against whites.
However, an event organizer has pushed back against those accusations, saying the gathering is about “diversity, inclusion and conversations about how we can all work together to help achieve racial justice.”
The event, which has a full title of “It’s OK to be (Against) White(ness): Racial injustice in a time of racist entrenchment,” will include a keynote address given by University of Regina professor Michael Cappello.
While the talk has stoked criticism and controversy, a Trent University spokesperson told The College Fix in an email that the university is not anticipating protests or protesters at the workshop. Though, the university said that security will be provided at the event.
An online description of the lecture describes Cappello as an “anti-oppressive educator” whose previous academic work “has focused on teaching/learning against colonialism and teaching/learning into reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.”
In a statement published Feb. 26 on Facebook, the Trent Central Student Association said the event’s title is a spoof on the “It’s OK to be white” posters that were hung up late last year at college campuses in the U.S. and Canada.
