“Racism is still prevalent and deeply ingrained in the fabric of our country”
Young America’s Foundation found out about this from documents obtained through a FOIA request.

EXPOSED: Internal Documents From Segregated RA Training At UC Davis Show Racism On Full Display
Resident Assistants at University of California Davis were taught how to “disrupt racism and white supremacy” during mandatory segregated trainings, according to internal documents obtained exclusively by Young America’s Foundation.
“Racism is still prevalent and deeply ingrained in the fabric of our country,” one of the documents states. RAs were forced to answer how they have “navigated the Black Lives Matter movement in light of the continual murder of Black Folx [sic]at the hands of police,” in addition to choosing a song that “sparks” their “confidence to engaged in social justice.”
YAF obtained these internal documents and training materials from their summer sessions through a Freedom of Information Act request.
In every segregated group, leaders were told to ask students, “what about your identity do you take pride in?” Only in the “Critical Whiteness” group were leaders specifically advised to NOT ask them this question, signaling that white people should be ashamed of being white.
The schedule advised leaders that “student staff should only participate in an affinity group if they hold that identity. These groups are not for those wanting to learn about that identity or to explore curiosity in that identity.”
