UNC-Chapel Hill Bars White Students From New Art Club Called ‘Earthtones’

“it is difficult to express oneself as a person of color in other clubs or spaces that are predominantly white”

This is illegal, yet things like this happen at various schools.

The College Fix reports:

UNC art club excludes white students

White students are excluded from a new art club this year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill called “Earthtones.”

“I think the idea of Earthtones is just to celebrate the brown people in our community and just pay homage to the beautiful color spectrum we create,” member Eliyambuya Baker told The Daily Tar Heel.

The club is “an atmosphere that cultivates a community free from tokenization, filtering, or exploitation,” according to a Google form for sign-ups. “We’re creating a living, breathing, network of artists of color to explore creative expression and learn from each other.”

The no-whites-allowed club has sparked an interest in creating other groups that shut out white people. “Inspired by the organization, [executive member Ye-Bon] Hong, a dramatic arts major, eventually wants to start her own theater company consisting entirely of people of color,” the Tar Heel reported.

The group is a “safe space” for “artists of color” the campus newspaper summarized Lucienne Boileve, another member, as saying.

“While the organization is one of several art-centric clubs at UNC, Boileve said that it is difficult to express oneself as a person of color in other clubs or spaces that are predominantly white,” the paper reported.

UNC is not the only campus to host programming that excludes white people, all in the name of diversity.

Arizona State University hosted a theater event called “The Color Cabaret” that excluded white actors. Only after publication of The College Fix story did ASU come out and try to claim it was open to anyone. However, a campus news release included a quote that would clearly tell white people they were not welcome.

“The club is “an atmosphere that cultivates a community free from tokenization, filtering, or exploitation,”

I unequivocally disagree. It does exactly what it purports NOT to do. Token colors, token filtering, token exploitation by the university. “Let us hold you up by your color and not merit or aptitude.”

The Ghost of George Wallace texts: “I always knew those pointy-heads would end up segregating themselves.”

As long as the first spree shooting or fentanyl bust at this establishment gets blamed on Donald Trump, I say, let them have it.

And I demand entry! Is not “limestone” an “earth color”? How about “sand”? How about white agate?
I demand they stop geological appropriation!

it is difficult to express oneself as a person of color

Why? What does your color have to do with it?

But try to start a club just for whites and the fun begins! 💥🌋⚡🔥

From US Dept Education website:
“What is Title VI?
Title VI is a federal law that prohibits any entity that receives federal financial assistance (such as grants or student loans) from discriminating on the basis of race, color, or national origin.”

Looks pretty straight forward to me that UNC must refund ALL federal financial funding if they choose to be racist and support blatant racists. Their choice.

How about a new club open only to those excluded by this Earth-Tones club? Oh wait, that would be RACIST.
