Does this mean white students could identify as black on school and loan applications? That could create some problems.

I know a cover-up happened at Brown/RISD Hillel over an anti-Israel “Nakba Day” event held on the premises organized by a small group of leftist Jews and anti-Israel campus allies.

How do I know? I was there.

Such an event arguably violated Hillel International’s Israel Guidelines (aka Standards of Partnership), but it is not...
