Evergreen State College Resurrects No-Whites-Allowed "Day Of Absence"

‘In addition to POC centered events there will be antiracist workshops for white folks’

Students at the embattled Evergreen State College, which made national headlines last year after it hosted an event that asked white people not to come on campus for a “Day of Absence,” have organized a new iteration of the controversial event despite administrators’ efforts to shift gears.

Students at the Olympia, Washington-based public school have organized a three-day “Day of Absence” observance that includes a mix of events on and off campus. Some gatherings are advertised as open to all skin colors and others ask that only POC, or People of Color, attend.

A poster hung at the school obtained by The College Fix declares that the no-whites-allowed self-segregation events will be held off campus. It asks people to RSVP at a website that spells out “No Nazis Allowed” in its URL.

The events launch today and run through Friday, according to organizers, who are not interested in media coverage of their event, according to a Facebook screenshot obtained by The College Fix.

A spokesman for Evergreen State College did not respond to a phone call and email from The College Fix on Tuesday seeking comment.

The theme of this year’s observance is “Deinstitutionalize/Decolonize.”

“The mission of this event is to bring POC together in order to create a reclamation of space and move forward into the future. In reaction to institution’s consistent disregard for our safety, we are operating independently of the college. This is a day for us, by us,” the RSVP page states.

“In addition to POC centered events there will be antiracist workshops for white folks and people who do not identify as POC. Please bring a dish or your own packed lunch and dishes! Potluck-style. No one who’s intentions are to cause harm are allowed.”

The college’s annual “Day of Absence/Day of Presence” program has been observed for years, during which minority students would voluntarily stay off campus for a day and meet for specialized workshops. But for the first time last spring, the “Day of Absence” event reversed the usual pattern by asking whites to stay off campus for a day while racial minorities stayed on.

Following objections by a white biology professor, Bret Weinstein, students confronted him and campus police told Weinstein they couldn’t protect him on campus. After that, his class met at a nearby park. The situation prompted national headlines and criticism.

Earlier this year, officials announced they would revamp the controversial “Day of Absence” observance, instead offering an “equity symposium.”

For his part, Weinstein has weighed in on this year’s Day of Absence: “This is fascinating on many levels. The college canceled Day of Absence, so the students are going to do it.”

Last week, The Olympian reported that Evergreen State “will look to cut more than 10 percent from its operating budget for 2018-19 and raise student fees because of declining enrollment.”

This is so incredibly racist, how dark do you need to be to be "of color" is there some type of chart to check and see if you qualify? Are Asians from China or Japan and Korea considered of color or white? They are very light skinned.

Evergreen College has way too much unaccounted .gov money.

It is nothing short of abuse that a grifter's paradise like Evergreen can beg for and get welfare money from overworked and underpaid taxpayers in exchange for nothing but monumental stupidity.

They need their .gov money cut off.

And that includes utilities.

Let's see how long those obnoxious, ungrateful little grifters last when their cushy freebie college gets turned into a smelly hippy commune. 

Let some psycho like Soros fund the place, the brats are more akin to the likes of him anyway.

The whole place should be bought by a developer for residential or commercial use.

There are lots of research facilities that could easily refurbish the buildings for work that actually benefits society.

The academic tax grants have got to be correlated to post graduate employment rates or they are squandering .gov tax money.

Let them go and do what they want! My name is John Galt, I have a place with out over burdening government restrictions. It's for white crackers only, and their families. Rule of law is based on the first 5 books of the Bible, and additional insite from the profits. When ever this has been done, we have had kids running in the streets with out worry & a very profitable society. The perverts are always dead immediately, they get roped....

Fuck it. Let me just come out and say I am a racist. I don't like coloreds. I don't like faggots. I don't like Muslims. Do I get my own campus? My own state? My own school? FFS if I said any of the preceding in public my house would be burned down and I would be run out of the country. I expect that I will have to leave the US, eventually, in order to survive. There is no way this level of insanity is going to turn out well or without rivers of blood and savagery in the streets.

Civil War 2.0, here we come. It's kicked off but most people have not noticed. For now.

They’ve almost been lulled into thinking that they can pull off anything no matter how abominable. They will instigate violence, as now (the book “white girl bleed a lot” - comes to mind.) 

I don’t know if we’ll get there, but there’s a certain critical mass where the nuts go full-psycho and, suddenly there’s an awakening to the insanity — followed by a disproportionate but very definitive response.

Lower standards. 

Lower expectations. 

Scot Peterson, the sheriff’s deputy vilified for failing to confront the Parkland school shooter, has begun receiving a state pension of $8,702.35 a month.

Peterson resigned and retired Feb. 22, a week after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where he waited outside as Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people and wounded 17 others.

Peterson began to receive his pension in April, according to the Florida Department of Management Services. He can receive the payments for the rest of his life.

The 55-year-old Peterson, a Broward deputy for 32 years, was paid $101,879.03 last year — $75,673.72 in base salary plus overtime and other compensation, according to sheriff’s office records. Until the shooting, he was considered a trusted school resource officer at Stoneman Douglas, according to annual reviews of his performance.

Who cares what the deputy did or did not do. The event was staged. I doubt that anyone was actually harmed. If someone was killed, then they were sacrificed by the people behind the event.

Which does the greater harm:

The Federal Reserve or a teenager with a semi auto rifle?

The MICC or a teenager with a semi auto rifle?

Hillary or a teenager with a semi auto rifle?

NeoCons or a teenager with a semi auto rifle?

ha, it's even crazier than that. Since the cops wouldn't charge a minor "POC" with a crime, the gangs caught onto that pretty quick and started recruiting highschoolers to run their drugs for them. Seriously, these fucking libtards could fuck up a wet dream.

As an aside, still no investigation on how/why a teacher described the shooter as being dressed in full body armor and helmet, none of which were recovered, while Cruz sauntered out of school in the same maroon tshirt he wore in the uber taxi with his backpack.
