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.”

Tut tut.

Jesus said, "Thou shalt not be a Racist!"

(It's gotta be in there somewhere, surely?. Oh Horror! Was Jesus a Racist? I mean he didn't Rabbit on all his life about Rascism like our moral superiors do.)

This casts some doubt on either A).Jesus' moral standing or

B).Or Rascism is a faux sin.

Choose, monotheists.

It used to be discrimination based upon skin color in an institution receiving federal funds was illegal but concern for such trivialities as legality went out the window with Affirmative Action. 

If they really believe 'the Nazis' or the Klan are out to get them isn't having a 'No Whites' day like printing them an invitation with the best day to attack? Even if you take them at their word they're not the brightest bulbs.

Evergreen is getting exactly what it deserves. They are supporting the multi-culturalism marxist nonsense, and what did they really expect? That the brightest students would be banging at their doors to get admitted? 

I remember last year one of the young women could barely read; had to have another lady help her. Amazingly she didn't seem embarrassed at all. Very ignorant people.

Weinstein is a Jew and Jews will find out that in the end, POC will look at them as only another White....not the special class that Jews think they are entitled to.

I am getting so fucking tired of the racist propaganda and constant marxist programming.  Time for Trump to declare Marxism un-american and some legislation to deny funding to these institutions AS WELL AS scrub it from their curricula.

The only use that the Marxist-Leninists of Evergreeen State have for white people is to pay taxes so that these "students" can continue to live in a rarefied left wing paradise of slovenly sloth, vicious invective and general layabout indolence.

Let Everrgreen rot unto itself. Enrollment is ranked and those entering are the Idiocracy. 

Wall up Evergreen and forget about them. Dumbass ants racing round and round in circles. 

MORONS.

Idiot cucks still blow hundreds of thousands of Monopoly bucks sending their daughters to these Marxist indoctrination camps. 

These girls learn how to become sluts in college, thanks to their socialist professors. 

I bang these whores. Bad investment dad.

I'm confused if this includes the white NAACP leader who said she was black or Tiffany haddish who told the US census she's a white girl.

"Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost
inexpressible.
It is Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world
to itself.
Other races feel like subjects of Western power long after colonialism,
imperialism, and slavery have disappeared.
The charge of racism puzzles Whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled
good will, because they don't grasp what it really means: humiliation.
The White man presents an image of superiority even when he isn't conscious
of it.

And superiority excites envy.

Destroying White civilization is the innermost desire of the league of
designated victims we call 'minorities.'"

Students and politicians, all gathered together in the same insidious place. Maybe finally they will discover the true location of Utopia, whose address has always been nowhere. Or maybe the fault will move again like it did in 2001, and they can experience the joys of being buried alive in rubble. All valid educational experiences for those who have no clue and aren't likely to find them in college.

Someone should build a huge 20km-wide bulldozer and just scrape Evergreen College off the earth and into the nearest body of water. Probably the cheapest solution.
