Diversity Council’s White Supremacy Awareness Campaign Flops, Offends Fellow Students

Instead of its intended effect of creating constructive, inclusive dialogue, the recent effort to criticize white supremacy and racism at Gustavus Adolphus College fell flat on its face:

Many students and others at Gustavus Adolphus College were shocked Monday to see posters telling “white Americans” to report anyone who does not have the legal right to be in the United States. “America is a white nation,” said the posters. Students quickly posted images of the posters to social media (at right) and also ripped them down.

It turns out that the posters were the work of a student group at the college, the Diversity Leadership Council.
