University announces White Awake safe space for white students
Grace Gottschling Investigative Reporter @Grace_Gotcha Today at 8:52 AM EDT
The new group is now one of four in the universitys Diversity Issues program series.
The announcement has been met with wide criticism from students on social media.
The University of Maryland at College Park announced Friday a new diversity support group to create a safe space for white students to discuss their feelings about interactions with racial and ethnic minorities.
The support group, called White Awake, will help white students who may sometimes feel uncomfortable and confused before, during, or after interactions with racial and ethnic minorities.
This group offers a safe space for White students to explore their experiences, questions, reactions, and feelings, the description explains. Members will support and share feedback with each other as they learn more about themselves and how they can fit into a diverse world.
The description asks students if they want to improve [their] ability to relate to and connect with people different from [themselves] or if they want to become a better ally. The new group is now one of four in the universitys Diversity Issues program series.
The group is being led by Noah Collins, who works for the UMD Counseling Center, and will be held once a week. Collins specializes in group therapy and is interested especially in the areas of racial and cultural awareness, according to his faculty bio.
The safe space has been met with harsh criticism from students on social media.
I am ashamed over the execution of white awake nor do I fully understand its clause. How they can fit into a diverse world?

No different that any other “safe space.”
The world has gone quite mad.
In general, I consider bars, pubs, and taverns to be a ‘safe’ place (unless your wife is mad at you).
Just continuing the LIBERAL RACIAL DIVIDE part of their agenda...Obama and his ilk should be pleased.
“It’s too hot to fish, too hot for golf, and it’s too cold at home.”
I’d like to understand the knock-out game better.
I’d like to understand why I’m not allowed in certain neighborhoods.
I’d like to understand why a large percent of a minority which constitutes a small percent of the population commits more crimes per capita than a large percent of the population.
I’d like to understand why free speech is only free for those who declare my free speech has constraints.
I’d like to understand “hands up, don’t shoot” better.
I’d like to understand why I work for a living and am ineligible for government benefits, but others who live on government benefits are seemingly ineligible for work.
Let me guess: guilt and sadness will be the only emotions allowed. Pride or even apathy will be reported as a thoughtcrime.
And President Trump is divisive!
Is it Honky-U?
Can they use the “n” word in the their safe space?
Get them all together in one place....
In 20 years these snowflakes will be on welfare and the kids who went to tech schools will be running things.
Ever notice how there’s never a safe space for Asian students? That’s because they have one on every campus. It’s called the Library.
It’s also safe because in the history of school shootings, not one has been in a Library, because there are so few targets.
If diversity is a strength, why do we need spaces for each ethnic group to be able to get away from each other in order to feel safe?
The “safe space” for whites sounds more like a re-education center.
Well, since minorites have demonized, ostracized and segregated themselves from white people... it’s seems to me the group has already been formed. All the University has done is given it a name.
actually it isn’t a safe space, it is an indoctrination camp.
