Hate messages show up on University of Manitoba campus
cbc.ca ^ | November 2, 2018

Posted on 11/04/2018 2:33:35 PM PST by lowbridge

A University of Manitoba student says hateful messages posted on campus and sent to at least one fax machine add an "element of fear" to being on school grounds.

"I think it's sickening," said Charlene Hallett. "But, on the other side too, I want to roll my eyes and say, "You know what? No, you don't get to try to intimidate us this way.'" 

Sheets of paper with the phrase "It's okay to be white" were taped to walls around the U of M campus this week. Faxes with the same phrase were sent to offices around the campus, including the women's and gender studies program.

Hallett is ​Cree-Métis and is in her fourth year of studies in the family social sciences program. She says while incidents like this this won't change her willingness to speak her mind during class discussions about issues like race, class and sexuality, it makes her wonder if she's going to be targeted.

"Whether I know it or not, somebody could be sitting in that class having these thoughts and having these racist ideas about what Indigenous people are or … just how superior white people are, and I don't know if that's happening or not," said Hallett.

"I don't know what their intentions are in class. I don't know if I'm in harm's way."

'No tolerance for hate and discrimination'

The University of Manitoba is denouncing the posters, which the school president says are part of "a co-ordinated international effort by neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups."

"The university unequivocally condemns this and any other racist actions," David Barnard wrote in a statement sent to media on Friday.

Heck, I was expecting some language that at least had the word "hate" in it.

If it's okay to be ​Cree-Métis, then it is certainly okay to be white as well ...

We need to control what thoughts people have in their heads so everyone feels safe.

I had to laugh when I saw these signs on the news, they were also put up in the Vancouver area (New Westminster).

“It’s okay to be white,” according to some panicked snowflake, was a frightening message that might disturb some non-whites.

Really? How insecure do you need to be for a message that bland to frighten you?

The next level of blandness will be, “All things considered, white is not the absolute worst thing you could be, you could be like dead or not born at all.”

And that would trigger some snowflake in 2030, I suppose.

Come on. The message “it’s okay to be white” is saying something but it’s not a strident call of white supremacy. Anyway, white supremacy in Canada is a bit of a false dawn given our multicultural paradise current composition.

Yes. Same thing as “All Lives Matter” is racist.

So “It’s OK to be white” is “hate”?

What would constitute a “non-hate” expression on this topic? “Kill all whites?”

It’s not a hoax. It’s a movement.

Post “Its OK to be white” and evaluate the responses.

Looks like it worked in this case.

These people need meds. Seriously. I am astounded at the paranoia and delusion in this statement. Esp the use of "international".
