Are You Attending Brown University’s Racially Segregated Hatefest Against White Homosexuals?


The flyer for the event

Of course, these people never take their irony supplements. They shout louder, to so as not to hear the noise in their minds, or from their opponents.

It looks like Brown is ripe and ready for a hate crime hoax, as soon as spring weather hits, for the marches. At least one will have to target colored queers, because it will have been produced by them.

These people say, "protect me from what I want." There's actually therapy for that.

Upcoming workshop at Brown Univ. set to help queer minorities overcome attraction to queer whites

A group of Brown University students appear to be preparing an on-campus workshop in which “queer” participants will separate by race to work past their sexual attraction to Caucasians.

The "Protect me from what I want" workshop will apparently separate participants by race in order to work past their sexual attraction to Caucasians.

We “find ourselves falling always for the white queers... wishing we could have more agency in the process, be more intentional about who we desire and how,” reads the official Facebook description of the event.

“We are invested in generating a politics of sexuality that compels us to interrogate beauty as privilege and constructed by systems of white supremacy, ableism, capitalism, and heteronormativity,” it continues.

The Facebook page states the event is to take place in the Crystal Room at Brown University on April 8 from 6-7:30 p.m. The workshop called “Protect me from what I want: a workshop on privilege, power, and desire” is sponsored by an organization called the Comprehensive Allyship Network, according to the Facebook event page.

After two artistic performances, participants will apparently be directed to separate between [People of Color] POCs and Caucasians before continuing the discussion.

“We will break into POC and White caucus groups for a part of the workshop to unpack some of our specific experiences of racialized desire,” reads the event description. “This will be an intentional, anti-racist, and feminist space.”

From the Facebook page, it is unclear exactly which student group is hosting the event other than the Comprehensive Allyship Network, which is not listed as an official student organization.

Kelly Garrett, Coordinator of the LGBTQ Center at Brown University, acknowledged the event in an email to Campus Reform, but said did she not have any further details. The Brown University Events department and the Student Activities department told Campus Reform they were unaware of the event.

Students organizing the event, however, appear to attend Brown University and apparently have hosted similar events in the past, such as the Comprehensive Allyship Network. At time of publication, 899 students been invited, 117 had RSVP’d as attending, and 61 had replied “maybe.”

Student organizers did not respond to Campus Reform’s requests for comment in time for publication.

“Nobody is saying anybody needs to be more attracted to any race, it's just an exercise to get bast racialized sexual desires.”

N.S.: You’re lying like a Persian rug!
The exercise is in teaching people to racialize their sexual desires, and forcing themselves to be attracted to black men.

Hoo boy, there's so many things in this that it seems like it could be a parody. So perhaps they'll start up a twelve step self-help program to help them kick their addiction to ......? Maybe they should hit the books; that's what they're in school for in the first place.

I would think a lucky couple that is both homosexual and interracial would be at the top of the totem pole.

Instead, at the intersectionality between LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH and "anti-racism," there's a big car wreck.
