‘Woke or KKK’: NYU Hosts Whites-Only ‘Antiracism’ Workshop for Public School Parents

July 12, 2023

New York University hosted a whites-only "anti-racism" workshop for public school parents in New York City, barring minorities from a five-months-long seminar that legal experts say was a brazen violation of civil rights law. Organized by NYU’s Steinhardt School of Education, the workshop was "designed specifically for white public school parents" committed to "becoming anti-racist" and building "multiracial parent communities." The first session of the workshop, which included approximately a dozen parents and ran for two hours, encouraged that sort of hypersensitivity. He touted his participation in the program when he ran for office, saying the whites-only workshop would "enhance" his ability to serve the district. Gross indicated that the workshop began four years ago when she heard from white parents with kids in majority-black schools that they felt like "everyone hates me."
