Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota held an event on Martin Luther King Jr. Day designed exclusively for white students. 

The event, titled “How to Embrace Your Inner Racist: A Session for White People” was designed to help attendees “recognize and acknowledge that there is a nasty little racist inside them,” according to a description found on the college’s website.  The session also aimed to help students learn  how “the skills of psychological flexibility can help white people recognize and acknowledge their own racist tendencies.” 

“This session is for White people only,” the event description said, adding that “while we won’t stop people of color from attending, they should know that their presence in the room is likely to interfere with the effectiveness of the session.”

The session employed “Acceptance and Commitment Training (or ‘ACT’),” according to the college.
