A private school in Rhode Island has excluded white children from an event, allowing only those who “identify as a student of color or multiracial” to attend.
The Wheeler School in Providence, Rhode Island, excluded white students from attending the guest speaker event.
“In a February 7, 2022, email to sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, the school invited only non-white students to attend a ‘Students of Color affinity group’ speaking event with actress and author Karyn Parsons, who is best known for her role as Hilary Banks in NBC’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” reports Breitbart News.
“‘Affinity group’ is a pet name used by critical race theorists and other leftists typically for racial segregation. The term is also used for other forms of segregation based on ‘common identity characteristics,’ as it places paramount importance on those attributes in order to justify excluding those with different characteristics from participating in activities,” reported Breitbart News.
“According to parents and students at the Wheeler School, who reported their experience to Parents Defending Education, ‘white students at the middle school level were not allowed to attend.’ At lower grade levels, the racial segregation was reportedly not observed,” reports Breitbart News.
I visited Wheeler School 4 BHM & spoke w/3 different, completely diverse groups of students. The 4th was a Students of Color Affinity Group. Any child in the classes I presented to wld have had the chance to meet me regardless of race. I cherish all my fans. Of every color.

“It’s truly astonishing that in 2022, schools consider it acceptable behavior to exclude students on the basis of their skin color,” said PDE President and Founder Nicole Neily. “It’s immoral, and something that prospective families, current families, and alumni should know — so that they can redirect their applications, tuition, and donations elsewhere.”
