College VP: MLK session ‘for whites’ meant to be provocative

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Concordia College in Moorhead is defending a Martin Luther King Jr. Day session titled “How to embrace your inner racist: A session for white people.”

An online description says “attendees will be able to recognize and acknowledge that there is a nasty little racist inside them.” The description says the session was intended for “white people only” but people of color would not be stopped from attending.

A Concordia vice president tells KFGO-AM the description was meant to be “a bit provocative” and “a bit edgy,” and the session was designed for students “to ask tough questions of themselves and other people.”
