Woke Seattle University Declares That Whiteboards Are Racist… Because They Are White, Of Course

This, unfortunately, is not a joke and just another example of what’s being taught to our kids in universities around the country.

A ‘woke’ University has declared that whiteboards are “racist” and “perpetuate whiteness” in the classroom.

“Observing Whiteness in Introductory Physics: A Case Study” was published last month in Physical Review Physics Education Research. The study observed three students as they worked to solve a physics problem and specifically monitored how “whiteness” is present in academia.

The study found that whiteboards were problematic due to their racist undertones.

Seattle Pacific University Research Associate Professor of Physics Amy Roberton served as lead author. W. Tali Hairston, director of community organizing, advocacy, and development at Seattle Presbytery, was co-author.

Campusreform.org reports: Hairston told Campus Reform that although whiteboards “are not inherently racist,” the common classroom object can perpetuate racism.

“Whiteboards can be racist like how housing, employment, and the judicial systems were found to contain racist practices,” Hairston stated.

According to the authors, the role of the whiteboard as being the center of attention in classroom learning contributes to its role in student discussion and attention.

“Our findings support other studies that have found the study of physics to include racism and sexism,” Hairston added.

“Whiteboards display written information for public consumption; they draw attention to themselves and in this case support the centering of an abstract representation and the person standing next to it, presenting,” the authors argue in the study. “They collaborate with white organizational culture, where ideas and experiences gain value (become more central) when written down.”

According to this argument, when students use a whiteboard to display work, they are drawing attention to themselves that may portray characteristics of “whiteness.”

University of Arkansas student Whitney Hines, who is currently enrolled in physics courses, told Campus Reform that “science is not meant to be subjective.”

“I do not see how an objective topic can be seen as racist,” Hines added.

Campus Reform contacted Seattle Pacific University and Roberton for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.

student loan forgiveness is recognition that higher ed went off the rails years ago and is no longer functionally competent to educate.

I guess the blackboards we used chalk to write on in school were racist too.
