Title: ‘Snowflake Students’ Force University to Apologize for Saying Snow is ‘White’

(RT) University College London was forced to apologize after a “dreaming of a white campus” tweet was deemed racist by “snowflake students.” The tweet had been intended to let students know the campus was still open as some parts of Britain remained covered by 13 inches of snow.

The tweet said: “Dreaming of a white campus? Our campuses will be open and operating fully today, Monday 11 December, so please make your way in as planned. (We can’t guarantee snow but we’ll try!) #snowday #londonsnow.”

One twitter user replied: “You know who else dreamt of a white campus? Hitler, that’s who. Disgusting.” Kumail Jaffer, a PPE student at Warwick University urged UCL to “retract and apologize.” He added that if anyone does not understand why the comment is offensive, they should “look into the history of the oppression of the PoC [People of Color],” according to the Telegraph.

UCL quickly apologized for the tweet, saying it “chose our words very poorly … We’re sorry and we’ll choose out words more carefully in the future.” The university explained it had been referring to the song ‘White Christmas,’ and posted a link to a YouTube video of the 1942 song, which was written by Irving Berlin.

The university’s response, however, caused even more uproar online, with hundreds of replies blasting their apology. Many felt it was unnecessary, claiming the university was “crumbling” under pressure from “snowflake” students.

Jennie Powell wrote on Twitter: “You really are absurd … how can anyone be offended by the fact that snow is white? Nobody can change that, get a grip.” Stefan Roy added: “Seriously why are you pandering to such nonsense? They’re clearly trying to find offense when there’s none there … And you apologizing just makes it worse.”

Another tweeted: “It’s absolutely barmy that you feel the need to apologize for referencing a song about snow at Christmas when there was, errr, snow at Christmas. In a world full of real problems, why the hell is this an issue?” Another said: “Oh ffs. Stop crumbling to pressure by permanent offendotrons.”

One Twitter user wrote: “The little liberal snowflakes need to stop making everything racist and getting offended easily. Put your big boy and big girls pants on and learn to act like adults!” Another user said: “How desperately unhealthy does your mind need to be to attempt to shoehorn racism into a lyric about snow? How do these people get their socks on in the morning?”

Earlier this week, Oxford Brookes University was criticized for closing its buildings due to “heavy snow,” with students arguing that they need access to libraries to study.

This is the kind of crap you can expect to happen when you continue to import 3rd world trash to the point where you even have a Muslim mayor of your capital city.

Is there any wonder that leftists find Islam so attractive when they both greatly admire mind control and a strong government to keep the sheeple in line?

BTW,the white trash that lust after a dark master to ease their personal guilt problems are even trashier than the 3rd world trash they insist we import.

The 3rd World Trash don't know any better because they grew up in religious police states. Their western followers have no such excuse. They just want masters because freedom and making their own decisions scares the hell out of them.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

What's really fascinating that in stories like this one, the whining snowflakes are predominantly white.

There is a certain percentage of any population group you can mention that feels the NEED to be guilty about something,and to long for punishment.

If this weren't true there would be no such thing as organized religions.

The major difference between Christianity and Islam is that the white followers of Christ finally got fed up with being victims of their own faith,and reigned in the Catholic Church and sent a message to the Protestant Churches in the process.

The goobers that follow Mohammed are natural slaves and they not only have no interest in living free,but it scares the hell out of them.

They didn't force the University to do anything. The University staff volunteered to apologize.

I think the irony of it is that these white people who are apologizing are arguably themselves practicing racism.

It works like this:

When white people apologize to black people on behalf of whites, it's because whites are perceived to have taken advantage of black people in some way (Obviously with American slavery that was the case, but of course no one alive today, white or black, experienced that). And the elephant in the room is the implication in the apology that whites can easily take advantage of blacks, which could only happen if whites were somehow superior to blacks.

So yes, when snowflakes (oops that's racist, right?) come out to coddle blacks because they are not being treated like a 1 year old in a high chair, they are enabling and promoting the idea that blacks, because they are black, are mentally incapable of competing with whites in modern America, and so they simply NEED to be treated as being an incapable race.

It doesn't get more racist than that.

You treat all people like adults, and treat them the same way. You encourage everyone to excel to their fullest ability, which is always more than whatever one's current ability is.

It seems to me that the University had no reason to apologize. Then a few overly sensitive teen-agers cried "racist".

No "seems to me" about it. They had nothing whatsoever to apologize for, except perhaps the intelligence and academic quality of their student body.
