As part of Michigan State University’s upcoming Spring Conference on Teaching, Learning and Student Success, officials will segregate participants based on their skin color to facilitate “affinity group” conversations, according to an email invitation to the event that states “There will be an affinity group for white folx and an affinity group for people of color.”
The university states the needs for such racial segregation by noting it will “advance racial equity,” adding “there is work for white people and people of color to do separately and together.”
“For white people, an affinity group provides time and space to work explicitly and intentionally on understanding white culture and white privilege and to increase one’s critical analysis around these concepts,” the invitation states.
“For people of color, a caucus is a place to work with peers to address the impact of racism, to interrupt experiences of internalized racism, and to create a space for healing and working for individual and collective liberation,” it states.
