A “Welcome BBQ” that is intended for “self-identifying people of color” will be hosted next month at the University of Wisconsin-Madison — the same university that had a “racist” boulder removed from campus this summer.
According to a report from The College Fix’s Jackson Walker, flyers posted at UW advertising the event read, “All are welcome, intended for self-identifying people of color.”
The “Welcome BBQ” will reportedly be hosted by the school’s “Center for Cultural Enrichment,” where their stated mission includes “embracing all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender expressions, religions, classes, abilities, or any other aspects of identity we hold,” according to the report.
Walker noted that the event is advertised on campus in several dining hall locations, but, curiously, the BBQ is “not listed on the campus events calendar nor the University Housing events and activities page. In contrast, a ‘Latinx New Student Welcome’ is posted online.”
