Unfair Campaign Whites: Anti-Racism Group Fight White Privilege With ‘Unfair’ Messages on White Faces
Not surprisingly, the Un-Fair Campaign was met with harsh criticism from many of Duluth’s residents who felt that the campaign and their messages were “offensive” and unfairly blaming them for all of society’s racism.
Critics also said that the University is not only the sole sponsor of the campaign but that they are teaching these controversial messages to students to which the University responded:
Some misleading reports about this campaign have suggested UW-Superior is the sole sponsor. In fact, the campus is part of a coalition of 16 third-party community sponsors. That coalition includes a wide range of education, civic, religious, and service organizations. Other media accounts have implied that the UW-Superior used its classrooms and faculty to formally instruct students about the campaign. That too is false.
Undeterred, the Un-Fair Campaign says that they will continue to get their anti-racial favoritism message out there with their newest campaign, “Racism: Ignore It And It Won’t Go Away.”
