A number of “Dear White People” signs were posted on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, Thursday that decry and criticize white people.
Spotted on @NCState campus today. I’m no expert, but trying to end racism with pure hate and racism doesn’t seem like a good idea… pic.twitter.com/9BeaXMreog

One read, “Dear White People… Black people can’t be racist. Prejudice [sic], yes, but not racist. Racism describes a system of disadvantage based on race. Black people can’t be racist since we don’t stand to benefit from such a system.”
Others read, “Dear White People… There is no such thing as ‘colorblind.’ You are perpetuation racism and white supremacy.”
The sign postings were a project by the school’s Union Activities Board for “Diversity Education Week.” A “special message” from the group’s president noted that the signs were quotations from the 2014 movie “Dear White People.”
