CORRECTION: "Stop White People," is actually a "residential assistant training" session, not a course, meant to create "a more diverse and inclusive environment on campus."
Binghamton University in upstate New York (part of the SUNY system), now offers an R.A. training course called "StopWhitePeople2k16;" the session objective, officially, states:
The premise of this session is to help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within.
Learning about these topics is a good first step, but when encountered with "good" arguments from uneducated people, how do respond? This open discussion will give attendees the tools to do so, and hopefully expand upon what they may already know.
"White activists" on the internet have taken grave offense to the news, believing that the session, in attempting to quell racism, promotes it.
"Stop White People" lol

Imagine if a college was giving a class on how to "Stop Muslims" or "Stop Blacks" https://t.co/JXQCn3AH32

No, Jack Posobiec, that is simply not how it works.
