(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – A New York State school district has issued an apology for employing “exclusionary language” while promoting an event for “students of color” following the accusations by an anti-affirmative action group that claimed that the school was segregating the students. 

The Ithaca City School District (ICSD) has been promoting on campus the Students of Color Summit 2024 which is meant to be an event for students of color who attend the school and are between grades 6 and 12. However, nonprofit the Equal Protection Project (EPP), which stands against all forms of racial discrimination wrote a letter to Board of Education President Dr. Sean Eversley Bradwell and Superintendent Dr. Luvelle Brown opposing the event. 

Fox News Digital obtained a copy of the letter, which included an image of a poster that had been used for the promotion of the event. In the poster, it was explicitly stated that “students of color” were invited. In the letter, it was also alleged that staffers in the school had received an email instructing them that the event was exclusively for students of color and would provide a platform for them to interact with one another and that “allies” were explicitly not invited. 

In the letter, it was argued that they understand that the word “allies” in this case is intended to mean staff and White students. It adds that the message proceeds to state that staff members of color who are interested in attending the event could send an email, pointing out that this means that they intended on just excluding those who are White.
