Taking a “Break from White People”!?!?

Vice is currently airing a documentary about a specialized retreat where white folk are not allowed. This throwback o segregation is being billed as a retreat for women of color to get away from whiteness and white people. In fact, there are more than a dozen of these segregated resorts operating today.

“Women of Color Healing Retreat”  founded by Andrea X, is part o a growing movement in resorts that “helps” people who “needed a break–from white people.”

Could this actually just be a racist business opportunity started by a hateful bigot? In Andrea’s own words:

“I have no tips for a white person” she said. “My tip to white people is to let us have our space, let us have our room, and go hang out with other white people. We’re okay. You know, you’ve done enough damage.”

She even suggests that White people shouldn’t have passports.

She (and the attendees) blame the current political climate for needing to be away from whites, but the fact that she started the enterprise in 2014 under the presidency of Barrack Obama perhaps gives us a signal that this was always a race problem she had.

Where is the outrage from the left on this? Nowhere. Apparently, segregation is fine by them as long as it only singles out white people. Could you imagine if there were a white only resort where Black folk are “banned?”
