    They say their blatant racial discrimination is part of their “duty” to help the black community.

    A photo on their Twitter page confirms the CPR training is only for black students. York United Black Students’ Alliance is offering the CPR and first aid training “catering to black students only” it reads.

    In a statement issued on its Facebook page, YUBSA blamed “anti-racism” for the outrage over their course. The group explained that, while medical relief is something “that everyone should be able to access”, their services are strictly for the black community, and nothing about their no-whites course is racist.

    “In our efforts to offer this to our black community members, our endeavors are met with resistance and anti-black racism. YUBSA wants to make this very clear: Offering programs such as these to our community members is by no way in any means racist.”

    The group defended their decision to offer the course to the black community only, alluding to York University’s alleged “longstanding history of erasure of black bodies, black students, and black space on this campus”.

    According to the group, it means that they now have a “duty” to only include only black students. “We are chosen to represent the interests of the black students at York from an anti-oppressive framework,” they say. On their Facebook it states that they are an “official non-profit, student-run, Pan-Africanist organization that acts as a representative body on behalf of the Black student population at York University,” which “also operates as agents for social, political, and economic change for the Black community.”

    The group also indicated their outrage on Twitter, declaring that “anti-racism” is the reason for the alarm. YUBSA called for whites to keep their “anti-black racism in check” and for people to “do better”.

    The group issued another statement claiming “whites are not a marginalized group” so they do not need their own spaces on campus.

    YUBSA encouraged whites to submit human rights complaints against them so that they may “collect” such complaints to keep track of all the “anti-black racism”.

    “It saves us the trouble of having to collect the receipts of your anti-black racism that York continuously fails to acknowledge is ever present on this campus.”
