Woke University Declares That Whiteboards Are Racist: “They Are Deeply Problematic’

Fact checked
Left-wing university declares that whiteboards are racist

A ‘woke’ University has declared that whiteboards are “racist” and “perpetuate whiteness” in the classroom.

Yes, really.

“Observing Whiteness in Introductory Physics: A Case Study” was published last month in Physical Review Physics Education Research. The study observed three students as they worked to solve a physics problem and specifically monitored how “whiteness” is present in academia.

The study found that whiteboards were problematic due to their racist undertones.

Seattle Pacific University Research Associate Professor of Physics Amy Roberton served as lead author. W. Tali Hairston, director of community organizing, advocacy, and development at Seattle Presbytery, was co-author. 

Campusreform.org reports: Hairston told Campus Reform that although whiteboards “are not inherently racist,” the common classroom object can perpetuate racism. 

“Whiteboards can be racist like how housing, employment, and the judicial systems were found to contain racist practices,” Hairston stated. 

According to the authors, the role of the whiteboard as being the center of attention in classroom learning contributes to its role in student discussion and attention.

“Our findings support other studies that have found the study of physics to include racism and sexism,” Hairston added.

“Whiteboards display written information for public consumption; they draw attention to themselves and in this case support the centering of an abstract representation and the person standing next to it, presenting,” the authors argue in the study. “They collaborate with white organizational culture, where ideas and experiences gain value (become more central) when written down.”

According to this argument, when students use a whiteboard to display work, they are drawing attention to themselves that may portray characteristics of “whiteness.”

University of Arkansas student Whitney Hines, who is currently enrolled in physics courses, told Campus Reform that “science is not meant to be subjective.” 

“I do not see how an objective topic can be seen as racist,” Hines added. 

Campus Reform contacted Seattle Pacific University and Roberton for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.


  1. Scientifically you will remeber you had blackboards in school until Uni where it was all whiteboards Why? It wasn’t for no reason.

      • We know. The question is why do they swap to whiteboards on uni and the answer lies in the way the brain chemically responds and activates different neural regions in response to light. Different colours trigger different neural pathways. It’s scientific. It’s why they use red green gold and blue together.

  2. “They collaborate with white organizational culture, where ideas and
    experiences gain value (become more central) when written down.”

    So the “study”s author is judging white boards as “deeply problematic” based on her struggle with reality and the corpus of knowledge of what works and what does not work for imparting ideas and reinforcing learning. This communist (“community organizer”) who is actively working to destroy education and replace it with political indoctrination is campaigning against WRITING DOWN IDEAS. She does not want ANY ideas or experiences to “gain value,” so she wants to abolish all means of writing down information.

    It’s easy to see the underlying goal – with nothing written down, there’s no accountability for what material was or was not covered in the classroom.

    • Basically white instituons rule academia Its that simole. Ever since Rome burned the Alexander Library which was the greatest repository of knowledge on earth at the time. And even Napoleon deliberately had the African nose blown off the Sphinx. Racism is fundamental to imperialism.
