A steady growth of online groups devoted to White students has triggered a wave of concern from (Toronto’s) Ryerson University administration, and students who worry the groups are fostering “racism“.
Administration is investigating how university policy could apply to the groups, many of which were created by Ryerson students on the networking website Facebook.
Among the user groups are “I’m a White Minority @ a TorontoUniversity” with more than 200 members, and “Equal Rights for Whites” with more than 150.
With posts such as “White people unite” generating uproar and a surge in national media attention, the university is facing a “sensitive and complicated issue” in an electronic age where jurisdiction is unclear, said Julia Hanigsberg, general counsel for Ryerson University.
