University Sponsors Controversial Race Campaign
It started with controversial billboards. Now a public service announcement is making the topic of race an issue in Duluth.
The Un-Fair campaign aims to eliminate racial disparities. Rather than focus on minorities who may not be treated fairly, the campaign is focused on white people. The campaign argues white people have a hard time seeing racism since they enjoy privileges others do not.
Eighteen entities are sponsoring the campaign, including the University of Minnesota Duluth.
The university says a recent campaign-produced video is divisive and has alienated some, though the school still supports the campaign's principles.
