No, this isn’t satire. George Washington University students were asked to sign a petition to ban “oppressive” white figures in crosswalk signage. They happily complied.
Ethan Cai, of Campus Reform, visited the college in Washington, D.C. and asked the students to make the change to the “oppressive” LED signs, and many thought it was a great idea.
The petition read…
“As we students cross the street we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is OK to cross. Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.”
In fact, the petition had almost unanimous consent, with only one student opposing the sign. One educator even signed the petition.

The notion that a white figure at a crosswalk is “oppressive” is a notion of Critical Race Theory called a “micro-aggression.”
A microaggression is a non-verbal and unintentional sign of systemic racism that members of minority identity groups can perceive, but the rest of us cannot. Critical Race Theory says we have to take their word for how the microaggression makes them feel, and make our decisions according to their subjective impressions of the perceived microaggression.
