Brown University will soon offer a course on the “whitelash” that supposedly caused President Trump’s election as part of its pre-college program for high-schoolers.

The course, titled “Resistance to Racial Equality from the Civil War to Donald Trump,” will examine the racial elements of Trump’s election, which it calls a “whitelash,” meaning a “staunch white resistance to, and even revenge against, racial equity.”

It is one of hundreds of courses offered during Brown’s annual “Summer@Brown” program, which offers prospective students a three-week on-campus experience at the price of $5,966 for residential students and $4,214 for commuters.
