These days — not wholly dissimilar to seventy years ago — segregation is all the rage.
And at Wisconsin’s Madison Public Library, they’re keeping things contemporary.
Therefore, the library’s offering an elderly Movement & Meditation class with a ban on white people.
Sessions will take place in May at Goodman South Madison Library or Meadowridge Library, per an announcement online.
Here’s what the nonwhites will enjoy:
Movement & Meditation is a movement class where elements of mindfulness and movement intersect for one hour! … Adaptable movements will be shared for all abilities. … Notebooks and writing materials will be provided. It’s a chance to meet your community and learn more about movement, dance, mindfulness.
The library evidently takes the increasingly popular position that “community” regards those who share a shade of skin.
And as for getting to know one’s “community,” that might include transgender individuals:
We welcome all identities and abilities.
But if you identify as white, it’s a no-go:
BIPOC seniors aged 55+ are eligible to participate in this program. Space is limited, so register to reserve your spot…
The Caucasian-free foray is “presented by KLJ Movement.”
KLJ Movement, a professional dance and performance company, embraces the contributions of people of color in dance.
The end of each class “will include time for reflection and connection.” Might anyone reflect on the idea that segregation is antithetical to much-needed national unity?
It’s doubtfully on the docket.
But at least they’ll be connecting — with the past:

Where racial issues are concerned, if from the ’50s to the ’90s, it can be said that America progressed, regression is now the fashion of the day. And Madison isn’t the only library keeping up:
King County Library System says they have “no racially separated training program.”
The documents and photos are mine. Even the signs were almost exactly the same as the segregation that was practiced in 1950s.

To me, it seems that the country would be well served to unite. Martin Luther King believed the same. However, it seems that his dream is largely abandoned. It is essential that we can live, work, communicate, and find our way together to better America.
But in Madison, Wisconsin — according to a governmental institution — we can’t even dance together.
