    Black students demand segregated spaces from white students


    Alec Dent - UNC Chapel Hill •January 6, 2016


    Segregated ‘safe spaces’
    Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers, calling for “safe spaces” on campuses meant only for so-called students of color.
    The requests for segregated spaces are found among some of the demand lists put forth by students who took part in protests this fall alleging their campuses are oppressive, discriminatory, and represent institutionalized racism.

    At UCLA, the Afrikan Student Union is insisting upon an “Afrikan Diaspora floor” as well as an “Afro-house.”

    Segregation Is Back, and It’s Coming From the Left


    Integration used to be a major goal of the civil rights movement. But today, in many places, resegregation is the growing trend—particularly on college campuses. A new National Association of Scholars report finds that 7 out of 10 colleges surveyed are having separate graduations for those of certain racial or ethnic backgrounds.

      Universities have been providing segregated living quarters for blacks (who are the ones demanding them) for awhile

      Source: Demands for Segregated Housing at Williams College Are Not News


      It is disturbingly common for American colleges, public and private, to offer segregated dorms, graduation ceremonies, and events.

      Like Doc Brown’s Delorean in Back to the Future, many college campuses are racing back to the year 1955. On April 17, a student newspaper at Williams College endorsed "affinity housing" for black students and other minorities — which is to say, it endorsed segregation. The students claim segregation will make Williams a "more welcoming, supportive and safe community for minoritized students."

      The newspaper’s endorsement received a lot of media coverage, but it was not really news. We at the National Association of Scholars (NAS) recently launched Separate but Equal, Again: Neo-Segregation in American Higher Education, a project examining racial segregation on college campuses such as Columbia University, Yale University, MIT, and others. Surveying 173 schools, we found that 42 percent offer segregated residences, 46 percent offer segregated orientation programs, and 72 percent host segregated graduation ceremonies. We call this "neo-segregation": the voluntary and institutionally sanctioned segregation of minority students in the post–Brown v. Board era.

      Source: Racial Segregation On American Campuses: A Widespread Phenomenon


      The National Association of Scholars, a group of mostly academics interested in higher education, issues only a few research reports annually, but what they lack in quantity they make up in quality; their studies are extremely carefully done, with well documented research. A young NAS employee, Dion Pierre, has been researching the segregation of students on college campuses by race ---special commencement exercises for African-American students, living and recreational facilities segregated by race, black student unions, and so forth. These practices have existed for decades on some campuses and rather than fading as racial prejudices decline (witness rapidly increasing interracial marriages), they are flourishing. The Pierre study, mostly completed, should be released around Martin Luther King Day in early 2019.

      All is this is terribly ironic. In 1954, in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, the U.S. Supreme Court effectively outlawed racial segregation in our schools. Angry whites, especially in the South, fought the attempt to integrate schools, often leading to violent protests, such as when James Meredith became the first black to enter the University of Mississippi in 1962. Civil rights leaders put their lives on the line working for a color-blind, non-race determined society, most memorably King when he articulated his dream where people "will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." The bitter struggle to break down racial distinctions in education lasted for decades, yet now universities are reintroducing segregation, making race the primary determinant of student participation in some activities, such as black student unions or race-based housing facilities.

      College administrators facilitate this by constantly harping on race. They hire "diversity" coordinators in large numbers to check on the racial complexion of students, faculty, other staff and even contractors. If diversity has any educational virtue, it is in the notion that individuals will intermix with others with different traits--perhaps students coming from another area of the world, or having a different sexual orientation, socioeconomic background--or skin color. The idea is people become more tolerant, more understanding of alternative perspectives when they are exposed to individuals markedly different from themselves. Yet having all-black dorms or recreational areas is anti-diversity. In an Orwellian twist, the diversity coordinators are stifling interaction between people of different races. A news report says the new diversity czar at my university, Ohio University, is wanting to create a workout room in the campus recreational center open only for minority students--white students, who pay student activity fees to support the center, would be excluded.

      Source: New York University moves to implement racial segregation in student dorms


      Since late June, the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services at New York University (NYU) has been working closely with a small, student-led task force to make racially segregated housing a reality in undergraduate student dorms.

      On July 20, Washington Square News, the weekly undergraduate student newspaper of NYU, published an article titled "Student-Led Task Force Calls for Black Housing on Campus," in which it reported on the university’s willingness to help implement residential communities open solely to "Black-identifying students with Black Resident Assistants." Since then, the university has officially given the project a green light, aiming to have NYU’s first segregated residential floor established by Fall 2021.

      A little over two months ago, a recently organized advocacy group called Black Violets created an online petition demanding that the university "implement Black student housing on campus in the vein of themed engagement floors across first-year and upperclassmen residence halls." In its petition, the group argues that "Too often in the classroom and in residential life, black students bear the brunt of educating their uninformed peers about racism." African American students, the group states, desperately require a "safe space" where they can escape from students, staff and faculty of other races.

      The article rejects the concept stating

      Source: ibid

      There is nothing progressive about the establishment of racially segregated housing at NYU. It is irrelevant whether the segregation being implemented is voluntary or mandatory. Racial segregation, in all forms, is entirely reactionary.

      The vile argument advanced in the proposal is that all non-African American students, staff and faculty are, to varying degrees, hostile and dangerous to African American students. Their animosity stems from an inherent antipathy towards individuals of different races. Therefore, to end discrimination and ensure true equality within the university, African Americans must completely separate themselves from the rest of the community and "train" non-African Americans to overcome their intrinsic racism.

        Today's liberals are a parody of what yesterday's liberals fought so hard against.

        Liberals used to be FOR free speech but now want to censor anyone that disagrees with them. Liberals used to be for eliminating racism and segregation, but today's liberals are constantly acting racist, see racism everywhere, and want segregation. Liberals used to be anti-violence, today's liberals are all about punching Nazis, rioting and looting.

              Coca-Cola slammed for diversity training that urged workers to be ‘less white’

              Coca-Cola employees were urged to be “less white” as part of the company’s alleged diversity training — but the material was yanked offline following a viral whistleblower post.

              The “Confronting Racism” course in question was offered by LinkedIn Education and allegedly utilized by the soft-drink titan.

              “In the U.S. and other Western nations, white people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white,” reads one of the slides, allegedly sent from an “internal whistleblower” and posted on Twitter by YouTube commentator Karlyn Borysenko.

              Another slide suggests “try to be less white” with tips including “be less oppressive,” “listen,” “believe” and “break with white solidarity.”

                      I remember when we visited the Coca Cola (visitor center?) in Atlanta, I was looking at that big polar bear from across the room, and some kid walked in front of him to take a picture.
                      All of a sudden, that polar bear stood up and the kid threw his camera in the air and ran.

                      I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
