Riding the “it’s not racism if it’s directed against whitey” train of thought (if any), a student activist group attending the University of Michigan demanded campus officials to provide them with, let me quote:
a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.
It’s becoming increasingly obvious that universities are becoming radical left-wing training camps for political activism and social justice warriors rather than institutions dedicated to higher learning.
However, this demand which is just the latest from the several lodged by the group called Students4Justice is basically asking for segregation, i.e. dedicated spaces for black students where whites are not allowed. Just figure a white group of students demanding the same, just picture the nationwide outrage.
The riots and looting would start in 30 seconds flat and the University of Michigan would be in flames, the mainstream media would go on a “racism” “Nazism” “KKK” rampage and all that. With blacks demanding segregated spaces for “students of color”, there’s no problem, because black people can’t be racist.
Even if the (public) university is currently spending 10 million dollars of taxpayers money for a brand new multicultural center which will be open to all students, regardless of the color of their skin, social justice warriors complain that black students are still marginalized, claiming that a multicultural center is not enough, as they demand a space solely dedicated to social justice work and community organizing specifically for black students.
The demand letter from the leaders of Students4Justice states:
We want documentation of past, current, and future student activism and this should be a permanent space that is staffed, and has resources for students to organize and share resources,”
The Michigan Review, which is an independent student news outlet was the first to break the news as they wrote:
The same organization that criticizes the University for failing to create ‘an environment that engages in diversity, equity and inclusion,’ is calling upon the University to undermine these ideals by facilitating a sort of de facto segregation? One where space and resources are designated for students based solely on the color of their skin?
To advocate for the ideals of diversity, equity and inclusion, while simultaneously calling upon the University to sanction these spaces on campus is both unprincipled and laughably regressive.
What will be next, blacks only drinking fountains and restrooms?
