Folks, stupid has pretty much taken over. The students and their leaders in this university are leading us down the path of destruction with their twisted idea of ‘equality’. There is no doubt in my mind that right now every civil rights activist hero, and I’m talking the REAL ones who have earned their stripes with their sacrifice for change, are rolling around in their graves right now.
There is a lot of facepalming going on as they look down on this nation and what her people are now doing. How did things get so twisted? Well, that can be answered in many ways… Obama, ‘tolerance’, Beyonce, horrible parenting, Blacklivesmatter, feminism, oh and did I mention Obama, and Obama, and Obama? You catch my drift…
Well now black students have issued a list of demands to the American University in their response to a racist-banana incident two weeks ago, and it is coming as a SHOCK to many now that the administration has responded with approval for their demands. They have agreed to ALL of them! You’re not going to believe what they are.
One of these demands that is out right ridiculous, is a ban on white people. That is, no white people or students being allowed to use the new “student lounge” for the rest of the spring semester. This new cafe style lounge just opened up about six weeks ago, and it was meant for all students to use for things like slam poetry night, gatherings, and other student initiated programming. However, there was nothing said in its initial introduction about NOT allowing white people to enter and use the facilities it has to offer. Yet, here they are…NOT ALLOWED.
The student activists involved with this sort of reverse segregation said they would take over this space as their own little “sanctuary” because they didn’t feel safe, and a safe space was owed to them.
“This is just the minimum,” Bass told protesters in regards to their demands. He encouraged them that more can be done in terms of the issue of race on campus. “These are reasonable demands. We are interested in building the kind of community which will we are all proud of.”
This isn’t even the worst of it..there is more. Here are the specific demands that were made:
For the remaining of the semester, the cafe would become sanctuary for people of color. ONLY.
So now ALL ‘people of color’ students get an extension and will not be penalized for already scheduled finals after the incident. So what they are telling us is…because they are black, they deserve extensions on their finals???
These approved demands were acknowledged by more than 100 faculty members who then ALSO decided they would agree to sign a “solidarity statement” in support of meeting these demands.
It was reported:
The signatories are “appalled by the racist, white supremacist hate crime” of hanging bananas around campus, and they are committed to “continuing to engage the systemic roots and current effects of racism on campus.”
They said the administration’s embrace of the three demands is “only a small step” toward prioritizing “Black students and other students of color.”
The signatories want the administration “to address their academic needs, their safety, and their overall well being” and prosecute the “perpetrator(s) of this crime to the fullest extent allowed by law” and expel any students who participated. (Only one person is visible on AU’s video surveillance of the banana hangings.)
They asked incoming President Sylvia Burwell, the former secretary of health and human services, to show how she will enforce “no tolerance for anyone creating a hostile environment for students of color” and punish such people.
There truly is no making sense of any of this. As we all know by now, stupid has never promoted logic.
Of course in all this, no one has even thought to ask the white students how they feel about being denied access to areas of the university that they are paying for. They are also not being asked how they feel about having to take their finals on time while black students get an extension because they feel they need to hide out in their “safe spaces”.
This is sickening.
