Black Lives Matter advocates have protested, rioted and marched over claims of racial division and racial injustice.
Now they’re segregating themselves. At the demands of black students, universities across the nation are holding segregated back-to-school activities, being touted as “safe spaces” for black students, to make them feel comfortable and involved in their schools.
The College Fix reported on several universities holding the “blacks-only” events. It is up to anyone’s imagination as to what would happen if “whites-only” events and dorms were advertised.
California State University Fresno recently held a three-day student retreat for black students, for example. The $16,000 undertaking in August included a trip to a water park, skits, and talks of encouragement from professors and peers.
It was hosted so that “new and continuing African-American students, along with African-American faculty, staff and alumni, could exchange ideas of how to create a greater sense of belonging on campus,” according to Fresno State President Joseph Castro.
George Mason University also recently hosted a “Black Freshman Orientation” that sought to “introduce the incoming freshman class to George Mason from the perspective of Black students,” according to a description of the event on the school’s website.
“We feel that it is important to begin cultivating community and building traditions early in the school year so that the foundation can be built upon as the year progresses,” the website stated.
At the University of Wisconsin Madison on Sept. 11 there was a “Students of Color Welcome BBQ.” The invite stated that while all students are welcome, the event was “intended for self-identified people of color.”
Also, the San Francisco State University is creating an entire floor of “Afro-themed” dorms that will be dedicated strictly to African American students, so they can “safely live and talk about issues affecting African Americans.”
