So what was that Civil Rights movement all about, anyway?
Guess what Cal State Los Angeles has. Well, you’ll never guess, so I’ll tell you: racially segregated student housing!
California State University Los Angeles recently rolled out segregated housing for black students.
The arrangement comes roughly nine months after the university’s Black Student Union issued a set of demands in response to what its members contend are frequent “racist attacks” on campus, such as “racially insensitive remarks” and “microaggressions” by professors and students. One demand was for a “CSLA housing space delegated for Black students.”
“[It] would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students. This space would also serve as a safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other,” the demand letter stated.
Yep, blacks over here, whites over there. Just like the bad old days. And you’ll never guess why the collidge did it, either.
Yep–the Black Students Union–do they have a White Students Union, or would that be racist?–demanded separate housing as the ultimate “safe space” for black students. And why do they need a safe space? Because of all those confounded “microaggressions” out there, of course!
No one says anything about the now-popular game of “knockout,” in which gangs of “black youths” attack and seriously injure defenseless, often elderly, white persons whom they catch alone on the sidewalk.
Cal State LA is the fourth institution of higher learning to provide racially segregated housing for its students, joining UConn, UC Davis, and Berkeley in that elite category.
Yes, Martin Luther King, you are entitled to roll over in your grave.
America’s colleges–where minds, morals, and basic decency go to die.
