According to a report from the National Pulse, American colleges are planning on segregating their classrooms in order to fight racial inequality on college campuses. Maybe someone should tell them that this was already attempted in schools and it was called Jim Crow laws.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) is awarding grants to 10 schools to have segregated dinners based off of certain racial issues.
Brown University is one of these schools, and will receive $30,000 to use over the next three years to “tackle racial issues and work toward racial healing.” The AAC&U is in partnership with the left-wing W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Newman’s Own Foundation.
The Ivy League school will begin offering two segregated dinner discussion groups, one for black students and one for Muslim women.
According to AAC&U’s websiter, the grant must be used too:
- create a positive narrative about race in the community
- promote racial healing activities on campus and in the community
- erase structural barriers to equal treatment and opportunity within the economic, legal, educational, and residential components of the community
Of course the organization nor the school like to say it is segregation, and instead like to cover it up by saying it is “racial reconciliation.”
This is just one in a long line of other examples that liberal colleges and universities have been implementing in order to reconcile “racial reconciliation, as laid out by the National Pulse:
“Last September, California State University Los Angeles introduced its segregated housing initiative to offer a “housing space delegated for Black students.”
In February, students at the University of Michigan demanded a permanent no-whites-allowed space in the center of campus for black students and other students of color only.
In May, The American University in Washington, D.C., gave persons of color an extension on their final exams following an alleged racially motivated vandalism incident.
Also in May, Harvard University made the news for holding its first ever blacks-only graduation ceremony.
In June, Evergreen College in Washington state was forced to shut down its campus multiple times due to safety concerns stemming from student activists ordering all whites off campus for a ‘Day of Absence.'”
There is something that all of these events do share though, and that is “No whites allowed.” While these events may not seem as bad as acts of segregation in the past, it would be remiss to not notice similarities to what is happening on college campuses today and examples from the past.
It seems ironic that a place that claims to support diversity is purposely excluding a very specific group from the conversation in order to reconcile race relations.
Any act of segregation should not be allowed in current day classrooms, whether they be on a liberal college campus or not. Segregation is counterproductive to the goal of unity and if allowed to continue, they will on further disunity in America.
