Hamilton College segregates diversity program by race

Hamilton College segregates diversity program by race

“this program is open to people of color only.” (UPDATE – program canceled after this reporting.)

My alma mater, Hamilton College, has become a hotbed of multi-cultural activism to the extent that Western Civilization has been driven off campus.

A reader and Hamilton alum posted a tip in the Tip Line about the latest fiasco, a diversity program segregated by race.

Via a Facebook post by recently retired Hamilton Professor Ted Eismeier, the diversity program is called Real Talk: A Dialogue about Internalized Racism:

Hamilton College Real Talk Brochure

The brochure indicates there will be three sessions, one for people “of color,” one for “whites,” and one jointly.  It does not indicate how these categories are defined.

The brochure is hard to read, so here’s the calendar announcement highlighted:

“In order to create a safe space, this program is open to people of color only.  A similar conversation for white students, faculty and staff is planned for the spring semester.”

Hamilton College Real Talk Program - Highlighted

Eismeier, in his Facebook post, describes it as “separate but equal” discussions:

Hamilton Real Talk - Eismeier FB post

That does seem to be an apt characterization.  Hamilton Professor Robert Paquette, co-founder of the Alexander Hamilton Institute, provided the following comment:

Hmm, Hamilton College’s Director of “Diversity and Inclusion” using College funds to host an event on campus segregated by “color.” Orwell would have understood.

I reached out to the head of the multi-cultural center, which houses the Womyn’s Center and a variety of diversity programs, with the following questions:

“Can you tell my why Hamilton has segregated the discussions by race, and whether the College believes such a segregation is consistent with Hamilton’s diversity goals.”

I probably also should have asked why students “of color” need a “safe space” on a campus like Hamilton, which is teeming with diversity initiatives (except for conservatives).  I have not yet heard back, but will print Hamilton’s response if and when received.

I take it they don’t see the irony of segregating diversity discussion by race.

Hey! I’m a color.

According to physics, white is ALLL colors.

Besides, as my children taught me, I’m kind of Peach, according to the gods of Crayola.

    When I was a kid there was a Crayola color called “Flesh.” Of course, it was kind of peach colored and obviously racist. Much like in Stalin’s Soviet Union, the color was quietly “disappeared.”

    I don’t know about you but I am a person of many colors, especially in the summer time. I have one color on my face and arms, another for my back, yet another for my legs, and yet another for an area that rarely sees sunlight.

Will they have separate water fountains?

We especially have “anti-discrimination” laws with teeth in them. I’d bet Hamilton College could lose FEDERAL FUNDS over this “mishigas.”

Where is this kind of sh…stuff…going to end up?

Will these people end up in a insane asylum, when their heads implode from the constant clash of reality with their progressive fantasy world?

i.e. “Whites need not apply.” Reverse racism at its finest.

    I will be surprised if the session for whites that’s supposed to occur during spring semester will materialize. Second, if it does materialize, I’d be shocked if it’s not protested by “students of color” who will likely have forgotten by then that they had their own session six months earlier.

    But my bet is that they’ll conjure a reason to cancel the spring session, thus denying white students any voice at all.

    What a colossal load of bullshit.

It all depends on the definition of “diversity”. It also depends on the context in which the word “diversity” is used.

Given some situations “diversity” can mean something like, “I need to change the oil in my car.” In other situations “diversity” can be closely linked to various laundry detergents.

When conservatives insist that words have meaning and that there needs to be a consistent use of those words in order to communicate, they are exploiting the inherent notion of rain delayed soccer matches, white privilege and the surface tension of liquids.

None of this is surprising in a hetronormalpatriarchial oppressive culture.

Isn’t Hamilton walking into a Tsunami with that decision?

SCOTUS isn’t taking too kindly to Affirmative Action discrimination these days.

I wonder if Johannesburg used to make that argument. “We segregate to ‘protect’ them.”

Ugh. These pie-holes are unbelievably racist, and they don’t even see it.

Hmmm…..The brochure says “Contact A Taneja for more information at: [email protected]

interesting. Perhaps an alum could look into that.

20 years ago when I was in college, and this instanity was gaining traction, those who could discern obvious trends were saying this is EXACTLY where this was headed.

At the time, same as today, those who wanted it were calling us insane, “the fringe”, and racist.

It’s the natural progression of race politics, of the grievence industry (and it IS an industry), and what has been done over and over in times past: divide all the groups, balkanize them, and keep them divided along [color / gender / religious / etc] lines and make the answer : go and seek help from a gov’t, and give them power and money while doing it.

It never, ever ends well.

My son has a black mother (my wife) and a white father (me). So which of the three sessions should he attend?

Will it depend upon how he self-identifies on a given day? Does someone in an official capacity (say: Jesse Jackson) come around and declare him black (or white)?

If they cannot decide what color my son is, will he be barred from all three sessions? Or will my son have to try to split the difference and stand in the doorway with one foot in and one foot out? And which half is in and which half is out?

Of course, I could say that segregating people by race is wrong. But that probably makes me a racist or something.

Maybe I should just state the obvious: people like Ted Eismeier are evil. These monsters are determined to start a race war in which my son gets it from both sides. Hitler would have been proud of Ted, since the retired professor is opposed to the Shameless Mixing of the Races.

(Obviously I am seriously pissed by the race hustlers.)

    I think I overreacted and behaved badly. Now that I have cooled off a bit and read more closely, is not clear if Ted Eismeier is the one who dreamed up this horror. If so, I deeply apologize.

    May I please edit that for you?

    “So which of the three sessions should he attend?”
    (a) Hamilton College (Tuition $46,000/yr. USNWR Rank #14 Nat’l Lib Arts.)
    (b) Harvard University (Tuition $42,300. USNWR Rank #2 Nat’l Univ. with strong everything.)
    (c) Harvey Mudd College (Tuition $46,500. USNWR Rank #16 Nat’l Lib Arts, with strong science + engineering.)

Will they have special sessions for blacks lighter and darker than a brown paper bag, too?

You wouldn’t think the stupid smart enough to form academic cults.

As all liberal social movements eventually are, ‘diversity’ is being hijacked for something quite different.

It’s intellectual busing, obtusely driving in reverse on the wrong side of history into the oncoming traffic that’s headed towards American ideals.

Just another trendy idiot who believes the USA is better off tribal! That’s the business of the day – societal fracking. It sells more of everything. Race, gay rights, immigration, non-religious all now have their own territories of media. Just think of all the profits that have been generated by breaking apart the ‘United’ States. However these aspirations and desires breed extremisms. As always people find it hard to have some self control. And this Hamilton fool is one prime example.

Well, how are they supposed to keep the racial grievance industry alive if they don’t pick at constantly, like when one picks at a scab?

As I remind my kids: if you keep on picking at that scab, it’ll never heal. Leave it alone.

The ones who are most obsessed about racism are the progressives, who see a racist lurking behind every bush.

Imagine the idiots who are parents who pay for this?

I think to protest the segregation, the conservative white students should show up to the spring session in white face (clown white). And please, no black face. I am serious.

It works on many levels.

First, it becomes a vicious trap for the school. What can they say?

Second. The students would be making fun of their own race, so it can’t be racism.

Third. As a protest, they are quietly making fun of the segregation by saying they want to make sure they are white enough to qualify for the spring session by passively pointing out that no actual person is really white.

Fourth. As they walk through the campus, it ought to shame those “people of color” for not standing up to the segregation and telling them that they now are guilty of the sin of racism.

Oh, and for emphasis, they should also wear t-shirts that have an image of a saltine cracker front and back.

    How about they organize a protest is against racism. Singing we shall overcome etc. just like King. Signs declaring the administration and organizers as members of the KKK. Invite the news media for some excitement.

    Maybe they could hire a lawyer for a class action lawsuit. I am sure that the ACLU would provide a lawyer.

I guess they could entitle the program Fifty Shades of Brown.

The only people practicing the “one drop” rule these days are Liberal/Progressive/Democrats/Federal Government.

That should tell you everything you want to know about them.

Me, I’m kind of pinkish beige.

I’ve never been white in my life and I won’t ever be until I’m dead.

No “anti-racists” say a 100% Black area needs more diversity.
No “anti-racists” say a 100% Asian area needs more diversity.

No “anti-racists” say a 100% Muslim area needs more diversity.

According to “anti-racists”, they are already 100% diverse.

They say ALL & ONLY White area need to be more diverse, and that White areas only stop needing to be more diverse when there are no White people left in them.

Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country and ONLY into Black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane Black man to notice this and what kind of psycho Black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

[…] There will also be a joint session involving both “people of color” and white people at some future time, notes Legal Insurrection, the website that broke the story. […]
