Students at U. Chicago Demand Racially Segregated Orientation

Students at U. Chicago Demand Racially Segregated Orientation

“just one of 50 demands issued recently by student groups”

Have you noticed that the same social justice warrior students who see racism everywhere are the ones increasingly demanding segregation?

The Daily Caller reports:

Chicago Students Demand Racially Segregated Orientation

Students at the University of Chicago are demanding racial segregation for incoming students of color during orientation week.

They also want some serious construction to place on campus, including building a house for illegals students.

The administration is taking the dictate very seriously, The College Fix reports. “We are reviewing and continuing dialogue,” university spokeswoman Marielle Sainvilus told the student news service via email. It’s just one of 50 demands issued recently by student groups to the university officials.

The racially segregated orientation for students of color is envisioned by the students as supplementary to the general orientation. It’s the brainchild of a group calling themselves the UChicago United and the insistence on racial separation is sixth on its list of demands. The orientation “would familiarize students with campus resources and multicultural registered student organizations” and is designed to “ease the transition to the university’s campus climate and academic demands.”

But that’s just the beginning. The UChicago United students also think the university should be employing more non-white professors and coerce the existing white professors to “include more insight from Black authors, specifically Black women” when they plan course curricula for their social science and humanities offerings.

I managed to get through college in less than four years without a bunch of “resources,” whatever those are. I went to class and the library. What else do these kids need?

    Silly – the weaker your students, the more “resources” they need. Hence the proliferation of tutoring centers, testing services for ADHD and LD students (gotta accommodate those “disabilities,” ya know), support groups for 1st gen college students (even though many, if not most, of my generation were “1st gen college students,” nobody thought that we needed such support groups), etc., etc. You probably labor under the delusion that colleges and universities are about “higher education;” in reality, they are training grounds for the administrative state, and so there is increasing emphasis put on administration rather than anything remotely resembling education. Take a look at the school’s budget and see what percentage goes towards faculty, and what goes towards administrative and support services. (This isn’t a post-secondary phenomenon, by the way – you’ll see the same top-heavy bloat at your local high school.)

So, if an ethnic group demands segregation, doesn’t that make them a racist ethnic group? Haven’t we already handled this in the Supreme Court?

The racially segregated orientation for students of color is envisioned by the students as supplementary to the general orientation.

Why not just drop the general orientation, and have a separate orientation for each race?

Oh, I know why! Because that would be “racist”!

I’d be inclined to let them have a separate house for illegals.

Puts them in one place, makes it easier for ICE.

The problem with hiring more non-white, non-Asian PhDs is that it’s a pipeline issue. Since the education situation is so bad for black and Hispanic students overall, by the time you get to PhDs there are only a tiny number of people available to hire.

Plus, the distribution of PhDs tends towards EdD’s and ‘soft’ degrees rather than in more established disciplines and STEM subjects. So a lot of crappy PhDs get hired because of demographic pressures and supply chain demands.

MLK, Jr. is spinning in his grave at hypersonic RPMs.

George Corley Wallace would applaud these students’ efforts to have a segregated commencement and a segregated orientation. He would also encourage them to break off a separate, segregated college. GCW is famous for saying, “I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”

It’s appalling how the modern “Social Justice” groups have disavowed MLK’s ideals and his efforts for integration. In a strange twist of “cultural appropriation,” they have adopted the 1960’s Southern Democrats’ enthusiasm for segregation.
We live in strange times indeed.

The full quote is even better:

“I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”–George Wallace

Blessed St. Wallace must be smiling, having won over his enemies to his views.
