“as well as BC’s “culture [of] institutional passivity”
Even when there’s nothing specific to protest, some students can still find a way to make it happen.
The College Fix reports:
Boston College students hold ‘die-in’ because ‘oppression’ and ‘institutional passivity’
These days, you can actually witness students complain about being “oppressed” — so much so that they’ll pretend to be dead — at a posh private institution whose total cost of attendance tops $70,000 per year.
Last week at Boston College, a group dubbed the Black Eagles organized a “die-in” to protest the “various forms of oppression” at the school, as well as BC’s “culture [of] institutional passivity.”
“[T]his culture continues to ripple into both student and faculty experience,” a Black Eagles flyer reads.
According to The Heights, a total of approximately 150 students — 100 lying on the ground with another 50 surrounding them — participated in the protest. Most had duct tape over their mouths to symbolize “the institutional silencing” that supposedly occurs at the school.
The Black Eagles also submitted a letter to college officials with its “recommendations” regarding the school’s “structural inequity.” For example, it criticizes BC’s “Diversity Edu” online module (required of all students) as “significantly lacking depth and fail[ing] to utilize intersectionality.”
