More Than 75 Universities Now Hold Black-Only Graduation Ceremonies

More Than 75 Universities Now Hold Black-Only Graduation Ceremonies

“UC San Diego, UC Irvine, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Yale and Arizona State University”

Higher education is embracing segregation. How is this not perceived as backwards?

The College Fix reports:

More than 75 universities now host blacks-only graduation ceremonies

This month and next dozens of universities across the nation, from private top-tier schools to public state institutions, will host segregated graduation ceremonies and celebrations for their black graduates.

These supplementary ceremonies are voluntary and are offered in addition to the universities’ regular graduations. Sometimes they’re co-hosted by black campus resource centers and various academic departments. They serve to give extra honors and recognition to black students earning their degrees.

The popularity in offering these segregated graduations also seems to be growing. A new report by the National Association of Scholars that looked at 173 schools found that 76 of them, or 44 percent, offer such ceremonies.

Many others also offer similar ceremonies for Latino or LGBTQ student populations. Harvard this year also debuted a “UndocuGraduation” for students in the country illegally.

As for the black graduations, a few notable universities they’re held at include UC San Diego, UC Irvine, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Yale and Arizona State University.

Erika Johnson, a spokesperson for UC San Diego, told The College Fix that the Black Resource Center at the university hosts its ceremony.

“Numerous campus programs and organizations hold supplementary celebrations to honor student achievement—these do not substitute university commencement ceremonies. The Black Resource Center is an example of this and holds the Black Graduation Ceremony as an additional pre-commencement celebration to honor the academic achievements of graduating students,” she said via email.

Maybe it’s just candor. Affirmative Action degrees should be awarded during Affirmative Action ceremonies.

    Many think that Jim Crow was only initiated by whites. It was not. I have lived in the South for 70 years and can assert that blacks were content with segregation. In Louisiana, blacks will not allow musing of segregated upper level school systems.

….and Lib “Dixicrats” nationwide are high-fiving and whispering…

See how they still “know their place” in the natural order of things? Don’t ya just love it when a plan comes together?

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

I wish they’d segregate our graduation…by college. It’s long and done outside in the early May roast.

Bull Connor smiles from beyond.

So, they’re reverting to the 60’s. How progressive of them!

Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.

    “Do dah name George Wallace strike a familiar note!?”

    HT Flip Wilson, who’s popularity I would have thought proved Wallace wrong permanently. Looks like would be wrong. Wallace’s Inauguration speech included “Segregation today, segregation forever.”

I thought this crap was done back when I was in grade school. Way to go liberals, at this rate we’ll be back to slavery and bonds servants in no time.

Maybe we could set up stocks and the dunking chair for them.

    And, dah white folk can buy refreshments at Dunking Donuts and watch the festivities.

    I am of course alluding to that meme that was going around several years back, that said the origin of “picnic” was “pick a nig”, and it was an event for white folks to watch blacks get lynched. Quite a few bought into that at face value.

      Living west of D.C. (The Emerald City of Odds), in Northern Virginia, we watched with amusement a couple years ago when a DC Councilperson got all phlegm-flingin’ apoplectic when another council member commented that the budget was “niggardly.”

      Cue the histrionics, screeching calls of “racism” and other DEFCON-1 fireworks….

      …until someone suggested that said offended Councilperson check out the nearest dictionary and discover that the word has zero, zilch, zip, nada to do with race, but merely describes the miserly amount of something.

      Ah….D.C. politics, especially city, are an endless source of entertainment, if not angst about the caliber of the electorate that keeps these bozos in office.

      DC politics — small caliber, immense bore.

      …sigh…
