University of Alabama Students Hold ‘Die-in’ to Highlight Struggle of ‘Marginalized Students’

“follows a protest from last month in which UA students marched for ‘diversity and free speech.’”

This is another prime example of virtue-signaling. Don’t these students have papers to write and studying to do?

The College Fix reports:

U. Alabama students stage ‘die-in’ to highlight struggles of ‘marginalized’ students

Students at the University of Alabama staged a “die-in” yesterday to bring attention to “the experiences and concerns of marginalized students on campus.”

The “tip of the iceberg” for those involved in the so-called “#DyingForAnswers” campaign was the resignation of Dean of Students Jamie Riley. In what was an ironic twist of progressive “cancel culture,” old tweets from Riley’s Twitter account were brought to light in which he said the American flag represented racism, and that police were part of “that system.”

The dean also had written that white people “can’t experience racism.”

The die-in follows a protest from last month in which UA students marched for “diversity and free speech.”

According to The Crimson White, die-in participants were instructed not to talk during the protest, and instead offer a written statement about the event…

From the story:

“Though there have been great strides made, the time has come again for The University of Alabama to uphold its mission and core values of advancing the intellectual and social condition of the people of the state as well as its commitment to a culture of inclusivity,” Semaj’ E. Davis said in a press release. “The lack of response from the administration, specifically Dr. Stuart Bell, has sent a very frank message to minority students: stay in your place.” …

Wyatt said she wants UA administration and Alabama Board of Trustees to pay attention to the needs of minority students, including the need for a designated physical space for and minority students students to have their own programming and staff.

Well heck, if they were keeping quiet about it before the event, that would explain the lack of response before the event from the administration.

If these minority students (who may not speak for other minority students from the same or different minorities) want their own programming, I believe there are other majority-black schools within the state where they can have lots of their own programming, and those schools don’t provide separate programming for whites.

If they want their own space they can rent or buy a building off campus like anyone else.

    Best. Leftist. Protest. Ever.

Calling for segregation?

    That was my thought as well. I wonder if they actually realize they are calling for segregation.

Did they just appropriate dead people (aka another Democrat special interest voting bloc)?

after the aoc rally, why stage it

Save the planet, marginalized students, these and other such hardships college students tell us they face are hyper 1st-world problems. Our K-12 teachers have done a marvelous job delivering irrational and useful idiots for their final indoctrination at the college level. They will graduate ready to vote for anyone promising to “fundamentally transform” the US. God help this Country.

Oh, wait. No worries: the planet will only last
11 more years anyway.
