This gets them their special feels cookie from the school. At least, they will be gone faster this way.

“awesomeness factor”? Really?
This is from a supposed institution of higher learning? It sounds like 6th grade- if that.

Pitiful and pathetic.

Don’t they understand that this dual commencement is a textbook racist action? Separate but equal is inherently unequal. They seem inclined to label everyone else as racists to deflect from their own blatantly racist discrimination.

    No because they have redefined racism to mean “whatever we don’t like”, and if they want it, then it must be good.

In the St. Olaf that I came from, even cows are treated equally.

Am I wrong? It seems to me that there is a lawsuit waiting to happen, claiming prejudice against race or sexual preference.

use the enemies’ rules against them.
