Marquette University Considering ‘Black-Only’ Housing

Marquette University Considering ‘Black-Only’ Housing

“Marquette will work toward creating a Black Living Learning Community in a residence hall”

This is also being pushed at New York University. Progressives in higher education are intent on reversing the work of the Civil Rights movement.

The College Fix reports:

Marquette explores blacks-only housing plan, hate speech punishment

Marquette University has joined its fellow Catholic institution Loyola University Chicago in considering blacks-only housing.

The Catholic college in Milwaukee announced an update in early September on a number of demands from the Black Student Council at Marquette, including a pledge to explore a “Black Living Learning Community” and ways to punish “hate speech.”

The student activist group had asked the university for a number of demands in a July Change.org petition that garnered 1,500 signatures.

“Marquette will work toward creating a Black Living Learning Community in a residence hall,” campus administrators said in their September 3 update to the community. Learning communities “bring together students with common majors or common interests” and are offered to freshmen and sophomore students, according to the school’s residence life office website. There is currently a Latino learning community.

The school will also “review and revise, as needed, current policies regarding hate speech and racist behaviors to better allow for effective enforcement,” according to the statement from university President Michael Lovell and Provost Kimo Ah Yun. The review and revision is geared toward improving “the campus environment for all students and employees.”

Though the update first came out on September 3, the school has still yet to provide further details on its plans. The College Fix reached out three times via email to media relations officials seeking comment on the plan in the past week but has yet to receive a response on how the school plans to punish hate speech and how it plans to implement the Black Living Learning Community.

In the 60s, when separate housing for negroes was required, it was evil and racist. Now, 60 years later, it is necessary to combat racism?

Am I the only one to see the dichotomy in this?

Affirmative Action has morphed into Affirmative Racism.

    While promoting Affirmative Incompetence. I would love to see more competent blacks, what I do not want to see are large numbers of Affirmative Incompetents like we have today.

“The student activist group had asked the university for a number of demands…”
am I the only one to have a problem understanding the language: asked/demands?

It sounds to me like Marquette University might become another Howard. Bowing to black racism is a huge mistake.

I guess they don’t teach much during black history month at the university

I don’t care what Marquette does as long as the University stops accepting Federal Funds once they create this facility that doesn’t include ALL students as a required by Federal Civil Rights laws.

It sure seems like Marquette is creating a hostile environment by excluding non-Blacks in their plans. If they want Federal funding, we may need to look into giving Marquette “The Full Princeton” and see how far back the University’s systemic racism goes.

The population of blacks is about 13% and I assume, due to Affirmative Action and other “diversity” regulations, the Marquette population of blacks is similar. Once this blacks-only dorm is put in place, will that result in whites-only dorms on the rest of campus?
If so, the residents who are not in blacks-only dorms will be accused of racism. It boggles the mind.

“ Writing the majority opinion in that 1954 case, Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote that “the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place” in public education, calling segregated schools “inherently unequal,” and declaring that the plaintiffs in the Brown case were being “deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.”

At the entry gates, these academic centers, like cigarettes, need FDA warnings: “Abandon Cognition All Ye Who Enter Here”.

Lordy, Lordy. Do they lobotomize these kids during Sociology 101?
