Proposal for Campus Group Called ‘Students for Racial Justice’ Meets Opposition at U. Dallas

Proposal for Campus Group Called ‘Students for Racial Justice’ Meets Opposition at U. Dallas

“to have more well-informed conversations filled with empathy and compassion”

Opponents of the group fear it will be divisive. Based on what we have seen at other schools, their concerns are valid.

Inside Higher Ed reports:

Struggling to Be Heard

A student proposal to create a club focused on racial justice at the University of Dallas ran into opposition when some students and faculty members raised concerns that discussions of race on the conservative Roman Catholic campus would be divisive.

The proposal to establish the Student Leaders for Racial Justice organization is in limbo after being tabled twice by the University of Dallas Student Government, prompting the organizers to withdraw their proposal with plans to resubmit a revised club constitution next semester.

The original constitution for the proposed club said it would be open to all Dallas students and identified goals that would not be out of the norm for a campus group focused on race. The goals included increasing “awareness of, and appreciation for, students of color and their issues, histories, and cultures among the student body,” creating “a safe zone for all cultures that offers a welcoming, inclusive community and provides the opportunity to learn about the Black experience in America, as well as other minority experiences,” and providing “a collegial community on campus which will help students acquire a mature understanding of the nuanced racial and social issues arising in our problematic and ever-changing world.”

Part of the purpose for the club “is to have more well-informed conversations filled with empathy and compassion,” Joshua Nunn, a senior at the university and one of the organizers, said at a presentation of the proposed club to the student government.

Comments

The University of Dallas is recognized as one of few (about 20) authentic (faithful) Catholic colleges and universities (out of about 250 in the US).

Just another “black power” grab.

“Empathy and compassion” to start, morphing into “harassment, cancellation, and rioting” once they are safely chartered.

It’s about time there is some pushback against these left-wing racist organizations. Their identity politics just lead to stereotyping of people and race-baiting.

“The goals included increasing “awareness of, and appreciation for, students of color and their issues, histories, and cultures among the student body,” creating “a safe zone for all cultures that offers a welcoming, inclusive community and provides the opportunity to learn about the Black experience in America, as well as other minority experiences,” and providing “a collegial community on campus which will help students acquire a mature understanding of the nuanced racial and social issues arising in our problematic and ever-changing world.” Such Pretty Words. But haven’t we seen this all before. You may Notice the part which reads “as well as other minority experiences,” In other words give in to the Black groups, but the orientals, white groups, Hispanic groups, you are all om your own.

Don’t let it get a foothold.
None of it is Christian.
