“if anyone reading this asks why the next president of URI must be an African-American but has never questioned why URI has had 128-years of white presidents then you must be a racist”
This kind of thinking is happening on a lot of college campuses. It seems like a form of anti-racism hysteria. There’s no other way to describe it.
The College Fix reports:
Activists threaten lawsuit if university does not hire slave descendant as next president
Activists at a public university in Rhode Island are threatening a lawsuit against their school if it does not hire a slave descendant as its next president.
“Some Black, White and Latino students shall join in another class action lawsuit if the next URI President is not an African-American with an ancestry to slavery,” read the list of demands put out by the Diversity Think Tank at the University of Rhode Island.
The complete list of demands spans 46 different points of contention over nearly 15,000 words.
“And, if anyone reading this asks why the next president of URI must be an African-American but has never questioned why URI has had 128-years of white presidents then you must be a racist,” it states.
The list is referred to as the group’s “Declaration of Diversity.”
The professor leading the Diversity Think Tank, Professor Louis Fosu, did not respond to multiple emailed requests for comment from The College Fix in the past two weeks. Nor did the activist group respond to multiple messages sent through its website.
Fosu is the executive director and founder of the group. The think tank website said he does not speak to the media and tells reporters to contact three students and a university employee instead. The Fix reached out to Sherrilynn Bevel via email twice in the past week but the university staffer did not respond to requests for comment. Nor did students Benjamin Wilkie, Mitchell Asante and Michael A’vant.
