Student Columnist at American U. Refers to White Peers Returning to Campus as an ‘Invasive Species’

“Settler colonialism is a form of colonialism that replaces the original population with a new invasive species”

There is only one reason a college student would feel comfortable saying something like this. Democrats, the media and cultural institutions are telling them it’s OK. It’s not OK.

The College Fix reports:

Student columnist calls white peers returning to campus an ‘invasive species’

A black freshman at Washington DC’s American University recently referred to white students returning to campus as an “invasive species.”

AU is open for “temporary” housing for half of the spring semester, which means approximately 1,250 students will be living on campus between March and May.

Kayla Kelly writes in The Eagle that the housing is a form of “settler colonialism” because most of those taking advantage of the opportunity will be “affluent white students.”

“Settler colonialism is a form of colonialism that replaces the original population with a new invasive species,” Kelly says. “The settler system takes over the space, resources and culture of the environment it encompasses, displacing the original population.”

The freshman also pulls a Ray Nagin, mayor of New Orleans during 2005’s Hurricane Katrina: The white “invasion” could affect DC’s status as a “chocolate city.”

Some students who criticized AU’s housing decision faced — gasp! — “negative reactions” from their classmates. One of the critics, Katherine Greenstein, had a concern about “medical racism”:

Medical racism is real, and there is no doubt that involving privileged, mostly white students who are very likely to survive COVID-19 if they get it, will harm the people already living in D.C. …

I’m terrified that one reckless AU student could get me in a hospital on a ventilator at the end of this year. I could not imagine the fear of at-risk people, especially those who experience medical racism and discrimination in medicine, watching AU students flood to campus and in apartments around the city, potentially spreading COVID to hundreds of people.

That “black freshman” needs to be introduced to the concept of what is called a “blanket party” in the armed forces.

Seriously, this sort of thing has gone beyond tiresome.

That would be “student communist”, not to be confused with columnist, though the distinction can be arbitrary, if not vague.

I have no idea why anyone would pay the price for a certificate from such a trivial institution. If you think that having A.U. on the resume is going to be influential or even prestigious, well brand names mean different things in different places.

    I have no idea why anyone would hire a recent college graduate, with any degree, for any job.

    Companies need to bring back in-house training for the job skills they need.

      I’ve advocated that for a long time. That, and apprenticeship programs.

        Apprenticeship programs of a sort still exist in the,”Real America”. However it is something wholly unfamiliar to these city kids who’ve grown up in a world of Democratic Socialist Entitlements. It’s amazing that many college graduates are not even aware of where the groceries on the store shelves come from. It’s an unsustainable fantasy World that cannot be reconciled within the Democratic system of government. If everyone in the city is entitled to everything without consideration for the rest of Americans who provide the things they are entitled to, the rest of us become slaves to their machine! The government is spending our hard earned money like water on,”Gender Studies” in Third World Countries! We have thousands of years of real world data that there are only two genders,and besides who cares about gender identification practices in Guatemala?It’s coming to the point that the people are going to rebel and that’s why they want your guns. The Jewish people who run Hollywood have an impressive history of predicting societal trends as entertainment. The,”Hunger Games” series is a foretell ing of the Democratic Socialist future that is facing America, right now.This is the perfect system that the Elite Democrats in the Cities envision. The Covid lockdowns are only a preview! Gavin Neusom’s actions in California are a prime example. He banned indoor dining in all California restaurants, condemning thousands of family owned businesses to death.Why? So he could have a party for him and his friends at,”The French Laundry”and not have to worry about reservations or coming in contact with the unwashed masses! We as a people are faced with the destruction of the country we love.George Carlin once said,”It’s a Big Fucking Club! And You Ain’t In It”!

Differential outcomes are not evidence of medical racism. There are many diseases for which blacks are more susceptible. It’s genetic, not racism.

“Invasive species” sure sounds like a euphemism for “subhuman” to me. It must be nice being able to be a complete, racist a$$hole and never facing any repercussions for it due to your melanin count. Every day the left proves that the only thing that changed about their base was the skintone of the virulent racists within their party.

    “Invasive species” sounds – to me – like a variation of parasite.

    So, I will ask the grievance-group student: whose race has the higher per capita of Section 8 housing, EBT cards, taxpayer-funded telephones, medicaid, taxpayer-funded dentistry, and other perks. If the student answers truthfully, he will know who the REAL invasive species is.

Why didn’t this student/activist choose to go to an Historically Black College and University (HBCU)? She would be much more comfortable there as she wouldn’t have to interact with white “invaders.”

    Because you can’t grift off of similarly disadvantaged people. Ask Joann Hardesty why she is in Portland instead of Balmer. I think Redd Foxx summed it up best on Sanford and Son when trying to sort out an auto accident. “There is a big difference between a black man in a white Cadillac and a white man in a black Cadillac.”

    I’d like to believe that at least some of the HBCUs have some sort of academic standards and integrity. The columnist / cummunist in question would likely flunk out, or carry on with the same monkey-shines and be tossed out. No way to claim racism at an HBCU.

I was also a pagan fool half a century ago when I attended college, but I didn’t publish the fact.
