“laundry list also asks administrators to create several spaces solely for black students on campus”
Imagine being ‘accused’ of hate speech, and having it stamped on your college transcript. Forever.

UMaryland Black Leaders Push For ‘Hate Speech’ Notation on Students’ Permanent Record
A group of black student leaders at University of Maryland has compiled a list of “critical issues” they believe the school’s administration must address to eradicate “anti-black racism.”
Students are pushing administrators to go so far as transcript notations for those accused of hate speech. “Immediate response to hate speech or actions from the university including a consequence (e.g: mark on the transcript or potential suspension),” the fourth recommendation states. UMD notes that the recommendation is “in progress” with the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, expecting work to be completed on this issue by the fall.
The list of 25 recommendations centers around creating many black-only spaces, defunding campus police in exchange for more funding of black student organizations, and cracking down on alleged “hate speech.” There is no definition listed for what the school considers to be hate speech.
The leaders also want to redistribute funding from campus police. “Reevaluate and reduce the excessive funding to UMPD publicly. Redistribute these funds and resources to Black organizations on campus, Nyumburu Cultural Center, and the African American studies department,” the third recommendation says.
The laundry list also asks administrators to create several spaces solely for black students on campus, in addition to “prioritizing minority enrollment.”

Lets chase away the white kids. What could go wrong?
“Dear black students: We have created the black-only spaces you requested. They’re at Howard U. Don’t let the screen door hitcha.”
These kids wouldn’t know due process from their doody process.
Beat me by 25 minutes.
They have HBCUs, they need to go to them and leave the oppressive atmosphere they despise so much.

Frequently skipped classes
Bald faced racist
So if one is ‘accused’ of hate speech then it follows automatically that the person in question is ‘guilty’ and thus must have a black mark on their transcript?
If the administration were foolish enough to do this I would forsee and long line of lawsuits following the first time a transcript is marked with an accusation.
I think the point of the exercise is to hide the punishment from the accused. Give a transcript with the mark to graduate schools and employers, and give one without it to the student. The only thing the accused knows is that they mysteriously can’t get a job or admitted to graduate school.
Understand that they hate us. Not all black students, but a large enough percentage to get this stuff taken seriously — and few of the rest disagree enough to push back.
I think there is little doubt that these new “antiracist policies” are creating racism where none existed. I’m not sure if it’s intended or just another “unintended consequence.” Either way, it’s bad for our country.
I think that many groups, including blacks are being conned to take a path which is very destructive to their long term interests. In the end a majority is going to be pissed at them, and they will pay a price for this conduct.
Sadly CRT is infecting our large corporations as well. Further than you may know.
13% of the population holding sway over the rest of us.
Those making the demands need to be told no. No explanation. Just NO.
Jusr a calm, even-voiced “no”. No raised voice because that is what they want. Showing a loss of temper means thier poking their stick at you had the effect they seek. We lost control of these people in 1964. There is no reason to let them take control now.
Starting with these little fascists.
