UC-Berkeley Gives Students Day Off for ‘Cesar Chavez Day’

UC-Berkeley Gives Students Day Off for ‘Cesar Chavez Day’

“the principles of fairness, social justice, and the struggle for equity in the workplace and all of society”

This is the same school where a riot nearly breaks out when a conservative speaker sets foot on campus.

Berkeley takes a day off for Cesar Chavez Day, but not Columbus Day

The University of California-Berkeley list of student holidays includes a day off for Cesar Chavez Day. Columbus Day did not make the cut.

The university’s academic calendar reflects that students received a break on March 26 to commemorate the Mexican-American community organizer and activist, but does not list a break to commemorate the Italian explorer’s landfall in the Americas.

In recent years, Columbus has been the subject of increasing ire from left-leaning Americans, with many universities commemorating “Indigenous Peoples Day” on October 12, 2020. In contrast, Chavez is seen by many leftists as a social justice champion; indeed, after his inauguration, President Biden added a bust of Chavez to the Oval Office.

Administrators at Berkeley were no exception.

As a 2020 press release explained, the school takes Cesar Chavez Day off to honor “the principles of fairness, social justice, and the struggle for equity in the workplace and all of society.”

How many of them know Chavez opposed illegal aliens?

You misspelled Berserkly.

My local electric utility informed me that out weekday surcharge would be suspended in honor of Cesar Chavez’s birthday, though I had to look it up to figure out exactly what day that was.

Inexplicably, I still have to pay the surcharge on both Edison’s and Westinghouse’s birthdays.
