“People claiming to be fighting racism are the ones unintentionally re-popularizing it”
The response from the College Republicans is perfect. The left is setting us back as a country.

Chapman University hosts racially segregated ‘cultural graduation celebrations’
Chapman University will be hosting segregated “Cultural Graduation” ceremonies in July and August based on various racial and identity categories.
The Chapman University Cross-Cultural Center will be hosting a “Black Graduation,” “APIDA Graduation,” “Lavender Graduation,” “disability Graduation,” “Middle Eastern Graduation,” and “Latinx Graduation.” The “Cultural Graduation celebrations” will take place on July 30, July 31, August 1, August 6, August 7, and August 8.
According to the Cross-Cultural Center’s Instagram page, the celebrations are done in addition to the Chapman University main commencement ceremony.
“Cultural graduation celebrations are additions to the university-wide commencement ceremony, students are free to register for these additional celebrations to share the joy of graduation with their friends and family if they choose to,” the post states.
In a statement released to Campus Reform, Chapman University’s College Republican’s president Justin Buckner strongly denounced the event.
“People claiming to be fighting racism are the ones unintentionally re-popularizing it,” Buckner stated. “There is no separate graduation for exceptional academic achievement, but one for someone’s skin color. The lack of attention to exceptional individual achievement while simultaneously only looking through the prism of race is concerning for our future.”
While normally occurring in May, Chapman University’s graduation was moved to late July due to COVID-19. The ceremony is for both the class of 2021 and the class of 2020, who’s graduation last year was cancelled due to the coronavirus.
