Chapman University to Host Racially Segregated ‘Cultural Graduation Celebrations’

Chapman University to Host Racially Segregated ‘Cultural Graduation Celebrations’

“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.

Campus Reform reports:

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.

So, no whooping and hollering and fist pumping at the main ceremony? Good.

Really be missing the rap and tribal dancing

    I wonder: will blacks who took real majors be in the non-black ceremony, or does that make them Oreos?

In other news, Faber College is introducing “Negro Prom,” which will be held off-campus at the popular Dexter Lake Club.

First, unlike conventional graduation ceremonies that are planned by students for current students, this ceremony is planned by the school for people who have been alumni for either 14-months or 2-months. It exposes a recent trend by people hired for alumni programming (who probably graduated from other institutions) to try to inject identity politics into young alumni programming.

The article does not state which “woke” commencement speaker has been selected. Instead of saying, “despite COVID, use your college experience to bond together as one cohesive alumni network.” the message is “COVID destroyed your college experience, so you have very few connections to

The article does not state which “woke” commencement speaker has been selected. Instead of saying, “despite COVID, use your college experience to bond together as one cohesive alumni network.” the message is “COVID destroyed your college experience, so you have very few connections to Chapman University. Might as well come back and meet some strangers with whom you might have something superficial in common.”

George Corley Wallace was an avid proponent of these kinds of segregated festivities. If he weren’t dead, I’d suggest that he be invited to give the commencement speech.
