Anonymous Group at College of Wooster Distributes ‘Black Manifesto’
“This is my Manifesto. I like the importance of that word. The weight of it.”
In recent years, campus activists have become way too comfortable issuing demands.

EXCLUSIVE: School responds to demands listed in anonymous ‘Black Manifesto’
An anonymous group recently distributed a list of demands alongside via flyers labeled “The Black Manifesto” at The College of Wooster, located in Wooster, Ohio. The flyers demanded that the school respond, and it did so by holding a town hall—followed by an email apologizing for perceived dissatisfaction with the event.
Flyers found around campus were divided into two sections: “Word on the Street” and “Demands.”
“I am at the point in my life where I can affect change. To deny myself this opportunity is to deny my children of the same dream MLK had. We all quote his words, but who ever applies them? Sometimes I feel like he knew he was going to die. Like that speech ‘I have been to the mountaintop’ , is his last hurrah – a final goodbye to his people. To us,” the flyer starts.
The flyer continues, “This is my Manifesto. I like the importance of that word. The weight of it. ‘Manifesto.’ What does it truly mean? To me, it is a bible of sorts. A guidebook, a manual, at times even a fable.”
The second section of the flyer is a list of demands for The College of Wooster.
Demands include “at least two Black counselors” in the school’s mental health center, “equitable pay and resources” for Black employees, and mandatory bias training.
The flyer also includes a demand that Black students should “stop having to constantly bear out our traumas to justify why we need to receive aid and scholarship,” and a demand that the university respond to the manifesto “in its entirety” within a week.

You have to bear out your traumas because somebody thought it was a “good idea” to let you qualify on the basis of your traumas instead of on your objective academic achievement, like the rest of us have to.
Some people are never satisfied.
Being a black counselor is not a bona fide job requirement. Could someone please explain to me how specifically hiring a counselor who is black is somehow exempt from Title VI? Wooster College should hire the best possible and most qualified people to work as counselors. When there are more than one counselor available to help a student, the counselors should not be assigned to students based upon race. That is just racist.

skip cultural studies, consider remedial english
No, you are at a point in life where your only skill seems to be inviting mockery.
