“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.
