Coalition of ‘Latinx’ Activist Groups at Duke University Issues Demands to Combat Microaggressions
“We demand Duke establish a plan to follow ALL these demands to fruition in a transparent, ethical, and effective way that will prioritize student, faculty and staff input”
When do groups of parents and taxpayers start issuing lists of demands? Aren’t they in a better position to do so?
Campus Reform reports:
‘Latinx’ student organizations tell university to implement ‘ALL these demands’ to fight ‘microaggressions’
A coalition of Latinx organizations at Duke University has set forth demands to combat “microaggressions” and discomfort on campus.
These demands include establishing a Latinx cultural center on campus, payment for Latino Student Recruitment Weekend (LRSW) co-chairs, increased representation among staff and faculty, a Latinx studies department that includes a major and minor, and increased admissions office recruitment in highly Latinx parts of cities, the Duke Chronicle reports.
The full list of demands additionally includes “permanent, public space historicizing our integration, history and ongoing achievements on this campus in the form of a Latinx cultural center.”
The organizations are: Mi Gente; Latin American Student Organization; Brazilian Student Association; La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda, Rho Chapter; Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Zeta Mu Chapter; Latinx Business Organization; Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers; Latinx/a Women’s Alliance; Define America.
“We demand Duke establish a plan to follow ALL these demands to fruition in a transparent, ethical, and effective way that will prioritize student, faculty and staff input,” the partnered organizations state.
On Feb. 9, the student organizations held a “teach-in” with over 120 students, professors, and alumni in attendance to discuss the coalition’s platform.
At the event, the founder of Latinx Business Organization, Carlo-Alfonso Garza, addressed the audience, stating “This isn’t the first round of Latinx demands.”

Something tells me that there are very few – if any – actual Latino students in back of this nonsense. Or, at least the ones taking real majors.
I instead see ugly white women with harsh voices, begging for some sort of attention.
I bet most are “white hispanics,” of simply outraged Karens filled with white guilt.
Actually, the “la tinks” don’t represent much of the Latino community, as this community does not like their language bastardized. They don’t even like “latinx,” whatever woke garbage that is supposed to represent.
Yeah, and they want to be segregated too. Clearly it is a woke badge of honor.
Any group that calls itself “Latinx” doesn’t really represent Latinos. The word “Latinex” is as non-Hispanic as you can possibly get. The proper terms are masculine “Latino”, feminine “Latina,” and plural for mixed sexes “Latinos.”
If Late no’s of all “genders” are Latinx, are Brandons of all “genders” BrandX?
The first microaggression we must stomp out is calling people “Latinx”
“We demand Duke establish a plan to follow ALL these demands”
Ask me for a raise, kid. Go ahead.
