It’s the year 2022 and segregation is increasing, thanks to progressives in higher ed.
The College Fix reports:
Racially segregated ‘listening sessions’ at Christian university canceled following criticism
A small Christian university in Indiana has canceled its racial “listening sessions,” originally scheduled for tomorrow, after media attention, criticism and a rebuke from a U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member.
“It has become apparent that our plans for listening sessions have caused concern and confusion,” President John Pistole (pictured) wrote in an email to the Anderson University community on Saturday. He announced that university officials had “canceled all sessions” at the Church of God-affiliated school.
Chalkboard Review, a right-leaning education site, first reported on the sessions.
It reported on April 8 that there would be two sessions for “Students of Color” and two for “White Students.”
The sessions were initiated by the campus Racial Equity Task Force. Chalkboard Review compiled comments from student group pages on social media that show criticism of the events.
The events drew a rebuke from Commissioner Peter Kirsanow of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, who sent a letter to the university and said the events violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Kirsanow, who is black, reminded the university that it cannot exclude or segregate students and employees on the basis of race.
