Anderson University Cancels Racially Segregated ‘Listening Sessions’ After Criticism

“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”

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.

Good for him!! Racism is racism, regardless of the direction it flows.

Segregation, whether desired or forced, is still segregation.

Equity requires racism, while equality eschews it. When did Floyd replace MLK Jr.? When did civil rights become uncivil rights?

    “When did Floyd replace MLK Jr.?”

    “When did civil rights become uncivil rights?”

    That was a few years earlier.

And just like that, MLK Jr. was kicked to the curb.

At least he will have company with real women who have been replaced by fake women.

“They’re so much more comfortable among those of their own kind.”

This kind of thing is going on all the time. Here is a recent example, including one private college, one public college, and a religious-connected university.

Dear Faculty and Staff,

The Offices of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion of the three Walla Walla colleges cordially invite you to this Spring’s Staff & Faculty of Color Social. Join us on Wednesday, March 9th, 4-6 p.m., for an opportunity to build community and network with peers from Walla Walla Community College, Whitman College, and Walla Walla University.

We recognize that it can be especially isolating for BIPOC communities living and working at predominantly white institutions, and we want to help build a community space focused on connection, healing, and networking with peers from the three local institutions of higher ed.

The event will be hosted at the Baker Center, 364 Boyer Avenue. Please RSVP here. Appetizers, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.

In accordance with State of Washington guidance for institutes of higher education, Whitman College is a fully vaccinated campus community. All visitors must provide proof of completing the COVID-19 vaccination and booster when attending on-campus events. N95, KN95, or KN94 masks remain required for indoor events and can only be removed when actively eating or drinking.

In collaboration,

Dr. John Johnson
Whitman College – Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion

Margarita Banderas
Walla Walla Community College – Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Pedrito U. Maynard-Reid, Th.D.
Walla Walla University – Assistant to the President for Diversity

A Christian college offering segregated events? Doesn’t seem very…Christian.

Anderson is a perfect example of how this rot has affected even otherwise good quality Christian ministries
