Why are progressives so eager to take the country in a backwards direction and celebrate it?

Dozens of universities host segregated graduation ceremonies based on ‘identities’
More than three dozen colleges and universities are hosting 2022 graduation events to recognize minorities based on race, gender, or sexual orientation.
Groups who qualify for receiving a special graduation ceremony include Black, Latino, Asian, American Indian, and LGBTQ+ individuals.
At some universities, multiple graduations are held to accommodate numerous groups.
For example, California Polytechnic State University has an extensive list of minority-centered graduation ceremonies. Events are held for Native Americans, Jews, Asians, LGBTQ+, disabled, “Chicanx/Latinx”, African-Americans, and Southwest Asian Northwest Africans.
The university’s website advertises an event titled “Monarch Commencement Ceremony,” which “recognizes and uplifts the accomplishments and success of undocumented students.”
The list also states that the “Black Commencement Ceremony” will feature “[d]istinguished speakers, special student awards, live performances, and the tradition of wearing Kente cloth stoles hand-woven from Africa, all add to the vibrancy.”
At similar celebrations, such as one being held this year at the University of California Davis, graduates are presented with a “Kente stole.” This is a type of graduation scarf that features a traditional West African pattern.
The University of Texas at Austin describes its “Spring 2022 Black Graduation” as “an annual program that gives graduates the chance to commemorate the challenges they’ve overcome and the memories they have made throughout their college years with their classmates, friends, families, professors, and other UT Black community members.”
Harvard drew sharp criticism in 2018 when it decided to hold Black graduation for the first time in its history.
