Dozens of Colleges and Universities Hold Separate Graduation Ceremonies Based on Identity
“At some universities, multiple graduations are held to accommodate numerous groups.”
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.
Ohio State University, Columbia University, Harvard University, Illinois State University, the University of North Texas, and the University of La Verne all offer race-based ceremonies.
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.

Based on my bloodlines, I can attend four ceremonies. White, Asian, Hispanic, and African. I am also homosexual. So, a total of five ceremonies.
My question is: can I identify as a physics major, a mathematics major, a philosophy major, a chemistry major, and a major in English Literature, will I be granted five degrees?
If they had one for bears that would make six. You would also be eligible for a degree in Park Management.
Aren’t you Jewish? That would be another degree in finance.
Peab: I think I know who gave you that downtick…
Don’t matter. I learned my lesson.
I know it wasn’t you.
I sadly can only attend the real one. 😉
What’s sad about that?
Resegregating the United States. However, this time it will be White Males at the back of the bus.
Only because white males will allow them to be pushed. Not me.
That doesn’t sound like a “Gentle” Grizzly.
I remain Gentle one it’s called for. But, I will not be pushed.
Sounds like your head is screwed on right. Your heart is in the right place and you say what you mean and you mean what you say.
Exactly right. Back in the day, what these colleges are doing would be called segregation. I’m waiting for the chant, 2-4-6-8, we ain’t gonna integrate, to be sung.
Because NOTHING is more important than alleged identity.
Especially if you are deemed to possibly identify as conservative, Christian, or White – they need to know who to hate.
“The University of Texas at Austin describes its Spring 2022 Black Graduation:
Students are so happy after graduation that they want to celebrate by having a special drinking fountain for them to drink from.
Something old, something new, something stole, something blew.
When will they restore separate sections on the buses?
How about separate water fountains? Maybe we need white heterosexual bathrooms and the analogous black ones, followed by their homosexual variants.
Much like college administrators vs. professors, the number of special bathrooms in buildings will outnumber the classrooms soon.
This madness needs to end. There’s one graduation ceremony, attend or don’t attend, it’s up to you. If you’re not there, your diploma will be mailed to your address-of-record within two weeks.
“graduates are presented with a “Kente stole.” This is a type of graduation scarf that features a traditional West African pattern.”
Yes, it is a pattern (rather nice) from Ghana, formerly Gold Coast, through which many slaves were sold, but it was worn by the slave traders (I was told when I was there). Strange choice.
As a faculty member, this is one of the few that doesn’t bother me. The less names I have to sit through to hand over a piece of paper, the better!
