Only ‘BIPOC’ Students Invited to Discuss Race on Campus at a U. Chicago Student Org’s Event

Only ‘BIPOC’ Students Invited to Discuss Race on Campus at a U. Chicago Student Org’s Event

“A BIPOC-ONLY space for honest discussion of navigating race at UChicago between new and old students”

BIPOC stands for black, indigenous, and other people of color. So this event excluded some people on the basis of color. Isn’t that illegal?

FOX News reports:

University of Chicago student organization hosts ‘BIPOC-only’ discussion about race on campus

A student organization at the University of Chicago is hosting a discussion on race that is “BIPOC-Only.”

The student organization, UChicago United, is hosting an event titled “Race @ UChicago” as part of its “Dis-orientation” on Oct. 15 that is listed as a “BIPOC-Only space.”

“A BIPOC-ONLY space for honest discussion of navigating race at UChicago between new and old students,” the event description reads.

Other events being hosted by the organization during the fall semester include radical story hour, policing, gentrification, and abolition, anti-militarism 101, and activist open house.

UChicago United’s “Dis-orientation” is a series of events “aimed at educating first years about the ‘real’ University of Chicago.”

Participants of all events are required to wear a mask, and the student organization wrote “the pandemic is not over. we keep us safe!”

The organization also created a campaign called “CareNotCops” which was in response to the shooting of a student, Charles Thomas, by a University of Chicago Police Department officer on April 3, 2018.

Comments

Bipocs, or Bipox, sounds like a social(ist) disease.

Racists gotta racist.

To me that means I don’t care about the whole issue, which is what I was doing anyway. I give no plus or minus based on skin color. And any amount of haranguing or gameplaying won’t work, I’ll adjust so that I still end up doing that.

After all when they were discussing it openly, I was excluded. Not my issue, not my problem, not my interest.

Ok, they can have it.

“Community organizing” much?

Isn’t this how gangs take over prisons?

If you have any self-respect, why would anyone have anything to do with this place?

U. Chicago has been a rare exception to the dismantling of free speech and academic inquiry by universities’ own administrations. Now here are some students determined to undo the good work of their schools and wreck their own educations. Isn’t “student power” just grand?

Why does race need to be “navigated”? The narcissism on display is breathtaking.
