Black Student Activists at Washburn U. Demand ‘Mandatory Diversity Training’

Black Student Activists at Washburn U. Demand ‘Mandatory Diversity Training’

“call on school officials to meet all of their demands”

Once again, progressive ideas are so popular that they have to be made mandatory.

Washburn black activists demand ‘mandatory diversity training,’ ‘hate speech’ sanctions

The Black Student Union at Washburn University continues to call on school officials to meet all of their demands.

The group held a “peaceful takeover rally” last semester and wants to see more action from university administrators.

The impetus for repeating the demands was a perceived failure to punish a chemistry professor who allegedly wore blackface. Subsequent evidence showed the professor, Holly O’Neill, wore dark-greenish zombie makeup at a Halloween party.

The original list of demands, first released in 2019, included identifying a location for a “Multicultural Student Resource Center,” “mandatory diversity training” for “all Washburn faculty, staff, administration and police,” and creating punishments for “hate speech,” according to the Washburn Review.

The College Fix reached out to BSU, and two alumni, D’Mya Valdivia and Alona Harrison, three times in the past three weeks for comment on the rally and demands. No responses were received to email and Facebook messages.

The black student group objected to the new multicultural center and cited what they said is a lack of input from BSU.

“Two members of the group were officially representing BSU, so we were involved in getting MILS, which is now the Multicultural Intersectional Learning Space,” an activist said in the Instagram video. “When the opening of MILS was announced publicly in the summer of 2020 BSU students and BSU alumni were unaware that the project was finalized, BSU was upset about the name and angry that the space they requested was not the space created.”

“So basically, we were lied to. Our input was asked, but after our input was asked at the beginning, it was no longer valid, it was no longer necessary,” she continued.

“niggardly.”

So how about punishing these crybabies instead. They don’t belong in college.

“Waaah! After you got our input, you didn’t do exactly what we said!”

Yes, they need diversity training. Others, not so much.

Dear (alleged) students.

Shut up and know your place. You are students. You are not in charge. Get back to class, or pack up, clear out, and withdraw. You are free to go elsewhere.

College is turning into an asylum controlled by the inmates. The colleges made the inmates though.

Time for a trade school renaissance.

    Suggested counter-offer by Washburn U.: “Get your a**es back in class or go elsewhere.”

      I would think the complainants would be happier at Grambling, Fisk, Morehouse, or, Meherry. Or, maybe the admissions standards at what at least used to be serious institutions, were too high. No race adjusted quotas.

“So basically, we were lied to. Our input was asked, but after our input was asked at the beginning, it was no longer valid, it was no longer necessary,” she continued.”

So their input was taken but not acted upon and they are mad ? Then it wasn’t input but a demad.

Go directly to hell and do not collect 200 dollars.

And ~I~ demand that they be ignored. My guess is that I can get more signatures than they can. I’m not a student there, but they probably aren’t either.
