Georgetown U. Adding “Social Justice Emphasis to Existing ‘Diversity’ Core Requirement”
“obligates students to take a number of courses oriented around diversity and related concepts”
A panel at Georgetown looked at the program and decided that it just wasn’t left wing enough. Shocking, isn’t it?

Georgetown University to add social justice emphasis to existing ‘diversity’ core requirement
A subcommittee of Georgetown University students and faculty tasked with redesigning the school’s “Engaging Diversity” core curriculum component recently announced social justice-focused revisions to the requirement.
The core curriculum requirement, now renamed “Pathways to Social Justice,” obligates students to take a number of courses oriented around diversity and related concepts.
One component of the revisions is the addition of a new course called “University Seminar in Race, Power, and Justice at Georgetown,” which establishes “a common vocabulary” for Georgetown students to use when engaging in conversations about racial equity and justice.
“This course will focus on Georgetown’s history, including the enslavement of people of African descent, as well as how that history intersects with national and global experiences of slavery and emancipation, settler colonialism, imperialism, and contemporary struggles for justice,” reads the Pathways to Social Justice proposal document.
Elaborating on the reasoning behind the curriculum requirement’s name change, the subcommittee writes, “The replacement of the term ‘Diversity Requirement’ with the title ‘Pathways to Social Justice’ will demonstrate and signal our recognition that the time is now for a transformative cultural change in our curriculum and anti-racism practices.”
In addition to adding a new course, the subcommittee is altering the previous Engaging Diversity curriculum by removing the “global and domestic” course categories such that the range of classes that qualify for satisfying the requirement is narrowed.

Just call it “Duckspeak 101.”
Does anyone ever point out to these race-baiters that every last black slave was originally captured and sold on by another black, almost invariably an Arab and that many African states such as Benin became very wealthy on that trade?
And that the first person in the America to officially own an other human was a black man, Anthony Johnson?
If not, why not?
