Student Leaders at Bucknell U. ‘Back Segregated Housing for Black Students’
“We DEMAND that there be more housing options for black students on campus aside from 7th Street House”
This is what happens when you don’t teach young people history and instead fill their heads with insane ideas about race.

Bucknell student leaders back segregated housing for black students
Bucknell University’s student government recently endorsed several demands made by the school’s Black Student Union, including a demand for black student housing and another that would require students to identify the “racial climate” of classrooms in end-of-course assessments.
“We DEMAND that there be more housing options for black students on campus aside from 7th Street House,” the Black Student Union wrote in a statement.
The student government letter called on Bucknell University President John Bravman to “make a statement recognizing that he saw the Black Student Union’s Letter and that he is working to fit their demands,” according to the campus newspaper.
The College Fix reached out via email to Sam Douds, Bucknell’s student government president, to ask why he and other leaders endorsed the letter, but did not receive a response.
The Fix sent multiple emailed requests for comment to the BSU in the past week asking it to identify specific instances of “anti-blackness” it referenced as reasoning for the demands as well as for clarification on if the group wanted more housing options for only black students.
The group criticized the university for not responding in February, calling it “another example of the willful and egregious disregard of Black students, their experiences, and their well-being on this campus,” in an Instagram post that also included the demands.
The university acknowledged the request in an email to The College Fix.
“The University is aware of the Black Student Union’s (BSU) letter,” Mike Ferlazzo, Bucknell’s director of media relations, said on April 12.
“The University is deeply committed to the challenging work of ensuring that Bucknell is an inclusive campus where all students feel welcome and comfortable — a place where each individual can thrive and reach their academic and personal goals,” Ferlazzo said. “We understand that for some in our community, we have not achieved that goal.”

2-4-6-8, we don’t want to integrate used to be a slogan in the South by white people. Now, it has become a black slogan. RIP, the Civil Rights act. If these blacks don’t want to be around white people, why are they at a school that has white people? They should go to an HBCU which is predominantly black.
LET them segregate. I flat don’t care anymore.
Plessy v. Ferguson, call your office!
I can visualize many positives for the serious academic-oriented students on campus if they did not have to share living space with the black cohort.
