Universities, students of color embrace segregated spaces on campus

At universities nationwide, segregated spaces for students of color is becoming a more common and welcomed occurrence, seen in everything from housing and social gatherings to protests and grief sessions.

Most recently the trend could be seen in the wake of officer-involved shootings in Minnesota, Louisiana and Dallas this month, as at least two universities hosted campus meetings segregated by race to process the incidents.

Before long they’ll demand their own schools and water fountains.

    You know they would scream bloody murder if we suggested they have segregated spaces but its ok when they do it.

    • Ed

      No. What will happen is they’ll get all segregated, and then notice they’re segregated, and blame whitey and demand desegregation.

      Wash, rinse, repeat.

    I am fine with that. Now I don’t want to hear a peep out of them if others also want their own segregated space. How about one for only white males or even better one that prohibits all communists,socialists, and globalists.

    In what will be a wonderfully ironic comment, the last American universities to so much as permit white students to attend will be the historically black colleges.

  • Well they pushed for Black schools in Toronto, so be it.

    I’m all for segregation, back to their countries of origin.

    Looks like we’ve come full circle.

    My kids saw that in their high school cafeteria.

    They called it “Cafrika”

    I’m good with this. If the disaffected blacks all leave it will be that much better for those who don’t.

    I’m trying to organise a bus trip to the southern USA ….something akin to the freedom riders of the sixties. The big difference being that only white people are invited.
    My goal is to expunge in some small way the burden of guilt white folks carry and the anger black folks nurse. I’m seeking permission to work picking cotton as blacks did pre Emancipation. I believe that black folks seeing privileged white folks under the overseers lash will finally understand that white people are willing to not only talk the talk but actually walk the walk.
    I’m encountering a lot of interest from folks already. If you can help with costs in even a small way it would be very much appreciated. You can pay pal funds to Blazing Cat Fur for
    Colonel Spatchcocked’s Old Virginny Asperges Mei foundation.
    Thanking you in advance for your generosity.

    They could call the white-only areas “safe spaces”

    We want people with grit……and grits too…..and hominy? LOTS!

    Are we coming full circle here?

    About a year ago I came across a news report from South Africa describing how Blacks were re-segregating themselves on university campuses etc.

    I sometimes think that segregation was actually the preferred choice of Blacks back before the civil rights era.

    Yes the segregation was official, but that status as ‘official’ was just the legal recognition of a situation SOME Blacks may have actually wanted.
