Segregated dorms for males ‘who identify as Black’ coming to UConn

The University of Connecticut is hoping that black males will graduate at a higher rate if they spend more time with one another, and is building a new residence hall to facilitate just that.

The ScHOLA²RS House—which stands for “Scholistic [sic] House Of Leaders who are African American Researchers and Scholars”—”is a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs,” the website states.

    … or … get rid of affirmative action so that only blacks who have the necessary ability to graduate actually enter the school.

    But I suppose that would violate the bureaucratic maxim that all failed policies must be augmented by additional new policies rather than just repealed.

    Next they will all want their own drinking fountains.

    I’m sure the all black dorms will focus on ‘higher education’ for their students.

    “The University of Connecticut is hoping that black males will graduate at a higher rate if they spend more time with one another”

    So that explains why all the gangstas in the hood are illiterates – they just don’t spend enough time with one another!

      Give the man a prize.

    So, if that WHITE woman who identifies herself as BLACK counts as a BLACK, then a WHITE man who IDENTIFIES as black will be admitted into this segregated residence. What a FARCE – but it is not segregation if blacks do it, or they do it FOR blacks. Good grieve, what a silly delusional world these ivory tower rocket scientists live in!!!

    so as a white honky I was refused a room in this dorm because of racism could I get a bundle of money through an anti-discrimination lawsuit? Oops, sorry, that only works for non-whites!

    Racist blacks demanded equality, but now want segregation.

  • Better not drop the soap in the dorm showers…. would be like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock “The birds” move.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That made no sense, even as a metaphor.

  • Jay Currie

    How about an Asian House for Leaders and a White House for Leaders and a Hispanic House for Leaders. Plus ladies versions of same…

    OK, now you have created the old Greek system so much maligned for its bigotry.

    Hey, muslims already get special treatment in the Public schools for prayer rooms and now they want Pork banned from every place that serves food.

    Blacks are seeing how the muslims are getting their way under Obama’s USA , so why not make demands too .

    All I can say is, WTF?

    Their next demand will be black-only classes with black teachers, even for “non-black” subjects like math and puppetry. Then there will be a black grading system and black diplomas, black-only parking spots, black-only bathrooms, a black-only lunch menu and black-only holidays.

    But they will also fight vehemently against any other group receiving the same entitlements, because racism.

    The City of Toronto is ahead of its time – The Toronto version of Blacks only residences is called TCHC at Jane and Finch.

    I hope they have no class requirements. And of course it must be free. Because nothing screams competence to a prospective employer of America’s future leaders than that. In fact, just give them all degrees and a Pultizer winning book deal now.

    So, can we have all White dorms? I didn’t think so.
