Black-only graduations are a step backwards

Believe it or not, this week the University of Toronto gave its official blessing and taxpayer dollars for a black-students-only graduation.

No doubt administrators saw their actions as the height of enlightenment, the epitome of tolerance. Instead, what this was yet another step away from a truly inclusive society and into the middle of a racial and gender identity-politics minefield.

It would only be racist if white students did it.

    Maybe ‘separate but equal’ wasn’t such a bad idea after all?
    What if it was better than forced integration?
    Maybe Martin Luther King Jr’s “dream” really was an impossible delusion because it didn’t conform to reality?

    Believe it or not, this week the University of Toronto gave its official blessing and taxpayer dollars for a “back of the bus” subway pass. Black students will now be able to ride to UofT on a special area at the back of each subway car.

    Hey, while we are bringing back segregation, how about segregating Canada from Islam? Give Muslims a Muslim only country to live in, say in the middle east somewhere.

    Means as much to this white guy as that diploma in gender studies and African Medicines means to prospective employers.

    This is not unexpected. Inferiority causes people to self segregate.

    Well, it cuts down on the stabbings at the regular ceremonies. I wonder how that multi million dollar expansion to the islamic studies building is coming, at the University of Toronto. Would like to know how much Saudi money went into that.

    “Dean, the guys and me would rather graduate in our own all-male ceremony. No, it’s not that we don’t like females. It’s just that we’ve already had these skanks and would not be caught dead walking beside such cheap, damaged goods in daylight. So we want our graduation to be a skank-free ceremony, Dean. Is that too much to ask?”

    Why is it a step backwards? Now they white kids don’t have to put up with the black kids at their graduation.

    I really don’t care. How will these people function in the world if they don’t get jobs in academia? I have to deal with corporate security risks all the time and believe me when I say we don’t tolerate malfeasance, theft, protests or activism in any way.

    I’m old enough to remember when “de” segregation was the goal. It’s a funny old world.

  • This was segregation, the very thing most people sought to get rid of at one stage.

    It only affected a few people . The rest were mailed a fake Diploma via affirmative action where they all get a passing grade.
