"Blacks-only classes at local college"

Campus Reform:  “While helping my son register for college at Moraine Valley Community College, we noticed that the required course College 101 has two sections limited to African-American students," one concerned parent told The Chicago Tribune. "He wants to know why there are not two sections limited to Asian-American students? How about Native American students?"

This segregation of students by race seems odd, especially considering the course’s emphasis on diversity.

“[College 101] provides an opportunity to assess your purpose for college, assess your study strategies, set college and career goals, examine your values and decision-making skills, and develop an appreciation for diversity,” the course catalog states.

But Jessica Crotty, Moraine’s assistant director of communications, made the case for segregation, saying the school periodically reserves certain course offerings for various demographics of students, including veterans.

“Sometimes we set aside sections for specific populations, including veterans and older students,” Crotty noted.

"The focus can be on specific issues they face," she explained. "For example, veterans face a specific set of challenges. Students feel comfortable and are more likely to open up because they're with other students who are like them."

What about Rachel Dolezal?

"The focus can be on specific issues they face,"

So they are separate AND unequal. Well, that's different.

Racism is back in vogue. It goes the other way - but Obama placed his stamp of approval on it, so there ya go. Divisions by skin color are cool now.

"Students/people feel comfortable and are more likely to open up because they're with other students/people who are like them."

People want to be with people who they can feel comfortable with. Nothing wrong with that. Hence the desire to live in a suburb and not be force integrated with Section 8 scum who will make your life a living hell or be placed cheek by jowl with a bunch of liberal fucktards and forced to live by their rules. HUD is hell bent on forcing integration into all areas of our personal lives and placing section 8 housing into all neighborhoods. This will NOT turn out well.

Somehow the segregation of schools in the past that was so heinous is now a "good thing" as Martha Stewart would put it.

Actually, people will be and can be accepting of others. Others who want to just get along and not force themselves into your life. You can work with, shop with, eat dinner at a restaurant with all sorts of people without any instances of strife. It is when people feel FORCED and backed into corners the strife occurs.

Segregation. The stalwart of the Democrat party.

One gets the impression they think if they study alongside white people, they may figure out they have a lot of the same problems.

oopsy, you've got it.Keeping blacks segregated is the last hope the Left has in keeping them on the plantation. They have a chance to mix with other people and they find, no, they don't spend every waking moment plotting against blacks.

They did this at my U for freshman orientation. 30 years ago. The black kids had to come in early for some sort of special orientation, to acclimatize to white peoples' society. Hideously racist presumptions when you actually stop and think about it. These were the sons and daughters of very, very successful people. And the college thought their kids needed a special introduction to the "white" society of college. Disgusting. We are regressing.

Here's a video statement from the college president.

It's plain as day that Civil Rights has failed. People want to live segregated lives away from their fear of their xenoracism and the left, ironically enough, is the worst perpetrator of such behavior and no one calls them out on it on a daily basis.

But I though Hillary's slogan was Stronger Together?

Amartel said...

"Stronger Together" = "Vote for me or you're dead"
"Love" = "Hate"
"I'm with Her" = "I'm better than you"

... and appreciation for diversity."

The class sounds like a standard "succeeding at college" class with "appreciation for diversity" tacked on because that's sort of a thing... tack that on to just about anything.

Then there's the end of course reviews that always asked if the class had helped me form a commitment to values or some silly thing. I usually wrote in something to the tune of "How dare you? This is beyond inappropriate. This is not a propaganda course and you're not in the business of making sure that I think the right sorts of things about anything. I find this question profoundly offensive and insulting. This is none of your business!"
