Imagine if college students stopped being needy and just studied

Apparently more and more students are majoring in Gimme Gimme Gimme!

Students at the University of Maryland have released a list of 64 demands in their effort make the campus more amenable to “marginalized student populations.”

The project, known as ProtectUMD, is a collaborative effort between 25 student organizations at the University of Maryland, including Students for Justice in Palestine, Bisexuals at Maryland, and the Black Student Union.

You know what would really make the campus more amenable? If these groups of needy whiners who are obsessed with their “identity” would stop telling every student they are victims, and oppressed. I imagine their irritating attitudes and tactics do more to make fellow students feel uncomfortable than the imagined “oppression” they are whining about.

There are 64 demands across 8 subsets of students—Marginalized, American Indian, Black, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, Pro-Palestine, and Undocumented—including scholarships for “students of marginalized communities,” a ban on Columbus Day, beginning every on-campus event with an acknowledgement that “this is Indigenous Land,” that African American professors get tenure, that preferred pronouns are included on rosters, and that “queer diversity training” is required.

Oh good grief, shut up and start studying. You might just learn something. In fact, these tools should really study actual oppression rather than pretending they are victims of oppression.
