Moonbattery has the sad saga of the ongoing competition to be the biggest victim group
Last month’s University of California Students of Color Conference demonstrates why. UCLA student Jacqueline Alvarez reports:
[An] example of safe spaces gone wrong was the 2016 Students of Color Conference held [last] month, which hundreds of University of California students attended, including some of UCLA’s Undergraduate Students Association Council representatives. According to their mission statement, SOCC’s major goal was to “create a space to discuss, dissect, and create relevant solutions to issues surrounding students of color.” However, the conference eventually turned into a kind of “oppression Olympics,” where students argued over which minority group was oppressed the most rather than finding solidarity and understanding amongst each other.
More details from The College Fix:
The crux of the debate centered around the conference theme: “Fighting Anti-Blackness.” Apparently it was not communicated to students that the conference would have a particular theme this year. At the event, held at UC Irvine, students of different minority groups began arguing when it became known that the conference would focus almost exclusively on discrimination against the African American community.
In one of the larger workshops, one of the students raised a question about why the only issues being discussed were those involving anti-blackness, prompting an African-American student to respond that black students are the most oppressed, to which a Muslim student made a comment about her people being bombed in the Middle East, according to Alvarez.
This exchange, and others like it, resulted in the cancellation of several sessions on the second day of the conference, Alvarez said. Above all, conference participants each wanted to focus on their own particular minority issue, she said.
Who did not see that coming. A bunch of self-absorbed whiners start fighting each other because they are only happy when pretending to be oppressed. This is the natural outcome of Identity Obsession Syndrome
