The Left bastardizes and destroys everything it touches, and race relations is a prime example. There was once a shameful time in America where people were segregated. this segregation was codified into law. But, as with other sins, and faults, American greatness overcame its own shortcomings. Liberals, that is to say actual Liberals, not what passes as “liberal” today helped greatly in turning that tide. Segregation died of its own sickness, and racism began to follow suit. Yes, of course the left would argue that racism is still prevalent in America, but the fact is that America is the most racially tolerant nation on earth. The fact is fewer and fewer people care about color, and more of us judge based on character not color. Yes, there are outliers, there always are. But these outliers are just that.
But, the Left cannot let this be the narrative, and, they have turned “racism” on its head. Once being color blind, not seeing race as an important factor was once the definition of tolerance. Now, anyone who defines themselves as color blind is attacked as racist. White people? They are all racist, even if they have close friends of different races. So called “White privilege”, which is nothing but another concocted load of bovine excrement, is used to gin up hatred towards White people. Most disturbing is the new push towards a new segregation. Minorities, A.K.A. victim groups are told they need “safe spaces” where no White people are allowed. Discussions of race must exclude anyone that isn’t a member of a “victim group”.
Like everything else, “racism” has been turned on its head by Leftists. Perhaps nothing can better illustrate this despicable campaign of racial segregation than racially segregated graduations at Harvard. Yes, graduations are the modern day version of separate but equal.
Two days before Courtney Woods dresses in a cap and gown for Harvard’s traditional commencement, she will don a stole made of African kente cloth and address the crowd at a somewhat different event: a graduation ceremony for black students.
Student organizers said the event, called Black Commencement 2017, is the first university wide ceremony for black students at Harvard and is designed to celebrate their unique struggles and achievements at an elite institution that has been grappling with its historic ties to slavery.
Unique struggles and achievements? Yes, because Ivy League students are sooooo oppressed! Especially at a school with “ties to slavery”.
“I can only imagine how special I will feel when I walk across that stage and be able to honor my identity and my struggle at Harvard,” said Woods, who is completing a master’s degree at the Graduate School of Education. “I know this is exactly what students like me need to be inspired as we leave this place as emerging global leaders.”
Ah he is “special”. He needs inspiration, as if graduating from Harvard is not inspiring enough. Not if you are suffering from Racial Obsession Syndrome to the point that your “identity” is all about your skin color. How sad, how truly sad. But Black students are not the only “victims” of graduating from Harvard.
Similar ceremonies have been held for Harvard undergraduates as well as for students at Stanford, Columbia, Temple, and other campuses. On May 23, Harvard will also hold its third annual graduation ceremony for students of Latin American descent.
And that is not all, now BGLTQ students can segregate themselves and obsess over their “identity” as well
While there is no corresponding “White Graduation” planned, there will be a “Latinx Graduation Ceremony” offered the same day as Black Commencement, and Harvard’s Office of BGLTQ Student Life also held a “Lavender Graduation” for BGLTQ individuals on April 18, during which graduates were given rainbow stoles.
See! Let’s all separate ourselves and climb into identity cocoons! I wonder what other identities will join this campaign of exclusionary
thinking emoting? Let’s see here
How about an Atheist students graduation? They would be safe from any mention of you-know-who by intolerant students who insist on exercising their natural rights of expression and religion.
How about a vegan graduation? No fur, or leather attire allowed, and please eat something before attending because the food will suck!
How about a separate ceremony for left-handed illegal immigrants? As long as we are self-segregating, and we all know how privileged those right-handed undocumented types can be.
Of course, there simply must be a separate ceremony for students who support Sharia Law. No women allowed who are not fully covered of course. And no women grads allowed because women are not to be educated. Also no members of any other faith, and certainly no Gay people, well except those who are going to be thrown from the stage and stoned to death as part of the after graduation revelry. And as an added perk, every graduate gets a “Death to America” stole, and a suicide vest, because tolerance!
Absurd examples? Yes. But what is Leftism if not absurd?
