The left has gone full circle on the issue of civil rights, and the only thing that’s changed is their intentions.
From the enactment of Jim Crow laws to Woodrow Wilson’s segregation of the federal civil service, the left has been no friend of Civil Rights historically.
They have managed to rebrand their image on Civil Rights. But while their intentions may have changed, the results of their ideas clearly have not.

In order to help black males graduate, the University of Connecticut is constructing a dorm with a living space only for them.Called the ScHOLA2RS House, the living community for African American males is set to open in 2016. According to UConn’s website, the ScHOLA2RS House is “a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs.” Dr. Erik Hines, an assistant professor of educational psychology and the future faculty advisor to those in the dorm, said UConn will implement the living space as a “forward-thinking” solution to the fact that black male students graduate at a lower rate.
“It is a space for African American men to one, come together and validate their experiences that they may have on campus. Number two, it’s also a space where they can have conversation and also talk with individuals who come from the same background who share the same experience,” Hines told WTIC-TV.
One lefty student defends the new safe space:
“The white portion of the University of Connecticut is probably not ready for it,” Isaac Bloodworth, a puppetry major, said of the criticisms. “You have people who are going to go against it because they are just racist and they see this as a form of segregation or that we’re getting better things than they are.”
In the 1800s liberals supported segregation to enforce racism. In 2016, liberals support segregation to fight racism. Can someone explain this?
