With “safe spaces” being all the rage these days on college campuses, one would think the ridiculous lengths liberals in higher education go to in order to protect students from being offended would have reached their peak.Wrong.
California State University Los Angeles has decided to take things to a whole new level by debuting segregated housing for black students to help protect them from “microaggressions.”Because that’s not racist at all, right?
According to TheBlaze, Last year, Cal State L.A.’s Black Student Union wrote a letter to the university’s president outlining a series of demands, including the “creation and financial support of a CSLA housing space delegated for Black students and a full time Resident Director who can cater to the needs of Black students.”“Many Black CSLA students cannot afford to live in Alhambra or the surrounding area with the high prices of rent. A CSLA housing space delegated for Black students would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students. This space would also serve as a safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other,” the letter stated.
Robert Lopez, a spokesman for the university, confirmed to The College Fix that the students’ demand for housing specifically for black students had been met, saying that the school’s new Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community “focuses on academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory.”
Lopez said the black student housing is within the existing residential complex on campus.How is this not considered racist? Isn’t this measure essentially stating that black students cannot function normally in campus life due to being frail and fragile concerning these “microaggressions?”
If we’re supposed to be working toward a post-racial society, shouldn’t we be unifying with one another, focusing on our shared connections via the human experience?
Years ago, Obama promised we’d be a post-racial country, a nation where men and women are judged by the content of their character rather than outward appearance.
Well, the exact opposite has happened. Obama and the left’s policies have plunged us back in the muck and mire, back to the early 1960s when our world was split and hurting.Until we put the left out of business and take back our culture with conservative values, this is the way the world will continue to be.
Fractured, divided, and weaker than it ought to be.
