If you’ve ever needed any more evidence that our world has been turned upside down by liberals, here it is.Harvard University, one of the most prestigious and liberal-thinking institutions in our nation has decided it is now desirable to hold blacks-only graduation ceremonies. Which apparently means there will be ceremonies for whites only.
After the decades of action civil rights activists have spent supposedly trying to make Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream a reality, where people are judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin, we’ve come full circle.Folks at Harvard are judging solely by skin color.
Per the Daily Wire, “Aside from studying and taking grueling tests, if you’re a minority, the outer pressures of society make the already challenging coursework even more difficult. Knowing this, Black members of the class of 2017 decided to form an individual ceremony. It’s the first of its kind at the school in recent memory and took nearly a year to plan,” reports BET. “The separate graduation is an effort to highlight the aforementioned struggles and resilience it takes to get through those.”
The Root similarly lamented how difficult college life can be for minorities: “The ceremony comes at a time when the experiences of Black students on college campuses in America have been marked by incidents of overt racism, microaggressions, passive racist comments, and the marginalization of minority experiences in both reading assignments and learning materials.”
But it’s NOT segregation. Honestly. No really, it’s not.Michael Huggins, a Harvard graduate student who helped orchestrate the separate ceremonies, told The Root that the segregation “is not about segregation.”
“This is an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s Black excellence and Black brilliance,” said Huggins. “It’s an event where we can see each other and our parents and family can see us as a collective, whole group. A community.
“This is not about segregation,” he continued. “It’s about fellowship and building a community. This is a chance to reaffirm for each other that we enter the work world with a network of supporters standing with us. We are all partners.”
Yes, but only if we’re black. All y’all white people can’t be supporters and partners.Remember when we were taught about how horrible the “separate but equal” doctrine was, as codified by the Supreme Court in Plessy v. Ferguson in 1892? It took nearly sixty years to reverse that. And here we are back where we started.
Way to move forward, liberals!
