The Campus Life Department Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia will be hosting a recurring social hour for people “of color” only.
In an email that was sent to the students of Emory, DeLa Sweeney, the interim director for Multicultural Programs said “this event is intended to serve as an opportunity for people of color at Emory to connect with one another and strengthen relationships within and across various communities, identities, and positions in the university.” The email goes on to explain that the event is the first of “what will hopefully manifest into a series of annual gatherings that create and add to the tradition of acknowledging, honoring, and celebrating the experiences, contributions, and lives of people of color at Emory.
Note: “People of color” is okay apparently, but “colored people” isn’t.
Sweeney reiterates further down the document that the event will be exclusive to non-white people only. “ECL staff of color are invited to attend this event.” The wording seems to be intentionally made to imply that “people of color” are the only ones invited. As if to suggest that white people are allowed, they just don’t receive any invitations.
This is, of course, ridiculous.
Going into the next segment of the extremely racist email, we’ll play everyone’s favorite game, “if the roles were reversed.” Here is a reworded version of the email, but “people of color” has been replaced with “the proud white race.” Is this going to sound extremely racist? Who knows!
“This event is intended to serve as an opportunity for the proud white race to connect with one another and strengthen relationships within and across various communities, identities, and positions in the university. This is the first of what will hopefully manifest into a series of gatherings that create and add to the tradition of acknowledging, honoring, and celebrating the experiences, contributions, and lives of the proud white race.
Hosting programs for specific communities and affinity groups—in this case community members of the proud white race—is a practice that has been shown to be beneficial for employees and institutions in many fields.”
Wow! That sounds exactly like something you’d read from the Ku Klux Klan. In fact, it is. The following words are taken from a site whose domain name would put The American Revenant on a watch list if mentioned:
“Our goal is to help restore America to a White Christian nation, founded on God’s word. This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races … we simply want to live separate from them.” – A KKK Website
See? The KKK didn’t say they wanted blacks to die, they simply want to separate from them. That’s what the KKK is all about; tolerance, right? So, if the KKK is about tolerance and merely wants to separate from them, then the Multicultural Department of Emory is just about as tolerant as the KKK.
Emory is not the first school that wants to “live separate” from the whites. A parent who was helping their child register for college in Illinois noticed something peculiar. “While helping my son register for college at Moraine Valley Community College, we noticed that the required course College 101 has two sections limited to African-American students.” The course “provides an opportunity to assess your purpose for college, assess your study strategies, set college and career goals, examine your values and decision-making skills, and develop an appreciation for diversity,” according to the catalog description.
A pattern is developing. It’s almost like these black separatists are hiding under the guise of “multiculturalism” to promote the racist and arguably illegal practices. Oh, wait, that’s exactly what they’re doing. In Claremont, California, a group of students in search of a roommate insist that the roommate not be white. The post stated that “POC [people of color] only” will be considered for this living opportunity. “I don’t want to live with any white folks,” the student, Karé Ureña added. When questioned about the racist implications of the post, Ureña responded “This is directed to protect POC, not white people. Don’t see how this is racist at all.”
“People of color are allowed to create safe POC only spaces. It is not reverse racism or discriminatory, it is self preservation [sic],” Sara Roschdi a Latino Student Union member, stated. “Reverse racism isn’t a thing.” Did you catch that? Did you hear the Marxist dialectic this person used to stick the landing after years of mental gymnastics?
“Reverse racism isn’t a thing.”
For once, we can agree on something. There is no such thing as reverse racism, only racism. That’s why you’re a racist, your school is enabling racism, and the entire college system has been infected with this absurd narrative that only whites can be racist, oppressive, mean, or anything else that’s bad. Actually, if these people—sorry, people of color—think only white people can be racist, that means they believe whites are inferior empathy-wise. If you believe a race to be inferior to your own, you are a supremacist.
In another case of college racial segregation at UCLA, in this case dorm rooms, student Michel Meyers argued that college officials have violated California state and federal civil rights laws by “establishing, funding and staffing a ‘racially-identifiable’ dorm for black students only.”
But, just because it’s illegal doesn’t make it politically correct. And if it isn’t politically correct, then it won’t be pursued in a court of law. Welcome to the United States of America; current year.
